A PRETTY SMOOTH SCHEME, BUT IT WON'T WORK.
LONDON, Juno 22. Two of tho leading papers here today allege
that Germany has offered Spain one hundred and twenty-five million dollars
for the privilege of establishing a protectorate over the Philippine Islands
for twenty years, and that Germany engages to send troops enough to the

Another plan, the papers say, Is for Germany to yield hank to France
the conquered provinces of Alsace and Lorraine, which France was despoiled
of as part of the indemnity after the Franco-Prussian war. In return
for these provinces France is to Join Germany in Intervention between the
Tinted States and Spain.
In this event Franco would pay
States and get in return the provinces of Alsace and Lorraine, while Ger
many would get the Philippines from Spain.
