The Oldest Inhabitant Dies.
On Saturday last at Waiakea, on the Reed's Bay road, an aged Ha
waiian women died, whom it is said was 104 years of age. She claims
to have been, when a young girl, one of the ladies in waiting to the
Queen of Kamehameha the Great. She was known as Paakttku and
was the last of her race, neither children nor any member of her im
mediate family surviving her. She always lived an active life, and al
though emaciated and gray, she never wore glasses and possessed all
her teeth intact. A few days before her death, she declared she was
tired of life and refused to take nourishment. She was well known in
Honolulu by Queen Liliokalnui and members of the Royal family and
had an intimate knowledge of the early history of the Islands. There is
little doubt as to her being a centenarian.
Wanton Destruction of Food Fishes.
Considerable interest is being taken by fish lovers and others who
are interested in the preservation of the food fishes in the Hawaiian waters
in the Senate Bill 90, introduced by Senator Kalama, making it a penal
ly to use a net, seine or trap having a mesh or opening smaller than two
inches stretched or one inch square. A penalty is provided for having
small fish in possession, but an exception is made in a variety of small
fish much used by the natives. The Hawaiiuns have frequently resorted
to giant powder, sometimes disastrously to themselves, but always to the
fish in the water within an area of fifty feet. The concussion of the water
crushes the life out of all animal life, young and old. After an explosion
of giant powder under water the surface is strewn with hundreds of the
finny tribe, crabs, mollusks, etc. The Japanese fisherman are now imi
tating the natives, it is said, with the appalling prospect of all finer varie
ties of food fishes being destroyed.
J. M. Hering, Fish and Food Inspector under the Board of Health,
has been taking an active interest in the matter for the purpose of pro
tecting the food fish supply. He says: "The food fishes of Hawaii are
rapidly being destroyed by ignorant natives and Japanese, who do not
look to the future in their destruction of the young of our island fishes.
I have caught several fishermen with very small mesh nets and it is not
infrequent to find persons using mosquito netting. Besides catching
larger sized fish, young mullet and other fish are captured before they
are fully matured, with the result that the choicest fish to be found iu
island waters are rapidly dying off or being caught. The natives also
use a mixture or combination of herbs known as auhuliu, or akia, a ball
of which, when deposited at the bottom of a pond frequented by fish,
acts in the nature of chloroform, putting the fish to sleep. When the
fish rise to the surface the natives gather them up, and they arc sold or
eaten like other fish. There docs not appear to be any harmful effects
from the use of this drug after the fish arc cooked, for the Hawaiians
eat fish killed in this manner with impunity. But the action of the drug
is the same on all fish within the radius of its influence, and the young
suffer death as well as the larger fish. The present law provides a pen
alty for fishing with dynamite, but does not cover this method of de
stroying the fish. The law should include this method of destruction
and also provide a penalty for persons having fish iu their possession
smaller than is permissible under the law, when not used for aquariums
or breeding purposes. Too often these small fish are thrown away on
the beach, fed to cats, dogs and other animals."
Inspector Hering has kept an accurate count of all fish caught in Hilo
bay and adjacent waters. Since, July, 190.1, the number ot fish con
sumed has more than doubled, ami in some mouths quadrupled. In
August, 1904, the total number of fish caught was 276,828, whereas in
August, 1903, there were only 62,686 recorded. The same proportion
was maintained iu September.
The number of fish caught in October, 1904, was 178,536; in Novem
ber, 107,728, and iu December, u8,6S6. For the past three months the
average catch has been growing less, and Mr. Hering prophecies that
very shortly one of Hawaii's best food supplies will be wiped out, unless
a protective measure is enacted for its preservation, such as is pro
vided by Senator Kaluma's bill.
