issued at Washington on the 6th
inst.,   directing    that   existing
freight regulations be changed to
permit tlio taking of merchandise
from porta of tbo United States
by tbe Canadian I'acilic Railway
to   Revelstoke,  the removal of
tho seals from the cars hero and
the carriage of the merchandise
down tho Columbia lo llie Litlle
Dalles,   will  undoubtedly   vory
greatly   increase   the  shipping
from this place.  Last Benson was
a busy ono lor the stemers on the
river, but this season's shipping
bids  fair to exceed   it several
limes over, and ibo vessels will
ba kept moro tbaj busy from the
opening to the cio.io of navigation.   The carrying of ores from
the mines down tho river for tho
smeller here, will no doubt largely increase the shipping to Revelstoke from down tbe river.   In
addition to this traffic there will
lo added extonsivo shipments ot
flour from Spokane Falls, for the
China trade, which will be carried up the river by tbe steamers
and irom here to the Canadian

The Last Letter.
Editor Kootenav Sun:
My first letter to you re school appropriations, was written iu the
publio interest. Tbe grant has been
obtained. Whether my letter or the
private letters of other inhabitants
had anything to do with it, is not
necessary to discuss, and for myself
I do not care. I feel that the town
ia only receiving justieo, and there is
consequently no thanks due anyone.
As for your correspondent "Pontre,"
neither of his letters have been
written in tbe public interes, and tbe
last shows uiiuiislaknablo malice
toward myself; I shall therefore take
no further notice of him than just to
say in closing, that what he found
regarding my eleotion is a "mark's
nest" and that he has either been
designedly imposed on or is willfully lying, being led thereto by the
animus whioh pervados bim. I incline to thiuk the latter, as a man
wbo shows the cowardice he does ia
capable of lying into tho bargain.
This, so far as I am concerned, will
closo the disputo, Many thanks for
your indulgences.
Robust Robsox.
The dispute between Mr, Robson
and ''Pontre." has passed beyond

Mr. Wm. McKenzie, one of tho

been successful in striking bod rock
in the Last Chance after tunneling a
distanco of 1,400 feet and finking a
blind shaft 20 feet, they aro yet
hopeful that the mine will eventually pay well. It will reqtiiro probably six months' work yet, Becoming
to present indications, but when bed
rock is reached it will surely pay, as
claims on either end of the Lust

A   BAD   MAN.

Census Figures.
On Monday tho work of faking
the census of Canada was begun,
The following figures from the
official record of 1881 will be of
interest. The population by
provinces stood: Quebec, 1,357-
027; Ontario, 1923.2-8; Nova
Scotia, 450,572; New Brunswick.
321,223; Prince Edward Island',
108,891: BritiBb Columbia, 49,359,
Manitoba, 65,954; and Northwest
Territories, 56,446,
Norway Republican.
A Christiana letter to the New
York Tribuno says that in recent
yoars Norwegian statesmen have
often made the boast tbat the
next European  republic would
celebrate its birth at Christiana.
Since tbe fall of the ministry
recently, Herr Stang was heard
to say: The belief seems to be
general tbat tbe requiem over the
lust  conservative   ministry   has
been sung.  King Oscar virtually
admitted  his powerlessncss  to
stem tho republican movement in
Norway when he abandoned bis
resistance to the nomination of
Steen  as Prime Minister.   The
latter has forced the crown to
surrender one by ono nearly all
ils Norwegian prerogatives.   Un-
loss we obtain tho fullest self-
government, the fullest equality
with Sweden, exclaimed Steen at
a public meoting, a few weeks
before   becoming  Premier,   the
union between llio two countries
will    bo   completely  dissolved.
Evcrpihing points, therefore to
tho final separation if Democratic
Norway from Conservative Sweden, and to tbo early establishment of a republic at Christiana.
Stolid Germans Excited.
A   tremendous  sensation  has
been created in military circles in
Berlin by the appearance of a
pamphlet  written  by   General
Bofiaslansky,   of   the   Russian
army od tbe relative strength of
the Frenoh and German military
establishments.   Tho writer as.
serts that the effective military
force of Frnnco is stronger than
that of Germany by 3500 men,
and declrres that if the military
systoms of the two powors remain
unalterod for twenty years, the
superiority  of Frunce will   be
trebled.   Tho artillery of France
tho General says, is altogether
the best equipped or any similar
service  in   Europe,    Germany,
howover, has Do rogiments of cavalry, while France has but 83,
but the latter is alleged to be tbe
moro efficient in the matter of
expert handling.   The German
military authorities dispute the
correctness of tbe figures given
by tbe writer, and ridicule his
deductions.   Still the pamphlet
hus created a great flutter, and it
is stated  upon good authority
that its circulation will be prohibited in Germany.
