POISONED FISH KILLED THEM,
Three Japanese Meet Death In
Rather Suspicions Manner.

Flab Dead Men Present a Ghastly

It has long been the general be
lief, especially among the nativee,
that certain species of fish inhabit-
log Hawaiian waters contained
DoiBonous matter. The truth of the
question received verification by
the incident embodied below.
Yesterday morning three Japan
ese fishermen named Nishimura,
Tamagawa and Hashimoto, caught
near Moanalua a number of the
native oopu hui in their nets and
partook heartily of the fish, in
company with the wife of Hashi
moto. Shortly afterwards the men
began to experience violent pains
followed by a feeling of numbness
of the body. Becoming frightened,
the two weaker ones clrove into
town in a cart, while the stronger
walked, for the purpose of securing
medical advice concerning their
Nishimura, the one who walked
to town, went to the house of friends
on Beretania street, nearly opposite
Kaumakapili church and called Dr.
Kojima. The other two went to Dr.
W. Kobayashi's office on Bere
tania street, near Nuuanu street.
It was soon found that no relief
could be given the afflicted men.
All three were in the throes of
death when the physicians exam
ined them. Hashimoto was sent
back to his wife in Moanalua, where
he soon after expired. Yamagawa
died at his wife's home in a small
alley leading from Fort street, near
Kukui, and Mishimura succumbed
in a house near the Kamakapili
The woman who, in company
with the .three men, partook of the
dangerous fish, developed no symp
toms of poisoning.
The Japanese believe that by
planting the bodies of their dead in
the ground and allowing their
heads to extend above they can, in
some cases, renew life. This
method was carried out in the case
of Tamagawa. He was buried near
the fence forming one boundary of
the lane near Fort street, yesterday
afternoon at 2 o'clock. His head
was allowed to extend above
ground, and a box was placed over
it to keep out the damp air. The
dead man's head, thickly matted
with hair, and pale face presented
a ghastly appearance. Hs nose
wa3 almost snow white, the other
parts of the face being spotted
brown and white. The ears were
drawn and pinched. The head
was tilted forward, so that the chin
almost touched the loose ground
in which the dead man
was buiied. Japanese were
standing in groups around a
smouldering nre tailing in very
subdued tones, glancing every now
and then in the direction of the
temporary resting-place of their
deceased countryman. A flicker
ing lamp cast just enough light on
the scene to render every object
uncertain and uncanny. This afc
ernoon at 4 o'clock the body will
be removed, in case life does not
return by that time.
Nishimura was laid out on a bed
in the house near Kaumakapili
church. His forehead was cov
ered with thick perspiration, and
froth like that which comes from
the mouth of a mad dog oozed
from his nostrils at intervals. The
face was ghastly white, but the
body up to the neck was the color
of burnt skin. The upper bound
ary of this red color was jagged
and extended around the neck.
The fish eaten by the Japanese
is said to be healthy food when
properly prepared. The natives of
the islands frequently eat them
without experiencing any ill effects.
The troublesome part of the fiah is
said to be the gall, which must
always be carefully removed before
preparation. The Japanese did
not do this and the result was
In appearance the fish is said to
resemble the porcupine species.
It has the power of dilation by
means of air sacks, and is covered

THURSTON IS COMING.
It Is About All That Is Known of
the Affair on This End.
The reports of Minister Thurs
ton's probable recall, published in
another column, very naturally
caused quite a sensation when the
news became known about town
In Government circles the whole
thine was at first pronounced a
fake, until the Foreign Office mail
brought a telegram from Mr.
Thurston, stating he was on his
way to Honolulu. This is the only
information in the hands of the
Government, Mr. Thurston's pre
vious letters containing no intima
tion it sucn were nis in
. m m a
tentions. Minister Willis was
seen and stated that he
knew absolutely nothing of the
affair, except as brought to him by
newspaper reports. Nothing offi-
cial has been brought to his notice.
Mr. Willis expressed his regret at
the possibility of strained relations
existing between this country and
the United States, and hoped the
story might prove without founda
tion. Mr. Thurston's mother received a
letter from him, dated March 20th,
telling her not to be disturbed by
reports in the papers, and that Mr.
and Mrs. Thurston expected to stay
in Wabhington for the present.
In a letter to Chief Justice Judd
from Admiral Walker, dated March
19th, no reference whatever is
made to the reports. A letter from
San Francisco to the Advertiser
says, kI learn that Thurston has
not received any word from the
State Department regarding the
alleged recall. He leaves for Hono
lulu on April 4th by the Arawa, to
confer with the Government. He
is expected here daily."
