be in keeping with journalistic

Inasmuch as this interview covers

tho political situation in France, our
readersfwill have no reason to find
fault with the omission.

The following extracts will be

the great journalist himself:
"Hochefort is far from being a
a sanguinary revolutionist. Nor
was he- ever a socialist. In fact,
he Is Immensely fond of money,
and, in justice "to him, it must be
acknowledged that, anxious to pre

wit and Tils sarcasm were really re
markable, and in a few years, when
people will be able to pass judg

"A Souvenir to the 'Bee.'
About ten days ago, the tele
graph announced the safe arrival at
San Francisco, of Henri Hochefort,
the famous French exile, who had
successfully escaped from the penal
colony at New Caledonia.
Subsequently the telegraph an
nounced Rochefort's arrival at Salt
Lake City and his departure for New
York over the Union Pacific rail
way, via Omaha. That was about
all the reliable intelligence that has
so far reached us touching Roche
fort's life in and escape from New
While at San Francisco Roche
fort had by his shrewed journalistic
strategy managed to outflank tho
army of Bohemians who had vain
ly ransacked all" the hotels, consular
offices and railway depots in quest
of the much looked for interview.
One of these reporters had followed
Rochefort clear to Sacramento, but
even his account, although cover
ing much space, is decidedly meagre
and unreliable. Undaunteu uy
these discouraging circumstances,
the Bee resolved to make a well
concerted effort to penetrate
tho peculiar mystery that en
shrouded this remarkable traveler.
The marked success that has at
tended the Bee's effort is only
another evidence of its recognized
merit in the journalistic field. Armed
with a handful of daily Bees and
a full supply of French phrases, the
Bee interviewer started on the
Westward bound passenger train
over the Union Pacific with a view
of intercepting the object of his
solicitude before he reached Oma
ha. He was accompanied by a
local reporter of another enterpris
ing Omaha daily, who had laid in a
full stock of tho German vornaou
lar, which he thought would serve
him in his intercourse with the dis
The incoming train was boarded
at Valley Station. Upon entering
one of the palace cars tho reporters
had no difficulty In recognizing the
famous editor of La Lanternc
among an interesting group of pas
sengers. Tlie aignineu mm ou-
starcneu interviewer oi uui iuh
Democratic contemporary presented
his credentials, and politely in
quired whether Monsieur Rochefort
could entertain him a few moments.
"Avcc beaucoup de laisir mats jc
ne parte pas Anglais," replied the
"Monsieur Hochefort does not
speak English," said a handsomo
young lady passenger, who was try
ing to act as interpreter in sweet
sounding,but rather broken boarding
Bchool French. "All! sprechen Sic
Deutschf" said the nonplussed re
porter, with a triumphant air. "Non
je ne comprend pas I'Allemand,"
replied Monsieur Rochefort. "He
does not understand German," said
the young lady, and our discom
fitted companion bowed himself out
of the august presence.
It was tho Bee reporter's turn
HOW ROCnEFOHT LOOKED.
Tho man that made Louis Napo
leon tremble, and frequently shook
the French empire with his incisive
pen, was like many other men of
genius, without preposesiing ap
pearance. Dressed in a plain and
unassuming traveling suit, ho had
nothing ab ut him that would indi
cate a superabundance of self
esteem or -elf-importance.
The only remarkable traits of
character, indicated by his bronzed
pock-marked angular face, his
prominent Roman nose, square
forehead, and firm mouth and chin,
were physical and moral courage,
couplt-.l with imperturable coolne&s.
Tho-e large light blue eyes, might
under tome extreme excitement,
send forth passionate flashes, but
when we looked into them, they
were merely beaming with latent
intelligence and good humor.
His d irk brown and thick curly
hair had a liberal sprinkling of gray,
and his thin moustache and goatee
also tinjred with the silvery threads
contrasted somewhat sadly with the
otherwise youthful -appearance.
With a well built and apparently
muscular frame Rochefort stands
about five feet ten in his stockings.
His hands and feet are proportion
ate' large, and his appearance
that of a man who could under try
ing circumstances, endure much
hardship. His age is about forty.
A REACTIONARY NEWSPAPER.
Accepting a copy of the Bee
Monsieur Rochefort instinctively
turned to that portion of the tele
graphic columns where his name
appeared in connecifm with the pro
posed reception in New York. Sud
denl . his eye caught the following
item in the Bee's pungent column:
"Rochefort is expected to reach
Chicago Thursday, and the Tribune
of that city wants incendiaries of
all kinds, barn-burners, heretic
burners, and members of the Amer
ican Reform League, to unite in
giving the illustrious leader of the
Parisian petrolcuse a fitting recep
tion." Turning to the lady passenger re
ferred to, he requested a translation
of this item. This almost exhausted
the young lady's mental dictionary,
but 'when she finished, Hochefort
exclaimed, "Well that can't be a
Republican newspaper."" The Bee
reporter explained that the Chicago
Tribune was what might be called
Conservative in French parlance.
"No," said Rochefort, "it must: be
a reactionary journal, or else it
would not have writterrihus." -
Dropping this theme, the Bee in
terviewer engaged in a rambling
conversation, covered substantially
by the following -dialogue:
" Reporter 1 anraaxioes to obtain
tome reHsttetaformatknr touching
your prison life In and escape from
2sev? Caledonia. You have been
rather reticent so far, judging from
reports in the San Francisco papers.
Rochefort 1 do not desire too
much newspaper notoriety. The re
ports in the San Francisco papers
are not reliable. They have done
too much guessing.
Reporter When did you leave
New Caledonia, and how have you
enjoyed the trip so far?
Hochefort We left New Caledo
nia on the 20th of March. It has
been a somewhat tedious journey.
Still I cannot complain. I am now
in excellent health. When I first
rpnrhed New Caledonia, I looked
like a zebra. I was reduced to a per
fect skeleton. My most intimate
friends could not have recognized
me. I suffered so much from sea sick
ness, home sickness, and that terri
ble equatorial sun.
BOCHEFOBT AND GEORGE FRANCIS.
Reporter Were you ever in
America before, and what do you
think of the country as far as you
have seen it?
Hochefort I have never been in
America before. You have a won
derful and charming country. lama
great admirer of nature, and have
enjoyed the trans-continental scene
ry very much.
JieporterL presume you are ac
quainted with some Americans, and
particularly with that enthusiastic
Communist, George Francis Train.
Omaha is his country home.
Rochefort Train? I don't re
member that name.
Reporter You must surely have
met him. He was in France during
the great Communistic revolt, and
claims to have been one of your
chief leaders at Marseilles, Lyons
and various points.
Rochefort l never nave nearu ui
him. I was in Paris during most of
that time, but if he had done any
thing remarkable I should surely
have Heard of it.
PRISON LIFE IN NEW CALEDONIA.
Reporter How long were you in
New Caledonia, and what kind oT
life did you lead there?
Rochefort Although I was sen
tenced to deportation three years ago
I really -have spent only three
months on the island, and that was
enough for me. I cannot complain
about the treatment. Prisoners who
have money are allowed to buy such
luxuries as may be obtained there.
Myself and several well-to-do com
panions had a house built for our
selves which afforded us much com
fort But the miserable wretches
who came there without means are
literally starving. There are thirty-
five hundred of these ragged unfor
fortunates on the island, and what,
with that terrible broiling heat, the
voracious gnats and mosquitoes and
tho slim fare, they are dying off
at a fearful rate. Oh, you can form
no idea of that intolerable country.
Even our house afforded us but poor
shelter against thoe poisonous in
sects. Reporter What space are those
prisoners allowed to move in and
are they compelled to work ? How
do the guards and overseers manage
to live ?
Rochefort The prisoners arc per
mitted to move in a region cover
ing about ten miles back from the
tea. Political prisoners are de
ported, and therefore not subjected
to hard labor like those transported
for grave criminal offenses. They
are allowed to do prptty much what
they please within the linos. The
guards are soldiers, and thej', of
course are also moro or les3 suoject
to the malarious diseases, still they
livo more comfortably and gen
erally sleep on the high plateau,
which is not as dcamy.as tno low
lands near tho shoro. They are
generally transported in ships
of war while the prisoners come
there decimated to skeletons by
the voyage in transport ships. Take
the vessel I came in and out of the
five hundred and forty persons on
board four hundred aud eighty
were suffering from tho scurvy.
Many of them died within a few
weeks after reaching their destina
tion. THE TRUE STOKV OF THE ESCAPE.
Reporter You had a most peril
ous escape I am. told you had to
swim for life. How long were you
in tho water?
Rochefort I should say it was
perilous. Such a thing has never
been undertaken before, and we
were the first prisoners that have
ever escaped from that dreadful
inland. There were six of us, but
there were only two that swam with
me; the others started from a distant
point on the inland. We had en
gaged an English bark of four hun
dred tons capacity, to sail around
that coast How that was accom
plished I prefer not to tell. The
bark was almost out of sight, be
tween six and eight miles out at sea.
It was a dark night. We quietly
slipped into the ocean about eight
p. m., and remained in the water
until after midnight boforo we oould
reach tho vessel. It was a long,
long swim for dear life, and we
were well nigh exhausted when
thev nicked us up.
Reporter Visa this the first op
portunity j'ou had for escaping?
Rochefort No! Before I left
France I was all along assured that
I should not bo deported, and final
ly the Government became int.mi
dated by the Legitimists, and they
decided to get me out of the country-
They were, however, Inclined
to let me escape, with the under
standing that I would go to Belgium
or Switzerland,but I refused to avail
myself of the proffered opportunity;
I preferred to share the exile with
HC MAIIONjTIIIERS AND GAMBETTA
Reporter They are having "very
exciting times in France just now.
"What do you think of the prospect?
Rochefort In mj' opinion the
prospect lor the Republicans is very
bright. McMabon cannot sustain
himself three months. He has lost
his grip on the Right, whiohput him
into power, and cannot get a foot
hold with tho Left. He is lost. Mc
Mabon might make a creditable ru
ler for Arabs or Africans, but he
does not comprehend tho French
people. He governed the Algerians
for twenty-five years, and that
would spoil any man for governing
a civilized nation. Hols not even
a first-class military man; at least
his record during the Franco-Prus-hian
war is not very brilliant. It is
more than probable that Thiers will
be at the head of the Government
again within the next ninety days.
Reporter What about Thiers ?
Rochefort Although Thiers has
caused me much misery and treated
me very shabbily, I must confess he
has deserved great credit for his un
swerving fidelity to tho Republic.
He is prudent and careful, and is
just the man we want to pull the
Republic out of the mire. For my
part I shall do vhat I can to sustain
him, and will advise my friends to
interpose no obstacles In his way.
Thiers is getting old, to be sure, but
he Is well preserved, and has a few
years of usefulness before him yet
Reporter And what Is to become
Rocltefort Oh,lGambetta has a
bright prospect before him. He is
our man by all odds when the
proper time arrives. He is "our
President of the future" when the
Republic becomes auScieaUy e3u-cated'to-ap

THE LANTEBNE AND THE BONA-
Reporter You were first exiled
by Louis Napoleon. How did you
come out of that?
Rochefort I was editor of the
Lanternc. That paper had a circu
lation of over 150,000, and my sat
irical editorials were a terror to the
little nephew of his great uncle. I
was tried and condemned to six
years imprisonment at hard labor,
but I managed to leave France be
fore they could arrest me. They
confiscated my paper, which had
cost me over S100,000, and was
worth half a million.
Reporter I presume you don't
consider the Bonapartists formida
Rochefort The Bonapartists con
trol the French police and a small
portion of the army, but the police
is by no means the country. Their
chances are indeed very slim.
ReporTer What were you con
victed for, and how came you to re
main in Paris, after the fall of the
Rochefort The only crime I
have ever been guilty of, was com
mitted with the pen. I have shed
much ink, but never a drop of blood.
Even during the terrible struggle of
the Commune in Paris, I never did
anything more criminal than using
my pen in advocating what I con
sidered the true principles of Re
publicanism. Why they should
class us journalists among the men
who actually committed murder,
arson, theft, and other crimes. I
Rtporler Have you any appre
hensions that they will seek to re
arrest you under the extradition
Rochefort I don't believe they
would try it either with the United
States, Great Britain, or Switzer
land. I should prefer not to risk
Belgium; the clerical party is too
strong there, and the government
might succumb to pressure.
ROCHEFORT'S FUTURE COURSE.
Reporter Your trip around the
world would make a very romantic
story more soul-stirring even than
some of Victor Hugo's best ro
mances? Rochefort -Yes ; and it is my in
tention to collect these incidents in
a book which I propose to publish
when I return to Europe.
Reporter What is your plan of
future operations, and where do you
propose to locate ?
Rochefort I am going to New
York, where I expect to hold a con
sultation with some friends: I ex.
pect to remain in New York about
a week, and will then sail for Eng
land. My sojourn in England will
depend on circumstances ; but my
intcntentions are to retire to Geneva,
where I can superintend the educa
tion of my children and write my
book. I due time a change will
take place in France and I may be
able to return under a decree of am
nesty. In that event, I shall, of
course, resume my connection with
Reporter Do you intend to stop
over at Chicago ?
Rochefort I don't believe I can
afford to stop. It would disarrange
my programme. The only place in
America I want to see is Niagara
Reporter Rebuilt Chicago is as
much of a world's wonder as Nia
gara, and I should think you would
be glad to avail yourself of the op
portunity to see that great city?
Rochefort I am a child of Na
ture, and I love to gaze upon na
ture's wonders above all other
thiugs, Chicago is undoubtedly a
most remarkable city, but then I
care nothing about big housed and
Reporter Your frankness has
placed me under lasting obligations.

to receive your autograph card.
