the imminence of War With (iermany
Ridiculed In llcrlin.
Rexxes, Fr.mco, Aug. 14. Two rueu
ambushed Maitre Labori, counsel for
Dreyfus, aud one shot was fired, hitting
Labori in the bacK. M. Labcri fell in
the roadway. He is still alive.
Maitre Lattori left his house aloue for
the court at about 6 o'clock this morn
ing. His residence is situated iu the
suburbs of the town, about a quarter of
an hour's walk from the Lycee, the
route being along a solitary road beside
the river Vilaine. He had reached a
point half way on his journey, when
two men, who had evidently been lying
iu wait for him, rushed out of a narrow
lane and one of them fired a single shot
from a revolver.
The murderers wero only a couple of
yards behind their victim and the bul
let struck Maitre Labori in tho back.
The wounded man uttered an agonized
cry and fell flat on his face. The mur
derers immediately fled through the
lane from which they had emerged aud
About 7:'J0 o'cIock it was announced
that tho bullet had entered the stomach;
that there was no outward bleeding,
and that tlie physicians believe that M.
Labori will die from the wound.
A later story has it that M. Labori
was shot in tho temple by a man who
fired a icvolver at him outside the
court, aud that the miscreant was ar
rested. Bexnes, France, Aug. 14. The Drey
fus courtmartial was resumed today.
In view of tho confrontation of Merrier
by Casimir-Perier, when tho former will
virtually be in the prisoner's dock, a
dramatic scene will likely occur.
It is understood that even a more
thrilling incident "than that which
ended Saturday's session was expected
by the counsel of Dreyfus and would
have occurred but for General Mercier's
prudence. Dreyfus intended aud had
actually declared his deteimination to
Hap Mercier's face before the whole
court, if he brought up tho story of the
relations of Dreyfus with Mme. B., who,
some newspapers have, asserted, acted
as go-between lor Dreyfus and the at
tache to whom lie is alleged to have
mauo treasonable revelations.
Mercier abstained from all reference
to the story, but despite this, the people
iu the court thought for a moment tnat
Dreyrus was about to strike Mercier,
until a captain of gendarmes took him
gently by the arm and pushed him back
into his stat.
Mercier, minister of war when Drey
fus was condemned, had spoken .nearly
four hours in ruthless denunciation of
Dreylus, who had listened unmoved un
til Mercier concluded by saying that if
ne uaa not ceen convinced ot the guilt
of Dreyfus, and if the hitter's convic
tion had not been fortified tince 1S'.)4,
he would admit he had been mistaken.
Dreyfus jumped to his feet and
shouted "tnat is what you ought to
'lhe audeuce hurst into a wild cheer,
whereupon the ushers called for silence,
But wheu Mercier replied that he would
admit Dreyfus was innocent if there
was any douut, the prisoner shouted
" Why don't you then ': That is your
At this there was another outburst of
applause. M. Casimir-Perier then rose
and dramatically demanded to be con
fronted with General Mercier in order
to deny some of his statements.
Colonel Jouaust ordered the court to
be adjourned" until today at 0:30 a. m.
for tho confrontation, and as Mercier
turned to leave the court the audience
rose enmasse and hissed and cursed
him, those at the back of the court
standing on chairs aud benches in order
to better hound him down. Tho gend
armes placed themselves between the
general and the audience, who showed
a strong disposition- to maltreat the
former minister of war.
General ai'ercier hurried out of the
courtroom through a side door, amid
fierce denunciations from the audience.
M. Casimir-Perier said that neither
he nor tho cabinent saw the dossier till
a fortnicht after the condemnation of
"For the honor of the magistracy
and the honor of France," tlie ex-president
added, "I feel compelled to speak
tlie truth iu defense of au innocent
This declaration M. Casimir-Perier
uttered in a vibrant voice, rising' till it
broke with emotion.
Thercwus an outburst of applause iu
the courtroom. The president threat
ened to clear the court if tlie demon
stration was repeated.
M. CaMinir-Perier proceeded with his
testimony, occasionally referring to a
pauer which he held to refresh his
memory as to a date, but speaking with
out hesitation. He said that one motive
for 'lis resignation of tho presidency
was the ignorance in which he had
been kept regarding the Dreyfus affair.
He reiterated that he had sworn to the
truth. He denied there was danger of
war with Germany over the Dreyfus
itd'uir. He 'also denied that Captain
Lebruu-Renanld had ever communi
cated to him a confession alleged to
have been made b- Dreyfus.
Mercier's testimony was mostly a
weary, endless defense of himself, au
argument of the whole case over again,
without one word of proof against Drey
fus. He rehearsed tho whole affair from
his own point of viow, but made one of
the two sensatioual points. Tho first
was when he says Perier had not told
llio wliolo story of tho diplomatic inci
dent; that lie, Mercier, was so certain
that Germany was about to dcclaie war
that he kept Boisdetfre aud hundreds of
officers nearly all night at. tho war of
fice, ready to concentrato the whole
Freudi army at strategic points.
Verier wiggled iu his seat and waved
ins luiiul in objection. Tho uudienco
received this with mtirmurs of incredu
lity. Mercier.had it that matters wore
so urgent aud dangerous that he dared
not openly publish the documents he
held, but sent them privately to the
courtmartial for their inspection.
This statement was received with
loud, coutemptnons murmurs. It was
his excuse for furnishing the judges
with tlie secret dossitr uukuown to the
accused. Casimir-Perier. had cut this
ground from uur him and his excuse
had failed. He rallied, however, with
a most sensational statement:' "I know
that General Jamout -has said that
IJo.OOO.OOO francs wero sent from Ger
inauy to assist the cause of Dreyfus."
Tiiis was uufjuestionabiy sensational,
but it was yke a boulevard canard, so
feeble iu its form if hearsay gossip in
stead of business-like evidence that it
only produces, "oh! oh! oh!" of con
tempt and murmurs of derision.
Mercier's discourse was simply a long
argument, interrupted by the reading
of many letters. He concluded with
the impressively stated conviction that
the court of cassation was wrong; that
Esterhazy could not have written the
bordereau; that Dreyfus alone knew
the facts; that Dreyfus alone was guilty.
Berlin, Aug. 14. The statements ol
General Mercier before the courtmartial
at Renues regarding the imminence oi
war .between Germany and France ex
cites ouly ridicule hero. The general
opinion is that the former war minister

logical view point.
The semi-official newspapers declare
that there was never auy idea of war
and that, even had Count von Munster,
the German ambassador in Paris, been
recalled, a charge d'affaires would have
been empowered to hurry on the em

tions Promised Porto lClcons..
Wasuixqtox, Aug. 14. Secretary
Root is beginning to get a firm grasp on
the administration of the war depart
ment. He has been at the head of af
fidrs only about 11 days, yet this has
been suthcieut to show his methods and
wie iniiueuce wliicn ins vigorous per
sonality exerts throughout the military
irom Adjucant General Corbin he
secured data showing at a glance a
broad outline of the arnry in the field,
fjrom the quartermaster general ho
learned the nnmber of transports, their
capacity, readiness to carry troops and
the exact status of stores, clothing aud
equipment, particularly as to General
Otis forces in front of the enemy. Of
tho commissary general he asked just
how many reasons were in actual stock
at Manila, how long this supply would
last, how quickly it could be replen
ished and whether there was ample
margiu for oveiy emergency. The
same information has been drawn as to
ordnance, medical and hospital supplies,
engineering and signal equipment.
A military map is now being prepared
by the adjutant general's office, for the
private use of the secretary, showing
tho advance of our forces from.day to
day throughout General Otis' cam
paign, the position and movements ou
different occasions, the retreat of the
enemy aud its position aud force from
time io time.
Tne secretary has conferred with the
commanding general, General Miles,
and with General -Merritt on the mili
tary problems presented, and, besides
the military results of these counsels, it
has established co-operation between the
executive head of the war department
ud the ranking officers of the army.
Concerning Cuba and Porto Rico, the
detailed administration of their affairs,
with its multitude of minor issues, is
Icing left largely with his assistants
and chiefs, and he is concerning him
self with the larger questions of the re
construction and fntnre of these isl
ands, and with the substitution of
orderly civil government for the lnili
fciry regime now in force. When for
mer Premier Rivera urged that au
order be speedily issued for municipal
elections in Porto Rico, tlie secretary
replied rhat he hoped these elections
would occur as soon as the present un
happy and stormswept condition of the
islaud would permit. When it was
suggested that the desolation in Porto
Rico made it opportune a remission of
duties ou articles of prime necessity,
the secretary said he was already con
ferring with General Davis, governor
general of the island, as to that step.
