Thora is a haoa'spherioal map on

7urious routes marked, together
with a table of distances along

The shortest practicable route
Trom Brito to Yokohama is 7145
knots. From Brito to San Fran

Francisco to Yokohama 4536
knots; total, 7230 knots. Tho ox
cess of routo via San Francisco
over shortest practicable route is
91 knots. From Brito to San
Diego is 233b' Knots, and from San
Diego to Yokohama 4965 knots;
total 7261 knots. Excess of routo
via San Diego over shortest prac
ticable route, 116 knots, being an
excess ovor San Francisco routo
of 25 knots. From Brito to Hono
lulu is 4210 knots, and from Ho
nolu'u to Yokohama 3400 knots;
total, 7610 knots. Excess of Ho

The shortest practicable routo
from Brito to Hongkong is 8740
knots. Brito to San Francisco,
2700; San Francisco to Hongkong,
6060; total, 8760, boing an excess
of 20 knots over shortost prnoti

whilo being 353 miles shortor
than t'io routo from Brito to

Thoro is an odvnntago of 1510
knots in the" routo from Brito to
San Francisco over th-it from
Brito to Honolulu. From Hono
lulu to Yokohama is 1136
knots shortor than from San
Francisco to Yokohama. The
routo from Honolulu to Hong

that from San Francisco to Hong

coming by way of Honolulu have
964 knots farthor to travel than
those taking tho direct routo, and

Tho foregoing figures of dis
tances somowhat diminish tho
groat expectations of Honolulu
with rospeot to becoming tho mid
way station for tho groator steam
ship traffic botwoon Amorica and
tho Orient from tho opening of the
Nicaragua Canal. Steamships
ply botwoon San Francisco and
Yokohama without requiring
coaling stations on tho way. Tho
very alight oxcoss of tho routo
from Brito to Yokohama via San
Francisco oyer the shortest prac
ticable route, conjoined with tho
infinitely groator traffic San Fran
cisco has to ofibr ovor Honolulu,
would inevitably make San Fran
cisco tho midway station for tho
principal linos of steamers for tho
Orient connecting, by moans of
the oanal, with tho traffic from
tho Atlantic Coast. Theso facts
do not, however, by any
moans demonstrate that Honolulu
may not bonofit inimonsely by the
opening of tho oanal. A great
part of tho enhanced tide of steam
ship traffic will come hero by way
of San Francisco. Stoamors thence
for the Orient aro now regular
visitors, and it is not likoly that
thefroquencyof thoir calls will be
diminished when the commorco of
tho Pacific takes tho bound for
ward, 'which is inevitable toonsno,
when tho canal is oponod. Then,
with n cable. Honolulu would
doubtless become tho most conven
ient port of call for orders, for both
sailing vossels and freight steam
ers. Tho southern sailing routo
from San Franc'sco to Yokohama
runs oloso to tho southward of this
group, so that in the matter of
sailing craft Hawaii is still on
tho cross roadB of tho Pacific, oven
as to traffic botween America and
Asia. Sho can never bo put off

This week we want to call
the attention of the ladies of r
Honolulu and1 the Hawaiian
Islands generally to the merits
of the Wertheim Sewing Ala-chine.-
This is provided with
a Belgian invention by which
three different stitches may be
sewn according to the will of
the operator. Whether the
lady ot the house wants a sin
gle chain stitch or a combined1
two-thread or embroidery stitch
without in any way impairing
the excellence'of tlie machine
as a lock-stitch one, is- simply
a matter of pressing a. button,
this machine does the rest.
With this machine by simply
pressing a button either a lock
stitch, chain stitch or combin
ed lock and chain stitchfe pro
duced as desired. In other
words this one machine per
forms the work of three dis
tinct ones, and not content
with that can furnish in ad
dition a beautiful darri im linen
as well as woolen materials
and underwear by means of its
far reaching chain stitchMand
the need of any special darning
appliance is therefore avoided.
To produce the chain stitch all
that is necessary is to press
down a button near the stitch
regulator and move it from left
to right and go right along
with your sewing.
hor dressmakers and -those
who have much making over
to do, this machine is the best
out.. The chain-stitch is easily
unraveled by undoing the last
loop at the end of the. seam,
and although the embroidery
stitch is just as firmly locked
as the lock stitch and is. much
more elastic, yet it is easily un
done. All the operator; has to
dfl is to draw out the interlac-
'ed shuttle thread and the chain
stitch remains, which latter
unravels easily as stated above.
The rrfachine can readily be
changed from one stitch to an
other and back again, to the
ordinary lock stitch without
tany danger or getting out or
