open doors. He gave a detailed description
of the position of the three powers interested,
and wound up with the declaration that there
is no need ot war, and the President should
have at least a half million at his disposal

BIEAMSHIP ROUTE FROM THE UNITED STATES TO AUSTRALIA, SHOWING THE COM
MERCIAL IMPORTANCE OF MAINTAINING THE NEUTRALITY OF THE SAMOAN OR
executive session. When the doors were re
opened, Mr. Sherman said lie would like to
state publicly the position which he took in
regard to the Samoan question, so that it
might appear in the Jlecord, After de
scribing the location, population, etc., of
the Samoan Islands, Mr. Sherman said the
attention of the United States had been early
called to those islands, and a special agent
was sent there, who afterward became Min
ister to the King of Samoa, and who made a
treaty between the United States and Samoa;
that the treatv was made in 1878, and was
signed by Mr. Evarts and the King. Its
second article gave to the United States the
privilege of entering and using the harbor
of Pago-Paco and establishing there a coal
ing and naral supply station, and its fifth
section provided that, in case of differences
with other nations, the Government of the
United States would employ its good offices
in adjusting such differences.
THE BASIS OF OUR RIGHTS.
This, Mr. Sherman said, was the basis of
the right of the United States to
occupy and hold and to establish
in the harbor of Pago-Pago a
station for coal and other naval supplies.
Within a year or two afterward somewhat
similar treaties bad been made with Ger
many and with Great Britain by which
those Governments obtained like privileges
in other portions of the islands, so that, Mr.
Sherman said, each of these three great
commercial nations seenred by the treaties
(following each other rapidly) privileges
somewhat similar in character, but in dif
ferent localities each securing a coaling
station and harbor.
Mr. Sherman went on to speak of a
further arrangement made shortly after
Ward, and which was, he said, very import
ant It had been entered into between
Great Britain and the Government of Sa
moa (but the German and American Gov
ernments were also included in it), by
which the town and district of Apia were
constituted into a municipality, and were
declared to be neutral territory, where each
of the three nations might establish their
storehouses, their workshops, and'all other
buildings necessary lor carrying on their
traffic in these islands.
FOE PURELY BUSINESS PURPOSES.
This territory of Apia was now known as
the capital of the Samoan Islanns, and was
set aside for commercial purposes, the Gov
ernment of Samoa being practicallv ex
cluded from it The Municipal Boarif con
sisted of the German, English and American
Consuls. This treaty or agreement had not
been submitted to the Senate, but had been
signed by the English Consul and by the
Captain of the American ship-of-war Lack
awanna. It had been acted upon by all I
mice uauuuB as iu iuc uaiure ui au agree
ment for the possession and occupancy of
that neutral territory.
Mr Sherman next referred to the treaty
of the 6th of April, 1886, between Germany
and Great Britain, by which a sort of de
limination was established for the juris
diction of each Government in the Poly
nesian group, with a disclaimer that this
portion should apply to the Samoan Islands.
That, he said, was the legal status to-day;
for no other arrangement or agreement had
ever been made in a formal way that
affected, in any degree, the rights of the
ALWAYS A SORT OF WAR.
He did not intend to go into a detailed
history of events in Samoa. It was enough
to say that there was always a sort of quasi
war existing there between several branches
of the people. It was a strange Govern
ment controlled largely by family ties,
somewhat aristocratic, with contentions al
ways existing between the various chiefs.
He" would not dwell npon the painful fea
tures of that civil war; bnt it seemed to be
the general opinion of all the American
consular agents who had been sent there to
examine into the nature of their
Government that the people were totally
unfit to conduct a regular formal govern
ment But that civil war had continued
until finally, in 1883, by the aid of the
Consuls, it was settled br'an agreement that
Malietoa should be King and Tamasese
Vice King. Soon after that settlement
other difficulties had arisen, and a move
ment had been made to annex the Samoan
islands to 2few Zealand, Malietoa sending
an humble appeal to Queen Victoria, asking
for euch annexation. The German Govern-
ment, however, had remonstrated in the
most vigorous manner against it, insisting
that it would be a violation of the treaty.
THE CONFERENCE AT WASHINGTON.
Finally Mr. Sherman brought this history
of events to the conference at Washington,
between Mr. Bayard and the British and
German Ministers, and to the sending by
each of them of an agent to the islands to
obtain further information. He said that it
was manifest that the rebellion of Tamasese
had been organized by the German Consul
and by a German named Weber, who was at
the head of a large commercial house. He
mentioned the arrival of a German fleet at
the islands, some time in May, 1886, and
snoke of an insulting letter lrom the Vice
Admiral to Malietoa, in which he addressed
him not as King, but as head chief.
It was after these insults to the King that
United States Consul Greenbaum raised the
United States flag, at the request of Milietoa,
over the public buildings in Apia. For a
time, he said, the practical effect of that
action, unauthorized as it was, was to check
the action of the German local authorities.
After the German fleet had sailed away the
German and American Consuls had again
joined in a declaration that Tamasese never
had never been recognized by either of them
as king, and that Malietoa was king. This
act had been wholly without authority and
Mr. Greenbaum's part in it had very prop
erly been disavowed by the American Gov
ernment He had no more right to assert a
protectorate there than the German or En
glish Consul had.
WORST OF ALL FEATURES.
It was while the agents of the three
countries (Mr. Bayard and the English and
German Ministers) were engaged in ob
taining information, that the German Gov
ernment deposed Malietoa and set up Tam
asese. This was the worst feature of the case,
because at this very time the negotiations
were going on on a sound, just and honest
basis, lor tne restoration 01 tne statu quo.
There were indications, he thought that
the English Government was coinciding
with the German policy. He was not
stating the facts for the purpose of saying
who was wrong or who was right,
or whether Germany was justified
in the course which she pursued.
He could not say, however, that he found in
the papers any" justification for Germany.
Prince Bismarck, whose strong and imperial
will was shown in all of his communica
tions, asserts the caual rizhts of each of these
Governments, but insisted, as a matter of
policy, that it would be better to place the
custo'dvofthe islands under the control of
one of the powers, and, as Germany had the
largest property interests there, that it would
be best to place it under German control and
NOTHING TO DO FOR KLEIN.
As to the newspaper correspondent Klein,
who had been playing knight-errant there,
the Government of the United States was
in no way responsible for him. The state
ment of the man himself, althongh some
what vainglorious in style, shows that he
had nothing to do with the attack on the
German sailors. He sympathized with
those who were in rebellion against Tam
asese, with whom Klein went as a news
paper man, and possibly took a hand in it,
but the United States Government was in
no sense responsible for him. He (Mr.
Sherman) did not know whether he was a
native born or a naturalized citizen.
Summing up his long speech, Mr. Sher
man said that the first thing to be done was
for the United States to assert its power in
the occupancy and possession of the Bav of
l'ago-.fogo. J.hat ought to be none im
mediately. It did not need war to protect a
nation's rights. The mere assertion of those
rights, the due regard for them, the expendi
ture of money there, the storing of coal
there, the calling of vessels there all of
tnese tnings were assertions oi power lar
more influential than the protocols and
Mr. George The amendments do not
menace war, do they?
NOTHING TO JUSTIFY WAR.
Mr. Sherman I do not think'it necessary
to menace anyone. I believe that a straight
forward, manly negotiation should be en
tered into between these three great powers.
It would be a shame and a disgrace to onr
civilization and Christianity if we could
not agree upon some mode of government
for those islands. Whatever the newspapers
may say, there is nothing in the situation
that would justify war on the part of either
nation, or a breach of the pece until every
effort is exhausted to bring abont a quiet
and peaceful settlement of the con
troversy. First, we want to assert
and maintain our rights to
a station at Pago-Pago, and nobody will call
that right in question. Next, we ought to
do what we promised to do employ onr
good offices to settle the difficulties of this
people. Therefore, I am willing to vote any
suni of movey to enable the President to
condnct negotiations, to make surveys of the
harbors, and to get better information in re
lation to those islands. I am willing to
vote the sum named in the amendment
($500,000), and place it at the disposition of
Mr. Cleveland or Mr. Harrison; and I have
no doubt that the power thus given, to send
agents there and to send ships there, will

AN ALARMING SHOWING.
The Greatest Dnnscr Now Threatening the
Community and What the Leading Pa
peri Have to Say on the Subject.
The leading question of the day among scien
tific men, and in the leading papers, Is the
alarming increase of pneumonia, the death rate
showing an increase of over fle hundred per
cent within the last lew years. Doctor Gouver
neur M. Smith, in an article in the Medical
Record, says that while medical art has ad
vanced of recent years in many directions, "so
far as pneumonia is concerned science has
shriveled." The New York Sun, writing on
this subjeet, says: "The great increase in the
fatality of pneumonia is very alarming, espe
cially as the disease carries off so many in the
fullness of life and health." The New York
Herald says: "Considering the impending
weather changes, it is to be feared this dread
disease will open its campaign very vigorously."
Surgeon General Moore, of the army, in his an
nual report, says: "The principal causa of
death in the army is pneumonia.'
There is one thing that every doctor, every
surgeon and every nurse does upon the first ap
pearance of pneumonia, and that is to stimu
late the system. The life is weakened,and must
be stimulated to throw off this terrible disease.
Pure spirits do this; impure spirits do not. The
amount of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskoy used by
the doctors and nurses in the land, in cases of
pneumonia. Is enormous. One doctor states
that he cured himself of pneumonia three dif
ferent times bv the use of this Great Remedy.
Prudent heads of families have found the ben-
ent oi Keeping this pure preparation in tneir
homes, to be used In cases of emergency. Tem
perance men and women. Doctors of Divinity,
and the most advanced thinkers unhesitatingly
indorse it. It is used not as a beverage, but as
the most scientific remedy of the day, and It
can show more cures than any other known dis
covery. Great care should be exercised in se
eming the genuine, and great promptness in
taking it on the approach of the nrstsymptoms.

of pairs sold, of the $8 Made-to-measure
the last few weeks, and at a
time wardrobes are not being
replenished. There is a rea
son for it. The magnificent
quality and the wonderfully
low price. We've been for
weeks speaking of their great
value. We're not done with
the subject till we get every
wearer of Trousers interested.4

ANOTHER BOMB SHELL
Maj and Morrow,
WHEN THEY WILL CLOSE OUT THREE LOTS
OF MEN'S FINE OVERCOATS,
$12 and $15,
Why this sacrifice? It is as plain as truth itself. The motive is not
a philanthropic one. We're not desirous of giving the goods away, but
our usual winter has been altogether too mild and balmy to suit the mer
chant who has had heavy goods to sell. Hence, the charming (not for
us) weather has left us with "severial" more Overcoats than we want or
have room for.
Remember, too, that, though the Overcoat season may be nearly
over for us 'tis not for you. Last year it was March that brought us
"winter's icy blasts," and this year all indications point to the same re
sult. An Overcoat, therefore, still is the boss investment, especially if
bought at this great special
$4 90 Sale
During these two days we will offer 250 Men's first-class blue Chin
chilla Overcoats, 175 Men's elegant Diagonal Cassimere Overcoats and
about 50 Men's blue Chinchilla long Ulsters with high storm collars
all at the uniformly low price of $4 90. Some of these Overcoats were
previously considered good bargains at $10, while others are regular S12
and $15 garments. We have put them all together on one counter, and
to-day or to-morrow any man will be welcome to take his choice for
only $4. go. But, bear in mind, Cash only buys a garment at this price.
Don't ask for credit, as we will not charge anything to anybody.
DURING THE ABOVE SALE, TO-DAY and
TO-MORROW, we will also offer 100 dozen
Men's fine French Seal Caps, worth $2,
for 69c; and 60 dozen Boys' good
Astrachan and Plush Caps, flan
nel lined and ear-lugs, worth
50c, for only 13 cents.
