No definite information has been received.
Tlie above despatch was received last night by the Advertiser and contains
the latest news of the eruption of Mauna Loa.
The fact that there has been an outbreak at tho summit of the mountain
is remarkable. ,
Ordinarily lava does not issue from the summit crater and flow down tho
side of Mauna Loa. In lS3i tlieio was a short flow which began about n
thousand feet below the highest elevation. At another time there wns an
outbreak about one hundred and fifty feet from the crater but tho flow was
of very short duration.

a fine sight, whenever clear. According to reports
tho lava Is flowing faster.
According to other reports received from Hilo by wireless yesterday, the
eruption of Mauna Loa is assuming heroic dimensions:
One message stated that tho flow has reached tho sea after
a flow of about 30 miles. Tho stream of lava reached and destroyed
a part of the government road on tho Kona side of
tho flow of 1887. It is further reported that tho telephone
lines have, suffered and that traffic is stopped. A part of tho
Kahuku pasturo lands has sufferer" The flow Is advancing at
a rate of about 7 miles an licur. The steamer Mauna Loa Is
reported as anchored atPucaluu.

SMOKE DRIFTS HERE
There was a question about separate
schools for Japanese discussed at some
length at the Board of Education meet-Ins
yesterday. It wns not a proposition,
like thnt of the San Francisco
school authorities which has made a
noise around the world, to segregate
Japanese with other Asiatic children in
public schools especially established
for them. Beginning with conversation
about the lack of school accommodation
nt Wnlpahu and elsewhere, the
members drifted Into remarks on the
private schools for Japanese, with tl
tlon In their own language exclusively
which have been started here. All at
once the subject broadened Into n
question regarding all private schools
which In tho end the meeting was not
prepared to settle offhand, but decided
to consult tho Attorney General about
Its legal aspects.
Mr, Dodge started It with a query
which elicited a statement of the law
regarding private schools, and then
Mrs. Dowsett Insisted to the end of
the debate that the law should bo carried
THE LAW IN QUESTION.
To make the matter clear the sections
of the law In question are here copied
from the Revised Laws:
"Sec. 209. Any person desiring to es
tablish a private school shall make an
application In writing to that effect
to the school agent of the district In
which It Is desired to establish such
school, which application shall bo accompanied
by a memorial from tho
parents or guardians of the children
Intending to attend suchschool, stating
that the applicant Is the person of
their choice for a teacher of their children.
If the applicant possesses the
necessary qualifications to become a
teacher of the school proposed, the department
shall Issue a permit authorizing
Hie establishment or such school.
"See. 210. Every private school shall
bo subject to the supervision of the
department. It shall be tho duty of
tho department to require that teachers
of private schools bo persons of
good moral character; and that the
premises of such schools comply with
the rules and regulations of the department,
as from time to time
TO HUE OP
Pushers for Panpacific
"The cablegram from 1'. M. Hatch
to the Governor, announcing that Secretary
Moot pronounces the I'nnpacilic
Consular conference not practicable,
does not necessarily put the matter
finally out of discussion," said A. Hartley
yesterday. Mr. Gartley is tho member
of tho Promotion Committee who
first brought up the matter of a Pan-pacific
conference in that body and who
first persuaded his colleagues on the
committee that the matter was practicable.
"Mr. Hatch doubtless called upon
Secii'tnry lioot iu compliance with the
request of tho Governor, but it is possible
that he had not the data to present
which lie will shortly hno and it
is also possible that Secretary lioot has
not gone into the mntter. The scheme
of a consular conferencc'is so now and
novel that most aro at first glance apt
to declare it impracticable," continued
Mr. Gartley. "Many hero did so.
"When the matter was first broached we
wec asked, MVhrt could they do if
they did hold a conference?' but after
tho matter had been thought over a
littlo and gono into, many of those who
doubted the practicability uf the
scheme at first arc enthusiastic about
"The national meeting of representatives
of the different Chnmbcrs of Commerce
will he held this week iu Washington
and this matter will como up
there. Both the Honolulu Chamber of
Commcrco and Merchants' Association
will bo represented and it is most probable
that tho proposed conference will
be debated. At tho very least wc will
get a lot of publicity from the nITair.
"I do not consider Secretary Hoot's
opinion as final. The Governor has
written to tho President and wo have
many other wires out ns well. I have
not scon the Governor since ho received
tho cnblcgram from Mr. Hatch."
