Big run of alalaua, 1917.

THE ALALAUA¹ FISH IS A LIFE SAVER THESE DAYS.

All sorts of people are heading together these days to go pole fishing for alalaua: the piers are full of men, women, and children.

A few days ago is when the run of alalaua began by the piers near the prison of Kawa all the way until those by the mouth of the harbor. Even the haole went alalaua fishing at night, probably just for fun; however, for some, it is a true lifesaver, with the high cost of fish, where they can escape from buying fish [??]. If the alalaua keeps running in Honolulu Harbor, it is clear that the other desired fishes will be in trouble. God is the one who is controlling this, the prodding of this fish into the harbor; it is to alleviate the troubles of the people from the vise of the fish mongers.

All those going pole fishing should give their thanks to the Heavens for this great assistance, and we believe that the Heavenly Father will increase all kinds of fish more than this.

¹Alalaua (also seen as Alalauwa) is the juvenile stage of the Aweoweo.
