Salinas, Calif., .Inly 7.—Laud forces,
cavalrymen from the Monterey Presidio
and citizens adjacent to Moss Landing,
near here, joined hands today to run
down belligerent hi-jackers who killed
one member of a posse laßt night, includ
ing two peace officers, and drove the
county and state police to cover by fire
from a machine gun.
At the aiea coast guard vessels were
warned to guard against any attempts on
the part of the hi-jackers to use the sen
as,an avenue of escapd when they were
forced from their inland retreat by fed
eral and civil forces.
The flight came with dramatic sud
denness. Tlie lii-jackerg had gathered
at an unfrequented spot on the shore of
Monterey Bay to intercept an antici
pated landing of a rum cargo. A posse
started out in response to a plea for help
from Harry Livingston, a state traffic of
ficer. who had driven a shattered automo
bile into Watsonville, near here. As i
they approached Moss Landing they were
suddenly surrofand by a number of men.
and their only warning was "shoot them”
after they had established their identi
fication for the hi-jackers
X. H. liader, a merchant of Salinas,
pressed into service by Sheriff W. A.
Oyer, was killed.
The rum runners reported off shore
made no attempt to land their cargo.

FEZ, THE SACRED
CITY OF MOROCCO
City Is Objective of the Riffian Drives!
Against French and SpaniJi. I
London, July 7.—Fez, the capital city
of Morocco and the objective of the lat
est big drive launched by, the Riffians
against the French and Spanish, is de
scribed by a correspondent as follows:
Fez tlie mysterious, the sacred city of
Morocco, bides itself at first from the
stranger’s gaze. The white walls of
new houses in the European quarter and
♦he ramparts of tlie Mollah are all that
he can see from the great plateau which
runs from Mekaes to Fez. and despite
their setting of (lHj*, and on the east a
mass of snowy mountains, they seem too
insignificant to mark the limits of the
holy city. Fez itself, one of the won
ders of the world, is concealed in the
folds of a steep valley where it spreads
this way and that over the uneven slopes
like a swollen torrent that overflows all
tlie inequalities of its bed.
From the plateau there plunges down
the, valley a little river, the Wed Fez, and
on this river the city is built in literal
truth. For as soon as it enters the
walls the stream is split ; up iuto an in
finity of channels, some large, some small,
some underground, some above ground
and along these its waters are carried
through every house.
The founders of Fez a thousand years
ago knew all that water means to the
inhabitants of the desert. Their city
was to have the gift fft water, a posses
sion beyond all price. So they chose
the site and gave every house two sepa
rate supplies, one pure and clean to
drink in a thirsty land, the other to carry
away thq, impurities of the town.
The distribution of the Wed Fez
throughout the town involves an un
speakably complicated 'system of con
duits, pipes and channels. The water
rights of each house and garden defy all
classification, but the just due of every
proprietor, great or small, is preserved
by memory and tradition beyond all pos
sibility of error. There is a special
guild of water experts, and they are
called in when any question arises. The
expert whose knowledge has been gained
orally and who has no plan or written
document to guide him, can state at once
the exact position of each conduit, meas
uring with his feet the distances front
some permanent landmark.
The French have built around the town
a magnificent road which winds round
the hills above the valley, and commands
through its whole length glorious views
of Fez. , Tlie spirit in which the French
have undertaken the pacification of Mo
rocco is admirably illustrated by this
road. A highway in a country where
only a litfle more than a decade ago
there was hardly a single wheel, it is
mainly used by motor cars, which sum
mer and winter sweep along in-clouds of
dust. For the pedestrian, for the Moor
.driving, his mule or donkey, * special
path has been made close in to the city
walls, where, under the shelter of bam
boos and olive trees, he ran tramp along
peacefully as he has tramped for cen
turies in cool shade protected from the
dust and smell.
WANT MARRIAGE OF
Sanctity of Marriage Association Will
Ask Ban of Episcopal Church On
New York, July 6.—Asserting that
fifty per cent of divorces are obtained
probably by fraud or collusion and that
the divorce rate in the United States
is increasing faster than that of any
other cqunfFy, the Sanctity of Marriage
Association will ask the New Orleans
triennial convention of the Protestant
Episcopal Church to forbid the remar
riage of divorced persons.
The Episcopal Church sanctions the
remarriage of innocent parties in divorces
based on infidelity. Tlie association in
starting a move for the repeal of this
canon attacks it as unscriptural, as con
trary to the practice of the early Chris
tian church as illegal in regard to church
law. The canon compels the innocent
party to produce court records to prove

(By the Associated Press)
Paris, July 7.—Sharp checks adminis

in Morocco have materially relieved the
situation in the OV-a region.
Intelligence reaching French headquar

salutary effect on the Uffiau leaders as
well as on the tribesmen whose allegiance
to the French seemed wavering.
Abdel Krim’s followers are said to have
been so 'discouraged by their heavy losses

act to the French counter attacks.
The apointment of Gen. Stanislas Nau

Gen. Naulin, although little known to
the public, enjoys a high reputation in
his profession. He is one of Marshal
