**Review: ** Let us denote by \Omega the set of all brownian plane paths z(t,\omega) = (z(t,\omega),y(t,\omega)) where \omega is a random point and 0 < t < oo. One of the two authors (*S.J.Taylor*, Zbl 050.05803) constructed a probabilistical device **{**\Omega F,\mu**}** for the space of Brownian motion.

*Paul Lévy* has proved (Zbl 024.13906) that the Lebesgue plane measure of the set L(0, oo; \omega) [where L(a,b; \omega) = **{**z(t,\omega) | 0 \leq a < t < l \leq oo**}**] is -- with probability one -- equal to null. In the present paper the authors prove Lévy's conjecture i. e. that, in contrast to the occurrences in the multidimensional case, the measure of the set L(0,1; \omega) in the twodimensional space is finite, with respect to function -x^{2} log x. The method employed in the demonstration uses the connexion between the Hausdorff-measure and the generalized capacity, that was pointed out by *S.Kametani* [Jap. J. Math. 19, 217-257 (1946; Zbl 061.22704)].
