The Chamber of ('ouimerce secured the
tonnage, which was a foreign bottom for

to the Senator to have the foreign as

it is the senator to go further, anil se

EVENT MAY INFLUENCE
IT IS CONSIDERED LIKELY THAT ROUVIER WILL CONTINUE HIS PRES
ENT POLICY IN MOROCCAN CO NFERENCE UNTIL A SUCCES-"
SOR IS APPONTED, AND NEW CABINET NAMED
FRANCE WILL NOT RECEDE.
PAUIS. Mulch 7. Like a bolt from a
clear sky the Rouvicr miustry was de
feated in the Chamber of Deputies to
night and immediately resigned.
The Cabinet crisis comes at a rno't
dramatic moment, when the Franco
German contest has reached a decisive
stage, and may exert an important ad
verse influence on the Algeeiras confer
ence and tin European affairs.
The defeat came on a comparatively
minor debate over church disorders, pre
cipitated by the killing manifestant in a
bloody riot at Doeseliepe during the tak
ing of an inventory of church property.
Premier Kottvicr a-ked the support of
the government in bis course, and when
a vote was taken it was lost, by thirty
three votes. After the vote, the Eouvier
ministry met at the foivign ollice where
it prepared a joint letter of resignation,

GRAND JURY INDICTS

at Caldwell today the grand jury re
turned indictments against all the men

of Steve Adams. It is understood they

other man whose name is not yet learn

conservative elements an opinion. One
side considering him too lenient, and the
other too vigorous in the execution of
lrior to the cabinet crisis the Franco
German controversy seemed to be in
the balance with inclinations strongly
toward agreement. All dependent upon
Germany's last word. If she conceded
the Moroccan police to France- and Spain
the agreement is a ur-'d, but if the con
dition involved further concessions,
France, whose pride is already much
aroused, is prepared to reject it.
Prior to the resignation the foreign
ollice stated positively if the Germany
concession is conditioned upon interna
tional supervision it will not be accept
ed. After the crisis no one is able to
indicate the course of the government.
It is believed that until a successor is
chosen Kouvier will continue his pres
ent policy at Algeciras, which has been
several times endorsed by the Chamber,
as it is thought internal politics should
not be permitted to interfere with
Frame's foreign policy, and besides,
