CHAPTER XX
BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER

WHEN we returned to Paris we saw with sorrow that the parties had not disarmed. Monsieur Prince, a magistrate, had been found dead on the railway line at Dijon. The parties of the Right maintained that he had been assassinated by the Freemasons because he knew all about the Affaire Stavisky. The parties of the Left said he had committed suicide. The passions of the two sides were stronger than their interest in the truth. Two famous detectives, summoned from London by a great French magazine, came to the conclusion that it was suicide; the results of their investigations were never published.
`I should have lost all my readers!' the editor said to me naively.
Not being a party man nor acquainted with the facts, I reserved judgment. But one day meeting Georges Mandel, a Cabinet minister, at a friend's house I asked:
`What is one to make of the Affaire Prince?'
`That's an odd question!' he replied lifting his chin with a disdainful grimace above his strange high collar of the vintage of 1830. `You're the only one who can answer it. ...'
`I? But I haven't any of the facts in the case.'
`It's not a question of facts,' Mandel said, shrugging his shoulders. `If you belong to the Right, Prince was assassinated; if you belong to the Left, he killed himself. And so you alone, as I said, can answer your question.'
This paradox, unhappily, illustrated only too well the new crisis of delusions and bad faith. Left and Right set out to fight against imaginary monsters and the wild and random swinging of their swords dismemberedunhappy France. The Radicals of the 6th of February, tired of being called assassins by their adversaries, prepared for revenge by allying themselves with the Socialists, and also with the Communists. The Doumergue Ministry which could not exist without the Radicals saw itself threatened with dissolution when it had not as yet even begun the reforms that were expected of it.
