TUESDAY, MARCH 5)0, 1880.
A TRIP TO THE VOLCANO.
Tho Land Journey Arrival at
OFF Toil THE VOLCANO.
In the morning,
owing to cir
n portion of the party, it was voted
to proceed on our journey to the
Volcano. Accordingly, tho landlord,
who is also proprietor of the land
part of this route, almost imme
diately after breakfast, announced
the train as ready for the first stage.
The motive power consisted of four
mules in tandem, the car a trolly
fitted up with a carriage beat and a
goods box, the track the iron tram
way winding high up among the lava
beds to the Pahala plantation, the
conductor and engineer a strong Por
tuguese laborer, who ran all the way
up, urging on the caravan, regard
loss of his bare feet on the fearfully
rugged trackside. The ground
traversed in this four miles of the
route presents, close on both hands,
and far into the distance on the sea
sido, a scene full of evidence of
prodigious volcanic action, some of
it apparently very recent, the more
ancient work being toward the moun
tain slopes. For the major pait of
the distance the ground is covered
with immense beds of aa, which is
the term for the loose bouldeis,
stones, gravel, etc., cast up by vol
canic disturbances and distributed
by tho flowing lava. A vast field of
pahoehoe, tho congealed pure lava,
extends down to the sea and away
up the coast out of sight towaul
Puna, its black, shiny crust, from
which it is named (nahochoo being
the nativo word for "glistening"),
showing it to be a modern product.
Mr. Carter leaves us at Pahala,
where a mule four-in-hand attached
to a confortable covered coach is
- wiiting to carry us ten miles further,
to the Halfway House, leased by Mr.
' Lee and managed by his younger
brother, Mr. Jens M. Lee, with his
newly-married wife of a week. The
junior Lee is a recent arrival in the
country, and a well-educated and
handsome-looking young man. He
was once a shorthand reporter in the
Norwegian Legislature, and later
corresponding clerk in a bank, the
failure of which induced him to go
to America, coming thence to visit
his bi other and try his fortune here.
At this rest our party had a sub
stantial lunch, departing more than
satisfied with the faro at such an
isolated wayside inn. Mr. Lee cul
tivates vegetables about the house,
besides raising poultry and indul
ging in an occasional hunt after
plover and wild turkey, and his wife
being an adept at cookery, very
wholesome and palatable refreshment
is assured the tourist on reaching
this mountain hotel. Tho remain
der of the journey, eleven or twelve
miles, is done on muleback, active,
sure-footed and well-broken animals
giving safe transport over a pretty
rugged sea of lava hummocks.
It began raining soon after our
leaving the Halfway House, and was
pouring the greater part of the way
to the Volcano. The heavy weather
made it impossible to sec anything
beyond tho immediate vicinity of
tho trail. Coming abruptly to the
edge of the great crater of Kilauea,
a very misty view was had of the
interior. A little smoke could be
seen at a point that looked more
rugged than the rest of the black
bed of lava, while clouds of steam
were rolling up everywhere over the
surface. Jogging along a mile or
so, on tho margin of tho towering
bluffs, we go down a short, steep
bank on to a small plain of 100 to
150 acres in extent, rough guess.
This area is wonderful enough in
itself, bearing evidences of tho
workings of nature underneath suf
ficiently impressive, as a iirst view
of living volcanic action, to one who
did not know whether tho visible
manifestations were the resulta of
the recent collapso in tho adjoining
crater or were an old adjunct of the
establishment. Along both sides of
this area steam was hissing up
through tho ground in large volumes.
As we piocecdcd tho wind blew the
warm vapor across our faces, whilo,
looking down, chinks in tho very
road were emitting an intimation
jhat tea wits ready m tbo basement,
AsccnWig a 'step "hill nt the end of
this very dcslrablo site for a steam
laundry, tho Volcano House is re
vealed in tho center of a narrow
green terrace, with a high bank
sloping up in the rear and a jump
ing off place, over a cliff of several
hundred feet, about fifty yards in
front. This is a more vaporous
area than that just left. From the
left, and rear, and front, dense
clouds of steam are rolling upward
through the gloom of advancing
evening added to the already dense
atmosphere. This, indeed, must be
tho roof of Madame Pole's wash
house, but we are going to take the
risk of the boilers bursting in the
meantime, therefore gladly resign
our mules to the care of the guides
and enter the house, where Mr.
John II. Maby and his wife, with
pleasant faces, welcome us to a
roaring wood fire on an old-fashioned
hearth, with a warm dinner follow
ing. Learning that it is not true,
what w e had heard on the a ay, that
there had been twenty-two shocks
of earthquake felt a week after the
collapse, and that a gaping rent had
opened close to the threshold of the
hoiibc, tho photographer and I
abandoned the resolution formed on
a discussion of those reports whilo
tiding along, of sleeping outdoors
under the light of the moon, with an
eye and car open for symptoms of
possible catastrophe. The following
entrv by Mr. Maby, keener of the
Volcano House, appears on tho
Marcli 7th, 188C From June
20th, 1885, up to December 15th,
both the old and new lakes were
very active in the way of boiling
and surging away from one side to
the other. And in December, about
the 15th-20th, the new commenced
to build for itself a wall which car
ried the surface of the lake up to
100 or 150 feet higher, by the lirst
of March, 188G, than the surface
had formerly been.
"On the evening of the 6th of
Mai ch at 7 r. m. , both the old lake,
'laufca lias become "extinct? If so,
all w e can say is wo wish it had re
mained alive until our arrival."
Rev. Ldwaid P. Baker, of the
Protestant church, Ililo, on the 18th
iust. descended to within fifty feet
of the bottom of Ilalemnumnu,
abandoning the . intention of going
all the way becauso stones wero
shooting out of tho side. He says:
" Where is tho lava which has de
parted from Kilauea? Echo answers
where. Some fuluic report from
the Puna seacoast may give an
answer. Meantime we can think of
it as having entered and cooled in
underground cavities nnd channels.
No one should dogmatize, but the
experience of 18C8, along with the
fact that the fires of Kilauea aro not
known to have found vent in any
other place, gives fair reason for
hoping, perhaps believing, that
thoso fires will return to their old

Ilnlcinaiimnu, and the new lake were
quite full of boiling and surging
lava, and very brilliant as seen
from the verandah of the House,
and continued to letnain so up to
9:30 i m. At which time there
commenced a scries of earthquakes,
A3 in number and lasting until 7 :I10
a. m. After the third or fourth
shake, in looking out upon the
crater, there was nothing to be seen
of the new lake and only a slight
reflection from the old lake. At the
hour of between 2 and 3 a. m. of
the 7th all lire and lights in the
crater had disappeared, excepting
a few sparks from previous flows
around on the floor of the main
"At 8 a. 3t. on the 7th, after the
mist and steam had cleared aw ay,
it was discovered -that all the bluffs
surrounding Halemaumau, that were
very much higher than the opposite
edge of the crater, had disappeared
by falling down in tho lake, nlong
with tho path that was formerly
used to go over from tho new lake
to the old, and the whole, together
with the new lake, forming a deep
chasm, making it look like one large
lake instead of two.
"Dining the night, while the
shaking was going on, the ground
was rent apart in several places.
One large crack opened up on the
road to Kilauca-iki, and two on the
road to Kcauhou, about ono mile
and a half from tho Volcano House.
"8:30 p.m. No fire or light to
bo seen in the crater, excepting two
small places, that look like lanterns
in the distance.
"March 8, 11 p. m. This r. si.,
at 3 o'clock, the guide crossed the
crater. There was no fire to be
seen, there only being two deep
dark holes in place of the burning
lake, with a deep valley running
from the former new lake to Hale
maumau. No fire or light to bo
seen from the House, excepting the
two small places seen last night.
"March 9, a. m. No signs of
fire. Smoko and steam still nround
tho chasm. The ground or lava
still seems to bo sinking.
"March 10. No lire in crater
thnt can bo seen from the House.
During tho shaking here there was
nothing felt at Keauhou, and only
two shakes felt at the Kapnpala
Kanch. This ranch is 17 miles
away, toward Punaluu. 8 p. si.
Two tourists just return from the
crater and report no burning lava."
Mr. Maby had only a brief state
ment to make of succeeding mani
festations: "Tho next day after
the collapso there was only a little
smoko coming up. A few days
afterward it commenced throwing
up ashes and dirt and kept falling
in. There was an inoreaso of stenin
from the oponings about tho house
after tho collapse, nnd back to the
northward of the Volcano House
there is stenm issuing now whero it
never did before. There has been
only one slight shock of earthquake
since tho first night." Ho believes
tho shocks to have been produced
by the falling in of tho vast bodies
of rock forming tho walls of tho
different craters proper.

tho 10th, wrote a good description
