CARTER, Governor of the Territory of Hawaii. The Oldest Inhabitant Dies. On Saturday last at Waiakea, on the Reed's Bay road, an aged Ha waiian women died, whom it is said was 104 years of age. She claims to have been, when a young girl, one of the ladies in waiting to the Queen of Kamehameha the Great. She was known as Paakttku and was the last of her race, neither children nor any member of her im mediate family surviving her. She always lived an active life, and al though emaciated and gray, she never wore glasses and possessed all her teeth intact. A few days before her death, she declared she was tired of life and refused to take nourishment. She was well known in Honolulu by Queen Liliokalnui and members of the Royal family and had an intimate knowledge of the early history of the Islands. There is little doubt as to her being a centenarian. Wanton Destruction of Food Fishes. Considerable interest is being taken by fish lovers and others who are interested in the preservation of the food fishes in the Hawaiian waters in the Senate Bill 90, introduced by Senator Kalama, making it a penal ly to use a net, seine or trap having a mesh or opening smaller than two inches stretched or one inch square. A penalty is provided for having small fish in possession, but an exception is made in a variety of small fish much used by the natives. The Hawaiiuns have frequently resorted to giant powder, sometimes disastrously to themselves, but always to the fish in the water within an area of fifty feet. The concussion of the water crushes the life out of all animal life, young and old. After an explosion of giant powder under water the surface is strewn with hundreds of the finny tribe, crabs, mollusks, etc. The Japanese fisherman are now imi tating the natives, it is said, with the appalling prospect of all finer varie ties of food fishes being destroyed. J. M. Hering, Fish and Food Inspector under the Board of Health, has been taking an active interest in the matter for the purpose of pro tecting the food fish supply. He says: "The food fishes of Hawaii are rapidly being destroyed by ignorant natives and Japanese, who do not look to the future in their destruction of the young of our island fishes. I have caught several fishermen with very small mesh nets and it is not infrequent to find persons using mosquito netting. Besides catching larger sized fish, young mullet and other fish are captured before they are fully matured, with the result that the choicest fish to be found iu island waters are rapidly dying off or being caught. The natives also use a mixture or combination of herbs known as auhuliu, or akia, a ball of which, when deposited at the bottom of a pond frequented by fish, acts in the nature of chloroform, putting the fish to sleep. When the fish rise to the surface the natives gather them up, and they arc sold or eaten like other fish. There docs not appear to be any harmful effects from the use of this drug after the fish arc cooked, for the Hawaiians eat fish killed in this manner with impunity. But the action of the drug is the same on all fish within the radius of its influence, and the young suffer death as well as the larger fish. The present law provides a pen alty for fishing with dynamite, but does not cover this method of de stroying the fish. The law should include this method of destruction and also provide a penalty for persons having fish iu their possession smaller than is permissible under the law, when not used for aquariums or breeding purposes. Too often these small fish are thrown away on the beach, fed to cats, dogs and other animals." Inspector Hering has kept an accurate count of all fish caught in Hilo bay and adjacent waters. Since, July, 190.1, the number ot fish con sumed has more than doubled, ami in some mouths quadrupled. In August, 1904, the total number of fish caught was 276,828, whereas in August, 1903, there were only 62,686 recorded. The same proportion was maintained iu September. The number of fish caught in October, 1904, was 178,536; in Novem ber, 107,728, and iu December, u8,6S6. For the past three months the average catch has been growing less, and Mr. Hering prophecies that very shortly one of Hawaii's best food supplies will be wiped out, unless a protective measure is enacted for its preservation, such as is pro vided by Senator Kaluma's bill. :Tffgtt-TwTn'"""
