ment. Spain rejeota these principles,
the note continues, "as she always bus
rejected them."
Basing her attitude upon tho justice
of ber cause, the note then savs the
still adheres to these principle, "which
she ha heretofore iuvariably formu
lated." However, thn note adds, In her esire
for peace, she lias gone so far a to pro
pose Pertain compromise, which th
American have alwsys rejected. She
has also attempted to arbitrate some of
the material particular upon which the
two governments differed. Theso pro
posals for arbltiatlon, it I added, the
American had equally rejected. These,
allegations in Spain' reply, a to l-
'tnpted arbitration, refer to her pro
Mal to arbitrate the construction of
the third article of the protocol, and
also lo subaalt the Spanish colonial debt
of Cuba and the Philippine to arbitra

made in a written oommuni ration.
Since it presentation, and in return for
such a: Miration, Spain offered to cede
the territory in dispute. The Ameri

(eela that the United State' propoeale
could not be considered as equitable.
Spain hat, however, eihausted all the
resources of diplomacy and an attempt
to justify her attitude. Seeing that
an acceptance of tbe proposal made to
Spain is a neceemry condition to a con
tinuance of negotiation, and seeing
thai tha reaouice of Spain are not tuch
