and marines on board to various
points on tho Moroccan coast for tho
protection of foreigners. Under tho
terms of tho Algeciras convontlon,
theso two powers are charged with
the policing of tho seaports of Mo
rocco, and their action at Casablanca
has brought no protest from any pow
er. Tho states of Europe have ox
pressed their willingness that Franco
and Spain restore order in Morocco,
no other countries being Involved,

tion to do so was given. Tho force

ter. Tho Galileo at once opened upon
tho Moo-s. Sho was joined at 11
o'clock by the French cruiser Du
Cliayla, and both vessels fired until
2,000 rounds of ammunition had been
expended. This fire is said to have
i been disastrous to the Arabs
i The batteries ou a fort at the mouth
of tho harbor fired on one of the
' French cruisers, but It was quickly
, silenced and reduced.
I A second French landing party
went ashore and joined the first party
at the consulate. A third party from
, the Spanish cruiser Don Alvnro do
Bu7un was landed and occupied the
Spanish consulate. Tho European
quaiter of Casablanca was not dam
aged. Tho remainder of the European resi
dents of Casablanca aro either at thoir
respective consulates or liavo taken
refuge on hoard u German and English
j vessel In the harbor.
i Franco and Spain have agreed on
' tho terms of a Franco-Spanish note,
j informing tho powers signatory or the
Algeciras convention, including the
, United States, of their Intention to
keep within tho terms of tho conven-
' tiori In dealing with the situation in
