reports. We have no better
items to note.
The trial at Rennes looks quite
unfavorable for Dreyfus and
sickening enough to lovers- of
justice. Nothing more firmly
fix s the conviction in the ordi
nary mind that Dreyfus is inno
cent than the bearing of the
court. From dispatches it is
quite apparent that the court is
determined on reconvicting the
prisoner. There is clearly a
disposition to admit the flimsiest
evidence against him and cut off
his able covnsel from everystrong
Ioint of defense possible. The
German government will consent
for the deposition of Schwartz
koppn nd the Italian govern
ment that of Panizzardi to be
taken but even this is denied the
defense. Surely this trial will
stand out in history as un
precedented in its mockery of
justice and a stain on the honor
of the French military regime.
The trial is expected to end
about next Monday. The hope
oi justice has ended already.
It seems that the shooting at
Greenville by Sheppard with in
tent to kill U. S. District Attor
ney Bernard has scandal at the
bottom of it regardless of what
the attorney would have the pub
lic believe. There's no mitigation
of his crime and yet it occurs to
the thinking mind that it took
two to ruin that home if it was
The prospects of war between
England and the Transvaal grow
more and more threatening. It
even seems inevitable. It seems
foolhardy for the Boers to go in
to a war but still they seem to
be going to risk fighting awhile.
Peace can always be made when
one side is pretty thoroughly
whipped, as in our late experi
ence with Spain.
Apropos to our remarks on
the improvement of the Evening
News, Editor Dowd is good
enough to say :
"The Standard itself has made
a number of marked improve
ments, and fills its field well."
If the News sees from an im
partial standpoint the consuma
tion of our highest ambition it
does us a great kindness in sav
Dispatches say that ex-Gov.
Brown has propesad to Gv,
Goebol that he (Brown) and all
the - ticket will withdraw if ho
(Goebel) and all his ticket will do
the same. -He proposes to call
a ' new convention and make up
an entirely new ticket. This
may have the appearance of
fairness iri the7 interest of
Democratic harmony in Ken
tucky, but it hardly seems that
any xme wduld ' expect the men
nominated in-regular convention
to withdraw. It would be a
precedent at least for defeated
aspirants to run as independents
and then withdraw on condition
that the successful candidate be
also deprived of the fruits of
victory and the people be com
pelled; to nominate a second or
third- choice. ; - Victory under
such circumstances is hardly
preferable to straightout defeat
and its effects would doubtless be
harder to recover from.

We have at last lit upon some
words from Capt. Carter, of the
U. S. A. Engineer Corps, who is
in disgrace, but whom the late
diases indicate "was more sinned
against than sinning.
inti-wifv nven the
Journal he says :
"Even were I free to do so, I
should not answer the many
malicious falsehoods almost daily
sent broadcast from the bureau
of my enemies in Washington,
since no one has had the man
hood or courage to father them,
but T shall be Had to have made
j public the evidence of friend and
foe alike. It all proves inno
cence. "Being, however, an officer of
the United States army, awaiting
the promulgation of the pro
ceedings of a court martial before
which I was tried, it is manifest
ly improper for me to give any
interview, so 'that I cannot now
give to you the convincing proofs
of my absolute innocence as de
veloped oniny trial.
"Those proofs appear, it seems
to mo, so clearly in the record of
that trial and are so vividly set
forth in the briefs of my counsel,
each of which refers to the rec
ord in such a manner that any
statement therein may be veri
fied, that a study of that record
or those briefs will present more
forcibly than I could speak (even
were I at liberty to do so) the
great demonstrated truth that
every act of mine was honest.
"My works were conducted to
successful conclusion for less
than the estimated cost, at prices
below the average of those paid
at other places on the Atlantic
and G ulf coasts from Virginia to
"The testimony of every able,
disinterested engineer,- civil or
military, who appeared before
the court, demonstrated beyond
question that my works were
conducted honestly and efficient
ly and the evidence further de
monstrated that not only . was
nothing whatever lost' to 'the
government, but that at Savan
nah alone a saving of more than
one million of dollars was effect
ed by the manner in which those
works were executed by me.
"Referring to my private let
ters, all of which were seized
and published more than a year
and a half ago, and which are
now being reprinted, the most
recent one i(1891) was dated five
years before the appropriation
was made for the works concern
the misconduct of which I was
tried, and long before even the
project for that improvement
had entered the mind of any one.
"It is therefore evident that
none of those letters has any
bearing whatever on the charges
on which I was tried. The evi
dence shows that every letter
written to or received from either
of the contractors was written
not only long ago, but that they
related to matters in which the
government had no interest
whatever, and that in no single
instance did I receive one penny
or any other benefit whatever
from anything suggested in those
