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.

Sensational Stories of the Dclcasse
Incident Serve to Revive Bitter

Paris. Oct. 14. Public opinion ha-
been wrought up during the prcsem
week by alleged revelations of Great

on behalf of France. These revelations
following the Franco-German contro

German Imperial chancellor, favorable
to a RiiKso-Germun rapproachment
have created a feeling that France
was the center to dangerous enmities

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

going so far as to accuse him of trea
