THE horrible murder mystery at San Francisco attracts tho attention of the whole country.- 'The punishment of the slayer of the two young women whose mutilated bodies were found in a church should be swift and sure. There appears to be some doubt, however, as to whether the police have the murderer In Durant. While the guilty man should bo punished, equal care should be taken that an innocent man is not charged with so terrible a crime. DR. BUCHANAN, the New York wife murderer, has been given a new lea§e of life. It is but a thort leaee. however, the reprieve granted by Gove •• nor Morton being tor but one week Many men have been closer to execu tlon than Dr. Buchanan and yet hav been saved. The reprieve gives rls' to a new Issue in the case, It beln, argued that Buchanan can not b legally executed next week Inasmuo: as the time for his execution was fixe, for some day this week. One ground for hope that Nicholas II. will turn out to be a reformer is that, judging from Russian history of the last one hundred years, it iu now the turn of a liberal czar, says the Is'ew York Times. Reactionary and liberal rulers have alternated in Russia. The mad despot, Paul, was succeeded by the enlightened and sentimental Alexander I., who in his turn gave place to the reactionary autocrat, Nicholas. Nicholas was then succeeded hy the emancipator, Alexander II., and his son, who lately expired at Livadia, and whose reign was marked by the persecution of the Jews and Stundists, by a determined resistance to reform and by the re-assertion of the principle of autocracy. The pendulum should nowswing in the other direction. Tho personal character of no other living man is a matter of such interest and importance to the world as that of the youthful Nicholas II. The world is therefore grateful for any information regarding him. Charles Lowe, in his life of Alexander III.,, has a chapter upon his successor, which gives what is known of tho young man. In'physique he is, of course, a marked contrast to his gigantic father. He is short, slight and frail, and has never shown any of the exuherant vitality of youth. His eyes are fine, but he has a nervous twitch in them, in which ho resembles Paul I., who was also short. Re has hecn very carefully educated, and, unlike his father, with a special view to the -requirements of the place he now holds. It is said also that his education has not been such as to encourage prejudices. Although it is true that one of his preceptors was Katkoft', the famous Moscow editor and Pan- Slavist leader, his education has been mainly under the charge of Gen.-DanLl- ovitch, who has discharged his duty conscientiously. Even when the anti- German feeling was at its height in Russia he was not taught to hate the Germans. I3is scientific instruction was excellent. His father's wish was that he should give more attention to modern sciences than to the classics. Strange to say ho appears to know no Greek or Latin at all, but is wall grounded in the literature of his own country and of Germany, France and England. He knows the necessary mathematics, and has a very thorough knowledge of geography. Tho princo was well instructed in constitutional law, finance and history, although a good deal of Muscovite history and much that pertains to the rise of his own family has been kept back from him. It is said by Russians who know him well that he is in all respects the son of his amiablo mother. Like her, he is extremely fond of music and dancing, has a lively disposition and is easily amused. One of his jokes as a youth was that, if he over had to join the kings in exile, he should be in request for his musical talents and tenor voice. He does not care for sculpture or painting. To a French author who recently visited Russia he showed himself a great reader of French novels, speaking of Daudet as "exquisite," but remarking that Zola "overdid description."

GLiN BRCS., Bochesier, TEE extravagance of the last session of the fifty-third congress ia shown by the^annual report prepared by the clerkg of the Senate and House appro priatlon committees giving the exac appropriations aod the new cfficei created. The statement made publii yesterday shows the grand total o appropriations made during the las session of congress lo amount to 1497,008.520. Che number of new offices sped. flcaUy created Is 1,778, at an annual cost of $1,813,324, and the number omitted Is 409, at an / annual cost of $497,948, making r. net increase of 1.364 in number and $815,876 in amount. It is true that a large number of the new officers were appointed to col lect the income tax, but this did not require all of the increase. This report also shows a net in. crease in specific amounts appro prlated for new offices, where the number of such offices and the amount of salary to individuals are not speci- ed, of $805,700. The number of salaries specifically increased ia 119, at an annual cost of $89,506. and the number ol salaries specifically reduced i» sixty-nice at an annual cost of $18.328, making & net increase of fifty In number and of $21,177 in amount, making * total net Increase on account of salaries of officers, new and old, of $1.642.253. , taste is for shooting, riding and rowing, all of which ho is said to do very well. With an impressionable character, cuch as tho czar seems to have, the qualities of his wife heeome a matter of special importance. It was the boast of the late czar that he never told anything to xvomcn nor asked advico of them. But Nicholas is probably not that kind of a man, and there is cvcry rcason to hope that the influence of his wife will be beneficent. Princess Alix is tho daughter of Princess Alice, the most belovod of the daughters of tho queen of England. That she refused to comply with the requirement which compels converts to the orthodox creed in Kussifl. to abjure and curso the faith of their fathers is an evidence that she has strength of will and principle.. Little is known of what the political opinions of the prince are or of what are the qualities of mind and will which ho will bring to their support. The St. Petersburg dispatch to the effect that an imperial edict had been issued during the past week abolishing the flogging of criminals apparently refers to the use of the plet or pleti, and not to the knout, as was first supposed. Punishment with the knout or more correctly the knut, i was abolished by Emperor Nidio- j las I. more than forty years ago. I The lash of the knout was composed of broad leather thongs, prepared to a metallic hardness, and often intertwined with wire. A sentence of from one hundred to one hundred and twen- , ty blows was considered equivalent to \ death. TVhcn the-knout was done atvay witb tho plet, a simple lash, was substi- I tuted for it. This was considered a i much milder form of punishment, but prison officials found ways of increasing its efficacy, and George Kennan, in his recent book on Siberia, says .hat he was informed by Russian officers, that .death, .rnurht be caused by a Mam Severe at Present Than for Tlmo. Nor is it less true that in smiling, gaudy Paris the distress, though not so visible as it sometimes is in London, is more widespread, more severe and more cruel, says a Paris correspondent of the London Standard. The numher of persons who, having known better days, seek refugo in murder and suicide is far frreater in Paris than it is with us. In England there is always more or less of the restraining power of religious influence. But with the prevailing doctrine of ni Dicu ni maitre, the. only alternative left seems 1 'to^be blankdespair, or joining in tho war 'against society. The poor relief in France is administered by the state, and is conducted in a manner very satisfactory to tho army of functionaries who live upon the funds which should he approriated to the relief of the destitute. The English poor law system is not perfect, but the worst excesses of Bumbledom fall very far short of the maladministration of tho pashas set'up hero to administer state relief to the poor. There were last autumn twelve cases "of appallin;j suicides. One -was especially sad—the father out of employ; a mother and six young children; the father out from morning till night, eager to find a job; returns, home one night; finds the door locked; it is broken open, a pan of charcoal is burnt out, and the mother and five children are lying i stone dead on the floor! Of course, this case led to some sort of inquiry; and it was ascertained that the assistance publique was very discriminating in its administration of relief. It reserves its favors for Ihose pauper families who decline to have their children bap tized. The assistance publique has an endowment of one million six hundrec thousand pounds a year. Uuder these circumstances it is not to bo wondered at that anarchist anc socialist doctrines should spread. Recent documents show that the army and tho staff of the railways are honeycombed with anarchism. When .the next outbreak occurs what will happen? The government of the' day seems neither to know or care. "Apres nous le deluge" is its motto. But there are others who have much to iose, and they view the present with dissatisfation and the future witli^ dismay. One of the leading men in Trance told the .present writer but a few days since: "How is it people in England do not realize our condition? Wo are on tho eve of a terrible socialistic outbreak; and we do not know that the troops and railway servants will not join the insurgents." This anticipation is, perhaps, premature, but a fresh convulsion de Paris may be nearer at hand than it was in December, 1S-J7, or in June, IS70. AMERICAN CAMELS INCREASING And TfaU Desplto the 1'nct That They- Arc Butchered and So)il as Beef. M. F. Campbell, who has been for some time at the famous Gunsight mine, near the line of southern Arizona, sals.the camels of the desert arejn- Highest of all in Leavening Pow«>-Latest U. S. Govt Report ABSOLUTELY PURE creasing very rapidly ana now mimoer between three and four hundred, according' to the San Francisco Examiner. This is surprising, he says, considering tho large number that have been killed and palmed off for beef in the last few- years, and the inroads made upon tho bands by passing 1 showmen. Mr. Campbell gave some interesting details of these tawny denizens of the waste places, introduced so many years ago by Ben Butterworth and now grown wild. "These hulking animals," he said, "roam mainly between the Gila and Colorado rivers, in a stretch of the Low Eagle Tail mountains and the desert adjoining. There is very fine bunch- grass in that region, and the camels keep in good condition. I have several times seen as many as eight or ten in a band and most of them are very large. ""Different persons have been there from time to time catching them for the circuses. That is the source of supply now for all the shows. The hunters go out in bands of half a dozen on mules, as horses would be of no ac s»3unt. The camels, cumbersome as they look, run very fast, and only mules are enduring enough in that tough country to wear them out. The hunters stretch out, surround a band, and out of ten or a dozen manage to cut out and stay by a couple, •wearing' them out and catching them finally with lassos. The camels are very wild at first, but speedily tame down, and the showmen can do anything they please with them, "I was for nearly two years there mining, and myself and men were furnished with camel meat right alongand thought it very good. We paid twenty- five cents a pound for a good deal of it, and we thought it as good beef as we had usually eaten. The old prospectors, who had turned to peddling meat, never said a word to us, but took their pay regularly to go away and come back again. At the last we found out it was nothing but the camel's meat which they were furnishing us. Then we began to draw the line. "If the meat sellers and circus people would let the camels alone ^or awhile they would increase much faster. Tho animals are interesting to see on the desert and do no harm." lan nationality. llis housekeeper was the only one to- receive a direct legacy, and she was- honored with tlirec hundred dollars and the furniture of his establishment. The most remarkable provision of, the will was that the empty hacks, should follow his hearse in tho procession, as a symbol of the empty sorrow of the unfortunate relatives. A QUEER FUNERAL. Thirty Empty Hack* I ol In wed the Remain* to the Grave. Providence had a sensation in the shape of an Italian funeral in which the hearse was followed by thirty empty hacks, says the Providence (R. I.) Journal. This innovation was unprecedented even in "Little Italy," whence the citizens of Providence have come to expect many strange things. The funeral was that of Gabriel Fcr- ri, who died after a three rconths' lingering illness at the Rhode Island hospital. When it was rumored among tho Italians that the sickness with which the man was stricken would be his' last, no one doubted that his three nephews, who are his only relatives ia this country, would be the fortunate heirs of his. estates. In fact, even two months ago ilr. Fcrri made his last will and testament, iu which he did bequeath all his earthly possessions to.| these same expectant young men. At the KuMlnn Conrt- An American lady in Russia gives tho following charming account of the first' Russian court ball of the season: "Thoi ball opened with a polonaise, in which! the whole Imperial family took part, besides all the ambassadors and other great personages. Most Russian dances; arc very lively, the mazurka especially so, and very graceful when well performed. The cotillon is always an important feature, and there arc also other somewhat similar dances, but bearing other names. The waltz is as fashionable in Russia as anywhere else. A gentleman who is known to danco well is selected as dirigcur or leader for the evening and superintends every dance that takes place. At the first court ball the dancing is usually rather quiet and stiff, the etiquette being: strictly maintained, so to speak, instead of the free nnd easiness of the smaller and more select dances, which are attended by a few hundreds of the aristocracy and official classes of the- highest order, all of whom are on intimate terms with one another." AlmoBt a Man'* KT^nlnsr Suit. A novelty at the last white houtw .«)- ception was a lad} 7 who was attired almost like a man. She had observed the horse show to tho grandest ball of elite. She decided to approach it as. nearly in her owu costume as the law would permit. She had her tailor make her a dress coat and waistcoat exactly like a man's. She hadashirtmadeexact- lylike men's shirts. She had link cuffs, made like a man's. In the cuffs and in. the shirt she wore the daintiest little pearl buttons of the newest design. Her hair was short and parted in the middle—for all the world like that of "Bertie" or Adolplvus. She wore a narrow, close-fitting, black skirt, and by this alone her sex was indicated. Of course she attracted more attention than even Mrs. Cleveland; but she met curiosity with indifference- / CrxdJea rnr,lnd!:tri ;tllj:ps.

These sacks are In- .dian cradles. Sometimes, if the camp is going on a. long journey in search of garae or for water, or to escape a war party, two of these sacks are fastened together by stout straps and" swung- over the back of a pony, one dangling- on each side, like the baskets on a pack mule.
