The Brooklyn Eagle qu- tes fromja speech
delivered by Mr. Cleveland in the spring of
1S'S2, in Buffalo, while he was mayor of that
city, in which he takes strong grounds in
favor of maintaining the rights of Ameri
can citizens abroad. In that speech Mr.
Cleveland said: "We do not claim to
make law s lor other countries, but we do in
sist that whatsoever those laws may be, they
shall, in the interests of human freedom and
the rights of mankind, bo far as they invol
ve the liberty of our citizens, be speedily
administered. We have a right to say, and
do say, that mere suspicion, without exam
ination cr trial, is not sufficient to justify
the long imprisonment of a citizen of Amer
ica. Other nations may permit their citi
zens to be thus imprisoned. Ours will not.
And this in tff.ct has been solemnly declar
ed by statute." Since Mr. Blaine's friends
are endeavoring to pre empt in his behalf
the policy which Mr. Cleveland foreshadows
in this speech, our adopted fellow-citizens
will find in the above paragraph sufficient
ground for declining to recognize the pre
emption. There is no right that President
Cleveland would not as firmly enforce and
no injury for which he would not as prom
ptly demand redress as any man in this
couutry. He would not allow a McSweeney
to appeal in vain as Mr. Blaine did, until
forced by public clamor to interfere.
