TIIK MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, SKPTKMliER 6, 1913,
Deputy County Attorney Vincent
returned from Molokui on Wednes
day last, lie went to the other
island to look into several matters,
and the most important of them
was a prosecution under Section 71,
11105 Session Laws of Hawaii. The
case was that in which two young
men were charged with setting fire
to a pasture and destroying over 70
acres of grass. The defendants
were found guilty and, as they de
flared that they did not intend to
do much tin enormous amount of
harm, and that they tried to put
the fire out in the early stages,
Judge Conradt fined them only 825
It appears that the two youths
were on foot, and proceeding to the
mauka lands nhove Pukoo. They
sat down to smoke cigarettes and,
so they declare, it was a. burning
cigarette that started the fire in the
grass and underbrush. The lads
say that they tried to prevent the
fire from spreading and then giving

R. DOUGHERTY, having iust
returned from New York and
other jewelry centers, where lie se
lected a large and beautiful assort
ment of jewelry, silverware and
crystal of the newest designs, an
nounces that in September, October
and November ho will visit Maui and
have the pleasure of showing these
examples of the highest art in the
jeweler's and silversmith's craft.
The exact dato that Mr. Dougherty
will bo on Maui will bo announced
up the nttempt, proceeded on their
way. Away down nt Pukoo the
glare was noticed that night and
Judge .Conrad t, who is also forest
warden, called upon volunteers to
go upon and fight the llames.
There was a ready response, and
the (ire-fighters kept at their work
all night and, finally, stopped the
progress of the flames toward the
big forest. If the fire had once
obtained a footing in the forest an
immense amount of damage would
have been done.
The prosecution conducted by
Mr. Yiucent is the first of the kind
ever tried before the local courts.
The penality in this case, although
not very severe, will, it is thought,
be a warning to other people who
may feel careless about starting
fires on forest reserves.
The Lahaina National Hank has
received a new manganese steel safe
weighing 3,500 pounds, valued at
$1200. It is of the same pattern as
tho safe in the Wailuku Rank, but
a little smaller. It li.is a time lock
and all the latest improvements.
This two manganese steel safes are
probably the only ones of that des

A practically noiseless type of
driving gear has been perfected by
Packard engineers. The worm bev
els as tney are known, are used in
the new Packard "38" and "48"
motor carriages. 1 hey are said to
assure a silent rear axle.
The new gears have done away
with the "back lash," that loose
ness between the teeth of straight
gears which causes noise in the dif
fereutial housing. Instead of hav
ing only the limited contact afford
ed by the straight bevel, tho teeth
oi tnc worm uevei are curveu so as
to have one set of teeth enmeshing
while the set adjoining is becoming
disengaged. This affords a more
continuous contact and promotes a
smooth, sliding action between the
bevel gear and the pinion.
The search for a noiseless typo of
gear has extended over a long
period. After months of planning,
expert tool makers were called in
for the preliminary work. It then
took just three weeks to turn out
the first set of gears. When com
pleted, they were thoroughly tested
in an experimental car and pro
nounced practically perfect. The
next step was to make them a
manufacturing proix)sition. It was
found impossible to bring them up
to Packard standards by existing
methods. It ljceame necessary to
design and perfect entirely new fix
tures for the gear cutting machines.
The hair line accuracy required
to perfect the worm bevel gears
means that the machining and
workmanship must be accurate to
the uttermost limit. Absolute con
formity to specifications is the
standard for the work. Each oper
ation in the course of manufacture
is followed by rigid inspection. In
struments are used which are capa
ble of measuring one tenth of one
thousindth of an inch. When
completed, the gears are the same
in every respect. Like all Packard
parts they are interchangeable.
Three Packard experimental cars
have completed a testing trip from
Detroit to Sniii Francisco. The en
gineers in charge followed the trail
of the "forty-niners" across the
plains, and turned south in I'tah,
going through Salt Lake City and
iround the lower end of the (treat
Salt Lake. This is the route that
was followed, by II. R. Joy, Presi
dent of the Packard Company, in a
recent preliminary survey for the
R. M. Hidey, Superintendent of
the Packard experimental shops,
left Detroit with one of the cars on
the evening of July 15. Two days
later, J. (i. Vincent, Chief En
gineer, started in pursuit and he in
turn was followed in twenty-four
hours by William R. MeCulla, As
sistant Research Engineer.
Hidey was heard from first in
Cheyenne. Wyoming, on July 20.
He waited there for the others, who
reached the city together on the
following day. The three cars ar
rived in Salt Lake City on July 25,
and after a day there, proceeded
west to Reno and thence over the
Sierras to the coast.
Payson W. Spaulding, of Evans-
ton, a pathfinder and prominent
good roads advocate, piloted the
cars for a short distance in Wyom
ing, lie states that at the time the
Packard went through, all the local
cars had gone into retirement to
wait for tho roads to dry after a
series of cloudbursts. Road condi
tions of this sort are sought by
Packard engineers in forework with
experimental cars. Each new mod
el is subjected to at least thirty
thousand miles of the hardest kind
of driving before receiving the final
O. K.. which permits it to be offer
ed to tho public.

To represent the industrial growth
of Greater Detroit, a mass picture of
7,000 employes of the Packard
Motor Car Company is included in
an educational film being prepared
under the direction of the Detroit
Uoard of Commerce. In order to
permit taking the picture on the
company's time, the Packard offi
cials advanced the regular Saturday
closing hour by twenty minutes.
This time cost the company 82,000
in round figures without taking into
account the value of the time lost in
the course of making preparations.
Approximately 200 foremen and
department heads were notified of
the plans and given detailed instruc
tions. The camera was focused from
a raised platform thus giving an ex
cellent view of the mass of workers
as they poured from the factory.
When thrown upon tho screen the
picture will show the moving mass
in the immediate foreground with a
