ehisoa aoidi - .
Jdtt Old SMppr rrind
I bad been at Iquiqae only a few
daya when I met an old friend ofcmina
who bad been Bailing in the war aone
. for about two rear. The captain of a
British patrol boat was an intimate
friend of hia and when the two met in
. Lnadoa after several years' aeparation
they natarally began to relate their ad
venture of the .
' "It aeema the patrol boat bad been
on duty in the North Be and early one
morn in ran aero German subma
rine wbioh waa having difficulty with
it engine. It eould neither submerge
aor advance, and upon seeing they were
at the mercy of the patrol the eaptaia
.'. and rrew ram up en deck and permit
ted themselves to be taken prisoner.
Placed Aboard Patrol
"They were placed aboard tbe patrol
and order were Riven to aink the aub
marine. Three ahot bad been fired and
the L'-boat waa commencing to ettle,
when th commander of the underwater
craft,, who had been calmly surv. 'ng
the aituation, waa aeen to ami! ir ,
ally. Upon being naked what he
smusing about th loaa of bi vessel,
t stated that he waa merely admiring
British msrkmanship.'
"Th final ahot had been fired and
the aubmarin had entirely disappeared
beneath the surface when th German
commander approached th British com
mander and told him that he might
feel even mora highly honored if he
kaew five Brit inn raptaina bad been
. sent to their death by British shells
fired at hia 'command. They ' were
shark led in on of th chamber of the
craft at the time ah waa captured and
their crew forced to surrender. ' ,
Order Out String Squad .',.
"The British commander said not
on word but gazed in wonderment at
such a display of. hardheartednena. Hi
eye remained fixed on th Oerman
captain for several minute after which
he calmly turned to hia officer instruct
ing them to line commander and crew
along th rail. After th firing squad
had been ordered below, members of
th crew examined th bodice to make
ur lif wa extinct, for a th cap
tain said, he never wanted it aaid he
had thrown capt ires ' overboard aad
amused himself by liatening to their
agonizing erica and ' watching .their
, death struggle. They had merely ex
' pi a ted their horrible crime of aending
tive British captains to their ..death
without even on word of protest.
"Well," h concluded, " I may be in
th Atlantic myself, before many weeka
hart passed. Jrea though I am a lit
tle .old, I feel a if I were missing
aometbing by remaining in th peace
ful trad of th Pacific." ?

Although United State Attorney 6.
C. Uuber has not yet received any con
clusive evidence of a campaign among
Honolulu Chines to raise fund to help
finance ' Dr. Hun Yat Ben' plan .to
foment a revolution in China, it i
stated in a message received yeaterday
by, tbe Liberty New , a local Chinese
paper' aud a stanch supporter of Dr.
Hun, that the nation is in a complete
tat of unrest and .that the centra
government official at Peking kav
ousted Chun Bing Kwau, military .gov
ernor of Canton.
According to the message tbe decis
ion to dismiss the military governor
waa reached at a recent meeting of tbe
officials of the central government, tb
reason being that Canton is now th
capital and headquarter of th south
ern division, and believed to b a
veritable hive of revolutionary plots
and plans. This is the first official step
taken by the central . government

of tbe last five fiscal year th Amer
ican Sugar Befininn- Company has re
ported an average annual cash balance
or .TJ,riH7,noo and inventoriea of alS.
801,000. This baa been because of the
requirementa of an industry which mar
keted it entir crop in six months. Un
der the plan of food administration the
situation will be reversed in that the
distribution of the crop will cover a
period of twelve months. This will add
to th financial requirement of the su
gar producers, especially ' the Cuba
concerns, and will relieve those of the
refiner. .. It is estimated Americaa u

more than adequate. This would re
