The death of President Faure, the
dread of a revolution and the election
of Emile Loubet as the ruler of the
French Republic were the stirring

to the whole press of the country to
work in union
There is every sign of a campaign
against President Loubet similar 10
that which drove M. Cssimir-Perler
to resign. Clearly ‘La Patrie Fran-
