VOL. LXXIII. The French press is showing a more conciliatory tone regarding Fashoda. apparently with a view to preparing the public mind for the recall of the -It Marchand expedition. o-- The navy department received a dis- patch from San Juan, on the 24th, slat- tng that the evacuation of Porto Ilico had been completed by the sailing of 4 the last detachment of Spanish troops on that day. Most of the Paris papers approve the decision of the eourl of cassation, authorizing revision of the Dreyfus ease, although the Gaulois and the Eclair declare that even now revision $ is by no means certain. A sensation was caused ill Ponce, P. R., on the 29th. on the arrival of the :Red D steamer Philadelphia from the Spanish main, by tile discovery in tile handbags of Two passengers of a mas- her of explosive cartridges containing dynamite. A cablegram received at the navy de- partment, on the 31st. announced the arrival at Bahia. Brazil, of the battle- ships Oregon and lawn. They were 19 days from Tompkinsville, making an exceptionally smoolh and rapid run down the coast. The Civil Service Reform league has sent a letter to the president, express- ing its hope that he will not, as re- ported in the public press, withdraw a number of places now filled by civil- service method from the scope of the civil-service rules. A dispatch from Manzanillo says: "Lieut. Young has formally claimed, ou behalf of the United States navy, the wrecks of the Spamsh gunboats that went'ashore or were sunk by the United States gunboats in the memo- table engagement of Manzanillo on July 12" Word has reached the interior de- partment of trouble lhreatened by a band of young Sioux, on the Pine Ridge agency, in South Dakota. who are reported to have started an or- ganized movement for the forcible re- moval of Indian Agen$ Ch:pp from the reservation. l)uring a sever storm, on tbe nighl of the 29th. a small area, half a mile square, around Denmark IIill.

The whole Japanese cabinet has re- signed, the nfinistry heing usable to agree upon the question of filling the portfolio of education. Thus the first, attempt at party government in Japan has proved a failure. ]t is probable the next cal/inet will bc a talition of liberals and clan leaders. The Paris newspapers are ,_harply divided into two camps, one of them highly praising M. Bard's report to the court of cassation as clearly setting forth the truth amt proving the innocence of Dreyfus, and the oth- er insisting that the report was mere- [y a pleading ill favor of the prisoner. While Vice-President IIobart was being driven down Broad street in Philadelphia, on the 27th, the team be- came frigthcned and ran away. After several blocks had been traversed by the unmanageable horses, alley were finally halted by a plucky policeman, amid the cheers of thousands of on- lookers. The Acme Wrecking Co., of San Francisco. has made a request upon the navy department for authority to raise the battleship Maine. The com- pany has had experience in raising vessels on the Pacific coast, and rep- resentations have been made to the flepartment as to its ability to accom- plish the task in lIavana harbor. The mobilizatio; of the troops at Halifax, N. S., took place, on the 27th when every available man in tim gar- risen was mustered iu full marching order. The militia regiments joined with the regulars in the maneuvers. Attacks by land ad sea were made on the city and repelled. All the forts guarding the harbor were manned. The recent wholesale emigration of Indigent Jamaieans to the island of Cuba has evoked a potest from the American authorities at Santiago and the local government there issued a memorandum, on the 28th, quoting the protest of the American officials and warning the British subjects not to proceed to Cuba without adequate means of support. The news that the Spanish peace commissioners at Paris had referred to their government a formal demand of the American commissioners for the at)solute cession of the entire Philip- pine group, caused the greatest sur- prise in Madrid on the 31st. The strongest feeling prevailed that the government should protest energeti- cally against what is regarded as a violation of the spirit of the protocol. Gen.Kitchener arrived in London, on the 27th, and was greeted by the con> mander-in-chtef of the British forces, Gun. Lord Wolseley, and other high nfilitary cfficers. The grenadiers formed a guard of honor at the rail- road station, and Gen. Kitchener re- ceived an ovation from the enormous throngs of people assembled to wel- come him back from Egypt. The scene of enthusiasm was almost un- 1;recedented. WOODVILLE, MISS., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1898. i NOVEMBER--1898. : M0n. Tue. Wed.iThur.[ Frl.

DREYFUS. lle Court of Cassatlon Obtains the MeN| Absolute Control ()ver the Uele- bruted Case. Paris, Oct. 31. By Saturday's dcci- don the court of cassation obtains the mosl absolnte control over th( Dreyfus case. It can denmnd and ex amine any documents whatever, in- chiding the dossier, of any case bear- ing upon the Dreyfus matter, and can examine under oath ally witness, how- ever high his position. In short, if the court makes a sin- cere use of its powers, the truth will have a much better chance of being discovered than would have been the cae had it merely ordered revision be- fore another court-martial, whose members might have been actuated by a desire to shield the general staff. tIaving concluded ts inquiry, it can present a new dossier to either a civil or a military court for tha final deci- sion. Its proceedings will not be pub- lic, and there can, therefore, be no oh- jeetion to a comlnumcation to it of the alleged secret dossier, if this is still in existence, while the numerous generals who have expressed their be- lief in the guilt of Dreyfus will now be called upon to explain the grounds of their convictions.
