What is voudooismf
Tha whole subject of vaudaux, as tha word
Is spelled In Uayti, is a delicate and offensive
oue to the pooplo. It was forewarned that it
is cunsiUored (ad form to introduce the topic
in converwUon among the upper clasbea. I
asked for an explanation.
Decauee it is true tLat voutloolsra and its
occatJooaJ concomitant, t-aruiitialism, prevail
verjrwhure and Iinytiaim of intelligence and
ducatioo are wlmmMl of it. They do not
like to be thought U-yonJ the pale of canni
balistic pnu-tw-cn merely because they have
been taught bettor. Vou will never meet a
mulatto among the worshipers of the ser
pent, and it is rare thut a negro pntHeaang

outwardly profww solely from politic mo
tives. Tho lute lYesident Kalnave, a mulatto,

but be won a polilifuui seeking the support of

TUX BELIEF AXD PRACTICES.
The explanation becomes of Interest because
Spencer St John in his took on Uayti cbargea
Salnavr with vaiulauxUra. My informant
was a mulatto who nw an intimate
knowledge of Hoytian affairs. The adoration
of serpents is a beathun religion Imported
from thejunslas of Africa, Officers of the
First West India regiment of the British
army, who have done long service on tho gold
coast, have given to me a detailed description
of voudooism as it there prevails under the
name of vtxlun. There Is appur-. y but lit
tle difference in the disgusting rices, exnept
that the horrible orgy which follows many of
the Haytian meetings is not met with among
the votaries on the native heath of voudoo
ism. The story of Vaudaux is too well known to
be recounted in detail here. Sufficient to
mention that it is tho religion of a considera
ble portion of the savage tribe- of Africa.
In the kingdom of Dahomey hundreds of
thousands of human victims have first and
last been offered up to tho yellow god. Iu
Ashantee the serpent is posse-sud of super
natural powers in the minds of the followers
of Obi There is a large yellow snake which
is nsed as the medium of the mystorious power
of VoutUai. "Vaudaux is the God on high,
but the ail powerful controller of the negro's
universe 'deigns to employ intermediaries,
and the serpent becon.es the black saagp's
Jesus of Nazareth. The priest of Vaudaux is
called popaloi, a corruption of papa roi (papa
king). He shares his regal honors with a
dusky da mo, who is pmerally his "placed"
wife, as they say in Uayti, which means no
wife at all in a legal or religious sense. She
it known as rnniuanloi, and that sho plays a
highly Important part in the midnight con
clave will be seen as this story proceeds.
If you are a waUe at a late hour of the even
ing at Port au Prince, you will hear a dull,
monotonous sound wafted down the heavy
air from the direction of that portion of the
town which ties near the plain of the Cul-de-Sac,
It is the noise of tho bam bo ul a, or
Congo drum weird, uncanny and sugges
tive. The beats are slow and at regular in
tervals. Black men and women dance the
uncouth measures they witnessed in their
childhood, the same as their fathers and
mothers beheld in their childhood In Africa,
To dance the basiboul is one of the few ap
parent pastimes tho llartiaa negro enjoys,
The drum is also an invariable associate of a
auda-ix meeting. Without it tho black man
would be bereft of bis closest intimate friend.
The papaloiscall their meetings at night
tttne, generally at a late hour. The place is
secret to all save the initiated, and as a rule
only the initiated can by any mtans secure
attendance. The mystery is no doubt a
legacy of the French colonial days, when the
assemblage of a vaudaux circle was a crime,
punishable by death or terrible whippings.
The vaudaux rites of that period were not
attended by sotno of the horrible excesses
which mark those of the present day. Ac
cording to St. Alary and Cher writers canni
balism was unknown, and tho principal ob
jection nrged by the Trench law makers woe
the danger of conspiracies against the whites
rfting concocted when many slaves were
drawn together uncontrolled by the preeence
of thfiir masters.
BACnirrcts or elood.
Is Uayti at tho present timo, by a careful
estimate based on the expressed opinions of a
number of residents of tho Wand, there are
uw one-half the population directly under
the sway of the papalois. The great majority
of the believers ore of the harmless wing of
the socioty, who satisfy themselves with
offering to tho serpent a white goat or several
of the white long tailed cocks which are a
cross between the game fowl and the Leg
bora bread. Tho minority, in cases of, to
them, extreme importance demand the
tamer sacrifice. In the tOang of the papalois
the "goat without horns" can only assuage
the indignation or tho indilTcrenco of Vau
daux. The "goat without horns" is a human
being, a child, whose life blood is spilled over
the altar on wh ;b the medium of Vaudaux,
a ternl-torpld sc-pent, rests. According to
papalois tenets there is no crime that cannot
be condoned; no desire which may not be ao-
campusnea; no earthly nuppmoss which may
sot be attained, and no enemy too powerful
to be crushed if the faithful believer pros-
traies nunscir not ore tee serpent and anointa

There have been three presidents of Haytl
who have consented to radical measures
being employed to check the cannibaiistio
tendencies of a portion of the population.
The late President GeErard, whose family at
present reside in a fine "pen" near Kingston,
Jamaica, endeavored to extirpate vaudaux
Ism. Gen. Boisrond-Canal during bis short
interregnum was an astute opponent of the
rites of the serpent, and the late President
Salomon likewise in his crafty way evinced a
desire to rid Uayti of her crowning shame.
The Emperor Faurtia, or Soulouquo, was a
member of the Vaudaux society, and Gen.
Domingue, who was president in lST4-o, wes
an active follower. He was a bora African
and was undoubtedly the most ignorant and
savage ruler the llaytiiuis were ever cursed
with. His nephew, Septimus R&ineau, whose
murderous deeds havi ben recounted in the
course of this correspondence, was popular
during the period of his infamous occupancy
of the position of prime miniatu under Do
xnlague. I nave been assured in Haytl that the oppo

NYE AT NIAGARA.
Be Crave, a Storm and Interviews Fo-
I We visited the falls on theday of the blizzard
which wrecked Reading and which wound
up by tipping the suspension foot bridge at
Niagara Into the river below. The falls have
been visited in summer and in winter, in the
I broad glare of day and the soft and mellow
moonlight, but very few people have gone
there during a blizzard.
The day broke moist and measly at Buffalo,
but at coon the gray and choppy clouds scat
tered a little and a patch of sky could now
and then be discovered. Eating a hasty meal,
our party, arrayed in alpenstocks and con
scious rectitude-, began the ascent from
Buffalo by a circuitous route. We reached
Niagara Falls station, whence we proceeded
by drrwity to our chalet. Here we alighted.
The chalet is kept by a native American, and
after our long journey from Buffalo it was
good to once more bear the music of our own
language. Hastily eating a light lunch, we
put on our topcoats, and in charge of a John
Durm we proceeded by diligence- towards the
, falls via the American side.
The Ktorm now burst upon us in all its
fury, and the rain descended In the wildest
profusion, saturating the falls and rendering
them well nigh impassable. Our muleteer
covered himself with bis pontoon, wrapped
bis tarpaulin around his ears, and while our
' slender diligence swayed in the blast be
' drove us across to Coat Island. The thunder
of tho immonse volume of water was now
swallowed up by the mighty roar of the
bursting tempest, and then, as it died away
like the wail of a perishing soul, one would
again hoar the sullen thunder of the great
' American dam site.
We cow begaa the descent on the side of
Goat Islnnd looking towards the Great Hone
FalL The rain fell in torrents, and as our
I umbrellas had been turned wrong side out by
the blast, we wore soon wet to th skin. There
we stood in the presence of the greatest spec
tacle Amorica can produce, perhaps, outside
of congress. Liko an egotistical author Nia
gara for centuries has been pouring over its
own works. It is really, however, beyond
criticism. I went there thinking that if the
Falls really deserved scathing, I would erath
them through the press and injure their busi
ness; -but I must say that, like Mr. Booth,
they deserve their great success, and I do not
blame them for respecting themselves and
having their pictures taken every little while
and getting their names in the papers. They
deserve all the glory they have gotand far
be it from me to put a straw in tho way of
the progress of Niagara Falls.
We next went down to the Whirlpool, and
on the way a detachment of John Diirms es
corted us with an air of suspicion. Our
drofcky driver evidently watched us every
moment like a cat. At the whirlpool we
alighted again, being narrowly watched by
tho driver and a John Darm from Cohoes.
Here as we reached Jthe brink of tho cliff
the blizzard struck us atnidshin, and the
great Niagara wfticb bos assisted so many
temperance lecturers in scaring to death the
moderate drinker seemed to become silent la
the presence of old Mr. Bhzzard, from the
wild and unkempt west. Just then my high
silk bat, which 1 wear in ascending the Alps
and doing the tourist act generally, went up
into a large bl-ie hole in the-sky, and while I
was watching it the square red remark,
"Keep o7 the grass," with an iron rod oa ono
side, swatted me across the organ of alimen
tivenffss. Tho etarni was cow at Its height. The roof
of the hotel gantly lifted with the breeze, and
through the fast falling rain we could see a
surprised gentleman in his room Just emerg
ing through the neck lend of a bright new
shirt. With a look of horror and wonder be
tried to pull down the roof again and conceal
himself, but he could not do so.
The storm now took off Its coat and
shrio'jed, while the Whirlpool was lashed to
ia greatest fury, and ct the Whirlpool bazar

waters, when I felt the grasp of a gendarme

"Monsieur fool haomsclf!"1 said the John
Darm in pure EuCaJo French, with a slight
patois, of the r.ue do Main street. Then
grinding bis teeth be managed to make me
understand that I had stated in Buffalo that
"1 was going over the falls and through the
whirlpool," but that a nemesis was on my
trail. It Is very disagreeable to have your
trail stepped on by a nemesis, and so I ex
plained that I meant to be figurative, and so,
when the John Darm had opened my over
coat and found that I was not dressed in
tights with double leaded bridge Jumping
sloes, be allowed me to past. It was here at
the bazar that I met my old friend Poco-
moco, of the Piute tribe of Indiana "And
what are you doing here, so far away from
home, Pocomocof I asked, in the light run
ning domestic accents of the Piute tongue.
"I am here," be replied in the sotno lan
guage, "to procure our regular supply of
Indian relics for the coming year. We can
not compete any longer with Connecticut In
tho manufacture of genuine Indian relics.
So we come to Niagara Falls for them. We
also get most of our ornamental bead work
done In England, and our ornamental mas
sacre business is done there too. The white

so the red man's goose Li practically cooked.
We buy all our weapons and headache sticks
now at New York. We get our bows and
arrows made at Water bury, Conn., and
Boston furnishes us with our lingerie.

we can make them, and why should
