"What would you consider a fair
estimatoof its nrea?" was next asked.
''Well, its irregular proportions
would hardly admit of anything but
a rough guess. I should think it
about thrcc-fouths of a mile in length
mid probably about the same in
"In what latitude and longitude
would you describe it to be?"
"Well, I will tell you about that,"
said tho Capiaiu. "You see, I mado
calculations, but'not knowing what
might have happened there since, I
wouldn't like to have them pub
lished, as they would, perhaps, mis
lead other navigators."
"Did yon meet any other sailors
who had seen the land recently
thrown up?" asked tho reporter.
"Cadtain Anderson of the Matthew
Turner said he had also observed
it," replied the Captain. "His
oservation was made about' the same
time as mine, but the island was then
a mass of lire and s,mokc, and not
yet in a. compact state. He said that
he had sailed over the same spot now
occupied by the island two or three
times during the previous season."
"What do tho natives have to say
in regard to the phenomenon?"
"Their information," said the
Cantain, "cannot generally be de
pended upon, and their knowledge of
time days, weeks and months es
peecially seems to be sadly deficient.
They say, though, that the eruptions
began about half a year ago and have
contiuuad intermittantly. This state
ment has been partly born out by
reports of white men, but all is vague
and unsatisfactory. One thing is
certain, a new island has been form
ed, and navigators sailing those seas
caunot be too particular about the
manner in which they approach
The Captain went on to say that
the island of Bogoslov had been un
inhabited by natives and was barren
of vecctation, the capture of the sea-
lions being the only industry engaged
in, and that wholly by natives. A
remarkable 'assertion in this connec
tion, and one which will probably not
lie credited by some, is in regard to
the sea-lions." Many of them were
reported as having been killed by the
volcanic eruptions and the sea was
said to be swarming with these ani
mals. The greater portion of those
still alive were hairless, the heat to
which they had been subjected hav
ing removed their outer fur render
ing those caught in this vicinity of
no value to the hunter.
Some of the ashes which fell at
Ounalaska were examined by the re
porter. They were peculiar in their
lightness and cottony appearance,
and the statement of their having
been borne thirty miles in the air by
a light wind may be easily credited.

to as having sent the first information
