NEWS FROM LONDON. Abraham Lincoln's Funeral A Horrible Story From Moscow. London, March 7. A horrible story comes from Moscow showing how the Nihilists seek to maintain their conspiracy of terror. A mysterious package was left at the ollicial residence of prince Dolgoroukou", Governor General of tho city and Province of Moscow. It was found to contain a woman's head and a letter ill which the writer says he will yet out - do the deeds of Jack the Hipper. The remainder of the body discovered was cut in pieces and packed in two sucks. The corpse is believed to be that of a Nihilist traitress. Largo numbers of arrests have been made, persons suspected of Nihilism being instantly taken into custody wherever found. The funeral of Abraham Lincoln took place at the residence of the American Minister this morning. The services were ! private. Dcsides the members' of the family Col. White, first Secretary of the I Legation, Counsel - General New, Vict ; Consul Johnson and a few friends were 'present. Dev. Monro Gibson, formerly of I Chicago, conducted the ceremony. He made a brief and feeling address in which he I referred to tlie fact that he baptized the lad t now deceased. He exhorted the parents to i fortitude and faith in God. The body was taken to Keusal Green where it was tie - I posited in a vault to await transportation to I America.

Hubert Kerr, says the Tacoina Lfiiger, general passenger and ticket agent of the Canadian Pacific mad, and D. K. lirov - n, of Vancouver, assistant general passenger and ticket agent of the same line, passed through Tacoina last night. .Mr. Krown was cu route to Portland in the interests of bis company, while Mr. Kerr was going to San Diego to attend a meeting of representatives of the transcontinental lines to be held in that city on the loth of March. In speaking of the facilities ottered hy his line, Mr. Kerr said that by the first of October he expected a passenger could board a Pullman in the cities of 1'tiget Sound and step ( il' the same in Halifax, N. S., without change, making direct connection with steamers tor Kuglandor any part of Kurope. In regard to the application for a receiver for the Seattle, Like Shore k Fast - ern railroad, Mr. Kerr said that it was simply a bluff. Tho road is all right, he declared, and w ill soon be completed to the Canadian border. The Canadian Pacilic lacks but twelve miles of track and one bridge to bring the road to the international boundary. W ithout say ing so directly, the ollicials gave the impression that if the La' - .o Shore road conW he pushed to completion, it would be taken in hand by the Canadian Pacilic. The road then would he extended to Tacoina and then to Portland and eventually to San Francisco. The Canadian Pacilic wants a slice of the Sound country business and can't get it without coming to Tacoina. Whether it gains control of the Lake Shore or not it w ill get into the cities to the south in some way. The Ledger might, with safety, have added and generally the C. I'. K. succeeds in any ot its pet scheme's, lioston to Sail Francisco now appears to be its ruling passion. BUILDING IN THE EAST.
