I But Never In History Has a
? German Ambassador Been
I Handed His Passports.
,1C'^ TH KN tlie negro messenger of
?/m/ (he state department in
yf J Washington, who for almost
forty years Iras been tbe.
Amdcan governments official pass
port carrier, visits tim German embas
sy-ir the break with Germany comes
-lt will be tbe first time lu thc history
of the United States that this country
bas severed relations with that empire
or with any of the states which were
united to form tho kaiser's realm.
Since our government was founded
many ambassadors have been sent
home, but In the mnjorlty of cases the
cause was their own Indiscretions.
Thc closest approximation to tho pres
ent situation was in the case of tue
famous Citizen Genet, in thc adminis
tration of Washington, aud even that
meddling Frenchman was more to
blame for lils recall than tho Girondist
government which lind sent him here
to enlist thia country us nit ally of
Frnuce In her war with England.
Genet traveled from one port' of tbe
country to the other, campaigning for
sympathy for his own country and rous
ing factional and racial Htrife So nr
dent was he in Ids campaign that he
publicly attacked the most prominent
persons, and nf ter a sitectneulnr'con
troversy with Johu jay mid Itufus
King, wrote un insolent loiter to Pres
Ident. Washington. Soon thereafter
France was requested to recull him
Passports wore handed fo bim. but he
never returned to Prance: He bad mar
tied a daughter of Governor Clinton.'
and be lived lu obscurity ou bis estates
In the Hudson valley until 1830.
Arrange Treaty With British.
Hardly liad Genet passed from pub
lie , view when, hr 1704. ibo British
unvy. and especially British privateers,
seized American ships abd cargoes, by
the scores uudcr the pretense .that tiley
might be carrying aid to Preuve. The
Indignation of the country was'great,
but as there was no ambassador to
?end home the house of representa
lives passed a bill prohibiting all com
mercial intercourse betw^eu citizens of
the two couutries. The seuat? voted
it down, and then Washington vent
John Joy tr> London as envoy ex
traordinary to arrange fl treaty. -The
treaty was arranged, but when t?ie seu: ;
ate advised Washington, to sign lt the"
whole country was rousedr to auger
Jay and Washington were bitterly 'de-,
nounccd. Virginia threatened to se
cede, and writers .lu the. newspapers
even accused the president of venality.
The treaty was so favorable to tl|e
British that tbo\French saw lu lt a se-'
cret alliance with England, and as a
result the Robssplerre government de
manded the recall of Gouverneur Mor
ris, the American minister.
Morris was the first American envoy
to have bis passports returned by the
government to which he wus assigned,
but the two countries did not go to
war. although the international situa
tion was as tangled as lt is today, and
Washington was bitterly assailed by
his political opponents. Although the'j
fact ls forgotten nowadays. France
and the United States were bound to
gether by a treaty of offensive and de
fensive alliance, yet as soon as Great
Britain declared wai- and attacked
France the American government, is
sued a proclamation of neutrality.
rnnis on ita face was a breach of the
national contract, and Washington was
severely scored for not aiding France,
for permitting the British to bring
prizes into American ports, for allow
ing Englishmen to bo*rd nu American
sblp In' Long Island sound mid for per
mitting English warships to be flited
Oiit in American ports. But hi .those
dsya France had troubles plethoric at
homo, and she sought uo additional
ones across the ocean, although It ap
peared to lier that Washington ; was
doing lus utmost to provoke a war.
Minister Monroe HecaHed.
. Ja mc a Monroe was sent to France as
Morris' successor, but bd'aggravated
the situation, the tenseness of which
hud been increased by the capture of
an American ship near the''Delaware
capes by a'Fi ench privateer. As ?.re
suit of this capture the French. minis-;
ter, Adet;.was called on for.an expla
nation. He.could give none, and Mon
roe .was,recalled.!?Charles C. Pinckney
was sent abroad as bia'successor, but
the French ' directory, -refused to re
ceive him until ber grievances had been
righted. A? America was incensed, the
president proclaiming a doy of fas fing,
humiliation end prayer;, congress waa
called: President 'Adams denounced
.Hhs refusal on, the part of France ?to
recclvo our minister ls the dental of a
right.'.' ; But war did not follow. Ker.
did lt follow* soon 'tt?re?fter wt??;
Pinckncy. Gerry and Marshall, who
had,been ordered to heal the
enees with Franctv were boldly told, hy
Talleyrand that money would mend ail
tho 110 of tho Paris government. Amer
ican anser was great over this dcrapvi

British Representatives Have $
Been Sent -Back For Inter- j .
terence With Commerce. : :
cities were fortified, and even thc navy
and privateers were ordered to capture
tbe cruisers, of France. Yet France did
not declare war.
During tile Napoleonic wars the for
eign interests of tbe United States
were constantly menaced by one or tbe
otber of tbe belligerents. The decrees
of Napoleon were usually aimed at
firent Britain, but they utmost invert*
ably bit American commerce, and the
Btitish orders In council just ns fre
quently harmed the interests of the
United States. In those days no Euro
pean power permitted Buy foreign
ships to carry on any trndo with her
colonies, and ns tho United States bad
no colonies of her own, these orders In
council worked n great hardship on the
American merchant marine. On Nov.
15, 1800, n law went Into effect forbid
ding the importation from Great Brit
ain of"~a long list of goods. This was
regarded as n polite woy of breaking
off diplomatic relations.
Blow to American Commerce.
Ono week after this hill was passed
and before thc law became effective a
British warship attacked au American
ship two miles off Sandy Hook and
shot off the' head of tbe helmsman.
The body of the sailor was viewed by
Indignant crowds in New ?ork. Pres
ident JcWerson ordered British war
ships to leave Amcrlcaa porlB and sent
commissioners to Eugland to demand
redress. They arrived abroad Just as
Napoleon Issued his famous Berlin de
cree blockading the British Islands and
practically wiping out American trade.
, Tba'' British countered by prohibiting
j neutral trade with Franco, and as
America was practically the only na
tion then trading with France, the
blow was a most serious oue to the
commerce of this country. The United
States was ground between th? two
millstones-England trying to drive
America into a war against Napoleon,
France trying to force ber into strife
with England. v
At this crucial juncture the Britlsl
Whigs fell from power, and while th?
new government was studying the sit
uatlon a bomb upset everything. Thc
Leopard, a British warship, which lim
been assisting in a high handed block
adefof the American coast for thret
years, made nu attack on the Cbesa
peake, an American warship suspected
of having British deserters aboard
killed three and wounded\elghteen ol
the crew a .* J almost sank the vesse
before the American commander beulet
down bis flag. Again the country wo?
aroused over thc outrage. President
Jefferson issued a proclamation shut
ting our ports to armed ships of Eng
land, troops were called' out, congres;
was gathered and a commlsslocsr aeni
to England to demand redress. Af te:
many delays Great Brim lu dlsavowet
tho Leopard's acts and recalled bet
commander. Then congress, to cure al
the. Ills that Napoleon and Britain hat
heaped on America, passed a law pro
h (biting American ships from leavlnj
the porta of the United States for thos<
of auy foreign power.
But plenty of ships left Ameiicai
ports surreptitiously oed so erowdet
the h arbora of Spain that Napoleon
saw his opportunity and seized then
alL Again the war cry was raised, am
the French minister was about to bi
seut homo when thc Spaniards rose
drove Napoleon out of the country nut
liberated every American ship.
Left England In Angry Hood.
Meanwhile Plnckney, the Amsalcai
minister at London, tried to hedi tin
breach between the two conn trie,
growing out. of the orders In council
He was unable'to make progress, sud
taking advantage of the ?Tn Hu re of tb
British to appoint a minister to sue
eeed Jackson, who had been sent hom
because"hu had insulted President Mad
ison, asked for bis passports and h
1811 left London tn a.threatening man
ncr. This was the only timo in histor,
that an American minister rcturnei
. from England In a huff. In the follow
Log months the relations between th
two countries grew more strained ore
the impressment of American seamoi
and the seizure of American cargool
and tn June. 1812. ; war.'was declared
Then the British. minister received hi
passports, but in a different spirit fret
that tn which bis predecessors had rt
celved theirs. t
Other serious breaches tjf diplomat!
relations, of course, occurred precedlni
the war with Mexico "hi 1840 and th
more recent war \with Spain. Th
United States for a long tinto bad a
diplomatic relations with Serbia af te
the klug and queen were slain In Bel
grade, nor did this country recognize
Huerta ta 1013-14. although tbe Unite
States ?egatlon in Mexico City wa
kept open during, the absence of th
American minister., ?1868 the Amei
lesa government withdrew Jts ininti
ter. General McMahon, from Pnragua
and declined to bold any diplomatic u
tezcoorse with that, country bocaus
President Lopes had arreatcl, imprh
oned and tortured an American and ai
Englishman who. were, in the persona
sult of tho "American-mister, A eoe
gre&sionni inquiry placed tbe,M&nWo?

breaking off1 of relations.
