I must ask you to give me this positive
promise In writing It Bellamy is to continue
In the service, and If you even uninten

Bellamy's resignation, for 1 can no longer
afford to have the chance of scandal being
brought on the entire American diplomatic

such Indiscreet and ill-advised action as
youra has been.

CINCINNATI, Dec. 8.-When Bellamy
Storer was shown the dispatches from Chi
cago detailing tli subs'ance of his com
munlcatlon to President Roosevelt. He
said: "I have not one word to add to the
dispatch. I merely wish to state that the
letter was given to the press without my
knowledge or consent and against my In
clination. I may say that- all trip copies
of the letter sent oat were clearly marked
'private' and If the letter was given to the
press from the White House my hands
are clean in the matter."
WASHINGTON, Dec. 8. No direct stale
nitiit k-iuili.g on the Issue raised ui the
that Moorish Independence accompanying
the virtual abeyance of bis authority means
only confusion and disorder. That Is the
direct outcome of the sudden teal for tho
sultan's rights, which unfortunately ani
mated the German emperor on the occasion
of that famous visit to Tangier. The sub
stitution of a nominal European control for
the very undefined but very real restraint
formerly exercised through Moorish dreud
of French bayonets has been productive of
nothing but mischief. The evil will have
to be remedied, but Just how It will or can
be cured is not obvious. The French and
Spanish governments are understood to be
concerting measures calculated to restore
order. But In view of Raisu'.l'a notorious
ambition, his energy and his widespread
Influence among the hill tribes, It Is certain
that any such measures, to be effective,
must be vigorous, and none of the great
powers Is anxious to be entangled in the
grave responsibilities of an armed Inter
vention. However. It is agreed in diplo
matic circles, not only here, but through
out nil Europe, that something must be
done, and that something must be done
without loss of time. It Is hoped here that
the results of the Aitiecirss conference,
even thouyh they may threaten the peace
of Morocco, will not threaten the peuce of
all Europe once again.
