Now York, Dec. 5. A dispatch to
the Herald from Paris, says:
M. Claganan, president of tho Senate-
Committee, which has to report
on tho various bills providing a general
amnesty for nil offenses connected with
tho Dreyfus case, has received the fol
lowing letter from Captain Dreyfus,
dated Carpentrns, December 2:
"On thorvcry day that liberty was
given mo through a governmental
measure which I did not solicit 1 wrote
tho following declaration:
'"Tho government of the republic
gives mo liberty. It Is nothing to mo
without honor. From today and hence
forth I Intertd to follow up tho repara
tion of the terrible judicial error of
which I am still a victim. I want the
whole of lianco to know by a definite
judgment that I am Innocent. My soul
will never po at rest until Micro Is no
longer u Frenchman who Imputes to
mo mo crimo mat anoiner commiiicu.
" 'It Is not for me to Intervene In
tho political dissensions nrouscd by
tho amnesty question, but It tho Judg
ment which line bwn unjustly passed
upon me has deprived mo of my rights
as a citizen I still keep my full rights
as a man. I only ask one thing from
tho authorities that Is that they will
not tako away any man's right which
Is conferred upon mo by law of tho fol
lowing up of tho revision of my case.
" 'I have neither hatred nor rancor
in my heart, but for my children as
for myself I deslro tho proclamation
of my lnnocenco In tho name, of the
republic, In the name of France.
" 'I have a right to tho truth, to Jus
tice I ask them that I bo left every
means of legally establishing that 1
am Innocent of tho crime committed
by another, for which I havo been
twice unjustly condemned.

May Not Report (op Yearn.
Washington, Dec. 2. A member of
Congress who enjoys confidential re
lations with soma members of the
Nicaragua Commission Is authority for
the statement that It Is not probable
that tho Commlslson will make a ro
port for three, perhaps for four years.
This confirms the opinion of tho Cabi
net officer, quoted recently, and makes
moro discouraging than first supposed
tho outlook for tho waterway. The
Congressman referred to above says
he has been Informed by a member of
tho Commission that plans havo been
mapped out which will requlro near-
.y, it not quito, four years for their ful
filment; that tho Commission expects
to examine not only tho Nicaragua and
Panama routes, but all other possible
routes across tho Isthmus, and that tho
whole appropriation of $1,000,000 al
lowed by the last Congress for this fur
ther investigation will bo exhausted
before the report Is made. Friends of
tho canal will tako matters In their
own hands during tho coming session
and seek to provide for building the
waterway without waiting for tho re
port of tho Commission.

Qa., to Hampton Roads, where sho will

'Telephone 740. 1 1 : Fort St.
London, Dec. 4. The later details
received from Moddcr river show that
wen the desperate courago the attack
ing forco displayed all dny long (No
vember 28th,) failed to drive tho Doerit
from their strong entrenchments and
night felt on an undecided battle. Hut
during tho courso of the night General
Cronjo, commanding tho Doers, who
aro said to havo numbered 11,000
men decided that tho strugglo was
hopeless, for the Dritlsh found the
town and surrounding positions cvac
uatod when daylight broke, and the
wnolo British army crossscd tho river
and encamped on the Boor position.
Tho experts hero aro unanimous In
expressing the opinion that Klmbcr-
Iey s needs must bo very pressing to
induce General Mcthuen to oxposo '
tho wholo of his command to tho Doer
marksmen, snugly entrenched in a
semi-circular position. So deadly was
tho tiro zono that tho Scots Guards
woro compclllcd to lcavo their Maxim
guns behind when the ilrltlsh soldiers
wero forced to seek less exposed
ground. It was only after dusk that
a portion of tho British troops suc
ceeded In crossing tho river by a mill
dam on the extreme left. When night
fell the Boer artillery flro was Btlll
as vigorous as In tho morning, but
tho Boers' retirement In tho night
saved tho position for tho British. The
exhausted condition of tho British
troops precluded tho possibility of th
pursuit of tho enemy.
Now York, Dec. 2. Tho World to
morrow will publish tho following in
terview wiui senator siark Hanna:
"If anybody thlnkB I am out of ac
tlvo politics, let him wait until th
campaign opens. Now, do you think a
man wno has gone so far In this thing,
called politics and worked for tho par
ty will crawl out beforo entering the
campaign? About tho chairmanship:
I am simply chairman, and not a mem
ber of the National Commlttea. Mr
(term will not cxplro until after the
caning o: tho National Convention In
1900, when I havo to bo there, and, as
chairman, mako my report to tho con-'
ventlon. Tho National Coramltteo -will
bo selected by tho delegates from the
various States and thoy will then
elect a chairman. I won't withdraw
from tho chairmanship of tho National
Republican Committee beforo my term
expires. You can put that down as
Plan fop New Committees.
Washington. Dec. 4. Senator LoOk
has prepared for introduction at the
Republican Senate caucus tomorrow a
resolution providing for tho creation
of three new committees, tho most Im
portant to bo known as tho Committer
on Pacific Islands, to which will bo
refcrrerd all tho legislation affecting
Hawaii, Guam, Samoa and tho Philip
pine archipelago. Tho second com
mltteo will handle legislation affect
ing Porto nico and the third will deal
with matters rolatlng to Cuba.
Just how this resolution will be re
ceived by members of tho Committee
on Foreign Relations remains to bt
seen. It Is significant, however, that
Lodge is a member of this committee.
Mcthuen's llenvy Losses.
London, Dec. C Thoro is a feel I ne
of disappointment and n continuing
anxiety respecting Gi-noral Lord Mcth
uen. Tho Times says editorially:
"Tho battle, of Moddcr river afford
splendid proof of tho unsurpassed
qualities of the British soldier, but
while victories won solely by tho exer
cise of theso qualities-are Indood mag
nificent, they ore not war. They nil
us with pride, but with prldo not un
mixed with regret at the persistent er
verslty of circumstances which, apir-
euuy, yruvenia us ouuuntng eqOBt r
