CHICAGO. Word eomcs from Ha
waii that the volcano of Kiiauea is
again ill a very troubled state. Thus
far the outbreak is not as violent as
that of 1S&4,- but it- possesses that pe
culiar interest -which has always cen
tered around the least disturbance of
this remarkable - crater.
One 'who has recently visited the
scene, among the hundreds who have
been constantly going there from
Honolulu during the past few weeks
as a sort of summer diversion, writes
to a friend in Chicago that the vol-
auo has broken out again with "great
violence." This dpes not mean, how-
er, that it is tin-owing up vast qtrtn-
tities of lava, as shown in pictures c.f
the eruption of Vesuvius, for Kiiauea
does not perform in that way. The
writer from the scene of the eruption
The fire is in the bottom of a fun
nel-shaped pit about 700 feet deep and
1,200 fect across at the top. The
shape of this oiiening is irregular, and
these dimensions make it look shal
lower than it is. The effect is conduc-
to a larger estimate of the out
break than it really warrants, for
though it lad's nothing in the clement
of interest and wonder, there is no
great danger to eople who keep at a

as wonderful and remarkably impres
sive. He says:
I'he approach to the volcano, over
three miles of cold, black desolation,
is weird nun uncanny, and no one
would be surprised at any occurence
that might take place. If the ghosts
of all the Kameluimehas, headed by
Pele herself, were to appear nifd for
bid the approach of the curious tour
ist, it would not taue much persua
sion to cause one to turn back with
out question. The approach is very
like walking over hell turned cold,
and the crater itself is hell in active
"The absolute silence of the whole
proceeding is perhaps the most im
pressive thing about it. You hear no
hissing, no spouting, no splutter; only
occasionally, when a fountain of lava
is thrown up. It fidls back on the
black or scarlet surface, with a soft,
gentle and yet terrible rustle, like tis
sue paper, which gives one some idea
of the quiot horror of a real flow of
lava down n mountain."
The same writer says that, before
the cone fell iu 1801, the fire was nine
ty feet nbove the ground, the melting
lava having formed a crust which rose
gradually until it reached that height.
There Is every prospect of Its doing
the slime now, but it. would take a
year at its present rate of progress be
fore it would be at that height again.
"This crater of Kiiauea," continues
the writer, "is deemed by geologists
the most astonlShing of all craters in
the world. It ohmis at an elevation of
almost -1,000 feet on the sides of the
great mountain of Manna Loa, which
is itself crowned by the funnel-shaped
crater abme referred to. The ellip
tical crater is no less than three miles
in length and seven miles iu circum
ference. The hollow of this abyss is
filled by a lake of lava, sometimes ris
ing and sometimes falling like water
in a well."
A pedestrian complained this morn
ing against the dangerous and care
less driving of a unlive haekman at
the Intersection of King and Fort.
Tile man came nlong there at a very
rapid pace and paid not the least at
tention to people afoot. One of the
latter had a narrow escape from lieing

ber of similar Instances lately. A good
