Through the kindness of Mr. Clar-f-nee Macfarlane, a party consisting of members of the local press and others was given a run out around the bell buoy and back in the new alco-vapor launch of the gentleman mentioned, yesterdaj- afternoon. It was a thor oughly enjoyable trip. The "Julie" ful filled all that the owner claimed for her, namely: comfort, speed, free dom from noise and general neatness of arrangement. It was the first time the launch had been taken out so far. Very soon, Macfarlane will take her to his home at Pearl City. She will be placed in a safe position near the residence and whenever a good time is desired, she will be used about the lagoon. No doubt other people will follow the lead taken by Mr. Macfar lane and purchase boats of the kind in the near future. Pearl City and vicinity is just the place for such craft. Mr. Macfarlane has been given the sole agency for the Islands for the launch. As has already been stated in this paper, the launch was brought here direct from New York on the ship A. J. Fuller. Mr. Macfarlane purchased her himself while he was in New York and, upon one occasion, took a run out into the bay with a party. He flew the Hawaiian flag but was soon made to lower this by one of the officers who patrol the bay, as such a thing is not allowed. The "Julie" has a five horse power engine and develops a speed of eight and one-half knots. Ten gallons of alcohol stowed in a tank in the stern is used expansively for power. It has the advantage over naphtha of expand ing a greater number of times and at a lower temperature. There is abso lutely no danger in the use of alcohol for, unlike naphtha, it combines with water in all proportions and, should any be allowed to escape, the fact that there is always a small quantity of water in the bilge, eliminates any like lihood of fire. The fuel used is kero sene, this being stowed in a one hun dred and fifty gallon tank forward. This amount of oil will last for 48 con secutive hours with the launch going all the while. At the highest, it costs fifty cents an hour to run the launch. The fact that both kerosene and al cohol are used might lead one to be lieve that the system is necessarily complicated but this is not a fact. The use of alcohol requires but little attention. When the engine is running, it flows as alcohol from the retort, through the engine as vapor, through the condensing tubes back to the tank as alcohol, only to start on its mis sion again and again, thousands of times! without any perceptible loss. The blue flame produced in the retort by the aid of kerosene or headlight oil, obviates the heretofore objectionable odor and, at the same time, retains the valuable feature of using a fuel that cannot be ignited at the temperature of the atmosphere. A close fitting cap just in front of where the vapor is generated, does away with the greater part of the noise and a bulkhead just forward of the machinery does away with the remainder. Here are some of the things claimed for the alco-vapor launch: It is light er than any other known launch of the same horse power; greater speed per pound weight of engine than any other known launch; weight of motive power so small that the launch will not sink, even though filled with water to the level of the combing; engine perfectly automatic in all its func tions, thereby requiring no attention, and can be started in from two to five minutes; when the gauge shows 20 pounds pressure the pressing of the lever to ahead or astern insures the starting of the motor without further aid from the operator; with the in stantaneous reversing motion the launch can be stopped when running at full speed, within its length; the fact of the engine being in the stern admits of all space forward being used for the comfort of passengers. Mr. Macfarlane's launch will hold about 20 people comfortably. She is all fitted up with electric lights the power for which is obtained from a storage bat tery. The whole thing is as simple as can be and with a few lessons anyone can run an alco-vapor launch. Former British Legation. Dr. McGrew advertises this morning for rent the cottage of the Hawaiian Hotel premises formerly occupied by Major Wodehouse as the British Lega tion. It is stated that possession will be given on June 1. The .place offered for rent includes a handsome cottage with ample grounds just across the street from Central Union Church. This is the third portion of the original hotel estate that has passed to private control during the past six months. The hotel people, however, have built more cottages on the ground they still retain. The time of A. Duncan, the former captain of the Union team, has expired as a member of the regulars and he has obtained a position under the Road Supervisor as overseer of the street cleaning brigade. He is doing excellent work. Mr. Duncan signed with the Regiment baseball team early in the season. In case he can obtain his release he will sign with the Ho nolulu team. Saturday's Kaccs.
