and supreme court, on appeal from a

tion to remand the matter back to cir

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

"Congress having legislated and

gation Co.'s commerce, under the con
trol of the shipping board, that con
trol 'ji exclusive. '
"No hearing was had as provided in
section 2234, and no notice of such
hearing given to the Inter-Island
Steam Navigation Co., and the const!
determined at the outset that pianslo:
economizing and conserving the coun
try's supply must be taken at once.
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.

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 ."),

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

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

line. It It as well you should hear of
it who have a quiet roof over your

I was at a cross roads, and a vast
amount of traffic was moving by It,

"Now; the whistle changed to a sudden

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.

TOKIO, Japan. Baron Shimpel
Goto, Japan's home minister, has
characterized the United States' "ban

declaring that.it is unreasonable for
Japan to expect ?n absolute cancella

only way .for Japan to approach the

exceptional treatment affording Japan
