LAST QUARTER'S EXPORTS.
Hon. Curtis P. Iaukea, Collector
General, is very prompt this time in
issuing his quarterly statement of
the exports. The sugar exported
was 07,975,279 pounds, valued at
$3,23C, 545.79, an increase of 15,
840,831 pounds over the correspond
ing quarter last year. Molasses was
almost all increase, being 15,288
gallons, value 81,002.10, against
1,481 gallons in the same time last
year. Rice decreased 723,850
pounds, being 1,447,550, value
870,421.75. Coffee increased nearly
to tho amount exported, 3,804 pounds
worth 8721.50, against GOO pounds
in tho llrstouartcrof 1885. Uananas
increased by 1,585 bunches, being
13,402, value 812,131.25. The re
maining articles showing increase are
as follow: 3,238 goat skins, 82,148;
0,392 hides, $23,877.43; 15,885
pounds tallow, $795, against none
last year; 73,180 pounds wool,
87,000; 3,110 sheep skins, 8338;
805 pounds awa, $73.70. Betel
leaves, 130 boxes, $"577.50, show a
decrease of 11 boxes. Sundries re
present a value of $800.50. The
total value of the past quarter's
exports was $3,357,015.52, against
$2,039,473.20 the corresponding
period last year. More than quarter
as much sugar Tvcnt from Kahului
as from Honolulu, while 1,751,852
pounds -was shipped at Hilo.
These returns are encouraging not
only as exhibiting a large increase
in sugar, our principal staple, but
also as showing thatother productions
are rising in importance, some at a
creeping pace but others by bounds.
In view of the apprehension felt at
tho results of the possible abroga
tion of the treaty of reciprocity
with the United States, it is in some
degree reassuring to know that tho
contraction in profits from sugar, in
that contingency, may be at least
partially made up by the increased
development of other resources of
our soil. The increased production
of sugar is in the same connection
gratifying, for competent authori
ties hold that all the sugar these
Islands can raise may still be mar
keted at a moderate profit without
tho advantages conferred by the
treaty. One effect of these consid
erations should be to excite both
official and popular interest in the
matter of colonization. The more
tho country can produce of articles
required by other countries, in any
event, the more wealth will be con
'ducted into the country. If the
vicissitudes of commercial inter
course with our nearest and greatest
neighbor cause capital to bo shy of
entering into new fields of sugar
cultivation under present methods,
an opportunity is afforded of intro
ducing a system of growing that
article by independent occupants of
small holdings. These, by being
enabled to raise other products for
their own sustenance, would bo
satisfied with a much smaller divi-
sion of profits on migar than share
holders in largo corporations now
regard as worth while drawing. At
the same time their wants would bo
greater than those of contract labor
ers under tho present system, so
that the creation of such a class
would vastly increase trade and in
dustry, thus stimulating tho growth
of all the elements of civilized so
ciety in the kingdom. Therefore, it
would seem to bo tho part of wis
dom, for those in a position to do so,
to take n practical interest in tho
work of colonization, as well as' tho
simplo duty of the Government to
slid so far as it can tho promotion of
colonization schemes conducted in
TRIP TO THE VOLCANO.
Observations about tho Caldora.
Reaching tho edge of tho lava, at
the southwest corner of the main
bluffs, wc have to climb up to it
where once it was gained by descend
ing over it cliff. Falling rain makes
the whole surface steam, so that at
times it is difficult to keep the track
stepped out by the guide. However,
with our heels crunching tjirough
occasional thin crusts of tho con
gealed lava waves, we steadily plod
our winding way over the black
mounds and steaming crevices. With
a steady ascent over a terribly
rugged incline, tho brink of the
nwful chasm is reached just over
looking the site of Hplcmaumau.
Gaping cracks near the edge mark
off laige slivers of the cliff ready to
tumble into the chaotic depth hun
dreds of feet below. Mr. Scverin
plants his camera on the treacherous
looking margin, the outer leg of the
tripod slips on the rounded shell,
and he is to be excused for display
ing signs of trepidation as he lead
justs the apparatus and stands but
a yard from the jaws of death to
take his sight. While this is being
done, the guide from the rear utters
an exclamation, then displays to our
turning gaze his stick blazing from
the fire in a deep crack. We stand
for a few moments regarding tho
sublime ruins trying to "take it
all in," as Mr. Thrum says, but, as
the advantages arc on the side of
the Volcano for taking us all in, it
is inexpedient to dnlly long with
danger. Where Halemaumau was
is a steep conical pit, as near as we
can judge four or five hundred feet
deep. As the tones and cliffs that
have collapsed stood some two hun
dred feet above the summit of the
lava field, the catastrophe of "March
Cth involved tho crash of a fabric
700 feet high, with a ground plan
of about four miles square. Such
a stupendous precipitation of rock
may well be regarded as sufficient to
have produced the quaking of the
earth, instead of being a result of
the latter. Had tho caithqunkcs
been the agents of what wc now see,
their effect would doubtless have
been felt over a much wider area
than was the case. Working round
toward the west side of tho crater a
sulphur-streaked dome is readied,
with an opening on one side in an
irregular circle of about twenty-five
feet in diameter, revealing a great
cavern of about fifty feet square at
the bottom. The heat waves issuing
from this so-called blow-hole are so
vivid as to give the impression of
white flames, and as we stand on
the edge of the overhanging piece of
roof that remains the hot blast of
air dries our clothing. About twenty
yards away stands a gnarled dome
about the same size, similarly deco
rated with sulphurous deposits but
unbroken. Clambering on amongst
huge mounds and hummocks, full of
cracks emitting great heat, we come
to a large pit, having perpendicular
and ragged-edged clilfs toward us,
with an enormous heap of fallcu-in
rock and stones sloping up to a tri
angular embrasure that opens out to
the gulf into which the New Lake
has caved. Going on toward the
north side another broken dome is
encountered, with strong indications
of fire underneath. These disrupted
fire bubbles show a thickness of
shell that to some extent disarms
fear of our breaking through into a
bed of burning lava. Where the
crust is thin enough to give way to
the tread, wc find a stronger shell a
few inches below it. The thickness
of the lava ranges from a quarter
inch to 18 inches. From over the
margin of the New Lake's fall in
tense heat waves make the air
vibrate violently. At this point all
that is left of the Little IJeggar could
be seen far below where it used to
rear its head so prominently in the
fiery scene one-half of a stout lava
cone standing on end, with the in
terior section thoroughly preserved.
At the baso of where it stood there
is the mouth of a cavern, from which
a passage to tho New Lake could be
traced by its long and regular convex
exterior. This showed those two
phenomena to have been connected.
A vast ridge of dobris reaches from
their ruins to tho opening of the pit
of Halemaumau. On the top of tho
cliff, near by, is a peculiar-looking
pillar, forming an image liko a
mother holding a child in arms, each
adorned with a gorgeous crown of
brimstone shining like yellow gold.
A few yards back from tho brink is
a largo cavern with a lateral open
ing, half of the roof and one side of
a lava dome having fallen. Wc
descend on the prostrate tiles to
look in, but only tho gttido hazards
entering. Shading his face from
the intense heat lie approaches a
crimson pool of molten lava, that is
visible from tho outside, and tosses
a used-up sandal into it. The
leather takes fire instantaneously,
blazing fiercely until consumed.
Among the peculiarities of tho lava
field was a deposit of a white sub
stauco in streaks insido some of the
cracks. It tasted liko soda, but
although tho veins wero half as
thick as a pencil they fell into
almost inipalpnblo powder when it
wus attempted to break off speci-
