CISION CAUSED IT
Upon Being Denied the Right to Sit on
the Throne, Mataafa Gathers His
Army and Sets Out on a Cam
paign of Devastation.
San Fkancisco, Jan, IS. A cable
gram to the Call from Auckland, New
Zealand, under date of January 17, says:
"When the steamship Alameda left
Alpia, January 12, a revolution had
broken out on the Samoan islands and
was being waged with much bloodshed
and great destruction of property. The
warships Falke and Porpoise, the latter
in command of Captain Sturdee, were
then at the islands and were taking
part in suppressing the rising.
On December 31 Chief Justice Cham
bers decided in favor of Mahetoa Tanu,
claiming Mataafa was barred by the
treaty of Berlin, January 1. Five
thousand of Mataafa's followers rose in
rebellion and defeated two thousand of
Malletoa'a forces, ambushing them, kill
ing 13 natives and wounding many.
The rebels have burned 400 houses
and razed towns on Upolu. Breadfruit
trees have been cut down in many
places. Foreigners are'uninjured.

The three consuls have signed procla
mations recognizing Mataafa's party as
the provisional government pending in
structions from the powers, with Presi
dent Raffell as executive head.
On the 5th RafFell proclamed the
supreme court closed, and took posses
sion, declaring himself chief justice. He
asked Mataafa for 500 men and was re
fused. The Britiah and American consuls
united in a strong protest against the
action of the president of the municipal
council. On the 7th Captain Sturdee,
of the Porpois, and two consuls de
clared the action illegal. The Porpois
cleared for action and lauded a force of
marines. This force was unopposed. It
took possession of the court, and Cham
bers was reinstalled and the British and
American flags hoisted over Chambers'
house and the courthouee. The pro
visional government wrote Sturdee on
the 12th that it would seiza Maletoa and'
take Tamasee off the Porpois by force if
necessary to deprive them of their title
and desert them. Chambers is residing
on the Porpois. The Falke is inactive.
The British and American consuls have
protested against any infringement of
the Berlin treaty. British residents have
taken refuge in the consulate and Amer

Melbourne, Victoria, Jan. IS Advices
received from Samoa today under date
of January 12 say there has been fight
ing over the decision of Chief Justice
Chambers in favor of Malietoa Tanus,
one of the candidates to the. throne in
succession to the late King Malietoa.
In addition it says native followers of
Mataaf's the rival aspirant to the king
ship, were victorious. Seventy-three
men were killed and wounded.
Disastrous Result of the Breaking of a
Dam at Cleveland A Splendid
Bridge Swept Away.
Cleveland, O , Jan. 18. About 1:15
this morning a dam under the Wilson
avenue bridge gave way. Back of the
dam is a body of water a mile and a half
long, hundreds of feet wide and in placee
twenty-five to thirty feet deep.
The break in the dam has allowed tor
rents of water to pour down oh - the fiats
below it. The property loss is already
large, and if the entire dam gives way,
which seems inevitable, it will be enor-
mouB. AXone the line whence the flood
must flow are the big plants of the
Standard Oil Company, the Cleveland
Paper Mills, the Flick slaughter-house,
and other manufacturing planter. There
are but few people living in the track of
the flood, and these were all warned and
sought safety on higher ground.
The cause of the flood is the recent
heavy rains, the melting of enow from
the hillsides, and pond of several
acres overflowing. Streams of several
miles up the galley have added their
quota of waer.
At 3 o'clock the right pier of the bridge
fell. The Wilson-avenue bridge is a
structure 700 feet long, and has been
built but a few months. It cost $350,
000. The break in the dam, which was an
unsubstantial mass of earth, occurred
while thirty men were at work on the
artificial canal .being eunk to allow the

outlet. These men escaped without one

Shortly after 10 o'clock the bridge wps
swept away. ,
At noon it was believed no further
damage from the flood would result. The
water had fallen twelve feet.
Stockmen Settle Their Differences.
North Yakima, Wash., Jan. 17.
Ok'er 150 sheep and cattle men of Yaki
ma, Kittitas and Klickitat counties were
here today to meet Superintendent
Cloes, of the forest resei ve, and make
applications fur grazing lands for the
coming season. Some differences hav
ing arisen as to the allotments for sheep
and cattle, a meeting was called at the
Yakima hotel this afternoon to discuss
the matter. A committee of ten was ap
pointed and lands were set aside for the
cattle men. The report of the com
mittee was accepted, and all differences
settled amicably, with very little de
bate. The rapid growth of the . stock
raising industry in Central Washington
is shown by the fact that men repre
senting nearly 250,000 sheep and over
5000 cattle were here to apply for allot
ments for grazing lands. .
Handy's Body Reported Found.

circulation that the body of A. K. Han
dy, who was lost in the coast mountains
December 30, has been found, and that

Pendleton, Jan. 17. Today in Re
corder Maloney's office were filed records
of fire placer mining claims, which have
been located at Maxwell station, on the
Umatilla river, forty miles above here,
and five miles below the town of Uma

Maxwell on a prospecting tour, having

For years it has been known that
gold existed in the millions of tons of
sand scattered all along the , Columbia
and Snake rivers tor hundreds of miles
on either side and in the beds of both
rivers. This gold is fine and it is hard
to eeparate from the sand. It will not
be extravagance to assert that millions
of dollars' worth of the yellow 'metal lie
in these sands. But it cannot be sepa
