Owners Say Attorneys Have No Instructions to Delay Settlement by Separate Suits. (From Thursday's Advertiser) That motion by attorneys for tho owners in tho pending Manuka sito ca?c3, for separate trials, indicated an intention to make a technical fight and delay tho final decision, was denied by Castlo & Cooke nnd E. O. Hall & Son yesterdny. Tho motion has l)ccn regarded hy many as part of a plan to make n lone drawn out contest, whlcli might result in tho appropriation lapsing, and a renewal of tho wholo controversy over the location of tho site. "Tho move for a separate trial of our enso was mnde by our attorneys in accordance with their own best judgment ns to the proper way to protect our rights," said Oscar White, president of E. O. Hall & Son. "I do not know all tho reasons are, but am sure at least that there is no effort to delay matters. Our attorneys have instructions, on tho contrary, to proceed for as quick settlement as possible. "Thcro nro somo respects In wlucu our case is different from tho others. For example, wo have had tho uso of our Fort street sito for about sixty years, and our claims of loss in being forced to abandon it nro different from those of any other firm involved. It is for the nttornoys to say what is tho best method of trying tho case." E. D. Tenney, president of Castlo & Cooke, mado a similar statement. "I am not personally familiar with tho details of tho procedure being followed," he said. "Our attornoys aro using their own best judgment as to ttio proper ptoceduro to protect our rights. If they want a separate trial of our enso it is becauso they think our issues are best presented tlmt way. Thoro is certainly no intention on our part to work for dolav." Tho matter will como fccroro Judge Dolo Saturday and tho court will then fix tho dates for tho differont trials. Lieutenant McGleary Hero.

Tho hearing of the opinions of tho general public in regard to tho proposed resolution endorsing amendments to the Councss franchise, for power to manufacture and sell electric, light and power, will probably bo tho most interesting of tho meeting of the board of supervisors on Thursday. That there will bo conjidcrablo discussion is certain. Tho Hllo Electric Light Company will bo represented, nnd will opposo tho resolution. It is nlso certain that amendments will bo proposed by somo of tho supervisors. One of these will provido that tho power to sell light nnd powor bo granted provided a maxilnum chargo is inserted into tho franchise. One of tho supervisors says that ho will voto ngainst tho resolution unless it is pro vided that nil tho wires bo placed under ground within city limits. Question ol Power.

On tho wholo tho matter of tho giving of a right to uso the river wator has been brought up for discussion again, and in this connection a now viow is being presented, from several sources, in respect to tho action of tho government in granting tins rignt. it is pointed out that tho right is without doubt valuable; at least, tho Conncss peoplo would bo suro to bid, whilo tho Electric Light Company might be electric light company might bo looked upon as a probable bidder. The Territory, many think, ought to placo tho water right up at nuction, in order that all might have a chanco. INDICTMENTS FOUND IN DYNAMITE CASES INDIANAPOLIS, 'February 0.

Gradually tho disease began to affect my limbs in the eamo wanner. They became terribly asvollon ami I had to givo up my work. Tho pains then Bprcad all over mv bodv and were sham and shooting. They would suddenly shift from one part of tho body to another but fortunately did not seem to affect my heart. For three months I was propped up in a chair and had to bo waited on.
