The Situation in Spain The Times has done a useful

service in publishing in four articles the late General Primo de Rivera's own story of his Dictatorship. Opinions will differ as to the efficacy of some of his measures, especially in the economic field, but- only. narrow prejudice could maintain that his rule was anything but beneficent. That Spain is not yet out of the wood seems to -be proved by the persistent rumours of defiance of the present Government by a military group in Barcelona, including General Martinez Anido and General Barrera (the Captain-General) who .refuses- to accept notice of dismissal. According to the latest reports _ the Government have , appointed the King's brother-ijaTlaw, Prince .Carlos of Bourbon, to the post... The. King. has postponed his visit to Portugal, which was fixed -for April.
