Paris (By Cable).?Germany has con?
sented to negotiate the Morocco ques?
tion with Prance. The French govern?
ment has indicated its willingness to
meet the German demands .in a concilia?
tory spirit. An international conference
will ljkrly follow, hut it will be on lines
previously Bgeed on by Germany and
France, and will not open the whole
question of the destiny of Morocco, as
the Sultan has expected it to do.
France agrees that the status quo shall
be maintained, and that the Sultan's
sovereignty shall be unimpaired. France
cherishes hopes that the terms of the

maintained, but tin s is not the German

Learns France liad No Desglus on Morocco
Par?a (By vahh-).- An international
conference for the consideration of the
affairs of Morocco i.^ now practically as?
sured as the result of the conversations
between Premier Rouvier and Prince
Radottn, the German ambassador, and
attention u now directed to defining the

Although the acceptance of the con?
ference give a certain measure of sue
to German diplomacy, yet M. Rou?
vier emerges from the controversy with
the advantage of having brought tier
many to exactly define the scope of the
conference and SO to rid it of the objec?
tion of being a menace to French inter
Germany has suspveted that France
had designs on the sovereignty of Mo?
rocco, but the negotiations disclose that
France had not questioned ?hi
eignty. Similarly it was disclosed that
France hud not designed ? <> interrupt
the present territorial or political status
quo of Morocco. This appears to have
been one of Germany's chief apprehen?
sions, as any change in Moroccos status
quo might involve an ultimate French
protectorate similar to that over Tunis.
With both governments favorable ti?
the sovereignty of MorOCCO and to lu t
territorial and political status quo, il
remains for the conference to adjust tin
equality of commercial rights, as Ger?
many desires this assurance from an
international conference instead ol
through the operations of the Anglo
French agreement Therefore, the con?
ference is not likely to consider cliang?

KILLED BY PIRATES.
Massacre of 150 Natives on Siberian Coast?
Pillage of Settlement
San Francisco (Special).?Details of
a terrible massacre by pirates of 150 na?
tives OH the Siberian en.ist has been re?
ceived in a letter from Petropavlovsk, on
the coast of Kamchatka.
A. Morogravlenof has written to his
brother, a resident <d San bran,
that in the early part of the year the
natives in one of the small .settlements
down the coast observed a yacht. Of
schooner, drop anchor in the harbor, and
its coming was bailed With cries of re?
Off the vessel came a number of small
boats. The natives could see the crew
piling what they thought were supplies
into the smaller craft. Then the men
pulled for the shore.
During that and the next day there
was heard the firing of amis, and later
smoke and tire were observed. This led
to an investigation from Petropavlovsk
and other town? on the coast, and a hor?
rible talc of pillage and massacre was
brought to light.
About the streets of the settlement.
writes Morogravlenof, were strewn the
bodies of 150 of the inhabitants, shot and
cut to pieces by the pirates, who, under
the pretense of friendship, had gaine.1 1
landing on the coast. Robbery w.is
their motive, for every hut had bien ran?
sacked, and anything of marketable value
had been taken.
Who the mirauders were, those who
managed to make their e-i-ape could not
say, beyond giving the information that
some Japanese were in the party.
When Morogravlenof sent his letter
the people of Petropavlovsk feared al
attack on that town.
