ON HIS WAY
Withdrawal of ttie Obnoxious French
ExBeflition From the English
THE TIME AVERTED
Withdrawal Must Be Made Uncondi
tionally Before Negotiations on the
Other Points at Issue in the Egyp
tian Question Could Be Entered
Cairo, Oct. 28. The boat recently
dispatched to Fashoda haa reached
Khartoum on the return journey, and
it is asserted that Major Marehand is on
Paris, Oct. 28. The French foreign
office has received a dispatch from the
diplomatic agency at Cairo, confirming
the reported arrival of Marehand at
London, Oct. 28. The Pall Mall Ga
zette this afternoon summarized the re
sult of the British cabinet meeting yes
terday, as follows:
Marehand must be withdrawn uncon
ditionally, and no undertaking or prom
ise can be given to discuss the questions
raised by France in regard to access to
the Nile, etc, When Marehand is with
drawn it will be determined whether
the question raised admits of discussion
and under what conditions the discus
sion can be proceeded with.
If Marehand is not withdrawn, there
will be no interference with his remain
ing at Fashoda, or date fixed for his
withdrawal. Necessarily reinforcements
will not be allowed to reach him. He
will be treated courteously as a visitor,
and will be regarded in no other light,
therefore it is left to France to adopt any
active measures to precipitate the con
flict. The Gazette adds that it has good
reasons to believe that while Russia has
counseled France to tide over the diffi
culty and avoid war, ehe has promised
to throw her weight in the scale at no
distant date for the purpose of bringing
the whole Egyptian question and Brit
ish occupation of Egypt to the front for
There does not seem the slightest
ground for the report of yesterday that
the British cabinet had decided to de
clare a British protectorate over Egypt,
It was based solely on a London dis
patch to Paris Soir. The papers do not
comment on the statement made, and
the St. James Gazette alone alludes to
the subject, urging the government to
adopt such a course.
Spanish Commissioners Seem About
Ready to Abandon Their Obstruc
tive Tactics, According to the Pres
ident's Advices. 3
Washington, Oct. 28. The president
was enabled to lay before the cabinet
today very encouraging reports from
Paris regarding the progress of the peace
negotiations which will be concluded
sooner than was expected from the out
look a few days ago.
It can be stated authoritatively that
the commissioners have not yet actually
begun the discussion of the Philippine
question, and that it will not be taken
up until next week.
The recent action of the United States
government, intimating that negotia
tions were proceeding too slowly, has
bad an effect upon the Spanish commis
sioners, and they are not likely to debate
the remaining propositions to the length
they did the settlement of the Cuban
The United States has not assumed
nor guaranteed the so-called municipal
debt of Cuba or Cuban municipalites,
but it is expected such debts will be
paid by the municipalities incurring
them, for by no reason could they be
charged upon Spain.
Griggs, Gage and Long were not pres
ent at today's cabinet meeting. Hay
said the Cuban question had not, as he
understood, been finally decided by the
Paris commission, but a complete settle
ment, it was expected, would be reached
by the end of the present week. The
Philippine question, he thought, would
be taken up by the joint commission
early in the coming week. Although
the members of the cabinet are extreme
ly reticent on the subject of the acquisi
tion of the Philippines, there is now
little or no doubt that nothing less than
cessation of the entire group of islands
will be accepted by the American com
A NEW TRIAL
French Court of Cassation Orders It,
as Well as Provisional Liberation
of the Prisoner.
Paris, Oct. 28. At today's session of
the court of cassation, M. Bard conclud
ed his report of the Dreyfus case, the
first part of which was presented yester
day, M. Mornard, counsel for Mme.
Dreyfus, demanded that an investiga
tion be ordered concerning the diver
gency of the testimony of the experts
who examined the bordereau in 1894 and
in 1897, and also to ascertain whether
the secret documents were communi
cated to members of the court-martial.
There was no excitement outside the
palace of justice.
The public prosecutor, M. Maneau,
followed M. Monard. Addressing the
judges, he said :
"Nobody can now take the Dreyfus
affair out of our hands, nor can you re
linquish it without dereliction of duty.
Your decisions must constitute for every
body an expression of truth and justice.
Revise the trial then, gentlemen, or at
least prepare a road for its revision."
Maneau concluded with denouncing
villainous attacks upon partisans of the
revision, and made a strong plea that
the court be not influenced by outside
pressure, but it decided in fayor of re
vision of the case and immediate pro
visional liberation of Dreyfus.
Bow to Prevent Croup. '
We have two children who are subject
to attacks of croup. Whenever an attack
is coming on my wife gives them Cham
berlin's Cough Remedy and it always
prevents the attack. It is a household
necessity in thisjeountry, and no matter
what else we run out of, it would not do
to be without Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. More of it is sold here than
of all other cough medicines combined.
