WAR SHIP TO SAMOA
THE AMERICAN FLAG WILL. FLOAT
IN SAMOAN WATERS.
Th Mohlean a Training Ship Will go mt
Hmm a American Inlereftta lieuiaud It-
Churchill on Mauioa.
New Yohk, Feb. J. The American
flag Will goon be displayed in S.imoan
waters by a man-of-war, says tlie Her
ald's Washington correspondent. Tht
vessel will be the Mohtcin, which ha
been converted into a training ship.
Since the arrival in Washington of
former Consui-General Churchill, the
president and Assistant Secretary ol
State Day have become convince! that
American interests demand that a man-of-war
shall soon visit Samoa. Mr.
Churchill has told them that the na
tives Lave no respect for the A eric-in
overnment because it has never sent a
man-of-war to support any steps f ir the
protection of American interests which
its representatives in Apia might take.
Mr. Churchill reported an insult paid
to a man from Arizona who had es
tablished a miBion near Apia. He de
manded satisfaction, hut the native!
laughed at him, and upon subeeiuent
occasions, when he attempted to pet
latisfaction for soma wrong committed,
they taunted him w it h the u' rage com
mitted upon the minion and the fur
ther fact that he had received mi sup
port from his government in th stand
he had taken. The natives have quite
a different feeling for the Bri'.it-h and
German government. Fach of these
(tovernments keeps one and sometime!
two cruisers in Samoan waters Th
last American war ship to vi'it Apia
was the Alliance, which dropped ancnor
in the harbor of Apia in 1893. Upon
the arrival of the Mohican in Samoa n
waters it Is expected that its command
ing oflicer, Cuinmandther G. M. Uo k,
will confer w ith Consul-General Oflborn
In regard to the s'eps to be taken to
create a deeper resp"Ct among the na
tives for the American flag.
Aa a reeult of the representatto"
which have been made b former Con-
ul-Geneial Churchill, the administra
tion may enter into negotiations w th
London and Beriin louki'g to the
amendment of the tripartite treaty uu
der which Samoa is governed. In the
firm place Mr. Churchill thinks the sal
aries of the cnief justice and other of-
fleers appointed by the three govern
ments in Samoa are tx high, and these
may be scaled dow n. There is no in
tention on the part of the government
to abandon the interests of this govern
ment in Samoa, Mr. Churchill does i o
recommend it, although he says the oniy
reason why this government should con
tinue its hold upon the island is because
It in morally bound to do so by the
course pursued in the past. Mr. Church
Ill states that if the United States were
to withdraw from Samoa, the islands
would Le diviled up by Germany and

Nbw York, Feb, 1. More than 90,
OoO.OOO of government state and railroad
bonds have been sold during this month
compared with $:JH,13S,000 for the same
month last year. This is the highest
monthly record in history. The Com
mercial Advertiser says:
"When bankers are asked why bondi
re so active and money at the banks so
cheap, they reply that money is pouring
Into New York from all parts of the
country so freely that there will be no
bet'tr money rate. Tnat there is ten
dency among a number of banks to re
duce rates of inte-est on deposits is true
bat that there is a general inclination to
do so is not yet apparent. In the mean
time it is expected that bonds for in
restment will remain active.

subject of a report to the state depa t

Xbw Yohk, Jan. 20 Bradstreet's to
Favralde conditions in the trade sit

of an opposite character. Stormy
weather throughout a lare section of
the country this week has checked the
movement of the merclnndise in the
country but a good demand for season
able goods U reporte I as already result
ing. The last week of the month cloned
with increased activity in nnny lines, a
number of price advances, heavily in
creased bunk clenngs, as compared
with one year air" t nearly all cities,
another considerabl drop in the num
ber of failures reported, large, exports of
cereals, particularly wheat, corn and
flour, aim perceptibh confidence in near
ly all branches of trade as regards the
outlook for spring business. Another
favorable feature of the week is the
plight but distinct improvement in the
cotton goods situation, in which specula
tive at tivity is awakening. Print cloths
are higher and some makeB of gray and
medium weights cottons are more firm
Pig iron is reflecting the effect of the
piesent unprecedented production and
a further weakening in prices is re
corded i.t eastern pointB. At the west,
however, consumpti m of pig and of the
finished prolucts o iron anil steel is re
ported increased so as to hold prices
firm. Large eales of bar steel and rails
are reported at Chicago and St. Lo lis,
with mills refusing tj take orders for
delivery earlier thsi late summer.
Boots and shoes hold the late advance
and manufacturers of heavy weights
will not take orders for fall delivery at
present prices. Wool is strong on large
sales and firm prices abroad. Prices of
most staple product are higher on the
week, notable instances of which are
w heat past the dollar mark again at
many western markets. Collections are
generally reported air, thoBe indicating
backwardness coming most generally
fiom the south.
Cereal exports are again heavy, total
shipments of wheat, including flour, for
the week amounting to5,110,G24 bushels
against 3,96,00;) budiels last week and
against 3 926.000 bushels last week and
2,515,000 in this week a year ago. Corn
exports have also heavily increased
from last week, amounting to 4,962,000
bushels, againft. 3,436,000 busheh last
week and 3,011,000 bushels last year.
A Myntvriou. Murderer.
Cincinnati, O., Jan. 29. Christian
Klein, owner of the Cincinnati flour
mills at Corryville, a suburb of this city,
was murdered by robbers at the mill
Thun-day evening. The robbers got
nothing, but effected their escape.
At midnight Klein was reported at
the hospital as dying. He never re
gained consciousness and the case is full
of mystery. He has been wealthy, but
suffered losses the past few years, and
creditors put his mill in the liandtof the
sheriff on attachments. The suicide
ti e ry is insisted on by the pdice.
William Klein, one of the victim's
sons, is missing. William was a partner
and a.itive in the management of the
millB. Klein was shot on the canal
bridge near his mill an J since no trace
of William could be had up to midnight
the police are dragging the canal for the
Bon's body and for the revolver that
may have been ueed in the eyent of it
Later in the night William Klein, the
son, was found at his home in the su
burb of Corryville. The victim's pocket
book, emptied of its contents, waa found
on the bridge and there are other evi
dences of highway robbery and murder.
The police abandoned the dredging and
the euici le theory.
Swindling- the Lotteries.
Cleveland, O., JaD. 29 Government
secret service agents succeeded in un
earthing a gang of lottery ticket coun
terfeiters, whose operations during the
last five years have extended through
nearly every large city in the country.
As lotteries are outlawed, the forging of
the tickets cannot be punished, but the
postal agents got after them for sending
lottery tickets throgh the mail. Thurs
day afternoon they arrested Thomas
Dolan, thirty-five years old, ostensibly
a carpenter, on the charge of sending
lottery tickets through the mail, and
searched his house. In the basement
was found complete paraphernalia for
altering lottery tickets, and it was con
fiscated. Dolan was released on 500
bail. Tha gang's method of operations
was to buy lottery tickets, wait for the
announcement of the winning numbers
and change the numbers on the tickets
to correspond. The work was done by
scraping tha original numbers off and
painting the new numbers and lettering
on with fine camels hair brushes.
