The radical policy of reconstruction
continues to bear its legitimate fruit.
Lawlessness is tho rule at the tjouth,
and tho strong arm decides all political
questions. The will of tho majority is
no longer regarded. The ambitious
political demagogue who can with the
UreatoHt ability rtulT Inllot-boxcs, and
corrupt judges, and who having secured
his election in this way can give effect
to his corruption by inducing the fed
eral government to sustain him with
its bayonets, is tho man who rules at
the South. Louisiana is a lamentable
proof of this assertion, and now Arkan
sas rises as another witness. Tho
Southern states have been Moxicaiiizcd

has been formally tendered to Creat
Britain and it is not likely that gov
ernment will refuse the trust. Tho Pi
jis are the richest of the Polynesian
islands, and aro one hundred and lifty
fourin number; the area of the largest is
four thousand smiaic miles. The
group lies directly cast of Northern
Australia. 1 hoy were originally dis
covered by-Tasman in 11! .5, but were
practically unknown until IS 10. The
natives were cannibals of tho worst or

for the "human form divine" wheu
used by them as an article of food, and
.shipwrecked sailors, thrown upon their
shores, wore killed and ealeu by Ihcni
with the delight an epicure feels when
he is 'enjoying a peculiarly appetizing
and dainty dish. In IS 10, Commodore
Wilkes of tho American navv. then on
his celebrated expedition, stopped to
survey the islands and to chastise the
natives forexereisiri'' their cannibalistic
propensities upon shipwrecked sailors.
l wo ot Ins own olliecrs were murdered
and dished up lo serve the table of
Fijian royalty. Commodore Wilkes
took a tcrriblo and speedy vengeance,
and the natives were ulail in silo fur
peace. After his departure, they
grew more friendly to tho whites, and
Kuropeaus in no small numbers immi
grated to tho islands. As the reniem
brances of Commodore "Wilkes' visit be
came one of the things of the past, the
desire for "long pig" occasionally man
ifested itself, mid the white settlers
would have been forrcd to abandon the
islands had not French and Kuglish
war vessels visited them and kept the
rijians in check. American settlers
were treated atrociously, and in
the United f-'tatcs ship, Captain L'out
well, went out for tho purpose ot aveng
ing them. Ho burnt all tho coat
towns and was proceeding inland with
tho same chastisement, when Tliakom

cessation of hostilities, promising

lhakombau owed the United Stales
an indemnity of fnri,. .i

threatened that if a spmly way
of satisfying the debt was not indica

the islands. Among the settlers in
the islands are many F.i.glishn.en who
wero loth to see tho Fijis pass into the
hands of America. A company ol
Australian capitalists who sympathized
with tho Kuglish settlers, formed a Pi
