morning the return to tho alternative
writ of mandamus brought by tlip Pa
cific Oil Transportation Co. against
County Auditor Illcknell to compel him
to pay tho claim of $325 for crude oil
delivered to tho Kaplolanl Park.
. Douthltt was only yesterday given five
1 days In which to flto his return after
bis motion to quash had been donlcd
and demurrer denied also.
tllcknell In tho return denies that
the petitioner Is tha logaLowner ot tho
$323 claim chargeablo against the
County of Oahu. Ho also denies that
-the oil in question were supplied to tha
County or at Its request.
Illcknell further shows that tho poll-
tloner's claim was never legally exam
ined, allowed or ordered paid by tho
Hoard ot Supervisors on March 0, or at
any other tlmo. In this behalf ho con
tends that tho purported resolution

warrant on the County Treasury for

from Now York showed an advance In
the price of raw sugar, sales being msdti
