The positions of tin com missions, nays an American com missioner, Is that of two card players, each studying bis own hand and wait ing for Ills opiainent s lead. (Much Work Ahead. in spite of this temporary halt In llo the negotiations, and contrary to gen eral expectation. Judge Pay, president of the American commission, believes ihe treaty will be signed next week. But a glut deal of work must be done before the treaty 1? ready for signa tures. as after ten weeks of negotia tions the only articles arc qited by both commissions are the three load ing ones, providing for (lie cession of the Spanish colonies, anil those only In piineiple and not in language. The adjournment today was at Judge Day’s request, as the long morning session developed a divergence of opin ion. Had the Joint session been held the Americans would not have entered it as a united laxly. The exact nature of the differenecs of opinion cannot, lie ascertained, but it Is believed some of the commissioners are In » more yielding mood towards Spain than their colleagues. There Is no doubt that the Spaniards on Monday will report the arrival of their government’s Instructions, the absence of which caused Friday s ad journment.
