THE PULU TRADE.
I'ulu is not nn important article
of commerce. Most of that con
sumed in the United States comes
from the Hawaiian Islands and is
imported by way of San Francisco.
It is a sort of vegetable silk, obtain
ed from a species of fern. Hawaiian
Pulti is grown on lands elevated
1,000 to 1,000 feet above tho level
of the sea, and is principally con
fined to the districts of Ililo, Hama
kua and Puna on the island of
Hawaii. The plant frequentty reaches
the height of 15 feet, and when four
years old produces from 2 to -1
ounces of fibre. It is gathered by
women aud children and laid on
rocks and mats to dry, when it is
packed in bales as Wool for expor
tation. It is of dark brown color,
and when on tho stalks resembles
the covering of animals. From this
circumstance, it is supposed the an
cient fablu of the Scythian or vege
table lamb originated. It is only with
in 30 or !3j years that it became an
article of export from Honolulu. In
1831, the record shows only 2,500
lbs exported from that port, while
in 1858 the total was 313,200 lbs.
The shipments of the crop have
been divided between California,
British Columbia and Australia,
San Francisco taking the bulk of
the yield. Tho article was first
introduced here in 1851 and sold nt
28c per lb. Its principal use has
been in upholstery. Pulu pillows
and bolsters were more common
hero twenty 3'cars ago than now.
Of late years the quantity of Pulu
received here has been very small,
and for the past year or two imports
appear to have been discontinued.
When woven, the article produces a
fabric intermediate in character be
tween Silk and Wool.
The imports of Pulu at San Fran
cisco from 1802 to 1882 were as
1S73, bales.. ;.2,S73
For a number of years, as will be
seen, these imports have been fall
ing off, and for the past two years
they appear to have ceased alto
gether, or tho quantity has become
too small to be considered worth re
cording. Whether the Hawaiian
crop has fallen off in the ratio indi
cated by tho imports here, or whe
ther the difference is due to a greater
home consumption on the islands of
late years, arc questions that cannot
be correctly answered with tho in
formation at hand. It is known,
however, that the exports from the
Hawaiian Islands in the past few
years have been quite light. Per
haps tho objection raised against its
use here may have led to a reduction
in the imports. It is apt to sift
through the covering, is not as lively
as some other upholstering material,
and some people imagine its use in
bolsters causes headache. These
reasons, however, arc probably not
the only ones for a cessation of im
ports. The large decline in price
has probably discouraged its pro
duction nnd preparation for the
market to a considerable extent.
