The Queen and the State.
The Queen of England is reported
to have said, when her attention was
called to the omission to invite Mr.
Gladstone to the Duke of Connaught's
wedding, This is my sou's wedding ;
I shall pay all the expenses." If the
queen reall3T made this reply, it is one
of those unfortunate expressionwhich
monarchs generally live to regret hav
ing made. When the queen replies
to a protest against a slight to one of
England's foremost men, in terms
which seem to view herself apart from

Thu n owes the cu-Cnm-
stancc ot its being of the slightest im
portance that any one was invited to
her son's wedding, to the accident f
being queen of England. As plain
Victoria Guelph, neither her own
wedding nor the wedding of her son
would have any interest for the public
at large. But as Queen of the Nation
tthichhas held the first place in Eu
rope, and to-day in many respects
still maintains its old supremacy, her
movements are telegraphed all over
the world. The marriage of her son
doubtless a very commonplace sort of
a erson (as all the Guelphs are), is a
Mlitical event of marked significance.
The neglect to invite so great a per
sonage as Gladstone, her former prime
minister, could not be regarded as the
eaprice of an uncertain-tempered
woman, but as a premeditated mark
of disfavor b' a sovereign. The re
mark attributed to her intensifies the
offense. The queen pays the expenses
of her son's wedding with the nation's
money, and she is responsible to the
nation for the manner in which she
treats its great men.
