TH E DELAY In Agreeing to Terms the Dnitei IS WELL UNDERSTOO Recounted for by Reasons of Spanis Not Countenance an Unresisting Display of a Purpose to Impror Farther Modifications, and the And it is Therefore Expected tl To-day. WASHINGTON, August 4.?There I tv46 an expectation at the state depart- 1 mcnt that perhaps towards the close of the afternoon some word might be re- t ceived from Spain through the Frenoh v Ambassador in reply to the President's * deliverance yesterday upon the subject J of peace conditions. This expectation a was based upon the f?ct that the terms h themselves had not been modified In any r essential point, so that there was little J occasion for prolonged discussion by the b Spanish cabinet, which was presumed Co have thoroughly considered this mat- c ter before rendering the first reply. r However, It was perceived from the s news dispatches that the Madrid cabl- 0 net meeting had been Inconclusive, so j It was then presumed that mrthlng defl- y nlte could be expected before to-morrow T noon at the earliest. There Is a confl- a dent belief among administration official* that the Spanish government will accept the terms laid down -by the Pres**? ? i.w.? .lauArfnjn jaeni, ?nu i??ui i?.? uci?, -- " ?? _ in recognising the inevitable Id to toe accounted for by reasons of Spanish Internal politics, which would not countenance an unresisting submission without at least a display of a purpose to Improve the terms. This, however, can- d not be accomplished, and the French h ambassador, who is well aware of that fact, unquestionably has so Informed n the Spanish government, though that S government has preserved its reeord in ttl good form to meet the criticism of Its tl political opponents toy submitting the . counter-proposition presented yesterday by M. Cambnn to the President. Will not Haggle Ovrr the Mntlw. c He undoubtedly reached that convlc- j tlon at the second Interview when the President in going over with him the u terms he proposed as a basis tor peace J] had impressed strongly upon him the V determination of our government not to indulge in haggling for advantage; not ? to be equipped with two sets of terms, J maximum and minimum conditions, but r to lay down at once the prop<i*ltlons that the United/States deemed to be ? fair and just as a basis for peace, and having done so, to adhere to them firm* t> lv ao tar as nil matters of principle c were concerned But the French ambaaeador felt that it was his duty, regardless of hie personal convictions, to lay,the plea of the < Spanish government before the President. and that la what yesterday's meeting amounted to. Now, with the Spanish government assured that no further modifications can be expected, there is nothing remaining but on acceptance of the terms outright or a rejection without further debate, which is not expected. L'nnrcPMarjr Gnnranlfr. Something has been said about an effort on the part of the Spanish government to secure some guarantee from the United States that the lives and property of Spanish citizens In conaucrcd territory shall be cared for. The Idea of the administration is that no such pledge or guarantee Is necessary. It must be remembered that when the treaty of peace Is signed tho citizens of Spain, now enemies, will fall In the neutral category. Meanwhile preparations for the Wade \ expedition go on steadily, a number of general officers being to-day ordered to muacn memeeiveu mercto, amnag ?rcm t General Randall, who wm assigned only i yesterday to command the new military J camp at Montauk Point. Navy department officials also Inalst < Chat no change has been made In the ] orders to the Watson squadron.
