French , Beply Conciliatory Iu
Spirit But Firm as to Ques
; tions of Principles. ' -
Pais, Sept, 12th. --Francs's reply to
Germany's counter proposals in the Mo
roccan negotiations' has hewn written
and was laid before the Fre.ich cabinet
recently for approval. The t':.sk of draw
ing up the reply proved simpler than at
first expected, doubtless because the
German' demands were such as could
not be accented by France. .- .
The Premier, M. Caillaux, after con
ferring with several colleagues .made
up his mind last night to convoke a
meeting of the cabinet for 4 o'clock
this afternoon and sent not eg to the
minister. . M, Caillanx will lay before
them, his answer to Germany, after
which it will be dispatched by special
courier to the French ambassador at
Berlin, who will hand it to the German
foreign minister, '
: It is understood that tbe raply while
written in a spirit of conciliation, isab
solutely firm with regard to tha posi
tion Francs has assumed concerning
questions of princliple from which
France will not depart a hair'a breadth.
The premier's energetic and business
like manner of proceeding ha hud a
good effect. It is regarded ai another
proof of th ? absolutely unanimity and
firmness of the government us to it
policy and as a manifestati m of the
government's desire to do the utmost
to shorten the period of uncertainty
which is having such preju licul effect
on thn markets of the world It also
removes any possibility of charges that
France by delay assisted in bringing
about further financial distress in Ger
The broad outlines of Germany's pro
posal have bi-en.xommunicaVd to the
pubi c because tbe government be
Neves that the paople have a right to
know at this period of tension what is
being dine. Foreign Minister DeSelves
has also Indicated a semi-official note
that Franc ;'s reply wjuld be a refusal
to accept Germany's conditions. In thin
French opinion appears to bi wholly
united and prepared for any contin
gency.:: : .
One point of view In official quarters
is that Germany's financial 'itua'ion.
which is expected to reach a riimax by
tho end of September, may tend to
moderate Germany's demand. '

A. M., of Jacksonville, the Confederate
veterans of Onslow county, and the

handsome two-story brick structure of
modern design, situated on a beautiful
knoll just across tha railroad track
from the business portion of the town.
The expense of erecting this buiMing
was borne by the county and tha State,
and amounted to something like $0,600,
exclusive of equipment. It h now com
plete except for the doors and windows
and the interior furnishings. The win
dows and doors would have b.en in
place -yesterday but for an unforeseen
delay in shipment, and tbe furnishings
will be installed with all dispatch.
