Dr. John Holland submitted to the Board of Trade, at the meeting
Friday afternoon, samples of banana spirits, or alcohol, extracted from
Hilo bananas, together with a report of Edward C. Shorey, Chemist of
the United States Hawaii Experiment Station at Honolulu. The report
shows the perfect feasibility of transforming bananas into high-proof
alcohol. The sample furnished to Dr. Holland w.ts 90'X alcohol, which
is the usual strength of commercial alcohol. Iu appearance it is as clear
as crystal and has a faint aroma of the banana. It is shown that a sixty
pound bunch of bananas, when converted into alcohol, will make one
gallon of proof spirits The bananas used were the Chinese variety, the
fruit being macerated to form the pulp, from which, after fermentation,
the spirits were distilled. The waste product, after distillation, forms an
excellent feed for pigs, says Mr. Shorey.
bpints distilled from bananas would make most excellent brpndy,
which ordinarily contains .17 of alcohol. Whiskcv is usually turned
out of the distillery at no to 130 proof, or an equivalent to 55J0 to
65 alcohol. Subsequently it is diluted by rectifiers and sold at 90 to
95 proof. Commercial alcohol is scld at a strength of 90 to 95 "u,
or 50 proof spirit.
Professor Shorey s report in part is as follows:
"In the matter of the amount of alcohol to be obtained from bananas
by fermentation and distillation, I beg to report as follows:
"Analysis ot average well-ripened bananas without skin gave the fol
lowing figures: 1
"Water, 75. 83: ash, .74: protein, 1.25: fat, .21; fiber, 1.98: reduc
ing or fermentable sugar, 1.3S; No cane sugar' present.
"The skins make about 250 of weight of bananas, so that if the
fermentable sugar is calculated to the weight of the whole fruit it will be
io.35?. The theoretical yield of sugar on fermentation is approxi
mately 50 nu of alcohol by weight. Then 100 pounds of bananas of this
composition should give 5.17 pounds absolute alcohol, or eight-tenths of
a gallon, equivalent to 1.6 proof gallon of proof spirit, or 1 gallon of
proof spirit from 62.5 pounds of banaras.
"There is considerable variation in the content of fermentable sugar,
according to the condition, stage of ripeness, etc., but I think the above
may be taken as an average theoretical yield. The first lot of bananas
received from you were badly infected with a fungus (gleosporium sp.),
causing ripe rot, and in consequence did not become well ripened. Of
this lot a number of small lots were ucd in making preliminary tests to
determine the best method of treatment, ind then these lots were worked
up, with results as follows:
"Lot 1. 5.87 lbs. Single extraction. Fermentation, 60 hours. Yield,
.179 qt. proof spirit, or 1 gal. proof spirit from 131.x lbs.
"Lot 2. 19.39 lbs. Double extraction. Fermentation, 60 hours.
Yield, 1.06 qt. proof spirit, or 1 gal. proof spirit from 73.17 lbs.
"Lot 3. 25.79 lbs. Double extraction. Fermentation, 70 hours.
Yield, 1.57 qt. proof spirit, or 1 gal. proof spirit for 65.6 lbs.
"Lot 4. Well-ripened Honolulu batfjyias bought in market. 15 lbs.
Double extraction. Fei mentation, honours. Yield, 1.1 qt. proof spirit,
or 1 gal. proof spirit from 54.5 lbs.
"Lot 5. Hilo bananas. 16.7 lbs. Double extraction, bermenta
tion, 78 hours. Yield, 1.5 qt. proof spirit, or 1 gal. proof spirit from
lhere is a movement on foot to ascertain the cost of a plant for distil
ling bananas into commercial alcohol for use in the manufacture of
brandy and high-proof whiskey. When these figures are received a
company will be organized to build such a plant. By this means it is
expected that large quantities of bananas which are not now marketable
because of size or condition of ripeness may be utilized to advantage and
Keolanui Passes on the Problem.
Growing out of the popular demand, as evidenced by the scores of pe
titions numerously signed in behalf of Japanese horseshocrs, who desired
to ply their trade in and throughout the county, Sheriff Keolanui has
passed the problem up to Treasurer Campbell. In the meantime, being
satisfied that several of the Japanese candidates for licenses were quali
fied sufficiently to shoe a horse, even though they may not be metallur
gists, he has given four Japanese temporary permits pending the receipt
of their licenses from Honolulu. Two other Japanese returned from
Honolulu having successfully passed the examination there. The Jap
anese having licenses are Nagahama, R. Enseki, Murokami, Tanaka
Kingoro, Ezuni, Omayo.
Sheriff Keolanui bases his action upon an opinion rendered by Deputy
Attorney Attli by his request and which is approved by County At
torney Chas. Williams. The opinion, in part, is as follows:
"The law does not point out how and in what manner and method you
are to "examine the applicant to determine whether he is a suitable per
son to carry on the trade of a horseshoer and farrier for hire." I hold
that you may attest on an application after being satisfied that the ap
plicant is a suitable person to carry on the said trade from your examin
ation of the applicant as to the time spent by the applicant in the trade,
whether he has spoiled any horses or not, his general reputation as a
horseshoer and otherwise, and such other facts that may help you to de
termine whether or not "the applicant is a suitable persou to carry on
the trade of a horseshoer and farrier for hire."
"The Territorial Treasurer and not you does the granting of the li
cense. All that you have to do is to look into, inquire, ascertain and be
satisfied yourself either from your own knowledge or from other reliable
person or sources that the applicant is a suitable person and to note such
fact on the application."
Under the heading of "Injustice of Examination of Horseshoers", the
Hilo Shimbuin has the following to say in a recent editorial:
"In an article appearing in the Honolulu Shimbun, it is stated that
the injustice against the horseshoers is a subject which involves the en
tire Japanese community. From the latest report about Hilo, we have
Heard about more injustice, and our countrymen who are bittdly nidiu
nant are now taking steps for redress.
"We heard a rumor at the police headquarters that officers had been
sent abroad to examine Japanese horseshoers, and ordered them to re
port to the Portuguese stable at Ililo to pass the required examination.
The three examiners ordered the Japanese to make a pair of new shoes
of wrought iron and put them on the animal's feet. They all followed
the directions, doing the best they knew how. In case of a little mistake
or defect in the shoe, they were not passed. Afterwards they were all
refused licenses and orders were given if anybody attempts to shoe a
horse without a license, lie is liable to pay a fine of $50.
"Not one of the applicants were passed in the district of Hilo or Piina--about
twelve or thirteen Japanese, who have not been allowed from that
day to put 011 a single shoe. These people have lost their occupation
and as a consequence are in great trouble. An expert opinion says the
wrought iron cannot be heated twice, and that it is impossible to make
shoes from this kind of iron 1 qual to the ready made shoes imported
from the mainland. I guess it is beyond human power to make such a
horseshoe, but those examiners are trying to drive out the Japanese
horseshoers by such an unjust examination."
