ROYAL PRETENDER JUGGED.
The Duke of Orleani Nudilenly Makea Ilia
Appearance la l'arla and la I'runptljr Ar
Pahis, Feb. 8, Hy prompt action tho
Government haa nipped In tho bud what
was apparently intended to bo a Royal
roup rfVtff, modelled after Iouls Nn
poUun's descent upon iloulognn, and tho
consequence Is that the Duke of Or
leans, the oldest son ot tho Count of
ParU, Is In custody.
Thn Duke arrived in Paris yesterday
bearing a letter written und signed by
the Comte do Purls, announcing to thn
faithful and to all other tho Count's
abdication. Ho also hod with htm a
manifesto addressed to the people of
France. Nominally, and according to
the theory of pretenders, a pretender Is
always a king; and therefore thu
Coimtof Paris abdicated thu thronolio
never posftcsscd. Ho consequently ab
dicated his claim as a pretender, and in
virtue of this abdication, all his claims,
rights and titles descend to his eldest
son, the young man now In the hands of
the authorities, Philippe Louis Robert
Duo d'Orleans, who Is therefore not
merely one of many Princes, but tho ac
tual pretender to the throne by vlrtuo
of hla clarma aa tho heir of Loula.
Philippe and also of tho old llourbon
The Duke's coming Into tho country
la violation of tho law banishing all tbo
brads and direct heirs ot reigning fam
ilies la a rash escapade if it stands
alone, hut the fact that ho was equipped
with aa appeal to the Nation showed
his intention and may raakn that escap
ade aerious for him. if it should de
velop that this movement la mado la
vlrtuo ot aa understanding with the
partisans of the monarchy in France it
may bo mure than a mere violation of
the law of expulalon.
Further disposition ot tho case will,
of course, depend upon whether It la
discovered that there was any plot for a
general Royalist movement behind tbt
laddeat The Aaaerlraa Hog.
