Woodland Daily Democrat (Newspaper) - July 19, 1890, Woodland, California VOL. XXVI WOODLAND. YOLO COUNTY. CAL.. SATUKDAY EVKXING, JULY 19, 1890. NO 154 A STRANGE HUMAN KACE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PEOPLE ON THE YEZO ISLAND, Tfca AlncM and tho fit Who of tho Kunu I U of Profeiwar Hitch- Kzplurutluiil. Standing In the midst of a collection In ft big glass recently set up in the No- tional museum at V'naliington Is the figure of a man u little below the average height of the Caucasian. This IB a typical Aioo, modeled by tho clever artists attached to the museum; flesh tints, eyes, beard, hair and all reproduced exactly ae they appear In Ufa and clod in garments woven by Ainoa. Around him are household imple- ments, shuttles for weaving, fishing spenra and tackle, boiva and arrows and the other rude furnishings that represent all tout the arts of this primitive people have produced to raise them above absolute savagery. An Interesting part of thocoUcctionlsanAino house reproduced In miniature, with iLa OUBO and other appurtenances. The Aino in the center of the cose has a great shook of gray hair, a huge gray beard and shaggy eyebrows. His complexion 19 of a light coppery hue, his cheek bones high and his nose straight, but broad at the base. On his head Is a triangular ahaped head dress. A long gown girdled at the waist and ornamented with designs embroidered 10 white on dark bine bnse reaches from his shoulders be low his knees. Hla legs down to MB anklca are protected by leggings and his feet are bare. Over one shoulder is slung by s light strap a haver- sack woven of rushes. In his belt or girdle at his left side Is supported a wooden quiver filled with arrows, and behind IB his girdle IB thrust a carved Stick, to which is" kt- tached the little basket or pouch in which the Aino carries his supply of smoking to- bacco. LITE OF THE The modern explorer carries a camera over hla shoulder or secured apon saddle. When he gets home if any one qneatlons his statements he can produce the irrefutable evidence of a photographic record. Professor Bomyn Hitchcock, of National museum, when he traveled recently In the island of Yezo, Japan, and the islands known as the Kurilos, stretch- Ing In a, long chain northward from Tezo almost to Kamchatka, collected not only complete series of specimens illustrative of the life of the inhabitants of these al- most unknown lands, but also secured a large number ol photographs that in make a graphic and interesting rec- ord of his journey. The case in which the model of the Aino stands Is filled with the apedmcns collected by Professor Hitch- cock. The Aino figure was modeled on photographs and measurements taken by him from these far away shores. It has been only recently that anything been known of any part of Yezo, ex- cept certain districts lying on the coast. The first extensive exploration, of the isl- and made by an American, T, W. Blaktaton, tn 1873. Mr, Elakiston, how- ever, confined his observations chiefly to the birds and plants and contributed vastly to the knowledge of the botany and or althology of the region. No one explored the country to any extent with a view to Bta dying its human Inhabitants until Mr. Hitchcock made his journey in 1888. Such Information as had been printed concern- ing the Alnos was gathered by travelers wio visited the coast settlements in the of Hakodate and Nerooro. In at these settlements the native cus- of the Ainos have been corrupted by contact with the Japanese, and their phys- ttJul characteristics have been obliterated or modified by intermarriage with the Jap- anese. Even among the Japanese who are found as Hakodate such Ignorance exists as to the of the Island that Professor Hitchcock was assured be would find no AlnoB in the northern part of the island, whither he intended journeying, and he almost led by the positiveness of the aarorances to change his route and content himself with skirting along the coast to Nemara. At Nemoro, however, he wnaen conraged to proceed, and he continued his travels coastwise to ft point on the northern of the island, and then turning inland made a Journey on horseback of 600 miles through mountainous interior of tho Inland. THE PIT DWELLERS. When naked by a reporter about the re- galtn of his explorations, Mr. Hitchcock first, of evidences he had found relat- ing to the inhabitants of the island preccd Ing the Aino occupation. These evidences In tho form of pits, generally rectan- gular in shape and found in groups on the cosat, indicating that was once Inhabited by pit dwellers. When, in 1S7.1, the Japanese government ceded tho big Island of Soghalien to Russia it received in Wturn from Russia n qmt claim to the Enrlle Islands. The few inhabitants of these islands were collected together aiul moved to Shikoton, ft small Island just off the coast of Yezo, where they could be npiircr the Japanese. These people lived cliiefly by fishing and emigrated constantly from ono island to another. Now, under tho changed conditions in which they live in Shikotan, they are dying oft rapidly. Professor Hitchcock when ho visited them found that the remnant of the tribe existing numbered only about seventy- five people, many of whom were enfeebled by consumption. Their dress resembled that of Europeans and indicated tho effects of Russian Influence. Their features and hair are much like those of the Esquimaux. The special point of interest In thorn dis- covered by Professor Hitchcock was tlia character of their dwellings. Tbcy build up walls or mounds of earth, which they thatch over. The floors ore a foot or two below the ground outside. These hovels tboy collapse form, in the course of time, pita like those discovered on the coast of Yezo. This fact is tjiken by Pro- fessor Hitchcock us evidence that tliia peo- ple, now represented by ft handful of men, women and children, less in number than tho inmaUw of an ordinary tenement house, once inhabited the great Island of Yem. The Japanese conduct tho business of the island and are settled Inconsidcrjiblunujn- bers at Hakodate, Nemoro and other where tho products ol tho fisheries and of the few industries of the Island are Blilppcd. Tho Ainos dwell, us a rulu, on the const, us tln-j subsist chiefly by fishing. In the jo sir ne j through the interior IVo- fessor IIHthcfH-L, who had a Japan rsa companion, found few tn (militants. At ono place he (omul of Ainos en- gaged In mining for sulphur on the aido of an active volcano. Professor Hitchcock described the Ainos to the reporter nn the dirtiest o[ mon. rhoy never wiish, and their hidr and board, which are of most luxuriant growth, hang ibout tn n rrmttal mass.
