In the the WOULD INTERFERE WITH GER- MAN CORDIALE THE LIMIT London, June efforts are being made in certain to bring about au Anglo-French alliiiuce, but tbe proposal is uoi taken ai a seriously in official circles. Sucli n alliance would, of course, destroy at once any chance ot ninintiiining good relations between England and Ger- many, and for iliis reason it is not desired by the British Foreign office. Liberals, who are anxious to culti- vate closer relations with Germany, cannot find woitls strong enough to condemn ihe suggestion which really emanates from the Uiiionisi, pariy. Ever since [he Morocco crisis, there hns been n decided split between th-tj two greiu political parlies on Hit; (luestion of foreign relations. Liberals now .want this country to lie on ly good lernis with France, and Ger- many, whereas the Unionist aim Is mi anti-German alliance. This Is signifi- cant in view the possibility' Hint the next General Election "will bring ihe Unionists back to power. The Liberal nross, in its anxiety to weaken the understanding with France, is pointing out that ar> alli- ance between [he countries must in- volve conscription for Great llriialn, but there is no doubt that such a contingency would ho welcomed by a great many people here, who maintain that Lord Haldnne's lerritorial scheme has been tried and found wanting.
