First to Make the Trip Return Satisfied, But
Advise Their Sisters Not to Make the Jaunt.
The Crater Was Active as Ever Lqst Tuesday Night, With Lava
Spreading on Main Crater Floor-Generally Believed There
Will Be No Outbreak on the Mountain Side This Year.
Wednesday morning at seven
o'clock, this week, the Mokimweo
weo crater was still leading a stren
uous life. At that hour the la-est
party to make the ascent of the
mountain, including two ladies,
ifrs. Q. H. Berry and Mrs. V. L.
Howard of Honolulu, started on
their home trip. At 5 o'clock
Wednesday evening they were at
the Volcano House, having been in
the saddle eight hours, and having
ridden over a trail, a large part of
which was as the anarchy of count
less volcanic eruptions had left the
gtfirled and seamed and pitted sides
of Mattna Loa. The eight hours'
ride represented a descent of nearly
10,000 feet in altitude, and covered j P1"1; between glimpses at the I at the left end of the lake was also
a winding course of perhaps forty-' spouting lava the wood proposition ! remarkable. It had grown into a
five miles altogether. The home was variously discussed. Quick in symmetrical pyramid of respectable

Not a single misstep was made in 'anai of this charming piece of I The sprays of fire leaped constantly

rider. The down trip followed a ', indescribable red fluid fire below, selves and disappeared in the dark-
night on the brink of the crater
nearly 14,000 feet above the sea,
where the party watched the play-1
ful antics of molten fire in a tetu- j
perature midway between zero and
freezing. Depending on a supply
of wood previously taken up by the
guide, but burned by another party
which arrived at the summit Mon
day, the night was an utittsuallv
severe one for both men and women.
By searching diligently enough
sticks were found to boil beef tea on
Tuesday evening and enough to
make a pot of coffee next morning.
Tlie party included the two
ladies above mentioned. Dr. M.
Wachs, Geo. M. Robertson, R. U.
Knight and the editor of the Tiu
iiunr. They left the Volcano
House Sunday afternoon and camp
ed that night at Ainapou, where
Julian Mousarrat, manager of the
Kapapala ranch had ordered that
the comforts of the dairy station be
placed at the disposal of the ladies.
A short ride Monday brought the
party to the last camp within six
houts ride of the summit. Here
tents were pitched. Next morning !
early, everything was packed and !
the start was made for the crater at
6:25. At 12:25 the camp at the
summit was reached. The climb
up the mountain was one that will
repay any one who enjoys a rough
outing, whether the crater is active
or inactive. In many places the
mountain side appears so rough
and steep and so cut tip with every
form and shape of lava, as to be
impassable for any beast except the
mountain goat. Yet the trip is
made with comfort and in our case
was not marred hy the slightest
accident. The ladies rode the tortu-
soon learneu to trust tneir steeds
which could stick to pahoehoe as a
fly sticks to a pane of glass. I
Upon arrival at the summit the.
guide announced that the wood I
supply, including a tent pole, had '
been burned. This left us in what I
seemed at the moment a hopeless
Everything in the outfit, including
saddle blankets, boots and slickers,
were spread upon the stones. The
",ea was to secure some of the effect
and comfort obtainable from a
Turkish divan and ameliorate to a
degree the disturbing hardness and
sharpness of a-a and pahoehoe,
when used in place of a mattress.
Rolled up in blankets the spectators
viewed the scene of fire through
The general picture was as lias
been described in this paper and
others. The main action was in
the center where the heaviest foun
tains were hurling to great heights
their burden of hot boulders and
molten lava. In this center was an
enormous cone behind which, the
fiery forces played as gunners be
hind impregnable barricades. At
the left, near the edge of the lake
of fire was a small volcanic cone in
process of formation. To the ex
treme right was a still smaller cone,
whose peculiarity was that it belch
ed fire of an entirely different color
from the others. This lire was like 1
molten silver while the spray of the
fountains was like red blood under
During the night, a tremendous
explosion occurred, completely de
molishing the large central cone
which was so conspicuous the even
ing before. The effect of litis ex-
plosion was far more grand than
tiiat ol spouting lava. The sides
of the immense cone were shattered;
they crumbled and melted away in
the liquid waves of fire that had
built them up. A great bombshell
an hundred times more powerful
than are made for warring navies
j would be feeble in
pared to the force

building since the beginning of the
The morning of Wednesday saw
the central cone replaced by a dozen
lively geysers, which patiently set
about to erect another. That morn-
I ing the transformation in the cons
ncss, only to be followed by dozens
and scores of other fairies, who
kept up the fire dance all night.
These smaller sprays or fountains
were independent from the giant
upspurting of geysers whose height
has been variously estimated by ob
servers to be from 200 to 600 feet.
These big fellows were playing a
game of their own. They were
building cones, then kicking them
over. They were sending up the
