Sunday last waB Portuguese day
in Hilo. J. M. Vivas had coino
down from Honoluln by the Hnll,
riding across countryfrom Ki.
lauea to join tho Kinnu-at Kuwni
hao. Messrs. Silva and Fernuu
dos did not como past Kailua. On
arrival at Hilo Mr. Vivas hold a
preliminary meeting of all tho
leading Portugueso of tho district,
at which it was resolved to call n
meeting of all tho Portuguase
from Onomea to Waiakea. Tho
meeting was called for Sunday at
12 o'clock at tho Courthouse, oithor
tho courtroom or tho yard having
been placed at tho committeo's
disposal by Sheriff Hitchcock.
At tho hour appointed between
250 and 300 Portugueso assembled
in the courtroom. J. M. Gouvoia,
Jr., called tho meeting to order, lip
having boon chairman of .tho pro
liminaiy meeting. Ho was ap
pointed permanent chairman, nud
Mr. Eocha secretary. Mr. Vivas
was introduced to tho audience as
ono with whom many of them woro
already acquainted. Ho spqko
upon tho principal objects of tho
Portugueso Union, opening his
romnrks with tho assertion that
the Union wished it understood
by ono and all that its movement
was not aggressive toward the
Government or peoplo now in tho
islands of any class or nationality.
His address-lflaled about an hour,
and its various points were enthu
Speeches woro also mado by
A. G. Sorrao, Jos. Viorra, M. S.
Cauario, J. M. Gonvcia, fnthorof
tho chairman,and M. M. Medoiros.
A branch of tho Union will bo
formed horo as n result of tho
visit of Mr. Vivas.
A fatal tragedy was enacted in
tho Hilo jail on Tuesday of last
week, tho victim being an old
offender named Kauai. Ho had
been ailing and taking medicine
at tho hands of P. Do Souza,
deputy jailor. On that ovoning
Kauai asked to bo lot out of Ins
cell to empty his slop bucket. Do
Souza complied, showing him out
with a lantern. "When tho door
of Kauai's coll was reached on re
turning, tho prisoner sprang upon
tho deputy jailor and throttled
him. Do Souza cried for help
and tho coll doors of iivo" trusties"
being opon.theso prisoners rushed
out to seo what was tlio mattor.Thoy
found Kauai holding Do Souza
down and pulled him off, and just
in time, for tho deputy jailor's
tonguo was hanging out. Tho
lantern had boon overturned,
sotting tho jail on fire, and whilo
some wero putting out tho flamos
tho othors wore1 struggling with
the infuriated prisoner. In tho
struggle a door bolt was heard to
rattle, and, as was afterward
judged, this was caused by Kauai's
head banging against tho door.
Duforo tho uosporato man was
finally subdued a South Sea Isl
nnd prisoner grabbed him by tho
logs and brought him on top of
himself. Kauai in falling struok
his head on tho floor. Ho was
finally .shoved into tho coll and
locked in. Pifteon minutes Inter,
whou Doputy Sheriff Lyman
visited tho coll, ho found Kauai
stbno dend. An inquest was hold
by tho Doputy Sheriff on Wednes
day morning, when tho jury ro
turned a verdict setting forth that
Kauai camo to his death in a fight
of his own making. Tho prisoner
who thus died onco boforo invited
a tragic death. Ho was working
on tlio Volcano road undor a
previous sontonco, when ho mado
a desperate attempt to escape
and was shot hi tho log by Mr.
Staples, tho prison luna.

Tlio following passongoi'B from
Honolulu by tho nltmms' fcti'mi
arrived. on WilBon's coach yester
day afternoon : Mrs. G. S.Mor
rill, Boston, Mass.; Dr. 0. E. Ed
words and wife, Kansas city, Mo.;
Miss 8. P. Birnio, MisB G. O. Bir
uio, Springfiold,Mass.;E. O. Scott,
Honolulu. They aro a pleasant
party and the atmosphere of tho
houso was quito sociablo last
night. Today all of tho guests
united in nn oxploriug party, visit
ing all tho wondors within roach.
The crutor of Kilauoa was first
visited. Aftor reaching the horso
pen, tho 'Unimals ridden by
two of tho ladies woro
tied up, and tho Little Beggar cono
and ndiacont cave woro inspected.
'Dr. EdwordB took sovoral photo-
grnphs of tho party, grouped
about tho baso of a lava pyramid.
at tho cntrauco of tho cave, otc. I
All of tlio ladies descended to the
bottom of tho hot cave, mentioned
in a previous lettor, oiuorging
in a more or less npoplectic condi
tion. Tho tourists wero much im
pressed with tho profound dopth
of Hnlemnumau, whoso bottom
was densely veiled with tho whito
vapor from beneath.
In tho afternoon tho party filed
down tho smooth path, through a
jungle of ferns, loilohua nud oladlu,
to" the crator of Kilauea-iki. On
tho way tho guide led thorn to
"Lnvor'8 Leap," tho crest of a
perpendicular cliff about seven
hundred feet high, where tlio most
complcto view possiblo of tho
crator of Kilauea is obtained.
Loud and profuse wero tho ex
pressions of dolight whon tho
grand nuiphithentro of Kilauea
iki suddonly camo into
view. This is really ono of
tho splendid Bights of tho volcanic
region. Its steep, symmetrical,
forest-clad walls, between sovon
and eight hundred foot in height,
and its bare, black, smooth-looking
lava floor, make a picture
beautiful and grand to bohold.
Wo aro told that certain rough
Bpots, barely distinguishable on
tho floor, aro hummocks ton to
fifteen feet high. Tho guido de
scends by tho dangerous trail to a
lodeo thirty or forty foot below
us, whence ho hurls bowlders
down tho declivity for our amuse
ment. As they bound through
tho scrub thoy diminish with tho
distance, until, as thoy approach
tho lava bod, they look like toadB
in a race.
Without waiting to rest at tho
houso on returning from tho
extinct crator, wo pass on tho fow
hundred yards to tho huge sul
phur banns, with their various
deposits, from Nature's chomical
laboratory and wealth of coloring.
In ascending tho steep side of tho
principnl bank, ouo lady had tho
miBfortuno to sink to hor
ankles in a bed of frosh red
ochro. Iior bIioos woro beau
tifully painted, tho coat bo
ing thicker than tho loathor, but
tho owner so littlo appreciated tho
novel shoo dressing as to leave
tho shoes with the steward for a
souvenir. Mr. Hitchcock was
found on tho banks, sketching a
piotty bit with tho towor of tho
houso poopiug aboyo tho trees.
By tho way, tho artist has boon
very industrious, in theso his re
cent visits to tho volcano. Ho is
going to have a splondid series of
pictures, and, what may surpriBO
some peoplo, thoro aro scones out
side of tho orator no loss attrac
tive, in art reproduction, than tho
fiery ones within whon tho lnko is
charged with molton lava.
