Sydney, Australia, Sept. 22. A
steamer arriving from the New Heb.
rides group, about 900 miles off the
northeastern coast of Australia, has
brought news of the murder of sis
persons by cannibals. The victims
were, a British trader named R. J.
Bridges, and at least five children,
whose bodies were found fearfully
mutilated with axes and knives, and
another child, who is missing, is be
lieved to have been carried off by the
cannibals and feasted upon. The mur
derers were thought to have come
from a village on Maleula Island,
where there are tribes of ' cannibals
who are bound by native custom to
kill and eat a human being in order
to keen un their rank. .
The failure of the French and Brit
ish punitive expeditions just before
the outbreak of the European war to
capture any -of the perpetrators of
similar crimes, and their immunity
from punishment for two years past
on account of the. war, ;ia thought re
cently to have emboldened the Cannibals.
