Religions Influences Thrown About tho Attendant Ceremonies The Governor Reserves All Power To Himself. APIA, Samoa. Sept. L The ceremonies Incidental to tbo appointment of Mataafa as high chief of Germanic Samoa took place at Mullnuu. The governor was tho master of ceremonies and the occasion was one long to bo romombored by tho natives of the Ger man colony. The Herald gives the J lowing fall and interesting account of the event: The chiefs who had been chosen by the governor to All positions of trust In the native government of Samoa were sworn In. At 3:30 p. m. those who had been invited assembled .at the governor's house -at Mullnuut but as this function was considered to be of a private nature, few if any of tho townspeople were present beyond the officials aud members of the governor's council. At tho above named hour the vice-governor with the members of tho council and officials left the residence of the governor and were followed shortly afterward by his excellency the governor, with his lordship Dr. Broyer, the Rev. W. Huckett, L. M. S and the RevB. C. Bleazard and M. Bembrick (Wesleyan Methodist), and took up h position on a raised platform which had been erected closo to the flagstaff, around which Mataafa with a largo number of chiefs had already assembled, also tho pupils of the Wesleyan Mothodlst College at Lufllufi and tho girls from tho Papauta and boys Irorn the L. M. S. Schools, Tuese, The ceremony commenced by the pupils from tho Lufllufi School singing a hymn. The governor then arose and through an interpreter addressed tho natives as follows: "It gives me much pleasure to see before me all the chiefs representing the great families who from the oldest times have been the rulers of tho Sa-moan iBlands of Upolu, Manono, Apo-lima and Savall. It Is well known by you that Samoa did not enjoy a gol government nor a strong government; neither did any lasting good will to one another exist formerly In this country. On the contrary, wars were continually being waged from . year to year. "On this account tho rulers of the three great powers agreed to hand over these Islands to his majesty the German emperor, that he might extend his protcctiqn over them. And all the high chiefs of Samoa expressed their thankfulness to the kaiser, to her majesty tho queen of England and to tho president of the United States of America for having completed tho arrangement, and they declared on various occasions their loyalty to the new ruler of these Islands. "And now his imperial majesty has been pleased to appoint mo to be his representative here, and has given mo Instructions which I did not fall to communicate to you, and which were as follows: '"The governor's authority shall be paramount in all Samoa, extending to all white persons and to yourselves, the Samoans. It is not the intention of the German government to force the Samoans to adopt our habits and customs; It desires to respect your old traditions and ways as far as these are not against the laws of Christianity and against the welfare and security of Individuals. Tho government his confidence In all the Samoans that they will bo able to govern themselves, subject to the complete control of the governor, and promise to make such laws and issue such orders as shall be for the benefit of the country and in con-, formlty, as stated above, with Samonn Ideas.

Then followed the chiefs from the other districts, who had also been chosen, they advancing and taking the prescribed oath in batches, at the conclusion of which each party was passeJ to his spiritual advisor, to whatever sect he belonged, so as to explain to them the course of the oath they had taken. The pupils of the Lufilnil School then sung a hymn, after which the governor presented Mataafa with a certificate of office -which had been drawn by Mr. Damm for him. The governor then presented the other chiefs who had also been sworn In with a certificate of office. The girls from the Papauta School then brought the ceremony to a close by singing the national anthem, "Heil Kaiser Dlr." Harvard's Stroke Here. C. L.

IAI WITNESS FOR TIE IEFENSL DECLARES THAT THE SHOOT- DTG WAS UNPROVOKED AND EXCUSELESS. Witness, Being Ordered to Shoot, Did. So Twice, Once Into the-Air and Once' Into an Old Building. In the case against Captain Joseph Spencer the prosecution yesterday pat on its first witness other than a Japanese. Ex-Captain of Police Spillner the luna at Laysan, was the witness. His examination by Sheriff Brown developed the following story: On the morning of the 11th of August, Spillner had called the Japanese to work at 6 o'clock. Some of them went to the guano house and none of them went to the lighter to load it with the product of the island. Instead of going to work the lighter men sat down. He asked them if they were going to work and they said no. Captain Spencer's son told the nine men who were to do the lightering that if they would not work they mu3t go back to their quarters. It seems that the men in the guano house wanted the same pay as the lighter men and when they refused to work the men in the guano house also quit. All the Japs went back to their quarters. Captain Spencer saw that the men were not working and asked what was the matter. Spillner told him that they had been sent to their quarters by the captain's son. The captain went to the Japs and told them if they would not work they must go back to Honolulu. "When Captain Wilier of the Ceylon saw that the Japs would not work he proposed loading the vessel with the aid of the crew. The ship captain went out to the vessel and when he came back he brought two revolvers with him which he gave to Captain Spencer. Tanaka, the Japanese luna, after the Japs had been told they would be sent to Honolulu, told Captain Spencer that he thought there was going to be trouble. Ten or fifteen men went to Tanaka'ff room to see him and Captain Spencer seeing them there ordeied them out. Tanaka told Spencer that the Japs wanted rice. Spencer walked towards his house and was on a platform. The other white men were near, about fifteen feet away. The Japs were asking for rice and Spencer told Tanaka to tell four of them to come onto the platform where he was. He also said he would shoot the first man of the others that set his foot on the platform. The four men came to the platform and talked with Spencer through the luna. The Japs had no weapons or missiles of any kind in their hands. They wanted rice and had come to ask for it They also wanted extra pay. Spencer bad consented to give them rice and two days. When this had been granted, three days was asked for. Then Spencer shot twice and yelled to the others to shoot One of the Japs on the platform Jell and the witness said that after several shots had been fired Captain Spencer told them to stop shooting. He said that there had been no rush made on the captain before the shooting. When the firing began the Japs ran away. Spillner stated that when he was ordered to shoot he fired one shot into the air and the other into an empty house near by. He did not shoot at the Japs. He had seen Spencer shool and the captain's son and engineer also shot After the shooting the captain told witness that a watch must be kept all night for f,ear ot further trouble. The Japs were given no rice nor water onthe day of the shooting. Spillner testified .that he had never had any trouble with Captain Spencer, but that he had had trouble with the Japs during Spencer's absence from the island. The witness was turned over to Mr Kinney after the sheriff got through with him. For an hour and a half he was questioned. He stated in answer to questions put to him by the defendaafs attorney that Captain Spencer treated the Germans on, the Island worse than the Japs. Spencer was In the habit of treating Tanaka, the Japaaese luna. to. drinks. He never asked the others. He had no ill-feeling towards Speacer. He had never told the Japa, that Spencer-would make them workarer when he got back from Haaotela than: he ' (Speacer) did. ' -.

The Action of the Leader of the Fifth Criticised. 10YI TALKS AMVT IAHNMY. JACK ATKINSON AND BIS PAR. ABLE OF SIX KXN IN A BOAT. Warm Endorsement of Hon. S. If. Damon for the He Has Dons for Hawaii. George R. Carter is slated for temporary and permanent chairman of the coming republican Territorial convention. W. C Achl, the republican leader of the Fifth district is working for Carter's appointment "I don't see what Achl means," said J. H. Boyd yesterday to a Republican reporter. "When Achl got control of the Pifth district they, the minority, came to him and suggested J, B. Ather-ton for senator. Achl told them that Atherton could not be placet on the ticket, as it would jeopardize every republican nominee. And now Achi is working for Carter for chairman. "Every delegate ot the Fourth district," continued Mr Boyd after a suggestive pause, "is thinking about resigning In the Interest of harmony. We have beat the opposition fairly and we propose to stand by our colors. We propose to nominate at the coming republican convention a ticket that tho Hawaiians and the friends of can support If we can't do this we can 'join the independents. "There is a good deal of talk about buying the Hawaiians. Were they bought in the national reform movement In 1890? Were they bought again in 1S92? I think not, and they won't be bought in 1900. You can wager money on the boa races tomorrow, but don't you wager a dollar that the Hawaiians can be bought at the coining election. "1 am a republican, and as such, let me repeat I shall labor to nominate a ticket at the republican convention ntarvvm commands tae respect and support of the Hawaiians." A. L. C. Atkinson, familiarlv known as "Jack Atkinson," says that he Is an independent; that as yet he hasn't af filiated with any political party. Many politicians in Jack's district huve been coquetting with JaJc, but without avail. "Politics," said Jack yesterday, to a Republican reporter, "is like a six-oared boat race. If you have five men in the crew who can row and row expertly, you will lose, the race if the sixth man be a passenger." "That's it exactly," said Clarence Crabbe, who was present. "The republicans dont't propose to carry any passengers on their ticket at the coming election." Republicans, democrats and Independents all speak of Hon. S. M. Damon as a suitable candidate for the legislature. At one time Mr. Damon was prominently mentioned in connection with the nomination for Congress, but he refused to allow his, name to go before the convention. A gentleman well acquaints! with Mr. Damon said yesterday: "Mr. Damon commands the respect of all classes anil races. He has stood not only by the country In her darkest hours, but by many citizens threatened with financial ruin; a gentleman whose Individuality and, character aad financial honor has made, In the -fast, the 65-cent dollar of Kalakaua redeemable, within a few cents of par, lit gold; a geatlemaa In whose Tianda the whole fiscal policy of the Hawafiaa government was Intrusted whea the coantry was In. the throes of revolution and civil .rebellion; who preserved the financial honorsof, Hawaii, paid all. of its obligations, promptly, aad when the New-lands annexation resolution was nas?ed had a surplus of more than $1,000,000 in the treasury of Ihe Republic." Secretary Hendry of the Territorial committee has writtea to Secretary Perry M. Heath, ef the repablican committee aad to Secretary D. H. Stine of the Leagae of Repablican Clubs, asking for literature to be distributed in Hawaii sad asking aboat the representation of the repahllcaa dabs of this Territory la the national convention of leagae dabs at the next meeting in 190L It Is perhaps Jost as well to remark that the democrats are not aearly as fast asleep as some persoas thiak aad that the leading members of the party, notably la Oaaa, hare, aot beea wholly ' ladUTereat to the recent political movements. The partr has polltlcil headqaarters sad. aamereW have beea held lately, aad while ao definite actieaaas beea. taken. The Repablican Is la poettloa to say that a piaa of eampaica has. beea practkalrr decided apoa. A meetiag o Ihe" democracy will probably be held dariag Qtt comlag week; at which the date fer the keldlaf t th Territorial ventioa will be agreed on. The convention will be held here. The enemy Is needlessly excited about the lack of harmoay la our party," said a leading democrat yesterday. "The democratic parry will go into the campaign thoroughly united and well come very near knowing what we're doing, despite the .flings of the Advertiser and the Star. The leading democrats do not date their citizenship here from yesterday or Iastjnoath. They understand factions, cliques, parties and men and do not seek, republican advice. Put down another thing that some people will be greatly surprised at the democratic vote white vote, I mean. There has been a very Urge Influx ot democrats, I tell you. We are surprised ourselves at the number ot new-comers that are making themselves known, and it is not all well with many men. who have been considered republicans. I have an Idea thatHawaifs will be full of surprises in a political way next fall." "What ot a congressman?" asked the reporter. , "Oh, I guess we will find a candidate that will be respectable, able and sure to command the esteem of the Hawaiian and equally his associates In Congress should he be elected. Do you think a man like S. M. Damon would command attention and votes?" The reporter thought he certainly would, but, "Would Mr. Damon accept such a nomination?" "Mr. Damon is a loyal and patriotic man. He Is perhaps our foremost citizen. He is substantial, able, honest No man in Hawaii is more public-spirited. I do not speak for him, now, mind you, but If the nomination for delegate to Congress should come to Sam Damon with any degree of unanimity and in a way to convince him that Hawaii needed him In Washington, I have no doubt he would make the sacrifice a personal and a business sacrifice and would accept And wouldn't ha be an Ideal representative?" Registration Closed Here Last Evening. Two Thousand Eight Hundred and Sixty-Two Register Twenty-Two Hundred Are Natives. Eegistration for Honolulu dosed at 8 o dock last evening to bo reopened on Tuesday, September 25th, at 10 o'clock in the morning, when daily sessions will bo held, Sundays exceDted. until October 10th, when all registra tion closes.
