1899. Excerpt: ... Chapter XLVffl. APPEAL TO EMPEROR WILLIAM AND
KING HUMBERT Maitre Labori telegraphed personal appeals to Emperor
William and King Humbert to grant permission to Colonel
Schwartzkoppen and Major Panizzardi, German and Italian military
attaches in Paris in 1894, to come to Rennes to testify at the
trial of Captain Dreyfus. The appeals were couched in eloquent
terms, invoking the assistance of their majesties in the name of
justice and humanity. The demand of Maitre Labori that the
court-martial should issue process, subject to the approval of the
two sovereigns, came like a thunderbolt on September 5th. The step
was fraught with momentous consequences, as it afforded Emperor
William an opportunity again to assume his favorite r6le of arbiter
of the destinies of the world. Colonel Jouaust told Maitre Demange
at the close of the session that if he received official
notification that Colonel Schwartzkoppen and Major Panizzardi were
coming to depose he would be prepared to adjourn the trial pending
their arrival. A remarkable circumstance, and one that was
significant of the relations between the two eminent advocates who
are conducting the defence, was the fact that Maitre Labori
telegraphed the German Emperor and the King of Italy on his own
initiative, without consulting or advising Maitre Demange. The
Minister of War, General the Marquis de Gallifet, on September 5th
sent orders to the generals and other military witnesses to leave
Rennes and return to their respective posts within two hours after
the conclusion of the depositions, and not to be present during the
pleadings. M. Cernuschi, the political refugee, who appeared before
the courtmartial on September 4th, as a witness for the
prosecution, was not examined by the court during the time it sat
