THE SAMOAN
QUESTION
Will Probably be Settled in an
Amicable Manner.
KING OSCAR OF SWEDEN
Agreed Upon as Referee if the Joint
Commission Fails to Reach
an Understanding;
Washington, March 31.—A joint high
commission to settle the entire Samoan
trouble has been practically agreed upon
by the United States, British and Ger
man governments. Lord Salisbury's ab
sence from London alone delays the for
ma! acceptance by Great Britain,
though in his absence Sir Thomas San
derson and Mr. Villiers who are under
stood to be specially familiar with the
Samoan question, have approved the
plan for a commission The United
States has informally expressed its ap
proval and the formal acceptance, it is
learned from the best quarter , will
speedily follow.
As the proposition emanates with
Germany iter approval of the course is
assured. This high commission, it is
felt, affords a pacific solution to the
whole trouble at the moment when Sa
moan affairs began to look the most
threatening. The new plan has been
gone over by Secretary Hay and the
British and German ambassadors here
and its essential details worked out.
Each nation is to be represented by one
member of the commission. It is to have
practically unlimited authority, without,
the necessity of referring its decisions
back to the several governments for ap
proval. It is said the danger will be ob
viated of any further deadlocks and de
lay. Still another important provision
under consideration is that King Oscar
of Norway and Sweden shall be the um
pire in ease the three high commissioners
shouild fail to reach a determination. The
plan of inviting King Oscar to referee a
disagreement meets the approval of the
British and German authorities and
doubtless will be approved also by the
United States as a means of ensuring fi
nality of action.
King Oscar was agreed upon between
the United Staten and Great Britain as
a final arbitrator in connection with the
proposed Anglo-Saxon arbitration treaty,
as well as in the Venezuelan matter. Ho
is also mentioned in a treaty of Berlin as
the one to name a chief justice of Samoa
a
. ...... . -
in case the three signatory powers fail |
to agree on a chief justice. It was this ■
that led to the suggestion«! his name at 1
the present time to act as final arbitrator.
The expectation is that the sittings of the
commission will be in Samoa, where, for J
the time being, they will have complete
authority over the whole range of Sa- j
moan affairs, in order to restore order
|and establish affairs on a stable basis.
I It will require no treaty to bring the
I commission into existence, as the accept
He is a man of complete information on
Samoan and other Pacific islands sub
jects, as well as a man of political influ
ence. The United States and British com
missioners. it is believed, will be drawn
from the same high ranks, with a view,
however, to their information on interna
tional matters of this character rather
than their political standing.
Afi showing that the acute situation of
the Samoan affair is past, Baron Speck
von Sternberg, first secretary of the Ger
man embassy, left here tonight for New
York, whence he sails on the sixth for
London and Berlin. He has been, a most
active factor throughout the Samoan
controversy, having made that question a
special study and thus lining able to ren
der the ambassador material assistance.
His influence at all times has been to
ward maintaining the friendly relations
between the two countries ar.d overcom
ing the causes of Irritation. His trip to
London and Berlin has no significance
whatever in connection with Samoan af
fairs, but is on personal affaiis.

HANDSOME GIFT
FOR MISS GOULD
New York, April 1.—There will be pre
sented to Miss Helen M. Gould next week
a novel and handsome sift in the form
of an album containing' the autographs
of 3,000 soldiers and sailors of the United
States who fought in the recent war
with Spain. The idea of getting up an of
fering of this kind for Miss Gould origin
ated while the army and navy were in
and about Cuba, but the work of securing
the signatures is due to one man. The al- |
bum is 14 inches long, 11 inches wide and
3V 2 inches thick. The binding is of crush
ed levante. The front pages are hand
somely illuminated in colors and with
hand tooled decorations. The first page
which bears the United States 1 flag and
that of the Red Cross society, has the
following inscription: "Army, navy and
volunteer forces of the United States ser
vice. Testimonial to Miss Helen Miller j
Gould, New York City, N. Y.
Particular interest is attached to the
collection of autographs because of the j
rough appearance of many of them. The j
greater number were written in camp or
in hospitals and they show that the writ- |
ers were in many cases unable to o tain
nnvthino' hut the ordinary writing matei -
iala The most prominent autographs are
those of Maj. Gen. Joseph Wheeler and
Col. Theodore Roosevelt.

New York, April 1.—The Finnish-Amer

of ihe Sirtolaine, the Finnish local news
paper in Brooklyn, in order to discuss
further measures and report progress in
the agitation in this country directed
against the czar's recent decree to de

the Finns of Calumet, Mich., giving de
tails of the organization of a Finnish
committee, consisting mainly of lawyers,
doctors and professors of Finnish birth.
The committee reported the unanimous
decision to co-operate heartily with the

Finlanders througnout the middle west
