Better Feeling Prevails.
Nkxv York, April 10. A special to llio
World, from Madrid, eajs:
A better feeling prevails, especially
among the journalists and the politicians
because of the sympathy for Spain dis
played by iho press of Europe, especially
that of France. Besides, official tele
grams from the Spanish legation in
Washington assure this government that
President Clevehnd will tako no action
on the Cuban resolutions adopted by
congress, and will not movo at all in tLo

by his followers regarding the comiDg
elections in Unua, declared:
"I consider it is carrying fiction too
far to bring into parliament alleged rep

tho legality of the iowera which summon

parliament styling themselves deputies
"Elections are impossible whero war
has destroyed tLo electoral machinery,
and-where the electors can only move
amid the bayonets of our soldiers in dis
tricts occupied by our troops, or with a
passport delivered by the insurgents in
the extersive territory tlioy hold.
'"That the representation of Cuba in
parliament should have no other origin
than force represented by a governor
general is scandal. I cannot counte
nance it. My attitude is the logical se
quence of what I have always believed
and what I have declared on various oc
casions since the dissolution of the last
hcuse was mooted.
"I therefore insist that the deputies
from Cuba will lack all authority, and
will not be legal representatives of the
colony in courts, because they represent
no more suffrage than that of the governor-general.
"And ts I will tot recognire those
deputies as legitimate, I will select an

St. Locis, April 10. A special to tho
U lobe-Democrat from Washington says
a document ct great moment was
drafted at the state department on Mon
day and was carried by Secretary Olney,
ia person, to the White Home. It has
been belore the president ever since.
Several times the secretary has been
sent for and has been closeted with the
president. General SchoGeld, in whose
knowledge of the inter-relations of civil

and it ia now thought he has reached a
conclusion which will be made known to
the full cabinet today.
Various rumors prevail as to the exact
character of this document. There it
reason to believe that it is addressed to
ths Spanish government; that it deplores
the existing conditions in Cuba, and
tuat it expresses the earnest desire of
this country for a speedy settlement on
terms honorable to both Spain and the

New Yoek, April 10. A Herald spe
cial from St. Petersburg, ears :
The official Journal dc St. Petersburg,
in the course of a slrone nrtic'i on
Spain's determined effort to suppress
ine insurrection in Cuba, fays the insar
rection is merely organized briz&niLm-
Hence, the insurgents have no right to
be considered belligerents. The revolt-
ers consist merely of bands who havi
overrun the country, giving themselves
over to depedat ions and retiring when
thejroops arrive. It is sufficient, says
the" Journal, to stale that the chiefs of
the insurrection are negroes like Maceo
or strangers, like Roloff and Maximo
Gomez. They have in their possession
neither a coast line nor any Eeaport
