MAJOR'S LABOR LOSl
Marchand Will Withdraw from
Fashoda by Order of the
E0 A53T0UNCE3 LORD SALISBURY,
Thereby Eliminating the Most Acnte
Cause of Trouble, bnt Not All Cause,
Says the Marquis Announcement Made
at a Banquet to Kitchener Given by tbe
Lord Mayor Sirdar Is tbe Hero of the
Hour In tbe British Metropolis.
London, Xov. 5. General Kitchener
v.ns given an ovation by the people of
London as he rode through the streets
yesterday to Guild Hall to receive a
sword of honor, the gift of the City of
Lcndon. But interest in his presence
here, in spite of his renown and the
magnificent service he has rendered the
empire, was greatest in regard to what
would be said at the banquet at night;
for there it was expected that Lord
Salisbury would announce the with
drawal of Marchand from Fashoda. The
banquet was given at the Mansion
House by the lord mayor, and was an
exceptionally brilliant affair. A trophy
of British and Egyptian flags entwined
had been arranged above the lord may
or's scat. The guests included the Duke
of Cambridge, the Marquis of Salisbury
and the other cabinet ministers. Lord
Roberts cf Kandahar. Sir William Ver
non Harcourt, Lord Rosebery, Lord
Wolseley, Lord Russell of Killowen
(lord chief justice). Henry White (Unit
ed States charge d'affaires). Jud;
Lambert Tree (formerly United States
minister to Russia), and others of the
highest rank in the British empire. In
all there were about S50 guests present.
Kitchener Kaoavlvedi witlt jbUcut Acclaim.
General Kitchener was attired in the
uniform of a major general of the Brit
ish army, with the ribbon of the Os-
manieh order. He was greeted with tre
mendous cheering from the assembled
guests. The banquet was served in the
Egyptian Hall of the Mansion House.
General Kitchener sat on the right hand
cf the lord mayor, and the Duke of
Cambridge was seated on the lord may
or's left. After the dinner proper the
lady mayoress and p. number of other
ladies were accommodated with seats
In the gallery in order to enable them
to hear the speeches. After the loving
cup had been circulated the lord mayor
toasted the queen, the Prince and Prin
cess of Wales and the royal family, to
which the Duke of Cambridge re
sponded. Koftcbery ToanH the Forreft,
Lord Rosebery toasted the army and
navy, paying a glownig tribute to Lord
Kitchener and his gallant comrades, and
to Lord Cromer and the Epyptian and
Soudanese forces, "whose brilliant cam
paign, just closed, is the mi st consum
mate in the annals of British military
history for eighty years, and far more
beneficent and extended in its results
than, perhaps, any recorded in history.
The campaign, said Lord Rosebery. had
wiped out the "bloodiest and most bar
barous tyranny in the history of man
kind. He concluded by expressing the
opinion that Great Britain had "a right
to expect from the nations whose terri
tory borders on the dervish territory.
no' tll-feeling and Jealousy, but the
fullest measure of gratitude."
There was a feeling of expectancy
throughout the speeches and everything
that could be construed as an allusion
to war was Jumped at by the assembly
with prolonged cheers. When Sir Xew-
ell Salmon alluded to "the preparedness
of the navy." and Lord Lansdowne to
the "readiness of the army." there were
prolonged outbursts of applause.
S.tLIsIllKY OIVKS THE NEWsi.
France SentM Wonl of Her Withdrawal
from Fahola on the Nile.
The assembly greeted the rising of
the Marquis of Salisbury to toast the
sirdar with nervous silence, as it had
been whispered that he had an impor
tant and grave statement to make. His
statement was important, but it was
pacific, bs he announced a settlement
of the chief difficulty with France. The
premier said in part: "Xo one can
wonder at the vast enthusiasm by which
the career of this great soldier has been
received, especially when we consider
the strange dramatic interest of the
circumstances and conditions amid
which his laurels were won by the air-
dar. Besides being a splendid soldier h
Is also a fplrr.did diplomatist. It must
have required unusual talents success
fully to carry oui the delicate mission
up the Xiie which conducted him into
the presence of Major Marchand.
"he sirJar has rwcntly expressed
the hope that the difficulties arising
Iri'ra the presence of Major Marchand
may be within the power of diplomacy
to a.ijust. I am glai to say that up to
a ctrtin r;int he has provea a true
prophet. This afternoon I received
from the French ambassador the in
formation that the French government
has cctne t: the conclusion that the
occupation of Fasliodaja of nc.8ort of

and that they thought, in the circum
stances, that to persist In an occupa
tion which would only cost them money
and do harm, merely because some bad
advisers thought It might be disagree
able to. an uswelcome neighbor, would
not show the wisdom with which, as I
Think, the French republicans bten uni
"They have done what I beMeve every
g-tvernment wou!d have done in the
same position resolved that the occu
pation must ceas?. Cheers. I must
not be understood as saying that all
causes of controversy are removed.
Doubtless there will be many discus
sions between us. but a somewhat acute
ar.d somewhat dangerous cause of dif
ferences has been removed."
General Kitchener, whose reply was
modest and not important, gave un
stinted praise to the British. Kgyptian
and Soudanese troops. The sirdar said
he would indeed have been an incapabli
leader if he had failed of victory with
such soldiers. He gave some details
as to the experience of the expedition,
dwelling with pride upon Its cheapness,
and In summing up "the assets that re
main" referred to 600 miles of railway,
gur.boats, a flotilla-of sailing craft and
after a pause the Soudan. Laushter
A striking feature of the occasion
was the presence of a number of youns
officers of the Guards, Life Guards ani
Twenty-first Lancers who had served
with the sirdar. Several of them were
wounded, and walked with crutches or
with thtir arms in slings.
rOLICY OF THE FRENCH MIXISTItr
New Premier Tell the Deputies What the
Government M ill Do.
Paris, Xov. 5. When the chamber of
deputies reopened yesterday the feat-
v.re was, of course, the statement of the
policy of the new ministry.. Premier
Dupuy declared that the fundamental
principle of the republic was the su
premacy of the civil power. Continuing
he saiO: "In the opinions of, individuals
this is the only safe means of calming
the public mind, disturbed by an affair
which cannot much lor.gercause anxiety
to the republic. Other questions call
for the attention and vigilance of a
great people. The permanent interests
of the nation at heme and abroad, its
greatness nnd prosperity, wiil be the
predominating object of our cares and
efforts." Dupuy then emphasized the
imperative necessity cf fulfilling the
obligations of the :ptsition of 1900 and
'France must neglect nothing to
maintain the position she has won by
her loyalty, strength and love of peace.
She must devote herself to strengthen
ing this position, which was conse
crated before the whole world by a
precious alliance. The government's
foreign policy will be inspired by the
clear interests of the country and care
will be taken that our efforts are only
proportionate to the value of the object
at stake." As to tlie Dreyfus case, the
premier added, light .will be thrown up
on it the day the court renders Its de
cision, which will be enforced by the
government. The eham'ier approved the
ministerial declaration by a vote of 429
Delcasse. minister of foreign affairs.
replying to demands for the discussion
of the Fashoda question, said he was
unable to fix a date for it In view of the
interests he had to safeguard, but add
ed that he hoped to arrange an early
date for its discussion.
