Exciting Hews by tlio "Zfialandia".
Mataafa Proclaimed King i
A ii'iv:ilL letter from Apin, dated
September lOtli, contains the follow
ing interesting uowi:
The natives in Kulaln went on the
wurpntli, bul being entreated by
their Chief, who was held as n orl
of prisoner on Mulinuu they started
homo again. Thirty of them how
ever, would not go,' but encamped
on the mountnins back of Apia.
Brandeis with SCO men suprised
these bcfqrc daylight one morning,
when a fight ensued in which three
Safata people were killed and
two Tamaseso men killed and one
wounded. The whole district of
Safata then rose in open revolt,
crossed the mountains to Kaleula,
near MeArthur's plantation, and
there erected a fort. ISrnudeis
thereon summoned .ill Samoa to
help him punish them, but Samoa
did not respond as he would have
liked. Tuanmsaga joined the pa
triuls at once, then town after town
of other districts, while Uraiideis'
force steadily diminished. Savaii
people sent him word that they were
too busy making copra to attend to
As usual the German Consul at
tempted to come to the rescue. The
"Adler" took on board 200 men and
towing six boats started out to burn
Manono. Arriving there they threw
in 10 shells amongst the women and
children (the men being at Falc
ida), but no one was hurt. The
boats were then Idled with natives
and sailors, who pulled ashore to
burn the houses and cat the. pigs,
this being their mode of warfare.
They had" just lime to set fire to the
large canoe, when some one started
an alarm that the Manono men" were
coming and they took to their boats
and lied, one boat load however go-
ing off to Savaii and away from the
war, and one to Falcula to join the
patriots. Thus ended the, expedi
tion. Mataafa has been chosen
king and has seven or eight thou
sand men encamped all around the
town, hemming Tamascse's men now
reduced to less than 200. Mataafa
is now styled Malietoa Toa. Ta
masescs men are behind breast
works on Mulinuu, and GO German
marines arc there, principally to
keep them from running away. One
of the men engaged in the Manono
cxped tion has been caught and ex
ecuted. Malietoa now proposes to
move on the works at Mulinuu. Ta
masese wants to abdicate but is re
strained by Brandeis and ' Becker,
v who arc litting up a licet that
will rescue him. We all hope to
sec his head on a pole. We all wish
Malietoa success. His people arc
to occupy Apia in spite of the "Ad
ler." A postscript added Sept. Mth,
gives the following :
Part of the forces under Malietoa
marched through here on the 12th
inst. and attacked Brandcis-Tama-sese
people who had fortified Ma
tautu. Balls from this fort came
Hying through the town which re
peatedly stuick houses. Hamilton,
Buges and the Pilot Station were rid
dled. Uapt. Hisset was suot tnrougn
the head and killed while standing
', on the steps of the late Hawaiian
Consulate. Malictoa's forces cap
tured all the outworks before dark,
and during the night the Brandeis
crew escaped, being followed so
quickly', that many dropped their
guns as they fled. More would
have escaped had Malictoa's people
brought their boats. Five Malietoa
men were killed and 15 wounded,
and 15 Tamnsese men bit the dust.
As the wounded were put in the
boats as fast as tbey were hit it is
not yet known how'many were hurt.
' They all ran off to Solo Solo and
arc now suing for peace. Tamascsc
is on Malinuu, a guard of marines
from the "Adler" (fil) have thrown
up formications across the point and
are protecting him. Wc all hope
now that the U. S. Government will
extend at least a protectorate over
""".Samoa until it is possible to get laws
in working order. Malietoa (Mata
afa) is a very good man and has the
confidence of every one.
Another letter dated Apia Sept.
10th says: The followers of the late
King Malietoa and many of the pre
sent so-called King Tamnsese arc
in open rebellion to the number of
nearly 4,000 within six miles of
Apia. The Germans have landed
sailors in rcalitv to protect Tama-
sese. The inhabitants of the other
islands nro all joining in the rebel
lion. Tamascse's peoplo have re
moved a house from the property of
an American and it is rumored that
the Captain of the U. S. S. Adams
bus given Brander tlio Prime Min
ister to understand that it must bo

within twenty-four hours.

On Monday, Sept. 17th, all tho
Government schools resumed work
alter the long summer vacation.
There has not been so marked an
increase in tlio attendance of pupils
at these schools as was pi edified or
looked lor, when it was known that
the law abolishing tuition fees had
hecome operative. Some of the
teachers, however, expect ami are
making preparations for a consider
able increase within a month or six
weuks, as it generally takes that
long after a vacation to find out
where the chiidien arc nnd to gel
The schools in Waihcc and Wai
luku arc in a most prosperous con
dition. The latter is under the able
superintendence of Mr. II. K.IIitch-
cock, assisted by Miss Nancy
Daniels and Miss Moore. The form
er is under the efficient manage
ment f Mr. II. Z. Austin, assisted
by Mrs. Austin and Miss Ellen
Daniels. This school has been
brought to a degree of proficiency
excelled by none on the island, and
equalled by but few. When Mr.
Austin took charge, the school was
ata very low ebb, both as regards the
system of teaching and the pcrsonel
of the scholars. With this material
and under most unfavorable circum
stances Mr. Austin has, in a few
short months, brought it up to a
standard second to none on the
island, and in doing so has not only
gained the confidence of parents
but earned for himself the reputa
tion of a thorough and painstaking
instructor of youth.
On Tuesday evening, Sept. 18th,
the social event of tho month, "a
literary," took place at the resi
dence of the Rev. Mr. Gulick, at
Makawao. Although the weather
was not propitious during the first
of the evening, it eventually cleared
up and old Lunar illuminated the
scene with a soft effulgence indes
cribably grand. A large concourse
of people from all parts of that side
of the island gathered together,
some to take part in the exercises
and others to listen and enjoy.
These socials or Iiteraries as they
are called here, have bacomo very
popular and are held once a month
at the house of some resident of tho
district. The exercises consist of
music, instrumental and vocal, es
says, recitations, readings, etc., and
arc extremely enjoyable and in
structive, as well as conducive to
sociability among the foreign ' resi
dents. These people arc of a neces
sity separated from each other,
often by long distances, yet these
Iiteraries usually bring them all
together, where for the nonce the
cares of business and toil are left be
hind, and each vies with the other
to make the occasion one of pleas
ure and intellectual profit; and
judging from the popularity of these
gatherings their endeavors have not
been in vain.
Moat of the plantations have fin
ished planting, a few more will fin
ish this week, and all will be done
during this month. The prospect
for a large crop of sugar next year
is most favorable. A large acreage
is under cultivation and a good
yield is expected.
Tho weather generally is remark
ably line and pleasant, and has a
salubrious effect on the inhabitants,
for since the adjournment of the
Legislature, nothing short of an
earthquake or panic would have dis
turbed their perfect equanimity,
even the briber' cases have failed
to cause anything more than a
monetary stir among them, and then
to pass out of their minds forever.
The roads throughout this part of
the island arc in excellent condition,
and show careful and faithful work
by the Koad Board. The road mo
ney is all expended where it be
longs, and the greatest good to the
greatest number "seems to be the
motto of the Hoard. A person can
drive in a carraiite from Waihcc to
Makawao, (22 or 23 miles) without
experiencing any inconvenience
other than obtains on any long road
in other countries. This speaks
well for tho Board, and shows that
the experiment of supplanting Uoad
Supervisors with a competent and
honest lioad Board has proven more
than successful in this part of the
country. The most chronic growler
has to admit that the work of the
Board is well and faithfully done,
and at a less expense than mider
the old system.
The brig J. D. Spreekcls arrived

coursed excellent music for ovor an

through Mr. Macfarlane to this
effect. Hon. 11. P. Baldwin is
