the case of Cnba.
It is recalled that sach warning as this preceded the Spanish-American
war, culminating In the fames message of president MeKlnley which
referred te "Intolerable conditions ex teting at ear doorway.'
"it fctill is hoped and believed by administration officials, however, that
Sunday's notes will have a sobering effect en the passions of the factions
and that It will net he necessary for the American government to consider
