WM. C. GREGG INVtNIb A L,AlNt LUAUCK
THAT MAY SIMPLIFY LABOR PROBLEMS
William C. Gregg of Honolulu and
Minneapolis ha invented a cane load
ing machine, and during the pact month
haa been successfully exptninrnims
with it at Ewa.
The principle of the machine is as
The cane is picked up by hand, and
thrown Into a sled, shaped like the ribs
of a boat- The boat weighs 200 pounds
and holds. 800 pounds of cane. The
boat ie then drawn by a team of mules
to the side of the machine which
mounted on wheels and stands along
ide of and parallel to the railroad
track. It Is operated by a gasoline en
glne. The machine picks the boat up,
and dumps the cane Into the car, re
turning the boat to the ground, whence
It Is hauled back, to the field by the mule
team, left there to be filled, and a boat
which has meanwhile been filled Is In
turn drawn to the machine.
It takes only one minute after a boat
Is alongside of the machine, to unhitch
the team, elevate, discharge and return
the boat and hitch the team to it again.
The boats go over the deepest furrows
Three teams and six to eight boats
keep one machine busy.
A MACHINE CREW.
Mr. Gregg's estimate of the crew of
men. material and fuel necessary to
operate a machine, is as follows:
IS men loading boats.
3 men driving teams.
2 men on machine.
1 man hauling cars.
3 teams hauling boats.
1 team hauling cars.
10 gallons of gasoline.
Total 22 men, 8 mules and 10 gallons
Mr. Gregg claims that one machine
and the above outfit will load 200 to
240 tons of cane a day, with portable
tracks 300 feet apart, which is twice
Is far apart as they are now laid.
The first machine manufactured by
Mr. Gregg has been changed and im
proved in a number of details, and some
experimental runs made with an en
tirely untrained crew. The following
are some of the results: On March 4,
with ordinary stake cars, 13 men, 2
teams and 8 gallons of gasoline loaded
53 tons of cane in 7& hours. Reckon
ing wages at 7Vi cents an hour, a team
as costing the same as a man and gaso
line at 30 cents a gallon, the cost of
loading was 20.4 cents a ton.
On March 10th 23 men, 3 teams and
cane in 2 hours, or at the rate of 14
cents a ton of cane.
The usual method of loading is by
packing the cane by hand from the field
up an inclined plank to the top of the
car, where It is dumped Into the car.
Another method is to load the cane on
to 'sleds on which slings are spread.
The sled Is then hauled to a derrick be
side the track, when the derrick lifts
the sling and swings the bundle over
the car. where a trip drops It into the
These methods cost from 17 to 40 cents
per ton of cane.
The claims of the inventor for the
Gregg machine are:
1. That It diminishes the number of
men required to load cane by from 30
to CO per cent.
2. That it costs less money than the
3. That Jt saves the use of one-half
of the portable track now in use.

4. That the cane is freer from trash.
5. That it can work closer to the
cutters, than under the present meth-'
ods, thereby getting the cane to the
mill quicker, and preventing deteriora-(
tion of the cane. 1
6. That it enables the use. of the
cheapest and poorest class of labor, as
only one stick of cane nt a time has
to be handled, while under the hand
packing system, only the-strongest of
men can stand the strain!
7. JThat it saves the expense and de-
lay incident to the use of slings where
the present system of sleds and der
ricks is in use.
The machine Is now set up in a yard
opposite Mr. Gregg's office on lower
Alakea street, where It can be seen in
operation at any time upon application
at the office.
A Q OLDEN JUDGMENT.
A man was arrested not long ago in
Missouri for burglary. It seems he had
forced an entrance into a large whole-
rale store in the business district and
carried oCf a lot of valuable merchan
dise. The entrance was made throua
a back window, during the noon hour.
The clerk who was left in charge of
the safe had gone to one of the offices
in another part of the building. The
fafe, containing thousands In gold,
was carelessly left wide open ana
access to this fortune was easy. The
thief locked the safe without taking a
cent, but it was discovered later that
every DOUGLAS PATENT CLOSET
had peen stolen from the wareroorns.
It is readily seen by this that the
Douglas is more valuable than gold to
one who understnds values. Bath, the

Superintendent Cooper seems to have
a most touching confidence in the truth
fulness of Mr. Wilcox. To believe that
Mr. Wilcox turned public money over
to B. H. Wright two months after the
latter had been summarily removed
from office and placed in jail for embez
zlement appears to have required no
effort. Such examples of unshakable
trust are rare indeed in this skeptical
and suspicious world. Mr. Wilcox is
to be congratulated that his word car
ried him so far. Doubtless a grand
Jury would have believed the same
story, so it was no use calline- the
matter to the grand jury's attention at

More Trouble for Uncle.
NEW YORK, March 11. English in
vestors in Spanish-American loans and
enterprises are now looking for a
luel to ,he Venezuelan affair in some
other quarter of the western hemis
phere, says the Tribune's representa
tive in Lonaon. The only other coun
tries where defaults of interest and re
pudiation oi nnanciai obligations are
flagrant are Costa Rica and Guatemala.
The external debt of Costa Rica was
scaled down to lower rates of interest.
but defaults have occurred in both the!
interest and the sinking fund.
Guatemala's debt was also rearrang
ed for at 4 per" cent, but the interest
has not b?n naid. These count Jm nro
exposing themselves to foreign coercion
in the interest of Enropean creditors.
It is not probable that England will
join Germany in another naval cam
paign against either republic, since the j
British investors in the two main Ven
ezuelan loans complain that the ef-
feet of the al.iance has te.-n to establish
j preference for inferior German claims
I and to create a prejudice against the
legitimate claims of bondholders.
