The prosecution of the editor of the
Gotha Tagblntt has added now and ap
palling terror to the doctrine of lese
xnnjoslns. Heretofore it 1ms boon Bup-
posed that only the sovereign and his
immediate family were within range of
the law ; but the Gotha editor happened
to sny something unpleasant about
Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria , who Is
only second cousin or something- that
sort to the duke of Saxo-Coburg-Gotha _ ;
nnd presto , ho was hauled before the
court on the charge of wounding the ma
jesty of tho' reigning family. Now it ap
pears that the hou&o of Gotha Is rolatciu ,
uy blood or marriage , to nearly nil the
ruling- houses of Europe , and , in fact , nil
.thoso kings and queens and emperors
mo interlaced together in such a way
that they would bo considered , in ordi
nary life , us ono connection , Tor in
stance , the queen of Enplnml is grand
mother to the Gorman emperor ; slio is
also mother-in-law to n slbtor of the Rus
sian cnr , and sister-in-law to the duke
of Gotha. She Is related , more or less ,
to the kings of Belgium , of Denmark ,
of Greece , to the royal house of Sweden ,
through Denmark to tlio Austrian
court , through the widowed Stephanie ,
ami to the king of Portugal ,
through eomo round-about con
nection of that house with tlio Coburgs ;

other of the lessor reigning princes.
Dom Pedro , the ox-emperor of Brazil ,
us a kinsman of the Coburgs , should bo

law to the king of Portugal , So all

intor-marrlago that Europe may almost
1)0 ) fcnid to bo ruled by a number of fami
lies united in ono and forming a far more
powerful dynastic combination than
over existed in the world's history ; for
in olden times kings and queens often
chose their consorts from among tholr
subjects , and each royal house main
tained Its distinct individuality. Now
when one looks , for Instance , at a pic
ture of the young German emperor , ho
sees George III starting from behind
one side of the canvas , and the late
Kaibor William from the other
nldc. The distinctive Hohonzollorn
features have a given plnco to a
mongrel of Ilnnoveriii and Prussian , with
u strain of the ancient Stuart ,
As Europe , therefore , is virtually
ruled by ono family , the man who dares
to joke on European soil about any mom-
be r of the family incurs n serious risk.
Two Frenchmen were traveling vo
contly through the territory of a Ger
man princeling when ono of them re
marked that the prince , who was taking
a walk around his kingdom to got up an
nppotlto for breakfast , had a largo noso.
"O no. " replied the other , "it ,1s com-
niun' " ( common ) . "You mean'connno
deux1 ( like two ) , " was the witty reply.
The joke was overheard and cost tlio
week's ' incarceration. In
jokur a anoth
er instance , Anderson IIcolls , an En
glishman , made n remark in .Munich
recently in regard to the insanity of
King Otto of B.ivnrhi. Otto is not only
liibano , but under confinement as a luna
tic , and allowed to Indulge in the mur
derous pleasantry of , us ho supposes ,
shooting pheasants from his castle" wall ,
countrymen being trained and well paid
to drop at every discharge of his actual
ly harmless weapon. All this is well
known , yet to allude , except in u
distant and dulicato manner , to
the royal malady is a criminal olTonso
ns Jlr. Ileolh learned when ho was
confined for a day nnd night in tlto cells
occupied by suspected thieves nnd other
law-breakers. Only the energetic medi
ation of friends saved him from a worse
fate. Nor is it safe to speak ill of n
prince because you are some distance
nwny from the dominions of his
immediate family. As above stated ,
nearly all the sovereigns ol
Europe nro nt least cousins to caoli
other and are vigilant in protecting encli
other from vulgar criticism. It is dllll
cult for nn American to imagine , for hi
st mice , the condition of affairs thai
mnkes it a crime to bay that prince 01

Borne questions , they uro united as tc
the wisdom of enforcing this gag 01
freedom of speech ,
Ono of the most cruel instances of tin
enforcement of this arbitrary law was ii
relation to the late Prineo Rudolph o
Australia , the heir apparent to Urn
crown , who shot himself or was shot b ;
au angry husband in consequence ot i
dUgrncoful affair with n worn in. The
prince , who WM noted for his Inck of
honor and scrunloln such mtitters , chose
a" peasant girl of Slyrln. for ono of his
victims. Ho encountered the girl while
shooting chninoU nerzbcg and caused
her to bo lured to Vienna. The girl's
father , tin honest mountaineer , learned
of the abduction and in his anguish
called down the malediction of heaven
on the princely reprobate. To got rid of
him lie was arrested on a charge of In
sulting royally , put through a mock trial
and hurried away to the Gnliclnn mines.
Ueforo many months , however ,
Rudolph's dissipation's led to hta mys
terious and tragic , death ; nnd the old
mountaineer was avenged. The present
kaiser of Germany was n bosom friend
and associate of Hudolph-nnd they often
joined in innocent and , perhaps , other
Kind of snorts. To this dny ho will nor-
mil no disparaging utterance regarding
his dead companion nnd ho not long ago

In Russia the law of lese inajestas hns
reached its highest European develop
ment Indeed , in that country , to make
a disparaging remark about the c/ar is
treason and punished with the knout , if
the olTondor is a person of low degree ,
and Siberia If the prisoner Is of respect
able condition. In either case the
penalty Is death , the punishment of the
knout bointr quicker and perhaps more
terrible. The instance of Count Oalklno-
Driescn is ono of the most noteworthy in
recent Russian history. "While at a
ball in St. Petersburg ho was overheard
to make a remark , Intended to bo
jocular , about the late eznr and Princess
Uolgorouki. Nothing was said to him
that night , but the following day the
count disappeared. A carriage had
called for him at his residence ; ho had
gone on urgent business , and that was
the last known of him by his family.
Application at the police olllco elicited
a shrug of ignorance. As a matter of
fact , the regular police were ignorant of
his fate , although they had evidently re
ceived a hint from a quarter not to bo
disobeyed that it was none of tholr busi
ness. The count was in the hands of the
secret police , that body of political
agents more terrible than the sules of
the Venetian Council of Ten , because
the power behind them is bo much more
far-reaching. It is the head of thlsforco ,
General Sliokedo , who has recently
been promoted by the czur to a scat in
the imperial senate in reward for his
utterly unscrupulous subserviency to the
autocrat of all the Russins. Where
Count Gnlklno-lMesen was temporarily
immured is not known , for ho never
came back to tell the story. His faith
ful wife died of grief nnd anxiety , and
his youthful son , frowned on by the
authorities , but always without any ex
planation as to the cause , sought to
drown his recollections in Parisian dissi
pation. A few years after the count's
disappearance , aud when the present
czar had arrived at the throne , some
thing of the truth came to light. An
escaped Siberian exile brought to Zurich ,
with the story of his experience , word
of a noble Russian whom ho had soon In
the chain gang at Tomak , and who im
parted to him that ho was the Count
Galkino-DHcson , punished for no cause
that ho could think of , unless it was a
thoughtless remark to his partner of the
dance at a ball in St. Petersburg. The
two exiles were interrupted before the
count had time to tell his story. A dny
later , for some alleged act of insubordi
nation , the count was drafted to the
Sagllen mines , and that , the escaped
Siberian suid , meant at the best ono
year more of mortal existence. In Rus
sia no ono who regards his liberty of life
dare breathe an utterance that might
seem derogatory to the autocrat who
holds the lives and fortunes of more than
one hundred million in the hollow of his
hand and whoso predecessors huvo had
their despotism tempered only , as the
saying'is , by assassination.
The secret police report directly to
the czar. Their operations are irre
spective and independent of the regular
tribunals , and if an olTondor arrested for
political reasons is occasionally tried be
fore an ordinary court it is only as a
matter of form and to concede something
to the public opinion of the rest of the
world , for there is no public opinion in
Russia. As a rule , when a person sus
pected of hostility to the government is
arraigned for trial under the provisions
of law applying to general crimes it Is
after the secret police have satisfied
themselves that they have made n mistake -
take and that their suspicions nro en
tirely groundless. Then they bring the
victim before u court as a most conven
ient method of discharging him with
some appearance of regularity.
In Russia , it may bo added , the law ol
lese inajestas is broadly interpreted 0.1
applying not only to the imperial family
but ( . ( Hill public ofllcials. For a Jew cs'
pocially it is a high crime to fail tc
salute a Russian olllcor of any authority ,
high or low , and within a few weeks at :
olHcial who thought that a Jew did nol
show him proper respect had him tied
up nnd lashed so cruelly with theknoul
tliut the olllcinl's own wife bogged him
to spare the man , who , but for this in-
torcs'.lon . , would have perished undei
ths blows. This is one of the many well'
authenticated instances of horrible cru
elty toward the Jews in llussia. The
proverb says' that a cat may look at t
King ; but"a Jew may not look nt t

o loan the standard.
Tlio Prominent I'nrt They Piny in
The last generation , to go no farther
bnck , 1ms witnessed an extraordinary
collection of books , centering about the
chief origin to this great Intellectual
activity , snys the Atltnntlc Monthly.
Any ono who will compare such a book
ns Flcotwood's "Llfo of the Savior , "
with Farrnr's or Edorsholm's "Llfo of
Christ" will BOO nt n glance the differ
ence in the attitude of the writers. Now
it was inevitable that when the art , as
dominated by Protestant thought atid
relieved of formal church patronage ,
shoiihl ngain approach biblical subjects ,
and especially the central subject , it
should express itself In more exact
term's whether the form was pictorial
or literary. Not merely the education
of the artists , but tlio education of the
spectators , has compelled Mr. Hotmail
limit to make his "Christ in the Tom
pie. " his "Flight into Egypt , " and hi
"Wounded in the House of His Friends-
scrupulously oxnctnrclucologieally. Mr.
Ford Alndox Brown , if ho css.iyes to portray
tray the raising of the Shunnmlto's son ,
does not for a moment think of disclos
ing the Interior of a Manchester house ,
with a Church of England clergyman to
act the part of Eltshn , as his Venetian ,
or Florentine , or Nethorlnnd predeces
sors in the snmo Held might have done ,
mutatis mutandis. 15ut nowadays it is
not pictorial art , it is literary art , which
is likely to busy Itfaolf with Scriptural
subjects , partly because the whole drift
of training for painters is in other di
rections , but more because the literary
artist is surer of an audience than the
palntor is of spectators. The first form
of literary art to feel the influence of
which wo have boon speaking was the
poetic and dramatic. Longfellow's
"Ghrlstus"ln its lirst division , several
of Browning's and Story's poems occur
at once as oxntnples. But as
there are a hundred successful novels
to ono Biiccorsful poem , though
there probably are nearly nq many
persons who in secret think they can
write poems at there are who openly
profess an ability to write stories , the
form of fiction is that which ui.iy bo
counted on as most likely to engage the
attention of these who lay hold of that
great body of material which lies in and
about tho'blblo for the purposes of their
art. The way has been made plain by
the abundant biographical studies which
have appeared. Those have ncoustomed
the reading public to n treatment of the
biibjects detached from a strict biblical
form. From a life of the Christ which
builds up n conjectural youth out of two
or throe texts of Scripture for a founda
tion and a vast amount of Judaic lore for
u superstructure it is but a step to a
story which imagines the same period
without the necessity of a constantly
guarded "From our knowledge of other
Jewish youths wo may suppose , " etc.
There have been several stories of late
which , with more or less boldness , oc
cupy this field of Now Testament life
and character.Vo took occasion upon
its appearance to speak briefly of the
ono which was most in the public oyo.
General "Wallace's "lion Ilur. " Proba
bly the success of that novel had some
thing to do with the multiplication of its
class , but wo have tried to show that
some such manifestation was to bo
looked for in the promises. It is noticeable -
able that , so far , thcbo books refrain
from making the central figure of all
humanity the central figure , convention
ally , of a piece of fiction. For so much
reserve lot ns bo thankful. But wlrit
the novelist gains in decorum by such a
method ho loses in art. There can be
no middle cholco between a deliberate
converging of all lines toward this center -
tor , slnoo center it already is in the
reader's mind by an irresistible force of
association and a moro ( illusive treat
ment. The author of "tien Hur , " with
tv correct instinct , clearly had
this in mind , and strove to di
minish the actual presence of the
Christ as a character in his story , leav
ing him rather an influence. "So , too ,
with n somewhat similar purpose , evi
dently , Mr. Urooks , in his story , "A
Son of Issachar , " scarcely introduces
the Christ at all , though many of the
scenes take place about him , and now
nnd then ho appears as an actor. Kov-
cronco is the soul of great art , nnd no
ono can miss It out of his own nature
and expect others to find it in his work.
It is noticeable that while men of
murkcU literary power have been
tempted by the subject of early Chris
tianity , as Kingsloy in 'Mlypntiii , "
Ware in "Aurolian , " no ono has yet at
tempted to take the next step and deal
with the Christ. Wo have hinted at
borne of the reasons. The underlying
beauty of the Now Testament narativo
is an additional reason. A sister art
like painting may interpret , but literary
art knows its limitations. It will bo
boldest in the forms of poetry nnd the
drama , but fiction turns away. There is
ono subject before which great fiction ,
with all its mirror-like po\\er , drops its
eyes , and that is truth incarnate.

W"e intend to turn the overcoat trade of Omaha "upsido
down" for the next few days as it was never turned before. Our
buyer displays his nerve by malting a second purchase this sea
son of a manufacturer's entire stock of overcoats. There are
enough overcoats in our store today to give one to every man in
a small city , and they've got to be sold.
It took nerve to buy them and it takes nerve to sell thcra at
the prices we're going to make.
Today we will begin the greatest
Special Sale -of OVERCOATS.
Omaha ever saw , when we will sell
A beautiful all wool wide wale overcoat for six dollars.
A splendid chinchilla , for six fifty.
A twelve dollar Kersey for eight dollars.
A sixteen dollar Kersey for ten fifty.
A Kersey sold the world over for eighteen dollars , for twelve fifty ,
A handsome twenty dollar Kersey for fourteen seventy-five.
A ten dollar Chinchilla Ulster for seven fifty.
An excellent heavy Irish Frieze Ulster for nine seventy five.
A heavy fur trimmed Storm Coat for ten fifty.
To add interest to the occasion we have reduced the price on several lines of fine
overcoats to a limit that makes them to-day the cheapest fine coats in America.
Remember , the prices advertised are by a house known as one of the cheapest
clothing-houses in this country , if not THE cheapest , and every price is guaranteed by
a house that says to its patrons : "If you're not suited in your purchase in any shape
or manner , you'll get your money back. "
