London,-June 20.���������The lawn  tennis  tournament opened at  tlie courts of  the all-England club today at Wim-  bleton.   The     presence    of  so   many  champions and former champ'ons   of  America and     other countries gfC'es  the  meeting  more international      interest than ever before.  On all sides  it   is conceded   that  the  most   formi-  dible competitors  the  British  cracks  will have lo meet are the Americans  who have just captured the all-London championship, anil whose brilliant  performance seems  to indicate    that  England's  chances  of  retaining      the  champion-ship      honors   or   the   Davis  trophy depend entirely T-n the performance of .the brothers  Doherty.      In  ihe jingles first round,  S.  II. Smith  beat  lloleoinhe  Ward   0-1,   G-.'l,  S-0.  Smith is Ihe Welsh champion. 111  11)00 he reached the semi-fiiinls in  the all-England championship. In the  second round of -Ihe singles, Reals O.  Wright, of iHoslou, heat Nimonds 11-2  l!-I, .0-1.    The  second  round  of      the  ing a Conference is clear proof that  we have 110 wish for war with  France.-,: When a nation ^wants war it  cannot ask for a . Conference at the  .same time. If we wanted war -with  France we would have regretted that  that Delcasse fell, since, hc was the  greatest ' obstacle to good relations  with France. ".On the contrary, M.  Del.easse's removal ,an<l (Premier Ron-'  vier's -decision to retain the foreign  porffolia gave great satisfaction in  German official circles, because we  saw in these steps a guarantee of  improved relations. "  Paris,   June 27.���������The council       cf  ministers today considered   the  'tallies   of   the   Franco-German   negotiations.       Premier Rouvier announced  that     he expected  to have a    ��������� 'er-  ply seeks to leave   the conference free  lo  reach   their own conclusions,     it  tends- to 'facilitate fremch regulations  of the Moroccan frontier' adjacent to  Algeria.    Although 110 official ���������statement has  been given out concerning  fhe i nf ent ions of ��������� France, it is      the  general ieeling in diplomatic Quarters  that   an   agreement   will   be  reached  on   a bfcsis   of a conference..  St. Pelershurg, June 27.���������(G p.m.)  ���������Private despatches from Paris say  that Germany has achieved a diplomatic victory over France by reaching an agreement with Premier Rouvier for >.\ settlement covering "iio^t only .Morocco, but ol-hicr questions by  which it is presumed Germany, like  Great Britain, will secure compensation  for qii it-claim ing her interest; in  ence later  with Prince Von RadjlLn,  Morocco.
