The Times' Milan correspondent states that after the Council meeting at Fiume, a great majority accepted the Government scheme, but D'Annunzio demanded a plebiscite, and the Council, anxious to save the poet's susceptibilities, agreed on a formula freeing D'Annunzio and his followers from the oath to remain in tho city till annexation.
The Arditi, fearing that the ballot would be unfavourable, seized the ballot boxes.
D'Annunzio Tvas within an ace of his resignation and departure, but when surrounded by ardent supporters lie changed Ms mind, and now proclaims himself to be led by Divine inspiration. He talks wildly, and, banging his sword, declares that he will aid the rebels in Ireland, Egypt and India. Eeally lie incarnates the character of his decadent literature.
He has secured control of the city, and will not leave it while all but a few thousand fanatical Arditti, who are unwilling to return from their licentiousness to normal life, are vainly seeking a way to liberate themselves from their liberator.
It is alleged that the Social Democrats are also implicated.
