Government has decided to lengthen
tho dock to 1195 feet will affect the
dalo of tho opening of tho bids In any
way is not known. Tho changes mlKht
be .Incorporated In tho specifications,
it Is said, or, on the other hand, tho
authorities may wait iiniil "the con
tract is awarded and then settle tho
matter through private agreement.
Although copies of the specifications
havo not been seen by local officers, it
Is thought likely that tho conditions
may be the Bame as those in tho Pearl
Harbor dredging matter. In that case,
the contract will bo signed within ton
'days of the time that t Is awarded, or
cn December 25, and work will begin
How long It will take to complete
thedrydqek can not bo told until the
plans and specifications have been re
celt ed here.
The fact that bids for the construc
tion .of tho drydock, and for the ftirn-It-lilng
of the rails and rolling "Block
for tho Peurl Hnrbor naval railway,
havo been called far so closo together.
In taken to moan that tho government
contemplates rushing tho work along
as rapidly as possible. It is believed
that the next mall will bring official
information with regard to tho status
of affairs, and, perchance, copies of
the plans and specifications.
Until the plans and specifications aru
received, naval officers stationed horu
will be wholly in the dark regarding
(ho Intentions of tho Navy Denirtmciit
officials at Washington.
