Considerate  progress, however having now lx-eii  made in this respect, the Japanese  government ha-; decided in accordan  cc with the principles of the open  iloor and erpial opportunities , ever  advocated by them. to permit cit-  i/ons'and vesicls of foreign countries to enter., from Mav 1.

Judgin;,  from the .present condition of 'he  interior of Manchuria it is , impossible for the Japanese authorities;-to provide such foreign travellers with adequate accomodation  in housing and other mutters. Those  therefore who enter" the interior of  Manchuria' do so entirely at their  own .risk and the Japanese government ' do "not hold themselves re  sj onsibl.-> for any injury which the  sustain from (.audits or other mar  auders.  ! ���������  NANAIMO NEWS NOTES  /  The Fuciniy>i'.s of St. ���������Andrews church  choir are going on with preparations for the concert to be given  ��������� at the church on Easter .Monday evening.
