Its cargoes In ships plying between the

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
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.
