Hope Xot Yet Abandoned at Alge
ciras Thai It Will Be Broken.
Aljeciras, Spain. Feb. 22.— Although the Fran
co-German deadlock remains unbroken, the
©pinion of the delegates to the Moroccan con
ference fluctuates as to th« results, the view to
day being rather more hopeful that some solu
tion la possible. This Is largely due to toe
C«rm«n attitude that an adjustment ■will event-
Bally be reached. The American delegates also
continue confident despite the French and Brit
ish pessimism. The German delegate maintain
that tho French concessions have not been Im
portant, as France continues to assert her epe
c;a position In Morocco, whereas Germany con
tends for Internationalization and the equality
of all the powers.
Extraordinary activity reigns here. The dele
gates are exchanging constant visit*. Some of
the delegates express the view that some con
ciliating move will be made directly from Ber
lin. Ambassador White and Minister Gummert
went this morning to Gibraltar, where the Ist
Infantry Is on board the American transports
Kilpatrlck and McClellan. on their way to
Manila, and celebrated Washington's Birthday.
The American delegates returned here at noon
to attend the afternoon session of the confer
ence and resume their work toward reconciling
tte Franco-German differences.
At the afternoon Hitting the conference settled
a few minor points of the bank question, in
cluding the adoption of a gold basis.
The Italian delegates are discussing the pos- !
sibility of the appointment of a number of the i
eonferrees as arbitrators for the settlement of ,
the controversial points In the French and Ger
man projects should an agreement relative to
the majority of the details be attained.
Ambassador White persists In his optimistic ,
•lew of the ultimate results of the conference.
FEELING IN FRAXCE.
Belief That Accord Is Impossible
and Status Quo Will Continue.
Paris, Feb. 22. — government does not give
any further Indication of It* Intention* In re
irard to the Moroccan question. The tone of the
French press la that the conference situation Is
desperate, the only thing remaining being for
France to state her case and depart. However,
there in no evidence that President PaHlerea and
Premier Rouvier. both of -whom are men of an
extremely conservative and raciflo character,
entirely share the view that the conference Is
doomed to failure. The semi-official "Temps."
however, prim* a leading article saying that
•an accord is Impossible." The "Temps" adds:
"The Germans feign to believe that France will
make new advances. We affirm In the moat
categorical manner that the German expecta
tions are bMeless. M. Revolt's former proposals
represent the maximum of our concessions.
Therefore France Is resolved to repulse decep
tive resolutions. She has only to plead her cause
before the open conference, and If Germany per
sists France will content herself with the status
quo, which Is less perilous than so-called ac
Senator Cletnenceau. In th« "Aurora" to-day,
"No one expects war, but the diplomats at
Alfeciras will leave behind them a European
situation of extreme tension."
M. Judet, In the "Eclair," remarks:
"Germany calculates on our weakness or tim
idity. 6 he holds us as a hostage for Germany's
eventual conflict with Great Britain."
M. Jaures. the Bociallßt leader, makes the fol
lowing prediction In the "Humanke":
"The failure of the conference will not mean
Immediate war, but it will Inaugurate an Intol
erable state of tension and discord from which
war may result at any moment."
The "Matin" seek* to calm the apprehensions
of war by pointing out that the failure of the
conference will merely result in continuing the
status quo in Morocco.
This Is the prevailing view, In which the gov
ernment appears to participate. But there Is
good reason to believe that France's hopes Of
maintaining the status quo are likely to meet
with another serious check, as the highest Ger
man quartern Intimate that Germany will re
niet the status quo on the ground that It would
leave France Installed in Morocco. Having pre
vented Franco from gr-tting the recognition of
the powers as the future predominant power In
Morocco, Germany"* nesi move appears to be to
terminate any privileged position which France
heretofore has occupied in Morocco.

GERM AX TA RIFF BA TES.
Reichstag Votes to Extend Recipro
cal Arrangement to June SO, 1907.
Berlin. Feb. 22.— The Reichstag to-day passed
the first and second readings, without amend
ment, of the government's proposal to extend
reciprocal tariff rates to the United States until
June 80. 1907.
Chancellor yon Billow opened the debato and
said that, although tho United States was the
principal exporter of agricultural products and
raw materials, German agriculture was not so
much Interested in a commercial treaty with
the United States as was German industry and
commerce, which suffered through the high
American tariffs and by obstacles in the Ameri
can custom houses. Germany in giving notice
of the termination of the agreement of 1900 with
the United States had proposed a treaty after
the pattern of those concluded with European
Th« Chancellor said that he placed a high
value on good political relations between der
many and the United Stats, which were a bless
ing to both lands, but it would be deceptive to
believe that he would buy political friendship by
th? sacrifice of Germany's economic interests.
The grounda of the government's proposal were
that a tariff war which must only be resorted
to in cast of necessity would damage not only
Germany's shipping interests, but other impor
tant departments of Industry. Although the
United States would be Injured in its exports,
which had grown considerably, the advantage
of such a war would rest with a third country.
"We are therefore forced," said the Chancel
lor, "to ask Parliament to consent to this pro
posal, po that we may continue in peace with
the United States. The note of (Secretary Root
to Ambassador Sternburg on Tuesday shows
that the United States has the same desire for
friendly commercial and political relations that
we have. This note pays that as soon as the
G«rman conventional tariff has been granted to
the United Slates for the period expiring June
30, 1907, the President will publish a proclama
tion granting Germany a continuance of the ad
vantages of Baetion 3 of the Dlngley tariff. He
hopes that the prospect of certain alterations in
the customs regulations may be regarded as
proof of the earnest wish of the President to free
the American customs administration from the
appearance of being: severe on German exporters.
Mr. Root hopes, further, that the bill extending
the conventional rates to the United States will
give time for establishing a permanent basis
for mutual commerce under conditions favora
ble to both. Mr. Root trusts that the present
feelings of matual friendliness will continue to
exist and thrit the two countries will come to an
agreement, because both of them truly desire to
The leaders of the various Parliamentary
groups then expressed thrir opinions. Count yon
Schwerin-Loewitr, Conservative, said:
"After all Is paid, we must still regard this
mecsure as a surrender to the protective tariff
policy of the United States. We refuse to sign
Herir.an Molkenhuhr, Socialist, remarked:
"Although we are Free Traders we consider
the proposal to be necessary, and accordingly
Herr Kaempf, Moderate Radical, paid:
"Nine-tenths of German Industry, German
trfcde and German shipowners hold this pro
