' THE CRATER OF 1899. V-
Drawing :ade from desalptlon furnished the Herald by Sheriff Andrews, who visited the How on
Tuesday. W. von Graevemeyer, who was at the Volcano House when the outbreak occurre.t,' says this
drawing furnishes a clear Idea of the cone and the flow. He witnessed It from the veranda of the Volcano
House, twenty mites from.the cone. From the Hawaii Herald. ",,
No cessation of the flow, no
danger of damage to fertile lands,
as the courdn of tho flow aaomu to
be that followed in previous out
breaks, and indications of an out
break in Kil&uea is the epitome
of the reports from tho volcanic
outbreak brought, to Honolulu by
the steamers' arriving Saturday
night." " "
TboHiloTribuno of Saturdfty,
the loth, says: 'The smaller lluw
baa takon a direction which, if
pursued, will carry its devastating
Uoou through tuo Kau district,
and in o'ose proximity to the
lands of Kapapala. From the
most relmblo sources it is sup
posed that tbis flow of lava in but
of small area, and its course is
Buoh that it would naturally be
carried over lands wbiob havo
been rendered worthless by pre
vious flows of a similar naturo.
"The second flow, which is by
far the greater in extent, has
takon a course somewhat oast of
north, and is making its way in a
most sluggish man nor toward the
elevated platoau lying hetwoen
the mountains of Mauna Loa and
Mauua Kea. The point now
reached by this flow is a depres
sion of enormous area, in tho men
tioned district, and which will
take, at the prosont rato of travel,
many months of continuous flow
to make it even with the surround
ing country. Tho Hilo side,
wbiob, before careful examination
was made, appeared to bo in sorao
immediate daugor of devastation,
is uow, aftei thorough examina
tion, found to bo in but littlo dan
ger of harm from tho prosent
overflow. It will take many
mouths At tho present volume to
till tho depression spoken of, and
previous flows of aa havo left an
additional protection in tbo way,
of a solid wall of etonoiavoraging
about twenty feet iu height."
Georgo D. Gear, who joined tbo
first rush, returned iu tho Kinau
Saturday. The majority of those
who went up from Honolulu
stoppod at tbo Volcano House,
whore a splendid viow of tbo Uow
can bo obtained. The bouse was
packed with visitors, but Manager
Waldron niado excollent provi
sion for all his guoBtn.
There were about thirty p'oplo
in all who started out from variouB
direotiouB to mnke tho trip to tbo
crater. Only ten reached tho
sido of tbo crater, and
great stories of hardship are
told by those roturning. Horses
exhausted, shoes worn through
witb walking over paboeboe, luck
of water, aud mountain sickness
wore incidents of tbo trip. None
regret the trip, but Jack Wilson
is tbo only one who asaortp w
will over make it again. Two
Indies got within eight milrs of
the flow, but wero, obligod to stop
thero, as tnnir snooa were worn
The cone whore tbo first out
brrak occurred is not active, a

this four streams aroflowiuc
which morgo iuto the rent lava
stream that is making its fiory
way down tbo mountain side.
Fountaius about 100 feet high are
playing continuously and can U
se?n plainly from tly Volcano
Houbo. The main flow of living
firo is estimated to be about &U
feet wide and the head is within
about 20 miles of tho Wuiluku

tl. a. Pratt of Hilo had an cxpor
ionce be is not liknly to target in
uis lifetime. He wont ahnul 01
bis party out onto tho now 11 nv,
and got to a place where ho could
neither go ahead or return. There
was fire all around bim. Ho
uckily found a cool cauo.'ruid bud
down with his canteen umlor h.t
head to await developments. The
heat was terrific and his friends
thought be was done for. After a
while tho lava cooled sufficiently
to allow him to wnlk back over the
thin crust to a place of safety.
Georco Lycurgus claims with
Mr. Vannutta of Hilo the
honor of being tbo first to get
to tho outbreak. Thdy started
from Shipraans Sunday Imuruing
with six mule's. ' Thero it about
25 inflos of mulo bick rido and
tho rest of tho distacco of 15 to Iti

bio. About 8 o'clock Monti iy
evening tho party got to tho tdgo
of tho tiro. Goorgo's description
of tho trip and itsutteudautHi'oncri
is epitomized in "It whs hell."
When about three hours dibtmit
from the edgo of the principal
ojuq tho sound of the flowing lava
could bo heard like the roar of the
distaut ocean. Goorgo remarked
this morning, "I dream paboeboe
and fire ever since."
Tho Hawaii Herald
description of Sbeijff
trip as follows:
"Tbo oruption started ut appoint
