Strength of the Two Fleets.
In an official compilation of figures on the comparative strength of the
Russian and Japanese fleets, made by naval authorities at Washington,
the balance of gun power was greatly in favor of the Japanese. In big
guns and small the Russians were generally outnumbered, and although
the Russians had the greater number of battleships, the Japanese had
two or three times as many armored and protected cruisers as the Russian
fleets. Reiestvensky'.s createst nroblem. in the oninirm nf mniiv tvne
that of coaling. It was absolutely necessary for him to coal all of his
vessels as soon as possible-from the colliers he carried with him. With
bunkers anything hut full, he must have had a hard time. It is gener
ally believed he took coal on many of the warships at Anamabas Islands,
just beyond the Straits of Malacca, where it is now practically known
that he stopped. Another condition considered greatly in favor of the
Japanese was the experience of the personnel and the service of their
ships. At least four Russian battleships were new and their faults had
never been found, unless Rojestvcnsky discovered them while in the In
dian Ocean. On the other hand, the Japanese had been fighting with
their warships for over a year, and had undoubtedly seen all of their
weak points and corrected them. Following is the memorandum of the
forces of each fleet, with the dates of the building of the vessels of the
various types, showing the old and new types of war craft, and the total
battery power of each group:

vessels of Rojestvetisky's fleet arc accounted for, the Almaz and the

Honolulu Elks Excursion to Volcano.
According to Manager George L.ycurgus. now in Hilo, it is not im
probable that a delegation of Honolulu Klks will pay Madam Pele :i
visit ou Kainehameha Day. Ilefore his departure from Honolulu, in re
sponse to an inquiry whether there would be any attraction in Hilo on
June nth, which would be worthy of a trip by the Klks to see, Mr.
AyytuiKus saiu ue kiicw 01 no special program arranged tor that day by
Hilo people, but if the Klks would do him the honor of a visit to the
Volcano House, he would see that they were right royally entertained.
A special excursion rate has been made by Mr. L,ycurgus to Klks only,
providing a party of tweuty-five accept, at the nominal figure of thirty
dollars for the round trip, including transportation and a day's outing at
the Volcano. The Manna I.oa will be chartered leaving Honolulu on
Friday evening, arriving at Hilo the next day, and returning Monday
morning with the Honolulu herd.
