FISHERMAN'S RIGHTS ARE
RESTRICTED AT PEARL HARBOR
Use of Dredged Channel For
bidden; No Fishing On
There will be no fishing in the wa
ters of I'carl Harbor channel, or in
waters adjacent, to the naval reserva
tion, from this date on. Admiral
Cowles, commandant of the naval sta
tion, this morning issued an order to
this effect's which nullifies any and
all fishing grants lor these waters,
that may have been issued under the
monarchy, no matter how long estab
lished by use and custom. The or
der, however, does not apply' to the
lochs and lagoons of Pearl Harbor not
directly under government control,
where fishing is the principal indus
try and one of the best sources of rev
enue to the land holders.
This ban on fishing in the dredged
channel is a regulation added to those
published by the commandant in a
circular letter sent out September 3
to General Macomb, Governor Frear,
the collector of the port and the har
bormaster. In a separate letter which
was prepared this morning, regulation
No. 5 is given as follows:
"All fishing vessels are prohibited
from working in the dredged channel
by day or by night."
"The object of this regulation,'' said
Admiral Cowles this morning, "is to
gtiard against fishermen blocking the
channel with boats or nets, and hold
ing up navigation. This applies only
to the dredged channel, and there is
no objection to fishing along the shore
line, except off the naval reservation.
We must not. however, take the
chance of the channel being tied up
in any way. and by congressional act
tiie regulating of traffic in the chan
nel is within the power of the Navy
Department. I received a cablegram
from Washington the other day, in
structing me to formulate regulations
to go iuto effect immediately, and 1
have done so."
The fishing rights of Pearl Harbor
form as knotty a tangle as the combi
nation of half a dozen fish lines and
a playful kitten could produce. Under
the old crow n grants, there w ere three
separate and distinct classes of fishing
rights given out. one covering fishing
from tne shore, a second fishing on
the bottom, and still a third class fish
ing in the open waters. This snarl
the navy officials have had to straight
en out so far as the reservation itself
is concerned, but. on the whole, the
fishing business of Pearl Harbor will
not be seriously interfered with.
To Keep Channel Clear.
In regard to the other regulations
framed by the commandant, the idea
is primarily to guard against blocking
of the channel by large vessels ground-

ing by day or night. Admiral Cowles
explains that it is not the intention,
lor the present, at any rate, to re
strict Honolulu shipping, such as
yachts, schooners, sampans, etc., but
that all deep sea vessels or interisland
ships will have to obtain permission
to enter the harbor.
The government holds absolute con
trol over the channel which it opened,
and as this is the key to the harbor,
the navy seems to have the final say,
and Its regulations to be the last word.
Following are the navy regulations
for Pearl Harbor, in full:
1. All traffic in the dredged chan
nel will be prohibited at such times
as the commandant, shall direct.
2. The passage of all ships in and
out of the dredged challen at night 13
