Japanese Raid in
Feathers and Down the Objects of
Attack and All Ages
IN THE OPINION of Dr. David Starr
Jordan and other scientists who
have been in the city recently there
is danger of the bird life upon the
many small Islands of this group being
wiped out or at least seriously dimin
ished by the raid of the Japanese. This
conclusion is reached from the fact
that It is believed that the party of
Japanese which was hunting birds on
Midway Island when the Iroquois went
there last year have been replaced by
another party, left there when the
schooner which acts as tender appeared
Prom the fact that there was so
much work done by the Japanese at
Miaway. it is tnougnt tnat there were
other parties operating upon the small
islands to the west, and if this is the
case there will be much damage done U
the bird life. The party of six men
found upon Midway by Captain Pond
was engaged in the collection of feath
ers and down, the varieties of birds be
ing taken indiscriminately. The attack
upon the birds was made in the most
unusual manner, as the young and the
old were being killed without any
choice. The old birds were taken as
often as the young and many of the
young were left to die from want of
The birds on the islands are princi
pally the albatross or goney, the tern,
the bo'sun bird and the loon. They are
so tame that they may be taken by
hand and robbed of their feathers or
killed without any weapons at all.
When they were found the men had
collected a large quantity of feathers
and were prepared for a stay of six
months more. This fact was reported
to the Department at Washington and
Captain Pond was given orders to make
a yearly trip to the islands to report
upon any squatters that might be
found. This was not done owing to tho
many duties of the commander of the
Iroquois, owing to the absence of Cap
tain Merry. Now the year is too far
advanced to make such a trip in as
small a vessel .as the Iroquois. As it
Is, however, there would be little utility
in a visit owing to the fact that there
is no authority for the stoppage of the
killing of the birds, only a call for a re
port upon any depredations.
That the concession of the bird and
fish privilege of these islands is val
uable is shown by the fact that soon
after the last year's trip of the Iroquois
there was an offer to take a lease of the
Midway Islands made by the Japanese
Consul to Governor Dole. There was
no action upon the proffer of the Jap
anese except the sending to the Consul
of a complete statement of the small
islands of the group. It is thought that
the plan of the Japanese was to secure
the exclusive rights to the hunting and
fishing privileges and then work them
for their utmost limit.
Commander Pond said yesterday that
though the scientists were afraid that
there would be a serious cutting into
the bird life that the immense number
of the birds of all species there made it
practically impossible to wipe them out,
as a few year3 of rest from hunting
would see the islands as well stocked
as before. Without doubt, he said, there
would be parties sent to other islands
where there are birds.
