army maneuvers in Alsace. Tho gen
eral effect of liia testimony was rather
unfavorable to tho prisoner.
Tho next two witnesses, however,
gave strong testimony in favor of Drey
fus, olid sadly knocked liermaius out.
His employer, n man named Kuhlmau,
declared that all Germains had said was
untrue, and Major Infrevlllo declared
lie never knew Dreyfus, so Oermains'
allusions to him were baseless.
Captain Lemonior, deposed that the
prisoner told him he was welt ac
quainted with a certain German posi
tion, because ho had followed tho Al
satian maneuvers. Dreyfus replied
that Lemonior must have mixed up his
remarks. Tho prisoner wnsacqualntod
with that part of Alsaco becauso ho was
present at tho maneuvers of the Ger
man army there.
Lieut. Horronhoiu testified that ho
lent Kstarhnzy documents dealing with
tho artlllorv.and was unable to get them

that it was oasvforan outsider to obtain
the particulars about guns. Ho him

he only onco flinched when the official

was road before him and the pictures of

thrown vividly on tho hereon of his
