The ru? mor that Maltrc uaborl would re-ap-j pear to-day PI ivcd untrue.

The Colonel ant alone until M. Bertulus, the examining magistrate; whoso evidence ?was so favorable t.? Dreyfus, entered and aat beside Plcciuart, warmly shak ing him by the hand. HOSTILE TO DRIdYFUS. All of the witnesses to-day were hos? tile to Dreyfua, but as none of the ev? idente wao fresh, but mostly a reitera? tion uf the old statemento, the au? dience followed tiie depositions with comparatively little interest, a re? ference by M. Gribelin tu the relations of Dreyfus with Deml-mondalnes proy ing the only risque portion of the morn? ing's proceedings. A subdued titter went round the court-room when M. Gribelin even proteased to know the exact amount Dreyfus apont upon his various amours. MADE POOR IMPRESSION. M. Gribelin gave his testimony with an honest deinen nor and apparently sincerity, but be (Md not strike .any one us being particularly intelligent Nothing in his nppeariince would con? tradict Hie contention of the Drcyfus grds that he was Major Lntlth'S tool ia the machinations of the general stnfl ngains!

Mnttro Dornango, uf counsel for the defense, was more successful lhan usual in cross examining him. nnd vls ibiy disconcerted .M. Gribelin. Counsel scored a distinct lilt whi n he got M Gribelin to ndm.it that he mixed the Intrigues uf Pnty de Clam and Henry to shield Esterhnzy, ami when M. Gri? belin was finally disposed of his , vi dence had Buffered badly. THE .ll'D' SES. Droyfus created a better impression to-duy. He entered the court-room with a more confident bearing ami re? plied to the witnesses in a calm voice without any theatrical vestures, ami his remarks were put so lucidly that he appeared to make an Impression mi the judges, all <>f whom were reputed to be bitterly opposed to him. COD. JOUAUST'S Ml STA UK. The session wound up with a scene, an account of extraordinary conduct of Colonel Jounust, president of the court, who permitted himself t., make an un? warrantable display of partlullty. M. Bcrtulus had been confronted with the last witness. Captain Junck, ami Gen? eral Gonse had defended the latter, when colonel Plcquart wns asked hi allowed t,> refute some of Junck's re? marks, colonel Jouaust mad,. .1 ges? ture of Impatience and shouted: "What, again?" BOOED AND HISSED. An outburst of booing and hissing came from the audience at such a dla play of unfairness from the President. Judges nnd gendarmes quickly rmp pref.sed the n'iise, but Colonel Jounust understood the well-merited rebuke ad? ministered him; turned red and ad? journed the court ten minutes later. THE EVIDENCE. F'ollow in? is the evidence in detail: General Fahre, former Chief of the Fourth Hu renn of -.he General Staff, was the first witness to-day. He said that in hia official capacity he com? pared the handw riting of the bordi . hi With the vat ions officers in his bureau, Including the handwriting of a proba? tioner, who had been in the bureau dur? ing the previous year, and who had not favorably Impressed his comrades. HAI?.? ON DREYFUS. This probationer. Dreyfus, who was regarded as untrustworthy, lyas, a - cording to tin- wltnesa, equally disliked by his comrades and superiors, was. Fahre added, constantly endeavoring by all forts of means to learn the se? crets of the plan of coneentrnilo/t of the Eastern railway system. II - official duties, witness said, placed it in Dreyfus' p ?wer to discloec the docu? ments referred to in the bordereau. When Major Benin showed witness the bordereau the latter was atruck with the resemblance at th? aiiimiiDhif. General Fahre. In conclusion, ddclared h<' was still as firmly convinced as In is:ii. that the prisoner was the author of the bordereau. (Sensation). THE PRISONER'S REPLY. After M. Demange had pointed out the discrepancies In Fabrc's present statements and those voiced In 1894, Colonel Jouausl Invited Dreyfus to re? ply. Tin- prisoner said General Fabrc ?nute correctly described the work on which he was engaged when a prob i tioncr, especially emphasizing that he had to keep dossier relating to the con? centration centres on the Eastern sys? tem posted Up. Thin was not a llcti ttpus task. The prisoner's reply was made in calm, measured tones, nnd his frankness seemed to favorubly impress the judges. A DETECTIVE APPEARS. Colonel d'Abovlllo, former deputy chief of tlie Fourth Bureau, testllled briefly <>n the likeness ?>f Dreyfus' handwriting to tin- bordereau. Greater interest in the prO<.dint; was muhlfested when tin- name of tic next witness was announced, Former ?'hi. f of tlie Detective Department Co chefert, who was present when Drey? fus underwent tin- dictation test in Du Paty de Clam's ofllcc. M. Cocheferi declared lie knew- uhso lutely nothing of tlie Dreyfus case when the .Minister of War. General Mercier, summoned him to confer with him on the subject of the bordi renu nnd the suspicions in regard to Drey? fus. A It REST < >F 1 >REYFUS. Subsequently, after M. Uertlllon's report, the arrest of Dreyfus was de? cided upon. The witness proceeded to describe the- arrest and tlie famous scene of the dictation test, saying that from the first remark, dropped by Paty de Clam, tin- prisoner displayed evident uneasi? ness. At ti:e time of the examination of Dreyfus witness gained tlie impres? sion Hi.il he might be guilty and so re? ported when tlie Minister of War asked his opinion. During this formal examination Co? cheferi nddccl. Dreyfus protested his Innocence very violently and declared lie did not know what they wanted or of what he was accused. Replying to the court, Cochcfort said Hint sine.- pis first appearance on the scene he had had nothing to do with the Dreyfus affair. AWAITS Du PATY de CLAM. After the remarks of M. Domnngc, Colonel Jouausl invited Dreyfus to speak. The prisoner replied: "No; I will reply when Paty de Clam is here," M. Ollbetln, the principal archivist of the headquarters staff, was tlie next. He icstillednylth (treat volubility. M.
