THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISES; HONOLULU, MAY 3, 1895.
largest in the world, with the ?iugle exception of that at Bremerhaveu, near the mouth of the Weser. Kach of the lock consists of two chambers which are parallel and contiguous. Only one chamber of each lock is shown in the cuts. Each chamber has an available length of 492 feet and a width of 82 feet. The largest Ger man ironclads are 3S0 feet long and 64 feet wide, and the largest transat lantic steamers of the North German Loyd are 463 feet long and 52 feet wide. One of the locks is at Hultenau, near Kiel. Its northern ba9in is ar ranged for vessels entering from the Baltic and the southern for ships bound in the opposite direction. Sev eral steamers or sailing vessels can pass through either chamber at the same time. The lock at Brunsbuttel, near the junction with the Elbe, is of the same size. It is provided with three sets of gates, which are be closed every four hours. The foundation was built mostiv dry. The walls consist of brick and square blocks of stone, and in all the lock contains over 100, 000 square yards of masonry. The walls are provided with supply chan nels to be used in filling the locks with water drawn from the inner har bor. These channels can be closed so as to be water-tight. Pontoons will be used for making the basin water tight when repairs are necessary. Both locks are operated by hy draulic power. In the center of the basin there are light in-swinging gates, calculated to relieve the main gates of Dart of the pressure in case of high tide or other emergency. On the canal, Just beyond the respective locks, inner harbors have been con structed of sufficient size for the ac commodation of a large number of vessels. The two big railway bridges, which have also driveways and promenades, cross the canal at Gruenthal and Leveusau. That at Gruenthal has al ready been open more than a year. The construction of the bridge is re markable. The supporting iron struc ture consists of a single slender arch. The roadway is partly carried by it and partly suspended from it. The span of 510 feet is the largest in Ger many. The floor of the bridge is 128 feet above the surface of the water in the canal, and the largest full-rigged merchant and war vessels can pass un der it by lowering their topmasts. The ends of the span rest on strong tiers of masonry crowned with tower like gates. The cost of the ironwork alone was nearly $12,000,000. The enthusiasm of the German peo ple over the opening of the great ship canal is immense, and the Emperor has personally superintended most of the arrangements for the celebrations. Before the inauguration ceremonies he will agaiu traverse part of the canal with several war ships to in spect the locks and harbors. On his last visit he was assured by the engi neers that there was no obstacle in the way of opening the canal on the date set originally. The festivities will begin with a banquet at Ham burg on June 19th. The Emperors squadron will pass through the canal to Kiel on June 20th, and will be met at Kiel by a welcoming fleet of war vessels representing all the great na vies of the world. The excursion steamers from near-by ports and a host of yachts from the whole North German coast will also be on hand. The North German Regatta Society will open the boating week June 22d, and the Imperial Yacht Club will fol fft5niTf6ne"L'4Tb:!ro t5r facing will end on June 28th with an ocean match over the course at Travemuende.

Sportsmen will be pleased to learn of the importation of twenty famous Wonga pigeons from Samoa by the Mariposa yesterday. The birds were consigned to Harry Whitney for local sportsmen, and turned loose at Luakaha yesterday afternoon. That place was chosen on account of the affinity of the birds for the woodlands. The WoDga are very much larger than the ordinary pigeons, and are of a dull color, akin to that of the turtle dove so common here. Those in terested in the importation of the pigeons ask that they be allowed to multiply without molestation. A Small Blaze. ice nre department was called to the honse of Geo. Wond on Liliha street, below School, at 7:30 last night. The explosion of an oil lamp in one of the back rooms canned a blaze, which scorched the interior slightly.
