If something definite ; is not heard about her today they" freely admit that they can no longer reason- ' ably expect to be advised of her safe arrival at Tokohama. It waa announced this morning that R. P. Schwertn, general manager of thv Portland-Astetio company, Is cabling - from San Francisco for full information relative to the steamer's fate.

At the letter point there remain two 'blocks of 'the old cable car track that must be removed befors the new line ran operate Its en tire trackage. This It will be able to do by tomorrow evening. A force of men Is at work today tearing uo-the cable track. Today the passengers are being transferred st the corner of Washing ton arm Twenty-third streets to down town cars, but after tomorrow the hetshts cars will run down town. The cable line wse started on Febru ary 2-, 1(90. and although there haa al more than 1160,000. as the freight which she carried Is valued at 1187,087. The marine policies which they hold' will be of no use to them. -The cargo of the Arabia comprised about 1.000 tuns. It. wa made up of 28,474 barrels of flour valued at $124, 705.' one package of flour samples, one barrel of crockery, four boxes of dried prunes, one box of books, 181 botes of cigarettes, 16 cases of smoking to bacco. 6 pieces ef boilers and- ma chinery, 10C ' flatcar trucks, . ft car bodies,-42 bos parts-ahd six pieces of structural Iron. Should It be shown beyond, a doubt that the Arabia has been captured, the local officials of - the company declare that they are not In a position to state whether that fact would be. the mean of causing a postponement of . the sail ing date of the steamship Aragonla. now In th'e harbor, loading for Japan and China. The matter, - they explain, will have to be determined by the- manage ment of the line, and as yet they have received no advices. - The Aragonla la also receiving big consignment of flour for Japan. But ahlppera declare . there is no reason why the Aragonla should he -delayed at this port They are of the opinion that she will be dispatched On time, but It will be decided to leave behind the freight Intended for Japan. 1 ; Contraband of War. 1 r,- A big difference, of 'opinion seems to prevail as- to what character of goods can be held by Russia aa contraband of war. -The Insurance companies explain that in order for goods to be contraband they must not necessarily be consigned to the Japanese government, as some of the shippers contend Is tha case. The explanation la made by the underwriters that If the goods are : being sent to Japaneae merchants the Russiane can legally selie them for the reason thst the freight is going Into, their enemy's country, and it la reasonable, to sup pose that It will subsequently fall Into the hands of ths army and navy. Shippers contend that If the goods are consigned to Japanesei commercial firms and not to ths government they cannot be held by the Russians. - It Is thought te be very probable that this matter will be disposed of by the governments di rectly interested. The Arabia la flying the German flag, and it is said that Germany will undoubtedly demand that the steamer be released. - She Is carry ing an American cargo, owned by Amer icana, and In some -quarters It ta be lieved that the United States government will be called upon to Intervene. A communication haabeen received at the custom house from the department of commerce and labor .which says: - - - lIon Is Xaoladed. : ' - ' -The following list of articles, de fined Ay Japan and Russia as contraband of war, which Incur .the risk of capture and condemnation by the belligerents, are printed for the Information of owners, masters and agents of vessels and others concerned.
