From U parts of, the country n.. tin continent, the ;blnet ministers cnn.i lu London today to attend the meeting which was regarded as hank ing the nu.st Important phaie in 1 )" r -cent polltlcut history of the I nittu King dom. The Times voltej public aentlmunl lu saying It was a "great occasion." mtrn Important than the historic meeting when home rule was uppermost, for the main Issue today Is the "unity of the empire Not since the fatal day when the cabinet framed an answer to President Krugcr's ultimatum had such crowds gathered around .Downing street. From early morning loiterers assembled here In the hope of catching a glimpse ot the pdjllcal leaders. However, when. It was announced that the cabinet would not meet until 3 o'clock the spectators dwindled a wa y. Mr. Balfour, who arrived In London from Scotland yesterday evening, went to Down ing street early. There a number ot treasury officials were closeted all tho morning with Mr. Balfour'a secretaries, going over the statistics on which the cabinet Is supposed to base Its decision for or against free trade. Mr. Chamber lain, who wan the central figure In today'a proceedings, left Birmingham, accompanied by his wife. A large crowd bid them farewell at tha railroad station. On their arrival here Mrs. Chamberlain went to their London home, and Mr. Chamberlain proceeded to the colonial office. Chamberlain la Hooted. Upon tho arrival of Mr. Chamberlain at Downing street he was loudly hooted. A ' crowd ot laborers employed nearby joined In this unusual demonstration against the colonial secretay. .Mr. Chamberlain, who was accompanied by General Balfour, presi dent of the Board of Trade, showed his customary Indifference to this reception. The police eventually were . obliged to form double lines from Mr. Balfour'a psity to tho foreign office so to enable the cabinet ministers to enter the latter place.

The cabinet meeting ended at 6:50 p. rn. It transpired that the predicted decision tn the cabinet over Mr. Chamberlain's fiscal proposals actually occurred and that a partial reorganization of the ministry is probable. Mr. Ritchie expressed his un alterable opposition tn any change In the fiscal system and nothing In believed to have occurred to modify the opinion hsld this morning that he will resign the chan cellorship of the exchequer. In spite of the South African War com mission's severe criticism of Lord Lans downo's course as secretary of war, It IS declared that he proposed to remain at the head of the Foreign office. LONDON, Sept. 14. As head of the For eign officu, It was remarked by one who knows his views, that he has made quite a different record In his present place than when aa secretary of state for wars he had to contend with the opposition ot Lotd Woolsley. Besides the fiscal -I o t on and the effoi t on the country of the publication of the War commission's report soma attention was given to the Balkan situation, but con fidence prevails that Gieat Britain will net depart from Ita policy in not advocating the concert of the lyjw.ers. It Is said the meeting tomorrow was called" for the pur pose of further contrlderlng matter .i of an other nature. it Is stated positively that the fiscal de bate was carried through without fresh developments. (iuesaer Are at Sea. The ministers kept secret the diacuseli.t.h of yesterday's cabinet council so effectually that the speculation as to the results is almost nugatory and the government press organs this morning offer the most con flicting accounts of what took place at the meeting. The Dally Telegraph, which Is probably the best Informed, asserts thst the cabinet crisis was postponed until this evening and the discussion of the finance question will be continued at the resumed meeting today, but whatever may he the upshot, Piemler Balfour will neither resign, dissolve Parliament nor summon an autumn ses . Ion. The Daily Telegraph also discusses tlie question vf a royul commission bring appointed to consider the whole finance question. The Standard, nit the other hand, asserta with equal Ksltlvetie thai tho finance inquiry was finished and the ad journed meeting will deal with foreign polle.
