Borne ^Likelihood of Another Clash Be tween thft Conflicting Interests—Present Indication* Are That Chief Justice Chambers Will Be Upheld—Four Op posed to the German Consul, Dr. Rose. WASHINGTON, March 24.—The Ger man ambassador, Dr. von Holleben, called at the state department yesterday to further confer with tho officials con cerning tho Samoan situation. The Berlin authorities have communicated very freely on the subject within the last few days, and as a rosulc of ex tended dispatches from the foreign of fice the ambassador has presented a long note, covering the latest phases of the case. It is understood that! the German advices confirm the arrival of Admiral Kautz and the convoking by him of a mooting of all tho officials on the J.th inst. The German view is evidently one of apprehension lest seri ous results may grow out of the meet ing, in which event tho German view is that the responsibilities should be borno by those bringing about tho meeting. Further than tl^is, questions are arising as to the extent of authority of the Brit i.sh aud American consuls, acting to gether, to do anything without the con currence of Consul Rose of Germany.' Admiral Kautz has sustained fully the actions of the United States consul, Luther Osborn, and the chief justice himself, so far as his investigations have gone. It also appears that these conclusions are in exact accord with those reaohed by the British naval com mander, Captain Sturdy of the Por poise, who was present at Apia during the outbreak, and of Mr. Maxse, the British consul at Apia, who was also a participant. Thus there is an array of four witnesses combined in their testi mony, while opposed to them is the German consul, Dr. Rose. -It is manifestly impossible for the United States to discredit its represent ative, the chief justice, or for the Brit ish government to repudiate Mr. Maxse, in view of the weight-of the testimony iii their favor, GO that a practical dead lock has been reached so far as this matter of changing the representation of the three powers at Apia is concerned. These conditions lead to the belief that there is some danger of the repudi ation of the troaty of Berlin, and in the present temper of tho parties it would not bo surprising if this happened without an attempt on their part to re place it, although it is, of course, be lieved that even in that event some manner of modus vivendi will be pro vided to prevent another such clash be tween the conflicting interests as hap pened ten years ago, resulting in the treaty of Berlin. John Sherman Still Gaiuingv SANTIAGO, March 24.—John Sherman is feeling very much better and his physicians regard his condition as much improved. During a part of the after noon he silt on tho deck of the Paris, viewing Sautiugo. The United States cruiser Chicago is expected here by day break and Mr. Sherman will be imme diately transferred to her. The anxiety of his relatives on the Paris is now vir tually at an end. The United States transport Crook, formerly the Roumanian, her colors half-mast, with her mournful cargo of dead heroes, the remains of those who were killed or died at Santiago, steamed slowly out of the harbor yesterday. Famine In Kussliu ST. PETEKSUUUG, March 24.—Tho newspapers of the city publish pitiable accounts of tho condition of the so called famine districts of Russia, espe cially Samara, in the eastern part of European Russia. The efforts of the Red Cross society have staved off the horrors of actual starvation, but the so ciety's funds are almost exhausted, and tho dire distress compelling the con sumption of all kinds of garbage, has produced an epidemic of terrible mor tality, with typhus, scurvy and other pestilential diseases. The peasants are compelled to sell everything, and are living in cold, damp and filthy cabins. Cold Weather Killn Clover. HARLAN*, la., March 24.—Farmers her.' ary generally of the opinion that ail clowr bur that of the present year has been killed by tho severe winter.

S«groi« Are Fleeing For Tlielr Llrei and OtherN Are Kxpected to Be Killed—In teuNe Excitement In the Community Growing Out of the Lynching of General Duckett. TEXARICANA, Ark., March 24.—A race war is on in Little River county, and during the past 48 hours an indefinite number of negroes have met their death at tho hands of an infuriated white pop ulation. Seven are known to have been lynched, shot to death or slain in some manner, and the work is not yet done. The bodies of the victims of the mob's vengeance are hanging to the limbs of trees in various parts of the county, strung up where overtaken, while that or' another was shot to death while try ing to escape and thrown, into a creek and left tl\ere. The couutry is in a state of most intense excitement. White men are collecting in mobs, heav ily armed and determined negroes are fleeing for rheir lives, and the commu nity is in an uproar. Tho exact num ber of negroes who have been summar ily dealt with or those who may yet fall into tho hands of the mob before or der is restored may never be known. Seven bodies have been found and other vii-rims are being hunted and will meet a similar fate when run to earth. The known dead to date arc: GKNKI:AL DUCKETT. EDWIN GOOIHYIX. ADAM KI.NU. JOMCIMI JONES. INKNJ.VMIX JONES. M. JONES. UNKNOWN MAN. Joe King and John Johnson were also taken in hand by mobs and whipped. They were afterward turned loose and have disappeared. The disturbances grew out of the lynching of a negro named General Duckett, near Richmond, in that coun ty, on Tuesday. Last Saturday a prom inent planter named James Stockton was murdered at his home near Rocky Comfort, by Duckett. The negro es caped at the time, but after remaining in hiding in the swamp until Tuesday, he surrendered, saying he had had nothing to eat since his flight. He was taken to Rocky Comfort and soon after his arrival there Sheriff Johuson and deputies started with him fr Rich mond. They were overtaken by 200 armed men who demanded the pris oner. Duckett was taken to the place where he had killed Stockton and after making a confession he was lynched. When the uesrro was taken to the George plantation, just beforo the start was made for Richmond, it seemed as if every man in ten miles had joined the mob and before the officer and prisoner could get started the whole country was aroused. After the lynch ing it was found that Duckett had fre quently tried to get the negroes in the county to join him in a race war against the whites. A few hours after he had killed Stockton he passed sev eral negroes at a farmhouse and told them he had killed one white man and if they would follow him he would kill more. It is now believed that the ne groes had banded for a race war. Duck ott's body was buried by the county, as the negroes refused to touch it. U'inilaiir Dead, 19j Miasm) 34. NEW YOUK, March 24.—Nineteen dead and !U missing is the record so far of the Windsor fire on Friday last. One more body was found today. This brings the list of unknown dead to nine. The fragments were dug up about 20 feet west of the annex on the Forty-seventh street side, in a part of the ruins where no other bodies or bones have been found. The remains consist simply of a portion of a spinal column with some of the ribs attached, apiece of the skull, and some small bones and charred flesh. Identification in this case, as in a large majority of the other bodies at tho morgue, will be impos sible. It is not likely that any of the bodies yet to be found will be recog nizable. Threo Nnsroes I*yiiclied. JACKSON, Miss., March 24.—Three negroes were taken from tho officers of the law and lynched by an armed mob near Silver City, in Yazoo county last Saturday morning. After being shot to death the bodies of tho victims were weighted with bundles of cotton bale ties and thrown into the Yazoo river. The negroes were Minor Wilson, C. C. Reed and Willis Boyd. They wero ringleaders of tho negroes in a race en counter on the Midnight plantation early last week,. NASHVILLE, March 24.—Tho little .•own of Liberty, in DeKalb county, is almost wiped oft' the map. A furious cyclone swept over it last night,wrench ing trees from their roots and felling houses in all directions. Tho Christian church, a handsome brick structure, was blown to pieces in the outset, and people wero _panio stricken. Damage to property in the storm's path is enor mous, but no fatalities are reported. Third,Death From Omaha Fire. OMAHA, March 24.—Mrs. Charles T. Williams, one of the victims of the re rent fire, died at 3 o'clock yesterday aft ernoon at Claikson hospital. VOLUME XXXIV NO. 23 r.USO SUCCEEDS GOMEZ Cuban Assembly Elects Him Commander-in-Chief of Army. WITHHOLDS THE MUSTER ROLLS. Military Assembly Possesses the Boater of Cabnn Army, Thus Preventing Gomes and Brooke From Paying Off and Dis banding Insurgent Troops—Payment of Money May Be Long Delayed. HAVANA, March 24.—The executive committee of the Cuban military assem bly, has appointed General Bartolome Maso, formerly president of the Cuban revolutionary government, commander in-chief of the Cuban, forces in the orient, or eastern provinces. It is reported that a secret meeting is in progress at the house of Senor Parra gas, whero the dissolution motion to be argued on Saturday is under prelimi nary consideration. Thb Cubans, Dias.rt Monteagudo, Robau, Nodarse, Betan-1 court and Peraza, who held a secret meeting last night after consulting their commands with refereuco to the course to be taken in tho controversy between Gome/, and the assembly, reported that they had .decided to accept the §3,000, 000 for the soldiers and also to help or ganize a new Cuban army of 10,000 under the American administration. Meanwhile tho Cuban muster rolls are not in the hands of General Brooke. They were last seen by an American officer in Guauabacoa, where they were in the possession of General Roloff, the Cuban inspector general. From his hands they were probably sent to thfc military assembly and if the assembly still possesses them the paymeiit can be indefinitely delayed merely by the with-, holding of the rolls from the American authorities. PLAN TO DEAL CRUSHING BLOW. General Dngiiffeiueut Looked For lu Ma* uilu Hefnre Many Days. MANILA, March 24.—-A general^qn- gagement with the rebel forces may^'be expected at any moment. On', every hand are the evidences of busy prepara tions to strike a final and crushing Islow. Regiments and commands are being shifted rapidly and placed at new points. The arrival of reinforcements on the transports Gaact and Sherman, with the Sheridan due in a few days", has given new -spirit to thp American forces. In addition telegraph and cable com munication has been again established over this and the other islands, and 'th# lines are well under tho control of Gen eral Otis, so that he can keep the entire section in hand. There are reports that the rebel cause is gaining adherents in tho northern end of the island. The general feeling among the na tives here in Manila, however, so far as it is given outward expression, is that of submission to the situation and many express a desire to have the Americans administer a quick, crushing blow tfo_, Aguinaldo. In the last three days there has been' little that resembled lighting along the linos, yet the great strain upon the men has been kept up. The rebels are heav ily massed in the trenches oppo site our lines on the north. "Lepors Will Own 7»Iolokai. SAN' FRANCISCO, March 24.—Rev. William H. Tubb will soon visit the leper settlement on tho island of Molo kai, as tho agent of a local improve ment club, and with the indorsement of Senator Dwyer, the author of the con current resolution adopted by the re cent legislature to convert Molokai into a national leper settlement. He will remain among the lepers for four months and will work in connection with a committee to be appointed by President McKinley to investigate the matter. There area number of lepers in the San Francisco pesthouse and the citizens are anxious to have them re moved to Molokai.
