Saturday, November 12, 1898

The Temps announced last night that it was doubtful whether there would be a meeting of the Joint Commission today, and this morning this news is confirmed by a message reported by Mr. Moore as reaching him from Ojeda to the effect that they are delayed by waiting for documents from Madrid, with which they expect completely to overcome Judge Day’s contentions about the scope of the protocol. Senator Frye and Senator Gray came in for an hour’s gossip, but no business was taken up. Judge Day is reported as better but still required to keep his bed; and we are all glad therefore that the Spaniards had already decided to ask for delay since otherwise they would surely have thrown the responsibility for it upon us.
