FIRE OF RE
Senator Walsh in Replying to Pr?t

(By As lue in ted floss.)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 28.?Senate
Democrats today returned the fire of
Republican* who. for two weeks have
been assailing the government ship
i Senator Wulsh, in an ' elaborate ar
gument, replying to Senator Hoot's
prediction that international difficul
ties would result from the measure,
quoted prize court decisions. Statr de
partment records and legal authori
ties of many nations to show that the
bill's proposals were within inter
"There may be valid argu-uent3
against the pending bill founded upon
considerations of domestic policy,"
declared Senator Walsh, "but there
are' no evils attendant upon It, so far
as our: foreign rotations are concerned,
that thus far beea pointed out, even
If the shipping board Bhould conclude
to test, by purchase of one or more of
the belligerent vessels in our ports,
the question as to whether tho Dec
laration of London has forever fore
closed us from farther maintaining
our historic attitude concerning the
rights of neutrals to purchase the ves
sels of nations at war." .
Senator Walsh declared the only
thing that must be proved under in
ternational law to free tho cotton i
ship Dacla from danger of condemna- !
tion by a prize court was that her
transfer, from German to American 1
ownership was made in good faith.
The right of marine transfers in War
t|me had' been maintained repeatedly 1
by British courts, he asserted, and ?
strenuously supported by the United
States at all' times. He added thjat if
Senator. Root now held that It would
be abandoned, by thiB government, the
senator had - been' derelict' in his duty
when secretary of state In not point
ing out to the country In connection
with the Declaration of London that
so vital.a surrender had beeu made.
\ "It is Idle, ..however," he continued,
"to delude ourselves into the'notion
that the Institution is one free from
doubt. It Is understood an Intimation
already has come to the state depart
ment from some source that acquisi
tion of any of the socalled 'interned
ships' would be regarded as- 'apparent
ly unlawful.' But what of it? Are
we to abandon our historic attitude
upon this question simply because
some or all of the warring nations
may' exhibit some disposition to dis-"
pute It; are we to decline to put the
question to the test merely because of
a vague apprehension?"
Senator Walsh: referred to the pur
chase of the steamer St. Harlampy
from Russian citizens by Boston mer
chants during the Crimean war. A
warning that French cruisers would
selso'the ship had been disregarded, he
said, and the Vessel was not molested.
"But suppose- she has - boon cap
tured. V be bald. ''What reason is there
to suppose that such an incident
would have Involved us in war with
France? If redress were, not obtain
able through diplomatic channels, this,
government doubtless would have de
manded that the controversy bo arbit

controverted legal question would i

The. Kenat or quoted at length from
tho records of British courts and ad
miralty instructions to British nayai
officers to show that Great Britain al
ways? hu.t held that a bona fide trans
frr of an enemy ship to a neutral (lag
in war time was recognized. He quol
<?n an English ruling which said:
! "There have been cases of merchant
vessels driven Into porta nut. of which i
they could not escape and there sold,
i}> which, after much discussion and
some hesitation of opinion, the all Uli t y
3f the purchase has been sustained."
. France alone of the great commer
cial nations, Senator Walsh said, had
held differently; but the attitude of
France has'been vigorously assailed
by the other powern.
Senator Walsh read an opinion by
Attorney General Gushing of the. Unit
ed States. In 1854, maintaining the right
of a 'neutral to purchase a merchant
vessel during the war from a citizen
of either of the belligerents and quot
ed former secretaries of state and su
preme court decisions in the case of
thc.Bonlto Estangcr during the Span
ish-American war, to show that that
dec' ration had been the American
do' .rine for over a hundred years.
"It Is Idle to assert." the speaker
continued, "that the Declaration of
London, so contemptuously treated'by
the allies, can be appealed to by them
In justification of any course they
may take in the present war. or even
It can justly have any persuasive force
In'the ultimate determination of oar
right to purchase the interned ships."
