Chargé Jay to the Secretary of State.
Tokyo , July 23, 1908 .
(Mr. Jay reports that he has been informed by the vice minister for foreign affairs that the time and place of meeting of the opium commission are agreeable to the Japanese Government, and that the appointment of commissioners is awaiting action by the new cabinet. States that as the method of investigation must be referred to the Government of Formosa, some delay is unavoidable.)
