ground that the general' brother for

that the fact that the general' broth

of the excellent relation now oxlatlng

Frenchmen may at any rate congratu

The practical protectorate established
by Franco over Morocco ha been very
cleverly and bloodlesaly don. Of oours
th real aweeplng up procos haa now
to begin. The Zaer and other turbu
lent tribesmen are to be brought to
book, and the route, that France has
driven through the country at the cost
of millions 1 to b opened to all the
world. One of the project of the
French program 1 to form a Sheereflan
army with th element already as
sembled under French officers. Thla
will be a properly drilled and equipped
force, which will strike fear Into the
most warllk and intractable breast.
But suppose eorae day th French
march out of Fes and out of Morocoo,
what become of th tiny army? Will
It fad away or will It become a dan
ger to those who taught It? The ar
th secret of the Sphinx -of Berlin.
In any case the sultan' army la to
b furnished with French guna, with
French artillerymen to Serve them. It
la a matter of common knowledge that
French arms had been sold to th
Moor tn large quantities during th up
rising. It is declared that one com
pany ha at It head a prominent poli
tician, and that It haa been particularly
active in selling discarded rifle to the
Insurgent subject of Mulal Hafld.
Whatever may be the precise truth of
these allegation, it Is dear that a new
morrow Is dawning for this Strang and
chaotlo empire a morrow fraught with
possibilities of all sorts.
And th Publlo Pay.
In any trouble between capital and
labor or between the PI so and a ..par
ticular category of taxpayers, It 1

In point was th 14 hour strike of the
chauffeur. There was .not. a. motor
taxi to be had in Paris for a whole
day, as a protest against the rise in
the petrol tax, which ha reduced the
earning of th men from an average
of even franc a day to aomething
quit insignificant Th official really
responsible lor tne new ecuoi is mo

ha no need of auto taxis; in any case.
he Is not likely to do errectea over
