Madrid, Aug. 20. El Liberal pub-
llsben remarks made by Sanor Sagas la
on tho diplomatic and political situa
tion, quoting tho premier as follows:
From n legal point of view, Uie pres.
cnt stnto of things Is neither penco or
war, but merely a suspcnsluu ot hostil
ities. An nrmlsUco would havo allow
ed us to dispel better the obscurity ot
the situation, but tho United Stncs (In
clined to agree to our making a step
further In advance.
Tha questions to bo solved are nu
merous anil complex. Wlml we hure
done first Is to lay down certain basea
on which ench minister ;nny make any
observation which study uf the sub
ject suggests. These will rontlnuo to
be treated In dally cabinet councils, It
being hold that tho bases lu quostlou
are Im fundamental Instructions for
the guidance ot the various commis
sions In the forthcoming negotiations,
to bo supplemented nnTl fcctlllod sub
sequently by telegraph.
In Culm, besides evacuation, there
are ninny other problems. Spain may
abandon her sovereignty over tho
arontor Antilles,, but thero will remuln
the question of edifices nnd nil othor
propei ties. There are lawsuits before
the tribunals affecting the Inter
ests of the Spaniards. Whore und
when will these bo ildded? In Ha
vana, whore n large number of crim
inals have been condemned by the
Spanish tilbunnls, whnt Is to be donu
with thorn? Then there nrn other
questions for which we havo to fix u
basis of discussion und agreement re
garding the Philippines, llesldos theso
ami othor problems of greater Import-
mice, there Is n preliminary question tti
bo discussed.
According to International law, n sus
pension of hostilities bus been sinned
und tho sin render of Manila ought to
havo no legal cilUiiey, How will that
prlnclplo be understood by tho United
States? This cnusos us much anxiety
ami wo give It great attention, but wo
mo still awaiting tho Information de
manded from (len. Jnuduncu, which
has not yet reached us on account of
the dlflloultliM of communication bo
hi eon Manila nnd Hong Kong.
Thcso remarks have nil tho appear-
knee ot being authentic, as thny urn In
accord with Information from other
sources mid In harmony with Suior
Sagnsta's usual stylo.
The public Is still anxious for nn
explanation of Gov. (len. Aiigustl's
mysterious dopurturo from Manila,
but Its curiosity Is not likely to bo
