Mr. Drydun, mail agout on
board the Moana, in answer to a
question, told a BULLETIN report
er that only a few native houncs at
Apia wereburued. Tho buildings
of foioignerB were not harmed uor
their poisons molested.
.Fred. Torrill, formerly Port
Snrvoyor of Honolulu, is return
ing to tho Uuited States iu the
Moana. Upon the authority of
eyewituosBCs at Apia, Mr Terrill
gave the following connected ac
count of the cribid to a Bulletin
"When tho king died the Presi
dent of the Muulcipal Council,
Dr. von llappel, in the
Moana, claimed that the
functions of Chief Justice Cham
bers ceased upon tho death of tho
king, and that he, bb President of
the Council, was the su
preme authority until n new
king was elected. He
declared that ho would closo the
doors of tho Supromo Court, and
prevout the Chiof Justice from
further exercising his functions.
"The American and British con
suls consulted over this declara
tion of tho President, and called
the captain of tho British man-of-war
iuto their coneullntion. They
deiuded that they would support
the Chief Justico iu his office
"They iuformed tho Chief Jus
tice of their decision, who there
upon aunouueed that he would
open the Supreme Court at 11
o'clock tho following day. Tho
British captain informed tho Pro
tddout that if tho doors wero clos
ed against the Chief Justice they
would bo broken open.
"The captain of the Gorman
warship having intimated that he
would support tho President, the
captain of tho Porpoise cleared
his ship for action. Ho trained
one gun on tho President's house,
two guns on tho Tivoli hotel and
two on the German warship.
"In the meantime tho natives
supporting Tanua, tbo young son
of tbo dead Maliotoa, wero gather
ed in Apia from tho difforout isl
amis. Thoso supporting Mataafa
wero also present in considerable
numbers, with moro in the hills
overlooking the town.
"Dr. Rappel privatoly advised
tho Mataafa people to gain tbo
confluence of tho Maliotoa people,
and induce thorn to disarm under
a promise that tbo electiou of a
king would proceed amicably.
Instead of disarming, tbe Maliotoa
warriors throw up breastworks in
front of tho Tivoli. They were
attacked by the Mataafa people,
whom outnumbering they drove
back. Then moro Mataafa war
riors swarmed down from tbe
hills and drove tho Malietoa men
down to the beach.
"This was the situation wheu
tbo British captain took the action
described. A storm nriuing the
Malietoa men, who had taken to
their boats under tho shelter, of
tho two warships, wore received
on board tue vessels. TUose
brought aboard of tho Falko were
"Iu theectimmr.go Dr. Rappel
had led tho Matuata men, ridmo
on horseback at their bead. Meet
iug the British commander on the
street afterward, tbe German re
marked that surely ho would
not bombard the town.
" 'Yes,1 Captain Sturdeo replied j
I would bombard tbo town. I
would blow your houso to pieces.
And if your ship will come out
side of the reef, I shall sink her
in fivo minutes.
"'You scoundrel,' the Britisher
continued to Dr. Rappel, 'you
are tbe cauBO of all the trouble.
I am surprised that Germau
should be represented by so con
temptible a man,
"Aftor this incidont tho Chiof
Justice guvo his decision in favor
of Tanua, You have heard of tho
rest the dofoat of Malietoa and
his being taken on board the
British ship, wbilo Mataafa's pio
visioual government is recognizod
on sboro in the meantime."
Dr. Kramer, one of tho Ger
mans most prominently mixed up
in the recent political troubles in
Snraoi, is a through passenger for
San Francisco in tho Moana.
Dr. Kramer had hardly intend
ed to leavo Samoa as soou, but
recent evonts determined his
course, of action and he is now
bound for his homo in Gormany.
Ho states that ho may return to
Samoa in a year or so. In an in
terviow aboard tho Moana this
morning, Dr. Kramer had tho fol
lowing to say:
"I liiivc just come from Samoa
and can assure you that quiet
reigns iu Apia, where tho light bo
twion tho followers of Mataafa
and Malietoa Tanua took placo.
There has been established a pro
visional government with Mataafa
at the head, and tho representa
tives of th Throe Powors that
have control iu Samoa aro await
iug a joint docision.
"Malaafa is really uot tho king
of Samoa but is simply waiting
for Bomo docisivo action on tho
part of tho Powers.
"Yon havo courso heard of thp
trouble. Tho Chiof Justico, an
American, declared Malietoa Ta
nua king whon, by election, Mata
afa had real'y boon ohosan by a
mojnrity of 40U0
"Thtt Motanfa people did not
like this and, on Dccerabor .'11,
1893. decided to turn nut Malie
toa Tanua and tho vice-king Ta
maBose. They held a council of
war and then, undor tho leader
ship of various chiofs, difforeut
bauds of Mataafa's men gathoicd
iu tho mountains about Apia and
completely surrounded tho town.
"Tho Maliotoa men were Tn the
town and know that Mataafa was
about to attack them. Maliotoa
had, in all, about a thousand men,
whilo Mataafa had about five
times that number.
"On tho afternoon of January 1,
1899, the signal was given and tho
natives, pouring out of tho moun
tains, swept down on the city nnd
attacked Malietoa's inadequate
force. The struggle was a bloody
ouo, both sides showing great
bravery. It was soon over, how
over. A hundred nnd, fifty men
from Malietoa's side went over to
tho oncmy. Malietoa, seeing no
chance, fled with his eight
hundred followers to the
English man-of-war Porpoise.
Tbrt next day, the followers of
Malietoa were sent ashore without
arms and told to consider them
selves prisoners of Mataafa. This
they did, and it was not long be
fore thoy were all vanished to
Savaii, Tutuila, Manono, Apolima
and other small islands. Malie
toa Tanua and Tamasoso lemaiu
ed aboard the Porpoise nnd wero
there when the Moana sailed.
"The total annihilation of Ma
lietoa's forces was barely averted.
Had they eotno ashore under arms
there would not have been one
man left to tell the tale. What
stirred tho blood of the. Mataafa
men was the fact that Muliana, a
chief acting as a policeman for
Malietoa, shot aud killed Saitu
mua, a very high chief from Sit
vaii on Mataafa's side. Tho two
met in the street and Muliaua,
approaching Saitumua, turned his
nile upon him and shot him
"As I eay. -matters are at a
standstill aud tho decision of tho
powers is all ;that is being await
ed." TIm HMntkua Wreck,
The Mauna Loa arrived yester
day afternoon after this paper
went to preea, with positive news
as to the identity of tho vessel
found in pieces on tho Hnmakua
coast. It turns out that she is tho
three-masted schooner Nomad,
ton months out from Shanghai, iu
ballast for Puget Sound. When
she left tbe former place,, she had
aboard Captain McAllet, his wife,
three daughters and a sou, as well
as a full crew. All are believed
to have perished. Otherwiso some
of them would have boon heard
