Fish and Game Club
Holds Special Meeting
MANY IMPORTANT DECISIONS
ON LOCAL CONDITIONS
ARE MADE
The Knuni Fish and Gtuno Club
held nn important meeting at llio
homo of Dr. Kuhns last Thursday
evening. About 30 members of the
club wore present at the mcttiug,
which was preceded by a buffet
supper which was given by the
members' wives under the direction
of Mrs. Kuhns.
The principal object of the meet
ing was to hoar a report from II.
Ii. Kelly, executive officer for the
Hawaii Fish and Game Commission,
on the work that the commission Is
doing In ergard to the gamo situa
tion. Mr. Kelly gave a short resume of
the work that the commission is
doing in slocklrg the fields with
game birds and the streams with
gamp fish. Ho then slated that all
this work would be lost unless the
sportsmen of the islands would co
oporatu with the commission in pre
venting gamo hogs from extermin
ating the birds and fish. This co
operation Is to help the commis
sion in the way of suggestion for
laws to protect the gamo as well
as an Insistence that the law bo en
forced. After Mr. Kelly's talk, there was
considerable discussion on tho mat
ter of the trout that were planted
In tho streams at Kokee two years
ago. Mr. Kelly reported that the
fish woro making excellent progress
and the fish streams would be ready
for fishing next summer. Mr. Kelly
stated that the fish and gamo com
mission would like to have sug
gestions from tho sportsmen of Ka
uai in regard to rules governing the
fishing of trout In the Kauai streams.
The club then asked for some sug
gestions from Mr. Kelly and ho
stated that in his opinion the sea
son should not be open after July
15th owing to the fact the fish
spawned early that spring would be
big enough after that date to hook
themselves on a fly as it was on
these fish that the stocking of tho
streams the following year depend
ed, it was necessary to have the
season open early to protect them.
Ho suggested that the season should
not exceed six weeks ard that the
limit should bo ten fish a day and
25 a week.
The club then discussed Mr. Kelly's
suggestion at length and finally de
cided to have tho season open from
May 15th to Juno 15th, and that tho
limit be five fish a day regardless
of weight and the limit for a week
be fifteen.
The subject of the limit on phea
sant and doves was then taken up
and Mr. Kelly told of tho situatioi'
in the Williamelto Valley In Ore
gon whore pheasant at one lime
were so plentiful that the limit was
200 a day and tho season was opt u
three months. As tho birds began
to get scarcer tho limit was cut
down and row tho limit is two a
day and tho season is open two
weeks.
With this thought In mind tho
club voted to suggest to the com
mission that laws for Kauai bo
changed so as to make the phea
sant limit three a day and thirty
a season. The club also suggested
that thu dovo limit for Kauai be
reduced to 15 a day.
Mr. Kelly then told how II. I'.
Fayo had agreed to sot aside a por
tion of Kekaha as a gamo preserve
and that tho commission hoped, If
they could secure enough funds, to
start a game farm there. Tho club
voted to assist the commission in
every way possible In their efforts
to start tho game farm and elect
ed Mr. Fayo member of tho club for
cooperation In protecting and prop
agating game on Kauai.

THINGS ARE LOOKING UP
AT THE HOMESTEADS
With the price of sugar showing
slow but steady gains, optimism is
returning to those who were inclin
ed to be pessimists a few months'
ago. Interviews with the various
homesteaders, both of the Wailua
and Kapaa sections, indicate that
with the price of sugar averaging
above five cents for tho remainder
of tho year, many of them will
probably manage to break even,
which is doing very well, taking into
consideration the high, wages paid
in 1020 to plant the 1022 crop.

honor to the Hawaiian women who

worked under the guidance of their
Princess for the formation of auxili
ary clubs to tho republican party.
Princess Elizabeth Kahanu Kala
nlanaole continued her good work
during tho week and scored success
after success at the various pre
cincts. Old hands In politics watch
ed the organization with varied in
terest, and wero surprised at tho
aptness displayed by the women.
The Princess herself is an organ
izer of great ability, and she has
the happy laculty of getting results
out of chaos. A suggestion bore and
word at another place, and a club,
is formed and officers are elected. No
fitss, no squabbling, no sparring for
honors, no undercurrents to in any
way mar the proceedings. And when
she loaves any locality, the best
of fooling prevails, and a determin
ation to work as sho had advised is
promloiit in tho minds of all tho
women. The women have come for

and if the ideals preachec. ny their
