 THE LAW AND THE LAW COURTS  Sinclair Found Guilty.  The heaving of tlie case of Regina  vs.  Sinclair occupied virtually  the  whole of  yesterday's   session   of  the assi/.e.    The  prisoner in this case was employed in the  Canadian   Pacific    company's   ollice   at  Trail, under D. W. Brewster, and between  them in the handling  of  monies  coining  into tlie ollice, .something like $1500   was  missing.    For liis part iu the affair Brewster   was   tried   last   week   ancl   found  guilty of concurring  in  and suppressing  entries in tlie company's  books.    Brewster wtis the chief witness for tlie  crown  in tlie prosecution.   His evidence in effect  was that Sinclair did all the stealing,and  that his own  olieiice   was   in   appropriating monies of tlie company to tide over  tho shortage until Sinclair could raise the  money to make good  his shortage.    The  Avorst evidence against the prisoner   was  a note wliich he left behind when  he decamped  for  the  United States, and  the  light which he made against extradition.  Tlie  only  evidence  pub  in by bhe defence was evidence Avith  respect to general  character,  G.  K.  Tackabury,  Fred  Irvine,  A.   II.  Fischer  and   .1. A. Gilker  testifying that tliey had known the prisoner favorably Avhile  he  Avas  employed  by the Nelsou & Fort Sheppard Railway  Company iu this city.  The jury, wliich was composed of A. R.  Sherwood, G. D. Curtis, AV. 3. G. Dickson,  W. H. Dowsing, J. C. Carrothers, A. G.  Gamble, 3. 13. Amiable, J. R. Graham, P.  E. Hebden, S. J. Mighton, W. S. Smith,  and A. I).

The islands ceded by-'Spain  are all of  her remaining'Pacific possessions.     They  are very numerous but A'ery small, their  .area being about  010  square  miles  and  their population about 37,000. The Palaos  islands tire chiefly known to the 1-iiglisli-  speaking world as the  Pelew  or Pel Ioav  islands.    The Marianne islands are better  knoAvn as the Ladrones.    The   best  port  in them, Guam, Avas retained by the Americans.    The Caroline islands are chiefly  notable through  the existence  of some  remarkable ruins.    By the  cession  Germany Avill gain control OA'er an enormous  stretch of the Pticific coast, as she already  has the Marshall islands to the east aiid  the Bismarekarchipclago, Solomon islands  and German NeAV Guinea, to  the south.  The German Pacific possessions will henceforth cover a huge area  of the Pacific  east   of the   Philippines,   south   of the  tropic of Cancer and extending to some  distance south of the equator.

It is now  clear that lie was convicted on wholly inadequate testimony, and, further, that  he was innocent of the crime charged  against him.  "When, the letter to major von  Schwart/.koppen was discovered in 1S94  suspicion fell upon captain Dreyfus, a  Jew, because it mentioned some details  about equipment -which he had tried to  learn,-although they did not come within  his sphere of duty. Events tluit have  occurred since the discovery of this letter  ���which was called the "bordereau"���  lead to tho belief that it was necessary to  Iind a scapegoat in the French army. It  litis-been asserted that there were traitors on the general staff, who felt that-it  was'necessary to convict some one else to  save themselves. Anyhow, colonel du  Paty de Clam, one ofthe chiefs of the  staff, decided tliat the bordereau was .'in  the handwriting of Dreyfus, and therefore he had the latter arrested and committed to the military prison.  Jn December, 1S9-1, Dreyfus was  brought to trial before a court-martial,  which found him guilty of high treason.  The government secured the passage of a  bill confining him for life to an island���  He du Diablo���off the coast of French  Guiana, in South America. He was publicly degraded and Avas placed in a small  \building on tlie island, where the precautions taken to keep him from getting  communication with tlie outride "world  were equal in severity to those practiced'  on the historical.ham in -he iron mask.,  J_ lit there was always'something suspicious about* the proof.    A  paper"-'tiled  "le petit   bleu"���the name by which, the  "little   blue"   telegrams   are   known  in  Paris���was quoted by general Cavaignac.  minister of war, in July hist year, as having   convinced   him   of   Dreyfus'  guilt.  .Something oceured to shake Cavaignac's  confidence, however, and on investigation  he learned that "le* petit bleu" had been  forged by colonel Henry, oneof tho officers of the general staff.    Henry was sent  to  the fortress  Of Mont  Valeriou, near  Paris,  and   after  having   confessed the  forgery  of "le petit  bleu" he was found  dead,  with his throat  cut, last August,  Concerning  Henry's death   tlie   opinion  ['that was common iu France was express-  I ed  by   colonel  Picquart when   hc   was  j brought into court before being sent into  secret confinement in a military fortress  I on a trumped-up  charge of having made  jblic ii military secret-   Pi_qi"iart, wMle  |chief of the bureau of secret intelligenfie,  |hadJlieeoi"ue^-^  Jiimoeeht. In open, "court lie c said he  J-yvahted Fraiice and the world to know  [that if he ,. liotild beTfovtiid dead in pris-  jon, with the knife of colonel Henry be-  [side liiln, it would be assassination and  (hot suicide.  The appeal of iMadaine Dreyfus for a  (-(jvisioh of the case against her husband  mnxs granted early this yeai', the question  [being referred, by a law specially passed  Jto meet tin's case, to the full bench of the  jcotir d_ cassation. This court has gone  [through all the evi_leii_G and lifts iioav  [reached the conclusion tliat captain  [Di.eyfUs? is entitled to a new tri-il on the  ���ground that he was not legally convicted  |bn Ills first heitrihg.  Tlie. result of the hearing before the  jcour de cassation is a triumph fbr justice  lover tlie most shameful intrigue and  jofiicial abuse of power. It is practically  Jeer tain that one major Esterhazy wrote  Ithe bordereau. But the terrible feature  ���of the whole affair lies in the faet that  fan officer of ii-repi-oachabl. character was  ���condemned to a living death by forms of  Haw, partly because his brother officers  [hated him as a Jew and partly because  [they wished' to save the real criminal.  [It will take years to restoi��e to the French  [people that confidence in the certainty of  ]obtaining justice that is essential to the  [administration- of a civilized government.

She is mimed the Good Luck and  will be in command of ca.pta.iu Hatch,  who will take her down the Columbia, to  .Beaver. A carload of supplies has been  shipped to Beaver, and this and .other  boats sent by rail will be loaded up there  iind taken down the Columbia, river.  The pack trains will meet the boats at  Surprise J-tapids and portage the. supplies  tliere. After being lowered through the  rapids, the boat will again load up and  take the supplies to the rapids below the  hike where they will again unload to the  .pack train. This plan of operation will  have the advantage thac it will lighten  the travel for the horses, especially over  the snowclad ..summit between Donald  and Bush river.  F. Holiday, Morin and party will start  on Monday. Fred's services as an experienced prospector have been in demand  in packing up in a suitable way for the  trip the supplies derived from the different merchants. He lias also been commissioned by the government "to build a  bridge over "Wood river. As this has  beeu a dangerous crossing the work will  be a great "convenience to the'gold-seekers travelling the trail.  The secret of Price's rapid return to  the Cache is out. He has evidently Avritten A. SteAvart of Edmonton, stating he  Avas'going back to. locate gold quartz. At  least this is the statement of the Edmonton Bulletin.  Frank Berthiaume is taking the two  goA'ernment boats that Avill be placed on  Bush river down with him. Tlie boats  are being shipped to Beaver and Avill be  taken down the river from there.  A relief party has been sent out AA'ith  supplies from Donald to meet archdeacon McKay on his return from the  Cache.  A Pitiful Case.  Twenty-two years ago there AAras committed to the insane asylum tit Stockton,  .California, from Washoe county, Nevada,  a German aa'Iio had .passed the half-century milestone  in   life.    His   name aviis  par80i)5 produce Qo.  rseusorv, _s. c.  Otto Gebhauer.    Gebhaucr  was committed from Washoe  county, as  the s-age-  brush state at that time had no institution in which the mentally afflicted could  be placed.    Gebhauer remained in Stockton until the hospital for mental diseases  Avas  erected at  Reno, Avhen   he aa*jis  returned to Nevada sis .a proper incumbent  of this state.    The cause of the old man's  demented    condition   has    never    been  known.    No   one  CA'er   visited   him   nor  Avas there ever an inquiry regarding him.  As years passed  he began to grow blind,  and  as he spoke  no English,   he has  become a pitiful sight, sitting by himself in  his blindness and insanity, and unable to  converse  with those  about  him,  whose  tongue  is strange  to him.    Years ago a  request Avas made by a  woman of nobility,  as she  lay on   her deathbed, that a.  search be instituted for her brother, Otto  Gebhauer,   and,   if   found,  that   he   be  brought back to his home in Switzerland.  Tliat brotheifchns  been discovered in the  Reno    madman.      Gebhauer's    neice,   ji  daughter  ofthe   woman   who made the  request, after ti long search  found  the  long-sought-for brother in the Reno asylum.    Gebhauer is iioav. totally blind, and  is  seventy-seven  years  old.    He AA'ill be  FULL LINE OF  taken to his father's home as soon as arrangements can be niade]--iiis niece hav-  ing sent Avord tliat lie be given the very  best attention while travelling, and to allow him to Avant for nothing that money  can purchase.
