NO ACTION LIKELY
AS RESULT OF THE SINKING OF FISHING TUG GRACIE M
Ottawa, June 8. - Commander Spain, of the marine department, will leave tonight for Port Stanley to investigate the circumstances connected with the running down of the American fishing tug Gracie M. by the Canadian cruiser Vigilant, yesterday, off Middle Island, Lake Erie. Capt. Dunn's report has been received at the department. The details are practically the same as published today, alleging that the Gracie M. was unlawfully fishing in Canadian waters and was sunk in collision with the Vigilant, after several shots had been fired to bring the tug to a stop. The admission of Capt. Galbraith, of the tug, that he was at fault, it is thought will preclude any action by the United States government, if such had been contemplated.
