FOUR DAYS OF ACTIVITY
ANOTHER OUTBREAK OCCURS
Madame I'clc, the grim Goddess of Kilauea's fiery furnaces, on Feb
ruary 22nd, came forth from her cavernous abyss and added her share
in celebrating the birthday of the Father of our country. For four days
she played her pyrotechnics, sending" tons of molten lava high into the
nir, and playing with hugh fragments of solidified rock as though she
were scattering feathers before the wind. With rythmic and hideous
noise, the echoes of slushing, sloshing, dashing and lushing luva could
be heard surging amidst the dark fastnesses below, as Pete turned loose
her hounds of fire. Old Vulcan sent his sparks scattering across the
cloak of darkness, while Pluto held sway in his realm of cold, bleak and
cheerless waste, where the God of Fire in an unbridled fury had spent
his spleen. For the nonce, when standing on the trembling edge of the
yawning depths of this House of Fury, one realizes what a pygmy he is
as compared to the giant forces of the nether world that hold his destiny
as within the swing of the pendulum.
A Tribune representative went down into the crater on Friday even
ing in company with a large party of Hiloitcs, who had that afternoon
come up by train from Hilo. He fflind the activity centered on the cast
side of Hale-maumau, in the direc ion of Tuna. Apparently the fires
LATER Just as the TRIBUNE goes to press a tele
phone message from the Volcano House brings the news
of renewed activity, more grand if possible than before.
Parties returning from the crater report that the fire has
burst through the landslide which choked the lava flow
and a magnificent fountain "is playing continuously, the
extent of the opening in the side wall being 250 feet in
length by 100 feet in width.

Ullo, April 16, xqoi . 14. J K, F, MACKIE, Secretary,
had found a vent through a couple of fissures about one hundred feet
from the bottom of the crater underneath quite an extensive ledge. The
two fissures came together in a point forming an angle of about 65 de
grees. The length of the two fissures were over 100 feet taken together.
From the apex of the angle, a lava flow ran down the side of the crater
forming a lake at the bottom of Hale-maumau of possibly two acres or
more. These two fissures retained their incandescent appearance all the
time, and at intervals from' three to five minutes apart would belch forth
huge volumes of lava, sending skyward for a distance of 60 or 70 feet
red hot boulders' and fiery rocks, Wo.jch in turn would fall back against
the side of the cliff and with leaps and bounds find their way to the bot
tom of the pit. It is the opinion of the Tribune representative that
there is a lake or fiery cauldron behind the east wall.of Hale-maumau
that finds vent or outlet through the fissures above referred to, for at
differcht times and in fact almost continuously, explosions and the sound
of rushing lava could be heard with no apparent manifestations discern
able at the mouth of the fissures.
About five hundred feet to the left, ancTbn the northeast wall of the
pit, at about the same height, there could be seen a' bright red spot,
from .which black smoke was emitted in large volumes. There was no
flow or spouting from this latter aperature which rather indicates that
the activity is general along the same level.
The Tribune representative visited the crater again on Saturday
morning and was better able to distinguish the location of the eruption.
As far as could be made out no active-lake or cone had been formed, but
the flow seemed to come from underneath a cleft of rocks. On Saturday
night it was found that the over-h nging ledge had fallen in, and while
there was no flow or eruption under way, two bright spots of fire could
plainly be seen through the debris, indicating that the fire is temporarily
smothered and will probably break forth again as soon as the gases be
come strong enough to force an exit. The hot cracks, over which the
tourists often boil a cup of tea or scorch postal cards have become more
extensive in area, and have moved a little to the northward. Pete's
Reception Room, which in former days was like a hot oven, has now
cooled to a temperature in which one may rest with comparative case
and may be explored for a hundred feet or more without- feeling any
ill effects from the heat. She has established over among the hot cracks
a Devil's Kitchen in which the guide tells you she prepares her fiery
luaus and roasts the legion of departed souls of those who were not good.
Madam Pele is not the only one that reigns supreme around Kilauea.
Lycurgus, more familiarly known as Demosthenese, reaches the heart of
man in an epicurean way, while Pele caters to the allurements of the
mind and strikes awe to the soul. The Volcano House under the
management of Lycurgus has been trausforncd as far as painting and
new furniture can do. It has been completely renovated, and fresh
paint has brightened up the dark corners. The fire place in the billiard
room has been remodeled, and a painting of Kileaua in its prime by ar
tist E. Fuhr adorns the front panel. A soft bed now awaits the traveler
wearied by sight seeing, and his head rests on soft pillows. No longer
as he turns over in bed is he awakened by the crunch and crack of a
corn-husk mattress nor does he feel rheumatic or have to straighten the
kinks out of himself as formerly when he rises in the morning. White
enamel bed-steads, bureaus and washstands, and new rugs uow adorn
the bed rooms. With plenty of water, a cuisine that cannot be improved
upon, and all the comforts of home, one cannot ask for more. The par
lor and reception room with their rugs and fire-places; the dining room
with its cozy library lamps shedding a red glow over all the tables and
a stove that removes the chill from the frosty air; and the grounds with
their violets and roses, make the Volcano House a most attractive resort.
A new cottage has been built in front of the left wing of the Hotel, and
will shortly be ready for occupancy. A gas plant will also be in full sway,
so that the days of candles and kerosene lamps will soon be a thing of
the past More furnishings are expected soon to replace some of the old
nieces that have long since become antique. The rapid changes within
the last few months have placed the Volcano House on a standing, of
which Hilo and the whole Territory should be justly proud.
The table and accomodations are all that the heart could desire, Fresh
vegetables from the Volcano House garden daily supply the larder with
asparagus, cauliflower, potatoes, radishes, headed lettuces, strawberries,
rhubarb and other table delicacies. The recent cold snap came near
ruining Lycurgus' garden, but he had taken precautions for the pro
tection of his plants from frost and continues to serve the best the season
affords. Water is plentiful from the storage tanks which have recently
been installed, so that the tourist can want for nothing that cannot be
