There is much speculation as to
tho real purpose of Minister
Cooper's first visit to the United
States and the Government np
pear to bo moro than usually sec
retivo ou the mutter. Indeed it is
doubtful if any one outsido tho
Cabinet knows anything about it.
This extraordinary secretive
noss on a matter which is of pub
lic concern has leda to tho dis
semination of various rumors
about tho Foreign Minister's tour,
which may or may not bo
It is known, however, that Mr.
Cooper's visit to Vancouver is
necessitated by tho status of tho
Mueller und Cranstoun cases, in
which a new trial has just been
grnntcd tho plaintiffs and a com
mission issued to take, tho testi
rnony of Captain Bird, formerly of
tho Warrimoo, who is now in the
Colonics. While th'" suit is
against tho Cauadian-ivustralian
Steamship Company nny verdict
for damages rendered against it
will have to bo mndo good by the
Hnwaiiau Government, which will
account for the lively interest now
being tuken in the ease by it.
From Vancouver Minister
Cooper and his privato secretary
will journey to (Jostoii. Whilo it
is givou out that the Minister's
object in going to Bostou is to oat
baked .beans aud brown bread
with his relative's in that city, still
there are those who will persist in
tho belief that tho real object of
tho visit is to confer with Peter O.
Jones and, if possible, givo that
gentloman a boost iu his refund
ing operations, which scorns high
ly necessary from all accounts v.f
the dilliculties Mr. Jones is en
countering. From Boston there is little
doubt that Mr. Jones will join tho
party and thoso Now York bank
ers who havo promised to do
something for the Hawaiian loan
iu tho event of McKiuloy's elec
tion will bo interviewed and ask
ed to cut bail or leavo the wharf
for other fishermen. Minister
Cooper, in nil probability, carries
with him full powers to extend
tho limit of time given to Mr.
Jones and to authorize him to
proceed to England if the negotia
tions in Now York are a failure.
After theso matters have boon
arranged and tho baked beans and
brown bread consumed, Minister
Coopor with his privato secretary
will journey to Washington, timing
his visit to arrive a day or two
beforo tho convening of Congress.
"What tho object of tho visit to
Washington really is has boon
guarded most sacredly, but there
are thoso who cluim to know. Ouo
gentloman who was iutorviowed
by tho Bulletin said ho was sa
tisfied that Minister Hatch was
tired of doing nothing nt Wash
ington and wanted to coino homo
In that evont, said tho Bulletin's
informaut, Mr Coopor and Mr.
Hatch will probably exchange
places and everything will be
lovely. Another gentleman who
is iu olon accord with tho gov
ernment thought differently and,
indeed, claimed to know. Ho
says that Minister Hatch will con
tinue to represent Hawaii at
Washington at least during tho
coming session of Congress, and
that Minister Cooper goes to
Washington for tho express pur
pose of negotiating a free trado
treaty with tho United Statos.
If this bo true, it must be in
ferred that tho annexation pro
blem is still further from solution

W 8HINOTON, Oct. 15. Tho
Coast and Geodetic Survey has
just concluded its lnbors in tho
field upon the most stupendous
gcqdetio survey evor undertaken
iu auy country, and which gives to
the United States the longest base
lino upon which to establish eub
sequent Burvoys in existonco iu
tho world. It is known ns tho
Transcontinental Arc, aud lies
along tho thirty ninth parallel of
latitude, extouding from ocean to
ocean. Its eastern end is at a
point on tho Atlantic ten milos
south of Littlo Egg Island Light
hotiso, below Capo May, aud Ha
western end is six miles north of
Punta Aronas lighthouse, on tho
Pacific, noar San Francisco.
According to the radius of tho
thirty-ninth parallol, as given by
Bossel, the famous Astronomer of
Koonigsbnrg, Germany, who first
calculated tho diameters of tho
earth and measured the distance
from tho oarth to 01 Oygni, tho
nearest fixed Btar, tho length of
tho arc, as measured by the Coast
ami Geodetic Survoy olhoials, is
111 feet in error, aud according to
the radius of tho eamo parallel, as
fixed by Sir Androw Clarke of
Glasgow University, tho error is
984 feet. But General Dutliold,
Superintendent of tho survey, de
clines that theso variations from
the heretofore established stand
ards showorroc iu them aud not iu ,
the calculation of his scientists.
By tho measurements mado on j
the line aud which have boon ag
gregated in tho otlico here,
tho arc at sea level for tho entire
dibtauce, that is following the cur
vature of tho earth's surfaco, is
2025 8 miles iiiHjugth. The es
tablishment ot tho radius of the
thirty ninth parallel from thoso
measurements is a matter for
futuro calculation. t Tho
vastness of the woik just accom
plished cannot bo appreciated by
the unscientific mind. It was in
augurated by tho survey nearly,
if not quite, n half century ago.
Progress noon it has beou spas
modic, but somo work was doun
ovory year since tho beginning. It
has cost the government about
$1,000,000, but the expenditure is
said by tho officials to bo fully
justified by tho importance of tho
Kussia and China are tho only
othor countries on the globe whore
a base line of anything liko cqunl
magnitude is possible, and in
neither ouo iB it likely to bo sur
veyed for many years.
Tho longest base line heretofore
surveyed was that in India, run
ning north and south about a
thousand miles in length. Eu
ropean scientists have been great
ly interested iu tho progress of
the American arc aud its comple
tion will doubtless bo tho occasion
of tho recoipt by tho Geodetic
Survey officials of many congra
tulations from abroad.
