IS NOW A MAJOR IN A CRACK REGIMENT IN THE ARMY OF FRANCE 1996 Fifteen yearn ago today Papt. Alfred Dreyfus was convicted by court-mar tlal for the second time on the charge of selling French military secrets to foreign powers It was one of the most sensational trials of the age. dur ing w hich it w as alleged vliat the peace of Europe was threatened through the "Dreyfus affair." The verdict brought vigorous protests from the entire civ ilized world, which was convinced of the captain's Innocence. Arrested five years before, he had been convicted by his superior ofhcers at a court-mat - tlal, degraded before army comrades, transported to Devil's island to ex piate the alleged crime, and had been, through the efforts of influential friends, brought back to France for a retrial The eyes of the world were turned upon the court at Hennes. where the Semetic army officer, the first Hebrew ever to have entered the stafT of the French army, was buttling for his honor. Four hundred Journal ists. from the four corners of the earth, rubbed elbows with society women, some of whom had paid as much as 9400 for a seat. Sensation followed sensation during the trial; hut none was more startling than that testimony given by General Mer cier. the former minister of war. He averred that, during the Dreyfus af1, fair, the German ambassador at Par's had delivered an imperative demand that certain paperR. alleged to have been Rtolen from the German embassy, be returned to Germany. "From eight O'clock.” said the general, while the atidience hung breathless on his reve lation of a crisis In the destiny of France, “until after midnight the pres | blent of the republic, the prime min ister i.nd I waited to know whether war or peace would be the outcome of the negotiations We were within a hair’s breadth of war." Suicide and degradation of Dreyfus' accusers fol* I lowed his acquittal. 1914 • Today Dreyfus is not only a free man. but he has been restored to the French army with great public cere mony. A captain when degraded. h« is now a major in a crack artillery regiment that usually is detailed to all state functions. Suffering the great est of humiliations for a soldier fer 12 years, ho today is fully cleared of 'treason and has been honored with the distinction of a commander of the Legion of Honor. His champions dur ing his time of trouble have likewise been honored. Zola, the great French author, who suffered imprisonment for his fiery defense of Dreyfus, is now dead, but the republic honored his memory by placing his body in the Pantheon, the burial place of the great soldiers of France Picnuart. a brother officer, then with the runk of colonel, who was cashiered from the army for defending Dreyfus, was re stored with all honors and promoted i to the rank of brigadier general. Drey* 1 fus’ enemies have been coufounded ' Colonel Henry, formerly connected with the war office, is dead by his own hand, after having confessed to forg ing Dreyfus' name to a document that . helped to send him to Devil's island Major Ksterhazy had publicly con teased through the lxmdon Chronicle that he wrote the bordereau, the fa mouH document which, more than any thing else, brought about the convic tion for treason against Dreyfus Ks terhazy is now an exile from France, though not subject to official punish ment through a recent amueaty law I which pardons all offenders against the stute up to the year 1911. Today the war with Germany has come about, hut not through the machina tions of the Dreyfus affair. Dreyfus' son is fighting tor France on the firing lino and was recently promoted for gallantry in battle to the rank of Her geant ILL STREET DEAD War Killed Business in That Fa mous Thoroughfare. — Brokerage Flrma Are Idle and Moat of Them Have Been Compelled to Discharge Many Employes. (International News Service.) New York.—The European war lias i played havoc in Wall etreet. That “crooked thoroughfare, with a river ut one end and a cemetery at the other" 1b only a wraith of ItH former Belf. While It would be an exaggeration to say that graBH Ih growing in Wall street, there has been a great differ ence in the place wince the Htock ex change cloned. People still pass frequently along Hroad and W'all streets, a few men stand idly In the open space at Hroad Etreet and Exchange place, and the cabbies still drowse on the stand be fore the stock exchange, out all is not as it once was. There Is a lack of excitement, of bustle and business about the street that never was known there In the j days of prosperity before the war cauie. Not even In he days of 1!»07 was there Huch stagnation there. No body seems to be In a hurry. There is no shouting and gesticulation from windows, giving quotations and orders to waiting brokers In the street. One receives the distinct Impression that the sidewalk pedestrians are walking to kill time. Hecause of the war In Europe, which paralyzed the markets of the world, hundreds of rnen end women in Wall street, book-makers, clerks and ste nographers, nre out of employment, watching their small savings dwindle. The brokers declare that they are no better oft than the employes they have discharged "How could we help ourselves?" demanded one broker. I "We did not wish to turn off men and women we had trusted. In some cases, for years. Hut what recourse have we? My firm Is a smnll one. yet with the help reduced to a minimum and my partners and I doing m*st of the ■ book-keeping, the office expenses are 1IWJ, m unj, T» nil iiu it**w riUKincH* or any sort that means our net loss Is 1100 a day, or $3,000 a month Resides that, I have the interest, to pay on my seat on the stock exchange I bought mine when business was good and paid $74,000 for It. All this counts up I am living on my savings None the brokers In the street are any better off than I am. and many of them are In much worse plight.” Different Arms have pursued differ ent policies In dealing with the unique situation presented by the shutting off of the speculaMve trade Some, which feel sufficiently prosperous, have re talned all their help Hut In the rna Jorlty of cases th« re ha* been at lear. a partial reduction of the staffs. The newer employes were given a week's or two weeks’ salary and «fl*mls*rd with the promise they would be glv* n first chance st their old positions when business was resumed Again, some Arms expect their em ployes to report at the offices every morting as If business were going on, while a few of the Arms are paying their employes full salary hut telling them to stay away from the wffices and get the oeneAt of a real vacation The same state of affairs prevails •ow more or less In the shipping trade. With Httle or no steamship traffic and importation at a standstill, there Is ■■thing shipping employes can do. HAZING OF LOUVAIN American Girl Tells of Seeing the City Destroyed.
