The advice8 describe the measures
which have been adopted by the Chi
nese to block the navigation of their
rivers and the resulting effect npon
commerce. Numerous buoys and lights
have been removed and obstructions
placed at the mouth of the river Pei Ko.
Although the discontinuance of lights
and the presence at night of floating
buoya and the laying of torpedoea are
obvious hindrances to the cominz
and going of vessels nevertheless
with exception of the Chinese lines

chants are withholding their cargoes.

are no longer accepted, although they
can be sent from Shanghai.

safety of business ventures with Tien
Tsin is naturally pervading the busi

not block the port, but the Japanese
are likely to do so at any time. An
effort waa making to ensure immunity

nese vessels plying respectively be
tween tbeir own porta and common to
neutral port, but the consent of the
Japanese had not at the date of the ad
vices, been received.
