NotKing Looks Worse Than
Botched Job Printing.
It is a drawback to the business of a merchant or anyone else who uses
it. Botched Job Printing suggests loose methods. Then why not use
the kind printed by the Union? It costs you no' more and gives the
public a good impression of your business. The Princeton Union is
prepared to execute every description of
Commercial and Fancy Printing
at short notice and nominal prices. If you are in need of letterheads,
noteheads, billheads, statements, cards, posters, programs, wedding
invitations or any other work in the printing line, an order for the
same placed with the Union will insure its being produced in an at-
tractive and up-to-date style.

two kinds of Job Printingthat which is neat and

Princeton Union makes it a point to turn out none but the former
kind, and the Union finds this easy because it has the type, machinery
and skilled labor with which to accomplish it.

Conditions Far from Ideal.
News of General Interest
from Three Countries.
Says an exchange: "Of the thou
sands of Swedish-Americans, who
have toured Sweden this summer, and
been bombarded with literature en
couraging them to become residents of
Sweden again, but very few have been
won over to even consider the matter.
Condition's are too cramped and op
portunities too few to encourage one
to sever his relations with America
with its greater personal liberty and
wealth of opportunities. Verily the
work of the anti-emigration society is
of small profit." This is telling the
truth about the situation. The induce
ments offered are so small that it does
not appeal to the Swedish-American
whatsoever. Furthermore, if he has
been here for a few days he has ac
quired American habits to such a
strong degree that it is useless for him
to even try and submit to the old ways
again, which are practically foreign to
him now upon his return. Besides the
average Swedish-American cannot
either bow to the class distinctions,
which meet him at every hand in the
home land. He is not in a country as
free as America and is not used to car
rying his hat in the hand all the while,
and that is practically what he will
have to do in Sweden. The fact, too,
that he may have a little money is not
going to help him over there, socially
speaking. So, taken right through, the
conditions are not favorable for th
permanent return of the Swedish
American to his mother country, and
it is doubtful if the time will ever
come, even though he may be bom
barded with literature, however at
That there was actually a carefully
laid plot to murder the Russian czar
during his recent visit to Stockholm
can best be gleaned from the state
ment made by the arrested Russian,
Ornet, who_now states that the orig
inal plan was to shoot the czar from
a rowboat, which was to have been
placed at the disposal of the would-be
murderer at the Strommen. Selzero
witsch and Serschan, the other Rus
sians at present held under arrest,
have admitted that this was the plan
and stated that they had discussed the
matter in detail with Ornet. Strom
men had agreed to secure the boat and
commit the deed. Ornet was horn in
Pleskau, Livonia, in 1883. He refuses
positively to tell the authorities any
thing regarding himself and states
that his past life and the role he has
played as an anarchist and revolution
ist will never be revealed.
Forty thousand workingmen em
ployed in the paper, woolen and other
similar industries went on a strike a
week ago last Monday. It is feared
that the strike will also spread to the
iron workers of the country. On Aug.
5, a general strike in these industries
was to be declared all over the coun
try. In this connection it may also be
mentioned that not less than fifty-three
thousand workingmen have been boy
cotted by the employers, who refuse
to stand for a further increase of
wages. Those who are thus boycotted
expect some assistance from working
organizations in Norway and Denmark,
so that it will be seen that labor con
ditions in all three countries are far
from ideal at present. The Swedish
government is trying to intervene, but
thus far its efforts in this direction
have proved futile.
An earthquake of small proportions
was felt about 7 o'clock a week ago
last Tuesday evening in Kristianstad
It lasted about four seconds and doors
and windows rattled so that people
were generally frightened. The earth
quake appeared to travel from west to
east, and was accompanied by mys
terious rumblings in the interior of the
earth. The papers have all been giv
ing detailed accounts of it and as an
earthquake is an unusual thing in Swe
den a great deal of speculation as tc
what caused it is prevalent.
A dispatch from Stockholm states
that the revolution in the industrial
world of that city threatens to break
out afresh at any moment, and stu
dents of the labor situation fear the
worst consequences. The young So
cialists are working like beavers and
the city authorities are continually
strengthening the police force.
Owing to the prevalence of cholera
in Russia, particularly in the vicinity
of St. Petersburg, the Russian visitors
to the Stockholm exposition are put
through a careful examination before
they can mingle with the public. A
strict watch is kept all along th"
border and officials are doing their
best to stamp out the plague.

and will make a trip to Iceland in the
near future for the purpose of continu

that he began a number of years ago,
and also for the purpose of giving spe

the temperature of the water at vari

journey in his yacht, "Veselmoj,"'

equipped for all emergencies. Scientists

The members of the peace group of
the French parliament completed their
three day visit in Christiania last
week. During their visit to the Nor
wegian capital, they were the objects
of much attention and entertainment
for them was of a continuous order.
They were during the last evening of
their visit to the city the guests of
honor at the royal palace, when King
Haakon conferred the St. Olof's order
on Baron d'Esturnelles de Constant.
The distinguished gentlemen were
profuse in their praises ot Norwegian
hospitality, and also spoke in high
terms of the picturesque scenery of
the country through which they had
Gerhard Gade, who during the last
twenty-five years has been the Ameri
can consul general in Christiania, died
on his estate, known as "Frogner," in
the vicinity of the capital, aged seven
ty-five years. He was for a number of
years one of the leading business and
society men of the town and had
scores of friends. He spent his early
days in Boston and was married to an
American. Since the family moved to
Christiania he made many visits to the
United States. One of his sons is
Herman F. Gade, who is at present
Norwegian consul in Chicago.
From Melbourne, Australia, comes
the report that Captain Linstol and
fhe men, belonging to the Norwegian
vessel "Orleans," of Risor, have, after
a voyage of 900 miles in an open boat,
arrived at Macquire Head, Tasmania.
The captain and his men left the ship
as it was sinking and by courageously
and patiently sticking to their life
boat they succeeded in making the
long journey of over 900 miles and thus
saved their lives. The remainder of
the crew entered another life boat,
but have not since been heard from.
The Norwegian minister to the Unit
ed States, Ove Gude, is spending the
summer in Norway on his father's es
tate, where there is the beautiful Gude
villa, popularly known as "The Silver
Crown." Mr. and Mrs. Gude content
plate returning to Washington during
the latter part of September and may
prolong their stay until October. Both
Minister Gude and his wife are very
fond of Washington and are very
popular in the foreign colony there.
According to the "Dagbladet' the
Bergen railway will be completed dur
ing the early part of December. This
means that it will also be open for
traffic. The building of this railway
is an important move in the railway
history of the country and is going to
open new avenues of much valuable
trade in that section of the country.
A large number of students from
Copenhagen are going to visit Christi
ania next moiuh. They will be about
150 in number, and will arrive in the
Norwegian capital about Aug. 4. Dur
ing their visit in Christiania they ^ill
be entertained by the Students' club
at the university.
The so-called Hoffgaard forests in
Lier have been sold to A. S. Borrsen.

The Russian czar has suddenly can
celled his contemplated visit to Copen
hagen. No reason is given, but it is
evident tnat he fears trouble. From
Viborg the czar went to Kiel and from
thence to Cherbourg. In the event
that the. czar will come to Copenhagen
at all it will not be until the latter
part of next month. A report from
Copenhagen states that owing to the
contemplated visit of the czar there
was already trouble brewing, for the
revolutionary socialists at once were
up in arms and were appealing a few
days ago to the people to show their
contempt for the czar by keeping off
the streets and by dressing in mourn
ing. Many are of the opinion that
there is no danger awaiting the czai
in Copenhagen and that the police are
fully equal to the situation, but it is
evident that the murder of General
Beckman during the recent visit of
the czar to Stockholm is what caused
him to suddenly postpone his visit to
his kinsfolk in the Danish capital.
The czar has so many ties of relation
ship in Copenhagen that it is little
wonder that he desires to pay a visit
there. It appears that the czar pre

undoubtedly that is by far the safest
