The following is a February 24, 1905 San-in Shimbun article announcing that Takeshima (Liancourt Rocks) has been incorporated into Japanese territory and made a part of Shimane Prefecture. Here is the translation:
Oki's New Island
Eighty-five nautical ri northwest of Oki Island, at 37 degrees 9 minutes 30 seconds north and 131 degrees 55 minutes east, is an island called Takeshima. The prefectural governor has announced that this island is now under the jurisdiction of Oki County. The island is two islands with a circumference of about 15 cho. There are several islets around the islands and a channel between them where boats can anchor. They say that even though grass grows there, there are no trees.
