OF COUNT NOGI AND
WIFE TO BE OBSERVED
The seventh anniversary nf the death
of General Count M. Nogi, one of the
greatest .Tapnnese soldiers during the
reign of Mutsuhito, the late
of Japan, will be fit t inch- honored
a memorinl serviep h;."n is planned
by the Hilo Japanese. The service
will be held at the Sodnshu sert tem
ple in the Big Island eity Saturday
The double suieide nf Count and
Countess Nogi on the night of Sep
tember 1.1, seven years ngn, was the
elimax of their devotion to the former
ruler of Japan. Muti-uhito. Just as
the minute guns begun to hearld to
the sorrowing ritiens of Tokin thnt
the hearse containing the remains of
the beloved ruler was departing for
the last journey to the burial plot at
Moinoynma, Kyoto, the devoted count
and his faithful wife committed sui
cide by "hnra kiri," just as a samurai
and his wife of the ancient days of
the Bushido would have done. They
left their poems, srtt)ing forth the
reasons for their sacrifices at their
nnn hands, iu uhich they said that
they were following their departed
master to his resting place.
The death of the count and countess
might seem rash and improper
from a viewpoint of the Japanese
knighthood it is quite proper thnt a
devoted servant should show his de
votion to the departed master by com
mitting hura kiri in order to follow
him to the world beyond, the Japanese
believe. Nogi 's act. therefore, was
admired by the whole Japanese nation,
and no one ilisapprm ed it.
According to the Buddhist belief, the
first, third, fifth, seventh, thirteenth,
seventeenth and twenty fifth anniver
sniies of the death nf a person are to
be observed. As this year falls on the
seventh anniversary of Nogi's death,
inemiirial services in honor of the fa
mini Japanese general and his wife
-Mill be held in nil parts of Japan.

New Price For Raw
Market Starts Another Period of
Readjustment In Which Larger
Profits and New War Revenue
Bill Enter Into Calculations
moutlis to adjust the
company securities to I
price or sugar
wartime conditions with the price for j
raw sugar set just above six cents a 1
pound, the stock market is now facing
a new period of readjustment. During '
rhe long months that have passed since I
the I'nited States entered the war
there has been a steady marking down I
of quotations but now conditions are
reversed and a marking up agniu will ,
be in order.
Interest in sugar stocks revived sud '
denly and sharply on the local stock 1
exchange Tuesday afternoon and yea 1
terday and it has been many a day j
since so many shares changed hands,
the sales between boards and at the
session running up to 11X1 shares.
Price Marked Up
Thus far the increase in prices of
securities had had only its bcgiuniug
but all of the sales reported yesterday
were at higher figures. Olaa sold ut

Hawaiian Coininercial Sugar at bl

the bid price for F.wa was l.."i above

An increase of nearly a cent aud a
piarter iu the price of raw suar will
mean the difference of operating at a
profit or at a loss to some of the coin
panics. Several will operate this ear
either at an actual loss or practically
so because of smaller crops and in
1 reused costs. 1 11 this class are Ho
nokaa, Pacific Sugar Mill and Wailuku.
Olaa cut off dividends but can resume

product obtainable. So will it be with
Not AU Profit
Iu connection with the adjustment of
the prices of such securities to the
new price for raw sugars there will
have to be taken into consideration
the taxes that are to be paid under
the new war revenue bill that is now
pending. With companies like Olaa,
which has had only a very brief period
as a dividend payer, the matter of
taxation does not enter so largely into
calculations. It is the companies that
this year have paid excess profits taxes
that are most interested in the in
The difference between the next crop
