PARIS. Oct. IS. The French government
continue silent concerning the alleged
revelations of Great Britain's offer of,
naval and military aid to France If Ger
many assumed a belligerent attitude over
Morocco. In the meantime the newspapers
add new phases to the disclosures. The
Figaro gives a detailed version even more
sensational than the previous alleged
disclosures of the Matin. It says
that the previous report of Great
Rrltaln offering to mobilize its navy
and land British forces In Germany is not
correct, but that the. actual occurrence
was aa follows
"Before the Moroccan crisis became
scute the British government made three
distinct overtures to learn if France was
disposed to conclude a treaty of defensive
alliance. France declined to consider the
question. Later when the Moroccan crisis
became acute Paul Cambon, the French
ambassador to Great Britain, reopened the
question and obtained verbal assurances
from Secretary Lansdowne of Great
Britain's effective concourse In the event
of a conflagration. M. Cambon was there'
upon able to announce to M. Delcasse (who
was then foreign minister) that if a casus
foederis (case Coming within a treaty)
was desired, Great Britain would reiterate
Its assurance In writing.
Italy Teed as Intermediary.
The German ambassador in London
Count Wolff-Metternlch, learned of these
assurances and Informed Berlin. Emperor
William decided on a counter move and
made Italy the medium of Its execution,
He Informed Italy that any treaty whereby
Great Britain gave France military sup

a casus belli.

Wonld Insure Deposits.
At today's session discussion of practical
banking questions was opened by C. P.
Allls of the Second National bank of Erie,
Pa., who advocated a system of Insurance
for national bank deposits. He said that
an annuul assessment of $100 paid by na
tlonal banks would have paid all losses to
! depositors from bank failures In the last
five years, besides leaving a surplus of
$27,000,000, and that an annual assessment
of $225 for the last forty years would have
paid all special losses during that period,
Mr. Allls said the fact must be recognised
that there is an underlying current of
mistrust of banks pervading every com
munlty. This Is augmented by the weekly
report- of bank failures. Mr. Allls Indi
cated that the best way was to have the
government supervise the Insurance.
The discussion was continued by other
members. One believed a surety company
should do the Insuring.
It was maintained by Mr. Campbell of
Indiana that congress had no power to
guarantee or protect an individual.
Mr. Robinson of the First National bank
of Wlnfield. Kan., believed that a strict
observation of the national bank act would
obviate many failures. He hinted that In
many instances loans were made In excess
of legal restrictions.
The discussion ended without action by
Harvey D. Goulder of Cleveland then
spoke on "Our Commerce."
Address by II. I. Goulder.
Transportation, Its availability on equal
terms to every one, its extension by every
legitimate means, is one of the great ques
tions. ' It would be idle, to raise wheat or
corn or cotton or to mine iron ore and
copper, raise cattle or bring forth any of
the products of the forest, the farm or
the factory, without that exchange which
depends primarily, almost absolutely, on
transportation. We In the Great Lakes
region boast cheapest transportation tn
ships which bear comparison with any In
the world, with credit of being the finest
working fleet afloat, and this beyond fair
argument has come through direc t govern

REFUSE TO ENDORSE JEROME j
Republican Convention la Sew York
t'oanty dominates Charles Flam,
mer for District Attorney.
NEW YORK, Oct. IS. -The republican
conventions to select candidates for the
various offices In the Borough of Manhat
tan and New York eotinty were held to
night. Before the conventions met the ex
ecutive committee of the county committee
discussed for two hours whether or not the
county convention would endorse District
Attorney Jerome. Although there Is no
offlrlnl relation between the borough and
comity conventions they are substantially
the same, and until the lenders who made
up the executive committee could settle the
Jerome question both conventions were
blocked. Of the thirty-seven members of
the executive committee a dosen were In
favor of Mr. Jerome and Insisted that ho
should be renominated for the office which
he now holds. The balance of the commit
tee was bitterly oppored to his candidacy.
As no satisfactory arrangement could be
arrived at, a message was sent to William
M. Ivlns, the nominee for mayor. Inviting
him to appear before the committee and
express his views. Mr. Ivlns made a long
speech In favor of District Attorney Jerome
saying that he was very anxious for the
election of Mr. Jerome as his runnlmj
mate In the campaign. It would afford him
great personal gratification, he said, but
even so, he added, he did not wish the
members to feel that his personal feelings
should rule and he would be willing to abide
by their vote. Several other members spoke
In favor of Mr. Jerome. Among these was
Chairman Hatpin, who urged that Mr.
Jerome should be selected. A vote was'
then taken on the proposition and It re
sulted In 27 to 8 against Mr. Jerome's nomi
nation. On the call for nominations In the county
convention for district attorney Charlea
Flammer was placed In nomination by
Abraham Oruber. The mention as a can
didate of William Travers Jerome by R. IC.
Prentice set the convention In an uproar,
but again the roll was called and Jerome
received only 9 votes against 237 for Flam
mer. Mr. Jerome said when told of the result
of the convention: "It has not happened In
my memory when a man has been so hon
ored and received such an endorsement as
has been practically unanimous In the op
position of the district leaders of all polit
ical parties in this city."

WASHINGTON, Oct. 1J.-C Special Tele
gramsThe department of Justice today
accepted the resignation of Judge Eugene
Tucker of the ' territorial supreme court
of Arizona, and the president directed the
appointment of Judge Paul Jessen of Ne
braska to succeed him.
Judge Jessen Is one of the best known
lawyers In the south Platte country, being
Judge of the second Judicial district of tho
state. He was a prominent candidate for
governor when Governor Mickey was nom
inated and the appointment. It Is believed,
will give most general satisfaction. The
appointment was made at the ins. once of
Senator Burkett, who was determined to
not only hold the appointment for Ne
braska, when It whs learned that Judge
Tucker had to go, but to secure the ap
pointment of one against whom there could
be no possible objections.

International Sanitary Treaty.
An Important step toward the prevention
of contagious diseases was taken today
when the members of the International
Sanitary convention accepted the forty-nine
articles of the Parts convention of Decem
ber 8, 1902, with only a few modifications,
required by the conditions ln tropical coun
tries. The articles, which are now en
grossed tn Spanish and English, will be
signed by the delegates tomorrow morning,
and when ratified by the different South
and North American governments there
will be on practically all of the American
continent one system of quarantine and
preventive measures. This Is calculated
to put an end to the evil of good work in
one state being undone by the negligent
methods In a neighboring state. It waa
