Depends on the First Fight.
Madrid, April 13. Governmental and
diplomatic circles are anxiously txrect-
ing developments at Washington. Tfce
cabinet council sat yesterday to discuss
the text of the speech from the throne,
to elect a number of life senat rs, and
to settle other parliamentary details for
the forthcoming session. The city is
tranquil. Kl Crrea (Ministerial) says:
"It is reported from Washington that
In the event of the senate's resolution
prevailing President McKir.ley will
avail himself of his privilege of ten days
ere giving the resolution his approval,
provided he does not employ the actual
veto. Amid much excitement the note
of war w ith Spain prevails at Washing
ton, but further delays will prohabiy oc
cur owing to parliamentary routine or
President McKinliy's vacilliation."
El Epoca (Conservative), discussing
the question of pirvatecrlntr. says:
"Spain cunnot lawfully be prevented
by Europe from employing the rlcht.
having rcsorvo.1 her liberty of action at
the time of the declaration of Taris."
That Forlorn Hope in Cuba.
El CorreocFpanol (Carlist) argues that
as the pope "has not interferred to re
duce the rebels to obsdierce to Spain"
he "will not a fortiori interfere to pro
tect the present dynasty." All circles
are exercised intensely In expectation
of the result of the visit to the insur
gent camp of the commissioners cf the
insular government. l!y most people
this commission is considered a forlorn
hope and the general public anticipate
El Heralilo, printing out the bizarre
position of Pcnor Tolo y Kcrnabe at
Washington, rays: "Spain's minister Is
stepping his ears and closing his eyes
whilr? the government to which he is
accredited passes resolutions ignoring
his country's prescriptive right."
AY hat Tliry Will O.Ter ihe Kens.
It is asserted on "',6 authority that
the mission to the insurgent camp Is
limited to an offer to the Insurgent
chiefs to recognize thrir present grades
in the future insular army, after the
withdrawal of the Spanish forces from
Cuba, "which will remain un3er the
protectorate of Spain with a governor
preferentially a civilian. It is said the
parliament about to assemble wiil sanc

Summary "or Whnt n CirrpHnand.-nt Says
tlie Iocunient Will Say.
London, April 11. The MadriJ corre
spondent of The Daily Mail telegraph
ing at 10 o'clock last evening says:
"During the day the outlook has bscome
much worse, and ery gloomy views are
generally entertained. A few persons,
more optimistic than the majority, trust
that In a few days' time the prevailing
tension may lie lessened. It is the gen
eral belief, however, that a rupture is
imminent. The cabinet council met at
4 o clock this afternoon. The session
lustea tnree hours, honor Sagasta, the
premier, submitted a draft of the speech
rrem the throne. Its tenor is not pre'
cisely known, though it makes an appeal
to the highest patriotism of the na
"It summarizes the International
problem and points out that Spain has
always presented an accommodating
front in everything which did not di
minish her sovereignty, though sh
only agreed to grant a cessation of
hostilities in Cuba when the pope made
his request and the powers joined iu
ccurseling it. The speech appeals to the
Sptnish people to rally around the
your.g king, save the country, and to
grant to the government everything
which may be necessary and urgent to
defend the national honor and integrity.
I am informed that although the speech
is now definitely drawn up it may still
re moelinoG, but in any case Senor
Sagasta will tomorrow morning deliver
it ti the queen regent, who will open
lariiament accompanied by the king
and the Infanta Isabel.
"The cabinet today discussed various
disoatehes relating to the Cuban ques
tion .nd the attitude of the United
States. Senor Moret, secretary for the
ct ionics, read a dispatch from General
Blanco containing unfavorable news in
regard to the attitude of the Cuban
rebels. It seems that when the Ameri
can senate commenced the discussion
of and voted in favor of the recognition
of Cuban independence the rebels a ban
doned their intention of yielding t-
j Spain in return for a broader measure
of autonomy, ar.d there is a general
popular distrust here as to any out
come of the negotiations with the rebels.

I The Madrid correspondent of The

Maine disaster report by the Spanish
commission of inquiry gives great satis

the purely accidental character of the
explosion. It asserts positively that

accidental character of the calamity.

OLD CATERER ON TERRAFIN.
When It Is Heady, the Satisfaction b la
"Eatlnc It All Tonrself."
James Prosser. a f anions colored ca
terer of this city, dead long ago, fur
nished the following formula for pre
paring and serving terrapin, which was
published in a gastrouomi journal at the
time when be was on earth :
"You can't enjoy terrapin unless tho
day is nippin. Temperature and terra
pin go hind in hand. Now, as to your
terrapin. Bless you, there is all the
difference in the world in them. The
more northerly is the terrapin fonnd the
bettor. 1 on eat a Florida terrapin you
needn't despise it, for terrapin is terra
pin everywhere but you get a Chesa
peake one or a Delaware bay one, or.
better still, a Long Island one, and there
is just the difference between f 10 a
dozen and $30. Warm water kinder
washes the delicate flavor oct of them.
Don't yon let Mr. Bcrgh know it, but
your terrapin must bo boiled alive.
Have a good big pot, with a hot fire un
der it, so that be 6hau't languish, anil
when it has got on a fnll head of steam
pop hiin in. What I am goin to give ig
a recipe for a Einglo one. If you are aw
fully rich and go in for a gross of terra
pin, just use your multiplication tablet.
Just as soon as be caves in watch' him
and try bis flippers. When they part
when you pry them with your finger
nail, bo is good. Open him nicely with
a knife. Bum of him dislocates tho
snuffbox. There ain't overmuch of it,
more's the pity. The mo?t is in tbo
jints of the legs and sido lockers, but if
you want to commit murder jiiFt you
smash bis gall, and then yonr terrapin
is gone forever. W atch closely for eggs
and handle them gingerly. Now, bav
in got him or her nil into shnpo, put
tho meat aside. Take threo fresh eggs
you must hnvo them ftwh. Bile 'em
hard and mash 'em smooth. Add to
that a tablcspoouful of sifted flour,
three tablespoonfuls of cream, salt and
peppvr (red pepptT to a terrapin is just
depravity) and two wineglasses cf sher
ry wino. Wine as costs fl. 50 a bottle
ain't a bit too good. There never was a
gotcga in all Portugal that wouldn't
think itself honored to have itself mixed
up with a terrapin. Now you want qnito
a quarter of a pound of the very best
fresh butter and put that in a porcelain
covered pan and melt it first mustn't
bo browned. When it's come to bo 'oily,
put in your terrapin, yolks of egg, wiuo
and alL Let it simmer gentlv. Bilin
up two or three times dejes the business.
What you are after is to mako it blend.
There ain't not bin that must be too point
ed in terrapin stew. It wants to bo a
qniet thing, a suave thing, just pervad
ed with a most beautiful and natural
terrapin aroma. Vou most serve it to
the iieople that cats it on n hot plate.
Imt tho n-al thing is to have it on a
cbufin dish, uml though a man onght
not to be selfish them is a kind of diviue
satisfaction in eatin it all yourself."
Postal and Traveling Accommodations of
the Old licrman City.
The post relations of nucieut Stuttgart
were unpretentious. The two maid
servants of the postmaster distributed
through tbo city the daily letters, which
they carried in the same basket with the
family marketing. Letters wero carried
out of the city by postilions. There was
a number of couriers, aud as a surety
against mistakes there hung in the iwst
office, beside the enrious mail bags, a
hngo whip, with which, when tho com
mission had been given to the courier, a
powerful blow fur tho strengthening of

high, clumsy wooden box was secured
by thick leathern straps, and iu tho
cavernous bottom were confined together
packages and passengers. Up and down
hill, over ruts und rucks, tho cumbrous
vehicle rattled on its way, tho hapless
travelers being ever on tho defensive
against the assaults of tumbling boxes
and bundles. And then tho weary slow
uoss of the way! Formerly the journey
from Stuttgart to Tubingen was mado
in 1 2 hours. Tho saiuo journey is now
