Ii MOS (Continued from First Page.) shall be called In, would be forwarded to them later- This German proposal does not meet with favor among the British Ofllcials, who have determined that the British commissioner, Mr. Eliot, shall hot leave until Iiis func? tions can be exactly defined. Lieutenant Freeman, killed in Samoa, is given in the British naval list as Lieutenant Angel II. Freeman, the senior lieutenant of the cruiser Tau ronga and, next to Captain Stuart. In command of the vessel. As chief lieu? tenant he was executive officer of the Tauranga. WARSHIPS ACCESSIBLE. The British Admiralty has a number of ships hot far from Samoa in the Australasian Islands, a special design of small cruiser being used in thai locality. The chief naval station oc- ] cessiblc to Samoa is on the China coast, where the Asiatic squadron embraces some of the largest warships In the British navy. In number, armament and tonnage the British ships on this station far exceed those <>f Germany or any other power.. The chief Gorman naval station m ar Samoa also is on the China coast, nt Klao Chou, where Admiral Prince Henry is in command. Admiral Dew ey's licet at Manila is the nearest as? semblage of American warships to Sa? moa. The- sail from Manila to Samoa is about fourteen flays. CAUTION ADVISED. Senator Davis, chairman of the Sen? ate Committee on Foreign Relations, was one of the earliest of the Presi? de nt's visitors to-day. When asked for hid views on the situation he said: ??Wo must be careful and not lose our heads. We must hot form an opinion until all facts are known." Representative Hull, of Iowa, chair? man of the House Military Committee, was also one of the President's visitors He said: "This government will not attempt to discredit our men there unless it is shown clearly that they are in the wrong. It Germany persists in her present course there may bo war. 1 do not believe this administration will allow Germany to run this government, as she seems to be trying to do now. In my section of the country the feel? ing has been strong agalnct Germany for six months. The people believe that Bhe was hostile to us in the war with Spain. The people are in such temper that they will not pi rmlt any trilling or hedging on the part of the United Slates. If there should he war I do not believe that all the European countries could or would stand against Groat Britain and the United States." Senator Thurston said Unit It would be pretty hard for three of the most en? lightened nations of the earth to have war over a few little Islands which are of no consequence. He considered the situation as somewhat grave. A BELLIGERENT SENATOR. | Senator Stewart said: Does Germany want to fight? If so. she may bo accommodated. We are a peaceful people, but we don't permit others to go around with chips on their shoulders." AS SEEN IN GERMANY. Berlin, April 1?.?The correspondent here of Ihe Associated Press has had tin interview with a Foreign Office offi? cial, who Is authorized to ?peak for the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Baron Von Buelow. lie said: "We have received several official dis? patches saying that the Tanu people for a fortnight past have been raiding and pillaging nround Apia, destroying mainly German property. They are armed with weapons furnished by the British. AMERICA AND ENGLAND BLAMED "We also re.ctdvfd to-day a dispatch from tin! commander of the Falko, con? firming the ambuscade and the loss of the Americans and English, substan? tially tallying with the dispatches of the Associated Press. The ambuscade may possibly have been on a German plantation, us marly all the property around Apia is German. The govern? ment regrets extremely the occurreii.-e. for which, however, it is In no way to blame. Such hostile encounters must naturally be expected when the Anglo American action in crowning Tanu has mad.- nine-tenths of the Samoam their enemies. It shows strongly how nec essary is the prompt departure of the commission with adequately full In? structions. Although tlie German com? missioner has not yet been formally appointed, he is ready to start for Sa Feedlns; the Fire. The most powerful cngiue must stop if the fires arc not fed. Man is the most won? derful piece of machinery in the world, yet no matter how strong and well-made his bodily frame may be, if the fire of life within him is not constantly fed his limbs and muscles become powerless and uscli ss. The reason men become helpless and diseased is because the food they cat, which is the fuel of life, is not properly digested and appropriated by the stomach anil nutritive organs. It is not completely transformed into the sttength and working power which is to man what steam is to the engine. That wonderful power-making "Golden Medical Discovery." invented by Dr. K. V. Pierce, chief consulting physician of the Invalids' Hotel and Surcttcal Institute, of Buffalo. N. Y., imbues the human diges? tive juices and blood-making glands with capacity to extract abundant nourishment from the food. It builds up oijr.inic tissue, nerve fiber, hard muscular Resh and wotk ing force. It gives a man steam. What-it did for Mr. V. <? Hughes, of Junction. Hiinterdon Co., N. J.. I?given in his own words. He write.: "I received your kind lc-tltr. a ad in reply would uy that mine was a l ad ca?e of kidn'v'ami liver trouble, uid that six '.kittles of Dr Mercc's Golden Medical nis.-overy and four bottles of little ? Pellet?' effected a complete cure. It is well known tliut almost every engineer U troubled more or lc*s with kidney trouble, especi? ally on our fast expr?-* trains, I tun one hun? dred and forty-four niiV* on thefe trams every day in the week, and have had no return of the trouble since taking the remedies, nearly three l .years ago." moa within hnlf an hour of the three governments clearly defining the mode of operation and the powers of the commission. Why docs England ne< d lessly delay agreeing? it Is the only way to prevent ceaseless bloodshed In Samoa. Unless the commission star:.-; soon such encounters may reoccur any day. GERMANY IS BLAMELESS. "Of course, now that fresh blood has been spilled, the excitement of the Americans and British may increase. Hut Germany is blameless. The same thing happened to our men in ISSS. The Samosns also cut off the heads of the German victims then. This is one of the Samoans* pleasant habits, if Admiral Kautz bad the sower tv> re-establish peace all might be well. Hut. he needs a much stronger force than Is cow available under his and the Brlttah command at Apia to subdue Mataafa and his warlike hosts." An official dispatch from Apia, dated April 5th. savs: "The British have been bombarding a Samoan village dally and the ad? herents of both Tanu and Mataafa are plundering foreign property. "On April 1st an Annlo-Amerlean landing party of seventy men fell Into an ambuscade near Vallelo ('he dis? patches of the Associated Tress from Apia had it Vaslete.) Three officers v ore killed and two light guns captur? ed. The warships afterward renewed the bombardment.'' WHAT GERMANY MAY DO. The action of Great Britain in order? ing two more warships to Samoa at? tracted considerably attention here, and it was stated that if the British ships are so reinforced Germany would take similar steps t<> augment her naval rep? resentation in those waters to meet any possible contingencies. So far. however, no action looking to reinforcing the United States naval ;" trees there has been taken. S*crotary Long was Informed of Great Britain's action late to-night, but said It was his belief that there was adequate rep? resentation of the United States there now. and no more vessels woul<2?i> dis pa;died to Samoa ujvjesa further im? portant developments occur. The Phil? adelphia, he said, with the two British ships, was fully able to cope with the situation in the present light of events. Admiral Kaut-/, has not requested any reinforcements, and his recommenda? tion under ordinary Circumstances Would be awaited.

TAG ALO OPPRESS!! )N. The commercial 11 is3es urge the Head? ing of detachments of American troops, each numbering about one hundred men, to take possession of the towns In 'lie southern provinces and in the Visayas islands, now held by small bands of Tagolos. They declare the na? tives lind the Tagalo oppression worse than Spanish oppression, and that they will welcome the Americans. The case of the inhnbltatnls of G?bat, in the province of Sorsogaa, is cited as a typi? cal Instance. The Spanish taxes amounted t<> HS.00O. hut the rehel Ta gajos extort $112.000 from the people of Ou bat. Aguinaldo's brothcr-lh-lnw, the pro? vincial governor, is said in be despoil? ing the people unmercifully. GENERAL LUNA RECALLED. General Luna, who retired from the command of the Filipino forces nnd who was editing a newspaper at San Francisco del Monte, his retirement be? ing due to the fact that the Filipinos rebelled at his rigid discipline, has been re-called to the command. This is taken as showing that the rebel army is only kept together by harsh mens u res. OFFICIAL REPORTS. Washington, April 12.?The following cablegram has been received at the War Department: -Manila. April 12. Adjutant General, Washington: Yesterday, In the lake region, Lawton pursued insurgents eastward from Santa Cruz, dispersing them. Captured! all the larger vessels used in the lake' trade and Spanish gunboats. lie is now endeavoring to pass them from river where concealed into lake. Wheaton drove enemy ten miles to j eastward of railway lino of communi? cations with M dolos. Lawton's and Whcaton's casualties few and slight. Enemy made no stand. Notified by Spain that she will evacuate Mlndora and Polo soon. OTIS. It Is more than likely thru the word "Polo" In the above dispatch should read "Jolo," which Is the designation sometimes given the Sulu group Of Is? lands. Spain has had a garrison at Mindoro and .Udo, and it is probable that t^he is now ready to remove her soldiers. Washington. April 12.?The following dispatch has been received at the Wat Department: Manila, April 12. Adjutant General. Washington: Relief arrived, all well. OTIS. THK JUNTA AGAIN PROCLAIMS. Hong Kong. April 12.?The Filipino junta here regards the proclamation of the United States-Philippines commls-1 sion as being objectlonnl, and has Is-, sued a grandiloquent statement to the] effect that it is a "tissue of generalities, bristles with Pharisaism and cant, vaguely promises much and grants nothing t<> the Filipinos, who ore tired of promises and surfeited by Spanish promises similar to the Americans." Continuing, the statement reads: "The proclamation proves that the fair promises of Independence under a protectorate nnd President McKinlcy's declaration of the objects of the Span? ish war were only a mask of humanl tartanlsm to cover the real int nti n. The invitation of the United States Philippine commissioners to the Fili? pinos to meet them for an exchange of views Is meaningless, us. during the hostilities, the representative Filipinos are necessarily absent from Manila, assisting the struggle for independence. "The Filipinos continue to ro.-ist a violent and aggressive usurpation, not because they expect a complete victory, but to emphasize their rights and to protest against a ruthless invasion. "We emphatli ally deny that the alms of the American Government has been misinterpreted. The proclamation of General Otis showed those aims clearly. We also deny the legality of the sale of sovereignty over the Philippines by Spain, and we reiterate, posi^vely, that the Americans began the hostilities on February 4th." After Six Years of Intense Suffering, Promptly Cured I. S. S. Obstinate sores and ulcers which refuse to heal under ordinary treat? ment soon become chronic and deep seated, and are a suro sij^n that tho rjy o p C entire circulation is in a depraved condition. They uj oi Oi Oi aro a severe drain upon the system, and aro con? stantly sapping away the vitality. In every case tho poison must bo eliminated from tho blood, and no amount of external treatment can have any offect. There is no uncertainty about the morits of S. S. S. ; overy claim made for it is backed up strongly by convineinu: testimony of those who have been cured by it and know of its virtues by experience. Mr. L. .T. Clark, of Orange Court house, Va.,writes: " For six venrs I hail an obstinate, running ulcer on my anklc, which at times caused me intense Buffering. I was &o disabled for a Ions while that I was wholly unfit for business. One of the best doctors treated nie constantly but diil mo no pood. I then tried various blood remedies, ?without tho least benefit. S. S. S was so highly recom? mended that I concluded to try it, nnd the effect was wonderful. It seemed to get right at the seat of the ?03 disease and force the poison out, and I w;t3 soon com- '?SB pletcly cured." Swift's Specific? 8.
