Human Flesh Used by Hawaiian
CMpIm to (,'npluro Man rulers.
The I'orcst niul Sttcani, a maga
zine devoted lo adventure nnd
sports, prints llie following regard
ing the methods employed by tlie
early Hawaiian chiefs to catch
"It nppcars Hint the Hnwaiian
chiefs of some years ago were much
addicted to the use of human flesh
as bait for sharks. It came cheaper
than pig, wns equally acceptable to
the shark and gave the chief an op
portunity to kill any one whom he
disliked. The victim was cut up
and left to decompose for two nr
three days in a receptacle. Kamc
hamcha I was a great shark hunter,
nnd kept those of his victims who
were intended for bait penned up
near the grcnt temple of Mookini.
"Mrs. Heckley gives a partic
ularly interesting account of another
method of capturing the huge
niuhi, or man-eating shark, fol
lowed by the natives. They first
of all captured a large number of
the small common shark, saved
their livers with a portion of the
flesh, wrapped them in ki leaves
and baked them underground.
b'rom fifty to a hundred canoes
were loaded with the baked meat
and large quantities of the pounded
roots of awa, mixed with a little
water and contained in large
gourds. The fleet would sail many
miles out to sea in the direction in
which the niuhi is known to np
"Arrived at a comparatively
shallow place, the canoe containing
the head fisherman, and the priest
nnd the sorcerer, who wns supposed
to be indispensable, would cast an
chor; meat and the baked liver
would be thrown overboard, a few
bundles at a time, to attract sharks.
After a few days the grease and
gcent of cooked meats would spread
Ihrough the water many miles in
radius. The niuhi would almost
always make its appearance aftet
he third or fourth day, when
nindles of the baked meat were
hrown to it as fast as it could
.wallow them. After a while it
vould become comparatively tame,
Untl would come up to one or other
)f the canoes to be fed. Bundles of
he liver with the pounded awa
vould then be given it, and it
vould become not only satiated,
nit also stupefied with the awa.
"A noose was then slipped over
ts head, and the fleet raised anchor
nd set ail for home, the shark
ollowing, a willing prisoner, 'and
he occupants of the nearest canoes
)cing careful to feed it upon the
nine mixture trom time to time.
,t was led right into shallow water
ntil it was stranded, and then
illed. Kvery part of the bones
jnd skin was supposed to confer
jiiflinchiiig bravery upon the pos
sessor, and tue actual captor, that
i, the one wdio 1 slipped the noose
per the niuhi's head, would also,
(.vcr after, be always victorious."
line. Stepping over this was put
ting foot upon Mexican territory.
President Harrison ventured ns
far as this line ten years before,
nut President McKinlcy did not so
much ns place his loot upon the
bridge. President Arthur wns ac
cused of violating this unwritten
law in October, 1883, upon a pleas
ure trip lo Alexandria bay, Thous
and Islands. His political enemies
accused him of venturing across the
Canadian line on a fishing excur
sion. The boundary between Can
ada and New York extends to the
middle of the St Lawrence river.
President Cleveland was similarly
accused. On one of his limiting
trips to North Carolina he sailed by
the ocean route past Cape Hattctas.
His enemies contended that he ven
tured outside the three-mile limit.
According to international law, a
country'B possessions extend for
three miles outside its const line.
Plying the seas further than this is
leaving home territory.
The President must not accept
gifts of great value from inferiors
in the federal service, but he may
accept gifts from foreigners. Grant,
McKinlcy and Mr. Roosevelt have
received gifts from foreign rulers.
Several gifts have been sent to Mr.
Roosevelt from the west.
President Cannot Leave Country.
The President must not leave the
jfnited States even for a day. This
j an old unwritten law which hns
teen respected by all successors of
(Jeorge Washington, with perhaps
tfie or two exceptions. This re
friction is not imposed by statute,
president McKinlcy emphasized
ijis respect for this rule on his tour
t) the south and west. It was tin
officially announced tint he would
tjcet President Dia of Mexico,
somewhere near the boundary of
tint sister republic. A controversy
pS to whether Mr. McKinlcy might
properly cross the Mexican line
eyep for a few hours arose. Knrly
jp May, when he visited I$l Paso,
Tex., where he was greeted by
President Diaz's personal represen
tative, he expressed a desire to take
a look into Mexico.
Prom El Paso there extends into
Mexico the International bridge,
spanning the Rio Grande. Whe
ther the President would dare to
cross this structure or not was the
question which members of his
party asked one another. He did
not. He went to the bridge and
caught a view of the Sierra Mndre.
Halfway across the bridge was a
