AGUINALDO'S ACTS CALL FOR INTERFERENCE BY AMERICANS EXPEDITION ORGANIZED TO SEIZE THE SOUTHERN GROUP OF ISLANDS DEWEY IS ON THE LOCKOUT Two American Cruisers and a British Gunboat Have Been Ordered to Proceed to Cuba Associated Press Special Wire. 4> MANILA, Sept. 21—Unless cheekeS + 4, by the American forces in the Philip- + 4. pines, it seems more than, probable 4. 4 that the rebels under Agulnaldo Will + 4. soon have seized ail the southern 4" 4. islands of the group. The steamship 4 -4> Abbey has arrived off the west coast 4 -4> carrying a cargo of arms and ammu- 4" 4- nltton for Auginaldo's forces. After 4 -- landing these munitions of wair the 4 4. Abbey is to proceed to the southern 4 4. islands. She will carry a large force 4. 4 of rebel troops and these troops, who 4. 4, are now well armed, purpose attack- 4? 4, lng the Spanish garrisons of the 4 -4 islands to the south, and unless there 4. 4> is prompt interference, there seems 4 + little doubt that the expedition will 4 - 41 be successful. + 4, Alarming reports of conditions at 4 -- Cebu have been received. Thosq re- 4 -4> ports have resulted in the British 4 4, gunboat Rattler being ordered to that 4 4. point. It is also reported that Dewey 4 4. has ordered the Raleigh and Balti- 4. 4* more to proceed to Cebu. 4" 4, Stories of the attempt to poison 4 4. AguinaMb seem to be without foun- 4. 4. datlon. It is probable that thoy were 4. 4- gotten up for the purpose of arousing 4 1 4> the natives to greater enthusiasm. 4- Sailors for Dewey WASHINGTON*, Sept. 21.—(8y the As sociated Press). The navy department has ordered 400 sailors to be sent to Admiral Dewey's squadron at Manila. The men will be sent from San Francisco smi mer chant steamer. It Is the purpose of the department tn gather most of the men from the Pacific coast, but orders have been given to Lieutenant Commander Vail, In charge of the permanent naval recruiting station ln Chicago, to recruit 110 of the sailors there. This detail does not amount to a reinforcement of trie forces at Manila, for the men are to take the places of sailors whose terms of service have expired. Seaports Still Held MANILA, Sept. 21.—The report that the last Spanish garrison In the Island of Lu eon had surrendered Is premature. Tho Spaniards still hold seven seaports ln tbe Alliay province, the principal hemp dis trict. The disturbances have already re sulted ln a diminution In the output of Al bay hemp by 2"I0,000 bales, compared with Inst year's figures. Further fighting seems Imminent and unless peace Is concluded, the shortage will be doubled. Work for Paymasters WASHINGTON, Sept. 21.—A few days ago orders were issued directing the return to San Francisco from Manila of three pay- j musters, as lt was thought they were not needed ln the Philippines longer. The order was revoked today upon tho receipt of a telegram from Gene-ral Otis saying that the men could not be spared. He said that most of the paymasters In Manila were employed ln duties outside of the regular duties of paymasters. Major Whipple, tho chief paymaster, was auditor of the cor poration of Manila MaJ. Kellher wos pro vost marshal and ln charge of finances; Mn.ior Lord was in charge of the customs of Manila, and Major Kllhourne was em ployed In another Held capacity. This made lt impossible to send the three paymasters home. The Rueful Rios MADRID, Sept. 21.—Senor Montero Bios, president of the senate and member cf the Spanish peace commissi,,n. In an interview published today, is quoted as saying: "It Is a painful spectacle to see pfd It I clans on all sides throw* on each oth*r the blame for the disaster, the responsibility for which rests on all parties. I personally have always favored autonomy for Cuba, Spain being unable forcibly to maintain her sovereignty at such a great distance!." Continuing he said: "It Is useless to speak of our disasters. Has not the coun try accused all our governments of exhib iting too much weakness toward the T'n-'ted States? What Spain wanted was a man ready to sacrifice himself and who recog nized the Impossibility of war with a pow erful nation, especially after years of use less conflicts with Insurgents." The queen regent has signed the decree suspending Admiral Montejo and granting rrcirdon tn convicts who fought ns volun teers ln the wnr with the United States.

LOS ANGELES HERALD} THURSDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 22, 1898 ANNEXATION OF SAMOA NOT YET ACCOMPLISHED BUT IS NOT UNLIKELY GERMANY WANTS THE PLACE Civil War Growing Out of the Succes sion Campaign May Furnish a Good Excuse Associated Press Special Wire. I SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 21.—The steam ship Alameda from Sydney, Auckland, Apia, Honolulu, brought further particu lars concerning the death of King Malletoa The King's death was due to typhoid fever. He tiled on Monday, August 22. and was buried on the 24, a large number of natives find whites attending the funeral. Rev. S. J. E. Newell and J. Marriott, usslstcd by native pastors, conducted the funeral cere monies. I Shortly before his death Malletoa was re moved from Apia to Valllma, the residence Of the late Robert Louis Stevenson, which Is nt a considerable elevation on the slopes of Mount Vnca, where Stevenson was buried. The change from the sea beach to the more salubrious locality of Vnlllmn was expected to improve the old King's health, but he gradually snnk| anil died The aged monarch of Samoa was convinced that his time had come, and he accordingly resigned himself to this end with the fatal ism characteristic of the Polynesian races. In appearance Malletoa wns| a line look ing, stalwart man with a gray, grizzled mustache. According to a report current, it wos believed at Samoa that if H. M. S. Ringdove has not been at Apia the Germans would have hoisted the German flag there on Malletoa'S death and. have proclaimed the annexation of Snmoa. Malletoa leaves a daughter, an attract ive girl named Falmoa, who Is 1" or TS years of age. nnd who was educated at the London Missionary Society's school at Papauta, which Is near Apia. He also leaves a brother, an elderly chief, who lives at Apia. Speaking of Samoan affairs today, Purser Smith of the steamer Alameda saidt "There Is trouble expected there, and the Germans are bringing back to the Isl ands King Mataafa In a man-of-war. The English have a gunboat there, the Ring dove. The British, American and German consuls, the chief justice and the president ot the municipal council of Apia have formed themselves Into a hoard of control, pending the ekotlon of a successor to King Malletoa, who died August 22d. "Mataafa was deported hy the powers some years ago to the Union (TokeltO isl ands, to the northwest of Samoa, owing to his presence In Samoa being a disturb ing political element. He was induced to surrender himself to the powers on the understanding that lt was for the good of his people that he should go away. The exiled chief was conveyed to the Union group in a German man-of-war, together with several of his relatives antl friends. A recent telegram from Europe announced the likelihood of Mataafa being returned to Samoa, and this will no doubt be done, as the consequence of Malietoa Laupepa's death. Mataafa is popular in Samoa, an.i no doubt a large section of tho people would be ln favor of his appointment a3 king. "There are several opposing sections among the Samoan natives, one of the largest being headed by Tamasese. and lt Is said that each party has a nominee for the kingship. In view of these conflicting opinions, it will be seen that the position ot affairs In Samoa may again become very serious, and that civil war may as likely as not result between the rival parties. "During the war of 1888-89 the German authorities nominated the chief Tamasese as king, but the only authority ho exer cised was that hacked by German guns. Tamasese Is still ln Somoa. living at Aana. amongst the disaffected sections of which he Is the head. SAN JOSE POLITICS Inside History Comes Out in a Libel Suit SAX JOSE. Cal., Sept 21.—The libel suit of Jarman against Rea is progressing more rapidly so far than had been gener ally anticipated. Jarman was on the stand this morning for re-direct examina tion, and related some rather startling testimony. He, with four other members of the common council, went to the office of one member for a consultation over the appointment of firemen and policemen. Those present were Oeorge DittUS, Julius Krelg. R P Main, Richard Martin and himself (Jarman). Some one knocked at the door, whl"-h proved to be Rea. Ho came In laughing, with the remark: "I thought you fellows could get along without me " Then turning to Martin, Rea said: "What in hell are you doing here: you can't vote with these fellows. If you do. you will lose youl Job Tuesday, und dvn't fotget that liltl. financial obligation you are under to me " With this, Rea left and took Martin with him, but invited all to come to his house that afternoon,when he thought they could settle the matter satisfactorily. Accepting the Invitation.the then-Mayor, Austin, members of the Council John D. Mackenzie and one or two others, were thero. A list of names was submitted by Rea and Mackenzie for policemen and fire man. Jarman refused to accept the list, making objection to two or three individually. One policeman ar.d one fireman were especially objected to, because charges of misconduct were preferred against the fireman and the policemnn had been absent from duty hid days during the year, as stated by the Mayor. Witness said thnt Rea and Mackenzie declared that the fireman would have to go on as he was "worth fifty votes to us," and the policeman would also havo to go on as he was the brother of a council man. Witness' refusal to take the slate caused the enmity of Rea and his efforts to defeat Witness by slander. Much other inside history of alleged political management is being brought out SICK SOLDIERS One Yellow Fever Patient Brought From Cuba CAMP WIKOFF, Sept. 21. -The trans port Seguanca arrived today from Cuba with what was said to he one unmistakable rase of yellow fever.

HOURS AND WAGES Some Prospects of a Big Railroad Strike PITTSBURG, Sept. 21.—The Post says today that for some time past rumors of a big railroad strike have been circulated hut nothing could be learned until yester day, when it developed that the conductors and brnkemen of the roads entering Pitts burg want to be placed on an equality with their brethren In other parts of the coun try. To accomplish this object these two branches of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen yesterday presented to the offi cials of all railroads entering this city a scale of wages. An answer Is requested within thirty days. The demand calls for a ten-hour day with extra for every hour put In beyond thnt. The rate of wages asked Is as follows: Day conductors. $2.75; day brakemen, $2.50; night yard conductors. $2.90; night yard brake men, $2.70. Extra per hour: Day con ductors. 27' i cents: day brakemen, 25 cents; night conductors, 29 cents; night brakemen, 27 cents. The present wages are based on a 12-hour day.

The district for which the advance is asked extends east as far as Altoona and west to Ashtabula. Ninety-nine per cent of the conductors and brakemen ln this district are members of the Brotherhood, and they expect the companies to grant their demands without a strike being nec essary.

Other troops will move up and occupy these towns as soon as they are evacuated and the Spanish troops In posi tion will enter the city in order to be ready to embark on the arrival of the transports here. The resident! of Porto Rico and some of the Americans here are alarmed because the Spanish ships returning from Cuba stop at this port. They believe there Is danger of the introduction of yellow fever Into the Island from the Spanish steamer City of Cadiz, as the sick men on board her were too 111 to proceed and were brought ashore. Our commissioners will protest if there la a repetition of this. The volunteers have all been disbanded and the Spanish soldiers are engaged in dismantling the armories and barracks and in boxing guns and ammunition. They are rejoicing over the prospect of an early return to their homes. Rear Admiral Schley has refused to pur chase the coal stored here, and It may be purchased for the use of the United States army.

Y„ Sept. 21 A trestle 25 feet high, spanning part of a swamp traversed by the Philadelphia, Reading & New England Railroad, a mile west of Pine Plains, which is In Dutchess county, has sunk completely out of sight ln the bog.

On Sunday night the road bed was fourteen inches lower than on Saturday night and, on Monday night eight Inches lower than Sunday night.

THE NATIVES OF HAWAII NOT UNANIMOUS IN FAVOR OF ANNEXATION A Strong Faction Working for the Restoration of the Queen Under American Protection SAN FRANCISCO, Bept. 21.—The steam ship Alameda arrived today from Aus tralian points via Honolulu. Advices from the latter place under date of September 11 say that the Congressional Commission ers are Ilnishlng their work and expect to leave for Washington on September 23d. The commissioners ore now being deluged with petitions and memorials from the na tive Hawallans. The sentiment of the na tives appears to be divided. One faction desires the restoration of the Queen, while the other accepts the new order of things and asks for certain rights under the new form of government. The natives who favor the restoration held a mass-meeting on September 12 and adopted a memorial which was presented to the commissioners. The memorial alleges that the annexation treaty has failed and the Joint resolution Is Ineffective because It was not passed by tbe people of the Hawaiian Islands or their representatives in the Legislature. The memorial con cludes by asking that the constitutional government of January 18, 1893, be restored under the protection of tho United States of America. Among the speakers at the mass-meeting was Robert W. Wilcox, the revolutionist, who a few weeks ago took the oath of allegiance In order to qualify himself for a full pardon for past mis deeds. Pointing to the United States flag over the government building, he snld: "It Is useless to say that the flag over there will not come down again. It was up be fore and lt came down. It will be shown that the annexation vote will be carried through by a handful of foreigners. If America loves us. why were not Ha wallans placed on the commission. We rre not represented there. The next thing wo shall not he able to vote." The other faction of Hawallans also presented a memorial to the commission. This memorial asks for a Territorial form of government, with full rights for the natives and permission to make provis ion for ex-Queen Lllluoknlanl, Princess Kaiulnn! and Queen Dowager Kaplolanl.
