** No Hilo - Regarding Hilo

REGARDING HILO - In news from Hilo we heard that in these past weeks there were terrible amounts of rain in Hilo, and torrents of water flowing in the streams. At the shore, the sea was rough, and when the whaler that just came in from Hilo departed there, the cargo of the Kate Lee was not unloaded. It was also heard that the fires of "the woman of the pit" were somewhat blazing. The lava of one lake rose, flowed out and filled some other pits below. In Hilo and Kaʻū, the tremors of the earthquakes was strong.
