THE FATE OF A JUDAS
TRAITOR. DRBYFUS DCGRADED IX
Striiipcd of InsiRTuin. of Hank, His
Sword. Broken, He Was Marched
Bareheaded Before the Throng.
PARIS. Jin. 5. Captain Albert Drey
fus, of the Fourteenth regiment of artil
lery, recently attached to the general
staff of the army, who was tried by court
martial, convicted of treason In disclos
ing important war-office documents to
foreigners, and sentenced to deportation
and imprisonment for life In a fortress,
was publicly degraded this morning In
front of the military school of this city.
Dreyfus turned deathly pale as he signed
the prison register. "When this formality
was gone through, two gendarmes with
revolvers escorted him to a closed mili
tary wagon, in which, surrounded by
guards with drawn swords, Dreyfus was
driven to the military ychool. The route
"was lined by thousands. On arriving at
the school, Dreyfus was placed In an im
provised cell. Detachments from every
branch of the garrison of Paris began as
tembllng in the Place de Fontoye, and by
9 A. 31. fully &O0O troops were ranged
about the quadrangle. At 9 Dreyfus was
conducted to the square and led before
General Darres.in command of the troops,
and the sentence of the court-martial was
road to the prisoner. The general said:
"You are adjudged unworthy to bear
arms. In the name of the French people
I degrade you." General Darrcs gave a
bharp word of command, and a noncom
misaioned officer of the Republican Guard
approached Dreyfus. The infantry pre
sented arms, the cavalry presented swords
aHd there was a long, fcolemn roll from
the massed drum corps. Dreyfus started
back as the noncommissioned officer
touched him, and shouted: "I am inno
cent; I swear it. Vive la France." The
noncommissioned officer then tore off
Dreyfus epaulets and all the distinctive
marks of his rank as a captain of artil
lery, ontling with breaking the prisoner's
eword in two and throwing the two halves
at his feet. Dreyfus was then marched
bare-headed around the entire square, in
front of the troops. He was greatly ex
cited, and bhouted repeatedly: "I am in
nocent: I swear it." But every time the
prisoner spoke, in accordance with the or
ders previously issued, his voice was
drowned by the roll of drums. As Drey
fus passed In front of the place occupied
by representatives of the press, he shout
ed: "Tell the whole of France I am inno
cent." This caused some of the officers of
the army reserve, standing near, to re
tort: "Down with Judas; silence, traitor."
It was evident that Dreyfus felt these
words keenly, for he turned sharply
around and faced the officers in a threat
ening manner: but before he could do or
say anything further he was seised by
the soldiers and forced to continue his
humiliating march around the square.
Tho crowd outside the square, on hearing
the prisoner's voice when he protested
his Innocence, raised fierce cries of
"Death to the traitor." The cries of the
populace were accompanied by the shrill
w.hlstllng peculiar to a Parisian mob.
When the proceedings were ended, Drey
fus was handcuffed, taken to the prison
van and driven to the ordinary prison,
escorted by a. squad of gendarmes, amid
cries of "Death to traitors,"
(The arrest of Alfred Drpvfns in rMn
her last caused a sensation throughout
France and found echo in Berlin which
at one time threatened to have serious
consequences. The assertion that Drey
fus sold the plans of various strongly fir
tltiod places to the German government
has been vigorously denied by the rep
'resentatlves of that nation. Similarly, it
has been claimed and has been denied,
that the plans referred to were sold to
an agent of the German government. The
plans which he is alleged to have dis
closed, include thote relating to the mob
ilization of the French army In case of
war: plans for the mobilization of the
Fifteenth arjny corps, covering the de
partments of the Jlarltime Alps, Ardeche,
Bouohes du Rhone, Corsica, Card, Vas.
Vancleer and Marseilles, as well as the
plans, for mobilization of the French
forces around Briancon, the Alpine Gib
raltar, near the Italian frontier. The
foitross of Brioncon. which is connected
by underground galleries with outlying
fortifications, and with the town itself,
is a most important place, in view of the
possibility of an invasion of France upon
the part of Italy.
Dreyfus is of Jewish-Alsatian extrac
tion. He was born in 1S5S, at Mulhous,
where his brothers own a large cotton
spinning factory. It is qxpected that
Dreyfus will be confined in the Isle du
Salut, oft the coast of French Guinea,
South America, which is a French penal

LONDON, Jan. 5. Professor James
Bryce, in a speech at Darwent last even
ing, struck the keynote of liberal protest
against the clamor of the labor party for
an Inoreased labor representation in par
liament, with a socialist platform. There
was no objection, he said, to there being
more genuine workingmen in parliament,
but he denounced these so-called labor ad
vooatos who were continually stirring up
diss hostilities and avowing their desire
to smash the liberal party into small
fragments, unless their demands were

Ben Tillett has raised a howl that the
dock laborers, of which branch of labor
unionism he is the leader, are being
crushed because the public will not re

certainly suffering, but their sufferings
are caused by the prevailing hard times
rim a surfeit of TiHettism. In the mean
time. Tillett himself is thriving. He has
recently built a villa which cost 3000. and
evinces other evidences of nrosperity.
The adherents of the Due d'Orleans in
London are in expectation that their
leader will, at an oarly date, issue a mani
festo, whtch will be followed by a demon
stration on French soil, at the risk of his
arrest. Faith in this movement is based
upon the belief, that the people of France
have become disgusted with the corrup
tion existing among the politicians and
journalists of the repubMc. and are fast
turning towards a monarchy for relief.

FOTDEE OF GERMANY
THE VIEW OF THE PRESS IS XOT
A CHEERFUL OXE.
Emperor William's Abnormal Bump
of Sovereignty Makes a. Constitu
tional Conflict Seem Unavoidable.
BERLIN, Jan. 5. It is a significant fact
that the majority of the New Year's day
articles in the newspapers reviewing the
political situation were pessimistic in tone,
expressing grave doubts regarding Ger
many's future. For instance, the Reichs
bote, the conservative organ, deplores
Germany's waning influence abroad, and
wishes Prince Bismarck back at the helm
again. The Hamburger Nachrichten criti
cized the colonial and foreign policy of
the past year as being vacillating and
devoid of vigor. The most sensational
article, however, appeared in the Volks
Zcituiiff, the main organ of the central
party, which in the present session of
the reichstag is again a decisive factor.
After mentioning the feeling of uneasi
ness and uncertainty as to the future,
due, it was added, to the instability of
the governmental machine, the article
"Emperor William II is, no doubt,
a highly gifted monarch, with the best
of intentions, but, in his abnormally de
veloped feeling of sovereignty, he induces
responsible statesmen to disappear more
and more from view, more than we have
been accustomed to, and takes the initia
tive in a field In which the sovereign has
hitherto not interfered. At all events.
the changing of decisions in high places
renders it difficult to determine, with a
reasonable amount of certainty, what
policy is to be pursued, and induce the be
lief that the present course will not be
adhered to for long."
Later on, the article speaks of the
Eulenburg dynasty, and says:
"Count Botho Eulenburg planned a coup
d'etat, and he is probably destined to be
the successor of the present chancellor."
The opinion is expressed that a con
stitutional conflict is unavoidable. These
utterances, coming fiom the lending
mouthpieces of the most powerful parlia
mentary party, are highly significant.
Some of the leading Berlin newspapers,
notably the Vossichc Zeltung and the
National Zeltung, speak very bluntly
about the autocratic manner in which the
emperor had the district around the royal
castle blocked against nil traffic during
the court ceremonies New Year's day.
The National Zeitung, commenting upon
"The streets of Berlin belong to the
Berlin people. This people was recognized
by the police during the time of William
I, and it is time this people should again
Respecting the alleged utterances of
Emperor William New Year's day, the
Schlessich Zeitung today declares, au
thoritatively, that the report that the
emperor delivered a political speech is
"pure invention," adding:
"He did not make the slightest refer
ence to politics. His few words related
entirely to military matters."
Tho reichstag will resume work Tues
day. The opening business will be the
first reading of the anti-socialist bill,
which went over tho holidays for lack of
a quorum of the Iiougc The beginning
of the struggle is viewed with general ap
prehension. Tho emperor called, unan
nounced, on Chancellor Prince Hohenlohe
in the Wilhelm strasse yesterday, and re
mained for breakfast. Later the minis
ters were summoned to the chancellory
There was a full discussion of the anti
socialist bill and the parliamentary tac
tics to be used In pushing it to the .final
vote. It is understood that the ministers
decided not to amend the bill before the
committee stage. The government now
acts as if confident that the measure will
be carried without important changes.
Among the deputies and parliamentary
officials interest centers in the expected
attack upon Herr von Levetzow, presi
dent of the reichstag. Although he has
been a good executive, he has earned tho
dislike of the deputies on the left by
strutting in his military uniform on all
public occasions, and by bowing rather
humbly to the young emperor's beck and
nod. He also hurt himself with the
national liberals by refusing to do any
thing with the Bismarck monument fund,
of which he is the chief trustee, as long
as the emperor and Bismarck were out.
The radicals and social democrats, who
will lead the coming attack, will base
their case on the ground that the presi
dent compromised his position by trying
to force the debate on the anti-socialist
bill and by voting to prosecute Deputy
Llebknecht against the wishes of the ma
jority. A leading Bismarckian paper calls
upon him to resign. A bad feature of this
muss is that the emperor's ministers are
determined to defend Levetzow to the last
ditch. The president himself is willing
enough to leave, as he does not care to
increase the irritability of the reichstag
and complicate the tangle in which the
proceedings opened. But he has been
powerless to act, since the cabinet and
the extreme tory deputies have come pug
naciously to his support.
Emperor William, on New Year's even
ing, received a visit from Prince Hohen
lohe, and it is understood they discussed
the South German situation, the approach
ing visit of Prince von Hohenlohe to
Prince Bismarck, and the measures to
be taken in order to pass the anti-socialist
bill through the reichstag. In connec
tion with the anti-socialist bill, the Aror
waorts, the organ of the socialists, which
has become notorious for obtaining and
publishing secret official documents,
Thursday last, published a circular,
marked "confidential," issued by the pres
idents of the-' provinces to the police and
civil authorities. Instructing them to sup
press, on the slightest pretext, meetings
held to protest against the anti-socialist
bill. The socialists are now sending to the
local leaders of their party warnings how
to avoid the seizure of compromising
papers, and how to cope with the police
in the event of the anti-socialist bill be
coming a law.
There is no sign of a. better feeling be
tween Berlin and the provincial capitals.
The friendly telegrams exchanged osten
tatiously by the emperor and the king
of Wurtemburg are regarded as written
for appearances only. The proposed re
forms of the military code have been
dropped, as Prussia refuses to make con
cessions to the liberal spirit of Bavaria
and Wurtemburg's military laws. The
latter refuses to repeat the law granting
army trials by jury and other advantages
to the accused, which conflict with the
secret methods prevailing in Prussia.
The cordial manner in which Emperor
William greeted United States Ambassa
dor Runyan at the reception of the diplo
matic corps, was generaly remarked. The
emperor warmly shook hands with Mr.
Runyon. and returned the felicitations of
the day in the purest English, on behalf
of himself and the whole country, coup
ling these expressions with wishes for
the continuance of the welfare of the

carelessness of the train dispatcher, C.
R. Sims, who d'spatched the Los Angeles
express thain from Tracy, when it was
bound to be in collision with the work
train coming from the opposite direction.
The mistake was discovered when it was
too late, and all the division officials at
this point could do was to stand at the

ABOUT THE RAILROADS.
Another Case of Mahomet and the
CHICAGO. Jan. 5. As the Canadian Pa
cific has refused to come to the meeting
of the Western and transcontinental
roads, now being held here, Chairman
Caldwell was today ordered by the gen
eral managers to leave for Montreal to

held in that city Monday, with the Grand

A Blow at Labor Organizations.
OMAHA, Jan. 5. A local paper declares
there is very good reason to believe that
the anti-pass rule recently enacted iby the
railroad managers is intended for'ariUMw
at railroad labor organizations more than
for any other purpose. Its belief is
strengthened by information received
from Cedar Rapids and Vinton, Iowa,
respectively the headquarters of the rail
road telegraphers and railway conductors.
This information bears the dismal intel
ligence that the grand officers are utterly
unable -to make arrangements for their an
nual passes used in their work about the
country. The amount of travel performed
by the grand officers of railroad organiz
ations will foot up into hundreds of thou
sands of miles annually to each order.
They are on the move continually, settling

ment of Morgan Hill, alleging the mis
management of the estate of Sarah Al
thea Terry, whose guardian he was. Ashe
denies that he mismanged Mrs. Terry's
estate or sold personal property belong
ing thereto and converted the proceeds to
his own pocket, or violated his oath and
duty under the law of California, or
neglected to take care of his ward and
provide her with the necessaries of life
and proper medical attendance. The fea
tures of Ashe's statement are as follows:
"To recapitulate, to notice some Inci
dents which led to Mrs. Terry's unfor
tunate mental condition is like stabbing
the dead. I had hoped that the last act
in her dramatic career had ended, but
this man Williams has raised her from
her legal grave and 'attempted, with the
aid of her brother, to vent his vengeance
and spite. His unwarrantable acts force
me, in justice to myself, to show to the
public who has been her good and true
friend Thomas H. Williams, her brother,
Morgan Hill, or myself. I was not in
California when the murder was com
mitted, which I since believe unhinged
this poor woman's already tottering rea
son. Had I been, I would have prosecuted
the murderer when on trial in the United
States court, and I would have cross
examined Judge Field when he appeared
as chief witness in his behalf.
"Did Thomas H. Williams or Morgan
Hill move in the matter? Did either of
them try to avenge Terry's death by
bringing the murderer to the bar of jus
tice? When a prejudiced press was heap
ing calumny on a man so misrepresented,
so little understood, did either of these
so-called friends of the slandered dead
raise his voice in his behalf? Was it not
I who had to rush into the breach and
call down upon my head the wrath of the
dead man's enemies because I told the
truth about Field's old political enmity
toward Terry. Was it not I who had to
stand the villiflcation of Judge Field until
Terry's posthumuous letter, made public
by the Hon. Zach Montgomery, completely
vindicated me and showed that it was not
I who lied?
"Upon my return to California I did
everything in my power toward helping
the widow arrange her husband's affairs.
When her allowance was stopped she had
absolutely no income, no real property.
If Williams or Hill went to her assistance
then I am completely in ignorance of the
fact. I do know that ever since she has
been financially distressed and in need
that her brother refused her assistance
to buy the necessaries of life. I have
mailed letters, written by her to him at
my solicitation, and have read his churl
ish refusals. At last she became my ab
solute charge. I furnished her with
money to go to Arizona and prosecute
her legal battles there. I, .time and again,
advanced her money to redeem jewels she
had pawned to pay for her sustenance.
When the United States court punished
her for an offense for which she had al
ready been terribly punished, did Williams
go to her assistance? Did he interest
himself in her or provide any of the
sinews of war? The daily papers recorded
the fact that I was there day after day
watching and guarding her interests and
helping her make her defense. At the
request of Judge Levy, the superior judge
who committed her. I consented to act
as guardian of her estate and person
after Thomas H. Williams, who swears
that he is her old and personal friend,
her next friend, absolutely refused to
serve and would only promise to see that
the brother would relieve me upon his
arrival from his Paris home. Relying
upon the promises by him in New York,
and further promises of Williams that he
would make him keep his word, I pre
sented my petition for guardianship with
great misgivings, knowing well the ill
fate that has befallen everybody con
nected with this remarkable woman and
her case, save her brother, who Is a
brilliant exemplification of the old saying:
" 'He who fight and runs away, may live
to fight another day.'
"Immediately after her commitment, I
had her property in Fresno and San Fran
cisco appraised by appraisers duly ap
pointed by court. Her personal property
was appraised a3 being worth ?6D51. Some
few months previously Mrs. Terry had
voluntarily deeded me her Fresno prop
erty to secure payment of certain moneys
I had from time to time given her. As J
had never regarded this In the light of a
loan, and never asked for a scratch of a
pen in evidence therefor, I was surprised,
and begged her to reconvey the property,
but when I saw I would deeply offend
her by so doing, I allowed the title to the
property to stand in my name. When the
Inventory was taken in Fresno I explained
the condition of the property to the men
appointed to appraise her Fresno belong
ings, and put them in the appraisement,
as held by me lit trust for her, though the
deed to me was absolute on its face. Her
equity m this property was appraised as
being worth $4000. so her whole estate was
i appraised as being worth JIO.JGL This is
Monday we again start the hall
a-rolling. We have been very busy the
last week rearranging the stock of
Kohn's, now in the hands of a trustee,
after the holidays, and find we have a
lot of odds and ends in our clothing and
furnishing goods stock. We are going
and ends out this week. The prices we
goods are bound to sell them. What we
the vast estate which I am accused of
having been splurging on the last two or
three years under the guise of a mill
ionaire. I filed the appraisements and se
cured an order to sell enough personal
property, enumerated, to pay the expenses
of administration, certain just claims
against the estate and the cost 'of reno
vating the premises. I sold a part of the
property, and shall file in court my state
ment showing how I expended the pro
ceeds. The statement will be a public doc
ument and open for the inspection of ail
"If I have erred in my management of
Mrs. Terry's estate and person, it is due
to my overzealousness in trying to force
an unwilling brother to support his insane
sister, and allow the little estate she has
left to be applied to the part payment of
the debts she had contracted to pay for
her sustenance and the defense of her
good name. Never for one moment have
I been neglectful of her estate and person.
It was the desire of the judge who com
mitted her, of friends of her dead husband,
and it was my wish, that she might never
again be before the public, but allowed
to remain buried quietly in her legal
grave; but Williams, aided by her broth
er, has paraded this demented woman's
life again before an uncharitable world. So
let the sin be upon their shoulders. Their
action has made it plain to me that I can
be of no further service to my dead
friend's widow; to the woman I had prom
ised him I would befriend and protect to
the best of my power, should he be called
away. I am advised by the physicians at
the asylum, that Mrs. Terry will never re
gain her reason, so that all that is left to
care for Is the money her .husband so con-1
temptuously cast on the sod wheniie
faced Senator Broderlck on the duelling
field. Again and again has he told me he
would not touch a cent of Sharon's money
should he recover millions. He fought
for her honor, and I feel he would not
have me enter a bickering lawsuit with
her brother over a few worthless trifles.
I would go on to the end serving her did
I not think that her best interests would
be subserved by the appointment of Will
iams as permanent guardian of her es
tate and person, believing he is the one
man who can make the brother support
an insane sister during the rest of her life
and prevent her from going to a dishon
ored grave, a state charge. I shall peti
tion the superior court of San Francisco
to be allowed to resign my guardianship,
and that Williams, 'her old and personal
friend, her next friend, the intimate friend
of her brother,' be made permanent guar
dian of the estate and person of Sarah
Althea Terry, an insane person."
NEW YORK'S REFORM.
No Action Taken as Yet Upon Byrnes
NEW YORK, Jan. 5. Mayor Strong had
another busy day today. During the
afternoon Superintendent Byrnes, ex
Mayor Gilroy, and Mayor Schleren, of
Brooklyn, called to see him. Superin
tendent Byrnes entered the city hall by
the basement door and reached the
mayor's private office by the Infrequently
used private staircase. He was conducted
to the private office, where the mayor
joined him. They were in consultation for
half an hour. The impression at first pre
vailed that Mayor Strong had accepted
Superintendent Byrnes' resignation. This
meant that the mayor had forwarded the
resignation to the police board, with the
erquest that it be accepted. Mayor Strong
afterward denied that the subject of Mr.
Byrnes' resignation had been touched
upon. He added:
"I sent for Superintendent Byrnes in
reference to some complaints I had re
ceived about two policemen. We did not
talk of his letter of resignation. Mayor
Schlerer called on me in reference to op
posing the gr3ater New York bill pend

hasty action, and I agree with him. T

the advisability of establishing a compe

matters of municipal administration
through a standing committee. This is

committee approved the mayor's power of
