CZAR SPEAKS FOR PEACE
Asks Europe to Dccraise Its War
Would Ttius Secure Continual Peace Humani
tarian Ylews Put
LotuloQ, Aug. 28. Tho tost of
of tho note to tho powers issued nt
St. Potorsburg is as follows: The
matatouunco of general peaco and
tho poBsiblo reduction of tho ex
cessivo armaments which weigh
. upon all nations, present them
solvos in oxistiog conditions to
tho whole world ns un ideal to--ward
which tho ondeavors of nil
governments should bo directed.
Tho humanitarian and magnani
mous ideas of his majesty, tho
Emporor, my august master, havo
beou won over to those viows in
the conviction that this lofty aim
is in conformity with tho most
osseutial interests and legitimate
viows of all tho powers; ami tho
Imperial Government thinks tho
present moment would bo vnry
favorable to soaking tho means to
International discussion iB tho
most effectual means of insuring
all peoples benefit a real,durablo
ponco, abovo all, putting an end to
tho progressive development of
tho present armamonts.
Iu the courso of tho last twonty
years the longing for general ap
peasoment has grown oxpecially
pronounced in tho consciences of
civilizod nations; and tho preser
vation of peace has beon put for
ward as an object of international
polioy. It is in its namo that
nreat states havo concluded among
themsolvos powerful alliances.
It is tho better to guarantoo
peaco that thoy havo devolopod in
proportions hitherto unprecedont
o'J their military forces an I Btill
continue to increaso thora, with
out shrinkage from any sacrifice.
Nevortholoss, all thoso efforts havo
not yet been ablo to bring about
tho beneficent result dosirod
The financial charges following
-the upward march, striko at the
Tory root of public prosperity.
Tho intellectual and physical
strongth of the nations' labor and
capital aro mostly diverted from
their natural application and aro
unproductivoly consumed. Hun
dreds of millions aro devoted to
acquiring terrible engines of des
truction, which, though today re
garded as tho last work of soionco,
aro destined tomorrow to loso all
their valuo in consequence of some
fresh discovery in the same fiold.
National culture, economic pro
gress and tho production of wealth
aro oithor paralyzed or cheoked iu
devolopmout. Moreover, iu pio
portion as tho armamout of
oach power increase, tli"
less and less they fulfill
tho objoct of tho govern
mont havo set bofore thomsolveH.
Tho economic crisis, duo in
great part to tho system of arm
aments, l'outrance, and the con
tinual dangor which lies in this
massing of war material, are
transforming tho armed ponce of
our days into a crushing burden
which the peoplo have moro and
more dillioulty in bearing.
It appears evident that if this
stato of things were to bo prolong
ed it would inevitably lead to tho
very cataclysm it is desired to
avert and tho horrors whoroof
mako ovory thinking being shud
der in advance
To put an end to thoso incossaut
armamonts and to seok tho means
of warding off tho calamities which
are threatening tho wholo world
suoh is tho supromo duty today
imposod upon all states.
Filled with this idea his majesty
has boon pleased to command mo
to propose to all tho governments
whoso representatives aro accred
ited to the impdrial .court, tho
assembling of a conference which
Bhall occupy itself with tlm gravo
problom. This conference will
bo, by tho help of God, tho happy
prosago for tho contury which iB
about to open. It would converge
into ono poworful focus tho efforts
of nil ntntnn ninnnrnlv flnnltinrr to

DREYFUS AFFAIR AGAIN
Col. Henry Admits Forgery and Then
This Forgery Played Important In Conviction
France Again Stirred Up With
New York, August 31. A Sun
cablo from Paris says: A day of
anguish to tho vast majority of
Fronchmon, ended today in indes
cribable omotion, caused by tho
nows that tho author of tho army's
latest disgraco had committed sui
cide in tho coll ho occupied in the
fort at Mont Valerian. Colonel
Henry, who was arrested yestor
dy on a chargo of, having forged
a lotter that had an important
boaring on tho Dreyfus case, was
found lying in a pool of blood,
having cut his throat with a razor
ho had taken to prison with him
in a bag containing clothing. His
confession of the forgery was im
mediately reported to Cavaiguac,
Ministor of "War.
It is a bare, torriblo fact, that
an officer, holding one of tho most
responsible and most dolicato po
sitions in thoFronch army, head of
the uopartmont concerned in riro
enring secret information, should
hayo stooped to forgery intbo pur
suit of an obscure, underhand
plan, that fills Frenchmen with
despair of whom to trust, whom to
beliovo among all officers concoru
ed in tho trial of Dreyfus. For Vho
moment, anti - Ureyfusites oud
Dreyfusites among tho Parisinn
public maintain their previous
contentions moro vohomontly than
u,u. mo luimur uru now curs
ing both Colonol HonrvandDrov-
xus, but in Government circles tho
forgory rovelations aro working
momentous quangos, JLliero is au
thority for staling that Oavaignafi
has decided to grant a revision of
iJroytus' sontonco. True, ho main
tains that Colonel Henry's forgery
does not affect tho proofs of Droy
fus' treason, but his speech in the
Chamber of Doputics, which was
rapturously applauded and pla
carded throughout Franco, iu
which ho proclaimed his posses
sion of proofs of treason, was
uasou on Henry's forgory.
