WjIMUNotox, April 3. A Joint high
ointnlssion to settle tho entire Samoan
trouble has been practically agreed
vpon by the United States, Hrltlsh and
German governments. Lord Salis
bury's absence, from London alone do
lays the formal acceptance by Great
Hritaln, though, In his absence, Sir
Thomas Sanderson and Mr. VHllers,
who are understood to bo specially
familiar with the Samoan question,
have approved tho plan for a commis
sion. The United States has Inform
nlly expressed Its approval, and tho
formal acceptance, It is learned from
the highest quarters, will follow
speedily. As the proposition emanates
from Germany, her approval, of
course. Is assured. This high com
mission, it is felt, affords a pacific
solution to the whole, trouble at tho
moment when Samoan affairs began to
look the most threatening.
The new plan has been fully gont
over by Secretary Hay and the Hrltlsh
and German ambassadors here, and Its
essential details worked out. Each
nation is to bo represented by ono
member on the commission. It is to
have practically unlimited authority,
without the ncceirlty of referring its
decisions back to the several govern
ments for approval. It Is felt that by
conferring such compjete and final
authority on the high commission, tho
danger will be obviated of any further
deadlocks and delays.
Still another Important provision
under consideration is that King Os
car of Norway and Sweden shall be the
umpire in casu the three high commis
sioners should fall to reach a determi
nation. The plan of inviting King
Oscar to referee a disagreement meets
the approval of tho Hritish and Ger
