Yashinhton, Oct. 12. A cable mes
sage from Madrid received here early
this morning said that it was roported
thero on tho best of authority that
tho American government had notified
tho Spanish minister at Washington
that it was necessary for Spain to act
promptly in crushing the Cuban in
surrection, and that the report caused
a profound sensation in Madrid.
Tho truth of tho report cannot bo
confirmed at tho stato department
Tho officials, when approached, would
neither affirm nor deny tho story,
though their manner would indicate
disapproval of its accuracy. It is be
lieved quite probable that representa
tions may have been mado to Spain of
tho wisdom of uggressfve and active
operations against tho Cuban insurg
ents, but it is thought that tho United
States government did not make thoso
suggestions, and that, if made, thoy
came from Minister DcLumo nntt were
based on Ills personal views of the
situation and on his observation of the
trend of sentiment iu the United
States and his knowledge of tho pur
pose of tho friends of tho insurgents
to press their cause vigorously soon
aftet tho assembling of congress.
Daily events point strongly to a de
termination to force the question on
tho uttcntion of congress in tho belief
that tho legislative channel affords
tho most practicable route to tho ac
complishment of something in behalf
of Cuban independence, tho executive

TUB POLICY OP THIS COlXTItY.
Senor DoLouie, the Spanish m'n
istcr, had a short interview with
Secretary Ulney yesterday, nnd in the
courso of their conversation tho min
ister, perhaps in answer to the secre
tary's inquiry, mado a statement that
operations in Cuba would bo conducted
with greater vigor hereafter. As the
president must certainly make somo
reference to tho insurrection in his
annual message to congress when it !
meets in December, it would be but
natural that Secretary Olney, upon
whom ho must rely for his informa
tion, should take stops to gather data
upon which to base a judgment of
probable future events.
"Whllo it is true that President Grant
did, as indicated in his messuges to
congress, entertain a belief that inter
vention in the then progressing rebel
lion in Cuba would bo justifiable, this
view was never acceptable to Secre
tary Fish, and it lias not scoured tho
adherence of international luwyors.
Tho whole weight of authority is de
cidedly adverse to the assertion by a
neutral nation of a right to say when
war between two combatants has
progressed to a point where it must
be stopped. Jt may bo recalled
that some such proposition was
mado during the last stages of tho
China-Japanese war. but it never went
further than tho oxeroise of tho good
offices of tho interested nations to
bring about neaco, which function is
entirely distinct from direet interven
tion. Tho question is also separate
from that of the recognition of tho
belligerence of tho insurgents, which,
according to American policy and
practice, must be determined purely
by the facts in each case.
