Hawaiian Authority Says" That" If
Fry and Spawning Fish Are
Protected There Will Be Quick
Increase of Supply of Edible
Fish' In Island Waters -
Boeaestions for tha (ntorovement of
the fish situatioa in the Territory have
been offered by Mrs. 'rJmina Nakuina,
who 1 one of the pest living authori
ties pn Hawaiian hiatorv sad eustoma,
and who take a lively interest in the
fish question at it stand today. Mrs.
Nakuina is" the owner of fishing rightoi
ok the eonat'of one of the other inlands.
A federal fish hatchery would not be
necessary bore jf proper , protective
measure were taken for the email fry
and the fish with roe, says Mrs. Na
kuina.. It is owing tQ the fact tht
any one who' wishes has been allowed
to go along the shore and scoop oat the
fry by netfuls, and also to watch and
net the adult fish in the spawning sen
eon, that there is .at present a scarcity
of fish in Hawaiian water. ;
' aire. Nakuina state her readiness to
surrender the fisheries of Honomuni
nd Hana; which she holds, pn payment
of their valuation,, but hay that she
tropes the day when that will be .done
will be far off, a i ber opinio tbf
throwing open' of all fisbing right to
the public would mean the speedy ex
tinction of aH edible fish.- . , '
The . appointment of a federal fish
commissioner, with power to apoint
fish inspectors for every district of the
island . beaebesj i said ' by Mrs, Na
kuina to be one, of the necessary stopn
to the preservation of 'the Hawaiian
fishes, especially f the present private
fishing right art abolished. Hi duty
should be to conserve the fishe pf the
Territory and to promulgate nnd en
force rules for the protection aud prr
servatioo of the young fish. .,
If the private "fishing rights are abol
ished, and no official U appointed who
could . protiulKite " protective, regula
tion and punish all infractors therepf,
Mr. Nakuina' says that fish will be
come, scarce and, higher in price until
tbey are no' longer obtaJnlle, The
present conditions . are , deplprnble io
their lark of protection for you ag fry
and fiah in spawning time, in the opin
ion oi. Mr a, Nakuina, and. tb appoint
ment of a fish' eommissioner capable of
giving them adequate protection would
be advisable whether the fiehin rights
re maintained or not. . ..The chief use
to which ber fisbing rights have bepn
put' baa been to protect the' fr)r and
fish vrith roe from pot fiahrr who are
on ike watch for quick eatebes, regard

Rare Specimen Oldest Residents
. About rijiht o'clock Wednesday I
morning, November 21, a Chinaman
named Aaeu caught a very extraordin
ary flak specimen in a net off Kihel.
He has the creature in a tank and
hopes to be able to preserve it alive;
says the Maui News.
The body of the specimen is about
eight inches in length, six inches wide
and two inches thick, and the meat i
soft somewhat like that of a jelly fish.
Tha predominating color is pale red,
bordering on pink, and it is very pret
ty. On the lower aide the color is
about the same, except that here sr
white spots.
All aropnd the nh are delicate fins,
resembling those of a gold fish. When
swimming these spread out, and when
the fiah is at rest they fold up' close
to the body.. ; .
Native fishermen from far nd near
have flocked to the Aseu place to in
spect the strange creature. The very
ojdest of tbem declare that they never
saw or heard of anything of the kind
being found on Maui before.

NEW YORK, November 26-7(As8ociated Tress) ;In two sec
tors of the Western Front' and in the Italian war theater the
results of yesterday's fighting were, distinctly favorable' to the
Allies. The encircling movement of the 'British at Cambrat pro-;
gressed" well,' the French" launched a strong arid "successful offensive
which took two lines of German trenches and the' Italians not only
held back the Austr6-Hungarians successfully but by counters and
offensive tactics succeeded in inflictjng Serious damage' to the en
emy plans.. Another encouraging' feature of the day's' fighting
in that theater was the fact that there are signs pf a'subsidence in
the violence. of the attacks, which were hurled, Against the Latin
positions. -'. V: ' V " ' ' " ' " -'. .' ' ;
; . 0 POSITIONS1 RETAKpN r . ; !
In' the Cambrai sector the1 heaviest figfiting again occurred in
the vicinity .of Bpurlon and Jthe Bourlon Wdods. ' On,Saturday the
British forces took the woods, were later dislodged, returned and
secured advantagous positions on higher ground: From those posi
tions they yesterday launched fresh attacks, having been reinforced
during the night. Bourlon was taken and held and a part of the
woods was recaptured. '. ' ! "''. 't ," ,
. . . FRENCH ARE VICTORS !: ! ' ' '
French 'forces in the Verdun ' sector ihflicted a-heavy blow
against the Huns yesterday. Early in the morning an infantry attack
was made upon" a new salient of the enemy front and for several
hours the battling proceeded with vigor, the French verve and spirit
carrying them forward and well ' into the. enemies' lines. The first
cttack took the first line of enemy trenches after hand to hand en
gagements. ; German reinforcements undertook to recapture these
positions but were driven back and following in the wake of their re
ireat the French; advanced into and took the Germans' second line of
defenses. In the course of these engagements eight hundred prison
ers were taken. All Teuton counters in efforts to retake the lost
ground were successfully met. ' '
; .. , isv ON, ITALIAN FRONT
Following a heavy barrage the Austro-Germans launched strong
attacks against the Italians' in the sector which lies between the
Piave and the Brenta Rivers where'for days past they have tainly
tried to make the breach that would open up the road through the
Venetian plains and to Venice.. These attacks were repulsed with
a repetition of the heavy losses which have been daily inflicted on
i.hc enemy in the Vain assaults which have been made. Yesterday
it was noticeable that there was something lacking in the enemies'
attack and the fighting was notjof the whirlwind character that has
pieviously marked it as the most desperate engagement in which the
Italian soldiers have yet been called to participate.
In this sector both side are" busy reorganizing their forces after
a protracted engagement in which each day's fighting had seemed
more severe and straining than thevlast. .
Decisive reverses were administered to the Huns on the banks
ofthe Piave and on the As'ago Sector. Attempts were made to cross
P' - he Piave at new points with the
I. . ..
tempts were completely frustrated and the Austro-Hungarian ad
vanced forces were annihilated.
In the Asiago sector the Huns
morning but were beaten back and the Italians then followed up
their advantage with a countef which put the enemy to rout.
Signs were noted along the whole of the Italian front that there
was a weakening in the offense of the enemy and it'was evident that
