The doctor docs not believe that

Spain hu described us a rich country,
where the peasantry are well-to-do un

not on n their land, the chief reason they
arc behind our agricultural classes,
Their diet does not coinnrNo much meat,
although they have til unilanco of fruit, veg
etables and mead, llleo is a common aiticlo
of food. The ili-cti-u has raged most hi thu
Provinces ot Valencia and Mtirelu, In in im
parts ot which tlio peasantry havo hail
little to eat except dozen oranges. Their
ciops fulled, and they wcro obliged to
depend upon the oranges, which wcro dam
aged by a heavy frost. I'ho rice crop had also

delightful to their palate. Thevwere

some of Ilium wore a chronic smile of

brate the rttpturo with generous pota

those who favor the administration
the charge was openly made that the
article published In "thu New York
Mtiil nml l-'jnrnH was mi emanation
from the fertile brain of some genius
who cared less for finds than llnance.
A C'iiitu' reporter met a gentleman oc
cupying one of Ihe most responsible
positions under the Government, mil
who has been Idenlllled with Demo
crulic politics In New York for the
jiast fifteen years, and asked his opin
ion of thu report.
"It Is absurd," lie replied, "and
highly lidiculous lo any one who is nt
all ai'iiiiiliiled with the' real facts In the
case admitting t li tit the 'case' exists.
In the llrst place Mr. Tlldcu look not
the slightest Interest In hist year's cam

New York or National polities than n
child four years old. I le Is, I am sorry
lo say, mid 1 know what I am talking
about, absolutely incapacitated men
lallv from giving any attention to the
policy of the I'tesident, and so far in
naming any persons for Ihu port up
pointmints iti New York there is no
truth In the charge. lie has one
thought, uud that is that be is sion g.i
Ing to die, and this idea cotnpletelv
controls him to thu exclusion of all
others. Now the most amusing pari of
the article Is that portion which says
that Mr. Tllden named Smith M. WujiI
for ihu Btirvoyorshlp. William K.
Smith, thu law partner of .Mr. Wee.l,
was a strong candidatu forlhccollcclor
ship and bad Mr. Weed's hearty sup
port. I saw Air. Smith here some little
whllo ngo and had a long convert-itlon
with hini regarding the Administration
.and New York politics, uud he did not
allude to any unpleasantness of atiydj
'crlption between Tllden and Weed and

down as the sensational fabrication of
