Medicine Men Torture a Young Girl to
Propitiate the Spirit That is Ruin
ing the Tribe.
Victoria, C. C, Juno 11. The In
diana living in the nei-hhorhood of the
npper watera of the Stewart river are in
a most deplorable condition. A terrible
famine prevails in that district, and the
unfortunate natives have already been
decimated for lack of food. Conditions
have been growing rapidly worse In thit
respect, and three miners who have jnt-t
reached here from that country say that
tlie pitiful scenes enacted among the
starving Indian beggars description.
They are now almost entirely w ithout
food of any kiud, and are now literally
perishing In great numbers. So hopeless
is the situation, that in a single small
Indian village no lest than thirty persons
died from hunger just previous lo the
departure of the prospectors for this
port. The miners who are authority h r
these statements declare that nnless
abundant supplies are immediately dis
patched lo the relief of Iheso famishing
and despondent people, their practical
extermination is inevitable. j
The same trio of returned miners also
tell a shocking story of the killing of an
Indian girl by a medicine man at the
instrtnc t oi fie chief of th tribe to which
the girl belonged. According ti the
story, the girl was made the victim of a
savage ceremony directed by the medi
cine man, under the oiders of the chief.
Her barbarous death w as for the purpose
of propitiating the great spirit which
had sent the famine, by the offering np
ol a living human sacrifice.
Troops will bo sent to the scene of the
outrage to arrest the murderers, and
bring those guilty of the crime to justice,
if they have not already paid the penalty
by the slower process of starvation.

Germany Hostile to; tbc Arbitration
Great Danger That the Schemes Before
the Peace Conference Will Fail.
Wamhsgtos, June 10. According to
private advices reaching here from The
Hague, there is great danger that one
and all arbitration tchernea before the
conference will fail. It is said Germany
is markedly hostile to the arbitration
principle, and is making an active can
vass to secure the support of tome of the
second-rate powers in the opposition.
If the movement is successful, even in
a limited degree, it it feared that arbitra
tion is doomed so far as this conference
is concerned, for, to carry any weight
and show practical results, the delegates
must be nearly unanimous.

Major-General Sir John Ardagb, of

Great Britain could not bind herself to

reserve the right of jndging of the ne

stipulations of that conference or this
conference in general order to her armies
in the event of war or in the event of
opening a campaign. Professor de
Martens replied that Russia did not ask
the power to sign a convention on
the Brussels conference, but deeired
