Tho Queen Regent, in Person,
Reads Her Speech.

With tho Cuban Situation.

Madiud, May 12. The new eortes met
Monday. Great interest was manifest
ed in the speech from tho throne, open
ing the session, which it was known
would deal at length with the situation
in Cuba. Tho speech was read in per
son by tho queen rtgent, representing
tho youthful king. Among othe'r things,
the queen said:
What the conscqucnco would bo of
tho substitution of tho sovereignty of
Spain over races nearly balanced and
with irreconciliable character, there
is no statesman who will not foresee.
The final result would be that Cuba
would make a stop backwards in civil
ization. It would be an error to imagine that
tho interest of tho country and com
merce in and out of tho island of Cuba
could in such conditions prosper or con
tinue in existence.
Tho Spanish nation, in the meantime,
is not going to be indifferent to the
future of those of her sons, misguided
by improvident political ambitions, and
she will, not abandon the mission
of civilization that she has im
posed upon herself, and that she has to
this moment accomplished, and that her
history and honor imposed upon her;
and much less will she deny the rights
and advantages demanded with reason
to those inhabitants of tho Antilles,
who, forming in the different political
parties have indignantly condemned
the insurrection from the first moment,
being morally and materially by the
side of the metropolis and have shed
their blood for her.
When peace will bo reached, to con
solidate it it will be necessary to give
to both islands, Cuba and Porto Rico,
an economical and administrative per
sonality, with a character exclusively
local, but that will make possible the
total intervention of the country in
its peculiar affairs while maintaining
untouched the right of sovereignty and
untouched tho necessary conditions for
its existence. To that end will the
government bind its steps if that line
of policy merits the approval of tho
I have the greatest satisfaction in in
forming you that wo maintain ex
cellent and cordial relations with all
the foreign powers.
The correct and friendly conduct of
the American republic in the presence
of the Cuban insurrection is a good
proof that every day the ties are
united closer with Spain. In
the United States, notwith
standing the great efforts
that a part of public opinion has suc
ceeded in making in a contrary sense,
the president and his government, have
not departed from the line of conduct
that corresponds to the loyal friend
ship that has existed between the two
countries from the beginning of the
New testimony both of predilection
and fatherly love of the supreme pon
tiff which have been received by tho
blessing of our expeditionary army,
have increased the gratitude inspired
by our filial sentiments.
The government will report to the
eortes tho treaty of peaco and friend
ship negotiated with the republic of
