There was a pretty fair gathering
at Hie Makiki recreation grounds on
Saturday last, on the occasion of
the match between the Honolulu
and the Hawaii clubs. Only a two
tliirds game was played, six innings
being more than enough for the
audience and a healthful sufilciency
for the players. It was not expected
that the Hawaii would win, but few,
probably, expected to see it beaten
by 20 runs. Something less than a
million errors were credited to the
losing club, and a good many to tho
winning one. The Honolulu team
was: Wodchouse, Oat, Whitney,
Moore, Thurston, Low, Casllc,Pai ker
and G. Wilder. The Hawaii : Kaia,
Rosa, Fredenburjr, Kauai, David,
Bright, Kaaukai, Desha and Morton.
For the Honolulu Wo.dehouse scored
in the 1st, 5th and (itli innings; Oat,
the same; Whitney, 1st, 3rd and
Gth; Moore, 2nd, 3rd, 5th and Gth ;
Thurston, the same ; Low, 1st, 3rd,
5th and Gth; Castle, 1st, 5th and
Gth ; Parker, 1st and 5th ; Wilder,
3rd and Gth, being put out between
bases 1st, 4th and 5th. For the
Hawaii Kaia scored in tho 1st ; Jos.
Rosa, 1st and 2nd, being left on
bases 3rd and 5lh ; Fredcnburg, 1st
and 2nd; Bright, 3rd; Desha, 2nd
and 3rd. This was Rosa's first game
in the Hawaii's firs'; nine, and lie
proved a valuable accession, making
his base every time he took
the bat and running like a deer.
Good for the Bulletin typo! Fol
lowing is the score by innings:
1 i 2 I 3 I -1 I 5 I 0
Honolulu 0 12 15 10
Hawaii 3 3 2 0
Mr. Chas. Wilder acted as um
pire, making very equitable deci
sions, and Mr. J. Winter, captain of
the Benedict club, kept the score
with a sharp lookout on the points
of the game.
Few persons are aware of the
magnitude of the United States Pa
tent Olllce and to what extent the
procuring of the patents, the pre
paration of drawings, models and
specifications illustrating the pro
duct of inventive genius has become
a business. Nor do people have
any but a vague idea of how busily
the bee of inventive genius is ever
buzzing in the bonnets of the masses.
Every man nowadays is an inventor.
He may not procure any patents,
and doesn't often realize profit, but
there hardly lives a man or boy who
lias not at some time thought of
something original thnt he believes
nobody else ever thought of, and if
he could only work it out just right,
or get somebody with some money
to "tako hold of it" it would result
iu a "big thing" for all concerned.
True, the vast majority of amateur
inventors never get beyond this
stage. They are content to toy
with the child of their genius for a
while and then drop it. Very many
pursue the idea far enough to con
sult a patent lawyer, and if they are
not confronted then with tho dis
couraging information that there are
only about a dozen applications of
the same idea already on file in
Washington they are apt to be so
informed the moment they approach
the threshold of tho Patent Olllce,
for it is a very important duty of the
Patent Ollice.to sit on the neck of
aspiring ambition m just this brut n 1
Each year is becoming more diffi
cult for inventive ' talent, no matter
how original, to devise something
entirely now. To the non-inventive
mind, glancing over the domain of
mechanics, it would seem as if the
field for invention had about been
exhausted. Every human need
seems to have been supplied. The
farmer has about all the agricul
tural machinery that lie can find
money to pay for or htorage room to
put it iu. His good wife has her
kitchen so full of all kinds of knick
knacks from automatic, churns to
apple-corers that bho can Hud no
room to stow the product of her
labor. The mechanic has so many
new machines brought to his shop
that lie begins to forget how to use
his hands. Tho merchant, the
banker, the professional man, tho
housekeeper, the railroad operator
all find that each year sn adds to his
stock of labor-saving adjuncts that
ho wonders wliero it is possible for
inventive genius to strike him next.
Yet tho limit is as fur, off us ever.
So long as now industries spring up
bo long will new fields be open. One
invention paves tho way for a score
of new ones j one broad and newly
discovered principle of mechanics is
soon multiplied into a dozen nar
rower ones, each in turn leading to
its dozen or so more of inventions,
all guarded at every point, by Hie
protecting patent. Thus it is but
ten years ago that the first telephone
patent was issued. Since that time
there have been more than one
thoiitnnd Amciitan patents and half
as many foreign patents granted for
improvements relating to tele
phones. There are upward of -100,000
registered American patents, rang
ing in importance from Morse's tele
graph system to the newest clamp
for fastening trouscr buttons. Each
year the work of the Patent Olllce
bus become so increased, the multi
tude of researches to be made so
great, and the time consumed so
wasteful of man's allotted 3pan that
the inventor, no matter how novel
or meritorious his invention may be,
is often compelled to lose years of
opportunity to turn his discovery to
account before he can get his pa
tent. The Jlcrahl representative, who
the other day, conversed with a gen
tleman thoroughly familiar with the
Patent Olllce and its workings, was
informed that sooner or later. Con
gress must reorganize the ollicc on
a new basis. At present the ma
chinery is too cumbersome, the ex
aminers too dilatory and often too
opionated and the field of research
too broad to be covered by present
methods. There is complaint, too,
of the present administration of the
olllce, and rumors are current which,
if even half-way reliable, should
invite the attention of a reform
administration. But it is not the
object of this article to go into that
branch of the subject.
One cause of complaint among
inventors is that too much time is
wasted on "inventions," so-called,
of the most absurd character, ami
too much patents of this kind are
issued. It is really remarkable how
many patents issue on trilling and
worthless things. The West is the
most prolific of this class of inven
tion. It was only a year or so ago
that a man down in Central Illinois
conceived the idea of keeping the
motli-lly out of bee-hives by an auto
matic process. These Hies are a
pest to bee-keepers in that they
operate wholly at night, and to find
some way of keeping them out of
the hives at night the Central Illi
noisan bent the whole weight of his
mighty intellect. At last he struck
it. He rigged up a series of little
doors on the hives, and these he
attached by means of levers to a
framework in his chicken-house.
He then attached his chicken-roost
to this. framework. When the chick
ens went to roost their weight oper
ated tho levers and closed the doors
of the beehives. When at daylight
they jumped from their perches the
levers fiow up and the bee doors
flew open. This nonsensical contri
vance actually went through the
ramifications of the department, and
the brilliant inventor got his pa
tent. Another genius -in Ohio determ
ined that there was one otlice that
should not be usurped by any other
Ohio man. He resolved to hold a
bond on the clerk of the weather
in any locality. Particularly did lie
mean to produce rain when it was
wanted, as, for instance, it is wanted
now. The device consisted of a tele
scoping tower, which was to run up
to a great height if necessary to
penetrate the clouds. When the
thing hud got up so that the moon
looked like a circus hoop, and Sat
urn, with his rings, like a Chicago
Council lighted by electricity, the
man at the base of the tower was to
light a fire. Of course, this was a
a gigantic chimney, and the idea
was to have the heated air penetrate
and disrupt the cloud strata and so
precipitate the downfall. This man,'
through the avcrnge stupidity and
lazily conducted and perfunctory
methods of the Patent Olllce, came
near getting a patent. It was one
of the much-abused women there,
who, reading the specification with
a little clearer human instinct, gave
a laugh, took it to her chief, and
asked if this was a new 'golden
stair." The chief scowled; she
pointed out the thing more clearly,
and then the chief patted her under
the chin and said she was a wise
and good girl, and should be re
warded. The examinations on the
patent golden stair ladder and rain
developed had already cost the
Government tho time of seven clerks
ami two examiners for a period of
seven weeks. The man did not get
liisr patent, but if the lady had
not looked at the subject from its
humorous standpoint, and not htcu
rewarded with a chuck under the
chin, this piece of nonsense might
have adopted tho Patent Olllce re
ports so dear to the bucolic heart.
Some time ago a man had been a
locomotive builder, and who knew
Hie power of centrifugal force, con
ceived the idea that leverage to
movable objects without periphery
action was a good deal stronger, and
could be more cheaply and power
fully applied. Ho gave this subject
a good deal of thought. His friends
began to think he was giving it too
in ii eh i for they saw syinptons of
mental extravagance that they did
not like. Ope day ho went out fish
ing, and iu lopking for frog bait he
came upon a swamp literally avp
wlth the butrachian melodies, lie
got out his scoop not, but in an iiir
stance stopped, and for the next
hour was lost iu M tidied watchful
ness of tho propulsory powor of the
frog. He fished no more tua,t d,ay.
He had solved the great problem!
In due time thete came tothePutcnt
Olllce plans of a lacomot'vo on a
new idea. The structure resembled
n large frog on wheels, with the pis
ton attached to the hind legs. These
latter were arranged to atraddlo the
track and rapidly kicked tho ground,
thus supplanting the power of old
fashioned traction as a motive force
in the moving of railway trains.
This man was in the insane usylum
befroe the examiners of the Patent
Olllce had determined whether his
was an "interference" with George
Stephenson's or not.
Another man iu Delaware hud
served in the artillery during the
war, and he conceived the idea of a
scattering gun. His purpose was to
disposo of a whole army at a single
discharge of the wonderful weapon.
The gun was pivoted to swing hori
zontally, and was intended to be
loaded with a few bushels of grape
or cnimistcr, and held iu opposition
to a strong spring resistance. His
plan was that the gun should be re
leased from this spring icsistance
and fired . it the samu instant, thus
scattering its contents from right to
left or vice versa, covering an arc
and commanding right and left
Uanksof 10,000 inftinliy.
The examiners of the Patent
Olllce regarded this as a wonderful
novelty and a most remarkable dis
covery, and under the law which re
quires that any inilitars discoveries
by private citizens shall be first
submitted to the War lepnrtmcnt,
befoic a patent can be issued, the
Patent Olllce submitted this to Mr.
Belknap, who was then Secretary.
Mr. Belknap wrote a neat little per
sonal reply of thanks but inclosed to
the Patent Conmiissoneis as his
only olllcial answer a copy of the
famous "John Pluunix" drawings
on the same subject. It will be re
membered thnt "Phoenix" (Lieute
nant Derby) invented a wonderful
mountain howitzer that was to be
used 011I3' on narrow tiail.s The
howitzer was to be strapped on a
back of a mule. The fun of the
thing was in the accompanying
drawings. One of these lepresonl
cd the mule climbing over the rocks
witli the gun on his back ; another
showed the mule's head and the
howitzer both pointed to the enemy
and the man ready to fire ; the third
revealed the mule as he appeared
under consciousness, as lie saw the
torch, that something was about to
happen, thu force demonstrated the
centrifugal ami scattering power of
the howitzer. The man had touched
off the gun and the mule was danc
ing in that circular waj' that mules
have when in doubt ho was boxing
the compass at a mile a minute.
Friend and enemy alike were scatter
ing behind tieea and rocks. Even
then the Patent Commissonors and
the examiners did not sec the joke.
They saw, however, that a prior in
ventor had been in Hie field, so they
threw out the claim of the Delaware
artillerist on the usual ground of
Once when Giant was President,
there came to the White House a
letter addressed to the President.
It was from a woman in Kansas,
who said she had read in -the papers
that Mr. Grant, belorc he went into
the army was poor, an that, though
he had won great fame, and was
then President, she did not doubt
that he was poor yet. She had a
scheme to make him rich. She had
invented a corn-slieller a machine
that not only shelled the com and scp
crated it from the cob but by the re
versal of a wheel at will it would
grind cob and corn together, nnd so
furnish a fine food for stock. The
lady inclosed somo roughly drawn
plans, and asked, if Mr. Grant"
would not get her a patent and ac
cept a half interest in the invention
to compensate him for his trouble.
But she added: "Mr Grant, I
must ask you not to say anything
about this to my husband, for he is
jealous, and it might get us both in
trouble." "Mr. Grant" did not
"say anything to the husband, but
h did good naturedly send tho
letter and its inclosures over to the
Patent office to see if the innocent
woman might not iu some way be
benefited. It turned nut that the
idea of 11 corn-slieller was original,
and, with some modifications, ami
after further correspondence through
the Patent Olllce this time with
the lady's husband, who did not
prove to be a bit "jealous" a pa
tent was granted. "Utife" Ingalls
got hold of this story, and whenever
he and Grant were together in a
suitable crowd Rufus would get off
this with great gusto. Rufus would
add (wlieu ho dared), "The Presi
dent and I used to shell 'corn' to
gether up iu Oregon and Wiihhing
ton Territory, but wo did'ntuso any
such invention. Our cylinder was
made of glass, and we got away
with many bushels." Chicago

she says, " iu the work of n largo farm

bed for several weeks. Getting a little
better from rest and quiet, I sought t 1
