McBryde 3, Llhue 0.
The McBryde Llhuo gamo at Ll
hue, altho played under protest by
Llhue, was for 9 innings, undoubtedly
the greatest exhibition ot ball over
played on the local diamond. For nine
fast innings not a scoro was chalked
for either side, thuogh Prioste lost the
game for Llhuo in the seventh frame
when ho ran by the plate without
touching it. Prioste is not entirely
to blame for this as his big feet got
him to going sldewiso and ho just
counldn't make 'cm tag the plate as ho
The fielding was almost porfect
throughout the regular innings, but
in McBrydes half of the tenth Llhuo
made three costly orrors which set

AT LHUE MILL
The first requirement ot an up-to-date,
modern sugar mill is a thorough
ly equipped shop where all kinds of
ropairs can bo wrought, from a cane
carrier bolt to a broken roller.
Llhuo plantation is installing such
a shop, which will put It in line with
the very best equipped mills on the
Tho shop building will be continu
ous with tho crushing plant, and Im
mediately behind it, and will bo 12G ft.
by 5G ft., with plenty ot room over
head, and with an electric traveling
crane that will travel tho whole dis
tance over crusher plant and shop.
This will be a wonderful convenience
for tho quick and economical dispatch
of work, as it will be able to pick up
any article from a mill cap to a mill
roller, and dolivor it at any point in
tho whole area, about as soon as a boy
would carry a monkey wrench there.
This will be among tho largest and
finest electric cranes on tho Islands.
The shop will contain several lathes
of different sizes one of them with a
swing of 48 Inches, heavy enough to
handle mill rollers and other heavy
work; a 4S inch open side planer, a
G ft radial drill, a 24 inch mortou grind
er, a No. G Cincinnati milling machine,
hydraulic press, etc. All tho above
machines will be individually motor
In connection with the shop there
will bo a locomotive repair pit, with
drop floor to allow of easy removal of
driving wheels saving much time and
trouble over tho old method of jacking
and blocking up tho engines.
In the milling plant it has been
found that the crusher is unequal to
the standards of the rest of the mill.
It will bo discarded and a larger one
with 34 x 7S rolls installed in its place.
Steel caps will be installed on No. 2,
3 and 4 mills, with hydraulic jacks.
In tho boiling house two new hori
zontal return tubular boilers, 7 ft x 20
ft. will bo added. The capacity of the
evaporators will be increased by the
addition of two new cells of 4000 foot
evaporating surface each.
Additional cane storage will be pro
vided by carrying tho tracks farther
up the valley, so that 300 cars can be
stored it need be, and the tracks will
be more conveniently arranged.
These mill improvements have been
mainly designed and aro being carried
out by O. It. Olson, chief engineer, who
has demonstrated his ability and offi
cioncy by long experience in mill con
struction and management.
