IMPERIAL RESURRECTIONS
Every so often European mon
archists revive an anti-Republica
whispering campaign, fill the pap
ers for several weeks with scar
stories about the attempted retur
of one of the overthrown monarch
to his throne, and then the popu
lar governments settle down to an
other long stretch of uninterrupte
republicanism. The latest gossi
which has been heard to some ex
tent on the continent is that th
former Austrian royal family, th
Hapsburgs, have been negotiatin
with France for their return ti
Vienna.
Ever since the former Crow
Prince Otto reached the age of 1:
there have been repeated rumorso
a coup d'etat which would plac
him on his father's throne. The
have, however, amounted to noth
ing more than the usual ant
republican propanganda. At time
extreme members of the Germa
National party have thought tha
the presidency of Hindenburg woul
ultimately result in a return of the
Hohenzollern family. A recent dis
patch from Paris indicated plan
by royalists to overthrow the re
publican administration in 1935
Greece has also had its periodi
spasms of recurrent monarchism
all of these have amounted to nothl
ing.
Some of the more far-sighte
diplomats see in the Franco-Austri
an story, however, the latest at
tempt of the French government t
fight the Austro-German economi
union, which it fears will eventual
ly blossom into a political alliance
Should the royal family be return
ed to power, under the auspices o
the French government as it were
it might refuse to continue nego
tiations with. Germany on the sub
ject, in spite of the economic unit
of the two countries.
Whether or not Austria, and per
haps Hungary, needs or wants
return to the monarchist govern
ment, is a moot question. Never
theless, in the whole matter of th
proposed Union, France has main
tained her usual selfish attitud
