LATEST FROM SAMOA. SYDNEY, October 23. (Received October 25,1889, at 1 p.m.)

The steamer Lubeck, from Samoa, reports that Malietoa, the King-elect, has been dangerously ill, but is now in a fair way to recoyery. Both the German and English Consuls have been instructed to recognise Malietoa as King. Typhoid fever is prevalent at Samoa, and twenty German sailors are down with it.

A serious disturbance has occurred at Savaii between the followers of Malietoa and ex-King Tamasese. The strength of each side was 300, and several were killed, while a number of others were injured. When the Lubeck left it was not known which side had won.

H.M.S. Egeria, which was at Tonga, has been ordered Home.
