inal plans required an outlay of $115,

the territory could pay, and the board
of supervisors refused to augment the
fund by taking the required additional
amount from the money belonging to
the city and county.
Very littie material change has been
made in the original plans and speci

government, asks a return of. $100,000,
and these who have been following the
case believe that the valuation which
the jury Is expected to return tonight
or tomorrow; will lie somewhere be
tween, these .two figures.
Bret kons, in. his argument before the
jury this morning, said he thought the
valuation should not be more than
$105,000, while Olson, in his opening
address, expressed the belief that the
most conservative finding could not be
concluded until late this afternoon.
The court's instructions probably will
be read then and the jury will retire
immediately. This is the longest ses
sion that has been held in the present
case, the daily period being from 8: SO
a. m. to 12:30 p. m. It was desired,
however, to finish all the argument in
one day and send the jurymen into the
consultation f6ora with the features of
the subject as reviewed and presented
by counsel fresh In mind.
One more condemnation suit of the
Mahuka series remains to be carried
through th court channels that Isto
determine the value of the leasehold
interest in the E. O. Hall site held by
E. 0. Hall & Son and the amount of
damage to which the firm should be
entitled in being compelled to move
to a new location. It is thought it
will be the shortest of all the cases
conducted this far.
Messrs. (V.tis and Trent, the nom
inating committee of the Honolulu
Merchants Association, were the busi
est men around town this morning.
The cause of their activity makes
something of o story.
Nine directois of rhe association are
elected annually, and they elect the
executive officers from among them
selves. I.ast ytar a clean sweep was
niade of the retiring boird entirely new
b'ood being elected to the directorate.
This was the or asion for some advene
criticism, as a result of which the
nominating committee on the present
occasion, for tlie annual election on
Thursday ntx'. submitted to the mem
bership a list or nominees containing
I-ve holdover an J f nr new names..
To the association membership in
general the slate would probably have
been satisfactory, but it nas turned out
that the nominees were not all con
sulted and some of them, for business
reasons, will not accept the nomina
tion. This fact has resulted in the
cancellation of the list and the hu t
Imp of the nominating committee to
l:nd nine men that will consent tn ad
vance to serve.
The United States circuit court
has admitted thirty-two of the union
labor orisoners to bail, but it is doubt
ful if the $1,070,000 bail necessary to
free all of them can be raised.
Dispatches Announcing Appro

An associated Press dispatch carries
the news that the appropriations for
fortifications. a3 reported to the house
of representatives yesterday, carries
an item of $700,000 for land and sea
coast defenses of Oahu. The appor
tionment of such a large sum to Ha
waii can mean only one thing that the
report of the board of officers which
convened here last summer to formu
late a plan "to make Oahu impreg
nable" is being acted upon, and that
work cn the fortifications recommend
ed will be immediately begun.
Tlio army engineers here have no
knowledge of such a prospective ap
propriation, unless it is to start work
on the big guns and position batteries

scheme for the protection of Pearl liar-
