At, , the same time he made pnblie notes exchanged with Mscoulit Ishii, bead of the great Japan ese mission which came to the United States some weeks ago. These notes record an agreement recognizing Japan's special interest in China, and pledging the independence and the territorial integrity of that young republic. The notes also reaffirm the doctrine of the "open door" in China for American commerce and industry. Secretary Lansing's statement emphasizes the point that the Ishii mis sion has performed a service of the highest value to he United States. and Japan in clearing up misunderstandings, -which, if unchecked, promised to develop a serious situation in the Far East. . y The statement also refers to the atf titude of constraint and doubt in the two countries fostered by a campaign of falsehood adroitly and secretly car ried on by the Germans. It declares that through the frankness and cordi ality of the Japanese commissioners this propaganda of years has been un done in a few days. - . .The text of the statement, which is dated October 2 and ' addressed by Secretary Lansing to Viscount Ishii, says: "I have the honor to communicate my understandings of an agreement developing from our recent conversa tions and questions of Interest to the governments relating to China. "In order to silence mischievous re ports, 1 believe that a public an nouncement of the desires and inten ( tions shared by the two governments r in regard to China Is advisable. "The governments , of the United States and Japan recognize that ter ritorial propinquity creates special re lations between countries, consequent ly the United States recogntees that Japan has special interests in China, particularly that part to which her possessions are contiguous. (Note. This appears to refer to Manchuria.) H "The territorial- sovereignty ot China remains unimpaired and ; the United States has every confidence in the assurance that Japan' does not de sire to discriminate against the trade of her nations or disregard the treaty rights heretofore granted by China to other powers. The, govern ments deny any purpose to 'infringe upon the independence and territorial Integrity of China, and declare that they will always adhere to the prin ciple of the 'Open Door and equal op portunity for commerce and industrj In China; and that they are mutually opposed to the acquisition by any gov ernment of any special rights or privileges affecting the Independence of the territory; or will deny to the citizens of any country full enjoyment of equal, opportunity for commerce and industry in China. . - "I shll be glad to have -Your Ex cellency confirm this understanding and agreement." - In reply to this, Viscount; Ishii ad dressed Secretary Lansing on Novem ber 2 also, as follows: T have the honor to acknowledge, and am happy to confirm imder the authorization of my government, the understanding In the following terms At this point the Ishii statement re- (ABsncl&tftd Press V.

It is specifically stated in these reg ulations ' that, confectioners are to be supplied with but 50 per cent of their normal demand, and if the rule is vio lated by the Jobbers their supply will be cut off. Retailers are required to watch carefully the purchase of cane sugar by their regular customers or others to prevent consumers getting a big-supply in stock. Percy Swift, manager of Henry May & Co.. thinks the Regulation regarding the supplying of confectioners will not apply here, as only a limited amount of sugar is. used by Honolulu candy makers. He does not look for a cut ting off of the Importation of the fancy sugars, cube, bar! and powder sugar either, but believes the regulation is di rected against the big candy manufac turing companies of the mainland, be cause of the requirement, of the food administration that candy production and candy consumption must ; be cut down in order to conserve the world's supply of sugar. . - Others point out that because 1 Ha waii is a sugar ; producing ' country there, is no danger of hoarding sugar here. As Mr. Nowell says, nearly all j iae augar proauQea on any 01 tne Ha waii , plantations Is good enough for table consumption, and where It Is not one more .washing will make it so.; It Is also a matter of -fact that for many years most all plantation employes use LAST GEIER OFFICER TO LEAVE FOR UTAH Lieutenant Otto Portwich, an offi cer of the former German gunboat Geier, who was detained in the Is lands at the time therest of the pris oners from that vessel were sent to the mainland will leave on the trans port now at Honolulu.
