was descried about a hundred
yard8 to tho right. Most of tho
time it was less in tho height of
its spray than tho first one, but
now and thou it would appa
rently mako a tromondous
effort to vio with its rival
in effect as it certainly par
alleled it in intonsoness and con
stancy of action. Theso two foun
tains differ from those that were
wont lo play in tho lakes of Ki
lauoa, in thatthoy always presorvo
the samo position and novor let up
in action for an instant. I have
seen Kilauoa when you would
have to wait sovoral minutes to
sbo a firo fountain and a goneral
break up of tho lava crust, and
when ono big fountain would
burst forth the chancos wore that a
half a dozen others would follow
suit. Thoro was ono exception
that Mr. Loo reminded this party
of, which was that of "Old Faith
ful" inKilauoa. It was not un
intormittont inits action, although
it "always kept its own placo. The
lively Bpouting couoj called
"Tho Littlo Beggar," which I re
member reading about in tho
Bulletin moro than ton years
ago, may also bo claimed as an ex
ception. Its shell still stands in
Kilauoa and is pointed out by tho
Kilauoa's shifting firo fountains
woro grand enough, and probably
bb interesting to Btudy as the
stationary ones in Mauna Loa.
That these aro stationary is ovi
dont from tho appcaranco of tho
reflection ovor siuco tho outburst.
I think I said in a former letter
that difforent observers agreed on
tho appoaranco boing that of two
eruptions in tho crater. Some
thing will bo said of tho reflection,
as seen from hero, later in this
letter. As wo watched, shivering
in the bittor cold on tho snow
clad cliff, tho atmosphere in tho
crater becamo perfectly clear,
giving opportunity of a bettor
study of tho wholo workings. It
was seen that streams of red lava
woro eating thoir -way in every
direction from tho fountains, and
those in line with tho fountains
had frequent small but furious
eruptions of their own. Another
thing that aftor discussion
was agreed upon
tho fountains woro
middle of a molton

dually you could see its rnovo

crater inside tho lino of an old
deposit of pahoohoo. Whothor
tho pahoehoo boing submorged
under tho present aa flow was tho
product of tho eruption now only
about a fortnight old was a ques
tion discussed by tho party . It
was docided, at least by a majori
ty, that it belonged to a former
oruption, notwithstanding that
snow does not lie on it as on tho
undoubted old formation outside.
One of tho most curious things wo
saw, and that rospondod to an eu
coro several times, was the samo
as had been recorded of previous
eruptions in Mokuawoowoo. A
brownish pillar as of smoke,
straight as an arrow and symmet
rical as a Corinthian column,
suddenly shot up at tho opposite
Bide of tho crater. It was as high
as tho cliff on that Bido, and it
traveled with a spiral-like motion.
Ab it whirled along it ripped up
immense slabs of congealed lava
as if it haB a steamer's propeller
at its baso.
It was when night fell that tho
sublimity of tho scono was re
alized. Tho fouutains played
with increasing energy as wo
thought. And indeed the energy
was increasing, especially on the
part of tho littlo brother. Not
only tho molton lako but tho aa
flow was streaked and spangled
with firo in thousands of places,
hero and thoro with eruptive dis
plays akin in action but not to bo
compared with tho fountains in
size. I am sure that thoro was
firo thus distributed ovor an area
of a squaro milo. It would bo
profanoly trito to say that tho
spoctaclo will always bo ono of
tho uppermost in tho minds of all
who behold it. Mr. Hitchcock,
although noarly perished of tho
intonso cold, bravely sat on tho
olilf and sketched tho awo-in-sparing
manifestation of tho dyna
raio force and pyrotechnic capa
city of tho earth's fiery coro.

great expedition after arrival, and
its shelter was often sought by

watching tho volcano. Whon tho

two of biscuit was all that I could
take, although I was not very ill.
Mr. Monsarrat was about as mis

of tho party had lain down for tho
night, lho llluoss ot tho nativos
put tho caro of tho animals on

arrangements for tho best possi

All who wore not too ill gave a
jar ting look to tho volcano boforo
ying down for tho night. In pro
paring tho tent gross matting was
spread on the snow-covored rocks,
and that with each oiio'b blaukot
and all tho clothos ho could put
on was all his protection
against the cold. It was tolerably
sufficient, however, the chief com
plaint hoard being of feet that
could not bo warmed. A tent had
boon mado for tho women against
a stono wall loft by tho United
States naval party of scientific
observation long ago, and it prov
ed to bo quite comfortablo under
tho circumstances. Tho native
woman sat up with tho volcano
a great part of tho night, and this
morning remarked her surprise
that tho haoles should take such
trouble to see it at night and then
go to bediearly. She has hor re

About dimonsions thoro is
diversity of opinion. I give my
own estimates hero subject to cor
rection on conviction. Tho main
crator is known to bo about throe
miles long by ono and three
quarters wido. My ostimato of
tho sizo of tho molton lako is
nearly a thousand feot long by
Bix hundred foot broad. Measur
ing tho highest spurts of
tho fountains by tho cliff
opposite, which different au
thorities put at 800 aud 1000
foot, I should Ray that they go as
high as live hundred feot. Tho
frontago ot tho fountains is from
ono hundred to two hundred foot
each. Tho lako and tho How make
a good squaro mile.
