Attorney General Dele on the proposed
renewal of the book contract. Mr. Dole
says that the contract would not be
binding on any one; that under Section
125 of the Civil Laws of 1897 the De

the schools at cost. Furthermore he
points out what must have been sug
gested by the common-sense of the
laity, that a contract btndlng the Ter
ritory for five years ought to have Leg
islative authority. This opinion should
put an end to the text book scheme,
which was rapidly taking on the ap
