once. Through M. Lnborl's skillful
questioning the testimony adduced
was favorable in its bearing to the
prisoner. The lawyer made n stiong
point on the part Esterhazy played.
Mercler said hodidnotknowKsterlin.y
and only snw him onco at tho Zola
trial. "That is very interesting," ex
claimed Laborl, "but surely General
Mercler wns present at the Esterhazy
trial?" The general replied that he
was not there and that he knew noth

hazy prosecution. "What," cried M.
Laborl, "General Mercler, who was the
chief accuser of Dreyfus, did not even
follow the proceedings of tho Ester
