Is Consumatipn1 of Eighteen
Years of Work; Is Now lo Final
Stage " ot Construction and
Soon WH1 Be Put To Use By
After elgbtecn years of constant work
in .straightening, deepening and widen
ing .the channel to Pearl Harbor from
the epen sea and in establishing; and
developing a naval station and con
structing a drydock, the latter will
probably be readfor service in August
of this year.
t Tee great dock, which has tested the
finesse . of engineering skill and also
tested the patience of the builders, is
now in the finishing stages, witn all the
vast concrete slab laid ami joined andj
the si Us being laid in position. There
yet remains the great caisson gate-to be
floated over and hung in position.
The dock was a water-dirt excavation,
angling off the eaat loch of the harbor
and because of the extreme friable con-1
dition of the substrata, gave insufficient
foundation when the concrete was being
""poured 'under the ' original " contract.
It collapsed and "blew up" under hy
drostatic presume, and entirely new
specifications for its construction had to
be devised, after experts in dock build
ing visited the site and decided upon
the concrete slab method, This, it is
believed, will be a flawless success.
Whether sn old type naval vessel or
one of the newest designs shall' be the
first vessel to enter the dock to test out
its capabilities has not been decided on.
The dock will take the largest type
of warships now constructed by the
American government.

There is a persistent rumor in guard
circles that the First Resimeut is to
be called into active) service soon
within thirty days but confirmed by
none of the officers. Yet rumor has it
that some of the oflicers have thrown
out hiuU to their men that they may
expect to be in federal serviee in the
near future.
However, the activity of officers of
the First Regiment here to recruit the
regiment up to war strength, the al
nioet. daily advertisement of the fact
that more and more recruit are wanted,
together with the oousSsTnt instruction
of officer as well us euJitod men, give
color lo the rumor.
T&at the selective draft may call in
to service for national army purposes
a large number of guardsmen of draft
ace, who have already been classed in
Class 1 of the draft, appear to be a
cert ai sty, while the guard stripped of
these men will still continue to be a
guard regiment, the nucleus of on or

finally brouuM into service as s. second

There Is also a probability of more
than one regiment of the national army
being formed here, with many of the
men of draft age druwn to fill out pos
sibly one or two regiments, to be the
