Duke of Veragua on Our Rela
tions With Spain.
Hopes tho Trouble Over tho Cuban
Question will Die a Natural Death.
Bpaln -will Not Allow Interference In Hot
Domestic Affairs Believes the Amerl.
enn l'eoplo anil Congress Do Not Un
derstand tho Motive of f he War.
Madrid, March 31. Our one-Um
guest, the duko of Vcragun, lineal de
scendant of Columbus, has been inter
viewed on our relations with Spain.
IIo said that it was his earnest hope
that tho troublo between tho United
States and Spain pver Cuba would die
a natural death. "Spain," ho said,
"has had great provocation for tho ex
pression of resentment against the
United States. I am justified in saying
that tho action of congress seems tc
have been tho insult of the century.
Tho only explanation I can find is thai
, tho American people and senate must
not understand tho motives and con
duct of tho war in Cuba.
"Whatever tho outcome, I trust that
tho idea of justice to Spain will pre
vail. Even though war should come
between Spain and tho United States,
and even were it possible that, as a re
sult, tho Spanish nation should be
wiped off tho face of the earth, still
tho namo of Spain would never bo for
gotten, but would go down through
history revered and rospectcd, as long
as thero wcro such a place as Amorica
with the benign shadow of a Columbus
upon it. I do-not belicvo that even tho
American senators had forgotten in the
excitement of tho moment what their
nation owes to Spain.
"Spain will never allow interference
in her domestic affairs. Even should
any other countries which have inter
ests close to thoso of Spain come into
this quarrel, Spain would still resist
any interference to tho last drop of
blood of her subjects and to tho last
centime of her money."
Asked what would bo a graceful and
appropriate way for tho president of
the United States to got out of the dif
ficulty, tho duko replied: "Do nothing
and let it dio out. I can not conceive
that congress will force him into any
