"tho tlmo was rapidly approaching when the Btanlh Government would be mado totinderetand that delay would not bo toler ated." Bummed up In a fair words, tho situa tion at Taris Is serious, although thore in no crisis In the negotiations, and unless tho Spanish Commissioners .modify tholr present itubborn roiltlon tho United States will de liver an ultimatum that wlllcausoa rupture It the Biunlards do not ncquloseo In Its demands. Matters concerning Cuba and rorto Rico and the political situation In North Carolina and South Carolina nlso camo in for a share of con sideration at tho Cabinet meeting, but It Is un dentood that the Paris matter was of grantor Importance. A despatch that camo to tho Slato Depart ment (rem Sir. Day, Chairman of tho American Commission, contained tho basin for tho con sideration by tho Cabinet of tho situation at Paris. The Spanish Commissioners liavo not jet done anything that would place on them the responsibility for a rupture, should nny occur, but since the dclhery of tho American noto expressing the intention of tho United Btates tohold the Philippines permanently, no prog ress has been mado by tho joint coin mission. A deadlock practically oxists In Tarle, mainly over tho refusal ' of tho Bpanlsh representatives to admit that any question exists as to Spain's right of so erelgnty in the Philippines Spain's einojs have been stubborn on that point, and hmo in creased tho irritation of this Government and ' Its representatives In Paris by bringing up other matters involving suggestions which tho United Staffs will not tolerate. In tho face of this position, however, tho Spaniards have allied for more time to answer tho last noto of the American Commissioners. TIiIb request. Involving aa extension of a few days only, has been cranted as a result of tho Cabinet session of to-day, but additional Instructions wcro sent to the American Commissioners directing them how to act It tho next communication from tho Spaniards did not express a willing ness to recedo from or lo modify tholr present position. The negotiations have now reached a stneo where the patience of tho United States has been exhausted. It has been Impressed on tho Brinish representatives that tho United States Intended to assume ownership and control oor the entire Philippine croup, but so far Spain's Commissioners have not shown any sign of yielding. It was determined at tho Cubinet nesting to-day that radical steps would prob ably be nocossarrio brine the Spaniards to a realization of tho earnestness of this Govern- meat.

It Is necessary toconhtdor tho peace negoti ations henceforth In their bearing upon the largor political situation in which Spain socks to moko them an active factor. Ifcls. otcourso, a matter of common knowlodgo that all o(tho Kuropenn continental powers nro opposed to a chanco In tho sovereignty of tha Philippines, and It Is equally well known Hint litiKlftnd Is willing to go to almost any length to support tho United States, It necessary, against any Kuropenn Intorfcronco with tho execution of tho American policy Tlioro Is n strong bollcf among continental diplomats that after the United States secures tho Philippines that country will oentually oxchange a largo portion ot the arohlpolago for tho British West Indies. Thnro Is no possible doubt that cortnln continental nowcrsiwould uso every Intlucnco short of war tonorttlits consummation. Tho present ottltudo of Spain Is that of un compromlslnp; tcilstance to tho American ao mnnds In tho Philippines; but if, under future pressure, Spain should riold. tho Atnorlcan Uovomment must expect her surrender-to bo nccompnnlod by somo such condition as nn American guarantoo that tho sovereignty of tho islands should revert to Spain In'caio thoy wcro rctlniiuistied by tlio United States. It may bo taken ns almost certain that Spain would not appeal lu vain for European support of such a proviso, but Bpaln won't play tho European gamo for nothing. It matters llttlo or nothing to Spain what power ovcntually secures the arohlpelaRo aftor sho loses tho Islands. Her solo aim at the prosont tlmo Is to hccuro sufllcient funds to avert bankruptcy. Sho bcllcvos that tho only way to succeed In this object is to onllst European support In resisting tho American demands, or, rather, in urging Amorlca to pay a big sum for the Islands. It this support is refused, Bpaln will havo no object In seeking to Influonce tho fato ot tho Philippines aftor thoy loavo her posses sion. Hcnco tho strong motives for Russia, Franco and Germany to lend n friendly ear to Spain's appeal: and henco, also, England Is preparing completely to meet nny possible move which, though nominally dlreotodngalnst tho United States, Is really aimed at her. The fact Is nobody knows what form the crisis will tako In what may bo conveniently described as the European situation. It may bo over Egypt or It may bo over some feature of the Far Eastorn imbroglio. It Is now clearly tho policy ot Great Britain to forco her cne mlos' hands. Most English statesmen are now convinced that it is the distinct currose of Russia and Franco and perhaps other powers to accrandizo thomselvcs politically and com mercially at tho oxpenso of Great Britain In sovoral quarters of the world. It Is likewise clear that British resistance to this policy, to bo effectual, must be mode now.and made with decisho vigor. The fashoda incident has far nlshed proof, first, that GreatrnalrTTiaTat' last determined to force tho Issue, and, second, that France and Russia are palpably unready and are desirous to Dostpcne the critical mo ment at least two years. Lord Salisbury made It very difficult for, Franco to abandon her pretensions on the Nile. His ottltudo was Intentionally provoca tive, and there Is muoh socrft disappointment In England that France did not accept tho chal lenge Tho opportunity to say to combined Europe "You shnll not rob America of the fruits of her victory as was done in the cose of Japan and China" would bo welcomed by Lord Salisbury and tho entire British nation. Buch nn opportunity and. It Is very possible. Its real ization were almost obviously In Lord Salis bury's mind when making his Guildhall speech on Wednesday. Few persons, olthor In England or on the Continent, regard that spoeoh as reassuring. Tho best Interpretation of Its moaning seems, to bo tnat certain great and far-reaching nntl--Brltlsh schemes must bo abandoned before the danger of war will disappear. The foregoing considerations, all bearing directly or Indirectly upon tho Spanish-American poaco convention, show how the quostlon Is complicated at the present moment, and how Impossible It Is to separato it from the affairs of nations as a whole. To-day's developments were most important. Tho American representatives will endeavor to bring pressuro at Monday's session to forco an Immediate reply from Spain, but thoro aro sev eral diplomatic excuses available for a few days' delay, such as the Illness of Sonor.Montoro Rlos 'day by day.

Oxford and Cambridge, as is well known, have had troubles and dis cord over the question ot women studonts In the university.

It Is only flvo days after election, and tho Bryan I to newspapers of New York city havo started out to attempt to create a disturbance In tho Republican party nnd among tho Inde pendent citizens who supported Col. Theodore Roosevolt. Govornor-olcct of Now York State, and to make trouble for his administration at Albany. The nowly elected Governor does not propose lo becomo a victim to mothodt ot this character. In tho days whcnRoswellP.FIowor was Governor It was the custom of certain newspapers to attempt to oreato troublo bo tweon Flower and Hill. When Franks. Black became Governor tho same methods wcro adopted to causo trouble between Black and Thomas 0. Piatt. Whatever tho merits of tho situation under theso two administrations, tho came won't work with Roosevelt. , Cortnln evening newspapers were making outcry yesterday over tho fact that Governor elect Roosevelt met at tho homo ot his brothor-In-law, Douglas Robinson, GOO Madison avenue, tho Hon. Seth Low nnd the Hon. Elihu Root. Col. Roosovelt has always been the personal friend ot Mr. Low nnd Mr. Root. There Is no reason under tho sun why Mr. Low nnd Mr. Root should not moot Mr. Roosevolt, especially as Mr. Low and Mr. Root did magnlllcent work for tho election of Col. Roosevelt. But Imme diately tho Bryanlte newspapers announced that Col. Roosevelt had met with n lot of Mug wumps, men who were out with kntto and re volver to destroy tho Republican organization of tho Stato. Tho facts of tho mooting between Governor elect Roosevelt and Mr. Low'apd Mr. Ropt at tho homo ot Mr. Robinson yesterday mora ine nro very simple. Tho talk was about tho future of the Republican party In the State of Now York. A numbor of yenrs ago Ellhu Root was President of the County Committee ot NoWYork. He was an ablo President and a fine executlvo officer. Beth Low has nover been a member ot the Now York Republican county organization. Immediately aftor tho defeat of Grover Cleveland In 1833 ho removed from his homo on Brooklyn Hoights to Now York city. Mr. Low reslgnod nt the time from his Republican ward organization, for tho reason that he could not support the tariff poliey ot Benjamin Harrison, who hnd just been nominated at Chicago. Hn became the candidato ot a faction for Mayor of Greater Now York last year. Mr. Low was defeated for Mayor. Nobody regretted this moro.it was said, than tha active workers of tho Republican or ganization In Greater New York. Gen. Tracy accepted the regular nomination, hoping that some compromise could be made, but no com promise was made. and tbe resultwas disaster. Things are to be different for the next two years. It was said by the friends ot Col. Roosovelt last night, for the reason that Gov. eleot Roosevolt reached n perfeot understand ing yestorday morning with his friends Seth Low and .Ellhu Root, Tho only Vay, Jt wns" pointed out, to strengthen tho .organization, created rur It Is by- law, Is to have strong men who bcllevo in the wel fare of the organization and who are not ao tuntad by' tho deslro for potty pelf, join with tho organization and thus inako It a power against Crokor domination in Greater New York and In the Bute. All of these matters Col. Roosovelt. Mr. Low and Mr. Root talked ovor yesterday morning at tho home of Douglas Robinson. At the time this talk was going on tha Bryanlte papers were announcing that Gov.-elect Roosevelt had' engagements at the Fifth Avenue Hotel with representatives of tho labor organizations which he had. refused to keep and with Senator Thomas 0. Piatt, tho Republican leader of tho State, and the Hon. Benjamin B. Odell. Jr.. Chairman ot tho Re publican State Committee. Tho fact about tho labor people is that Governor-elect Roosevelt by appointment had In vited President Gunton. Henry Welsman, nonry Whlto and J. J. Donnelly to have luncheon with him at the Fifth Avenue Hotel at 1 o'clock yesterday. Thoso gen tlemen were to talk over with him certain legislation whioh tho labor people here desire. Governor-elect Roosevelt was at tha Fifth Avenuo Hotel at fifteen minutes to one. Ho met Chairman Odell In Republican State hoadquartors and, with Mr. Odell, awaited the coming of tho labor leaders until ten minutes to two. At that time, when Col. Roosevelt had rather given un his visitors. Senator Piatt walked in. He said to Co). Roosovelt that ho and Mrs. Piatt were to go to Lakowood at 3 o'clock and that he had nothing to say to Gov.-olect Roosevelt oxcopt to offer htm the heartiest congratulations on his election. Chairman Odell said that he and several friends were going up to tho Gllsey Houso to luncheon, and why shouldn't Col. Roosevolt and Senator Piatt join him. Governor-elect Roosevelt and Chairman Odell agreed that they would like to havo a talk with Senator Piatt, and so tbe lunoheon place was changed to tho Fifth Avenue Hotel. Atthat luncheon the three gentlemen talked ovor a nu ruber of matters and Col, Roosevelt told of his Interview with Mr, Low and Mr, Root. Mr. Flatt end Mr. Odell believe that Col. Roosevelt is absolutely right In his efforts to bring about harmony In the Republican party all over tho State. All point out tho Importance ot the elec tion for President in 1000 and for Mayor ot Greater New York in 1001. Governor-eleat Roosevelt was with Benator Piatt and Chairman Odell up to tho last mo ment that Mr. and Mrs. Piatt could get the train for Lakewood. where thoy aro to spend a day or so. Several topics of Interest were discussed. The probability of a metropolitan police bill, certain changes In the Liquor Tax law, tho prospective Introduction of a pure beor bill, the naming ot the Adjutant-Gon-oral and his staff under,,Gov, Roosevelt, and other matters were dlscustod. But noth ing was decided. All left tho conference with the Idoa that all should give tholr best thoughts to dutermlno what legis lation will be for the benefit ot the people of the State, and when tho Republican and Independent campaigners are rested alter the fight,' the questions whtoh were referred to In dosultory fashion yestorday will be taken up and discussed to a conclusion, Governor-elect Roosevelt, Senator Piatt and Chairman Odoll bellevo that nothing should be dono about the selection of an Adjutant-General or the Governor's military staff until rep resentatives of the National Guard aro talked With, There will bo no mote Tllllughastlsm ptidcr Roosovelt, it was ..aid. and no more bringing ot politics Into tho National Guard. It was pointed out that certain icirliui'iiu ot tho National Guard ot the Stato have been put In a mbst unpopular light, and very unjustly so. by the misinterpretation by Adjt.-Oen, Tllllngkast ot )ils Instructi-ins from Adjt.

Gov.-olect Roosovelt announced yesterday that In nil probability his prlvnte secretary would bo District Attorney Wllllnm J. Youngs otOistcrBay. Mr. Youngs has been an Im portant Republican for a groat many years, nnd as District Attorney of QuoenB county he hns mado an envlablo record. Tho nuthorltatlvo announcomqnt Is mado that Gov.

Payn to bo Superintendent of Insuranco at Albany, Tho Scnato at Albany Is rather a tight fit, twenty-seven Republicans nnd twenty-three Democrats, but for all that Governor-elect Roosevelt and his friends bollevp that when the time comes thoy will bo powerful enough to uamo a new Superintendent of Insurance. Moreover, Gov. Roosovelt expects to bo abletoget along very comfortably at Albany thin winter with tho twenty-seven Republicans at his back. In tho event ot attcmf ted trouble somo very sturdy measures will bo Introduced. It Is not proposed to allow a nest of cheap lob byists to thwart the purposes ot tho Republi cans and their Independent allies. There was a uniform understanding on theso matters at tho Fifth Avenuo Hotel yesterday afternoon at the meetlnc between Roosovelt, Piatt, and Odell. The place of Superintendent of Publlo Works, to succeod George W. Aldrldgo, was offered to Chairman Odoll. and he declined It. It was then mado known to Chairman Odell that It he desired to bo the Republican party's candidato for United States Senator at the joint caucus ot the Legislature on Jan. 15 next ho would have tho support ot tho friends of thoso who can bring about such a nomina tion.

London, Nov. 12. The American colony In London is dlcusted over the assurance of a oer taln Col. George Gourand, who has been using the American Embassy as the agent of his own sclt-adverttsement. On tho day that the Sirdar arrived at Dover Gourand telephoned to Lieut-Col. Bates, military attaoh6 of the Em bassy, asking If ho and Ltout. Colwell. the naval attachtf, would like to go to Doior to meet the Sirdar. If so, Gourand would telegraph to his friend, the Mayor ot Dover, asking for invi tations. LIeut.-Col. Bates and Lieut Colwell accepted and soon received telegraphlo invitations from the Mayor ot Dover. It was subsequently learned that Gourand did not know the Mayor, but on the strength of LIeut.-Col. Bates say ing he would be pleased to go, Gourand tele graphed lo the Mayor requesting invitations In the namo of tho Embassy tor Bates and Col well, who. with Gourand, went to Dover in a special carrlaco, which, with froe transporta tion, Gourand secured by means ot represen tations similar to those mado to the Mayor. Bates all tho whllo thinking thoy were going in their private capacity, and having no Idea that Gourand was posing with thorn as official representatives. When the Mayor met them at Dover tho true position began to dawn upon Bates, and so when Gen. Butler, commanding the local forces, welcomed them, he only Introduced Colwell. But Gourand, equal to tho occasion. Intro duced himself. Subsequently, as the etoamer neared the wharf, Gen. llutl-r Invited the offi cers to go aboard and greet tho Sirdar. Under the clroumstances LIeut.-Col. Bates replied that doubtless many Englishmen wore desir ous to greet tholr fellow countryman, and so ho and his colleague would take a more fitting opportunity. Gourand, however, went aboard, elbowed his way to the Sirdar, and greeted him effusively lu behalf of America. Later the banquet took place. Gourand, still posing as an official representative, had arranged that ho should reply to the toast to "The American Forces," proposed by Mr. Wluzfleld. the new Under Secretary for War. LIeut.-Col, Bates, learning of this. Immediate ly explained matters, and tho Mayor had the ltom eliminated from the programme. Afterward, up to their return to London, the American officers ignored Gouiand as far as possible and thon told him that tholr ac quaintance must ond. Besides Imposing himself upon the Sirdar, the Muyor of Dover und the American Em bassy, Gourand victimized tho Lord Mayor of London In a similar fashion, obtaining on In vitation to the Guildhall banquet, and sent a gushing, Inane letter to tho London papers, which the Times prints. The letter Is ad- dressed to Lord Kitchener, congratulating him oa behalf of the American hemisphere, and especially in behalf of the veterans of 18tll-03, with whom ho 'laontlfles himself.

London. Nov, 12. There Is no doubt now that tha Interpretation placed in England upon Lord Salisbury's sneeoh Is such that tho outlook cannot bo said to be vory peaceful. It Is unlvorsally considered that tho Premier manifested a strong realization ot tho serious dangors that are qlotte at hand. Tho situa tion Is now considered lo stnnd thus: England refuses to abate ono jot of her claims In Egypt.and although tho Government to tho disappointment of mnny, does not con sider the moment rlio for tho declaration of a protectorate. It has good reason to fear that France's temper may forco such a step, which would undoubtedly bring matters to an Issue, oven if tho Bahrbl 0 nazal matter can be ami cably settled, which scorns far from aertnln. There must be a most critical moment next year when tho functions of tho mixed tribunals in Egypt will cease by ofllux of time. England will then ask the powers Interested to acquiesce In the abolition of tho tribunals, and Franco and Russia, unloss agreatchango cornea over them, will certainly give an em phatic refusal, England will then either pio nounce the tribunals nt an end or declare a protectorate, either ot which courses would bo sufllolont to mako the present naval prepara tions most necessary. Another matter Is bocinnlng to attract at tention, which Is best doscrlbed In tho words of Mr. T. P. O'Connor, whoso views aro always worthy Of consideration: "Tho most rcmarkablo thing In Lord Salis bury's speech," ho says"ls tho avoldanco of all reference- to tho egrcoruont with Germany There Is no room to doubt that an agreement oxlsts, but Its terms have been carefully kopt from the world, although somo semi-official Gorman journals report that tbe acquisition of Dolagoa Bay by Groat Britain Is ono ot its conditions, Germany receiving something In return. "It is noteworthy with what care Lord Sails bur avoided tho whole subject. In what sense must his reticence be understood? If an ncrcoment was signed, presumably it must still stand, and therefore It we uro deter mined to support tho United States' domand for the Philippines, It seems to follow that the conditions ot tho acroomnnt with Germany must be carried out. On the other hand, it was generally sunposod that Germany was as llttlo pleased with tho policy of trie United States In the Philippines as Russia and Franco. Has Germany been brought to look at tho Fhlllpplno question In a new light or is Ger many pursuing one polloy as regards the Phil ippines and another with regard to Africa? Probably It may prove that the real cause of tho naval preparations refer more to some ot tha torms of tho Anglo-Gorman agreement than to tho Philippines and China." There Is n lively interest, and even anxiety, now to hear what Mr. Chamberlain wW havo to say at Manchester on Tuesday.. It Is thought that he will be mora likely' to be the .mouthpiece of the Cabinet than tho Premier 1( there Is anything unpleasant to say to France or any other country, whllo even if uncom missioned to speak plainly, he will as likely as not do bo on his own Initiative. If It suits him. The jingo Globe, In an article headed "Salis bury's Enigma." says that an event of the first Importance is the fact that tho United States has deliberately set asido tho traditions of Washington and Monroe, and. armed cap-a-pie, stepped Into the International arena with a de termination to retain the Philippines. This, tho Globe says, constitutes tho formal an nouncement to the world of tho begin ning of a now era In the history of the Unltod Stntes. The Globe is unable to see why Lord Salisbury should havo re frained from declaring categorically his bollcf In the essontlal unity of British and American intorests. as by common language and laws theso countries have been unltod for a long tlmo. Alliances, the paper con tinues, depond upon an Identity of Intorests which hero exists. The American press com ments upon Lord Salisbury's speech suffi ciently Indicate that the Premier was not mis taken In his outspoken avowal of essential unity. "The real enigma Is whether a European war Is likely to arise out of the Philippine difficulty. The support of Great Britain Is absolutely essential to tho United States, and fear ot this support Is causing crest uneasiness among tho powers." Sir Edward Groy, M. P., addressing a meet lnc at Asplngton, Northumberland, on the Fashoda question to-day, said: "Whllo ono very acuto point has boon settled by France's decision to withdraw from Fashoda, yet the sky Is not cleared. We are obliged to recognize that though France withdrew thoro remains In Paris a fooling ot Irritation and soreness. While the Impression remains that we have treated them harshly, we know well that relations cannot bo placed perma nently on a bettor footing." Mr. n. H. Asqulth. formerly Homo Secretary, speaking before tho Liberal Club at Padlsham to-day, said that while dollcato questions still remained to bo settled, ho be hoved It would bo found possible through tha resources of Htatesmanshlp to dovlso ar rangements which, without wounding the honor of either powor, might reconcllo the In terests of both, Roferrlng to the relations between England and tho United States. Mr. Asqulth snld It was noteworthy that a closer oonsolous approxi mation ot tho two peoples should como at tho moment when the United Btates was stepping outside of her old boundaries and becoming a colonizing and ImporUI power. It soemod evident, ho said, that under stress no people could resist the United States, which wns destined to becomo one of the great powjrs lu tho Far Eafit. Ilore, ho said, was a now pastor of the utmost Impor tance In tho struggle which had already begun respecting tho markets ot China. England desired the Chinese railroads and ports to be open. If tho United States came Into possession of Aslatlo territory there was no doubt that she would deal In the sumo spirit knowing that the co-operation ot tho two English-speaking powers must virtually affect, so far as England lsconcorncd, for the better, the whole future development ot the Far East KXQLAXD AXD ITALY.
