Thc  President took seats  side, by side and, the vehicle started  off surrounded by several smuidrons  of cuirassiers towards the Avenue d  'Opera. The front around the opera  house was packed for 200 yards and  thc avenue was packed with a dense  throng that awaited the passing of  the royal and presidential parties.  When the King's carriage passed at a  gallop, followed by others, containing  lhe diplomatic corps and ministers,  the crowd veiled itself hoarse, shouting, "Long live thc King," Long live  the I'res idea i." The procession ar-  lived al tiie. end of the Avenue tie"  'Opera and under the place Theatre  Francis, at least lfi.OOO in .tlie Rue  de Rohan, a short .street, funning  practically a continuation of Ic Avenue de 'Opera, right opposite the  gateway of the Louvre, leading to-  the place 1'a.t'ous.seli. There just a  few yards before reaching the Rue  Rivoli a man sprang forward with  his arn,. raised in lhe air, and before  the police could prevent him, he,  without uttering a word, threw the  projectile in (he direct inn of lhe royal carriage.

The  steel'plates speedily became hot, and  the captain, to save thc ship, reversed his course.and steamed for Liverpool.      On lifting   the hatchway       a  cloud  of smoke  rushed .out followed  by  flames.   Heroic efforts  to locale  thc fire were made by the crew, several of whom repeatedly risked, their  lives.    No sooner had one man been  hauled   out,  blackened  and  gasping,  than another  took his  place.  Water     was.poured  into the hoill  arrd the bunkers, but tho vessel grew  hourly   hotter.    Tho  dash  for  Liverpool was the vessel's* only hope.  Although full steam was on, the Highland   Brigade  could   only  make, thirteen  knots,  but  fortunately  the sea  was  calm and  the   race  against the  lire was won.

Chrislania,   Norway,   June   L���������All  parly  feeling has  been   obliterated in  the  face  of thc crisis between  Norway and Sweden, and the Vholc country   is  of  one  mind.   But  the people  and  tlie newspapers .preserve a solver  and  unprovoealive  temper, and  there  is a complete absence of any warlike  fooling.   Af the same) time, Norway ^  defences are said to be in far hotter  stale than they were, during the Crisis of 1895.      The fact that General)  Krohn,    commanding the Trondjhcin  district,      accompanies   thc    Crown  Prince lo Berlin is regyirded as show-}  ing that   on neither side of- the frontier is thc war considered probable.

JAS.   A.  SMART.  Deputy Minister of tho Interior.  Department  of the Interior;  ������������������  in  "GflLEDONIAN"  .        .   --  ...  Washington .'that Aineri-  caan should    see Russia     with their  own eyes, and    that'news-should ^ot  take on an English color   by   reason  of our    receiving it  from, London.   I  said that we felt a "large sense of responsibility.   Every     dispatch of the  Associated     J^ress  was' read by one-  half   the; population     of-the United  Slates.   I added that Russia and the  United States     were either to grow  closer  or  they   were   to  grow  apart  ami we were anxious to do whatever  we properly might to cement thc cordial  relations that had exrsteh for a  hundred years.  His Majesty replied: "I too, feeL  my responsibility. Russia and the  United Slates are young','developing  countries, and there is nol a point  at which they should Le at issue. I  am most anxious that the cordial  relations should not only continue,  hut grow." '  "When assured,     in response to an  enquiry,    that the     Emperor desired  me  to     speak  frankly,   1 said:.   "We  come here as friends,     and it is my  desire that our     representatives bere'  shall treat liussia as a friend; but it  ���������is  the very essence    of  the proposed  plan    thai   we     be free     t0 lei I thc  truth.   We can not be the mouth-piece  of Russia, we cannot plead her cause  except in s0 far as     telling the truth  i" a friendly spirit will do it."  "That is all     we desire,.' His Ma  jesty replied, "and     all that we "can  the   ask of you." He remiested mc to re  "������e- count the specific things  I had  mind.  "1 "told the Emperor that the flues-  , tion of rate and     speed of transmis-  f sion had .fortunately been settled  by  his ministers, and,that the two questions     I desired .to     present to him  were  those     of an   open  door in all  departments,     that we might secure  ,he    1,ews.' and     the removal of the  censorship.  " It seems  to  me, Your  Majesty, " I .said,     tjIat the censorship is not, ono.y valueless from your  own point, pf view, but works a 'positive harm.   A wall /has been built uk  around    the   country,  and    the fact  that no  correspondent  for  a  foreign  paper can live and work here has -resulted     in a traffic in    false Russian  news that is most hurtful.  "Today there     are newspaper men  ������.n Vienna,     Berlin and  London who  make  a  living- by  peddlin*;  out    the  jews   of    Russia,      and  it  is USUaIlv  false.   H     we were   free    to tell the  truth in Russia,    as  wc ;.re in other  countries,   !;0  self-respecting  newspaper in the world     would print a despatch    from     Vic���������Jla respecting the  "Menial   affair,   of      Russia,   because  the editor  would fcnow  that if ���������- the  thing were   true it. would come from  Russra direct.   All you do now is to  .drive a    correspondent   to     send bis  dispatched  across   the  German    border, and it     will go from, there without    change.   You are    powerless  to  prevent my sending these despatches,  and all you    do is to anger the correspondent mid  make him  an enemy,  and delay his dispatches, robbing tlie  Russian   telegraph  lines of a revenue  they should  receive.   So it  occurs to  mc that  (ho censorship  is  inefficient;  that   it is    a   censorship which does  not   censor,  hut  arnoys."  "I went over the common experiences of all newspapermen who had  been in Russia, and the Emperor  agt-ced that (he existing plan was not  only valueless hut. hurtful. He said  that if I could slay in St. Petersburg  a week he would undertake to do all  that! desired."  by us'al-  Made to order and Repaired at short  notice.

G.   C.  !    Mr.   Geo.  Tlaiinny  has  received      a  . lei ler from  II. N,  Shoit, of the Victoria  Gun  Club.    Mr.   Short   Is  anx-  jions  to bring a  team  of shooters  to  Ladysmiili   on  Dominion   Day,     providing an appropriation could be ob-  lained      from   the sports committee.  The passage in .Mr,  Shoit's let ler re-  laling  lo. this reads as follows:  I    "If   I remember  rightly,  Ladysmith  holds      ils celebration  on   Dominion  Day,     Isl     July   and   if such  is   thc  jCnsc  il      would  be  pleasant   if your  club could go'  an appiopt iation made  lo      them   for a one-day   tournament  and     have included in  it   a thiee or  six     man  team  race.   As  the above-  haps more than hi.-> two friends who  opposed      h'im in the last provincial  I election.

Il,     will  be   noticed     that the!  ���������wonls     "al   the     expense   of    High '  strict,"  were lidl out.   This mistake  was caused by the dropping of a hue  ol r'typc.
