Germany Making Herself Suspected and
Disliked by Delegates of Most
of the Powers.
The Herald's European edition publishes
the following from its correspondent:?
Algeciras, Spain, Friday.?The situation
here is intensely interesting in spite of
outward appearances,, which show that the
delegates are idle. There have been no
committee or general meetings, and, as one
of the most interested diplomats remarked
this morning, "the deadlock is complete."
And so it is, most surely. But there are
good influences at work td try to save the
situation at the last moment?not by intervention,
which is declared quite mal(
apropos and at the present moment not
accentable -or desirable, but by a. proposal
to bo brought forward, probably by the
delegate of a neutral Power, whose serI
vipes might become invaluable if all goes
L well with his plans.
Much to my regret, discretion and the
vital interests concerned forbid my telling
more at the present moment lest I
harm this desirable and satisfactory outcome
by a premature Statement.
Suffice' it to say that a suggestion made
to postpone the next plenary sitting until
Tuesday next, has been considered good
enough by the Spanish directing council,
in view of a new proposal being forthcoming,
which, unlike Germany's latest proposition,
so summarily rejected, will be
found to contain reasonable propositions
as the basis of discussion, leading to a
final understanding.
Austria's Proposal Absurd.
The Austro-Cferman proposal was quite
absurd and never had the slightest chance
of success, being merely a piece of political
impertinence, and, as the new proposal
is expected from another quarter, it is exceedingly
necessary to be remembered by
those concerned in any such excellent and
most timely efforts toward preventing
disastrous results from a break-up of the
conference, that France's long prior claims
B to her position in Morocco must'be care
E fully considered and weighed; also, in a
less degTee, those of Spain; that France's
large financial interests in Morocco cannot
be overlooked, and that anything less than
'control of the police by Fiance and Spain
cannot be accepted by these countries.
W which have the support of England and
In fact, the idea contained in clause 4
of the Austrian proposal, referring to the
appointment of a superior and neutral officer
to control the entire police force,
most disappear, and also any attempt to
dislocate Casa 'Blanca from Franco-Spanish
police control.
This must be the first step taken if any
forthcoming proposal is to have a chance
of success, because France ^'ill accept
none which will in any way weaken or
threaten that control.

Once such premises are established
France may be taken as having been approached
in a spirit which will place her
V in a mood to listen with good will to propositions
of surrender on the bank ques
tion, wherein she might split the difference
with Germany, accepting four shares instead
of the 'five she claims as toeing in
just proportion to her financial interests in
Morocco. Thus Germany would cede" on
the police a little and France the same
amount on the bank.
It would be exceedingly well now if Ger(many
would drop the mailed fist style of
diplomacy, which she has tried repeatedly
to adopt here and which has created a
feeling of much resentment among the
other diplomats.
Germany Becoming? Disliked.
Attempts made by Germany to influence
governments to cause their delegates to
vote In favor of the Austrian proposal are
also utterly condemned as an illegitimate
means to coerce the conference. They
have failed utterly with Italy, France and
Spain; not only that, but they have created
much suspicion generally of German
methods, which are said further to have
extended into giving two of those govern|
ments to understand that the sentiment
of the conference was anti-French when
it was really anti-German.
When sucii f ik i,- the rule among diplomats.
it must be evident to every one that
it is high time fdr an agreemdht to be come
to or the conferences! to be dismissed. When
people have their feelings irrita ed and
have such A lack'of confidence as the delegates
have!' evick n; iy come to feel now,
when they feel disgusted at the interminaLble
delays, simultaneously noting no prac^
tical progress toward results from the
same, then it behooves the obstructionists
to Stop tl

B appendicitis, and an immediate operation
is necessary to save its life. -Meanwhile
the assembled diplomats are resting and
rusting, cursing their eruel fate.
Great Britain's Envoy Urging France
To Be Conciliatory.
Aloe ci it as, Friday. Delegates of the
Powers to the Moroccan Conference are
moie hopeful, as the French and Germans
[after communicating with their governments
show less rigidity than they did
previous to so doing. Sir Arthur Nieolson,
head of the British mission, is exercising
an important and perhaps deais.ive influ
ence toward the agreement.
While continuing to support the French
delegates he maintains that they should
do their share toward establishing an adjustment,
and therefore advises them to
accept a modified form of the Austrian
police project, such as a modification pro^
viding that the Inspector General shall
Ik but not command the

France Accused of Attempting
to Embroil United States
with Venezuela.
Two Simultaneous Notes Sent by Envoy
and Mr. Hay Threatening
immediate Move.
When It Looked as Though Washington
Would Act at Once Paris Protests
Caracas, March 3. In view of the oft
repeated statements by the French AmjbaSsador
at Washington and by the Freijch
Foreign Office that France id1 now acting
in complete accord with the American government
in the contemplated action against
Venezuela, it is interesting to see from diplomatic
notes, now known for the first
time, that an understanding evidently e&1
isted in March last between, the representatives
at Caracas of the two governments
to coerce President Castro at the same moment.
Mr. Hay's well known ultimatum to Venezuela,
which was presented by Mr. Bowen
on March 19, 1905, appears now to have
been preceded on March 18 by the following
strange demand which was presented
to the foreign office by M. Wiener, French
Minister to Venezuela:?
'Legation of France,
"Caracas, March 18, 1905.
"Mr. Minister"Because of formal instructions
from my government I have the
honor of asking Your Excellency in this
note, and in the -most formal manner, to
protect the interests of the French Telegraph
Cable Company. The Venezuelan
government will please stop the proceedings
which it has instituted against the
said company. Please accept, Mr. Minister,
the assurance of my most distinguished
consideration. C. WIENER."
At this time the cable company was being
sued for non-fulfilment of its contract,
but the court had not as yet brought in any
judgment. When, several months later,
judgment was rendered against the company
by the annulment of its contract no
protest was made either by the French
government or by the company against it,
nor was any denial of justice claimed. The
status of the suit against the New York
and Bermudez Company was identical with
that of the cable company, when on the
I following dav VIr Bowen nrpspnte/1 Air
I Hay's ultimatum "to arbitrate or fight,"
i and which said in part:?
I "The attitude of the Venezuelan governj
ment necessitates that complete justice be
jdemanded once and for all. if the VenezJ
uelan government finally refuses to consent
to an impartial arbitration, which insures
the imparting of exgct justice to the
injured parties, the government of the
United States may lamentably find itself
obliged to take the measures that it may
judge necessary to obtain Complete reparation
without recourse to arbitration."
As the State Department at this time
had the greatest confidence in Mr. Bowen
and as this ultimatum was based on re-j
ports sent by him to Washington. Mr. Hay]
left to the Minister at Caracas the option!
of prsenting it or not as he saw fit". Mr.1
Wiener saw that the onty hope of saving|
ithe cable company iwas by either American
or French intervention, and it was
manifestly to the interest of Francfe to:
let the United States do the fighting if
possible, it was generally understood at;
Caracas at this time that Mr. Bowen]
really was led to believe that the French
government had nrcsented a real ulti
matum on the previous day, which being
the case, would have greatly strengthened
the effect of the note presented iby him.
M. Wiener, on learning that he had
caught Kis 'fish, went .to the Foreign Office
and explained ito General Ybarra that his
note was in the nature of a petition and
not an ultimatum and this, of course,
cleared the way for the sensational reply
to the American ultimatum on March 23,
which ended as follows:?
"It is necessary to know if what is
threatened is the sovereignty and independence
of the republic; that is to say,
if the United States Government respects
and recognizes the legislation of the republic
and the honor of its tribunals or
not, and if it respects and recognizes also
the arbitral agreements and solutions
which it itself, acting for the Venezuelan
government, contracted."
The French note was disposed of in a
more friendly way two days earlier because
of the less aggressive spirit shown
in it and because of the opportune explanation
of M. Wiener.
This note closed the discussion between
the two governments until M. Taigny
again brought the matter up many months
later by his now celebrated protest, which
resulted in the complete, severing of relations
with Venezuela. M. Wiener had
played his part* well. He and the French
government were satisfied that the United
j States could do nothing, in view of Mr.
i Hay's ultimatum and President Castro's
defiance, but proceed by force of arras, and
in the resulting conflict would give the
|chance of saving the cable company, which.
M. Wiener well knew was, lost otherwise. i
jFormed to Construct and Experiment)
with War Craft and Aero Club
To Be Established.
Beklix. Friday.?An airship company,
having as ids definite object 'to construct
and experiment with war craft, has been
I formed here. Among the directors are
Herr W. Rathenau president of the German
General Electric Company; Herr Isador
Loewe, head of the Mauser Rtfie and
Machine Tool Works; Herr Paul Schwabach,
of the Bleichroeder Bank, anS Herr
James Simon, a woollen manufactii rer.
This organization is a sequence ot a conversation
at the Emperor"s table some
nights ago. The four financiers mentioned
were the Kaiser s guests, with several gererals
and noblemen of the Court. The
talk turned upon the results obtained by
M. Juillot, a French engineer employed by
the I.ebaudy Brothers, of Paris, in buildI
ing the aerial machine recently tried by
the French Ministry of War and adjudged
j suitable for military purposes. The patriotic
action*of the Lebaudys in presenting
the invention to their government for
the benefit of the whole French people
was praised by the Emperor.
Out of that conversation the airship
company grew, and an aerial club will
also be formed..

Remain in Power.
First Intimation That General Intended to

Resign Was Seen in Columns
of the Herald.

[stfoial correspondence of the herald.]
Santo Dominoo, March 3, 1900.?General
Ramon Caceres will not resign the Presidency
of the republic while he is convinced
that a change of administration
would involve internal disturbances.
"We hope that the President will stick
throughout the term," said Don 'Emiliano
Tejera, Minister of Foreign Affairs. "Our
resign came through the New York HEit-j
ald, and it was so extraordinary that we
could not credit the story at the outset, i
but we found that it wds absolutely cor- J
The demand for 'Caeeres to remain was;
almost universal. His cousin, Horacio Val-
dez, head of the Horacist party and the
man in whose favor he wished to with-|
draw, was the first to urge him to reconsider
his plan, and it as to Valdoz that i
the appeals were addressed to make him j
stay. Every prominent Horaeist united in 1
the movement, and hundreds of telegrams
were directed to Valdez.
After the signatures were collected'in;
this city, a mass meeting was held in the]
Columbus plaza and then a crowd, headed|
by a band of music, marched to tiie house
where Caeeres is living. When the Presi- 1
dent appeared on the balcony surrounded!
by a group of friends. General Tulio M.)
Cestero made an ardent speech.] punctuated
by the roar and glare of fireworks, de-j
daring that he must continue the arduous
labor of saving his country. Caeeres re-J
plied, slowly,-beginning by giving the date,
famous in Dominican annals, when he1
killed General t'lysses Pieureaux, longj
President and tyrant. Pic said:?
'"Fellow Citizens?In the issue resulting
on July 26, In giving the death blow to tyranny,
I offered myself on the altars of
the country. The trend of politics, impelled,
as ever, by the impulses ol' passion,
has actually kept me in public life,
though without ambitious of any kind, and
also without aptitude.
"If the faction in which I have risen and
which so generously stood by me in the
events that occurred in December, 1903, and
if the greater number of sensible persons
ol the country judge with calm mind, without
passion, with the conscience of patriots,
that my resignation would raise a
new danger for tnis unfortunate republic
I postpone this intention until such time
as the danger ceases. I owe a duty to

Believe me that it is- with true emotion due
to gratitude that I thank you."
General Caceres later issued a public
address, saying among other things:?
"Mv motto is. 'All for the neace and
the liberty of the republic,' and It would
be neither patriotic nor proper to make;
a negative answer to the call made to!

experience arid of refined virtue.
"Events, not my wishes, have placed me!
in the high magistracy. Never have 11
nursed in my mind amoitions, nor have ij
evaded responsibilities. As a soldier cf
the country my sole vehement desire- has
been always to do my duty fully. I accept

Many of those who joined in the peti-1
tions to have Oaceres retain office would'
be glad enough to' have him go if they
believed his successor could take office
without having a revolution on his hands.!
Some prominent merchants are especially'!
anxious to be rid of him, as they believe'
that no other President would retain in
office the present Minister of the treasury,
Federieo Velasquez, while there seems lit-,

as long as Caceres remains.
