HoiL Joseph H. Choate, of New. York.
In his address before the American Bar
Association, ot Saratoga yesterday,
among other things said:
^Recurring then to the more strictly
professional objects of our meeting, and
selecting a t^pic pertaining to the
eclcnce of Jurisprudence, which this As- '
eociatJon ivas organizsed to promote,
I have thought that you would indulge
ane for a brief, hour in considering u
subject to which I could brine at least
1 ???imi?m of n larcc
?Mrtenc*. and which. I huvo greatly >?
heart?asubject m trite, that perhaps
nothing new con be said about It.
Vn| been more ?ll9CU"?ed than
?fher b?t which yet r-mnlns a subject
ofever fresh and vital intereat to every
American lawyer and dtl*en?the trial
bv Jury. Since you last met me. a thrlllln,.
event of prime Importance In It*
xriatlonn to Jurisprudence has occurro^
5? Frence. which must have arrested
the attention of every thought (ulobserver.
and have led especially these
,aK:iclau? theorists who have never
tircil of denounclnn trial by Jury, and
those t-xpermental philosophers and
legislators who are always seeking to
limit or to mutilate It. or tamper with
in some way or other, to reconsider
th- matter and think once more whether
ten should not do better to let it olone.
or only sustain and improve it so as
to preserve it Inviolate, as the Constitution
of the United States and those of
most of the states require.
You will readily recall the main Incidents
of the trial of Zola. An army
officer belonging to a race obnoxious to
the hatred on<l Jealousy (if the French
people, accused of an Infamous crime,
hounded by a court martial, and after
(lie most shameful degradation, had
been coindemmed for life to solitary
confinement upon a rock in the sea, eatJng
out his heart with despair more bltJnp
than the talons of the vulture or the
beak of the eagle. He protested his
Innocence^ and scores of the best men
Jn France declared their faith in it also,
among them statesmen and officials of
hkh rank and character, and befo'qe
Ion? it became apparent that, , whether
guilty or Innocent, he had been condemned
practically unheard, and the
Government declared that "reasons of
State" forbade that the truth snouw
be known. It was at this point that
Zola, the most notorious at least, if not
the most powerful, of French writers,
with a courage anil a chivalry never
surpassed, took up the unhappy victim's
cause, proclaimed his Innocence,
ond challenged the authorities to bring
himself to trinl for this accusation
agnlnst the court martial, which, as he
declared, had covered the Illegality of
the conviction of Dreyfus by the Judicial
crime of consciously acquitting the
real criminal. The government took up
the challence. nnd then followed a trial
which, for reckl??s and cruel disregard
of every prlnclole of right and Justice
known to us. Is surely without precedent
in modern history, and yet It purported
to be a Jury trial. A Jury wn?
nworn. but apparently Its sole function
was to register the edict of the government.
the army and the press, which
demanded conviction. Of course. th?.*
defendant was presumed to be guiltv
until he should prove himself to be Innocent.
but every effort of himself and
his counsel to elicit the truth was
thwarted. A hostile audience, with
which the court room was packed, was
permitted to cover the accused with
contumely. "Conspuez Zola!" greeted
his entrance. Invective from Court,
prosecutor and witness took the place
of evidence and of argument. There
was no rlj ht of cross-examination,, no
law of cvider.ce;?witnesses who were
summoned defiantly stayed away;?
irhn Kima tn (noMfv ftir_
ther than they chose, and were suffered
to harangue the Jury for the prisoner
and against th^ prison*-, and "retired
amid Irrepressible appplause." Hearsay
was the main staple of the proceedings.
A perfect pandemonium prevailed
throughout the trial, and at the end of
two weeks, as everybody had known
from the beginning, the heroic defendant
was convicted and sentenced, and
his principal witnesses were degraded
or dismissed from the public services
However satisfactory such n method of
administering criminal jnstlce may be
to the French people, who cling to It
through all changes of government, It
could not but excite horror and disgust
throughout the Anglo-Saxon world.
The proceedings were rend wherever
Zola's farclnating romances had preceded
them. Every safe-guard of personal
liberty enjoyed in England and
America for two centuries had been violated.
We could not read the account
ci me mm witnout contrasting it witn
our own trial by Jury, or without Iho
pious utterance from every Up. "Thank
God! I am an American."
Heroic Zola! It Is pleasant to think
of him ^njoylnpr the free air of Switzerland
oft*T all. having: taker. French
leave of his country, instead of rottlnp
in the dungeon to which her despotism
under a republican mask would have
consigned him.
This signal event, so shocking to cur
seni?e of Justice and right hus done
more, I am happy to believe, than whole
volumes of argument to strengthen and
perpetuate our faith in our wholly different
system of procedure for tho ascertainment
of facts on which life, liberty
or property nr^ to be brought In judgment.
It will help to present In Its mtegrlty
our precious trial by Jury, by
which no man can be deprived of life or
liberty by th?? sentence of i court until
K...H nneen proved beyond all rca onable
doubt to the unanimous satisfaction
of twelve of his Mlow citizens,
and no man can lose his reputation or

WASHINGTON, Aug. 18.?It is the
opinion of the officials of the treasury
deportment there will be no necessity
for another bond1 Issue growing out of
the war ami that the present revenue
Jaw, with possibly slight modifications,
should! be retained/ on the statute books
for an Indefinite period. The following
may be taken as the views of the treasury
department on' these subjects:
"It may be confidently hoped that no
further Issues of bonds will be necessary
In connection with bringing" the.extraordinary
war expenditures to a close.
With the treasury well supplied- for the i
early future, and1 with the -power conferred
upon the secretary to make temporary
loan9 to the extent of $100.000,000
If required, any further resort to bond
Issues Heems a most remote probability, j
This view la reinforced by the fact that
with the operation of the new excise 1
and! st'am-p taxes, the revenue* of the.
government wlH largely exceed disbursements
based upon ordinary peace |
conditions. This Increase in revenue
ought to and will provide for an Increase

Is a matter of congratulation that by
the wise action of congress the government

Th* Invasion of Pnrrtn Itlco
T. Dart Walker, the artist and war
correspondent who accompanied General
Miles' expedition1 to Puerto Rico for
Harper's Weekly, writes of the scenes
on the transports. He says:
"The rank and file \%<?re packed as
closely as the horses. Their hammocks
were new and comfortable. But how
much room did they ha^e in which to
swing? Just eighteen Inches. Iff. the
drill regulations of the army the width
of a man is estimated at twenty-two
Inches. It is not pleasant to have four
inches of your twenty-two cut off when
you are trying to sleep in terrific heat,
and tlie ship is rolling Into the bargain.
The troops on- the Roumanian- and the
City of Washington'were timply packed
on board, andt they suffered some. They
didn't complain-. Why should they?
They were going to war, or something
resembling It?and why should they expect
home or even sea comfort* at such
a time? The long delay and uncertainty
aa to starting wen? over. and. discomfort
could be endured because of that.
The point of view xxmkes a difference In
the perspective.
"The men on the St. Louis and St.
Paul really had some sea comfort.-*,however.
They had room in which to sleep.
There, too, these ships were scrupulously
clean?at least the St. Louis was.
Captain Goodrich of the St. Louis is not
the kind of a man to tolerate even a
suspicion of dirt. No troop ship horrors
for htm. His complete forethought. In
providing all requisite nece.iKa.ries ami
in making his ship absolutely wholesome
throughout was much appreciated
by all on board. The large deck space
on the St. Louis and the St. Paul gave
the soldiers comfort. One night proved
Its advantages. Sleep was Impossible In
the hot cabins ami hotter bunKs?wen
ventilated though the ships were. The
second night found hundreds of m"n on
the St. Lourfs, privates ami oMcers,
?< retched out In a confused Jumble on
the spacious deckf, all wrapped up In
blankets. Mr. Walker's plcturo, taken
from Harper"* Weekly, faithfully portrays
this scene. Here and there whiteclad
sailors picked their ways about, silently.
The soldiers hcedvd them not;
their fatigue Inducing the soundest
klmJ of slumfoer. Nor did the troops
move about much in the daytime. In
fact, for thref days end three nights
each man seemed to He in the sjune
place. Tlrey wtre resting, simply resting;
and the fact that they lay still Indicated
that they needed rest.
"There was very lltt'le seasickness on
rhe trip down?on this ship at least.
Only about a dozen fever cases were* devele?pe<l.
a fact which reveals the thor

The reaction In prices of slocks, which
has been looked for for several days,
came in the late trading ifasday. The
professional traders have been eagerly
anticipating this action of the market
and have several times sought to bring
it about by attacking stocks with short
sales^ They were having fair success
yesterday when the' announcement of
me increase in wie wurnnfuon aiviavna
put them to rout. The subsequent upward
surge of the market served to
mako it att the more vulnerable to bear
attack, and they opened their guns anil
made an onslaught on Tobacco, People's
Gas and. Brooklyn Rapid Tranpit. Although
this assault came with very
heavy realizing offerings in the grangers
and Pacific and some other recent
favorites, the outside demand was so
enormous aa to take the market away
from the professionals and- lift prices
upwards in furiously active and very
widely distributed1 trading. But there
came a time later in-the day when the
outside demand was for the time saMsfled
and when the recent purchasers of
stocks were still anxious to take the
handsome profits accrued upon them.
The bears kept nibbling at the Hst and
made an aggressive attack in the last
hour, which carried prices down sufficiently
to wipe out weak margins and
bring out stop loss orders. The group
of low priced railroad stocks and industrial
specialists into which the tide of
speculation shifted- had not sufficient
strength to hold the market in the face
of this liquidation, although they held
stubbornly through most of it Some of
them finally succumbed with the rest of
the list when it fell generally below last
ntirKt'M i#?voi Thft hull cllaue apparently
offered no resistance to the decline, but
support was forthcoming before It had
proceeded to any great length. The activity
of the market greatly decreased,
ami the volume of business was materially
smaller than yesterday. It is striking
evidence of how far the New York
market has cut* loose from the lendership
of London that to-day's decline
came when. London for the first time
practically ceased to sell- stocks in New
York and turned buyer of many of the
leading In-ternationala Sterling exchange
weakened' In response to this development.
Money rates continue easy
and' unchanged!, but there is a growing
demand for funds from the interior. As
gold Is unsuitable for this purpose and
there Is almost a famine of legal tenders,
there Is a lively demand for the
new government 3 per cent for the bank
circulation. This bond commandd 105^

Wet weather in the northwestern

to some extent for the firmness

of trading in wheat. An Increase
In arrivals up north and a prediction
by th?- weather bureau of fnlr weather

country, changed the temper of the
speculative crowd and the direction of
prices. When weakness set In it was
mor? particularly apparent In December

being to get .put ami stay out of September
In view of the small rash hero.
The hope of higher prices Indulged In
by the bulls In the market hove of late
been largely based on the expectation
that the bears would oversell themselves
for September. The bears also appeared
to have some apprehension on that
seore, and transferred their ventures to

ncter to the trading In September and
reducing December to an altogether unusual
discount under such condition? a*
exist nt present. The conditions have
no exact jural lei In former seasons, for
never before were visible slocks so
small. Chicago received 101 cars,
ngalnst 311 last year. Minneapolis and
Duluth pot 420 earn, compared with 77
a week ago and 146 the corresponding
day of the previous year. The aggregate
of the primary western market receipts
are still under that of the previous
year. The total to-day was 673,000
bushels, and a year ago 792,000 bushels.
The Atlantic port clearances were equal
In wheat and flour to 412,000 bushels.
The course of the market was rather
?i>,i*if.,fili1i> with Hnoll'i nf u'cnkficiiti. fol
lowed by considerable strength. September
wan much more susceptible to
buying thon selling orders, readily recovering
from moderate declines. December
wan less easily affected, but also
responded when September was In urgent
request. The shipping demand for
wheat wns ns brisk n? over. The sale
of 130,000 bushels of No. 2 hard for shipment
nt 70*i$70%c startled the shorts,
the ensh price being Co ever September,
with the latter month only an eighth off.
The covering that followed that transaction
rallied the prlc* of September and
December over a cent each, and th?market
closed with enough offerings to
satisfy the demand. September opened
