THE COLUMBIA, " A GEM
Newport, R. L, June 25. The
-first trial of the new Amorica'scup
defender, Oolumbin, which took
placo in Narragansett hay today
was more Bncoessfnl than either
hor builders or her owners had
reason to hope. Not only did tho
now boat show borsslf to ho nblo
in ovary particular, but she met
tho old raoJr, Defender, iu n
friendly brush of a mile to wind
ward ami vanquished her with tho
greatest ease Tho raco between
tho flyers, which wasovor in five
minute, was sailod in ao oigbt
knot breeze under tho same condi
tions, each boat carrying throo
lower sails with shoot well flatten
ed. It took tho Columbia about three
minutes, sailing from tho Defen
der's weather quarter, to blankot
hor, nud in five minutos flho was
100 yards ahead, going past the
old cup defender as if the latter
was anohored. Uuder tboso oir
cumstancos it would seem as if the
Columbia woro fifteen to twenty
seconds n miln faster than the Dd
fendor, and if she can make tho
samo gain in a hard blow the fear
for the safety of tho America's
cup will be considerably allayed.

GREAT VOLCANIC OUTBREAK
Mrs. L. S. Aungst writes the BULLETIN from Holualoa, Konn,
Hawaii, under date of July 6, I p. m.:
On Monday night when Mr. Waldron of the Volcano House
retired everything was apparently quiet. At 2 a. m. the cook,
a new man, awoke Mr. Waldron and reported a great noise.
Mr? Waldron thinking it was Kilauea ran to the veranda but
saw all was quiet but a great glare was over the lake.
He rushed to the rear and saw a great outbreak from Moku
aweoweo and fountains playing in the uir. All guests arose
and witnessed the sight.
On Tuesday activity seemed to have ceased until about
four o'clock when molten lava made its appearance at the edge
of the ridge about 5000 feet from the summit. It seems to be
taking the same course as the flow of 1881, and is flowing
About five miles away from flow and on both sides are two
fountains, throwing lava high In the air. These fountains
played all of Tuesday night and until the fog came in jail hands
sat up to watch it.
The flow is coming in the direction of the Volcano House
and is wide. Tuesday night they had no) use for lights at the
Volcano House. George Paty who has resided Ihere for 30
years, kiys it is the liveliest flow he has ever witnessed and
from all appearance will be a lengthy one.
The .slight elevation may divert the course. There are two
flows at present, one toward Waiakea and the other between
the Volcano House and Kapapala ranch. It seems to be travel
ling at the rate of ten miles in twenty-four hours and if the
course is not changed should reach the road by Saturday. As
yet no outbreaks have been found on the Kona-Kau side.
At Honokaa and Kawailiae only the glare is visible at night.
Mr. Waldron calculates the distance from the Volcano House
20 miles in an air line or 30 by trail. It is plainlyjsecn from
Kona and Hilo. Parties from Kona are arranging to go to the
Purser Tuft of the W. G. Hall tells the following of the out
Shortly after three o'clock on
of July celebrated in Hawaii under the American flag, Mokus
weoweo on Mauna Loa burst forth in raging activity with a
terriflt explosion, the report of which was heard at the Volca
no House twenty-five miles away and in villages and, hamlets
at a still greater distance. The first explosion was followed by
two others, almost as the first and accompanied with tremen
dous reports. The first eruption took place at the summit of
the crater at about a quarter past three, the other two followed
soon after about 9 miles from the summit. A most stirring
spectacle was presented by the belching smoke and lurid burets
of flame and rapidly flowing red hot streams of lava. The
heavens were lit up with a ruddy glow and the thousands wl 0
observed the display from all parts of Hawaii, witnessed a
scene magnificent in the extreme.
Two large streams of lava are flowing from the active Moku
aweoweo, one in the direction of Hiio, while the other is rapidly
making its way to the sea in the direction of Kau.
The flow towards Hilo is taking much the same course of the
lava flow of 1880. The course of the present flow in the direc
tion of Kau follows very nearly that of the lava flows of 1868
and 1887. Purser Tuft viewed the eruption on the Fourth of
July and reports it visible from Lahaina.
The two eruptions below the crater itself presented two dis
tinct spouts of flame and lava bursting through the side of the
mountain. It is not possible at present to determine the extent
of the lava flow, but it is known that the lava is running for
the most part over waste and arid land and that no damage is
likely to be done to cultivated land or populated districts.
When the W. G. Hall left Lahaina the volcano was still
spouting flame and lava, and the distant glow was the last seen
33 of the grand spectacle, as the
lauea was smoking considerably, and there is much speculation
as to whether that crater will become once more active.
