Honolulu, Jan. One of the
mo'it starting industrial changes
that took place in Honolulu dtiirug
the year 1903 was the introduction
of fuel oil into the port as a com
mercial commodity. The big oil
tank village at Iwilel now covers a
number of acres, is magnificently
equipped for handling the new fuel,
and the oil tanks store a great
quantity of oil. The oil is being
used on Oahu plantations, in sta
tionary engine plants, and on some
of the steamers in the trade be
tween Honolulu and the mainland.
The writer witnessed the "coaling"
of the steamer Alameda yesterday
and the value of the change from
coal to oil as a fuel for steamers
was forcibly brought home to him.
In spite of. the fact that the Al
ameda was laid up during a portion
of last year it is stated that the net
earniiiES of the vessel during the
year amounted to $200,000, al
though these figures are not official
and her successful year's work has
been brought about in some measure
during the year by the use of fuel
oil instead of coal.
The Alameda had been shifted
from the Oceanic wharf to the Rail
way wharf. A force of stevedores
were busily engaged in running
hundreds of sacks of sugar into the
steamer's held from flat cars belong
ing to the Oahu Railway. And at
the same time it was stated that the
vessel was "coaling." There were
no rough-looking firemen around,
no cursing or use of foul language,
as is gercrally the case during the
time that a vessel is taking in hei
bunker stores for a voyage to the
coast. In fact the only evidence
that the vessel was taking in her

Manager George Baker, of the
Pacific Oil Transportation Co., Ltd.,
was standing in about five and a
half feet of dungarees beside a
massive hose that led from a ten-
inch pipe underneath the wharf
into the bowels of the steamer.
Baker said that he had about an
hour's work to attend to. During
that time the pumps on the steamer
and those at the oil tanks at Iwilei,
a half mile away, would force
through the pipe line, into the
steamer's oil tanks, four hundred
and fifty barrels of oil. There was
no soot or dust trom coal around,
everything was as clean as a whistle,
and on the deck of the steamer,
watching the work, stood Captain
Dowdell and his chief officer, dressed
in immaculate white uniforms just
as if they were out for a field day
when in reality they were watching
the steamer "coal."
And this is where the economy
comes in. In place of the four
hundred and fifty barrels of oil the
steamer would have had to take, if
she used coal, about one hundred and
fifty tons. At present prices, in
round numbers, the coal would
have cost the steamship company
about $6.50 a ton. In addition to

Deception is the rat trap that

Beware of the base deceiver, and
be careful that you don't stumble

the late Mr. Lecky should meet an

was intended that they should ex
