Chief Engineer C. B. Coltrell, of
the K. II. U. Co. is experimenting
with oil-burners for the locomotive
engines in use on his road.
He has already' fitted' the station
ary engine used to pump oil nt tho
oil tanks with fuel burners, and the
eult has proved satisfactory. He
nett fitted up the locoifiotivc engine,
No. 3, with oil burners, and the re
sult has proved an entire success SO
far as the traction or nauling power
is concerned. Theoil burners gen
erate steam readily, and on Tr.esdav
ho hauled a train of cars from Kahu-
iui to Wailuku with the new fuel. Its
use is regulated by a very simple
mechanism constructed by himself on
the conventional pattern, and is
easily lilted to any engine.
It consists of two hollow tubes, one
inside the other. The inner tube con
veys the oil from the tank on the
tender, and the larger tubt, which
incloses the inner tube, v illi a small
space between them, leads, frum the
steam chest, both pipes terminating
in the furnace ivbiotihas been 'lined
with lire bricks, to protect the boil
In order to got up steam, a wood
tire is bt.i.t m lue furnace, s ui.viei i
to generate about live pounds o.r
steam, which is all that is ueedi-d to
operate the burner. nen this small
head of s loam is generated, it is turn
ed oj and forces a spray of oil into
the furnace. The amount of steam
and oil are regulated by hand screws,
and can be increased, diminished c:.'
regulated bv a turn of the .vrist. .
Mr. Coltrell states that It will
kc about two and one-half barrels
of oil per day for No. 3 engine to
do her regular work, which means a
s.iving of about 25 iter cent in fuel.
In a brief interview, Supt Filler of
I he K. H. R. Co. expresses himself
is much pleased with present results
of tho use of oil (wl for his locomo
tives, but is not over sanguine as to
final results, it being feared that oil
fuel will burn out the boiler machin
ery too fast, and possibly render it
advisable to return to the use of
coal. The matter will be fully exper
imented with however, and the result
will be at least instructive.
Sea Fisheries Public
The Supremo Court rendered a de
cision on the test fishery cass Sat
urday aftornoon. It it written by
Justice Galbraith, who with Judge
De Bolt and Robinson heard the case,
Frear and Perry being disqualified.
The opinion holds that the Hawai
ian statutes giving konoliiliis in the
sea fisheries were not grants of pro
perly but were public statutes in
which no one could acquire a vested
right, and that when repealed by
the Organic Act no one had any
"private property in such fishery."
It. is also hold that exclusive rights
in a sea fishery surrounding these
Islands could not be acquired by an
cient custom, nor a Royal Patent
convey a right to such fishery.
Justice Galbraith goes at length
into the history of the fishery laws of
the Islands, showing where at first
the king had an interest in the fish-
cries and that, this was abandoned
whea it was found that the busiuess
was not profitable to the government.
Thereafter the fishing rights were
granted to tho people and tho court
holds that there could not be private
right through ancient custom.
A number, of Hawaiian Supreme
Court decisions are.' quoted as show
ing that the fisheries should not be
included as an appurtenance to the
land or by a royal grant. The opinion
concludes: "Under the common law
the riirht of fishing in the open sea
like that of havigation was a public
right. The gi ant of exclusive right
to a sea fishery cannot be presumed
Every ambiguity or doubt in tho in
strument by which tho right is
claimed to be granted will construed
most strongly against the grantee

or series of mistakes, and that Jimmy

The Puunene Bazaar.
On last Friday overling, the broad
lanais of tho Baldwin residenca at
Puunene wa3 ablaze with electric
lights which revealed a beautiful and
attractive scene prepared by the
Mafcawuo Ladies' Aid Society, it be
ing the occasion of their second annual
fair or bazaar, held for the purpose
of raising funds for charitable pur
poses. In the center was the Japanese tea
garden, a dainty and effective onen-,
tal design, presided over by Mrs. D. 1
R. Lindsay and Misses Eva and
Ethel Smith. Th? fancy work booth,
beautifully oecorated in red, white
and blue, offered a large and elegant
display of ladies' handwork, and was
in chargu of Mrs. W. F. Hard and
Mrs. B. D. Baldwin. The lemonade
booth, one of the favorate resorts of
the evening, was a picture of litrht
and color, pink and green prevailing,
and the delicious brew was gracefully
serveu by Mrs. V. O. Aiken and
Misses Coolege and Fleming. The
heart shaped candy Oooth was "just
too sweet,"' and lost none of its
charms at the hands of Mrs. H. A.
Baldwin and Mrs. F. F. Baldwin.
The iish pond was a quaint, conceit,
the lishing being done from a ruttic
bridge, and was "gracefully" presid
ed over by Mrs. Waterhonse ana Miss
Belle Dickey. Mrs. J. J. H air prov
ed a very clever and efficient post
mistress, and Mrs. James Scott was
an ideal gypsy fortune teller. Mrs.
Y.T. S. Nicoll and Miss Sabey sold
handkerchiefs and Mrs. E. B. Cailey
supplied an elegant line of ties.
More substantial refreshments were
served in the timing room in charge
of Mrs. H.P. Baldwin and Mrs. Dora
Very little was left unsold at the
end of the entertainment, and that
little was readily disposed of by Hon.
H. P. Baldwin, who successfully as
sumed the rolo of auctioneer for that
Notwithstanding the inclemency of
tho weather, there was a large
crowd ' in attendance and the total
receipts for the evening were $475.
A Thanksgiving Poem.
Professor James Pryor Looncy of
Lahainaluna, has published in pam
phlet form a Thanksgiving poim
which embraces the entire one hun
dred and thirteen years of our nat
ional life, and gilds with rich poetic
glow the leading historical event's
which have brought joy and sorrow
to our nation.
While the diction is classic and the
poetical utterance rythmic, yet the
fidelity of the entire poem to the
chronological history of the United
States is remarkable. As one reads,
a panoramic vision rises in which are
clearly outlined scenes of peace and
war by land and sea, of national
progress, and of sad or golden deeds,
while in a- long array, the noble band
of men who have made our history
move in slow and stately procession
across tha scene.
Tho theme and teaching of the
poem is American and healthful, and
with heads reverently bowed we may
well join with tho gifted author in his
"That an angel bright on painted
May fly this way and blessings
To fill our hearts today."
Storm at Lahaina.
On last Sunday morning, the storm
god that constantly rages on the
windward side of West Maui over
leaped the mountains and bore down
on the Lahaina side with unprece
dented storms o.' wind and rain.
Trees were leveled, telephone poles
overthrown 'and cloud bursts carried
torrents of water, mud and boulders
across the road, rendering it iirpas
sable in places. The heaviest storm
was between Olowalu and tho pali,
out its enects were ieit as far as
Kaanapali. The road has been re
paired so that travel can be resumed
Mr. Eekberg, the sewing machine
man, was caught in the storm, be
tween tho pali and Olowalu, and was
nearly blown out to sea.
