any thins in order to shift respons

Having filled ad interim overy

available for any vacancy that
may occur. If it is nctivo pro

organ says that the President and
his secretaries do not "have' the

Tho statement comes from a
sourco high among local officials
that the President's land order
puts a stop to American settlors
obtaining land and thus tho in

Asiatics is met with no counter

is tuoro on record liore or in
