Charles R. Forbes, superintendent
of public works is being boomed for
the successor to William A.:.WalJ as

for granted by most of the politicians

new Republican administration takes
office on January 1, And rumor is now

Last . Saturday the statement was
made by Ajnan who is alleged to pos

Whitehouse is certain - to be appointed

On the other hand whispers of oppo-
one reason and another various people
say r that Whitehouse ' should no be
named. "'- ".i. v -:-JkAi- -:.'
v Just how far the movement oh be
half of Forbes has cone could not be
learned today. ' It. is conceded that
some opposition, to him would arise
from Republican politicians, because
he is now holding appointment to, the
territorial position under a Democratic
administration and presumably satis
fied the administration that he is
Democrat !tb whatever extent he : Is
politically active Op : the "other : hand
the movement to secure him as county
engineer, according to one of those in
terested in It, is a non-partisan move
ment based on the need for an effi

I look upon the telegrams relating to

lag cf ftny of bur warshln, and h.v, j
denied that any of the battleships hava

it is extremely unlikely that any cf r
