to be reached to this effect.
Proereis Is Rapid.
Already much progress has been

dry dock Is being constructed nnil
where provisions havo been minlo for
defensive foitlllcatlonH lu tho future.
Owing to a difference of opinion on
tho part of naval officers of high
rank theio bus been a doubt ns to
tho wisdom of establishing tho chief
Pacific base at this point or In tho
Philippines. Decision has finally been
made In favor of tho more central
position on tho ground that from
the Hawaiian base, tho navy can bo

defense as well as Insular protec
