Rennes, Sept. 11.—A state of calm pre

quartered in the town and its environs
have left and journalists and others in
terested in the trial have departed since
Sunday. The cafes, which for the last
few weeks have been thronged with ex
cited crowds, are deserted. This after
noon a solitary gendarme paced up and
down before the military prison, and
there was not a policeman or soldier near

Verdict Most Unpopular.
Washington, Sept. 11.—The Dreyfus
verdict is attracting much attention
throughout official quarters, hut natural
ly those in responsible positions whose
opinions would be valuable are reluctant
to express adverse comment because of
the national aspect of the case. The feel
ing is general, however, in favor of Drey
fus and a strong sentiment has developed
against the injustice, which, according to
prevailing belief, he has been subjected
to. Some officials express a fear that this
sentiment will have a serious effect on
the Franco-American treaty when it
comes before the senate, as that instru
ment has not proved very popular and
the present feeling may turn the tide
against it.

Plans Of Gen. Otis.
New York. Sept. 11.—A special to the
Herald from Washington says: Consid
erable progress has been made by Major
General Otis upon the plan of campaign
he will inaugurate immediately upon the
beginning of the dry season. To prevent
similar preparations being made by the

insurgents, and perhaps a forerunner to
the comprehensive operations to occ ur
when the conditions permit, an offensive
movement by the commands of Major
Generals MacArthur and Lawton will be
gin at once. It had been expected that
this movement would have begun last
week, but evidently either the prepara
tions have not been completed or the ele
ments have prevented, for up to this
time so far as the department has been
advised, nothing has been done. The
officials are in hourly expectation, how
ever, of advices showing that the columns
under command of the officers named
have begun a new campaign against
Aguinaldo's troops.
General Otis proposes to divide the
army of 64,649 combatants and the moun- j
tain batteries and dynamite guns which
ho will have in December into two divi- r
sions, commanded by MacArthur and
Lawton, one of these wiii operate to the !
north of Manila and the other to the west '
and south. Each division will operate in j
two military provinces to be defined by '
General Otis, but there will be effective
and prompt co-operation when it is desir
able. It is expected that each commander
will have six brigades under his com
mand, the remainder of the troops being
employed to garrison Manila and other
seaport towns through which the insur
gents are receiving supplies.
The navy and marine corps will be
doing effective work. It is understood to
be the intention of the administration to
enforce a blockade of the Philippine
ports. Tliis action has been considered
upon recommendation of Rear Admiral
Watson, who lias called attention to the
amount of supplies which the insurgents
have been receiving. The blockade,
W'hieh will be enforced, will be municipal
in character, so as to prevent any of the
foreign nations seizing upon the block
ade if it were formally declared as a pre- j
i text for the recognition of the Philippines
lie expects there will be more than 700
I men under Colonel Pope's command
within the next few months.
There have been consulations between
Rear Admiral Watson and General Otis ,
respecting the operations to be conducted )
by the marines, and it is understood here
that they will be given the province of
Cavite in which to operate. Cavite is the
hot-bed of insurrectionists, and the work
of the marines will have to be supple
mented by the army, but the use of Col
onel Pope's command will make possi
ble the concentration of practically the
entire military force in subjugating
It is apparent from the plan of cam
paign prepared by General Otis that his
duty will be more of a supervisory and
1 supplying character than anything else.
I He will remain at Manila, sending sup
plies and troops to the front and keeping
the two divisions in the best possible con
dition. Of course General Otis will be
charged with the responsibility, but it
is evident that tlie administration is quite
satisfied to trust the conduct of the field
operations to Generals MacArthur and
The Mauser Pistol.
Kansas City, Mo., Sept. 11.—Dr. J. D.
Griffith of this city has just copleted
for the government a test of the Mauser
pistol in use by German cavalry and
under consideration for adoption by the
United States. The test was made not
only with targets, but with animals, and
Griffith of this city has just completed
150 to 500 yards the Mauser pistol is the
most deadly weapon of its kind ever in
vented, and that up to the maximum
range tried it is practically as good in
the hands of marksmen as a Krag-Jor
gensen, a Lee or Mauser rifle. The pistol
fires 10 shots without reloading and can
be emptied with accuracy of aim in less
than three seconds. The cartridges are
30 caliber and are propelled by smokeless
nitro powder. The bullets weigh 85
grams each and have a lead core sur
rounded by a nickel-plated copper jacket.
It is said to he probable that'as a result
of Dr. Griffith's tests the government will
adopt the Mauser pistol.
A Vigorous Campaign.
Chicago, Sept. 11.—Captain J. J. Case,
formerly of the Second Oregon volun
teers and a member of the staffs of Gen
erals Merritt, Otis and Lawton, who is
visiting litre, says that he thinks a vigor
ous fail campaign will put an end to the
war in the Philippines.
"It takes a good deal to demoralize a
Filipino army and it would be a rash
statement to declare that the insurgents
are now demoralized, but it Is certain
that they run earlier in battle than was

formerly the case. It is the general opin
ion of the officers that if General Otis
were to confine himself to one depart
ment the war would progress more satis
factorily. General Otis makes a first
class civil governor. In the field there
are several instances where he recalled
the troops after accomplishing their
work. I think all the casualties are
faiihfully reported by General Otis.''

Brigus, N. F.. Sept. 11.—The Peary
Harnisworth steamer Windward, Capt.
.lohn Bartlett, from Etah, north Green
land, August 26, has arrived here, report
ing all well on board. She will be fol
lowed In a week by the Peary Arctic
club's steamer, Dianali, Capt. Samuel W.
Bartlett, also from Etah. The Windward
reports that all on board the Dianali were
well „at the time the vessels separated.
The two steamers met at Etah on August
12, and worked in company under the per
sonal direction of Lieutenant Peary in
r~ "»
«fiuipinent foi next spiings campaign.
The Windward was ice-bound in Allman
bay on the west side of Kane basin, about
50 miles north of Cape Sabine, from Aug
1899, being in a
ust to August -
sort of eddy undisturbed by wind or cur
rent. The season was one of continuous
calm, with very little snow, the minimum
temperature at the ship being 70 degrees
below zero.
Lieutenant Peary and the sledge par
ties were in the field almost continuously
from October, 1898, to August of this year,
and have effected an extraordinary
amount of Important work, not only bear
ing on the future of his own expedition,
but adding much to the geoghaphic-al
knowledge of the coast line and the inter
ior of Ellesmereland, the southern por
tion of Grinnelland. His sleding journey
aggregated more than 1,000 miles, not in
cluding several trips repeated over por
tions of the track.
As soon as the young ice could bear a
-.ledge Lieutenant Peary made a, careful
reeonnoisanee of the coast line southwest
of Allman and Cape Sabine. This work
completed, Lieutenant Peary next made
several successful hunting trips and laid
in an ample supply of fresh meat, includ
ing musk oxen, seals and birds for the
Winter. Utilizing the December moon he
sledged along the ice for 250 miles north,
over almost impassable ice to Fort Con
g fTi the headquarters of the Greely expe
fje had the misfortune to have both
f t . e t frost bitten, which necessitated six
weeks delay and confinement until he
could make the return trip,
Tied to a
.ledge he was hauled all the way to the
Windward, where several toes were am
putated. Complete recovery followed
rapidly, and he now walks as well as
Lieutenant Peary found Fort Conger
exactly as Greely left it. The table was
standing from the last meal, and all the
other appointments had remained undis
turbed for 16 years. The buildings were
in fair condition. He took possession of
the property, real and personal, in the
name of the United States government,
and posted notices to that effect. He
brought away and is sending home the
original Greely records, the sextant of
Lieutenant Beaumont, R. N., of the
Hares Markham expedition of 1876-8, re
covered by Lieutenant Lockwood, and
many private letters and papers of mem
bers of the Greely party, all of which arc
to be forwarded to the Peary Arctic club
of New York. A considerable quantity of
provisions were also found protected for
further emergency.
He also pushed a reeonnoisanee beyond
Fort Conger to Cape Barry, finding prac
tically the same conditions of ice and s<-a
as south of the former point. Subse
quently he made a second trip to Fort
and in all four parties from th
Windward at that point, and returned
without other accident than that of Lieu
tenant Peary himself as a result of the
winter work. Four tons of provisions,
two at Conger and the other distributed
pftween Cape Sabine, Durville, Louis
Napoleon, Frazer and other points not
nlor( . than 50 miles apart have been de
posited, and both natives and whites on
g- a g P( ] | n the work have been made so
familiar with the route and caches that
all risk to life and limb along this path is
practically ended. A bout is also cached
at Cape Louis Napoleon.
I Lieutenant Peary's sledge journey was
an overland exploration westward from
I the winter quarters of the Windward,
completely crosing Ellesmereland and
connecting his work with that of Lieu
tenant Lockwood of the Greely expedi
tion at tlie fiord hearing the latter's name
on the slope. Ellesmereland was found
practically ice free and to contain much
' game. The water to the west as far as
could he seen was apparently clear of ice.
1 His winter headquarters Lieutenant
Peary has established at Etah. otie of
i th" eligible points on the east side of
Smith sound. It is a mile or so north of
Hayes' winter quarters in 1861, five miles
' south of Lifeboat cove, ill which the Po
• laris wintered, and six miles north of
1 Cape Alexander. Ample supplies for the
remainder of the time of the expedition,
not less than 50 tons have been landed, 40
tons of which went by the Peary Arctic
dub's steamer Dianali. The sloop yacht
p " nta ,, u . Kift of Benjamin Hoppin of
■ ßaddock, C. B., to Lieutenant Peary, is
j anchored in the bay, hut will be hauled
up before winter sets in. He has built a
commodious living and working room for
. himself and his company, in which they
I will be thoroughly comfortable during
the winter, and he has nearly 75 walrus
for native and dog commissary when the
field is taken in February. The winter
will be spent in rest and working up the
results of last year. In February a re
union of natives will be held, when the
dog teams for the northern trip will ho
selected. The picked natives of the Wind
ward will remain with Lieutenant Peary
during the winter.
The Peary Arctic club expedition, in
command of Herbert L. Bridgeman, sec
retary of the club, was at Etah on August
21. AH were well and expected to leave
for home on August 24. The Stein party
