History of Cavite, Philippines
- article below verbatim from: www.cavite.gov.ph
The provincial government of Cavite has a colorful history. During the greater part of the Spanish regime the provincial administration was handled by the alcalde mayor who was the representative of the governor and captain general in Manila. As alter ego of the Chief executive of the country, the alcalde mayor exercised over all executive, judicial, and legislative functions within his jurisdiction. He was in fact a petty captain general because he held under his orders the armed forces of the province for purposes of defense and maintenance of peace and order. By the Decree of June 25, 1847 the title of alcalde mayor in Cavite was changed to politico-military governor. He was also tripped of judicial functions.
The last Spanish politico-military governor of Cavite, with headquarters in the cabecera of Cavite (now Cavite City), was Col. Fernando Pargas whom Emilio Aguinaldo, as captain municipal of Cavite el Viejo (now Kawit), saw on the morning of August 31, 1896 to ask for a detachment of soldiers to protect his town from bandits. Aguinaldo’s plan was to ambush the government troops on their way to Kawit and seize their arms which his Magdalo followers needed urgently to start the armed uprising against Spain.
While waiting for his turn to talk to Pargas in his office, Aguinaldo learned that only one company of soldiers was left in Cavite as all available infantry men had been sent to Manila upon urgent summons from Governor and Captain General Ramon Blanco, who had placed eight Luzon provinces (Manila, Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija, Laguna, Batangas and Cavite) under martial law following the discovery of the Katipunan secret society.
With this valuable information, Aguinaldo returned posthaste to Kawit and with the help of two councilmen, Candido tria Tirona and Santiago Daño, led the assault and capture of the town’s tribunal (municipal building). Earlier that day the towns of San Francisco de Malabon (now General Trias) and Noveleta had risen in arms and taken over the control of the local government. It was this cry of Cavite on August 31, 1896, that signaled the beginning of the revolution. This soon spilled over to nearby provinces until it engulfed the entire country.
Spanish sovereignty in the Philippines was overthrown by revolutionists led by Aguinaldo. Historical documents show that during the revolutionary regime, Cavite had three politico-military governors: Mariano Trias, Emiliano Riego de Dios and Ladislao Diwa.
The revolutionary regime was succeeded by the American regime. Cavite had nine provincial governors from the start of the American regime until the establishment of the Commonwealth government in 1935. These governors were Mariano Trias (1901-1905; Louis J. Van Schaick (1906-1907); Leonardo R. Osorio (1908-1909); Tomas Mascardo (1910-1912); Antero S. Soriano (1912-1919); Luis O. Ferrer, Sr.; (1919-1921); Raymundo Jeciel 91922-1925); Fabian Pugeda (1925-1931) and Pedro F. Espiritu (1931-1934).
The Commonwealth regime lasted from 1935 to 1946. It was interrupted by the Pacific war and the subsequent Japanese occupation of the country. Three governors served during the first phase: Ramon Samonte (1935-1939); Emilio P. Virata, acting governor (1939), and Luis Y. Ferrer, Jr. (1940-1944). Ferrer was succeeded by Mariano N. Castañeda from May to November 1944.
The Japanese-sponsored Second Republic under Dr. Jose P. Laurel was proclaimed in October 1943. Dominador M. Camerino was appointed governor from December 1944 to the early part of February 1945. On February 13, Castañeda was recalled as governor by the commander of the advancing Allied forces.
The Commonwealth government was reestablished towards the end of February 1945 with Rafael F. Trias as the governor. He served for only a few months after he was succeeded by Francisco T. Arca.
The Third republic was established on July 4, 1946 by virtue of the Tydings-McDuffie Act. Manuel Roxas, the last elected president of the commonwealth, continued as president of the Third Republic. During that time, Dominador Camerino was appointed governor. During the end of his term, Mariano B. Villanueva and Horacio Rodriguez took turn of Camerino’s position.
Camerino was elected governor in 1952, but again toward the latter part of his term, he was replaced by Dominador Mangubat who acted as governor from 1954 to 1955. Mangubat was followed by Delfin Montano who was elected governor for four consecutive terms (1956 to 1971). Lino D. Bocalan succeeded him in 1952. He was replaced by Dominador M. Camerino who served as acting governor from October 1, 1972 until his death on July 24, 1979.
It was Juanito R. Remulla who was appointed as acting governor on September 25, 1979. Under the Third Republic, he was reelected governor on January 30, 1980. President Marcos proclaimed the Fourth Republic in 1981 and still, Remulla was in his service as governor until February 19, 1986. Fernando C. Campos succeeded him in 1986 to 1987. Remulla was still reelected for a long term (1987-1995). He was succeeded by Epimaco A. Velasco from 1995 to January 1998 and when he was given a position at the National Bureau of Investigation, Ramon “Bong” Revilla, Jr. was appointed in place of him. Bong Revilla served from February 2, 1998 to 2001. He was then replaced by Ayong S. Maliksi in 2001.
At present Governor Erineo “Ayong” S. Maliksi is considered the Father of Cavite who is holding a very important position in the province. For his years in service, he has continued serving the Caviteños towards advancement and great progress in various sectors. (Source: Saulo and de Ocampo (1985). History of Cavite.

Natural Resources of Cavite, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.

IMUS, Cavite — President Benigno S. Aquino III has declared May 28 which falls on a Monday as a special non-working day in this historical capital town in commemoration of the 114th anniversary of Battle of Alapan where the Philippine flag was first unfurled.
The municipality under Mayor Emmanuel L. Maliksi is celebrating National Flag Day (May 28) with a week-long Wagayway (Flag-Wave) Festival in the area.
The town’s landmark festival is a brainchild of the mayor and his father former Governor-now Imus District Congressman Erineo “Ayong” Maliksi.
The President approved the non-working day declaration for Imus last April 27. The declaration was contained in Proclamation 373 which Executive Secretary Paquito N. Ochoa Jr. signed.
“It is fitting and proper that the people of the Municipality of Imus, Cavite, be given full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies, the proclamation said.
The proclamation was made after Dr, Maria Serena I. Diokno and Ludovico Badoy, officers of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) endorsed a letter of Mayor Maliksi requesting the holiday,citing the the historical "Battle of Alapan." .
Alapan was the site of the victorious battle of the Filipino revolutionaries where the Philippine Flag sewn by heroine Marcelo Agoncillo in Hongkong received its first "baptism of fire."
The flag was waved in the May 28, 1896 battle as the revolutionaries led by Hipolito Saquilayan fought some 272 Spanish Marine Infantry men.
The glorious battle was the prelude to the continued victories of the revolutionaries which led to the proclamation of the Philippine indepedence on June 12, 1898, officials said.
In recognition of the historical event, Mayor Maliksi, with the support of his administration and Sangguniang Bayan (Town Council), proclaimed Imus as the "Flag Capital of the Philippines" and May 28 as Wagayway Festival Day.
The Wagayway Festival Day will be celebrated with the traditional parade, cultural presentations, musical concerts, song and dance contests,among other activities.
