File No. 2151.

Minister Gummeré to the Secretary of State.


Informs the department of the arrival of other cruisers, and that the further occupation of the town is reported from Casablanca, but that all is quiet. States that the whole country is, however, in a turmoil, and that the situation is so threatening that the minister for foreign affairs has requested that he return from the mountains, which he will do to-morrow. Adds that three French and one Spanish cruisers are at present at Tangier.
