Under the circumstances, it was eel- dent that tim cabinet meeting, at most, could not consider the situation with all the light which the text of the re- ply would give, and at most the only consideration would be as to the pohcu, of enter,sluing incidental questions which tnizht be raised by the reply. t)plnion Appears to Be Divided. As to this, official opinton appears to be divided. The general drift of tim sentiment was toward standing strict- ly on the conditions first laid down b the United States. and requiring a di- rect answer, accepting or rejectiag without any consideration of incidenta questions which Spain's reply might raise. But on the other hand there wta believed to be a considerable influential - element of the administration desiroua of a realization of qrhe Yreecnt Prospects ot l'eaee, an long as every vital and cssential condition laid down by this govern- luent was accepted, even though the Spanish reply sought to dispose of other incidental points involved in t transaction of this vast magnitude. So fat" ms the reply itself is con, cerned, even the best.-informed govexa- ment ofiiciais had no information, and there was Little but ConJecture as to its contents. But there were ew eral points appxently established be- yond question. First of hese wwa that the reply was so framed as tn be considered by those who drafted it an acceptance of all the renditions laid down by the United States. Second, it was established that this aeceptan was a general characterization of th document as a whole, and that in mak- ing the acceptance Spain had pre- sented ELaborate Views on Each Pelnt l[nvolveI and on questions which would natural- ly arise when the American conditions were cm'ied into execution. This raised a question as to whether the reply would be accepted as com- pletely responsive to tie Atuerian terms, or as an idireet opening el negotiations on subordinate pot(Its.  determination on this matter can nO be reached ntil the administration has the full text of the reply, and ia able to measure the seriousness of the incidental points raised. Strung Hope of Peace. If the points are purely ineidenl and formal strong hope is entertaiael that peace will be realized as a resa| of the present negotiations, but t Spain seeks to impose important tions there is a prospect of delay possibly a refusal to accept the as responsive. The latter conditiotia hardly expected, however, in any quar- ter.
