The opening session of tho Republi
can Territorial convention has been
characterized by a cordial spirit of
united and harmonious action highly
gratifying to every delegation, and we
believe acceptable to tho Republicans
whom they represent
The wheels of organization arc run
ning bo smoothly and with such abso
lute freedom from the cantanketous
friction which disgruntled politician.
, would like to Bee forced upon the party,
that tho convention is decidedly unin
teresting to Democratic sympathisers
who thought to see tho convention em
broiled In a row similar to that forced
upon the Honolulu muss meeting. The
discussion has been temperate and the
proceedings marked with dignity If not
despatch. Ample opportunity has been
allowed for full consideration of every
detail, there havo been no underhand
machine tactics from any source, no
slato mado its nppearanco to give the
calamity howlers of tho clique repre
sented by the Advertiser an oportunlty
to Indulge in their favorite pastlmo of
knifing tho party.
Tho only contest of tho uioiuli'i; on
tho temporary chairmanship arose
from a difference of opinion as to tha
disposition of hours between the isl
ands of Hawaii and Oahu. Hon. J. L.
Kaulukou representing tho flfth dis
trict of Oahu carried tho day with
comparative ease, and was promptly
given the unanimous support of tho
convention at tho suggestion of Mr.
Every detail of tho procce.llni;f
points to the happy conclusion that
factional dissension will not flguro In
tno first Territorial convention of Ha
waii's Republicans. The best interests
of the party as expresj"d by tho major
ity vote aro closo to tlm heart of every
delegate. There has been nnd It Is safe
to say there will bo iio dissension, no

INTEREST IN BICYCLE RACE.
Tho wheelmen of the city nro very
much interested in the bicycle race
that will lead off the 11th of June
events ns It has been whispered about
that there will be some very fast rid
ers on tho track. R. A. Dexter, G. A.
Martin, John Sylva ("Manoa Wonder")
and L. W. Merrill nro now In training
for tho race. Tho only other mnn who
has so far consented to rldo is Ulrlch
of tho Honolulu Iron Works who has
repeatedly beaten Allan .Jones, one of
the fastest Coast riders.
Ulrlch Is one of the Hay City wheel
men and ns such ho rodo In tho great
hundred mile iclay races that created
such an lntenst on tho Coast.
It Is probable that Ulrlch, Dexter and
Martin will be the scratch riders, whllo
tho other mui will be given handicaps.

PHILIPPINE CABLU SURVEY.
Washington, May 19. A new prog
ress mnp of signal corps tolegraph
lines and cables In tho Philippines Just
prepared under the direction of Ocnernl
Orecley Is of especial interest nt this
time. It shows not only tho system as
It existed on March 31, but also pro
jected military telegraph lines and ca
bles now In ptoccss of construction.
Telegraphic communication between
Manila and tho South has been entirely
dependent upon tho English cablo to
the Vlsayan Islands of Panay, Negroo
and Ccbu. This cablo which was
broken by nn earthquake on April 11
has not yet been lepalrcd and tho long
Interruption emphasizes tho great mili
tary Importance of tho nlternato tele
graph route to tho southern Islands
from Manila, which Is now being con
structed by the Blgnal corps. Tho sys
tem lecommcnded by General Mac
Arthur has been fully approved by Sec
retary Root nnd will bo pushed to
rapid completion. A signal cablo lias
already been laid from Ccbu to Lcyto
and Is being extended eastward to
Samer and northward to Luzon via tho
Island of Mnsbate. Tho military
scheme Is to have long stretches of
cable, supplemented by a short land
line as possible, so ns to ensure tho
greatest possible freedom from hostile
Interference with communication. The
military telegraphic system of Cebu,
via Samar, as soon as tho English ca-,
me is repaired, win auoru ucnurai
MacArthur two routes by which to
reach garrisoned posts In the depart
ment of tho Vlsayas. Tho extension
southward looks to tho connection by
cables of the very Important Islands of
Ccbu, Lcyto nnd Mindanao. Tho lat
ter island will bo renched by a com
bined system of laud lines and cables,
via cable from Negros nnd thus all gar
risons on this great Island will bo In
speedy communication. Ultimately, It
Is expected that Mindanao will bo con
nected by cablo via Zahboanga, with
Jolo and the latter with the Taul Tnul
It is expected that the entire Vlsayan
group will bo connected by military
lines befoie July nnd that tho southern
system of cables nnd land lines will be
In operation by the end of tho rainy
season. The extent and magnitude ol
tho telegraph and cable opetatlons of
the slgnnl corps In tho Philippines is
hardly realized or known. There aro
li!0 first class telegraph olllces. manned
by nearly 200 skilled operntors, who
handle by telegraph on the Island of
Luzon alone about 300,000 words each
day. In addition, there arc about 1G0
long distance telephone stations In
operation In various parts of tho nrchl-
The work of the slgnnl corps when
completed will stretch through nearly
fourteen degrees of latitude. Six slgnnl
corps cables aro now In operation nnd
In all probability tho cables and land
lines which wero nearly two thousand
miles In length on March 31 will aggre
gato at present 2,r00 miles. Whllo
branches arc for strictly military pur
poses tho most of these lines arc per
mancnt structures which will have u
very Important bearing In tho develop

COMMANDER TODD RELIEVED.
New York, May 19. A special to the
Herald from Washington, says:
Secretary Long has relieved Com
mander C. C. Todd from duty as hydro
graphcr of tho Navy and placed him
This nctlon is tho direct result of ef
forts of tho Coast and Geodctlo Survey,
supported by Mr. Cannon and other
Representatives to tako tho work of
oeean and Inko surveys from the Navy.
it is coniiucutly expected by Com
mander Todd nnd his friends that when
tho facts recelvo further consideration
ho will be reinstated to duty and prop
er steps tnken to relievo his record of
tho stigma now resting upon It.
Commander Todd has been zealously
laboring to keep the survey work under
tho Navy, because ho believes with his
brother officers that tho Navy and the
merchant ruarino can obtain better
charts and bo moro efficiently served
than If the Coast and Godetlc Survey
had tho work in charge.
Arguments ndvanccd by tho Navy
undoubtedly had much to do with tho
nctlon of tho Scnato in restoring tho
provision appropriating $100,000 for
canying on tho surveys under tho
Navy. This action was extremely dls
tastcful to tho Coast nnd Geodetic Sur
vey. Representative Cannon wroto to See
rotary Long asking him if tho. hydro
graphcr linil sent nny letters to "Indi
viduals, corporations, boards of trade
or chambers of commerc" in relntlon to
tho action of tho House In connection
with the ocean and Inko survoys, Com
mander Todd responded that ho had
Then Mr. Cannon nsked for a copy of
a letter sent to tho Hydrograph ofllccs.
Commander Todd sent tho communica
tion, but It was shown to bo nddrcsscd
to "Tho llranch Hydrogrnplilc Office,
New Yoik," "llranch Hydrographlc
Office, Chlcngo," and so on, nnd Com
mander Todd's friends insist that ho
was entirely correct in stating that no
letters had been sent to "Indlvldaula,
corporations, boards of trado or cham
bers of commerce."
Secretary Long decided to relievo
Commander Todd as hydrographer
pending n thorough consideration of
tho matter. Tho commander had tho
support of tho entlro scrvico in tho
courso ho has pursued. Secretary Lonsc
