The Duke of Aosta has agreed to accept the Spanish

Crown, if -elected by the Cortes. The vote is to be taken on the 6th. According to telegrams, the nomination meets with resistance among the majority, and the cry is raised that the candidate is a foreigner. It is probable, however, that both the Montpensierists and the Clericals will give way, and that the Duke will be elected.
