R(ES(.'II CANE CARRIER. It i the Invention of penter. a Local ';m- Will do lock - MiK-h In an Hour '25 Bnl arts In i Hay sifachl 1 1 - ill . adopted. Charles Roesch. formerly carpenter at Pahala plantation, has invented a long distance cane-carrier that may be of grent benefit as an economical piece of machinery on plantations. Mr. Roes h has adopted for his in vention the old principle of treadmills, and it. an be made to run an unlimit ed distance. Mr. Roesch has completed models of his invention and submitted them to the managers of several plantations, who have approved them. Patents; have been obtained for the Hawaiian Islands, and applications have been laude to hav- them cover the United States. The carrier is intended for the re moval of cane from the cane fields to the mill, whether the grade be up or down, and it is destined to supersede the costly expense of bullock teams over rough gronncL It is estimated that it will do as much work In one hour as twenty-five bullock carts can accomplish in a day. It is built somewhat on the principle of flume with a movable bottom. The flume box can be made twelve feet long, so that they can be easily handled when it is necessary. The flume box is mounted on trusses twelve feet apart. On each of the carriers is a driving wheel eight feet in diameter. These wheels are made so that it is impossible for the cable to slip, as they are divided up into equal parts of four teen inches, flat surface, so that thes is from five to six of the boards on a steady strain all the time while the ma chinery is in motion. The wheel near est the mill is connected by a belt to the engine, by which power is introduced to the carrier. There is a double cable supported by fourteen-inch carriers, which go on rollers through the flume boards and Awarded Highest Honors World's Fair Gold Aledai .Midwinter Fair.

The Members of Company D Min strels sp nt yesterday thinking up ad ditional attractions for the 1,001 people who will attend the performance to night. Gus Murphy, the stage manager while well peased with the result of his efforts to train the members of the company, wants to give the audience the worth of their money. W. H. Char lock is working in harmony with the stage manager toward the same end As a result a wire was stretched across the stage yesterday and Mr. Charlock who is the Sandow of the company, spent most of yesterday afternoon prac ticing a balancing act on this wire. By dusk he was perfection itself, and to night he will walk the wire without the aid of a balancing pole or net. Mr ROESCH PATENT CANE CARRIER. around the driving wheels to prevent slipping. The cables will be -inch sted-wire roller, are 2 inches, work ing in a -inch steel pin in plates. These are fastened with screws, four on each plate, and the rollers are of wood; tne plates are malleable iron. The boxes are fourteen feet across the bottom, with ten-inch-high sideboards. The Roesch carrier is constructed on the plantation at a reasonable cost; it is estimated after careful study that one of these carriers can be construct ed at a cost not to exceed $5,000 per mile; two miles would cost but little mere, as the same wheels and power are used. A point in favor of this carrier, and a matter that has been a stumbling block in the way of former methods tried, is that the wind has no effect on it.' Some time ago an island planta tion expended $30,000 on a scheme which ultimately failed on account of the strong prevailing winds at that point. The cane is thrown in in the same manner as a common water flume, and will be conducted along the same way. Wood, feed, etc.. can also be carried in the same manner. M Mr. Roesch proposes to build a coal enrrier. to be used in loading island steamers: it will be somewhat similar in construction to the cane-carrier, the difference bring in the carrier boards and wheels. Mr. Robert is away at present on Hawaii on business in connection with his patent. Charlock will volunteer to carry the heaviest man in the audience on his back, and walk the wire blindfolded. The performance will be a good one. Homestead for Sale. On MONDAY, APRIL 6th, at 12 o'clock noon, at auction rooms of W. S.

A tolerabto mechanic can do the one the other requires the best thought of a musical artist. The Kroeger Pianos All have handsome, tasteful, JurabU cases, but jn their factory constant, careful, studious attention is given t the production of a ix?rfect and lasting tone. The beauty and honesty of t Kroeger begins with the varnish en the case and goes straight through te the iron plate that holds the string. We'd like to show you the inside of Kroeger.
