REVIEW OF DREYFUS CASE
What Harpers Weekly's London Cor
respondent Has to Say.
Belief la Guilt Or Innocence of Dreyfus Has
Passed Into Domain of Religion Some
Arnold White, Harpers Week
ly's London correspondent, writ
ing nodor dato'of July 1 gives the
following interesting review of
France and the Dreyfus case:
I have spent the past week in
Paris. studying the Dreyfus ques
tion. Thero is much more than
meets the oyo; ranch moro than
is published in the newspapers,
whoso violent calumnies recall
Hobort'a Fere Duohesno of 1792.
The French Frimo Minister is
publicly denounced as a robber,
the War Miuixtor branded as a
murderer, the Minister of Com
merce held up as a traitor. Drey
fus himself is but a oheval de
batailte one symptom of the rev
olutionary fevor which period!
cally inflames the blood of Fronoh-
Over three hundred disappoint
ed reporters of tbe Frunch and
English press waited at Brest for
tbe returned prisoner. When
Maroband landed at Toulon far
less pblio interest was displayed
in him than in tbe prisoner of
Devil's Island, whom ,M. Lobon
bound in chains. Dreyfus has
already upsot two ministers.
Tbe presont French ministry is
a committee of publio safety.
In the interests of oliimentary
civilization, that beau sabreur the
Marquis dn Galiffet Bits at the
council tablo, as Minister of War,

whose communistio friends he

Belief in tho guilt or innocence
of Dreyfus ha passed into the
domain of religion. Among the
Catholics, to question his treaoh
ery is regarded as tantamont to
infidelity or ntsobeuionos to the
Olmroh. On the other side, tho
Jews, the iutelleotuals, and the
Protestants acclaim DreyfuB as a
hero; almost as a Messiah. It is
a toBB-up whether Dreyfus is pois
oned iu his coll or beoomes Presi
dent of tho French Republic.
Neither acquittal at Bonnes nor a
fresh condemnation will allay the
fever that burns in the veins of
France. Thero is a namoless
sense of unroot in tbe land. The
traders yearn for a deliverer, they
caro not who. They openly lament
Lack of confidence haa emptied
Paris of its visitors by dispelling
tho tranquility .without which
ueilher trudera can fl mrish nor
woikmen rise. Meantime the
Marquis de Qalliffot and the Exhi
bition arethopriuoipal guarantees
of pence. The desire to make
money is stronger than tbe desiro
for a change among quiet souls
who bave'pornetning to lose; but
with the nrbnn citifies who have
nothing, exploited by unscrupu
lous touguesters, tho donire
for ohanuo is overwhelming.
Notwithstanding the strength

Franco especially in rural
France anything" may happen

Tbe iujufrtico and cruelty of
publio opiuion recnll the days of
the. Terror. A Ohristiau lady at
llennes, well-to-do and a Protest
ant, who inscribes in bor hall the
words of the Master, "Little
children, love one another," in
obodience to this command wrote
to Madame Dreyfus as a perfect
stranger, offoring her the use of
her house, since neither hotel nor
lodging dares to shelter the wife
of the returned prisoner. When
Madame Dreyfas accepted tho
hospitality of Madamo Godard,
tho torront of scurrilities and
falsehood of the anti-Dreyfusard
press surpassed itself.
It is like a whiff from
the infernal regions to see
large masses of educated French
men treat the brave act of a good
woman as national treacbory and
sordid villauy. For the nation
that claims to be in tbe van of the
world's progress , according to
Viotor Hugo, "Tho Christ of Na
tions" is thero any other cure
than another "whiff of grape
shot ? "
In August, 1815, two months
aftc-r tho battle of Waterloo, the
Duke of Wellington, writing to
Lord Oastlereach, expressed the
opinion "that the Frenob Revolu
tion and tbe Treaty of Paris had
left France in too great strength
for the rest of Europe, and if the
policy of, the united powers of
Europe wa to weaken France,
that they should dp so in reality,
but that if peace- and tranquility
for a few years was their object,
they should refrain from taking
those measures" which, in the
Duke's opiuion, "would alone en
sure permanent seourity for
peace." Tho Duke of Wellington's
prescience is shown in tho state of
Franoe today. Her leaders aro not
men to be safely intrusted with
power, while nothing but her im
potence against'the military prep
arations of Germany aud the nav
al strength of England provonts

MURRAY' ON DESERTERS
What He Says Abont Hawaiian Law,
CoDsnls and Shipmasters,
Criticises Mr. Smith's Views What the Law
Compels Captains to Da Various Cases
Cited -Seamen Engaged As Free Hen.
Editor Evening Bulletin:
A'lottor appoared in last night's
issue of your widely-circulating
paper, signed by a Mr. Smith,
re desertors. As one of tho cap
tains of the deep water vessels at
tacked, I must respectfully ap
peal for similar publioity to tbo
following criticism upon and
answers to his vague, ignorant,
and illogical assertion.
His wholesale condemnation ot
Hawaiian law, consuls, and ship
masters stvors of tho lately-landed
Irishman at New York. During
a close election Pat was asked
what sido of politics ho was for.
Knowing but littlo of tho parties
he sagely scratched bis poll, and
answered, "Sure and bogorra, I am
agin tho Government." It was no
matter what measures were at
stake, what party held the major
ity, Pat was in opposition. And
bo with this Mr. Smith.
Your roadera are informed that
his opinions aro not influoncod
by his exalted position as manager
of the Seamen's Club, nor does be
enlighten ua how they are formed
whether as a seamen or boarding
house runner. Mr. Smith should
know, the arrests are legally made;
tbo law, compells tho Captains to
take out warrants, undor penalties;
the lockiucr. up for desertion is a
question of fact not of trial. Your
correspondent could have ascer
tained the facts, bad he consulted
a lawyer prior to rushing into
print. But tho old adage is true,
in Honolulu at elsewhere. Fools

Ho asks vaguely; is this in accord

and justioj? It is in accordance
