Washington, Nov. 23. - The cabinet held a very short meeting, as the president and several of its members attended the wedding of Mr. Harían, son of Justice Harían, and Miss Noble. The time of the meeting was taken up with matters from the several departments. President McKinley informed the cabinet that hls message was practically completed, but he did not read any portion of it to them. It is probable that the message will be considered at the next meeting.
