Correspondence solicited. na, now in port is another party, though a small one, bound for India, in charge of Professor Campbell of Lick University, with the same object in view. These expeditions are made once in two years; sometimes the re sult is satisfactory, and again it is not. In Japan the observation was a failure, owing to cloudy weather; but in India the chances of success are greater, ow ing to the percentage of clear days. Professor Campbell was seen by a re porter for the Advertiser and ques tioned regarding his trip. Asked re garding his destination he said: "We go direct to Bombay, making direct connection at Hong Kong with a t Rr o steamer, and it is so arranged that we will make but one transfer before reaching Bombay. From that point we journey to the interior about onn miiPs There we will find the very best location for an observation. Our party is a small one, consisting of my wife and Miss Beans, an amateur as tronomer of San Jose. When we reach our destination I will require several esictants. and these I will procure from the nearest British garrison. "Oh no; I do not apprehend any personal danger. If I find there is danger I will apply to the commandant of the nearest garrison for an escort. We have with us several tons of ap paratus, including 250 pounds of pho- tographic plates, rnrougu iu ness of the officers of the China the nlates have been stored in the baggage room where there is no aaugei ui men being broken through the motion of the vessel. We have five spectrescopes and four cameras for the purpose of pho tographing the corona. The longest of these is 40 feet and the shortest one foot. With the longest I expect to se cure an image of the corona 14x17 inches. The course of the shadow will u b Afrina. over the Indian UC c. v' voj - j . Ocean, passing over India and ending in China somewhere about Mongolia. "This expedition of ours in me in terest of science and for the benefit of Lick Observatory was arranged and the money provided by the late Charles F Crocker a short time before his death. He took a great interest in the observatory, and during his life as sisted it in many ways. This is my first expedition, and naturally I am concerned in the result, me ianu of the Japan party was due entirely to climatic conditions. The chances for cloudy weather in Japan at this season are about nine out of ten. In India it is about one in ten, so that we are nearly certain of success. The eclipse will occur January 22d next, and after it is taken we will continue our jour ney around the world, visiting all the ipadinsr observatories before getting back to San Jose. "We regret the storm of this after wniise we had arranged a pro- SHIPS' BLACKSMITIIIN-G. gram for the day; now we will ! have to crowa i. iie ecuw tomorrow." .
