JUSTICE TO DREYFUS.
FRENCH CABINET DECIDES IN FAVOR
OF REVISION.
The Document, to lie Mont to the Court
of Ce.mtfoii. Tho Minuter ot Justice
Will Proceed Ageluet Any One Attuck
* ing the Army.
Paris, Sept. 27.—At a meeting of the
rabinet Monday morning, all the min
isters being present, a decision was
taken In favor of a revision of the trial
Df Albert Dreyfus, the captain of artil
lery who was degraded on charges of
Belling military secrets to a foreign
power, and sentenced to imprisonment
en Devil's Island, near Cayenne, and
the documents in the case will be sent
to the court of cessation.
The crowds of people outside the min
istry of the interior, where the cabinet
council was held, loudly cheered the
ministers, and there were shouts of
"Vive Brisson!" "Vive la revision!"
The cabinet ordered the minister of
Justice, M. Sarrlen, to lay before the
court of cessation the petition of Mine.
Dreyfus, wife of the prisoner of Devil's
Island, for a revision of her husband's
case.
The court, therefore, will decide the
legal question as to whether the first
trial of Captain Dreyfus was vitiated
by the forgery committed by the late
Lieutenant Colonel Henry, who was a
witness before the court martial, and
who confessed to having forged a doc
ument in the case.
The minister of Justice has announc
ed that he has given instructions that
proceedings are to be taken immedi
ately against any one attacking the
army.
Henri Rochefort, in his paper, the
Intransigeant, accuses Major Esterha
zy of having been bribed by the so
called Dreyfus syndicate, to "cover
himself with dishonor by confession to
II forgery, of which charge he was
twice acquitted." M. Rochefort asserts
that he paid Esterhazy 1,009 francs for
copies of all the documents In the case,
and that, in addition, with two other
newspaper men, he paid Esterhazy,
who was literally without a centime,
800 francs monthly to prevent him from
Bying of hunger while waiting to obtain
a pension.
Continuing. M. Rochefort says: "Re
cently, without any apparent incentive,
Esterhazy mysteriously went to Lon
don, abandoning his three hundred
francs monthly. Why this emigration?
Who paid for his Journey? With
what money has Esterhazy paid for
his meals?"
The Figaro says: "The government
may safely decide In favor of or
against a revision, but Its duty is to
come to a prompt determination."
M. Clemenceau, in the Auroru, says
"France is divided into two camps,
those who conceive that the Interests
of the country depend upon the con
cealment of fact? by lies, and those
who have a sufficiently high esteem
tor the country not to separate patri
otism from the aspirations of Justice
Bnd truth."
Great ltrltuln. Friend
Washington, Sept. 26.—An instance

"Although there is no positive infor
mation, all the evidence tends to the
conviction that the emperor is dead.
A private dispatch says he died on Sep
tember 21, directly he issued the edict
giving the dowager empress the regen

Chang Yin Huen, who was minister at
Washington in 1895, are both innocent
of the charge of poisoning the emper

Mail says:
"The head eunuch at the palace in

OREGON'S CHAPLAIN ON TRIAL.
%V U IJe lVe.d Mental Irreponilblllty for
11-mark* About blimp,on uu.l Ev..it
Denver, Col., Sept. 27.—The court
martial convened for the trial of Chap
lain Joseph P. Mclntyre of the battle
ship Oregon met here at 1 o'clock yes
terday afternoon. It was ushered In
with a sensation.
Instead of the calling of witnesses to
Inaugurate the trial, as is customary.
Attorney Earl M. Cranston, attorney
* if the accused, made an address to the
court.
Although the text of that address U
unknown, the doors being closed, those
who are best quullfied to Judge of such
matters, assert that It is a practical
admission of the charges and specifi
cations and a proposition to submit
to the court the expert testimony of
Drs. Eskridge and Pershing.
These two physicians are specialists
In nervous disorders. They made an
examination of Chaplain Mclntyre on
Saturday. This was done at the In
stance of friends of Mclntyre, who
think that by reason of great mental
excitement resulting from his experi
ence In the Santiago campulgn he was
not responsible for itterances he may
have made In his lecture delivered here
on August 8.
The object sought In trying to have
the testimony of these specialists sub
mitted would obviously be to waive a
trial and throw the chaplain on the
mercy of the court.
The charges against Chvplain Mcln
tyre are three: Scandalous conduct
tending to the destruction of good mor
als, conduct to the prejudice of good
order and discipline, asd conduct un
becoming an officer of the United States
navy.
The specifications are ten in number
and comprise quotations from a news
paper report of the lecture which the
chaplain delivered in the Trinity Meth
odist Episcopal church here on August
8, and in which he is alleged to have
questioned the honesty of Admiral
Sampson and the courage of Captain
Robley D. Evans.

Lumber Growing Less
The Lock Haven Express says:
A gentleman who has been travel
ing through the up-river lumber
regions says that lumber is growing
scarce in the Clearfield region, and
there are now only a few large un
broken tracts. These will be clear
ed and the lumber manufactured at
sawmills erected in the woods. The
building of the new railroad sixteen
miles in length will open up the
lumber region of Southern Clear
field and give an outlet for both coal
and lumber. The latter will be
sawed in the forest.
Next spring the drive above the
mouth of the Siunemahoning will
consist of about thirty million feet
of logs and will be the last drive
from that region. There will be
about thirty million feet of logs
from the region of Siunemahoning
and places this side, making about
sixty million feet to pass Lock
Haven.
There will be fifty rafts of round
timber put in at one point in the
Clearfield region and this will be
about all the timber that will come
off the river from above the mouth
of the Siunemahoning. There will
be but few rafts of square timber
cotne down the river next spring,
and the lumber men have conclud
ed there is more money in round
logs- ' •"

Not Mercenary, '
No people care less about money
than Americans. We are universally
accused of extravagance. Our rich
men astonish the world by their liber
ality toward colleges and libraries and
churches and charities. The posses
sion of wealth on one side and its lack
on the other is something of a bar to
marriage all the way from a London
palace to a tribe of American Indians,
but in no other civilized community is
it so little of a bar as it is in the United
States.
But our reputation is not purely fic
titious. There is a reason for it, but
one that proves the stupidity of Euro
pean observers, with rare exceptions.
The woman who has to make her own
clothes is obliged to give more thought
to her dress than the more fortunate
woman who has simply to send her
orders to her modiste, or, better yet.
receive the suggestions of her costum
er. And yet she does not necessarily
care more for dress; probably she cares
less for it than the rich woman who
gives but a quarter of the time to the
subject of clothes. It happens that
! comparatively few Americans have
been lucky enough to inherit fortunes
from their fathers, and still fewer have
made mercenary marriages in foreign
countries. They have therefore been
obliged to make their own money, and
to give that subject more attention
than foreigners, who either inherit
wealth or have no hope whatever of
securing it. The American gives more
attention to the acquisition of money
than the European does, for he hasn't
it and may get it, while the European
has it without eflort or cannot get it
with effort. But the American spends
it more generously, suffers less when
he loses it, and estimates very much
less than the European.—Fred Perry
