6 BLACKS ATTACK WHITES AT BAGGA Natives of Solomon Islands Start In to Exterminate All Whites Who Are Wedded to Native Wo men Horrible Murder. VICTORIA, 13. C, Doc. 17. Car ryinj? oht n vow to exterminate -nil whites innrriert to nntivos nnd their uffcprinjTf n hond-hnnting chief nmnod Sito, assisted by a mob of blacks murdered Joseph Binskin, n planter, his wife and two children and . several native sorvants at BajiL'a. Solomon Islands. The mas sacre took place in tho latter part of November and the news of tho occurrence was brought bv the steamer Aornngi which has just ar rived from the antipodes. Following the outbreak at Bnpgn. an attack was made by natives on tho tradiiiL station at Fisa which was successfully defended by tho British traders. The blacks rushed the sta tion -'and some who scrambled under the 4floor were setting fire to tho building when killed. Th'c- natives surprised the Binskin family on their plantation and they wereVlraek down with tomahawks and hacked in a horrible manner. A native boy who witnessed the massacre, swam across tho' bay to where some natives were employed on land belonging to Binskin and word was sent to T. Martin, a planter on Ronnrd Island, who arrived an hor.r after the murders. Tho sight on his arrival was shocking. If its a reasonable want, want ad vertising will supply it.

Imlcnl to the llrm's very best prosperi ty. 1 f the smallest Incident should bring clearly before Orde that Newmark might have an Interest In reducing profits he would know tho logic of tho latter's devious ways. For this reason Newmark did not dare make bad sales, nwkwatxl transactions. Tho protlts of the first year were not quite up to the usual standard, but they sutlleed. Xewmark's tlnesse cut In two tho ftwn's Income of the second year. Orde rusd himself. With his old time en ergy he hurried the woods work until an especially big cut gave promise of recouping tho losses of the year be fore. Newmark found himself strug gling agnlnst a forco greater than he had Imagined it to be. The end of the fourth year found Newmark puszled. Orde had paid reg ularly the Interest on his notes, now much he had been able to save toward the redemption of the notes themselves his partner was unable to decide. What Orde regarded as petty annoy ances had made the problem of pay ing for the Gallfornla timber a matter of great difficulty. A pressure whose points of support ho could not place was closing on him. Against this pressure he exerted himself. The mar gin of safety was not as broad as ho had reckoned. Rut In nny case. If worse came to worst, he could always mortgage the California timber for enough to make up the difference, and more. Against this expedient how ever, ho opposed n sentimental ob stinacy. It was Bobby's, and he ob jected to Incumbering It. Affairs stood thus in the autumn be fore the year the notes would come due. Navigation remained open Into November. No severe storms had swept the lakes. The barge and her two tows had made one more' trip than bad bceu thought possible. The weather continued so mild that Orde decided that they take on a load for Jones & Mauley of Chicago. "Did Intend to ship by rail." said be. "They're all 'uppers,' so It would pay all right. But wo can save all kinds of money by water, and they ought to skip over there In twelve to fifteen hours." Orde departed for tbe woods to start the cutting as soon as tho first belated snow should fall. To Newmark, sitting at his desk after Orde's departure, reported Cap tain Floyd of the steam barge North Star. "All loaded by noon, sir," he said. Newmark looked up In surprise. "Well, why do you tell me?" ho in quired. "I want your orders." "My orders? Why?" "This Is a bad time of year." ex plained Captain Floyd, "and the storm signal's up. All the signs ore right for a blow." Newmark whirled In his chair. "Are you afraid?" he sneered. Captain Floyd's countenance burned a dark red. "I ouly wanr your orders," was all ho said. "I thought we might wait to see." "Then go," snapped Newmark. "You heard Mr. Orde's orders to sail as soon as you wero loaded." Captain Floyd went out. Newmark urose and looked out of tho window. From the government's flagpolo he caught tho flash of red from the lazily floating signal. He was little weatherwise, and ho shook his head skeptically. Nevertheless it was a chance, and ho took It, as be bad taken a great many others. By Stewart Edward White taken In. and the doors, customarily wide open,-were now shut fust. "1 wonder where all the farmers' wagons are?" marveled the practical Mlna. "Surely they would not stay home Saturday afternoon Just for this wind!" Opposite tlundull's hardware store her curiosity quite mastered her. "Do stop!" she urged Carroll. "I want to run in and see what's the mat ter." sho was gone but a moment anil re turned, her eyes shining with excite ment. "Oh. Carroll." she cried, "there are three vessels goue ashore off the piers! Everybody's gone to see." "Jump in." said Carroll. "We'll drive out. Perhaps they'll get out the life saving crew." Carroll drove straight abend uutll Prince stood at the top of the plank road that led down to the bathhouses. Hero she pulled up. Carroll saw the lake, slate blue and angry, with whttecapped billows to the limit of vision. Along the shore were rows aud rows of breakers, leap lug, breaking and gathering again. These did not look to be very large until she noticed the twin piers reach ing out from tbe river's mouth. Each billow as it came In rose sullenly above them, broke tempestuously to over whelm the entire structure of their cuds and ripped lushorc along their lengths, the crest submerging as It ran every foot of the massive structures. "Look there out farther!" pointed Miua. Three little toy ships or so they seemed compared to the mountnlns of water lay broadside to Just Inside the farthest line of breakers. Two were sailing schooners. These had been thrown on their beam ends, their masts pointing at au angle toward the beach.
