The Pacific Mall Steamship Company has commu nicated to the State Department its ap prehension as to the safety of some of Its cargoes In ships plying between the Pacific Coast and Chinese and Japan ese ports on account of the seizure of the Malacca and the condemnation by a prize court of the British steamship Allanton. The company's agents ask what they may expect and for a defini tion of contraband of war liable to seiz ure. No answer has ns yet been re turned, but the whole subject Is under careful consideration, and Its commer cial Importance may demand the Issue of a formal notice from the Govern ment to the American marines of Its rights and privileges and of the limi tations imposed by the' war upon trade operations. The inquiry probably was Inspired by the entry of the Russian Vladivostok squadron Into the Pacific and the as sumption that the squadron, having shown no disposition to find and attack any of the Japanese naval vessels, must be cruising after merchant ships. Much flour, pork and canned meats nre now in transit from the groat West ern mills and packing-houses to China and Japan, all going at tho shippers' risk. Change ot Water often brings on diar rhoea.
