The truth seems to be that the situ

Salisbury and Mr. Chamberlain after
comparing views today have decided
that a cabinet meeting must be held
to consider an alternative program.
The Transvaal government was
warned that the ministers would tak
the whole matter under reconsidera
tion If their proposals war not ac
cepted. This will require another
cabinet meeting when there has been
sufficient time for drafting a new dis
patch. This interval will also enable the
British forces already afloat or about

At I a. m., M. Guerin appeared at a
window and asked an hour's respite to
make up his mind, declaring that he
would surrender then It his friends
were not arrested. At 4 o'clock a cap
tain of the guard rapped at the door,

central depot In the Palais de Justice,
situated on -the lie de la Cite, In the
center of the Seine. Then the weary
troopers marched off. The officers
gave orders to the cavalrymen who
mounted their horses and trotted
away. Then followed the firemen In
wagons with their engine and fire es
capes and soon only a small detach-
ment of municipal foot guards and a
cordon jf police enveloped In hooded
cloaks remained In the Immediate
vicinity of the fort.
The majority of the crowd were at
the opposite end at the street from
which M. Guerin and his companions
were driven away and the first Inti

Fort Chabroi had surrendered was the
withdrawal of the troops and guards.
The exclamation was heard on all
sides: "Why. they have surrendered
like sheep! What a fiasco!" and the
crowd, cheated out of the anticipated
storming of the fort by fire and water,
dispersed laughing at the expense of
the government, which had taken six
weeks to accomplish what, with a
little determination, might have been
done the first day and exchanging sar
castic comment on the chicken-hearted
conduct of M. Guerin and his garrison,
who they had fondly hoped would
make a spirited resistance.

DREYFUS' QUARTERS UNKNOWN.
Only a Few of His Relative Know ot
His Destination. ,J
NEW YORK, Sept. 20. A special to
the World from Paris says:
Captain Dreyfus in his present con
dition of health, will not go to Folk
estone. The report that Mme Dreyfus
and Mme. Labor! visited that resort
in search for quarters for Dreyfus Is
false. The destination of Dreyfus is
carefully withheld and Is known only
to a few relatives. Even the friends
wno fought for him keep quiet
through a fear of a leakage. Dreyfus'
weak health needs warm climates.
Both Labor! and Demange were seen
by the World correspondent. Each
disclaimed any Intention of going to
Rennes to see Dreyfus before his de
parture. M. Labor! said: "The pardon
can be only accepted as a preliminary
to a future vindication. Our appeal
is not yet withdrawn and If possible
it won't be. At any rate, the fight
will not be withdrawn."
Entile Zola said to the World corres
pondent: "The Rennes trial was the
dark fourth act of a dark tragedy.
How will the act end? Dreyfus will re
gain his place in the army and the
drama will end with a procession of
handcuffed generals led to prison or
else the dark days are Just beginning
for France, days when Justice will
come with the sword and torch and a
martyr's acquittal will be soiled with
the blood of humanity; by vindicating
Dreyfus, France will vindicate her
self. The curtain has risen on the
fifth act. The world watches."
