years ago, in tho campaign

a rcgimentul commander, lost Ins regi

no awaited n suitable opportunity to
ho in expiation of that affair, during
which period ho roso to tbo highest
rank attainable in military circles in
lanan, becamo tbo successful and world-
praised hero of a great war, was honor

by his Emperor and became tho national
lot, yet iio never forgot the loss of
the standard or believed that anything
ho had done bad wiped that stain from
bis record. When, therefore tho first
jim sounded to announce the commencement
of the last rites over the body ol

carried nt tho fall of Tort Arthur. A

Count, dressed in full general's uniform,
and tho Countess putting on ucliigi, had
their pictures taken by n photographer
in tbo garden at eight o'clock in tho
morning. After that they tlrovo to the
imperial palace in tho same enrringc, to
pay their respects to tho romnins of tho
late Kmporor. They returned home to
ward evening nnd entered tho reading
roUin upstairs, tolling tlio servants not
to como to disturb them. But ns tbe
scrvnnts understood that tho Count was
tho chief entertainer of If. II. Prineo
Arthur of Connnught, British special
envoy, and was to attend tho grand imperial
funeral, they wero anxious, or
even impatient to tell tlio general that
the important hour was approaching.
At tho sound of tho first signal gtin
one of tlio maid-servants knocked at tho "
door of tho room in which wore tho
count and countess who had locked the
door from within.
There was no response. Tho anxious
maid called for others to open tho door,
and alas, General Count Nogl nnd his

News Shocked tho Nation.
The news of their suicldo shocked tho
people, who wero bent upon observing
tho obsequies of tho Into Kmporor.
Many officers nnd dignitaries hoard tho
heartrending news at Aoyama when tho
funeral ceremony was nbout to closo
and n great number of them visited tho
residence of tho count on their way
homo in the early morning, and tho sail
incident cast a gloom among his friends
and relatives, to add to tlio mourning
for the late Emperor.
General Count Xogi is said to have
left behind him several letters nil-dressed
to his friends and relatives.
Tlio deceased wrote in part that his
body should not bo touched by nny one
until llaron Tadnnori Tshiguro, ex-surgeon
general, examines it.
tlio baron was sent for. Ho carno
to tho place at 2:30 Saturday morning
and duly examined the bodies of the
deceased. Tho baron also road tho letter
addressed to him, but as ho had not
yet given out tho contents of tho let-ter,
nothing is yet known ns to what
was tho cause of tho tragedy. It is
genorally supposed, howover, that tho
Into general was as loyal to the
as ho was a gallant soldier; nnd
that ho could not bear tho grief of losing
tho lato Emperor, and followed his
master to the grave ou tho ove of his

at the siego of Fort Arthur), my respected
seniors nntl friends havo repeatedly
taken trouble to persuade 1110
to ndoiit a son. But it is a nrnctirn
the failings of which lmo formed 11
subject of discussion from of old nnd
Instances like that which bofell my
honored T.iiunki are not few. (Tho general
's brother who was adopted in
Tnniaki family, committed suicide.
which iti its turn led to that brother's
adoptive father's tnking bis own life.)
Especially 111 tho case of peers who arq
boing accorded gracious imperial treat"
lnent they should not net against tho
law of natural lineage, 60 that thero
may be no fear of the family namo be
ing stained, tliotigli tlicro may bo no
help to this where there is real offspring.
So long as there remains blood
relatives, these should look after tho.
grnves of their common ancestors
(therefore thero is no necessity of
adopting n stranger). It is my desiro
that my residence at Shinzaka be properly
disposed of by turning it over to
the ward or city as n gift with tho object
abovo stated being kept in view.
"3. As to tip; distribution of my
property, I havo drawn up a plan of
it in a separate paper. For other particulars
Shizuko (Countess Nogl) will
seek your ndvice.
"4. As to tho distribution of my
personal effects, I havo left a word of
request to Colonel Tsukada that ho
may uso his discretion in giving my
watch, Hold-glass,
sWords, and other articles of soldier's
uso to my adjutants. Tho colonel
did a great deal for mo during the
lato twd wars. Ho may consult Shizuko
for what she knows. For othors, he
may uso his own discretion.
"5. Tho imperial gifts (from imperial
princes) bejiring the imperial
crest should be given to the Kukusbuin
(peer's school), a word of request being
left in this connection to Mr.
(tlio manager of tho school) and
Major Itnni.
' ' 0. All books that may bo of uso to
the Oakushuin should be given as far
as possiljlo to that institution. Others
may bo similarly dealt with in favor of
tho Chofu Library, tho rest being disposed
of as may be thought fit.
"7. Fapors left by my fathor,
grandfathor, and
form so to speak a history of tho Nogi
family, and they should bo scrupulously
collected and preserved by definitely
placing them in tho caro of tho houso
of Marquis Sasaki, or of tho Sasaki
Shrine, after throwing away unimportant
"S. The articles exhibited nt the
Yttiukan (wnr museum at luidanl shall
bo donated to tlint institution. This
tho best way to preserve them
in memory of the houso of Nogi.
"0. Shizuko is becoming aged, and
it is not without reason that she says
sho should feel helpless nt tho time of
illness, etc., to Hvo at Isbibnynshi,
which is a very inconvenient place. My
cstato nt Ishibayashi should bo given
over therefore to Shusaku (tho gen
oral's brother), and I havo consontcd
that Shizuko should like at my residence
in Nnkano. -Vs to the disposal
of tlio cstato at Nakano it may bo left
to Shizuko.
"10. I have left a word of request
to Baron Ishigtiro as to tho treatment
of my body, which may bo donated to
a medical school. In my gravo it will
bo sufficient (Shizuko consents to this)
to place my hair, nails and teeth.
"Tho gold watch of which I have
loft n noto: 'tho imperial gift to b
shared,' should go to Musayuki Tamaki
(the general's nephew).) Ho shall not
uso it except when in soldier's uniform.
"The houso of Count Nogi shall remain

is most important that the object of

how General Nogi died nnd which died
first, ho or his wife. Tho customary
way to commit seppuku, ru performed
by the Irusbi, U to cut the abdomen
just deep enough to bleed, and tnen
give a fatal thrust through the throat,
bceanse the cnttlng of the abdomen
is not sufficient to put an end to life.
General Nogiperformcd seppuku after
this customary fashion, It appears
that, having cut tho abdomen, he readjusted
his clothes, nnd then thrust
the sword In tho right Bide of the neck,
' forcing it through to tho reft posterior
part. This forceful thrust muit hnvo
put an end to his lifo immediately, as
it completely cut tho arteries.
"At first we surmised that the General
killed himself after assuring
of the death of his wife. But that
that was not the case is ovident in his
letter addressed to me, in which he
his wifo Is perfectly willing to
follow him 1o death. Judging from
tho character of Countess Nogi, It seems
that when he told her of his intention,
sho must havo tried to dissuade him
from tho deed, but finding his Tcsolu
tion too firm sho decided to follow her
Countcra Nogt'o Heroic Death.
C6untcB9 Nogl was dressed in mourning,
with n dull-colored gown nnd a
haknnia of light orango shade. The
weapon sho used was n dagger about a
foot long. Sho inflicted four wounds
upon herself. One wound was in her
hand, Tirst sho appears to hnyo thrust
the dagger into the middle' of her
breast, nnd then into her right side
tlic ribs; this thrust was nbout
rn inch and a half deep. Perhaps still
fearing that tlint would not bo fatal,
the must hnvc given herself the third
and Jnst thrust, which. wont through
tho heart Hy tho timo sho gave herself
tins last thrust she had been
wenkened by the first two
wounds. Not hnving enough strength
to drive tho weapon into her breast,
sho foil prcstrate upon it, thus pushing
it almost tip to tbo hilt.
"Personally, I havo seen not a few
enscs of seppuku, and know Hint in
performing tho act, if ono fnils to kill
liitrself by the first thrust, ho is not
nblo to put sufficient strength into the
second thrust to put nn end to his life.
Howover, Countess Nogi, woman as sho
wns, gavo herself three powerful thrusts

Did the General Write tho Emperor?
Count Wntanabe, minister of tho irci'
perinl household, in a press interview
given yesterday morning, said as follows
in regard to tho letter General
Count Nogi had written him just before
his death :
"Tho letter was annarentlv written
after he pnid the last respect and bade
farewell to tho remains of the Emperor
Mutsuhito. Though wo had always
associated on the closest terms,
General Nogi niado not n single reference
to private matters in tho letter.
Tho gist of his letter is that ho requested
me, who havo tho management
of tho imperial household in charge,
to sco to tilings of state in general, so
that tho welfare of the court nnd tho
country may. continue, to be nfter bis
death as satisfactory as it has been.
General Nogi's letter is replete with
patriotic and noblo words of his true
heart, nnd I hope to publish it for the
benefit of the public nt somo befitting
"It is rumored, I understand, that
General Nogl sent a letter to tho Em
peror beforo his death; but judging
from tho letter thnt ho has written
me, that seems quite improbable. The
strong renson that moves mo to make
this statement is that, though General
Nogi has freely expressed his sentiments
in varied matters in the letter,
he has not mndo the least reference
to tho throno or our imperial household."
Mindful of His Duties.
The letter that Genernl Count Nogi
wrote before his suicide to

Governor Makes Proposal to
the Plantation to Let
Hilo Grow.
As the result of negotiations between
Governor Frcar and the Waiakoa plantation,
tho Wninkoa makai lands will

tho end in view ot making mutually
satisfactory arrangements. According
10 1110 uoveruor, hu will probably
nn answer by Saturday at tbo
latest, and he
expresses himself as confident
that the plantation will enter
into tho spirit ot. the agreement and
turn over its makai land to tho Territory.
Discussion of tho project lias been
going on for somo time, but nothing
dcfinito had, been dono nbout it until
Governor Frc.ir wrote tho letter, now
on the way to the agents, which will
probably complote tho ' arrangement
In the past tboro havo been many inquiries
mndo in regard to tho opening
i 4hV larU for se'cment, as tho city
of 3IiIo is restricted in regard to building
lots, and business men of tho city
hope, that tho opening of tlio Waiakoa
lauds will relieve this land striugoncy.
According to tlio Hawaii Herald of
October 4, F. M. Swanzy, managing
tlircrtor of Tlieo. Davies & Co., agents
for Uniakea plant ttion, asserts that no
one who has over desired land ou tho
plantation has been refuted, and It is
the desiro of the lnniiagpiuciit to soo
ns many happy and contented families
on its land as possible.
At the time thnt tho interview was
pul hslicd in tho Hawaii paper, Governor
Frear hud not written his letter
to Hnwes & Co., and Mr. Swanzy is

"The people of Hilo need tho land for

and develop. At present tho city
is restricted for lots for residenco purposes,
nnd it is by opening tho
