Extract from a recent edition of Vae
New York World. ;
As a result of the publication of this
article by the New York newspaper,
a 1 perfect deluge of letters . from old
men and young men; from fathers anc
sons all over the United States, lias
been flooding the office of General
Secretary , Paul Super, of the Yonui;

That the federal government is ap
propriating just as much money for
the federal building here on the en
larged site as on the originally-proposed
site, and that this building will
be ample for the needs for which it is
designed, is the declaration today of
the federal authorities.
District Attorney Breckons said
this morning that a little simple arith
metic shows that there has been no re
duction in the amount of money for
the building itself, even though the
additions to. the site through condem
nation have made necessary an In
crease from a million to a million and
a half as the aggregate limit cost for
both site and building. This increase
is provided for in the House bill in
troduced on January 6, 1913, by Dele
gate Kalanianaole.
Moreover, as the senate yestcrdiy
passed the public buildings bill, with
$40,000 for the federal building here, S
no uneasiness is expressed tnat tee
building appropriation will be later
cut down. Tee federal authorities had

Honolulu at the earliest possible date,
President S. G. Hindes' of the San
Francisco Bridge Co., contractors for
Ihe Pearl .- Hartor drydock, arrived
here this morning.-1 Mr. Hindes made
a flying connection between ; the
steamer and - a fast automobile,- which
took him first to the Young hotel,
where he left hl3 hand luggage, and
then directly to Pearl Harbor and the
scene of the wrecked ship basin. -
. Until he had seen for himself the
damage done by.1 the "blowing up" of
the drydock,- and had learned the de
tails cf the accident, and the probable
chances of future success from Engin
eer F. II. Smith, Mr. Hindes had no
statement to make as to the plans of
his company for continuing the con
tract. It is the general belief, how-
ever, that he is here merely to get a
first hand line on the situation, and
that the San Francisco Bridge Co.
will go after the work of conquering
the unstable bottom of the narbor,
harder than ever.' ; -
Conference Today.
Civil Engineer K. R, Gayler, U. S.
N., in charge of a! 1 Pearl Harbor con
struction, was in the city when Mr.
Hin'les arrived at the drydock site,
but an informal meeting between the
two was arranged over the phone for
this afternoon. Mr. Hindes will , theq
bare an opportunity to hear the details-
of the ' navy ,engineers, new
scheme for anchoring the drydock by
making 1 huge longitudinal blocks of
concrete on land and 'then setting
them on end alonr the bottom of the
basin, pouring concrete ' through
tremies between the blocks so as to
taake a solid concrete bottom 20 feet
thick. This method, which has been
worked out-ty Civil Engineer Gayler,
is brand new in - drydock construction
and was made known to the public
for the first time yesterday through
the columns of Tne Star-Bulletin.
The slue walls of the dock will be
formed in the same manner, by. set
ting under water blocks cast on shore
and filling the joints by pouring under
water concrete , through .- the. tremie
pipes. The side walls will be 21 feet
thick at the base, ana will - taper to
five feet at the top. It Is figured that
this style of constructfbn will add
two-fifths to the weight of the dock
had it been constructed under the old
method, which will te ample to keep
the bcttom from rising. . ?:"
Details of this plan will be forward
ed to the bureau of'yards and docks
ty the mail leaving this evening, "and
it is believed that Admiral Stanford,
who is familiar with conditions here,,
will approve of the judgment "of the
navy engineers on the ground. --;

more than enough for both ihe origi

It became known, today: that -the. to
tal, amount to be paid by the govern
ment in the Manuka condemnation
case is $465,336.71. or almost half a
million dollars. To this sum will be
added probably interest from the time
that the suit was commenced two
