Britain Imyc CDiisi-ntcd to tlieir puhlica
tion. The. first enclosure, is a telegram
from Mmi-tor 1'eiidlcton ti Secretary
llayar.l, d.iti il Ileilin, Im !. 1, in which he
says tin; statement mad.: to Secretary
IJiyatd ly C'wtiiit Arcov.illey Cannoiincini'
tlritthc (ri iiu in (jverii..i'jnt had rebuked
its odicials for declining martial law
against foreigners) had anticipated the
statement he ( lVndleton) had been in-.-.ttiiLtcd
to make to tho German ;ovcrn
tiient. On Feb. 1 Secretary IJayard wrote
to Count Arcovalh'V, (term tn minister at
Wiisiiinton, acknowledging tlie recei)t
of this advice. The memorandum in
stiiuetions of Prince HUmarck to the
f tcriiuin minister at Washington, which
were read by the latter to the secretary of
state, Feb. 4, tire 11s follows: ''The pres
ent situation in Samoa rcgaiding the
interest:! of the three treaty powers
renders it neces-ary to renew the attempt
to bring the future of these inlands to an
understanding. The position of the
three treaty powers in the civilived
world makes it tlieir duty to stop the
bloody combat, accompanied by the bar
barous customs of those not numerou-
tribes, for whose warfare, according to
the judgment of the civilized world, it is
the duty of tin; treaty powers to provide,''
Prince Hisniaivk, in cousijuence, consid
ered it the duty of the participating
governments to put an end by agreement
of the treaty p-iwers to the troubles
which have originated in Samoa by a
restitution of peace among the SamotinS
themselves and su make an end of future
bloodshed and horrors of a civil war,
conducted with a barbarous cruelty
among the natives. The best remedy
seeins to be a re-iumptiou of the consul
ration which took place in lM?at Wash
ington. According to the opial rights
f the treaty powers, it seems tiie proper
place for negotiations should change in
regular turn. 1 uiii directed to invite the
overt;uient ol t!ie I. ntteil Irites to a
.oiiferc nr.e regarding S-imoa. to take
olaee at Ileilin, and a similar invitation
.ia- l ;eii sent to the Uritish go reintnent.
I am directed to u.nl.ire that any suppo
iti.m that Germany ..u!d not feel n.tis
ii d with a neutral position in l!i;Sim i
1 :ik!s is Uiifoiin.'ed. as we have already

d.it safety to tiie c.i:u:iu: ci ii iiiicrcits of
the three treaty poweis iu Samoa.
The sooner this conference can be re
sumed the better, and in view of the late
deplorable state of bloodshed which has
!ioen exhibited upon Snnoan soil, entail
ing deeply regretable loss to Germany,
it appe irs essential that a truce should
be forthwith proclaimed, and furttier
irtned action should be arrested. As the
insurance of prince Bismarck is that a
specification of the Samoan group and
:lie occupancy of a neutral position are
ais only objects, it is suggested in the
furtherencc of the desired result
of the conference, that instructions to
suspend belligerant action and await the
iction of such conference should at once
be telegraphed to their respective officers
in Sunoa, by the three treaty-making
powers. To continue to prosecute a war
of destruction and reprisal, even on ad
mitted! provocation, would surely not
consist with the objects of any of the
three powers. It is hoped, therefore,that
orders of tiie nature indicated will be
forwarded to Samoa without tlelay. The
announcement of conference between the
treaty powers, it is confidently expected,
will at once cause a cessation of hostili
ties among the natives, and their speedy
election of a king would certainly be a
long step towards harmony.
At the fourth meeting Uayard said he
hail not the sliyhtest desire to exercise
any prep.mderence over Germany and
(treat Britain, but ho did desire to see
the native influence upheld by the three
powers etpaally and for a common pur
pose. He desired also to assert the im
portance of a practical neutralization of
the islands. At the fifth meeting Iiiyard
declared that the Geruiau plan wouli:
result in an iueipuality which would grow
larger, but West would not concede his
point. At the last session, July 2, Bay
ard, in reviewing the German proposi
tion, said: "The plan as proposed and
explained by Von Alvensleben is sub
stantially a foreign uutocratic govern
meiit, based on mercantile interests; and
all experience has shown what must nec
essarily result from such an attempt, and
that under it the defeat of the object we
all have distinctly proposed is certain.
I do not see why we should not recog
ni.e tit tlie outset and encourage in
Samoa a spirit of self-goyerning freedom
and self-retpect, Germany and tlie United
States have heretofore given strong ineli-
oations of a desire for this by tlieir prompt
disavowed of arbitrary and unadvised
acts of tlieir respective consuls (Steubel
and Greenbaum ). and it is noticeable that
the conduct of foreigners has caused
more disorder and discontent in Samoa
than any spontaneous action of the na
tives. Would it not therefore, be well
for us to adjourn the conference until
autumn, and thus give time to the minis
ters of Germany and Great Britain to
submit the protocols to their respective
governments, in order that instruction
may be received by them of a more def
inite character, by the aid of which we
may be enabled to come to an agreement.
Bayard's proposition waa agreed to.
White Caps In Nebraska.
SciiUYi.EK, Neb., Feb. IL Since the
full .'iOO strong of good law abiding citi
zens assembled at the opera house and
denounced in strong terms the cowardly
and brutal murder of Hagerman the ex
citement has run high, and at the present
time it is the sole topic of conversation.
Without a doubt it will lead to the most
critical condition of affairs ever known
in the history of Schuyler, ns men who
haye and do occupy prominent and lead
ing business positions iu our city, suclias
administering the gospel, whse duty it
should be to promote the morals and
welfare of man instead of publicly and
openly declaring that the fate of Hager
man was wrong and who are bitterly
opposed to the better element of society
in tryiny to bring to justice tlie perpetra
tors of the butchery of Hagerman. This
morning two lending men who are, with
hundreds f others bitterly opposed to
such high handed outrages, recuyed
through the m-il, postmarked North
Bend, Neb., the following notipes written
on postal cards;

War on Squaw Men.
IlKi.tNA, Mont., Feb. . United States
Deputy Marshal Kelly went on the Crow
reservation Thursday under orelers of
Indian Ageut Briscoe, and arrested Burns
Bravec, better known as Bravo, a squaw
man, nnd arraigned him before United
States ( 'ommissioner Gates. The spiaw
men had orders from Briscoe to leave
tlie reseryation, not for any specific cause
but because from Briscoe's interpretation
of the law they had no light to a home
on the reservation. They all refused to
leave and Bravo was the man selected
with whom to make a test case. Bravo
has an Indian wife and two children and
has lived on the reservation twenty-five
years und has been married sixteen years.
He has lived peaceably and quietly and
has a patent from the government for
his land. The case is set before the
commission for Feb. 18, and will excite
much interest. Briscoe, the agent, is the
appointee of President Cleveland and
came troni -Mississippi a year ago to
succeed Agent Williamson. He is the
first official who has sought to raise the
question of right of Squaw men to reside
on the reservation.
A Toueh Story of Mad Doe Lon

Whkeling, W. Va., Feb. 0. Great ex

county over me discovery ot about a
. s . .
dozen dogs afflicted with rabies which
have been running wild through the
woods and fields. For a month pasflive
6tock has been found dead and horrs and
cattle were observed to suffer from what
was thought to be fits. It turns out that
they have been bitten by mad dogs.
Two children of Morgan Morgan's were
also bitten. The farmers will inaugurate
a general raid and kill all dogs for a
dozen miles around. In Marshall county
adjoining Wetzell, Mrs. Mary Smith, aged
0, is dying from wounds inflicted by a
supposed mad dog.

Our esteemed conterriporv. The New

it refers to the present year as "tho

Tlie year 1890, notlho year 1SS9,
will be the closing year of tho ninth
