Cerman Officials Are Very Quiet in
Their Movements Now.
Apia, Samoa, March 2, 1880. Per
Zcalandia, San Francisco, March 17.
During the past month the German au
thorities, both consular ami naval, have
maintained a state of inactivity. This
condition of affairs dates b.tck to the ar
rival of the steamer Wainui, with dia
patches for the German consul on Januarj
23, and is no doubt the result of orders
then received. The declaration of a state
of war in the Samoan islands seems to
have become a dead letter, while the mil
itary occupation of Apia, which the dec
laration martial law would seem to have
implied, has no existence, save the main
tenance of a strong guard at the German
consulate. A guard is still kept upon
the American and English consulates.
The German consul has inde repeated
overtures to Mataafa, looking toward an
adjustment of the quarrel and a conclu
sion of peace. But the terms pro
posed always embodied a strong Ger
man interest in the future administration,
to which Mataffa declares he will, under
no circumstances, consent. He stays in
trenched in camp and awaits the arrival
of Admiral Kimberly, having full faith
in the support of the United States. Tam
asese, with his forces, now reduced by de
sertions to about 600 warders, still ocpu-
pies a Jarge fort at Lutunnu. Tbere has
been no collision between the opposing
forces for a long ti.ne. On February 8
a small skirmish occurred, in which one
of Tamasese's strongest supporters, a high
chief from Savoy, was killed.
On February 2, the English war vessel,
Royal, Captain Handek, was relieYed by
Her Majesty's ship pahiope, Captain Kane,
much to the satisfaction of the English
residents and consul. Not only the En
glish residents in Samoa, but the Xew
Zealand press as well, severely censure
Captain Hand for his dilatory and luke
warm actions during the recent troubles.
Early in the month Captain Fritz an
nounced that the American and English
consular courts were considered by him
as open for the hearing of causes, despite
his proclamation of martial law, reserviHg
for himself, however, the administration
of police under the regular onee of Janu
ary 10. This, by acknowledging the
ability of these eourts to perform their
civil functions undisturbed, virtually
rogates the necessity for the
establisment of martial law, and
gives a rather farci spec$ to that
arbitrary act an the part of the German
commander. Another fact, provincr that
the Germans recognised their original
stand to be untenable, is found in a re
issue of the Samoan Times, the English
newspaper which was suspended by the
German consul as a dangerous organ.
The reappearance of the paper waa with
out permission, byit jo comment has been
made on it by the German consul.
February 5 the steamer Lebeck left for
Sydney, carrying with her Brandeis, the
premier of Tamasese.who for a long time
has betn ordered home to explain his
conduct. The German war vessel F.ber,
which was sent to Auckland, ostensibly
to communicate with Berlin, has returned.
The dispatches which she undoubtedly
brought, but the tener of which is un
known, have not changed the condition
of affairs. The United States steamer
Vandalia arrived February 54, The ar
rival of flagship Trenton was anxiously
awaited." as it was hoped Admiral Kim
berly's instructions would empower him
to speedily terminate the uncertainty as
to the outcome of the struggle. - Mataafa
is firm iu his belief of ultimately receiving
the support of the United States govern
ment, and reiterated his determination to
do nothing until the admiral's arrival.
Tamasese, with his force weakened by
desertion, has sunk into a secondary
factor, and indeed has almost entirely
disappeared from the scene.

An Interesting Decision.
Des Moines, la., .iLi.cli ls. State
Auditor Lyons has recently rendered an
important decision affecting insurance
companies that is of general interest as
well. A certain Illinois mutual insurance
company applied to him for. a certificate
permitting it to do business in Iowa, but
a protest from other parties was also
filed, asking the auditor not to grant the
permission. If seems that EOine time ago
the company refused to pay a loss of
f 7,000, claiming that the policyholder
had died of drunkenness within forty
four hours after the policy had been
written. The attorneys for the parties
interested in the payment brought suit in
the district court and compelled the com
pany to pay the claim. The court de
cided that the comi)any must pay, and
the supreme court confirmed the judg
ment. But the company still refused to J
pay, and the attorneys for the estate then
filed papers with Auditor Lyon setting
out the facts and protesting against al
lowing the company to do business in
Iowa. The auditor, after consideiing the
matter, informed the representative- of
the company that since the supreme court
had held the claim to be valid, it must
be satisfied before the company could do
business in Iowa. After it was apparent
that the auditor would not yield, the
company agreed to, pay the cl&im. So if
citizens of adjoining states know of any
crooked business in connection with hcir
own insurance companies, find will re
port to the Iowa authorities, they can
shut thera out of the profitable field
which Iowa affords.
(no v astta of r-oetry. .
Why is it that every one wants to write
poetry? This instinct leads to Borne droll
incidents in newspaper offices. Tho waste
basket heaped with effusions from young
persons is a matter of course, but the
pialady does not in all cases end with
youth. Middle aged business men suc
cessful men, too have not infrequently
tho weakness. It is an odd spectacle
when a dignified old gentleman comes
in, and, with some hesitation, but with
unlimited confidence of what ho has
written, offers "a few lines" for consid
eration. It is almost; pitiful to see his
interest in the thing and to note his ill
disguised sorrow when informed that
what he has presented cannot b hrp
Ha doea not realize, nor can the majority
of people, that rhyme is not necessarily
poetry and that a jingle is not all
that is necessary to. make verses
worthy of publication. It must be the
mere sera of rhythm, unaccompanied
by the 6ense of what is new or strong,
tho mere tickle of the jingle on the ear,
which makes so many people think
themselves poets. Even in Chicago, ma
terialistic, money making, "get there"
Chicago, the value of the white paper
spoiled annually by so called poems
wliich are never printed would equal
the proverbial prince's ransom pro
vided, of pourse, the ransom were not
qnreasonably high. Chicago Tribune.
The Malice of Criminals.
If all the threats made of contemplated
vengeance of convicted criminals were
carried out, the mortality among officers
of the law would be astounding. No
thief ever felt tho halter dra,w with good
opinion of tho law, bo, runs the ancient
chestnut, and it is equally true that never
yet was there a criminal who had philoso
phy enough to give the officer who sends
him up credit for doing his duty. They
imagine themselves the victim of a pri
vate grievance, and when they are on
their way to the penitentiary they hon
estly believe that they intend to get even
with th6 officer at the expiration of then
terms. A year or two in the prison has a
wonderfully calming effect, and when
the prisoner ia released he is not inclined
to seek readmission to its walls. No little
scheme of revenge will tempt Mm to tak
ing the chances of another term. I do
not recall a single case in my police ex
perience where a returned convict has
attempted tho life, of a prosecuting offi
cer.Poliee Official in Globe-Democrat.
Freddie Papa, why do they call Cali
fornia "the Pacific Slope?"
Papa (reflectively) It must be because
a good many bad cashiers and other law
breakers peacefully slip out that way.
