The itrst thing he did was to call upon Undertaker Wil liams, who brought tho remains of the unknown woman from Taunton last night, and requested that they bo delivered to him. Mr. Williams informed the detective that he intended to hold them until he re ceived definite orders from the coroner at Bridgeport to give them up, supplemented by a sworn statement from Mr. Perkins that the fragments of the body In the box were not those of his daughter. At noon a telegram was received from the coroner address to Undertaker Wil liams and containing an order to give up the body to Arnold. Mr. Perkins was induced to sign the statement demanded by the undertaker. With the two documents, Arnold again i presented himself at the undertaker's and obtained the body, which was ln an ad ] vane ed stage of decomposition. Mi.-s Perkins appears very much uncon cerned regarding tho whole affair and looks on it as more of a Joke than anything else. She kept indoors all day, and although the I house was well surrounded by curious peo ple, few caught even a glimpse of her. The Bournes are ever closer-mouthed that the Perkins family, although denying emphat ically that the two nre married.

If the festive peals which should have greet ed this year shall remain dumb, there yet remains to me the memory of innumera ble proofs of loyalty and deep sympathy.

QUESTION OF REVISION WILL BE SUBMITTED TO A COM MITTEE THE CABINET MAY DECLINE But ft Vessel Has Already Started for Devil's Island to Bring Back Dreyfus Associated Press Special Wire. PARIS. Sept. IS.-At the opening of the council today M. Barrlen, minister of jus tice, states his views of the Dreyfus case at considerable length, expressing his con viction that a revision was necessary for the peace of the country and expedient on the ground that many of the documents In the dossier appeared to be of doubtful authenticity and, above all. that Colonel Henry's admission of forgery threw sus picion upon all his evidence. Mr. Sarrlen, however, did not ask the council to decide for or against revision, but only asked permission to submit the j matter to a commission. IM. Faure opened ;he discussion. He did I not openly oppose a revision, but pointed I out political and other objections to the [reopening of the case. It Is said that M. Brlsson went so far as to remind M. Faure of the constitutional 'limits to his functions. Finally a division occurred, in which M. Faure did not take part. The decision of the committee appointed to consider the matter of the revision will be ln no way binding upon the cabinet, which still have to decide the actual question of revision. I; Is reported, however, that a vessel has already started for the Isle dv Diable In readiness to bring Dreyfus to Paris, and M. Brisson and General Chanolne are de termined that nobody, whatever his po sition, will be sheltered. Stirring events are regarded as pending. General Zurlinden la credited with the be lief that there ts a Plcquart mystery and lt is believed that he fully Intended Pic quart should be prosecuted. Aceordlnglo Colonel Plcquart's written statement, to the minister of Justice four secret docu ments were submitted to the court-martial held In 1594 behind 1 the backs of Dreyfus and -his counsel. Le Soir says General Chanolne, the newly appointed war minister, told friends that he regarded himself as a sentinel relieving an other charged with watching over the army's rights, and Intimated that he was appointed by the cabinet and he was not responsible for decisions by the council. He declared that should he see any at tempt or pretext at a revision of the Drey fus proceedings to engage in maneuvers against the army, he would immediately resign. The difficulties attendant upon securing a revision of the Dreyfus proceeding may be gauged from the story now published that General Zurlinden has practically of fered to advocate a revision of the Drey fus case, and that his change nf opinion is due to the strong feeling which he after ward found among his subordinates at the war office. Dreyfus Case Dramatized HAVANA. Sept. 18.—At the Tacon theater last night there was pro duced a play based upon the Dreyfus trial, in which Dreyfus was portrayed throughout as an innocent viotlm of con spiracy in the French army.
