The commandeering bf the Hocking

ls an insolent denial ot American

These two ships were bought from J
a Danish line by tba American Trans- :
atlantic company of lj-elaware. Thus
there was no, taint of belligerent 1
origin. They passed from ono neu? 1

Great Britain, however, seized the~?
nt the (irst opportunity, as she has
seized many other American vessels,
and then, without even awniting judg
ment in her own prize courts, re
quisitioned them for her own trade.
Such action ?B not only In defiance
of American rights but it ia contrary
to British law. If thc British gov
ernment isn't disposed to he'd the
protests of the United States, it will
do well at Inast to heed tr 3 advice
given in tho House of Lords hy Vis
count Bryce, thc former American
nmbnssador, and Lord Landsdowne,
loader of tho conservative- party,
against abusing their power under the
plea of "necessity."
If the British government means
to follow the Karl of Portsmouth, who
urges it to "sweep away all Judicial
niceties" and all Hiich "rubbish" as
prize court law and the declaration

laws of our ancestors," lt is no better
