AGREEMENTJOT IN SIGHT
France Has Monroe Doctrine for
Algeciras , Jan. 23. Tlie confidential
xchangcs now going on among the
representatives ot the powers dis
closes the extreme dilllculty of arrang
ing an agreement that both Franco
and Germany would accept. The Ger
man delegates put torward the at
tractive principle of disinterestedness -
ness and equal privileges lor all coun
tries. The French delegates , on the
other hand , maintain that France can
not be disinterested. They alllrm
that having followed an active policy
In Morocco for eight years and having
obtained numerous advantages , France
should not now be asked to take the
same position as all the rest of the
Franco virtually enunciates la a
modified form the principle of the
Monroe doctrine in northwest Africa.
8ho has acquired and held a position
toward Morocco that , according to
her view , makes equal political Influ
ence with other powers finpossible.
On the question of economic equality ,
she says "yes , " but on that of po
litical equality she answers "no. "
Germany insists on political equal
ity with even more tenacity than she
does on economic equality. The main
struggle , however , is over the polit
ical future of Morocco. France would
rather withdraw from the conference
than tie up the political destinies of
Morocco by international control.
