ZING MALIATOA ASKS FOR AID TlioCnlted Stilton iiut Reprenoiidld at llie Inlands by a War Vesxol -The Sit uation Critical. 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 tho rebellion. 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 alone. Adjourned!. MAY ESCAPE PUNISHMENT. Visalla, Cal., Juno 15. Rev.

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 to vote.' 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. G. A. R. ENCAMPMENT.

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.
