the Associated 1'resa. It ono may Judge
by the things that have been said and
some of the things that have been done
tho (ipanUh people are enthusiastically de
termined to go to war forthwith with the
United States and t speedily avenge the
Insult which It Is funded has been offered
to the pride of ipaln by tho United States
senate. rViroe of tho organs of publio
opinion declare that the bankruptcy of
the Hpnnlah government would not pre
vent the Spanish people from taking up
the quarrel on their own account and fit
ting ont expeditions and maintaining
themselves at their own expense while
combating tbe "Insolence of the assertions
of tbe United States."
There seems to have been a notable In
crease of excitement and patriotic ardor
among the people since haturday, when
the news of tue senate's action was first
madeknewn. ruch a stress of feeling as
now exists. If It continue for any length
of time, cannot but afford eerious
menace to tbe peaceful relations of the
two countries. The fpanlaa authorities
seem to have felt apprehensions of the
form tlie twoolo's wrath might take, and
provided special safeguards for tbe sop-pn-Mioa
of disorders, and especially for
the protertlon of any o (Tidal represent
ative of the United Btates government.
The preparations of tbe government are
not all uf a neaeef ul character, however.
It is significant that the minister of
marine, Admiral Jose Maria Beranger,

The Imparcial aaya on the crisis: 'If

are wrong to Judge Spain by her budget.
There are things which are superior to
revenue. Home merchant captains have
offered already to arm their steamers as
privateers. A captain of Barcelona asks
for letters of marque, offering to equip and

In view of the excited state of the' pub
lic mind the United States legation In
tills city has been placed under the special
erreillanoo of the police. The student
class seems to form a large proportion of
the Inflammatory element which Is mak
ing so much noise. The students of this
city are busily, at work to organize a great
demonstration of protest against the action
of tbe United States. At Valencia the
studonte of the university paraded the
srrccta and then gathered before the
United States consulate shouting: "Death
to Uncle Sam." "Viva Spain," and
"Long live the army."
If Hon. Hannis Taylor, the United
Elates minister of Spain, had gone to tho
opera Saturday evening, he would cer
tainly have had a very unpleasant time.
Evidently some persons thought ho had
done so, for they were waiting outside the
opsra house after the porformanca was over
and bad organized a host ilo demonstration
with whlohi to greet Mr. Taylor. But
whether he considered It unwlso to In
flame the public mind by an appearance
or for somo other reason tho United States
minister did not attend tho onera.
The government has Issued an order
prohibiting the various demonstrations
which have been planned by students.
This order applies as well to all similar
demonstrations, and is taken to mean
that tho government docs not at all ap
provo of tho course tho popular ardor has
taken.' It Is understood that the Spanish
minister In Washington, Senor Dupuy de
Lome, bos horn iustrujted to make diplo
matic representations to the United States
government regarding the action of the
l nltod States senate.
WASHIXUTO IleABe, OF THE RIOT.
Mo Sarpries Felt That the Spaniards Are
Waxing Very Wroth.
Wamhxgtox. Much S. Intense Inter
est contorod here last night In the dis
patches showing the demonstrative feel
Ing existing In Spain against the Ameri
cans regarding the Cuban question and
the statement that tbo government Is In
creasing its naval force. No scrpriso was
expressed at tho demonstrations which
aeve occurred : In foot such wbcru ex
pected. The speeches in the senate, ex
tracts of which have no doubt tksen pub!
lished In the Spanish iupuH"a)saiu had
their Influence on the niassoe of the people.
Tho whole matter Is regarded here
simply as that of mob violence, for which
tbe Spanish government has not in any
manner bora responsible. So far as could
bo learned no oDlclal news had beon re
ceived hero by tho government. Steps un
doubtedly will be taken very promptly to
day to ascertain tbe situation through
state department channels, if Minister
Tsylor at Madrid or Consul Bo wen at
Barcelona do not anticipate tho official)
and meko a report. The Spanish minis
ter, Senor do Lome, heard of tho happen
ings In Spain through tbe press, and he
was besieged by tbe reporters lor an ex
pression of opinion.
He diplomatically declined, however, to
say anything for publication pending
news from hi government. The viola
tion of tho consulate of tbe United States
at Barcelona makes a disavowal necessary
by Spain and tbo United States will in
quire of the Spanish government what
amends will bo made. Tho case finds an
analogous one In an evont which occurred
In this country sixty years ago when a
mob of persons In cw Orleans assaulted
the Spanish consalate at a time whun tho
Florida question waa uppermost in tbe
pnblio mind. It was a cats of mob vio
lence and tbe government of tbe United
States oompensatea to Spain for tho
Chairman Hitt, of tbe hoiiso committee
on foreign affairs. Is confident that the at-
tltudo of our own government will bo one
of great caution at this Juncture, and It is
not probablo .that any act or expression
that may emanate from it will add to the
difficulty of a peaceable and honorable
settlement of the trouble. The danger to
be apprcnonded In his mind Is solely In
some intemperate utterances in congress
that may add to tho excitement and pro
cipltate a collision unnecessarily.
STATE DEPARTMENT INFORMATION.
Doeaat JaatUy, Is Is aaid, the Proposed
Actteei w Coagveea.
The administration's position is a mat
ter of speculation, but is as follows as
near as can bo ascertained : The informa
tion In the hands of tbe stale department
Is front United ptates consular officers.
Tbe general tendency of these reports, it
is learned. Is to establish the fact that the
Insurgent oanse Is not nearly as strong as
has been supposed In congress, and that
as conditions now exist the administra
tion would not be warranted in extending
recognition to what tt must regard as a
guerilla movement. Besides, the admin
istration U of tbe opinion,' based on the
facts rcvealod by tbe consular reports,
that If left to their own devices tho insur
gents cannot prevail against tbe Spanish
forces In Cub.
Believing that congress has been mis
led aa to the facta and carried away by
enthusiasm to false conclusions the execu
tive authorities mobably will take steps
to lay before tbe Influential members of
tbe administration party the tacts upon
which It bases its opinion that tbe United
States should not take active steps In the
Cuban-Spanish conflict at this time.
Senator Lodge, speaking of the attack
on the consulates, said to an Associated
Press representative: The news from
Spain In your dispatches is grave, for It
shows that the Spanish people and tbe
Spanish editors, utterly foil to comprehend
the situation here. They forget that they
recognised the belligerency of the Confed
eracy within thrco months after Sumter,
while we allow tea years to pass in the
last Cuban wnr and ooe year in this be
fore moving. We have shown a long for-
bearanceL wjuca oer lauea so show us.
"I cannot believe that the Spanish min
ister has been instructed to protest
against the action and speeches of the
senate. Such a step Is Inconceivable. As
Mr. Webster aaid in the famous Huls
mann letter It would be an interference
with our domestic affairs which no inde
pendent state could admit for a moment.
I trust and believe that the Spanish gov
ernment understands their situation and
ours better that these Spanish newspa
pers and popular meetings appear to,
and I have no doubt they da"

Particular cases, bowevjr, offering dif

tions arc to be referred for adjudication
to the np jstolic delegate hv Washington
instead of being scut as heretofore to tho
congregation in Rome. A telegram from
St. Paul snys that Archbishop Ireland's
atto ntion having been called to the fore
going, ho admitted that tho dec.-oa alluded
to is authentic Ho hnl himself received
an oflicial copv, and had communicated
its contents to the priests of Ins jurisdic

of the societies of Cdd Fellows, Knights

modified in t o important points.
Final Appeal ia to SatollL
First, however, Catholics who had joined
those societies before the condemnation.
and who by total severance of ties with
them would sutler serious detriment, are
now allowed to leave their names on the
rolls of the societies and pay Into them
dues and assessments, all other partici
pation, however, being still -. prohibited.
Secondly, particular cases, whero extra
ordinary difficulties arise from compliance
with the letter of condemnation, are now
adjudicated finally by the tribunal ot the
delegate in Washington.' Instead of having
to be referred to tho conzrezutions of
Borne, which, being remote, aro far less
ablo to understand oar circumstances and
complications arising from them.

What in the archbishop's opinion forms
the only gravamen of tlie church against
the societies of the Odd Fellows and
Knights of Pythias is tho religious fea
tures In them which apparently form
them Into religions sects or churches.
Those societies should leave out from their
constitutions and rituals tho mention of
altars, chaplains. Bibles, etc., and adhere.
exclusively of all religious forms, to their
prime purposes of benevolonco and broth
erly counsel. In so doing the societies
strengthen their genuine work, remove
needless and offensive barriers, and in
vite to their membership ram of all classos
and all cr.-eds.
