CHAPTER 10: We Shall Have to Eat Red Meat - Now" (continued)
We were about to take the road leading to the chateau, when a considerable stir at the park gate attracted our attention. A carriage had arrived and some people had come from the chateau to meet it. Rouletabille pointed out to me a gentleman who descended from it.
"That's the Chief of the Surete" he said. "Now we shall see what Frederic Larsan has up his sleeve, and whether he is so much cleverer than anybody else."
The carriage of the Chief of the Surete was followed by three other vehicles containing reporters, who were also desirous of entering the park.

The Chief of the Surete calmed their impatience by undertaking to furnish to the press, that evening, all the information he could give that would not interfere with the judicial inquiry.
