Although the samurai members of this group were barred by their low rank from holding the highest positions (which were reserved for court nobles and daimyo from various important han) it was now their proposals which increasingly determined policy. Evidence of the growth in the influence of the imperial reform ers was rapidly forthcoming: on 2 February, Sanj o and Iwakura were elevated to become the deputies to Prince Arisugawa, a neut ral figurehead who held the highest position in government.
On 2 March government members from Satsuma, Choshu, Tosa and Hizen presented a memorial in the names of their daimyo offer ing the return of their lands to the Emperor. The language of the memorial was ambiguous, however, and when the issue of con verting han into prefectures governed by imperial officials was put both to an assembly of notables, including daim)'O, and to the as sembly of samurai representatives from all the han, the opinions expressed were generally in favour of the continuation of the exist ing system.
At the time, however, Satsuma and Choshu, in challenging the numerically superior forces of the Bakufu, could not, and did not, assume that the latter would col lapse as quickly as it did; and had the civil war been prolonged, the Western powers might well have been offered an opportunity to intervene in Japanese affairs. Indeed, it might be argued that the most obvious way to safeguard Japanese independence would have been to support rather than attack the Tokugawa Shogunate. In fact, however, the south-western han became determined to work for the latter's destruction after 1 865, when the Bakufu leaders had rej ected cooperation and power-sharing with the maj or daimyo and were undertaking serious reforms, including military reorganisation.
