specially called to consider Maiqula
Ito's plan of Corcnn policy, necessitated

lait convention between Corea and
1'iie details of Marquis Ito's plans are
unknown, but tho fundamental points
ate believed to consist In effecting a
thorough reform In the land system,

tem of judiciary and police on tho Jap
anese plan. Theeo measures will
naturally bo considerable of a drain on
