it was announced that a speedy and
satisfactory solution of the GlouceBter-
Newfoundland fisheries controversy was
in sight.
The facts obtained Bhowed
that the Newfoundland inspector of
revenue protection service directed that
American vessels should not be allowed
to fish under American register, on the
ground that they had never done so in
the past. Prior to this time the Amer­
ican fishermen had bought bait in New­
foundland under fishing license. They
are now prevented by law from buying
bait, and the authorities have been un­
willing to permit them to catch herring
without a special fishing license.
Mr. Root informed the ambassador
that an American register is a ship’s
highest proof of natior.ality, and carries
with it not only a license to trade, but
also a regular fishing license.
As soon as this fact is made clear to
the Newfoundland authorities, it is ex­
pected they w ill withdraw all objec­
tion. Meantime, tbe American fisher­
men, with tbe approval of tbe State
department, have been instructed to
continue their fishing.
France Ready to Enforce Demands on
Venezuelan Government.
Washington, Oct. 20.— Secretary Rdbt
is doing all he can to assist in bringing
about a settlement of the differences
between tbe French and Venezuelan
governments growing out of the refusal
of tbe latter to longer maintain diplo­
matic relations with M. Taigny, French
charge d ’ affairs, in Caracas. Today he
discussed the situation with both M.
Jusserand, the French ambassador, and
Senor Veloz, the Venezuelan charge
d’affairs here.
The French ambassador, as he was
leaving the 8tate department, said M.
Taigny was entirely without fault in
the matter. He had merely obeyed tbe
directions of the Paris foreign office
when he sent to tbe Venezuelan gov­
ernment a letter of protest against its
action in seizing the property of the
French cable company.
“ Therefore,” said the ambassador,
“ France w ill support him .” He added
significantly: “ We have two beautiful
warships now in the Caribbean sea.”
