duty as commandant of the Hono- S
lulu naval station. In that capacity g
Commander Merry will have sj
charge of all the Improvements to fc
be made In the naval reservation at k
this port some months ago taken 0
over by the United States Govern- g
ment. He will supervise the ex- rj
ecutlon of the contract for dredging ft
out new dock and constructing Q
wharves held by the California K
Construction Company. L
Commander Merry was met by a g
BULLETIN reporter at the Hawaiian g
Hotel this morning. He was found S
to be a quiet and pleaar,t veteran, fe
K but had nothing to Impart about fe
Sthe harbor works beyond what Is B
K already known here. The con- g
S tractors would probably begin opet- g
S atlons about the first of July. They g
a are building a shovel dredge for the S
K work. Probably some blasting will ft
C have to be done. The commandant K

was in tho witness chair. He was
questioned as to whether lie con

he did so. Neither had he con
sulted with Mr. Croker regarding
the removal of city oUiues from
tho New York insnianoe building
to the new syndicate buildiug on
Park Row. Ho was very well
satisfied with the otUoiency shown
in tlio various city omoes. Mr.
Van Wi ck said that be had not
consulted with Mr. Croker nt
Lmkewood in December, 1837, on
tho subject of the selection of
heads of tho departments, but he
had a "ruuning conversation on
that subject with John F. Carroll"
who is close to Mr. Croker in po
litical matters. Rovorting to the
subject of tho quarters provided
for tho deptrtueut officials, Coun
sel Moss nskel tho mayor if he
did not know that the buildiuu to
which tho hoilth department had
been assigned was uot tire-proof.

warmly. ''I cannot bo called to

Mr. Moss counsel for tho commit
tee asked the Mayor a qu-'ttou
which implied that the Mnyor was
financially interoted iu piol

running here in vinlAtmu of the
law. Mr. Van Wyck iudimumtly
denied the imputation and chal

the latter would give the Mayor
was to tell the Mayor to waitadiy

Washifgton, May 15. Secreta
ry .Long toilay made pnnlio fo
much of a recent lettor from Ad-
miial Kau'z on the Satuonn affair
as touched tho killiug of n num
ber ot American sailors by Mata
afa adherents near Apia ou the
1st of April.
The report is an elaboration of
the description ot the affair which
was cabled nt thn lime fiom Auck
land. No mention is made at any
point of the reported participation
in tho affray of the Germ in, Huf
nnm, the manager of the planta
tion where the fiulit occurred. It
is shown that the failure of tho
Colt cun to work proporly was iu
a lare measure the causx ot the
American and British defeat.
Admiral Kautz says the expedi
tion was projected by Captain
Sturdeoof tho Porpoise. For sev
oral nights preceding, the sentries
had( brcn fired upon by tho
natives, and it became necessary
to drive them away. Knutz Bays
that it was tho opinion of all tho
officers who had tho matter in
chargo that thn forco whs amplo
to do thn woik withont rii-k, espe-
cially ns it was to mnvo nut along
tho beach nnd return the same
way, under the protootion of the
gunB of HerMsjesty's ship lloynl
ist. It is safe to nay, says the
Admiral, that after Lieutenants
Fieeman nnd Lansdale had con
ferred together they did what they
ueeinod beat under the circuui-
stancs and tho disaster that fol
lowed onuld not be foreseen.
Admiral Kautz uppeuds tho re
ports of the turviviug oll'icers of
the expedition, which ero trans
mitted by Osptain White of the
Philadelphia. In his letter of
transmittal the captain commends
in tho stiougpit terms the work
