LIVBRY, DRAYING AND
TEAMING TO ALL PARTS
OF THE ISLAND.
A Trip lo llio Volcano of Kllniicn
by (,'npiitln l.nlio.
On Monday, September t, 1902.
Sheriff I,. A. Andrews and Captain
II. T. Iike might have been seen
driving behind two spirited mules
afong the boatitifttl fern bordered
road to Hie volcano.
I Wc left Ililjpon the 7 a. in. train
J for Mountain View, the terminus
! of the railroad, where we found an
officer with the Sheriff's team
I awaiting our arrival. From the
terminus of the railroad to the
Volcano House is fourteen miles
of n dream of ferns, heavy foliage
and great creeping vines. The
morning was grand and it seemed
as if all nature was smiling at the
first appearance of the sun for a
week. It had been raining steadily
for n week, and the sun striking
the heavy foliage made the great
drops of dew look like immense
crystals dancing and sparkling in
ecstacy at the appearance of old
Sol. Here and there the saucy
miuah bird flew and paused on
some great leaf to caw a protest at
our intrusion. Numerous Japs
passing in stages would bow and
say comba and make a broad smile
(evidently glad to. sec us go out of
town, as they were on their way in).
Strange how those people smile
when they see me leaving town.
After a drive of a little over two
and a half hours we arrived at the
Volcano House, where we found
mine host Waldron ready to attend
to our wants. After seeing that
the mules were fed and housed wc
proceded to prepare for lunch, and
it was a very welcome sound to
hear the bell ring announcing it to
be ready. And did wc eat, well I
should say so; the bill of fare was
strictly up to date. We had three
different kinds of meat and my!
those vegetables grown-right.otit-side
the door, in fac I ate so much
beef and carrots that I really have
been ashamed to look a cow in the
face ever since. The Sheriff is a
man that don't say much, but eats
a whole lot, and I tell you he must
have been as hungry as I.
After lunch we strolled out to
the spacious verandah and got com
fortably settled in large armchairs
and the Sheriff proceeded to tell us
some stories of Hawaiian myths.
Sheriff Andrews is acquainted with
the myths and folk lore of Hawaii
and tells you stories of the ancient
Hawaiian in such a fascinating
way that you are really charmed.
I'erhnjirs you would like to hear
Once upon a time, so the legend
goes, I'ele (the goddess of the vol
cano) was very much incensed at
her consort, Kamapuaa, who was a
god from Oahu, and threatened to
destroy Hilo, Ilamakua and Ko
hala lands that she had given him.
At this Kamapuaa was very peni-
1 tent, and begged of Pelc not to
destroy his lands. She relented
and entered into a solemn covenant
Vith'Kamapuaa never to cross the
I Wailuku river.
Audit is a fact, she never Uias.
There have been numerous flows,
but none of them have ever crossed
the Wailuku. They have been
along the Puna side of the bank,
and oue has even flowed down the
center of the .stream, but none have
ever crossed it (you know lava is
very eccentric, stops for nothing
and sometimes crosses a stream
when it .seemingly could flow
smoother by continuing straight).
So tin; people of Hilo are safe. If
Pelc comes to Hilo all we have to
do is to go over to Puueo and there
we will be safe. As we sat there
we congratulated eacn otner tuat it
Pele got angry we could get out of
the way by doing the hot foot over
After a little we decided to go
down into the crater of Kilauea and
visit the crater itself. The crater
is many acres in extent and
has the appearance of a huge punch
bowl. Access to the crater is by
easy descent to a depth of
200 leet. we rode across lava,
sea of lava heaped up ami piled up
in every conceivable shape and
t , . , -. 1 1 ...
form. In some places it looks like
huge cables piled up and twisted
into curious shapes, 111 others it
looks like ancient abandoned castles,
and iu others like immense folds of
coarse cloth thrown together iu
confusion. In a word a pen is un
able to describe it all ns one would
have to note each peculiarity as he
sees it. In some places the path
lies betwecii huge piles of lava and
now and then we would have to
stop and admire the fantastical for
mation of the flow. Here and
there immense cracks in the lava
appeared from which was emitting
sulphurous vapor. I stopped and
held my handkerchief over one of
these cracks and in an instant it
At last wc reached the crater
itself, and taking a point of obser
vation on the brink, gazed down
900 feet and saw a sight that was
awe inspiring. The sea of molten
lava at the- bottom was about 500
feet in diameter. Here and there
fountains ol fire were spouting,
rising to a height of maybe 100
feet and throwing a spray of fire
that was grand to behold. You
talk about a Fourth of July pyro
tcchuical display, but Pele could
give it cards and spades and big
casino and then beat it out. Kvcry
now and then a roar would be
heard and it seemed that all the
imps in hell were playing with the
souls of the damned, and then a
little spark of fire would appear in
a crack followed by another nnd
another until it would all unite and
look like the firing line of a body
of troops firing in volleys. This
line of fire would gradually get
bigger and bigger, other lines
would appear out of the cracks and
then the whole would break up
with a mighty roar and the bottom
would be a sea of hissing, waving
and tempestuous molten lava. It
looked like pouring off time in n
gun factory or foundry.
We stood there for hours, riveted
to the spot, gazing in open wonder
at the work of One who holds the
universe in the palm of his hand,
and compared with it the mightiest
work of man looks like a mere
nothing. Dante's Inferno could
have been made more realistic if he
had journeyed to Kilauea.
A German lady tourist standing
near me, said in a broad German
accent, "Captain, dot looks like
hell, oh but it looks like hell."
"Well," I answered, "I have never
been to the headquarters of his
satanic majesty, but I guess it does
and if his quarters look anything
like this it must be a h of a
I place. LAKE.
