Washington, Oct. 14. Smuggling between Haytl and Santo Domingo is not only lessening revenues which Colonel Colton. receiver of duties, can collect for the benefit of American and foreign debtor of Santo Doniingo, but It threatens to Involve him and other Americans who are working under commissions from the Morales gov ernment and to Involve this country also in the difficulties with either or both of the republics. General Morales, to seat himself more firmly as president, gave to Rod riguez domination of the province of Monte Cristi. When the United .Slatef became receiver of customs Monte Cristi saw an opportunity for money making. Goods for Haytl were bond ed through Monte Cristi, taken across the border and then taken 'back to Monte Cristi without having paid a cent of duty. Should H. F. Worley and Marlon 10.

EUROPE IS QRESTING ON B U A VOLCANO Likely lo Break Through Surface at Any Moment. FRANCE AND GERMANY MISSED WAR BY HAIRS3READTH Sensational Stories of the Dclcasse Incident Serve to Revive Bitter ness in France Against German Diplomats. Paris. Oct. 14. Public opinion ha- been wrought up during the prcsem week by alleged revelations of Great Hrltaln's readiness to invade Germany on behalf of France. These revelations following the Franco-German contro versy over Morocco and the open dec laration or Prince Von Buelow, the German Imperial chancellor, favorable to a RiiKso-Germun rapproachment have created a feeling that France was the center to dangerous enmities nd coalitions. Although the alleged disclosures did not receive the slight est official recognition they have be come the theme for discussion throughout Europe and the intli.ci tlons that former Minister Dele is.e was responsible for them led to vio lent attacks against him, one Journal going so far as to accuse him of trea son. M. Delcasse's repudiation of the reports, followed by the semi-official note of Friday saying that the "pub lished reports upon the Incidents ac companying the resignation of M. Dcl casse. and notahlv details reirardinz the cabinet council preceding his res ignation, are Inexact." .iricked the sensational bubble; but It has none the less served to excite the intense politi cal bitterness of French statesmen to the maneuvers of various Huronean powers to readjust their intentes nt the expense of Fram e. From the mass of contradictory re velations imd denials the fact stands out that the Morocco controversy toik Germany and France dangerously near the verge of war. and that Great Britain, while not officially promis ing military aid. stood ready to give France her loyal support. The, bitter ness aroused by the incident Is Indicat ed by the calling of a special meeting of the association of the Parlsl m press for October 18 to coimidei charges made that certain Journals ..I t under Influence and in t ho pay of for eign governments. Germany Expects Denial. London, Oct. 14. The press of Lon don, Paris, and Merlin continue to give prominence dally to the International stir arising from the Paris Matin's irtlcles on the Franco- German re lations. The disavowal- of their au thor, M. Lauzanne, that the articles were Inspired by ex-Foreign Minister Delcasse Is regarded as a journalistic fiction, while the denial by the Matin's London correspondent of Great Hrii- ain's reported undertaking to assist France militarily has not killed Un original story or prevented an out burst of wrath from the German press. The rterlln correspondent of the Standard now claims to have authori tative diplomatic Information that. while no responsible person In Ger many believes that Great Britain vol untarily offered to help France in thJ assumed conditions. suspicion is caused in Germany by the revelations and is now dispelled by M. Delcasse's primary responsibility for them, t'nni munlcations passed between the Brl'. Ish and German governments, says the correspondent, regarding the rev elations. These satisfied Germany so far as they went, but ttiey were verbal and Informal. Similar communica tions passed between France and Germany, but did not result In clear ing matters to the satisfaction of Germany, who seems to expect moro definite official assurances. While It Is not believed that Great Britain volunteered to support France In the event of an attack bv Germany, It Is thought possible that England answered M. Delcasse's In quiry In a manner Justifying the im pression that he could rely upon the British, and the German newspapers expect a formal statement on the subject from Prime Minister Balfour and Foreign Secretary Lansdowno when the British parliament meets.
