THE CITIZEN, Fill DAY, AUGUST 4, 1011. f AGW T THE MOROCCAN ACAIN ST1K Situation Acute, but Diplo macy Expected to Prevail. Ooo I HE "Moroccan question," which is just now the causo of anx iety among the diplomats of England, France and Gcr- aaay, Is more or less of an old, old Btory. Morocco has been a causo for Forry among the great European pow- brs for a great many years, and the irospects are that, no matter what the Iratcomo of the present angle of the :ontrovcrsy, there will be a "Moroccan luestlon" for years to come. In the news dispatches the latest Situation is termed "acute," which I nay mean much or little. Diplomatic onferencos are secret, and Just when Iho world looks for a declaration of Ivnr some corner is turned and the rouble smoothed over. In the gradual partition of Africa Imong the peoples of Europe that has Icon going on during tho last fifty or Bxty years it was inevitable that the lurn of Morocco should come at no fery distant day. For the peace of be world It would undoubtedly have leen best if Morocco could have held fcs own and have transformed Itself lito some semblance of a modernized Itate. Unfortunately no such develop- hent has been apparent The failure of Morocco to move for ward of its own accord made it a nat ural prey to one or other of tho great iUropean colonizing powers. England's lommcrcial interests In the country lave always been great, and under fie Kaid Sir Harry Maclean her po tical fortunes there seemed to pre- lage a further extension of British jifluence in tbo Mediterranean. But Inother powerful claimant was on I and; France and her position as a elghbor to Morocco mado her claim 1 every sense a valid one. Tho rlval- of these two powers in Morocco lireatencd to become acute, but Egypt I as on Great Britain's hands. There. o, France was tho great competitor f England and to tho consolidation f English influence. To bo free of Ills Incubus was an absolute necessity. the treaty of 10O1, Including, as it did, uclprocal self denying clauses for trance in Egypt and for England In fforocco paved the way for the lay- Iig of tho old conflict between tho vo countries. Franco now believed hat she had a free hand in Morocco. France's lost Opportunity. I An energetic forward policy would primps have won the day, and Franco Iould have been able to found a large ilonial empire covering tho whole of le northwestern part of Africa from gunls up to the Atlantic ocean. But Itenml conditions lamed the prowess her foreign policy. There was M. pan Jaures, the Socialist, and the Itcifists to be reckoned with, and in tder to calm their oversensitive sus ptlblllties a new method called Iiaciflc penetration," economic and iltural. was adopted. M. Delcasse lid reckoned without his host That bst was Germany. iGermany soon saw tho possibilities Morocco, not only because of its Iticrent riches, but also because of its litical worth and its evident inability stand upon its own legs. One has HI rather a vivid remembrance of le sudden descent of tho kaiser upon lingler in the year 1005. The result this intervention was the confer- bce at Algeclras in tho spring of OG. lit has been held that tho "act" which suited from this conference was tn a Irge measure a diplomatic check upon :rman aspirations, as it placed the Ionization of the Moroccan police un- r Spanish and French military offl- Irs. However, although she did not Icceed in breaking through tho lglo-French entente cordiale or in Ittlng into tho IHspano-French un rstandlng, Germany was successful making her voico heard and in as- Irtlng her right to be consulted In all eat world problems that come up r discussion and in which European forests are at stake. And she drew cord across the French path In Mo- pco. Germany Steps In. rbat Germany had been successful to that degree is proved by the reement made between her and unco, dated February, 1009, In which once guaranteed the Integrity and Ilependenco of tho Moroccan empire Id equal commercial facilities for all tlons. In return Germany conceded lit Franco had predominant political forests in tho country which put her a privileged situation, and she gave France practically n free hand to litoro order and tranquillity there. I it tho most important part of tho reement lay in the last clause, which cshadowed tho association of I each and German capital in the ex iltntlon of the country's riches. It Is regrettablo that nothing tangl- 1) has resulted from tho hope ex- lessed in this last cluuse of the lanco-German agreement of 1009. lalnent French publicists have not uplcd to place tho blame for this on their own country, the internal luatlon influencing maladroltly the reign policy of tbo government The Imeroua changes in the French cabl- QUESTION IS I EUROPE POWERS I ANOTHER INVESTIGATION. England With France Against Germany In Case of a Showdowi. net have prevented any continuous policy being followed. In 1003 Ger many was quite prepared to go to war over the retention of M. Delcasse in tho French cabinet. She is evidently ready to do so again, unless the policy which he seems to favor of ignoring Germany's claims, whether they be Just or not, is exchanged for one that frankly recognizes them and endeavors to arrive at a working agreement. On two occasions Germany has given the plainest of hints that she had claims lu Morocco, one at the time of the Casablanca incident in 1003, when German deserters into tho French for eign legion were forcibly seized by the German consul; tho other on July 1 of this year, when a German warship suddenly made its appearance in tho harbor of Agadlr. The Agadir Incident. Tho action at Agadlr comes directly upon the heels of a friendly vlBlt of M. Cambon, French ambassador at Berlin, to tho Germnn chancellor, Herr von Kldcrlcn-Wnetchter, at Klssingen. If France had overstepped the limits of her mandate the Algeclras act It self provided tho means to call her to book; an appeal could have been taken to the diplomatic corps at Tangier. But as far as the outside world knows Franco has been very careful recently to inform all tho signatories of the Algeclras act of every step forward she haitakcn In Morocco. The official reason put forward by Germany for this action is tho request for protection made by certain Ger man Arms doing business In Agadlr. But tho whole country around that place has been perfectly quiet; no lives of German subjects have been in dan ger, and German commercial interests there, u in the whole of Morocco, arc very small when compared to those of England and Franco. No one be lieves that this is the real reason, which is really to be found tn German inspired and scml-lnsplred newspapers. One who hne read them with atten tion during the last few months will have noticed a growing impatience at the forward movements of Franco to ward Fez and in the Shawla region, and tho hardly veiled suggestion that tho Algeclrae compact had been bro ken by tho two Latta kingdoms and that the signatories that Is, Germany had regained their liberty of action. In other words, the Algeclras con ference had not been as successful as Germany had hoped. Tho resulting act weighed heavily upon German politics, and it had to bo superseded. France was to be cajoled into seem ing security by a passive acquiescence in her dealings with Morocco until the moment enmo when Germany thought it convenient to denounce the agree ment of 1000 rather than to keep her cosignatories to its faithful fulfillment. Spain's Fart But France's difficulty is not only with Germany; it is also with Spain. In many quarters it has been suggest ed that Spain's action is explicable only upon tho supposition that she bad the overt or tacit assent of Germany. During the recent phases of the Mo rocco imbroglio Franco has seen with a Jealous eye her association with Spain in the work of pacifying Mo rocco. Yet it cannot be denied that Spain has somo natural and historic rights in a country .that is separated from her only by tho narrow strait of Gibraltar. Although the Anglo-French agreement of 1004 was vmickly follow ed by a somewhat similar agreement between Franco and Spain, tho rivalry between tho two countries has been 111 concealed and has at times broken out into ugly, disputes. When sud denly a few months ago Spain went outside of her sphere of influence on tho Mediterranean and landed troops at Larachc, on the Atlantic coast, tbu whole French colonial party and press rose up in arms, declaring this to bo an evident violation of the Algeclras act. In view of the present provocation, and the action at Agadlr can hardly be considered in any other light, the French press has in tho main given proof of n remarkable, eang frold. It is that that gives ground for tho hope that "diplomacy" may bo ablo to ward off tho threatening conflict France's posi tion has officially been declared to bo this: Bho holds firmly and without any reservation to the principles laid down in the Algeclras agreement She sent her troops to Fez only at the earnest solicitation or Sultan Mulal Hafld him self in order to establish there law and order and to save the tottering throne of the sultan. Tho moment this is ac complished she will withdraw her troops. She is solicitous, as the man datory of Europe and the United States, for tho preservation intact of the Moroccan kingdom and tho com mercial "open door" for all nations. Germany has not $ut her demands into concrete form. She evidently be lieves firmly in tho doctrine of "take first and then talk." England's position in the contro versy Is that her alliance with France will bold in the orent of German ag cresslon in Morocco. AoeuiatlonB Against Chief of Weather Bureau to Be Considered. There is to bo still another investiga tion at Washington. Announcement is mado that tho charges agnlnst Pro fessor "Willis t. Moore, chief of the weather bureau, which have been pre ferred by James Berry, a former em ployee of the bureau, will bo consider ed shortly. Mr. Berry charges that Professor Mooro has unlawfully ex pended money In the employment of experts in about tho same manner as did Dr. Wiley. "Tho committee will take up its in vestigation of the weather bureau aft er wo have disposed of tho Wiley case," said Chairman Moss of the house in vestigating committee. "Mr. Berry has fllcd several charges against the administration of the weather bureau. I have had some cor respondence about the Odonback case, in which Mr. Berry charges that Pro fessor Moore has gone beyond his au thority in his attempt to engage the expert services of the Rev. F. L. Oden back of Cleveland in connection with the tatter's selsmographical observa tions. "I do not know that any payments have actually been made to Dr. Oden back. The committee will havo to look Into this, nnd this will be one of tho things brought up when the committee starts its general investigation of tho weather bureau." Mr. Berry filed his charges against Professor Moore nt tho department of Justice, alleging that the services of the Itev. Dr. Odenback were engaged to bo paid for out of the exigency fund of tho bureau. He declares this to be un lawful, as there is no provision In tho appropriation for the weather bureau which permits such expenditures for selsmographical information of this character. Attorney General Wicker sham forwarded the charges to the agricultural department, but made no recommendation. WANTED, A FINGER. Wealthy Woman Offers to Pay Liber ally For a New Digit.
