On tho evening of July 14th,
there assornbled atMulinuu, tho
ancient scat of tho Samoan Gov
ernment, 418 Cbiois and High
Chiefs of Samoa, (250 of the Ma
taafa faction and 103 of tho Malie
toa party), when the changes in
the proposed amendments to the
original lierlin Treaty were laid
beforo them by the Joint Higu
OomrciBsion, and by them unani
mously adopted, aud 13 High
Chiefs from each party wero se
lected to ratify and adopt buoh
aiceudmouts by affixing their
names io the official document.
It was a remarkable speotaole.
Seated on tho green sward under
the waving cocoa palms of Muli
nuu, several hundred savacos lov
ingly embraced and' rubbed noses,
who, a month ago were oager for
each other's heads.
The OommiHsioners wore undor
psoort of a guard of honor from
eaoh of tho war ships of the Three
Powers in the harbor; neither Ma
taafa nor Malietoa were present,
tho former being ill with a fever
and tho lattor did not caro to ap
pear unless his rival was on band,
but both wore well represented by
their Ohiofs. Never einco tho days
of Queen Salamasone, the first
Queen of tho Samoan Islands, has
there been assembled sucu a vast
display of native nobility.
If the Samoana are left to them
selves wo think these relations
will last, for wo beliovo that the
natives wero sincore in their ex
pfosBions when thoy said they
'kuow that tho Commission had
come to Samoa for the good of Sa
moa.' But this would be in direot
opposition to the sentiments of the
white people on tho beaob, who,
for pecuniary purposes, desire to
compol tho Throe Powers to koop
their war ships in the harbor nil
tho yeir round. This moans to
them many dollars in good money.
Since January, 189.), the cash es
timittod to have been paid to the
crews of the various ships in port
is $30,000. The best part of this
has been spent in Apia. Ono store,
keeper told mo that it was worth
just $1600 oach month to
him for eaoh ship in tho
harbor. Tho natives also reap
a harvest from tho ships by sell
ing curios and fruit, and thoy of

ships remain in port. Ono of tho
principal traders on tho beach has

Nearly One quarter of a Million
Dalian In Claim.
The claims filed with tho Com
raissioners by tho residents of
Samoa amount to about $4-10,000.
Of this amount 825,000 is asked
by tue native population. . . .
Tho principal claims for indem
nity aro thoso of tho French
Catholio Marist Mission, which
asks $22,000, and tho Gorman firm
which claims $19,000. These two
claims aro largely tho result oT
looting done by tho native soldiers
at Mulinuu while undor tho in.
structions of tho English officers.
During the war nnd during the
armistice the soldiers wore penned
in at Malinuu, and wore short of
rations. The English officrB
