4l Time was when the expense of forti
fying was'very grcattfut since the use
of masonry in forts has been given up
and the best defensive results arc had
by digging a hole in which great guns
are placed to lie raised and lowered by
hydraulic machinery, the matter
ot cost does not cut more
than half the ficurc that it did.
In respect of Hawaii tinder annex
ation, land fortifications and a sub
marine torpedo system ample enough
ot make the islands impregnable could
be secured at an expense which would
fall far short of the financial benefits to
be gained by the United States from
the ownership of the group and the
absorption of its revenues. Nothing
but a very short sighted and penurious
policy indeed could make Americans
hesitate about annexing Hawaii on the
score of defensive expenses.

MRS. BLOUNT'S FALL.
ACCIDENT ON THE VOLCANO
The House of Fire Other Matters of
Interest Reported by the "Star's"
Hi 1.0, May 15. The glow of red
light telltcled from the clouds hanging
over the volcano is very bright these
nights. To the observer in Hilo the
appearance of this reflection alternates
from one of incieasing intensity to one
of giadtial dying away. Visitors re
turning report the volcano as veiy active
at present and say that the gnat pit
which but two years ago was more than
600 feet deep is now being rapidly filled
up by the lava.
Viewed these nights, Kilauea pre
sents a spectacle inexpressibly grand
and awe-inspiring. The activity of the
forces at work appears to be gradually
increasing, and wo may look foiward
to a climax before long, with a repeti
tion on probably a grand- r scale of the
striking phen unenon of two years ago.
Long since has the pit of Keanakakoi,
the "cave of the axe," distmt less than
one-half a mile from Kilaucaiki, had
its entrance covered up by a recent
flow of lava, and the tourist is thus
deprived and shut out from a view of
this cavern where in ancient times the
adze shapers carried on their work.
Dana lake, Halemaumau and the so
called new lake of 1S83 are all things
of the past, and their site is now occu
pied by the " pit of 1891. For a long
time this pit was deemed inaccvssiblc.
though it did happen that one inquisi
tive sigiit-seer with more temerity than
judgment succcedtd in reachinu the
bottom with the 11 lendly assistance of
projecting spurs 111 one of the fissures.
At present "facilis descensus averni,"
hit shoilly after this pioneer undertak
ing of our courageous friend a poition
of the walls fell in, over the ikbns of
which a trail has since I). en constructed
and now no pilgrimage to IVlc's temple
is complete " unless you have betn
down in the pit."
It is when standing on the blufi" of
Uekahtina, the highest point in the wall
of the crater, that the traveler is lost in
a whirl f admiration and del ght at the
spectacle his gaze drinks in at every
Diiectly beneath him the lake of fire,
an ever-shifting panorama, with its
liquid mass si ly heaving up and
down, here cooling with a crust (if dull
red color, thcie in a stale of violent
agitation ; and while we watch the
former congealing there is all at once
an explosion, the cooling crust is broken
up in every direction and masses of
incandescent material pour out from
the cracks, overwhelming the black
lava which once more it-turns to a
molten state, and on the lighter, Itss
viscid poi lions we obseive the play of
large fountains c I (ire which seethe and
hiss and dr p their fiery cascades on to
the lower levels of the pulsating tide.
To the south of him are the sand
hills of Kan and the distant fields of
the plantations fringv-d with the verd
ure of growing cane and blending in
the perspective with the south point of
the Island. Far to the west the great
dome of Mauna Loa capped by ever
shifting banks of clouds behind whii h
the summit crater of Mokuaweoweo is
lost to view, while in the noithland
majestically tower the distant peaks of
Mauna Kea, nearly 14,000 feet in hight
And turning back to the east he is
brought back to a sense of his sunound
ings and the onward maich of civiliza
tion by the sight of the modern hotel
with all its conveniences and induce
ments to luxurious repose, and with
one final look around him and btneath
him our friend will tear himself away
from the fascinations of the scene to
plod wearily but contentedly home
ward, feeling amply repaid for all his
fatigue and hardship.
How much greater the travel to the
volcano would be were the present
road now in course of constitution
completed, can only be surmised. The
work of constitution should be carried
on as expeditiously as possible so that
a journey over it might be looked for
ward to with pleasure and not with mis
givings. Tluie is no pleasure in a
journey which may be accompanied
by danger and it is short of miraculous
that Mrs. Iilount was not seriously
injured. Though further particulais
have not as yet come to hand iclative
to this unfortunate occmrence, it is
known that the hoise ridden by her
stumbled and tell somewhere between
the main road and the bullock pen.
This is a miserable section to pass
over, full of holes and ruts, and coveted
with loose stones, but the I iy demon
strated her true Georgian pluck, by re
mounting her animal and liding the
lest of the distance, nearly eight miles,
to the volcano.
Mrs. Iilount was not alone in her
misadventure, as theie weie no less
than seven accidents in all" to different
membeis of the party. Even the poor
little donkey carrying the pack was
mired three times, making it necessary
to remove his load each time before he
could be extricated. All this g'-es to
prove in what a dangerous condition
this so called fein trail really is. It
debouches from the main wagon road
and comes out at the bullock pen, a
distance of one and a half miles, which,
t gether with the few miles still remain
ing, should immediately be taken in
hand and pushed to a finish. The
present gang of seventy men, and pris
oners at that, is ridiculously insufficient.
A reinforcement of at least 100 men
more should be immediately put to
work. Too much money is expended
in salaries for goalers, superintendents,
lunas and supernumeraries.and too little
for road construction. It behooves the
Government to stop dawdling along at
this snail's pace of $1,000 per month.
The coming thiee or four months will
bring in a large tourist element, and so
much advertising has already been done
to bring these Islands, with their vol
cano, before the tiaveling public, that
those coining will be obliged to choose
the l.au route, by reason of its greater
freedom from hardship, unless steps arc
taken to prevent the recurrence of such
accidents as happened to the Mount
MURDERS BY WHOLESALE,
A Story Front Toxas That Seems Im
probable. Denison, Tes., May 6. Sensational
developments are coining up in the
Carlisle Lutlrell murder case at Sher
man. The news has become current
that G ivernor Hogg has written to
Judge llrown for the particulars in
Charles Luttrcll's case, his pardon hav
ing been applied foi, and he wished to
thoroughly investigate the case.
It is said that Lutlrell has divulged
infor. nation concerning the teinble
butchery f women here last spring
that will probab'y secure his reprieve,
or possibly pardon m full. The exact
confess'on cannot he had, but it is said
that since 1S7S James M. llrown, John
Carlisle and his fiiends had killed 248
men in e.rder to kill testmony against

Sparks. Tom Sherman, their last vic
tim, was an eye-witness. There were
many others, besides strong circumstan
tial witnesses, llrown and Carlisle being
wealthy, started in to kill the evidence
against them, and Luttrcll's startling
confession is but a glimpse of the awful
real.ty of this unparalleled series of
crimes that cost 248 men their lives and
the perpetrates millions of dollars.
Luttre'l would not give the nam -s of
their victims and said he did not know

afternoon in a rim from Rochester to
liuffilo, attaining a speed of io2jjj
mile? an hour. The train was drawn
by the new Columbian engine, No.

Fair. Miles were made in from 42 to
50 seconds light along until Corfu was
reached. The distance from Corfu to
Crittenden, four miles, was made in
3J4 minutes, and the two miles be
tween Wende and Lonneyville were
rolled off in 1 minute and 30 seconds.
The Hack from L-ioneyvillo to Forks
station is as s -lid as a rock and well
adapted t' record bre iking. The dis

minutes and 58 seconds. Just before
the Forks was leached a mile was made
in 35 seconds, timed by a stop watch.
The sixty-nine miles from Rochester to
liuffalo was made in 68 minutes.
FAREWELLS TO PADEREWSKI.
The Great Pianist Sails on the Steam
New York, May 6. Ignace Johann
Paderewski left America on the Paiis
this morning at 9 o'clock. He was
surrounded by friends who gave him
(1 wers and parting presents and tried
unsuccessfully to save him from im
poi lunate autograph hunters. When
the ship left her dock the crowd
cheered and many women wept. Pad
erewski himself appeared cheerful,
waving a white handkerchief while the
big vessel steamed out into the river.
Light Draught Gunboats.
Washington, May 6. The designs

They are lobe ab nit 1,200 tons dis

engines, light of draught and intended
fur set vice on the Asiatic station,
where they will be able to ascend far
up rivers, where American interests
have been several times jeopardized in
recent years, and the government was
unable to give them proper protection
on account of the great draught of
our naval ships.
Resignation of Gen. Rosecrans.
Washington, May 6. Secretary
Carlisle to-day received the resignation
of Gen. Rosecrans as a register of the
treasury, to take effect May 31. In
tendering his lesignation Gen. Rose
crans refers to his impaired physical
condition and encloses a certificate
from a physician which states that Gen.
Rosecrans is unab'e to undertake the
long journey to Washington from Cali
fornia and does not hold out any hope
that he will be able to do so in the near
future. Secretary Carlisle accepted the
resignation this afternoon.
There is Much Ivory.
The somewhat prevalent idea that
the supply of ivory is nairowly limited,
and that it is likely soon to be a scarce

in London Field to be entirely in
correct. The writer says that in Cen
tral Africa the chiefs have so many
tusks that they do not know what to
do with them, and in some instances
the kings surround their houses with
stockades of ivory. In return for a
gift of a uniform coat, a cocked hat
and a sword, a State officer recently

HOWARD ON HAWAII.
MORE FROM THE AMERICAN
He Finds Plenty of Opera Bouffe on the
Islands All a Joke to the
Ill the Examiner of May 5 the fol
lowing interview with Hronson Howard
"It's all like ' Topsyturveydoin '
there, ' said Hronson Howard, most suc
cessful of American dramatists, upon
his ictiirn from Hawaii. "Topsytur
veydoin is the demesne distinctively
ruled by Gilbert in all his light opera
work with Sullivan. The term is ap
plied to his faculty for developing peo
ple in impossible situations. Hut there
is nothing more seemingly impossible
in the 'Mikado,' 'Pinafore' or 'Patience'
than the relations of people in Hawaii.
It is all opera boulle there and the field
for Gilbert is unbounded.
"The situation arises from the abso
lute lack of earnestness on the part of
one side of the great question there.
The Provisional Government is earnest
enough thoroughly so;, but with the
natives there is no such thing as earnest
ness. Why, when you talk of revolu
tion with a government oveilurned and
a queen deposed, you naturally expect
fieice strifes, bubbling passions and
rival leaders glaring at each other and
ready to cut throats. Hut there is no
such thing in Hawaii. The rival
leaders there are like contesting lawyers
in a couit. On the outside they fra
ternize, drink together and smoke to
gether. You expect that of lawyers;
but where, outside of Topsyttuveydom,
will you find it in the leaders of strug
gling 1 evolutionary factions?
"Think of this incident for opera
bouffe: One of the piinripal support
ers of the Queen, in complaining of
the situation said:
" 'Why, the other side has all the
aims. What can they expect ? Why
d m't they give ns one-half the arms,
and then we'd see what the outcome
"The proposition was seemingly
made in all seiiousness. Hut fancy the
deposed power in a kingdom thinking
that the party which had overturned
the Government should make a fail
division of the munitions of war and
then fight it out on the fair.
"The members of the Provisional
Government ft el that their properly,
their families and their happiness are
hanging in this balance, and so theie is
no question as to their seriousness.
Hut this very fact when brought into
contradistinction with the lack of seri
ousness on the pari of the natives
brings the opera bouffe featuies of the
revolution into still stronger relief.
"The natives are the kindliest, love
liest people in the world, and it is
this very kindliness and lovubleness
which makes them incapable of serious
ness. I can fancy no relation in which
a native was involved that would not
conclude with a smile and the offer of
a cigar. In this volatile natuie, how
ever lies the one danger of the Provis
ional Government. They cannot tell
what the natives will be moved to do at
any time. The men at the head of af
fairs do not care to perpetuate their
power. They wish to be rid of it as
soon as -their interests are protected.
They do not relish their roles in the
" Do you intend to do anything in
the nature of a libretto with the Hawai
ian situation as a theme f"
"I never have done anything in that
line. In all my plays there is no ver
sification and there are no puns which
seem to drift so much into light opera.
If I attempted anything in the nature
of a libretto it would necessarily be in
collaboration with some one else. I
have not written anything metrical.
My forte or metier is the drama, but
there is plenty of opera bouffe ni.iteii.il
right to the hand of any one who can
use it, and I may attempt it."
"Have you gathered anything on
your trip for a comfdy if you do not
try an opera ?"
"I have not traveled with any such
intention, though of couisc I may have
picked up bits here and theie which 1
might use upon occasion. Hut I am
not thinking of woik. I'm off on a
vacation taking a lest. I'm going to
see San Francisco, Oakland, Monterey,
San Jose and some other California
cities. Then I'll go to the Yoscmite,
which I expect to like very much.
After that I intend making the trip to
" I've been about the city some.
They tell me Edinbmgh is the most
beautiful city in the world. I never
have seen it, but I cannot conceive that
il is more beautiful than San Francisco.
1 find it impossible to believe that this
city has been built in foi ty years. The
inastciy of the hills is a inaivel to me
the immense amount of m.isonry
and energy required in the cable roads:.
And as for the views upon those hills,
they are beautiful beyond expression.

the question should now be looked at
entirely from this side. Do we want a
