It Was AU la Groups or Figures And Toes
Many Hoars to Restore It To Good En
. elish Unsatisfactory, bat Oar Gov
ernment Will Rest.
Washixgtox, Oct. 24 The event ot
Wednesday atthe state department was
the receipt of the long-expected cable
gram from United States Minister
Woodford, at Madrid, transmitting the
answer of the Spanish government to
his representations in the interest of
peace in Cuba. This message began to
come in installments at two o'clock
yesterday morning, and it was nearly
noon before it was all in and at the
state department. It was not the
length of the message that oc
cupied the wires all that -time, but
the fact that it was all in groups of
figures, and that it was probably being
filed in small batches as it was turned
into the'complicated state department
cipher in Madrid. All of this work
had to be undone at the state depart
ment and the message translated from
the cipher back again into good En
glish. This occupied nearly all of the
day, so that it was half-past three
o'clock before the first fair copy of the
message was turned out.
It was not so long, in fact there were
a little less than 1,0'JO words in the
message, for Mr. Woodford, instead of
cabling the whole of the Spanish
answer to his note, had contented him
self with reducing the matter to a

From unofficial information that has
reached certain administration officials
in advance of this message of Mr.
Woodford's as to the nature of the
Spanish reply, it is evident that in
neither language nor subject matter is
the communication likely to be taken
as offensive by our government. It
may be, it is true, regarded as insuffi
cient to meet the issue presented by
Mr. Woodford in his note, but officials
of the state department say that, in
view of what has already been ac
complished by the new Spanish cab
inet in reforming abuses in Cuba, in
reducing Weyler, and in projecting
what appears to be a liberal measure
of autonomy, our government will cer
tainly rest, at least until congress as
sembles, and afford the new Spanish
government a reasonable time to carry
out its plans.
