President Smith, of the Board

woro altogether over 1400 people
in tbe lopor sottlomouts, uud while

resulted both to tho unfortunates

Sonato Bill No. 25, defining tho

tho firo limits must, ns is obvious,
bo extended from timo to timo
and that it was a mnttor which,
while liablo to uork, in individual
cases, u hardship, still it was for
tho public good and a possiblo

Just left Lahaina. From on
deck thoro Gnrdner "Wilder point
ed out a whilo pillar of cloud over
Mauna Lon. Tho sotting sun was
shining on it, making it quite
clear. Other passengers who know
the lay of tho land confirm tho
location. Tho brightness of tho
moon may reduce tho glare to
night, but if I can descry any you
shall hnvo it from Mnhukona. It
is likoly that n good-sized party
will bo organized at Hilo or the
Volcano Houso to bravo tho
height of tho fire-spitting moun
tain. Tho Kinau had a smooth pas-sago,-inost
of it, although a strong
dead easterly breeze was encoun
tered whenever the lee of Oaliu
was woll cleared. Captain Clarke
tolls mo it is unusual to havo to
lower sails, as on this occasion,
whilo crossing tho channel. Most
of tho passengers weio moro or
loss affected, making tho nttond
anco at lunch table slim, but near
ly all aro out on deck now enjoy
ing tho smooth loo of Maui as
night closes in.
I am keoping a good lookout
for tho glare, but tho atmosphere
over Hawaii is smoky. Tho white
cloud is now obscured.
Father Libert camo on at La
