Ang, Hi.—Tho hparins of the cnsu against Governor Waite, President Mullins, of the flro and police board, Hamilton Armstrong, chief of police! find Kate Dwyor, police tuntron, chnrg- ing them with conspiracy in detaining a letter intended for ex-Police Matron Sadie M. Likens, was .begun before ;.U, S. Commissioner Hinsdale Thurs- .day, 'The defendants, escept Governor Waite, were arraigned and they pleaded not guilty, as the governor had previously done. Tmtlmony of MM, Liken*. Ex-Matron Likens testified that the reason given her by the police board for her dismissal was "economy." No op L portumty was ever given her 'to' explain "Y^Llhe letter from Jesse Parr. She considered Parr's letter In answer to the ad. vertisetnent of Mrs. Ellen Harnet for situation as cook or housekeeper private and not official business. District Attorney Johnson asked Mrs. Likens to what party she belonged. Assistant Attorney General Sales, who appeared for the defendants, objected. Mr. Johnson thereupon declared: "I expect to show that all the defendants are member i of the Populist party; that the witness is a member of the Republican party, and that every effort was made to get .her out of office. I expect to show that, although this letter was addressedVon the note to Mrs. Likens, it was detained from her;-was carried to the president of tbe board and was announced by him that it was the evidence upon, which he could remove this witness." The commissioner sustained Mr. Sale's objection. Improper Penon For Matron. Jesse Pair, who wrote the letter, testified that he did not intend it for any of the defendants, but for Mrs. Likens. Mrs. Flora Frincke, formerly housekeeper for Matron Dwyer, testified that Miss Dwyer once, in her presence, told Governor Waite's private secretary she would have Mrs. Likens' place if it took her a year to get it. Mrs. Frincke testified that Miss Dwyer discharged her be cause she refused to take a letter from Mrs. Likens' desk. Friends of Mrs. Likens testified Miss Dwyer gave them to understand Mrs. Likens was removed because she was eugaged in an immoral business. Police Commissioner Barnes said President Mnllins produced the Parr letter before the board and declared it proved her an improper person for the office of matron. Mr. Barnes replied that the letter contained nothing derogatory to Mrs. Likens. She was never notified to appear in regard to the matter. MoUlnn' tetter In Evidence. Mr. Johnson pnt in evidence President Mullins' letter to the Rocky Mountain News in which he announced: "Should the very ardent defenders of Mrs. Likens desire further information as to tbe reasons why Mrs. Likens was chosen as the one to be sacrificed to reduce expenses in the department, they can obtain such information, by calling upon the fire and police board who are reluctant to submit these matters to the public press." Mr. Mnllins denied having written that portion of the letter quoted, but ac fcnowledged having attached hhsigna ture to it. A few more witnesses were examined but gave unimportant testi tnony, after which the hearing adjourned for the day. Governor Waite will nex take the stand. Governor Waite's ap pearance 'and conduct throughout the day was that of a man at peace with th world. Will Entertain Nempapmr Men. PITTSBUBO, Aug.

The details are given in the following special correspond* ence: APIA, Samoa, Aug. JO.— The warships of Great Britain and Germany have at ast taken action, with a view to ending he native disturbances which have here- ofore appeared to be interminable. Two kirmishes had taken place between the warring tribes, resulting in the killing if eight or ten natives and the wounding of many more. Besides, the natives had become short of food, not having planted or looked after their crops, and they had aken to stealing from, foreigners hroughout the islands. Their mode 01 iving had produced a great deal of illness, much suffering and many deaths, so that in the interests of common humanity the interference of the powers jecame absolutely necessary. Some- hing had to be done to put a stop to the eocalled warfare. Shelled tlie Fortifications. It was with this end in view that the diplomatic and naval officials held eev eral conferences. The ultimate result was a resolution to notify the rebels hat they must disperse from their forti led stronghold at Latnannu or suffer i shelling from the guns of the warships. On Friday, Aug. 10, tbe British warship uracoa and the German warship Buzzard left Apia for Latnnannu. When they arrived there, the rebel chiefs were called on board tbe gunboats and in- 'onned that their stronghold would be Kimbarded at 9 o'clock on the following morning. During Friday night, however, the rebels evacuated the court. On Saturday morning the fortifications were shelled by the warships and all do stroyed. The king's warriors had been sent overland toco-operate with thegun- joats in the attack on the rebels. When :he bombarding gunners had finished ;heir work, King Malietoa'a warriors were signaled to advance and occupy :he deserted position. Before tbe rebel warriors evacuated Latnannu, they set fire to all tbe huts in the vicinity, as well as to their fort, the destruction oi which the bombarders finished. Open Fire Upon the Rebel*, The naval authorities again communicated with the rebel chiefs and orderec them to disperse and surrender their rifles. Instead of obeying tbe mandate, ttowever, the rebel band moved off to wards Aluafata, which is less than 16 miles from Apia, and it was decided to again advance upon them. On Sunday morning tbe rebels and tbe king's war riors, who numbered fully 000, came together at Lufilun. The rebels made the attack aud killed and wounded sovora' of Malietoa's men. . During all of San day there was desultory fighting, and the naval commanders resolved to again attack the rebels and deal with them summarily. Early on Monday morning Ang. V 1H, the Curacoa and Buzzard changed their positions and again oponec fire upon tbe rebels, killing and wound ing a large number. Simultaneously the king's warriors attacked them on shore In the fight the king lost six killed ant several wounded. At this writing it IB impossible to obtain a reliable estimate of the rebel loss but it is known to have been heavy. The guns on the warships did deadly exeou lions. On Monday evening tho rebels sued for peace. Their chiefs were cr dered to come on board the Curacoa on the following day. They obeyed th order and made promise of complete sub inisaiou to Halietoa'a rule, agreeing pay their taxes, return to their homes and to deliver up 100 rifles. Immediately after this meeting the Curaco stfjinied away to Apia, believing tba tbe trouble waa over. The Curacoa' commander wan eager to catch the mat steamer Muriposa that ho might repor the result of bis operation to the BritUI government. Tho Buuard remained a the scene of action to receive the rifles from the rebels and to tee that the; curried out their promise. lUtwl* railed to Kw>i» Their Word. Great was the surprise of the ^o mander of the Curacoa when, at tuiti night, tbe Buuard signalled that Ohle Tumuuutto, leader of the Aana rebels, ha joined thu Atua party with over 4W wen nud, that these combined forces ha attacked the king'* warriors. Through out the night the roar of the Buuard' guns could be heard. TUuraduy morn ing the Curacoa got under way tigalu an left for tho sueue of the trouble. Cap tain Gibson left dotormiwed to deinau complete surrender of the rebels and uu lc*w tho rebels are submissive th slaughter will undoubtedly bu terrible his gunner* will tiro to kill. It is now cevtaiu that unless vigorous uutiou taken the position of the foreigners hen will be critical, At the hour of tho sal iug of the Mwiposu, it U reported th rebels have iiuido complete surrender but the minor lucks confirmation.
