Commissioners Will Be Empowered to
Deal With the Situation as It Finds
It and to Take Such Actions as Is
Necessary to Place Affairs of the
Island in a Peaceful Condition.
Washington, April 14. After hear
ing thia morning from the German and
British embassies, the' state department
was enabled to announce positively and
finally that the parties to the Berlin
treaty had agreed upon the instructions
to be given their Samoan commissioners
and that it was certain the commission
would leave San Francisco April 25.
The instructions to the commissioners
are identical, the three governments
having accepted a form which com
promises the differences which have
existed up to this time. The commis
sion will be empowered to deal with the
situation as it tinde it in the Samoan
islands upon its arrival. This applies
to the acta necessary to place the affairs
of the island in a peaceful-and satis
factory condition for the time being and

Samoan Matters Discussed.
Washington, April 14. The cabinet
meeting today was devoted principally
. to discussion of the Samoan question
and instructions tq the American com
missioners, and to the czar's department
- conference at The Hague.
A complete written report concerning
the preliminaries leading np to hostil
ities made the secretary of the navy by
Admiral Kautz was read in the cabinet
by Secretary Long. It throws some ad
ditional light upon the complication
prior to the admiral's arrival, the most
important fact brought out being that
the three consuls, American, British and
German, at the time of the admiral's
arrival at Apia had recojjnizeoVihe
revolutionists under Mataafa.
The uprising after Chief Jubtice
Chambers' decision in favor of Malietca
Tanus, the admiral indicates, was
fomented largely by the German consul,
who insisted upon recognizing Mataafa
aa king. Chaoa was threatened, and
the American and British residents
considered themselves in peril. A mas
sacre was feared, and under the circum
stances, the American and British con
suls joined with the Germans in recog
nizing the provisional government.
THEY RIDICULE IT.
Many People Ridicule the Idea of aa
Absolute Cure for Dyspepsia
and Stomach Troubles.
Ridicule, However, la Not Argument.

Stomach troubles are so common and
in most cases, so obstinate to cure that
people are apt to look with suspicion on
any remedy claiming to be a radical

bugged, especially in medicines.
This fear of being humbugged can be
carried too far, so far, in fact, that many
people suffer for years with weak diges

money in faithfully testing the claims
made of a preparation so reliable and
universally need as Stuart's Dyspepsia
Now Stuart's .Dyspepsia Tablets are
vastly different in one important respect
from ordinary proprietary medicines for
the reason that they are not a secret

their ingredients, but analysis shows
them to contain the natural digestive
forments, pure aseptic pepsin, the diges
tive acids, Golden Seal, bismuth, by-
drastia and nuz. They are not cathartic,
neither do they act powerfully on the
organ, but they cure indigestion on the
common eense plan of digesting the-food
eaten thoroughly before it has time to
ferment, sour and cause the mischief.
This is the only secret of their success. .
