there Is a great deal of suffering amont;

St. Pktkksbuku, Nov. 30. The popu
iarity of the czar increases daily*. Noth
ing has done mi much to popularize
him as his unaffected ways and the fact
that he is disposing with the military
police body-guards of the palace. Ilis
order withdrawing’ the troops from
the line of route upon his wedding
day has produced a good effect.
The crowds wore unable to believe
that they* would be allowed to stand
and witness the procession without
the invariable hedge of soldiers and
when they saw this was a fact the pop-
ulace were frantic with delight and ex-
pressed their satisfaction in a thousand
ways. There is no doubt that a marked
change has taken place everywhere in
St. Petersburg life in consequence oi
the czar’s admirable policy.

with the recommendation that the law
providing for the same may he so
amended as to compel the owners of
the meat inspected to pay the cost of

tion widens the market, thus en-
hancing the price of this property,
they, as tho direct pecuniary bene-
ficiaries, should agree to pay for it.
The inspection of animals received
in the United States has been contin-

that having demonstrated there is no
danger of introducing contagious dis-
eases, the result would he the revoca-
