Whereas, In order to comply with
tho conditions required by tho United

opening of Illshop street along Kile!

uud subsequently paid about $35,000.00,
In full confidence that the United

HcBohed that if s'uch action has been
taken as to make it inexpedient for

On March 13, 1007, at'tho request of
Mr. JI. A. Taylor, representative of the

Tho Wnterhoiiso Trust Company had

Tho Watcrhoiisc Trust Company, In
putting In tills original hid of f 117,500

about 14,000 square feet, and for whlcl
II would hnvo to allow $.13,000. When
Mr..Tuylor Insisted on the pilco being
reduced to $1(M,125, tho Waterhousi
Trust Company felt Justified In mak
lug this reduction, believing that the
Government of tho Tcriltory of Ha
wall could ho Induced to purchaso tin
necessary land for tho street and open
tho mime to public use. As I lie guv
eminent declined tu purchase tho prop
city for tho stieet, the only wi(V tin
trust company could comply with the
Secretary's requirement was to secun
the amount necessary to open Hit
street, namely, $35.01)0, by olnnlaiv
subscriptions on tho pirt of those 111

Izens. One-half of this amount win
directly obtained from the vendors o

price to be obtained for their laud. The
money raised for tho opening of the
street was with tho distinct under
standjng that a Federal building kIioiiIi
be placed upon tho Muhuka Mto ad
