LIKES MAUI IDEA.
The Iao Valley flood on Maui has re
sulted in the creation of a permanent

large consequence on that island. The
idea is an o client one and might well
lie adopted ; lso by Kauai. We are li
able to Hoods in our valleys, destruct
ive fires in our towns or other disas

people in need of immediate assist
ance. t would then be that such a

the ridge of rock snlt seven miles long

New York and Boston.
OUR EASTERN COAST SINKING.
In Time, Thousands of Years, Per
haps, the Atlantic Ocean, According
to Geologist!, Will Flow Over the
Cities That Now Tower Above Its
Government geologlcnl experts have
calculated that New York, Boston,
Philadelphia nnd all the other cities
along the Atlantic coast will eventual
ly sink beneath the ocenn. They have
observed that there has been n steady
sinking of the whole coast, and they
say that it Is going on nt the present
Geologists bnve long recognized the
fact that the Atlantic coast line was
much farther out than It Is now. There
is a line from 100 to 300 miles off the
present coast at which the water sud
denly gets deeper. Out to that distance
the water Is generally about 300 feet
deep. Then It plunges suddenly and
becomes ten times as far to the ocean's
bottom. The men of the coast survey
have traced this line throughout the
length of our coast line and find It
similar nil along. The geologists say
that the continent once reached out
that far and that there was the coast
line, but n gradual decline through the
ages has caused that line to retreat,
until now It Is where we know It.
From a geological standpoint this
has happened In comparatively recent
times. It has nil been done since the
glacial period. This brings it into the
present period nnd makes the action
new. In fact It Is positively known to
be going on now.
There Is an ancient sill in the Charles
town navy yard at Boston with re
gard to which there is definite informa
tion as to Its elevation. It was put
in place seventy years ago; Its eleva
tion was given with relation to mean,
high and low tide, and also with refer
ence to surrounding landmarks. With
relation to the tldo this sill has sunk
seven-tenths of n foot. With relation
to the landmarks It has the same posi
tion, a positive proof that Boston har
bor and the city about It have sunk
seven-tenths of a foot Into the sea In
the last seventy years.
The original mouth of the Hudson
river Is now 200 miles out to seu. The
ships follow its old channel in leaving
port even now. It is not known how
long ago It was when the mouth of the
river was not far out In the ocean. But
It Is almost a certainty that when a
similar time has elapsed the present
city will be an equal distance from the
Similarly will Boston be submerged.
Baltimore will disappear nt about the
same time and great portions of Wash
ington. The great Mississippi is bring
ing down great deposits to raise Its
delta and counterbalance the decline.
So low is New Orleans that it will be
one of the first cities to sink below the
sea level and be n municipality high
walled against the enemy, the sen. Gal
veston has already felt the encronch
ment of the waters and has been forced
to build Itself n sea wall.
The geological survey makes topo
graphical mnps. On these lines are run
nt given elevations. For instance, a
line may be run about Manhattan Is
land nt a level twenty feet above the
water at the Battery. It would sub
merge the customs house nnd extend up
Broadway nearly to Wall street. From
the east It would Invade the financial
district almost to Nassau street. It
would overflow half the land between
the city hall and the East river. Far
ther up it would submerge a narrower
Btrlp, but its intrusion would create
A fifty foot rise of water would wipe
Manhattan Island out entirely. Of
course. If these depressions came on
very gradually the water fronts would
be diked against their Intrusions. In
this way New York city might be saved
from destruction for a very long time.
It will inevitably become a city sur
rounded by a high levee, against which
the ocean will beat with an ever In
creasing advantage. It might perpetu
ate itself by artificial means, but in the
end it will be put in an impossible posi
tion. The waters will follow over the
flats of New Jersey and of Long Island.
They will even beat back through
the Delaware and the Chesapeake and
get beyond the city nnd cut off com
munication with the main part of the
land. Finally, New York will find lt
self a city down In a well far out from
the am inland. Gradually the people
who dwell in it will desert it and re
pair to the then mainland. The waters
will eventually lap away the great
walls that have been built to keep out
the sea and will tumble In among the
skyscrapers. W. A. Du Puy's "Uncle
