ARE AGITATED
Over the Late Reports From
- Samoa.
COMMENT OF THE PRESS
Of London and Berlin is Not Radical
—Coolness is Counseled—
Officials Assigned
New York, April 13.—A dispatch to the
Herald from Berlin says: Up to a late
hour the lights burned in the foreign of
fice, where much agitation reigned dur
ing the afternoon owing to the latest news
from Samoa. The ambushing of the
American and English detachment by
Mataafa's warriors is taken here in the
most serious light. The dispatch which
reached the minister of state from Con
j sul Rose ^ *aken as exonerating Germans
^ any f nd *" tlle matte >; as , was at
I first feared might possibly be the case.
! This has removed the obstacles to Ger
many at once naming her commissioner
w ho, it is said, will be the first secretary
of the German embassy at Washington.
A personage in a position to speak au
! thoritatively says the reports in German
! papers that the German government put
in a claim for damages are untrue. All
such questions as that are entirely mat
ters for the consideration of the commis
sioners. All this Samoan trouble is a
small but wretched business, for which it
seems a terrible pity that 400,000 marks
worth of German property lias been dam
aged and lives of Ameiican and English
seamen have been needlessly sacrificed.
The foreign office has received several
dispatchs from the commander of the
cruiser Falke In which he makes no
mention of any disagreeable discussion
with Rear Admiral Kautz. The German
government takes this as sufficient
proof that all stories told on the subject
must therefore have been inventions of
persons interested in making trouble be
tween Germany and the United States.
VIEWS OFTHE
ENGLISH PRESS
WHILE THE EVENT WAS DEPLORA
RLE COOLNESS IS ALL THAT
IS NEEDED.
London, April 13.—The Daily News,
commenting editorially on the latest news
from Samoa, says: "Ambush and mutila
tion of tlie dead are the ordinary inci
dents of savage warfare, and ought not
to provoke any special acts of reprisal.
The ease, however, would be seriously j
complicated if it could be shown that the |
Germans actively aided or counseled the 1
enemy. Apart from that there is nothing
left to do but to keep cool and to hurry j
the joint commission. The American 1
government is determined to regard the!
matter with equanimity. The American 1
people have yet to be heard from. \V
can derive a melancholy
from the knowledge, knowing that, for
............
satisfaction '
r I
. , , , j
the first time since the war of Independ- ;
encr, British and American soldiers and
sailors have fought side by side in batiie. i
But even this is poor consolation in com
parison with the complications which
events have added to an intricate prob
lem. Justice bids us remember that we
are not yet in possession of the German
version and Emperor William, who has
displayed such anxiety to bring about an
adjustment of the difficulties, will be
most deeply concerned. In the mean
time let us hope that it will be the dispo
sition of all sides not to aggravate a very
serious situation."
The Daily Chronicle says:
"The question is whether, when one
power triis to overreach one or two oth
ers she can complain if she suffers a re
buff. There can be no question that when
local intrigues lead to the sacrifice of
white life the central power must
be held respo-nisi'ble. No- doubt
she will behave fairly enough but the
danger Is- that it will take v-.r.v little, af
ter the experience in the Philippines, to
blow itp a flame in the United States
which the German authorities will give
much to extinguish. As for our placid
selves, it is well to understand that we
are not going to undertake by a private
agreement to nullify the principles of a
decision by a majority of the special
commission."
The Daily Graphic, recalling "numer
ous occasions when Germany has ham
per? d the civilizing work of other na
tions," urges coolness in tIre pending in
vestigation and suggests that the best
way ont of the commission problem would
be to appoint an arbitrator.
The Daily Mail, hitherto a strong advo
cate of conciliating Germany, says:
"We are bound to admit that the Ger
man press and officials are pushing mat
ters rather far, but we look to Empeior
William's moderating influence to pre
vent further trouble." After alluding to
the "fraternity of valor between the Eng
lish and Americans on ihe battlefield" th»
Daily Mail says the greatest need for
these situation is» çool heads.
The Stanâarrl saysT
"It Is true that British and American
blood has been shed and _the British and
Amerk'ÄfVflags have been fired upAh. and •
- —
for this an account must be rendered. But
the larger question of a permanent set
tlement regarding Samoa and the possi
ble revision of the treaty reue., i
lure consideration. This qm-t
.one .tiirtf can be allowed in i \
'many.in a serious quarrel viin
ers with whom she has tin -no
son for wishing to remain mi
amity."
Tie Titres says:

the Spanish gunboats at Zamboanga,

to the effect that the fleet sailed for Ma

native crews of the vessels on hoard the
American steamer Butuan were convoyed
to Zamboanga by the United States
