The Tybee Railroad has done the big
gest passenger business this season in its
history. The season on the island has
been very successful, the visitors having
gone done in crowds. Not only have Sa
vannahians patronized the island in great
numbers, but the business from the in
terior cities has exceeded that of past
seasons. If the season that is drawing
lo a close may be taken as a criterion of
those that are to follow, it is probable
that the popularity of the resort will cause
the business of the line to increase with
It is probable that there will be nearly
e month of the Tybee season yet. The
most popular portion of it, however, has
passed. The railroad reports that its busi
ness is falling off daily, but it is probable
that it will continue heavy for two or
three weeks. Not until the travel has
fallen off considerably will there be any
reductions made In the number of trains
that run to and from the island.
Last summer there was a storm alarm
on the island. It was predicted that a
storm-from the West Indies would sweep
the coast, and on Aug. 12 many of those
on Tybee took the warning and came to
the city. There was no storm, at least
it did not affect Tybee. Out at sea and
along the coasts of the Middle Atlantic
and New England states, however, it
wrought havoc. The season did not amount
to anything after that alarm.
This summer there have been no storm
predictions. It is hoped there will be
none. That last summer caused a great
deal of alarm, even though the blow did
not strike Tybee or Savannah. The sea
son has not been interfered with thus far
by news of storms, and it is hoped that
residents may be permitted to finish out
the hot months without having to seek
safety in the city.

THE COBURG SUCCESSION.
How the Dnke of Alltnny Becomes
the Duchies* Ruler.
Ex-Attache, in New York Tribune.
It was in the capacity of a music stand
that I first made the acquaintance of
Queen Victoria's second son, who has
just died so suddenly, as reigning Duke
of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. He was on his
way back from St. Petersburg, where he
had Just become engaged to Czar Alex
ander ll's only daughter, Marie, and had
broken his journey for a few days at Vi
enna, taking up his quarters at the Brit
ish Embassy. Each night during his stay
there was a dinner party, and after each
dinner the Duke was asked to perform
on the violin, his accompanist being in
variably the lovely little Countess Don
hoff, who, after a sensational elopement
with her husband's secretairie d'Ambas
sade and a divorce, is now married to the
aforesaid secretary, at present Minister
of Foreign Affairs of the German Em
pire. I am sorry to say that the Em
bassy furniture did not comprise such a
thing as a music stand, and accordingly
Lady Buchanan amiably suggested that
as the joungest member of the party I
should act in that capacity. Accordingly
a chair was perched on a quantity of big
folios and footstools, and I was estab
lished in the chair, to hold the music book
in a slanting position toward the Duke.
My face appeared above the edge of the
book, and I was consequently compelled
to keep staring at the Duke, while every
time that he raised his eyes from the
notes he encountered my gaze. Perhaps
he derived inspiration therefrom. At any
rate, each evening that he was at the
Embassy he played from the moment
that dinner was over until the party broke
up, and he laid the tired violin to rest in
the ease, covered by the dainty sarin and
lace apron worked for him by his Im
perial fiancee. In that way the Duke be
came as familiar with my features as be
would with those of any other equally
artistic piece of furniture, while his hand
some face and magnificent eyes became
firmly impressed upon my memory. It
is only fair to add that the Duke before
he left Vienna presented to me a charm
ing souvenir in recognition, so he said,
of my "intelligent appreciation of music,”
and tha* this was the beginning of an ac
quaintance marked by many an act of
gracious kindness on his part.
It is owing to the fact that the Duke
of Connaught and his only son. Prince
Arthur, waived their rights of succession
to the throne of Saxe-Coburg that the
young Duke of Albany, son of Prince Leo
pold, who was the most delicate of all
Queen Victoria's children, now sucdeed<
as soverign duke of the two German
duchies in question. In order to under
stand how an English Prince, who is like
wise a British peer, comes to succeed to
the crown of one of the numerous inde
pendent states of Central Europe compris
ed in the federation known as the Ger
man Empire, it is necessary to recall the
fact that Queen Victoria's husband was
the younger of the two sons of Duke
nest I of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. The"
elder of these two sons, Ernest 11, died
a few years ago without issue, his crown,
therefore, devolving on sons of his younger
brother, Albert, Consort of Queen Vic
toria. and who had preceded him. The
English constitution will not permit a for
eign crown to be held simultaneously with
that of Great Britain, and the constitu
tion of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha is likewise
opposed to a foreign ruler becoming sov
ereign of the two duchies. The heir ap
parent of* the British chown can be titu
lar sovereign of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha
until he ascends the throne of Great Bri
tain. but even in that case it Is stipulated
by the Coburg constitution that he should
appoint a viceroy or stadtholder to ad
minister the sovereignty of the duchy, it
being regarded as inadmissable that the
heir apparent to a foreign throne should
actually exercise the duties of rulership
Of the duchy.
In'order to avoid all these difficulties
the Prince of Wales some time before the
death of bis uncle. Duke Ernest of Saxe-
Coburg, waived his own rights and those
of his son and son’s sons to the throne
of Saxe-Coburg. His abandonment was
not absolute, but conditional. True, he
renounced his own rights and those of
his children, but only to the younger
brothers and to their male descendants.
In the event of their dying without issue,
or without ascending the throne of Co
burg and Gotha, the crown of these two
duchies does not pass to the other mem
bers of the house of Coburg, as has been
s*ated, but reverts to the Prince of
Wales, or rather to his son and grand
sons. Thus, if by any misfortune the new
Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha—that is to
say, the Prince of Wales's nephew, now
a delicate lad of sixteen—were to die be
fore attaining his majority the Prince of
Wales would become ipse facto reigning
Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Go4ha, but as
heir apparent to the English crown would
be compelled to administer The sovereign
ty of the two duchies through a viceroy,
who might be his own son, the Duke of
York. The Duke of York would, how
ever, hove to give up the viceroyalty to
some other prince on his becoming the
Prince of Wales himself, while his father,
on becoming King of England, would be
obliged to surrender lo him the title of
Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, as well
as all the revenues of the duchy and the
vast estates which go with the crown.
A Kingdom Without u Court.
The entire affair is somewhat compli
cated, but it is necessary to bear it in
mind, inasmuch as difficulties in connec
tion with the Saxe-Coburg succession
have already and are likely to occur
again. The Coburgers entertain a vivid
remembrance of the fate of the people of
Hanover, who for more than eighty years
were left without even a glimpse of their
English ruler, who pocketed his revenues
as King of Hanover, but neither main
tained a court in the kingdom nor even
visited it. Neither George 111 of Eng
land, nor George IV, nor William IV.
ever took the trouble to run over to see
their kingdom of Hanover while on the
throne of England, and it was not until
Victoria became Queen of Great Britain
and her uncle Ernest, by virtue of the
Salic law in Hanover, became King of
Hanover, that the worthy Hanoverians
knew what it was to have a full-fledged
court. . . .
When the Prince of Males waived his
rights to the throne of Coburg and Gotha
he did so in favor of Ills second brother,
Alfred the sailor Duke of Edinburgh, who
oil the death of their Vncle Ernest, sue
reeded to the throne of Coburg end Gotha.
Duke Alfred had on only son hearing his
name, who died a few days after the cel
ebration of his parents' silver wedding.
The necessity of selecting an heir to the
ducal throne then became apparent, and
Duke Alfred's younger brother. Arthur,
Duke of Connaught, Queen Victoria's sol
dier son, as next in line, was gazetted ns

A VISIT TO EMPRESS DOWAGER.
One W ho Wan Present Telln of the
Historic Event in the Chinese
Frank G. Carpenter, who is now In the
East, sends to the Saturday Evening Post
a long article about the Empress Dowager
and China, his facts having been gathered
only' a few days before the present trou
bles broke out. Two years ago the Em
press Dowager eet aside all precedents
and received the ladles of the foreign le
gations at Pekin. One who was present
told Mr. Carpenter about it. Among other
things she said:
“Her Majesty was dressed in a pale yel
low silk gown, beautifully embroidered
with flowers and dragons of the same
color. She wore the headdress commonly
worn by elderly Chinese women, her hair
being fastened in a knot at the back just
below the c'rown, the front of the head
and a part of the forehead being concealed
by a silk band heavily embroidered with
pearls of large size.
“I was struck with Her Majesty’s youth
ful appearance. She was 64. but she look
ed ten years . younger. Her face was
plump and free from wrinkles. She had
a high forehead, elongated perhaps by the
custom of the Chinese ladies of pulling out
the hair ot the edge of the
forehead with tweezers. She had
a strong face and in youth must
have been very' pretty'. During the audi
ence she frequently smiled, and I could
see no signs of that cruelty with which
she has been charged.
“Her Majesty made us welcome to the
palace and to China. She said she was
glad indeed to receive us as foreigners,
and that we should be friendly with one
another, for were we not ell of one fam
“The banquet was fine, being made up of
many courses and consisting of both Chi
nese and foreign dishes.
“After the banquet the Empress Dow
ager again met informally' with the ladies,
drinking tea with each of them in turn,
and in some cases throwing her arm about
one and embracing her.
“At this time she gave each lady a pres
ent of a beautiful gold ring set with a
pearl as big a© a marrowfat pea, three
silk dresses from the royal looms and a
set of two dozen combs. Throughout the
whole audience she w as exceptionally’ gra
cious, and her manners were as polite and
affable and at the same time as dignified
and ladylike as could be those of any Em
press of Europe.”

Waterbury, Conn.. July 30.—Lying In a
sewer trench to-d3y was an innocent
looking stick of dynamite, left carelessly

years old, a brother of John Phelan, the I

He had no idea it was anything more
