give up the war:
Magiaoi, April 22, 1889.
L. A. KiMiiERLT, Admiral of Ame
rican Fleet Your Exeellenoy :
Preamble Expressing thanks for
the kindness of the Admiral in issu
On this account this letter is writ
ten. I and the chiefs and the coun
cillors of my government at Magi
agi having consulted together to
day, the 22d April, 1889. We are
highly pleased with the proclama
tion. The kindness of tho Govern
ment of the United States is beyond
comparison, and I am now able to
understand it. To-day my desire
for war with otir kindred at Luatua
nuu is finished. I declare that the
war which was carried on between
this part of Samoa and that part of
Samoa is at an end, because I earn
estly desiie that Samoa should find a
state of prosperity (that the hatchet
should bo buried), and to gt"e over
to you the office of umpiie between
us both, and let U9 nil work to the
same purpose. Besides, I declare
that Samoa would escape danger if
the United States of America alone
were to protect and give support to
it and be the sole master of all Sa
moa without the interference of any
other power. For in years gone by
wo have been endeavoring to form a
strong government ou the basis of
protection by the three powers, in
consequence of which Samoa has
been constantly torn to pieces and
many lives lost and the country has
been brought down to a very low
condition. On this account we are
sure that the recuircnceof the triple
system would be uscloss. If now
one power took charge of Samoa
and continued to do so forever, then
Samoa would, for the first time, en
joy standing prosperity. I place
every hope in 3rour good wishes to
ward Samoa, and hope you will not
diaw back from them. May you
live. Your brother (in the Lord),
The King of Samoa.
Admiral Kimbeily leplied to Ma
taafa's letter as follows:
Apia, Samoa, April 24, 1889.
To His Royal Jliglmess Malietoa
Mataafa Your Royal Highness :
Your letter dated Apiil 22, 1889, I
leceivecL. yesterday and read with
great cafe and interest. The pre
vious day I also received one from
Tamasese. In it he says nothing of
peace except on conditions of sub
mission. His heart has not yet been
penetrated by the evils of war nor
softened by tho sufferings of the
people. Your noble sentiments for
the welfare of Samoa as shown in
your sincere expressions for peace
and by the council of1 your chiefs
and rulers prove that you and they
have the true feehags that govern
menwho love their countiy better
than themselves. Such men are
those who bear the burdens and res
ponsibility of the turbulent times
that surge over the land as the
ocean waves surge against the Bhore.
They are the strong men against
whom the weak: lean as the vine
against the tree. May your services
and wisdom long be spared to Sa
moa. The United States is now, as
far as I know, in convention with
the other two treaty powers, and I
can assure you that as far as sho is
able, her efforts will be directed to
obtain those points that will advance
and promote the interests of all
Samoa in every respect, mid the evils
that have heretofore afflicted the
country will, if not extinguished, at
least bo diminished. Have, there
fore, geod heart. Tho day of rest
and peace and prosperity a not so
far away, but that its coming, like
the dawn, oan bo seen before the
rising of the sun. A copy of your
letter will be forwarded by the first
mail to Washington for the inform
ation of the Government. Trusting
that you may have good health and
that you long may bo spared. I re
main very lcspectfully your obedient

To us through the centuries has
come the knowledge that the qunk
ings and tremblings of tho earth
were always considered of tho
highest import by tho nations of
old, who considered such a circum
stance marked some event or epoch
in their history. In sacred history
we learn how, mid the llghtning'e
flash and with the dire accompani
ment of a rocking earth, tho Chris
tian's God gave command to his
chosen people. On Calvary's
heights, too, when the culminating
point of a life of self abnegation
and sacrifice was reached, we know
that a weird gloom and darkness
enshrouded the earth as it trembled
and rent asunder.

An answer to such inquiry may

satisfying the coldly critical, will
carry conviction to the hearts of
thousands who, stiangc to relate,
aro not numbered as citizens of the
On Saturday afternoon there
landed on American soil a young
princess. Daughter of a royal
house, she is more: she comes from
a long line of priests and priestesses
who from time immemoiial have
ofllciated as the mouthpieces of the
people iu interceding in praying
and propitiating the goddess Pele,
tne genius or tne Hawaiian group
of islands. Deep in the volcanic
depths of Kilauea, Pele has her
home, and on the crater edge has
more than one of dainty Princess
Kaiulani's race stood and talked
with the mighty goddess. So when
the earth trembles and rocks Pele
talks to her people words of warn
ing, of love or of death.
What bearing has this on "she of
the flashing eyes," slumbering
peacefully in prosaic San Francisco?
Let the oracle of the southern sea
"Child of uiy heart, think not
that distance can remove you from
me. From Kilauea's depths my
arms stretch out to guard and
avenge. Ou the first day of your so
journ mid an alien race I send
greeting to the daughter of thy mo
ther. The years are yet young
since the Princess Like-Like thy
mother, little one lay sick unto
death. I was angry but not with
her; Kilauea flamed, and burning
lava rolled down the mountain side
and desolation threatened all the
land. Kalakaua the royal; Kala
kaua, the Kahuna beyond compare,
had anguish of heart and his peo
ple mourned at Pele's vengeance.
Then spake thy mother: 'Pele calls
for some enc who shall appease her
anger. Who so fit as I? Sick unto
death, I can save my house and my
people by giving myself up to the
queen of the fiery Kilauea. My
husband and my child Yesl Yes!
I love them, but duty calls.' En
ttcatieswere in vain; thy mother
refused the food and drink of her
loved ones to come to me. Day by
day she got weaker and weaker till
I claimed her as my own, while the
words were on her lips : 'Helo mai
ana wau. Pele! hele mai ana waul'
(I am coming, Pele! I am coming).
True to myself, did I not accept that
life, and before the sun went down
did not Kilauea's, fire die out and
peace fill the heart of all thy kin
dred? So with thee, child of my
heart, shall I watch over and guard
thoe, but think not to leave the do
main of thy goddess queen ; for my
arms are long to guard and to
avenge. Andsoasyoutra.ee your
course in, far-off. lauds, amid the
bleak mountains of thy father's
homq, rest thy eyes upon the sym
bol of flro ever carried before thee
and forget not the homo of thy
mother. And so when Pele talks
and the ground quivers under thy
feet, while tho stranger fears, do
thou know that that Pele and thy
mother watch o'er to gu,ard, thee.
Pele has spoken."
