Abstract

DURING the latter part of 1890 and the early part of the present year, the central activity of Vesuvius has very slightly varied, except about the new year, when it was considerably increased, rising to the third or fourth degree, simultaneous with the stoppage of the lateral outflow of lava that had been going on since August 7, 1890. Since then, up to the present outburst, the central activity has been generally at the first degree, and the cone of eruption has slowly grown in height.
