As re gards the motion to dissolve the tem porary injunction, the utilities commis sion has filed in federal court a mo tion to remand the matter back to cir cnit court. Further argument on the motion was to be had this morning, but owing to the Illness of Attorney II. W. r.reckons, was continued until next Monday mcralng. The following points are made by the Inter-Island In 1U-"cM in the ourt: C- , "The public utilities cowJhnHias no. Jurisdiction to fix rat?

The purchase of a'hundred thousanl tons or Louisiana sugar by the Ameri can Sugar Refining company whien was reported cn Wednesday removed at once more than a third of the prob able crop of that state which is below the normal and estimated at not to ex ceed 275,000. tons. Cuba's remaining supply is variously estimated at from 2.",00( to 75.000 tons and Louisiana and Cuba cannot be counted upon to go far toward relieving the shortage without the beet sugar output which will be above early expectations. Cuba's next crop will come in toward irect the the end of the beet sugar production. By then it is expected that the situa tion will have been measurably reliev ed but meantime conservation is to be the watchword. SAN FRANCISCO. Cal..

Art Smith tiie oung American aviator noted for his raiuous ' looping-the-Ioops," yes terday bade Japan goodby and sailed from Yokohama for home. He and Mrs. Smith, his mother, with whom he was visiting Japan, were among the passengers on a T. K K. liner bound for Honolulu and San Fran chisee. Smith declared that he U deter mined to sere his country on his return to the United States. It is generally believed here that he will volunteer his services as an army aviator with the American troops in France. Art Smith, who is now on his way home from a second visit to Japan, was to stay in Honolulu to give a series of his famous flights, but it seems now improbable as he is hasten ing back to the states to volunteer. Smith was received most enthusi astically wherever he has made his flight and became an Idol of the Jap anese people. When he was injured in a bad fall in Sapporo on his first visit to Japan, he received from many Japanese letters of 'sympathy, some of which were written with Wood from fingers cut for the itrpose. He was moved so deeply that, after he had entirely recovered In a Chicago hos pital, he made the second visit to Japan. Smith and his mother are expected to pass through Honolulu early next month. Japan's Opinion Growing Against Ship-steel Deal (S?Sa Cii X ',-D Jin) TOKIO, Japan. Oct. 26. - It is an un profitable butines for Japan to ex change her shiuuing with tLe iron from the United State?. Such is the - growing conviction which now appears as dominating the thought of the- Japanese government as well as the shipping and shipbuili ing circles. When Viscount K. Ishii. head of the Japanese war commission to the United States, prolonged his stay in Washington, it-. was learned that he was deadlocked over the negotiations wrtk the proper American authorities on is steel embargo question. Japan wanted the embargo on the steel to be lifted in favor of Japan to enable the Japanese ship yards to continue operation while the United States gov ernment asked for Japanese steamers to be used in carrying the American troops and supplies in the Atlantic. The .United State?, it was learned from an authentic! Japanese source, is ready to srapt Japan imports of 1 ."), 000 tons of - the American steel pro vided Japan supplies the Allies with her shippingver 400,00') tons. It is on this suggestion of compromise that Japan's public opinion is now growing in disfavor, maintaining that Japan will lose much more .with her shipping than she can gain from -the American steel.

"There is- no romance Hit. in war, it Is a' dirty busr ness, and every one of us who Is.iii it Is determined that when we finish this war, It shall be so thoroughlj finished that nobody will ever start another.'' Thus writes, a British transport captain in a letter to his local news paper, describing how he had just lost twenty of his men, although they were nearly a dozen miles behind the front, through a shell from a German long range naval gun fifteen miles away. The shell was a chance shot. Here is the captain's story: "We have descended on a war of stlnk-pot3, of spectacled chemists leer ing horribly in obscure laboritories while they concoct the tortures of the damned, of medieval poisons, of flying death from the -clouds. - It Is less like war than some elemental devilishness which man Is tas powerless to contro 1 '. . 4 r as he was. the volcanoes wmcu over whelmed Pompeii or St..

A rocking crash, and up from the road leaped a volcano of black earth and smoke and stones. The whole air filled itself with shrieking bits of metal, whirling swathes of dust and ehoking fumes. Horses were plunging, men cursing. Above'all rang the screams ofmortal agony.

Baron Shimpel Goto, Japan's home minister, has characterized the United States' "ban on exportation of. iron and steel as en tirely necessitated by the war and as declaring that.it is unreasonable for Japan to expect ?n absolute cancella tion cr removal of the embargo. The only way .for Japan to approach the question, he said, was to request some exceptional treatment affording Japan a smooth operation of the shipbuilding' Industry. He believed the steel ques tion would be settled " satisfactorily. Baron' Goto added: "Recently the movement of the Ja panese business bodies opposing the American embargo on iron and steel is becoming stronger and some agita tors at times Indulge m utterances which are by no means pleasing to America to hear. Such an attitude on the part of our countrymen cannot be recommended. They should observe an attitude of calm circumspection seeking the solution of the problem by moderate and conciliatory means.
