faint patg’n f tatnn, LEONARDTOWN, MD. THtJRSDAT MORNING, Ja. Bth, 1885. Politics.— Th political potisbogin ning to boil and our democratic frianda hare already commenced canvaeeing the merits of the different political as pirant*. The opinion leema to obtain that to the men who did the work in the last campaign is due a goodly share of the party honors. While they may not be applicants for nomi nations or honors, Messrs. Norris, Dawkins, Dyer, Key and other gen tlemen who spoke for the party, and the host who labored for ‘its success before election and at the polls, can not fail to be gratified at the kindly mentions they are daily receiving from their compatriots. We are glad to see this disposition to honor the work ers and regret that we cannot recol lect the names of all of them—both speakers and workers—and give them the publicity they deserve. The French Spoliation Claims.— The Senate of the United States a few days before its late adjournment for the Obristmas holidays took up and sn 1 passed a bill “to provide for the ascertainment of claims of American citizens for spoliations committed by the French prior to the 31st of July, 1801.” The bill authorizes the Court of Claims to examine these bills and subjects the decision of that Court to the subsequent action of Congress. Thinking a brief synopsis of these claims, with the Federal legislation connected with them, it might interest our people to read, some of whom, we have been informed, are pecuniarily concerned in their settlement, we shall now proceed with the subject, premis ing, that we are indebted to a New York ootemporary for the leading facts in the case. The claims in ques tion have been pending for mors than eighty years and it is three-score years sines all the evidence sustaining them was laid before Congress. Had not our Government undertaken to collect them, they would, doubtless, have been paid by France more than a half century ago to the fathers and grand father* of those to whom they have been bequeathed. Fully forty reports have been made upon them in Congress _ since;the year 1820, and not one was auvmTT*ifr'Cggresa after Congress, at one time the Senftte and at another ( the House, has passed the'needed re lief bill, but on the only two occasions when both branches concurred in pass ing it, the bill was vetoed. Thus it turns out that the French spoliation claims have remained to this day an example of the misfortune of the pri vate citizen who has his individual demands upon a foreign country mixed up with, and sacrificed to, the politi cal obligation* and demands of his own Government. It is well known that the claims in question are those of American shipowners and merchant#, whose vessels and cargoes wars wrong fully captured, detained, and in many instances confiscated during the clos ing years of the last century hy French cruisers acting under the Orders of the Directory, as the government of France was then called. Redress was duly demanded, but the reply of France cams in the shape of counter claims, arising out of the alleged violation of the United States of the treaties made by France with her about twenty years 1 before. In these treaties of 1778, ne gotiated by Franklin, the United States , had agreed to aid French privateer ing, to guarantee to Francs her poa- 1 sessions in America, and to grant cer- 1 • • " | tain other privileges, “in case of a < rupture between France and Eng land." When tUi* rupture eame, the etipulations were not kept, and, in deed, were considered, on this side of the ocean, net to be binding. Never theless, France considered them to be b nding, not only through the letter of the compact, but in common gratitude. In fact, so powerfully did she put the plea of treaty honor and international obligation that in 1801 a new conven tion was signed by which each coun try released the other from the obli gations assarted. That is, France gave the United States a release from her counter-claim based on the treaties of 1778, and in consideration thereof the United States relieved Fraace from the pecuniary damages due to Ameri can citizens. Thus it is clear that our Government took for public use cer tain unsettled individual claims which it bad undertaken to collect, and with them purchased iU own release from an alleged national liability. At all events, it bought with them an ami cable settlement with a people to whom it had been under great obligations and who had felt aggrieved at what h>d seemed nations! ingratitude. Our government, in short, being bound to turn over to the individual claim ants the proceeds ef the international t it was conducting, chose instead to apply them to its own benefit. Justice demands that it should re imburse those whose valuable right* it then disposed of. [OoMta’inoaT(D. the briery branch herald.
