in Sweden, Norway and
King and Queen of Sweden Are Given
an Enthusiastic Welcome to
the German Capital.
King Gustaf and Queen Victoria re
ceived an enthusiastic reception on
their arrival in Berlin, Sunday, June
7. Emperor William and other mem
bers of the German royal family were
all on hand to give the Swedish king
and queen a hearty reception and the
streets were lined with cheering
masses. In the evening a gala ban
quet was given in their honor at the
royal palace. The emperor gave a sig
nificant toast in which he expressed
the wish that the good, relations be
tween Sweden and Germany would
continue and that their trade rela
tions would be improved. King Gus
taf replied, thanking the emperor for
his well wishes, and stated that it had
always been Sweden's aim to become
closer united to the sturdy German na
tion. The receptions to the Swedish
king and queen were equally enthusi
astic in Copenhagen, where they, ot
course, were equally royally enter
tained at the royal palace. During
the course of an address which King
Gnstaf delivered in Copenhagen he
said: "The clouds which have dimmed

Where is Sven Hedin, the Asiatic
explorer? is a question which is gener
ally asked by all those who are inter
ested in this wonderful man and his
remarkable travels. Since last Decem
ber not a word has been heard from
him and many are those who believe
that he has perished. When last heard
from he was in the vicinity of Brama
putra and stated that he intended to
visit the Mansarovar islands. The let
ter was dated Dec. 6, 1907, and he
stated that he was at the time of writ
ing enjoying good health and hoped to
reach Stockholm during the early part
of next month. Some alarm is being
expressed because he always used to
write often and used to send bulle
tins to the daily papers in Stockholm
very regularly.
The cabinet has proposed to the
riksdag that the government shall sell
the Laholm waterfalls to the South
Swedish Power company for 274,000
crowns and that this sum be used foi
the purchase of other waterfalls to be

has already purchased the cataracts on
the Motala river between Roxon and
Norrbysjoen for 2,352,000 crowns also
the Korseforssen in Lagan for 1.283,-
000 crowns the Hammarby falls In
Jarlen for 600,000 crowns, and the
Skeen falls in Bohuslan for 250,000
crowns. The railway commission has
recommended the purchase by the
government of several other water
fails in Lagan for 033,392 crowns.

She has catarrh of the throat and dur

slight fever. She is at present at Ul
riksdal and will most likely remain
there all summer. The other day she
enjoyed a visit from the Dowager
Queen Emma of the Netherlands. The
latter may spend a month or two latei
on at Ulriksdal.

King Oscar's apartments at the

did prior to the king's death. Even

Military requirements are just as
stringent in Norway now as ever.
General Bratlie has proposed that if
a young man who is capable of mili
tary service refuses to serve accord
fc'S to law, he shall forfeit all civil
rights in the kingdom of Norway. As
a matter of fact the government is at
present grappling with this problem
and many officials are in favor of
stringent measures. Yet there are
those who believe that the army can
be kept up without compelling young
iren to serve against their will.
The mints are now busy turning out

purpose of a complete separation of

of which five are to be appointed by
the storthing and four by the king.

Major O. P. Myhrs and wife re
