The session of the cabinet ministers was called at about 10 o'clock and con tinued three hours, it was deduced from this protracted meeting that they found difficulty in repairing the rift in the army organization caused by the blow given to it by the resigna tions of Sir John French, chief of the general staff, and Lieutenant General Sir John Spencer Ewart, adjutant gen eral to the forces. The two generals to-day seemed determined not to with draw their resignations, as they con sidered they had received a rebuff in the governments repudiation of the guarantees which they gave to Briga dier General GougU regarding Ulster.

SEElMlllGl FROM WINDOW SILL [Continued from First Page.] Eva Davidson, the chief nurse, raced to Mrs. Tracy's cell and made a flying grab at the woman's hands as she was about to drop. They dragged her 7 screaming through the window Into the cell again. Steps were taken to-day by the Poor Directors to have the Dauphin county court appoint a commission to inquire into Mrs. Tracy's mental condition with a view to having her removed ta the State asylum. Husband Deserted Her Grief at the evident desertion of her husband, it was said at the office of the poor board to-day, lias been largely responsible for Mrs. Tracy's condition. The woman is 31 years old and is the wife of Thomas Tracy. They have one child, a daughter, aged 8, who is with relatives. The Traoys came hero from York county a couple of weeks ago and according to the story unearthed by the poor board investigators, Tracy hasn't done much toward suppprtlng his wife. I Less than a week ago she became | 111 and was taken to the llarrisburg I hospital. Tracy, it is said, not only I failed to call to see her after the first visit but only telephoned to Inquire 1 about hor but once. The woman griev ed piteously for her husband and when he was told of this over the phone, he merely said he "guessed he couldn't do anything for her." And yesterday the frantic woman, too violent to be kept longer in the 1 hospital ward, was renjoved to the ■ almshouse.
