No. 258.
Mr. Boutelle to Mr. Bayard.


I have just received a dispatch from Eastport, Me., stating that American boats after herring for sardines at St. Andrews, New Brunswick, were driven away last night by the Dominion cruiser Middleton, and it is announced that no American boats will be allowed to take herring for any purpose. I earnestly invoke the immediate attention of the Department to this matter.
