John F. Colburn ha8 received
the following letter from Captain
Mosor of the United Stntes Fish
Commission's steoinor AlbatrosB.
It will bo remembered that Mr.
Colburn ontortamed the Captain,
officers and scientific nttaohes of
tho ship by a railway excursion to
his, Pearl Harbor residonco and a
luau at that place, tcgothor with a
samplo treat of his oysters, on the
18th of last November. The lettor
of Captain Mosor explains itsolf :
U. S. Commission of Fish and
Fisheries, Steamer Albatross,
Sau Diego, California, lGth
Hon. John F. Colburn, Honolulu,
My dear Mr. Colburn: In my
report to the U. S. Commissioner
of Fish and Fisheries on the
opemtioiib of this vessel for tho
Hix months ouding December 31,
18, I Haiil on the subject of
"Oyster Culturo in Hawuii," tho
''Tliiit tlie oystor wnB a native
of theso waters 'iud occurred in
great numbers is eidonc6d by
tho numerous oyster banks found
iu different localities now raised
abovo tho sea lovol and having an
earthy covering. When visiting
tho fish ponds on tho Pearl Lochs
1 examined tho ancient oyster
banks on the eastern side of tho
Middle Loch on the neck which
joins Wnipu with tho mainland.
The Bhorohne here consists of a
vertical bluff from 10 to 15 feet
high with a strata of oyster shells
0 to 8 feet thick. This strata is
oxposed on the loch faco for fully
half n milo aud can bo traced for
a long distance across the ponin
sula. I procured a numbor of
specimens which havo boon for
warded from which it may bo
seen that they closoly resemble
our own eastoru oyster. Theso
aro not shell heaps liko those on
our southern coast aud iu other
localities, but aro eutiro, in situ,
as both volvo4 aro usually
iu place and can bo readily re
moved. Thoy do not scorn to oc
cur in masses or clusters, but aro
largo single oysters iu size ro
sembling tho bettor varieties of
marketable Chesnpoako Day
oysters. It is possible that theso
oyster bnuks wore formed luyer
by lnyor, tho upper ones smother
ing tho lower until through somo
natural eauso tho bedB wore cov
ered with mud and nfterwards
lifted abovo tho sea level. On
this little, peninsula in two differ
ent places I examined the remains
of largo numbers of pearl oystors
which soom to havo occurred in
pockets amongst tho othor oysters.
Tho sholls wore all so friable that
no good specimens could be pro
cured, but from tho mass
of debris I was ablo to get
sufliciont evidenco that thoy wore
pearl oyster shells. I was also
told that at tho present day a fow.
poarl oysters aro found off lleck
"Upon invitation of Hon. John
F. Colburn, I visited his fish nud
oystor pond on Poarl Lochs. The
pond Loko Paauau on tho chart
is his property and I think ho is
tho only porson who is making
any effort in oyster culturo on
theso islands. In reply to an in
quiry requesting information re
lating to his efforts in oystor
culture in Hawaii I quoto as
(Hero I inserted a verbatim
copy of your lettor to mo under
dato of Nov. 19, 1890.)
"From, the foregoing letter it
will bo aeon that oyster culture in
Hawaii is of vory modem dato
and from my own observation in
an experimental stage I think
thero is no doubt that the waters
aro suitable for oystor culturo:
tho ancient beds and tho expo
notice of Mr. Colburn attest it,
but' experiment will alono dis
cover tho proper conditions for
n commercial enterprise.
"I wont over the oystor beds
with Mr. Colburn nud wo took
from the water both transplanted
oystors and thoso that had been
propagated iu tho pond, specimens
of which havo been forwarded.
When takon from tho water thoy
have a brownish apponranco
which upon inspection proves to
be a mossy growth on tho shell.
They aro largo, well rounded, and
wheu opened beautiful in np
pearanco and of good ilaor. It
is difficult to judgo the llavor of
an oyster when one is not in a
real oystor country. In Sau
Francisco ono roli&hes tho eastern
transplanted, when in Norfolk or
Washington these same oysters
would bo considered rather
"To my tasto Mr. Colburn's
oystors had a slight flavor of tho
moss or grass and they soonied to
havo too much fresh wator, simi
lar to some found along tho coast
of North Carolina and olsewhoro,
though the specific gravity,
1.01G988, toinperaturo 78 Fahr.,
does not indicate too much frh
"Theso oysters aro planted in a
fish pond stocked with mullet.
The bottom is soft and I boliove
covered with grass. The gratings
for tidal access aro vory small.
Mr. Colburn deserves much
praiso for the manner in which
he has conducted this work, but
it is my opinion that ho has not
selected tho best ground in tho
locality for oystor culturo. Tho
fish in tho pond must necessarily
dostroy tho spat; over a soft or
grassy bottom with few spat col
lectors, tho spat havo nothing to
fasten to, and in confined areas of
wator tho struggle for existonco
must be vory great.
"Off tho bluffs before alluded to
where the ancient oystor beds are
located tho water shoals graduolly
and tho bottom appears to be not
vory soft, and so far as I could
see clear of grass. Proper ex
ploration would probably dis
cover othor grounds open to tho
full tido and well adapted to
oyster culturo. If then a favo
rable selection of ground were
mado and properly prepared with
plenty of material for spat col
lection, enclosed by suitable fonc
iug and tho proper plants made,
I believe thut tho oyster would bo
successfully and profitably pro
pagated in thoso waters.
"Experiment alono would deter
mine tho untural enemies to bo
guarded against. Plants from the
Gulf of California, whore tho con
dilioiis aro somewhat similar to
those of Hawaii, I believe would
be more suitable than enstarun."
I beg to ouolose herewith a copy
of each photograph takcu upon
tho occasion wheu yon entertained
us so handsomely at n luau aud
trust' it may servo as a pleasant
remembrance of tho day. My on
ly hope is that some day 1 may
revisit dear old Hawaii whoro tho
generous hospitality of my friends
has made mo fool 'as though I
woro at homo.
With Aloha Nui to you all,
Very truly yours,

when ho dropped into tho Anchor

Because you can always get a

gentlemanly attendants, and if
you happen to drop in during

with solids ns well ns liquids. In
fact the lunch at tho Anchor is
said by many to bo tho best in
