In tlio Samoiin Islands by the
Joint Commission
Commissioner Tripp's Report to Secretary
of State Hoy?It Is Proposed
to Abolish the Klnfishlj) to Prevent
n Hccurrcncc of the Lxto Conflict.
Chlel'Justlco Chambers Sustained
WASHINGTON, V. C., Juno 22.-Tho
Becretury of state has received a dla- 1
patch from the Hon. Bartlett Tripp,
T'nitpf! States commissioner at Rnmnn 1
paying that peace had been restored In ;
the island; the commission had sustained
the decision of Chief Justice
Chambers In the contested case of the
election of the king; thnt Malletoa Tanu
has resigned; the kingship was to
be abolished and a provisional government
As far as the state of aftalrs In Samoa
and the programme for the future
proposed by the commission are disclosed
In Mr. Tripp's brief cablegram,
they are satisfactory to the state department.
In the view of the state department
most of this programme la
not final but Is subject to the approval
of the three governments party to the
treaty of Berlin. This Is true of the
projected abolition of the kingship, an
otllce specially provided for In the
treaty. There Is little doubt that our
government will consent at once to
this provision ns soon as It Is made apparent
that the governor of Samoa,who
Ik to succeed to tile control of affairs in
Samoa will be selected In such matter
as to ensure impartiality towards the
rodents. The fact that the commission
has unanimously sustained the
decision of the chief justice in disqualifying
Mataafa and Boating Malletoa
Tanu on the throne is particularly
gratifying to the authorities here. Admiral
Kautz's first action upon arriving
at Apia was to decide that Chief
Justice Chambers must be sustained.
The commission having found that Mr.
Chambers' decision was right. It follows
that the admiral's action also was
correct, and so the talk of preference of
claims against the United States for
damages resulting from his action will
come to nothing.
The British foreign ofllce has forwarded
to Mr. Tower, the British
charge here, a statement of the conclusions
reached by the Samoan commission,
Including In part the text of the
proclamation abolishing the kingship
and establishing the provisional government.
It states:
"The commission published a procla- '
matlon on June 10. reciting '
"Whereas, The Paid Malietoa has
voluntarily tendered his resignation as 1
king, and the same has been duly ac- 1
copied, and
"Whereas, The high commission has
decided to abolish the oflice of Icing 1ft '
Samoa, proclamation is made for the '
establishment of a provisional goverunent
during the stay of the high comfsslort
In Samoa."
German Con Jlrmntion. ?
DERL.TN*. June 22.?An official dls- ,
patch from Apia, Samoa, confirms the |
dispatches of The Associated Press,
from Apia, announcing Malletoa Tanu's
abdication in favor of the Samoan ,
commissioners, who have appointed a ,
provisional government, composed of
the statement that the commission recognized
the competence of the chief
justice to select a king. The official
dispatch received at Berlin says the
chief Justice and the municipal authorities
will exercise their former func- :
tions until further notice, and that Dr. 1
Solf, the German president of the municipal
council of Apia, has assumed

of Alfred M. Eames, a wealthy wheel
manufacturer of this town, who was '
last seen by those who know her, leav- j
Ing her father's office about 2 o'clock j
yesterday afternoon. Mr. Eames fears i
that the child has been kidnapped and '
the officers are working on that theory. ]
The girl went to her father's office on .

She remained In the building a short (
time and then started away, leaving j
her wheel there. Since that time no 1

wards evening when she did not np- ]

anxious, and finally asked assistance I
from the police. Search was carried on j
nil night, but not the slightest trace of
the missing child was found. l

was sent out and soon posses of search- f

For Indemnity for Louses Sustainod
in Samoan Islands.
WASHINGTON, D. C., June 22.-In
connection with Baron von Buelow'a
statement to the relchstag as to Indemnity
claims of Germany for losses In
Samoa, the June Issue of the Prussian
Annual Just received In ofllclal quarters
here contains a discussion of how far It
will be possible to assert clalmB for
losses suffered by German trade and
capital In consequence of the warlike
events of the last year in the West In31es,
the Philippines and Samoa. A
llstlnctlon Is made between such losses
as were brought about directly by the
war, and such as were the Indirect result
of the conditions of war, as for Instance,
the ruin or long storage of
?oods In consequence of the Impossibility
of shipping them by reason of the
blockade. Increased insurance premiums,
double freights, Increased expenditure
for the suspension of business
as well as losses of interest. The
report continues:
"The compensation for the mere Indirect
damage will be according to the
ruling principles of International law, a
fnatter of the greatest difficulties, yet It
Is evident that the Germans will have
to be considered at least to the same
ixtent as subjects of other neutral nations
are compensated for such losses.
As regards the losses caused directly
by. the war the subjects of neutral
Jtates living within the boundary .of a
3tate engaged in war have no claim to
l privileged treatment through the
belligerent parties; they are considered
to belong to the population of the
country and to share their fate. Claims
tor compensation may therefore, as far
as the war on the Philippines Is concerned,
be settled only by way of arbitration
or agreement. Thus, according
to International law, foreign states are
not liable for losses Incurred by domestic
troubles. If a responsibility of
the respective foreign government cannot
bp conclURlvplv miido nut on no
count that it had been able to prevent
the damage. On the other hand there
;s no doubt that full compensation must
be granted for all such cases where
Spanish or American authorities and
troops have seized the property of neutrals
for their own use or where these
authorities and troops have Illegally
caused losses.
"As regards the compensation for the
damage done to Germnns In Samoa, a
3tate of war has existed, contrary to
the clear provision of the Samoan act,
between the Anglo-American troops
and the majority of fhe Inhabitants of
Samoa during which those troops have
violated a custom recognized by International
law by not notifying the
Germans on March 15, of the impending
bombardment of Apia. Here a
sense of fairness certainly ought to demand
compensation to the Germans for
losses occasioned by England and
The author comes finally to the conclusion
that governments must assert
only such claims as are well founded

Raising Sheep for Mutton.
The demand for good mutton Is constantly
increasing, and the production
sf prime mutton for American and European
markets is rapidly becoming a
permanently established Industry of
i-ast proportions In the United States.
As an aid to all persons engaged In
this feature of American agriculture,
the United States department of agriculture
will soon Issue Farmers' Bulletin
No. 96, entitled, "Raising Sheep for
The bulletin, submitted for publication
by Dr. D. E. Salmon, chief of the
bureau of animal Industry, was prepared
by Professor Charles F. Curtlss,
director of the Iowa agricultural experiment
station, and says that our
rich lands and abundant feeds are well
suited to the economical production of
superior mutton, and It has been clearly
demonstrated that mutton sheep,
properly selected, can grow a large part
If not all, of the wool demanded for
iVmerlcan manufacturing.
Notwithstanding the apparent contraction
of our llocks. the sheep Industry
has been established on a more permanent
and lasting basis. This has
been done by making mutton the prJ
mary consiuerauon una wooi incioeniil,
Instead of the reverse, as lins genorllly
been the cane heretofore.
The results of a number of Investigations
conducted at the experiment
stations, which shed new light on thu
problems of sheep feeding, are given.
Among these are cost of producing
mutton, relative coat of producing
mutton and beef, food consumed per
1,000 pounds of live weight, and advantlges
of finishing at an early uge.
Other topics discussed are: Lambs
preferred in the markets, method of
cutting mutton, range lamb feeding,
Ihe vnlue of Improved blood, what conJtltntfs
a good sheep, and essentials of
1 good lleece.
The bulletin contains eighteen Illustrations,

The bears secured the upper hand In
the trading to-day and accomplished a
downward jange of prices, which gave
the appearance of extremo weakness to
the market at one time'during the day.
But what with the Initial rise in prices
and the rally on covering after the drop,
net changes are email In cases, and
there Is a fair sprinkling of gains all
uiruugn me usi. me market opened
with an upward movement and with
more show of animation In tho buying
than has been the case tor some time
past. The foreign stock markets reflect
a much more cheerful frame of mind
over the political outlook In Prance and
there was a cessation of the selling
pressure from that source which has
been the feature on several days of thlB
week. The railroad, the grangers moved
upwards smartly and very conspicuous
gains were shown by a number of the
Vanderbllt stocks, New York Central,
Northwestern and St. Paul & Omaha
rising from 1% to 4 points. Pittsburgh,
Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis also rernvnrnil
nnlntn nri?<> i n
droop. There was good buying of some
of the leading specialties, the tobacco
stocks rallying briskly from yesterday's
extreme weakness and Sugar and
Broklyn Transit being well taken.
With the exception of the drop In
American Spirits and Standard Distributing
on the announced combination in
that trade there was apparently no
weak spot In the market and It looked
as though the bears had exhausted their
resources and abandoned their campaign.
But very marked weakness soon
developed In Federal Steel and quickly
Involved other Flowers stocks, notably
Brooklyn Transit and People's Gas, as
well as Sugar, Metropolitan Street Railway,
Tennessee Coal, Rubber, Consolidated
Gas, Reading ilrst preferred and
other specialties. Extreme declines In
Sugar 4%; Federal Steel 3%; Brooklyn
Transit and Consolidated Gas 2%, and
Manhattan, People's Gas and Metropolitan
Street Railway 2 points or over.
The "Vanderbllts, the Tobacco stocks
and many of the railroads held pretty
firm but the grangers yielded a point
or over, though their declines on the
day are only fractional. There was
considerable activity on the decline and
more appearance of liquidation by the
tired holders than has been apparent
before this week. The late selling
movement was based on apprehensions
expressed Dy ine Dears or very Heavy
exports of gold on Saturday, some of
the estimates put out for eltect ranged
as high as $10,000,000, though the only
announcement was of an engagement of
12,000,000. Ah a matter of fact the rate
for Sterling exchange eased off &c for
sight bills, the rate for money In London
showed an easier tendency and the
relaxation of the strained political situation
In France relieved apprehension
of a decrease on this country's gold reserve.
The Bank of England has Increased
its gold reserve over $2,300,000 v
during the week and contracted its :
loans over $2,600,000, while the Bank of
France has added to Its gold stock over
$3,500,000 and has contracted Its loans
$6,140,000 In the same time. Both Instl- :
tutions have thus strengthened themselves
materially and thus reduced- the
pressure on New York for gold. The
market closed Jirm at the rally caused
by covering of shorts.
There were one of two yielding spots ,

The opening In wheat,-although quiet
to a marked degree, was characterized
by a good deal of atrcnglh, September
starting at 7GVi<J?7(i%c, ngnlnst yesterday's
closing price of Tfitfi'TC^c.
The most notable feature of the early
news was a %d advance at Liverpool,
Minneapolis and Duluth reported arrivals
of 535 cars, compared with -117 last
week and f>2 a your ago. Chicago received
110 cars, six of which wero contract
quality. There were a good many
foreign buying orders executed around
the opening. Ha Ins In France, wheru t
harvesting Is In progress, were reported,
and private Russian advices were
to the effect that the rains in that
country came too late to be of material
benefit. Total receipts at primary
points amounted to 942,000 bushels,
against 87,000 bushels last year. September
touched 75W,c immediately after
the opening, then slowly advanced to
76,,2C. After noon the market became
much stronger and more active, influenced
by enormous cash and export
business. At Chicago GS5.000 bushels
was worked, all No. t Northern spring,
while New York and Baltimore reported
a total of 185 loads. Crop damage reports
from Michigan, Kansas and Nebraska
also Altered In during the after*
noon, adding their Influence toward the
strengthening of the market. September
advanced to 77c, shortly before the
close, und 76?ic was bid as the closing
bell rang. ,
Corn, though not especially active,
was firm, in spite of large receipts, 795
cars and favorable weather. The export
cash demand, dull of late, was
large, sales being put at nearly 1,500,000
bushels. The market was also helped
by the announced cut In grain rates
to the seaboard. September ranged
from 34%c to 34%@35c and closed
%c higher at 34"fec.
Oats were quiet, but strong, the Influence
being much the sume as in
corn. The cash demand was good, and

Provisions were heavy all day on
large hog receipts. Selling was general,
though not on a large scale. At
