by the other members of the court,

silence fell upon the audience, who up
to then had been engaged in a buzz of

Col. Jouaust and his colleagues were
in full parade uniform, with aigrettes
in the front of theih peaked shados.
Col. Jouaust's aigrette was white, th'i

An interesting figure, seated behind

Then Drevfus, wearing: eye-glasses,

Dreyfus replied with a vehement j
uechirat inn of his innocence, repeat
ing several times: .
'I am innocent," in a voice which j
quavered with emotion. The agonized I
manner in which he uttered his pro- j
testing innocence had a most painfui i
effect, and evoked the sympathy of his j
most inveterate enemies. I
The prisoner grew more composed ;
as the examination proceeded, an- :
swering every question without a mo-

The Filipinos use their old argu
ment that they had conquered the
sovereignty of these islands from
Spain be foil the idgmng cf the treaty
of i'aris ai:d. 1 hercl'i:: c, Spain was in
no position to cede them to the I r.it-
cd States. They argue that the pos
session of T.Ot 0 Spanish prisoners, cap
tured, with their a'-rss. fighting
against the Filipinos, "is eloquent
proof .f the nullity of Spanish sov
ereignty, as when they surrendered
t'pa'm's hold was irrevocably !ost."
Th" document says:
"beplyiag to tin- Spanish comtnis

litical interests in the islands, we
asked for a treaty of peace and friend

because their possession is our most

count with Spain a:u!oltain from her
recognition of our independence."

The Filipinos claim that they con
rp'ered all the country except Manila,
and that they co-operated in securing
the hitter's capitulation by surround
ing it at the cost of thousands of live.
Tle-y also claim they conquered the

An Interesting Ilinlorical Fact.
An interesting historical fact, dating
back to 1ST3, has come to light ill
which Admiral Dewey was the central
figure. Dewey, then a commander,
was in command of the United States
steamship Narragansett.on the Asiatic
station, having taken charge of the
vessel on March 1, 1ST3.
The vessel was on surveying duty
when the Virginius trouble was pre
cipitated and a war with Spai.i
Commander Dewey wrote to the
navy department requesting that in
case war was declared he should be as
signed to the duty of capturing Ma
nila. The peaceful settlement of the con
troversy with Spain avoided the neces
sity for a hostile demonstration, but
the interesting fact is that the dough
ty ollieer had his eye on Manila over a
quarter of a century ago. A search
will be made for the letter in the tiles
of the navy department, and if found
it is expected an ctTort will lie made
by the citizens committee to have it
reproduced as a souvenir of the re
ception. A BRUSH WITH THE NATIVES.

Manila has landed force. Charlestowu
is on her way to Palatine, and will ren

The island of Palalmc. the serene ot
the brush with the Moros, detailed in
Admiral Watson's dispatch, is situated
southeast of the Island of Palawan,
which is the most westerly of the
Philippine islands and directly west ol
the Island of Panay. The light which
was established there by Lieutenant
Commander Xazro shows for 23 mile
and is regaried as of considerable im
portance to navigation, being in direct
line between Singapore and the
Straits settlements and the islands to
the north. The island is 22 miles long
and according to information in the
possession of the department, has but
a population of 1,100. These are de
scribed in Admiral Watson's dispatch
as Moros, the name applied to the
fierce natives of the Sulu group. They
are Mohammedans and are regarded
as the most warlike people in tho Phil
ippines. The capital. Palabac, has a
population of 200. The Spanish gov
ernment established a military post
there in 1S37. It consists of a bar
racks, a hospital and an armed fort.
The Manila, the vessel described in
the dispatch, is a captured transport.
Its mission in that vicinity is unknown
to the navy department.

The Ileal Rcanon Why China Re
fused to Allow the Export of
Homes nntl Mules.
Washington, Aug. 9. Some time ago
Gen. Otis made requisition on the war
department for 2"(!) horses to mount
the cavalry in the 1'hilippines. He
stated in the dispatch that horses from
the islands were not satisfactory and
that contracts for them in China had
faiiid, the words 'contraband of war"
The matter wr.s then referred to the
state department for investigation and
Minister Conger, on June 3, wrote a
letter to Secretary Ilay inclosing the
correspondence that had passed be
tween the Chinese foreign ofliee and
himself relative to the refusal of China
to allow the jKinies to be exported.
It appeared from thiacorrespondence
that 1C S. Daltou had contracted at
Tien-Tsia for 75 ponies and 25 mules,
but was refused an export pass. Min
ister Conger upon investigation found
that the refusal of China was IklsihI
uj)on a law of China prohibiting tho
export of horses and ponies. Uussia
has In ch refused as well as other coun
tries, and the Chinese foreign otlice
said they could not make an exception
in favor of the United States. No sug

LETTER TO MRS. K-fMAtS KO. 9384!
" Dear Mrs. Pixkiiam For some
time 1 have thought of writing to yon
to let you know of the great benefit I
from the use of
Lydia. E. Pink
Soon after the
hi rth of my first
child, I com
menced to have spells with ray spine.
Every month I grew worse and at last
became so bad that I found I was
gradually losing my mind.
' The doctors treated me for female
troubles, but I got ro tetter. One
doctor told me that I would be insane.
I was advh-cd by a friend to give Lydia
E. rinkham's Vegetable Compound a.
trial, and before I ha:l tahen all of tho
first bottle my neighbors noticed the
change in rue.
1 have now taken five bottles and
cannot find words sufficient to praise it.
I advise every woman who is suffering
from any female weakness" to give it 3
fair trial. I thank you for your good
medicine." -Mrs. Gekteude M. Johs
SOX, Joxesbobo, Tksas.
Mrs. Perkins letter.
