Rennes France aug. 23.�?maitre la Bori had a Day at the Lychee where Captain Alfred Dreyfus is standing trial charge treason. Labor did what people had expected. He galvanized the dormant defense into an Active living thing. M. Demange is conciliatory. He has always seemed to fear to tread the military Corn. Labor is a Gladiator and always Speaks to touch his foe to the Quick. Let there be the slightest opening in his adversary a defense and he thrusts Home. When m. Demange found nothing to ask a witness m. La Boris Quick Eye had discovered weak spots and he came Forward with searching questions. He opened with an eloquent speech and the audience could have listened for an hour to his Rich melodious voice modulated tones and the impassioned outbursts accompanied by energetic and speaking gestures. Labori cornered Mercier the Schneider letter which the latter had used in evidence and which colonel Schneider had repudiated As a forgery. The general was surprised when Labori suddenly demanded that Mercier be recalled. Evidently he hoped the tribunal would support him in refusing to explain How he got a copy a letter which was a later Date than his incumbency at the ministry War. But Labori was not to be denied. He insisted that Mercier should give some explanation. Then after hesitating Mercier declared that he would assume All the responsibility attaching to i Possession the document. This As Labori intended it should be was a demonstration communication by the general staff part at least the secret dossier to an Ordinary Soldier such As Mercier became immediately leaving the ministry War. When Labori had attained his object and forced a confession grave violation Law he gave a smile grim satisfaction and then added significantly a i shall have Ether questions to put to general the scene was highly dramatic and made a profound impression upon ail the spectators. General Mercier must now be very miserable for As the result this admission and with the additional charge communicating secret documents to the court martial 1894, he is liable to arrest at any moment. Indeed some people think it is not impossible that he it will be lying in the military prison adjoining the Ceil Captain Dreyfus before the week is out. Another series questions put by m. Labori concerned la Jour a spy formerly in the secret service a the French War office but packed off to South America according to various military witnesses because he proved a swindler. I abort asked How it was if that were so that la Jour was still receiving monthly payments. Commandant Rollin completely taken Aback replied that a cessation payments was under consideration. The impression conveyed by Laboris questions and the replies Given was that la Jour was being paid by the War office to keep out the Way in the interests Esterhazy whom la Cux in a letter read in court offering reve lations in the Dreyfus affair indicated As the real traitor. M. Laboris Cross examination in this matter therefore was a distinct advantage to the accused. M. Labori announced that he intended to recall several witnesses who had made depositions during his absence. This Means that Mercier Roget and others will be put to the test a severe Cross examination. To his friends m. Labori has expressed himself confident being Able to tear to pieces the evidence these generals have Given so confidently before a sympathetic tribunal. Captain drcyfu3 pursued the attitude he recently took up and replied to the statements hostile witnesses with arguments and the presentation counter facts Only once giving Way to his feelings and offering a cry p test. This was at the conclusion colonel Bert in a deposition when with broken voice the accused declared his love France and the arty. A yes a he cried a i ice France and i love my country but it is with sentiments different from these animating them who come Here today to testify against colonel Schneider the austrian military attache has arrived at his embassy he e. The officials the embassy declare that the attache will say nothing regarding the letter incident until the l Seyfus ecu martial is conclude. <3. Market reports. Grain and Stock prices for aug.
