Land claims iu Fiji wro filed
in tho State lXp irtuiunt at Wash
ington beforo tho close of Mr.
Cleveland's administration. They
Wlouy to a largo number of
claims preferred iu appeal from
tho decision of a British Laud
Commission nearly twenty years
ho, the chtiinnnts being Amoricau,
British and Gorman. Priuco
Bismarck whon Chancellor in
sisted upon an investigation of
the German claims, which result
ed in the award of many thous
ands of pounds as compensation
to the Germans whoso titlos had
been dibiillowed by the Com mis
sion. American and British
claimants have etill their griov
anco to nur&o. The British hope
that tho United State Govern,
tnent will push tho matter to
settlement, for, as a writer in the
Sydnoy Telegraph puts it, "if the
Americans succeed, as succeed
they must should tho matter be
pressed home, with these and the
Germans compensated, for very
shame's sake tho despoiled
Britishor will bo accorded a right
to provo his title before an im
partial tiibuual." Tin entire
merits of tho case would raako too
long a stoiy for these columns.
For about twenty years bofore the
British annexation of tho group in
1874, many foreigners entored
and leased or bought land from
the chiefs who held under a foudal
tenure. Conveyances were loose in
many instances, sometimes being
made to more than one buyer f
the same land. It was to sottle
tho resulting tangle that the Com
mission sat after annexation. For
a time titles wore being ratified on
proof of salo givon by the
chiefs who sold, hut aftor a
while tho Governor, Sir Arthur
Gordon, who as head of the Com
mission had absolute power, aibi
trarily changed the basis of title.
It should bo stated that the lauds
wero to be apportioned in throe
divisions, namely 1, lands alien
'ated to foreigners by bona fide
salo; 2, lands occupied by trihes
or required for the probable sup
port of chiefs or tribes, and, 3,
Crown lands the entire remaind
er. Sir Arthur, whon tho work
had advanced Bomowhat, saw that
so much had "been alienated there
would be little or no Crown lands
left. Ho therefore decreed that
tho tenure of land from which tho
titles wero to dorivo should bo the
piehistoiic patriarchal tonuro in
stead of tho foudal touuro obtain
ing at the time of tho white man's
occupation. Thoncoforth the at
testers to tho title of claim
ants had to bo tho lineal
descendants of the nnoient
patriarchal occupiers of tho laud
and not the chiefs who sold to the
applicants for title. It thus hap
pened that tho evidonco of a mau
living on a difforent i-iland from
that on which a particular pieco
of laud was situated, that ho had
never consented to the salo in
question, was enough to have a
claim disallowed. As an instance of
tho wholesale despoiling of titles
bought with good money, it is
mnntioneil that a siuglo issue of
thu Ito'yal Gazette gave notice of
' 112 (linnllownticon. Tho nptionr-
iui co of Atueriuuu land claims in n
British colony of tlio South Soas'
ia iu itself ono of tho most intor
osting things that Jiavo cropped
up for aoiUB time iu tho diploma
tio relations of tho United States
and Great Britain.
Upon tho second reading of a
bill in tho IIouso ot Commons,
lately, making it compulsory to
mark imported agricultural pro
duce so as to show tho cottutry
of origin, a startling theory was
advanced. J. K. Wingfiold
Digby, who seconded tho motion
for second reading, said that
foreign meat was being sold as
Euglish, and medical tostiraony
showed that frozon meat was
valueless as a sustenance, and that
cousumors woro liable to cancer
aud other diseases. James Bryce
condemned tho attack upon ntrado
so important to tho colonies. Dr.
I?. Farquharson denied that tho
consumption of frozen meat was
conducive to cancer. So. if the
member who propounded the dis
quieting theory spoke truly, tho
mattor is left iu the category of
subjects on which doctors differ,
and there you are I
Profit sharing bids fair to ro
ccivo a strong impetus at the An
tipodes, if not elsewhere, from tho
example of tho Uuiou Steamship
Company of Now Zealand. Notice
was given that the matter was to
be submitted at an extraordinary
mooting of shareholders, which
was to have been hold in Uunedin
latoly. Tho sohomo was to inoludo
a system of insurance fo"r tho em
ployees of tho com piny. It was
hoped that tho adoption of tho
schemo would practically solvo
the question of strikes. As this
company furnishes ono of tho
steamers for tho Spreckuls con
tract for carrying mails between
tho Colonies aud San Francisco,
some of tho results of tho, profit
sharing schemo if adopted may be

the plea of the Premier of WestAus

a repetition of tho old sophistry
