MADttin, March S. Copyright, 1SX by the Associated 1'resa. It ono may Judge by the things that have been said and some of the things that have been done tho (ipanUh people are enthusiastically de termined to go to war forthwith with the United States and t speedily avenge the Insult which It Is funded has been offered to the pride of ipaln by tho United States senate. rViroe of tho organs of publio opinion declare that the bankruptcy of the Hpnnlah government would not pre vent the Spanish people from taking up the quarrel on their own account and fit ting ont expeditions and maintaining themselves at their own expense while combating tbe "Insolence of the assertions of tbe United States." There seems to have been a notable In crease of excitement and patriotic ardor among the people since haturday, when the news of tue senate's action was first madeknewn. ruch a stress of feeling as now exists. If It continue for any length of time, cannot but afford eerious menace to tbe peaceful relations of the two countries. The fpanlaa authorities seem to have felt apprehensions of the form tlie twoolo's wrath might take, and provided special safeguards for tbe sop-pn-Mioa of disorders, and especially for the protertlon of any o (Tidal represent ative of the United Btates government. The preparations of tbe government are not all uf a neaeef ul character, however. It is significant that the minister of marine, Admiral Jose Maria Beranger, baa Issued orders for the training squad' ro to br pretvtrrd to aalL It la regarded as probable that thle squadron will pn . cred shortly to Cube. It baa also been ordered that all other warships available be forthwith armed and equipped and pat Into eondldtlon for active service, la ad dittos) to this about fifty merchant steam- wrw avauaoie tor the government service will be brovtded with naval armament. For tbe military braacb of tbe service a rrvab expedition of aULOUO lnfau-r low cavalry wlil be equipped a4 put on war footing and will be Kent In readi ness to leave at the shortest notion. The Imparcial aaya on the crisis: 'If things reach the goal which Americans desire tbe whole of Spain will rite against the United States. Neither la tbe Medi terranean, whose entrance we command, nor is the Atlantis will an American merchantman be safe, for we shall organ ise prlvatcera n a great scale. . We con quered Napoleon by guerrilla warfare, and we shall employ a system of privateers to overcome a trading nation. Americans are wrong to Judge Spain by her budget. There are things which are superior to revenue. Home merchant captains have offered already to arm their steamers as privateers. A captain of Barcelona asks for letters of marque, offering to equip and maintain the fastest steamer at his own cost." In view of the excited state of the' pub lic mind the United States legation In tills city has been placed under the special erreillanoo of the police. The student class seems to form a large proportion of the Inflammatory element which Is mak ing so much noise. The students of this city are busily, at work to organize a great demonstration of protest against the action of tbe United States. At Valencia the studonte of the university paraded the srrccta and then gathered before the United States consulate shouting: "Death to Uncle Sam." "Viva Spain," and "Long live the army." If Hon. Hannis Taylor, the United Elates minister of Spain, had gone to tho opera Saturday evening, he would cer tainly have had a very unpleasant time. Evidently some persons thought ho had done so, for they were waiting outside the opsra house after the porformanca was over and bad organized a host ilo demonstration with whlohi to greet Mr. Taylor. But whether he considered It unwlso to In flame the public mind by an appearance or for somo other reason tho United States minister did not attend tho onera. The government has Issued an order prohibiting the various demonstrations which have been planned by students. This order applies as well to all similar demonstrations, and is taken to mean that tho government docs not at all ap provo of tho course tho popular ardor has taken.' It Is understood that the Spanish minister In Washington, Senor Dupuy de Lome, bos horn iustrujted to make diplo matic representations to the United States government regarding the action of the l nltod States senate. WASHIXUTO IleABe, OF THE RIOT. Mo Sarpries Felt That the Spaniards Are Waxing Very Wroth. Wamhxgtox. Much S. Intense Inter est contorod here last night In the dis patches showing the demonstrative feel Ing existing In Spain against the Ameri cans regarding the Cuban question and the statement that tbo government Is In creasing its naval force. No scrpriso was expressed at tho demonstrations which aeve occurred : In foot such wbcru ex pected. The speeches in the senate, ex tracts of which have no doubt tksen pub! lished In the Spanish iupuH"a)saiu had their Influence on the niassoe of the people. Tho whole matter Is regarded here simply as that of mob violence, for which tbe Spanish government has not in any manner bora responsible. So far as could bo learned no oDlclal news had beon re ceived hero by tho government. Steps un doubtedly will be taken very promptly to day to ascertain tbe situation through state department channels, if Minister Tsylor at Madrid or Consul Bo wen at Barcelona do not anticipate tho official) and meko a report. The Spanish minis ter, Senor do Lome, heard of tho happen ings In Spain through tbe press, and he was besieged by tbe reporters lor an ex pression of opinion. He diplomatically declined, however, to say anything for publication pending news from hi government. The viola tion of tho consulate of tbe United States at Barcelona makes a disavowal necessary by Spain and tbo United States will in quire of the Spanish government what amends will bo made. Tho case finds an analogous one In an evont which occurred In this country sixty years ago when a mob of persons In cw Orleans assaulted the Spanish consalate at a time whun tho Florida question waa uppermost in tbe pnblio mind. It was a cats of mob vio lence and tbe government of tbe United States oompensatea to Spain for tho damage done. Chairman Hitt, of tbe hoiiso committee on foreign affairs. Is confident that the at- tltudo of our own government will bo one of great caution at this Juncture, and It is not probablo .that any act or expression that may emanate from it will add to the difficulty of a peaceable and honorable settlement of the trouble. The danger to be apprcnonded In his mind Is solely In some intemperate utterances in congress that may add to tho excitement and pro cipltate a collision unnecessarily. STATE DEPARTMENT INFORMATION. Doeaat JaatUy, Is Is aaid, the Proposed Actteei w Coagveea. The administration's position is a mat ter of speculation, but is as follows as near as can bo ascertained : The informa tion In the hands of tbe stale department Is front United ptates consular officers. Tbe general tendency of these reports, it is learned. Is to establish the fact that the Insurgent oanse Is not nearly as strong as has been supposed In congress, and that as conditions now exist the administra tion would not be warranted in extending recognition to what tt must regard as a guerilla movement. Besides, the admin istration U of tbe opinion,' based on the facts rcvealod by tbe consular reports, that If left to their own devices tho insur gents cannot prevail against tbe Spanish forces In Cub. Believing that congress has been mis led aa to the facta and carried away by enthusiasm to false conclusions the execu tive authorities mobably will take steps to lay before tbe Influential members of tbe administration party the tacts upon which It bases its opinion that tbe United States should not take active steps In the Cuban-Spanish conflict at this time. Senator Lodge, speaking of the attack on the consulates, said to an Associated Press representative: The news from Spain In your dispatches is grave, for It shows that the Spanish people and tbe Spanish editors, utterly foil to comprehend the situation here. They forget that they recognised the belligerency of the Confed eracy within thrco months after Sumter, while we allow tea years to pass in the last Cuban wnr and ooe year in this be fore moving. We have shown a long for- bearanceL wjuca oer lauea so show us. "I cannot believe that the Spanish min ister has been instructed to protest against the action and speeches of the senate. Such a step Is Inconceivable. As Mr. Webster aaid in the famous Huls mann letter It would be an interference with our domestic affairs which no inde pendent state could admit for a moment. I trust and believe that the Spanish gov ernment understands their situation and ours better that these Spanish newspa pers and popular meetings appear to, and I have no doubt they da" DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE.
