ALL An Unlimited Political Sway—The Fatherland Acquires New Colonial Domain in French Congo. Berlin.—The Moroccan crisis is to all intents and purpose» a closed in cident. . War has been averted by a generous giving, and taking on both sides, France emerges from the controversy moeftrch of all she surveys in Mo rocco with the absolute unlimited po litical «way there which she coveted "Germany receives adequate safe guards for the commercial ambitions for the sake of which' Ihe stirred up the entire dispute. The fatherland, in addition, acquires a new colonial domain in the French Congo over 150,000 square miles in extent "compensation" for the renunciation of her political aspirations in Mo rocco itself. The Moroccan imbroglio bristled with the possibility of war, even as late as September 12. It was the knowledge that the kaiser's mighty war machine was primed which pre cipitated the "black Saturday" panic A hundred troop trains stood ready pointing toward the French frontier. Hundreds of thousands of civilians liable to military service had secret orders where and when to report. When the history of the crisis which convulsed Europe since July 1 is written, the converting of war will be ascribed mainly to two causes First, it was insisted on by the kaiser that the dispute with France should be resolved without bloodshed; see ond, the great banking interests left the kaiser's government in no doubt that war could not be dreamed of this time unless German honor was irrevocably at stake. That danger was far nearer than the world at large reali"ed. It was brought on by the conviction that England was egging France on to re sist German claims. There has been no such deep-seat ed universal animosity for anything British since the Boer war.
