BERLIN, May 11

Tho ' Allgemeine Zeitung,' in an article on Samoan affairs, suggests that America should abandon Pagopago Harbor and convert Suwarrow Island, on which the British flag has recently been hoisted, into a coaling station. The paper declares that the Samoan Conference is arranging for the appointment of an adviser to the King of Samoa to represent each Power, and tho term of office of each to be for one year. May 12. At the sitting of the Samoan Conference yesterday the report of the Committee appointed to inquire into the question was approved. Mr Kasßon, American Minister at Berlin and one of the delegates at the Conference, in a speech on the fight which took place between the German sailors and Samoans under Mataafa, exonerated the latter from any blame in the matter, and he refused to agree to the demand of Germany for redress from Mataafa.
