Cubic Special to Tim Ur.B.I Tlio rough
draft of the Samoan agreement was signed
at half-past 0 to-night. Sonio delay had been
experienced on account of the printer's er

the reprinting of two pages of the agree

Messrs. Knsson , Phclps and Bates wcro
appealed to , directly after the conference by
your correspondent for the iloilntto particu
lars of the treaty. Each and allot the Amor-
loans , however , declared that Inviolable se
crecy has boon Imposed on all the members
of thn conference and upon the American
delegates In particular , by special request of
President Harrison.
From other sources , however , the general
scope of the treaty , as finally agreed upon ,
wns learned to bo as follows :
The treaty Is eminently satisfactory to all
the three governments Involved. It Is exe
cuted In good faith and Is likely to put an
and to the unfortunate condition ot affairs
that prevails upon the Islands. The funda
mental Idea seems to bo to Interfere as 1 mie
ns possible with the Independence of Samoa
proper.cxccpt for the protection of American ,
Gorman and English subjects , and then only
with the consent of the Samoans. That this
consent Is necessary , Is ono of the reasons
why certain amendments are wanted to the

considered a grievance by tno United States ,
and the restoration of Mallctoa and the status

Ing- This has now been accom
plished. Mullatoa will return before
the treaty Is oven ratified. Mataafa is
considered to have been by n locum tencns
for Mallotoa , and will retire unmolested Into
private life. No mention of this occurs in
the agreement , nor does anything limit the
number of ships of war that cither of the
treaty powers may keen In Samoan waters.
A definite and well dlgcsted-schomo , set
tling the land claims , has been adopted-and
the favorite English hobby , that the sale of
lliiuor should bo limited In all the South Sea
islands , finds recognition in the agreement.
Apia is to bo placed under about the suno
species of foreign control us-Shanghai , slncu
nearly all'tho foreigners iuSamoa reside
there. All three powers retain consular rep
resentatives at Apia , but the supreme ad
visor of the Samoan king , will bo a judicial
ofllcer ot European nationality , who is not
Consuls nro to bo limited simply to purely
consular functions. No ono has yet been
named in connection with the judicial post.
Samoa will not bo called upon to pay any
lndctnnityclthor to the survivors of the Ger
man force , who fell in the skirmish of
December 17 , or to the owners of plantations
for alleged devastation of their property by
Mataafa's mo
The treaty , as it stands , can scarcely bo
objected to by the Samoans to whom , how
ever , it must bo submitted.
Mr. William Walker Phelps loft hero at
0 o'clock to-night to catch the Ulda at Bro-
merhavcn , to-morrow , on which , ho sails for

sul Sowoll , will remain some clays to wind up
the business of the conference. Mr. Kasson
returns homo la about n month , Mr. Hates
will return homo-after a short visit to Paris.
The best prooi ! that the conforcnco is set
tled is the fact that Count Bismarck goes to
Konlgstom , near Hamburg , to-night ,
on his regular annual six weeks' leave. His
mother , the princess , who is usually with
him at such times , this year is at Vurzlo.
Americans may feel proud of the result of
the conference. The Times correspondence
says : "It is agreed by the delegates , before
separating- observe the strictest socresy
with regard to their decision until the final
act is submitted to the senate at Washing
ton , but there can bo no doubt that the
Americans have emerged from this conference
ence- with flying colors , mil that Germany
has had to content herself with prospects of
much loss political predominance on the
Islands than she claimed at Washington , two
years ago. This result , it would appear , Is
much more duo to the firm and inexorable at
titude of Mr. Blalno than to any political
leanings of England towards the power ,
Which it Is her highest aim to conciliate. "
The News says : -'Mr. Phelps loaves , to
night , for Now York , and , although ho de
nies it , It U believed that ho will bo ap
pointed American ambassador hero. Tlio
first point decided on Is the absolute auton
omy of the native population , to
wards which they ara secured the
right of choosing their king and vice
roy. It la almost certain that Mallotoa
will bo rcelccjcd. American and Gorman
representatives will bo attached to the king1
00 advisers , while the English representa
tive will act as arbitrator In case of disagree
ment. The native government is to have the
ole control of the administration , and U to
bo free to introduce protective duties. Each
of the powers U to have coaling stations
allotted , and anchoring places. "
The Standard says : " 1'ho United Statoi
government made its adhesion to thn Samoi
treaty conditional upou its ratification by the
eon lite , and as this can not take plnco until
December next , the hiatus < iuo will bo main
tained on the Islands until that tlmo. The
treaty guarantees the aiitouionous adminis
tration of tlio Suiuoan islands , under the joint
control ot Germany and the United States
Great Britain acting r.s arbitrator In the
event o _ ( tiny difference arising , The iS.i-
' moans'will , under tliu new treaty , elect
their own king and viceroy , and will bo
represented by u sonata composed of the
principal chiefs and a chamber elected by
tbo people. Samoa will have the right of
levying dutloi of every description , and the
treaty" also stipulates that thn Gin-iimns shall
receive n money Indemnity for their losses.
Fur tlio settlement of the land fjucatlon a
special court will bo appointed , "
The Times nays editorially ; "It can nebo

handed , impolitic and inconsistent , alike will

Tlio Opinion In Washington.
WASHINGTON , Juno 14. The agreement bo-
ween England , Germany and the United
States on Samoan affairs was signed at Dcr-
In this afternoon. It will not bo made pub-
lo until confirmed by the senate. Whlla It

vonlng , ho thought It would require rati
fication by the 8cnatc. * If the Instrument

uct of two countries toward each

CHICAGO , Juno 14. [ Special Telegram to
Tun BEE. ] After another day's 'dohbern-
lens , the Western Freight association is
jpparontly nsfar as cvor from a settlement
of the break in rates between Chic.i-jo and
St. Paul. The matter was referred to a
committee this morning. This afternoon it
reported a resolution that the rail lines
should advance tlio through rates to the old
lasls and Ignore the Lake lines , and the
Chicago , Burlington & Northern. The
resolution led to an animated and very
acrimonious discussion , and It was soon
developed that It could not bo carried. A
csolutlon to abolish pro rating at Missouri
ivcr points was then discussed , with a
ike result. No resolution looking to a
lellnlto settlement of the complication was
ntroduced. It is the belief of Chicago mer
chants that the roads mtond to dilly-dally
over the problem and postpone the Inevitable
tquallzation of the through and local rates as
eng as possible.
The Chicago freight bureau , representing
ho board of trade , will take legal action to
mvo the present discriminating rates equal-
zed unless the freight men come to n con
clusion in n few days. As shown before , the
vhlcairo jobbers must pay 00 cents a hundred
o St. Paul , where eastern jobbers pay but
18 cents. The opinions of the best judges is
hat the roads must take their medicine and
reduce local rates to at Ipast n US-cent basis.
At present the lake lines absolutely refuse
o compromise on any basis. They claim to
> o getting 00 per cunt of the business at re-
nuneratlvo rates , and that they would bo
'oolish to give up their advantage.

The San Frauolsco Suepoot Not In
Hiding. v
But They Don't Scout to Want Huh
Ho Will Talk Plainly to Luke
Dillon When Ho Meets .
WASHINGTON. D. C. , Juno ri4. r
A Chicago dUpatch says that a local uapcr
reports Thomas Desmond , who is a promi
nent Irlsman on the Pacific coast , ns wanted
by tbo Chicago police for complicity in the
murder of Dr. Cronin. Mr. Desmond Is hero
and has bcon stnco the 23nd of May. Ho is
strongly backed for appointment to some
oQlco under the administration nnd ho is In
the city in connection with that business.
Ho said when soon to-day that ho was sur
prised to see his name mentioned In connec
tion with the murder of Dr. Croniu. Ho
stated that ho did not know Dr. Cronin and
iiad never mot him , and that ho was not a
member of the Clan-na-Gael. Mr. Desmond
said ho was In Now York at the time of the
murder. Yesterday , In company with Mr.
Thomas Wnlsb , of this city , Mr. Desmond
wont to the First precinct station
nnd informed the officers that
ho was at their disposal. But ho found that
the police had no Information in regard to
him. Ho said , to-day , that ho bad heard
nothing moro about the matter , but ho held
himself In readiness. Ho wanted It to bo
understood that ho was not in hiding , nnd
further that ho had douo nothing In his life
to bo ashamed of. Mr. Desmond attributes
the rumor of his connection with the case to
Luke Dillon , whom he mot casually In Now
York just before no loft that city for Wash
ington. Ho says that before ho returns to
San Francisco ho intends to meet Air. Dil
lon and tell him what ho thinks about him.
Thcro has been quite a gathering of re
publican members of congress , in Washing
ton , this week , nnd thcro has bcon quite a
good deal of groxvlitifc among them owing to
the slowness with which appointments are
being turned out for Now York state. Ono
of the uurty has suggested nnd the ethers
seriously contemplate carrying out a plan
for bringing tlio administration to time. It
is proposed to call a meeting of tbo Now
York republican members , to bo held in this
city , nt an early day , for the purpose of
going bodily to the president and urging
upon him the absolute necessity of speedy
action there. The republican members say
very emphatically , that .unless action is
taken at once , there is absolutely no chance
for the republicans in the state , city or
county this fall.
The members of the house and sonata who
still llncer hero seemed determined to make
up for lost time to-day , and there were more
of them among the president's callers than
there have boon before in some tune. Thcso
visitors scorned to explain the reason why
tliero Is any occasion for growling over the
apparent slownessjof the administration in
making changes in the ofilccs. Scarcely a
ntato delegation exists in which there is
perfect harmony among the congressmen in
the mutter of the distribution of places. For
instance , the two senators from Minnesota
have two distinct sets of applicants for the
federal positions in that stato. J'hoy do not
seem able to heal their differences among
themselves , and want the president to liolp
them out. Ho very naturally declines to
interfere in such cases , and the result is that
the appointments are delayed. Ono of the
most unpleasant contests which hoe bcon
bothering tbo appointing powers is that
which has been in urogress'between Senator
Quay and Postmaster-General Wauamakor
over the ofllces In the city of Philadelphia.
Anti-administration men have painted the
misunderstanding between the two gen
tlemen in the blacKest possible colors ,
and it has been asserted over and
over again that an open breach was immi
nent. It w.xs learned , to-day , that a perfect
understanding has been reached , aim that
the result will bo the appointment of a list of
names to the three principal places during
the night or to-morrcw morning.
To-morrow the president will take another
brief vacation , and he has'accopted an invi
tation to take another run down the river on
the yacht Restless , and it is probable that ho
will uot return until Monday morning. Next
Saturday ho will visit Capo May , ana will
spend Sunday with his family there , i
Owing to the absence of Secretary Proctor
and the indisposition of the acting secretary
of war , General Schofield , no information
could be gathered at the war department ,
this afternoon , ns to the probable action of
the authorities iu the matter of the outbreak
of the Chippowu Indians In Minnesota. It Is
not thought that the outbreak will provo of a
very serious character , and no apprehension
is felt hero that the Indians will create any
cause for general alarm ,
Tno representatives of the health office
who have made an examination into the
condition of the water supply of the
city report that there is danger of
an influx of foul matter into the river above
the point from which the water is drawn ,
unless tliero is something dor.o immediately.
Tlio danger comes from a break in the canal
caused by the recent Hoods. There would
seem to bo fur moro danger from the ex
halations of the sewers , which pour into'tho
river immediately backof the executive man
sion. Your correspondent made a personal
examination to-day and found n state of al-
fulrs existing which should not bo tolerated
for a single day. The entire sowcrago from
a largo section of the city Is discharged Into
the river Just west of thu carp ponds , and the
high water , which has bcon the rule since
the Hood , cause all the filth to move slug
gishly along into the main channel ot the
river at such n rate tbat the exhalations per-
ineatn the entire atmosphere and the stench
Is simply terrible. When the wind is from

foul air is carried directly towards the whlto

CmcAao , June 14. Alexander Sullivan
was to-day restored to liberty by Judge
Tuloy. The release was the immediate re
sult of Sullivan's application for a writ of
inbcas corpus. His ball was fixed at $30,000
and was promptly furnished by four well
mown citizens , each of whom represented
nany times the total amount asked. Mr.
Sullivan walked out of court , after having
icon loss than tliroo days In custody. The
udgo hold that the coroner's jury had been
nflucucod b'y outside sentiment. Seldom , It
over , has a case drawn such n crowd as that
vhlchnsjomblod this afternoon to hear the
expected decision. The court room was
ainmod and n big concourse of men nssom-
ilcd In the corridor adjoining , socking to
catch from afar the words from the Judge's
States AttornoyLongcneckor and his assist
ant.Mr. Baker , were in cioso consultation
vlth Judge Tuloy before ho came on the
icncli. Several unknown men also entered
its chamber. They were presumably inom-
bors of the coroner's Jury who returned the
verdict in the Cronin case.
Mr. Sulllvnn was early on the scene. Ho
vas. brought In by Sheriff Matson person
ally , who escorted him through the judge's
chamber before the chaucolor'8 arrival , on
iccount ot the crowd at the other doors. On
Sullivan's arrival ho took n seat m the cen
ter of tlio circle formed by his lawyers , Mes
srs. Trudo , Windcs and Gilbert , with whom
10 entered into whispered consultation. A
score of members of the bar evinced profes
sional and friendly Interest In Mr. Sullivan
jy being present.
The was a wait of three-quarters of an
lour before Judge Tuloy reached the court
oom. Finally at : J:43 : p. m. ho ascended tlio
jcnch with a written opinion , which it soon
jecamo apparent hud been made after nn
analysis of the whole mass of testimony in
.ho case , and not as first proposed merely
.hat relating to Sullivan alone. Sullivan
ji-aced himself in his chair and kept his eyes
Ixcd on the court as Judge Tuloy said :
"I suppose thcro will oo no further stops
.alten beyond this evidence before the core
ner's jury. "
Loiigncckor replied : . "That is all. There
s no ndditioiml testimony. "
"Because if you had any the court would
feel compelled to hear it , " said the court.
Judge Tuley then , iu his characteristic
matter of fact manner , began reading his de
cision , and hud uot proceeded two minutes ,
when the frowns of these Identified with the
prosecution showed which way was the
The decision , in substance , is as follows :
The judge said that the application before
liira was for the release of Alexander Sul
livan on bail , under the bill of rights , which
provided for the balling of persons accused
of murder , whore the evidence was not
strong or the presumption of their
guilt was not strong. The court referred to
the 'terms of the agreement by which the
matter was loft to him , on the evidence before
fore the coroner. Ho said ho had read 1,100
pages of typo written pages of evidence ,
taken before the coroner's jury. Much of
the testimony was irrelevant , and Incompe
tent before a court , but a wide scope was al
lowed a coroner in such investigations. Ho
could even hoar hearsay cvidonco , if
it gave direction to the form in which an
Inquiry should bo directed so as to bring
about the discovery of the oersous guilty of
Dr , Cronin's tnurdor. Thuro was a good
deal of this hearsay evidence. Mrs. Conklin
and Scanlan testified that they hoard Cronin
suy thutthore ; was a plot to nssassinato him
and that Sullivan was back of it. Barry ,
Morris and O'Briun testified substantially to
the same things , saying that Cronin wag
afraid of Sullivan. Boland and Buckley ,
Mr. O'Connor , Mr. Ford and Mr. Ives tes
tified later to a singular statement by Cronin
as to his cross-examination before a notary ,
and that ho believed that it was part of a
plot and that Sullivan was at the head of it.
Dillon said bo talked about it so much that
ho believed Cronin had Sullivan on
the brain. Haggorty's ovldonco was
probably the most important as
against Sullivan and the statements
ho testified that Cronin made were made
about the tlmo of Cronin's trial. The testi
mony given by Hngporty on that point was
substantially the only evidence that Sullivon
made a direct threat against Cronin's lifo.
Thcro was practically no other evidence
bearing on Sullivan's alleged throats in IS ? . " ) ,
except HacRcrty's. The court knows of no
law that would admit declarations of Cronin
made out of Sullivan's presence. It would
not lib admitted before n committing magis
trate. It was shown by evidence that Sulli
van was prominent in Irish nationalist cir
cles ; that the trlanglo controlcd J Irish matters -
tors ; that several camps wcro expelled , as
also was Cronin ; that from Cronin's presence
on the committee which tried Sullivan , Bo-
land and Touncy , Sullivan was inspired
with an enmity toward Croniu , which the
evidence showed reciprocated. Cronin
was murdered as the result of a conspiracy.
That was also shown by the evidence , and
likewise it showed that back of this conspi
racy were personal enemies of Cronin , But
what evidence was thcro that Sullivan wns
one of those enemies ? There was no act in
connection with the murder which related to
Sullivan , It was not shown that lie had any
thing to do with the liorao which carried
Cronin to his death or that ho rented the
cottage , and the evidence against the other
accused parties would -probably stand If the
statements of Cronin as to Sullivan were
obliterated entirely.
Another theory was that Cronin wns re
moved to prevent disclosures , but thcro wa-t
no cvidonco that ho had any facts which
would dlo with him. The f.-.cts In his pos
session lived alter his death , The coroner
had been unable to find any traeo of any pro
ceedings In any camps to condemn him to
Another theory was that ho was removed
because ho was a British spy. If Cronin
were removed by the United BrotlKJrhooU ,
It could not bo boon how Sullivan actuated it.

that the suspicion ugaiiiat Sullivan
strong , and that ho fell a bitter nml malig
nant hatred of Cronin there was HO duubt ,
but It was almost impossible that if ho was
guilty of conspiracy to kill Cronin , ho would
have promulgated , two weeks aftoiCronln'a
murder , his protest made at the UulTala
trial , in which ho branded Cronin as a
scoundrel and u perjurer. No impartial r.i..n
could believe it possible ; no Jury couliiijn-
viit : Sullivan on tlio evidence presented.
"As any hesitation ought to bo resolved iu
favor ot personal liberty , " said the court , "I
will admit his release to ball ami iteur iho
counsels' suggestions as to the amount. "

would bo excessive. Longcneckur said that
ho would consent that the bail should ra.nn : !

sure such indictments In order to bond off
the habeas corpus proceedingstn New York.
"If any notion Is tnlcdn In tliw matter , " ho
said , "It will bo taken before night. "
In answer to u micstlon as to Governor
Hill's probable action In the Moronoy-Mc-
Donald case , Chief ot Pollco Hubbiml said
to-day : "Wo nro waiting and oxncctinsr nnd

There Is n suspicion that the grand Jury ro-

posely kept secret.

CHICAGO , Juno 14. Alexander Sullivan's
trlonds were Jubllnnt to-night. A. S. Trudo ,
its counsel , said :
"This is but the beginning of the light ,
llemombor this is the first and only test yet
md of all that mass of slanderous gossip nnd
icarsay. Not ono ot these men who showed
ihoirjiiaUco In every word while tolling what
they 'boltovod,1 and 'thought , ' nnd 'Imag
ined , ' was duly cross-oxamlncd , nor has a
single witness yet been called In behalf of
Mr. Sullivan , yet Judge Tuloy says tlioro Is
not n word in the 1,100 pages of type-wrltton
.cstlmony on which u Jury could convict.
Mow Just imagine n trial when he and his
witnesses could bo heard. Sullivan's ofilco
s In the very next building to the coroner's
ofilco , but ho was never oven asked for infer
mation. From all over the country Mr.
Sullivan has boon receiving letters and tolo-
prams expressing Indignation at the course
nil-sued toward him , and tendering him any
lid and sympathy. Ho has steadily refused
; o allow miy use to bo made of these com
munications or any mention of them , but I
can take the responsibility of saying that his
'rlonds will now begin to have their con
fidence In him Justified. "
