Mauna Loa eruption and Furneaux, 1881.

From Our Hilo Correspondent.

Editor Saturday Press:—A large column of smoke stills issues from Mauna Loa and the end of the three flows, which are seen very distinctly from here, prove that there is great activity at the source of the flows. Large numbers of the people of this place have visited them, and there is someone going almost daily, as it only takes about two hours to reach the flows nearest Hilo. It is generally conceded that the flow or flows must come to the sea unless it should change its present course) somewhere near Waiakea. Mr. Furneaux, the artist, has been making some fine views of the flows as seen at night. His pictures are very correct always. We may consider ourselves fortunate in having an artist on the spot. He will also visit old Kilauea which is quite active, as I was told this morning. We had a report a few days ago that there was nine cases of small-pox at Kona, but it was found to be not so. We have not had a single case in the district. No place in the islands, or perhaps in creation, is more healthy than this district.  J. A. M.

Charles Furneaux and the Sublime, 1882 / 2016.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO.”]

Our master painter Mr. Furneaux hung his paintings of the volcanic crater at his office in Aliiolani Hale to show it to the public. This Wednesday, he has invited the Members of the Legislature to go and see his work. They are just so beautiful.

Passing of Mrs. Kauhane Kanahele, 1922.

MRS. KAUHANE KANAHELE HAS GONE.

MRS. KAUHANE KANAHELE.

O Mr. Editor:—Please give me some open space of your paper, so that the fellows and friends will know that Mrs. Kauhane Kanahele has left this life.

For many months past she was wasting away with sickness, and a cure was sought in any way that would keep her alive; however, because of the strength of the sickness which she suffered, the silver thread was severed, and the bucket at the spring was smashed, and she went to sleep the sleep of all seasons; and it is with great sorrow and endless aloha that I grieve for her.

Mrs. Kauhane Kanahele was born at Keei, South Kona, Hawaii, in the month of May, 1864. There were two of them, two girls from the same loins; her elder sister died first, that being Mrs. Oneha. She married a man earlier in her youth, and from the two of them there are two children surviving; a son in America, and a daughter living with her many children. Continue reading
