AGAIN REFUSES TO PAY:
WARSHIP TO MOROSCO.
Washington, Nov. 12 The govern
ment of Morocco has again declined to
meet the demands of the United States
for payment of indemnity on account
of the" killing of Marcus Ksagin. a
naturalized American. The latest
declination of Morocco is accompanied
by the intimation of its freedom from
liability under the terms of the con
vention between Morocco and Spain.
The state department has come to the
conclusion that Consul Gunmere's rep
resentations will be more effective if
be is supported morally by the pres
ence in Moroccoan waters of a I'nited
States warship, and it is probible he
will make a visit to Fez to again pre
sent the case as a passenger on a
