THE EVENING BULLETIN, HONOLULU, H. I., JANUARY 27, 1899.
islands went to the United States.
Two years later, in 1877, the por
tion which went to America consti
tuted about 90 per cent of the
whole, and this same proportion
has continued steadily ever since.
Of the $200,000,000 worth of ex
ports from the islands since 1876
something over $180,000,000 have
gone to the United States, and of
the $100,000,000 worth of imports
into the Hawaiian group during
tlie same period of time a trifle
over $70,000,000 represents the
merchandise coming from America.
Altogether the outlook for a
large increase of business between
San Francisco and the Hawaiian
Islands was never more propitious,
and it is now a reasonable certainty
that with the increased trade that
will go to the United States, the
bulk of it, in fact almost all of it,
will be done by the business men
f Sun Vrmirism.
In the bright morning light of
the twentieth century Californh
and Hawaii stand upon the thres
hold of a new existence. Vast new
commercial fields are opening their
portals, and every indication points
to a long season' of prosperity for
GOLDEN GATE PARK.
Description of the People's
The main entrance to Golden
Gate Park is 275 feet wide by near
ly a niile in length. The park itself
contains 1,013 acres, reaching from
Haker St. to the Pacific Ocean, a
distance of 4 miles. The visitor
passes the band stand where the
band frequently discourses classical
and popular airs. Around the stand
are accommodations for 20,000
people, while the driveway imme
diately in front can accommodate
1,000 vehicles. The Aviary, Deer
Park. HufTalo Paddock, Museum
and Conservatory arc all places of
interest worthy of a visit.
A visit to the Park would not be
complete wtihout climbing Straw
berry 1 1 ill, from which a panorama
of the City, Hay and Ocean can be
obtained that well repays one for
the trouble. Water is pumped to
the top of Strawberry Hill, and
falling down an artificially-constructed
cascade form a waterfall
of great beauty, supplying the lake
encircling the hill about midway
from the top.
The Lake forms the reservoir
from which water for the Park is
obtained. The rustic boat house on
the shore of the Lake is a favorite
Winding down the side of Straw
berry Hill and past Palm Valley,
one passes charming snatches of
scenery, finally reaching the Ball
Grounds and the Children's Play
Grounds, where every conceivable
adjunct to a delightful holiday is
No signs of "Keep off the grass"
arc to be seen in Golden Gate Park.
The grassy banks and slopes are
the property of the people and they
riot in ownership. Everywhere one
sees groups of people picnicing on
the well-kept lawns, enjoying the
sunshine and health-giving pure
Golden Gate Park is reached
either directly or by transfer by
every street car line in the City.

POINTS OP INTEREST
IN AND AROUND
The Uay of San Francisco is a
magnificent harbor having a shore
line of more than 300 miles by an
average width of 8 miles, and a sail
around it is one of the experiences
which the tourist should not neg
lect. The Islands of the Uay arc worth
a visit and may be mentioned in the
follbwig order: Goat Island, just
created the "U. S. Naval School of
the Pacific"; Alcatraz.cominanding
the entrance to the Golden Gate, is
fortified and contains the U. S.
Military Prison; Angel Island, also
fortified, and contains National
Quarantine Station; and Mare Is
land, the Naval Station of the Pa
cific. Each affords the stranger a
pleasant and instructive visit.
San Krancisco is well supplied
with military defenses, as not only
are the islands of the bay bristling
With cannon, but there arc Fort
Mason at Ulack Point and the Pre
sidio where Uncle Sam keeps 12
companies of regular troops.
I lie Presidio, which embraces
1,540 acres, was the old Spanish
Military Reservation. The govern
ment has spent a great deal of
inoiicv 111 beautifying the grounds,
opening walks and making dtives,
until today the Presidio Park has
come to be acknowledged second
only to Golden Gate Park in attrac
tiveness. Its drives wind along the
Bay over the bluff where the dyna
mite guns keep "eternal vigilance"
at the Golden Gate, and on around
by Baker's Beach and down Mc
Dowell Avenue to Golden Gate
Park, making the most picturesque
drive to be found anywhere in the
"The City of a Hundred Hills."
Within the City limits arc The
Mission Peaks, 925 feet high; Park
Peak, 570 feet high; Bcrnal
Heights, 426 feet high. Russian
Hill, one mile long and situated in
the most densely settled part of the
City, is 400 feet above sea level.
Nob Hill, so called because of
the location thereon of the homes
of some of the millionaires, is
reached by the California St. Cable
R. R. Notable among them is the
building on the corner of California
and Masop Sts., erected by the late
Mark Hopkins and afterwards pre
sented to the University of Califor
nia and by the Regents converted
into the "Mark Hopkins Institute
of Art." The Institute is open from
9 a. m. to s p. 111. and well repays a
visit, not alone for the pictures ex
hibited, but because the building
itself ranks among the finest in

.Honolulu Acjency, CAL.
San Francisco has been particularly
fortunate in the last decade with the
choice her nconlc hac made from time
to time of men to take the municipal I
helm. Looking back to E. D. Pond, I
L. R. Ellcrt, and Adolph Sutro, all men
of abdity and integrity, the city has rea
son to congratulate hcr.'clf upon May
ors, ecn if she had nothing to boast
upon as regards Supervisors. These
three gentlemen, however, while honest
in purpose lacked individually in some
particular clement, either of youth, vig
or, or determination, which left the tax
payers at the mercy of scheming City
Fathers who were alert in discovering
the Mayor's weak point. However,
e en this was swept away when James
D. Phclan, flic incumbent Mayor, as
sumed the reins of government at the
expiration of Mayor Sutro's term of of
fice. In James D. Phclan, San Fran
cisco got one of her Native Sons, a
man of youth, vigor, independence,
wealth, and health, a man whose first
term of office showed him to be fearless
of consequences when he aimed to ben
efit the people. Mr. Phclan, as much as
any one else, if not more, must have the
interest of the city at heart. He is one
of the heaviest taxpayers in the county
and he is interested in a half dozen of
the most prosperous institutions that
go to make San Francisco a great
commonwealth. As President of the
Mutual Savings Bank of San Francisco,
Mr. Phclan has piloted that house of fi
nances with nble assistants to a most
happy pinnacle of succevs, Out it is
the same here as it is in his manage
ment of the city's affairs. Mayor 'IHic
lan Is withal modest and retiring, and
the people of San Francisco paid him
the highest tribute they possibly could
by re-electing him by a tremendous ma
jority to the offce he now holds
