part of the Porto Rico act relating to the

Takes Poynter to Task for Calling
Regular Soldiers Hirelings.
BASSETT, Neb., Oct. 4. A troop of
mounted cowboys and citizens of the towu
collected this morning at the depot to
greet Governor Roosetelt He made the
usual plea to his auditors, to "vote to
uphold not only the cause of our material
well-being, but the cause of the honor of
the American flag."
At O'Neill a stop of 15 minutes was
made. Governor Roosevelt said in part:
"The other day at Lincoln I stated
that Poynter had been reported
as having spoken of the regular United
States soldiers as '$15 a month hirelings.'
He has denied that he has ever
made ouch a statement, attributing to me
the word 'butcher,' which I never used.
He was reiwrted in the press as having
made such a statement, but Mr. Dietrich

The American officers on the island o
Tutnila, Samoa, are ruling with a firm
hand and are making the enforcement
of old rules and custom?., when of a. degrading
or supentitiou3 character, rather
unpopular. Recently Letuli, a county
chief, violated his pledges and he was.
tried before a high court, of which
Commander B. F. Tilley, U. S. N., commandant
of the United States naval
station was president.
Letuli was charged as follows :
First Abuse the authority vested in
him by the authority of the United
States government as county chiefs-Second
Incite his people to commit
acts of violence against one Fagaima. a
resident of his county, and to do other
lawless and rebellious acts.
Third Disregard the authority of the
government of the United States naval
After a trial lasting seven days, during
which a large amount of testimony was
taken relative to Samoan customs, the
-president of the court delivered the fol
lowing judgment, in which all the members
This case is of ,the most vital im-
portance te the interests of the government
of the United States in Tutuili and
Manula and to the welfare of the Sa-moans
now under its protection
For this reason the high courc
has given to it a most careful and exhaustive
nvestigation. riirovg'j th con
nictmg testimony of some of the witnesses
it has been difficult to get at nil
the facts of the case, but the court is
satisfied that the following facts are well
established: First the accused, Letuli,
a couny chief of Tutuila. duly appointed
under the authority of the United
States government, was a strong ruler,
having full authority over his people,
who stood .in fear of him. Second! he had
taken the oath of allegiance to the United
States and knew the law, which had been
explained to him. Notwithstanding this
he deliberately ignored the law and arbitrarily"
imposed a fine upon one
ma, without referring the matter to the
proper court. Third, with an apparent
animus against Fagaima the accused
permitted the people of his own village,
Hi ill, to commit acts of violence against
him for what he thought to be on offense
against himself. It is evident that
be knew the law but tried to evade the
consequences of violating-it. Fourth, he
told his people to drive Fagaima out of
his house and to take away his goods; he
forbade Fagaima to again enter his house J
or to fish. in the sea. Fifth, he told the
people of Iliili to kill two of Fuganna's
pigs and to bring hem todliili. T'his was
done and Letuli received the chief's portion
of them. Sixth, he failed to report
any of these matters to the governor of
his district and when officially called to
account for his acts, spoke disrespectfully
of the governor and showed much anger
and resentment towards him. All of
these acts show on the part of Letuli a
personal spite towards Fagaima and an
intention to ignore the laws and punish
him according to his own will and without
even reporting the matter to the
proper authority. The only excuse offered
is to plead a custom which prevailed
many years ago, but has not been
Although not stated in the evidence
before tnis court, it is a notorious fact
that when the commandant's order No.
5, prescribing the form of government
for Tutuila. was first published, the ac
cused. Letuli. came to the commandant
and made a strong and impertinent protest
against it, advocating such customs
as have been practiced by himself and
his people in the case of Fagaima. For
this he was severely reliuked by the commandant
and informed that the authority
of the United States would be maintained
in Tutnila by force if necessary.
It i not the wish of the court to da
away with the many good customs of the
Samoans. Their customs of giving food
to chiefs with alofa and of sh riu? them
mucH respect and courtesy are most com
mendable. The dignity with which thev
conduct their "fonoa" and the great con
sideration which they show to each other
on most occasions ore also much to bs
praised. The chiefs perform important
ofical duties which occupy. thir time and
the people must continue to carry food
to then according to custom and to show
them every respect. While the laws of
the United States will protect every resident
of Tutuila in his personal rights,
any deliberate neglect of a service, or
coartesy to a chief, which has become a
duty by caatora. will be punished.
The whole point at issue in the present
case is that Letuli deliberately ignored
the law and inflicted unusual pnnisliraeuvs
aad then failed to report them. TUlj

er team managed by sheer .plunges
through the line to score six poink in the
last five minutes of play. The final
score was 6 to O.mijfavor of the alumni.
The victors were much the heavier,
while the college boys, excelled -in speed
and team work. Weight triumphed,
howcer, and the studaats were defeated
in a dose, hard game.
The teams lined up a follows :
Alumni A. Waterhouse, center; Walker,

The alumni kicked off to the college
who, after several short bucks, kicked
the ball out of danger. The alumui,
however, found the college Hue invincible
and were forced to surrender the ball
on downs. After several more short
bucks Onhu again kicked. Fuller got
the ball on the ton-yard line, but vvn
nailed in his tracks. The alumni now-
tried to buck the sphere out of danger,
but were forced to kick.
By steady plunging i and kicking the
heavier men worked the liall down past
the center. Just at this point IngalU
circled the right, end for twenty yards.
Hemenway followed' suit on"thc opposite
side for fifteen yards more, landing tne
ball on the college's twenty-yard line..
At this point Oahu took a brace.' got the
ball on kicked it'onr of danger.
The alumni smelled n touchdown

tried a drop kick for goal. Perry broke
through and stopped the trick, how-
In the second half the alumni started
in with a rush. After some bucking back

they kicked the. ball far into the college's

like a streak. The college line held like

(From Chinese Branch report, Honolulu

At that time there were very few Chines--residents

for the benefit of its members.
In the same year we bought a burial lot
at Makiki for the interment of members.
In 1SS1 the Chinese church was completed
and we moved our association to
its parlor and provided a fund of $100 for
the support of the pastor nnd "Ski for

was not large enough to accommodate the
