It  is  understood that  the Romolus struck an iceberg when  attempting/     to  pass   through  Soya  Strait and was damaged so that she  was leaking on her port' side   when  seized by the Japanese.   A prize crew  was put on board her and she    was  ���������started for Yoko Suku.   Her leak increased and it was necessary to beach  her in order to save her.  JAPS  FINANCES  GOOD.  A meeting of hankers and financiers  was held in Tokio today for the purpose of discussing tbe subscriptions  to the new domestic loans should it  be found to be over subscribed when  the list is opened. At the close of the  meeting the associated  bankers     announced that they would take sixty  million  yen,  about,  J.-.o,000,000.    The  lmpeiial household will take live million yen, and  other corporations and  individuals  forty million  yen.   It is  expected  that the loan will be doubly subscribed.       Count Okuma,     addressing today's  meeting,  said  that .  the Japanese domestic financial capacity was astonishing even its*friends.  I-le expiessed  the belief that    ��������� the  slight disturbance in financial conditions,  despite the enormous expenditures, was ,due to the fact that agriculture furnished  the country's great  wealth.       Continuing, Count' Okuma  said     that he believed the country  would continue the war without any  feeling of embarrassment.

Pi ess reports     from  that city are to  the effect that    direct steamer connection between Vancouver and Ladysmith was discussed  between    Supt.  Marpole  and     these  gentlemen.    This report is quite likely correct, as ths officials of the C.  P.  R., arc gathering all of the information they can relative to the    Island  aiul  their newly acquired   railway, and it is more than likely that  Superintendent  Marpole   desired     to  talk over the local situation and mat  ters    of interest    in  connection with  direct    communication    between   tho  two cities of Ladysmith and Vancouver,   and  he could  not find men better able to give him such information  THE CITY  POLICEMAN. than    Messrs.

The  icason lor this is that the Mountain  mills  lK-in*', much nearer the  than     the Coast mills,  and  having  incut,  that  would sell   them timber  and then practically destroy the value of     their investment might also  confiscate     their mills and that we  were good people to let alone.    The  result  was that the American investor who had possessions here felt sorry for it,  and those who had none,  but were looking for such, went  home and left us severely alone ever  since.  And the American press since  that time has not ceased warning in-  Msstors against putting  their money  into* B.C.   timber lands,  or,  in fact,  any  other  property in this  _.ro\ince  prairies'liable to  be ad\eisely alicclcd       by  'provincial  legislation.

Regarding the provisions of the law-  prohibiting the cx_.ort of logs, ������c  wish to say that while it is the pro-  ..ii.iti<n of the export of logs fiom  amis held under sp&ial license and  ,ea cs that al'iects us almost altogeth  ,jr, set we wish io enter a protest  agii.iist the law which imposes a rc-  3u.:cli������c num.     on logs cut oil land  ,oun  gia.itc-d  prior  to  18S7,    said  .uils  being coii.c.secl  free and clear  ui roxaliv of any kind with the right  to export or handle or dispose of tnc  . iiiinir  on tnese lands as the  owner  ut   see   lit     These   lams   became^  ,aL.a!jle and were  bought     and  ,ohi   in  good  Iditli     by  the  picsem  owneis or their .predecessors in title.  But   the  present go\eLnnient  with  a  ,ieu   cstciKMhly  to encourage       the  .jinlding ol saw inillsTlii tins province  passed'a law   placing  a     prohibitory  ,.ia on  the timber on  these lands   in  case it should be exported as logs.  This class of property from be.ng  a'.ah.able asset at once became  saleable, and such it is today.  la\ imposed was piohibilory, so that.  ,i, c.iuently was not for purposes ol  re-sumo that this law was enacted,  ml. to compel the owners lo icep  this timber in British Columbia until  it binned up or until some inillman  here would buy it at his own price-  The indignation ol the owneis and  Dinchaseis in gocil faith oi these  lands can be imagined when they  woke up to rcali/c th.tt their uncsl-  mcnis here had been practically confiscated without consideration, and  that by our government, who should  be the first to condemn such a method of dealing or doing business. The  .mi  .civ  ii lithe  'timber lands of all kinds, valuable lie-  fore the passing of this act oi injustice, cannot be sold; all of* which affects us, and everyone who has propel ty here,  adversely.  Tlie credit and honesty of our "province has  been  impaired;  this measure     was and  is a gigantic mistake  viewed from the standpoint of honesty or political  policy,  and wc want  it remoned and   the error remedied    so  that those Wiho do  business with iTs  and our property here may rely     on  getting a full measure      of "British  fair     1)1.1)',"   which  we  belie-e and  I now     -the masses of our people are  1 rcparcd and ready to give, and that  cn.ietnients such as this  will be taken oli' our statute books and the c\ii  effects undone as speedily as possible.  Wc may also add that we belie, e that  had the authors of this measure fully  understood the great injustice     they  were doing it would ne\er lia\e been  drawn up,   nor  would our good jieo-  I.lc*ha\c permitted  it;  and we know  ihat when our people come to understand      the  facts  they , will  demand  J'rom  their  representatives and  weiii-  bci s  a repeal    of    tins  measure     of  which we feel ashamed.     We want an*  opportunity .to dobusiness here     at  home, and  to operate without let   or  Junilw.nce and  to dispose of our natural iesources in the best market and  at  the best price obtainable,       and  what we want  for ourselves  we ask  for all those who invest with us, regardless of nationality.  Refeiring again to-the Oider-In-  Council prohibiting t.ie export " of  logs, wc may state, as evidence (if  tnc unpopularity of this expei imcntal  legislation, that when aH)o..t a year  ago we had a petition vrepared for  a lepeal of this enactment prohibiting  the export of logs .it was signed and  endorsed not only by all the loggers  but also by all the principal whole-  safe and retail merchants of Vancou-  \er as well as being endorsed by all  ihe labor councils.
