HOW THE WAR CAME TO AMERICA Second of ii Series of Seven Articles on il/b Grcnt War.) Our second great tradition in international relations has been our persistent effort to secure a stable anil equitable agieement of the nations upon such a maritime code as would assure to all the world a just freedom of the seas. This effoit was born of our vital need. For although it was possible for the Republic to keep aloof from the nineteenth century disputes that rent the Continent of Europe, we could not he indifferent to the way in which war was condvicted at sea. In those early years of our national ife, when we were still but a few communities ranged along the Atlantic coast, we were a seafaring people. At the time when our frontiersmen had not reached the Mississippi, the fame of our dating clipper ships had spread to all the Seven Seas. So while we could watch the triumphant march and, the tragic countermarch of Napoleon's grand army with detached indifference, his Continental Blockade and the British Orders in Council at once affected the lives of our citizens intimately and disastrously. So it was in the case of the Bar-bary pirates. We had no interest in the land quarrels and civil wars of the Barbary States, but we fought them for obstructing the freedom of the seas. And in the decades ever since, although ihe imagination of our people has been engrossed in the immense labor of winning the West, our Department of State has never lost sight of the compelling interest that we have upon the seas, anil has constantly striven to gain the assent of all nations to a maritime cods which should be framed and enforced by a joint responsibility. Various watchwords have arisen in this long controversy. YYe have urged the inviolability of private properly at sea, we have asked for a liberal free list and a narrow definition of contraband. But our main insistence has not been on any such details. One salient idea has guided our diplomacy. The law of the sea must be founded not on might but on right-and a common accord, upon a code binding all alike, whab can not be changed or set aside by the will of any one nation. Our ideal has been not a weakening but astten-gthening of legal restraint by the (tee will and agreement of all. We have asked nothing for ourselves that we do not ask for the whole world. The seas will never be free, in our American meaning, until all who sail thereon have had a voice in framing sea laws. The just governance of the seas must rest on the consent of the governed. No other questions of international policy has found the great powers more divided. But in our insistence on this fundamental principle, wc been strengthened by the support of many other countries. At times we have had the support of Great Britain. No one of our Secretaries of State has more clearly defined our 'deal than has Visconnt Grey, recently British Secretary of State, for Foreign Affairs, Noncofourstal.es-men has ever gone so far as he in advocating limitation of the rights of belligerents on the sea. It was on his initiative that the international naval conference was summoned to London in 1909, and it was un-deYijis guidance that tire eminent international lawyers and diplomats and admirals who gathered there' drew up the Declaration of London, While there were in that Declaration sections that did not quite meet our approval and that wc shoul.l have liked to amend, the document was from onr viewpoint a tremenlous step in advance, For although, like any effort to concisely formulate the broad principles of equity, it did not I wholly succeed "in its put pose, it was1 at least an honest attempt to arrive at an agreement on a complete in-! ternational code of sea law, based upon mutual consent and not to be altered by any belligerent in the heat of the conflict. But the Declaration of London was not ratified by the British Parliament, for the point of view prevailing then in Fngland was that a power dependent almost wholly upon its navy for protection could not safely accept further limitations upon action at sea unless there were compensating limitations on land powers. And this latter concession Germany consistently ^refused to make, The conference therefore came to naught. And the London Declaration having been rejected by the strongest maritime power, its indorsement was postponed by the other countries involved. Our mo-lives, however, remained unchanged; and our Government persisted in its purpose to secure a general ratification either of this declaration or of some similar maritime code.
