It had appeared that the appeal of
tho United States from tho Judgment In
condemnation of land for uaval station
purposes against tho Honolulu Plan -

course ror Washington. Yet It ran
against a snag this morning which At
torney Dunne was unable to have re

Mr. Dunno applied for an order al
lowing a writ of orror In the case.
Mr. Mllverton objected to tho mat

Mr. Dunne, answering tho court's
query if he had anything to say to
the objection, said: "There Is nothing
to say. I stand on the writ Itself. If
them Is anything wrong with It the
appellate court will soon put mo right "
Judge Estee observed that If what
Mr. Mllverton said was correct, that
tho ground taken In tho particular ex
ception was Identical with what was
pleaded on the motion for a new trial,
tho court could not certify tho writ
as correct. There was no appeal from
a refusal of a motion for a new trial.
Mr. Dunne, In further discussion o
tho point, ussured the court, on hli
honor as a member of the bar, that
nothing of the kind appeared In tho
