GERMANY AND FRANCE. HOW THE CRISIS WAS SUR-MOUNTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 12 May 1906
GERMANY AND FRANCE. HOW THE CRISIS WAS SUR MOUNTED. Few people, wrote the "Express" cor respondent from Algeciras, on Feb ruary 21st have realised how near the Moroccan Conference has been to a sudden failure, followed by a possible war which would have set Europe ablaze. Germany's complete rejection o£ the French policing proposals, followed by her Impossible scheme for establishing a national bank, fell like a bomb In the diplomatic camp. One of the delegates tells me that the fcelit.g experienced by the representatives ot the neutral Powers was one of consternation. For the moment it was felt that the confer ence had come Irrevocably to an end. There were grave conversations as to the action the French delegates were likely to take. They had been sub jucted to unendurable irritation by the stubborn silence of Germany, and after weeks of earnest negotiation had thus been finally flouted. A spark would have started a conflagration. Happily there were other powerful in fluence at wo...

Now I-would like to uak, Was.not the recent meeting at Mitta gong of a purely public nature, since it was presided over by tho Mayor, in tho public • hall of thi town ; and had not the enthusi astic lady oollcctors solicited help for tho movement quite irrespective of whether tho paventB had children attending tho school or not?
