Makawell 11, Llhue 8.
It will be remembered that the meat
lug between Makawell and Llhue at
Makawell on August 1st, the game was
notable mostly for the way In which
Llhuo lit onto Furtado and hammered
him out o the box well, Makawell re
turned the compliment last Sunday In
an cloven Inning game, aud the way
they landed ' on Okuda for hits was
Whether Okuda had not recovered
from his gruelling gamo of sixteen In
nings at Kapaa Sunday beforo last or
whether he just had a day off Is not
known, but ho. certainly did not show
his usual excellent form last Sunday.
Furtado, although he bcaned
three men and walked two or three,
pitched a very good game and handed
his team a well deserved victory.
The neat and workmanlike manner
in which nurgess at third for Maka
well, played his position was a joy to
see. Time after time hot grounders
came his way, and invariably ho
scooped them in and got his man at
first with a- faultless throw.
The outfield of both teams did ex
cellent work, although the Lihue boys
let several long Hies get behind them
by playing in too close for the hard
Of tho Lihues, Prloste, at first was
the bright and particular star. There
was nothing flashy about his game,
but he was on the job every minute
and handled everything that came his
way with neatness aud despatch.
Makawell started tho game off by
annexing two runs in the first of tho
first. Llhuo came up and tied the
score, shut tho visitors out in tho sec
ond, and scored three more runs in
their time up.
Neither team scored in the third,
though Tank slammed out a three bag
ger, but ho died right there.
In tho fourth Pedro, of tho Macs,
heaved the pill for three and was
brought in by a timely hit by Pacheco.
Lihue got four straight goose eggs,
but got Mltsu homo in the seventh.
Makawell came up In tho fifth and
shattered tho hopes of the homo fans
by piling up threo with two more in
Okuda was yanked in the eighth and
Perreira taken from center and placed
on the mound. He disposed of the
visitors in one, two, three order. This
encouraged the home team and they
went in to bat belioving that the old
lucky eighth was working.
Doi got a single and was adyanced
by Perreira, who made first on a
chance. Tai flow out at flrst and Pri
osto fouled to third. Then Okuda
came up and slammed a swift ground
er down the flrst base lino, away into
the field for a threo bagger, bringing
in Doi and Perreira, and tieing the
score at eight-all.
Grounders to second and third and
a long fly to center retired the Macs
in tho ninth. Lihuo got men on bases,
but a pretty double and a fly to center
Sent the game into the extra innings.
In the tenth both sides wont out
with threo men up.
With Makawell up in tho eleventh,
everything looked hopeful for Lihue
when Burgess flew out to center and
Hamada to flrst. Hut Ahneo went flrst
on a wild pitch and stole second, aud
Kamaka hit for a double, scoring Ah
nee. Akita singled and so did Pedro,
bringing in Kamaka and Akila. Pa
checo flew out to center.
This spilled tho beans for Llhue, but
thoy mado a desperate effort, with
Mitsu hitting a doublo, Tlxiera getting
a walk and Carvalho getting flrst on
a chance, but Tank fouled out to catch
er, Mitsu was forced out and Doi
grounded to second.
Chillingworth and Branch umpired.
McBryde 5, Kealla 4
' Another gamo that went into the
oxtra innings was the McBryde-Makee
gamo at Eleele. It took twelve Innings
to argue this matter out, but McBryde
finally had tho last word. A. Q. Marc
allino umpired tho gamo, which is
protested by Makeo on tho ground
that Tillio is not a bona fide resident.
NEXT SUNDAY'S GAMES
Next Sunday's games will bo: Mc
Brydo vs. Makawell at Eleele; Llhuo
vs. Kilauea at Lihuo.

OF LIHUE MILL
The trend of sugar factories, like all
other factories, Is toward the larger
use of electric power. Tho Llhue mill
is so well satisfied with their experi
ments in this direction that they are
taking stops that will ultimately moan
tho pretty thorough electrification of
tho whole factory.
In order to do this they will suppll
mcnt the hydro-electric plant at Wai-
ahl by a steam generating plant at tho
mill. They now havo under way a
750 kilowatt plant equivalent to 1000
horsepower tho motive power of
which will be a steam turbine.
Tho current will bo carried from the
generating station into tho mill by a
tension of 440 volts. For tho trans
mission of this' current a solid copper
wire ono inch and a half in diameter
will bo required, or with insulation,
Tho hydro electric current from tho
mountains- Is stepped down to this
same voltage by the mill transformers,
so that the two currents can be run
ibgcJther synchronously, supplementing
each other as needed. In tho same
way tho steam-generated current can
be "stepped up" to the level of the
current on tho general line, in use
throughout tho community, so that
both streams of current will be avail
able for this use, which will be a great
safeguard against current failure he
cause of trouble in the mountains or
along the transmission line.
The power will be distributed
throughout the mill to drive pumps,
centrifugals, weighing and bagging ma
clriftes, the crusher, all the various
machines in tho new shop, etc. Each
individual machine will have its own
motor, thus eliminating a tangle of
shafting, bolts, etc., and obviating tho
necessity for running a lot of inter
mediate machinery that is not neces
This electrification of the Llhue mill
will place It in tho front ranks of mod
ern efficient mills.
In addition to this large use In tho
mill, the railway system will be grad
ually electrified by using storage bat
tery locomotives which can be supplied
with power at central charging stat
ions. By this means a vofy largo coal
bill will bo cut down.
Tho concrete building which will
house the now plant Is now well under
This now development is in chargo
bf Mr. J. II. Hall, the electrical super
Intendcnt, who is a thoroughly olficient
lind progressive man in his line.

be a surprise that it will startle the
