Like a powerful giant awakened
from deep slumber, the Puunene
Mill on Wednesday morning at 10:45,
gave a great; shiver that clanked
and rattled its iron limbs, stretched
forth its great arms, puffed forth
gulus of fct.eam, and began to draw
between its teeth tons of juicy, suc
culent caue from which veru aoou
flowing a little river of cane juice.
So wisely planned and so well built
was the vast array of machiney that
it moved as though it had a soul
hidden somewhere which controlled
and directed its movements. " Every
piston, belt and pulley did its work,
andjlhad one' strolled into the mill
half an hour after it began to run,
ho could not hfrve told by observation
that the mill was running on a trial
To Mr. J. N. S. Williams', the con-
structjng engineer, belongs the
credit of having so well fulfilled his
tr.ust that the mill proved a success
from the time that the first cane
stalk dropped between the rollers.
The mill will probably run till this
evening, and will be closed tomorrow,
to start up on Monday for tho sea
A full and technical description of
the mill would transcend the limits
of a , newspaper article. Briefly,
however,' the cane is brought to the
carrier in cars, and is unloaded by
two of Gregg's Improved Cane Uu
loaders. Passing through the rollers,
the stream of juice is pumped to the
third floor where it first passes
through a series of sand filters, after
which it is carried to " the limo vats
to be clarified." From there it is
carried to an octuple' system of
Liilie evaporators on the first floor,
and froni there to the crystallizing
pans.' Mr. H. P, Baldwin states
that experience has recently proven
that 'a sextuple Liilie evaporator
system is sufficient, but that at the
time of installing the system it was
deemed wiser to provide for an oc
tuple effect, Further experiments
is this direction will be made at the
mill. The crystallizing vats like
every other appliance about the oill
are of the latest improvement known,
and Puuuene may fairly claim to be
the best as well as the largest mill
Mr. Morris Liilie the inventor ef
the Liilie evaporator system was
piesent, and also Mr. Warner who
represents the firm which installed
the crystallizing pans.. Mr. Warner
will remain for some weeks in charge
of the sugar boiling, and Mr. Walter
Lowrie and Mr. John Decoto will be
the regular sugar boilers. Mr.
Williams has accepted the appoint
ment of chief engineer, and his as
sistant will be Mr. Coffee.
JThe prespnt capacity of tho mill is
750 tons per week, but another set
of rollers is to be. added soon, which
will double its capacity. In the future,
a third set of rollers will added, if
necessary, which will bring the pro
ducing capacity of thp mill to about
500 tons per day,
Among those present were Hon,
H. P. Baldwin, Morris L,illie, Mr.
Warner, B. D. Baldwin, Dr. Diuegar,
and quite a number of interested
lady spectators, beside, the News

account of his reputation as a "blow-
hard," to pull the rope for a pro
longed noon whistle.

with his concert troupe of boys from

reception ou Maui, and left for Hon

While at Wailuku, the boys were
entertained as guests by School
Inspector Keliinoi, and were the
recipients of several pigs and barrels
poi from generous friends. Besides
giviug entertainments at Maunaolu,
Puunene, Wailuku andLahaina, they
played and won two games of base
ball with the M. A. A.s, and also
furnished the music at a dance given
for their benefit at the Windsor
Pavilion on Wednesday evening.
It is the intention of Prof. King
to visit some of the other islands
with the boys, for the same laudable
object which brought them to Maui,
and it is hoped that they may meet
with the same generous support
which met thojr efforts ou Maui.

Laliainaluua, Semir.ary, has just
received a valuable Christmas pre
sent irom the Depr.rtmr-nt of cduca
li.ui, consisting of apparatus for
illustrating Physical ana Chemical
Science. Prof. J. P. Looney is pre
paring to divide tho classes in these
sciences, so that they will go into
the laboratory for experiments one
day, and into, the class room for
recitation from the text on the follow
ing day; thus allowing the students
ta test the principles before they
are required to recite on the subject.
This will certainly bo a great im
provement. Walter H. Hayselden is visiting
his mother, who has been somewhat
indisposed, but is now much better.

To Be Incorporated.
Articles of incorporation are be
ing drafted for the Maui Soda & Ice
Works, and a charter of incorporat
ion will be at once applied for.
The plant will be captilized at $35,
000, and it is understood that a block
of the stock will be placed on the
market, although Mr. Wadsworth
will subscribe for and retain a maj
ority of the stock, Application has
been made by two or three parties
to take up all the stock to be sold,
but the management deem it wiser
to sell the stock in smaller lots. At
the proposed capitalization, the stock
will pay large dividends, and it will
undoubtedly be snapped up as soon
as placed on the market.
The articles of incorporation will
also provide for the installation and
operation of on electric light and
power plant, whenever deemed ad
Death of Eddie Dickins.
On last Sunday, little Eddie Dick
ins, the eldest sou of Mr. A. J. Dick
ius, manager of Lovejoy & Co. at
Wailuku, died at his home in Wai
luku, of dysentery. He had been sick
for ten or twelve days, and through
the unremitting attention of his phy
sician, was beginning to recover, but
during the latter part of the week
he had a relapse, and passed away
Little Eddie was a very bright,
lovable child and tho grief of the
parents is deeply felt by nil thoso
who had learned to know and love
It is supposed that the origin of
the sickness was the use of the water
from Iao river, as several other
children have recently died in the
same vicinity from the same cause.
