DEADLOCK IN SAMOA.
America and England Stand
Together Against Germany.
MAYTERMINATE BERLIN TREATY.
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.

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.

teuNe Excitement In the Community
Growing Out of the Lynching of General
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:
Joe King and John Johnson were also
taken in hand by mobs and whipped.
They were afterward turned loose and
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

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

early last week,.
NASHVILLE, March 24.—Tho little

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

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

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
