They then proceeded to the church where Emperor William, in behalf of himself and the Empress of Germany, deposited on the casket containing the remiins of the late Empress of Austria, a floral wreath which His Majesty had brought from (Jermany. The Emperor dined at Ihe Herman Embassy after the funeral and started for Berlin this evening. The aspect of this city to-day was more sombre than upon any day of the mourning. Hardly a house was without black drapery, and the entire populace seemed to have poured out into the streets. The streets lamps were all alight, shining dimly llirouglit coverings of crape. (Jreat torches threw glaring flames over the Royal Chapel in which the re mains of the late Empress have lain "n stale since yesterday morning. Th doors of the chapel were closed at noon, thus barring out thousands of people who were anxious to see the casket. At four o'clock the tolling of the bells announced the starting of the procession. The most imposing feature of the pro cession was several companies of the foot guards and a squadron of the horse guirds. followed by a detachment of yeomen all georgously uniformed. This preceded the cossal eight-horsed funeral car. On either side were four footmen and four pages with lighted tapers; but, the immediate escort of the car was composed ot six stalwart gentlemen of the archer gutrd. eight yeonn n, six Hungarian life guards and eight mounted life guards. Following the car were several bodies cavalry. A large number of canonicals, met the Augustines church and proceeded with it to the church of the Capuchins. The clergy there marched down the aisle be fore the coffin and united in intoning prayer which were also exquisitely chanted, during the service, by the court choir. During the last prayer, the coffin wis lifted from the catalfque and the clergy bearing torches, walked before it. Em peror Francis Joseph, attended by the highest officers of state, bearing wands, followed. This procession slowly pass ed from the sight of the congregation down a stone stairway to the vaults. After the Hst benediction had been pronounced in the vaults the mourners reascended and the High Chamberlain banded the key of the vault to the Capuchin, who is the guardian of the I mperial mauslem. of infantry priests in procession ,it and full the MB.

Ia.. who was asked by t lit' President to servo on the commis sion to investigate certain departments of the army in connection with the war. was at the White House to-day. In his interview the President assured Mr Howell that it wis his purpose to secure a commission who, without fear or fa vor, would probe to the bottom the charges made by newspapers and indi viduals involving the efficiency and in tegrity of officers of the army, and give to the country the facts. The Secretary ef War had tsked for an investigation and the President thought it due to all concerned that it be made at once by a commission in whose honesty of purpose and ability there could bo no question. Under these circumstances Mr. Howel assured the President that he gladly nccerft the appointment regarded it a duty which no should evade. The only purpose of Ihe President in securing, if possible, nine-tenths of Ihe commission, is to lighten the labor of the individual members. If, however, Ihe President is unable to secure the services o nine members he will proceed with seven. He expects the commission will be'comileled within the next few days. The gentlemen who already have accept ed, or who. it is confidently expected, will consent to serve are Col. Sexton, (Je-i. Dodge, Mr. Meuby, Mr. Howell, My. (iillman and Dr. Keene. As to the power of the commission to compel officers and others to testify a to facts within their knowledge. the President assured Mr. Howell that if the commission met whh any difficulty in that regard, which, hoAvever, he did not expect, ho, the President, would know the reason why. After a half hour's conference with the President to-day (ieneral Schofield announced that he would not serve as a member of the commission. PAID OFF BY THE NEOKO. The Poor Boys Wanted to go Home and Had to Swallow the Pill. Jacksonville, Fla.. Sept. 17. Tlit? Second Texas regiment was paid off to day by Major Lynch, the negro pay master. This is the regiment that re fused to receive the pay from Major Lynch on account of his color, and the matter was referred to Washington.

The sun pttsed victim of the Bridgeport, Conn, murder. Miss Marian Oraee Perkins ai med at her home this afternoon in per feet health to the great joy of the family and unbounded astonishment of the en tire community. Her father Mas not in town, for at the time of his da lighter's arrival, he Mas on his way back from Bridgeport. Conn., with the grewsofno remains which he had identified as those of J race, and for which the funeral ar rangements, incuhling the digging of the grave had already been completed. Miss Perkins came from Providence, II. I. and was accompanied by her lover Charles Bourne, and at lirst it was stated that the cpuple had been mar ried. This Mas afterward denied by young Bourne's uncle. Just across the street from the Perkins house is a little cemetery, and only this morning, in re sponse to the request of the uncle of Mrs. Perkins, a grave had been dug by the sexton in the family lot, and the new earth thrown up beside it could bo plainly seen from the house. Half an hour after Miss Perkins' arrival home a local undertake'!- M;Tgm drove up to the house, jind in it Mas the coffin which had been ordered by the family. Th : funeral arrangements had even gone so far that the family minister had been asked to conduct the services. WOIIKIXU ON THE CASE. Bridgeport. Conn., Sept. 17. The news that Miss Perkins had returned to her home in Middleboro Mas received Mith incredulity at lirst. so general Mas the belief that the identity of the body had been established. Superintendent of Police Birmingham, said to-night: "I was satisfied that the dead woman was not the original of the photograph exhibited by Mr. Perkins, and there were other discrepancies, a great many of them. I have been actively working on the cast1, but am obliged to say that thus far 1 have not been able to secure evidence that Mould warrant an arrest. I have evidence which I cannot divulge, that Mill play its part when the time comes." He v.duld not say anything about Dr. (iuilford. whose name has been used in connection with the case. In the opin ion of Superintendent Pirniingham the woman died or Mas murdered last Sun day. To-night he has sent out an offi cial description of the woman. It is presumed that the body v.ill bo ent back to this city without delay ami buried by the town authorities without, further delay. THE FIRST CATCHING SNAKES To Pass Away the Time Tin of "lV-st lo'." I Ioodoi) Camp Cuba Libre, Near Jacksonville, Fla. Sept. Pi. t S fecial Correspondent.) Under the caption of "Heady to do their Duty,"' the Jacksonville Times Union and Citizen, had a lengthy article about the First North Carolina regiment in a recent issue that should be read by every citizen of the State. The article speaks in the highest terms of the work being dene by the regiment, and shows that the Tar Heel troops are at the head of the Seventh Army corps in the May it is officered, in proficiency and in their health record. Stanley Faison. mail carrier for the regiment, is back in camp again after a visit to his home in Kaleigh. Chaplain A. A. Pruden is ill and has been unable to report for duty for sev eral days. He has moved to the city, so as to be able to be with Mrs. Pru den and to get better attention. Captain Crawford, of Company "K," is also on the sick list, but is not con fined, lie expects to leave for home in a few days, when1 ho will remain, hav ing resigned his commission as captain. The paymaster is expected to reach this regiment cither to-day or to-morrow, and the boys are all happy in anticipa tion of the joyous ocacsion. For differ ence reasons, one of hich is that the regiment M'as torn up while moving from Springfield to Long Branch, tic paymaster's visit M'as delayed and the boys are all short on spending cliauge. Maj. Smith, who is senior major of Ihe regiment, is now acting in the capa city of colonel. While Major Smith Mas away on leave of absence, Major Butzler was in command. "Post Thirteen' is now a thing of the past. The old idea that number thirteen is unlucky seems to have been verified in this regiment, as several have been court martialed for sleeping on duty. As a result thirteen was left out some time ago, and the numbers run tMelve, four teen, etc. Since the change there has been no complaint from that quarter of the camp. One of the Fourth Illinois regiment boys "saw a snake" a few days ago that came very near resulting fatally for him. He Mas on the old M'harf at the foot of Julia street, where he saw a rattler. In attempting to catch the snake he was bitten and for a while was in a serious condition. Several phy sicians attended him. and, In; Mas finally brought around all O. K. Company D can boast of having some thing that no other company in this regiment has, and but few in the Seventh Corps. It is a genuine up-to-date cap tain with a full set of side-Mhiskors, through M'hich the Mind can bloM' with case. Whether he M'ears an insigna of his ranks or not. he is always saluted by the boys and passed by the sentinels on duty without questioning the matter. OUTCRY AGAINST ANARCHISTS. POST OFFICE OKDE US.

An International Agreement May bo Beached That Will Meet Their Case. (.Copyright USDS, by Assoiated Press.) Berlin, September 17. The assassina tion of the Empress of Austria at Ge neva, Switzerland, on Saturday last, by an Italian anarchist, has led to a violent outcry in some of the reactionary organs for repressive measures against anar chists. Diplomatic circles will not be surprised if Russia and Austria set on foot a pro posals for international action against anarchists, in M'hich Germany will prob ably join; but, they consider it extremely doubtful Mhether (Jreat Britain, the United States and Switzerland Mill co operate. The Deutsche Zeitunp; suggests that all the European governments agree to deport confessed anarchists to a far away island and keep them there until they die.
