It is pointed out that the  Madrid congress of 1880 fully defined  international   relations   towards   Morocco, and that Germany's calling a  new  congress  would,   it is  claimed,  amount  to further evidence of    Germany's unfriendly course. The authorities here lake note of what they regard as an apparent effort on     the  part of Germany to secura the  co-operation of the United  States in    the  Morocco-.'question, but they,'feel'satisfied   that    tlie  United    States     will  hold  aloft  from   active  participation  in  the controversy.

Baron Von Speck-Sternberg  yesterday. Germany's    action  in  singling out the United States for  an official notification of her attitude towards Morocco, has created  some feeling in,official circles, where  no attempt is made to conceal the  leaning' /of Great Britain toward  France in the Morroccan crisis. The.  memorandum of the American government is generally regarded in  London as a bid on the part of Germany for the United States sympathy and support in maintaining the  open door and the status quo.  While thsre is intense interest in  the situation and the Morroccan  question is discussed in all its  phrases ^in diplomatic circles, the  British government is not taking  any part., in it, merely waiting the  next move.  A well informed official of the British government informed the Associated Press today, that France  would continue her policy in Moros-  co, and it is firmly believed that the  next step on the part of France is  likely to develop a climax, and will  bring the situation to a head.

'I he,opinion was expressed that contribution's for''the purpose would be  just" as liberal as for the local show.
