The lading out of the eulclde'e corpse
took place before 'Mme. Henry nnd the child
arrived at * Valerlen. The room had bean

L.H Is .now .Insinuated Jhat the sul-
Ido of Lieutenant Colonel Henry , the
chief of 'tho Intelligence department of
the French ministry for war , was connived
at by the French army authorities. In any
case , the suicide occurred shortly after the
prisoner had received a visit from an
officer of the general staff , who , on leav
ing , ordered the sentry on duty before
Colonel Henry's place of confinement not to
disturb the prisoner , as ho had a lot of
work to do. It Is recalled that a similar
opportunity to commit suicide was afforded
to Dreyfus , who , however , declined to profit
It Is generally believed that the rest ot
the general staff of the French army will
follow the example of General BoUdeffre ,
the chief of staff , and of General Gonso , the
under chief , and tender their resignations.
It appears that the minister for war ,
M. Cavalgnac , Is convinced that Colonel
Henry had accomplices In the forgery of
the Incriminating document and there are
persistent reports that Colonel Paty du Clam
will shortly bo arrested. In this connection
It Is reported that the minister ot justice ,
M. Sarrlen , has already take.n steps to
grant Dreyfus a retrial.
M. Emllc Zola , in his famous "I accuse"
letter , which led to his trial and conviction
on the thnrgo of libeling military officers ,
said : \
I accuse Lieutenant Colonel Paty du Clam
ot having been the diabolical worker of a
judicial error , unconsciously , I am ready to
believe , and of having then defended his
nefarious doings for the past three years
by the most absurd and culpable machina
tions. I accuse General Mercter ( who was
minister for war when Dreyfus was tried ) , of
being the accomplice , at least through weak
intelligence , in the greatest Iniquity of 'the
century. I accuse General Billet ( minister
for war during the late Dreyfus agitation ) ,
of having In his hands the certain proofs of
the Innocence of Dreyfus and having sup
pressed them , thus having rendered himself
guilty of treason against humanity and Jus
tice , for a political reason , and In order to
saye the compromised staff. I accuse General - '
eral BolsdoKre , ( the chief ot the general
staff ) , and General Gonse , ( the assistant
chief ot the general staff ) , of being the ac
complice In the same crime , the one through
religious animosity , doubtless , the other
perhaps through the esprit de corps which
makes the war office a sacred and unassail
I accuse General do Pollleux and Major
Ilavary of having made u flagitious Investi
gation , whereby I mean an inquiry of the
moat monstrous partiality. I accuse the
three cxpertu In handwriting , the men Bcl-
homme , Varlnard and Couard , of having
drawn up false and fraudulent reports un
less a medical examination shall prove them
to bo victims ot a disease of sight or judg
ment. I accuse the officers of the war
office of having organized a press campaign
In order to lead public opinion astray.
Finally , I accuse the first court-martial of
having condemned a man on a document
kept secret , and I accuse the second court-
martial of having covered thlt Illegality by
order , and ot committing In Its turn the
judicial crime of knowingly acquitting a
After a long trial In February last M.
Zola was sentenced to ono year's Imprison *
ment and to pay a fine ot 3,000 francs for
these alleged libels , and M. Parreux , man
ager of the Aurore , was sentenced to four
months' Imprisonment and to pay 3,000
francs fine. On his way to and from the
court bouse during the trial M. Zola was
Continually hooted bv mobs and. at .Its con-
i clutlon narrowly escaped personal violence.

siderable popularity by his attitude In
detente of the nrmy during the Zola trial
and at ono tlmo was looked upon aa possibly
aiming at a military dictatorship ,
Prince Henry of Orleans , who Is credited
with hoping for a military movement
against the French republic , also tried to
make capital out oC the trial. Ho showed
hlnuclf dally In ( ho hall of the court house
nnd ono day embraced Major Eetcrhazy , an
other ofthe French officers Implicated In
the scandal , crying : "Vivo 1'armee , " which
aroused enthusiasm among hU Orlcanlst
friends , but which did not otherwise excite
the crowd present to any degree.
The medical examination made of the re
mains of the late Colonel Henry shows that
death was Instantaneous.

at Havre this afternoon.

CLEVELAND , Sept. 1. President McKln-
ley and party left Cleveland for Canton this
morning on a special train on the Cleveland
Terminal & Valley railway. A small crowd
assembled to see the party off.
It has been supposed that the president
might return to Ohio next week to attend
the Gtand Army of tbo Republic reunion nt
Cincinnati , but It was definitely announced
today that his official duties In connection
with the peace negotiations will prevent
him from so doing. The members of the
peace commission arc duo In Paris to meet
the Spanish commissioners October 1. It
will bo necessary for them to leave , there
fore , about September 15 , and hence there
la only a short time between now and then
for them to arrange their own affairs for
their protracted absence and to confer with
the president regarding the negotiations.
So far as could be ' learned today" the
president does not contemplate any change
In tl e plans announced , heretofore covering
his movements for the balance of the present
week. Ho expects now to bo at Montauk
Point oa Saturday next.
CANTON , 0. , Sept. 1. A grand demon
stration occurred here In honor of "President
McKlnloy and Secretary of State Day. Out
of respect for the president's expressed wish
that his present visit bo Informal the affair
was to a considerable extent unorganized
and partook largely of the nature of a spon
taneous outburst of enthusiasm. The people
ple of the community turned out en masse
and from tho'dcpot 'to ' the Barber residence ,
where the McKlnleys arc the guests of Mrs.
McKInley's Bister , the streets were bright
and gay with flags and other displays of the
national colors. The arrival was so near
the noon hour that employes of many fac
tories succeeded In securing an early shut
down and joined the throng about the sta
tion. President and Mrs. McKlnley were
driven direct to 'the ' Barber home , where
their stay of a few hours was shorn of all
Between 4 and G o'clock they boarded a
special train , on the Pennsylvania line nnd
proceeded eastward. J. Webb C. Hayes , as
well as Colbqel and Mrs , . Myron 'Herrlck ,
were of. the castboimd party leaving here.
The cheers and 'the ' shouts of enthusiastic
Cdntonlaus which welcomed President Mc
Klnley and party la Canton this' mo'rnlng
were more than duplicated In bidding them
farewell. The old reception committee and
the old Canton troop of horsemen so con
spicuous In the campaign which made Mc
Klnley president acted as escort to the de
parting train aa well as from the arriving
train. The hour of depariure , C 'o'clock to
night , made It possible for even a larger
number of people to gather at the station
to witness the departure , and there- was
such cheering and enthusiasm as has not
been manifested In Canton In many a day
from about the railroad grounds and the
The president seemed to greatly appre
ciate the greetings of his old neighbors and
friends , and just as the train was starting
ho stepped upon the rear platform to say
a few words to them. He had only time to
say : "It always gives mo pleasure to see
you , and It Is always with regret that I
leave you. " This sentiment was greeted
with cheers and before the president could
say more the throttle of the engine was
opened and the train was away.
During the afternoon President McKlnley
walked unattended about the streets about
his old home , calling upon some of his old
neighbors. Much of the afternoon he spent
on the broad porch of the old Snxton home
stead , which tor BO many years was his
Canton home. The president shook hands
with and greeted hundreds of his old
friends. At the same time Mrs. McKlnley
was Informally entertaining many of her
old friends in the house , now occupied by
her sister , Mrs. M. C. Barber.
Among those who called upon the presi
dent was a number of soldiers In the vol
unteer service lately returned from Cuba ,
of whom Canton furnished some300 or 400.
The happy faces as 'they ' were greeted by
the president showed how pleased they were
to meet their Commander-in-chief.
The latter part of the afternoon carrlagee
were called and the president and1 Mrs. Mc
Klnley drove to Wesleyan cemetery to visit
the graves of their two children , burled
three years ago , and of the president's
mother , who was laid to rest last winter.
WASHINGTON , Sept. 1. It Is under
stood here that President McKlnley will
spend the day In New York tomorrow ,
though as he desires to avoid attracting at
tention his movements are not to bo made
public In advance. Ho will be joined by
Secretary Algor at Camp Wlkoff Saturday
morning and will then proceed to Inspect
the camp unofllclally. Secretary Alger will
return to Washington Sunday afternoon and ,
possibly the president will do the samo.

Shortly after the arrival of this Intelli
gence came the following dispatch to the
Associated Press from Nazey Island , dated
August 30 and forwarded by messenger from
camp at the front to Nazey :
"There have been glimpses of the enemy ,
during the last few days and the first
skirmish took place today , when an ad
vance guard of cavalry located a large body
of 'the ' dervishes nt a supposed outpost near
Kerrerrl , about eight miles north of Om
durman. The enemy showed a disposition
to fight , beating war drums and displaying
battle bunting. The Mantmorency troop
emptied a few dervish saddles and three
gunboats steamed up the river In front of
the town and shelled the dervish position.
The army's loss could not bo ascertained , as
the dervishes were In a hollow , but fleeing
troops could bo distinctly seen. The nrmy

The facts developed show a systematic

alleging wrongful dealing on the part of
many bidders. The reports Indicate that
millions ot dollars In bonds were acquired
