"Washington, January 21. Troubles
liave existed among the Samoans since I860.
In that year the German Commercial and
Plantation Society at Apia, or rather its
predecessor, the firm of Godcfrov, of Ham
burg, stood on the side of Malietoa, a chief
belonging to one.of the most distinguished
families of Samoa. Throughout the suc
ceeding 20 years the foreigners who settled
at Samoa, Americans, Englishmen and Ger
mans, sought, by taking sides with or
against Malietoa, to strengthen respect for
'their respective nations, and thereby in
crease their commerce.
In 1878 the United States, which had
'previously obtained a concession of a mag
nificent harbor in the Samoan Islands and
established a coaling station there, made a
treaty with Samoa. Being in a state of
great confusion. Sir Arthur Gordon, as
Queen Victoria's commissioner in the
"Western Pacific, established King Malietoa
firmly on the throne and issued a proc
lamation. This proclamation was followed
by a treaty with Jlalietoa, dated August 18,
1879. In the same year Germany also made
& treaty with Malietoa.
WHAT THE TREATIES WERE.
The treaties entered into between the
United States, Great Britain, Germany and
Samoa were treaties of friendship and re
ciprocity, agreed to for the purpose of pro
moting the trade which American, English
and German merchants had gone to the re
mote Samoan Islands to establish. It was
understood and acreed amonc the treaty
powers that the independence and neutrality
of these islands should be forever preserved.
While America and England have re
mained consistent to the treaty obligations
and have recognized Malietoa" as the legiti
mate ruler, the policy of the Germans has
been a wavering one. At one time they
would recognize Malieota as King, at an
other the? would take sides with the op
In 1884 King Malietoa was coerced into
an agreement with the German government,
and sent a protest about it to the German
Emperor. Following the protest there was
sent a petition to the English Queen, signed
by nearly all the Samoan chiefs, praying
for annexation to Great Britain, on the
ground, anions others, that they were afraid
of being forcibly annexed by the Germans.
GERMANY FOILED AGAIN.
In 1885, and again in 18SG, further at
tempts were made by Germany to seize the
sovereignty of the Samoan Islands. Each
time the attempt was successfully resisted
by the British and American representa
tives. In the autumn of 1886 a German
. named Brandcis appeared in Apia. The
public was civen to understand that he was
an the service of the German Commercial
and Plantation Society. Among the em
ployes of this firm, however, it
was known that he had been selected to be
the minister of Malietoa's rival, Tamaesse.
Brandeis at once began to study local
conditions, worked at times at the German
consulate, made himself familiar with the
business and social relations of Apia, and
then went to Leulunioego, the home of
Tamasese, in the immediate vicinity of the
great cotton and cocoa plantation of the
German Commercial and Plantation Soci
ety. There a house was built and furnished
by this society for Brandeis; and there he
stayed, without it being publicly known, as
theadriser-of Tamasese and perfecting him
self in the Samoan language.
AEMED BY TnE GERMANS.
Tamasese and bis adherents were then
amply supplied with arms and munition.
At the beginning of 1887, within a brief
period, hundreds of muskets were sent
throueh the German Commercial and Plan
tation Society, through Brandeis, to Tamas- j
ce s party. A little later a German fleet of
four or five ships was at anchor in the harbor
of Apia. Four days later the Germrn consul
wrote to Malietoa, complaining that
German settlers had been attacked by the
natives on March 22 of that year, and that
from time to time during the previous four
rears the German plantations had been
damaged to the amount of some thousands
of dollars a year. A heavy demand for
compensation was made for the damage to
the plantations, without a single item of
particulars being given to the Samoan
The monstrous demand was made that the
sum claimed for compensation should be
paid the next day a demand which, in
such a country, it was practically impossi
ble to meet The King wrote, promising
an answer in three days, and the reply
given by the German commander was
the landinc on the next day of
700 troops from his squadron, and
the issuing of a proclamation in the name
of the Government of Germany, declaring
Tamasese, King of Samoa. At the same
time Malietoa was deported, first to Ham
burg, then to Bremerhaven, was lodged and
boarded under police supervision at Lehr, a
suburb of Bremerhaven, and then was taken
to Australia on board the steamship Ueckar
by a German naval officer.
THE CLIMAX ARBIVES.
The native opposition to Tamasese, or to
the Brandeis-Tamasese Government, as it
ii called, reached its climax on September
9, 188S, on -which date they crowned
Mataafa, a legitimate successor to Malietoa,
King of Samoa, with the title of Malietoa
Tooa Mataafa. Notices of tne event were
at once sent to the American, English and
German Consuls, the French priest and to
Tamasese. Mataafa is still at the head of the
Government, and is doing all in his power
to keep it out of the hands of Tamasese and
his German allies.
The position of the United States to-day
is contained in the following instructions
which Secretary "Whitney telegraphed to
Admiral Kimbcrly at Panama on Janu
You will at once proceed to Samoa and ex
tend full protection to American interests,
citizenB and property. You will consult with
the American Vice Consul, examine bis ar
chives and otherwise inform yourself as to the
situation and all recent occurrences. You
will protest against the subjugation of the na
tive Kamoan Government by Germany as in vio
lation of a positive agreement and understand
ing between the treaty powers, but inform the
representatives of the British and German
Governments of your readiness to co-operato
In cansinc all treaty rights to bo respected,
and in restoring peace and order on the basis
of a recognition of Samoan rights to inde
pendence. Endeavor to prevent extreme
measures against the Samoans and to bring
about a peaceful settlement.
The coprah trade ot Samoa seems to be
the canse of all the present trouble. Coprah,
the dried kernel of the cocoanut, is the
staple commodity of the Samoan Islands, as
it is of all the islands of the "Western Pacific.
In 1885 the exports of this article for Ger
man account were estimated at the value of
5222,742. The competition of four American
houses has greatly irritated the German
traders, their profits being thereby cinch in
creased. Death by Her Own Hand.

THE SCALES DEOP.
The first five minutes back there revealed
several shocking things. In the first place
a fair singer or dancer isn't made of iron.
She doesn't warble her little warb and re
turn as coldly as she appears, but on the
contrary, hangs anxiously about the flies to
watch the effect of her performance upon
the audience, and a thousand cheers will
not pay for one single hiss.
Then again, the girl who sings ot days
gone by in a deep bass, yells in the most
natural high C manner for some article she
Such a rustling, bustling, gossiping set as
the dozen professionals behind the scenes is
rarely heard outside of a sewing circle. The
merits of the men in the front row are thor
oughly discussed, and the private boxes re
ceive especial attention. One youns lady,
who appears in a beautiful black silk gown
and a smile (this is authoritative), actually
talked coolly of this morning's prospective
breakfast while showing just how a set of
miraculously tight tights were put on.
They are foiled inside out just like a
well, a pair of tight gloves, then one tiny
set of toes is inserted, and the rest is easy.
.Both lady actors and singers watcn each
other most jealously while each is doing her
particular part, and the down-trodden, de

it's just as easy.
A perfect stage makeup, as one of the fair
dancers last night explained can, in a
pinch, be perfected in five minutes. The
first point seems to be to have everything in
its proper place inthe dressing room, though
to tne uninitiated confusion reigns supreme.
After the appropriate clothing is donned
the painting and powdering and the mar
velous complexions are added, generally

fright of a belle, but serves to bring the
professional to perfection. Then there are
all sorts of jealousies in the family.
This girl, or that girl, has too much pow

fellow, or that fellow, thinks he is the en

Then, after the dancing is all over, and
after the fun is all done, the popular idea is
that a lot of jaded actors ana actresses seek
their well-earned rest. Not any. At 12, or
1, they are at their brightest and merriest,
and, for pure, unadulterated wit and good
humor, a supper with these people in the
early hours of the morning is prescribed as
a sovereign cure for melancholy.

New York, January 21. Judge Patter
son, in Supreme Court Chambers, heard
arguments to-day upon an application of
Henry F. Gillig, formerly manager of the
now defunct American Exchange in Eu
rope, for the appointment of a receiver for
the Booth and Barrett combination, and for
an accounting. Mr. Gillig, in a lengthy
complaint, says that four years ago Law
rence Barrett was suffering from a lack of
funds, and applied to him for financial aid.
He induced the directors of the exchange
to assume Barrett's liabilities, in considera
tion of which Gillig claims that Barrett
made an agreement on February 10, 1885,
to pav him 10 per cent of his earnings,
weekly, until the amount advanced was re
paid. Barrett, he alleges, paid about 51,500 and
then quit, but he subsequently paid more
and "reduced the debt of 40,000 to 515,000.
When the money was advanced the plaintiff
asserts the Booth-Barrett combination was
contemplated, and it was in view of this that
the money was advanced. Gillig claims
that he is entitled to the money unaer the 10
per cent agreement, which was- made with
him personally and not with the exchange.
Colonel Robert Ifigersoll, who appeared
for the defendants, said that Mr. Gilhg's
position was a peculiar one, lor lie seemed
to be in quest of a fee for securing loans
from his own company. He contended that
the qnestion at issue was whether the 10 per
cent was bribery of Mr. Gillig or payment
to the exchange. If the latter Mr. Barrett
owed the exchange nothing, becanse of the
usurious interest exacted. He denied that
the Booth-Barrett combination was con
templated at the time stated, The allega
tion that Mr. Barrett was insolvent was
characterized by Mr. lngersoll as nonsensi
cal, for ho is worth $200,000 over all liabil
ities. An affidavit in which Mr. Booth states
that on hearing of Mr. Barrett's predica
ment he sent him two checks for $15,000
and $2,000 respectively was submitted, and
the court reserved its decision.
