French Supreme Court
Declares Army Offi
WILL HAVE NO RETRIAL
Will be Restored to Position-
Ends Case Fought for
Paris, July 12. The supreme court
today announced its decision annulling
the condemnation of Dreyfus without
retrial. The effect of the decision is
the complete vindication of Dreyfus,
entitling him to restoration to his rank
in the army as though he had never
ThruDK on Hand.
The decision was read by Presiding
Judge M. Ballot Beaupre, president of
the court of cessation immediately on
the reassembling of the court at noon.
The palace of justice was thronged
with an eager crowd seeking admission
to the court room. Among those pres
ent were Maitre Mornard, counsel for
Dreyfus, Colonel Picquart. Madame
Zola. Mathew Dreyfus, brother of the
captain and others who figured in the
llrtuainM in (iarrrt.
Captain Dreyfus was not present,
remaining in the garret where he has
been hitherto cut off from the outer
world. The scene of the reading of the
decision was a pronounced one of im
pressive dignity. The court, consisting
of 48 judges in gowns and flowing
robes solemnly mounted the bench.
Krad in Mlrncr.
Deep silence prevailed as the presid
ing judge read the decision minutely
reviewing the series of sensational
events of the last 12 years and com
pletely disculpating Dreyfus of all
wrong doing, freeing him of the accusa
tion of being the author of the famous
incriminating documents. Mathew
Dreyfus hastily dispatched a messen
ger to bear the news to Captain Drey
fus and Mme. Dreyfus.
Fratnrm of lcviIon.
The main features of the decision
are as follows. The court holds three
new facts have been established:
First That the document from Gen
eral Mercier's secret papers presented
at the Rennes court martial, in which
the initial "D" was substituted for "P"
was a falsification establishing a
strong presumption of Dreyfus' inno
cence. Second That another document
from the secret papers in which Drey
fus was alleged to have been shown to
have delivered to the Germans plans
for railway mobilization had never
reached the war department authori
ties and therefore Dreyfus could not
have secured possession of it.
Third That the Rennes court mar
tial failed to hear essential testimony
calculated to establish the fact that
Dreyfus was innocent.
SafnVlrnt to Clear.
"These facts." the decision of the
court says, "without seeking for any
further grounds, are of a nature to es
tablish the innocence of the accused
and It is only necessary to examine
whether the verdict of the Rennes
court martial shall be annuulled with
out retrial or be followed by another
trial by court martial."
Ilnnrtl on t'oajertare.
After a lengthy review of the docu
ment in the case known as the Border
eau, the decision says it was written by
"Major Count Esrerhazy and that the
accusation connecting Dreyfus with
the Bordereau rests only on hypothesis
o Mnlltr Given.
"The accusation against Dreyfus,"
continues the decision, "whether based
on hand writing or the text of the Bor
dereau was completely unjustified and
without motive. Moreover, Dreyfus,
having a large fortune, one seeks in
vain for any reason for his committing
such a great crime."
"The court therefore holds that, as
nil accusations against the accused fall
to the ground, there U no necessity for
a new trial and consequently judgment
in condemnation is annulled as unwar
ranted by the evidence."
In conclusion, the court ordered its
decision to be transferred on the rec
ords of the Rennes court martial and to
be inserted in the official journal, and
also in five newspapers to be designat
ed by the procurator general and at
the cost of the government In 50 pa
pers of Paris and the provinces, to be
designated by Dreyfus."

Klevnte l'lctiiiart, Too.
It has already been determined, how
ever, that besides the restoration of
Dreyfus to the army, a special will be
presented to parliament authorizing
the minister of war to restore Colonel
Picquart, whose sense of justice
brought about the quashing of the ver
dict of the Rennis court martial to the
army from which he was degraded ow
ing to charges which he brought
against the late Colonel Henry.
Paris, July 12. In an interview af
ter the announcement of the decision,
Dreyfus said: "This has been a long
and terrible ordeal. I had begun to
feel it would never end. It is clear the
decision restores me to my old place
in the army, but I am not aware of the
intentions of the government concern
ing my advancement in rank.
"I have nothing to say against my
accusers. Being again an officer I am

FriendN Believe In Illm.
Friends and relatives of Dreyfus, not
ably his wife, always believed in his
innocence and devoted their energies
to proving he was unjustly condemned.
Colonel Picquart. when he became
chief of the intelligence department of
the French army in 1895. examined the
documents in the proceedings against
Dreyfus and questioned the correctness
of the proceedings, and continuing the
investigation, formed an opinion that
the evidence pointed to Major Count
Esterhazy as being the guilty man.
Fiisht for Honor of .rmy.
Picquart determined to see justice
done and there ensued a fight to pre
serve the honor of the French army.
Dreyfus on Nov. 15 charged Esterhazy
