Prompt ratification of tho treaty
would have avoided this entangle

both Spain and Germany hove
some grounds for action to protect
their own interests.
The cables announcing the pro
clamation of a republic did not
create much disturbance as Agui
naldo proclaimed lm independence

Statos, pending the disposition of
tho treaty, woold consider recog

as a direot violation of a solemn
