The papers say It will be settled soon, but it will take three or four months then to get every one unloaded and back to moving again. "Mr. Dice is a contractor, but he can't figure on any more building as long as the lumber is tied up. It Is just off shore, but plcketeers see that It Isn't unloaded.
