JIOU8E OF EEl'llESENTATIVES.
Nino mombors prosont at tho
A communication from tho Sen
ato informed tho Houso that tho
report of tho conferonco commit
too on Sonato Bill No. 1, relating
to appropriations had boon-adopted
and roforred to tho Sonito
commit too on passed bills. '
Eep. Bond offered tho report of
tho committee on education in j-o-gard
to u petition from Keuuhuu
asking that tho preparatory school
atthat placo bo kept open. Com
mittoo advises opening tho school
whenever the number of scholars
roaches ten or moro, tho number
being now but eight.
Bop. Kamauoha said ho under
stood thoroworo about forty-live
pupils and proposed referring
the petition back to tho com
mittee Eep. Bond objected stating that
tho committoo had tho report of
tho school and wbb certain that
thorp woro not moro than eight
pupils. This school was closed
Report finally adopted after
forty minutes talk.
Bop. Kamauoha presented an
amendment to tho fence law.
Select committee on Senato bill
No. 4, asked for moro time; grant
ed. Ministers Damon and Smith
woro present and Bop. Bjbnd took
advantago of tho fact by pro
pounding riddles, requesting
answors from tho Minister of Fi
nance. 1st. What is tho amount of tho
bonded debt hold abroad? An
swor: 81,000,000 in London and
$100,000 in tho United States.
2d. "What omouut is hold in
Hawaii? Answer: About 81,900,
000. 3d. As Uoating bonds abroad
is attoudod with considorablo ox
penso, while there is practically
no expenso attached to tho dispos
ing of tho same at homo, why can
not tho government well all'ord to
pay a highor rate of interest for a
homo loan than for n foreign ono?
Answer: If only n high inter
est bearing homo loan wore at
tempted, foreign investors would
purchaso hero just tho samo
through their agents, thus taking
advantago of tho higher rate.
At this juncturo tho Spoakor
ruled that Mr. Bond was out of
ordor and requested him to pro
sont his questions in writing
which was douo. Tho balance
of them aro as follows:
4th. Taking into consideration
tho period of time for which tho
bonds would run, what do you
considor would probably bo tho
highest additional rate of interest
that tho homo bonds could bour
above tho rato of bonds abroad?
In other words how much
highor than tho foreign rato
of intorest could the homo
rato bo without making the actual
percentage of expense on tho
homo loan moro than that on tho
foreign loan ?
5th. "What objection would,
there bo, if any, to tho passing of
tho two soparato Loan Acts; ono
for tho issuauco of bonds to bo
sold abroad and tho other at u
higher rato of intorest for sale at
Gth. In caso tho prosont dobt
should bo funded would it not bo
unjust to tho homo holders of
bonds to deprive thorn of tho op
portunity of loaniug thoir monoy
at a lower (?) rate of intorest if
they wished, by placing tho wliolo
loan abroad ?
7lh. Would not such a pro
coduro work an injury to this
country ? Signed,
E. 0. Bond.

Sliding off my couch at this
hour, tho smoothness of tho water
indicating tho proximity of tho
land, I was mot at tho foot of tho
saloon stairs by Purser Beckloy,
THE VOLCANO AS IT APPEARS 1'IIOM MAHUKONA.
Sketched for tlio 111 i.i.ktin by U. Howard Hitchcock.
who, with a gesture toward tho
deck, remarked in. deop tones :
"Dan. Logan, you want to go up
there now. It shows up beauti
Coming on dock I had tho first
sight in my lifo of an active vol
cano of tho school geography typo
a mountain summit bolching
forth flanio and smoke. I had
previously looked over tho brink
of Kilauea's iunor crater, when, as
was tho popular phrase at tho time,
the bottom of tho lako of firo had
dropped out. Pour years later
I looked into that Jnko whon its
surging waves of molten lava came
within polo reach of tho ledgo on
which tho visitors reclined.
Tho scone now behold a score
and a half of milos away, from tho
deck of tho Kinau, is different
from thoso other grand spectacles
oil tho mountain sido. This is
just liko tho school-book pictures
of Vesuvius. Dead ahead on tho
starboard quarter tho palo out
lines of tho mountain triplots of
Hawaii aro clear in the light of
tho descending moon. From tho
summit of tho middle mountain
Mauna Loa a pillar of fire is
limned against tho sky. It is in
tense red, super-imposed by a fil
my pink reflection, and a ragged
whip of smoko, streaked deep
black, oxtends toward Hualalai's
peak like a warship's homoward
bound pennant. I am not rash
onough to estimate tho height of
tho pillar of light, but sond here
with a rude sketch that will con
voy a fair idea of tho beautiful
Gardner Wilder aud Howard
Hitchcock aro up, and givo tlio
opinion that tho eruption is to
ward tho Kim sido. Thoy aro not
dogmatic on tho question, how
over, as tho plateau on tho summit
is a milo and thrco-quart-rs wido.
Our volcanic isle, at al events,
is proving equal to moro than ex
pectations of its performance of
duty. "Yoleanoos in any stylo on
tap," it may advortiso itself. Ki
lauea is unique among known
volcanoes, whothor in roposoful or
in porturbod moods. Enough
has not been mndo of tho fact that
it is well worth Booing oven whon
tho fiery flushings of its lakes and
ooiios have rucoded, as they havo
a fashion of periodically doing.
Hero, however, wo havo within
(loiivoniunt roach of four conti
nents u real duplicate of VohiivIuh.
It may be viewed, moreover, at
long rango without any ovorland
travel whatever. I just caught a
glimpse of it, while tho Bteamor
was turning, froin Mr. Bockloy's
desk whoro those lines aro written.
I would say in all sincerity that I
consider tho Bight ovon from tho
steamer woll worth tho cost of tho
trip to Hilo. There is a constant
ly changing aspect in tho specta
cle. At Kawaihae, 4 a. m.
Tho moon has gono down and I
sond you a sketch of tho volcano
under tho conditions of darkness.
Our artist mav ronroducn thn
scene now, making tho mountain
as donso a black as his plato will
carry. Tho pyrotechnic glow is
mode brighter by contrast. Its
baso seems to broaden now, and
there aro upshootings of flaming
vapor at difforent points. There
is every appearance of a lako of
firo in violent commotioa over an
area so oxtonsivo as to beggar
the grandest displays in Kilauea.
Samuel Parker has como aboard
to .havo a crack with tho ship's
company. He says tho eruption
is in tho summit crater, and ho
ought to know. Mr. Porker coos
to Honolulu by either tho Iwalaui
or tho Hall.
Possibly tho expedition for tho
summit may push through to tho
Volcano Houso tonight. Dr. Dillo
will mako tho journey if ho finds
that ho can possibly do it and
cntch this Kinau to return.
It would bo no small advantago,
in tho intorest of tourist travel
from tho Coast, to havo a lecturor
of such ability seo tho marvelous
phenomenon at close quarters, as
ho rotums to San Francisco on
May 9 and this eruption bids fair
to continue for months if not
Samo Day, 5:45 a. m.
It is broad daylight now, and
tho Yolcauo presouts a tamer, yet
still an interesting aspect. A vast
column of smoko, with voluminous
lateral sproadings, rises over tho
apex of the mountain. Skotcli en
closed. 'It is clearly apparent
now that if tho eruption is in tho
summit crater, it iB toward tho
Kau vorgo. At tho samo time
that it is on tho summit is ovidont
from the fact that tho inoidonco
of tho column does not chango its
relative position to tho contour of
tho mountain. If it was any con
siderable distanco down tho Kau
Bido,tho pillar would not continue,
with the changed point of view
as tho steamer is now moving in
an opposito direction from what
it was always directly over the
contor of tho summit.
I cannot thank Purser Beckloy
too heartily for his kindness in
placing hiB desk at my disposal
night and day, and for the assist
ance ho is rondoring in ascertain
ing mail facilities on whoro.
