At the close of the second cabinet
meeting last night, on the best au
thority It was stated the meeting
was devoted wholly to consideration
of the message's addition, necessitated
by the receipt of a latter note
from Spain adylsing this government
of the granting of an unconditional
armistice. The suffix to the presi
dent's message merely recites this
latest devolopement of the Spanish
situation, giving the substance of the
Spanish note and "recommending it
to the earnest consideration of con
gress." Otherwise the matter stands
The Spanish note did not alter
either the message or the situation.
"It Is merely," said a member of
thecablent, '-what Spain has been
aiding for all along more time. It
docs not touch the situation, and the
president's message is left precisely
as it was, merely stating the fact of
this latest development."
Another member said after tbe
"Our meeting last night was for the
final reading of the message.
The president asks that he bo given
authority to use the array and navy to
bring about peace in the island of
Cuba, and Insure them a stable gov
