EVACUATION OF CORFU
DETAILS OF CEREMONY. Corfu, Sept. 27.
The evacuation of Corfu was completed this morning; the Ital- ian flag was hauled down ; and the island was handed over to the Greeks. The town was in perfect order under the resumed civil ad- ministration and no threats had
been made against Italian citizens, and hence the population was sur- prised this afternoon to see four Italian Dreadnoughts and seven destroyers reappear from behind the island of Vido and anchor be fore the town- The cause of their reappearance is unknown. — (Reu- ter). The apprehensions of the popula- tion were dispelled when the eva- cuation began. The Italian flag was lowered amid salutes from the Italian fleet and a Greek destroyer. The Italian flagship saluted the Greek flag when it was hoisted. Forty thousand of the people wel- comed the Governor when he land- ed, and carried him to the prefec- ture. British and French flags were waved by the crowd which demon- strated in front, of the British and French Consulates.— (Reuter)
