Doubtful Whether or Not It Is a
Spain Presents Elaborate View* That
May be Destructive.
Washington. Aug. 9. The rahin -t
adjourned at 12 35. witout having re
ceived official werd of the Spanish ar
nrligctr'N'o hour ha* been fixed for
M. Gambon to arrive, but when the
cabinet hrok, up it wti stated that tbe
Arp! -saior m ght ileltver the antov. .
to the President within an hour. The
President made no statement about re
assembling tbe cabinet after receiving
tbe answer. It Is understood, however,
that the tenor rs the reply might neces
sitate the railing of the cabinet to
What It Is.
Spain's reply to the peace conditions
are In th’ hands of the French ambas
sador, but were not delivered to the
President tip to a late hour today.
Even the best Informed government
officials have no information as to the
content#. But there are several points
apparently established beyond ques
tion. Two of tbes* is that the reply was
so framed as to be considered by those (
who drafted It an "acceptance of all the
conditions laid down. Second It ea
teb-ished that this acceptance «vas the
general characterization of the docu
ment as a whole and that in making
the acceptance Spain had presented
elaborate views on eaeh part involved
and on questions which would natural
ly arise which the American conditions
would carry Into executlos.
Are They A^eptable?
This raised the question as to wheth
er the reply would be accepted as
completely responsive to the American
terms or as an indirect opening of ne
gotiations on subordinate points. De
termination on this matter cannot be
reached until tbe administration has a
full text of the reply. If the points are
purely incidental and formal strong
hope is entertained that peace wilt he
realized, but if Spain seeks to impos”
important conditions there is prospect
of delay and possibly refusal to accept
the r-ply Of- responsive.
In a Fe v Moments.
La f ?r. —Ambassador Cambon will
present Spain's answer in a few min
lit''. It is on rente to tbe White
House. The answer will Bot be made,
public until McKinley has replied.

Spain inlimaies preference of reten
