The Trouble Anaong the panlah Trool at Havana llridged for the Time lleing, and Quiet Reigns. Havana, Nov. 13. (Via Key West, Fla., ov. 14.)--The disturbances here are momentarily over. Everything is quiet, and regular Spanish troops are patrolling the city. The Spanish government. Sunday, offered the market here 425,000, at thre days on London, in order to apply the proceeds to the payment of the troops.

Nov. 14. It was decided that 1 here would be no joint sessions of the peace commission Monday. Delay Until IVe,lneda/ Aeeordedo Secretary Moore of the UnitedStates eomanssion received from Secretary Ojeda of the Spanish commission a note saying that the Spanish commis- sion had found it imposihle to pre- pare their memorandum for presenta- tion. and asking if the United States commissioners would be inconven- ieuced if, owing to the late arrival from Madrid. of expected data, the next meeting be deferred until M'ednesday. Seeretary Moore replied that the American commissioners were quite ready to accommodate the Span- lards in this matter, and the joint se:s- sion was practically deferred until Wednesday next. Importance Attaehcd to the*Delay. importance is attached o this de- lay, it being regarded as indieating that the Spanish commissioners are prel)aring for a final stand in these negotiations, and it may now be deft- nilely stated that they will not sign a treaty of peace which yields to Spain no more from the Philippine islands than have thus far been offered or in- diealed by the Americans. Shouhl the latter announce that the United Stales is duly willing to reim- burse Spain for her paeifie expendi- tures in the Philippine islands, the Spanish commiguioners will reply that their mission is finished. Should this occur, it is possihle the Spaniards will also suggest a suspension of the ne- Collations through the commislon.and a resumption of negotiations between :Madrid and Washington. Attltndo of the Spnlardl EXplained. This attitude of the Spaniards is ex- plained by the fact that the members of the Spanish commission have politi- cal alliances and personal responsibili- ties to constituencies and the national creditors ',ff Spain which restrict them o certain lines, which are as far athe ministry at Madrid cares to go. It is pointed out that if' the five Spanish commissioners here signed a treaty yielding the Philippine islands to the United St at es without lessening Spain's debts in an appreciable degree they eonld not return home with the pros- pect of any political future before them, and possibly would be in danger of violence at the hands of mobs. WIU l[arn at the Next Meeting. At the next meeting of the commis- slons the Americans will learn the definite attitude of Spain ou any pro- position thus far made. The Span- lards, however, in this presentation will not declare all negotiations closed. They witl insist that the sovereignty of Spain over the Philippine is- lands is beyond question, but will announce Spain's readiness to yield that sovereignty for an ade- quate equivalent and will then in- vite negotiations under the Spanish construction of the protocol. The American commissioners may then communicate their final, attitude to the Spaniards, but the Americans are expected at a future meeting to pre- sent a carefully-prepared conclusion of their contention and conditions, Then Mpala ]VIII Deelat Merrill. Shouhl they be no different from those already presented, the time will then have arrived when Spain will de- elate herself helpless though stead- fast, and will await the next step of the United States, whatever it may be. Thus Spain will be able to say to her creditors that she has done her utmost and that the issue must rest between them and the United States.
