terday to the banks' correspond

or ommission to file complete re
ports as called for by the Comp
troller of the 'IVmsury.

banks in the Territory of Hawaii
have made proper respqnse to his
requests for a report," and that

have been either the regular perio
dical ones or have been incom
plete." Mr. Cooke of the Rank of Hawaii

were mentioned in the cablegram,
the reports may have miscarried or
been lost in the mails, but Mr.

that his two banks fowarded the
necessary reports. Advertiser.

ine moment 01 parting was revealed a
glimpse of the hopes which buoyed
them and of the perils which lie thick
around them. As nearest and dearest

kin to Dr. Sun, the whole power of the
Empire of China is watching and waiting
for an opportunity to seize these helpless
women and to inflict on them severe aiid
capital punishment such as are warranted
by the customs of that empire.
From a half suppressed expression of
grief made by a sorrowing kinsman, n-
bout the old lady wanting to make trou

to take back ' her daughter-in-law with
her and to brave the unknown perils for
the sake of seeing her own native laud
Mrs. Ahmi carried herself as simply as
any matron of her age., Her feet were
as small as the fashions and customs of
China require of ladies 'of breeding.
From her bearing no one would suspect
her to be the mother of a world celebrate.
Mrs. Dr. Sun made herself inconspicu
ous and our news gatherer was unable to
guess which of the several younger wo
men was the wife of the noted Chinese
political leader and revolutionist.
