between tbe United States and Spain.
The treaty was dined at 1:45 o'clock this
Tbe Joint commission met at 8 JO p.
bat tbe engroeeinf of tbe treaty bad sot
been finished, and at i o'clock a reoees was
taken until 7 p. m. Upon tbe reasserabllnx
of the commission, another wait ensued.
At I JO the engiossiDg bad been completed,
and 12 minutes later tbe treaty was sign ad.
Tbe long session tbla afternoon, and tbe
subsequent recess was due oidy to tbe fact
that eacb article of tbe treaty bad to be care
fatly read and compared In 8panisband
Knfllab, and to the fact tbat tbe engrossing
of the last article in Spanish was Incomplete.
There bas been a great contest anwif tbe
families and friends of tbe American com
missioner for possession of the psns with
wbicb tbe signatures to tbe treaty were writ
ten. Some of tbe Americans were pro
Tided with handsome pens purchased for
tbe purpose. Tbe Spaniards appeared, to
be unaffected by the souvenir craze, and
contented themselves with tbe ordinary
quill pens strewn on tbe table.
Arthur Ferguson, tbe interpreter of tbe
American commission requested 8enor
Montero Rloe to give blni his pen, saying:
"Have you any desire to preserve tbe pen
with which you will signf
,'None in tbe slightest,'' ssid the Span
iard, with a courtly bow.
The treaty, as signed, consists of 17 arti
cles, It having been lound advisable to sub
divide two or three of tbe articles In tbe
draft agreed upon at the last meeting. Tbe
commissioners ol the two nations wrote
their signatures on two copirs of the treaty,
one oonv beine for the archives of each
1 nation. S .v
J The document was prepared by Secretary
Moore on behalf of tbe United States com
miulon, and by Senor Vallarutl for Spain,
on account of the continued illness ol Secre
tary Ojeda, of the 8panlsb commission.
Each copy contains the English and
Spanish texts of the treaty in parallel
columns. The wording bas been approved
previously by the commissions witbont a
joint meeting, so there was no controversy
on this subject.
The signing of tbe treaty tonight would
afford a subject for a great historical paint
ing. Tbe group, gathered about the table
in the stately chamber of tbe foreign ofiice,
was impressive in itself, while tbe fact that
tbe sense of the momentousness of tbe
issues wblch the act decided, was deeply
felt by all the participants, and gave an
impressive and solemn tone to tbe scene.
Around the great mahogany table sat tbe
10 arbiters of the destiny of ami old and
young nation. Ranged about and behind
were numerous attacbee of the American
commission. Tbe jets from tbe crystal
chandeliers above the heads of those pre
sent magnified the brilliant green and
scarlet of the upholstering In their gaudi
ness. There was a contrast between the black
clothed arbiters and tbe scenery. For tbe
Americans It was a happy ending of the
epilogue of war; for the Spaniards it was
plainly a bitter tragedy, none the less pain
(ul because long foreseen, Tbey sat sileutly
aa though almost crushed, and Bono could
withhold sympathy forBenor Montero Rios,
the president of the Spanish commission,
who coming rrom bis bed, was bundled in
a great ovesooat, though logs were burning
in the fi replace nearby.
The splits of the two bodies were symbo
lised by the clothes worn by tbe members
ol the commissions, for tbe Americans were
attired in evening dress for the dinner given
them immediately alter tbe meeting by
Duo da Louliat, and the Spaniards wore
black track Coats.
Clerk Martin, of the American commis
sion, worked at engrossing the treaty all
day, without even stopping to eat. When
became into the chamber at 7:30 with the
document, he lound the commissioners
waiting. The Spanish copy had arrived a
Arthur Ferguson then proceeded to rcail !
Brst the English and alter that the Spanish j
version of the treaty. This finished, two
copios were passed around the table, the
commissioners signing them in the order
of their rank: William It. Dav. Senator
Cnahmnn K. Davis, Senator William P.
Frye, Wliitclaw Rid and Senator George
Gray; Senor Montero Rios, Senor Abarzuza.
Senor Oarnlca, Senor Vallarutl and General
Cerero y Haons, each commission signing
Ite opponent's treaty. Both were tied with
the Spanish and American colors.
When tbe Mail were prepared to be af
fixed, attendants were sent scurrying for
ribbons of the Freneb tricolor, with wbicb
tbe dooumenta were sealed, a a compli

Tba signing was finished at 8:45. At
tbat time tbe door of the chamber opened,
and Seoor Villaurutla appeared, and ex
claimed to a group of correspondent wbo
