War Oomea At Last
L" Dear Abe Fiji has at last come ia
to the War Zone; we have had the
most exciting , episode south of , the
line siaee the war commenced, and the
(acta -are aa follows:
- "On Friday, the twenty-first of last
Month, 'word , was received at Levuka
from a Scotchman named MePhersoa,
who is an overseer oa aa island called
Wakaye, which fa about one and a
half miles from Levuka, that aa armed
motor boat had arrived oa the island.
Jie got away ia a cutter to Levuka,
sod reported the matter to the author
ities, who first would not believe him,
but later oa he waa able to convince
them, and they seat out the Amra, the
. inter-iaiular passenger and cargo steam

they saw the boat: Hills with - the
native police proceeded ashore in a
rowing boat to where the launch was,
. and .oa arrival called oa the occupants
' to surrender, which - they , immediately
did, being under the impressioa that
there was a covering party on the
Amra. The prisoners were fully arm
ed, having one of the latest types of
maehiae guns fixed ia the bow of the

War's Alarums
. v ' Th arraoiring of the guards and
patrols and reliefs kept me going all
the. time.-but it was all very exciting
as 'the different reports came in, some
true and some real hair raisers. As
mo"t of ths natives suffer greatly from
Iroacinitis, the humorous side was great
ly io the front, especially where the
native and balf caste section were, but
to1 appreciate them fully one. has to
know them. -
- "One little incident is now known as
the battle of 'What For', ftevestesa
half cssles and two white son -corns
were, the heroes of the eiisode. Tbev
wvrs'at a place called Tamavua, (
and one-half miles from fuva). A re
port came in that there was an iron
shanty fa the bush there thsi was not
occupied in the day time but was' at
niftM, so this lot were sent out to in
vestigate. ; . " '.-
Battle For the Shack
"After taking five hours to get round
the shanty, the sergeant called for the
occupants to some out and surrender.
After, doing so three times and receiv
ing no reply, he ordered his mea to fire,
which, of course, they did. and then
the door wee opened very gingerly and
out came three Chinamen who were so
frightened that they rv'J fell la a heap
and nothing would make them get up.
Just at, this time up came the adjutant,
who waa grabbed by one of the half
castes, who roared at him, 'Seventeen
hots, three flnming chows, come
and have a look mister)'
. "They were as proud of It as if tbev
had captured a whole German army,
sad if. possible, la the morning they
were more so, when -they saw that only
oae maa had missed the shantv. It ia
simply wonderful bow the Chinamen
escaped being shot.
Telephone Wires Out
"Th telephone wires were cut in
several places, ia a most ingenious way,
one liae at each post so tost only an
expert could detect it, as an ordinary
person looking at the lines would see
the wires from post to post, aad would
not suspect anything the matter. --
"Foot. prints were found at different
plsces, and sufficient evidence came to
light to prove that there were Germans
at. large,- but ' up to the present . we
nave Deen unable to capture them.
."The Amra has just returned from
a trip around the group, but has not
seea anything. She waa armed,, and
had seventy mea oa board.
Japanese 6a Guard , . . .
"There are at present two Japan ess
battleships in the harbor, and I under
stand that they are -going to make a
thorough search throughout the whole
group. ; ir-:
.."The prisoners were takea away wits
a special escort, consisting of sixteen
men aad aa officer to New Zealand, by
the 8. 9.' Taluae. The Count,, at aa
enquiry that was held, owned to hav
ing aunk thirteen ships, but prided
himself on the fact that he had neither
taken a life or lost a life. He was ia
the Jutland fightr also the Hellgolsnd
fight and waa second ia eommnnd of
the 'MoeweV He has aixteea decora- i
tiona, laeludinf the .iron cross, and the
British Roysl Humane Hnciety 'a Medal.
He is gnd fstber to the Crown Prince's
youngest child, so you will see that he
is a great capture. He refused to say on
what island he had put the crews of
the ships that he had .aunk, but said
that they had plenty to eat and drink.
Peace Footing Again . .
" Although the forces are demobilised
now, they are likely to be called out
at a minute's aotiee. The difficulty
here is that there are such a lot of
Germane at Urge, aad it has beea prov
ed that they were trying to assist the
captured ones, so I believe that the
authorities , are at last going to intern
the lot. Up te the present only those
of ' whom thev were suspicious were
sent away to Australia for internment.
"A Joke that they have up against
one of the sentries is that he challeng
ed a passer by ae follows:. ' 'Who goes

Fire On Schooner ' Quelled After
Captain and Mate Held .
Men To Tasks
. 'r . , ; T v : '
The schooner I,ttie Honnett, Vhlth
srrlved 1 Han Frnnrinro recently from
Apia with copra, was oa Ore at sea and
was saved only ty strenuous actios on
the part of captain and mate against
a mutinous crew, ,'
While ia south latitudes, the mate
went into the latarette with a lighted
eaodle to get out some cabin stores.
There was gasoline and oakum in the
lasarette and fumea from the gnsolins
caught fire. ""
The mate managed' to climb p
through the hatchway and then he and
the crew began to fight the fire. In
order to get at the Are, they had to
hack holes through the after part of the
poop. . 'Through these they . poured
streams of water from hoses connected
with (he donkey engine pump forward.
For several hours they fought the
fire, but it gained headway, f inally
the crew mutinied and said'- they
would abandon the ship in the boats
and make for - the nearest island.
Captain Holmes would not nllow this.
He said that there was a chance to
save the vessel and he and his mate
quelled the mutiny and finally got the
men to workiag again.
After five hours they finally put the
fire out, but the entire after cabin was
gutted and, although the cargo was lit'
tie damaged, it wilt cost approximate
ly 15,000 to Ox the vfssel up again. 4
The few Austrian and German sail
ors who . have made Honolulu head
quarters for the last few years are find
ing it increasingly more difficult to sc
cept employment on Island and deep
water vessels which frequently put into
the various ports, Bailors of Austriaa
and German extraction who have not
been naturalised now have to obtain a
Presidential permit to travel to the oth
er islands as well as before signing at-,
tides on vessels plying between here
and Coast ports.
' Although no nr.utal shortage in sea
faring men exists, there is no surplus
on hnnd nccording to a well-knows
waterfront maa who made a canvass of
the sailors' anion and other -retreats
yesterday afternoon. Several mea. who
are now classed as nliea enemies were
glvea permits to travel yesterday and
they departed Immediately for Maui
where they will sign oa a schooner now
discharging there. It was explained that
it is believed the number of men who
leave the ships here, caa just about be
replaced by the few available men now
here, while those who remain wilt off
set those who leave vessels arriving ia
future, as sailora seldom care to remain
ia port longer than a few weeks, about
the length of time which will 'elapse
between nrrivala when the vessels of
the Alaska fleet establish a regular Isl

Message'Says Stats of War Now
Exists Between United States
' -and AustriaHungary . r
V Sutiiecie of Anstrin-Honirarr arriv
ing at this port,' whether passengers or
seamen, are- to be taken into custody
as alien enemies by Richard Halsey,
local inspeetor-ia-rhief of the United
mat as immigration bureau. Cabled i
structions tf this effect were received
by Mr. Halsey yesterday and wifl be
put into effect immediately- , .
Mr. Halsey ' instructions were very
brief, merely confirmatory of the state
of war now existing between the two
countries, and were undoubtedly scut
to give him power to act Immediately
ia case a steamer arrived here yester
day with persons of this designation
aboard.. ,
Few Now Here . .
Mr. Halsey expects to receive de
tailed instructions today or tomorrow
covering the war conditions which will
now make subjects of Austria-Hungary
amenablo to war . regulat ions equally
with those of Oermanv. There are few
persons in the Territory of- Austrian
birth who may be considered as alien
enemies, but in view of the trans-Pacific
passenger traffic which makes Ho
nolulu a jiort of call, it is possible that
some Auntriana may be aboard vessels
now en route across the Pacific. -;
Austrians there will be required to
register- at the United States clerk's
office .with respect to their goings apd
comings., ia the city, and particularly
with reference to - the distance they
must reffaia ; from . the fortification
areas. '.- .' ...
Other Instruction! Expected - .
Neither United States Attorney 8. C.
Huber or United States Marshal J. J.
Smlddy - has ' as yet received instruc
tions from Washington as to the re
strictions to- be placed upon subjects of
Austria, but in view 'of the fact that
instructions. have been received by the
Immigration inspector, it is expected
that they will be advised, probably to
day, as to what action they shall fkke
with, respect to Austrians.
It is expected that the instructions
they will receive will be similar to
those which; they were called upon to
put-into effect several months ago in
the case of German aliea enemies, when
the United i States first went to war
with Germany, Austrian alien enemies
will undoubtedly be required to. sur
render all fire arms In their possession,
to register .their names and addresses
and, unless special dispensation is
granted, .not to reside or do business
within restricted districts.
In other words, the United States is
now formally at war with Austria-Hun
gary -and it. behooves subjects of that
nation to 4 walk carefully and 'keep
their mouths abut." .
Doctor Cooper Denies Assertions
Ten Percent Affected With
Dread White Plague y
"Doctor Sinclair is Incorrect 1n his
statement concerning the health of the
men in the national guard, and certain
ly his figures are so ' high as to be
ridiculous, ' ' said I.ieut.-Col. C. B. Coo
per, of the Hawaiaa National Guard,
, The surgeon said that, 'of course, the
medieal examinations, or requirements
for entry into the national guard were
not by any means so rigid aa those of
the regular army, but at the same time,
ha f)t that some assertions made were
preposterous and that such flfrures as
Ifcwtor Sinclair presented, were incred
ible. Doctor Hi nc lair asserted that nt least
one-tenth of' the national guard would
be rejected on account of tuberculosis
if tha guard were to be mobilized, and
that an additiouul one-third-of all its
members be physically disqualified for
other reasons. urgeon Cooper agrees
that under the rigid physical examina
tions made br reirular armr suraeons.
there would be. a large number of re
jections. As to tuberculosis Burgeon
Cooper gave bis opinion that Doctor
Sinclair's flguses were entirely out of
proportion; sn ; that M-Hy ' six actual

in recent eiaminations.

Torchlight Fishing
Off Waikiki
Popular Just Now
Scores of Hawaiian and Japan
ese Men, Women and Children
Nightly Spear Squid and Many
Toothsome Fishes
Torchlight fishing off the Waikikl
xhore ii now t nightly feature with
the Hawaiian and Japauose reaidents
of that district, the flares of a score of
lights lllumiuatiug the shallow waters
where the fishers, men, women - and
children, spear squids or octopus, weke
and other toothsome fishes.
This method was used a generation
ago by the Hawaiian. It Waa one of
the chief ways by which a native sup
plied his home with fish, and is today
being used by many aa a source of get
ting fresh fish for their tables.
The chief materials used in fishing
with the light of a torch are the spear, '
aud the so-called hand net. The former
is sometimes a 'three-pronged object.
This is the best for spearing fish. -The
eiu.le pronged sear is generally used
in sp'-'a.-'ing squids, as only a single
stick o, spilar is aecesaary to force the
squid out of its hiding place, which ia
generally a hole ia the rocks. When the
pointed pear is poked into the hole
the Sauid drnws itself out and clings
onto the spear, thus Disking it easy for
the fisher to grab It and kill it.
The net is generally about two feet
across aud is made so that a fish one .
iuch in diameter could not pans through I
the holes. The fisher carries this in I
one hand, anil when in trying to spear
the fish it escapes the spear he puts
the net into use and chases the fish
into it.
The different kinds of fish caught by
the ton-jh light and anear era squids,
large kuuilis, wekes, uhus and moanos.
Those caught with the net are gener
ally small fishes and lobsters.

from the proud status of East ludiamen
to the hapless lot of coastwise eoal and
lumber barges. This is something
which the gallant old masters and
mates who left them when they took
to this prosaic alongshore service never
dreamed. When their sails were un
bent, their lofty yards, topgallanr-hihsts
and topmasts sent down, and only the
stout lower masts left
seemed to be the end of all things tol
thoae who beheld in this something like!
ho act of desecration.
But with the war the brave old ships
have come into their own again. Many
of these vessels had been . admirably
constructed of the most careful chosen'
timber, and are found wonderfully
strong and staunch after; the lapse of
years. The best of these formqr ships
and barks are gradually being re-masted,
re-rigged 'and sent to sea. Butter
fit they are thau fore-aod-afters, as a
rule, to the arduous trade of offshore
voyaging. Their sail spread is better
divided; their masts better , stayed.
They are better adapted to take advan
tage of the steady pull of the trade
winds. .
But where, will be found their mas
ters, mates and crewsf With the de
cline of our sqnsre-rigged fleet, . our
square-rigged sailors seemed to be fsst
vanishing. Perhaps It may turn crt
that many of the officers left Jhe sea
only because they bad to, and can now
be recalled in time. Ho far as they have
or will come bock, the world is certain
to behold a splendid revival of honest,
brave, old fashioned seamanship,. Ma
