THE DAILY HULLETIN. MARCH 12, 1895.
TUE CONDITION OF SAMOA.
A Chat with a Modical Missionary
nt Sydtiey, Australia.
"I hnvo boon unpaged in mission
nry work in tlio iiamh since 1SG0, '
saitl tlio Ik v. Dr. Davk'j, of tlio
London Missionary Sociuty, who ar
rived in Sydney by tlw John Wil
liams on Monday, and was jwm by n
"Daily Telegraph" reporter yester
day. "Dnriii the early portion of
my resivleneo there tlio tendency
wa towards a slight increase in tl.o
native population. Now, however,
it is rather the other w.iy. What
wiili the two attacks of influenza
and an attack of menle, from eauh
of which the natives suffered heavily,
combined with the looses directly
and indirectly traceable to the war?,
the population lias of late years been
showing signs of decrease. Origin
ally, the population was thought to
be much larger than it really was.
The flist census shout d it to bo
about .T.'.OOO. From that it increased
to Hl.OUUor tfo.lKX). Atthepreseut
time it is below that, 1700 or 1800
having been swept away by measles
alone. Still, the decrease is slow,
ami had it not boou for those killed
in battle and those who died from
the result of exposure during the
wars, I am not sure that we should
have had to chrouido a decrease at
"Are the people more religious to
day than they wore 23 years agnj"
"1 cannot say that they are. They
all attended service then. Ami what
I fool is that with the many advorso
influences that have been at work in
the islands during recent years, the
wonder is that religion has been
maintained as well as it his. In
some respocts the Samoau has im
proved. He is belter oduculed to
day thau he was a quarter of a cen
tury ago; and with the exception of
'liond-liuuting' that goes on in time
of war, I think that the grosser
forms of wickedness are not so ap
parent as they were. Night dances
were much more common at one
time than they are to day, and al
though mm get rid of their wives
occasionally, polygamy, at ouo time
quite the rule, has practically come
to an end. This is good, as far as it
goes. Still, as 1 caul before, no peo
ple could help but retrograde under
political conditions like those pre
vailing at the present time. Tlio
trouble is that the Samoaus never
kuow what is going to happen. They
do not. kuow whether they are going
to be allowed to light or whether
the Powers are going to interfere in
the interests of peace. Sometimes
the Powers let them begin to light,
and then step iu and send them
back to their homes. Nor is there
much prospect of a better stale of
affairs, so long as the representatives
of three different nations have to
meet and disuius matters before they
can take action.
"If you ask mo what I think of '
tho islands, politically, I must say I
that they are iu a wretched state. !
1'ractically, we have uo laws at all,
except iu the Municipality of Apia;
and the consequence of that is that!
a number of murders have been '
committed during the last few years '
for which nobody has beeu punished.
A code of criminal laws was made 1
by Mr. Cedercrautz a few years ago.
They were translated and printed, '
but, with tho exception of those re-
latiug to treason, they have beeu a ,
dead letter, i have never kuowu
the islands with so little law iu force '
ns at the present time. The old
Samoau club law has gone, ami there
is nothing to replace it. To me, it'
is perfectly clear that the existing I
treaty will never work. There is no i
cohesion, no continuity iu the form 1
of government established under it.
In some respects the Powers have ,
done too much; iu other respects too i
little. The islands undoubtedly I
ought to be placed under tho cou-1
trol of one l'ower only. As a Brit
isher, of course, I should say that
that l'ower ought to bo Great
Britain; but, after all, that is a point j
upon which I do not care to express
au opinion. The one redeeming !
feature of tho Berlin Treaty is the
International Laud Commission,
which, ou the whole, has dono its
work remarkably well."
I n conclusion, Dr. Davies said that
the various rumors appearing in tho
press from time to time about the
insecurity of European life iu Samoa
wore quito unworthy of crodonco. ,
He did not believe that tho lives of I
foreigners woro loss secure to-day I
than they were 20 or 30 years ago. I
Indeed, tho English, America and
Gorman ships of war were stationod i
at Apia ohielly for their protection.
