GROVER'S LAST SAY. President's Message Is. Complete With One Exception. ,., WASHINGTON, Dec. 1 As there will be but one more regular cabinet meeting before the assembling of con gress all members were present at to day's meeting to discuss those portions of the forthcoming message of the president that relates to the business of their respective departments. The message is practically complete except as relates to the Cuban ques tion.
