VANCOUVER, B. C, Oct. C A re
markable story of cannibalism was
brought to Sydney, Australia, a few
days before the sailing of the steamer
Aorangl to this port, by the French

display of savagery was a native of
Hawaii, named Amaru, who acted as
orderly to the Immigration department
at Noumea, In the New Hebrides.
About six months ago Amaru mar

New HebridcB .group, and on passing
that island on tho second day ot the
voyage of the Jeanette to ono of tho
outlying Islands, he decided to visit his
wife's tribe. Accordingly the couple
were put off In a small boat, and it was
only a fow weeks ago that tho steamer
made a second call, and learned their

unfriendly shore, and were taken pris

snakes from which tho poison fangs
had been removed to attack tho man's
legs. Then a fire was made at his
feot, and his legs wero horribly
burned, though the Injury was super
ficial, so that tho victim would not dlo
undor the treatment. Thon ho was
mado a target for tho spears ot tho
tribesmen, who finally killed him. Ho
was torn to pieces and placed over a
