and Messenger John Hutlcr, li ft for Berlin
by tlio Umhriu Sutunlay morning. Two

fciiger from the Statu Department handed to
Mr. l'hclps a 'a?gc envcloie bearing several
great rod sculs. Tlio messenger had gone
from Washington by the night express, and
the envelope ho carried contained the ofllclnl
Instructions to the Sainonu Commissioners,
Previous to the dipnrturc of the Commis

with Secretary lllainc aura held at the State
department, but the Anal insinuations were
the subject of protracted and exhaustive
lifwiiHition at the Cnbieet meeting on Friday.
After an agreement was reached they were
redrafted and intrusted to a MH-ial messen

guarded with great cure by the commission

correspondent has secured an accurate ab
stract showing the powers and limitations
prescrilicd for thrguiilanec of the gentlemen
who are to represent the United States In the
Jt is a striking and noteworthy fact thnt
In drawing the instructions to tfic commis
sioners the Ideas and general policy of Secre

Secntiiry lllainc. Indeed, there is not ah
item of consequence cmlinieed in tlio In

by .Mr. Ha yard ill the coiiAe of bis several
statements of the position of ih Vniied

missiiiuen nrc instructed to insist u)miii the
iihsnlirv autonomy of the native govern

must iinKrtant jKiint to tie considered, and
its obscrvum is made a sine iia uon of

the same ronsalerntioii thnt Mr. llnyanl ri'

arguing for the absolute nutniioniy of the

Ity orinlliience with the native government
to' any representative of a treaty si r.
The eoniiiiissiuiiers are further instructed
not to admit, under any circumstances, ih '
assumption so arrogantly made by 1'riine

United Mates in Samoa have been in any

The subject of Hie formation of a native
nnverninent for the Samoail Islands Was
rsnvassed at some length before the com
miss oners loft s'hlnstoil. Their Instruct
' tli Us uu litis JUil dw uwl bind theiu t to
proposition submitted by Mr. Bnyard and
UHin which the lust conference split. Mr.
Huyard's scheme, of government provided
for the election of a Kimr and a vice-King
and a Council, to be coin nosed of native
chiefs elected for life bv the Inhabitants.
There was to be a Ministry, so to speak,
composed of livo members; a King, a vice
King (both of whom should bo native
Saiuouus), mid three .Miiiixtcrs, ouo to be
tiouiiniited by ' each of tlio three treaty
I lowers. The scheme, provided also for a
.egislntnro of two Houses, the upper House
to be known as the Tulmnu nnd the lower
House us the Fiilpulo. The upper Houso
was to consist of King, vice King, the threo
Ministers representing the threo treaty pow
ers nnd the chiefs elected for life oy Iho
people. It w ill thus lie seen that Secretary
Bayard's plan involved a preponderance of
native infliicueo. To this the licrniiin Min
Another important fculure on tlio scheme
of (iovrriimcnt was the I-und Court or Lund
Commission, whose business would be to
examine into (lie titles of Sumo.in estate, to
settle the many disputed claims thai foreign
ers are setting up In Sumoa nnd generally to
set at rest alt questions ns to the ownership
of land botli by foreigners and natives on the
Inlands. The Uerinnn Minister favored the
formation of a Land Court, but he would
have pluced Its machinery entirely in tier
man liitiids. The commissioners are not
specillcutly Instructed us to the represent t
lion the treaty powers may have in the local
government of the inlands, hut they arc
dim-ted to insist that such representation
shall be absolutely equal ana impartial.
The qucsm of the restoration of the status
quo ante is quite fully located in the instruc
tion. The commissioners will use every ef
fort to bring about an agreement embracing
No one can predict the length of (he con
ference. Sessions will be held from time lo
time, and it is not eixctcd that the commis
sioners, if successful in their mission, will
return lo this country for several months.
The' commission is amply provided with
funds, the entire appropriation of K'SHJ.isiO
inuilu by Congress to settle tlio Sumoan
troubles, being available (or their expenses.
NO NEWS OF THB DANMARK.

Nkw Youk, April lfl.-s-StiU there Is no
news of the missing tussengers snd crew of
the wrecked steamship Duumark. Thu big
iiiestion that now occupies tho minds of
murine men is when will the National steuin-
ship Denmark arrive, aud will she bring
news of the Duumark. Tho National steam
ship Is now two days and several hours
overdue. There is a possibility that llie do-
lay of the Denmark is due to her being in
collision with tlio Dunmurk. It would be a
strange fate that should bring those two ves
sels together a thousand miles out on the
ocean. Micro Is no uieuus ol accounting
for tho way the Dnnmark luy in tho sea

by a collision. Iter stern was so deep in
the water that tho waves were constantly
washing over the after deck, and her bow
was so high that her keel could be seen.
The National line steamer Denmark left

steamer Danmirk left her irl of Christiana

Wasiii?iotosi, April IS. An opinion wns
rendered by the Hupreino Court of the
United States today in the case of Adam
Budeau vs. the United States. This was a
suit brought by fludeail In the Court of
Claims for pay as a retired captain In the
army from April 2a, 170, to September HI,
INsl, during which time ho was Consul
General lo Loudon, and from November
25, 18H2, up to the date of the tiling of Ihe
suit, during which he was Consul-tj'cncral
at Havana. Tho United States filed a coun
ter cluim, staling that Iladeuu was indebted
to the United btutcs fur money erroneously
Miid him as an army officer fur portions of
tlio period from Dccemlier 31, 1W.I, to Octo
ber .11, mX The Court of Clnlms, by a
divided court, dismissed both claims.
The Supremo Court holds .that Gen.
Iladeuu, while drawing Hilary as C'onsul
Oenernl, wns expressly Inhibited from
receiving additional compensation for dis
charging the duties of any other ofliccr. It
is true, Ihe court says, that It bus bocn
divided that a H'rson holding two olllccs or
employments under the government when
the services rendered or which might he re
quired of them were not Incotnpniilile is not
precluded from receiving tbe salary or com
pensation of both, but llie Treasury Ivparl
incnt did not apparently regard tills euse as
fulling within t tin t exception, and the court
aitr-ccs with that conclusion. It Is held that,

appointments without being held lo thereby

Wshini.7i.si, April IS. The Supreme
Court of Die United Slab s today devided tbe
application of lion-M.sy laj fur a writ of
hsl-eiui corpus. (ioii-Mmj- la", an Apache
Indian, wus convicted of Ihe murder of
another Indian In ArU"ha, and si-uleucrd
to be hanged. Jlu a tried by the District
Court of Iho United Stales for Ihe Scc
oud Judicial 1'isiricl of Ariiona, It Is
contended, hi his behalf, Hint the olh-tise
committed was ngulust llie laas nC the Ter
ritory, and should have been tried under
those laws, and by a court sitting to admins
l-ter lustics under them, snd not by a United
Stall s Court, trying the rase uud. r Ihe laws
of Ibe United Slates. The court holds thai
Hie case would pnqerly have been tried In
tbe United Siufs Court prior to the passage
of the act of March .1, 1.), but that, by the
terms of that act, otTrnses rommmccl In the
Territories by one Indian sk'iIh-1 another
should 1 tried Under the Trrrlto
rial laws. The mode of trial, Ihe court
sins, was so much al vuriauce with atrial
under territorial laas as lo entitle lion-Shay-T
to Ihe writ prayed for. He was srn-lel
by a United Stales Marshal, Instead of by
tbe County Slicntf. and was Indicted and
