For the same reasons, it is said, here will be no intervention, arbitra- tion or any other foreign move, nn- less this country is a parry with Spain -to asking for such outside offices. A Pessimistic Outlook. A rather pessintistieoutlook is taken by one of the high diplomatic officials here, who believes thatdiseontinuanee of negotiations tl Paris will be tel- a lowe<l by the immediate sending of an American fleet to the eoas of Spain, nnother to the Philipllines, nnd a more hitter conflict than that hereto- fore waged. In his ju(lffnmnt Spain bas reached the point where she is ready to lose all rather than volun- tarily yield nlore, and will eontest even though American troops advanee to Madrid. In the EVl(| Np:thl IVIII llave to Vlehl. ]t is nniversallv conceded, however. that in the eml Spain will have to yiehl as she is praetie-illy without a mvy, withont funds, with a disorgan- ized and rebellions army and with prospects of internal disorders. Seine of the diplomats hohl that a serious qneslion arises as to the validJ ily of the protocol in case the peace negotiation fail. it was, it is said, only a preliminary step to a trealy, and if the treaty, fails, so. too, this preliminary step becomes unffatory, exee])t so far as it has been carried lute actual effect by the transfer of Porto Rico. SlIII Ground for Hope. lIopes were expressedthrouh diplo- matic quarters that the full reports from Paris would show the crisis less acute than the brief early rel)orls in- dicated, and that some plan couhl vet be adopted to continue the neKo{ia- tions to a sueeessfnl end. Great Interest Shown iu lhe lew[ frool l'arl#. The greatest interesi was exhibited at the state departnlent in all reports from Paris that eame from unofficial. but relmtable sourees. Of oflieial re- ports there were none, and it was said that no Word had come from the American eolnmissioners since Satur- day. The impression obtaiued among the officials thut the sitnation is not qnite as acute as was at first supposed nnd that the prosl)eets of a treaty be- ing framed by the present eonunis- sign, rs are not yet to t)e abandoned. -Really a Spectacular Extlbition. It wns hinted that the Spanish re- sistance was really a speetaet,lar ex- hibition inl(nded to convince the Spanish people at, home that the best efforts were being pul forth to obtain the most liberal terms for Spain, and that, at the critical point, some time 1)efore the expiration of the time limit allowed in the note presented hy the American commissioners yester- day, perhaps at the lasl moment, the Spanish eonmtissioners will sueeuulb to the inevitable and accept a treats on the lines hlid down.
