The cable office reported at 3:45 o'clock this afternoon that it had as yet
not come in connection with San Francisco. It had expected to be able to
do so for the last couple of hours, and could now not Imagine what could be
Superintendent Gaines of the cable company says that the difficulty of
the San Francisco office connecting up with the cable at the beach landing
Is not so much a matter of Instrument j as It Is of batteries. He sas
thero is probably a set of Instruments at the beach station but there may
not be batteries. Each battery weighs over two hundred pounds and In
the present condition of the Coast city It Is probably very difficult to obtain
transportation If not the batteries. When the elty of Honolulu will be In
connection with 8an Francisco Is purely a matter of speculation, though
the record of the seismograph shows that there has been no serious shock
since the early morning.
