"Tbo World'" Authorized Announcement
(arxcuL to tan would. 1
VTiBtirKaTON, May 31. Tho press cable
cram received from Berlin this after
noon (and printed above) has attracted
ronewed attention to tho full abstract
of tho Satnoan Convention which appeared
exclusively In yesterday' " World." Theso
cablegrams state that ' ' tho conforeuco will not
reasBemblo for soveral days "exactly what
The WonLD Bald; that "tho Commissioners
have agreed to the questions at issuo and
have drawn up a protocol" tha lau
gnago of Tub Wonu'a cablegram; that "this
lias been telegraphed to tho governments inter
ested "so stated m The Would Thursday; and
that "it is expected roplies will soon bo received
by wire, and upon rocclpt of which a final
formal sitting will bo held "a repetition of The
Woiild's authorized message
These facts woto all known to the readers of
Tue Would yostorday, and their full and com
plete confirmation by these later reports serves
only to increase tho astonishment of thoso who
read Tub Woiild's exclusivo announcement
yesterday. Tho enterprise of Tnx Would
in scoring such a signal "boat," not
only over tho American, but also over
11)0 English and Continental press, by
securing tho Important news a day In advance
of any other journal, is still tho themo of wonder
in official circles hero, particularly at tho Btato
Dopartmout. Tho snarls, carping criticisms
find feeble attempts to cant discredit upon Tun
Wom.d'8 publication by Journals which, of
course, did not print tho nows, have been effoc
'trtally silenced by tho lato cablegrams from Ber
lin. BrECIAti rxEADixfl.
An afternoon local paper, which yostorday at
tempted to discredit The Would'b story, to-day
prints, tho following: "State Department offi
cials absolutely dcclino to discuss tho Samoan
conference. They admit that matters nro in
mien shape as to wan ant the expectation of a
speedy conclusion of tho conference compara
tively unimportant details only rrraainlng to bo
adjusted. But upon tho provisions of the
treaty, if a treaty has yet been drawn,
they refuse to talk further than
to say that tho public must rccclvo its informa
tion respecting ttcatics in tho usual course,
namely, after tho action of tho United States
Senate, to which all ttcatios must bo sub
mitted for appioval boforo thoy become oper
ative. Tho obv ious reason for this con r so lies
in tho fact that important amendments
nro often mado by the Henato after
ticatics havo been arranged by the diplnmatla
officers of tho treaty powers. Ho radical are
these changes, in fact, that they havo caused
tho failuro of pending treaties, a notablo iu
Manco occurring in tho last Congi ess." ..,.,
. Tho sanio journal says editorially: "Whllo
the United Htatca may not havo succcodrd in
obtaining precisely what it has favored in
respect to all tho points at issue in tho Bamoan
Conference, tho indications point to the sub
stantial adoption of tho American coutentlon
by tho Commissioners. "
CONGRATULATION! C0MIN0 W.
Rccretaiy Blaino has to-day received soveral
telegrams congratulating him upon the results
of the llerlln Conference, based upon tho ab
stract of the completed protocols published in
Tim Would. Whllo declining to .discuss any
Iihase whatever of tho subject hu is apparently
itghly gratified, not only at tho results achieved
y his Commissioners, but also at tho
fftvorablo comment heard on all sides. An
pfllcisl of tho Htato Department said to
The Would coi respondent to-day that tho full
tuxt of tho trcatv would hardly bo mado public
nutil after tho Henato shall havo acted upon it.
It w ill be remembered that w lion President Cleve
land eut tho nihoilos treaty to tho Houato ho
accompanied it with a suggestion that it bo mado
public with as littlo delay as possible. This
HUggeBtion was debated with closod doors and
dually adopted, after which tho treaty was
taken up and discussed in open session.
It is not bellovod. however, that tho
Hamoan treaty will go to tho Houato
with any such ropiest fiom tho President
nr Secretary Blaine. Tho fact that our relations
with Germany and Kamoa. as well as with Eng
land, aro involved, together with Hcoretary
Blaiuo's well-known cautious and scoretlvo
policy, induce tho belief that tho Henato will not
make the Bsmoau treaty public uuttl after tho
EXACTLY WHAT THE WOULD SAID.
Concoriiinn The Wihild'h publication of tho
abstract of tho Hamoan treaty, the Washington
J'lint of this morning sa :
' Tho country will bo bloasod to learn that tho
Hamoan Coufcrcuco has concluded its labors
subject, of course, to tho approval of its respoct
Ivo governments and that this tripartite treaty
agreed upon embraces tho provisions which, from
thorlrst, wcro contmidcd for by tho American
Commissioners. The conference was held cut
the invitation of tho German Cliancollor; and
in framing instructions for tho action of tho
CommlHHloncrs Jlr. Blaino closely followed
tho policy outlined by his predecessor.
Tliee instructions n,uutiug Tur. Would
covered tho rustorutinn of tho etnKm
wo (iiifr, tho virtual autonomy of the
Hamoan ixoplc, and tho perfect ciuality of tho
ticaty powers in their l elation to Hamoa and its
Government. How successfully tho American
Commissioners carried out tholr instructions
and how fully they disuhargid their duty in tbo

London, May 31. A message has been re

surgent leader in Hayti, saying that ho has de
feated President Legitime, captured Tort au

claimed himself provisional Frciident.
In addition to tho forogoine It was reported
among New York merchants having biislucss
relations with Haytl that Legitime had beun

being powerloss to quell tho riotous propensities
nf his legions. One of tho most important
Haytlan merchants, when questioned about tho
rumor, said: . ., .
"That Is Just what I havo been expecting to
hear. It was bound to come, and that within a

Among Legitime's adherent' the story was

tho Htock Exchaugo determined not to roncvv

Commercial Telegram companies for tho uso of
their tickers, and as soon as tho final quotations
wero sent out all tho ticker wires weio cut, leav

tho Governing Cominittco had decided upon,

IIIHIOUV OK THE TICKI'.n.
Tuft first ticker was put in tho Exchaugo in
1H07, It was veiy imperfect, and wus finally
Juperscded about 1K70 by tho ono adopted by
be Gold aud Htock Tclegiaph Company, and
during all theso yeais on every btihincs day tho
firiccs of stocks aud tho l ceo ills of all truusac
ions havo been sent out. About six years ago
ho Commercial Telegram Company succeeded
In making a contract with tho Exchaugo for the
privilege of putting its ticker on tho floor, and
ever since then thcio hss heen tumble, for very
shortly thereafter an cflort was mado to get the
Commercial Company out. This eflorl was ie
s'sted by the Company, who took the mat
ter to the courts, whore it hss Ikjoii ovorsinco
in intormlnablo lawsuits. Two weeks ago
Judge Andrews of tho Htinrcmo Comt rendered
the decision referred to by Mr. Mm so, and tho
lawyers for tho Exchaugo at nucu advised tho
Governing Committee of tho latter to take tho
" hull by the liorus " and put both tickers out,
and they followed that advice.
The New tork Exchange, in Its facilities for
semilog out its quotations, has been in ailvanco
of all theexchaugesof tho woild. In the Lou
don Htock Exchange tho quotations aio scut out
every (If teen minutes only, and iu Pal in no
quotations arc obtainable except direct from
tome broker who n relates on the Bourse, but
hero the ticker gave a cumpleto rccont of tlio
entire business ually. A great many brokcis
havo taken advantage of this to establish ofllcoj
uptown, where tholr customers could go and
see the quotations and soud their orders
down by pnvato who, instead of being
obliged to como downtown lu piraoit. Private
news agencies havo also been established with
tlckorsof tlielrown.on which they have sunt nut
the quotations tak'ui from the official tickers,
and there is to-dayZscarctly a hotel, leading ics

Htock Exchaugo quotations could not bo sccu.

The caso with which quotations could bo ob

shops, aud this action completely wipes tho-o
establishments nut. It has always liecii chaigud
that the Consolidated dtock and Pcti oleum Ex

move is believed by many persons to bo a blow

and its Chairman. Mr. Peters, both claimed
that tholr institution would not bo hurt but
would be benefited lis this action.
' I havo no fear of the r( suit, " said 3Ir, Pclei s.
" We are all right and will go along as usual
andean make our own quotations without any
The old-fashioned pad system will now bo re

and thcio is not much doubt that
wo shall tako somo action without delay."
At thoofuce of the Gold and Htock Company no
one could bo found who was willing to talk
alsiut the matter. Many persons liclieved that
this was simply a shrewd dodgo to get lid nf the
Commercial Company and it Uw suits and thut
some now ariaugemciit would at unco be mado
