KENNETH C. 110ITEU
OF OUR GAME BIRDS
The letter from 'Sportsmen,",
published in another column, fur
nishes food 'for serious thought.
According to this writer's state
ments, and the statements of nu
merous other sportsmen who have
beeu approached on the subject,
the game birds of this island are
in danger, if not of complete ex
termination, at least of being so
depleted in number as to make it
necessary to prohibit all shooting
for years to come.
It is claimed by several sports
men, who are in a position to
know, that .Japanese and Fili
pinos in the outljing districts
I who have no hunting permits i,
are continually shooting and
trapping birds in and out of sea
There should be some means of
putting a stop to this unlawful
slaughter of birds. If there is no
appropriation available for the
employment of game wardens,
there should at least be some sort
of association or gun club, that
would lend its aid in stopping the
One way to remedy the situa
tion would be for the holders of
shooting ermits to bind them
selves into an organization for
the prevention of unlawful shoot
ing of game birds. The members
of this organization would be in
duty bound to report all cases of
unlawful shooting coming to their
It has been reported that a par
ty of sportsmen from Honolulu
recently went into the mauka
lands and shot everything they
saw, regardless of whether the
birds were in season or out. It is
reported that they did not even
have a license to shoot on Kauai.
A gun club composed of the
holders of shooting permits, from
all parts of the island, would be
in a position to discourage this
sort of thing.
There is an immediate need for
action. We suggest that a meet
ing be called of all holders of
shooting permits, to be held at
the Court House, Lihue, for the
purpose of organization.

The phenominally large ship
nients of sugar machinery recent
ly to the Philippines place this
product third in our list of ex
ports, being only exceeded by'su
gar and pines.
The fact that the sugar machiu
erv used in the orient comes main
Iv, if not exclusivelv, from Hawaii
is ii significant tribute to the in
telligeuce, enterprise and techni
cal skill of these Islands.
We really set the pace for the
world in sugar machinery, as well
as sugar manufacture, and this is
n position of leadership that we
inay well be proud of.

Editor Garden Island Of all
the people whom a sportsman ab
hors the GAMEHOG takes pre
cedence. This unsavory character
has made his appearance on Kauai
to the disgust of all true sports
men, and during the last two
vears his unlawful depredations
have made serious inroads on the
doves, particularly around Wai
lua and Anahola.
I have heard of men who have
individually shot a hundred and
eighty doves in one day. This is
enough to supply an honorable
hunter with over seven days of
hooting. Also I know of many
insfances of over fifty doves in one
Twenty-five birds is ample to
upply the largest family on
Kauai with a dove supper. Where
is the gain in turning sport into
slaughter, and in the bargain be
coming a law-breaker and spoil

What under the sun did they do
with the extra birds? Send them
to Honolulu and sell them, or
Long observation lias shown

to tiike the. other fellow's share
mil more, there will soon be little

over how long is the other fellow
flung to stand for it?
The majority of the shooters on
Kauai are sportsmen, 1 am glad
to say, and I know there is a
strong and growing sentiment
against the gameliog. and 1 am
glad of this, too. hoping that it
iiinv result in action.
The American Factors are per
forming a creditable work by
clearing-up and fencing their lot
in Kapaa Town. It is to be much
regretted that adjoining owners
do not adopt such commendable
work. Whv do not the citizens
of Kapaa take action against
those unsightly buildings in their
midst.' Their civic pride should
prompt them to act. .
Much interest is manifested iu
the forthcoming sale of Govern

notice is given in our advertising
Some of the Kapaa dignitaries
are hanging their heads low of
late; evidently the disapproval of
their recent actions by the public
is having it s effect.
in our young davs we were
taught "tis dogs delight to bark
and bite," but no American wants
to liken himself such animal. Pu
gilistic efforts to settle water dis
putes are not commendable and
America expects an example of
better behaving set to other races.
Fist encounterments is not a
manly way to settle arguments,
and the law of rule and order
should be our motto. This is the
second accasion, and the manners
and customs of the early day of

amongst the Kawaihau Home

lake some action in the matter?
The Sub Land Agent is very
