Dreylu has relinquished hi appeal for a

Window of the lending nutl-Homlte organ,
.hero was not the slightest gathering or the
luiuteat sign of n demonstration either for
-r against Dreyfus.
Ou would think tbnt Ihe fire of the Drey
fus aeltai Ion had hurued Itself out. The
aull-Dreyfueard eveulug papers tried to In
luierent Into the government's action
' a rabid attack upou 1'realdent Iioubet,
but their effort were futile.
The peaceful crowds that filled the tnbles
lu front of the ca(t'. sipping their nflcr-dlu-nerronVe,
looked at tho newsboys who dis
played the front pages of these shoots with
I heir violent bend Hues, but utterly refused

... tlieous the matter, or only made the pa
tuic remark thut the decision m Just what
bad beu expected nud predicted by every
partisan newspaper since the Betines court
martial delivered Its verdict.
The aoil-Dreyfusnrd newspaper Bolr had
the most sensational cnotlon, two line of
enormous letter extending across the en
tire front page, announcing "The Traitor
Dreyfus Pardoned. Outrage ou the Aruiy."
Then, In the course of an article violently
altaoklug President Loubet, It said: "Lou
litt lias given himself a coup de grace lu
jTdonlng Dreyfus. IU should bo prot
ested for eniumlitlng uu outrage upou tho
army, for bl decision amounts to this. Uy
atruka of the pen be has destroyed tue
fleet of the sentences of two courts-mnr-ttal,
and bos declared that two uillltury
courts have lied."
The Bolr adds: "The alTalr has become
grave when the chief of state assumes the
leadership of the antl-milltary movement
4 pardon a confessed traitor, tinier the
pretext that he hits been condemned twice,
, iuetead of once."

The property loss Is very large, and tho

many narrow escapes from death nnd many
heroic rescues by the firemen, who, despite
tbe fact that they were exhausted by the
large lire Just preceding the hospital holo

their own was ut stake. B-sldes, they were
still further handicapped by the absence of
