alized at the favorable testimony for
Dreyfus, and arc almost ready to turn
tall in order to save themselves. The
win in divining, ami it is said some

Counsel for Dreyfus Seek Out
PLANS TO INSURE ACQUITTAL
Summon! For I.nte 1'orelcn.Mllltary At
taches Kloquent Appeal Made to
Emperor William find Xing
Humbert to I'rrnilt .Subject
to (She Testimony.
M. Laborl telegraphed personal ap
peals to Emperor William and King
Humbert to grant permission to Colo
nel Sohwartzkoppeu and Colonel Pa
ulzzardl, German and Italian military
attaches In Paris in 1801, to como to
Rcnnca to testify in tho trial of Cap
tain Dreyfus. This is the news of the
day, and the chief topic of conversation
in tho cafes and resorts of the journal
ists this evening.
Tho appeals were couched in elo
quent terms, invoking the assistance
of their majesties in the name of jus
tice and humanity. They nre qulto
supplementary to the formal applica
tion that will be made by the govern
ment commissary, Major Carrlcrc.
The demand of M. Laborl that the
court-martial should issue process,
subject to the approval of the two
sovereigns, came like a thunderbolt at
Tuesday's session. The step is fraught
with momentous consequences, as it
affords Emperor William an opportu
nity again to assume his favorite role
of arbiter of the destinies of the world.
No one vill be surprised if Colonel
Schwartkoppen, in tho name of the
kaiser, makes a declaration that will
practically decide the result of the
The first witness who was called to
tho bar was Reporter llassctt, whom
tho Matin sent to London to interview
Major Count Ferdinand Walsin Ester
hazy. The witness deposed that Es
terhazy confessed to him that he
wroto tho bordereau under orders from
Colonel Saudhcrr, who was then chief
of the secret Intelligence bureau. The
ortler, Esterhazy said, was to catch
the traitor at the headquarters of the
general staff, whom Esterhazy after
ward said was Captain Dreyfus.
Captain Dreyfus urose and in a clear
voice emphatically insisted that the
circular of May 17, 1803, announcing
that the probationers would not go to
the maneuvers was written in the
clearest language, which the court
would sec if it were read. Ho reiter
ated that he had never asked to go
to the maneuvers, for he was abso
lutely convinced that such a request
would not be granted.
KEARSARGE IS A SWIFT SHIP
Shows Au Average, Speed of Seventeen
and u Quarter Knots.
The ofllclal reading of the log gave
the first class battleship Kearsurge,
which went on her trial trip, a speed
of seventeen and one-fourth knots,
which speed was retained nearly half
an hour. This is considered as phe
nominal In view of the fact that the
vessel's bottom is in a pretty filthy
condition, having been in the water
continuously for nearly thirteen
months. The steam and hand steering
gear were subjected to the most severe
tests, tho mass of steel and iron re
sponding to her wheel almost as readi
ly as a steam launch.
On the first trial she made a semi
circular turn inward, which was a suc
cess in every particular. All tho ar
mor and main battery of the ICearsnrge
is in place. Her secondary battery
will bo placed on board, and she will
go to New York for equipment.

The British steamer Woodruff has
arrived fromllamburg. On August 31,
250 miles bouth of Charleston, tho
Woodruff picked up Maurice Audcrson
and Goodmund Tliomascn, survivors of
the Norwegian bark Drot, wrecked
August 15 off the Floridacoast. Ander
son is a raving maniac and his com
panion in shockingly mutilated from
bites of the crazed man. Tliomascn
tells n dreadful story. The captain of
the Drot and seven seamen were swept
overboard and lost In tho recent West
Indian hurricane. The mate and seven
other men put to sea on a raft made
from decking. The raft parted Boon
after, and the mate and" one man were
separated from the others. The matc'n
companion was landed at Philadelphia
by the German steamer Tltania on Au
gust 22. He stotcd that the mate sui
cided. Of the six men on tho other
part of the raft one became crazed
from exposure and jumped into tho
sea. The others, exhausted from Buf
fering, fell overboard and wero lost.
Anderson, Tliomascn and a German
seaman drew lots as to which should
be eaten, ns none of them had had a
mouthful to cat since they took to the
raft. 'Tho lot fell to the German. Ho
wan killed and the blood sucked from
his veins by the survivors.
Soon after Anderson lost his reason
and savagely attacked his only com
panion. Thomascn's breast and face
were bitten in several places, chunks
of good size being torn out. lloth mon
are now in the Charleston hospital, and
tho Norwegian consul has taken tho
case in hand.
MASS OF STUPID NONSENSE,
Esterhnry's Comment on tbo Handwrit
Maj. Count Ferdinand William Ester
hazy, writing to the London Evening
News describes the expert handwrit
ing in tho court-martial of Captain
Dreyfus at Itemies as "an overwhelm
ing mass of stupid nonsense.'1 He says
the late Colonel Henry and Du Paty dc
Clam were "victimized by tlie general
stall to cover their own faults." Con
tinuing, ho says:
"France is being devastated by a
civil war all tho more abomnable be
cause it is not being fought with arms.
The Dreyfus verdict will not end the
strife. The acquittal of Dreyfus, for
which the government is working se
cretly, will result in the complete dis
organization of the French military
system and the triumph of the social
ists." GOLD IN PAYING QUANTITIES,
Work Now In Progress on tbe DUlenbeck
Farm In Seward County.
J. S. Dillenbeek, the owner of the
farm near Pleasant Dale where gold
was discovered several years ago, tells
his friends that ho believes his trou
bles are over and that at last he would
be able to get out his gold at a profit.
He was in Lincoln the other day ac
companied by Scott Newcomer of Col
orado City, who said that he had vir
tually succeeded in perfecting a pro
cess for taking out the gold from the
earth at Pleasant Dale at an expense
of not more than SI. 50 a ton. As the

In gold, he believed that the profit
from mining on the DUlenbeck farm
would be about the same as at the
great Homestake mine in tho lllack
Hills. He says that the small plant

Food CoiumUsloner Will hue tbo Audltoi
Mandamus proceedings will bo com
menced by Food Commissioner Mb
bard against Auditor Cornell to secure
the allowance of a salary claim. Audi
tor Cornell was reported to have al
lowed Mr. Hibbard's salary last week
after he had paid a disputed appropri
ation of SI, .100 to the state horticul
tural society, but the report turned out
to huve been a mistake.
The food comm!s-lou law created a
food commission and closed with tho
assertion that an annual appropria
tion of 85,000 should be made to sup
port the commission, but that the
amount paid for salary and expenses
shpuld not exceed the amount of fees
received by the commission. Auditor
Cornell doubted that tho bill legally
carried an appropriation with it.
