HONOLULU' STAR-BULLETIN, THURSDAY, XOVfofBER 1, 1917.
TWO !- MOTIVE POWER IS DISCUSSED BY ENGINEERS Electrification of Sugar. Mills Favored By Hawaii Tech- . nical Experts "Electrification" and "The Stand ardization of Mill Equipment" were the subjects under discission by the mill engineers at their meeting in the Library of Hawaii this morning. The chemists had an off day and will not hold a regular meeting until tomorrow morning.' This afternoon, however; the chemists And engineers assem bled in the shops of the Honolulu Iron works and witnessed a demonstration oT a machine to produce illumination Kao and fuel gas from as,oline. Fol lowing this demonstration the dele gates made a trip across the harbor to inspect the coaling depot of the Inter Island eonipanyv ' It. ll Hind acted as chairman at the meeting this morning. Robert Hughes read the paper on the subject of "Elec, tr'ification." The report pointed out that the application of electricity to all forms of power has long since passed the experimental stage, and the larger ihe scale on which fclecirical en ergy .was generated, the greater the economy. Among the many advan tages derived from the electrification of mill machinery axe: Increased production,- decreased operating ex pens es, decreased maintenance charges, greater east of .operation, in creased reliability. There are now twenty sugar mills throughout the .world that arc com pletely electrified, and in every one immediate results in steam economy-, lower maintenance and labor costs and greater reliability of service were no ticed. The nearest approach to a completely electrified plant in the islands is that of the Hawaiian Commercial and Su gar Co. Their central station con sists of two 750 "kilowatt 3G00 R. ,P. M., 4Su volt, 3 phase, 60-cycIe single stage noncondensing Turgo generators. The report of the committee urged that electrification of mill .motive power be accomplished as soon as 'pos sible. At 8 o'clock this evening both chem ists and engineers ffUl meet in the li brary to attend an illustrated lecture on 'Dry Rot in Timber" by'B. Frank lin Howland. Tomorrow morning a combined meeting of the two societies will be held, and "Curing and Market ing" will be discussed. ' , The annual meeting of the engineers will be held at 6:30 tomorrow evening, when the elections will be held, fol lowed by a combined banquet of the two societies, which will end the con vention. BELAYS CLEANING OF RESERVOIRS LACK OF WATER Unless there are some heavy rains pretty soon there is likely to be a Teal shortage of. water in Nuuanu valley. The work on No. 3 reservoir, which would have been .completed this week, has been delayed due to lack of water necessary for sluicing purposes. All the dry deposit itf the upper tank has been scooped out and carried away in wheelbarrows, but in the lower tank, where the deposits are too wet lor the scraper to. be used.- sluicing is employed to clean the tank. About 14 feet of .water now stands in No. 4. practically none having been used from that reservoir this week to product power Sot lighting purposes, there being a brilliant moon, conse quently little artificial street lighting '. necessary. If the moon had not been on the job it is cj.uite probable many of the streets that owe their lighting power to water from this reservoir would have been dark. Reservoir No. 2 is now ready for water. -end needs "it having only about nine feet in. the tank. Superintendent Kirchhoff of ' the water works department is of the opin ion that the city and county has not sufficient funds on hand just now to consider the installation of additional artesian wells, unless a bond issue could be called to help out with the expense.. He thinks, too, that proper filtration can be secured fcr the water in the Nuuanu reservoirs, an1 can pro duce statistics' to show that filtered water, by plans that, could be used here, has proved most satisfactory-in many of the mainland cities, and that the typhoid fevenrecord in such cities has been materially cut down since the installation of such filtration plants. He agrees, however, that where artesian water can be obtained it is .better to have it MAY BE FIRST ONE TO PAY WAR TAXES : " 0NJSTEAMER FARE J. A. M.

Unraveling a series of mysterious crimes and securing a full confession from the criminal, Detective Captain McDuffie and Lieut. J. L. Ballard, 25th Infantry, yesterday, afternoon and last evening fastened the blame for the crimes on one man, Private ACie Tay lor, Company I, 25th Infantry. - Taylor's confession, made to Lieut. Ballard after he saw the game was up, makes it certain that the series of crimes were his work and his alone. It also absolves other colored soldiers from any guilt and is regarded as much a vindication of them as a coh victio of the real criminal. Taylor by his own admissions is the man who has been terrorizing resi dents in the Kakaako-Ala Moana dis trict since October 22. I When a Japanese woman, (lighting with the colored soldier in her home, seized in her struggles a sharpshoot er's medal that he wore and tore it loose the chain of evidence against him began to form. McDuffie, work ing from pin scratches on the back of the medal and communicating with army authorities, began tracing the badge. Meantime Lieut. Ballard was also working, at the instance of the Hawaiian department. It was found that the" medal had been lost at a ball game by the origi nal owner, had passed through anothei man's hands and again been lost, and that Taylor had picked it up. Unrav cling this, the authorities also found that Taylor had stolen a watch from his tent mate and traded it at the Fi delity Loan Office, McDuffie Teports, in October for a revolver, which, re volver he used in his raids. These raids included tne shooting, of a Hawaiian woman through her door, the beating up of the Japanese woman and the robbery of a Chinese store, all in the district around Kakaako, Ala Moana road, and Hobron lane, and all soon after he got the revolver. Taylor declares that he has no ac complices. Most of the jewelry stolen in the raid on the Chinese store has been recovered, about $125 worth. . The man is being turned over to-the military authorities and is said to be in for a heavy sentence. Capt. McDuffie expresses apprecia tion over the full cooperation and help ful assistance of the army, and says tnat Lieut. Ballard was largely re sponsible for the success Of their mri. tual detective efforts.

St. Louis Globe Demo- BIRD POACHING UNCOVERED AT ' JOHNSON ISL' Bonfire Remains indicate at Least .10,00(3 Carcasses Have Been Destroyed ' - : . . r Down yon. Johnson island, the pro--posed setting for a sinister drama which, had it been ' enacted might have led to a rebellion in India financ ed by 'German, gold,, the Idqai naval lntelligeTice department has "discover ed evidence of bird poachers, and a closer watch is to be kept on the place to more thoroughly" protect bird life- there. ? Johnson island, which is about 800 miles southwest of Honolulu, is where the Maverick and the Annie Larson were to have met to transfer a cargo of arms, ammunition and supplies for. pro-Germans and 'others who were at tempting to foment a rebellion iff In dia and thereby hinder the military operations of England against Ger many. But the steamers never met there, and that is another story. On the island, within the last 30 days, were found the remains of eight bonfires on the each, the rings of ashes about 10 feet in diameter. In each pile the bird bones were at least 5 inches high. It is estimated that the remains of at least 1000 birds were destroyed in each fire, which means that about 10,000 birds were destroyed. The only clue thus far discovered is a signboard bearing the words "Kami Fuku iMaru, March, 1915," and underneath it aretwo names in Japa nese characters. As far as is known, the boat in question does not belong at Honolulu. Johnson island is a part of the Ha waiian group, is not in the bird reser vation and has not been visited for some time by patrols. Those who made the recent investigation caught 219 sharks in four days, each shark meas uring about 9 feet in length.. ILLSi - Summarizing the " Second Liberty Loan Campaign here, L.
