The excitement produced from time to time by the Humbert. Drey fus and Syvot affairs, pale Into in- significance by comparison, and the revela-iona which have crowded thick and .fast during the last few days, pointing to (he possible expo-un of a national scandal, promise to att -act world, wide attention. Mhi ster of Justice Brland is re porter already to have beguni an in quiry into the case to determine the truth of the allegation that M. Lei tett, examining magistrate, enter tained relations with Mme. Steinhell which induced him to stifle the affair. The political opponents of the gov ernment, like Henri Rochefort, have been trying to make political capital of the affair by seening to force an expoi-ure of the scandal connected with the mysterious death of Presi dent of ("resident" Faure In 1899. Al though hushed up at the time, It was eonini n knowledge among those be hind the scenes that Mine. Steinhell was with Faure at lilysee palace when Faure died. Some (tapers do not hedtate to print what they term the story of the lhuson. According to these stories Faure had met Mine. Steluhell In the Swiss Alps during the maneuvres the pear previous to his death, and she was greatly enamored of hlni. Acted Queer at Funeral.1 j A person who attended Faure's funeral described to the Associated Press today how, after the ceremony at the cemetery, Mme. Steinhell fell on he:- knees at the grave and placed a bunch of violets on the coffin. Then, he said, sobbing she pros trated herself on the ground, pas sionately kissing Faure's portrait. Immediately after this, according to the same authority, Steinhlll, who had bo n complacent at the friend ship existing between Faure and his wife and who had accepted the le gion of Honor at the hands of PresI dent Faure, began proceedings for a divorce, but through the Intervention of his family this suit was withdrawn According to gossip, compromising papers of some political Importance were surrendered. Poisoned Faure is Charge, The antlSemite Libre Parole charge Mme. Steinhell with having poisoned Faure. The newspaper re calls that on the day of the funeral a writer on the Libre Parole who had seen Ihe body said: "All the skill of the er.ibalmer was unable to preserve the corpse from the dissolvent ac tion of a subtle poison." The Journal continues by charging that Chief of "Ddtctlves Haniard and Magistrate! Leydett knew the arrest of Mme. Stelnt.eil was inevitable and would lead to a raking up of the scandalous mvEte.-y of Faure's . death, which. with difficulty had been stifled for ten years, and accordingly did their best t'j hush up the present Inquiry. The newspaper concludes by say fng that Faure was1 poisoned because he s opposed to a revision In the Dreyfus case.

' The defendants entered the court room from the east door of the court house to avoid the crowd at the south dooi, Robin Cooper walking first with Slurlff Sam Borum. They were fol lowed by Col.

During the reading of the Indict ments to the defendants separately the manner of each was close v watched by all In the court room. Col. Cooper showed not the slightest excitement. With his son Robin the case was ifl'errnt. He lacked the stoicism of his father, and besides showing some effects from his confinement and 'vonnds, he was nervous. Drrlng the nadlng of the Indictment against him lie sat with bowed head. He scarce ly ratsed his head until Judge Hart naked "Are you guilty or not guilty?"
