I Karl f Mudeira once the Emperor
Charles of Austrlu-Hungury und now
the lust of the Hnp&burgs nml an
exile and international outlaw.
CI nrles and Zitn are in a villa on
the Islaiul of Madeira nml have be
gun their llle of ex-lie us, decreed by
the allied council of ambassadors.
They arrived from Constantinople on
the British battle cruiser Cardiff.
As thev motored to their villa
crowds gathered along the way and
cheered them. Their seven children wUl be taken
to thein from Switzerland.
Charles and Zlta, us everyone knows, sought rp
fuge In Switzerland, after the collapse of the cen
tral powers in 1018. The Swiss government was
not enthusiastic over Charles, but consented to
allow htm to remain within Its borders on the
distinct understanding that he would hold aloof
from any movement whatsoever for the recovery
of "tho thrones that he had lost and against the
new goeriinients, duly recognized by the powers
of Europe, that had been established In his former
Lust spring Charles nbused the hospitality reluc
tantly accorded to him by the Swiss government,
lie left his hwiutlful residence on tho shores of
Lake (Jeneva, and proceeded In disguise to Hun
gary, turning up at the royal palace ut Budapest
and requesting the regent, Admiral llorthy, to sur
render to him the supremo power to which tho
admiral had been elected by his fellow citizens.
The admiral quite naturally refused, and the coup
came to a paltry end. Churles was turned out of
the country without he or his followers muklng
Switzerland announced that It would no longer
harbor him within Its borders, but relented at the
pressing Instnnce of the powers of the entente,
who nt the moment did not quite know what to do
with him. So he wus allowed to rejoin his family
In Switzerland In return for his giving his pnrole
und pledging his most sacred word of honor that
ho would abstain from any further uttempt to re
cover the Hungarian throne.
Yet despite those solemn pledges, he attempted
last October another coup, leaving Switzerland
by airplane with Zlta and nllghtlng In Hungary.
A number of disaffected troops Hocked to his ling.
Fighting ensued. There was n considerable amount
of blood shed, and the neighboring states went to
tho heavy expense of mobilizing their respective
armies, threatening to lnvado Hungary If Haps,
burg rule was restored nt Budapest. Charles' sec
ond coup ended In dismal failure. The forces that
he gathered uround him were surrounded and
crushed, whllo he himself wus taken prisoner.
Then crime the question of putting him where
he fehould bo harmless. The congress of Versailles
had adjourned, but It had delegated Its powers to
n commission composed of Its ambassadors, which
laid becomo a more or less permanent body, nml
represented the views of their respective premiers,
who constitute u sort of supremo International
ouncll. These ambassadors, In tho name ot the
ongross of Vorbnlllcs and In thnt of tlio supremo
ouncll, decreed Charles of Hnpsburg un Intornu-
outlaw. unworiuy nny longer oi ocjici mm
nn n standing meniico to tho peace of Europe in
tho event of his being left In relative freedom,
since no dependence could no placed upon ins
word of honor.
Charles freely admitted when triKen prisoner in
iHungury thnt ho had broken his plighted word,
(bur miil'ntnlned that no promise that ho might give,
no matter how sacred, could weight In tho balanco
when he felt himself called by his people to resume
Moreover, Charles persistently refused to re
imnce his "hereditary rights." So In November
Charles was dethroned and the Hnpsburg dynasty
was ousted from Hungary by a luw passed by the
Hungarian national assembly.
Portugal, which owns Mudelra, has consented to
the residence of Churles on tho Island nnd has
given assurances that she will prevent him from
making nny further attempts to recover the crown
of St. Stephen. That mny be another story, since
Madeira contains many Germans who largely con
trol the trade and Industry of tho Island. Beside,
the government at Lisbon Is not the strongest In
the world or tho most stable.
Anyway, It's pretty soft for Carl nnd Zlta. They
are treated as honored guests by the governor,
MnJ. Acaclo Corrca Pinto. Their only gunrd la n
plain clothes policeman and his principal duty la
to keep off the beggars.
"It's better'n sawing wood at Doom," the Jlnglo
snys. It may be so. Holland Is not pleased with
the residence of William Hohenzollern In her
boundaries. The only reason she keeps him Is her
time-honored tradition of refusing to surrender
political offenders who hnvo sought refuge on her
soil. He is to nil Intents nnd purposes a prisoner
of state there, Queen "WUhelmlno's government
being determined that he shall have no opportunity
of mnklng llollnnd the place of nny Intrigues or
conspiracies, either against tho German republic
or against tho powers of the entente.
So fur, William Hohenzollern has abstained from
abusing In any overt fashion the unwilling hospital
ity of tho Dutch government. Anyway, ho has
not been caught nt It, and the government keeps
him under the closest supervision, censoring his
mall nnd telegrams and keeping track ofhls visit
ors. So ho has not been guilty of breaking his
parole. And though, probably tho most-hated man
In all tho world, he can not be properly called an
International outlnw, as Is Karl of Madeira. But
If he should ever take It Into his bead to escape
from the Ncthrclnnds, and to return to Germany,
or In any way to disturb tho peace of Europe, ho
would probably be promptly proclaimed by the
council of ambassadors nn International outlaw,
and would be fated to Internment In some remoto
Atlantic or Pnclflc Island. He knows this. And
that's why he's keeping quiet nnd sawing wood
To mime Napoleon nnd then Karl of Madeira Is
strongly suggestive of descending from the sublime
to the ridiculous. Yet It Is Interesting to recall
that Napoleon also broke his parole tlio unpar
donable sin In the eyes of tho civilized world.
Nnpolecn was compelled by tho allies to abdi
cate the Imperial throno of Franco In 1814. Ho
was treated with great consideration. He was per
mitted by the allied powers ussembled In congress
at Vlermo to retain all his civic rights. Ho was
allowed to keep tho title of emperor, lie wus
accorded for life the sovereignty of Elba, one of
the most beautiful islands In tho Mediterranean.
The honors due to a sovereign were left to lilm.
Ho was assured of an annuity from tho treasury
of France, and nil that was asked of him In re
turn was that he should give his parole, pledge, his
most solemn and sacred word not to lenvo the
Island or to take any steps, directly or Indirectly,
to plunge once more all Europe Into tho horrors
A few months later, In 3810, Napoleon deliberate
ly broke ids parole, quitted Elba In secrecy, landed
In France, raised tho standnrd of revolt against
King Louis XVIII and against tho royal govern
ment which had been re-established In Purls. Thus
ho threw down the gauntlet to all Europe. Tho
congress of Vienna, still In session, united at tho
Instance "of tho French plenipotentiary, Prince
Talleyrand, In proclaiming him nn International

That Is why Nnpoleon was not allowed to set

was shipped off to the lonely and remoto Island of

Madeira, compared with St. Helena, Is an earthly
paradise. Madeira, the Portuguese word for "for

and thus Is kept in dally touch with the outsldo
world. The lslnnd. -100 miles west of Morocco, hns

What of Hungary's future? Though the Hops
burg dynasty has been ousted and Charles Is In
exile, there are other Hnpsburgs. Oenernl Lehnr,
who wns Churles' Hungnrlnn supporter in tho Octo
ber flnsco, hns disappeared ; his brother Franz, Vien
nese composer of the "Merry Widow," Is searching
for him. Admiral Nicholas llorthy Is regent of
Hungnry and Hungnry apparently wants a mon
archy and mny make him emperor.
Ferenc Vecsey, tho Hungarian violinist now In
this country, Is n cousin of Regent llorthy. Ho
"Hungary desires n monarchy, but not a Haps
burg monarchy. To understand the way my peo
ple feel, you must remember that government und
religions In their country go hand In hand. Ours
wns an apostolic monarchy. The ruler wore the
crown of St. Stephen.
"But the Hnpsburg family is thoroughly hated.
It Is decadent house. Whnt Hungary needs Is new
blood. Admiral llorthy represents the people. lie
iias their Interests ut heart. Ho Is clean, ener
getic, patriotic and endowed with a strong charac
ter, lie has completely reorganized the army,
"The carving up of Hungnry only can result In
discontent. We have lost 10,000,000 of our popula
tion, although many have drifted back to the little
Hungary nnd nro living In wagons, In railroad sta
tions, everywhere. The present arrangement can
not bo permanent. Wo must bo given back our
territory, and If necessary, for the maintenance of
peace, an autonomy could be created of a part of
Hungnry, where each of the many nations living
there could speak Its own language. Then Hun
gary, her Integrity restored, should Join tlio llttlo
entente. As It Is now, she Is Isolated."
Does ltegent llorthy want to be emperor? Ap
parently not. Anyway, ho has a position without
precedent nil tho functions nnd authority of a
king without tho title. As everyone knows, he was
a leading llguro In the war. With tho outbreak of
tho revolution which resulted In the Hungnrlnn
republic under Karolyl, he retired to his estates.
But he ciimo back from private llfo to oppose tho
Bolshevists. Parliament made him regent In 1020
and since then has been holding the reins of gov
ernment, never knowing what the morrow mny
"Within a short time Empress Zlta and her hus
band, Emperor Charles, will return to tho throno
of Austria." This prediction was rnndo by the
Prlnco Heno do Bourbon, brother of tho ex-empress
of Austria, who Is In the United States on a busi

Remarkable Similarity of Ideas Noted
Among Nations, Doth of the
Old and New World.
The similarity of Ideas all over the
ivorhl Is found In the similarity of ex
pressions to convey the Ideas. The
old English proverb, "A fool and his
money are soon parted," finds Its
counterpart In tho phrase, "There Is
no medicine for a fool." But the
Japanese also claim that by good
management they can do something
even with fools, when they sny, "Fools
and scissors move luvoidlng to the
mode of ustng them," Some of us car
ry our Latin with us all our lives,
lust because we had a good teacher.
To these, the old Lutln saying. "The
eagle does not catch files," (Aqullu non
caplt inuscas) will recall old memories
of the pride nnd sarcasm of the Ho
niaiis. So also will they be pleased to
read the Japanese aphorism, "The fal
con does not peck at ears of corn."
which Is true, as falcons, especially
those of the peregrine type, are much
more likely to seize and carry small
animals like lambs, rabbits, chickens.
