MILAN I, King of Bervia, Commanding the Army Which has Invaded Bulgaria. The rev.lution that took place in east ern RoumeliH, in Septerber last, upset the arrangements made under the treaty of Berlin, inl 1878. By the union, which it effected,of eastern Roumnelia with Bul garia, unir(ier the government of Alexander P'rince of Bulgaria, discontent was created in Servia, Greece and Roumania. These little states wilsh to derive any profit there may be in ''a new deal," provided that the union brought about by the revolu tion of September, is sanctioned by the powers who were parties to the treaty of Berlin. It looks now as if the policy of the powers is to restore eastern Roumelia and Bulgaria to their (levided. state, and the same relation.. towardsturkey respec tively as before the revolution of Septem ber. While deplomacy has halted, Servia has invaded Bulgaria, and is seeking, doubt less, to make sure of getting territory in return for the blood and treasure spent in the invasion. ...

A Statement by Messrs. Ford and Arnoux. FORT BENTON, December 11, 1885. Editor of the River Press: In your editorial of yesterday (Decem ber 10th), headed "The Cattle Assess ment," you have very grossly misrepre sented the commissioners as to their action in the matter in handE and atsstat@dact~. We trust you will be genePus ad falp minded enough ,to publall s yorlr:da. and weekly the facts as they appear of record of proceedings of the board. The facts are these: The commissioners, at their January, 1885, meeting, instructed the assessor to value stock cattle at $22 per head, horses at $35 per head, and sheep at $2.50, to arrive at a uniform assessment. By petition of sheep owners and subse quent action of the board sheep were re duced 25c. per head. The assessor carried out these instructions, except on stock cattle, which he placed at $25. We do not pretend to deny this as the assessor's right. But at a meeting of the board of equaliza tion the question came up, shall the as sess...

QUE E M1ARIE-CHRI3TINA. Appointed Regent of Spain After the Death ort Her Husband, Alfonso XII. i'ntrrtlnately for Spain, the heiress to the crownl is a little child, the Princess 1'1:i:n d las Mercedes, who was born S,,ptember 11, 1880, and is the daughter of the late kinlg and the lady whoassumed the ticee of regent after his death. Marie I(hri-una can hardly be popular as regent, for as Alfonso's wife she was greatly dis liked by the Spaniards, and it does not applear that she possesses the strength and ability u(ecissary to her filling the exalted station which the infancy of her elder daughter has induced her to assume. The cabinet which appointed her to o.fice had the choice of either her or ex-Queen Isa ahella, who was driven from power in 18(8, for personal vices and fatults as a ruler, which rendered her intolerable to her subjects. This woman talks of leav ing Madrid to avoid being made regent in Christina's place, and it is rumored that Sagasta, the new pre"ier, prefers I...

The polar country is not a Garden of i den-although one writer has tried to prove that it was the original garden itself at one time in the far past- but from my standpoint I consider it a misrepresented country in retard to wild deso!ation and desert drear ne s.
