Grey, minister of foreign affairs in
speaking reiterated the defiance of
Chancellor Lloyd-George to Germany

of an immediate war.
Sir Edward Grey, in making his long
heralded speech in the house of com
mons regarding Morrocco, admitted
that French, English and German re
lations were "still seriously dedicate."

Addressing the consistory, the pope

The galleries were jamned. At the
onset Lord Grey intimated that Herr
Kinderlin-Waechter, the German for
eign minister, hadn't disclosed the sit
uation fully and frankly. He said
that Germany's action in sending war
ships to Morrocco when the German
subjects there were safe, was inde
fensible and apparently reopened
the entire subject of the powers' re
spective rights in Morrocco which
every one else had thought was set

TACOMA, Nov. 27.—Although there

Governor Hay will call a special ses

Though the state has several hundred
witnesses, many of them will be dis

will be. The attorneys claim to have
several methods at their disposal and
though they will indulge in exhaustive
cross examinations, the main line of
defense will not become visible until
after the state has rested its case.
