THE TIMES, WASHINGTON, SATDliiJiV. FEBRUARY 12, 1898.
t than thfe t)ther members of the Cabinet expected to find him. "Without any circumlocution, the President brought up the Dupuy de Lome incident. He briefly stated the facts as they had been represented to him by Judge Day and suggested that until a lull report from Minister "Wood ford was received that the subject be laid upon the table. After some little discussion the proposition met -with approval.-but not until the Cabinet was given to understand that the President expected to receive a proper disavowal bv the Spanish government of the sen timents expressed by Dupuy de Lome in his obnoxious Canalejas letter. It was agreed that suflicient time should be given Spain to make known her disap proval. If it is not received before the Cabinet meets next Tuesday, it is said on high, authority the recall of Gen. Woodford will be cabled and friendly diplomatic relations with Spain will be brought to end. The Cabinet will, undoubtedly, at its next meeting, discuss the Cuban situa tion from the standpoint taken by Dupuy de Lome, and also the proposed commercial treaty for "effect," as the minister put it. v It was plalnlv evident yesterday that the President had not the slightest doubt but that Spain would during the day make a satisfactory amende for the conduce of her diplomatic representa tive. It is probable that if it had been known that tjie. message from Madrid would not come, Minister Woodford would have been cabled to insist on an immediate disavowal by the Spanish government. Judge Day leceived a cablcyidispatch from Consul General Lee at Havana lat night, which stated that Capt. Sifirsbee.- of the Maine, had attended a banquet-given by Gen. Blanco, and that the naval vessel Gushing had arrived at Havana. FEELING IN THIS COUNTRY. MoreTlmn a Persouul Affront to the. 1 resident Seen in the Letter. Now that the first excitement attend ing the publicity given the De Lome letter has passed away, public men and statesmen are beginning to consider it in the light of sober second thought and calm judgment and reason. They see more in that letter than the personal affront to the President of the United States. The letter is a remarkublj frank and candid admission of the fact long suspected in this country that Spain was dealing with the Cnited States after the fashion peculiar to the politics and diplomacy of that govern ment. De Lome admits in this letter that the government of Spain Avas pur suing a policy of duplicity: that there was nothing at all in their pretended desire for reciprocity arrangements be tween Spain and the United States, and that the whole thing was a scheme and a device intended only to consume time and to give Spain a way to pre pare for the struggle, which she be lieved was inevitable. Thi is by far the most serious part of the whole letter. It goes beyond the I-eioiu.l expression of the minister fiom Spain, because it is a declaration oneerning the policy of his govern ment, and that part of his letter must either be disavowed by Spain or that government must admit That it was a party to De Lome's duplicity. The mere acceptance of the resignation of th Spanish minister, statesmen say, will not be sufficient for this Go em inent. If Spajn continues to remain silent she admits that De Lome told the truth when he said in his letter he had made a dupe of the State Depart ment and had wheedled it into consid ering the .subject of reciprocity between the two governments. There is a wide difference between the open-handed and trank manner in which diplomat ic affairs are handled by Americans and the underhand and sneaking meth ods of the diplomatic school from v. hich De Lome seems to hae graduated. When, Uierefiue. the Spanish minister represented to the American Govern ment that Spain teally desired to con sider the subject of reciprocity, with a lew to bringing the two governments nearer together and mutually benctit ing the commerce of the two nations, the United Slates accepted this proffer in the belief that it was honestly ex pressed, and that Spain was seeking the new relations which reciprocity would bring about. It should be remembered that just about the time the Spanish minister began to suggest a discussion of the subject of reciprocity the Administra tion was seriously considering the ad- isability of taking active measures to put a stop to some of the cruelties that were being practiced by Spain in Cuba. Every movement made by Spai vas carefully watched and she was i ven full credit for every step taken that looked to the amelioration of the dis tressing conditions in that island. The barbarities practiced upon the Cubans, upon innocent men and women, and the cruelties and indignities suffered by the concentrados had almost, it ib asset ted, aroused President McKinley to the point of action. Spanish Trickery. Then it was in order to gain time to make it appear that Spain was really seeking to do something honorable that the hypocritical suggestion for reci procity came from the fellow who is about to shake the dust of the United States from his feet and return to his ineyards in Spain, where he can pur sue his propea- avocation away from the society of decent men. Within the last twenty-four hours many public men of inlluence at the White House have vis ited the President and urged bim to re fuse to ignore that part of De Lome's loiter which admits hypocrisy and du plicity and the connivance of the Spanish minister in the dirty work of De Lome. The President has Veen urg ed repeatedly to insist that Spain be re quired to respond to a demand for an explanation of this part of the letter. Inasmuch as it has been shown that reciprocity was used by the Spaniards simply as a cloak under which they Mre pursuing war preparations, the J resident has been most persistently urged to withdraw his note offering friendly intervention to bring the war in Cuba to a close, and to give that government notice that unless in thirty days the war is ended and peace has hen established the United States will intervene, declare peace, and maintain it with whatever force may be neces- There has been a great deal of talk along this line at the Capitol. Senators and Kepresentatives who have a warm spot in their hearts for Cuban patriots are hoping that this policy will be pur sued, for they believe the time has come for this Government to act re gardless of what Spain mav do, and Death FROM- Nerves District Health Report, Feb. 3, i898.
