Jammed every available craft to the
point of danger.

The marine pageant was one of sur
passing brilliancy and grandeur. The
naval review was the opening of the
festival which will continue until to
morrow night. It consisted of a proces-
Bion of vessels arcund the anchored
warships, but that bare statement con

yacht May. with Secretary Long and
the Washington party on board, led the

As the rroeesslon moved river and
shore were ere flaring mass of color.
AH the warships were in full dress,
flags flying from bow to stern, from
masthead to masthead. Trailing along
!ehind the yacht May were vessels of
every description, all bravely decked in
colors, and puffing and shrieking their
whistles like marine demons. Secretary
Long, with Lleuternnt Southerland and
Captain "Bob" Kvans on either side,
stationed himself on the bridge of the
May, and prerently the ColurrMa, the
first of the warship?, was reached. Her
officers and. men were drawn up on deck,
every hand raised in salute, and then
her six-pounders began to roar out the
secretary's salute of seventeen guns.
With the beginning of the salute came
the bugle ami drum salute from the
ship, and before the echoes of the first
shot had been swallowed up by the
boom of the second a veritable pande
monium of whistles, sma'.lsr uns and
the roar of the crowds broke out and"
continued throughout the procession.

Toasts Drask to the Naval Heroes Present
The Texas, the Gloucester and the

enthusiasm. pon reaching the end of
the line the reviewing vessels swung
round and proceeded down the river

down was merely a continuation of the
enthusiasm and of the clamorous guns

CABIKET RESIGNS ITS AUTHORITY.
Brisson Goes Oat of Office on a Resolution
That Was Adopted, in Spite of lllm
Gen. Chanoine's Sensational Debut
s Cabinet Officer Chamber of Deputies
In a Lovely Uproar Moat of the Time
at Its Opening Session Same Sort of
Doings la the Streets.
Paris, Oct, 26. The Brisson cabinet
resigned last night as the result of -the
adverse result of a vote of confidence.
There was great excitement in the city
yesterday on the occasion of the as
sembling of the French congress. The
city was patrolled by policemen and sol
diers and presented the appearance of a
city in war time. The first sensational
feature of the session of the deputies
was the resignation of Chanoine, min
ister of war, as the result of a violent
attack upon him by Deroulede. At the
close of the attack Chanoine declared
himself against the reopening of the
Dreyfus question and resigned his of
fice. Brisson, the premier, then took
the floor and was received with loud
cries of "Resign."
.- Hot Time in the Old Chamber.
A resolution was offered by De Mahy
demanding the end of the campaign of
"insult to the army." Brisson refused
to accept the resolution, but It was
adopted 2S6 to 254. Resignation of the
cabinet followed as quickly as possible
after this. During Deroulede's speech
two of the deputies. Basiy and Paulin-
roary, engaged in a person encounter
which caused intense excitement among
the members of the house and the
crowds of spectators in the galleries.
Finally the deputies rose in a body and
protested against the conduct of the
fighters. The discussion in the lobbies
was animated on General Chanoine's
unprecedented course in resigning in
the midst of a session and without giv
ing a previous hint of his Intention to
Cavalgnac's Warm Reception.
When De Mahy's resolution had been
read Cavaignac, former minister of war,
rushed to the tribune and demanded an
immediate discussion of the resolution.
He was greeted with hostile shouts, in
culdingr "sabre," "forgery," "razor,"
which caused a great uproar. The
shouting of the word "razor" was an
allusion to the suicide of the late Col
onel Henry, who is said to have cut his
throat in his prison cell at the fortress
of Mont Valerlen after confessing to
having forged one of the Dreyfus docu
ments, though It has since been claimed
the razor with which the deed was com
mitted was not found in the cell of the
The Populace Takes a Hand.
About 10.000 people sang the "Marsel-
lalse" around a bonfire made of the
Dreyfus paper Les Droits de l'Homme
("The Rights of Man"). All the stores In
the neighborhood were closed In antic
ipation of rioting. The cuirassiers, as
sisted by the mounted Republican
guards, succeeded in driving back an
other crowS which was shouting "Spit
upon Brisson." A big crowd gathered
to organize a manifestation in front of
the Military club. By 4 p. m. about 100
arrests had been made. The crowds
were continually augmented until the
vicinity of the chamber of deputies was
black with people cheering General
Chanoine and the army.
BRISSON RECEIVED WITH IXSCLT.
Indescribable Scenes in the Chamber
Much Turbulence in the Street.
The scenes that followed after Gen
eral Chanoine had resigned were almost
indescribable. When Brisson appeared
in the tribune he was received with In
sults and imprecations from all sides,
but he stood his ground calmly. A lady
who was leaving the gallery after the
adjournment, on being asked by a dep
uty how she enjoyed it all. replied: "Im
mense. Wasn't it delicious? So much
better than the Comedie Francaise."
- "Tea." replied the deputy, "and this
Is only the beginning."
It Is said that President Faure de

the latter called at t,he Elysee after bolt
ing from . the chamber. M. Faure
aent word that he could only receive
Chanoine's resignation through Brisson.
In a subsequent interview between M.
Faure and M. Brisson it was agreed
that the portfolio of war could only be
entrusted to a civilian in order to assert
