Chargé Carter to the Secretary of State.


(Mr. Carter reports that Sir Edward Grey is informed by the governor of Newfoundland that the rumor that American fishing nets and tackle had been maliciously interferred with is unfounded. The inspector who had been sent to investigate the matter reports that no willful detachment of nets and tackle has taken place, and that no complaints of willful damage have been made to the magistrate at Bonne Bay, and that no antagonistic feeling exists between the citizens of the two countries.)
