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
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.
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
