an enterprise involving the filling and
grading of a large area of land near
Kakaakn and the expenditure of
something like $200,000.
While the supreme court's decision
may prove adverse to the territory,
which is the defendant in the suit,
this is not anticipated, and the big
work probably will begin within the
next two or three weeks. The con
tract already has been let to the
Ijord-Voung Engineering company,
which is merely awaiting this decision
before starting active operations.
..The suit is .in the nature of a test
case brought, by Cecil Brown against

ascertain definitely the legal author

Expect Some
Delay On The
Not Believed Any Appointment
Will Be Made for Month
or More
That there will be a delay ot a
month at least in action on the reap
pointment of Governor Frear is the
belief of those who have followed
Secretary Fisher's investigations here
closely and who are acquainted with
the circumstances.
Secretary Fisher will not go direct
ly from here to Washington, although
he will be at the capital' in a compar
atively short time. He stops at sev
eral places enroute. Moreover, there
is a great mass of testimony to be
Iranscribed, some of which President
Taft may wiah to see. This testi
mony will be several weeks in reach
ing Washington.
There seems a general expectancy
that Fisher will report to the Presi
dent as soon as he reaches Washing
ton, but also there is a tendency to
believe that the President will not
act until after the election and very
possibly not until after Congress con
venes for the winter session.
