For Settlers of Kihei
By Mixing Barley with Algaroba Beans
Expects to be Able to Grind Feed
In Ordinary Mill.
Edwin C. Moore of Haiku sub-station
Is In Honolulu for the purpose of
trying some experiments in grinding
sun-dried algeroha . beans for feeding
purposes. He stated yesterday that
Prof. F. J. Krauss, who Is in charge
of the Haiku sub station of Pie Hawaii
experiment station, has succeeded in
grinding the untreated pods in a small
bur mill by first cutting them in short
pieces and mixing the beans wHh
equnl parts of barley.
Mr. Moore wants to try out the new
method on a larger sca'.e than was
possible at Haiku. He also wishes to
use other materials than barley as a
surrogate. He has requested the Col
lege of Hawaii to supply the feed
grinders and the power and Is trying
to arrange through J. M. Westgate, di
rector of the experiment station a
series of cooperative tests of the food
value of the new stock feed. Its keep
ing quality is also a point on which
careful determinations must be made.
A Maui Problem.
The Kihei homesteaders, Mr. Moore
said, have an annual crop of about 350
tons of algeroha beans the present
value of which is about ten dollars
per ton. The processed and ground al
geroha meal now being shipped to
Mnui from Honolulu costs about three
times that, at wholesale. He said
that the Maul users as well as the pro
ducers consider the margin between
the raw bean and the finished product
larger than It should be.
If a practical method can be worked
out of grinding the beans without
steaming or heating them first then,
Mr. Moore said, the homesteaders can
themselves prepare the feeding mater
and se'l it direct to the consumers.
The difficulty of making a satisfactory
meal out of the unprocessed algeroha
pod has been that the gum and sugar
in the pods are too sticky. If the sun
dried pods can be ground up the home
steaders ought to be able to get bet
ter prices for their beans and at the
same time somewhat lower the price
of the manufactured product to the
The details of the experiment have
not as yet been arranged. Mr. Moore
has received permission from Mr.
Krauss and Professor Westgate U,

new method. He will remain in Ho
