WOULD HARM HAWAIIANS Use of Giant Powder Would Soon Drive Our Shore Fis.i Away. The majority of citizens are against any legislation that will tend to dimin ish the present supply of fish in the Hawaiian-waters, and heartily score the bill introduced by Senator J. Brown of Hilo, which, if passed, will permit fish- ermen to use explosives within the reefs and other fishing grounds where the vvnen ner iamny nnany urea or me . ,. 0 . i farce she refused to give It up, and was finny tribes are more numerous, than Inl t dlBCOVered untilB.she married the places which are more handy to fisher- J daughter of a schoolmaster and squan- men in general. I dered all her wife's money. ' Tradition, , .,, unoi-.,.,, iof course, furnishes examples of women A number of representative business' Q for'reasons of 8tat held M men have been interviewed upon the high civil and ecclesiastical offices, as in subieet. Thev are all of one mind that 1 the fable of ''Pope Joan." But a real the bill as it stands is an atrocious one and will do the country more harm than good. Henry Waterhouse says the annulment of any portion of the law prohibiting the use of explosives in the waters where fish abound is reprehensible. "It is the most short-sighted piece of legislation that I have ever seen intro duced in a Legislature," he said Who does it hurt the most? The Hawaiians naturaljy. They mostly live from hand mnuth hv rinv nnrt noi and fish ' are their staple articles of food. Remove the fish and you see what happens. Poi I is becoming scarcer as each year rolls ! by, but to take away the fish well, 1 j cannot understand how a native can in i troduce or support a bill of this sort and ; be In bs right senses. ! "Furthermore the use of slant powder by it'.- natives causes much damage to them. The most of the natives whom I you see minus a hand, suffered by try ing to . catch fish with dynamite. Public sentiment, I know, is against permitting the use of explosives in our food-fish wnt.Ts. I certainly deplore legislation of this kind. ' "Around the Island of Niihau the fish are plentiful . and the natives do not use other than the usual methods for i catching them. The waters there are 1 alive with them. If explosives are in troduced, however, it will not taitt- a great while to drfve all the fish away." Senator Cecil Brown of Oahu is heart ily against the proposition. He heliev.s that the old law should stand as It is, prohibiting explosives from being used in any place where fish thrive. "There is no use, however, of making a fight on the Senate floor against the V til I""-, J?;'".!.?. : ,7 Tou might just as well Putt your SrerS. shoS-slgWd as to wan the bill to go through, why I suppose it will go, pell-mell. This is a bad meas ure, and would certainly make our sup ply of fishes very short indeed. I am against anv DroDoeltion by which the food fishes of the Island waters will be diminished. It will hurt the Hawaiians more than any one else, and certainly at the present time the price of fish is hlsrh enough." Secretary of the Territory Henry K. Cooper me of the first men here to organize an association which hnd for j its purpose the preservation of the fish j m Hawaiian waters, and to prevent thf.,r who1(lf)ai,, destruction, characterizes the ,-ittempt to permit the use of explo- i sives within the hitherto sacred limits . as indefensible. i "tt .em ttv.t fnt strontr ele- . - v .... . r- nn nt in such a hill being introduced in- to the Legislature just at the time when we. who had associated ourselves to gether to increase the fish supply here, were about to tr.-t aid from the Federal ; Government. This bill permits the na- j tive and Japanese fishermen to get fish fhy means of Riant powder or any explo- ; slve that will destroy them by tne the wholesale. Just the removal of 'words 'reefs or waters' gives every one ! a privilege which is not allowed in any other place where the community de- ; nends larirelv for its food supplies upon i the fish. We have been working hard I to arrive at some methods bV which the : fish now in the waters can 6e protected, that Is the smaller ones, s. that in tlm" ; there will bp ample qupjili.-s of food ; fishes for all. "Only vesterday morninc I sow near my residence on the shores of Pearl Harbor, Japanese fishermen netting in thousands of mullets not longer than one's freflnerer. TheV were dumped in to barrels and probably f"d to boss or they will be used as fertilizer. This, to mv mind, is nothing short of criminal. These men, with no thonrht of the fu ture, destroy every r"ss'hle means bv which our waters may teem with fish. Now to add giant n wdcr to this Indis criminate ue of the nets and .. seines would remove a source of food supnly which would naturally hit the naMv Hawaiian hardest. "The Federal anthorlt'es are soon to send representatives of the United State Fish Commission. They will investigate the species which are la these waters, and also the methods by which thev are caueht. and make a full renort to Washington. Tn that report will also, no doubt, be interesting matter relating to their wholesale destruction." T. W. Hobron, the yachtsman, and one of the members of the association for the preservation of fish, said he was against the measure Introduced by Brown of Hilo. He characterized it as reckless and harmful. "Tf the natives could only be mide to see that this measure is In reality kill ing the goose that is laying golden eggs for them, then there would be some hope, ft is like taking food right out of their mouths. I think that Ce?ll Brown will make a hard fight on the question, but If the Introducer of the bill has his bead hard set, I don't sun- I poe talk against It will do any good, i We have rot to preserve the fish here. iThp Hawaiians will feel the loss of the j fish most, and they ought to be consld ! ered, especially by the Hawaiian mem ! hers of the Legislature. "Ther" is another nhase to this mat ter which is also Interesting and should be a big argument against the passage of the bill, and that Is this: The use of explosives by the natives will malm them and render the majority of them cripples for life. 1 presume that nine tenlhs of the Hawaiians without one or both hands, lost them by attempting to catch fish by the use of giant powder, i They don't know how to use it, but If i the law gives them the privilege of us I ing It openly, the danger w'U ve great. ' I had two friends who lost their hands that way. "I certainly don't want to see any j legislation pass that will diminish this particular food supply." WOMEN IN MEN'S CLOTHES.

History furnishes num berless examples from anciem times to , the more modern instances noted by Kraff-Ebing. Perhaps me most famous case, ol this kind is that of the "Countess' Sarolta j Vay, ten years ago. The child of an Aus- ; trian colonel with a large family cf daughters only, she was reared as a boy and was a well-known "man about ' town." in Pesth, drinking and smoKing, and even appearing in military miform. case is of the opposite sort that of the Chevalier D'Eon, who, when Louis XV. wanted a woman to act as secret agent on a Russian mission, assumed tha role and broke a dozen hearts In Moscow. The sex of one Englishman, a figure at court, was discovered only by death, while Queen Christina of Sweden, after re signing her crown at 28, spent half her time in European cities dressed In man's attire.

NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 28. The pres I sure of the Confederate pension fund i "n the financial resources of the South- I ern States is growing steadily greater. j Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama Hov. nil K-.n .... ,i .v.a nnnr..mt;.. r.. , .., c,,i ; ' - I '.l VJJ I 1U.V1 VI I 1 ' ' I V UIJ I, Ml 1 llH. J! UC'IIJII I , this vftar. j In Louisiana the increase required a constitutional amendment, which was adopted by an overwhelming popular vote in November last. Alabama had sought to limit the expenditure for this purpose by a law levying a special tax for the support of Confederate veter ans; but the provision proved as im potent to check the flood of pensions as the constitutional limitations in Louisiana. A few days ago the Ala bama House of Representatives ap propriated $100,000 for pensions for the Confederate veterans in addition to the Snecial Pension tax. Several of the members approved the appropriation in speeches in which they declared their high respect for the veterans who fought in the lost cause, "But the first duty of the State's rep- resentativt-s." said Mr. Whiteson, of Talledega, who led the opposition to more pensions, "is to protect the treas- Other members who favored the ap propriation reminded the Alabama leg islators of "their duty to the men who followed Lee and Jackson." and by an overwhelming majority of 73 to 16, the Alabama House declared that the Con federate veterans should have addi tional pensions, whether the treasury could stand it or not. In Mississippi the pension appropria tion was doubled this year, and yet such is the rush for pensions, that it failed to accomplish its purpose of pro viding a living for the old and infirm Confederates. The veterans are get ting only $,''.4 a year, or $2.93 a month, less than they can possibly live on. Some radical remedy Is needed, and the Mississippi Legislature attempted to supply one last year by passing a number i t new pension laws, especially to prevent fraud. In Florida the pension system prov ed even worse, and the appropriate s for Confederates reached such enor mous proportions that the popular sen timent insisted upon a check. So far. the Gulf States have failed completely in reaching any stable pen si n system. Their laws on the sub ject have been changed at every ses sion of the Legislature. Every check intended to prevent treasuries of the several States from being swamped by the floods of pensions has been swept away by appeals to sentiment. A leg islator has but to use the words "Lee and Jackson" to carry any pension measure he may favor over all oppo sition. The pension matter will soon reach a critical stage and the appropriations for pensions will be greater than the finances of the States will allow; in deed, no one is able to show how Ala bama can afford the $100,000 extra It has Just voted for Confederate veter ans, without interfering very consider- , ably with other expenditures. vr O AGENTS fOR - SALE OP REAL ESTATE F.
