From advices received from Papeete, Tahiti, it is learned that the 90 islands, known variously as the Low archipelago and the Tuamotu group, are destined to be reclaimed by the Pacific ocean, says a San Francisco report. Last January they were swept by a sudden flood of high tidal waves from the ocean and tlie lesser ones crumbled into the lagoons and in consequence nearly 6,000 of the inhabitants of the islands were drowned and property to the value of $1,500,000 was destroyed. And now. six months later, fierce gales from the southw est and southeast have again caused great crests to sweep over the islands. So far only four persons are believed to have perished, but the fear is great that when all the islands -• are cleared there may be a distressing ' list of facilities - The steamer Excelsior suffered much damage during the series of gales while she was on her way from Tahiti to the Marquesas group. Three of the Tuamotu islands were under water to such an extent that the inhabitants had to climb cocoanut trees for safety. Houses and stores, copra O n fl finollv t bn nnnnnniitn nrovA <la stroyed. while the inhabitants had a close call of death.
