"It Is not foreseen at this time that the war will delay construe- tlon of the building. 4- "Pending assurances from Washington about this matter, I have delayed decision as to enlargement of the present postoffice.

It may a largely be because less freight Is -coming In to Honolulu from the Orient owing to the scarcity of ves selV and the huge profits new being made by steamer owners for carrying cargoes from the Orient direct to San Francisco and other Pacific coast ports with no stop at Honolulu.
