STORY OF THE UA1ILG.
Sllvcrtonn Reports Rough bnt Sue
The Sllvertown made her first
start from San Francisco for the
purpose of laying the shore cable
on Friday, December 12. When
she came outside, however, this
was found to be an impossible
undertaking. A heavy gale was
raging outside and, still worse, a
current was running like a mill
race, so that no line could be
successfully spanned out between
the shore and the vessel. The
Silvertown consequently put back
J to San Franciscn. On Sunday,
I December 14, the shore cable was
I successfully laid. One hundred
I tons of cable was put on board a
barge and laid from the shore out
to the Silvertown. .Sunday night

The end of the cable was buoyed
about thirty-five miles from Hono
lulu at 5:15 this morning, when
2238 miles of cable had been layed.
When the end was slipped into the
ocean, a terrific gale prevailed with
heavy rain squalls". The task was
consequently a very hard one, but
it was successfully performed. To
the end of the cable was fastened a
chain aud to this a 6-inch manila
hawser. When the end was slipped
this hawser ran overboard with
such terrific speed that the friction
caused sparks to fly from it. The
cable end was marked with two
The Silvertown left the cable end
at that distance from shore on
account of the fact that there the
deep-sea quality of cable will end.
.The thirty-five miles which inter
vene between that spot and the
cable landing will be spanned by
thirty-three miles of intermediate
cable, which is of a heavier quality
I than the deep-sea kind, and by
about two miles of rock cable,
whjch is stui stronger and whicli
will run out from the shore, where,

Further, the Silvertown, after
having unshipped all the cable end,
having burned most of her coal, is
very light. As a consequence she
will takVin coal and ballast here to
make her more stable before she
goiJ.l out to pick up the cable end
to: connect it with the shore. She
will also wait for the weather to
improve. Should th's happen she
will in all probability do this work
The cable laying was eminently
successful, despite the bad weather.
The cable was sunk to some enor
mous depths, 3000 fathoms, or
about four miles having been reach
ed while on most places the cable
now lies about three miles below
the surface of the Pacific. An
illustration of how very deep the
cable goes can be had when it is
known that when the vessel was
paying out the cable the strand
reached the bottom between twenty
two nnd twenty-seven miles astern
of the vessel.
The Silvertown besides her crew
carr U several different staffs of
cable workers, whose business it
was. lay and test the cable. A
contiguous test was kept between
