A special dispatch to the Denver
News eay: "It isn't possible for
the United States to keep aloof from
the German-French controversy over
Morocco. It was in 1903 that
France and Germany came very
nearly to blows over Morocco, which
was prevented only by the active
, intervention of Great Britain. It
brought about a meeting of the great
powers at Algeciras and the United
States participated in the treaty then
framed and since called the Algeciras
"That was the first Instance of
the United States becoming a party
in any way to a treaty that involved
only European questions.
. "President Roosevelt was severely
criticised in congress at the time
for permitting this country to mix
-up in any way in European conflicts.
i "It -looks -as though the treaty of
Algeciras will bo torn to atoms within
' ' the next thirty days. Diplomats
count on the United. States being
f made a factor in efforts to prevent a
x European Tuptura, and should there'
uo wax- il can uurujy ue Kept xroxu
some sort oi participation in it.
"France counts on England back
ing "her'np in 'such an assertion of
her rights as the aggressions 6f: Ger
many may 'seem to demand. Eng-
land' is decidedly averse to Germany
getting a foothold "on the soil of
Morocco, and she will no doubt stand,
up for France until the pinch of
war is felt. Then she may be ex
pected to back down.
'The United States will give Eng
land hex4 moral support. The presi
dent seems to b,e. quite pro-English,
to 'whiclT'the arbitration treaty now
ready for the final, steps bears wit
ness. "England will move cautiously,
although France has already sought
her advice and backing. England
will consult with Washington before
a word is spoken.
. "An attache of the British em
.' bassy said:, 'Great Britain and .the
United States constitute the greatest
international moral force that has
ever influenced the world's action
and hereafter will in my judgment
be found pulling together on every
important international question.' "

An Associated Press dispatch says:
A Philadelphia woman who several
months ago washed and ironed a dirty
dollar bill so neatly that many ex
perts pronounced it a counterfeit,
was indirectly responsible for experi
ments which have convinced treas
ury officials that the government can
wash paper money, instead of always
issuing new bills for the old. Quite
a saving thus would be effected. As
one of the results of this woman's
ingenuity contracts have been let for
one laundering machine, and the
government will construct another
in Its own shops. The problem of
laundering money long ago was al
most given up as hopeless.

"We may congratulate ourselves,"
said Mr. Henry, "that when very re
cently two, proud undqver opulent
ambassadors, entered' into the ancient
capital of England amid a veritable
riot of vulgar display "and extrava
gance of wealth, rushing headlong
to the feet of royalty no serious
casualties actually occurred.
"The most serious and corrupting
aspect of the times is the tendency
of our great millionaires, still pro
fessing admiration for our republi
can institutions to shine in splendor
as great noblemen in foreign courts.
In their . endeavor to pave the way
.for. such royal ;status, the world has
been profoundly amused at the ex

system of international marriages,

men. "The time has come when this hu

Science and a personal history of his
family's experiences in that faith,
Including the story of his own tran
sition from scoffer to devout believer,
was made in the senate by Senator
Works of California. He denounced
the movement for a national depart
