of U70 for more of the slock, which was not found. Mr. Irwin lma Rtwn to
the plnntntlon his personal ntlontlon In gnnit menautv, and the iwsult
must be largely attributed to his skill and guidance.
Ahrt from this favorable feature of the mniket, the remainder of the
stocks have shown n little decline, due to lack of buyers. The most unusual
feature of the whole thing Is that Uwa has scored the most remarkable decline,
having been sold nt ?!0. Only 20 ahnres have lieen transferred nt this
llgure. but there Is more In the market, nnd buyers nte holding off this Btoelc
Just as they are from the others of the list. It Is the opinion of certain brokers
that the decline In llwu. Is the cause of the feeling that has forced down
the prices of other shares. There seems to be a desire to wait on Mie part
of all, nnd the result Is that the general list has declined. Thus there hove
been sales of Oahu nt $G.i, not on the board, and probably never to bo reported,
and there Is In the market now some Wnlalua which can be had for
J10, though there nre no buyers for the stock even nt that llgure. The reason
for this low quotation Is thnt the holder of a block of 400 shares of the stock
has decided that he will get rid of It here, and he will force the sale at
whatever price he may obtain.
Olna wr.s the moat active stock, in thnt the number of shares transferred
was the largest. Six hundred nnd thirty-one shares were sold of the
and 25 of paid up. The price was the ruling one of $4 for the former
and JS for the latter. There Is little of the stock In the market which has
the !uat assessment paid, but there is ei.nsiderablo which Is delinquent.
There will bo an auction sale of the shaios which are far back In the payments,
held next week, when It Is expected that the rales established by the
exchange transactions of this week will be the ones to rule.
Oahu Railway and Land Company hns taken nn Inexplicable drop, In
that the stock, earning ns it does C per cent, Is held below other shares of
the same lelallvo capacity. Thus there were sales of Oahu at $77.50, 3D
shares being sold, while in Hawaiian Klectric, which Is the same relative
earner, the stock Is strong nt about $S.r, there being none uf it loose in the
market Inter Island is ilrni on account of the dividend, and the feeling that
there will be some developments under the new management which will
result In Increased cnrnlngs for the company. The general market Is weak,
waiting for some developments from the sugar market, which It Is thought
nlono can send shares back to their former standing.
The bond Itsue of the Kohala Sugrr Company hns been underwritten for
the company by the Hank of Hawaii. The present issue Is only $150,000, nnd
the company holds In Its treasury the remainder of the authorized amount
of $300,000. The bonds will be used for the payment of the cost of the now
pumps Installed last year, iind In the event of the determination of the directors
to make further Improvements, the treasury holdings will be then sold.

The feature of the week In the real estate market has been the settlement
of the troubles of the Wulklkl Land and Lonn Association, by the purchase of
the holdings of the company by the ne.vly formed McCully Land Co., Ltd. At
the auction the transfer was made upon the bid of Of-car B. White of $60,000,
the amount of the Queen's Hospital Association mortgage. This was subject
to a prior lien, entered Into by the owners for the purpose of providing
lunds for the putting through of McCully street. This makes the price of
the land close to $72,000, for there must be added accrued Interest of $226.
The company will put on the market the lands as soon as possible, nnd arrangements:
have been made with Charles Oilman to net ns the sales malinger
for the estate. It Is understood that the lots nn the King street side
vlll be offered llrst, as they will not Involve much expense. As soon ns the
property begins to move there will bo pressed forward the Improvements to
the property, and the streets will be put through and the land lllled. The
lining of McCully street Is finished and the top dressing of rock Is being put
on. This, It Is thought, will be finished by Monday next, and then the laying
of tracks. It Is expected, will be rushed nlong.
C. H. Reynolds has purchased of F. L. Dortfh In the Mano.'i Heights addition
three lots, Just mauka of the residence of Mr. Townsend. It Is the Intention
of Reynolds to erect a residence very soon. It Is understood that It
will occupy the entire block. The property brought $4500.
Some rebuilding Is going on In Chinatown. Tho Schumnn block Is now
going up, and nrrnngements are being made for tho putting up of the Ah
Seu block at the corner of River street nnd Paunhl. This will be of the
same general form as the block which was destroyed. Theie are others who
Will complete plans for rebuilding within the next few weeks.

Volcano la Active.
The volcano was still smoking and
emitting flames when the Cluudlue left
Hllo, according to reports brought by
passengers Saturday. Though the
eruption was not visible In Hllo harbor
It was reported that there had been no
subsidence In the lake since last Wednesday
when It was first formed. Nothing
could be seen from the decks of the
Claudlne when she left tho coast of Hawaii
because of the heavy atmosphere.
Naval Transport Is Coming-.
The U. S. Naval Transport Solace Is
due to arrive In Honolulu from Manila
'about September 15th. The Solace has
been here many times before nnd now
the Navy Department has Issued orders
requiring her to stop at Honolulu
on eery voyngo both coming nnd
between Manila and San Francisco.
Navy Paymaster E. P. Hall will probably
take passage upon the Solace for
San Francisco upon her arrival here.
In the olden times the catching of the
Nluhl was made a royal sport, but there
has been no regular Nluhl fishery for
nearly one hundred years. A large
quantity of the livers of the common
shark would be obtained, and these,
with n little of the flesh, would bo
wrapped up In the leaves of the tl plant
and baked underground. At times, pig
meat would also be used. From fifty to
a hundred of the largest single nnd
double canoes would be loaded with the
baked ment and large quantities of the
pounded roots of the awn, mixed with
a little water and put In large gourds.
The licet would sail many miles out to
sea In the direction from which the
Nluhl was known to appear, and, arriving
ut n comparatively shallow
Jin 11 the baked liver and meat would
be thrown overboard, a few bundles at
a time, to uttrnct the sharks. After a
few days the grease and scent of tho
cooked meat would spread through the
water for many miles In every direction.
About the third or fourth day tho
Nluhl would appear. Then bundles of
the baked meat would be thrown out us
Inst as it could swallow them. After
a while the shark would get

or the other of the canoes to bo fed.
Bundles of the liver with the Hounded
uwa ivould then be given to It, nnd It
would soon become not only satisfied,
but also stupefied from the effects of
the awn. That would bo the end. A
noose being slipped over the shark's,
head, tho fleet would up anchor and set
sail for home, the shark following a
willing prisoner, being fed with more
of the meat and awa from time to time,
It would be led Into shallow water anil
there stranded and killed. Every purt
of Its bones and skin was supposed to
confer unlllnchlng bravery on the possessor,
while the actual captor, he who

Human flesh was also formerly used 1
as bait. The victim wns cut up and
left to decompose for two or three days
in a barrel or tub. In olden times the
use of this kind of halt wns In great
vogue wun me Kings and ciuers. it
was used because It was much cheaper
and more easily secured than pig or

think nothing of running the most desperate
clmnces'ln nttncklug. While the
native would not consider for a moment
the capture of his own especial
god. he has no compunctions about taking
some other man's.
The natives divide the sharks fre
quenting Hawaiian waters Into five spe
cies, ns follows: The
(man shark), Is the khark god of the
ancient Hawnllaus, the Mnno, a large
white shark, nnd the Nluhl, the largest
nnd fiercest of nil. Tho last two are
rarely seen in Hawaiian wnters. The
Nluhl Is said to be seen a long way off
nt night by tho bright greenish light of
Its eyeballs. It only Is much feared by
sharks nre captured In gill nets, seines
or bag nets with other fishes. The larger
species are taken usually with hook

generally made of a .piece of hardwood

of slnrp pointed bone lashed to the end

tihnrks with spears. Diving to 11 favorable
spot In nbout live or six fathoms
of water, the fisherman 'places h'mself
in a half-crouching posture against a
large coral rock and waits for the shark
to appear. When one comes ho darts
the spear Into a vital spot. If possible.

Frequently the natives seeks the
shaik In eaves and caves below the sur
face, after the llsh has gorged Itbelf
nnd sleeps with its head forced Into the
side.i of Its testing place. The diver
gently slips a noose about the tall and
the shark Is then hauled up and de
