Eight hundred ' prisoners were
taken arid a number of machines
with a few trench mortars and
guns of larger caliber were taken.
Early yesterday morning the
drum fire of the British and
French big guns quickened notice
ably and soon became a barrage
that indicated yet another infan
try drive against the faltering
enemy. Behind a curtain of fire
and metal the Allied forces rush
ed forward taking a series of
trnrfipa at ttiA n.J n t nf tK Kar.
onet. Poelderhook Chateau was
taken and a number of concrete
shelters which the Tommies call
"pill boxes" were entered. The
advance was along a long front
but did not cut deeply into the
enemy country. It strengthened
the positions of the Allies and en
abled them to stabilize the posi
tions' previously taken besides
correspondingly weakening the
Huns' advance lines of defenses.
On the other hand Berlin
claims that the attacks of the Al
lies in the Ypres sector were re
pulsed with heavy losses and
denies officially any Allied advan
tages for the day.
This Paris denies and reports
that the French forces continued
their drives successfully and that
surprise attacks which the Teu
tons launched in th: Champagne
sector were bloodily repulsed by
the staunch stand of the roil us.
Success of British air raids on
Wednesday is also reported from
London. The British aviators in
their big war planes sailed far
beyond the Teuton fronts and at
Renisch, Prussia, practically de
molished the Burbach munition
works. Six tons of bombs were
dropped in this raid and photo
graphs taken from, the aircraft
show that the explosions shatter

well as wrcckinc four airdomes.

WASHINGTON, October 27 (Asso

in subscription for the Liberty Ioan
wa exported last night to be the total
which will be reached this morning.
Kleventh hour returns-will then com in
and the tabulating force will be further
increased to segregate and lift the ap

by telegraph from tbe early morning
hours on to noon and afterward. It
may be several day before the final
total of subscriptions can be given out
with any degree of definiteneB but it
is now considered a, practically cer

dollar will be exceeded.
Secretary MeAdon, looking worn but
pleased, aald last night: "Let every
American patriot subscribe and place
his name On the roll of honor. To do
this he will have to hurry. This morn
ing is his last opportunity.
"The closing hours of this the sec

of the first loan. This time there is
no doubt of the success of the loan, no
doubt of the tremendous oversubscrip

it is confidently believed finally run
to sixty-six percent or more above the

Attitude of the Allies Will Force
Desired Action
COPENHAGEN, October 27 (Asso
ciated Press) Daily newpapers last
evening published article which anti
cipated the early prohibition by Den
mark of all export. This prohibition
will be made to meet the demand of
Great Britain which have been hr.cked
up by the United Btatea and France.
Later it is expected that the prohibition
will be so modified as to include only
the Central Powers but at first it will
be sweeping and will include even
Great Britain.
Checking of Imports for Denmark by
Great Britain and France and even
more especially by the United States
bring such pressure to bear 1 that it
cannot well be withstood. Great Britain
demanded as a proof of good faith,
before further imports to Denmark be
permitted to leave her ports, that all
exports shall be prohibited by Den
mark. It is understood, however, that
when such good faith has been shown
there will be modifications permitted.
WASHINGTON, October 28 (Asso

shows that many coal men have been
charging higher prices than that al
lowed by the administration, and crim
inal proceeding may be instituted to
bring the dculers to time.

strong man of the new republic. Lend
ers nf the Soldiers' (and- Workmen's
Council are threatening to side actively
with the radicals and against the gov
ernment as now eonstitnted.
The most interesting development in
the political situation here yesterday
came in the form 'of announcement
by Trotoxkjr, one of the leader of the
Holdiers' and Workmen' Council that
he had determined, to taken an offen
sive attitude against the government
with the purpose of placing the actual
government of the country in the band
of the council, to make it a thorough

TOKIO, October 26 (Special to Nip-
pu Jiji) It is aa unprofitable business
for Japan to exchange 1 her shipping
with the iron from the United States.
Buch is the growing conviction which
now appears aa dominating the thought
of the Japanese government aa well as
the shipping and shipbuilding circles.
When Viscount K. Ishii. head of the
Japanese war commission to the United
States, prolonged his stay in Washing
ton, it waa learned that' he was dead
locked over the negotiations with the
proper American authorities on the
steel embargo question. Japan wanted
tbe embargo on the steel to be lifted
in favor of Japan to enable the Jap
anese ship yards to continue operation
while the United States government
asked for Japanese steamers to be used
a carry! as; the American troop and
supplies in the Atlantic. The United
States, it waa learned from an authen
tic Japanese source, is ready to grant
.japan import or iou,uuu tons oi tne
American steel provided Japan supplies
the Allies with her shipping over 400,
(K)0 tons. It is on this suggestion of
compromise that Japan's public opin
ion is now growing in disfavor, main
taining that Japan will lose much more
with her shipping than she can gain
from the American steel.

Agreement Is Reached Between
Commission and Refiners For
' ftqual Distribution m
NEW YORK, October 26 (Associat
ed Press) A tentative agreement bms
been reached by tha committee of Am
ericas sugar refiners which bids fair,
la their estimation, to solve the acute
sugar situation in the Eastern States.
Announcement was made today on
behalf of the refiners of an agreement,
subject to approval by tbe internation
al sugar committee now being organ
ized, whereby all raw sugar will be ap
portioned among the different refine
ries ia the country, with tbe result,
tbe committee states, that many idle
refineries would be opened up and the
output speeded up very considerably.
Food eontrol authorities and dealers
in Haa Franeiseo have put a ban on
sugar for . Christmas tree ornaments.
Tha Ioada of cheap candies which for
generations have been going into
Christmas tree ornaments are to be
frowned on this holiday season because
of tbe vital need of sugar by the Allies.
Manufacturers say 'that every effort
will be made to conserve sugar.
Further cuts in the price of refined
sugar for tbe retailers were aonouneed
yesterdsy afternoon by the state food
eontrol commission. It haa been deter
mined to set tbe retail- price at nine
cents and to have it maintained at that
figure, a cut of six cent from the high
price which aome retailers undertook
to exact early this week.
The new price regulation will be ef
fective on -Tuesday morning.

Investigations on the leaf hopper
which should prove of the deepest iur
terest to the sugar industry are now in
progress on Hawaii. Thus far no an
nouncement of the results that have'
been determined has been made ' and
what has been told is of such nature
that it requires much technical know
ledge of tbe subject of pests snd para
sites to grasp what ia being done.
Prevalence, of the leaf hopper on
Olaa aud other Hawaii plantations in
this year's and next year's Crops is
blamed upon some hesvy downpours of
rain that occurred when tbe crops were
very young. On Olaa, it is said, there
was one such downpour of fully nine
inches and another plantation had a
rainfall of a foot. It is explained
that such heavy downpour washed
away the parasite and' left but few to
contend with the spread of the hopper
ft question is now asked, if there
should bo a similar heavy rain after
the dry spell of tbia year would it not
tend to wash away many of tbe hop
pers, just as the heavy rains mentioned
were destructive to the parasites '
The leaf hopper promises to be prev
alent on Hawaii this year and next
and possibly in 1919. Already it It
certain that some plantations will fecj
serious loss from them in addition tq
the big drought losses. It 1 to com

Inter lsland .Company Appeals;
' From. Utilities' Commission's

Appeal from' the utilities board's or

ule to the prices in Vogue in IBID has
been takea by the company te tha ter
ritorial supremo eourt and, a- brief was
filed yesterday, This action is one en
tirely separate and.' apart; from the
proceedings' which' are peadisg-in the

though it may have the effect of stay
ing the temporary injunction Issued. -by

fore Judge Ashford. were entirely sup
plementary to the action of the com
mission la ordering m restorktitp of old

The ' appeal from the order of the
utilities board which haa been taken
by the Inter Islar.d company is intend
ed to secure a review . of the whole
proceedings of the commission but at
the same time brings' tfp the' question
of the jurisdiction--ef that' body and

only' cm ' thief olnt that there is any
similarity between this proceeding and
the one brought by the navigation com
pany in the federal eourt. , There need
now be no conflict aa to jurisdiction
between the two courts - and the' two
proceedings may go U separately.1 '
Among tthe -poiats presented in the
brief are the following:
"The public utilities commission has
no jurisdiction to fix tates and classi
fication , tot tha Inter-Wand ' Steam

amendment of, its tariff.
"Congress having legislated and
placed tbe Iuter-Ialaad Steam Naviga

of tne shipping board, that control is
exclusive. . '
"No hearing was had; as provided In

of the Vrdted State requires such no
tice and hearing before thtf, commission

"The order of the commission is
not sustained by the facts found in

Late Estimates Reduce Figures
"" ' Td UnderThreeWundrW ; '
Thousand Tons '7
NEW ORIGANS, -October 13 E. A,
Rainold, Wh ia an authority on the
Louisiana' Sugar1 crop, says that the
crop will be disappointment, and that
although there bave'besa. estimates
made heretofore of a 300.000 or 325,000-
ton crop; the recent very' unfavorable
growing weather will more than offset
the greater acreage in cane upon which
the big crop estimates were based; On
the majority of the plantations he say
tbe cane is small and the crop- about
thirty days late. He says that it ia too
latC for the cane to grow' -or catch up
before grinding begins. The planters
are hoping now that tbeir ehanees for
more cane growth ' have passed away,
that the eool weather will result ' is
more sugar in the cane, and the opti
mistic belief is that the eane this year,
barring an unforeseen freeze,' will be
very heavy in sucrose. Mr. Rainold be
lieves that all things considered the
crop will reach In the neighborhood of
275,000 tons. He cites as evidences of
the lateness of the season the facts that
hurt' season the first syrup had arrived
on the New Orleans Sugar Exchange oa
September 6, and that' now over a
kaonth later no syrup has yet arrived
or. Been made. He says that tha first
receipts of sugar -arrived last season on
October 13, and 'While ho believea It
possible that some few small .' houses
will start grinding on ths 16th of this
month, they will be mighty few, ftd
moat of them will begin operations not
sooner than the 22ivd, of the month, and
more likely aoti sooner than the 21 h

presses the belief that there will be con
