Preparations were  made at the beginning of the season  for about 1,800,000 cases in all of  Alaska. The. total put up will probably not  exceed  1.300.000 cases.

The captain expressed* great concern over the loss of his insl.ru.  ments. They  were, ,hc said,     the  'most valuable of those in his possession; aud without them his observations at the "government observatory at Sitka would be rendered almost futile.

He brought with him a large number of his more 1 delicate instruments  to he adjusted at the station. The  instruments lost were lor taking  magnetic observations, and had ibcen  used throughout the trip.
