I The following is a translation of a
j written speech prepared by Mataafa
and delivered on his behalf to the Sa
moan high commissioners, at the
united fono held at Mulinuu on Fri
day, the 14th day of July last:
I now address you all at this meet
ing, endorsing the past utterances
'which I have already made before the
My wish is with the unanimous senti
ment of all the chiefs and people of
our party that there shall be no oth
er King to be made in Samoa.
I am confident that this is the real
desire of a large majority of Samoans,
though there may be a small minority
who believe otherwise.
This small minority are merely led
astray by certain foreign officials, and
other evil-minded foreigners. But I
shall be very glad to hear it reported
to me officially by the three commis
sioners that they will remove those
evil persons from these islands of Sa
moa as these evil-disposed persons
wish to make a king of Samoa, and
speak seductive words to blind the
eyes of the Samoan people just to suit
their own mercenary purposes; and it
is ior tins reason mat tney win al
ways cause trouble in Samoa.
When the commissioners arrived in
Samoa it occurred to me as well as to
the Tumua and Pule that it would not
be profitable to again have a King in
I am certain that a better scheme
of government can be formed by which
Samoa will be peaceful. Let a' white
official be nominated as supreme lead
er (administrator) then peace shall
reign, and put an end to all wars in
This supreme leader (administrator)
should be firm and strong. He should
be a good man and act uprightly and
impartially to all people of Samoa.
As for myself, as well as the Tumua
and Pule, we pray that the commis
sioners will grant our wishes, that they
will now appoint the President as su
preme leader. We perceive that he is
kindly disposed to all Samoan people
and without partiality, so we consider
him to be a suitable person for that
appointment. Evil-minded whites say
that I was the cause of the recent war,
which is a base falsehood, and right-
thinking people openly declare that I
was not the cause of the war.
The good people and the large ma
jority of the Samoans duly elected me
as King of Samoa, "according to the
laws and customs of Samoa."
But certain of the evil whites
planned tricks and gave money to cer
tain Samoans for the purpose of mak
ing a King, font the making of a
King in such a manner could not be
right or proper, "according to the
laws and customs of Samoa," besides
which the laree maiority of the Sa
moans would never agree to it. Where
as, in the case of there being no King
there will be no further opportunity
nf intrierne afforded to those evil
Now I beseech you with all my
heart that vou will remove them far
away from Samoa, and not allow them
to stay any longer in the country.
I have already promised you, and I
now again declare "that I will do all
that is best, and carry out all instruc
tions for the preservation of peace and
good order among the people of Sa
moa," and this I shall continue to do,
when the commissioners , have depart
ed. I also pray that the commission
ers will assist me in preventing trou
bles that may again arise like those of
I am also desirous that the two ex
isting factions should be no longer
termed "The Tanu Party," or "The Ma
taafa Party," but should be called "Sa
moa in unity."
We heartilv render our sincorest
thanks to the high commissioners for
the fonos held by them in the different
districts of Samoa, where they de-
fin red their wish that Samoa should
It is also our hope that Samoa should
unite to live in peace and triemisnip
at all times, and to obey all the in
structions of the high commission.

DR. JOHN DEWEY
(Continued from Page 1.)
by mere physical conduct; he wants to
see some meaning to all things and he
gets this through his imagination. Of
course, the child reacts or acts what
his imagination suggests because he
likes to do it. Put a child to washing
dishes; he will do it for the reason
that it suggests play to him; could we
see what is passing in the child's mind
during this operation, we would have
revealed to us a little world of fan
tasy; it is the inner side of the child's
mind reacting the imagination it has
received in the washing of the dishes,
which is most important, and not the
literal act. When action becomes play
with the child, it is equally true that
his feelings and his imaginations, to
be free and thoroughly healthy from
any consideration of the morbid ought
to find outlet in activity, or in other
words, in play.
"In the continual telling of stories
to a child, the imagery side of its
mind becomes its safety valve for the
reaction. Naturally all a child's
thoughts lie so much nearer to his
feet and hands to express things; . the
child wishes to act out the stories
which it hears, and hence its power
to assimilate them and reproduce them
in. some form of activity. When the
child becomes surfeited with stories
and cannot reproduce them, he is get
ting mental dyspepsia. If too many
suggestions are brought into the child's
mind, his later period is anticipated
and he is called a blase child. In some
a craze for excitement of some kind
or other is found, and they become de
pendent upon this excitement, just as
an adult becomes dependent for a stim
ulant of an intoxicating sort.
"It is through the suggestion of
imagery that the skillful teacher can
always control the child during all
these earlier years of his life. That is
the rule by which the child's activities
are directed. A little boy fell down
on the pavement while running, strik
ing himself badly; another small boy
saw the episode and said: 'Did you
break your glasses?' The injured boy
hands to his head. This action was
a change from reality to imagery and
was followed at once by a change of
action, and it was a manifestation of
the child's powers of self-control. If
any one had called the attention of the
child to his powers of control, he would
not have put them to any use; it was
the mental change which brought his
will power into play. Suggest to a
crying child that a big man, or a sol
dier does not cry, and the image ap
peals to the child's mind, and the
change causes him to forget to cry.
"The faculty of telling 'lies' is often
times brought about in children by an
excitable imagination, and not from
any real desire to distort the truth.
Too much vivacity plays an important
part in telling 'lies.' Some of the
cases of this class of children are tran
sitory and the best way is to leave the
child alone and let him discern between
fact and fancy."
