SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1898.
"THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 22. 1898.
It is announced from Washington
tha President McKinley has ar last
succeeded In securing nine gent lerne?
who are willing tojundertnke the oner?
ous tusk of investigating the conduct
of the war on the part of the War De?
partment. The list of names as given
out contains some names that are fa?
miliar in both the political and educa?
tional world, and if the body is given
full authority to force the attendance
and testimony of the witnesses they
desire to examine, it is quite likely that
the investigation will amount to some?
thing more than the whitewashing pro?
cess which many persons suppose It to
be. It is evident' that the President
wishes to get at the truth of the mat?
ter. The names of many of the men
whom he has invited to sit on the com?
mission are so far above all shadow
of suspicion that no reasonable person
can doubt the sincerity and earnest?
ness of the chief executive. There are
members of the commission as it is
now formed who can be depended upon
to "hew to the line.let the chips fall
where they may," and In view of the fact
that a"major!ty" reportwill have little
Weight in vindicating the department,
It Is not difficult to see the political
complexion of the body is immaterial.
It is now announced that Colonel
Picquart, who defended Captain Drey?
fus at his alleged trial will be prose?
cuted for using forged papers. Hut for
the fact that the victim of the case
Is wearing away his life In solitary
confinement at Devil's Island this whole
Infamous affair with Its charges and
counter-charges would seem like a
huge and Inexplicable nightmare that
would vanish with the first ray of in?
telligent and honest investigation.
Whatever may be said either for or
against the accused officers one fact has
been plainly established. The French
army is corrupt and rotten to the
core. Whether or not there is a revi?
sion of the Dreyfus case there should
be a revision of the army. When it
becomes necessary for high officers to
resort to forgery and other methods
equally as bad to maintain the "honor"
of their commands it is quite evident
that there is a screw somewhere that
needs more or less tightening.
It Is announced that Mrs. Lease lias
espoused spiritualism. If one max
take tie past as a criterion, Mary El?
len is perfectly willing to espouse al?
most any old thing that will permit
ius; to prance around on the stage and
give oral expression to her voluminous
