Whxtebait. —The Chinamen at Hokitika are catching whitebait by the ton. What are not sold by them in town are dried in the sun on big tables, on which they are constantly turned, and after being dried they are put into bags and shipped from the Coast and sold by the pound to Chinese customers. They ask Is. 6d., but if sold by the sack they readily fetch Is. per pound. The balance, for which they have no tables or boards to dry them on, are used as manure for their gardens, and if the wind is coming from their quarter the odour is like that from a slaughter-yard.
