King Mataafa Wants the Protection
v" of the United Slates.
Kearly All of the Shipwrecked
HaTe Been Sent Home.
Apia, Samoa, May L The shipwrecked
.officers and crew of the United States men-of-war
Trenton and Vandalia, leave here on
the steamer Bockton to-day for Mare Island
avy yard. Owing to reports which had
been received here recently it was thought
that the Oceanic steamship Mariposa would
top at Apia last Sunday, April 28, and
take 300 of the men to San Francisco. "
Preparations were made for the Mariposa's
arrival, and the men were selected to be sent
away in the steamer. The steamer Lubeck ar
Tived here from Sydney on Sunday, and re
ported that Lieutenant J.C. Wilson, who was
sent to Auckland and Sydney to charter a
steamer, had engaged the 2,000-ton steamer
Rockton, belonging to the Australian United
6team Kavigation Comnanr.
The Mariposa did not call at Apia at all but
passed the islands at Tutnila. The mail
schooner which went to Tutulla to connect
with the Mariposa had not returned here at the
time the Bockton sailed for America, and it
was not known whether she had connected with
the Mariposa or not.
The Rockton arrived here from Sydney April
' SB,' and when she was first sighted outside of
the harbor the Trenton and Vandalia sailors,
who have been living in barracks since the
storm, creeled her with loud cheering. Ad
miral Kimberly decided to send iwzj every
man that the steamer could take. The work
of loading the Rockton commenced the next
day. All of the survivors of the Vandalia, in
cluding S officers and 112 men, and 12 officers
and 300 men from the Trenton were sent
, Beside the Admiral and his staff 10 officers
and 75 men remain here. The Rockton was
anchored in the bay abont a quarter of a mile
from shore, andthe men were commanded to go
aboard in small boats about 1 o'clock yester
day afternoon. The Trenton's band was first
to go aboard, and as the boat left the dock the
band played a national air and 500 sailors
ashore united in a great cheer. Every boat
was cheered heartily as it pushed off from
shore. The boats had to pass close to the
wrecks of the Trenton and vandalia.
Allot the men and baggage were aboard be
fore evening, but a few final arrangements
were not completed and the Rockton was not
able to sail nntil the following morning. Nearly
the whole population of Apia was on the beach
when the steamer left her moorings and
steamed out to sea, and for a few minutes loud
cheers were heard in every direction. The
crews of tho men-of-war Kipsic and Rapid and
iiuuureus 01 people on me ueacn cneerea tne
to the Mataafa party. The Mataafa men were
pasting a house at Faleta, asbort distance from
Tamasese's camp, when anumberof Tamasese's
men concealed in the house fired upon them.
Both men were slightly wounded, bntsucceeded
in making their escape. AnumberofMataafa's
warriors stationed in that vicinity were very
much excitAd and thrpatened to make an at
tack upon Tamasese, but were persuaded to I
uso no violence ana to auow me wuueut n
pass unnoticed.
The natives have succeeded in recovering a
safe containing S15.O0O from the wreck of the
German gunboat Eber. .Native divers are still
at work on the wreck of the Eber making an
effort to save the guns. The battery and-other
articles of value of the German crulfer Adler
were taken ashore some time ago. The rudder
fortfcaNipsic, which Admiral Kimberly had
under his personal supervision, has been com
pleted and placed in position, and it Is probable
that the Nlpsic will start for Auckland as soon
as the Alert arrives here. ,..,.
The British man of war Rapid, which left
here ten days ago, returned on the 27th. Her
captain reported upon his return that he bad
been to buwarrow, a small island about 400
miles east of Samoa. Ho stated that the island
was occupied several years ago by a resident of
Auckland for the purpose of raising cocoa
nuts, and that at the latter's request the Rapid
had gone there and raised the British flag and
formally annexed the island as a part of the
.British possessions.

Ekie, May 20. Opponents to the prohibi
tion amendment have risen np in a new
qnaner. ah tne uerman societies, inciuu
ing the benevolent, church and secret socie
ties, have organized, and to-night their rep
resentatives met in secret session. There
were 33 societies represented, and one clanse
in the constitution prohibits any saloon
keeper, wholesale dealer or brewer from being
enrolled, Among the societies which have de
clared against the amendment is a lodge of the
Ancient order of United "Workmen, three
branches of the Catholic Mutual Benefit As
sociation, two tents of the Knights ot the
Macabees, four lodges of the Harukaris, and
several other secret societies.
The action of some of these societies in med
dling as organizations with the liquor question
has stirred up a great deal of feeling among
other lodges of the same fraternity, and threats
are made against the continuance of the char
ters of the aforesaid societies. Over 20 of the
strongest societies arrayed acainst prohibition
are connected with the German Catholic and .
Lutheran Churches ana represent over 2,500
There is a great deal of excitement among
the opponents to the amendment; and if the
election were to take place to-morrow the
amendment would be lost in this county.

The 75 men who remain here are in charge of
Lieutenant Commander Lyon. It is supposed
they .will either be sent home in the course of
another month or be transferred to other
American war ships which may arrive here.
The departure of the shipwrecked sailors is
geeted with a feeling of relief, as Apia is not
rge enough to accommodate such a number

Admiral Kimberly received the following
letter from Mataafa a few days after he had
issued his proclamation advising the natives to
give up war:
MAOIAGI, April 22.
L. A. Kimberly, Admiral of tbe American Fleet:
Your Eiceixenct I and the chiefs and
councilors of my Government at Maciaei.
having consulted together to-day, are highly
pleased with tbe proclamation. The kindness

kindred at Luatuinun is fluished. I declare
the war which was carried on between this part
of Samoa and that part of Samoa is at an end,
because I earnestly desire that Samoa should

I declare that Samoa would escape danger If

wtre to protect and give their support to it and
be the sole master of all Samoa without tbe in
terference of any other power; for in years
gone by we have been endeavoring to form a
strong government on the basis of protection
by three powers. -In consequence Samoa has
been constantly torn to pieces and many lives
iave been lost, and the country has been
brought down to a very low condition. On this
account, we are sure that recurrence of the
triple system woujd be useless. If now one
Sower took charge of Samoa and oontinued to
o so forever, then Samoa would for the first
time enjoy standing prosperity. I place every
hope In your good wisher toward Samoa, and
hope you will not draw back from them. May
you live. Your brother "in the Lord,"
- Mauetoa Mataafa. King of Samoa.
Admiral Kimberly replied to Mataafa's let
ter as follows:
Apia, April St
To Bis Boyal Highness, Malietoa Mataafa.
Your Royal Highness Your letter dated
April a a receivea yesteruay, and read with
great care and interest. Tho previous day I
also received one from Tamasese. In ithe
cays nothing of peace except on the conditions
Of submission. His heart has cot yet been
penetrated by the evils of war nor softened by
the sufferings of the people. Your coble sen
timents for the welfare of Samoa, as shown in
your sincere expressions for peace, and by
council of your chiefs 2nd rulers, prove that
you and they have the true feelings that gov
ern men who love their country better than
themselves. Such men are they who
and responsibility of troublous times that
aurgeVrer the land, as the ocean waves surge
against the shore. They are strong men
against whom the weak can lean like the vine
against the tree. May your services and wis
dom long be spared to Samoa. The United
States now, as far as I know, are In convention
with the other two treaty powers, and I can as
sure you that, as far as she is able, her efforts
will be directed to obtain those points that will
advance and promote the interests of all Samoa
In every respect, and tbe evils that have here
tofore afflicted tbe country will, if not extin
guished, at least be diminished. Have, there
fore, good heart. The day of rest and peace
' and prosperity is not so far away but that its
coming, like tbe dawn, can be seen before the
rising sun. A copy of your letter will be for
warded br the first mall to Wa&hlnrtnn for thn
Information of the Government. Trusting that
Suu may uTe gooa neaiin ana you long may
. o spared, I remain, very respectfully.
Your obedient servant,
, li. A. KlMBEELY,
Bear Admiral, U.aNMof the Pacific station.
Admiral Kimberly declined to make theN
curretpunuence Between mmaelt and Tamasese
public, stating they must first go berore tbe de
partment at Washington. An effort was made
to obtain the correspondence between the Ad
miral and Tamasese from Dr. Knappe. tbe Ger
man Consul, but the latter declined to give it
out for publication. Consul Knappe said he
Lid not think that Admiral Kimberly's procla
mation would amount to anything, as the
bamoans were an indifferent people, and would
read the proclamation once and forget all about
It afterward.
- Dr. Hteubel, the new German Consul at Apia,
arrived here on the steamer Lubeck, from Syd
ney, April 23. The" Associated Press correspon
dent had a short Interview a f ?w days ago with
Mataafa. Me said nis people were great!
rtleased witn tne aance puDiisueo in tbe Ai
miral's proclamations, and felt vey grateful
for tbe interest which the Americans bad taken
In their cause. Ane present war was a great
hardship to the country, .and tbe people wanted
peace. The bad no desire to fight Tamasese or
the Germans.
He said he would like to see the American
. Government declare a protectorate over the
Samoans. He thought that was tbe best way
to avoid trouble, as the natives were continual
ly fighting among themselves, when the Con
suls for the United States, Germany and En
gland bad equal power, junuavits cad been

TUESDAY, May 2i,
s Is there' anything yott-need
for the May Festival? Possi
bly a fan. WhetJier one of the
chorus, or in the audience, yoii
are in need of a- fan of some
sort. It matters not what the
"sort," we have it, and at in
comparable prices. We have
a fapanese Parchment folding
fan, heavy hard-finished bam
boo sticks, fancy silk cord laced,
at 2c. It is good enough for
anybody to carry to the Festi
val We would like especially
to sell every member of the
the chorus one of these
fans. The extremely low
price was put on for that pur
pose. We bought them at a
great advantage, too, and we
guarantee the same fan cannot
be bought for less than $o cents
anywhere but here. We have
enough to supply every member
of the chorus with more for the
others who may and doubtless
will take a fancy to them. 4
5,000 Japanese Parchment folding fans, fin
ished bamboo sticks, at 6c, good size.
The same in a larger size at 10c
Nice Black Parchment Fans, look like satin,

. This is considerable space to
fans, yet you have no idea of
the immense stock we have. It
has not included the fine lines,
up to $20. The Prima Donnas
probably want to be distin
guished from the chorus by a
finer fan. We can suit tfie
most fastidious taste.
