Now York, Sept. 23.-The failure of
the -military governor of Lille to give
reinforcements to the British forces
at a time when they faced annhilation
during the battle of the Mons, the re
sultant protest by Lord Kitchener,
Great Britain's secretary of war, made
to President Poincare, brought about
the recent resignation of the Frencht
cabinet, according to Dr. Fred S. Ma
son of New York, who arrived here to
day on tle Olymple. Dr. Mason was
allowed by Surgeon Gen. IUndenbell or
British ex pedilitionlary forces to vlsit
various hospitals prepared for the

liort of the facts as the official is said
to have stated them to ,Dr. Mason:
