COULD MAKE NO DEFENSE White Men Attacked While Clean ing Their Dismembered Rifles--One Escapes.

It seems that the steamer which carried the expedition to the island of St. Matthias left after a few days for Herbertsch, New Britain, to get fresh supplies. During its absence, the savages, who had hitherto ap peared friendly, although known to be rabid cannibals, planned to kill the party. The plot was carried out one morn ing while the members of the expedi tion, who had a body guard of 40 drilled Papuans, were cleaning their rifles, which they had taken apart. Suddenly 80 of the islanders broke from the bushes, raising fierce war cries and brandishing spears, with which they stabbed to death the lead er of the party, Dr. Meneken, his sec retary, Herr Carro, and a white sail or, who was asleep under a tent. Dr. Heinroth emptied his revolver into his assailants, while the bodyguard in the meantime retired to the boats with the wounded and Dr. Heinroth, leaving the dead. The boats put off to another island. no tfar distant where an expedition ary party rescued them. Subsequently the survivors returned to the Island of St. Matthias, where they found that the bQdies had been devoured }. the .mn mh.Mnlw.+1 u.ý IN THE MARTS O- TRADE.
