Xtbe IDre^fus Case, WEBSTER, in the opening of his cele -I_JK brated Reply to Hayne, remarked that it was decidedly not useless, after all that had been said in tine discussion, to return to its beginning and state again what it was all about. Perhaps the same thing may be said ndw about the Dreyfus case, which has been more or less before the public for the last four years, and which vr. c do hope may now be reaching its final crisis. What will be attempted here is, not to provide with arguments either those who believe the ex-Captain of artillery to be guilty, or those who hold him to be, according to Major dv Paty de Clam's dramatic expression, the greatest martyr of this century, but simply to state those facts which lie on the surface, and which, in the heat of the discussion to which this celebrated case has piven birth, may have been somewhat forgotten by the public. THE FIRST RUMOR. Late in the fall of the year 189 _, a Paris news paper, which had then gained neither the notoriety nor the circulation that it now possesses, La Libre Parole, announced that a Jewish officer, who be longed to the offices of the General Staff in the War Department, had been put under arrest and was soon to undergo trial under an accusation of treason. Although La Libre Parole was known to be a fa natical anti-Semitic newspaper, and as such .is time and again leveled at members of the Jewish race ac cusations which had proved totally groundless, the statement at once produced in Prance the greatest excitement. In the midst of the violent discussions to which political questions had given rise since, and even before, the establishment of the Republic, the army had been the one subject upon which the French had felt that, in sentiment at least, they were all absolutely united. Especially had it been so since the disasters of the Franco-German War, and through the long and preserving efforts which had been made with the object of reconstituting the military strength of the nation.
