"Spain's policy since the cultuinntlon ot the present crisis has been apocullar one," said a member of the diplomatic corps to lue. "It appears that tbe government at Madrid has been talking valiantly and at the same time proceeding in tLo most cau tious manner possible. We have during tbe last ten days or two weeks hoard of many speeches made by Sagasta and other Spanish leaders, all full of vigor and vim, all breathing vengeance, upon the Yan kees, all telling what great things Spain is going to do just as soon as she starts out. At the same time we get through Spanish avenues more or lnes information as to tbe activity of tho Spanish naval preparations, ad to tho assembling of ships, as to th 3 pluns that are being laid for ag gressive action. "But it has struck tho most of us who are mere lookers on Jn Vienna, so to speak, that Spuin's performances are, eofar,outof proportion to her promises. She has done nothing nt all. Her fleets have not as yet appeared on this side of tho ocean, and there Is no telling when they will appear. The United States has surrounded Cuba with warships. Havana is suffering a blockade. Cuba Is threatened with early conquost. Still Spain does not move with the energy and vigor which the speeches of her load ing men would load us to expect. There is no other nation in Europe, certainly no first class power, tbat would have adopted these tactics. If the government which I represent, for instance, were to be threat ened as Spain has been threatened by your people, and war bad been declared upon us, we should ere this have bad all our fleets In motion. Not a moment's time would have been lo6t There would have been no doubt as to our Intention to fight, and to fight desperately. Playlns; a Deep Gam. "Spain's peculiar policy has led many of us to believe that at Madrid there are still hopes of averting a sorlous war," conclud ed this diplomat. "It may be Spain's plan to stand on tho defensive for awhile, to see whether or not the United States will de velop a policy of vigorous action. Spain may hope that If she moves slowly there may be a mediation of the powers which will give her a chance to drop out of Cuba In dignity without being forced to engage In a ruinous war. This sort of talk Is beard a great deal In diplomatic circles, but we aro only surmising. We have no positive information upon which to base our impressions. Yet it is true tbat the most of us beliove Spain Is playing some doep game by which she hopes to avert se vere punishment at the hands of tho Unit ed States." Whether tha war with Spain shall be a short una or a lonff one. it ia not vtt hurt. The meeting of the council which was J jng trade very much.

"Ia this bccauo they aro nfrtiid tho war is going to bring on a panic and thus de stroy the ability of country customers to pay their bills?" I asked. "Mot ut all," was the response. "It la truo many wholesale houses are calling in their salesmen, but tho reason is a wholly different one. They do not like to 6ell goods at current prices. They anticipate that thero may bo an advance in values in most lines, and they do not want to put their goods out at tho lower level. There Is not tho slightest fear in husiness circles of any panic or even of a money strin gency as a result of tho war with Spain. Business men aro feeling very easy. Of course there may bo n littlo check in some lines. Certain enterprises will bo held up, and largo building operations which were In contemplation may halt till the sky clears a little, but even this slight effect is expected to be merely temporary. The war is nob going to retard our prosperity appreciably." American News Gatherers. In one line of trade prices are rising rap idly. Havana olgars will soon be worth almost their weight in gold. Imported goods are becoming more and more scarce, and even Key West igara made of import ed Cnban tobaooo will soon be difficult to obtain. I was in a club the other day, and when the keeper of the cigar stand re marked tbat they were now selling the last consignment of Imported cigars they expocted to get a dozen men, bearing the goislp, stepped up and bought all the way from ono to half a dozen boxes each and had them put away for their private uso. If the war over Cuba continues long, thousands of Amerioans who have been smoking Havana cigars will find it neces sary to take to pipes or Mexican olgars, the only satisfactory substitutes for genu ine Cuban grown smokers. American newspapers are already giv ing tho world an object lesson in what real news gathering enterprise is. Nothing like the completeness and vividness of tho dispatches now appearing in our papers from all the points of Interest was ever soen in the world before. At the time of the civil war in this country the art of news gathering bad not been fairly de veloped. This is the first real test the American press has ever had of its capa city for handling a war, and right royally is it acquitting Itself. English papers are famous for their war news when England Is engaged in hostilities, but the English papers of the first rank have never even approached what the average American paper Is doing today. If a London paper sends three or four correspondents to the front and guts from them nn average of two or thtuo columns of cablegrams per day, It thinki it is doing a great plooe of work. Our big American papers send 80 or 40 men to the fluid, and the spaco they fill with timely, well written matter Is measurcnl by pages, not columns. As evldencoof tho enterprise and lavish ness of certain great American papers I may mention that not long ago one New York journal had as many as SO writers, artists and special men in Washington. I am told that another New York paper Is quested to attend. 1898 MODELS NARROW TPCAD SEND OUR FOR CATAIoGlic OurCrani Manger Does It VAut?
