The Hawaiian Islands AS SEEN BY EUROPEAN EYES. The Famous Traveller Otto E. Ehlers writes his Impres sions of Hawaii and Hawaii an Matters to Kolnishe Zei tung. I write you to-daj-fromKilauea, the greatest active Yolcano of our Planet. All around dense volumes of sulphur and water vapors are belching forth. Be fore my eyes is expanded an endless lavabed, a soa of petrified waves, in the middle of which is tho crater Haiemaumau (the house of everlasting fire).BIoodred liquid masses of lava are surg ing to and fro, wbilo columns of fire, fountains of red hot lava are thrown up, now here now there often iu ten or more spots at tho same time out of the boiling fluid. I spent tho best part of last night in contemplating this unsurpassed wonder of the world, trying to compere my surround ings with what they must have been thousands of years ago. I have seen nothing in all my travels that will bear the faintest comparison with this sea of fire. While I was standing on the edge, the wall surrounding the lake bursted and a stream of lava ten feet wide welled, forth like a cataract of water, and in a few minutes spread itself like a ser pent all over the lavabed, so I and the guide had to beat a hasty retreat, and I couldn't help think ing that I already had one foot in Hell and I was quite satisfied with this as a start. It "would require a pen of Dante to describe the sensations, I experienced of the road to hell, which is said to be paved with good resolutions. Bnt the road to hell on tho Is land of Hawaii is paved with a more costly material. With the exception of the at present time vacant Throne everything stands pretty high in price; it beats all description. At first the stranger coming to this country tries to kick against having his pockot continually, tapped, he demurs against paying 25 cents for a glass of Sodawater, 75 cents for a bottlo of American beer, or 5.00 for at bottle of "Sec." He tries to get out of the way of people who are not satis fied with anything less than a handfull of dollars as their daily income, and wearied to death, he. picks up his food the same way as the little squirrel does, in any place and of any material avails, ble. For your plenty of money yon have in this country far less, than yon have in other countries, for far lees money. The Americans And sore especially the Aaierican missionaries hare filled the count ry and its population with, their woes oat haiabug aboat equality liberty and fraternity. Even the ChiBQge cook who receives Jt35 a saoeth sees to think, "What my master." If you happen to let a hack-driver wait a little longer than usual outside of your Hotel, while you are taking your dinner, you run the risk that he will saunter up to your table and if you should neglect to anticipate him with an invita tion ho will tell you that it is about time that wo have a "drink." From tho day of your landiug you are accustomed to havo this class of people refer toyouas"that fellow." Every body treats you as bon comrado . and everybody stands on an equal footing with each other, Minister and Bartender, Stablemen, and Chamberlains, Barberboys and Officers all alike. If you ring the bell in tho Hotel for tho waiter, he will probably appear after half an hour or so smoking a cigar or chewing an applo, and let you understand that ho is not therefor yourspocial accommoda tion, he will also give yon a hint about the impropriety of jingling that bell too loudly and too often. The Hawaiian Islands aro very ofton' referred to as "Tho Para dise of the Pacific." In truth that's what they really might bo without tho Americans, Atnoric anized Europeans and Asiatics, as it is they are now morelv a paradise for Hack drivers, Stamp Collectors and Missionaries. Tho latter reign hero as no where elso in the world. In thoir possession is an overwhelming portion of tho land and tho stores, and they really earn- on as if tho country belonged to them. That they havo not as yet entirely succeeded in destroying tho natives, who still to a certain degreo possess an amount of naivity, politeness, kindnoss and indifference to the filthy lucrw of this world, is certainly not the fault of the Missionaries. Tho last revolution in Hono lulu, which ended with the de throning of the Queen and estab lishing a provisional government is more or less tho work of the Missionariesk From tliO'STdst of their pariy is then consequently also tho present government elected. That a monarchy has already for a long time been a thorn in tho eyes of these apostles of Free dom, is not to be wondered at. However, if it had not been for the McKinley Bill, which imposed an import duty on raw sugar from which heretofore only tho Hawaiian Islands had been ex empt, and at the same time tha payment of a bounty of 2 cts. per pound for sugar prodaced in the United States, the deposing of the Queen and the cry for annex ation to the States would not havo been brought about so soon. Up to this time the Hawaiian Planters got for hk sugar in the American market 2i cents more than for exaniplo his Europe competitor who" also had to pay 21 cents iaport doty besides, a preference which brought thi little Island Klagdoaa with a po pulation of only 90,000 inhabi tants an incase aaaaallv ot $5,000.000- After the HcKinler (Ccstiatsed os third page) 3a A SPJECIA1TT. 79 nd 80 , Kiig St.fHonoll. ?
