THE INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL, THURSDAY, MARCH 9, 1899 In? rumors around Apia, the United State has not recognized Mataafa a? Kins, and that the consul has nothing on the matter from his Kovernment and is awaiting- dis patches. In ad-Htlon to these- disquieting facts Ma taafa has had a little trouble with the ltrltlsh war ship l'orpo-e. The Ponolse. after matters had settled down in Apia, went for a cruise around the jrroup. When sh" re turned Captain Sturdy found that no natives ranw near his 5hip and that a taboo had been declared against the vesstl. He at once j-tnt a nctf to the provincial government, demanding an apology and a withdrawal of the boycott. To this Dr. ItafM. as? execu tive lu-ad. rfplid that tho boycott was not against men-of-war. but against the chlVf justice, who was a guest on hoard. A still s hanr note was sent by Captain Sturdy to the effect that he would take dtcl.-lv action nt ence and the boycott was remove-d. Her Majesty's ship Iloyalist Is now here also. Th chif Justice, although now rrcoisnized by th CJtrman consul und-r Instructions from Germany. Is still lnc thwarted in "very' possiblo way by th Germans. Dr. Ilafftl was cited by th thief justi for con tempt, but tb-cllned to com- to court and placed himself under th protection of the tierman consul. Il- was arreted by th marshal of the court, but on his refusal to go no attempt was made to fore' him. Th chief Justice rstel content with having brought the matter to this lsuc Herr Von llulow was also cited for contempt and dis puted the Jurisdiction of the court on th same ground as Dr. Rafffl. The German consul interposed his protest, but Uulow has. nevertheless been summoned to appear in two weeks. H. Moore?, an American, apolo gized to the court for writing a threaten ing letter and wan purged of cor tempt. Herr CSroKsmuhl.s still remain In the German con sulate and will not venture out for fear of arrest by the court officers, Everybody is anxiously awaiting thr decision of the powers avd In the meantime it is. not thougnt there will l- any further disturbance. VaiUanoo." world-famed through having been the island home of R. U Stevenson, has Just been purcha-ed by Ilerr "uust. of Hamburg. He intends to make his winter home in Samoa, sending the summer in Germany. , 4 The Associated Press correspondent, shortly after thf seizure of th Sainoan gov ernment by Mataafa, had an intervie w with the noted chief. Mataafa when asked why had proclaimed Kin?, said that Mailetea Taputek being dead, the Samoans had a right to elect a new King and he was chosen. Ac-cording to Mataafa's view this was not ir violation of the Iterlln treaty and in the version of the treaty r.rlnted in Samoa, there is no stipulation made by Count Itismarck that Mataafa should never be King. Mataafa admitted, however, that he had been warned that thre? was a stipulation against his.lwdng King and said h liad approached the Ger man consul about the matter, who said the German government had forgotten the past and now had no objection to hi becoming King. The protocol, which contains the stip ulation against Mataafa. was not attached to the treaty prints for the Samoans. Ma taafa declared that he sought to le King so as to bring i-ace to Samoa.

Miss Schenck sat lown and wrote four letters, each one to a Jriend. She asked them to send a dime to her. and for each one to write the same number of letters to other friends. They did so. and the next day the dimes began "com ing. The endless) letter chain has brought In $25,000, all of which has been turned over to the Red Cross.

A HH.UON-nOLLAR TRVST. iaowftlp About the Proposed Comb Inn Hon of EnMtcrn Coal Interest. NEW YORK. March 8. The Evening Post, referring to the rumored coal com bination and J. Pierpont Morgan's connec tion with it, to-day says: "The union of the Scranton coal companies is believed to have been effected through deposits of their stock with the Guaranty Trust Company of this city. The purchase of these com panies Is a part of a comprehensive plan fcr control of the anthracite output nnd. while it Is said that no more Independent collieries are at present the subject of nego tiation, yet It may 1? taken as assured that the Scranton mines were first taken under control tecause of the eiangerous proportions which the proposed Independent anthracite line had assumed, and that ethers will be taken if the projectors of the plan for uniting the anthracite output see any endangering ot their plans for main taining prices on a profitable basis. Nego tiations are known to be in progress with operators In other districts. The visit of J. P. Morgan to England has bet.n taken as having a bearing on t he coal deal. It was stated to-day. by those In a position to know, that Mr. Morgan's visit had no rela tion to any such move, nor is his return to be made the occasion for any definite an nouncement of a ccal combination. That is just wiiat he and the anthracite presi dents wish to avoid. It is, nevertheless, a fact that all anthracite Interests are now striving to regulate the outputs and make the industry fairly profitable." PHILADELPHIA. March 8.

SUFFERING FROM HEAT AMERICAN SOLDIHRS AT MANILA SWELTLRINti IX STEAM -LIKE AIR. Situation in the Philippines a Viewed by Returning Traveler Complaint of Oar Troop. MANILA, March The temperature to day at C o'clock was eighty-seven degree?, but the cloudy air wad like steam and the troops wero greatly inconvenienced on the line in splto of the temporary shade af forded by matting and bamboos wherever feasible. T'iere were fewer prostrations, however, from the heat. Our troops to-day are not compelled to remain in the open country to the same extent as yesterday, when they were engaged in clearing the jungle. The rebels seldom appear in the open except In the coed of the morning and In the evening. Our soldiers will probably feel tho heat less when they are on the move. The following lights on the coast of Panay and Gulanaras islands have been re-established: Manlgonlzo, Zeigantes, Calabazas, Sietopecados, Hollo and Luzarana.

C., March S.-Mail ad vices from Manila brought by the steamer Empress of India throw some sidelights on tho causes of hostility between Americans and insurgents. An Englishman who wit nessed tho first outbreak says: "I was told that Aguinaldo had displayed a tlag of truce, but that Dewey refused to recognize it, add ing that tho Filipinos started the fighting and they would have to abide by it. An old Filipino told mo it was the leet thing that could have happened, as, if the Americans gave the Filipinos a thorough good drubbing now, they would have peace for the next fifty years. American soldiers whom I have spoken to complained that the taunts and gibes they had to put up with from the Filipinos was awful. It was quite a com mon thing for a Filipino to tell them that they could not tight, and that one Filipino was better than a dozen Americans." An American gentleman named Crocker, who saw a good deal of the stirring events at Manila, corroborates the statement as to American soldiers having to put up with all kinds of insulting language from, in surgent sentries, saying that the Filipinos would frequently walk up to them, point their bayonets at their faces and taunt them. Soldiers had, however, strict orders to take no notice of them unless they tired, when tiring was to be returned with inter est. Mr. tTTocker states that before the outbreak took place the soldiers to whom he had spoken frequently exclaimed to him: "Wo cannot stand it much longer." Mr. Crocker added that in firing upon the Amer icans the Filipinos wished to see how much the Americans would stand. John Rarrett, formerly American minister to Siam, at Hong-Kong addressed a special dispatch to the Associated Press in widch he speaks of the form of government which should prevail and said: "Judging from my own investigation of the Philippine Islands, thir resources, possibilities, loca tion, inhabitants, customs, habits and capa bility of leaders of people, the happiest solu tion of the present problems and difficulties would be the careful establishment of a seml-lndependent protectorate, under the general control or guidance of the United States, until and provided that the Philip pines shall prove quality and ability to stand alone, the United Stntes reserving for itself some port like that of Subig bay for a naval station and securing for itself and other nations in the event of eventual inde pendence extraterritorial right of Jurisdic tion over nations as we now have In Japan, China. Siam. Persia and Turkey. I would lay special stres on this point of territorial rights as assisting in settling Philippine questions." ; WILI, I SE KUAr'-JOIttiHNSKNS. Regular Will Soon Cilve Fillpluo LeoiiM In Slut rpMliuotlnjf . WASHINGTON, March S. A fact in con nection with the regulars who are now re inforcing General Otis In the Philippines that is giving considerable satisfaction to the War Department is that they are nil armed with the "Caliber 30" rifle, common ly known as the Krag-Jorgensen. The-re has been more or less uneasiness over the fact that the volunteers on the firing line around Manila were at a decided disadvan tage against the natives owlnj? to the fact that tho Filipino sharpshooters, armed with Mausers, could keep out of range of the Springfields, with which our volunteers were armed. This was not only the source of a good many casualties among our troops, but had a bad moral effect on them, as it was very trying to be continually- under fire from an enemy who kept discreetly out of range. With the arrival of the regulars this situation will be completely changed. The reinforcements all neve the "Caliber 30" ride, which is practically Just rs good a gun ns the Mauser, whilo in addition our regular troops are sharpshooters almost to a man. This is largely owing to tho fact that for years tho target ammunition allowance in our small army ha been about J per annum, an amount no European nation has ever thought of spending. This tloes not say that there are not many excellent Phots among the volunteers, and though the War Department has no definite information on the subject, there is little doubt that the best shots among the volunteers are armed with the new rlrt?s already. 2,000 stands of these arms having already been sent to General Otis, while there ate t,uX more awaiting his order at the Uenecla arsenal. There have been somo reports recently of the wounding of some of our own men by explosions of fie Sprlnglields, and it has been suggested in tho War Department that possibly this was the result of trying the new smokeless ammunition in these guns. Hut this Is discredited by tho ordnance bureau, which says that, although there have been shipments of smokeless amihuni tion for the Springtields, that It is not like ly the volunteers have yet received it. In addition the charge of the smokeless powder has leen accurately gauged so as not to overtax tho resistance of tho old Springfield mechanism. AVOltlC OF Till: CROSS. Women NnrscN nnd 9-0,tMK Worth of Supplier Sent to the Philippine. NLW YORK, March S. The fact that the soldiers who are wounded in the trenches around Manila and elsewhere in the Philip pines need care has not been overlooked, by the New York branch of the Ited Cross So ciety. More than ),e worth of clothing, medicinal supplies and delicacies haves been shipped recently to Manila, and many nurses have been sent thither. Within a week or so there will be a thoroughly equipped field hospital for General Otis's troops. This hos pital will 1m? under the management of Miss Margaret Henshall, who was detailed by the New York auxiliary of the Keel Cross to take charge of the work of relief In the Philippines. Miss Henshall left New York on tho United States transport Grant, which is due to arrive in Manila bay within the next two or three days. Three trained nursen are with Mis Henshall. Another consign ment of supplies for the Manila hospital was sent by the New York lied Cross aux iliary on the United States transport Sher man, under the guidance cf Miss Starr, who has three trained "nurses with her. When the transport Sheridan sailed for the Last, a few days later, another shipment of med ical supplies was made. Miss Gladwin and three nurse-s being in charge. "The Sun Francisco branch of the Ited Cross has been doing most of the work of relief among the wounded soldiers of the army In the Philippines." said Chairman Denlge, of the New York supply commission of the society, "but we saw that the New York auxiliary would find plenty to do there."

When they got half way they ran into another gunboat which Nicaragua had borrowed from Hon duras. The San Jacinto could have sunk the enemy, but turned tail and fletl. The Honduran gave pursuit, but when she got near enough to use her stationary gun the Saa Jacinto ran up the white flag. Her captain made terms for the soldiers ts well, and then both boats steameel up and made known the fact that tho revolution was over and Iteyes had fled. They went back to Bluefields and found the revolution really over. Eleven Americans had led a victory at Rama, but after that were eleserted by the natives and also compelled to return to Bluefields. Reyes had been told that his armies were defeated and the Nicaraguans in the interior had joined the Zelaya stand ard Instead of his, so he sought safety by escaping on the Bonaventure to Iiocas del Tore. Tho Rough Riders were taken aboard the Condor and sailed for America under the terms made with General Ruhlin after the gunboats met.

Ordered tu Iletnrn to Pekfntr and An dlitt the Empredi Dowager. VANCOLTER, D. C. March 8. Advices from China by tho steamer Empress of Ja pan state that Li Hung Chang, who has! recenxiy Deen Dusuy oceupieu. in uetermining and preparing for the construction of Yel low river works in Shan-Tung province, has been ordered by an imperial edict of the Empress dowager to return post haste to Peking. It is stated that this step is due to the uncertainty of foreign and palace politics at present, and the Empress dow ager appears to wish to have her old ad viser by her side when the occasion arises. Meanwhile the Emperor, Kwang Hsu, ap pears only to be kept alive at the dowager Empress's will. He may be murdered any day. The Empress dowager's fear of the minister of Great Britain, America, etc., alone prevented the summary poisoning of the Emperor after the coup d'etat of Sep tember last, nnd the consequence was that the health of the Emperor gradually re covered, the idea being that -low poisoning had been attempted. Encouraged, however, by the apparent indifference of the foreign representatives, as Kwang continued exist ence especially by the cordiality with which the wives of the foreign ambassadors ac cepted the invitation to the palace, the Em press dowager urged on by Kang Yi, pres ident of the board of punishments, has now determined to make away with Kwang Hsu altogether. A Peking letter In confirmation of the above states that the Emperor's health has recently grown worse and this appears to point to the. fact that the Empress dowager has now learned the device of pitting the jealousies of the opposing ministers against each other and reaping benefits therefrom.

A prominent contractor of Hartford City said that thre was not a good brick chim ney in town which had len built for eight years and did not have a fire-clay lining. The mortar has been eaten by the gas until it lecomes In many places as soft as wood ashes, and is blown out by the winds. In somo chimneys this rotten mortar has left holes near the roof, and a hot tire will sooner or later ignite the shingles.

VSFA1II CHITICISM. Why Currency Iteform Wan Xot to Be Expected of the Lntc CouRrena. Washington Post. The Philadelphia Times, in It obituary of the Flfty-iifth Congress, makes these statements: '"The Congress was elected upon one Is sue only, the protection of the public crexlit. The most Important subject it was expected to consider was the reform of the currency. It did nothing at all in thk direction, but it had the partial exoue that other subject 5, not contemplated in the election of ls, had in the meantime become paramount." "The Congress" means the Senate and tho House of Representative?. Two-thirds of the members wf the Senate wre elected frior to the great campaign which had for ts object "the protection nf the puWIc credit." When the Fifty-fifth Corgre came in the gold-?tandard House wan offset by a free-coinage Senate. It wan a Senate unreservedly committed and enthusiastically devoted to 10 to 1. There was no other occupation in which a majority of that body found half so much enjoyment a. in voting for free coinage at that ratio. Therefore it is not fair, because it is untruthful, to say that "the Congress was elected upon oiw issue only, "the protection of the public credit." And who expected, who had any right to expect, such a Congress to reform the cur rency? Every man of average intelligence and capahl of readlntr the newspapers knew in November. lv, that only the House of Representatives in the next Con gress would be in favor of the gold ftand ard. and that the same old silver majority In the Senate wenild hold on. The failure of many business men and some news papers to recognize these immutable fact of the situation, and their ea"orts to fore-e legislation when it was clearly ir.ip fsitlo, present a mystery that we have never been able to penetrate. But it Fhould tomfort Pur Phl'ude'phia contemporary to consider the condition of the public credit !urmg the ifi th-; Fifty fifth Congress.

I there a slrgle government en earth whose credit is letter than ours? And where n th? ratlin whoso credit rests on a better bati than curs? It is true, however, that scm:thing in tho way f)f currency reform should to eione. A House and Senate in arcord on t'.ii currency issue constitute the rirft requisite lor that work.

What Head, aches lean." The dreadful headaches which women suffer mean nineteen times out of twenty that there is more trouble than headache. There is prob ably some un healthy condi tion of the del icate organism of womanhood vyv;v." and often added to this the digestive func tions are out of order; these two conditions cause nearly all the headaches from which women suffer. There are two great remedies specially adapted to these ailments invented by the chief consulting physician of the famous Invalids' Hotel and'Surgieal Institute of UufTalo, X. V.. Dr. R. V. Pierce.
