UU WATER! w s FOR DREYFUS Retrial Granted Him by the Committee on Revision CIVIL COURT THIS TIME The Action cf the Commission Which Had Been Anticipated Was Brought by Production of Evidence not In- troduced at the Last Courtmartial. j Paris. Dec. 21. Captain Dreyfus, ac cused of treason to France, degraded, dismissed lrom the French army and exiled to- prison oa Devil's Island, will have another trial, this time by u civ ilian jury. A3 a result of the examination of all the evidence submitted to two courts martial, which have passed un the question of Dreyfus' guilt, as well as cn the petition of Dreyfus for i new trial, and additional facts brought to light by General Andre, minister of war. the commission on revision, repre senting the court of cassation, reached a decision today in favor of a revision of the cae by the criminal branch of th? court of cassation. The court will assemble next month and Dreyfus will then have a fuil opportunity to make a complete explanation of the wrongs he is said to havj suffered. The former captain, as a result of this new trial, expects to obtain vindication, follow ed by restoration to his former rank In the army. Though it had been announced that t!e revision commission would reach a. deciplcn this evening, tlwn-e were few persons outside the ministry of justice, wh?re the Fittings ot the commission were held, indicating that the interest of Parisians in the' case is not as k--en as it has been in the past. Dreyfus received the news of the de cision of the commission through per sonal friends, who extended to him Uieir earnest congratulations on the victory. The public was compelled to wait for its information until the reg ular edition of the evening; papers v.-er-published, as no extra editions were issued. The few persons who were at tha mi.nistry of justice saw the members of the revision commission leave the department shortly after 6 o'clock, ap parently glad that they had completed their task. There was absolute unity among the members of the commission. One member asserted that on facta presented, as a result cf th- investiga tion made by Captain Targe, an offi cer on the staff of War Minister Andre, another revision of the case was mads possible. The detail ; of the report of the com mission have not yet been made public, but it is stated generally that the pro duction cf evidence which had not been submitted to the court martial at Rati nes and the change of testimony oi CHRISTMAS GREETING.

Bellairs THE DAMAGING RUMORS The Genera! Said they Were Not Cir. culated Until After the Captain Left Cuba, but Investigation of Them Led to Nothing Definite. New York, Dec. 24. Theommercial Advertiser today prints a letter signed by General Leonard Wood and address ed to Dr. Horace Fletcher of Yale Uni versity, In which the writer tells of L. hi3 acquaintance witn Kdgar G. Bel lairs. In the letter, which was written at Cairo, on May 12 last. General Wood referring to Bellairs raid: "In the spring of he was promoted by the Associated Press to Havana from San tiago, not at my request or suggestion, direct or indirect as I remember it. He asked absolutely no favors of me or so far as I knew from any one. "Aft?r my transfer. to Havana as gov ernor of the whole island in December, lSf9, Bellairs continued on duty about five months and was then sent to China and the Philippines, not at my suggestion or request, direct cr indi ectly. I was sorry to have him go, as we all liked him and found htm reliable. In the Philippines I'ellairs was a be liever In military government Instead of civil and apparently wrote accord ingly, and, of course, trouble with the civil government in the way of loss of friendly relations followed. r k "After Bellairs left Havana ugly ru mors about him began to be circu lated. Thfy came almost entirely from a number of men who did not like him. and on investigation nothing dednlt. was found. I heard from him seldom. Finally some one published what pur- ported to be a story of Bellairs' actions i nlra an mat nis attitude toward the civil government was at my sug gestion and that I was working to re lieve Taft, etc., conclusions that are childish and foolish. Who started the : thing no one knows but doubtless Fome of the jK'Ople I had to handle ! withcut glove's during my stay in Cu- I ba. It was far fetched and dishonest and intended to create trouble. This is : the whole stcry. Bellairs was in no way especially intimate with mp or my fam- ily; that is to say. 1 do not think that in all his Cuban service he was at my table more than three, or at most, four, times.

ONE WAsInNOGENT Consul Baldwin Named in Post Office frauds The State Department Finds That he Used no Improper Influence in Be half cf Brandt Cashier. Washington, Dec. 24.

In response to a request from See retary Pierce, Judge Baldwin submit- ted a full report of his connection v. ith the matter under investigation. Refer ring to this report Mr. Pierc says: "Judge Baldwin seems to have suffi ciently met all the points covering any Improper action on his part w'th the purchase by the -postoftice depaitment j the Bran3t automatic cashier. He says , that in his capacity as lawyer, and holding no government position, he interested himself in the business of his son-in-law, who was local agent of the Brandt, Dont Co., to the extent cf talking wkh Perry Heath and re questing Heath to look, into the mat ter of the Brandt automatic cashier, and if he was satisfied that postmast ers were desirous of purchasing ma chines and that machine was a meri- 1 torious and useful device at itast to j accept' and pay for the uiachlnes al- ,oiiU in nco anil to rmrchas such demand fcr.

"This met by Judge Baldwin with a absolute and categorical denial, as is tne charge tnat ne was in any way connected with, or that he had ac knowledge of any agreement to pay money to Driggs cr that he knew at all of the employment of Driggs in any way by the company. "It appears to me, therefore, that Judge Baldwin has satisfactorily met the charges cf improper or corrupt con nection with the sale of the Brandt automatic cashiers to the postoffice de partment and that he should be deem ed exonerated from any complicity with any fraud or corruption which may have existed in that business." o USE OF FRIAR LAND BONDS.
