An Accident Tbat Might Have Had Serious
Consequences Happily Has No Worse Re
sults Tban An Impromptu Joke.
Prosidont Dole personally con
ducted another expedition in the
now comotoiy quest yesterday
a'lornoou. This was to the crater
of Fnnohbowl. Two wagonettes
picked up thp party nt Mclntyre's
corner nt 1 o'clock. F. A.
Sohaofor wont along in bis own
buggy. With tho President the
other membors of the expedition
were David Dayton, John W.
McDonald, Oharles Wilcox nnd
representatives of tho Advertiser,
Star, Independent, Makaainana
and Bulletin. W. H. Oum
mincs, the road supervisor, await
ed tho party at the Tantalus road,
having witb him a laborer with
pick and shovel.
Mr. Gummings showed the way
to about a dozon trial pits, Bunk to
test tho character of the oartb, at
different places within tbo crater.
fcven in those close under tbe
rooky rim of tbe crater tho dig
ging was seen to bo a very oaoy
matter. Theso wero indeed tho
only pits whero any rook forma
tion whs visible, and it whs sunh
as to yield readily to tho pick.
For the rpst, a thiok stratum of
vogetanlSMoum lay atlho surface,
and below it strata of volcanic
ashes and sand. Not the sligbtoat
doubt wub left that practically the
whole basin within tho t-ummit

making of grave. The soil was
also seen to bo of very (inn qual

flowera to. beautify n city of thi
