The Japanese Chargé to Acting Secretary Adee.


The Japanese Government will open the port of Tairen (Dalney) to the commerce of all nations on September 1. That port will be a “free port,” and no import or export duty shall be levied on merchandise imported into or exported from Kwan-to-shu (Kwantung) through that port. From the same date foreign vessels, no less than Japanese-owned vessels, will be permitted to engage in traffic between Tairen and those ports of Japan that are open to foreign commerce.
