Following Is the report of Comman

vey: U. S. S. Nero, San Francisco,
February 12, 1900.
Sir: In obcdlcnco to the Depart
ment's instructions, dated March 10,
1899, In transmitting the reuults of
the work recorded upon tho formn and
plotting sheets at tho conclusion of the
1'aclllc Bubmarlne telegraph survey, 1
have to mnko the following report
As I believed my llrst duty was to

Yokohnma to travcrso tho direct line
back to Guam. 1 bcllcvo It Is sulllclcnt

I wns Informed by Commander Bel
knap the last tlmo he was nt Guam
that' ho was satisfied that Tarafofc
was the best place for landing n cable
on tho Island. I nm of the samo opin
ion, after what I havo seen of the
wholo and consulting tho best authori
ties on tho Island. If Tarafofo Is not
accepted, tho cablo would have to be
taken around and landed on tho south
ern sido of tho harbor of San Louis
I took on board 1,200 tons of coal at
Guam, and on tho morning of Novem
ber 12th proceeded to finish the sound
ings around the Island. Tho 20-fathom
and 100-fathom marks havo been es
tablished nt Tarafofo and San Louis
d'Aprn. Tho drop-off at tho mouth of
tho harbor of San Louis d'Apra Is so
abrupt that, though I took n sounding
as closo in as was prudent in this ship,
It fell to 234 fathoms.
I then proceeded to find a southern
route to connect with our direct lino to
Midway, but struck tho Nero deep
again and nm convinced that it cannot
be gotten around with tho cable. Here
tho two dcepcst.casts and tho two deep
est temperatures ever taken were re
corded. Tho depths aro 6,100 and C.2C9
fathoms, and tho temperatures are 35.9
at 5,070 fathoms and 3G at 5,101 fath
oms. I then proceeded back to tho vlclnltv
of Tarafofo and began to travcrso nnd

Our landing at Midway, outward
bound, developed' nit that could bo
seen. It was found as described in the
Sailing Directions. Sand Island may
havo changed some In dimensions and
form, but it is not noticeable to the
eye. That a light frame building Is
still standing about tho middlo of the
northern side, which was apparently
built some years ago, goes to bIiow
that tho elements do not treat it very
sovcrcly. It seems as though tho Isl
and could certainly nccommodato a
sufficient plant for n rolay station.
Tho travcrso was continued from
Midway to Walmcn Day, Oahu Island,
Hawaiian Islands. About 11 p. m
Jnnuary Gth, a southwest galo was en
countered. It looks Ilko n flno bench
and ns though It would bo a good land
ing station. I then proceeded to sound
around to Honolulu, discovering a
bank with 500 to 600 fathoms of water
on it, extending between Onhu nnd
Knunl nnd arrived off Honolulu tho
morning of January 22d. Tho currents
of tho Pacific arc very variable nnd ec
centric nnd would seem to bo subject
to a tldnl Influence, especially in tho
vicinity of reefs nnd Islands. In tho
trndo belt between Midway and Guam
tho current Is generally westerly, but

From tho dato of sailing from San
Francisco, April 22, 1899, to date of
arrival nt samo, February 11, 1900, a
total of 288 days. 19 hours, tho ship
had etenmod 29,203 knots. Sho has
been at sea .40 days, C hours, and at
anchor 48 days, 14 hours.
Two reels were crushed in tho course
of tho wholo work of tho survey.
Most nil of tho positions of tho
soundings aro practically dcflnlto from
tho ordinary navigation point of view,
though they are not so marked when
a run of any consequence comes in.
Every means nnd devlco known and
nvallablo at sea, have been used, and, i
as finally corrected on the forms and
plotting sheets, after tho last checks
jn the chronometers nt Honolulu, they
ire as absolute as possible at sea. To
-ho best of my knowlcdgo I do not be
.iovo n cablo routo was ever so cx
cnslvcly and tnoroughly surveyed nnd
I believe tho result of the survey
irovts the routo to be eminently sat

Value of Wide Tires.
Indiana has a law enacted in 1S99
hat forbids tho uso of public roads for
iaullhg over 2,000 pounds of anything
n a nnrrow tired wagon and over 2,500
winds In wagons with broad tires,
fhc law has been merely nominal, and
luring tho Inst ten years there have
occn fow attempts to enforce it. The
oad supervisors in several counties
lave awakened nt last to their duty
md they aro posting warnings that
lolatcrs will be prosecuted. Aside
rom the fact that laws should bo en
forced, the supervisors nre taking the
jest possible steps to prevent tho do
crlorntlon of their roads. Expert
nco has shown tho dcstructlvcness of
larrow tires, especially when carry
ng heavy loads, nnd it has also shown
hat tho broad tires aro more economi
cal to tho owners of the wagons them
selves. Funcrnl Hcforc Death.
