which contains in water lines a gigantic
American caglo and seal of the department

nicklo watch iu addition to rny gold one for
the differences of time in traveling necessi
tates so many changes that it would ruin
any tine piece of machinery. This watch
has twenty-four feet of spring and it takes
one a long time to wind it though it is a stem
winder. Uy holding the screw on the wheel
of a jmrikslia it winds itself in no time and
it does not seem to hurt the watch. As to

In addition to clothes one should take n
supply of simple medicines with him and if
he is fastidious m the use of soaps and per
fumery he had better lay iu n good stock of

and the foreign residents hero tell strange
stories of some characters. One girl from
Doston who came out here to act as a mis
slonary , and who I nui told has done some
very good mission work , lee , wept tears of
sorrow with her friends before she came out
to labor among the heathen. She packed
away all her party dresses and left her Jew
elry at name. She expected to find none but
the Japanese to associate with , and she evi
dcntly thought that the Japanese in culture
ranked with the inhabitants of the Congo.
She found at Yokohama , as I did , some o
the best dressed women in the world , aud
upon being invited to several of the parties
of the foreign settlement concluded that her
best dresses and her finest jewels would beef
of as much use to her hero as at home. It Is
in traveling as at u hotel. The nobby sui

s virtually diflercnt from the Atlantic , and
'aeitie ocean travel offers almost as many
icw things as one of the countries of Europe.
When you step on the deck of an Atlantic
.hip you are in England. As soon as you
and your baggage iu the state room of a Pa-
cillc steamer you are in China. The ships
ire maimed entirely by Chinamen with the
exception of the chief officers , and you drop
nto the land of the celestials the moment you
o o sight of San Francisco. The steerage
lasscngcrs are all Chinese. Your food is
cooked by Chinese cooks and your rooms are
cared for by white-gowned , almond-eyed men
in pigtails. The waiters , the sailors and the
coal heavers are Chinamen , and on the
Gaelic the European officers did not number
over a do/en. 1 watched the sailors closejy
and Captain Pcarno , who is one of the oldest
captains on the Pacilic ocean , tells me they
make better seamen than tlio English or the
American. They are conscientious In their
work and do not shirk. They never talk
back and if they swear it is in their own lan
guage. They never get drunk and the only
time they grumble is when their rice is not of
the best quality.

wear a dress which is across between that of
the American Chinese washerwoman and the
piuu celestial. U is extremely light and con
sists as a rule of but two garments. These
are a wide , shirt-like gown and a pair of
pantaloons , which are as full as those of a
X.ouayo and which Hap loosely about their
yellow-skinned legs. Some of them wear
shoes and some of them do not , and tlio skin
of their feet is of the dark , rich bion/o of
their faces. They have sailors' caps , winch
lit closely down above their almond eyes , and
each ono has a big knife , which ho cairics in
a case attached to tlie center of the back of
his waist band and resting , as it were , on the
small of his back. Their clilcf food is rice
and they use chop-sticks In eating it. They
get M cents a day and consider themselves
\\cllpakl. It costs about
to feed a Chinese steerage passenger and it
costs a Chinaman fi.'i to pay nis passage from
San Francisco to Hong Kong. Notwith
standing the immigration laws more return to
America than go away from it , and this ship
carried over a thousand during its hist voy
age. Tlio companies wliich ship them to
America engage to deliver them dead or alive
back into China , and the result is that if a
Chinaman dies on ship board his body is
never sewed up and cast into the sea , except
in cases of small pox or cholera , but it must
bo embalmed and carried on to China. Wo
had two deaths before we reached Yokohama
hama , and the doctor who embalmed the
bodies got $1' ) apiece for doing so. This is
the regular charge on all the Pacific steam
ers , and the embalming fees amount to quite
an Item when you have a thousand or so Chi-
namen on board.
The Pacific steamers must carry much
larger supplies than the Atluntic. When'a
steamer starts out from San Francisco to
Yokohama it has 1,300 tons of coal , and it is
provisioned for a six months' voyage. Our
ship carried live sheep for mutton , and the
Chinese butchers killed these from time to
time. It carried also flfiy-fOkir cows to a
dairy in Hong Kong , and these supplied u
with fresh milk. Two calves were born on
the trip , and the dally encursious to sec the

The steerage was altogether made up of
Asiatics. In it were X > 0 Chinese men ,
eighteen Chinese women and twenty-six
Chinese childien. They wcro going from
America back homo to China , and the men
were of all classes , from tlie Chinese mer
chant to the coohc. I stood for hours look
ing down upon them from the upper deck.
They were rather dirty than clean , but their
slant eyes , their long cues and their half-
Chinese , half-American dress made a queer
conglomeration of the picturesque and the
ridiculous. Not a few of them had on soft
American hats and some wore American
clothes , but the majority were Chinese
throughout. The women wcro of all ages
and the loses shone out the orange skins of
some of the younger among them. They
were kept by themselves , and it is against
aiders for a man to cuter their apartments.
Accompanied by the Chinese steward I man
aged , however , to get u look at them. I
found the whole twenty six In two small
cabins , each no larger than
A n.u.LiiEi ) uoow.
The walls of these cabins wcro lined with
berths one above another like the shelves of
a sleeping car , and between thcso were tiers
of other berths made by fastening poles to
gether and stretching canvas over them.
Tlie bed that each woman had was about a
yard wide and these Chinese maidens were
lying on those in every conceivable attitude
us I entered Some of their dresses were
slightly dccollcttc. They gi limed as wo went
through and jabbered at us in Chinese. I
afterwards visited the men's quai lers and
found them boused In much the sumo way.
Thcv spent most of their time in bed during
the voyage and many of them hud not had
their clothes off during the trip. The Chi
nese arc
and pai tics of half a do/en might be seen
gambling together , squatted on their
haunches about straw mats on wliich they
played with dominoes. Their game seemed
to be a kind of poker mid they used lozenge
like buttons as chips. At some times the
loser would grow t > o excited that ho would
pick up tlio whole garni ) and throw it over
board , and instance' ! often occcr where Chi

Wo had two opidm joints on board , for tlio
Chinamen cm not got along without his
opium. These wcra made hj curtaining off
part of the ship's dock with canvas , and in
them at almost any hoar of the day could be
seen dozens of Chinamen lighting their opium
pipes and blowing the smoke out through
their nostrils. The Chinese sailors

accommodations , our steamer was fully as
good as any steamer of the Atlantic and the
cooking of the Chinrunon was fully up to
that of a French chef. The service was ex
cellent , and though for fourteen days wo did
not see a bliip nor anything save the broml

we felt as safe as though wo were riding up '
the Hudson. During this llftcon days' voy

The moment I arrived at the Grand hotel
in Yokohama I was called upon by a Chinese
tailor , Ah Shing was his name. He brought
a lot of samples with him , and took my
measure on the spot. Ho inado mo suits of
the best white llannt'l surge for J'J ' a suit ,
and the lit was a good one. IIu was hardly
out of the door before another tailor of
Yokohama , Mr. Chung Chow , came in and
took my order for a suit of blue flannel at f'J ,
white vest at $1. . " > 0 and a suit of pyjamas at
$ ! . Pyjamas are the nignt clothes of the
east. Tlioy are composed of a pair of loose
drawers and a jacket , which buttons up
loose at the neck , and wliich is held at the
waist by a draw string. They are made of
flannel , silk or cotton , according to tno taste
of the wearer , and it is all right hero to ap
pear in them from after dinner in the even
ing until breakfast time in tha morning.
Ladies wear them as well as gentlemen , hut
they add a wrapper to the suit , and quite a
number of the foicign men here add a
klmoiia or Japanese gown. As Chang Chow
measured me lor my Pyjama he Jabbered tome

He was a plump , almond-eyed , yellow
skinned young fellow , with a cue wliich
reached to his heels and a lavender silk gown
which would have mcde a White House re
ception dress. His cue fairly tihook while
he tried to describe the big frame of Govern
or Hubbard , our Minister Plenipotentiary to
Japan. Governor Hubbard is almost as
heavy as George Names of Georgia , who ic-
jolces in the title ol being the fattest man in
congress. He makes a silhouette something
like that of Hen Butler , and ho Is as big
around the waist as Sam Cox is tall. Gov
ernor Hubbard Is liy no means a short man
and his frame cats up cloth as a corn shcller
chows corn. Fatness In the east is a sign of
wealth , and Chang Chow could hardly ex
press his admiration and wonder at our min
ister's shape.

his eyes. In the mean time I find that

quite as much attention as the performance
itself. It consisted of Mrs. Cleveland , who

RO out duriiit' the day. She will resume her
trip tills morning. At Palmer's theater last
night sue seemed much interested iu "Les
Surprises du Divorce' , and the great Frencli
comedian , Coquclin. She wore a
mouse-coloied velvet short skirt , in
laid in panels , with plaits of white
surah silk and trimmed with silver
passementerie. The bodice was high , with
n white surah vest. At her corsage and in
her hand wore bonnets of pink roses. She
entered the theatre in it short seal wrap , but
wotc no hat. Kho wore no Jewels except
the little gold ehisp pin which she wcais al
most constantly.
Mrs. Folsom was dressed In black velvet ,
with point lace. Mrs. Lord wore a blacli
lace over scarlet , red and black bonnet , and
Mrs. Ward an ecru lack and Persian brocade ,
with silver passamenterle , diamonds and
pink roses.
Mrs. Cleveland clossly followed the per
formance , which she evidently understood
and was seemingly ignorant of the fact that
do/ens of opera glasses were leveled at her.
Mrs. Ward went to Miller's agency In the
Equitable building for a box hm Tuesday ,
only to be tolu that all weto engaged. Upon
learning ttiat Mrs. Cleveland wished to at

tendered the use of his private box.
