Clies Details of Yolcanlc Disturbances Since
Arrival of Missionaries Goes b;
Itself and Hot tb Snn.
Editor H..MWM"? Polishes
in the current' fiiumber of tho
Plantors Monthly (in historical
detail of the volcanic eruptions op
Hawaii since 1823. The dotoil
whioh Mr. Whitney gives rather
upsets the theory advanoo by Mr.
Lyons that eruptions oan be fore
told by reference to tho sun. Mr,
Strangors as well as residents
sometimes ask how ofton tbo vol
canic eruptions occur. Thero aro
no regular poriods, but the records
of tho prospnt century show that
thero havo been twenty, including
small and large eruptions. Thero
has been no regularity with them.
It may however bo assumed that a
lava flow occur?, on an average,
every thro?, four or five years.
During tbe first twonty-two years
of tho presont century, wo have no
record of any except that of Hui
lalui, the largo monntaiu back of
Eailun, which took place in 1801,
the stream pouring into tbo sea
near tbo mountain. Native tradi
tion roportnd to the missionaries
that deaths had ocourred from this
eruption, but liko the traditions
concerning Eeoua's army thoy aro
considered not reliable, or rather
1823. Tbo first action of tbe
volcano after the arrival of the
missionaries in 1820, was in 1823,
and is described by EIHb. This
took place below Kilaues, and.
Hervea to exuaguieu- us ores tem
porarily. Later tbo fares returned,
and tho whole area of tho pit was
described and pictured by him as
1832. In this year twelve
years after tho arrival of the mis
sionaries wo find tho first refer
ence to an oruption in tho summit
crater of Mokuaweowoo, which
continued in notion for two or
three weeks. Eilauoa, which for
some time previous had been very
activo. subsidod during the activi
ty of Mokuaweowed, showing
connection bolweon'tho two. Ki
lauea iki was also reported very
activo at this time.
1838 Count Strezlechi, who
visited the volcano this year, re
ported Eilauca in extraordinary
activity ovor its entire Burface.
His description deems to corro
borate that of Ellis that the whole
intoriof of Eilauca was in action
In 18dO There was an eruption
below Olaa, which flowed through
Puna reaching the sea uear Nana-,
In 1843 An oruption took placo
in Jauuary, on tho north side of
the summit of Mauna Loa, and
flowed into tbo valley between
Maunn Eoa and Mauna Lrm, one
branch heading towards Hilo. It
lasted only three weeks, now inn
about 30 miles.
In 1851, August 8, a stream
broke out near tho summit of Ma
una Loa, ran four days down the
west slopo of tbe mountain and
In 1852, a largo stream broke
out on the northeast slope, and
lasted one month.
1855, a stream of lava broke
out on the northeast side of the
mountain, at 12,(03 font elevation,
mid flowed into the valley regiou
between Mauna Ken and Mauna
Loa, tbon turned eastward and
continued to flow toward Hilo for
thirtoon months, making tho I arc
est stream on record.- It oeased
when tho lava had reached within
eight miles of Hilo.
lfc5U. This yoor witnessed one
of the grandest displays ever seen
on Hawaii. Tho lava broke out
on tho northwest side of Mauna
Loa, somo 3000 foot below the
summit, and took a northwostorly
oourse; almost straight to' tbo sea,
somo twonty.fivo miles distant
south' from Kawaihao. Tho flow
lasted for thirteen months, and'
1865. An eruption occurred
December 31, confined to tho
orator, and oontinned for four
1868 On March 27 thero was
a heavy explosion on tho sonth
side of Mauna Los, somo distanco
below the summit, when a largo
stream of lava burst-out and flow
ed rapidly down to the eoa. So
euddgnly 'did this take place, that

Ibid. A Bimuar eruption, con
fined to tho summit crater, and
continued in varying activity for
1875.' This was also in tho
summit crater of Mokuaweoweo,
and lasted about ono month.
1877. Feb. 14. A repetition of
the abovo lasted two days. A
submarino oruption occurred dur
ing this year near Eoalakeakua,
when tho sea was covered wfth
blooks of pumaco stono floating on
1880.A short oruption in the
Bumrriir orater similar to those, of
1872, 3,'5 and 7.
1880. In November of this
year, the. volcano broke out near
the summit, on tbo northeast side,
with a Very large flow, which con
tinued for nine months.
1881. In January of this, year
there was an eruption in tho.sea,
near tho shore, at East capo,
1886. Tboro was a small orup
tion in tho summit crater of Mo
kuaweoweo, which lasted but a
1887. An eruption took place
on tho southwest slope of Mauna
Jjoa, near tho large now of lbus.
It continued for two weeks.
1896. After on unusually long
period of rest, the crater of Moku
on the 21st of April.
1899. This last oruption com
menced with a grand explosion on
the morning of July 4, as though

the eruptions on the island of Ha
waii during tho present century,
so far as appear by tbo records at
hand. It bIiows twonty-throo
eruptions, not inolnding the first
twenty yoars, of which we havo no
autbentio data, excoDtina that of
Hualalai in 1801. It is quite-pro-bable
that, wore the data of the
first twenty years known, it would
show that volcanic eruptions of
some kind have taken place, evory
four years, on an average, during
tho centnry now onding, and also
that the volcano is probably quite
as active now as during any of
tho recent centnrioj.
In tbo case of "Ward vs. Desky
and E. Peck & Co., Ltd., Judge
Periy has denied the prayer for
an injunction in that tho causo
complained at tho tirao of tho
filing of tho petition no longer
exists. Tho complainant however
is not barred from moving on the
petition showed at any future liino
cause bo givon. Tho oourt finds
for the complainant, in that her
land is ontitlod to lateral support
and a decrco ncainst tbo respon
dent corporation for relief from
tho destruction of lateral support
will bo signed on presentation.
Tbo 0. 11. & L Go. has filed its
