WhiU this lino is among the youngest of the product of California enterprise, it is emphatically a healthy youngeeter, and if encouraged as in the past it will always afford a display of the American flag on the Pacific Ocean. The company was chartered in Decem ber, 1831 . In 1883 two steamships, the Alameda and Mariposa, each of 3,000 tons burden, were built for the line by the Cramps of Philadelphia, to trade be tween San Francisco and Honolulu. The vessels continued on that trade, running a fortnightly service, up to 1835, when the Pacific Mail Company withdrew from the Australian trade. Then the Oceanic Company took up the contract for the Australian service, and bought the steamers Zealandia and Australia, of 3,000 tons each, which bad been previ ously operated by the Pacific Mail Com pany in the Australian trade. The fleet of the Oceanic Company thenjrom 1885, consisted of the Mariposa, the Alameda, the Zealandia and the Australia. Tbe new company entered into a contract with the Australian and New Zealand Governments, in connection with the Union Steamship Company of New Zea land, to run a four weekly mail service between this port and Honolulu, Samoa, Auckland and Sydney. The contract on this service in 18S5 was for three years and on its expiration an extension of one year was made by the colonies. Sub eequently an extension of another year was granted on the old terms of a subsidy equivalent to 37,000 to 40,- 000 annually. Tbe Oceanic Company has, therefore, run on the contract with the colonies and has performed the mail service between San Francisco and Syd ney for five years. It entered into a new arrangement with the New Zealand Government for another year's service, but the New South Wales and Austra lian Governments have refused to con tribute anything, owing to tbe neglect of the United States Government to con tribute a fair proportion of the cost. Three of tbe company's steamers have been employed in the Australian trade, and one tbe Australia in the local trade between San Francisco and Hono lulu. The company also has several sailing vessels employed in the Ha waiian trade. Said one of the chief offi cials of the company to an Alt reporter: " If it had not been for the enterprise of of this company and the Spreckels, the direct mail service between Australia and San Francisco would have been abandoned in 1885, and tbe very profit able trade since developed between the Colonies and the Pacific Coast would not have existed. The present arrangement. under which the service is run, is not profitable. Tbe New Zealand Govern ment simolv oavs according to tbe weight of mail matter despatched, and unless Congress passed the Shipping bill, en abling the United States Postmaster General to pay a liberal subsidy, there can be no doubt whatever that ultimate- y the American line will be replaced by a subsidized Bitish line from. Vancou ver. All the Oceanic Company's ves sels are manned by American citizens, and the company is in one way an ex ception to all the American companies. fcvery share ot its stock is ownea oy American citizens aud in the State of California. All the steamers fly th) American flag except tbe Zealandia, which is under the Hawaiian nag." Tbe importance of the maintenance cl the Oceanic Company's service to tbe hotel-keepers and merchants of San Francisco is easily apparent, ihe pas senger tramc trom Australia to we United States and trom Jbngland through the United States to the colonies is tbe largest coming into this port. On an average 200 saloon passengers paes through San Francisco on this route every month, spending an average cf xuu eacn m mis city during meir stay. There are probably 150 steerage passen gers on tbe same route each month, who also' spend considerable money here. The hotel-keepers and the railroads would obviously sutler a serious loss it this traffic were diverted to Vancouver and tbe Canadian Pacific. Alta. Q&ttttlttmmt, W. K.
