WASHINGTON, Jan. 28.-Senate
Democrats today returned the fire of
Republicans who for two' weeks have
been assailing the government ship
, Senator Walsh,; in an elaborate ar
gument, replying to Senator Hoofs
prediction that international difficul
ties would result from the meaaurc.
quoted prize court decisions. State de
partment .records and legal authori
ties of many nations to show that the
DSPs proposals were within inter
"There may be *alld arguments
against the pending bill founded upon
consid?rations of domestic policy."
declared Senator Walsh,;- "but there
are no evite' attendant upon lt, BO far
as our foreign relations are concerned,
that thus fat beeil pointed- oat, even
if the snipping board should: conclude
to teat, by purchase of one or more of
the belligerent vessels Iv our ports,
thc question aa to whether the Dec
laration of London bas forever fore
closed us from farthf r maintaining
var historic attitude concerning the
fights of neutrals to parchara? the v?a
sela of natlona at war."
Senator Walsh ?cclared tho ouly

ternational law to ino the colton .
3hip Dacia from danger of condemna
tion by a prize court was that her
transfer from German to American
ownership was made in good faith,
rho right of marine trahsfem in war
time had been maintained' repeatedly
by British courts; he asserted, and
strenuously supported by the United
States at all times. He added that if
Senator Root now held that lt would
be abandoned by this government, tho
senator had been derelict In hts duty
When secretary of state lb-tot point
ing out to thc country in connection

so vital a surrender had been made.
"It Ja Idle, however," he continued,
"to delude ourselves Into the notion

I already has come to the state depart
ment from some source that acquisi

I Senator Walsh referred to the. pur
chase of the ?teamer St. Mariam py
from Russian clttseas by Boston mer
chants during'the Crimean war, A
warning that French cruisers would
seise the ship had been disregarded, he
I said, and.the vessel was not.molested.
"But suppose she bas been ?*ap

The stfcator -quoted a1 length from
tho recofia pf British court* and ad
miralty Instructions to British naval
officers te show that Great Britain al

"There have been cases of merchant

they could hot escape and there, sold,
in which, after ir?.?<:h discussion ana
some hesitation of optctoni the alildity
of the purchase has boen sustained."
France ?Ihne ot'.the great commer
cial natlopB.: Senator Walsh said, had
held differently; hut the attitude of
France has been vigorously assailed
by the other powers.
Senator-Walsh read an opinion-by
Attorney General Gushing of the Unit
ed States, m 1854, maintaining the right
of a neutral to purchase a merchant
veasel during the war fre n a citizen
of .either of the belligerents and quot
ed former secretaries of state and a?
?reme court decisions in tho case, of
the Benito Es tonger during the Span
ish-American war. to show that thai
declaration had been the American
doctrine for over a hundred years.
"It is Idle to assert." the Bpeakei
continued, "that the Declaration ol
London, so contemptuously treated bj
the allies, can he appealed to by thea
tn Justification of sny course thej
may take in the present war, pr ever
it can j sst ly have any y?rsuaslve forci
