Say Kcport In a Joke.
Washington, June 9. The rumor
that the United states government in
tends to possess itself of a coaling sta
tion on the Moroccan coast as au inci
dent to the settlement of the Perdicar
is affair is regarded officially here as
a jest. There never was. aud is not
now. tin- slightest desire on the part
of this government to make such a
demand. Moreover, it is stated that it
is not intended to seize even tempo
rarily any Moroccan port or custom
An to the Landing; of Marine.
Kef erring to K report from Tangier
that United States marines bad been
landed there to protect the l!elgian
legation It is said at the state depart
ment thai there is ample precedent for
the employment of a United States
naval force for the temporary protec
tion of the exposed interests of an
other power which has no' available
force at hand. A few years ago it was
the common understanding that Brit
ish vessels should protect American in
terests in South American ports where
the United States had no warships
and that the United States gunboats
bould look after British interests ex
posed in the same way.
Gersaaa Interest. Also Protected.
We have also looked after German
interests in San Domingo and else
where. It is stated that Admiral
Chadwick In landing his marines in
Africa for the first time in hair a cen
tury therefore was but meeting the re
quirement of international comity. It
is supposed here that the Belgium le-
ation is an outlying section of the
city easily accessible to the tnix-smen
of the interior. The reported landing
has not been contlrmed and fs proba
t'nrle Sam Will Not (Guarantee.
The state department has received
unofficial assurance throngn Consul
Gnmmere, who had it from the British
consul at Fez, that the sultan of Mo
rocco will accede to all of Kaisuli's
terms. The bandit's demand that Great
Britain and the United States shall
guarantee the execution of the sultan s
promises however, is the sticking
point, and this probably can re gotten
around only by the acceptance of this
obligation by Creat Britain or France,
or some other country not so strongly
bound as the United States by Its tra
ditions not to entangle itself in the in
ternal affairs of other countries. It
is tated positively that under no eon
dtttons can the United States govern
ment execute these guaranties.
