FRIDAY, JUNE -1, 1885.
RISE AND DECLINE OF THE NORTHERN
AND ARCTIC WHALE FISHERY.
This iiuHistry,whIch onco brought
so much wealth to theso Islands, is
now reduced to stimll proportions
compared to thu large fleet of ships
which in the flush times in the forties
nnd fifties mndc these Islands their
place of rendezvous for refitting,
shipping oil, etc. After the decline
of the sperm whale fishery, on what
w.i3 called the Japan ground, which
was at its bc9t during the twenties
nnd early thirties, it was then found
to be ircttinir unprofitable from tho
reduced catches, unci tho number of
vessels calling hero declined. But
at tho commencement of the next
decade, the forties, ships began to
visit the N. "W. coast of America
for Right Whales. This was known
among whalemen as the "Kodiac
Ground," covering all the region in
the vicinity of that island, and all
along the coast to the eastward,
down to CON. Latitude, whales were
abundant and much larger than
those in the Southern Ocean, and
the stories of those Jlrst visiting tho
ground seemed fabulous to those
accustomed to the comparatively
small fry of the Southern Ocean.
Tho business expanded rapidly.
Ships were transferred from tho
over-fished grounds south, and many
more bought and built and added.
In 1813 a largo ilect was on this
ground, and in '41 a still larger one,
and catches were large.
About this time some of tho old
sperm, whale captains were quite
surprised on arriving here to find
that the old time barter trade of
cotton cloth, tobacco, etc., had de
pal tod, never to return, and that
cash .vas wanted for supplies, etc.,
and that they were obliged to draw
bills of exchange on their owners,
the rate in those days ruling at 20
percent. Trior to this they had
usually got along in disbursing their
ships in tho Pacific with cotton
goods, muskets, powder, etc., and
rarely used money. It was also dis
covered that whales were plentiful
away to the west about this time,
and ships were soon cruising as far
us the Kurile Isles and Kamschatka.
The llect continued to expand,
and everything was booming. Some
thought from the great extent of the
new grounds that they would sup
ply an almost inexhaustible spoil
for tho whalemen. But the expan
sion of tho licet was too rapid, and
the cream was taken off these
grounds in a short time. Then it
was discovered that whales were
plentiful in the Sea of Okhotsk, and
directly after the Sea of Japan was
added to the list of cruising grounds.
It was also soon found that the
bowhead whale existed in the north
ern and western parts of Okhotsk
Sea. .And last but not least of the
discoveries in this decade, Doycc
sailed up into the Arctio and dis
covered that bowheads existed there
in great numbers and of immenso
size. This was in 1818. Next year
quite a number of ships -v isited tins
jicw ground, and were very suc
cessful. In 1850 a still larger fleet
and large catches were made. The
northern whaling was now in all its
For a huge part of this decade,
Lahaina, on the Island of Maui, had
been the principal port for refitting,
and was visitod by tho larger part of
the fleet during spring and fall,
touching at Honolulu for letters,
few comparatively coming in. But
as the fleet, which was still expand
ing in numbers, and 6till pushing
their way into the icy regions of tho
north, and remaining out later,
many of them battered by the ice
and storms of that inhospitable
region. Often requiring quite ex
tensive repairs, and as the facility
for repairs and transhipping of oil
were so much greater ut Honolulu
than in an open roadstead as at La
haina, that place quickly declined,
and Honolulu came into prominence
at a bound. As early as 1852, at
tho time of tho "Sailors' Riot," it
was estimated that the value of the
ships and cargoes moored in double
tiers, illling the harbor about full,
was fully 815,000,000.
It was during tills decade that tho
number of ships engaged in northern
whaling readied the highest point
nnd beean its decline. Its culmina
tion ns regarded catch was perhaps
in 1852, during which year tho
catches on all the northern grounds
wero extremely good and the aggre
gate catch immense. Tho decline
in tho number of vessels became
nuito ranid in tho latter part of this
and the early part of the next de
cade. Tho average catch having fallen
below a profitable point, nnd many
ships going homo with such small
catches as to entail heavy losses
upon the ownors, tho breaking out
of tho rebellion found many ships at
tho wharves at tho different whaling
ports, which it would be ruinous to
fit, and a largo number were sold at
low figures to tho government for
blocking up Charleston Harbor, and
for coal ships, coal hulks, etc.
Others were transferred into tho.
merchant service, some sent to San
Francisco nnd sold for lumber
This rapid reduction brought
about some good catches in tho
Arctio in 18G3, the number of ves
sels having dwindled down to less
than forty on that ground that year.
In 1805 tho rebel cruiser Shenan
doah reduced tho fleet again by tho
number eko burnt and destroyed,
The placo of theso was soon filled
by others that iiad been lying nt the
wharves idle, or withdrawn from
other grounds, now practically ex
hausted. Tho Arctic whaling, now
tho only ground of note, was still
followed up witli a diminished fleet,
a part of which mado San Francisco
their port for 1 cutting.
In 1871 occurred tho abandon
ment and loss of 80 "vessels sur
rounded by ice. This blow was a
severe one. It used up the Insur
ance olllccs in Now Bedford in pay
ing the losses of that disasttous
year. More additions to the fleet
were made. Three years later wit
nessed the lo33 of a small fleet
again, and almost every year some
old veteran of tho fleet found her
frame of good old oak too weak to
stand the crushing power of the
Arctic ice, nnd went down like
another Cumberland with all her
The beginning of this decade
found Honolulu entirely bereft of
the full fleet, the whole number,
about forty, making their rendez
vous for refitting and shipping their
catches at San Francisco, a portion
of them touching here after a short
winter cruise to receive captains and
officers, many of whom now remain
at homo during the between season
nnd joining their ships here for tho
Steam has also come in this de
cade. But whether it has been more
profltablo to fit steamers than to put
tho same amount of capital into
sailing vessels is a matter perhaps
not fully decided. Steamers aro in
less danger of being crushed by the
ice, owing to their motive power:
still two noble steamers have been
crushed by the ice already.
Another change in regard to the
ownership of tho vessels engaged in
this business has occurred largely
during this decade. Formerly all
the licet belonged at eastern ports,
but San Francisco now takes the
lead, having 21 vessels, of which 7
aro steamers, while Now Bedford
has but 19, only two of which aie
steamers. How long a time n fleet
of even forty vessels can success
fully prosecute this northern whal
ing, time only can determine.
