Mr. Wm. F. Luke, one of our well
known townsmen, one thoroughly Inter?

the fact that a monument stood there
to the memory of our dead heroes, was
not generally known, and as there were

ALL AMERICANS WIN.
The "Ding Bats" Lose By the Score
of 14 to 3.
Another large crowd vent out to see
the Ding Bats and All Americans play
ball yesterday afternoon. For the first
two Innings the usual lively interest
was manifested and- the encouraging
Ding Bat song, "Oh, Come and Will
You Go" was heard above the din of
the rooters' voices. But it was all over
In the third. The All Americans
on Hampton's delivery for hit after hit
and coupled with a wild throw and an
error seven runners crossed the plate.
Pearson, who pitched for the All
Americans, was a whole team by hlm
self. The Dings could not hit him out
Of the diamond. His speed was terrific
and his control good. The Dings man?
aged to get two runners across the
plate In the third on a base on balls, a
sacrifice, a hit and a passed ball. The
All Americans scored live more In the
fifth, making a total of fourteen runs.
Neither side scored In the sixth.
The seventh Inning saw the end of
the game, the Dings having scored one
more run. There was one out, a man
on third and one on first. Turlington
hit to right field. Mr. Van Patton, the
umpire, said it was a foul ball. Capt.
Russ, of the Ding Bats, differed with
him and refused to allow his men to
continue the game. After a wait of five
minutes the game was given to the All
Americans, 9 to 0.

HISTORY OF 1 DREYFUS CfiSE
(Continued from Eighth Page.)
him. He used to say to his Jailor, who
Paty de Clam who was allowed to en?
ter his presence: "What compensa?
tion shall I ask for when my Innocence
has been established? I shall ask fo*
the cross of the Legion of Honor, and
then I will send In my papers. That is
what I have told Major du Paty de
Clam, who has mentioned It In his re?
port to the Minister. He had been un?
able to find a single proof against me,
for there can be no proofs against me."
It Is very well known that the trial
was conducted In absolute secrecy. Not
even the prisoner was permitted to
know what evidence there was against
him. Finally, on December 22, 1S94, the
court reached a conclusion, the prisoner
still uninformed of the character of the
testimony submitted to prove his guilt.
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT.
Col. Maurel holds a paper in his
hand from which ho reads judgment
as follows, in a short, commanding
voice:
"In the name of the French people,
the first court martial of the military
government of Paris was assembled
this day, December 22, 1894, deliberating
with closed doors.
"The President placed the following
question before the court: 'M?ns, Drey?
fus. Alfred, Captain In the Fourteenth
Regiment of Artillery, staglary of the
st?T corps, attached to the ministry of
wnr, Is ho guilty of having In 1S94 pro?
cured for a foreign pewer a certain
number of secret documents concern?
ing the national defence, and of having
in consequence practiced machinations
or of having entertained Intelligences
with this power or Its agents, to en?
gage it to commit acts of hostility or
to undertake warfare against France,
or of having procured it the means to
do so?"
"Tho votes of the court having been
taken separately, beginning with the
lowest rank, and the colonel presiding
having given it his opinion last, the
answer was unanimously, 'Yes, the
prisoner Is guilty.' "
"In consequence," continued Col.
Maurel, "and unanimously the court
martial condemns the man called Al?
fred Dreyfus to transportation for life
to the fortified enclosure, and condemns
him to military degradation."
The same evening Dreyfus, on the
advice of his counsel, signed an appeal
to the court of revision that his convic?
tion should be quashed on the ground
of Informality and that a new trial
should be ordered. The court refused
the appeal, and found that the first
tri?! had been conducted with all the
formalities Imposed by the law. Drey?
fus was accordingly convicted and sen?
tenced without any further appeal be?
ing possible.
PROTESTS INNOCENCE.
Shortly before the sitting of the court
of revision Dreyfus was visited In his
cell by Major Du Paty do Clam, who
asked him If he was at last ready to
confess his guilt.
"I am innocent." said Dreyfus; I
have nothing to confess."
"May you not have acted Imprudent?
ly?" said the commander. "Did you
not, perhaps, do something with a view i
to Involve some foreign agent?"
"I do not know any agents," replied
Dreyfus. "I have neither had any such
relationship. I wished to involve no?
body. I am innocent of the crime
brought against me."
"Then," said M. Du Paty de Clam,
"tf what you sny is true, you are the
greatest martyr of the century."
After the Major's departure Dreyfus
wrote the following letter to the Min?
ister of War:
"Monsler le Mlnistrc?I have received,
by your' orders, a visit from Major Du
Paty de Clnm, to whom I once more de?
clared that I am Innocent and that I
have never even committed the slight?
est act of Impudence.
"I am convicted and sentenced. I
have no pardon to ask for, but in.the
name of my honor, which, I hope, will
one day be restored to me. It is my
duty to beg of you to be so good as to
continue your Investigations.
"Let the search bo continued after I
have gone. That la the only mercy I
pray for. ALFRED DREYFUS."
THE DEGRADATION.
On the morning of January 4th Al?
fred Dreyfus was told to put on, in?
stead of the civilian clothes which he
had been wearing in his coll, a cap?
tain's full uniform, which had been
specially prepared for the occasion.
The lace on the cap, the red seams on
the troweers, the buttons and trim
: mlngs on the tunic had been unfasten?
ed and stitched on again, 6trongly
I enough to keep in place, and yet so
I loosely that they could easily be torn
off. A sword was handed him in its
scabbard and he was bidden to buckle
It round his waist. This sword had
been filed on each side about half way
down the blade. At S o'clock Dreyfus
was carried under guard into the
square, where, in the presence of the
assembled troops, ho was to be de?
graded. A few minutes later Gen. Dar
ras, rising in his stirrups nnd waving
his sword aloft, thus addressed the
prisoner: "Dreyfus, Alfred, you are un?
worthy to carry arms. In the name of
the French people we degrade you."
As these words, spoken with ineffable
contempt, thunder forth, the gigantic
adjutant, by whose side the prisoner. I
seen from the avenue without, shows |
but as a pigmy, strides up and lays hla
hands roughly upon him. First, he
tears the triple band from off the cap?
tain's cap and flings it to the ground
with gesture of disgust nnd contempt.
His motions are brusque, violent and
Jorkey. Then he tears tho buttons from
the coat, the gold lace from collar and
sleeves, and strips the trousers of then
red adornments. Here Dreyfus throws
up his arm and cries In a voice that U
heard all over the square and far be?
yond its limits: "You are degrading an
innocent man! Viva la France!" An
immense cry from the people without
answer to his frantic protestations:
"Death! Death! To Satory with the
traitor! Down with tho Jews!" His
belt Is next torn from him, and the In?
nocent ?word la wrenched from Its
scabbard. The executioner selze.?? It in
both hands and across his bended knee
snaps the steel. The broken sword Is
flung down and stamped upon, and
then, upon the heap of nameleGs Utter
which was once a soldier's pride, the
belt and empty 6cabbard are tossed
I contemptuously. The artillerymen step
up, and under this escort Dreyfus, la?
mentable, grotesque In his defaced ac?
coutrement, Is marched round so that
each soldier may raise his hanging head
and see how a traitor shows.
Yet during the terrible penance of
this march of Infamy, despite tho in?
sults leveled at him by many of those
before whom ho passed, in spite of the
frantic menaces of the exasperated
mob without, Dreyfus never once loses
his calmness. With a courage that bor?
dered on heroism ho mnrched, firm and
erect, with his head high up, and more
than once he is heard to cry, In a loud
nnd steady voice: "Vive la France! I
swear that I am Innocent!" As he pass?
es before the nssembled press men he
cries: "In the face of all France I
-swfai? that I am Innocent!*' A reserve
officer who is standing by answers with
a "Judas, traitor, dirty Jew!" Now he
reaches the prison van. Here the gen?
darmes gather roughly round. The click
of the handcuffs Is heard and it is seen
that a human form is bundled with
every gesture of disgust and loathing,
Into the infamous cart. The escort
forms round It, nnd the prison van
drives off. The drums roll, the band
strikes up a merry, soul-inspiring
march.
Following came the transportation to
Devil's Island, the terrible tortures
suffered there by the prisoner, tho un
creaslng labors of the faithful wife to
clear the nn.me of her husband, the sen?
sational accusations by Emile Zola, and
finally the decision of the Court of Cas?
sation granting the new trial

BERKLEY.
Messrs. G. C. Deitrlck & Co., of Phil?
adelphia, have now about 100 men, and
next week " will have 250 In the con?
struction of the Fidelity International
Company's plant on the Berkley side.
Foundations have been laid for the two
3-story brick mills, as 'well as tho seed
warehouses, and next week foundations
'will have been laid for engine, boiler
and all other necessary buildings, and
all the properties will be of massive di?
mensions . not equalled by any other
mill In the South. The entire plant will
be run by electricity developed by TOO,
horse-power. In addition to producing
fibre and cotton seed oil, there will also
be manufactured linseed and peanut
oil, and a rettnery will be Installed to
refine the several oils produced. The
oil mill is expected to be In operation
about November 1st, when It will en?
gage about 100 hands, and the fibre
plant will start about December 1st,
with 200 hands. The company la ar?
ranging to start another industry In
connection with these plants, and alto?
gether will make an outlay of a quar?
ter million dollars. The general mana?
ger of the company is Mr. J. S. Coch?
ran, with head olllces at Philadelphia,
and the directory Is composed of the
strongest financial men of that city.
Mr. J. J. McNally Is manager of the
Norfolk mills. Mr. E. A. Weimer be?
ing superintendent of the oil mills. No
superintendent has yet been appointed
for the fibre plant. This company has a
capital of 53.000.000, and with the facil?
ities the Norfolk milt has It can pay
a higher price for seed than any other
oil mill la the country, and It behooves
all planters to secure prices from them
before selling elsewhere.
At the Inclplcncy of this enterprise,
the company secured 14 acres of land on
the water front near the Norfolk and
Western bridge on tho Berkley side.
This location gives them fine deep wa?
ter facilities, as well aa convenience In
handling overland freight.
