C O U N T Y , O R EG O N , THE SAMOAN F R ID A Y , Ha Washington, March 18. — Admiral Kautz has reported the arrival at Apia of the cruiser Philadelphia Match 6. He made no mention of political affairs. As negotiations are now in piogress between the United Btates, O ieat Britain and Germany, leapectiug the kingly succession in Samoa, any action of the soealled provisional government th a t would tend to furoe a crisis pre maturely would have mischievous effects. T he Germ an government i* regarded as being particularly solicit ous th a t there should he noou tbieak at this time, but unfortunately seeks to impose conditions in the pursuit of this purpose, th a t if acoepted, would seri ously compiomise the alleged rights of both tbe United States and Great B ritain. O m government prefers to adhere strictly to the lines ol the Ber lin treaty, so long as that convention remains unchanged. It is understood here th at the provisional government referred to in the news dispatches, Is nothing more than an assemblage of some of the srbehiefs and th at even Mataafa, the candidate for the king ship, has not joined. Meanwhile, tha three governments are somewhat di vided over the proposition to undertake a leopening of the controversy over the succession to the throne, ttie piesent contention of the United States and Great Britain being tiiat as the chief justice was clothed wih specific author ity to deal with this question, not even the treaty powers have any power in the matter, F O L G E R ’S S ix at PAR TY R a m p a r t C ity a n d a t I ’e a v y .
