of Edyth Tozier Weotherrcd that
Kilauea should be made a nationa
park, is also advocated in Wash'
ington by A. B. Ioebcnstein Hilo's
representative on the committee
sent from the Territory to work
in the interest of the Refund Bill.
The Washington Post of Feb. 6
"Albert B. Loebenstein, of Hilo,
Hawaii, who is stopping at the
New Willard, has traveled 6000
miles with the avowed object of, suninit of MauuatfI,oa.
inviting the United States govern
ment to commit the larceny of a
volcano. The volcano is the pro
perty. a corporation composed, of
American citizens, unde,r,the.,terms
ofalcaduly executed and recorded
which, lease, has yet six years to
run. Apparently the fiery cone is
dissatisfied with the terms, of the
lease, for it has actually moved itself
bag and baggage oft the leased
tract, and is now serenely doinc
business, on government land at a
safe distance beyond the boundary
"Mr. Loebenstein wants the
government to take advantage of
the situation by laying claim to,the
volcano, because it happens to have
left the reservation and, wandered
pver onto , government, land, and
making it the star feature of a
national park. Yet a prominent
lawyer in Washington says the
government has no more right to
the volcano than it would to a
steer, that had broken out , of,its
pasture and strayed upon public
"This singular situation has been
developed through the sole eccentric
city of what is otherwise the most
ladylike and well-behaved, volcano
in the world. The volcano in
which stands on the southeast;
flank of Mauna Ioa, the world's
greatest volcanic mountain, on the,
Island of Hawaii.
"Measured.frotr sea, level, Mauna
Loa is a vast, rounded dome 14,000
feet high. f Measured from the
bottom of the ocean it has an alti
tude of more than six miles, and
bos a base 160 miles in diameter.
"Kilauea is a separate peak, or
gather .it is a mere bump or excre
scence on the side of the great
mountain at an elevation of 3000
feet. In the top of this hump is a
crqter nine miles it circumference.
The floor of the crater is a lake of)
lava that has cooled off. Inside
this crater is still another crater
called Halemaumau, which is a
boiling seething iRke of molten
lava. At the present, time the
mpjtenlake is. ?5ot?y i5o,feet and its
surface is j 50 feet below the level
of the larger crater, but both area
and depth very greatly.
"Kilauea and, in fact, jill ,o( Ma
una 03, which has a vast crater
on s summty caHcd, Mokuaweoweo
is a refined volcano of irreproach
able deportment, which ha9 never

ous and vulgar explosives, like
acquire the volcano and make it
accessible for .tourists. The com
pany leased a tract six miles square
from Mrs. C R. Bishop, a woman
of royal lineage, who married an
American who became one of the
mpst.jprominent financiers in the
Hawaiian Islands, built a hotel with
accommodation for 150 guests, on
the rim of the crater, constructed a
railroad from Hilo to a point within
an hour's drive of the Volcano
House, and a bridle path to the
as it was
vel. j . , . .
"The crater of Halemaumau, when
the base was executed, stood on
the tract of land called Keauhou.
Since the first survey was made, in
1873, Halemaumau has moved
soiith along .the floor of Kilauea's
crater 1783 feet, and has crossed
the, (boundary line of Keauhou into
Kapapala, which is not included
in the lease.
"Mr. Loebenstein is able to give
exact figures, because he is a civil
engineer, who was recently engaged
to make a topographical survey of
the region. It should be under
stood that the inner crater of
Halemaumau has not disappeared
in one place, and, broken out in a
new-spot, DUt mat u uas worccu
