J. II. Harbour, wbo, in company
with his daughter, Miss Fanny Bar
bour, returned to this city last week
from an extended trip td the Ha
waiian Islands, was visited by a
representative of tho Mercury. Tho
gentleman greeted the scribe in his
usual genial manner. His appear
ance indicated that the trip had been
beneficial to him. After the cus
tomaiy formalities, the scribe in
quired: "What kind of a time did you
"A very delightful one, although,
as we left San Francisco in n storm,
n somewhat rougher one than usual,
involving unpleasant experiences in
the way of seasickness, lor wnicu,
however, wo felt amply compensated
by tho pleasures enjeyed while on
What interested you most?
Well, first, the great difference in
the flora and foliage from anything
wo had ever before seen; second,
the volcano of Kilauea; and, third,
the resources, commercial interests
and governmental administration.
The llora is thoroughly tropical and
wonderfully varied and luxutiaut.
On entering the harbor of Honolulu
one can hardly believe that a town
of 20,000 inhabitants is hiddeu
among the trees and groves before
you and their graceful forms and
unfamiliar names bring homo to you
the fact that you arc indeed in n
strange and foreign land.
Is tho climate opprcssingly warm?
Oh, no; the temperature ranges
from 80 to 90 in the day time and
from 70 to 80 at night and is very
uniform all the year round.
Is the Volcano near Honolulu?
Xo ; Honolulu is on the Island of
Oahu, and the active volcano is on
Hawaii, about 11 miles inland, and
something more than a hundred
miles from Honolulu. It is n won
derful place and you know is the
largest accessible crater in the
world, being nearly circular in form
and nino miles in circumference.
Was it active during your visit?
Well, we thought so, although as
compared with the tremendous dis
plays that sometimes occur, I sup
poso it was comparatively quiet at
the time of our visit ; still we saw
enough to shake our nerves nnd en
title the show to rank as tho great
est sight of a lifetime. Wo de
scended into tho crater and spent
several hours in its cavernous
depths. Its hot and smoking Java
burned our 6hoes and faces as wc
cautiously followed our guide oyer
places hard and firm enough to hear
us up, but under which wc could
feel tho great waves and surges of
white hot lava dashing and roaring,
shaking tho thin crust on which wc
walked, and forcibly suggesting
cremation. Ono place of about nn
acre, fell in a few moments after wc
crossed, and tho boiling mass over
flowed the path we had just come,
and wo frequently crossed great
fissures from whicii the heat and
steam came up from lower depths.
We stopped several times at holes
in the crust, into which one could
look upon and sometimes reach with
our stick the molten lava, hut the
heat and sulphurous fume could be
endured for only nn instant when
retreat became imperative. We
spent four days at the Volcano
Houso, which is just on the edge of
tho crater n very well managed and
comfortable place; then went on
horseback to Hilo, thirty miles
awaj', over the roughest sort of a
trail across old fields of lava from
former eruptions. Spending fivo
da3's at Hilo, wc took the inter
island steamer and returned to
Tho resources of the Islands are
mainly agricultural nnd horticultu
ral, especially the latter ; but hardly
any attention is paid to anything in
this lino except sugar cano. Every
body has gone wild on sugar mak
ing, while many other productions
requiring far less outlay to intro
duce and successfully produce, are
given no attention.
You spoke of the coyernment,
how did this impress you?
Well, as very much of a farce.
The Hawaiian Kingdom is tho only
place 1 know where tho intelligence,
the wealth and tho material inter
ests of tho country nro almost en
tirely unrepresented in the (Jovcrn
incut, while the ignorant, supersti
tious, indolent aud immoral clement
makes the laws, assebscs the pro
perty and spends tho revenues. Tho
foreigners, who do all that is done
toward developing the trado and
resources of the Islands, and pay
most of tho taxes, are uneasy and
restivo, but divided in sentiment and
feeling. Tho Americans, English,
Germans and French, each wish
their own country to havo tho most
influence, as all recognizo that a
change of government Js only a
question of time, and that at tjip
rato tho natives are dying out, with
tho admitted evils of tho present
administration, that time cannot bo
far off, Tim American element is
numerically the strongest, and its
Influence should m most potent,
but the policy of tho American Gov
ernment is so narrow and insular
that its own citizens in foreign lands
feel no assuranco of even moral
support in any effort to promote
jiisunci American interests. Every
iihigUshmAn, German or Frenchman
feels and acts as though tho wholo
hm, in any rcasonnhlo effort to
promote its interests, while citizens
of United States knoy" their own
country has hardly a seaworthy
ship in its navy, or backum'0
enough to fortify its oun harbors
Much is said in icgard to tho le
lations of Mr. Sprockets to tho
Islands, and to the Hawaiian Gov
ernment; what do you think about
Mr. Spreckels, in my opinion,
has done moro to develop the
material interests of tho kingdom,
stimulate enterprise and promote the
growth of its trado and commerce
than all other Inlluencos combined.
Notwithstanding his rapture with
the king, who for the piesent, has
everything his own way. Mr.
Spreckels is still, and will contiiiuo
to bo n power in that country. He
has ventured his money freely in
various large cntrpriscs there, and,
while ho has made them profitable to
himself, his efforts havo been im
mensely valuable to others nnd to
tho cotiutry. Ills sharpest critics
are the men who have followed wlicu
ho pioneered the way, and, envious
of his success, now simp at his heels
with much more noise than effect.
