vat the receipt of the Ions expected ca
1 blegram from United States Minister I
, Woodford, at Madrid, transmitting the j
, answer of the Spanish government to I
* his representations In the Interest of I
peace In Cuba.
The message had to bo translated
. from the cipher back again into good
- English, and It was half past 3 o'clock
J before tho first fair copy of the mes*
sage was turned out. It was not so
' long; in fact, there were a little less
than 1,000 words In the message, for Mr.
! Woodford, Instead of cabling the whole
I of tho Spanish answer to his note, con*
tented himself with reducing the matter
to a brief outline. The first copy
* was taken at oncu to the President, not
bolng entrusted to a messenger, but be1
lng delivered by Chief Clerk Michaels
* In person at the White House.
Mr. Porter said that under no circumstances
would the correspondence bo
made publlo before consideration of the
cabinet
From unofficial information that has
B reached certain administration officials
in advance of this message of Mr.
& Woodford's as to the nature of the SpanI
ish reply, It Js evident that In neither
language nor subject matter is the com!
munlcatlon likely to be taken as offen*
sive by our government. It may be, It
3 Ih true, regarded iih inefficient to meet
, the lisue presented by Mr. Woodford In
his note, but officials of the state de*
partment say that In view of what has
already been accomplished by the new
t Spanish cabinet In reforming abuses In
r? Cuba, in removing Weyler and In pro*
Jecting what appears to bo a liberal
? measure of autonomy, our government
f will certainly rest ut least until Cons
gross assembles, and afford tho new
^ Spanish government a reasonable time
? to carry out Its plans.

PURE IRON

NEW YORK, Oct. 27.?The Electrical
? Engineer will publish to-morrow, tho
- first authoritative account of Thomas
- A. Edison's success in recovering by !
- olectrlcal means the iron contained In
Jj low grade ore. The Inventor's oxperl-1
i rnenta have been carried on during the 1
s past elx years at the old Ogden Iron I
J mines, a few miles from Dover, N. J.,
where ho has built up n plant covering I
several acres of ground and whloh aftor
many experiments Is now capable
'x of producing dally from 1,000 to 1,600
. tons of almost chemically pure iron.
The ore contains on the averago;
e about 26 per cent of Iron and resembles
In appcflinncf a very poor quality of
c Kruy rocK. Mr. Edison states that 1
there are 200,000 tons of this ore on tho
land immediately surrounding his j
Dlant from which can be produced 50.0w
ioua of ore. JIls process. In
brief, consists of blasting the ore from
" tho mountain sides and then by mean*
r of steam shovels and cars conveying it i
s to massive crushers, where It is broken
b up and passed on to other mills, where
- It Is pulverised. Tho powdor Is then I
allowed to fall In close proximity to
electro magnets, which deflects the Iron j
to one side and tho non-metallic mat- I
ter falls to tho other sldo by pravlty.

It Is resolved Into this metalllo form

and decided last night that (he life of
her royal highness could not be sustained
without another operation. This
