MALEKULANS NOT ALL BAD
Pugnacious South Pacific Islanders
Scrupulously Honest, Though
Careless of Human Life.
Tho sending of a sfnnll nnvnl forctf
to Mulekuln Island, In the New Heb
rides, for the protection of planters
ngnlnst tho nntlves brings some Inci
dental Information about n pccullnr
people with tho undesirable fame of
being the most bellicose inhabitants
of nny. Island In the South Pacific.
Mnlekuln island has long been under
the joint control of France nnd Eng
land, nnd nt intervals some dlsplny
of force 1ms been necessary to 'make
the Islnndera respect tho locnl repre
sentatives of n more advanced civil
ization. Desplto their reputation for
pugnacity, however,, there is much, de
clares a recent writer, to be said for
tho Malckulnns. For one thing, they
nro remarkably honest; the traveler
who goes among them knows thnt
however he may fare ns regards per
sonal safety, no is In no danger what
ever of losing his personal property.
And If lie Is careful not to Irritate his
hosts, ho Is likely to come nwny with
n pleasant memory of tho natlvo vil
lage community, Its discussions ot
community affairs In u kind of vlllngo
fonnn, its dances, and its children's
playground under thoabanynn tree.
Ho learns niso thnt many of the vil
lages have n social, club for men nnd
that tho 'under, w'ho Is also n crack
mnrksmni. with bow nnd arrow, takes
great satisfaction In belonging to It.
