The Territorial The time for holding the Republican Ter
Convention. ritorinl Convention is drawing near and the
place for holding the same should be announced.
That Wailuku is justly entitled to the convention goes unques
tioned. The convention this year should be in Wailuku, and the
next should be held on the Island of Kauai atLihuo.
The holding of conventions at different places will demonstrate
to the voting public that the Republican Party is not centered in
one locality, and the delegates by holding the convention on the
different islands and intermingling with the voting population will
better understand the undercurrent of feeling than could bo gain
ed from remaining in one locality.
The facilities for caring for the delegates here are good, and as
the railroad reaches right into town, those who may prefer to stay
in Paia could do so with equal advantage as the railroad there is
also right in town.
It will be but a short time until a hotel is built in Kahului that
will accommoclute a whole convention, but as it is. there will be no
lack of accommodation for all who may come.
Let us have the convention.
The Races. The races of the Fourth of July on t he track of
the Maui Racing Association promise to be the best in the history
of the track, and already a large number of people are manifesting
much interest in the result of the contests of the Fourth. This is
very much due to the fact that new blood has been mtuseu into
the Association, and the wholo thing reorganized. The purses have
been made in accordance with th wishes of u majority of the
owners of local horsos, and all would be glad to see as many as
could coir.e from Hawaii and Honolulu.
The races afford the greatest amount of pleasure that is to be
had on any one day in the year, and all who have a spark of life
yet within their veins should attend and enjoy the greatest sport
of the season.
One day last week about five hundred persons were at the track
to witness the performance of the various horses that were on the
track for exercise. The horses were let out several times ana did
That such a large attendance should be on hand at this early
stage is evidence of the great interest that is developing.
The contest between island bred polo ponies and imported polo
ponies will be a special feature of interest.
To Complete the Calls for bids for the completion of the
Wailuku Jail. Wailuku Jail have been made and are pub
lished iu this issue of the News very much to the gratification of
the residents of Wailuku, who have urgd for years the building
of a suitable jail for the town.
When this building is completed no stone should be left unturn
ed to secure a suitable court house as the one now in use is in
dilapidated condition and is beyond repair.
The present site would be satifactory to a largo majority of the
residents here, who believe the grounds on which the court house
and old school house stand are the most available' places that could
be had and is particularly suitable os the new mil will then be ad
jacent to the court house
This is as it should be for the officers could look after the build
ing ana prisoners couiu be taken regularly from one building to
the other without expense to the government and without delay
both of. which reasons would be of material value.
I be new buildings and the construction of concrete sidewalks
are very noticeable features of the town, and we uo not fool that
we should allow all of the money we ray in taxes to be used for
the benefit of Honolulu when our public buildings are in such
dilapidated condition and wholly inadequate to our needs.
A mountain in prehistoric times a mountain stood where
Disappears. Lake Tuhoe now delights the thousands of visit
ors who yearly visit this beautiful lake.
Last month a mountain known as Monte deTula in the province
of Abra, on the Island of Luzon, did the same thins-, and ' is now
sunken out of silit and a lake is now formed in its stead.
The Manila Times of the 18lh of May has the following:
"Though there is no sign of the promised earthquake for the
Philippines a close neighbor is reported in the form of a large land
subsidence. According to the reports received from up north
whole mountain has disappeared and where it once was there is
now a lake about five acres in extent.
So violent was the subsidence that the shock was felt for miles
arouna ana many inhabitants in the neighborhood thought the
visitor was an earthquake.
lieutenant Fernandez, who reports the occurrence, reached
vigan, Ilocos Sur, about May 8. He says that while riding a short
distance irom Atup, about twnety miles east of Vigan, ami a few
uiuva ouuiiiuusi ui xjtnj;ueu, me capital oi vora, a lerriuio noisu
was heard, as if the globe were being torn asunder.
This was followed by a great commotion iu tho earth similar to
that experienced by an eartnquake but more violent. ALer riding
for a considerable time the center of the disturbance was reached
near the burrio of Arup, where it was found that a largo mountain
known as Monte do Tula, had settled down out of sight and in its
place was a lake of considerable size. He and those who accom
panied him did not care to venture too close to tho area of dis
turbance Lieutenant Fernandez savs he had not time to ascertain if any
lives wore lost iu the subsidence, but as tliure were natives living
on the mountain side thora is reason to fear the worst. The natives
in the vicinity are iu a state of terror. Manila Times, May lo"
