HH IAIL BULLETIN SUMMABj HOttOLttLU, H. L, SAOJUDAT, MARCH 'IMF, 1880.
SATURDAY, MARCH 27, 1880.
Consternation second only to what
might bo experienced over a posi
tive abrogation of the Treaty,
reigned ycstc-tlny when news by the
Kinau began to be circ .dated through
the town to the effect that the great
j)hysical phenomenon of the Ha
waiian Islands showed signs of pass
ing away. The reports, however
that the bottom had fallen out of
New Lake and llalemaumau and
that the Volcano is thereby shorn
of its fiery grandeur, have on in
quiry, proved to be considerably
exaggerated. Old residents say
that irregularities in the action of
the crater havo been of frequent
occurrence, and that the apparent
collapse of last week is but the
prelude to a grander outbreak in the
near future. A letter received
by Hon. S. G. Wilder, from Mr. J.
H. Maby, manager of the Volcano
House, dated March 8th, gives an
account of the phenomena, which
may bo considered authoritative.
Mr. Maby says :
Since last writing there has been
considerable of n change in the
crater. Saturday evening March
Cth both the Old and New Lakes
were unusually full and brilliant
looking from "tho House, and re
mained so until 9:30 r. M. of the
Cth instant, at which time there
commenced a series of earthquakes,
forty-three in number, lasting until
7:30 a. m. of the 7th.
Tho first three were slight, and
the fourth one quite severe ; and on
looking out upon the crater, all fire
has disappeared from tho New Lake.
At about 2 or 3" a. m. the fire had
also disappeared from llalemaumau.
During tho night, while the shaking
was going on, all hands were up in
the sitting-room, not knowing what
On the morning of the 7th, after
the mist and smoko had cleared
away, it was discovered that all the
bluffs surrounding llalemaumau had
disappeared during tho night. They,
and the path formerly traveled to
go from the New Lake to the old
one, and quite a piece on the moun
tain sido of the Old Lake, had all
fallen away, forming one large
There havo also been several rents
in the ground, one on the road to
Ifilauca Iki, and three on the Kcau
liou road. Two of them were cracks
across the road, which I have bridged
over. The other is a large hole
where there was a cave, and the
road bed had all fallen in. I have
cut a new path around it. No other
damage has been done that I have
heard of up to writing.
Last night March 7th all in tho
crater was in total darkness, except
ing a few small lights from previous
Mahcii 8th, 7 r. m.
My guide has just returned from
tho place of the burning lakes.
There is at present no fire to bo
seen. In the place where the New
Lake was there is a deep hole and
from there to Halcmauniau. All
that part formerly used as a path
. from tho New Lake to llalemaumau,
along with tho Little Beggar, havo
fallen in and form a deep valley.
At llalemaumau there is no fire to
be seen and no bottom.
From tho account that I had frdm
Mr. Lentz in 1880, just before the
Hilo flow, tho fire disappeared there,
leaving a bottomless pit for a week
or more, when the fire returned.
A VISITOn'S STORY.
' 'Mr. Charles Putnam, a returned
visitor to the volcano, on being inter
viewed, to-day, says: Wc went
down to the crater, two miles over
to the lava, to the edge of the lakes.
Wc could seo the bottom apparently
about 500 or COO feet down, filling
in with the debris which was tumbl
ing down in immense masses from
tho cliffs all round. Tho top of one
the lava tunnels had caved in near
the lake, and wc went down into it
and could sec on the one hand into
tho New Lake, and, on the other,
into tho tunnel which presented the
appearance of a red hot furnace,
with a thin crust over it, the lava
Laving flowed back into tho lake,
leaving the tunnel glowing hot. In
some spots no bottom was to bo seen.
Tho bridge between the two lakes
liad settled but had not gone com
The next day, wo went round the
cliffs outside the crater, to the sand
bluffs opposite tho hotel, and in
tended to go down the slope and get
back across the crater, but found
tho sand bluffs split, fissured and
cracked, tho sand crust under our
feet sounding very hollow, and
breaking through easily, while jets
of steam were coining up through
tho cracks. The guides said it was
too dangerous to go forward, and
wo got back on to the bluffs. As
far as wc could sec along the plain,
tho surfaco was cracked and steam
jets coming up everywhere. The
sulphurous steam round the Vol
cano House was coming out hotter
and stronger than ever known be
fore. It was conjectured by some that
1iq earthquake bad opened a now
for the Invn,
and that the outlet
may, In time,
become clogged and cause a return
of the lava and of the action of tho
crater to their former conditions.
This, of course, is only one of many
theories on the matter.
THE TEMPERANCE CAMPAICN.
There was a pretty full attendance
at the Y. M. C. A. Hall, last even
ing, to hear Mr. Win. Noble speak
on tho moderate drinker. The
address was pointed and practical.
The next lecture of the course will
be delivered, at the same place, this
evening. Mar. 25th.
A Woman's Siillbriiigs ami
A. Voice from .A-ustrln.
Near the village of Zillingdorf, In
Lower Austrln, Uvea Maria Haas, an In
telligent and Industrious woman, whoso
story of physical sullcrlng and llnal re
lief, as related by herself, is of interest
to English women. " 1 was employed,"
she says, " In the work of n largo farm
house. Ovcr.work brought on sick
headache, followed by a deathly faint
ing and sickness of the stomnch, until I
was umiblo to retain cither food or
drink. I wns compelled to take to my
bed for several weeks. Gottlng a little
better from rest and quiet, I sought to
do somo work, but was soon taken with
a pnin in my side, which in a little
while seemed to spread over my whole
body, and throbbed In my every limb.
This was followed by a cough and
shortness of breath, until finally I could
not sew, and I took to my bed for tho
second, and, as I thought, for tho last
time. My friends told mc that my timo
had nearly come, and that I could not
llvo longer than when the trees put on
their green once more. Then I happen
ed to get one of tho Sclgcl pamphlets.
I read it, and my dear mother bought
me a bottle of Scigel's Syrup, which 1
took exactly according to directions,
and I had not taken tho whole of It be
fore I felt a great change for the better.
My last Illness began Juno H, 1882, aud
continued to August flth, when 1 began
to tako the syrup, very soon I could
do a little 1 ght work. Tho cough left
mc, and I was no more troubled in
bcathlng. Now I am perfectly cured.
And oh, how happy 1 am I I cannot ex
press gratitude enough for Scigel's
Syrup. Now I must tell you that the
doctois In our district distributed hand
bills cautioning people ngalnst tho
medicine, telling them It would do them
no good, and many were thereby inllu.
euced to destroy the Seigcl pamphlets;
but now. wherever one is to bo found, it
is kept like a relic. The fow preserved
are borrowed to read, and I havo lent
mine for six miles around our district.
People havo come eighteen miles to get
mc to buy the medicine for them, know
ing that it cured mc, and to bo sure to
get the right kind. I know a woman
who was looking like death, and who
told them there was no help for her,
that she had consulted several doctors,
but none could help her. 1 told her of
Seigcl's Syrup, and wrote tho mime
down for her that she might make no
mistake. She took my advico and the
Syrup, and now she Is in perfect health,
and the peoplo around us are amazed.
The medlclno has inado such progress
in our neighborhood that peoplo say
they don't want tho doctor nny more,
but thoy tako tho Syrup. Sufferers from
cout who wero confined to their bed nnd
could hardly movo a linger, havo been
cured by it. There is a girl in our dis
trict who caught a cold by going
through somo water, and was m bed llvo
years with costivencss and rheumatic
pains, una liau to nave an attendant to
watch by her. There was not a doctor
in .the surrounding districts to whom
her mother had not npplied to relievo
her child, but every one crossed them
selves nnd said they could not help her.
Whenever the llttlo bell rung which is
rung in our place when somebody is
dead, wo thought surely it was for her,
but Seigcl's Syrup and Pills saved her
life, and now she is as healthy as any.

even in tho fields. Everybody was as
tonished when they saw her out, know
ing how many years sue had uccn in
bed. To-day she adds her gratitude to
mine for God's mercies and Seigcl's
Syrup. Maiua Haas."
Tho people of England speak confirm,
