GEEATER THAN LAST YEAE,
Dig Increase In Huslness Shown by Clear
inghouse Statements Consumers'
Trade, Not Speculation.
New Youk, Aug. 20. It. G. Dun &
Oo.'s weekly review of trade issued to
day said iu part:
Nothing is more eloquent than the
facts. Actual, payments through the
principal clearinghouses for tho week
were 20.1 per cent larger than last year
and 5G.2 per ceut larger than in tho saino
week in 1892. For the month thus far
the dailv average of payments has been
2(5.2 per cent larger tuau lust year and
5C per cunt larger thau iu lb'J2. Ton
nage from Chicago iu three weeks have
been 80.70 per cent larger than last year
and 74.66 larger than iu 1892. It will
not be suggested by anybody that such
an astonismug increase over the most
Erosperous ot all past years except the
ist was expected. Most people really
regarded last year's expansion as some
thing like a freak. Nor is the differ
ence iu amount of payments mainly
due to rise in prices, for prices of sev
eral huudred articles actually range
lower now ou tho whole than in August.
It is a cousumers' business also. Per
haps never before have demands for
actual use controlled business and prices
with bo little speculation to auticipato
higher markets. In" fact the rise iu
most articles has gone further than
speculative opinions have warranted.
Practically all industries are some
mouths behind the requirements for
actual use, and in many much of tho
output next year is already sold.
Ironworks which supply Pittsburg
are sold up far into I'M), and can do
nothing though prices much beyond
what they received are paid by those
who must have iron this year, The on
ormous demand for more railroads, and
rails and cars, more vessels, warehouses
and buildings, to handle the extraordin
ary business in progress, cannot be
met as quickly as men would like, and
work of all sorts is delayed, from the
biggest war vessel to the smallest fac
tory. The demand for woolen goods has
goue beyond all expectations. The sales
ot wool are enormous, 35,677,190 pounds
in four weeks, 30,119,940 pounds being
domestic, with prices generally un
changed though coucessious are now
made to secure sales in some hues.
Reports of injury to wheat in the
northwest have att'ected the. niornet,
but only for a day or two, the price
closing three-quarters of a ceut lower
for file week.
Atlantic exports were slightly larger
than last year.
Corn exports continue heavy, in four
weeks' 16,723,524 bushels, against 9,818,
113 for the same weeks last year and
rose 1 8 cents during the week.

with kidnapping and was released

the child, said he is no relation to
Mrs. Rasmus, but she was acquaint

came six years of age she raised him
until he could hustle for himself.
His daughter Goldie was also raised
by Mrs. Rasmus. The latter said

Rexxes, Ang. 2f. Wheu the opening
of the fifth se.-siou of the tnirtl week of
the croud trial by conrtmartial of Cap
tain Alfred Dreyfus of the artillery,
charged with tiva.tou, occurred, the
clerk of the court read a medical cer
tificate, i-igued by two doctors whose
ujmes were uuknuwn to the audience,
lieclaring it was impossible for Colonel
Da P.ity de Clam to leav e his bed, come
to Reuues and testify.
Muitre Labori, leading counsel for the
defense, asked the president of the
court, Colouel Jouaust, to instruct two

Major Count Ksterhazy confessed to
him that he wrote tno famous bor
dereau. Replying to the court, Mr. Strong
said tuat Esterhazy, while admitting
the authorship ot" the bordereau, said
the documents enumerated iu it had
been betrayed by Dreyfus to Germany.
-u. Henri Weill, a former officer of
the headquarter's staff, was then called,
but he was absent and his deposition
was read. The facts iu the case were
published April 20. M. Weill's state
ment, iu substance, was that Esterhazy
told him in 1894 that Dreyfus was inno
cent, but that this would not prevent
his conviction, because he was a Jew.
A brief disenssion ensued regarding
tho character ot Colonel Picquart's for
mer orderly, Savaiguaud, who testified
tho day before to posting letters in May
and June, IS:)7, addressed by tho colo
nel to il. Schuerrer-Kcstner, tho former
vice president of the senate, who waa
prominent iu obtaining a revision of the
Dreylus case. During this discussion
Savaiguaud protested that he had been
coulouuded with a bandsman of the

The court closely followed M. Go

M. Gobert asserted that the handwrit

whereas Dreyfus, even when -writhm
rapidly, always wrote most legibly.
The witness asked General Gonse if

as he, M. Gobert, wished to see what
the writer's careful caligraphy was like,
explaining that the address of a letter
is always in a firmer hand than its con
tents. General Gonse refused the request ou
the ground that the witness must not
know the name of the addressee.
General Gonse, it appears from the
testimony, ,vas greatly enraged when
he learned or the result of M. Gobert's
examination of the bordereau and vis
ited the expert repeatedly. The latter
always insisted upon learning the name
of the suspect.
The witness described how, from au
examination of au official report on
Droylus, from which Dreyfus' name
had been removed, M. Gobert. had tho
malicious satisfaction of telling General
Gouso the name of tho officer they
wanted to arrest.
It was after M. Gobert had refused to
incriminate Dreyfus that M. Bertillon
was entrusted with the examination of
the bordereau, aud. aftor a few hours'
study, M. Bertillon positively attributed
the bordereau to Dreyfus.
Colouel Jouaust asKed M. Gobert for
a more definite criticism of tho border
eau, aud the witness replied that he no
ticed certain similarities between tho
hauaw riting of the bordereau aud that
of Dreylus, out, he added, there were
many important differences which
proved to hun that Dreyfus was not the
author of tho bordereau, and his opin
iou had siuce been confirmed, because it
was uow proved the bordereau was the
work ot iiaterhazy. Sensafiou.
Replying to the court, M. Gobert sug
gested that the judges compare the bor
dereau with a letter admitted to bo m
Kterhazy's handwriting and dated
from Roneu, Aug. 17, 1894, and with
documents written by the prisoner.-
'Yon will then unmistakably recog
nize," M. Gobert added, "that the bor
ereau is iu Esterhazy's handwriting and
uot in the handwriting of Dreyfus."
Great sensation. The witness at this
juncture identified the borderauu as the
wtino which was submitted to him aud
ho proceeded to point out the identity
of letters therein with letters in docu
ments admittedly written by Esterhazy,
saying that while tho resemblance was
uot apparent iu Dreyfus' haudwritiug
iu Esterhazy's there were marked pecu
liarities of punctuation and the manner
ot beginning tho Hues, which were also
noticiable iu the bordereau, but which
were u.jt found in tho prisoner's calig
raphy. Proceeding, tho witness traversed tljo
old ground of tho peculiarities of the
tracing paper which it is known Ester
hazy used and said the date of the bor
dereau must be July 24, 1894.
General Gonse asked permission to
question M. Gobert and said:
"In what army list did you look for
the name of Dreyfus?"
M. Gobort I used tho list whioh is
geucrally kept iu business houses.
The general pointed out that this list
did not give tho information claimed
by M. Gobert. Hut tho latter main
tained that he had stated nothing but
cho pure aud biinplo truth.
Goncral Gouso having alluded to cer
tain undesirable acquaintances formed
by Al. Gobert , the latter replied, amid
i sensation iu court:
"1 emphatically protest against tho
Insinuations of General Gonse. There
s not a sinplo word of truth iu what ho
t'here was a further dispute between
Ucueml Gouse and M. Gobert over cir
lumstauces iu connection with the lat
trr's examination of tho bordereau. M.
Coburt said that Colonel D'Aboville
wa-i present, but tho colonel promptly
Advanced aud said ho had never seen M.
Gobert before, addiug: "It M. Gobert's
other recollections aro as exact as this,
the court will draw its own conclu
sions." Murmurs of disapproval.
Dreyfus here declared in the most
positive manner that ho had never been
at the Bank of France, where M. Go
bert was employed, or liaa relations
with anyone there. The prisoner re
asserted that his sole desire was to
know the truth. Ho admitted he had
been ongaged iu various financial opera
tions, but said ho had never asked
cither for written or verbal information
trout tho Bank of France.
M. Bertillou, the noted anthropomcta-
ist, was called as tho next witness. He
wore a dork blue frock coat aud carried
a high hat iu his hand. M. Bertillon
requested permission to bring in his
diagrams aud papers. The request was
grauted aud M. Bertillon retired for a
moment, returuiug at the head of a
squad, composed of an infantry sergeant
and four privates, all staggering under
the weight of immense leather satchels,
bulgiug with documents, charts, etc.,
which they deposited on the stage as a
roar of laughter echoed throughout the
court. Eveu the judges were unable to
suppress a smile.
The witness began by saying that
only intelligent men could follow his
explanations. The court was soon half
emptied, as the audience, after smiling
audibly at his extraordinary words aud
expressions, became bored and went
M Bertillou's deposition occupied the
rest oi the session auit will, perhaps, oc
cupy a good part of today's session.
M. Bertillou, with gestures aud in
tho shrill, pitched voice of a quack at a
country lair, coutinued his monologue,
producing every minute sonio fresh
paper covered with wonderful hiero
glyphics, copies of which he presented
to the judges, who, with au expression
of owl-like wisdom, carefully exam
ined them. al. Bertillou leaned over
their table, trymg to explain his mysti
fyiug diagrams, which were afterward
passed to Labori aud Demauge, who,
however, apparently did not derive
much profit irom their perusal.
JJreyins gazed at the scene with a
looK ot stupoiactiou.
The clearest utterance of M. Bertillon
during the course of his demonstration
was thac the handwriting of the border
eau "obeys a geometrical rhythm of
which 1 discovered tho equation in the
prisoner's blotting pad." The witness
finally announced that ho would give a
practical demonstration of the writing
of tho bordereau, according to his sys
tem. Later he began copying the bor
dereau. Colonel Jouaust remarked that it was
not necessary to copy the whole border
eau and that a few liues would suffice.
A few minutes later M. Bertillou
arose, strode to the jndge's staud and
laid before them his copy. The judges,
counsel, the government commissary,
Major Uarriere, and the clerk of the
conrt clustered around in one group,
eager to bee the result. The audience
watched this strange spectacle until
Colonel Jouaust shrugged his shoulders,
and then the spectators knew that M.
Bertillou had failed to satisfy them.
M. Bertillou noticed this and said
"1 was too badly placed."
Maitro Demauge, of counsel for the
defense, returned to counsel's table, aud
in response to a look of inquiry from
Dreyfus, whisperod a fow words to tho
prisoner with a shrug of his shoulders
and a smile on his lace. Dreyfus ap-

Colonel Jouaust then adjourned the
To the newspaper men who crowded
around Maitre labori, asking him for
his impressions, counsel said there was
a certain resemblance to the bordereau,
"But that is all. M. Bertillou only
did what dozens could do. It only
proves he is a clever forger. That is
