Bismarck in consequence considered a duty the part zip rating governments to put an end by the agreement treaty Powers to the troubles w hich had originated in Samoa by restoration peace among the samoans themselves and to make an end future bloodshed and the horrors a civil War conducted Barbar Ous cruelty among the natives. The Best remedy scent d to be a resumption the consultation which took place Between the representatives Germany England and the United states in 1687 at Washington and at that time adjourned without any their representatives com a to any agreement. Thi last conference had taken i lace at Washington end according to the equal rights the three treaty Powers it seemed proper that the place for the negotiation should change in regular turn. Count i Arco was directed to invite the government the United states to a conference regarding Samoa to take place at Berlin a s Mil amp a invitation having been sent to the British government. He was also directed to declare that any sup pcs ton that Germany would not feel satisfied with a Neutral pos Tion in the samoan islands was unfounded. Germany did not intend to put in question the Independence the Island group nor the equal rights the treaty Powers. She simply desired to create a condition which offered permanent Security for bringing to an end by it shei and Decap tuition and which would Grant permanent safety to the commercial interests the three treaty Powers in Samoa. A next Day Secretary Bayard wrote to count Arto announcing that the president accepted Germany s proposal for a conference with a View a establishing peace the basis rec Zed Independence for Tho samoan islands and the equal rights the three treaty i the Secretary said that the sooner such conference could be begun the better in View the a Kiaie deplorable scenes bloodshed in Samoa and it appeared to be essential that la the meantime a truce should be forthwith proclaimed. It is declared that a a Contention arms by such a a Canty band As the samoans the vat armaments Germany has course but one result assured in Advance and would be manifestly futile. There no feature Equality in such a it was accordingly suggested that the three treaty Power should at once Telegraph instructions to Samoa suspending belligerent action the part respective officers. The Secretary adds a the announcement the conference Between the treaty Powers it is confidently expected will at once cause a cessation hostilities among the natives and their speedy election a King would certainly be a Long step toward Harmony. Except As the condition May be changed by a free election a King by the natives it a deemed essential that the affairs in Samoa should remain in state quo pending the conference. The statements you read to me As emanating from the German Consul at Samoa in which he finds fault with the conduct capita n Leary the nips a and . Blacklick the United states Consul As violative the instruct this government to maintain an impartial attitude in the conflicts in Samoa do not appear to be substantiated by an averment any personal knowledge the facts but must have been based upon informal and belief Only Are reported at second hand and must be classed As merely hearsay eve Deuce. Much allowance must be made for the excitement prevail a in Samoa which is not favourable to accuracy moderation statement spec ally those concerned As the protocols the conference Between the United states Germany and England which began at Washington july Jjo 1887, show that at the first meeting a memorandum was submitted be hair the United states. It provided for the Independence and autonomy the kingdom the Samoa for a native King and respect for native customs and traditions. It further provided for a Constitution also that the foreign consuls should retain Crim Nal Over their countrymen and that each the treaty Powers could alternately keep a Man War in samoan Waters four months in each year. The German n sier said that Mafutoa notoriously violated Bis treaty obligations that the samoans were incapable a staining peace and order and therefore he suggested an advisor to the King this advisor to a act As the mandatory the three Powers. He acknowledged absolute Equality treatment in respect Commerce navigation jurisdiction and All other matters. The British Nister favored an International land court and an unaltered consular jurisdiction As Malietoa and tamases were then at War. At the Oen Ference Only 2 . Bayard said he understood that All agreed that present treaties should be retained that the native government was to to established and assisted to maintain itself and that Means for raising Revenue should Vised. Germany and England that there should he Only and a Council chiefs but the in Ted states suggested a King a you Natl chief and a representative legislative Assembly elected by the people. The German minister urged that if there was such a legislative Assembly it should to get merely consultative without a deciding vote. The United states in View existing treaties and declarations made by consuls proposed the continued recognition mini a off and ta�6e As vice g.
