Containing, Pauw,,th Greatest Vpicano.ot Its Kind in the World,, Should BeJnthe Keeping of the National Governnient Suggestion of Oregon Visitor Meets Unanimous Approval. ,3y co-incidence. the,-suggestion. of Edyth Tozier Weotherrcd that Kilauea should be made a nationa park, is also advocated in Wash' ington by A. B. Ioebcnstein Hilo's representative on the committee sent from the Territory to work in the interest of the Refund Bill. The Washington Post of Feb. 6 says: "Albert B. Loebenstein, of Hilo, Hawaii, who is stopping at the New Willard, has traveled 6000 miles with the avowed object of, suninit of MauuatfI,oa. inviting the United States govern ment to commit the larceny of a volcano. The volcano is the pro perty. a corporation composed, of American citizens, unde,r,the.,terms ofalcaduly executed and recorded which, lease, has yet six years to run. Apparently the fiery cone is dissatisfied with the terms, of the lease, for it has actually moved itself bag and baggage oft the leased tract, and is now serenely doinc business, on government land at a safe distance beyond the boundary line. "Mr. Loebenstein wants the government to take advantage of the situation by laying claim to,the volcano, because it happens to have left the reservation and, wandered pver onto , government, land, and making it the star feature of a national park. Yet a prominent lawyer in Washington says the government has no more right to the volcano than it would to a steer, that had broken out , of,its pasture and strayed upon public lands. "This singular situation has been developed through the sole eccentric city of what is otherwise the most ladylike and well-behaved, volcano in the world. The volcano in which stands on the southeast; flank of Mauna Ioa, the world's greatest volcanic mountain, on the, Island of Hawaii. "Measured.frotr sea, level, Mauna Loa is a vast, rounded dome 14,000 feet high. f Measured from the bottom of the ocean it has an alti tude of more than six miles, and bos a base 160 miles in diameter. "Kilauea is a separate peak, or gather .it is a mere bump or excre scence on the side of the great mountain at an elevation of 3000 feet. In the top of this hump is a crqter nine miles it circumference. The floor of the crater is a lake of) lava that has cooled off. Inside this crater is still another crater called Halemaumau, which is a boiling seething iRke of molten lava. At the present, time the mpjtenlake is. ?5ot?y i5o,feet and its surface is j 50 feet below the level of the larger crater, but both area and depth very greatly. "Kilauea and, in fact, jill ,o( Ma una 03, which has a vast crater on s summty caHcd, Mokuaweoweo is a refined volcano of irreproach able deportment, which ha9 never been Known to descend to boister ous and vulgar explosives, like acquire the volcano and make it accessible for .tourists. The com pany leased a tract six miles square from Mrs. C R. Bishop, a woman of royal lineage, who married an American who became one of the mpst.jprominent financiers in the Hawaiian Islands, built a hotel with accommodation for 150 guests, on the rim of the crater, constructed a railroad from Hilo to a point within an hour's drive of the Volcano House, and a bridle path to the The enter as it was as successful prise was vel. j . , . . "The crater of Halemaumau, when the base was executed, stood on the tract of land called Keauhou. Since the first survey was made, in 1873, Halemaumau has moved soiith along .the floor of Kilauea's crater 1783 feet, and has crossed the, (boundary line of Keauhou into Kapapala, which is not included in the lease. "Mr. Loebenstein is able to give exact figures, because he is a civil engineer, who was recently engaged to make a topographical survey of the region. It should be under stood that the inner crater of Halemaumau has not disappeared in one place, and, broken out in a new-spot, DUt mat u uas worccu itself'along the floor of the outer crater foot by foot tor a third ot a mile. w , .'-'.While I do-not wish to see any private rights violated,' said Mr. Loebenstein, '1 should like to see Mauna Loaset a side as a national parJclikeiY4,QJSvstoi55 ?Vk' n country;. around..Kilauea has much that'tnagmficcnt and .much that is freakly, though in a different way from Yellowstone Park.

The surroundings, are majestic in out line aud4clohed in eternal green of many shades.
