VACATION DAYS IN THE TROPICS.
v nnv. t. n. a. it-ok.
Uhatkh or K.i.ai'ka, Sept. 10, 18SU.
1 am hero standing on the edge of
thogi cutest active olunno in the
world. Vesuvius, Hcckla, Stroiu
boll cyen the renowned ilStna
are pigmies compared with the
monster Kilr.uca, with its crater of
fifteen miles in circumference and
its vast lake of liquid (he. The
journey up to this point is not as
arduous as you might at first, sup
pose. Wo left Honolulu in the Ki
imu just four days ago, and since
then we havo been steaming fiom
port to port among these cvergieen
isles till we llnally htoughl up at
Keniihou , the seaport ncaicst here.
It was a voyage as novel in its at
ti actions as it was varied in its
fcatutes. There was first of all the
island of Molokai, which wc passed
in the early moonlight, the nbodo of
the poor lepers who arc sent here
fiom all parts of the Hawaiian king
dom. Then the bold rocky promon
tories of Maui rose before us, which
hold within them the grim crater of
Ilalcakala, thirty miles in circum
fcicncc, though now happily extinct.
Then thiough the broadest of the
channels that bcpaiatc lhce isles
one from another, wc steamed over
to beautiful Hawaii, the loveliest
gem of the Pacific, which contains
the loftiest mountains, the deepest
valleys, the bioadcbt and sunniest
fields of perhaps any country of its
size in the world.
At one of the first stopping places
on this inland, a place called Kawiii
hac, my attention was drawn to an
immense phitfotm of heapcil-up
stones, where in the old barbaric
days human sacrifices iibed to be
offered to the heathen gods of the
island. Then, passing on, we saw
by way of contrast the spires of
scores of Christian chinches peering
above the vast fields of waving
cane. Thou followed immense angu
lar precipices of rock, intersected
by long, deep, narrow valleys mu
lling far up into the interior. Al
most every one of these valleys con
tained a small river of its ow n broken
into vast cascades, w liich glistened
in the sunliirlit like molten silver.
For miles and miles wc passed
these strange formations of lock,
shaped like the angular loof of a
house in front, while their sloping
sides were clothed with the richest
emerald verdure. Then succeeded
long sunny plains liere no hill nor
mountain could he seen save the
huge forms of Mauna Kea and
Mauna Loa in the dim distance.
The whole day was one exquisite
panoiama of hills and valleys and
canc-ficlds, with groves of palm,
mango, pandanus, oleander and
sandalwood trees intetspcrsed with
the tall chimneys of factoiies and
the pietty hamlets where the sugar
makers dwell. The coast is so ab
rupt all along here that the bags of
sugar had to be lowered over the
precipices by means of cranes into
the small boats which carry them
out to the steamer, and men, women
and children who intend to take
passage have to be lowered in the
same way. We passed "beautiful
Ililo" at eleven at night, so that I
did not see it at that time, and early
the next morning we reached Iveau
hou, the point of land where we
weietotako horses for the fifteen
mile trip to the volcano. How shall
I describe to you that wonderful
horseback feat w here for miles and
miles you dash along through im
mense beds of lava rock, the re
mains of a great volcanic Hood with
which tho slope has been inun
dated 1 Tiicu when wc had attained
the, table-land above we entered one
of those vast fetn forests for which
this island of Hawaii is distinguished.
Ferns covering the way like a car
pet; ferns springing up into gieat
bushes; ferns blanching out into
immense trees ; ferns of every kind
and variety, of cwsry form and
shape and, I was going to say, al
most of every color, too. Finally
this profiibc vegetation began to
diminish. The air suddenly be
came cooler and niore bracing. Our
hoi ses plodded along with a more
agile step. Strange vapors too be
gan to show themselves, and there
was a smell ot sulphur in the air.
We had no idea that tho crater was
so near, or that wc wcie already
passing over ground which was un
mined by iinpiisoncd Hies. Vet so
it was, for of a sudden there was tho
"Volcano House" light beforo us
and the gieat crater of Kilauea just
.Standing on tho voranda of the
house we could look right down into
the yawning chasm ; not into what
is now an ocean of iiro, but what was
onco so. All that vast aiea whose
circumference, as I havo said, is 15
miles, and whoso shortest diameter
is three, was evidently once a burn
ing, llery caldion, through whose
hardened surface even now vast
rivers of lava occasionally burst
foith and How. I wish that I could
give you even a faint conception of
that vast petrified sea, its great
swollen billows of hardened lava,
the inlets which it has made 'for
itself in tho rocky shoio, its wind
ings amid tho huge bowlders, its
sheltered pools beneath tho deep
caverns, just like any other ocean,
sea or lako you may have seen.
It was all very curious and, too,
very startling. There was no noise,
no sound of bird or chirp of insect,
only that vast petrified mass lying
in silence below mo as if tho waves
of the Atlantic in the fiercest storm
you ever saw had suddenly congealed
into hardened rock, each bounding
billow preserving its original size
and shape, and even the hissing
spray turned into n consolidated
But where, then, is the source of
Kilauea's present activity, of the
(ires which often now burst forth,
and the vnst lava Hoods which often
now innundate the whole adjoining
countiy? Do you sec those clouds
of smoke and vapor rising yonder
and covering the heavens with their
gray folds? Do you sec that lurid
light reddenning the sky and reflect
ed from tho black hills beyond?
That is all that lcmaius of that once
vast ocean of fire. Kill it is enough,
as you will piesentiy see. Here is a
crater within a crater; a lake of
liquid fire in the midst of u petrified
sea aiound ; a boiling, tempestuous,
seething activity amid a broad ex
panse of desolation and death.
A SUltl'KNT OF KIKE.
It was already late in the after
noon when we started for the lake.
It was to be a tiamp of thieo miles
or more, and we were to do it on
foot, for no horse or mule could
possibly be trusted for the journey.
Kvcry man armed himself with a
thick stick and a lantern, for the
way was slippery and it would be
pitch daik oic wc returned. First
came the long-stccpcd declivity by
which wc were to descend. One
fourth the way down wc passed a
stone eros raised on a mound near
by. It marked the spot wheic, not
long since, a young Englishman
dropped dead on his return from the
burning lake. Poor fellow! Tho
excitement from what he had seen
and the ensuing fatigue were too
much for him, and just in view of
the Volcano IIoii!e he sank and with
out a word or ign yielded up his
Down, down, down, till it seemed
as if the lava plain would never be
reached! How the steep precipices
began to frown upon us! They
looked as if they were at least a
thousand feet high. Finally tho
bottom was reached and we stood
on the edge of the petrified sea,
which sti etched almost inimitably
before us. "Be careful now, boys,"
said the guide ; follow just in my
trail," and wc did our best so to do,
staggering along paths so jagged
that it seemed as if every particle of
shoe, leather would be torn from our
feet, by jutting masses of laa which
threatened to slave in our pibs, down
declivities so sudden that our canes
wcie snapped iu twain, and then
over great yawning crevices through
which the heat would pour like the
blast of a furnace. The lurid glare
in front of us marked our way, but
it seemed as if we would never reach
it ; besides the rain began to pour
down' making the path doubly slip
pery and drenching us to the skin.
Finally the guide chew up on a little
mound to the leewaid of the' great
volume of steam and smoke, and we
were told to look down. Wc were
standing on tho very edge of the
burning lake, which stretched out
below us to the depth of five or six
bundled feet. And what a sight!
A vast expanse of liquid 'lava, in
some places boiling and sputtering
like the contents of a caldron, in
otlicis bursting out into lurid jets of
flame, in otlieis still yawning in long
crevices, red hot through, and pie
senting a singular net-work of fire
like a lace pattern spread over the
lloor of a house. Great pillars of
lava stood here and there amid tho
molten expanse, like light-houses in
a bay, and through orifices at the
lop they gave foith the most infernal
hissing and gurgling sounds that
you can imagine. Vast lurid fires,
too, gleamed in the distance, sul
phiuous vapors poured forth from
hidden vent holes, and the dark
precipices around glared with nn
unearthly effulgence. It was Dante's
"Inferno" over again ! I could think
of nothing but "the fire that is
never quenched," "tho bottomless
pit whose smoke ascendelh forever
