The Kishi case will be taken to the

So much is certain, for the territor

refuses to sanction the payment of
the $12.uou appropriated for H. Kishi

siid today, will resort to a writ of

auditor has refused to issue the war

of immigration.
There is every possibility of the
KlKbi case reaching the supreme court,
though the mand-tmns proceedings will
