Now that a new county 'building
and a new Rclioolhouse are about to
materialize at Wailuku, the question
"f what material sbn.ll be used in
their construction becomes a very
material one. The pretent court
house ai'd ihe present schoolhouse at
Wailuku are patent demonstrations
of tho fact that it is a .p'.ere of folly
to erect such buildings of wood in
this climate. The courthouse is al
ready a time-worn affair which in
gradually sinking into mellow decay,
and the schoolhouse is so far cone
that it ha3 already been condemned
as unsafe for children. .
No matter how substantially the
new county bui'ding and schoolhous-e
are erected, u" they are built of wood,
they will not last more than twenty
years at the outside, because wood
cannot resist the humid dampness
and tho wood-ants of this climate.
Built of brick or stone, they will b
just as good as new twenty years
hence, and will last for hundreds of
years, ana the tact or a ciuierence in
the original cost should not be allow
ed to cut any figure
The attention o' the legislature
and of the department of Public
Works is earnestly Invited to this
matter, and the News would res
pectfully urge that the fact that
permanent buildings are required
and that wooden buildings will not
stand in this climate should be duly
considered, in the matter of selecting
material of wuich to erect these
buildiugs. The attention of the mem
bers of the legislature from Maui are
especially invited to this matter, aud
on behalf of the people of Maui, as
well as on behalf of a sound use of
good judgment, our members are re
quested to urge the construction of
brick buildings for our pubiic uses.

The above score was the result of
one of the best played games of the
season, when the Start met the Tli
mas on the diamond last Sunday. The
Ilimas have developed a splendid
team, and only one or two more
games are needed to give them the
prac tice needed to fit them to sue
cesfullv compete with either one of
the league teams who have so far had
the advantage of last eeasou's prafr
tice, and if the ilimas continue to
improve they will rank with the best
teams in this year's league, before
the season is over. Iheir team was
well placed last Sunday, and had it
not been for reckless risks in running
bases by one or two of the team,
the score would evened up materially
A few curtain lectures by the cap
tain wiil probably overcome that
tendency in their future games. The
Stars of course played a good game,
they always do, but as a matter of
fact thev were hardly up to their
The Stars have organized a Morn
iug Star Club, composed of the play
ers and their friends, officered as fol

G. B. Schrader, A. Jackson, -and H
Meyer, Directors. The object of the
organization is to strengtben the
team. It will be a question whether
G. 13. Schrader,1 who has been elected
director has thus disqualified himself
Tomorrow's game will bo between
the Wailukus and Lahaiuas, and af
ter the game a lu:tu will be teiidereu
to the Lahaina team and their visit
ing friends, by the Wailukans.
On May 24, a week froiu tomorrow
will be one of the historical games of
the season, between ttte Wuilukue
and the Stars. Both teams are now
seasoned, and from a study of the
games so far played, it is seen that
tho Stars will have to play the game
of their lives or go down in defeat
It is said that Charley Thompson!
will be down, and that Charley Bail
ey will also take a hand with the
Wuilukus. If this team should line
up its full strength on May 24, a
game will follow which should draw a
crowd from all parts of the Island.

The Earthquake of '71.
Rr.v. Canon Weymouth of Lahaina
ecently received an interesting Ut
ter from Dr. Sereno E. . Bishop of
Honolulu, relative the sharp earth
quake at I ahainal'ina in 1870, from
which the News has kindly been al
lowed to make the following extracts.
Early In 1870, at Luhaiualuna, the
house in which I had lived for nearly
five years, was badly shatteted by
an earthquake, the center of which
was judged to be a little west of
Lanai. That older house was prob
ably built by Rev. Lorrin Andrews,
the founder of the school, about 1833.
We rebuilt it of wood, using the
old stone basement, and the flooring
of tho old house, as tar as it could be
made use of in various ways. That
flooring was apperantly of Austra
lian Eucalyptus. The carpenter and
mason employed was Thomas For
syth, who I believe, died recently On
I hope that tho occupants of the
house were caused no severe distress
by the fire also that a fine large
Cook (or Norfolk) Pine which I plant
ed, escaped destruction.
Very singularly neither of the oth
er two stone buildings there were
seriously damaged by that earth
quake. I judged that owing to the
nearest of my house to the brink of
the ravine, the vibration of the earth
there ended with violence, like the
snapper of a whip-lash. A few build
ings in Lahaina, suffered slight
cracks and I believe there were one
or two such case in Honolulu. Tho
earthquake occurred in the middle of
the night, and was truly distressing
to the nerves, so that the slightest
earth tremor woulu send us flying
out-doors. Several clight tremors
occurred for a week or two sub
sequent. LAHAINA LINES.
