THE STREETER PEARL FISHERY

Mr. T.. H. Haynes, of the firm of Streeter & Haynes has so far found the largest and most valuable pearl of the season, the value of it being estimated at £700. The fleet as a whole is doing exceedingly well, but the present excessive royalty, coupled with the low price of the shell, " takes a good deal of gilt off the ginger bread." Mr. T. H. Haynes was formerly a resident in Fiji, where he made the acquaintance of the late Lieut. Chippindall, R.N., who, on selling his estate in Savu Savu Bay, in the once cannibal colony, returned with Mr. Haynes to England. Here they met an old Fijian, Mr. Stonehewer Cooper, who at that time had just issued his large work entitled " Coral Lands," and which gave in extenso his experiences among Polynesian pearl divers. By him the two ex-settlers were introduced to Mr. Edwin W. Streeter, of Bond-street, the world-famous jeweller, who was then contemplating starting a large purely Polynesian pearl fishery. From enquires made by Stonehewer Cooper, it was deemed advisable to abandon the idea of fishing in the Pacific groups, and the head quarters of Mr. Streeter's extensive operations were therefore confined to the Northern and North-west coasts of this colony. Messrs. Cbippindall and Haynes were appointed joint managers of the fishery, and were afterwards joined by Mr, Streeter, junior. Both Messrs. Chippindall and Streeter have joined the great majority, and Mr. T. H. Haynes is, now alone in the field. The pearling fleet consists of many fine craft, notably the Telephone, which, in the great hurricane of some months back, successfully brayed the whole force of the storm. Mr. Streeter's operations in West Australian waters, in the Straits of Manaar, his connections with the. ruby mines in Burmah and in Queensland, are of the most extensive character, and place him in about,the foremost position among the wholesale jewellers of the age. At no distant date we may be in a position to give through these columns some hitherto unpublished facts connected with the pearl fisheries of this great firm, together with some equally MS.S. legends connected with the older and even more romantic oyster beds, which are enclosed in so many of the lonely atolls which dot the great South Seas.
