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.

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.

NEW YORK. March S. Miss Nathalie
Kchenck's endless chain is still as endless

the postman drops from forty to fifty letters

started last summer when the sick and

too a worthy charity to supply Ice to them,
and at the time calculated that about $U

enthusiasm of her idea. Miss Schenck sat

number of letters to other friends. They did
so. and the next day the dimes began "com

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. Nothing of
a confirmatory nature could be learned here
to-day relative to the published report of a
consolidation of the great Eastern coal in
terests which. It was said, would be placed
under one management with a capital of
nearly a billion dollars. Philadelphia offi
cials of the companies mentioned as having
entered the deal here refused, to say any
thing at all on the subject, or declared they
had received no information regarding it.
Many men hi financial circles were Inclined

TAINTED HI FILIPINOS.
American Soldier Were Fretiuently
IiiNulted by Native Soldier.
VANCOUVER, R. 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

general control or guidance of the United
States, until and provided that the Philip

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

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

have been sent thither. Within a week or so
there will be a thoroughly equipped field
hospital for General Otis's troops. This hos

NEW ORLEANS, March S. The steam
ship Condor arrived to-night from Blue
fields with forty-one passengers aboard,
mostly the Americans composing the body
known as "Rough Riders," with Capt. J. C.
Kennedy in command. They tell the story
of tho revolution which failed. They had
been sent to attack Grey town, inarching
overland, and the San Jacinto, the gunboat
which the revolutionists seized, was kept
close to the shoro to supply them with ra
tions and aid in tho attack. 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
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

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. General Ruhlin is now
in jail at Bluefields for letting the insur
gents off so easily. A Spanish priest at
Rama, who aided tho insurgents, was to
have been shot for the prominent part he
took In breeding revolt, but he stowed away
on the Condor and came to America in

Tho dinner was under the auspices of the

LI HUNG CHANG NEEDED.
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
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.

little damage. Hall drew first blood in the
third round. In the tenth round Hall de
livered a hard right-hand blow on the body
and raised it to Iawier's jaw, putting the
latter on the lleor. He arose before being
counted out. but was weak and his-arms
hung limp at his sides. Hall then delivered
the finishing touch and was given the de

Why Currency Iteform Wan Xot to Be
Expected of the Lntc CouRrena.
The Philadelphia Times, in It obituary
of the Flfty-iifth Congress, makes these
'"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
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. Di1 it need any protection
after the verdict of November, was
rendered? Was there ever x time Six our
history when the credit of the Nation wus
more solid than now? 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. Such a House and Senate will con
stitute the Fifty-sixth Co.grc:.s.
