THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1917.
Captain Fined For
Assaulting A Sailor
"Vnl" Stevenson, editor of the Haw
all Herald, has discovered the proper
dope on why the Hilo Y. M. I's were
so badly defeated at Wailuku. All
the pilikia is charged up to the fast
diamond (plain dirt, with a coating
of grass.) Hut anyhow, here is what
When a hasehall team that has
heen used lo rlavine on a rather
rough ground gets onto a Held that is
as smooth as a tennis court and which
is as fast as greased lightning, some
tiling unpleasant Is going to happen
the visitors. It is always a shock to
shortstop and third when they see
the ball coming like a bullet straight
down the "groove" and the desperate
effort to block the ball and cut oft
the runner is generally messed up as
the ball gets through short before he
realizes that it is really anywhere
near him. "Now, what do you think
of that?" the unfortunate player will
ask as left field gathers up the ball
and relays it to the diamond.
Then, the opposing batters, having de
tected the weak spot in the enemy's
armor, begins to shoot the pill at
shortstop until that unfortunate
wishes he were dead or in the hospital.
Every error that is made by him gets
his goat more and more and finally
he cannot see straight, much less
Well, that is about what happened
at Wailuku last week when the Hilo
team played a series of three games
against All-Maul. The ground was
too fast for the Hilo lads and as
many errors were charged to short
stop and third baseman in a couple
of the games, the whole team was
handicapped a lot. Nakamura, at
slinrt in the second game, made six
errors and everybody knows what
that means. "Boxer" played the posi
tion in the first game, but threw his
arm away right then and was not in
any of the other games. This was
hard luck for Hilo, but the players
are not kicking in any way. They
say that the heavy sluggers of the All
Maui team and the fast diamond were
the causes of their three defeats.
Billy Bal, of Maui, proved to be the
hero of the series. This fine young
player pitched, caught and played
first base in the three respective
games. He swatted out a home run
in each game and proved himself to
be a good man in any position. To
pitch one game, catch another and
hold down the initial sack in a third
besides getting three home runs is
somethng of a record for a ball play
er, and that is what Bal did for All-
Maui last week.
BY MAUI WOMEN
Captain "Jack" Morris, master of
the American schooner A. V. Coats,
in Kaliulul harbor, was arrested Fri
day night on a charge of assault and
battery preferred by one of his sailors
named Faul Schroeder. He was ad
judged guilty, in the Wailuku district
court Saturday morning and fined $30
which he promptly paid.
Owing to the war situation, sailors
are not allowed to take anything
aboard American ships without per
mission and an examination of the
irticles. In addition, it seems that
liquors are tabu on the Coats. Schro
eder and Mate Kinr.rvichar Lono had
been ashore and returned lo their ship
with a sack of beer. The captain
saw them coming aboard, and there
was trouble instantly.
Accounts differ as to just what
happened, but the claim of the sailors
that Captain Morris assaulted Schro
eder with a hammer, striking mm on
the back of the head and rendering
him unconscious, and then beating
him up with his fists, impressed the
court as being true. The Captain
claimed that he struck the man with
his fists to prevent a counter assault,
himself being on crutches and not in
good physical trim at the time on ac
count of a recent accident. In court
Schroeder certainly looked as though
he had been very severely handled.
Schroeder is a German, and it is
stated that on the voyage down the
relations between he and the captain
were not the most cordial on account
of it. Just how much that had lo do
with the assault, however, of course
no one knows.
Schroeder and the mate, Lono, were
both paid off and have left for Hono
tutu uhpre thev exnect to ship on
some other vessel.
A son of Harry J. Auld, of Honolulu
well known in the Islands, is a sailor
on the Coats.
A Department Of Domestic Economy Intended To Serve A Patriotic
Purpose In Conserving Food Needed By The Allied Armies In Europe
Health Offiicer Calls
Kirk B. Porter, secretary of the
Board of Health, was in Wailuku at
the week-end and discussed with Sani
tary Inspector Osmer the question of
a mosquito campaign. From the com
ments of the secretary, it appears
quite unlikely that Maui will be able
to pry loose any money from the ap
propriation for this work.
Mr. Porter went hunting on Molo
kai for several days. He was accom
panied on the trip by W. H. Charlock,
bookkeeper for the Hustace-Peck Co.
New Postage Rates
In Effect Today
The new rates on postage will go in
toeftect at 5 p. m. today, and lorawhile
at least, the Maui posloflices will have
to handle many short-postage letters,
unless people exercise care until they
"get the habit." Drop letters are now
two cents in place of one; while let
ters to go anywhere from the office of
mailing must carry three cents. The
Maui offices have not yet received
their three-cent stamps, so one two
cent stamp and one one-cent will have
to be used on each letter. Of course
any letter with a two-cent stamp on
it will go, but the parly at the other
end, in such a case, will have to "dig
up" one cent before it is delivered.
This rate applies anywhere in the
United States and to any foreign coun
try formerly having the two cent rale
with the United States.
In the matter of postcards tjie Maui
offices will be able to work a "wrin
kle" which will do for awhile, and
possibly until the new two-cent cards
annear. They have on hands some
of the international two-cent post
cards, which have been used principal
ly by Japanese for writing to their
own country. These international
cards may, of course, be used for cor
respondence to be sent anywhere in
the Islands or Slates, or anywhere in
the postal union. The quantities
held on Maui are not large, however,
and unless the new supply arrives
soon they may be exhausted.
Under an act of the last Legislature,
Governor I'inkham has appointed the
members of the delinquent tax com
missions of the various islands, the
duties of which are to examne delin
quent tax accounts and determne up
on the best method of collecting them.
The commission appointed for Maui
consists of the following: J. H. Ku
newa, Geo. Weight and J. N. K. Keola.
Correction Of List
Taxes Now Due
In the writeup of the bazaar of the
Church of the Good Shepherd in last
issue, a typographical slip caused sev
eral regrettable errors. For instance,
the list of ladies in the children's
stall should have read: Mrs. H. D.
Sloggett, chairman; Miss Lucy Rich
ardson and Miss K. Miller. Fans, etc.,
which was oninntted, should have
read: Mrs. W. Chillingworth, chairman-;
Miss L. Weight.
Molokai Breaks Record
Deputy Tax Assessor Ambrose re
turned Wednesday morning to Lahai
na from the island of Molokai and re
ports that he colb'cted more money
for dog taxes than at any period in
the history of that island.
The second payment of property
and income taxes for the year 1517
is now due and will fall delinquent
on the 13th.
Tax collectors are not required to
send out bills nor follow up collec
tions. This work is done merely as
a matter of courtesy, and the non-receipt
of bills or failure of the collec
tor to call are not excuses. It is the
intention of the department to "land
on' those not having paid before the
close of business on the 15th.

"No, sir," answered the funny man,

Saving Fats For Our Allies
The price of butter confines its use
to those articles of food fresh vege
tables and th' like where butter pure
tnd simple seems to be necessary,
nd to its place on the table. Else
where we may "substitute," and with
perfect success as to results.
How? I!y saving, clarifying and ap
plying to its proper use every particle
of the fat that is a by-product in all
our kitchens. Observe that I say "to
it proper use." We couldn't "shorten"
a choice cake or cooky with sausage
fat; and it would be unnecessary to
use delicate chicken fat in highly
spiced gingerbread. You may reverse
the process with entire success. The
following suggestions tell something
of the "how" and the "where."
When cleaning fowls wo always find
"leaves" of fat inside, which must be
removed. Put this in a tin in the oven
and melt slowly, being sure that It
doesn't burn. Strain and store for
use. When boiling fowls pour off the
broth, in which you have allowed
them first to cool, into a pitcher and
set it in the cellar, and when cool, in
i he ice chest. This particular fat is
very soft and cannot easily be removed
in a cake like other kinds unless it
is very cold; thou it stiffens. Scrape
off any sediment at the bottom, rinse
off thoroughly in cold water, melt and
As to containers for this and other
fats I use the larger size of dried
beef and bacon tumblers, with their
covers. In this way the different fats
may easily be distinguished and re
quire only a small place in your pan
try. Neat labels may be kept on each
lum'jler if wished .though to the prac
ticed eye this is not necessary, the
fats being of different color, consist
ency and odor.
Different households will have dif
ferent "fat" problems, as to amounts
and kinds accumulated. Sometimes
only enough is ncquired to be easily
used in cookery and deep frying. In
other kitchens accumulations are
larger and the surplus may be used
in making soap. In general, the more
delicate fats are saved and prepared
to use in cooking; and the stronger
ones mutton, ham, and the like for
In making all soup slocks and in
boiling corned beef, remnants of cook
ed beef, fresh pork, and the like, a
varying amount of fat will always rise
to the top when the broth is cold,
This fat is much harder than chicken
fat and the cakes of it are very easily
removed. Break it up slightly, put
il in a strainer and rinse thoroughly
under the cold-water faucet. This is
very important, helping to make the
finished product sweeter and pure.
Shake off all superfluous water possi
ble, melt the fat, and strain slowly in
to your tumblers, which have been
previously warmed to avoid breakage.
Water Takes Out The Flavors
The process is different in prepar
ing the fat remnants from roasts and
boiled meats. These should be run
through the meat chopper gristle
and meat first removed and set In
the ovenMo "try out" slowly. Never
allow the fat to acquire the least
burned taste; it should be white and
pure. Strain off carefully and set
Some people prefer to use a double
boiler for rendering fat. Itun it
through the moat chopper as above,
put in the inside container and cook
slowly until the fat Is melted out,
then strain it off. Press out every
. ...... ;
drop. If any odor from onion or other ,
vegetables remains, as in the case of ,
fat from soup stocks, spiced beef, and
the like, return the fat when cool to
the double boiler with the same
mount of cold water, nnd heat to
gether. Pour out all to cool and re
move the cake. The water will have
absorbed much of the odor; melt again
and strain away.
If you have a large amount of fat
scraps at any one time, as from the
end of a ham; remnants of a particu
larly fat roast or the like "try it out by
itself." If, however, this product ac
cumulates slowly, as from the ends of
steak and the excess from pieces of
corned beef, save your bits, however
small, in a vessel devoted to this pur
pose and kept in a cool place, and
once a week run all through the meat
chopper and proceed as above. Bacon,
sausage and ham fats should of
course be kept separate; and mutton
and lamb fa'ts should not bo mixed
with others. If you have not as much
of the more delicate fats as can ad
vantageously be used In cooking ham
and mutton fat, ground together and
rendered, make a more mildly flavor
product than either prepared separate
ly. Also, mutton fat may be improved
as to flavor and odor, so that it may
be used, by grinding and? melting in
the double boiler with sour milk in
the proportion of two pounds to one
cupful of sour milk.
Chicken fat may be employed in
making almost any delicate cake or
cookies, where the recipe calls for
butter. It makes particularly nice
baking-powder biscuit. When using
this or other fats do not forget to al
low an extra amount of salt. Beef
and fresh pork fats may be used for
shortening muffins, plain pastry, plain
cake, and the like, and the surplus
mav be added to the fat kettle for
frying. Part lard should here be used.
Strain off carefully each time into a
large lard pail. Scrape the sediment
off the bottom before using again.
Occasionally clarify by cooking in it
a few slices of raw potato.
Ham, bacon and sausage fats are
all nice for frying or sauteing potato
Sausage fat is particularly nice for
shortening ginger-bread and ginger
snaps. Bacon fat may be used, melt
ed, as a substitute for butter in white
sauces used for the purposes in which
the bacon flavor would be an addi
tion. Country Gentleman.
