Washington, July 16. Despite
Great Britain's debt of $4,500,
000,000 to this country, payment
of $32,688,352 has been made by
the American government min
istry of shipping in settlement
of a claim against the war de
partment, treasury officials said
today. The payment was made
officials added, pursuant to an
opinion by ' Attorney General
Dougherty. , ,
The British claim was. for
transportation services arising
out of the war with Germany
and the payment, it was ex
plained, constitutes a final set
tlemtnt between, the United
States and England, exercises a
broad discretion "in determining
what claims it will present
against other nations.
. Secretary Mellon asked Mr. Dough
erty for a ruling as to, whether the
act of March 3, 1875, which required,
the secretary to withhold payment of
any judgement against the United
States where the claimaint is in
debted to this country in any matter
applied to such a claim.
Must Pay Our Debts
Mr. Dougherty held the act did not
apply as it was not practice of sov
erien nations to prosecute their
claims a'gainst one another in the
courts and obtain judgements, but
adjust such matters through diplo
matic channels.
The Brtish claim was for what was
regarded during the war as current
expenses. Among the allies it was
said there was a general understand
ing that all current expenses would
be paid without awaiting the set
tlement of international debts.
