Fought Well but Failed and Died '
for Honor. ,
Wo have not (so said the Shang
hai Mercury at the beginning of tho i
week) roceireu any nows stating tuat
Admiral Ting's proposal of surren
der has boen accepted, but we may
safely believe that such is tho case,
Aumirni ring ana tlie uouoral in
chargo of tho troops having com
mitted suicide. Wo have no doubt
that Japan will savo tho lives of
both Chinese and foreigners who
wore fighting at Liukungtao. But
there is ono foreigner thero that
Japan will not, wo fool certain, doal
so leniently with, that is Mr. Howie, '
an American, who was arrested at
Kobe on board tho Sydney, and gave
his word of honor that ho would not
assist tho Chiuoso in tho prosont
war. Ho brolto his word, and not
only went to China but joined that '
country to fight against JnpaDj '
therefore wo cannot blame Japan if
she is not lenient with such a man. '
Tho suicido of Admiral Ting can
not fail to Imj regarded with eincoro
i regret by all Europeans, as well as
natives, in China. Whatever may
be thought of Ting's scientific quali
fications for the high post ho occu
piudj thero is no secoud opinion as
to his honesty of purpofo. Ho was
ouo of the very few Chiuuso officials
who have placed patriotism in tho
first rank and private emoluments
as a merely secondary coucorn. His
last act of surrendering tho Island of
I Liukungtao, after his ammunition
i had been exhausted, and stipulating
for tho lives of those- under his com
mand, is in worthy contrast to that
of the Other commanders of the
Chineto forces, who cared not for
what happoued to others provided
, their own miserable lives wero fnlo.
Ting has shown mo want of personal
bravery either in tho battle of tho
Yalu or in his defcuco of Liukiu.g
tao. Ho lia douo his duty to an
ungrateful couutry, and his last act
of self-immolation to preserve tho
j safety and honor of his family must,
however different bo our codes of
I honor, be looked upon as worthy
; of the life ho had led. Had China
only a few more men of tho calibre
J of Admiral Ting she need not bavo
bitten tho dust in her contest with
Japan The Calcrtfal Empire.

Mr. John A. Scott, Mutineer of the Hilo Sugar Company, gives tho follow
ing wonderful record of tho working of tho NATIONAL CANE SHHED
DEH, which was eiccloil by their work ut tho commencement of tho crop
"During tho pnst week tho Hilo Sugar Company's mill exceeded any of
its form or records by closing the 125 hours grinding with an output of 300
tons. This is fully 10 percent more thnn the best work of former years.
"Tho three roller mill being 20 in. by CI in. ami tho two roller mill BO in.
by GO in. '1 he first mill doing this amount of work in an efficient manner
and with great ouso, compared with work on wholo cano, owing to thorough
preparation of tho cano by the National Cano Shredder, recently erected by
"And by its umj tho extraction lias been increased from 3 porccnt to 6 per
cent on all kinds of cane, and in some ent-OH SO percent has been reached;
tho average being 75 to 78 percent, according to quality.
" I continue lo find tho megans from shredded cano hotter fuel than from
"Tho shredder bus been working day .tint night for seven months and has
given me entire Kutisfneliun, having shrcdihd during that time about soventy
thousand tons of cane, and a large part of it being hard ratoons.
"The shredder and engine require very litllo care or attention."
