The soldier has little or no choice In
clothing, and the conditions of cam
paigning are such Hint soldiers are
seldom ideally dressed. The changes
of temperature tlinf Western Europe
can experience in IS hours completely
baffle anyone who possesses a restrict
ed wardrobe and who is obliged to
live in the open. Yet the soldier in
France must be prepared for anything
in the line of weather.
In the British nrmy, the seasons are

than by any slavish adherence to Cli
mate. The first signs of Hiiriug are
ermy orders commanding that all
"special heavy" winter clothing, such
as trench coats, furs and sweaters, shall
be banded in by April 1. Anil handed

the weather fotrhwith turns wintry

zard and sharp frost.

gloves ami mittens, lenther coats nil
inexorably return to the ordnance de
partment. Paring the summer this
clothing is cleaned, repaired, sterilized
and repacked in bales ready for the
succeeding autumn and winter issue.
The clothes collected are replaced by
issues of lighter stuff, more suitable
for warm weather wear, for lu the
summer, fighting is hot work, and
gunners prefer to oserve their guns in
knee-length nnderd rawer and a shirt.
Iiuriyg some battles in the hottest days
the men hove stripped even farther
than this, ami worked bare to the
waist, as their grandfathers served the
guns in Nelson's day.
Wool mid flannel seem heavy for
summer wear, but the British army is old
in experience nnd knows the best all
round materials. Cotton, though ex
cedent for comfort, is an Id" to swell
the sick lists rapidly, for whem soaked
through with perspiration it dries in
sinh a way as to chill the wearer,
while the heavier wool, though less
plvasnut to wear, dries wihtout HI ef
fect. The same standard outer uniform
serves the British soldier fur all sea
sons in France. One article that is
the same for British soldiers in all
parts of the world and in nil climates
is the regulation grey army sock. Kx
pcrience has proved to the satisfaction
, of the British authorities that this
standard sock is rhe'best for all condi
tions of inarching. It does not shrink
or get Inir I from repented washing,
and it is extraordinary durable.
British nrmy clothing may not be
handsome or even well cot, but it is
must carefully designed to furnish the
maximum of practical use combined
with the first hygienic iinlitiea. The
best testimony to its excellent quality
and design is the fait that the sol
dier himself ai knowledge.! that "ra
tion clothes" are the best that cun be
found for army wear.

ADMIRALTY SUIT IS
P'antation Men Admit Kauai De
mand For Nine Ton Purchase
Basis Is a Just One
Kauai homesteaders nre going to win
1 i:t iu their content on thru the basis
belwe. n small plnntci and plantation
mills for the purchases of cane on that
island should be nine tons of cane to
a ton of sugar it a pears as a result
of conferences which Klmer Cheatham
and Fiank Crawford, a special commit'
tec of the Kauai Chamber of Com
merce, are holding with tha adminis
tration officials and representatives of
the plantations interested.
In the agreement previously resetted
between administration officials and
the plantation representatives eight
tons of cane was flxc.l as the purchase
basis, but conditions on Kauai are sdeh
that this works to a marked disadvan
tage 01 tne small planters, it is as
serted. This objection, raised by the Kauai
homesteaders, is admittted as a just
one by some of the Kauai plantation
men, says Assistant Attorney General
Ilnrry Irwin, who is representing the
Governor at the conference, another of
which is to be held today.
The assistant attorney general says
he was told by Charles Kice, a director
of the Makee Sugar Company, but also
an individual planter, that he believed
the eight ton bnsis was unfair to the
small planter and that nine ton's was
the proper basis for the island of
Kice agreed that a five percent de
duction for trash was a fair one except
when the cane was burned. Rice told
the assistant attorney general he would
supply him with some specific figures
De has gathered regarding trash deduc
tions ami other enne statistics.
Another reason the assistant attorney
general is inclined to think the Kauai
homesteaders are right in their conten
tion that the cane should be bought on
a nine ton basis is that this la the
amount formerly specified in the Makee
J'lnntation Company contracts
Irwin Confident of Settlement
Attorney Irwin expressed eorfidenre
yesterday afternoon that a satisfactory
agreement was going to be reached by
the government between the Kauai
homestenders and the plantations. He
said there was no disposition on the
part of either the plantation represen
tatives or the planters to make de
mands that the others could not con
cede, and that probably both would
make some concussions.
In figures made public yesterday by
Klmer Cheatham he asserted that under
the terms of the present contract the
homesteader could clear annually only
nineteen dollars an acre, with a profit
of siity dollars for the plantation mill.
The assistant attorney general has re
quested the submission of other cost
estimates for the raising and milling
of a ton of sugar for use at the con
ferences, which will be compared with
those of Cheatham's.

Over Charges of
Will Hold Big Mass Meeting To
night To Voice Their Griev
ances Will Ask Child For
Strict Enforcement of Regula
tions A mass meeting of the Japanese of
this city, which promises to be a great
meeting as indicated by enthusiasm
among the local Japanese, will be held
tonight at seven o'clock at the Asahi
theater on Muunukea Street, for the
purposes of voicing the grievance of the
consumers of Japan rice against profit
eering by some of the importers of the
staple, and at the same time asking the
food administration for a strict enforce
ment of regulations relating to the sale
of rice. The meeting will be held under
the auspices of the Japanese Assoeia
lion of Hawaii.
This mass meeting is an outcome of
a discovery by Food Administrator
t'hild of profiteering by some of the
prominent local Japanese firms, which,
it is alleged, are using false invoice
methods to accomplish their purKse.
The Japanese of the eity are consider
ably aroused over the discovery and
the Japanese papers are all making so
vere criticism of those -who are respon
sible. The meeting tonight will be presided
over by K. lshida, secretary of the Jap

speakers will address the meeting. Some

Embargo On Export Extended By
Nippon Government and No
More May Be Shipped
The embargo nn rice from Japan,
which was put into effect Tuesday by
the Japanese government snd which
made the departure from Kobe of a
special steamer with a large consign
ment of Japan rice for the local Jap
anese merchants an impossibility, Will
also be applied to the regular boats on
the Orient Hawaii San Francisco run.
This means that rice from Japan
consigned for Hawaii will come no
more, until the time the embargo be
lifted by the Japanese government,
which may be in all probability after
November' when the ne,w rice crop is
harvested in Japan.
The above information vital to the
local Japanese wtas Contained in a
cablegram received here yesterday
from Japan by a Jnpsnese importer
of rice. The message said:
"Hue situation still grsve. Vessel
unable to take rice because of em
bargo. ' '
The general belief of the Honolulu
Japanese merchants was that the em
bargo as announced by the Japaneoe
department of commerce, through Min
ister It. Nnkashojl, was spplicable only
to special steamers and not to the
tegular boats. The Japanese govern
ment put the bsn on rice export from
Japan nn the ground that the short
age of rice supplies at hand must be
relieved before any exportation of the
staple to foreign countries will be per
mitted. As far as the rice export of
Japan it concerned, Hawaii is the only
foreign eoontry which the export of
the staple was granted heretofore by
the Japanese government.
With definite word from Japan that
the ban of rice export to Hawaii is
to be applied to the regular boats, the
local Japanese are apparently worried.
The supply at hand Is not sufficient
to last any longer than a month and
in case the embargo be not lifted un
til the harvest of the new crop in
November, Hawaii will have a famine
of Japan rice, which will prove to be
a most serious problem to the 110,000
Japanese in the Territory.
Aa idea that the rice situation in
Japan is strlt grave is clearly gained
by the fact that the riots are still in
progress in my parts of the Kmpire.
A special cable from Tokio to the
Hawaii Shinpo reported that distur
bancea occurred yesterday at twenty
seven large cities throughout Japan
and in the most of cases, troops were
called out to quell thi rioting. In
Yamaguchl prefecture where the riot
was violent several thousand coal
miners have started a reign of terror.
Tht police with aid of the soldiers are
reported to have arrested 1600 rioters.
