IiOXiMijt, Feb. 544.—Further details of the outrage in the polit krai prison at Kara, Si berm have reached the Russian exile* in Ixnid*>fi from friends who ar* located a short dwtu ie e I KHI! the w-ene of tho horrors They are brief, but (vmclunive, confirming fully a report of the affair received here from an official iii Ht Petersburg who hi in aympathy with th*-» a use «if Hie people. Ai «-ordiiig to the*** detail* it appear* that Ute trouble at Hie Kara prison originated in a “hunger s’Hke" in August a hen the women political |in***mer* tried kl starve thenuMdvaa U> 'ienth k< e-cape the brutalities of their jailer- All the women imprisoned there ab -taile d fr**m fond for fourteen days. The Jai lei* did not believe that they would be mille to keep up the struggle At first they jeered at the women, then tempted them with f***i and tlii’it,finding thi*of noavail threatened t hem When several of the women were at the polit of death from their voluntary abstinence from food the prison official* resorted to artificial mean* to compel them to take Houri bluetit. The methods adopted, bowet* r, w* re violent and licentious and the women were i-ompelled to abandon their •ti ike Alioiiiinahle outrages followed and were of deily and hourly occurrence. MR*’ MIUIDA'M TREATMENT. Thi- state of affair* led Mine. Kigtda, wh*»e death by flogging has already linen announced, k> ask for an interview with the dir**‘1or of the prison in twipe of securing an amelioration of the <*ondition of the prisoners Tins request was granted, lait a lien she was taken I* fore him she found him allusive It is said that in ber exasperat mn at his abuse site called him a villain and slapped his fat* It is n*fi positively kn<>wn, how*ever, what took place during the interview, hut whatever did hafipen Mine Nigida did not return to her companion* Hbe was taken from the director'* office and conveyed to Ha* prison in which common offenders are confined.

Hmirn-itaky ami Maria Kolujny. The last two Im lie* were frtmi Oiieiwa. BA KOX K< I RF KS ORDER. Two months elapsed after tiiese events before Gen. Baron Korff, governor general of the province of the Amour instructed the lim kir* of prisons that the secret edict of March, I XRM which ordered that political iris**oei-* should be treated by prison officials in pre*-i^ly the san*' manner a* criminals condemned for common law offem-es, would be enforced ami ordered the directors to notify the political prisoners of both sexes that they would ta* liable to corporal pun-bh ii lent if ti ley v ic la tell certain of the imaot) regulations. The nude prisoners, foreseeing iinmeilinte flanger, hekl a consultation, and sent to the director of the prison a petition that he would telegraph to the minister of the interior at 8t. Petersburg, requesting him to suspend the albication of the edict. The director refused to pay any attention to their petition and thereupon the men warned him that the first flogging of a political prisoner would be the signal for the others to ©ouimitt suicide together. TUE FLOGGING AND 8CICIDE. Three days afterward Lieut Gen. Baron Korff -cut a special order directing that Mine. Kigida lie punished according to the fulltwt extent, lime. Kigida was stripped and received lfifi lashes. She was carried off bleeding and in an unconscious condition, and her death ensued from a rupture of the heart. Her three t swipe nit ms committed suicide within an hour of the time of hearing of Higida's death. The corpses of the four women wen* buried et the Kame time in the court yard of the conmifw offender*’ prison. THIRTY MEN TAKE DOIRON. For week* a ix>rdon of vigilance was so closely maintained around the prison that nothing wa* known of what wa lotpjletting within. Since the secret channel of informa-ti*m ha* I*-en reopened it ha* been learned that the men <wrried out their threat of suicide. They met together, and thirty of them shared what poison they could obtain aud then went to their cell* to die. The quantity of poison which had liven .smuggled into the prison was not sufficient to kill quickly, but in the course of the evening two of those who had shared it~~Bobokov and Kolujny—died. Ti.eir com uBion* and the deaf! silence which n igned in the other cells roused the attention of the guard* and they immediately summoned physician*, who administered emetics lo the Mirvivor* and endeavored by every number of specimens of uncivilized language* for philological purposes. The trip wa* to take more than two years, but the young men expected to arrive in New York in time for the world's fair in 1892. Lawler asserts that B J. Black, a German Jew of Farts and L*»don. is the author of all his troubles Th# young American arri veil with hi* yacht in Fart* on July 4, incidentally saving the life of s drowning man in the Heine bv diving un Jer a raft after him. Black had charge of tit* exhibition of the Neversink in Farts, and totally w ithout warrant be seised the yacht in lawlor s absence and sent ber to Cherbourg Jaw lor at once went to Russell T. Hoadiey of the Norton company aud got a bill of sale of the yacht and followed after it Blac k hired a French crew and sent ber to Portsmouth law lor reached that port just ss the Neversink was about to sail, put out in t boat aud boarded her. The crew attacked her with club* aud he shot one man in the leg. making only a slight wound and got |ioe w**ion of the yacht. This wa* more than British law could stand. and. in sfiite of public sentiment being with the American, he was sentenced to two month*’ imprisonment, which be has just served. lawlor ha* gone to New York to secure a title to the Neversink. w hich has been lying in Portsmouth harbor ever since, and will then prmved tm a tour around the world with Murphy, who has been awaiting his friend's release in London and Paris. wa* caused by the imprudent* of the workmen VICTIM* OF TH* “SWEATING KYHTEM”. The tailors of the East End of London who are the wurst victims cif the “sweating ’ system are generally cast down because of the failure of the parliamentary committee cm sweating to improve their condition The unfortunate tailors are now plannihg a gen eral strike iii the de*] ie rate hope that their wretched condition may awake sum* sym-f is thy and aid.

THE FRENCH PRETENDER I-a L.u< here went over to take a look at the trial cd the Due LFOrleans, and his views as to lite ]ierwitiality of the pretender differ from tin we expressed in the monarchial newspapers. He says: As a pretender [ prefer Boulanger to the young duke. Boulanger Is a bon diable and more or l.-x* manly, ] ie r ha pa less rather than more.

He is tall, of fresh complexion, has neat features, and could not fail a* an ensign trooping colors to steal away the hearts of nursery maid* and romantic young ladies, if they were not physiognomists enough to see that the eyes are harsh, unpleasant and dull, and that altin High he Int.-, lust the (Kidding contour which made him an ugly liny, the domination of stomach over mind is still shown in hi* cheeks. His light brown hair, of dull shade, is I airted, masher-like, in the middle and is slightly curled As to dress, it wa* irreproachable and carefully careless. I could trs(*e a resemblance in the cut of hi* features to the late Duke of Orleans, but the countenance wa* not his and I** tray cd a mind on a very small (Attern, a good deal of vanity and a temper more irascible than ninny. The eyes, to which I venture to recur, are small, triangular and wanting in fine exprecnkm and too close set giving a mean character to the face.” Of the Duke * near friend, De Luynm, La-bouchere says: This nobleman is saved by a clear, fair skin and a good-natured laugh from tieing the exact image of our Darwinian forefathers. I never saw a clearer case of reversion to a far-back ancestral tyjie. This duke’* mouth reaches from ear to car, and hi* loose lips refuse on any account to cover up the nether teeth and gums. His forehead slopes back from hi* I*row at an angle of thirty-five degree*. Republican* and Helm to* have no reason to fear the ducal party. The Duke of Doudeauville, though now fairly well stricken in year* and corpulent, continues to dress as a masher, and wears his grizzly hair parted in the middle, while marks of curling irons on the top part court attention." Queen Victoria, having recovered from her rheumatic trouble, has arranged to hold two !rawing room* in London next month. The first will take place cai the 5th, and will practically inaugurate the London season, which promise* to be unusually brilliant. STEPNIAK ON THE RI SSIAX OUTRAGES. Ivan Ktepniak last evening at a literary reception where he was the lion of the occasion, said that the adi.ption of the Russian extradition treaty by the United State* would lead to an immediate augmentation of the horrors now existing in the Siberian prison*. Of Kennau’-, Russian article* Kfceje niak spoke in the highest terms. He said: “Of course much information published in my works necewHarily comes at second hand aud though I have the fullest confidence in my informant I ha /e sometime* been almost unable to believe that the terrible stories they tokl were true, even with the knowledge I possess of the horror* (rf Russian tyranny You may imagine my feelings ii (ion finding myself so entirely corroborated by this bol and unprejudiced observer who ha* himself been a w itness of most of that which he writes."

The tables were covered entirely with cut ro*e-, Hlie* and hyacinths, in which gold and silver dishes were embowered. Another reception room wa* magnificently decorated in the Arab style, and the attendant* were negro***, whose costumes giitteied with jewels.

The finding<»f the body lying across the bed in hts room at the hotel where he was Maying, with blood issuing from nose and mouth b»gcther, with an empty phial supposed to have contained morphine, led to the belief that it was a case of suicide. This suspicion was increased when some old letters and a prayer liook were found, the former addressed t<j Iii* mother here and the latter I leafing the name of a young lady who the qns’i.il intimat'd was iq some way connected with the supfMised suicide On invest i gat ion here it was discovered that the young lady referred to was a wellknown and respected resident of Niagara Falls and a nit*** of Browne, but who last saw him some mouths ago when the prayer hook referred to, bearing ber name, was presented to him by her. About six week* ago Browne while working in Rome, N. Y., was suddenly taken ill with a severe attack of the grippe.
