Fifty eight of the total of four hun
dred papern which compose the dossier
nre finished yesterday Dreyfus Is
Winning the strain of the rigid ex
amination He ha -a haunting
fear that some jKiInt will escape him
and that he may InnOVf rtnntly do
oiui tlilng which will lead to a new
conviction flrneral Chanolne wa

The court will flnlb with him to

The next public session will prob

Mnltre Labor one pf Dreyfus
lawyers talks with remarkable free
dom on the attitude of the judges
Do you feel quite sure of victory
this lime
Vrs entirely bs said conflilrndy
The Judges -are sntlrrly assured of
Dreyfus Innocence Only old Col
Jauausl seems seems shall I aay
afraid lest he appear prejudiced
Bo he appears unnecessarily hamh

Do you think the general opinion
Is that Dreyfus is too vehement
Put yourelf In his place an
snereil Latiotl wlth feeling Nat
urally he I anxious to Impress hit
Judges This7 Wretched Joke has
alrrAdy lasted too long
How long will tbe trial last do

years ago will not require more than

A soon as they exhibit the docu
mints wr will puncture their famous
Merit dossier and It will be shown
that there I nothing In it
The general Impression is that both
fnriirre And Jouaust made a liad
debut Even the antl Dreyfusltrs
are dissatisfied They art heard on
all sldts saying that it Is a trick of
the government puting such n ridic
ulous person a Carriers in charge of
