NEW INDUSTRIAL POSSIBILITIES.
Thr free alcohol bill has been
signed by the President. This bill
is esteemed to be the most impor-
tant, excepting the rate bill, that
has been under consideration by
congress during this session. The
beneficial industrial consequences of
the passage of the bill are beyond
reckoning. As furnishing the peo
ple a substitue for petroleum pro
ducts for heating, lighting and mo
tive power purposes, the bill en
countered Standard Oil opposition
in the Senate. Its defeat being
impracticable in the face of a uni
versal demand for its passage, it
was allowed to become a law by
that body; to beconio effective Jan.
1, 1907, instead ot turcc montlis
from date of passage as the House
bill had it.
The greater use of this new
agency, alcohol, it is conceded
means an important development
Secretary Wilson, it is stated, in
addressing the ways and means
committee of the House, asserted
that free deuaturized alcohol means
a new and economical fuel and a
new source of light and power.
He further asserted that it means a
new source of profit to the farmer.
As to both of these assertions, they
were amply reinforced by the testi
mony of scientists, expert mechanics
and business men. It costs from
six to fifteen cents a gallon to manu
facture denaturized alcohol. An
acre of Indian corn, with a yield of
fifty bushels, would make 310 gal
lons. An acre of potatoes, with a
yield of 300 bushels, would produce
245 gallons, while certain varieties
of potatoes, it is claimed, will pro
duce 500 gallons from a similar
area. Sugar beets will yield more
alcohol than cither corn or potatoes
As to utility, an alcohol lamp
will give as good light, without the
annoyance of smoke and for a lon
ger time as compared with an oil
lamp with like quantities of alcohol
and kerosene. The successful use
of alcohol in stationary engines has
long since been established, both
' abroad and in this country. It has
done excellent service in furnish
ing power for automobiles and motor-boats.
In Germany alone the mechani
cal utility of denaturized alcohol is
so far recognized that it furnishes
power for more that 6000 engines,
many of which perform the heavi
est kind of work. In all of this
service the use of alcohol requires
no change in machinery where oil
or gasoline has formerly been used.
The possibilities of the manu
facture of alcohol from the banana
bring the passage of this bill home
to us. No country ( can produce
corn, potatoes or sugar beets for
the purpose of alcohol manufacture,
in competition with the banana

The recitation of selections from

took part. Several pretty songs and

by Ruth Stacker, gave a pleasing
variety to the program. Isabel
Kennedy in costume made a very
sweet little "Yellow Dandelion."
Flag-day sentiments and another
patriotic recitation introduced a
beautiful flag drill given by the
young children. "The Red White

brought the program to a close.

HAS HKUUN OPERATIONS.
Koa Lnmlicr Company SawhiR Ships
to San Frnuelsco. '
The Hawaiian Mnhogony Com
pany has already begun operations.
On Monday sawing began on a
shipment of koa lumber to be sent
to San Francisco by the steamer
Enterprise. The mill at the shops
of the Hilo Railroad Co. is to be
used for the purpose of getting out
the lumber till a mill can be got in
operation in the forest, a space of
several months at least, probably.
This mill is to be located in tho
body of timber near the Volcano
I House. The mill at the railroad
shops has a capacity of from two
te three thousand feet a day, and
will be kept in operation continu
ously, the output being shipped to
San Francisco by the Matson steam
ers. J. Gamalielsou, living six miles
up on the Kaumana road, will furn
ish the logs, from timber cut several
years ago, delivering the same to
the Hilo Railroad at Hilo for trans
portation to the mill.
A good demand for this lumber
has arisen in San Francisco already
for finishing work on buildings
there, and Mr. Richley, who has
taken a hand in the promotion of
the industry, states that the super
vising architect of the proposed Los
Angeles post office is to specify it
for use in the finishing of that build
ing. It is expected that the incorpora
tion papers filed with the territorial
officials a couple of weeks ago, will
be returned approved by the latter
part of the week, when officers of
the company will be elected.
Messrs. Robert W. Shingle, of Ho
nolulu, and E. H. Cant, chief en
gineer for the Onomea Sugar Co.',
went to the Volcano Saturday after
noon on business connected with
The California Party.
The newspaper party of California young
ladies returned to Honolulu Friday.
They put in what little time was allowed
them to visit the volcano in seeing Uie
crater and objects of interest about the
hotel, and expressed regret that their
stay there had to be so short. The hotel
management entertained the party in
its usual royal manner. The party con
sisted of Mr. and Mrs. B. P. Moore, of
San Bernardino, chaperones. Miss Grace
E. Smith, of Ontario, Miss Maud B. Med-
lin, of Needles, and Miss Jean Johnson,
of San Bernardino.
