A Vienna corres pondent of the Times says the world will have to resign itself to remain for a short time longer in its present state of uncer tainty as the Russian manifesto is not likely to be issaed before the Czar's return From Kischenefi for which April 29th is named as the probable date. The same correspondent repeats the report that Russia's circular note has been dispatched by special couriers. He adds, however, this may be. The note has not been received here nor has any intention been given that it is rn its way. The conclusion can safely be drawn from all this that there is to be a ' respite of about a week. Russia's reasons for this delay seem rather complex, the chief rea son, apparently, is that her preparations are not quite complete. T m 1 mi m.

The results achieved by them are more complete than could have been anticipated The general feeling, even among intelligent Republi cans, is that these results will be of im mense advantage to the state. The com- mission haye been more than ordinarily circumspect and have devoted themselves in a most laborious manner to their work. In the innumerable interviews with dele gations and committees and individuals of both parties, they have been courteous and patient. It is understood that an ovation was tendered them by the people or this city, but this was declined with thanks. A committee from the Packard legis lature waited upon the commission to-day and requested their friendly offices in se curing from the Nicholls government some compensation tor the policemen and em ployes who have remained faithful to Packard. The commission assured them that they would endeavor to meet their wishes and immediately requested an in terview with Gov. Nicholls, Lieutenant- urn. i uovernor vvutz, epeaser ousn, ana a number cf prominent members of the Nicholls legisiature, to whom they made known the request of the Republican com mittee. The subject was favorably con sidered, and Gov. Nicholls with the ad vice and consent of his associates promptly offered to devote the governor's contingent fund to this purpesa. This fund amounts to $30,000 or 40,000 and was appropriated to aid mcnoiis in estaonsning his cov ernment.
