THE DRYDOCK QUESTION.
Pursuing the introductory re
marks on the question of n dry
dook in a previous issuo, it may
bo said at tho outsot that fin or
dinary graving dock would cost so
rauoh probably two or throo mil
lion dollars as to placo it bo
yond all reasonable expectations of
profit on the outlay. Wo cannot
count upon tho largo numbor of
ooan steamers now calling hero,
with the prospect oven of great
incronso in tho nonr futuro, for
much patronage of a drydock. It
must bo romombored that Hono
lulu is, and must continue to bo,
ohielly important as a calling port
for transpacific steamship lines.
It cannot in tho mituro of things
ovei bo a torminusof oociiu routes,
where liuo steamers will stay long
enough to admit of booking for
periodical cleaning or occasional
overhauling. Until an isthmian
canal uuitos the Atlantic and the
l'aoifie, and a cablo gives Ha
waii instant communication with
tho outside world, this port will
not even be n rendezvous for
trump Bteamers and sailing vessels
seeking ordors. Accidents like
that which befol tho steamer Alio
wora, happening to largo vessels
on tho island coasts, would bo a
ridiculously uncertain contingen
cy on w hich to buso calculations
of business for an expensivo dry
dock. Thoro would bo somo rea
son in calculating somewhat on
getting United Stales national
vossels, the only ones tarying long
bore, as regular customers
for dockage, but on t!u- other
hand tho projectors of a
drydock would have to discount
tliu ohnuces of Uncle Sam's hav
ing a dock of his own at Poarl
luubor. If wo aro to have a dry
dock, either in place of or supple
mentary to tho raarino railway, it
must be ono adapted both to tho
nature of tho ground and to tho
reasonable expectation of patro
nage. An enclosed inshore dock
