the Dreyfus rerdict and the ebbing
lorce or noer resistance to British de
mands, supported by an army of 25,000
men, which can be readily increased to
40,000. The commercial movement for
boycotting the French exposition is
steadily gaining Impetus and Is good
proof that moral England has ceased
to be a sheepkeeplng station. Alarm
ing rumors from South Africa have not
created any undue excitement, either
in the stock exchange or the govern

at Havana. After the paper had been

Root disposed of it with the following

In response to the request of the
World correspondent for an opinion re
garding the Dreyfus Verdict, Michael
Davitt wires as follows:.
"The comments of the American and
English press upon the result of the
trial at Rennes ore a greater outrage
on Justice than Is the condemnation of
Dreyfus, even if he Is Innocent. It is
a moral assassination of a nation, for
the action of the court-martial, had
Dreyfus been a poor man, would have
exolted no sympathy In London or New

world works itself Into a hypocriti
