HOW THE WAR CAME TO AMERICA (Second of a Series of Seven Articles on tlA Great War.) Our second great tradition in international relations has been our persistent effort to secure a stable* and equitable agrement of the nations upon such a maritime code as would assure to all the world a just freedom of the seas. This effort was bom 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 be indifferent to the way in which war was conducted at sea. In those early years of our national life, 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 dipper 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 ami the British Orders in Council at once affected the lives of our citizens intimately and disastrously. So it was in the case of the Barbary pirates. We had no 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 cr cr situ e, although die imagination of our people bas been engrossed in the immense labot of winning the West, our Department of Stale has never lost sight of the compt Ihng interest that we have upon the seas, and has constantly striven to gain the assent I of all nations to a maritime code which should be framed and enforced by a joint responsibility. Vatious watchwords have arisen in this long controversy. We have - urged    the inviolability of private property at sea, we have asked for a libel a1 fire list and a narrow definition of con-tiaband. But our main insistence has not been on any such details. One salient idea has guided out diplomacy. The law of tho sea must he founded not on might but on right and a common accord, upon a code binding all alike, .vim I.    can I     Smnc    , x , ulocs .     tuub . 1 ,„ , nd n °n anKC or scl acale In    Iho ] buckwheat    being planted    vet.

I I .1/1 at least an honest attempt to arrive at an nprerrnrnt on a complete international code of sea law, based upon mutual consent and not to be altered bv any belligerent in the heat of Hit conflict. But 1 he Declaration of London was not tatified 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 bv the other countries involved, (lur motives, 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.

COUNTY AGENT S REPORT . i The following is the report of j County Agent Kadonsky to the j State Preparedness Board; gthening of legal restiaint b\ theftrc 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 oui American meaning, until all who sail thereon have had a voice in framing sea laws. The just governance of the seas must test 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, we been strengthened by the support of many other countries. At times we have had the support of Great Britain. No one of our Secrctaiies of State has more clearly defined oui 'deal than has Viscount Grey. ic-cently British Secretary of State for Foreign Aff ait s, Noncof our statesmen lias ever gone so far as he in advocating limitation of the tights of belligerents on the sea.
