REPORT OF TAE SECRETARY OF STATE.

To the PRESIDENT :

tu tiansmitting to the President, tvith a view to laying it before the Senate, the general act concerning affairs in the Sämöati Islands, which was signed at Berlin on June 14, 1889, the Secretary of State has the houor to make the following observations touching the negotiation of that instrument:

The correspondence transmitted to Congress by President Cleveland on the 8th of February last sbt forth the acceptance by the Government of the United States of the proposal of Prince Bismarck for the resumption at Berlin of the conference of representatives of the United States; Great Britain, and Germany for the pacific adjustment of affairs it Samoa, which was begun in Washington on June 21, 1887, and suspended on the 26th of the following month.

In a later communication, confidentially addressed to the Senate on the 27th of February last, the President made known the reasons whicb rendered it advisable to leave to the administration then about to assiime office the appointment of representatives of the United States at such renewed conferences.

On the 14th of March last, the President nominated, and on the 18th of the same month appointed, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, John A. Kasson, of lowa; William Walter Phelps, of New Jersey, avd George H. Bates, of Delaware, to be Commissioners to rep. resent the United States at the conference; and on April 12 following full powers were conferred upon the persons so appointed to meet the Coimissioners to be appointed on behalf of Germany and Great Brit. ain for the purpose of considering and adjusting in a friendly spirit all or any questions which should come before the said conference relating to or growing out of the condition of affairs which had lately existed and might still exist in the Samoan Islands affecting the rights, respectively, of the three countries, or their citizens or subjects, in those islands.

The Commissioners received ample instructions touching the nature and scope of the questions which it was thought would demand the attention of the conference, and the views of the President as to the steps proper to be advocated by the United States in settlement of all pending questions connected with Samoa. They were instructed to be governed in the fulfillment of their inission by the most earnest assurance that the Government of the United States desired a speedy and amicable solution of all the questions involved ; that while it would steadily maintain its full equality of right and consideration in any disposition of these questions, it was as much influenced by an anxious desire to secure to the people of Samoa the conditions of a healthy, prosperous, and civilized lifo as it was bound by its duty to protect the rights and interests of its own citizens wherever their spirit of lawful enterprise might carry them; that, in the co-operation of the three Governments, the President hoped and believed that frank and friendly consultatiou would strengthen their respect for each other, and the result prove that it was not the wish of any of them to subordinate the rights of the native Samoans to the exigencies of a grasping commerce or to the political ambition of territorial extension on the part of any one of the powers maiutaining treaty relations with them. They were further instructed that in consenting, at the request of the Emperor of Geruany, to re opeu, at Berlip, the adjourned proceedings of the Conference:
