AN HISTORIC DEllT.
THE l'llENCII SPOLIATION CLAIMS ON
THE KVK OF SirrTI.F.MENT.
InlfirMlns Facts Regarding n (invent
mental Obligation Contracted During
the Revolution Which lint lteninlued
I'npnld for Ninety Years.
"A Long Unpaid Debt" Is tho very ap
propriate title of Jlr. William Kvcrctt's
article In the February "Atlantic" on tlio
Frincli Spoliation Claims, now fondly sup
oscd to he oti tlio point of settlement by
Congress after n delay of ninety years.
Such another instance ot (iovcrmcntal
negligence and dishonesty is not rceonled
In our annals.
This debt was contracted in the Revolu
tion, and, though now owed lo our own
tUIens, was tlio price of Franco's support
In our struRglo for Independence. France
came to our old in 1778, and agreed to as
slst us witli men and ships. Wo agreed in
return to guarantee to King Louis XVI.
his possessions in tho West Indies, ond such
conquests as his forces should lnako dur
ing the war; and, as ho bellied us, to help

manned and coulnncd for tlio purpose.
liuimiiici uiinai lu 1,111111 -i-jciivii oiuiu
peculiar privileges in our iKrts during the
We further agreed to grant French ships
continuance of hostilities with Dngland,
continuance 01 1
and forever after.
These treaties were made in tho darkest
hours of American liberty, and only Just
in time to save the ragged Continental
army from utter collapse. Tlio French
troops arrived promptly nnd placed them
selves uhder tlio orders of Washington;
tlio ships which brought them to our
shores made sail against the enemy, and
soldiers nnd sailors boUi for the uoxt
threo years fought side by sldo with the
patriot Americans against the common
foe. The French alliance was tho turn
ing point of tho war; Its execution was
the beginning of the end of llrltlsh domi
nation lit America. The allied forces sh ut
tho F.nglish nriny up In Yorktown, and
with thcsurrciidcrof CormvalHs came the
uctiialdcmonstrationof lhat Independence
which had been proclaimed at Philadel
phia live years before.
The French forces sailed home, King
Louis had kept Ills word and America
wus free, lint how had the Continental
Congress fulllllcd Its part of tlio bargain?
Had It furnished tho French Admirals
the ships of war the treaty called for?
Had It helped them to retain tlio French
Crown's possc)Ions In tho West India
Islands? Had it guided tho French arms
lo new American conquests outside tlio
territory Helmed ns tho future United
Stutes? None or theso citiestlons can bo
answered suvo In thonegnllvc. Congress
sent no ships to tlio West Indies, tho
American armies fouirht only where
American Interests wero at stake, and
when thclltltish lleet made head against
Kine Louis' In American waters. French
ilands wero sclcd and held by Ilngllsh
forces without n defensive blow being
t-lruek by American nrms, either dur
ing tlicltcvnltitlon or after it. Our inde
pendence acknowledged by Great Jlrltalu
wo made peace on tlio Instant, and left
tho French licet to their own devices.
France pardoned nllthi", perforce. She
Imdcomcto the asttstanco of an infant
cCmmoiiwcalth, and her rulers preferred
to believe Hint tho Continental Congress
had failed in Its contract through sheer
Inability to carry it out. Tho treaty of
lciSstlllhcld good in tho great privileges'
guaranteed to French cssels In American
too ports, and with that tho French Minis
ters wero fain to be content. Jhtt even In
this they were doomed to disappointment.
Tlio great French Revolution loomed
up a dark cloud over Knrope. Tlio cloud
burst and with tlio other national tics that
w ere jiiclelv shattered was that existing be-
tw ecu Franco and tho United States. The
Frentli Republic took the field against all
comers; renewing tlio light wlthlmgland,
It looked confidently to America for en
couragement mid aid. Hut tho Washing
ton (iovermncnt stood aloof. To the sur
prise, consternation und disgust, first of
thq Convention, then of tho Directory It
resolved to preserve u strict neutrality and,
as it was obliged In such bustling limes,
to defend its Infant commcrco against tho
friendly liberties sought to ha practiced
by French ships os well us tho now more
hostile raids of those which Hew the
Kugllsh Rug. This determination onco
known tho French searchers ceased to bo
filendly and lu liKl French cruisers
began to pounce upon American vessels
anil carry them Into French isirts.
Tho last link was broken lu li'.H. I'res
ldcnt Washington sent an embassy to
London who, alter long negotiation, en
tered into a compact with tho lluglish
(jovirunient by tho terms of -which nil tho
rights and pilvilegcs granted to French
ships in American waters lu the treaty of
177Swero transferred to Ihigland. l.ng
lam! us tlio solo return for this agreed for
the future to let American merchandise
alone. This convention, known as the
Jay treaty of 1701, was notimiido public,
and tho French Directory lived in igtior
iineuof Rs cMstciico for iiiuny months.
When they learned tholrtiththey resolved
to strike mid spjro not. French com
miuulers were given 11 sjieeial direction
concerning Amorlenn oscls, and every
merchant ship llyiiigthollagof tho young
republic was pursued, captured, brought
to portj'conllscatcd nnd sold. The-so dep
reciations, continued for seven years up to
and including the year lfiOi), nio thn foun
dation for what Inn a been known toevcry
Congress since IcU! nstho French spolia
tion claims. During tho wholo period of
their occurrence tho United Status was at
peace with France, Unglaml and all the
The Washington Government protested
against these outrages uiim Its cltUcns
nnd demanded redress and damages. Ne
gotiations begun with tlio Directory were
continued without success until Iho acces
sion of Naoleou as, l'irst Consul, They
w ero then renewed on anew und Improved
basis, Tho United States Government for
tho shlpownurs claimed compensation
for tho injury dono American commcrco
ciiuui in amount to tne losses stistaineu.
The French Government admitted its lia
bility, but set up as an ufisct tho wanton
violation and final repudiation by the
American Government of tho valuablo
and oxcluslyo rights nnd privileges
grunted to France in tho treaty of 177S.
The Fteiuh Ministers wero willing to
concede that for outrage committed on
American vessels in time of peace Franco
owed reparation nnd restitution to the
American shipowners as American clti
7cns, but they Insisted that tho debt thus
duo was more than balanced by the failuro
of Iho United Slutes us a nation to live up
to the terms of the treaty of 1778 during
0,1111 after thu war of tlio Revolution; and
by Its transfer to Knghind In tlm Jay
treaty of nil tho concessions to Franco
which tho treaty of 177S contained. Tho
Amcrlcun Commissioners could not deny
this counter claliniindthollrst convention,
signed September TO, IsuO, contained
merely provisions for responsibility for
further depredations, leaving tho conllict
lug claims oi tho two countries, one
against the other, n matter for future ne
This last stipulation (contained in
Article 11, of the liealyi was stiicken
out by tho United States Senate, who
I litis gave birth to tho suggestion ot
settling olT 0110 claim against (lie other,
'Ibis suggestion was adopted forthwith by
tho French Government, and on tlio Slst
of July, 1801, ratifications of tho now
treaty wero exchanged, with 11 proviso
that iho expunging of tho second article
should bo considered it renunciation by
American citizens of all Individual
claims against Frame, and by Franco ot
all national claim against tlio United
States. The United States thus settled a
national debt due Franco by tlio relin
quishment of France's debt fo our own
citizens, and, in so doing, assumed that
I debt and became responsible tor Its pay-
I Of tho truth nnd liistiee of thU iirnnnst-
lion, based oil n provision of tho Consti
tution that private properly shall not be
put to public uses, there Is so little doubt
that from tlio tlmo of the treaty of 1801
scarcely nn American tlnlcsniau has de
nied the liability of the Government in
these celebrated claims. Marshall, Adams
Pickering, Webster, Clay, Livingston,
Fvcrclt, Clayton. Sumner, Fish, Ibyard,
lllidne and Harrison have alt been of one
opinion, nnd tlio rerord of their olllclal
iiltcramcs In court, in the Department of
Slate and in nnd out of Congrcs makes a
most interesting contribution to the
hWory of the case.
The mailer was first bronched In Con
gress in lbOl', mid has continued there
ever since. In the Interval lltty-ono re
ports hnve been mode by various commit
tees of the Scnnto and House, nil of them,
with three exceptions, in which no de
cided position was taken favoring the im
mediate tmyment of tho claimants. On
May a), 18SI, tho President laid beforo the
Senate, for the first time, tho full corre
spondence between Imnco and America
with reference to the claims. Since Hint
date no report lias been mado to cither
Housoof Congress which was not favor
able and well nigh unanimous.
Tho position of tho Government In the
matter of tho settlement of these claims
lias been for the lost half century that of
n debtor, whoso obligation was so old that
ho could n fiord lo regard his dishonesty
as something hallowed by years. Duo
Houscu of Congress after another has
passed measures of settlement, but tho
two have r.trclv agreed at any one llmo,
and when they have, unexpected opposi
tion has devcloiied at the White House.
It was not until January, 1B83, Hint Con
gress pnsscd and I'resldcnt Arthur signed
iv bill which was Intended to, and was
supposed did settle tho matter onco and
for all. Tills act sent the claimants to
the Court of Claims, nnd authorized that
court to consider tlio wholo subject nnd
report Its' conclusions to Congress directs
On tho 17th of May, 18 tills court
rendered Its decision, In which It ad
judged the claims to bo just and binding
on the Government.
Congress has not yet appealed from this
decision of tho tribunal of Its own selec
tion, nnd it probably will Hot; but It has
taken its tlmo lu carrying out tho plain
obligation Imiiosoil upon It of appropriat
ing the money theCourtnf Claims has

It is a significant fuel that tlio Shipping
Subsidy bill might lime passed the llou-o
had Speaker Heed been le-s CarMi nnd

a number of Republican members went
to lilm and proposed that he have the
committee accept an amendment limiting
Iho subsidies lu ships pllug between the
United States unci countries with which
w 0 have reciprocity treaties.
These gentlemen insisted that tlio hill,
as It btood, was in tliointerc-t alone of n
number of wealthy shli-owuers, who
would maintain lines only as long as tho
subsidies lusted; that such Hues w'ould
not build up trade or commcrco or open
tlic market to a dollar's worth of Ameri
can products. What was wanted, theso
gentlemen said, was Increased markets.
They wero Republicans and most of them
would support the bill as 11 party measure,
but senile of them would not. Amended
as they proposed, all would voto for It, as
well ns some Democrats, and it would go
through with a rush,
