FRIDAY, APRIL , 188G.
RIGHT USE OF BLACK SAND.
Black Band, or volcanic ashes, is
as useful as abundant, but its
abundance sometimes induces too
abundant use. Applied in proper
quantities to certain classes of soil,
particularly soil of a clayey nature,
it is a fertilizer; but when added
too freely it produces sterility.
Mixed with earth, it makes a good
footpath, with pulverized coral, an
excellent road for any purpose.
Laid loosely on the surface of walks
and drives, several inches thick, ns
is usually done in Honolulu, it be
comes a nuisance rather than an
improvement. It yields disagree
ably under the tread, and causes
discomfort by getting over the tops
of slippers and low bliocs. A mode
rate quantity sprinkled on the sur
face of a path or drive, while the
soil is damp, is better than nothing.
To loosen and pulverize the surface,
thoroughly intermixing the band
with tho earth, in the proportion of
about one-third of the former to
two-thirds of tho latter, then tramp
ling or rolling while in a moist con
dition, is better still. But, best of
all, take powdered coral that has
never been hardened by the sun,
mix it with black sand in equal pro
portions, put on several inches
thick, and roll with a heavy roller.
This makes a first-class road, wears
Bmoothly and evenly, is solid and
good in all weathers, nnd will last
for many years. The sand helps to
bind tho coral, and obviates the
blinding glare which the unmixed
coral emits in the sunlight. To
employ black sand in this way is
making it servo a good purpose;
but to use it in the way and with
the prodigality that many people use
it, is making of it a detestable nui
sance: better let it remain in its
. One of the most remarkable move
ments of the time is that against the
liquor tralllc in the Southern States.
Lately tho prohibitionists won a
victory at the polls in Atlanta,
Georgia. Now a Richmond, Vir
ginia, paper says that the country
papers of that State, with a good
deal of unanimity, demand a local
option law, and takes it for granted
that one will be passed.
Trading of liquors and fire-arms
in the Arctic, within United States
jurisdiction, is forbidden by the
United States Government. Similar
prohibition is in force on the Russian
sido. Two revenue cutters are 'sent
out by the United States, this sea
son, and vessels caught with spirits
or fire-arms on board for trading
purposes will be confiscated, with
their contents. In spite of prohibi
tion and tho measures adopted for
its enforcement, some vessels that
have recently called hero, on their
way north, are said to havo taken
aboard large quantities of the first
named contraband for the forbidden
An amusing revolt against an
antique superstition is materialized
in the "Thirteen Club" of New
York. This society was formed
about five years ago for the purpose
of living down tlio fatalistic dread
of being one of n party of thirteen
at table. The Club numbers thir
teen, and lately held its fifth dinner.
Festoons of black and white crapo
were hung from the ceiling and at
tached to the sides of the room witli
undertaker's badges. The punch
which tho club drinks is concocted
of thirteen ingredients nnd was tlio
favorite drink of Daniel Webster,
who, having thirteen Jcttera in Jils
nrunc, Imparled Iho secret only lo
persons whose ntuncs lnul the sainu
peculiarity. Several notable per
sons were guests of tho occasion.
It would appear that some of the
statements lately made regarding
the Panama Canal, and its con
demnation by the French Govern
ment's commission, were premature
and not altogether just. M. Jac
quet, one of the commissioners, as
recently as March 10, said to a New
York Tribune reporter:
"There can be no doubt that the
canal will be finished. So much
money has already been spent on it
that it connot be given up now. It
is surprising that the Americans
should be opposed to it. I llnd that
the Americans make a great bugbear
out of the Chngrcs river. I have
not yet made up my mind as to
which of the schemes proposed for
controlling the Chngrcs is the better.
One contemplates, building a great
dam at Gamboa, and the other pro
vides new courses of levees of the
Upper and Lower Chngrcs. I be
lieve both plans for controlling the
river arc feasible and the expense
would not bo so great as has been
represented. I am not yet prepared
to sav when the canal will be com
pleted or what tho total cost will be."
A TRIP TO THE VOLCANO.
Observations about tho Caldera.
Having made the tour of more
than half the environing cliffs of
the crater, we take seats for a
brief rest on some brick-shaped
blocks of lava, at the point where
the tourists' trail from the Volcano
House was broken off by tho grand
collapse. How fortunate it was that
there were no visitors to the crater
that eventful night, is forcibly im
pressed on tho mind when Mr. Maby
traces out the further course of the
path in tho awful wreck below. As
we had obtained a very satisfactory
view of the cavity and environs
from above, it was deemed best not
to attempt a descent into the abyss
with its inevitably treacherous foot
holds and possibly overpowering
gases, not to mention the peril of
falling rock and stones. Therefore,
after resting, the march was taken
up across the caldera for home.
This gave a bit of experience doubt
lessly common to all visitors to Ki
lauea for tho first time What
looked from a distance to be a
smooth Held of lava, presenting a
delightful walking surface, was a
veritable sea of hills, their crests
and cavities wearing an endless
variety of knobs, twists, crevices
and contortions. The trail winds in
and out, up and down, among the
hummocks, half the time the pedes
trian being out of sight of both the
point of departure and the destina
tion. In fact, the whole remaining
surface of the lava field is only it
little less diversified than the portion
rising to the recent eruptive points.
The two miles and a half of such
walking to tho shore of this con
gealed sea make a healthful suffi
ciency of that exercise on top of the
laborious explorations above des
cribed. I could think of nothing
more nearly like the lava held in
form than a northern river after an
ice shove, except that the heaped
cakes of ice take on more angular
shapes than this material. How
ever, the hard walking is not over
yet. The Volcano House lias to bo
reached by a zigzag road over the
bluff, some six hundred feet high
(guessed). Halfway up a large
terrace is crossed, which looks like
the result of a great subsidence long
enough ago to permit the breaches
to be hidden in dense vegetation.
Wearily climbing the hill, a sight
wortli making the Volcano trip to
see comes in view. On tho top of
tho perpendicular bluff over tho cal
dera, just beyond tho point where
tho subsidence mentioned begins, a
largo area is pouring forth volumes
of steam, giving tho appcaraneo of
an immense city block on fire, with
white smoke rolling up from the
roof beforo the ilames break out. It
was tho grandest exhibition from
Pelo'e boilers seen during our visit
and lasted nil tho rest of the even
ing, although not presenting so
striking an appearance when seen
from above as from below its level.
After our return to the house, thick
weather prevented any further ob
servation of tho crater that day. On
the following morning matters were
very little changed. The smoke
seemed to bo raoro generally diffused
over the mouth of tho crater, as if
the fire was gaining ground, wliilo
tho steam from the wholo caldera
appeared to bo diminishing. No
conclusion can bo formed from
theso symptoms, however, for both
smoke and steam havo varied much
from day to day sineo tho eruptive
forces suspended operations.
