Loudon, Doceiuber IS). Th
morning papers very generally
comtneut upon tho gravity of tho
situation botwoon tho Uuitcil
SlatoB and Spain, brought nboul
by tho notion of tho Senate Por
oigu Kohilions Committee, in
ngreeiug to roport Senator
Cnmorou'fl resolution for tho
recognition of tho Cuban ropub-
lic. They agree, for tho most
part, iu expressing tho buliof that
President Cleveland will veto the
resolution if it is sent to him, but
that in the present touiper of the
Amoricau people the resolution
will bo passed by Congress over
tho veto with tho requisite
"In that caso," Bays tho Chroni
cle, "tho resolution will bo tanta
mouut to a declaration of wnr.
Any great powor would declaro
war, but it is diillcult to say what
Spain would do. It would be a
combat against overwhelming
odds, which could only end in tho
ouo way. Put the Spanish are
proud, and tho houso of Bourbon
fears, with good reason, that tho
Iobs of Cuba would mean the loss
of tho throne. Spain would prob
ably appeal to the powers, who
would thoreby bo placed in tho
most embarrassing position most

"If tho powora assumo a liostilo
altitude that would cortaiuly have
tho offoct of clinching tho Amori
can sontimout and of sealing tho
fato of Cuba."
Looking to " tho momentous
possibility of tho popular will
overriding President Cleveland
and tho Cabinet," tho Chronicle
tiiiuks that "it is a bad outlook
for tho relations of all nations
with tho United States. The
danger, however, is far greater
for America hoisolf than for any
other nation. Upsides, tho Senate's
action is a virtual repudiation of
tho Mouroo doctrine."
Tho Chroniclo says finally:
"Thoro is an ominous coincidence
in the fact that tho Senate deci
sion occurred on tho samo dato as

Tho Daily News thinks liltlo
but talk will come out of the reso
lulion. "Tho jiugoes," it says,

Cleveland, who can afford to bo
Tho Standard saya: "Nothing
could be moro uncompromising
than the tonus of the losolutiou.
Tho shock to Spanish pride will
bo increased lather than miliguttd
by the tender of tho President's
friendly olliccs. Forlunatoly,
thoro is tho Constitutional timo
barrior against violent measures,
und though it is much to liujiu, it
may be trusted, as in tho Venezu
elan scale, tho calm judgment of
tho Nutiou will override jingoism.
It iBditlicult to imagine how tho
Piesidont could bo compelled to

attempt would entail a very yer

Standard's article piocecds by
saying: "It would bo almost a
relief to Spniu to turn from tho
inglorious btiugglu to Mrievn hor
disasters by smiie dramatic htii ke
