STEAM TO PUQET SOUND.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs
has received a letter from Mr. J. G.
Swan, Hawaiian Consul at Port
Townsend, icgarding a project for
steam communication between Pugct
Sound poits and Honolulu. Mr.
Herbert Foote Beecher, ex-Collector
of Customs for Paget Sound district,
is the head visible promoter of the
scheme. By the way, he is a son of
the late famous Brooklyn preacher.
Mr. Beecher has called tlifferent
tunes at the Consulate to give and
ask for information. It is asseitcd
that the line would not.be owned by,
although it would run in connection
with, the Northern Pacific Railway.
The proposal is lo buy an English
stenmer, which can be had at a very
reasonable figure now, with a passen
ger capacity of 35 in the cabin and
200 in the steerage. Mr. Beecher
indicates the modest amount of
835,000 to $50,000 as the annual
subsidy that might be given by
the Hawaiian Government. As the
subsidy grauted by the Legislature
lo the Oceanic Steamship Company
is only 824,000 a year, the Pugct
Sound line projectors will require to
modify their expectations before any
meeting ground can be reached.
They have been advised by the For
eign Olllce through the Consul that
the Cabinet can do nothing whatever
in the matter before the assembling
of the Legislature. So far as this
end of the line is concerned, steam
communication with the Sound, at a
reasonable cost, would be very desir
able. It would extend the market
for bananas and other fruits very
materially, besides perhaps enabling
us to get provisions and luiuber
cheaper than at present.
Through the kindness of Mr. C. J.
Lyons of the Government Survey,
the readers of this paper have been
informed regarding the planetary
conjunction to-night. It has been
gathered from his notes that the
planets were to come witjiin a stated
nearness to each other. Mr. F. M.
English, however, in this morning's
Advertiser states that "this evening
shortly after sunset Jupiter and Ven-us-inay
be seen in conjunction." This
he qualifies by adding, " that is in
close proximity with each other."
Some unscientific people might be
misled by the foregoing statement
into thinking that they were going to
see that great event a planetary
conjunction to see which astrono
mers will travel round the globe. A
conjunction is the actual contact of
the planets' disks, although their
centers will not coincide. To give
its readers further information on the
event of to-night, the Bulletin has
interviewed Professor Marcuse, the
astronomer sent here by the Geiman
Government to prosecute investiga
tions into the variations of the earth's
axis which were some time ago dis
covered. The Professor cordially re
sponded with the information given
The conjunction of the planets will
take place at half-past eleven, after
they have disappeared below the
horizon. It will be visible in Asia.
For people on these islands there will
only be the sight of Jupiter and
Venus in near proximity beautiful
enough yet not the actual phenomen
on of a conjunction. As for the
moon, she will not be in the coif junc
tion, her place being near the zenith
when Jupiter and Venus are oo.
quelling with each other close to the
horizon. The moon will, however,
be in vertical line with the planets.
Last night tho planets were near
enough to make a pretty sight, but
they will be much nearer at their
setting this evening.

A CROWN OF DIAMONDS.
Tho llcniitlful Tlnrn Worn by the
Wlfn ut IJnvornor Hrotvn.
A beautiful tiara, or crown, of
diamonds, was recently completed
for Mrs. Frank Brown, who wore il
on the occasion of her husband's
inauguration as Governor of Mary
land. According to tho Globo-Dcmo-cral
it is one of the handsomest
pieces of Jenclro of tho kind ever
worn or made in Baltimore, and is an
exquisite piece of workmanship.
The crown is composed of a slender
baud of gold about a third of an
inch wide and long enough to extend
nearly around the head. It is per
forated at the ends with small holes,
though hair plus or a rubber band
may bo worn to hold it in place. The
ornamentation of the tiara consists
of live large stars, attached to the
front of the gold band and forming
a half circle of diamonds about the
head. The central star of this twiu
kling constellation measures 2J in
ches In diameter, or from point to
point, and the remaining stars arc
graded in size, decreasing slightly as
they extend from the central orna
ment. The diamonds ure set in plati
num, which makes au effective back
ground for the sparkling gems. There
are 350 stones in the five stars,
eighty-six in the large central one,
seventy-six in each of the adjacent
stars and fifty-six in each of the

be created within each jewel's depth
and clothed in all the colors of the
rainbow. In the center of each star
the lrrge 6olitairc is elevated above
the surrounding rays in a ciown set
ting, encircled by smaller stones sim
ilarly set. The diamonds in the five
points of the star and in the smaller
intervening points are imbedded in the

set as to fori) an amost unbroken
diamond surface. The stars arc fas
tened lo the gold band with pins run
ning through liny golden tubes from
which they can be readily slipped,
thus making the ornaments detacha
ble and suitable for use as breast
pins. Concealed in the top point of
each star is a pendant which gives it
another use as an ornament for the
neck or to be combined in a beauti
ful necklace of diamond stars.
