LONDON. Nov. 27. Sir Edward Grey,

cleared the political atmosphere and
poured oil on the waters of the Anglo
German relations In a upeech in the House
The foreign secretary reviewed the
whole episode, from the sudden appear
ance of the German gunboat Panther in
the port of Agadir up to the signing of
the Franco-German treaty. He unflinch
ingly upheld the attitude taken by the
Hrltish government, but at the same time
declared that Its action was never an
tagonistic to Oecmany or to any settle
ment it was able to arrange with France
which did not threaten the rights of Great
Sir Edward Grey made no secret of the
fact that the situation had at one time
been very tense, but thought his state
ments today would prove a sedative to a
world, which had been Indulging. In a
fit of political alcoholism, and that the
time had arrived for It to get and to keep
cool and sober.
No ecret Treaties.
Great Britain had no secret treaties
anil both France and Russia knew per
fectly well that British public opinion
would not support -any provocation or
aggressive action against Germany.
German strength was In Itself a guaran
tee that no other country would seek a
quarrel with us; but If a nation has the
biggest army In the world and a very
big navy, and was going to build a still
bigger navy, then that nation must do

"I do not believe that Germany has
such designs and, all we or other neigh

Tnkrn hf Surprise,. .
At th outset tie told the house, that
Herr von Klderlen-Wasohter' disclosure
pf the conversation which had taken
place between tu (IcimAn 'ambassador
and himself had taken him by surprise, .
Ia diplomatic procedure It was most
unusual to make public any-, such, conver
sation without consulting the other party
and he knew nothing whatever of Herr
von Klderlen-Waechter's Intention until
he read the published account.
He did not make any complaint, how
ever, as he understood that the exigencies
of the situation in Germany precluded
any such consultation.
The communication made to the RrlUsh
foreign office by the German ambas
sador, Count Paul Wolff-Melternich on
July 1 in regard to the dispatch of the
German gunboat Panther to Agadir In
southern Morocco and the ambassador's
explanation In regard to that matter,
continued Sir Edward Grey, made . It
clear that Germany regarded a return to
the status quo in Morocco as Impossible
and that Germany's real objective was. a
definite solution of the whole Moroccan
States British I'oslllon.
On July S Sir Edward Grey Informed
the German ambassador that the situa
tion caused by the dispatch of the
Panther to Agadir waa so serious and
Important that It must be discussed at a
cabinet council, and on July 4 he told
Count Wolff-Metternlch that Great
Britain waa not able to take up a dis
interested attltudo concerning Morocco,
nor to recognise any new arrangement
without its consent.
A long silence followed and the next
conference between Sir Edward and
Count Wolff-Metternlch took place on
July 21, when the British foreign office
told the German ambassador that the
Ilritlsh government adhered to hla state
ment on July 4.
Sir Edward Grey also told Count Wolff
.Metlernlch on that occasion that the
British government knew that a recti
fication of the Congo was proposed as
the basis of a settlement between Ger
many and France and said he thought
the matter might be arranged on such
a basis without affecting British inter
ests. Sir Edward Orcy pointed out to Count
Wolff-Metternlch that in the event of
the negotiations with France fatllpg,
Great Britain would be obliged to take
some step in order to protect British in
The German ambassador was not In a
position to Impart uny Information to
the British foreign office but he depre
cated the assumption of possible damage'
to British Interest and raid he was sure
that his government had no Intention of
acquiring commercial monopolies.
