Washington, August 5.—Commander
Benjamin F. Tiller, in charge of the
United States naval station on the Isl­
and of Tutuila, Samoa, transmits in a
recent report to the navy department
upon the condition of affairs on the isl­
and an “instrument of cession” exe­
cuted by the chiefs of Tutuila and the
United States government. The docu­
ment formally cedes and transfers to
Commander Tilley, as the representa­
tive of the United States government,
the Islands of Tutila, Auua, and all
other islands, rocks, reefs, foreshores
and waters lying between certain de­
grees of latitude and longitude, namely,
to erect the same into a separate dis­
trict to be known as the district of Tu-
tila. The "instrument of cession”
was signed by the marks of 22 chiefs,
with their seals affixed, on April 17
last, immediately prior to the raising
of the Stars and Stripes over the naval
station at I’ago Pago.
The provisions of the documents set
forth that the chiefs of the towns shall
be entitled to retain their individual
control of the separate towns, provided
the same shall be in accordance with
the laws of the United States concern­
ing Tutila. It provides also that this
government shall protect and respect
the individual rights of the people to
their land and property; and should
the government require their land, it
shall take the same on payment of a
fair consideration.
Commander Tilley visited Rose isl­

in the Tivoli, a tenderloin resort, last
night, were araigned in the police court
here today. Two of the women were

ination, and J. F. McAvo, the waiter,
who is alleged to have assaulted Stat*
Senator Ford in the Tivoli a few nights
ago, and against whom Senator Ford
appeared as the complaining witness.
McAvo was held in $100 bail for ex­
amination tomorrow, his counsel stat­
ing that he desired to bring counter
charges against Senator Ford.
New Jersey Laws Adequate.
New York, August 5.—Governor
Voorhees, of Now Jersey w hen asked if
the state authorities would make any
investigation of the anarchists in New
Jersey or try to stop the promotion of
their cause, replied that the laws are
well observed now in New Jersey and
amply sufficient to cover the anarchy
issue. If any transgressions of the
laws were committed, the state will
take prompt action, and the offenders,
when proved to be such, will be prose­
cuted and punished.
The governor
did not seem pleased at the imputation
that anarchists were being sheltered in
ins state.
Yellow Fever in Florida.
Key West, Fla., August 5.—Dr.
Porter, Florida’s state health officer,
•who is now in this city, received today
from Dr. Weedon, medical representa­
tive of the board at Tampa, a message
announcing two cases of yellow fever in
that city, and saying he believed the
infection to be general. Dr. Porter nt
jnce wired Dr. Weedon to place quar­
antine restrictions on all travel to and
form Tampa. It is believed that the
disease can be confined to Tampa.
San Francisco Italian*.
San Francisco, August 5.—The Ital­

Nl.aragna Sel.nre Will Not Stop
ths Canal.
Washington August,**.—From inside
sources it was learned that the action
of the Nicaraguan government in tak-4
ing possession of the property of the
Maritime Canal Company will have
not the slightest effect- upon the con­
strueton of the canal by the United
States government. It is fully under­
stood that when the canal is actually
authorized by the United States that
the Nicaraguan government will have
to make terms with the United States,
notwithstanding any concessions it
may have granted to other parties.
There is a possibility that provision
will be made for concessions that have
been granted, in order to avoid any
possible difficulties. It is not believed
here that the Cragin-Eyre Company has
any purpose in this concession other
than to secure money from the United
States when the canal is built. Author­
ities on the caual have uever believed
that the com essions obtained by this
syndicate were of any value.

August 5.—The Nicaraguau congress
convened last evening, and was per­

who declared that the condition of the
country, especially from the point of
finances, showed distinct improvement.
He annouuced the termination of the
concession to the Maritime Canal Com­
pany, and formally proclaimed the ex­
istence of the Eyre-Cragin canal con­
cession. He also emphasized tlie gov­
ernment's programme for extending
the national railroad. His speech was
received thrroughout with enthusiasm.

cents’ worth of pay dirt to the pan,
aud this in summer digging, with only
two or three feet to bedrock, w equiva­
lent to $1 a pan where one has to go
25 feet to bedrock.
“The great necessity now in Alaska,”
says Consul McCook, “is good roads,
good camps and the prospecting of com­
paratively unknown sections.”
Great dissatisfaction was expressed
at Dawson City this spring after the
wash up, he says, by miners who
woiked for men who had leased mining
claims from the owners. The lay men
sign contracts to work so many feet of
the claim during the season, to receive
50 per cent of the gold coming out of
the claims, and the lessee agreeing that
all men working the propetry will be
employed under a written contract by
which they promise not to hold the
claim in any way liable fortheir wages.
It has turned out in hundreds of cases
that the cost of working the olaims has
taken more than 50 per cent of the out­
put, the lessees’ share. Thus the men
employed on the claims have been de­
prived of their wages. Lay men on
rich claims, says Consul McCook, can
do very well, but the majority of the
olaims cannot be worked on tins basis
at the current rate of wages.
