snu Francisco, Cal., March IS.
The steam Mariposa which arrived
j from Australia lately brought addi
, tlonal news of the typhoon and tidal
i wave at Pearl Island group in the
j middle of January. The French gov
j ernnient investigated the disaster and
i found that about 600 Islanders per

j ty loss is half a million dnllnrs.
After the wind had subsided ami tuo
waters receded hundreds of drowned
natives were found tied to trees about j
the places. Hiquerti, one of the is- (
lands visited by the deluge, was best
able to understand Its force, ns its j
highest place is but 12 feet above the j
ocean. The residents flocked to the
heights and sought safety by binding
themselves to rocks and trees. There
they remained for three or four days, j
during which the storm swept over j
the dreadful scene.
The islands of Hao, Morakau and
Hiqueru are virtually washed away, ,
as they are present a little above the
sea level and are destitute of vege
tation. On them a man cannot sub
sist, as the soil has vanished. The
cocoanut trees are dried up and dead.
On the awful night of .January 15,
during the darkness and driving down
pour of rain, parents tied their little
children to their backs and sought
safety. Over their heads rolled a
mighty wave, and when the surges re
treated the infants and half gTown
boys and girls succumbed. A father
or mother would vainly endeavor to
retain the corpses of the dead, but
usually at length had to abandon
