a few days erinco'tovijio coiiBtorua',
tion created "jnQnn' I-Vanciac'o
over tho loss of a largo portion of
tho Hawaiian trado and tho con
sequent dullness in tho shipping
circloB of tho Bay City. That
thero is somo cause for this alarm
may bo readily surmised vrhoii it
is shown that Hawaii iti by far
tho largest contributor to San
Francisco's trado, both export and
Collector AViso of San Francis
co has recently forwarded to
Washington his report lor tho
fiscal year ending Juno 30th,
which, in spite of the general
howl iu tho newspapers about
loss of trado and shipping, show
ed that both tho exports and im
ports wore considerably in excess
of thoso of 1895.
From one of tho tabulated state
ments accompanying tho reports,
tho actual San "Francisco trade
with all foreign countries in tho
Pacific is obtained. From these
it appoars that Hawaii is by long
odds tho best patron of that port,
both iu imports and exports, tho
figures being given below:
Decombor., January . . .
February . .
Total S 9,915,448
For tho samo period tho im
ports to San Francisco from other
countries wero: MftxinnSMHiiUf!?
.Central American States S2.809,-
4b7; South America 085,136 and
China 50,480,774, a total of $10,
297,993, or just $382, 545 more
than tho imports from Hawaii
For tho samo period tho exports
from San Francisco toother coun
tries wero: Moxico $1,213,017;
Central American States $3,170,
244; South American States S204,
914, China $103,285; Hongkong
$2,148,929, showing a difference
in favor of Hawaii over its next
highest competitor of $215,688.
In the matter of imports it will
bo seen that tho Hawaiian Isl
ands furnished tho largest amount
of revenue, China following,
though over $3,000,000 short of
tho little island ropublio. From
Mexico camo coll'co and silvor
bullion aud from tho Contral
American Statoa cbiToo and limes.
China sent over raw silk and rico,
and Hawaii sugar. Chile fouud
tho port a good market for nitrate
Iu exports i will bo noticed
that Hawaii, is again tho best
patron of tho port of San Frau
ci6co, China being a close beeond.
Tho first named country fiudB
need of American butter, cheefco
and sugar, while tho latter buys
principally flour. Moxico con
fines hpr purchases to cotton and
quicksilver, other southern coun
tries buying only flour. Tho
mont noticeable improvement dur
ing the year( was tho trado with
China, in which imports decreased
materially, white exports sliowed
a corresponding appreciation.
Unfortunately tho Bulletin is
unable to furnish corresponding
statistics showing a monthly com
parison o tli! increase of Ha
uuii't trade with San Francisco
over last year, as tho Hawaiian
statistical year isfiom January
1st to Decombor 31st, instead of
from July 1st to Juno 30th as in
tho United States From Consul
CtHueral Mills, however, tho in
formation is obtained that tho
total exports from' Hawaii to San
Francisco for the United StateB
fiscal year ending Juno 30, 1895,
amounted to $8,801,040. Tho
abovo figures show an increase of
$1,114,407.13 in tho exports of
Hawaii for the year eudiug Juno
30th last over tho previous similar
period, in spitr of tho shipment
of a very largo proportion of tho
sugar crop of tho early part of
this year direct to Now 1'ork.

By tho last stoamor from Japan
it was learned that tho American
yaoht Coronet with tho Amhorst
Col lego scion HbIs on board had
loft Yokohama for Hokkaido in
tho northern portion of Japan,
which placo thoy oxpocted to
reach throo wepks ago, bo as to
allow plenty of time to put up all
thoir apparatus aud give it tho
necessary tests so that everything
would bo in readinoss for taking
obsorvationB of and photograph
ing the oclipso of tho buu duo to
morrow. Tho spot selected by
tho Amorican scientists to view
tho oclipso is called Yeso. A
JL'roncu expedition hos also loft
Yokohama for Hokkaido iu tho
cruiser Alger and a party of
English astronomers also wont
north tor tho Bame purpose in II.
M. Storeshin Humber. The
! whole scientific world is now
praying for fine weather on tho
eventful day. As tho now moon
fulls duo on tho samo date somo
atmospheric disturbances may bo
looked for, to which tho present
spell of hot weather is probably
Professor Todd, who is in
j charge of tho Amherst College ox
I poditiou, is woll qualified for tho
same.having had much previous
oxperionco in watching eclipses,
detailing them to a reporter as
"I have had four astronomical
expeditions altogothor. Tho first
waB in 1878, when I was sout to
Dallas, Tex., in chargo of a Gov
ernment expedition to observe tho
total eclipso of July 29 of that
year. Tho aky was cloar and tho
results Bucced6ful, although noga
tivo, for wo wero in search of intor
Morcnrian planets and fouud
nono. Two astronomers, ono in
Colorado and ono iu "Wyoming,
during tho samo oclipso thought
thoy saw tho supposed planet
Yulcau, but thoir assertions wero
"My second expedition was
when I camo out hero iu 1882 up
on tho invitation of Eiohard S.
Floyd, thon president of tho Lick
board of trustees, to superintend
on Mount Hamilton tho observa
tion of tho transit of Vonus. That
was my most successful expedi
tion. l"t was a perfect day, not a
cloud in sight from tho mountain.
Wo took about 100 photographs
of the transit of Venus, und they
ore pretty generally known now
as tho best photographs of tho
transit of Vonus evor taken. I
can say that, because I whb not
tho photographor; thoy worotakon
by an old mnn I brought from
Amhorst. Tho finest negative of
tho lot was from a plato mado by
Flaglor of this city, and as no
other transit of Venus will occur
until Juue, 2004, ho io likoly to
hold tho record with that plato.
"Thou my third ono was to
Japan in 1887 to obsorvo tlio
total oclipso of tho sun on August
19. That was under tho auspices
of the National Academy of Scien
ces at Washington.
"And tho fourth ono waa also a
Government expedition, under tho
atispiceB of tho United Statos
Naval Department. Secretary
Tracoy ordered the transportation
of tho expedition in tho United
StateB steamship Pensacola. Tho
station selected was Angola, a
Portugueso colony on tho west
coast of Africa.
"Thoso two oxpeditious woro
about equally unsuccessful on ac
count of the interference of local
clouds at tho critical moment."
Tomorrow's eclipso will bo visi
ble to tho Arctic regions, eastern
Europo, the northom half of Asia
aud tho western portion of tho
Pacific Ocean. Tho lino of total
ity runs through Nova Zambia
and Yeso, Japan, which accounts
for tho selection of the latter
placo as tho point of observation
lor tho Coronet expedition.
