ise of plenty to eat. warm quarters and
a brilliant morning. The foundry,
where tne c-im p 'm established, was at
one time the experimental laboratory
of the notorious Johnson, the patentee
of a process of gas manufacture
from crnda i il Deserted for yars
the sudden heat of the many open
camp fires had a curious effect The
fr z-n floor thawed out before 10
o'clock and the commonweal was wal
lowing in mud six inches deep in con
s' cmi n"e. Thirty-four of the soldier-;
broke throngh the picket line ont of
camp and spent the night coml'ortahly
in the lockup.
Despite the quantity of meat donated
yesterday by in people here, mtnv of
the older and more respectable soldiers
cot nothing bat potatoes an d bread fo'
breakfast, i it'nei's had several chops,
ceff , preserves and other dsliCSOias.
The scene in the old foundry was very
picturesque, especially since the men
hnve began to cook their own
rations. E ch one built a little stick
fire. The atmosphere in conseqnence
whs dense with smoke, hut the good
Delated hubbub all around showed
tht there wns some enjoyment In
roughing it. Many Colombian oeopl
were down early in the hollow to visit
the camp, But by Browne's orders no
person was admitted.
Coxey resumed command of the
cominonw.nl, and there was no lincor
iriir after break test as heretofore. The
commissary wagons were sent round
to the storeroom in Columbiana and
loaded with the surplus good things
donated by the Citizens, fireak
fast rasserl oil without any event, and

There was a cloudless sky, with

AUCKLAND, March HO - The steamer
Alameda, from San t'nnciseo Marob
9, arrived here today. She brings news
of disturbances in Samoa which
threaten serious consfqneucss unless
soon checked, The trouble, which has
assumed the proportions of a war, grew
not of the action of the new Supreme
Judge lie in Imposing lines upon
some of the minor chiefs for
disorderly conduct and Imprisoning
and compelling them to work on th
public roads in default of payment of
(Define. The followers of the chiefs
arose In armed rebellion against these
Indignities to their lenders, m l de
manded their immediate release. Am
attempt was made to disarm the re
bellion natives, but they stoutly de
nfed the rii;bt of Europeans or othr
foreigners to interfere in their aft'iirs,
aud refused to lay clown their arms.
The chiefs, who had been obliged to
do degrading w.iric, eagerly led their
willing followers toward the aobttve
inent of revenue for their degradation,
aud K;;ig Malietda finally sent a body
of troops to nttsck the rebels
Tne government tro ips ha I several
encounters with tha rebellion"
hands, iu which thirty rebels were
billed and about fifty wottn.de I
and a number made prisoners.
The government troops also suffered to
tbe extent of a dozen or more killed
and wounded. Iu the series of tisfhts
the government won. The kinit's troops
celebrated their victory by mutilating
hud of their prisoners in a most hor
rible manner. The next day they
treated another poor wretch in the sain
way, and they finally made an uupro
vokod attack upon o io of the defence
less villages of their late adversaries,
With nothing to offposs them, they
Indulged in most frightful atrociti-'s.
Houses wore burned, women were out
raged and then killed, and the dead
bo lies beheaded end finally cut into
small pieces; and the maddened sol
diers of the king desisted only wh-n
there was iiotning left to destroy aud
nobody left to kill.
Meanwhile the other cuinfs rebelled
against the action of Jodge de and the
support given to him by King Mahetoa,
and the cry of "Death to foreigners!'
spread throughout the islands. The
United States, British and Cerman
councils are making every effort to
quell the distnrbance and restore the
normal condition of things, hut th"
hopelessness of their tnsk, unaided, is
apparent, an i the arrival of a warship
is awaited with anxiety.
