¡;" MONARCHY OR REPUBLIC? To the Editor of tlte" PreRtatyn Weekly." What is the matter with Quilldriver" this week ? He reeks with revolution. He is surprised at Norway's choice of a king. Is it possible that a respectable little paper like yours, Mr Editor, is in sympathy with his views ? It is to be hoped not. Quill- driver wants to know what your readers think of this choice, does he ? and he airs his own discontent with our beloved Monarchy by his various paragraphs in your last issue. Let me borrow an expression of your own, Mr Editor, and say For Shame, Quill- driver It is a pleasure to know that Norway has by an overwhelming majority shown its loyality by choosing what in spite of the tendency of the age "it wishes for. I hope this firebrand who has sprung up amongst us will get a 'slating. He is wel- come to the views of INDIGNANT. [There is no question of loyalty involved in Norway's choice. Supposing Britain were short of a monarch (a remote possibility !) would her loyalty be in any way conspicuous if she chose as a king an individual from the Sandwich Mauds ? The surprise expressed by Quilldriver is, we suppose, caused by their choice of a king to reign over them when, being an intelligent race, they were quite capable of governing themselves. One would think that the failure of their neighbour the Czar to govern his country well would have been a lesson to Norway.-Ed. P.W.]
