; Hears of Trouble" Between :
Sampan and Bait Owners
,The strik f the aku boat haa been
broken by aome of tbe Pacifle fiahing
ebmpany whose four boat win ge out
mornin; a BTOBI. Thta :
brought ont at a mectiag of the fish
enmmitte yesterday morninir. at whloh
representative of the fishing eompsnie
ana i tpij ot me sku boat were
present. . 1
, .Thft atrik wa a sympathetU on,
ano7 in caasr or it Tie fact that Kida,
the ma a present at the meet), was
unable to get any bait foe fishing. The
dbii asen or nau ia a small flah known
a tiehu. which ran tie nnl.f
close to ahore. With thia oehu th aku
i eaogbt. which in turn supplies the
bait for deep-sea fishing, A continued
tie-up of the aku boat would mean
that ho more deep-sea fish Would be
bronchi lt the Honolulu market. '
' Kida 1 captain , of ono of the ak'n
boat, of which there are seven. He
bs been twice arrested at tb tnatanee
of . Walter Macfarlane for trespassing
on hia ao-called flyhing rights, and has
been , forbidden to enter them at aay
time. , ... -J
The , Hontflnlu finhing company, for
which Kida works, could not supply
him with bait, and he was unable to se
cure' It 'elsewhere. There is none-for
ale in the open market, as each com;
pany has not enough to supply theis
owa raptsins at all times, according tp
their statement yesterday. - '. i
CaUi Strike ' ;t
, Upon finding himself unable to get
bait Kida- celled a strike of all the
ek it, boats. This Is the strike wblck
caused the session of tbe Ash commit,
tee in, the endeavor to find out tb
cause and to aafeguard the pnbli from
any shortage of fish in the markets..;
it waa charged by Charles 'Chilling
wprth k that : Kida , had threatened t
preveat. . Walter . Maefarlnne's aks
boat from operating unless he were
allowed to fish, for bait la Maefsrlane '
fishing rights. Macfarlane also stated
that af one time When he found Kida'l
boat trespassing and boarded it to put
tha captain under arrest one of the
erew attempVd to stab him. i
Richard lv suggested that aa
amicable arrangement could probably
be made between the fishing companies
aft ttf the supplying af bait for their
ftku boats so that none aeed be tied
up at the wharf. He said that it wa
(he duty, of the. fish committee to pro'
teet the public, and. that if it were-net
reesnry for the publie interest to take
legal action to prevent fish senrcity, it
would be dene without hesitation, i
' It 'seemed to be the desire-of . the
fishing companies to settls the cfuestion
In friendly maaaer at quickly as
possible. Their revenues are cut into
deeply when the lack of aku for bait
creates a scarcity of, deep-sea fish iu
he market.. They expressed their bet
lief that with the - breaking of the
strike, which haa already come to pass,
the matter would adjust iUelf at once.
The fact was . brought out at th
meeting that the number of aku boats
ba been kept down by the . fishing
eompaaiea on account ot their fear that
th finhin.7 grounds would he entirely
cleaned of nehu were there ft large!
number of boats in tbe aku trade. Vr.
Ivera stated that as long as this was
tbe ens arrangements ahould be made
between the companies by which the
beat could be supplied with bait so
that they would not ba kept from the
fishing grounds. ., A
When asked what would be done
sbout the uew aku boat aow ia course
of eonsrtaction, the fish committeemen
stated that the new boats were ao en
tirely different proposition, and if they
could not secure bait by arrangements
with th boat already ia the trad it
would not be the p!ue af the commit
tee to insist that they should be up
plied. The fish committee I only io,
te rested .in seeing that - aon of the
boats now engaged in aku fishiag are
laid off for long enough periods to cre
ate a serious shortage at the fishmarket
whereby th publia would- suffer."

; "I hav never seen or heard of a
.)untry more patriotic In its desira
to proserut the war until the Allies
hay boear erowaed with a decisive vic
tory thaa ' New , Zealand, and more
gaiety can be aeen In Honolulu In a
half hour than can ba aeen in any part
of New Zealand la three mouths."
Such i tha way Sydney rrancis Hol.en,
famous Australian pianist, who ia a
visitor in the city, speaks of the pa
triot ie spirit displayed by the people
of the southern. British dominion.
Mr. Hobea says that in their deter
mination to carry the war to a success
ful end, the people are doing all in
their power . to eeonomix that their
money may aid in the battles for de
mocracy. He say moat every one is
garbed ia somber dress, aad a touch
of color ia Indeed ft rarity.
Critic Ism rorbidden ,
V The people of New Zealand," he
anya, .. ' ' look upon , conscription as ab

ing it is aubjeat to Imprisonment. Dur
iag tha abort Jintw' I was there several
men srere arrested and charged with
treasonable utterances, .for having ex
pressed their displeasure at th adop
tion of the war measure. ,
"I was particularly impressed with
th aotieaable absence of automobiles
and upon inquiry, learaed that most of
theae later., day , vehicle had . been
stored ia garagea until the close of the
war, the people fully realizing the
shortage which exists in gasoline and
distillate, and objecting to- the higher
prices which Bfx-eaHarily re charged.
What,, few, machines are being used
are all -engaged in business pursuits.
Serious Work -.,-.
"The. atreeta are, crowded with sol
diers, all obviously,' in the service for
a serious work. The boys are no longer
bombastic in , their', enthusiasm, . but
their faces assume )k, graver appearaaae
which i caused hv the realisation that
there is a great , work head- which
must be), completed 'W a abort time. -
' ' Th sight ; of rippled i soldier is
not infrequent and many are returning
to New Zeals ad with every steamer.
However, they are all In jovial mood
and feel that thxdr blood ha not been
wasted ia . their effort to defeat the
foe of humanity. Theae men receive
the best of treatment and, as for-as
oosHible, 'their every . whim is satisfied
