In snylng thnt a row Is brewing over
the refusal of Governor Dole to set
nslde any building for the use of the
Federal Judiciary Department here. Inasmuch
as a recent decision already
published, ncknowledged the sole right
of the Territory to control the buildings
It now offlclnlly occupies, nnd ns no
Territory Is under obllgntlons to house
purely Federnl officials, the chances of
a "row" are very remote Indeed. If a
building was available, which Is not
the case, the Territorial Government
would have no cnll to let the United
States Circuit Judge and the officials
connected with his court occupy It,
save on n bnsls of rental. In fact, under

Tho court holds thnt at electricity

method of propulsion which will place

Tho third clnlm of the Tramway?
Company was that It held an exclusive
franchise to lay tracks along nil streets
covered by Its tracks, except that It
conceded that the Rapid Transit Company
had the right to lay 1,700 feet on
The Rapid Transit Company disputed
this claim, nnd the question came to
issue upon whether the Rapid Transit
Compnny had the right to lay a track-along
King street paralleling the Train-way
Company's track; Alakea street
was also affected by this question.
The court holds that the Tramways
Company does not have an exclusive
franchise and that so far ns the Tramways
Compnny Is concerned, the Rapid
Transit Compnny has the right to lay
Its tracks on nny street, whether the
Tramwnys Company has a franchise
there or not.

The doubt as to Its right to lay
track on the streets occupied by the
Tramways Company, nnd the possibil
ity of a double track electric system
competing against It, has also affected
the Rapid Transit Company's credit
heretofore. The decision should pur

As there nre no restrictions against
Japanese going from tho Islands to tho

they are free to accept work there. As

but in view of the Increasing probability
of the acquisition of tho Burlington by
tho Northern Pacific-Great Northern ln.
terests, the Pennsylvania, It ls said, some
time ago began to make preparations for
alliance with another Western line,
choosing tho Atchison. The latter road
touches Kansas City, but docs not ex-tend
up to St. Louis, which ls the Western
terminus of the Pennsylvania system,
the two roads meeting only ln Chi.
cago. It ls said that there will bo no
connoction built between the two roads
by extension of tho Pennsylvania system
westward of St. Louis, nnd It Is not
believed that any Intention exists of obtaining
control of the Atchison by pur
chase of a majority of tho hitter's stock
by the Pennsylvania, but It Is said to bo
posslblo that a traffic arrangement might
without great difficulty be arranged by
which traffic could bo moved from ocean
to ocean over tho Pennsylvania and the
