A   tragic  story of the  love affair of  a you-n-g        German     nobleman  and a lady  circus  rider comes    from  Buda Pesth, says The Express. Mdlc  Feoclora, as she is known, though hei  real, name   is  Fraiilein  Weissenbach,  while performing in'Dusseldorf,      So  ch-arme-Cl  a young   Baion  von Leydcn,  an   ollicer   m   the German   army,   by  her   beauty   and   hoiscitianship,    that  when the  circus   left   Dusseldorf,  the  baron "obtained  leave of absence     in  order    to      accompany her to  Buda  Pesth,   and   there   he  promised       to  marry her.   He returned to'his home  to make thc noccsFat'y  arrangements  but met     with the strongest opposition,   both   from   his  family,       who  wished him   to marry  a daughter  of  a deceased   millionaire,  and  from  the  military authorities, who even  refused  to allow   him   to resign  his    commission.      Baron  von Leydcn       then  appealed  to   the Emperor  direct,  but  only  to be informed  that  if he  mar-  tied Mdlle.   Fcodora he   would       be  cashiered  and degraded.   In  his   despair,   the ' young   man   resolved      to  take his  life.     A day  or  two     ago  Mdlle.   Fcodora received  from  him a  letter   to *say  that  he   had resolved  to  shoot  himself   when   out   hunting,  and   the same day  she read   in       the  newspapers   that  the Baron   had  accident-ally   shot  himself  with       his  own gun.  On Monday Mdlle. Feodoi'a  threw  herself in front of an  electric  tram   ��������� at Buda Pesth,  but. the presence of mind, of the driver frustrated  her attempt   to commit,  suicide   and  she was picked up   only slightly  injured.    Mdlle.  Fcodora is  the daughter of a German officer of high rank,  but  eloped  with a student  to  Paris  . when   only   17  years  old.    On      her  I return to Germany her family would  have  nothing  to' do   with  her  she was forced to  join a circus  order* to piake a living,  superiority of British  justice  to  the  American article, and of the expeditious  and  workmanlike  character   of  British     legal procedure in  criminal  cases.     The Collins case at Victoria  has   dissohed  an   illusion-     which  made iiss believe for many years that  criminals in the British Empiro'were  not "the  painper-jd  darlings  that they  are iu  the_ United  States.  Wlicnevci*'  a criminal, whom everybody knew to  be guilty,  has  succeeded  in  keeping  his case  in the courts for years,' appealing  from the Uials court-to the  appellate and  from the State courts  to  the federal,  wc have been     told  that they did these things better in  thc  British  Empire, and  we believed  \ the   yarn,   although  the  comparison--  were odious to our patriotic feelings  In   the Biitish  Empire,  vc  were' in-,  formed,   the     majesty   of  the bench  was  awful, in the correct sense of  that  abused adjective.    Judges' wore  ���������vigs  and gowns  in  the  British  Em-  t-'ire,  and  even' the barristers   made  up I'oi   their parts-in hoi-schair - ami  silk or stuff.   Theie was no trifling  villi   the  courts  in the  British  Empire-   Criminals   wore criminals,  whe-  ��������� her  Ih. ir  social degree he high     or  ow.    In fact,  the .supreme perfection  01 the    administration     ot" the penal  ��������� aws   in   t-he  British   Empire  was  a  fiction with   which   the majority of  the   King's  good  subjects,  at   home  and    abroad,      regaled    their  loyal  minds.  "But the   nimble Geo- D.  Collins  lias  made  monl eys of British judgss  and    lawyers,  and has  pro,ed   that  .here  is just as much power in tcch-  [jiicalit'ics  in British Columbia,   under  the  British flag, as in California' under   tiie Stars  and  Stripes.- Indeed,  if the niling of  thc judge in Victoiia  be coricct,   which   required   the  district fciUoi'ney from .San Francisco to  produce all   his  ci idcnce,-in   thc.j^  tradition proceeding, as '.if it, had been  ihe trial,   the law   of British  Columbia  is far      more  favorable to  alien  criminals,   seeking refuge  in_      that  country, than is  the law of the United   States.  "We     had Collins pretty far     0:1  the way to  the penitentiary whrr.n he  took flight, but the Victoria authoii-  ties  seem to be unable to keep  hun  in jail,  and lie is  only  nominally in  custody:    The  latest despatches   say  that, it-'will  be weeks  before       his  most recent application  for a writ of  habeas  corpus  will  be heard.   Mean  whnle  he lives  at case a"(I at large;  and   it is not at alt certain that he  will    not     finally  be set at,  liberty'  completely   and  permitted   to  swear-  allegiance  to  the  King  and  practice  law  in the   British Columbia courts.  "The present play of Collins- is  to  continue  petitioning  the   divers judges for  writs of habeas corpus.    The  law   in  British Columbia,  as in Call'  fornia,  imposes a fin:: on a judge who  refuses  to issue a writ to any appli  cant.      A man     like Collins reduces  this   rule  to absurdity by  merely applying again   when   reiii-andcd on    the  first app! ealion, and keeping this fuj  iiKler.nitely.    The   British   Columbian  courts   arc   either  unwilling or   pow-  Icss  lo stop  him;  and they are,    foi  lhat reason,   ridiculous   Ix'fnic     'the  whole   world."
