SIBERIAN PRISON OUTRAGES.
London, Aiarch 13. The attention of
Mr. Sergisus Stephinak, the Russian
Liberal, was called to the fact that some
had expreed doubt as to the authencity
and trustworthiness of the recently pub
lished4 accounts of outrages to which
political prisoners in Siberia had been
subjected. Air. Stephinak said that the
main features of these accounts were
rully corroborated by such portions of the
official report compiled by the Russian
government has been given the public.
"It is almost impossible to exaggerate
the suffering of political prisoners in Si
beria," he said. He expressed the .convic
tion that the agitation in American on be
half of reforming the treatment of politi
cal prisoners in Siberia can not
fail to have its influence with the Russian
officials from the czar down. He feels
coufident that it will result in mitigating
the severity of treatment which is now
enforced against political exiles.

BERLIN, March 15. The international
labor conference assembled at 2 o'clock
this afternoon in the famous congress hall
of the chancellor's palace. The proceed
ings were of the simplest cnaracter and
were not attended by any ceremony. Alost
of the delegates went to tiie palace on foot.
An immense crowd outside of the palace
watched the arrivals in sUence. It was
noticed that the blinds of the hall were
kept lowered as significant of the chancel
lor's desire to keep the results of the
sittings private for the present.
Shortly before the time fixed for th con
ference to open the emperor visited Prince
Bismarck and had a long interview with
the chancellor. Baron Yon Berlepsch, the
Prussian miuister of commerce was sum
moned to the conference and received in
structions before going to the congress
hall. The opening address to the dele
gates had no distinctive characteristics.
The delegates proceeded to elect officers.
Baron Yon Berlepsch was chosen presi
dent by acclamation, and Herr Magdeburg,
Prussian under secretary of state for com
merce, was mace vice president. An ad
ministrative bureau was appointed-, con
sisting of Fnrrst, French counselor of le

ANIMAL N THE STAGE.
They Havej taken Part Iu Many Playa.
"Mr. Dnrliuc's Performing Lions.
The appearance of trained animals as act
ors in. theatrical productions is anything but
a novelty, yet somehow it generally proves
to be a "card." Dozens of dramas depend,
for some of tlieir most striking situations, on
OX THE SEESAW.
tho work of animals ranging in size from a
dog to an elephant. In "Shenandoah" a
horse dashes across the stage, supposed to b
bearing Sheridan on his ride from Winches
ter. This forms the climax of one of the
acts, and generally arouses unbounded en
thusiasm. In Neil Burgess' "County Fair,"
a horse race takes place on the stage. In
Den Thompson's "Old Homestead," realism
is added by the appearance of a yoke of
In "Around the World in Eighty Days" a
caravan of elephants marches ponderously
across the stage. Frank Frayno's pieces are
full of animals. J. K. Emmet hfcs several
times introduced dogs into his plays. In
"Kerry Gow" carrier pigeons bring news of
the race. Tears ago, in "The Laplander,''
a thrilling situation was created by having a
team of real reindeer, ostensibly running
away from a pack of howling wolves, dash
madly across the stage, dragging a sleigh.
Everybody is familiar with tho dogs which
add so much to Eliza's escape across tho ica
bound river, in "Uncle Tom's Cabin," aud
with the comicalities of the donkey in the
same piece. There was hardly an animal not
represented in the long procession which
passed before Adam and Eve in the "Drama
of Eden," recently produced in Paris.
When "Rienzi" was brought out at tha
Metropolitan opera' house in Now York a
horse appeared on the stage in peculiarly try
ing circumstances. There were fully 300 peo
ple on one side, all singing in a mighty chorus.
THE KJXG OF BEASTS IN HARNESS.
On the other side was stationed a mammoth
orchestra of brass instruments. Tho horse
made his appearance between them aud went
through his part, uuconfused by tho bustle
and uproar. In "A Run of Luck," six Ken
tucky thoroughbred,., all of undoubted pedi
gree, took part, first in a fox hunt aud later
in a running race. A paok of thirty fox
hounds appeared also in the fox hunt.
Theie are also many shows on the road
which are hardly of tho circus order, but
which consist entirely of trained animals.
Soino years ago a troupe of educated horses
was toured throughout America in a veritable
equino drama, and similar enterprises have
been carried out with dogs and monkeys as
nctors. A company of trained cats was not
long ago reported from Paris.
Rut by far tho mast remarkable exhibition
of animals is that afforded by Air. Darling (an
American) and his educated lions at the
Nouveau Cirque in Paris. These lions go
through a really remarkable performance,
sharing honors with a splendid and intelligent
