COPENHAGEN, June 6.— The Christi
ania correspondent of the National Tid
enden says:
"It is the general opinion that a dis
solution between , Norway and Sweden Is
now inevitable, but that it cannot oc
cur without removing or suspending . the
existing Norwegian legal power. Before
the end of this, week the Storthing: will
have adopted resolutions which from the
instant they come in force will mean
the dethronement of the King.
"The Norwegians maintain that the
King, by not revoking his veto given at
Stockholm of the law for a separate
consular representation and partly by his.
absence from Norway, has suspended
his rights and duties as King of Nor
way. : ' - \
"Under article XIII of toe constitu
tion, the Storthing will Install a respon
sible government which, in the absence
of the King, will govern , in the King's
name. Notification of eventual changes
in constitutional situations will probably
be given to the powers by special mis
sion."
LONDON, June 6.—Tbe correspondent
of the Daily News at Christlanla, Nor
way, says that the blue book published
a Government order forbidding the en
trance of Swedish warships to Nor
wegian ports without Government per
mission. According to the Swedish au
thorities in London, . the foregoing order
is not connected with the crisis as to
independent consular representation, but
is the settlement of a long disputed
question as to whether Swedish war
ships should be placed on the same
footing with foreign warships.
The Christiania correspondent of the
Times says he believes be has good "au
thority for saying that Sweden has indi
rectly assured Norway that no forcible
measures will be employed to keep her
within the bonds of the, political union.
The correspondent adds that the Govern
ment will to-day definitely place its resig
nation in the bands of the Storthing.
The Daily Telegraph's correspondent at
Christiania says: "Everything, is ' quiet
here and there is a general desire to flnd
a peaceful solution of the crisis. Consid
erable favor is expressed for an arrange
ment whereby King Oscar shall abdicate
in Javor of a younger member of the royal
house, for Instance the Crown Prince's
son WJlhelm."

fire in our warehouse. The fire^ did not touch them, but they were
more or less bruised on the- outside in the hurry; and rush to protect
• v them from fire and water. We guarantee the inside of each and every
one; to .be just; as good as ever. "We are forced toj sell them just as
they are, for bur. shops? -were^destroyed and our warehouse made useless
