Is at present the Oordlan knot ot Ger

opposition which has been raised against
this proposition by the : natlonallatlo

has been written in foreign.' and cer

i The party of Centrum, the strongest
political t power; In the land, has aver
since the days of Windthorst had too
w friendly feelings towards the Ouelphs
t not to aaaent to making the only son of
the DUKe or Cumberland ruler of Bruns
wick eren ' If -political tradition - Is
, against - planing; a Guelph upon the
' throne of an Independent state within
, the Oennan Bund., Nor do the Social
lata object to a Guelph on the throne
Of Brunswick. ? ' , .' .
It may seem lnoonslstent that the 8o-
dallsta, with their InclinaUon towards
Republicanism, to not place themselves
. in determined opposiuon to an increase
1 In the number of reigning German fam
lues, hut It should be remembered that
i from a Socialistic point of view Bruns-
, wick win b far better off under a lib-
-. oral Guelph prince, than under an au
tocratlo Prussian ruler, and the Grand
, Duchy Is today being ruled according
, 'to the most approved Russian, atand-
' On the part of the German Agrarian
, party no atones win be laid In the path

Aa a matter of fact the demands of
the Ouelphs hive so many sympathls-
. in voo xuuujrni uu 19 action- to
, prevent them from being realised Is
possible If the . Prussian ' government
t takes the necessary steps to smooth
- the path of the kaiser's son-in-law to
the throne of Brunswick.
Strong Agitation Certain. -
, This does, not mean, however, thnt
the scheme will be carried out without
Violent protest from part of the Ger
man people, Jt cannot be denied that
- the Bundearat will have to go back: on
Its former'resolutlons If it sanctions the
accession of Prlnoe Ernest August. When
, the prince, as it. is said officially, con-
siaera the oath of loyalty he Swore
when he became an officer In the German-
army a sufficient guarantee' of
his good faith, then this . means, of
course, that tha agitators of the Guelph
party will get no encouragement, from
Brunswick, but the Jingoes will certain
ly never lose sight of the fact that his
oath imposes no obligations on any
sons ne may have.
At any rate it is quite sure that
many . speeches warning ' against the
Guelph danger will be made during the
coming session or the Reichstag.
