UAK IKTELLIGEKT, AMIABLE EACE
Who LiTed on Good Terms With America
Until Germany Interfered.
CAUSE OF THE EECEXT U1BK0GLI0.
Wly Bismarck Has Encouraged War and Fostered
Hatred of America.
The Samoan or Navigators' group of
(islands are in the South Pacific Ocean, in
latitude 14 degrees south and longitude 172
degrees west, and lie directly west of the
coast of Peru. They have an area of 2,650
square miles and a population approxi
mating 33,000, not including the laborers in
troduced from other islands to cultirate cot
ton and cocoanut.
The native Samoan in stature is tall, says
a trriter in the "Washington Post, inclined to
be robust, and of a bright copper color,
more pleasing than the dull tint of the
Sandwich Islander. His strength is stu
pendous, and his endurance a marvel, only
equaled by his chivalrous bearing toward
those to whom he is opposed cither in battle
or native sports.
So chivalrous are they that when two
armies are opposed an attack is never made
without first notifying the other side, to allow
the women and children to be removed to a
place of security. If the party notified be
not ready lor the attack, information to that
effect causes a postponement to another
'designated time. When the battle com
mences it is a bloody one, and noted tor
many feats of personal bravery.
The women are of medium height with
finely formed limbs and plump in figure,
and many have beautiful laces. The eyes
'are the attractive features, being dark and J
soft, with unusuallv long, drooping lashes,
combined with pleasing smiles; which greet
the stranger on every side, and impress him
at once with their amiability and kindly
.le'eling. Virtue and industry are their
teaching, and, in fact, the greatest of all
ceremonies is the courtship and wedding.
The social relations of the islanders are
marked in the different castes. Each village
has a chiefwho governs by right of birth,
liis ancestors having lived in the village
for hundreds of years, occupying the same
frame of the houses the central irame sup
ports being an heirloom of many hundred
3 ears back. The island is governed by a
king and two assemblies, called a "J?ono,"
a kind of upper and lower house; the mem
bers of the two bodies representing villages
and localities all over the islands. Their
oratory is very effective and full of grace,
combining an earnestness and gravity pe
culiar only to these people. Malietoa, the
rightful King, who was enticed on board of
a German man-of-war and is now a prisoner
in Germany, is an old man of 78, and his
next of kin is carrying on the war against
Tamasese, who is in open rebellion at the
instigation of the Germans.
GERMANS FOMENT STRIFE.
About the year 1880, a United States man-of-war
visited Samoa and found the country
convulsed in war. The pretender, Tamasese,
was in open rebellion against the rightful
TKing, Malietoa, assisted by the German in
fluence in Samoa and backed up by a Ger
man man-of-war. The real object ot the
Germans doing business on the islands in
instigating war is the opportunity offered to
trade arms for land. As the war progresses
the native is forced to part with his land for
arms and ammunition, all of iufcrior type,
f -Afe 1
A Tonga Souse,
at immense prices. In this way the Ger
man business houses have acquired great
tracts of land throughout the islands. This
is the reason, pure and simple, why there is
any war or strife in the land. The natives
are not warlike by nature, but rather mild
mannered, fall of sympathy, and averse to
bloodshed; in fact, murders are almost un
known among them.
But a short time ago the German residents
were opposed to the islands passing under
the protectorate ot Germany or any other
country, because with it would follow cus
toms, taxes and a cessation of hostilities,
consequently a loss of trade in ammunition
and arms; but having stripped the natives
of their best land and incurred the ill will
of all the other foreigners, especially the
Americans, they are soliciting a German
protectorate as the only means of holding
their ill-gotten property. The German pro
tectorate scheme under their influence would
Boon come to a focus, which means the utter
annihilation of the natives and the total
absorption of the islands.
UNCLE SAM'S POLICY.
The history of the Sandwich Islands is
Well known, not only in the Samoan group,
' but throughout the South Sea Islands. The
policy of the United States with the Sand
wich Islands was "hands off" to all
European nations, and to allow the natives
to form a government of their own. This
policy was dictated by humanity and justice
to the owners of the land, and moral influ
ence was all that was necessary to ac
complish this end. The United States then
practically guaranteed similar protection
for the other important islands of the Pa
cific, ana, with this precedent, it requires
but a word of vigorous protest to indicate
our wishes, and the people are left un
molested. As before stated, the American influence
predominates throughout all the islands be
cause of the earlier treatment of the Sand
wich Islands by our Government. These
islands were settled by American whalemen
from 2few Bedford "and other Kew En-,
gland ports. American missionaries soon
followed. "When the islands became of
borne importance both the English and
Germans commenced to scheme for their
possession just as the Germans arc doing
now in Samoa: First, by inciting a faction
of natives against the Government, sup
porting and supplying arms and ammuni
tion to the .insurgents. Under these condi
tions either one er the other party is in
duced to seek the protection of those insti
gating the war. The action of the United
States Government, on the contrary, was
, to foster and strengthen the native Govern- i
" t ,suANDS
C - s4moAN
ment, expressing no wish by word or action
to take away the country from its rightful
"While we did not take possession ox the
Sandwich Islands we stood to the front and
with a Christian policy forbade any Euro
pean country from pouncing down upon
them. The disinterested conduct of our
Government toward the Sandwich Islands
is a part of the teachings of the natives
throughout all the principal islands. Na
tive missionaries are sent out by the white
missions in the Sandwich Islands, and have
carried glowing news ot the native Govern
ment of their islands under the friendly
care of the American Government. In re
verse of the kindly treatment of the Amer
ican is the harsh, inhuman policy of the
English, French and Germans.
REBELS BACKED BY GERMANY.
The theory is simple but effective. Insti
gate war among the natives and aid and
abet the revolting side, who, when driven to
extremes, seek the protectorate, which means
the absolute possession by the Christian
nation which has stirred up the strife. As
in the case of the Samoans, the revolting
party is the one led by Tamasese and backed
by the Germans. Tamasese claims to be the
rightful King, which probably never would
have occurred to him had the Germans not
put it into his head.
Protectorate leads at once into absolute
possession, and the native is put to work on
the roads and other labor to which he is
totally unaccustomed. The result is the de
struction and debasement ot the men and
women, whose island homes are seized and
the production in many cases of a race of
white vagabonds much inferior to the
The contrast between such treatment and
the course of the United States with the
Sandwich Islands is the cause of the friend
ly feeling for us, wnich, in the Samoan, is a
confidence amounting to affection. A part
of the tactics of the Germans is to flood their
newspapers with reported outrages by
Americans. On the very face of these re
ports is the stamp of falsehood, as the fol
lowing will show:
In 1881, Tamasese signed an acknowledg
ment that Malietoa was the rightful King.
The document was signed on board of an
American man-of-war and witnessed by
the Consuls and many natives. Yet the
Germans are now putting this man forward
as King, with armed assistance, and accuse
the Americans of interference because they
will not recognize the fraud.
"With the exception of the islands being
ei tirely American in their sentiments
which the Germans cannot overcome, this is
the only cause of complaint; yet their pa
pers are teeming with abuse of us, while we
are supposed to say nothing about the inter
ruption of American trade in the islands,
which is carried on through our citizens do
ing business with California.
The position of the English in regard to
the islands is an undoubted grasping desire
for their possession and a tear of their going
into other hands. Their timidity toward
the Germans prevents a bold assertion of
her designs and leads her into a weak siding
with the Americans. At the first sign of
resentment by the Germans they unhesi
tatingly betray the Americans and their
newspapers commence to publish false state
ments in regard to us.
Since both the Germans and English are
playing the same game in the seizureof
islands in the Pacific there is a sympathy,
at least of purpose, which has heretofore in
fluenced the English to deceive the Ameri
cans, and although they have in a manner
sided at times with ns they have so often
violated the confidence of our people in the
islands that it is almost looked upon now as
a fixed scheme from the commencement to
betray their trust at a critical moment.
The Samoans are not ignorant savages,
but in many cases educated men. It may
sound strange, but nevertheless true, that a
greater per cent of the Samoans can read
and write than is the case with the popula
tion of this very city; more than half the
population of Samoa are Christians who
read their Bible and live within its teach
ings. CATCHING EATE CUTTERS.
The Chicago Rnd Alton Road Now Accused
of Breaking Its Faith.
(SPECIAL TELEGKAM TO TUB DISPATCH.
NEW York, January 24. A dispatch to
this effect has been received from Chicago by
General Eastern Agent McClellan, of the
From advices received from Kansas City it is
learned that the Chicago and Alton Company
has been caught cutting rates to Boston via the
Bee line, and that their agent, one Mr. Mc
Keon, has been fined therefor $150 by the
Kansas City local association.
The local association mentioned in the
message is one of the city agents of the
"Western lines, similar to that of general
Eastern agents, who promise to use every
endeavor to keep agreements entered into by
their superiors and maintain rates. In
Kansas City each of the agents made a
deposit of 150, and if the rates are carried
out by McKcon he will lose that amount,
presumably from his own pocket, but in
reality it will come out of the road, if the
lacts alleged are true. .
The "Wabash people have prosecuted the
charges against the Alton agent, and the
sterythat theyhave been substantiated by
the local associations may be taken with
some allowance. The Alton is not one of
the roads that agreed to bounce its agents if
caught cutting rates.

The Still Unterrified Mrs. Rawson
Tells Her Own Story in Conrt.
ENGAGED AT THE AGE OP ELEVEN
And Gayly Wedded at the End of Fifteen
LEE IS THE 0HLY MAN SHE EVER L0TED.
She Is Frond of Her Eon's Act In Bhootinff the Million
Mrs. Bawson testified in her own behalf
yesterday in the suit against her for shoot
ing Lawyer "Whitney. She gave a very
sensational story of her life. She has been
married three times, the first time at the age
of 15. She knew her son was going to shoot
Bawson, and was proud of the act. At one
time she contemplated suicide and the mur
der of her little daughter.
Chicago, January 25. The trial of Sirs.
Bawson for the shooting of Lawyer "Whit
ney a few months ago was continued to-day.
Mrs. Bdrson was cross-examined by Mr.
Elliott, attorney for the State. She con
trolled herself, as a rule, but occasionally,
when she thought unnecessary questions
were being insisted on, she gave the attor
ney "a piece of her mind" in a short, incis
ive way, with the result that as a rule that
particular line ot inquiry was abandoned.
The lady gave, in response to questions,
a running accout of her life, telling how, at
the age of 13 years, she became a teacher in
New Orleans, of which city her father was
an old resident. At 15 years she was mar
ried to John Slaymaker, a Bed River pilot,
to whom she had been engaged since she
was 11 years old. Slaymaker, who was en
caged in the cotton trade, was paid $1,500
per month. The witness described him as
who spent most of his money for drink."
She lived with him six years.
HER ONLY LOVE.
At this point the court interrupted this
line of questioning, and Mr. Elliott tool up
Mrs. Bawson's experience with Charles G.
Lee, her second husband. She said he was
a wealthy young man of good family. She
married him at the age of 23 years. She
said she lived with him very happily part
of the time, as he was the only man she
ever loved, but he was dissipated and once
had delirium tremens.
He was very high tempered, and once, on
a railroad train, be fired a revolver bullet
through the door of a sleeper because it did
not open readily when he wanted to get into
it, he having left her there, going lorward
to the smoker after a row with the conduc
tor, growing out of the fact that that official
had complied with her request for a glass of
This incident was magnified into a great
shooting affray, involving the question of
the witness' reputation. After living with
Lee a year and a half she secured a divorce
Her next matrimonial venture was with
Banker Bawson, of Chicago. She said she
was not desperately in love with him, but
tried to make him happy. The examina
"Do you think Mr. Bawson loved you?"
"I don't think so. If he had he never
would have preferred a servant to his wife.
He never would have told me to go while
the servant stayed. One trouble between us
was the question of religion. I am sorry I
am not a Christian, but I am no hypocrite.
Mr. Bawson wanted me to teach Sunday
school and lead the Sewing Circle, and I
would not do it. He used to pay his son
I"red 10 cents a hymn for reading to him."
"You said yesterday, Mrs. Bawson, that
you would attend to Matt Hogan later.
What did you mean by that 1"
"I'll tell you what I meant, Mr. Elliott
I intended to have Matt Hogan, Mrs. Hamil
ton and L. H. Bisbee arrested for conspiracy
in going before the grand juryand-swearing
as they did, for it was conspiracy. You will
have the pleasure of prosecuting them, Mr.
These are the persons who testified against
Mrs. Bawson, and whose evidence before
that body was read in court on the day be
fore yesterday. Mrs. Bawson declared that
at one time while married to Mr. Bawson
she became so desperate that she had de
termined to kill herself and her little daugh
ter, "Dot," "Witness showed hr southern
blood when the cross-examiner reached the
shooting of Banker Bawson by her son.
She said she knew her son had a pistol be
fore the shooting, and felt that he would
shoot Bawson that no boy could avoid do
"I love that boy for what he did, and
honored him for it. I am proud of that
"Now, Mrs. Bawson," broke it Mr.
Crews, "you are getting excited and losing
yonr head. Be quiet."
"Don't get excited," said Judge Tuthill.
"I can't help it, Judge," said the witness,
wringing her hands, "I am all unstrung.

rBPZCIAL TELKOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
"Wilkesbarbe, January 24. At 9
o'clock this morning Francisco deLuska, the
Italian detective who figured so prominent
ly in the McCIure murder case, arrived in
this city, having in custody another of the
gang who planned and executed the murder
of Contractor McFadden's young paymas
ter. The prisoner is Zeffa Beverino, a
cousin of Bed-Nosed Mike and a brother of
Antonio Beverino, the blacksmith, who
took the chief part in the shooting and is
now in Italy.
The nrisoner was arrested as an accessory
before and after the fact He was one of
the first in the plot to murder the paymas
ter. He, Mike and another man whose
name has not been given out were the orig
inal planners of the crime. Consequently
Beverino, the blacksmith, was admitted to
the secret, and then Villalla, the other
Italian, who is now in Italy. As the time
approached, however, Beverino declined or
avoided taking any part in the murder. He
promised, however, to say nothing, and,
after the crime was completed, obtained a
good share of the boodle from Bed-Nosed
Mike as the price of his silence.
Last night DeLuska and his prisoner
passed up the Central Railroad and visited
the spot where the boodle was found and the
rifle recovered. They must have remained
all night in the vicinity. On arrival in this
city the prisoner was brought to the Ex

joined by Captain Linden. A long confer

which the conversation was interpreted by

Catarrh to Consumption.
Catarrh. In its destructive force, stands next
to and undoubtedly leads on to consumption.
It Is therefore singular that those afflicted with
this fearful disease should not make it the ob
ject of their lives to rid themselves of It. De
ceptive remedies concocted by Ignorant pre
tenders to medical knowledge have weakened
the confidence ol the great majority of suffer-,
ersinall advertised remedies. They become
resigned to a life of misery rather than torture
themselves with doubtful palliatives.
But this will never do. Catarrh must be met
at every stage and combated with all our might.
In many cases the disease has assumed danger-
