Rome.—Victor Emmanuol III la
monan h of the moat democratic king-
dom Id the world. When the plain
peoplf of Italy finally forced the nation
into war for the unredeemed Italian
JanclB of Austria, their democratic
king decided to ahare his soldiers
hardships. His action in taking the
.Held and turning tha scepter tempo-
rarily over to liia uncle, the duke of
.Genoa, has been received here with
the wildest enthusiasm and the house
of Savoy waa never more popular than
Their monarch just suits Italians.
He la more like an American president
than a European king. Italy for the
most part In Intensely republican, with
a leaning to socialism. It is greatly
tinctured wtrh American thought due
to the close connection brougnt about
Dy the return of emigrant* from the
His majesty la also republican, with
a drift toward socialism. He has made
three leading sociallata senators and
has shown in various ways his deter-
mination to solidify his people by ex-
hibiting his tolerance of this most
radical section of his subjects.
He also requested that his name be
Included In the list of electors. He
Inaiats that he be considered an ordi-
nary citizen and he never misses re-
cording his ballot at the polls after
the fashion of President Wilson.
In some ways the king resembles
Theodore Roosevelt. He was a sick-
Jy child like the colonel, and brought
himself to a hardy manhood by Spar-
tan methods He Is a man of almost
unlvurst.l knowledge, Interested In ev-
«rythti>F. much like the Oyster Bay

the battle lina to the other encourag-
ing his troops. But Victor Emmanuel
possesses too good sense to Interfere
with his general staffs In the actual
planning of the campaigns.
He Is a gallant horseman and thla
Is a source of gratification to the Ital-
ians. for their cavalry la not surpassed
anywhere In the world. The Italian
army officers generally bring back the
Important prizes in every horse show
In person Victor Emmanuel is thor-
oughly Italian. His short, powerful
figure, sweeping mustachios and cast
of countenance are of a general type
often observed throughout Italy. He
is fairer than most of his people, how-
ever. and blue-eyed.
"J'ertainly King Victor Emamnuel is
the right man in the right place—the
king Italy needs In this supreme mo-
ment," said the poet Gabriel^ d'An-
uun/.io recently, after an Interview
with the monarch.
"It would be Impossible to imagine
a better informed man," he continued.
"On hearing him speak one might al-
most receive the Impression at one
n; anient that he was in Paris convers-
ing with a statesman thoroughly con-
versant with the subject from the
French viewpoint; at others In Berlin,
talking with a minister of the German
emperor, or In London, in Vienna or
Petrograd. The Balkans and East-
ern Mediterranean ara so familiar to
hlni that he might have lived there all
"His lucidity of mind is astounding,
and only surpassed by his unpreten-
tious manner, which puts one com-
pletely at ease. There Is amazement
that this ruler. In addition to ful-
filling the duties of state, could ab-
sorb so much kuow ledge and possess
such a clear and certatn perception
of foreign countries. Interest and men
Wat Sickly Child.
When the king was a child he suf-
fered so badly from rickets that he
could not walk upstairs and had to be
carried. Rarely has a sicklier crown
prince been seen. King Humbert
placed him under a stern military tu-
tor, Colonel Oslo, who put the little
prince through a most rigorous course.
He sltfyt always in a cold room and
took a cold bath at daybreak. Then
caine a frugal breakfast. Lessons fol-
lowed, with special emphasis on those
he disliked most. Before the morning
was over the prince was in the sad-
dle. No matter how bad the weather,
he rode daily. Often he returned to
the palace soaked to the skin from a
He disliked muBlc, a predilection
which he retains. When he was ten
years old he remarked to his piano
teacher, Slgnora Ceraaoll:
Don't you think that 20 trumpets
nre more effective than that piano of
In his military studies he made rapid
progress. He submitted to all Colonel
luio'8 harshness without a murmur.
He often relate* at one of the pleee
anteet memories of his life, t.ls Im-
pressions when King Humbert *rtt
entrusted to him the command of a
company on foot, at the annual review
jf the Roman garrison
"The excitement Interfered so great
ly with my power of sight." he once
said. "t'uat the only people I recog
nized in the cheering crowd were my
dentist and my professor of mathemat-
Then a few yearB later he received
the command of the army corps at
Naples Frivolous and light-headed
Neapolitan society looked forward to
a w01 Idly-minded prince and rejoiced,
but It soon discovered its mistake.
The prince, scorning pleasure, de-
voted himself exclusively to his pro-
fession and left his barracks only to
go straight back to the CapocUmonte
palace, where he spent his spare time
in perfecting himself In the study of
Steps Into the Gap.
Then, on July 29, 1900, his father
was assassinated at Monza by the an-
archist Brescl. The son stepped Into
the gap Immediately. When the prime
minister suggested that a proclama-
tion should be addressed to the peo-
ple and gave a copy to the king. V ictor
Emmanuel told the minister that he
had already written the proclamation
When the body of King Humbert
was brought to Rome it was found im-
possible to dissuade Victor Emmanuel
from passing through th'3 whole city
on foot and following tha beloved
corpse even to the tomb lu the i an-
This Illustrated another trait of the
king's character, a destre to escape 'ha
guards who surround and protect htm
"To get away all I have to do Is to
borrow a motor car," he once said
' The queen and myself had a splendid
day out tn the country by ourselves
the other day. I noticed that Ira Nel-
son Morris, the United 9tat.es commis-
sioner of t' Panama-Pactflc exposi-
tion. owned a very good F*iat car. I
asked him to lend it to ma for a day,
and the queen and I went out to Cas-
te! Porzlano and had lunch tb r«. No-
body^ecognlzed us, not even the po-
lice, who had a holiday."
The king and queen lead a very sim-
ple and informal life for the most part.
There is scarcely more ceremony than
in the White House. The king does
not spend much on his table. Tha
Italians often eom&lain that his wines
are an Injustice to the country. What
he saves on his cellar the king prob-
nbly spends on charity, for he is the
leader in every good cause.
As an Illustration of his actions In
an emergency an Incident of the f ala-
brlan earthquake of 1905 may be cited.
When the news of thiB disaster ar-
rived, the king was holding a grand
hall In his castle at Racconlgi. With-
out an instant's hesitation he fiutlg a
cloak over his uniform, hurried off to
the scene of action and tirelessly
helped in rescning hit bepttM tub-
jecti. S3 freely did he expose himself
that e^meone ventured to rsmonetrtte
•Why run these unnecessary risks?"
urged the courtier.
"It is my trade," answered the king
