1 The Times’s ’ Berlin correspondent says a hitch has arisen at the Samoan Conference, the American delegates disapproving of the form which the proposal for foreign control of the group has taken. They also disapprove of the German intention to inflict punishment on Mataafa. The police prevented a Boulaugist meeting at Angouleme yesterday, and arrested twenty-four persons, including MM. Paul Deroulede and Laguerre. It is rumored in St. Petersburg that the Shah of Persia and the Czar have signed a secret convention, by which the province of Dhorassam will be ceded to Russia in the case of war. In the event of the Shah submitting his commercial policy to Russian revision, Russia undertakes on her part to uphold the present Persian dynasty. The Shah has arrived in Berlin on a visit to the Emperor William. Prince Bismarck had previously met him at Vazzin. At the inquest on the body of Dr Cronin it was proved in evidence that Patrick Egan was a member of the Executive of the Clan-ua-Gael Society.
