The Newfoundland Question.
[per press association.]
liOndon, June 27 and 28
The captain of H.M.S. Emerald is being sued for damages for forcibly closing Baird's lobster factories at St. George's, Newfoundland.
In the House of Commons Sir James Fergusson denied that the Island of Dominica, in the West Indies, is being exchanged for French rights in Newfoundland. A Blue Book on the Newfoundland fishery dispute has been issued. In a despatch of May last the Marquis of Salisbury refuses to recognise the right of the French commander to interfere with British commandei's.
The St. John's correspondent of the " Daily News" telegraphs that the colonists are purchasing rifles, and a collision with the French is feared.
