(By Telegraph lo Virginian-Pilot.) Washington, May 15.?Secretary Long to-day made public so much ot a re? cent report from Admiral Kautz upon Samoan affairs as touches the killing of a number of American sad irs by the Mataafa adherents near Apia on the fust of April. The report is an elaboration of the description of the affair which was ca? bled at the time by the Associated Press Itoni Auckland. No mention Is made at any point of the reported partici? pation In the affray of the German, Huffnngle, the manager of thej planta? tion where the light occurred. It Is shown that the failure of the ?'?lt gun to work properly was In a large men sure the cause of the American and British defeat. PROJECTED BY A BRITON. Admiral Kautz says the expedition was projected by Captain Sturdce, of the Porpoise. For several nights pre? ceding, the sentries had been tired upon by the natives and i; became in les sary to drive the aggressors away. Ad? miral Kautz says ihet it was tie opin? ion of all the olllccrs who had the mat? ter in charge that the force was ample to do the work without risk, especial? ly as it was to move out along the beach and return the same way. under the protection of the guns of n. m. s. Royalist, it is safe to say. says the Admiral, that after Lieutenants Frec inrin and Lnnsdnle had conferred to? gether, they did what they deemed best under the circumstances and the disaster that followed could not be foreseen. SURGEON LONG COMMENDED. Admiral Kautz appends the reports of the surviving ofticers of tie' expedi? tion, which weie transmitted by Cap? tain White, of the Philadelphia. In ibis letter of trniismlttnl the Captain commends in the strongest terms the work of Passed Assistant Surip-on <!. A* Long. He says: : "At times Will n the fire from the con? cealed natives was thickest, and at nil times, by his example, ho encouraged the young and Inexperienced in< n lo the proper performance of duty. On the completion of the work of his pro? fession he assumed command of our blue jackets nnd marched them to the United State's Consulate." HAPPENING <>X ALL FOOLS' DAY. Captain White, describes at some length the happenings of April l, as gathered from a close examination of the potty Officers and nu n i llgagi d in the light, lie says that several excur? sions had been made into the beach back of Apia during (he last ten days of maiad). Very few natives had hi u observed, nnd when Been they always th d when fired upon by the Colt auto? matic gun. Lieutenant Lnnsdnle set great store by the gun nnd frequently operated it himself. Says Captain White: LIEFTEX A XT LANSDALE. iuto appears t i have depended greatly upon the gun when the party was am? bushed on April 1- Twice it did not function nnd time was lost in over? hauling it, nnd great delay was con? sumed In trying to get it through the wire fence. Lieutenant Lnnsdnle was loath to abandon i:. but the lire was so galling that befi re he was wounded he was compelled to scatter the im? portant parts an.I leave it behind. Prudence led him to deploy Ids men in open order. The thicket was so dense that after the order for retreat was sounded It was not possible for the groups to render each other mutual support.
