PAGE THREE. JAPANESE MAY BE CAUSE OF DELAY IN BUILDING FORTS Reported That Their Bids Are Lower on Hawaiian Island Construction Work and Will Not Be Accepted. STATE DEPARTMENT HAS NOT YET BEEN APPRISED. Neither Will American Govern ment Heads Discuss Pres ent Negotiations Going on Between Countries. Washington, January 14 The War Department has not been informed as yet of the reported withholding of the contract for the construction of forti fications In Hawaii for the alleged rea son that the Jayaue.se were really the lowest bidders. Investigation here shows that only a limited amount of fortification work is now in progress there and the officials see no reason why any line should be drawn on ac count of the nationality of those who are to do this work, the. nature of which can not be conceuled so that they would hesitate before they re jected the lowest bid on that account. The principal work now on hand in Hawaii consists in the construction of two seta of mortar batteries for which Congress has specifically appro priated $300,000. One of these batter ies is at Diamond Head, the great promontory commanding the entrance to the harbor at Honolulu, and the other on the point at the entrance to Pearl harbor. In addition to these large works, there are some rifle gun replacements near quarantine and along the water front of Honolulu. Will Expend $1,100,000. This year's estimates contemplate the expenditure of $1,110,000 to per fect the fortifications of the Sandwich Islands, anil for that amount it is said an impregnable naval base will be es tablished on the Island of Oahu. The breakwater is undtr construction in Hilo buy, on the Island of Hawaii, but as this is not complete yet, Honolulu and Port Harbor are the only harbors which now could be used by naval vessels. With a full comprehension of the fact that the Japauese immigration question is being made an important issue in the political campaign now in progress in Japan and a consequent desire to avoid in any ay embarrass ing the Saitnaji ministry and perhaps causing its overthrow at the ap proaching election, the State Depart ment Is resolutely declining to pub lish any information respecting the progress of the negotiations with Japan on that subject.
