He said although (iermauy^may have larger intereeta In .Sniuoa than^the I'nited States. It had no letter or in-r^Information from that country than (he^I sited States. In legard to the statement^that Germany would violate notn-aty iu^acquiring ascendency In Samoa, liayard^i-slied attention to the declaration cone ru^^ing the boundaries of tierman and KukIUd^donniiious in the west Pacific Ocean,^signed at JU rliu April rt. lM8o, by Coonl^Htsuiarck Bfj the part ai Osb many and Sir^Kdward Mallet on the part of Great^Britain. Bayard aaid he thought this^agrtHMiient precluded German sequlsttelXM^in Samoa, and that she was bound to res^^pect the rights of that Island.
AssistantSecretary Hives read the dis-^patehes carefully this afternoon and re^^marked with a smile, ^They eeem to In*^hurling defiance in our teeth, don't they
Whenasked If he had not further com^^ment to make on the subject, he said he^bad not. He subsequently intimated, how*^ever, that there were important dinVrenrea^in the statements made by the North tier^man Gazette and the prenident's uies^age^B)eBBBjBfSBSc^lbs l'^^h instant In regard to^the treaty rights of German), fireat llritau^aud the Tinted States on the Samoan mat^*vT. He deellned to oolnt out the diacrep-^ancies hut repsaSfaj that the position of the^goreraflM nl on the question as stated by^the Gazette ditfertHl from our position as^detint d by the preaident. Kives wimid nay^no more nut it is understood that he re^ft rred particularly to that passage in the^inesaage where the president saya: ^Acting^within the reatraints which our constitu^^tion and laws have placed upon (he execu^^tive power, 1 have insisted that the auto^^nomy and Independence ^^t Sa^^moa shouId !^^ s^^rupulously preserved,^according to the treatl*'^ ma^te Samoa^by the powers natoe-d^tiermany, t treat^llritain and the 1'iilted States^and their^agreements and understanding with each^other. 1 have protested sgainst every act^apparently lending in an opposite direction^and durlug the existence of internal dis^^turbance une oi more veasels of war have^been kept In Samoan waU-rs to protect^American citizens and property.
SecretaryWbitnej declined lo be inter^^viewed. The policy of the government, he^said, was fixed and an^ thing which might^be said in regard to It must come from the^state department. The navy department^bad no jurisdiction over matters except uf^an executive character.
SenatorKdmunds, when made acquaint^^ed with the tenor of the utterances ol the^Herlin Gazette, said: ^1 suppose if lila-^inarck was to express his opinion on any^subject be feels at perfect liberty to do so;^but 1 alao suppose that the expression M^such opinion will not serve to deter the^American people from carrying out any^policy tbev may adopt as desirable or nec^essary. The Samoan lsfands are on the^highway of commerce across the^Pacific and are of great importance^with relation to the development^of trade via the projected canals across the^Isthmus of Panama and acrofta Nicaragua.^To the power whose ships are sent on long^cruises the establishment of coaling ala^tions is noceeeary aud the location of BSM^on the central island of the Samoan group,^as provided for in the i^ropo*ed amend Basal^to the diplomatic and consular appropria^^tions bill, reported by the committee on^foreign relations, is looked upon as one of^great impoitance to us.
Suchmembers of the house committee on^foreign affairs as could be seen to-night^were adverse to discussing freely the pres-^at state of our relation with Samoa, in^view of the fact that the subject is now^MoffS (he committee, and tbsf are expect^^ed to communicate their views formally to^the house in the shape of reporti iteure-^seutati\e Kussell, Massachusetts, when^told of the p(^sitiou taken by the North^tierman Ga/.ette, remarked that ^If matters^should reach an extreme point, 1 dou'l be^^lieve we are going to be eaten up by any^Kuropean power.*'
Mr.lint, a leading republican member^of the committee, was inclined to take a^peaceful view of the situation. ^It was^evident,^ said he, ^that while cautiously^written the article breathed a hostile spirit,^incited, no doubt, by the exaggerated ac^counts whicn had reached Heriin of the^fet Hug in America. The fact is, we are^suffering for a lack of information. The^president, isc his term, 'relegated' the^Btftfl euhject to inraf issf, but, union ii^nately, tailed to transmit a copy of the^agreement between the rcpreaciitativ. s ^l^the United Slates, hug land and G-i^oianp. Just what that agreement^is, or how it binds the Tinted Mates no^body in congress knows; but it must be s^very bad agreement under which the pre.^cut state ol affairs in Samoa has resulted.^So long as the country know n Uiat the wise^men of both political parties in the senate^have been fullyl adviaed aud taken in the^president s conlidence, the people rest In^ease, liut they are not disposed to trust^too much to the ability of oue man,particu^^larly the one w ho has been so lamentably^unlucky in tbeexerciae of his judgment. '^Touching the possibility of serious trouble^resulting from the Samoan affair, he was^disposed to make light of It
.senatorMorgan, of Alabama, said: 1 he^administration has bee a active in aasertiflg^our rights in tamoa and cougreas has^Shown a strong determination to support^the administration In any action looking to^the preservation of the independence of the^islands and the proi^*ction of America.^Interests there. 1 think the steps already^taken will prove adequate, and I am per^fectiy satisfied that whatever rights we^have will be faithfully protected. W^have material interests In these islands^and ahall tolerate no act on th^ part of an^^other power which will interfere with our^free commerce with them.
SenatorKrye was seen. ^I think,^ said^he, ^that our treaty rights are such In^Samoa that we cannot permit the inde^^pendence of Samoa to be taken^away from her. If the Oeruiau^government can put a governor who^is nothing but a tool of her own Into power^in Samoa, we can compel them at oucm^to give notice to the United stales of th^termination of all our treaties. 1 think the^treaties on a whole taken together do^guarantee the independence of Samoa.^^' ho ^ou regard the situation as threaten
Ithink the idea of war is as absurd aa It^poeaibJy can be.
SenatorSherman, from the committee^on foreign relations, yesterday n ported^the following am^ndm nts Ii the^diplomatic and consular approprl^at ion bill: For the extcu'lou of^ohligations and the protection of the in^^terests of the Tutted States existing under^the treaty betw^^en the Tutted states and^the Samoan Islands, ^5ou,o*^, or so much^thereof as may be n^ ceasary to be expend^^ed, under direction of th** president. Thl^^appropriation Is to be immediately avail^^able. Kor the survey. Improvement and^occupation of the bav and harbor of f -^gopago, Samoa, and for th^ construction^of necessary wharves and buildings for^such occupation and for a coaling station^therein under directum of the president,^f PI) otJO.
senatorSherman made no statement of^the views of the committee upon the pro^^posed amendments at the time they were^offered, but it is learned that the commit^^tee were of opinion that under the terms of
thetreaty with Samoa It Is the duty of the^t'ntted States to Intervene by force. If nec^^essary, to protect the autonomy of the^islands against the aggressions of any^power.
Thenthe amendment to the consular^hill means that the president Is to send a^fleet of war ships or any other force he^may deem necessary to protect flu* Samoan^government, aud to relieve the people from^the danger of warwas asked one of the^member* of the committee.
ThatIs exactly whst they mean,^ was^the answer. 1
Itis understood that the committee were^unanimous in tht report of the amend^ments.
SecretaryWhitney has written a letter to^the chairman of the house naval commit^BBtj asking that the department be au^tborlzed to purchase the necessary land for^a coaling station in the harbor of Pago^pago, Samoa, and to erect a wharf there,^build a lighter, etc. He suggested au ap^propriatton of SKM.iXlu for the purpose.
ChairmanHerbert of the house commit^^tee on naval affairs, has acknowledged Sec^^retary Whitney's letter suggesting an ap^^propriation for a coaling station at Pago^pago, Samoa, sa) ing the proper representa^^tions will be made to the house when the^matter comes before It In accordance^with the suggestions of Individual members^of the committee, he requests there may^he transmitted to It any recent reports^from the officers of vessels stationed at the^Samoan islands, showing the condition of^thlng^^, and the request of the department^for the announcement of a definite policy,^if part of the records of the department^The commtitee will be glad to know if any^further enlargement of the appropriation^of the depaitment should be made in view^of existing conditions.
Thesecretary of state to-day received a^cable message from Acting Consul lilack^lock at Apia, Samoa, by way of Auckland,^New Zealand, saying a large tire recently^occurred on the island and that the tierman^consulate was among the buildings de-^Mroved. He adds the fire waa undoubtedly^accidental. No other details are given.
Hkhi.in,Jan. 24.-The Cologne Gazette^says it has reliable authority for the state^^ment that Germany aud Kngland are nego^^tiating on the samoan question in a spirit^of mutual understanding, and ail reports^to the contrary are incorrect
TheieVth tierman Gazette, Bismarck's^organ, denies the existence of any treatv,^precluding any Kuropean power from ac-^(iiiirlng aacendanev in Samoa; also denies^that Kngland and the Tinted Stales are^agreed that the proceedings of the German^agent In Samoa was contrary to the stipu^latlons of the treaties or opposed to diplo^^matic etiquette, and that these powers have^officially iiotn'U:* the German government^accordingly. The treaties, the Gazette^further says, provide that Samoa shall con^ceil^ to every t n aty power equal rights^with either ot the others, but Do it. ity re^^garding the neutrality or the Indt sentence^of Samoa exists between Germauy and the^('tilled States.
LonOBIiJsn. 84.^A dispatch from Syd^ney, N. s. \V., says the German gunboat^Olga has taken Malietoa, ex king of Samoa,^to Marshall Islands.
Thearticle In the North German Gazette^relative to the treaties regarding Samoa,^c aused a commotion in official circles here.^By some it Is regarded as s deliberate de^^fiance to the Washington government.
Commentingon the Samoa affair the^News says: ^It Is extremely important^that Kngland should act cordially with^America, it is therefore more to be re^^gretted that we have no minister at Wash^^ington. It hord Salisbury would be a lit^^tle less humble to Germany and a little^more civil to America, It would be better^for all concerned.*'

ATrusted Indianapolis Employe of^the Connecticut Life Insurance^Company a Defaulter.
NEARA HALF MILLION.
TheCompany Thought It Was Dealing^Leniently With Hard-Pushed^Creditors While Moore^Was Robbing It.
Washimiiojs, Jan. 24.^The house com^mittee on foreign affairs to-day, with only^one dissenting vote (that of Kussell, M^sachusetta. who has opposed the resolution^from the first), ordered a favorable report^made upon the senate resolution relative^to Kuropean participation iu the constru*^tlon of the Panama canal. There was but^little discussion, the matter having beeu^fully gone into at two preceding sessions.^The matter Is not privileged for considers^tion under the rules of the house, but an^effort will be made to have It so.
Asun committee, consisting of Morrow^McTreary and Kussell, was also appointed^to consider Samoan affairs, which come^before the committee lu the shape of cor^respondence from the state department and^lu resolutlons Introduced at the last seaslon^d'Tlaring In favor of Interference oy on^government to check QctamBB ttggieaslons^at the Samoan Islands.
Hahtkohp,Conn., Jan. 24.^ Col. Jacob^Green, president of the Connecticut Mutual^Ife Insurance Company, made the follow^ig announcement this evening: ^It has^ust i^^ii discovered that the ffnsncisl cor^^respondent of this company at Indianapo^^lis, after sixteen years of service, is a de^faulter. For the past week his accounts^ave been under Investigation and the de^^falcation has been found. Tne extreme^mount involved Is about $600,UUO. He has^restored to the company property which^may reduce the actual loss to $4U),u^t. The^mount of loss will not lu any degree at^feet the compati)'* solvency, nor even in^(ertere with its regular dividends. The^gent is Joseph A. Moore, a leading etttaea^F Indianapolis,alMiut 46 years old, who has^hitherto occupied a nigh position In^hat community. He has been speculating^and bis steal consists of three parts the^irincipal of loans paid to him to borrow-^rs, to be remitted to the company; Inter^^est paid to him for the same purpose, and^rents collected by htm on real .Mate in his^care. The theft of principal and interest^waa concealed In part by more or less fre^^miti psyments of Interest on loans. In^response to frequent inquiries by the com^pany he represented these bor^rowers as being In financial dlfll-^ulty, anxious to struggle on and^^ay their debt and save their property^torn foreclosure and confident they could^do it with leniency on the company s part,^and promising they would make payments^whenever possible. He continually repre-^sented himself ss csrefully wstchlng these^people ami doing what he could to sld^them to worry through. These thefts^began at a time when there was s great^deal of financial dlstrcsa iu Indianapolis,^nd when the company not only did what^It could to aid borrowers In saving the t^properly, but was compelled to take In a^rest deal of real estate; and this Htate of^epresslon came later In Indianapolis^than elsewhere snd continued a long time,^so that Moore's statements were entirely^consistent with and apparently a^ontfnuance of previous history. Many^cases thus In arrear were actually^brought out successfully, thus apparently^further confirming bis representations.^Meantime he was constantly remitting for^lorrowers very large sums of money In a^correct mannei. Ills position and reputa-^on and his energy and ability afi made it^apparently Impossible that he could tadray^so great a trust. This is the only loss^Uirough a financial correspondent the com^^any has ever experienced in the forty-^hree years of Its career.
Indianatoms, Jan. 24.^Great aston^ishment was created in this city tonight,^except among a select few who are In the^ret, by the announcement that Jos. A.^Mojore waa a defaulter to the extent ot^$400,000. He is the sou of a banker at Madi^son, Ind , aud came to this city tweuty-five^years ago. lu 1872 he secured the general^agency of the Connecticut Mutual Idfe In^^surance company, his operations tieing^lulte extensive, covering all of this state^and portions of lllttiois. He was also sec^^retary and treasurer of the Moore Desk^ompany, and has spent considersble^money In fitting up s building for safe de^^posit pui pose*, the work on which Is now^n progress, lie was regarded as a safe^and successful buslnes man, and his tinan*^clal standing was not questioned ny any^one in the city. He Is a prominent mem^tier and vestryman of St. Paul's KpiMcopal^church, and his personal habits are unex^^ceptional. All effoits to see him tonight^have fsiled.

ExcitingSc.n.s During th. Examination of an^AccusmI P.rn.lllte.
Dibmn, Jan. 84,-The trial of William^O'tirtcn on the charge of conspiracy began^to-day at Carrick-on.Suir. The govern*^ment had Issued a proclamation forbidding^any demonstration welcoming O'Brien, but^despite this action 20,000 persons gathered
aroundthe court house. Six hundred po^^licemen charged the crowd, using their^batons freely, but were unable to distarse^the gathering. As o'tfrten entered the^ourt house he was greeted with vociferous^cheers.
WhileO'Brien was striving to pass^through the crowd to enter the court house^he was selxed by s police inspector snd^dragged thirty yards. The people, mad^^dened by this, pressed forward to rescue^him. The police, however, repulsed the^crowd. Timothy Healy, who stepped for^^ward to aid ^ I'Brien, was met by a bayonet^levelled at his breast A number of report^^ers were maltreated. O'Krien complained^to the judge the police were attempting to^ue ite a bloody riot
Whenthe case for the crown had been^presented, Healy, on behalf of the defend^^ant, applied for subpo naa for Lord Salla-^bury and Balfour, both of whom, he as-^aerted, had made speeches similar to those^^f O'Brien The court refused to Issue^the desired sub|Henas. The spectators In^the court room received the decision with^murmurs and the magistrates ordered the
alien*s cleared. While this was being
oneO'Brien exclaimed: ^I'll clear^out, also!*' and started for the^door. The magistrates shouted: ^Stop^Mm^' and a constable grabbed O'Brien.^Alter ;t sharp struggle O'lfrien. with the^aid of some spectators, managed to reach^the street with no worse dsiuage than a^torn coat. An Immense crowd escorted
ilinen through the town. The police^used their batons without mercy upon the^people who responded with stones snd^sticks. I hiring the melee Mr. O'Brien was^struck violently in the breast with s rifle^st^ ck. Scores of persons were injured.^t he court Issued s wsrrant for the arrest^^f O'Brien and then adjourned. The police^with tixed bayonets are patrolling the
Mleels Of the town.
Whenthe cases of James Lawrence Ca^^re w. member of parliament from north^Klldare, aud Denle Kllbrldge, member of^parliament for south Kerry, who are^charged with offenses under the crimes set,^were csl led in court at Klldare today, the^accused failed to answer, and warrants for^their arrest were issued.
Atthe trial of Father McCarthy, charged^with inciting boycotting, a large crowd^which had congregated about the court^bouse was charged by a force of 2U) police.^Ihe crowd uaodstoues and cobbles against^the police, thirteen of whom were Injured,^ine of the wounded policemen will die^and three others are lu a dangerous condi^^tion.
Lonikin,Jsn. 24.-In the hearing before^the Parnell commission to-day t apt Slack^traced the outrages In Ireland to the Land^League aud to the inllauied language of^the Irish members of the commons, priests^and other leaders.
