A VOLCANIC ERUPTION IN HA
WAII. Viid Description of a Magnificent but
It has MCtl my good fortune to wit
ness une of the most terrific volianic
disiuilianr cs thai ate on record, and
the innouncemcni just made that the
same mountain in Hawaii is giving
evidence ol another eruption acfds a
new intcrtsl to my MperieMt.
The pretty little town of Honolulu,
where MiSsrs Stevens and Blount have
made their names famous, docs not
stand upon the larger island of the
the Sandwich croup, lis four dirt M
M.n.d. - v. ii,..inr, , 1 ' : . '

give its name to the nation and pLccd
their capital on the smaller Oahu.
But fur this precaution Honolulu might
long ere this h-vc suffered the fate of
Pompeii, or been abs. lulely destrojed
in B sea tit lava. For the greater Ha
waii is little inure than a group of vol
canoes, although I specially tomnirr.d
it to the traveler in whom a love of
nature may transcend the ruder attr.ic
lion nf Itade or politics.
It is not only the largest and grand
est of the islands, but historically the
must interesting, practically the least
tisi ful, and aninn the natural curiosities
unique. Yatehsmen on the I'ac fic
coast ; re lucky in having such a des
tination before them for a cruise, and
with a big American hotel at the foot
of Manna Kea, or overlooking Keala
kekua Hay, nothing but a little engineer
ing would be needed to make it a rich
pleasure rest rt, with just enough spice
of the terrible to give it an exieptional
I cannot promise always such con
ditions as those under which I first saw
Hawaii, but they may exist at any time,
and thtre will always be ample com
pensation for the visitor. An island
of some 4000 square milis, composed
entirely ol four volcanic mountains,
rising nearly 14,000 feet out of the
sta, with precipices sometimes over
hanging 2000 feet of perpendicular
reck, is at all times a picturesque
object of approach. Hut during ;.n
eruption, when fire and vapor ar d
molten tocks are being thrown 2000
feet into the air from numberless
iTQli r. flw .'i.l i( , 1 1 i I. ni.iA mil...-
in circumference, no imagination can
picture the scene.-. Lor such, indeed,
was happening when I had my first
introduction to this n m.11 kuble island.
A PINE CRUISING OROUND.
There is really no more enjoyable
cruising ground than the I'acihc.
YaChtmen who can think of nothing
but the Mediterranean, or at best the
civilized spots of Europe or the West
Indies, remind me of those all en
thusiastic fox hunters who "revel in
the glorious sport" when weather is
fine, and where fences are low, water
scarce and a good luncheon is part of
the program, but would shiver in a
Scotch mist and tremble before a bull
finch. To enjoy yachting it is positively not
necessary to drop snchor nowhere but
before a hospitable club house or in
the waters of some fashionable resort.
And when it is remembered that the
experiences to he had with a small
schooner in the waters between Amer
ica and Australia are such now as can
not all recur for the pleasure of another
generation, the piquancy should be in
1 teased. Already Pill and the Navi
gators have lost much of the charai ter
they had a few yiars ago, and many of
the lesser croups of islands have also
lost that element of insecurity which
within my recollection gave ztst to the
visit ashore. I here are, indeed, very
few left where the most amateurish
yachtsman would not have to offer
strong provocation before he could earn
a place in history by being tomahawked
1 had been two or three months
mingling pleasure with business amid
the islands of the Pacific, when late
one afternoon, after a sudden change of
wind, there came over evrry one on
board S vague feeling that something
was happening somewhere. The sea
was smooth, and the vessel, making
less than fmir km W under a full spread
of canvass, rose and fell languidly to
the I ong, peculiar roll of that ocean.
W e wire distant eighty miles or more
from Hawaii, and when darkness set in
our captain's prediction that an erup
tion was in progress there received
strong verification Befora sunset the
iky to Ihe eastward had been strangely
dark, even black; now it was lit up by
a niddy glare, and some ol us thought
e heard rumblings as of distant thun
der, only continuous and deep.
I I rOI I I HI 1 K OPTION.
It was at once agieed to change our
course and stand in for Hawaii, follow
ing almost exactly the track which
more than a century ago Captain Cook
had followed when he and his com
panions fell vktims to the cannibals of
Qwhyhce. Nob dy went below that
night The wind freshened for some
hours, Ihen fell away to a cjlm, or
blew in fitful gusts from different direc
tions in sticcessii n. Watchfulness was
rewarded. Hour by hour the light in
the east waxed blighter and the rum
bling sound grew 1, udci. At daylight
we were yet thirty miles fri 111 land, the
sky before us covered with a dense
bill k pall, intensified near the horizon.
The sea was Itrangfly troubled.
