btates have reached a complete agreement .in.TdgaricLm
and a clearunideretanding upon luUita
cooperation i against Germany. vj r ' --vy ,v
This important announcement . was made today by Sec
retary of State' Lansing. 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,
"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

California and Hawaiian Sugar Refin- VALUED AT $243,535
An inventory of the estate of the
late Cecil Brown, filed in circuit court
today, shows it to e worth $243,
535.24. Stocks are valued at $154,-

ing Co., at the Instance of the national
food administration, were received in
yesterday's mail by A. M. Nowell, sec
retary of the Sugar Factors.
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
