The horrors or the looting of Casa Binnen by native tribesmen tire be? coming known today and their recital is inflaming the minds of the natives against nil Europeans, The situation In various coast towns is worse. Tho natives are excited. A holy war Is being preached at Rabat. Anil foreign sentiment is growing. There Is fear of a general outbreak. A number of European families arc prcpamg to flee from Tangier. The Angora tribes? men In the Immediate vicinity of Tan? gier are restless and may get out of hand. The Moorish authorities have practically no control of the situation. There are many complaints among the Europeans thai Franco acted in? advisedly at Casa Rlanca in bombard Ing that town before protection could be arranged for the Jews and Euro? peans there nnd elsewhere on the coast and in the interior. The news from Casa Bianca while conflicting as to Hie situation there today unites in showing that the bombardment was continued for lon? ger than first supposed and that the lack of nn adequate French force to afford protection resulted in an op? portunity for looting, rapine and pil nge with nil the accompaniment of murder. The greatest anxiety pre? vails here regarding the situations In the various eoast towns. The native troops are regarded as unreliable and if n general outbreak occurs the re? sults are likely to be most serious.
