If nny. was demanded. In his (Mr. Fryo's) judgment tho existing tt.ilo of thltius nt those IslamU mado tlio In quiry an Imperative nocosslty nt this time, al though It might dlseloso nn exceedingly dls reimtnljlo cJinptor of hlbtory In American diplomacy. No Amorlcnn citizen could ques tion tho Interest of tho Unltod Btntos In tlio prcorvntlon of the Indopoudoneo of Samoa, Tnoo Wlamls wero In tho centre of tho Pn clllc Ocean, being ns far from tho Snndwlch Island as tho Sandwich Islands wore from ban 1'r.uu'hco. and being about 1,1100 miles from Auitrnlln. A llttlo while aco tno United Males bad obtained n ooncosslon of onooftho moat inncnlflcont harbors of the world in those islands, and had established a coaling station, lhe United States had mado a treaty with Saiuoi In JB78. and Groat Britain and Germany had mado trouties with Samoa In tho I following) oar. In which trontlos it was under stood and agreed that tho Independence and neutrality of Samoa would bo forovor pre served. King Mallotoa was a very warm frtond of the Unltod States so warm o friend that tho fact provoked tho jealousy of the German business men on tho islands. In 1886 Tamassi rebelled against tho King, but tho robolllon could bore been put down without difficulty. The Ameri can and English representatives in Samoa, liowovcr, desiring to prevent bloodshod, callod the attention of Malletoa to tho obligations of the Unltod Statos'and Great Britain, and per suaded him to allow Tumasst's rebellion to roceod bb far ns It could, for it was a fooble one If unaided. Malletoa.thereforo, did nothing. But troublu was brewing In Samoa, Com plaints cam to tho State Department from the American Consul, and a Commissioner was sent out and an Investigation mado. Finally it was considered on absolute nocesslty that there should be some settlement, and a con ference was agreed upon, to bo held In the city of Washington In 1887. betwoen tho United States, Great Britain, and Germany. At that conference Germany had demanded or asked th&t she should absolutely control tboso Islands. Secretary Bayard refused to comply with such an unreasonable request Tho con ference had not dissolved, but had simply taken a recess, and within ton days from tno begin ning of that recoss the German fleet sailed: for Samoa, enterod the harbor, and took posses Moil of the lslauds. She did this undoubtedly with the consent of Great Britain, and with n lull understanding In advance with Groat Britain. It tbere had been no suoh under Handing the English fleet would have gone to bamoa and tho German fleet would bavo re tired. It was an outrage and an insult to the United States, which nogreat country would submit to for a single moment. The Germans had taken practical possession of the IMands, hud etipoused the cause of Tamassi. hod com pelled the surrender of King Malletoa. and had deported him to a remote Island, where he was to-day. They bad put Tamassi In power, and had appointed as his Premier a Gorman Consular clerk. They had boycotted American business men. picketed tho American Consulate with German guards, hauled down, or compelled to be hauled down, the American flag, and had committed every conceivable outrage on those noor people who had been friends of Malletoa, They had broken up the business of American business men tbere, and had treated the American Consul with insult Finally the Ger man fleet bad sailed away, leaving Tamassi In power. He (Mr. Frye) understood very well that Seo retory Bayard bad defined distinctly to the German authorities the position assumed by the United States, but nothing had been done to restore the lights of American citizens in Samoa. A short time ago Madaafa. a legiti mate successor of Malletoa, had raised troops among Molletoa's friends, and at the last ad vices had given battle to Tamassi. routed him, conquered him thoroughly, and was to-day a legitimate king on the throne ot Samoa. But at the same time bad como the news that the German fleet was once more sailing to Samoa, What lor? No one knew, but tbere was no 1 roason to doubt that Germany Intended to I take abuolnto possession of those islnnds. And L why should she not? Great Britain had inter- ft pod no objection to her past action, and the J United Slates had done absolutely nothing fl within the last five or six months in regard to ; It. Why then should not Germany assume that the United btatos and Great Britain were ready to permit her to toko possession of the Islands? It was undoubtedly well enough, Mr. Frye remarked, sarcastically and bitterly, to lit out ships of war and send them down against the poor, miserable republic of IiaytL It was well enough for the great American republic, when Mexico took and Imprisoned eomeAmerloan tramp, to threaten war, and even go to the very ragged edge of it. But would It not be more consistent with tho dignity and power of this great republic to protect the rights of her citizens against her equals, against n country like England or a country like Germany? One vessel seized In' Haytl: a hundred vessels seized by Canada the one backed by Great Biltaln, the other backed by no one. In his opinion tho American people demanded that If Its power was to be ebown it should be shown i against Its equals, not against its Inferiors. Mr. Fryo asked for the present consideration of the resolution, and henoDedthat the Com mittee nn Foreign Belatlons would beaotive and Industrious In Indlng out tho condition of t lings In those lain ids. and what the duty of tho United States required. Mr. Gray of Delaware moved that the resolu tion b referred to tho Comralttoe on Contin gent Expenses, and It was ko inferred, iio would not bo said, have objected to Its Imme diate consideration but for the attitude as sumed by the Senator from Maine, and the re-maik with which he had chosen to accom pany the resolution. Whethor tlio Government Of the United States, under the impulse of Jingoism, should Interfere in matters which concerned the islands In tho l'acltle Ocean, nnd should embroil Itself with those Eu ropean powers whose foreign affairs are governed by tho Exeruttvo entirely, without the Intervention of tho legislative orotber pop ular branches of the Government, was a Ques tion to he determined by the legislative power of the United States., by the Senate and Bouse of ltepresentatlvc In Congress assembled. 1 ortunatelv no power was ever lodged in the r J.xocutlve of the United States to commit this gp'iil Unvernment to a foreign polloy which lreli-atrd the use of forco. Thot could only be done by the consent of Congiess. If this country were to omb-irk lu a policy of torrl lorisi enlargement or of entangling alilanoes (cuntrary to Aino-lPii.li r.reeedentH and Ameri-;-an tra; itlonl.lt would ho well to have this reso lution i Iwtiiwil Imiore the American people In the halls ot Cnugiit. 'ihero was certainly no liotvir i vie-1 m tho Er.ocutivo or in nny of the exoeutho dirartmenib to commit the Gov (iinnient to a io)oy that involved the assertion pi nhylpnlforcoorlnterfeienpeln mattsrs of llils k nd without legl-lntion In t'ongroas. Ho Hint it soemod to him that. If such a policy was tn be Inaugurated. It mlcht as well bo dis cussed on the resolution offered by the Senator li-om Maine us any other way nnd nt any other time. Ho simply wanted to onter his caveat agairsfnecrltlelimwlth which that Senntor hnd Hccomnanlpd his resofutlon.

Ever since- tlio nt tempted murderof Mrs. James Olmstead, a colored woman, by James Gordon, also cotorod, last October, thoro has been much speculation ns to the cause of tho shooting. Kolthor Gor don nor Mrs. Olmstead would say a word. Tho woman was so badly Injured that for n long time hor life was despaired of. At Gordon's trial to-day tho following romantlo tale ot lore nnd jonlousy was related as his excuse for try ing to take the woman's life. , Ho said thnt ho hnd been engaged to Mrs. Olmsload beforo she was marrlod to hor pres ent husband : that ho was nt son, nnd when ho returned ho was to marry her. but on hU return ho was sadly disappointed to find that sho had thlrtydaysprovlously marrlod James Olmstond, Enppolng thnt Gordon was dead. He wont to seaugaln. but Josle. as he called Mrs. Olmstcnd. did not want hint to go. she saying that this world would bo dreary to hor without his pros, onoo, and that sho had marrlod a man thnt she didn't lpvo. She wanted Gordon to lenvo Ms ship and stny with her. They corresponded for two veors. whloh fact Mrs. Olmstead admitted on the wltnoss stand. Gordon said that he and Josle lived as man and vvlfo. Frequently ho mot hor In Boston, whoro they would stay for a dav. Ho said he didn't like tho double llfo ho wns lending, nnd told Josle that ho had bettor go nuay. 1th tears In hor oyes she porsuad ed him not to leave her. bhe destroyed his dlsehargo papers to keep him from golngawny. Gordon said that ho pleadod guilty for the rea son that bo did not rrnnt to expose Josle. but as be was now compollod to he said ho must A weok before tho shooting he was In Boston with Josle. nnd hor husband afterword accused htm of bolng with her. About that time Gor don mot a man in Boston who said that Josle was In n certain honso. and that Bho had In duced his wife, who resided nt Mount nope, to go with her to Boston nnd stny ovor night Gordon went Into tho place nnd found her thore. nnd whon she saw him sho hung her bend In shnme and snld: " Don't scold mo, Fronchv." "I was much surprised, said Gordon, "for I supposed sho was a woman above suspicion, for It wan not tho right way to repay mo for my constancy." Tho following Sunday Gordon nsked her where a ring was which ho had glvon her, nnd she said sho had pawned it, hut did not have tho ticket. The next day (Monday) he pur chased a revolver In Boston with the Intention of killing hor nnd then ondlng his own life. Ho went to Dodham nnd mado an attempt at mur der, but was unsuccessful. The Court took tho case undor consideration. Judge Sherman sentenced Gordon to seven yoars In State prison. The womnn whom ho attempted to kill waited In tho oourt room until sho heard tho nontonce. ana while Gor don was bolng removed from tho court room he callod out: Josle. como here" Bhe hesi tated. Ho noticed this and snld: "Don't be afraid." She approacbod hor would-be mur derer and placed her hand In his. He grasped it firmly anil sntd brokonly: "Good-by, Josto: good-bv." Ho was then hustled out ot the court room. INVALIDATED BA1UIOAD BONDS, South Caroltna'a Leglalatare Taking Stepa to Make Them Good. Columbia, Deo. 10 Tho Joint Judiciary Committees of the Senate and Houso of the State Legislature, to whom was roforrod the matter of railroad bonds declared Invalid by a recent doclslon ot tho Stato Supreme Court, had a meeting this afternoon and unani mously arrived at tho conclusion that It Is im portant for the credit of the State that somo legislation should be hod at onco looking to the validation of the bonds in question. A sub-committee was nppolntod to look up the law on the subject and to pro rare a bill which will validate tho bonds. This committee will report In a day or two, and there seems to be no doubt that an act will be passed by tho Legislature to validate the bonds. It is also about defin itely settled that all tho railroad taxes col lected in counties tn which such bonds have been Issued and declared Invalid will be turned ovor to the county treasuries as tho nuelens of a fund to meet the Interest on the township railroad bonds. Ovor a million dol lars of these bonds are In the hands ot Inno cent parties, and tho Legislature 1b determined to make them good. This Is Imperatively de manded, for the reason that tho entiro State dent, over I6.000.000. will havo to bo refunded In a few years. JOCKEY HTONE ON TRIAL.

These should be provided tor by the Stele law precisely as Is now done for the Mate iruards. They should be exempted from jury duty, they shoold be uniformed they should rerelve the ray of their xrade while nn duty under instruction, and they should, at least once a year, be required to serve on board the national squadrons of evolu'ion. which tor this purpose should be ordered to the most convenient port tn the etaies having such naval militia.
