ft CRISIS WITH SPAIN,
President and Cabinet Are in
AT A SUNDAY . DINNER,
Spain Asks Our Government
to Disavow ""
An American Navy Being Massed
and Recruit Bill Passed.
"Washington, Mar. 2. The Span
ish American situation, growing out
of the reports of riots at Barcelona
and other cities in Spain, was re
garded so seriously by the president,
that a special mcetcng of the cabinet
was held last night, though the call
was issued under the guise of a din
ner by Secretary Olney. Secretary
Olncy read a letter from the Spanish
minister Senor Dc Lome enclosing a
cable messago received from his gov
ernment directing tho Spanish minis
ter to Inform tho United States gov
ernment that Spain was exerting all
her power to amply protect tho Uni
ted States legation and consuls and
he could give nssuranco they would bo
protected from any harm. Also
Americans visiting and residing In
Spain would bo safe from attacks of
mobs and other riotous assemblies.
Another communication created pro
found surprise. It was a messago
from tho Spanish minister of foreign
affairs at Madrid insisting that the
United States government disavow
tho action of the senate as a condition
precedent to contlnucdfrlcndly re
lations between the two governments.
Tho president and cabinet ministers
present wero Inclined to excuse tho
messago to somo extent upon basis of
ignorance of tho United States and
our form of government.
Tho only result of the conference
was a practical agreement that tho
secretary of stato should promptly
respond In kindly terms to tho com
munlcatlon.of Minster Do Lome' and
thank his government for Its readi
ness to protect Americans and Ameri
can Interests. Spain's demand for a
disclaimer of tho senate's resolution
will bo Ignored. Tho secretary of tho
navy, purely as a measure of precau
tion, will bring an cftlclent lleet of
American war vessels near enough
together to mass them promptly at
any point that may bo threatened.
Washinoton, March 2. A cable
gram reached tho state department
early this morning from Hannls Tay
lor, United States minister at Madrid,
saying tho Spanish minister of stato
expressed deep regret over the Barce
lona affair, and offered completo
reparation. The dispatch added that
measures had been taken to accord
the United States legation protection.
Tho cablegram from Minister Tay
lor Is as follews:
'Tho -minister of state has Just
called to express deep regret that tho
mob Insulted the Bartcelona consul
ate by breaking windows and offered
a complete reparation. Ho Informed
me that the government on Its own
motion has taken every precaution to
guard the legation and my residence.
I havea sked no protection"
It Is concluded from official advices
that the excitement In Spain Js over
the action of the United States sen
ate leading up to the Insult to tho
United States consulate at Bartcelona
nnd there Is tho corresponding reflex
In WJwtilnirton nt least in onicial cir
cles. Almost every whero the feeling

PROBABLE EXECUTIVE ACTION.
WASHiNOTON,March 2. It Is under
stood that the probablo action of con
gress In respect to tho Cuban resolu
tions the'n pending in both houses,
absorbed tho attention of yesterday's
cabinet meeting. In vlowjof tho posi
tion taken heretofore by tho president
and secretary of state, and which
there Is no reason to suppose thoy
have abandoned, toward all proposi
tions to rccognlzo tho belligerency of
the insurgents, the dccUlgu of tho
senate committee on foreign relations
to express the sentiment and wishes
of congress in the form of a concur
rent resolution Instead of shaping It
as a Joint resolution has given much
gratification to tho administration.
If tho president were to bo con
fronted with a Joint resolution at thin
time recognizing tho bolllgerency of
the insurgents, and oven tho inde
pendence of tho rebels, ho would bo
would be placed In a very dlsagrecablo
position. If he approved tho resolu
tion, it would bo a confession that
tho course pursued by our government
toward Cuba and Spain up to this
tlmo liad been wrong, for It is insisted
there has been no chango In tho re
lations of tho parties to tho warfare
In Cuba that would warrant any
chango In our attitude. It would also
amount to a roversal of tho position
by our stato department, In defiance
of wmeof tho great European powers,
during tho Brazilian Insurrection,
when we Insisted that as a precedent
to recognition the Insurgents must
have a seat of government, must Issue
money and must have a navy, for at
least two or three requisites aro lack
ing in the case of the present in
surrectlon, On tho other hand, If ho veteod a
Joint resolution of this character, tho
president would bo obliged, probably,
to faco a storm of popular disapproval
und to make an issue with congress
that might be fraught with tho

effect, bnt u repetition of tho history
of the Armenian resolution. In that
casc.the senate passed a concurrent1

not force of law, ho was notfobllgcd to

of congress. As a matter of fact, he
did not so act, and the resolution
remains ,lrt the department bf'Stato
absolutely ..Ineffective. The r poii-
dc'ncy of tlic, Cuban resolutions
has caused somo members of tho ad
mlnisUatlon . to take a long look
ahcad-T-as far ahead, indeed, as that
point whero there may bo a deliberate
proposition from congress todcclnro
war, which Senator Morgan has said
must follow tho enaotmont of tho
ponding resolutions nnd they arc
now. discussing tho question as to the
rolativo powers of congress and tho
president In the matter.
Jiappcars. that much' may turn'orf
tho construction placed by tho senate
Judiciary commlttco on the question
now beforo It, as to the proper scopo
of Joint nnd concurrent resolutions,
Ono express provision of tho consti
tution says only congress shall have
power "to declare war." Tills would
seem to carry tho Idea that this may
bo done by n concurrent resolution, ns
It is a power entirely reserved to con
gress, but on tho other hand, another
paragrapli of tho constitution scorns
to require tho president's approval to
any Joint action of congress savo ad
journment. Tho apparent constitu
tional conflict on this point 1b engag
ing tho nttention of tho administra
tion. WHEN THE HOUSE WILL ACT.
Washinoton, Marcli 2. Tho Cuban
resolutions may not bo brought before
the house until Tuesday or perhaps
Wednesday. Tho members in chargo
of tho legislative appropriation bill,
which has th floor, predict that one
or two days of next week will be re
quired to finish that bill, and until it
is out of tho way, Chairman Illtt, of
tho foreign affairs committee, cannot
