and January last, and woe proceeded

of Parliament from Ireland and ollicars

January, 1S31,
In thli trial no claim o! American cltlzenabip

Bjyton, however, visited the United
Htatee Consulate at Dublin in November,
1880, and procured a passport Issued bin)
by tbe State Department, under date of
November 20:h, lstw, requesting its viae.
Barrowa, Oonaul, there under mlaapprebenaion
of bis oliiclai duty in the premiaea

ground that Bjyton waa one of the traver era
in a pending Hlate trial, audatked lliu

citizen, The Deparlmeut anaweretj,
poatponlginatrucilonaa* to any further application
he might make for protection until
the cue ahouid arise, but appjovlng
Barrowa' refusal to grant a viae, not on the

but beoauae of the long standing of execulion
ol the order requiring that the paaaport

ilso stated to tho Gooiul tliat Doyton appeared
by the recordaol the Depurtmsul
lu be a native born cltisen ut the
United States, having been born in
Ibe Htate ol New York. Kirly in February
liat Boyton luade application to tbo Oon ul
at Dublin for a now psaspnrt, which
application, under the rulea, wan tratmmlited
with the old passport to the United
States legation at London. In hie letter
?f communication to Minister Lowell,
Ooniul Barrows conveyed the Imprtuk n
that the department uad approved hie
refusal to attach hla viae to tho puapoit
on the ground that Boyton was one of the
traveraera at the atate trial, whereupon
Lowell asked for the correspondence In
the cue, and at the eame time suggeB'ed
Ibat lloyton direct Ills application
lo the Legation. Barrows sent to Lowell, In
Theby, the correspondence had with the
Department, and mentioned the circumstance
that Boyton had told hiin
that he wu not a native born cltisen of
the United States, having been born in
Ireland and taken to America when >
child. On the 2d of March last the British
Parliament passed the measure known as
the "Coercion Act." Under that statute
a warrant far the arrest of Michael 1', Boyton,
of Kildare, waa leaned and Boyton
was arrested on the 18th of March.
He tt occe telegraphed to Minister
Lowell, demanding protection from
the United States. Minister Lowell
then had several Interviews with the Briti-u
? A ir- - ' *
lou ocuicviu; iui x-uicigu uhiih in return
to Boyton'a complaint, and also instructed
Barrows to visit tbe prisoner and obtain
proof in regard to bis American eitiaeuship,
and if the fact of such citizenship
waa fully ascertained, to take energetic
steps for his protection. Barrows visited
Boyton end received from him a circumstantial
declaration that be was born in
Ireland in 184(3, his father emigrated to the
United Htatee in 1850 and that he (tho
youngest Boy ton) served in the U. S.
Navy in 1804 06. Thereupon Minister
Lowell endeavored to remove a doubt suggested
by the discrepancy botween Boyton'a
statement and tho'Htate Department
record in the matter of his application for
passport, and to that eud wrote directly
to Boyton asking an explanation. Boytou
replied by a vorbal statement to Consul
Barrowa denying the record in regnrd to bie
passport, alleging his father's full natural!*
r.ation while he was a minor, but without
assigning the date for that sot, and reasserting
his claim to American citizenship.
