The return of Jack F.aston, James Sis-
sou and Franklin ami Hastings Howlaud
from a trip to Mokuaweoweo Wednesday
night ended the first successful effort to
reach the suininmlt from Hilo.
The party left Hilo at 2:20 a. ill. last
Saturday. They rode to Aiualio by 1:30
that nfl. ruoou and made the balance of
the trip on loot. They lelt Aiualio nt 3
o'clock p. in. Siturday and camped that
night within six miles of Dewey ciater.
Sunday they tramped all day through aa
and slept that night in n steam cave
about four and one-half miles from the
crater. Monday morning they arrived at
the crater at 9:50, having made the trip
from Hilo' in just fifty-five hours, the
record time to the tcp (rom this place.
Jack Eastou said the walking was tough
and that all the latter end of the trip
must he made through the fiercest kind of
aa. In the cave a few miles from the
summit Mr. Eastou said their slumbers
were disturbed in the night by ominous
sounds from the interior of the moun
tain. The sounds were us of heavy rocks
falling and the whole neighborhood was
covered with steam cracks which were
new to some of the party who were
familiar with the country.
The S. S. Rosecrans, P. Johnson mas
ter, arrived from Sin Francisco via Ho
nolulu on Wednesday afternoon with a
cargo of general merchandise amounting
lo $7i75-77- The steamer is somewhat
larger than the Enterprise and built on
handsomer lines. She is specially fitted
up to carry oil, and her cargo for Hono
lulu consisted of 24,000 barrels of crude
oil, the residue of cargo being consigned
to this port. She made the run to Hono
lulu in ten days, and overtook the Kinau
in her trip to Hilo. The only passengers
from Honolulu were P. Peck, Ronald
Kennedy, R. I. Lillie ami C. II. lleutley
and wife. Captain Johnson was formerly
in command of the Roderick Dim, uiak-,
ing regular runs between Hilo and the
Coast. Thi is his first visit to this port
in the Rosecrans, and his many friends
miss his genial smile and presence. 'He
is much pleased with his new ship and
prefers life aboard a steamer to a wind
jammer. The Rosecrans leaves today at
noon with a cargo of bananas, and ex
pects to make a quick trip to 'Frisco.
llenmcr Party Returns.
P. C. llcamer, John Jaucway and C. D.
Chadd left Hilo Wednesday. October 14,
for the crater, and after a seven-day trip
arrived again in Hilo. This party had a
splendid view of the crater by descend
ing to the lower slopes or floors which
circle the north side of the crater. The
round trip was made in seven days at an
expense of not more than f 1 per day for
each of the party. They camped Wed
nesday night at Kaumana, Thursday at
Haleahoha, Friday at the Koa Grove,
Saturday night near the Dewey crater,
and lauded at the summit Sunday after
noon at 4:30. Mr. Janeway, who is an
experienced surveyor, estimated the lava

D. L. Jones, II. Gerlach, Carl Giddings
and P. Dorlaud ot Olaa returned last
Monday from a trip to the crater. On
their way up the slope they encountered
a heavy rain and snow storm but made
the trip without mishap. The Jones party

Captain P. Johnson of the S. S. Rose
crans entertained n small party of friends
at dinner at Demosthenes Cafe on his ar

Housing Meeting Until In
Fully five hundred people gathered nt
the corner of Church and Front streets
last Siturday evening to hear the princi
ples of Republicanism expounded by the
candidates for various county offices and
other campaign speakers. The Hilo
baud, led by a (laming transparency
bearing the party mottoes, paraded the
main streets and played selections belore
and between speeches, Mr. W. C. Cook
of lMpalkou presided as chairman of the
meeting and in turn introduced the sev
eral candidates and. speakers, among
whom were the following- Representa
tive Jas. I), Lewis; George II. Williams,
candidate for County Assessor; C. A.
Stoble, candidate for County Treasurer;
Jos. Vierrn, W. II. Lambert and S. L.
Desha, candidates for Supervisors; all of
whom spoke briefly and to the point.
Mr. Chas. M. LcDloml made n telling
speech, sparkling with wit and wisdom,
acquired from long years of experience
as a political stump speaker. As a Dem
ocrat, however, he said he felt it his duty
to vote and support the ticket which
stood for stability, honesty and integrity
which the Republican unminers in this
campaign represented. His remarks were
listened to closely ami were received
with a round of applause. Other speak
ers on the platform were Sheriff Andrews,
E. N. Holmes, W. S. Wise, W. H. Smith
and Den Drown.
'lo Lslnblish Fruit Cannery.
Mr. C. H. Dcutley of Sail Framiisco,
representing the California Fruit Can
tiers' Association, is in the city canvass
ing the possibilities of the establishment
ot a fruit cannery in Hilo or vicinity.
The association already has over thirty
factories in the State of California and
seeks a location in the islands, where
pineapples, guav.is and other tropical
fruit can be successfully put up. They
are prepared, provided they receive the
proper encouragement and support, to
""'1 " cannery with an output of 50,000
1 eases. IIe "'' the climate and soil
! auapteu to growing pineapples and the
pities grown here are as fine a flavor and
quality ns can be found anywhere.
If he can make contracts witli growers
for a term of live 01 more years the asso
ciation wilt feel warranted in going to
the expense of erecting n factory. This
is one of the fields open to the small
farmer, and there are many individual
growers of this and other island fruits
whose products could be utilized if such
11 factory were established,
Mr. lleutley is brimming over with facts
and figures in regard to the industry,
which has been to a great extent neglect
ed in the islands.
A meeting of the Hilo Agricultural
Society will be held at the office of Mr.
Chas. Furucaux on Saturday at 1 p. m.
when all members are invited to attend
mid meet Mr. Heutley.
The Elks' Dunce.
The Elks' Club, D. P. O. E., opened
their clubroom doors to the ladies and
friends of the lodge on last Friday even
ing by giving a select dance. The hall
was tastily decorated with bamboo, palms
and sumac blossoms, am) when the white
smooth canvas was stretched over the
floor it proved to be a delightfully cool
and pleasant place for dancing. The Ha
waiian quartette club furnished music for
the evening and lovers of dancing tripped
to tuneful measures until the small hours
of the night. For those who preferred
cards an innovation in the shape of n
pedro tournament was introduced and the
contest for prizes waxed warm and lotig.
Mr. and Mrs. E. D. Baldwin proved an
invincible team and succeeded in over
coming all other players, respectively
carrying off the gentleman's and lady's
prize. Delicate fruit and wine punches
were conveniently placed in a recess in
the main hall, where the dancers mid
others could find refreshment and rest
from the merry whirl of feet. Sand
wiches were served during the evening,
which closed as the Elks' nffairs usually
do as another success added to the list of
their hospitable entertainments.
A very pleasant little dancing party
was given by Mr. and Mrs. Keith F.
Mackie at their residence 011 Pitman
street last Monday evening. Mrs. Tracy
presided at the niano and the dancim?
occupied the evening until a late hour.
Saudwiches und punch were served, be -
sides other refreshments. Among those
present were Mesdames Stacker, Pearson,
Muuiby, Fitzgerald, Hall, Loebensteiu

Sal-'Suitors From Lost .Ship Potion Light
Attracted ty the fire ol the volcano of
Mauna I.oa, eight shipwrecked men in a
small boat pitt Into port nt Kailuu on the
west coast of .Hawaii at 2:15 o'clock Wed
nesday afternoon. They wercpirtof
the crew oC the French sailing ship
Cniiuetable dc Rlcheiiiout which they
report grounded and went to pieces on
the rocks of the French Frigate Shoals
011 October toth. The crew, consisting
of the captain, mate and twenty-two men,
seeing they must abandon the vessel,
alter provisioning three ships boats, put
to sea nt 4 o'clock in the afternoon of the
10th. There were eight men assigned to
a boat, and by rowing and with the nid
of an improvised sail the three small
craft were nble to keep together until the
second night out when a blinding storm
separated them, and the tempest tossed
boat and seven .seamen in command of
the first mate made land nt Kailua Tues
day afternoon, after being eleven dnys at
sea. Owing to the fact that nil those
who arrived nt Kailua spoke only French,
and were more or less exhausted from
their long journey in an open boat, the
details arc somewhat meagre.
The French Frigate Shoals arc near
Laysou Island, northwest by north of
Hawaiian Islands and distant from Kai
lua about thirteen hundred miles. For
tunately they were well supplied with
food and water and arrived in fairly good
condition, with no casualties.
Of the two other boats, the one in
charge of the Captain is reported to have
arrived safely at Honolulu, The third
boat has not yet been seen or heard from,
but since the conditions were the same,
no great apprehension is felt ns to the
safety of the remainder of the crew. The I
steamer Iwilaui called yesterday at Kai I
lu.i and has taken the eight men to Ho-'
uolulu, where they expect to join their
captain ntid await the arrival of the bal-,
a nee of the crew. It appears the light of
the volcano, which is visible many miles 1
at sea, acted as a beacon to guide the
drifting crew to safety. 1
