Mataafa Rclurus to Samoa Willi
ZING MALIATOA ASKS FOR AID
TlioCnlted Stilton iiut Reprenoiidld at llie
Inlands by a War Vesxol -The Sit
Associated Press. '
Washington, June 15. Secretary
Oreshom has received advices that war
Is imminent la the Samoan Islands, and
that a rebellion, has broken, out against
(the existing g-oveminefrit, of which
King Malietoa is head. Mataafa re
turned to- Samoa for the purpose of
regaining the throne. That his follow
ing is strong and menacing, is evident
by the fact that' the reigning king
has appealed to the representatives of
the tripartite alliance to protect him in
accordance with a treaty concluded be
tween the United States, Great Britain
and Germany, and assist him in drlV'
ing the usurperMataafa from the ter
ritory. The situation has reached a
critical stage, and the president and
Secretary Gresham are in frequent con
ference as to the policy this govern
ment should pursue in the matter. The
United States is pledged to assist in
preserving the autonomy of the islands,
but at present is hardly In a position to
do very much In that direction. Ger
many is the only member of the alli
ance represented at the islands by a
warship, but with the co-operation of
the representatives and citizens of oth
er governments, that vessel will be
sufficient to afford ample protection to
foreign interests on the Inland, even If
it 19 not capable to entirely suppress
VIEWING THE BODIES.
The Inquest on the Ford's Theater
Victims Begins Anew.
Washington, June 15. The new in
quest was Btarted today in the Ford
Theater . disaster. The old Jury was
summoned and they, with the coroner,
went to the cemetery and viewed the
body of Fredrick Loftus. . James L.
Parsons testified that he submitted a
bid for the work, but failed to get the
contract. When witness examined the
building in May he found no evidences
of Its being in 'an unsafe condition.
Witness stated the- work could have
been completed in safety had the floors
been Bhored up. .He did not consider
the work properly done. The specifica
tions fof the work were read, and at
the clause, "the contractor i shall
liable for nil dnmnge done to-the build
ing," there was a murmur of disap
proval. Edward Clark, an architect,
made an examination of the building in
1865 and in 1888 and thought it safe, but
would not undertake the work, without
shoring. . Thomas Bintwhistle, " district
building inspector, found the floors and
walls perfectly safe five years ago,
but considered the dlsastler due to the
absence of shoring. Francis Basse, the
building engineer who made the speci
fication for the electric light plant, tes
tified that he had no building experi
ence except in constructing a seven
room dwelling and archway. As far
oa he knew there was no superintend
ent of the work, but Colonel Alns-
worth visited the building nearly every
day, and witness Inspected the excava
tion dally, but saw no signs of shoring.
Cross-examined witness said he consid
ered himself competent to draw pains,
but noti competent to say how work
should be done. Affler recess two
builders and bricklayers were exam
ined. Thoy all agreed that the col
lapse was caused by the unskillful
character of the work. Captain Thoi j- -of
the war department, said he under
stood the preparation of the specifica
tions was supervised .by Alnsworth
MAY ESCAPE PUNISHMENT.

Reams will appear in the supreme
court at Victoria, B. C, tomorrow, but
there is likely to be a further adjourn
ment. Those who know state It i

dence that would warrant the surren
der of Reams to Sheriff Warfleld of

- GREAT DAY AT THE FAIR.
Chicago, June 15. Today was a big
day at Jackson park. First and forer
most II) is "German day," then It Is
"Indiana day," and last, but not least,
it Is "Arkansas day." By 1ft o'clock it

president Harrison was present at the
THE GERMAN ELECTION.
Gains Made by the Socialist Democrats
Wealthy Classes Apathetic.
Berlin, June 15. Elections ore being
held In Germany today. It is almost
tropical here, and every where in the
country, which will bring out a heavy
vote in the rural districts. In Berlin
there Is an utter absence of excitement
the streets wearing an every-day ap
pearance. The wealthy classes appear
to be apathetic as to the outcome. At
noon, the workmen left the factories
and .walked ln groups to the voting
stations and deposited their ballots.
The socialists are displaying mora ac
tivity than any other political groups.
A number of women are distributing
electoral IJckefts. All the poetofflce
employes were; given a leave of absence
In Berlin not a single candidate
pledged to support the army bill gained
even the barron honor of reballot. The
prospects of government majorities
appear- to be vanishing. Roughly
-Vi speaking, the socialist vote shows a
great increase everywhere. The radi-
' cal vote has diminished greatly. Not
ten per cent of the votes cast in Berlin
favored the) army bill. The provincial
returns appear to be equally emphatic
in the same direction. The great suc
cess of the social democrats has caused
a profound sensation.
At, two o'clock this morning returns
from seventy-districts indicated thirty-
six have been carried by the parties op
posed to the army bill, fifteen have
been carried for the parties favoring
the bill, and nineteen are in doubt be
tween the government and the oppos
ing parties, with the canvass in a ma
jority of them strongly in favor of the
government. The government parties
lost three of their former seats, two
to the rlchterists on social democrats
as a Becond ballot shall decide, and one
to a' South German democrat. The
government won one Beat, and social
democrats won two Beats, besides hav
ing secured many chances for new vic
tories fn the second ballot.

Jackson, Oil., Tune 15. -The stage
from lone to Jackson was stopped by
a masked man tonight four miles from
here, and Michael Tovey, tho Wells
Fargo meracngje-, shot and Clinton
Radcllffe, the driver, slightly wounded.
Two horses were shot and had to be
left on the road. There was treasure
aboard, but tho highwayman got noth
ing as the stage horses wre frightened
and ran several hundred yards, leaving
the robber standing In the road. He
made off into the brush.
The stago had four passengers. In
side there were two ladles, and one on
the . outside, beside the driver, Clint
Radcllffe, and the Wells Fargo guard,
Mlclmel Tovey, who sat on the boot by
the driver. Tho robber was concealed
behind rocks on the right of the raid.
He wore no mask except that his face
was blackened. .The driver says no
word to halt was glven but some of
the passengers say they heard a call.
When oposlte to the place of conceal
ment, without the least' Intimation of
the bloody work about to be consu
mated, the discharge of a weapon was
heard and Tovey Instantly fell for
ward off his seat, dead. Radcllffe
grasped him by one hand as he was
falling and guided him to the boot,
thereby saving him from falling Into
the roadway. Six horses were attached
to the stage and the crack of the rifle
frightened them Into a gallop. The
robber seeing that he was likely to be
foiled In his design to capture ths
booty, fired again. This time the- ball
grazed lUuicllffes back, producing a
slight flesh wound. The, horses still
continued to run,- and the, highway
man, now standing in full view in the
road, fired-twice ugnin at the horses,
wounding ono each time. The stage
was swept along by the Impetus of the
Injured horses for two or three hun
dred yards, when the driver halted
and turned the two Injured animals
Into a field, and came on, bringing the
body of the murdered messenger to
Juckson, reaching here about seven
o'clock. The rubber mnda no effort to
