With tha OaltMl Htatat-AdrMtagM of
Ha'ana, Dec, 29. Tlie excitement
caused by Senator Call's resolution In
favor or tho acquisition or Cuba by the
United States has not subsided. It
Increases ir any thing, although not so
oM)idy displayed. A cablegram from
Madrid tends to keep up Uio anxiety
and showing that thn provallingophlon
In tho mother country Is that the
United States Government, although
appearing to he indifferent, Is aiming
at annexation. The liberal party in
palu is taking advantage of the
situation nnd is pressing tho Govern
ment to grant Cuba all tho liberties and
privileges she claims and thus secure
hor fldelity and defeat tho claims of
the annexationists. In Cuba Call's
motion has taken hold not only of pro
fessed annexationists, who aro In larg-r
numbers hero than Is generally
supposed, but also of a vast
majority or the Cuban people,
who piofoundly belle vo that it
was presented in tho Senuto In ac
curdanrn with some secret resolution
passed in the Pan-American congress,
which Is tho bote nolr of tho loyal
.Spanish pnrty. Tho Hldulgnnbe loving
Spain to he still tho Spain of the Fif
teenth century never ceaso to declare
that "the ever-faithful island" Is not
for salo, that there Is not enough trim
uro In tho wor d to buy her, that force
can not take her. and th.it Spain would
spend her hist d-dlur nnd sacrlllco her
last soldier to maintain the Integrity of
her territory. They contemptuously
ignore tho possibility of Cuba going
over to tho United States of her own
accord, yet the party in favor of such
action Ih growing every day. It em
braces all the IImtiIuiiiI discontented
elements of the population with a pow
erful nucleus of the old republican
partt, which has mndo many efforts to
cstabii h the independence of tho Isl
and. All now seo their only hopu is In
the Un.tod States. Tlioy claim
Blaino is well aware of tho im
IMirtunco of Culm to Spain, nnd uio con
vinced that before long Cuba will enter
the American confederation, where her
commercial interests ami political as
pirations lie. Tho plundering and
ruinous administration of employes
whom tho Spanish Goverumuut sends
to Cuba have greatly iuereasml tho
public discontent, and hits converted
with the annexationists a large number
of rich Spaniards ItcloiurJng to tho con
servative party, who seo their fortunes
melting away throiiKli steady deprecia
tion or property or all kinds. All these
disaffected elements only neol to Iks
united under it strong hand to make
the annexation sentiment of tho coun
try tell. Thou Cuba would fall as
nntuially to the United States as a ripe
jioar to tho ground. One of the stiong
est Incentives of the patriotic annexa
tionists to a union with their great
neighbor Is that their fair Island may
be nved rrom thu grasp of negroes und
the fate of Huytl and San Domingo,
to which It la tending.

"There Is no rigor, properly to he

Salicylate of cinchonldiiie and quinine
