But the  vessel will be unable to get .away,  for some days longer, as her captain, J. Bruce, and owner, Stanley  Dollar, have both been arrested on  charges of gross cheat. It is charged Iliali they induced the Japanese'  passengers to purchase tickets by the-  slearner by representing that, she  was. to take them to Seattle or Ta-  eoma, \vheii instead she cannot land  passengers at either of these ports,  but has to goto Victoria. The cases  against thc men will come up tomorrow in thc police court. A number  of Japanese have left the vessel asdic-result of the trouble and she has  been libelled *fo secure the return  of their passage money."  The   Japanese  barkentine  Hagasjii'  Maru,  with a crew of a hundred aud  eight men,  has arrived on  this coast  for   the  purpose of putting  up  a full  cargo  of salt fish,  and  her .presence  here is likely to lead to trouble.  The  department  of Marine       and  Fisheries has already received ' notice  of the arrival of the Japanese..ship at  Port  Simpson,  and  it  is likely  that  clearance  from  that port  will       be  "withheld until officers of the department  have  fully  investigated  the intentions of the master of tlic vessel,  Captain  Yoshida.  Captain Yoshida, it is announced in  despatches from Port Simpson, bold  ly stated on Sunday night on arrival  at the northern port, that he,intended, to put up dog salmon for the Japanese maiket, and that he' had  brought his large crew of men with  him  to secure the fish.  Of course ft is against the. laws of  Canada for aliens to carry on fishing  opera!ions within the -.three-mile limit, and only within prohibited waters could the Japanese secure the  salmon. The anly manner in which  the ship Jean fogally secure a cargo on  this coast is for the fish to be turned over to hor by fishermen who are  naturalized and possess fishing licenses. .  To ascertain if any of the hundred  and eight men on board ihe Hagashi  Mam are British' subjects, an investigation will hie immediately- undertaken Jiy the Department |>f Marine and  Fisheries. It  is certain  that the crew  of the Japanese vessel have no'licenses   to   take  dog or sockeye salmon  en this coast,  and   without those li-  ce'ns~6sTtfiey- will not be permitted to  fish. If Captain Yoshida attempts to  fish illegally it is likely his ship and  crew will be gathered in  by the Canadian     government cruiser.

Yoshida, for    the  passage from Dixon  Entrance to the  harbor  at  Port  Simpson   is  a  most  tortuous one.  It .is difficult for      a  steamer  to makV the   rim   into  Port  Simpson   from Dixon   Entrance,   and  until the arrival of the Japanese ship  it was,thought impossible that      a  sailing vessel could get in.   All the  passages     leading from Dixon     Entrance to     Port Simpson are beset  with  rocks and rt-efs,. and- the water-  is so deep   that anchorage  is  hardly  to be oh'tained.  The Hagashi is a vessel of six hundred   tons. She sailed  across     from  Hokodate.     ballasted  with salt with  which to cure the fish she expects  to  secure. Her crew of  108  men'are all  fishermen.
