"It la many Union more Important

Intended to establish the proposed

of the Institute, however, to secure n
volcanic site in order to observe the
local activities of a particular volca
no, ns well as tin' waves which pass
through the earth rrom distant earth
quakes. Professor Jaggar hat, for
Bomo tlino past, been Investigating
nud considering this subject. Ho hns
visited lite scenes of tho volcano nnd
enrlhquako disturbances In .Marti
nique, Italy, HI. Vincent, and Alaska.
In April,' ltiOD, he visited the Volcano
of Kllnuen, nnd then went to Japan,
where ho visited the Volcanoes Taru

Btudled tho lemnrknble stations and
Instruments of the Imperial Knrth

world which have totne to his knowl

"I. At other MilritiuM-s the erup

Kilauea. while displaying great and
varied netlvlly, Is relatively safe.
"2. Other volcanoes nru more or
less connected In chains, milking many
stations necessary In order to deter
mine tlm relations ot'tho different cra
ters to ench other. Kilauea and Mau
n a I.oa form an Isolated center of
activity, over 2000 miles from the
nearest active vent, so that the phe
nomena of these two vents can be re
corded without compllcUllous occa
sioned by other nearby centers.
".I. Kilauea Is very accessible. The
nearby harbor at Ililo Is only thirty
one miles distant; it may he reached
by railroad and a good drivuwny, and
Honolulu, a center of trndlo and sci
ence, is easily reached In a day.
"I. Tho Central Pacific position Is
unique, and Is of advantage for record
ing distant earthquakes through the'
uninterrupted scalloor which lies be
tween Hawaii nnd many earthquake
places such oh South America, Mexico
and Japan. For expeditions In case of
disaster or .otherwise, a relatively
short route Is assured, with abundant
means of transportation to Pacific nnd
