A Move in Droyfua Oaso that Practically
Insures Acquittal.
LABORI MAKES A STRONG APPEAL

ROME, Sept. C (New York World
Cablegram.) It la understood tlmt the
Italian government will not ullow
Panizzardl to go to Rennes, but will
permit lilo cvldcnco to Do given the
French embassy at Rome.
RENNES, Sept. C. M. Laborl this
afternoon telegraphed personal appeals
to Emperor William and King Hum
bert to grant permission to Colonel
Schwartzkoppen and Colonel Panlz
znrdl, German and Italian military at
taches In Paris In 1S9 1, to coma to
Rcnncs to testify In the trial of Cap
tain Dreyfus. This Is the news of tho
day and tho chief topic of conversation
In tho cafes and among tho Journalists.
Tho appoals woro couched In eloquent
terms, Invoking tho assistance of their
majesties In the nnmo of Justlco and
humanity. They nro qulto supple
mentary to tho formal applications
that will bo mado by tho government
commissary, Major Carrlorc.
Tho demand of M. Laborl, that tho
court martial should Issuo processes
Hubjcct to tho approval of tho two sov
ereigns camo llko a thunderbolt today.
Tho step Is fraught with momentous
consequences, as it affords Emperor
William an opportunity to assumo hia
favorlto rolo of arbiter of tho destinies
of tho world. No ono will ho surprised
if Colonel Bchwartzkoppcn in tho name
of tho kaiser makes a declaration that
will practically decldo tho result of tho
trial.
Doth Schwartzkoppen and Panlzzar
dI must consult their respective sover
eigns before starting, but tho counsel
for Dreyfus fully expect them to come,
if they Camo at till, to bo in timo to
glvo their testimony Thursday, In
which caso tho trial would probably
conclude this week.
Tho nppcaranco of Colonels
Schwurtzkoppcn nnd Pantmrdl would
bo tho most BotiBatlonal as well as tho
most Important Incident of the ontlro
trial, Their depositions would bo a
formal and emphatic declaration that
they nover had any relations with tho
nccuscd and they would mako such n
Btatomcnt that tho court must order
an acquittal. Thoso who aro In tho
conftdonco of tho counsel entrusted
with tho defenso express a firm con
viction that Dreyfus will now bo ac
quitted. Novorthelcss, ono of tho most
prominent gonorals with whom tho
correspondent of tho Associated Press
conversed today declares hlmsoh
"qulto pleased with tho progress of tho
trial thus far," and confldcrit of n con
clusion "ontlroly satisfactory to tho
prcscoutlon,"
It la hearted this evening that tho
minister of war, General tho Marquis
do Qalllfot has sent orders to tho gen
erals and other military witnesses to
leave Rennes and return to their re
spective posts within two hours nftor
tho conclusion of tho depositions and
not to bo prosont dining the pleadings.
They will thus bo absent whon tho
verdict Is delivered. General Morclor,
being on tho retired list, Is not affected
by this order, but Goncrals Rogot,
Gonso and Do Dolsdoffro must go.
Thcso orders aro Intended not only to
avert a demonstration In favor of tho
generals, accompanied probably by so
rlous dlsordors, but also to prevent tho
moral effect of tholr presence In tho
court room whllo tho Judges nro delib
erating as to tholr verdict and perhaps
to prevent something oven worso than
moral Influence.

LONDON, Sept. G. A dispatch from
Johannesburg to Router's Agency defi
nitely announces that tho reply of tho
Transvaal republic to tho Drltlsh com
munication withdraws tho franchlso
proposals and ngrecs In principle to a
conference nt Capetown.
M. Pukmnn, editor of tho Transvaal
Leader, has been released under C00
ball and tho charges against him havo
been reduced from trenson to violation
of tho press laws.
Tho afternoon papers tako tho view
that If tho foregoing dispatch Is cor
rect President Kruger's reply Is omin
ous, as It was palpably mado to gain
time.
Sir Alfred MUncr's suggestion of a
further confcrcnco nt Capetown was
instigated with tho solo purpose of
considering details and for tho enforce
ment of tho concessions offered by tho
Boers. It these concessions aro with
drawn thoro can bo no object from n
British point of vlow for parleying
longer. Tho only Inference to bo drawn
Is that tho Boers havo taken Mr. Joseph
Chamberlain, tho secretary ot stato for
tho colonics, at his word in a broader
senso than ho Intended, and that they
now want to begin negotiations over
ngaln on an entirely now basis.
Tho secretary for tho colonies, Joseph
Chamberlain, arrived in London this
afternoon nnd at onco proceeded to the
foreign office. It Is understood thnt ho
will romaln hero until tho end of tho
crisis.
Tho wnr office refuses to confirm the
rumor that n proclamation will bo
Issued calling out tho reserves.
Sept. C a. m. Amid tho crowd of
conflicting dispatches from South
Afrlcn regarding tho Bltuatlon, It Is
still lmposslblo to say exactly what
has happened. It seems ovtdont, how
ever, that President Krugcr nas with
drawn tho five-year franchlso, which
was dependent on Grent Britain's ac
ceptance; of Impossible conditions re
garding suzerainty and lino mado somo
sort of temporizing counter suggestions
regarding a conference.
Tho Standnrd and Diggers News
gives what purports to bo a report of
tho secret session of the volksrnad on
Saturday. According to this nccount
tho volksraad not only determined to
reject the fivo-year proposal, but stout
ly opposed President Krugcr visiting
Capetown nnd resolvod to mnko n
stand for 'tho abrogation' of England's
cuatm for suzerainty. Tho Boor organ
again asserts: 'Tho government, both
tho rnads and tho nurguors, icei mat
they havo offorcd all thoy Intend to
offer nnd aro now resolved to stand
or fall by this decision."
Boer statements of this kind, coupled
with tho arrests at Johannesburg.
speak louder than tho wriggling pre
tenses of Pretoria about arriving at an
understanding. Certainly, Mr. Monoy-
ponny nnd tho other refugoes will not
bo In n hurry to return to Johannes
burg on nccount of tho fine assurances
of tho state's attorney.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 5. Senator
Cnrtcr of Montana, In nn Interview
with a Post reporter, Bald In his opin
ion the war In the Philippines would
be ended by Januury 1. Then ho said
would como tho question of the ftituro
disposition of the islands. Tho repub
lican party ho believed would scttlo
this question by insisting that tho re
tention of the Philippines was a mat
ter of business profit.
"This," ndded the senator, "Is ft
practical age. Wo arc going to deal
v.-1 th this question on tho basis of dol
lars and cents. If tho American people
believe that tho Philippines aro going
to help us they will never let tho isl
ands go. If, on tho other hand, they
find that tho Philippines nro a constant
drain and n small return you will find
tho verdict of the people to be ngalnst
permanent retention. Neither religion
nor sentiment will havo much lnflu
enco In determining tho verdict. Tho
Great question will bo, Will It pay? If
wo can show tho country that It will
I think tho American flag will nover
como down from tho Philippines."
"What sort of government should bo
dovlscd?"
"Three suggestion will undoubtedly
bo mndc. Tho first will bo to abandon
tho Islands entirely to the natives. I
do not believe this will meet tho ap
proval of tho American people.
"Tho second will bo to seize tho Isl
ands In n firm grasp, assuring tho peo
ple thnt we mean to glvo them a better
government than they could enjoy
under nny other flag or could create
for themselves, but that wo nro, tho
masters and propose to remain so,
"Then tho third proposition will bo
to throw a looso string n round tho peo
ple, holding their seaports nnd custom
houses with our navy, but allowing
them absolute freedom In their Inter
nal affairs. This freedom In my Judg
ment would soon becomo anarchy and
wo would have to rulo anyway, so I
should say that tho second proposition
Is tho ono that ought to ho adopted.
The firmer wo nro In our ndmlnlstra
