A SAMOA LAND CASE.
L PBE I'RESS ASSOCIATION.]
■ Auckland, May 26. Another great land case at Samoa between the Americans and Germans is to come before the High Court, recently constituted at Samoa by the treaty of "Berlin between America, England, and Germany. American citizens residing in the United States .claim 60,000 acres of the most valuable land for strategic purposes in the whole group. By the San Francisco Mail last Saturday, Mr W. Napier, barrister of this city, who has been successfully identified as counsel for the plaintiffs in the case Cornewall v McArthur and Co., has received a special retainer to act for the American claimants. The case is likely to be a cause celebre. Mr Napier has not yet decided to accept the retainer, as it would involve a long residence in Samoa and a visit to the United States.
