The Mataafa party sent a large dele
gation in Apia since tho H.idger's de
parture. This delegation met the
three consuls, sitting as a provisional
government, and assured them again of
tlio dosire of Mataafa and his followers
to keep tho peace. Nothing further
took placo at the meeting.
Tlio provisional government is lwing
carried on without any hitch so far by
the three consuls. Oi this body, I.uther
Osborn, tho American consul-general, is
chairman, lie is alsottho acting chief
justice of Samoa and continues to net as
the United States consular representa

the otllco of chief justice, and has re
ferred tho whole matter to tho Gorman
government. He was, however, jer
suaded ultimately to withdraw his resig
nation which he had written to tlio
commissioners, and accept tlio holding
of tlio olllco by Mr. Osborn. Mr. Oh
born declined to accept tho judgment
unless Dr. Solf was willing for him to
act, and tho doctor having given way
removed nil difllculties.

The whites bavo not been IwlllgorontH
duriim the late war. and many of Ilium

the wliitos feel that they have a right to

united treaty powers.
