News not unexpected was received
at Apia on Saturday, March It), that
an outbreak had taken place be
tween the advanced division of the
Aanaor rebel party and the p oplo
of 1'a.T.aleaga, Savaii, who were
understood to be supporter of the
Government. Ily the excitement
produced in ollicial circles the Her
ald judges that the Government had
not expected a collision so oon.
While n "fouo," or council, was be
ing held over the new by the Presi
dent of the Municipality of Apia,
Chief Justice lde and the Consuls,
confirmation of the news arrived in
the ghastly form of two men wound
ed in a terrible manner. An hour
Inter another party arrived, bringing
with them the head of a chief of
h'asitoo named Tuifaga, who had
Ih'kii slain by the (ioveriimnt party.

Accounts differ as to the begin
ning of the light, but the following
is one of them Ivirlv in tho morn
ing of that day Ke, a chief of Vaifa,
in Iva, accompanied by two little
boys, went into the hush at the rear
of Saleiiuoa, in the vicinity of which
the people of Savaii (loyal) had
formed a camp. Their oliject was
to gather loaves and firewood for
the purpoi of preparing their food.
While engaged in so doing they
were suddenly tired upon by some
Aana men who were concealed in
the bush, and ICo was killed, and
both boys slightly wounded. The
lattor managed to escape, but He,
us tiaual in Samoau warfare, was im
mediately deprived of his head. Al
most immediately a narty of Faas.v
leleaga men who had heard the fir
ing rushed into the bush, and great
ly to their surprise stumbled upon a
fort occupied by Aana people,
A sharp Hkirmish took place, dur
ing which another Savaii man was
killed and decapitated, and three
others wounded. Six of the Aana
men were wounded. Tuifaiga n
wounded slightly in the leg and
brought into tho Savaii cnuip when,
after a fono being held, it was de
cided that his head should be taken
oir, and this was done at once.
Oho of the wounded Aana men,
Taua'au, has since died. Doth parties
'thou retired, one body of fourteen
men buing despatched to Apia with
their two badly wounded comrades
of tho Government party, whilst au
nt hor largo crowd came away with
tho head of Tuifaiga, with a viow of
presenting it to the King.
N'o preparations wore made to re
ceive tho wounded at Apia, and they
woro taken to a native house, whoro
they received surgical attention.
ICov. Messrs. Clarke and Goward,
with Mrs. Clarke and Miss Large, of
the Loudon Mission Society, speedi
ly found better quartern for the
wounded and gave thorn nursing.

arty. No lighting occurred on tho
ollowing day (Sunday), and the
principal topic of discussion was
what action tho people of Atua
would tako. It was conlidently as
serted that they would arrive to
support the Government, lint very
fow people holiowid in this story,
and on tho following day when it
was learned that the people of Atua
wished tho.o of Tuamasaga to pro
coed to Anna and leave them (Alua)
lo guard tho Municipal district, sus
picions of treachery were aroused,
and tho Consuls hold a meeting
with tho President and Chief Jus

clamation was issued:

l-citement was strong at Apia on
Tuesday, as n decisive battle was ex
pected Sympathizers with the Gov-
, eminent were alarmed lest the torn
porary victories of the rebels would
bring them considerable acce.'.sions.
The Aana people hud lost two killed
and four wounded, whilst tho at
tacking party had (o report six
killed ami a largo number wounded.
That uiglit their were eleven
wounded in tho Mission hospital at
Apia, and it was said two boats had
gone to Savaii with wounded, to be
treated by Dr. Davis. L'p to that
time six people had lost their heads,
one of tho rebels ami and live of the
Savaii people. There was no light -

ald is inclined to discnetil llinslori-

It is asserted by the Herald that.
only two or three days before the
fnt fight, tho Anna parly received a
I largo number of cartridges, having
spent upon them a sum of $H;(M.
J money tlmy had received on account
of claims before the Laud Comtuis-

Aana people, the lighting would not
have taken place, as their supply
was completely exhausted. It urge's

in which the Government troops
', were victorious. This had happen

from Atua, saying that the people

An article in tin H.iiiio.nn Times
occasioned considerable amn.eiueut.
It criticised the abruptness with
which the ordinance against behead
tug the lalleu in battle had been
promulgated. The custom was an
ancient one, which could not be
suddenly abandoned, and it was a
convenient means for a warrior to
prove his valor to his chief. His
word might not go, don't you see,
that ho was in tho bait oat till, but
with tho head of his victim in hand

from the fact that tho land claimed

"Yes, tho matter is still n topic of

While one portion of the ,
laborers are tilling the soil
others are repairing old fences
or building new ones. In either
case the Jones Locked Fence ,
materials are the most econo
mical to use. One stay and
five washers cost a trille under
eight cents and they take the
place of a post which costs all
the way from thirteen to nine
teen cents and are double the
trouble and not half so service
able as the Jones method. If
you are repairing an old fence
we will sell you the stas and ;
washers, or if you want to
build an entire new fence you I
can get better rates on Plain ,

one in which the wires do not
