Apnl i. - The preaident and the members of hi cnlnm-t now re gard a conflict with Siu as aim. Ml in evitable. In hu meaaage to congress, which in all probability will be sent Monddr, it I un.lersto.al that the president will re view at some length the record. aa It tanda between thla government and Spain, but will not tnaiat npon further time 111 which to continue negotiation looking to a peaceful solution uf the Cuban problem. The cabinet meeting yesterday waa niuiueationably th most Important bebt in many year It rv ceu.il Spain' answer to the ultimatum of thia government and finding it un satisfactory, nracticslly derulett upon a policy which, at this hour, a-m certainly to involve hiwtil itlea. The whole ssjsssj will Is- laid be fore congress and tlie queation 1 now under earnest cousuleration aa to what hall la- the particular form of our pol icy in bringing to an end the horrors in Cuba and aecunng the independence of the island. Proposition ranging from a simple recognition to war have been urged at the capitul, but there la hardly a doubt that the majority of cmgrv await tbe executive lead before taki.-K action and 1 disuoM-d to adopt Mr Mc Kinley suggestion on tins point. It ia thought any of the rvsohititNis except pia-.ibly aim pi. recngmtion ot inilepend ence would lead to war Tliere ia, of cfmru', all ort of ru mors in rin-ulatiou. including report of mediation tiy some Kun;-an power, but no anggeation ha come to this gov ernment. The session of the cabinet lasted from 5 to o'clock yesterday afternoon The Snlah minister was at the state de partment at . o'clock. Although there was the strictest reserve a to what oc curred, it caii be stated positively that the United Slate submitted no further proposition, nor did the Spanish minis ter offer anything which changed the situation of aflairs Both idr. regard the Issue as made op. with no likWlhood of further m-g. .flat!"!!. . r ! the time at which tlie president will submit tbe caw- to congress. The United State has preentl it iK mind and Spain baa given her answ.-r Thus the case stands While this brings a halt to the active negotiation wln.-h have been in progress fur the past few day, It doe not mean that the diplomatic re lations between the two countries are terminated, for such a step is the last preliminary state of war. United State Minuter Wisslf.mt remains st bis post In Msdrid. and ia said tola- cntirvly safe from harm The Spanish minister. Polo y Bernabr, also r mams at hi post at Washington Tbe critical condition of affair dur ing recent .lavs haa led him and his staff to consider what di.ssition of their effect would la made in case their pis-tpouctucut should heroine untenable. From the Spanish standpoint there 1 the same disposition as that shown by the United Mate, hvtv, to regard the fca in- a made up The anawcr of Spain is liaikcd upon as tbe limit .if .-.it 11 which Madrid will grant If then is to be another moTe the Spanish govern ment haiks to the United States to make It. At least thia is the situation as it presents itself to those la-st informed in Washington. Of coarse it cannot be foretold what Madnd will do In the tres, of ctn-uiii-tancea within the next two ilar. But those boat able to judge do not cxpsvt any further move from Madnd. aa they say Spain has reached the limits of her cncKvsclon. NIPPED IN THE BUD. MotUaaa Aalhorlilr.
