The Ilorllu rnpers Deny tho I'ztstenrn
of a Treaty c,r Neutrality with l'nglanil
anil thu United Slides What Is Said nt
tliu fllnto Department,
Br.ituv, Jan. LM. Tito National 'Ad
titng denies tbo exlslcnco of a treaty pre
cluding nny European power from ac
quiring or seeking to ncqulro tbo nscend
nucy In Snuiun. It also denies that
Fuglaud and America havo agreed upon
mi)' proceedings for the settlement of
alliili's In Samoa.
Tlio German agent In Samoa says that
on tho contrary Hitch a lionty would bo
opposed to diplomatic etiquette, nnd hns
olllcially notllkd tbo foreign olltco at
Berlin accordingly. The Xcitutir con
tinues: "Tlio treaties between Samoa, Ger
many, Knglaud nnd America provldo
Unit Samoa concedes to each treaty
liowcr equal right with any other power,
but no treaty legnrding neutrality or tho
independence of Samoa exists botween
Germany and America."
Tho North German Gaiclto says that
tho sensation In America over thonamoan
troubles is regarded hero as a dellborato
dcllnnco from Washington.
Tho Stnto Department rccolvcd Mils

at Berlin extracts from tho leading Gor
inan papors on Mm trouble at Samoa.
Tbo extracts aro dntcd January 7, and
give accounts of thu battlo fought Dec.28,
188S, tn whlcji tho Germans wero re
pulsed, although tho German papers
consider tho battlo a victory for them,
yet thoy say It Is ono not to bo crowed
Tho Stato Department ollleials say thoy
know nothing now on tho subject except
the nbovc. Willie they will not admit
that the Department bus mado Its last
move on tho Diplomatic chess board yet
thoy virtually say that tho settlement of
the whole mutter now rests with Con
gress. The causo for silenco on tho part
of tlio Stato Department about their ac
tion Is Mils:
Should Secretary Bnyard or ono of his
ollleials como out and say that tho De
partment hnd exhausted nil 'diplomatic
tactics ovor tho Samonn trouble It would
bo regarded as a threat or deflanco to
Germany and possibly result in a nip
Uiro between tlio two countries.
Consul Sownll's testimony is rogarded
at tho Stato Department as greatly exag

of making a buusatlou.
