There was not much talk abuut the
cilice of senior vice commander-in-chief,
the canvass for that offico being
rather quiet and it is not known who
will get tho place. M. Aliutonof Ken

The contest among the cities for the

narrowed down to Chicago and Salt

that Chicago will be the winner.
The committee on pensions of the na

completed the report, around which the
debate of the sessions is likely to center.
It is said tnat, while the committee will
suggest certain changes in the laws

The visit of tho president to the squad

spectacle ever seen here. It was the
intention to have Mr. McKinley visit
only the New York, but he grew so en
thusiastic over tho great fighters that
he suddenly made up his mind to in
spect all of them. Accordingly he vis
ited the flagship New York, cruiser
Brooklyn aud tho battleships Indiana,
Massachusetts and Texas. It was his
intention to also visit the cruiser De
troit, but much to his regret he was un
able to do so on account of lack of time.
There was almost a continuous roar of
guns during tho one and three-quarter
hours that it took to inspect the vessels.
Iu all, 462 guns were fired by the squad

The return of the president to the
bhore was au inspiring one. The Texas
was moored furthest up the river, and
tho presidential party had to pass each
of the great vessels on its return to

crowded to their utmost capacity and a
great noise was being made. As the
barge neared the flagship the signal
was given to salnte, and six big ships
belched forth a terrific salute. Every
man and officer on the ships stood at

by playinK "llail to the Chief." Tho
barge was stopped while the salute was
being fired, and after itrhad ceased the

To the Citizens of Akron.
Akron's Free Carnival and Street Fair, in magnitude ami
magnificence never before approached by any similar project,
will be celebrated in our City on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
and Saturday, September 13, 11, 15 and 16.
That it will be a great and unprecedented h-ieccsis no longer
a question, and for the assistance and unselfish disinterestedne-s
with which the great mass of our citizens have helped those
charged with the details of the work your committee returns
sincere thanks. At first, not realizing the magnitude and un
selfish purpose of the project, there were homo who were inclined
to regard the undertaking askance, but now those who are refus
ing their assistance to bring it to a successful termination, mak
ing it, in every way, a credit and honor to our most progressive,
pushing and enterprising city, are few and far between, and
their number is decreasing daily.
Inasmuch as the project will be in fact what its name im
plies a Free Carnival and Street Fair, the working committees
have had to depend almost wholly and exclusively on voluntary
subscriptions to defray the expenses which necessarily had to be
incurred. There will be no revenue of any sort taxed upon our
visitors that will benefit the management, or any person what
soever directly. The indirect benefit, however, which will be
derived by every citizen in various ways, because of the influx
of thousands of strangers within our gates during tho few days
of exhibitions and entertainments will be great. .
The funds necessary to defray the expenses are nearly all
raised. A small amount, however, yet remains to be secured.
Your committee's solicitors are still at work to obtain thU bal
ance, and if you have not yet performed your duty in making a
donation, large or small, as your circumstances and the benefits
you will derive will permit, they will be glad to call on you for
the purpose of receiving the same; or, a telephone message to
our secretary, H. L. Syiider, whose oliice is located in the Ever
ett building, will receive prompt attention. If you have been
overlooked in this matter it was entirely unintentional, and the
oversight will be rectified with pleasure.
In conclusion your committee desires to state that this Free
Carnival and Street Fair is an affair OF THE PEOPLE, FOR
THE WHOLE PEOPLE, FOR EVERY CITIZEN OF AKRON.
Nobody in particular will be benefited over others. All will
share alike in the advantages. We bespeak for the project a
continuance and expansion of the good work and good will which
have overcome all obstacles so far, and which will eventually
enable us to give an entertainment that will cause the tongues of
thousands of pleased visitors from all points of the surrounding
country to sing the glories and poises of Akron as a good place
to visit. '.
Let there be no lagging. Additional vim, vigor and hustle
must and shall characterize our efforts for the next two wepks
and the result will redound to the everlasting good name and
fame of Akron.
On the days of the Fair the whole City should appear in holi
day attire ; every house and lawn should be placed in its most
attractive condition; flags and bunting should be displayed.
Invite your friends to come to the City aud witness, free of
charge to them, the performances and attractions on the public
streets of Akron, which have never elsewhere been offered free
and every one of which will be worth the trip to our City. The
daily program has been published so that every ono may
know just when and where the performances and exhibitions
will take place.
For the last time a.ud in behalf of every home of this city, we
ask that your liberality and efforts be put forth to the utmost
to make the event one long to be remembered, and one which
will carry Akron's good name aud fame as a hostess into the
hearts aud homes of thousands in all the nooks ami corners of
this portion of the state.

Re.es-, France, Sent. 5. M. Labori
telegraphed personal appeals to Em
peror William aud Kiug Humbert to
"craut permission to Colonel Schwartz-
kopiion and Colutel Pauizardi, Gen
man and Italian military attaches in
P.iris m 1M4, to come to Reuues to tes
tify iu the trial of Captaiu Dreyfus.
The appeals were couched iu elo
quent terms, invoking the assistance of
their majesties in the name of justice
and humanity. They are quite supple
mentary to the formal application that
will be made by the government com
missary. Major Carriere.
Both Schwartzkoppen and Panizzardi
must consult their respective sovereigns
before starting, but the counsel for
Dreylus tnlly expect theni to arrive
here, if they come at all, in time to give
their testimony on Thursday, iu which
rase the trial -would probably conclude
this week and the verdict be delivered
on Friday or Saturday.
Rcnxes, France, Sept. 6. The judges
in the Dreyfus conrtmaftial deliberated
over thu application of M. Labori for an
oiaer upon the government commissary
to request the French government to
iin ite loreign governments to supply
documents enumerated in the border
eau. It was unanimously decided to
reject the application of M. Labori on
the ground that the courtdid not eou
bider itself competent to pronounce a
judgment which might entail diplo
matic action by the government.
It was alto decided unanimously to
examine M. do Oeruuschi, the Austro
llungariau refugee, today behind closed
Iu view of the reiection by the court
martial of SI. Labori's motion, the de
fense intend to issue subpoenas to
Colonels Schwa rtzkoppon and Paniz
zardi. The subpoenas will be trans
mitted by the court-martial, through the
minister of war, the minister of justice
and the minister ot foreign affairs, suc
cessvely, and thence through the French
ambassadors at Berlin and Rome.
Colonels Schwartzkoprjen and Paniz
zardi can elect whether they shall ap
pear before the courtmartial or make
denositious before magistrates in their
respective countries, in which latter
case the depositions will be transmitted
as evidence to the courtmartial-tlirough
diplomatic channels. This probably
meaus at least weeks of delay.
The examination of the secret espion
age dossier mentioned by Captain Onig
nct (lnriug Monday's sitting of the
courtmartial occupied the greater part
of the secrrt session of the court.
The lirst witness who was called to
the bar was the reporter, Bassett, whom
The Matin teat to Loudon to interview
Major Count Ferdinand Walztu Ester
ha.y. Tin witness acposed that Esters
bay confessed to him that ho wrote the
bordereau under orders from Colonel
Siintlherr, who was then chief of the
secret intelligence bureau. The order,
Estcrhazy said, was to catch the traitor
at the headquarters of the general staff
whom Esterhazy afterward said was
.Major Carriere here burst out with au
extraordinary protest against Major
Esterhazy's insinuation against Colonel
'i protest," ho cried, "iu the name
and memory of Colonel Saudlierr,
against the insinuations introduced
M. Labori, however, ignored this pro
test, which he styled "a ridiculous pre
tention." M. Labori then called upon General
Roxet to testify regarding letters re
ceived from Major Esterhazy since the
opening of this trial.
He replied that he only opened one
letter from Major Esterhazy, which he
forwarded to Colonel Jouaust. General
Rogct added that he had declined to re
ceive other letters.
M. Labori then asked Colonel Jouaust
to have tiie letters read.
Colonel Jouaust at first declined, but
M. Labori insisted so firmly that Colonel
.i mm list, after wrangling a while, gave
way and consented that the letter should
U read later.
General Roget then read the one Es
teruay letter which he admitted hav
ing opened. Iu this letter Major Ester
hazy baid he could not prove the exist
ence of the alleged syndicate organized
m the interest of Dreyfus, ana com-
pi.tiiit.tl that tho general staff had re
fused to give him a fair hearing.
M. Labori then put a series of ques
tions intended to bring out the fact that
the general staff had made use of Major
- storhazy even after he was known to
general Roget said he had not consid
ered Major Esterhazy's avowals to be of
M. Uibori sought to question General
Roget more closely on his statement
that none of the goierals of the general
btaff had any relations with Major Es
terhazy, but Colonel Jouaust declined
to allow inrther discussion. This led to
another scene between tho president of'
the courtmartial aud counsel for the de
fense, M Labori declaring thafGeneral
Roget, who camo here more as public
inoseciitor than as a witness, refnsed to
replv to probing questions.
A little later M. Labori pushed the
question on General Billot on what is
known as the liberating document,
-.vliich, it is alleged, freed Esterhazy.
Gt'itcnil Zurhndeu spoke a fow words
lespeuing tlio general staff's belief iu
t iunenil itoget, m answer to a remark
liv M. Ueinauge, said he thought Ester
i a y innocent of treason.
oeuerul Roget thou delivered n short
discourse in reply to tho statement of
M tie Foutl Lamotte ou Saturday that
the phrase iu the bordereau, "I am
going to the manoeuvers," showed that
Druylus could not be the autnor of the
bordereau. General Roget maintained
that M. Laiuotto was wrong.
Captain Dreyfus arose and iu a clear
voice emphatically insisted that the cir
cular of May 17, 181)4, announcing that
the probationers would not go to the
manoeuvers was written in the clearest
language, which the court would see if
It were road. He seitertited that he had
never asked to go to the manoeuvers,
for he was absolutely convinced that
such a request would uot bo granted.
M. Defies, a reporter for Tho Temps,
testified that ho saw Esterhuzy iu Lon
don, and that the latter confessed that
ho was the uuthor of tho bordereau.
The witness added that he raised the
question of the letters of Madame Bou
lane aud bionght away the impression
that Esterhazy wrote the "Uhlan" let
ter. During tho session of the court
maitial a strong plea for Dreyfus and
nvideuce iu his behalf was given by
Senator Trarieux, ex-minister of jus
tice. Whoa Dreyfus was convicted, tho
witness said, lie was convinced, like
everybody else, of the prisouer's guilt,
but violent diatribes on the fact that
Dreyius was a Jew awakened his sus
picions. He, therefore, consulted M.
ilanotaux (late prime minister of
France), ami Hit; latter informed tho
Witness of the existence of the "Cet'o
Cauaiil s tic D " document, though M
Hauotaux lailttl to iuforiu liini that it
had been imparted to tho judges of tho
first courtmartial unknown to the pris
oner. This fact the witue&a learned
Tranent denounced the secret com
munication of tin: document- as a mou
strous illegality aud a violation of the
most saoietl rights of the defense. The
witness described as impossible the hy
pothesis advauetKt7!)"' M. Teyssouicres
to convince the witness that Dreyfus
was guilty. Thewitness' doubts were
confirmed when he heard that M.
Sclieurer-lvestuer had secured proofs of
the innt.cenee of Dreyfus and'the gnilt
M. Trarieux said lit could" not agree
to a single conclusion reached by Gen
eral Goiise in His correspondence with
Lieutenant Colonel Picquart, ana said
the latter's eemoval from the secret in
telligence department was the result of
underhand plotting by some one op
posed to revision. The witness enum
erated iu support of this statement vari
ous forged documents which, he as
serted, had emanated from, the secret
intelligence deportment. He said ho
assumed the chiefs were decieved.
M. Trarieux poiuted out that if auy
proof wnatsoeyer of the guilt of Drey
fus existed in 16U8 General Gonse would
have shown Lieuteuaut Colonel Picquart
au order to stop the investigation.
After an interview with M. Schenrer
Kestner. tho witness said, he became
convinced of the guilt oi Esterhazy.
M. Tiarieux moutioued an interview
he had with a foreign ambassador, who
declared that Dreyfus never had rela
tions with hiui nor with any military
attache or officer of the army of his
country. M. Trarieux asserted the im
portance of this statement of the ambas
sador, who energetically reaffirmed the
absolute innocence of Dreyfus. The
ambassador added that lie had investi
gated, and found no'thiug to implicate
Further, the ambassador said, he had
seen iu the hands of Colonel Paniz
zardi a letter from Colonel Schwartz
koppen proving the guilt of Esterhazy,
who, his excelleucj' added, generally
communicated information of minor
value. Moreover, at the time of M.
Scheurer-Kestner's revelations Major
Esterhazy called upon Colonel Schwartz
koppen, aud at was then that a dram
atic scene of violent recriminations and
threats occurred. The ambassador also
showed the witness that the "Cette Ca
naille de D " phrase did not apply to
M. Trarieux explained that the am
bassador hatl accorded him pormission
to communicate it to the judicial au
thorities. In a subsequent interview
which.the witness had with the same
ambassador the latter had informed him
that the Henry forgery, which had just
Been discovered, had beeu long known
to his government and that the French
government had been aware of it for a
At oue point ho declared in part:
"It maybe said that I should not ad
duco hero tho evidence of a foreigner.
That is M. Cavigiiao's opinion, and I do
not oppose it, but it has no foundation
either in fact or iu law. The testimony
of foreigners is not disallowed by law.
Ho said Colonel Panizzardi was cited to
appear iu a case of swindling at Ver
sailles, aud a foreign witness had been
examined the day before. Eveu the su
preme head of the army, the gallant
soldier De Galliffet, had uot shrunk
from adducing before the court of cas
sation tho testimony of General Talbot.
With regard to General Roget and
Captain Cuignet, the witness declared
that their allegations that Colonel
Pauizzardi had informed his ambassa
dor that Colonel Schwartzkoppen had
had relations with Dreyfus were abso
lutely unfounded. On the contrary,
the witness asserted. Colonel Paniz
zardi expressly stated that Dreyfus had
no relations with any foreign attache.

THE BLOCKADE OF LUZON.

Wahinotox, Sept. U. The matter of
making an effective blockade in the
Philippines, trud especially around the
island of Lnzon, so as to prevent the in
surcents from obtaining ammunition
and supplies, is one that is giving the
administration considerable concern. It
has not beeu dedmed feasible to pro
claim a blockade, as it would indicate a
state of war :.nd possibly open a way to
the recognition of the incurgents.
Whether or not it is feasible to attack,
subdne and garrison all tho ports of
Lnzou which night serve as ports of
supply lor the Filipinos lias not yet been
The president has been advised that
the navy siiould be utilized.
At ev cry port a naval vessel could be
stationed, and under the military law
of the island every incoming vessel
could be made to exhibit its manifest.
One trouble about carrying out this
plan is the fact that there is not a suffi
cient number ot light draught vessels to
go into all tne places where tne Fili
pinos can receive their supplies.
