the 4th of August, 1888, openly refused any longer to recognize Salomon's authority. On the 10th of the same month a hostile manifestation took place at Port-au-Prince, whereupon the President at once declared that he was willing to resign his office. Thus without the shedding of blood either at Cap-Haitien or at the capital, Salomon left for France on the afternoon of the 10th of August.
The task of maintaining order was intrusted to a provisional government presided over by ex-President Boisrond Canal.
- He died at Paris on the 19th of October, 1888.
