CARNIVAL OF CANNIBALISM - Inhuman Barbarities of Indians In Bolivia A Magistrate and Son Horribly Horribly Tortured Many Lives Lost by Shipwreck. Panama, Aug. 16. The Star and Herald prints the followiog details of the recent double murder by Indians m Bo livia: The Indians of Carangas killed the magistrate of tho court of Oruro, Seuor Arcc, ana his son who was with him. The unfortunate man seeing tho menaciug attitude of the Indians, took refuge in a priest's house, which was surrounded by the Indians, who threatened to set fire to it. Having held a council of martyrdom they resolved that the life of the sou should be taken first, and in the presenco of the father they clipped out his tongue, extracted his eves, and otherwise tortured him until he was dead. As the blood flowed from the body they caught it in horn cups and drank it with avidity. They then cut the father to death In a like horrible manner. A carnival of cannibalism was then held over the bodies until tho flesh was eaten to the bones. This account of such inhuman barbar ities occurring within the region of civilization is almost incredible. This story nlso seems to cxplaiu the reason for a report that it was ex - rrcsident Arco who is at Present in Chile, who had been assassinated, but as has been made known already, it was a namesake of his that was the victim of these Indians, and the unfortunate magistrate was the man.
