DUPATY IS WANTED
Dreyfus Case Hinges on Dc
ALL THE OTHERS ARE DEAD,
Arm j- StalT Conaplrr to Keep du l'ty da

n Willing Instrument In Their
llnndi Urarnatlo Scene
In Conrt Ibxirn.
"Dcnd men lull no tales." This is
ilic barricade behind which Gcncrnl
Mercler nnd the general stuff huvu in
Hut there Is one weak point In their
defense Colonel Du l'aty do Clam
and the military clique know it, and
ore (driving to the utmost to keep him
out of M. Luborl's clutches. If they
can prevont Du l'aty dc Clum, who
is now called the "Hick man of the
Dreyfus affair," from appearing at the
witness bar, they can effectually put
the silence of the tomb bctwecu truth
and justice. M. Labori Is fighting
tooth nnd nail to drag him into court,
but Colonel Jouaust persists in lend
ing him the necessary assistance. Ho
declines to send reputablo doctors to
officially report on the state of Du
l'aty dc Chun's health, whlcH, every
Drcyfusard firmly believes, is only
diplomatically affected and that ho
will recover quickly enough nftcr tho
M. Labori hit tho nail on the head
Saturday when, replying to General
Merclcr's remarks, he exclaimed: "Al
ways the dead, Sandherr dead, Henry
djnd, Du Puty do Clam is not coming."
Colonel Jouaust Immediately cut him
bhort, declaring lie must not make oh
wrvatlons, nnd M. Labori staggered
nnd fell back into his seat with a
Colonel Jouaust was not so particu
lar in stopping tho stream of Irrele
vant gossip which flowed from the
lips of tho military witnesses who
have dollied before tho court during
the past fortnight. While, however,
the Dreyfusards belicvo Du l'aty do
Clam Is not seriously ill, they feel a
secret dread, which Is expressed In tho
significant remark, not infrequently
heard: ".Sandherr is dead, Henry
committed suicide, and Du l'aty do
Clam will die."
The confrontation of Colonel Maurcl,
Cnptnln Freystaetcr nnd General Mer
cler was an instructive exposure of
the fraud and dishonesty of tho general
staff, whluh the absence of Du l'aty do
Clam nlono prevented from being com
plete. Tho defenso might demand
t hat a commission be sent to examine
Du l'aty do Clam on Ids sick-bed. Hut
M. Labori nnd M. Dumangc despair of
obtaining a satisfactory result there
from. They want to have Du l'uty do
Clam in court and turn tho screws of
the rack themselves.
Captain Froybtaetor was called to
the bar. His opening statement was
grapo nnd canister for tho Mercler
gang. Ho gave tho Ho direct to Col
onel Maurcl, who had stated that ho
had only rcod one of tho secret docu
ments at tho first trial. Captain Frey
stacter said: "Not only did I rend
theiU, but Colonel Maurcl read them,
and made commentaries after each."
This was tho lie direct, and Colonel
Maurel confessed himself a liar when
ho objected to tho use of the term,
"commentaries" as used by Freystaetcr.
.Maurcl wns lilsseu by the crowd.
Mercler was called, and first ho was
allowed to question Freystaetcr, en
deavoring to catch him on a question
regarding tho Robin shell, but Frcy
etacter confounded him by answering
that ho did not say the document re
ferred to tho Robin shell, but to a
shell, and tho simple nnswer showed
up the craftiness of General Mercler.
Cnptain Frcystaotor quoted the Pnnlz
rardl dispatch to tho court martial,
flatly codtradlcting Merclor.
Then M. Lnborl started in on General
Mcroler. Mercler saw tho trap he was
nbout to get Into nnd shifted ills posi
tion by declaring that it was not du
l'aty do Clam who compiled tho
dossier, but tho lato Colonel Sandherr.
Today's session tore tho last shred
jf credit from Merclor, but added tho
uamo of Froystaoter to the little roll
of heroes who have risked everything
in the defenso of Droyfus. Ono' needs
to bo in tho very midst of the storm of
passion now raging in Franco to appre
ciate tho height of moral courage to
which captain Freystaetor has risen in
coming forward to tho dofense of tho
truth against tho army chiefs. Thoy
are simply furious at tho thorough ex
posure, and all blame Maurel for fall
ing into tho trap laid for him by M.
Labori in Thursday cross-cxatntna-Hon,
although It is difficult to see
what else Maurcl could have done.
After tho court roso and nil the pub
Jlo were supposed to be exoluded, Gen
eral Mercler accosted Colonel Maurel
in the court yard nnd gave lilm a plcco
of his mind, oven going to tho extent
of calling him a blockhead, Mnurol
vainly, protested his holplessness nnd
tho impossibility of warding off La
iborl's homo thrusts in view of Captain
Freystacter's testimony. Finally Mer
clor left him in a temper.

Tho unexampled defeat of tho gov

WAS A DREYFUS DAY.
Itertllllon Theory Dumped hy Other
The greater part of the evidence nt
Monday's session of the Dreyfus court
martial, for n "mange, was in favor of
Droyfus. Flvo witnesses were for him
and two against him.
The most interesting testimony wns
thnt of Chief Handwriting Expert
Chnrnvay, who had come to declare he
had changed entirely his opinion,
which in 1601 wns against, nnd now is
in favor of Dreyfus, who, lie today
affirmed, was not tho author of the
bordereau. Ills candid confession of
error wns received with murmurs of
satisfaction in court, which became
discreet applause, in splto of Colonel
Jounust's patent disapproval, when he
solemnly added, "I declare here, on my
soul and conscience, that tho bordereau
was written by Estherha.y."
The most important incident, how
ever, was Colonel Jounust's acquies
cence to Major Carrlcre's request that
n rogatory commission bo instructed
to take Colonel Du l'aty dc Clam's
deposition. Tho initiative came purely
from tho government commissary,

Welcome llnlf of the lloj
lo on to Onmhn
The First Nebraska regiment reached
Lincoln Inst Tuesdny evening. The
first section came in nt 8:5o,over twelve
hours Inter than schedule time. The
second section camo in at 0:15 and the
third at 0:25. About hulf of the com
panies dropped off and took trains for
home, only nbout 400 or 500 going to
Oinahn, where a big reception wns lind
Forty minutes before the first train
came iu the whistles broke loose. The
fire whistles, the creamery whistle,
many locomotive whistles nnd tho big
siren on the Hurltugtou round house
filled the air with noises. Hut little of
the noise mndo by the whistles could
be heard in the vicinity of the depot.
The greater noise was drowned by
the lesser, the screech of tin horns and
the explosions made by small firearms. 1
Tho regiment wns glnd to surrender
themselves to the kind friends who
crowded nround them nnd wept for
joy over their return. The termina
tion of the long agony to the friends
nnd the certainty of the luxuries of
home to the men with tho relief from
strain nil nround wns a time of hnppi
ness to everybody. Tho welcome the
men received left them no doubts ns to
their standing in Nebraska.
Tho soldiers knew that they were
tho heroes of the state nnd that what
they wanted was theirs for the asking.
Men scrambled from doors nnd win
dows of the train and people emerged
from underneath and descended from
on top fill the boys were fairly
Friends of long standing embraced
each other and mora than one man
kissed his friend who had been so long
away. The wives nnd families of some
of the officers soon pushed their way
through the crowd nnd found their
loved ones. Quite as affecting scenes
as at the time of the leave taking wero
Cotnpnny D of Lincoln came in on
the last section. Tho Fccond and third
sections nrrived close together. The
second section blocked the wav of up
proaeh to the train carrying the home
hoys and ns soon ns it wns discovered
that Company D was here, n jam occur
red between the two trains which al
most caused serious trouble.
The men of the company seemed to
vanish as in the air. Their relntlves
sought them out and boro them away
and in five minutes it was n difficult
mnttcr to locate n Company I) mnu.
Members of the regiment began to
leave the trains west of Oxford nnd go
to their homes. At Oxford company
II of Nelson left the third section nnd
took tho valley line of the Hurliiwtou
for home. Company C of Hcatrlce left
the second section of the train at Crete
nnd took n special train for home.
Company A of York returned home by
way of Aurora. Some of tho Nelson
boys nnd the Geneva company left the
trnln nt Fulrmont. No. ill was held
at Lincoln to take tho Columbus com
pany home. A special train was run
from Lincoln to Hcnnct to accommo
date tho members of company I. The
Lincoln boys left the train at Lincoln.
There were n great many Lincoln boys
in other companies besides company D
and tliis fact caused desertions from
nearly nil the companies when the
trains reached Lincoln. Nearly all of
tho Hrolten How boys went through to
Omaha, as well as tho Fullerton boys
who were members of company It,
Tho trip across tho stato was a per
fect storm of ovations. Great demon
strations greeted the returning heroes.
At most of the towns stops of consider
able length were mado to allow tho
pent up enthusiasm of tho cities to
givo itself exprpsslon.
The First regiment boysare the only
