the principle that war is conducted on the basis of State operating against State is sound, with the sole exception of such exigencies as may arise in the local conduct of a war upon hostile territory which

but then only to such an extent as such exigencies locally require.

War, speaking generally, may be conducted on three bases : (1) ComThe following paper was read at the recent Swansea meeting by Mr. munity against community, individual striving against individual; (2) H. G. CAMPION, F.R.G S. (London).

The study of international law poseesses a fascination exclusively of the one Power operating against the exclusive naval and to which many lawyers have succumbed, and in this particular instance, military forces of the other. In its origin war was conducted under the standing as we do upon this Western soil replete with its maritime first head with indescribable horrors, being literally a war of exterminaassociations, its importance is brought home to our minds with a force tion, ruthless destruction, and confiscation of private property.

It is also well-nigh impossible to deal but antiquity, and being one of the oldest customs of the sea. The first in the most euperficial manner with the mass of authority and expressions authoritative recorded recognition of the right of maritime capture, apart of opinion existing upon the subject. International law mainly consists from the lex non scripta, is to be found in the " Book of the Consulate," in certain rules of conduct which modern civilized and independent the earliest extant edition of which was printed in Barcelona in 1494, and States regard as being binding on them in their dealings with one consists of : (1) A code of procedure issued by the Kings of Aragon for another. Two principal views may be held as to the nature and origin of the guidance of the courts of the consulate of the sea ; (2) a collection of these rules. They may be considered to be an imperfect attempt to give ancient customs of war. By the rules established by this code a effect to an absolute right which is assumed to exist or to be capable of belligerent was enabled to seize the property of his enemy wherbeing discovered, or they may be looked upon simply as a reflection of ever be found it, but he was prohibited from robbing his friend. the moral development and the external life of the particular nations while, therefore, an enemy's ship was subjected to confiscation, its which recognize them. The doctrine that the regulation of war does not neutral cargo remained free, and it was even provided that the owners of affect individuals, except in so far as they contribute to the prosecution the cargo should be permitted to purchase the ship from the captain at a of hostilities, starts with the admitted fact that international law is con- fair price in order to avoid the loss attendant upon being carried into cerned chiefly with the relations of States, the individual so far as he is his ports. An early usage to the like effect probably existed in the affected at all being generally affected only through the State. But northern seas, for the Hollanders, during the war with Lubeck, and other individuals occupy a double position. In one respect they are private Hanse-towns, in 1438, crdained that goods belonging to neutrals in an persons with individual rights of person and property apart from the enemy's ship should not be made_prize, and it is said that until the State, and in the other they are members of the state from whom it middle of the sixteenth century France followed a like rule.

The two aspects establish a substantial distinction, to which carriers, changed this rule to one by which the character of the ship alone come writers give effect by supposing an individual to be an enemy only was regarded. France, by the Royal Declaration of 1650, granted the whilst actively evgaged in the conduct of hostilities, and others by freedom of neutral goods to enemy's ships, but she conc led & series of regarding him as such to the extent only that he is in the service of his treaties from 1659 onwards in which the older custom was embodied. State and assists in the maintenance of hostilities. Both consider that in However, she formally re-enacted the confiscation of neutral goods by all matters outside these lines he is a stranger to the war in person and the Ordonnance of 1681. Generally speaking, the whole question was one property. Again, it is contended that individuals, though not actively of policy, and was dealt with by each nation as best coincided with its own engaged in the prosecution of hostilities, assist by the contributions they peculiar maritime requirements on the subject for the time being. In make through the medium of taxation in supplying the State of which the last century England maintained the old rule that goods of neutrals they constitute members with the funds necessary for the prosecution of were free, but France held to her old opinion, which subsequently the war, and as such are indirectly actively hostile, and that to admit the received the adhesion of Spain. In the present century the confiscation general principle that war should be conducted solely on the basis of one of neutral property reappears in the treaties of France and the United State operating against another would abrogate the well-established States, set off, as usual, against the freedom of enemy's goods principle that on entering an enemy's territory an invader replaces the in neutral veseels ; but the United_States admitted in principle civil government by military control, and may make any changes which that neutral goods should be free. Thus, while England and the are necessary to secure his safety and success. The measure of violence United States were, apart from treaties, committed to the principle which is permitted in war is that which is required to put stress on the that the property of neutrals in course of transport by a belligerent enemy and reduce him to terms. International law as applied to war is free, and the lesser maritime nations were by self-interest compelled to consists of customary rules by which the maximum of violence which can adopt the same doctrine, France and Spain stood alone in maintaining be regarded as necessary at a given time is determined. These rules, that its confiscation was permitted by accept ad usage. When, therefore, though sufficiently ascertained at any one moment to afford a test of the France, at England's request, abandoned her assertion in 1854, Spain conduct of a State, have been, and still are, changing under the double alone adhered to it in principle; and though neither America nor Spain influence of the growth of humane feeling and the self-interests of belli: signed the Declaration of Paris, the outcome of the Hispano-American gerents. Sovereign States are independent entities, subject to no control war has been to secure no permanent expression of opinion from either and owning no superior, and are therefore only bound by these rules and belligerent. Before proceeding to discuss the provisions of the Declaration obligations of which they approve. If States therefore are to be subject of Paris it is necessary that the vexed question of “Contraband of War" to anything which can strictly or analogically be called law they must and the system of " Privateering." should be considered. The former accept a body of rules by general consent as an arbitrary code irrespective term (Low Lat. contrabannium) arising from the words merces banno interdicta of its origin, or elee they must be agreed as to the general principles by was, according to Ducange, originally applied to a prohibited domestic which they will be governed. No formal code has been adopted by the trade in time of peace, such as salt. The expression was first used by us body of civilized States, and scarcely any principles have been laid down to denote a prohibited neutral trade with a belligerent in the Treaty of by common consent. The evidence of the existence of such principles Southampton (September 17th, 1625), between Charles I. and the States must, therefore, be sought in national acts, in other words, in such inter- General of Holland. Originally the utmost diversity of views prevailed as national usage as can be looked upon as authoritative. They come under to its interpretation, and it is to be feared that no two authorities could two great divisions—namely, (1) unilateral acts; and (2) treaties and other compile a list of contraband and non-contraband of war without a very compacts. The former find their sanction in decisions of competent wide divergence of opinion.

As a the third res ancipitis usus, the state of the war and the circumstances further safeguard, a privateer was liable to visit by public vessels of war, attending the contest must be considered. If the seizure is necessary for and neutral ships of war were permitted to verify the lawfulness of the defence, the necessity confers the right of arresting the goods. The commission it sailed under by requiring its production. For the future subject from its broad standpoint is very ancient, it being considered by privateers can only be employed by signatories to the Declaration of many authorities, including Vattel and Bynkerschoek, to be referred to in Paris during war with countries other than signatories or by nonthe Jus Gentium of Justinian, whilst Marcian prohibits the sale to signatories. Non-commissioned ships have the right to resist when “ Barbari” of oil, wine, arms, and iron. So also the Decretals of Gregory summoned to surrender, and in these circumstances acquire the rights (v. 6-12) and the Bull" In Coena Domini” denounce excommunication of belligerents. Some writers assert that non-commissioned ships have against all who should supply the Saracens with arms. Early modern the right of attack, but the weight of practice and legal authority is writers assume that, apart from treaties, a belligerent has a right against this. Privateering was abandoned because it was thought that indefinitely to vary the list of articles constituting munitions of war, and no armaments maintained at private expense with the object of private it is clear that the question of immediate subserviency must vary with the gain, and often, necessarily, for long periods together operating beyond character of the hostilities, the resources of the combatants, and the actual the reach of the naval forces of the State to which they were accredited, location of the conflict. In 1589 Elizabeth successfully justified the could be kept under proper control. The general sea law down to 1856 capture of a fleet of vessels belonging to the Hanse Confederation and may be said to have been that neutral vessels and neutral goods were to be carrying corn and naval munitions to Spain. In the seventeenth century restored to their owners without compensation for loss or inconvenience opinions varied to such a degree with the political situation that it is attending capture, but doctrines inconsistent with this rule met with the difficult to extract from any contemporary treaties the prevailing custom sanction of two nations: (1) The French doctrine of hostile infection, even of one nation. In 1674 Sir Leoline Jenkins told Charles II, that whereby neutral property on hostile vessels and enemies' property on pothing ought to be deemed contraband “but what is directly and neutral ships became good prize; and (2) the Dutch rule, by which the immediately subservient to the use of war except it be in the character of the ship alone was regarded. In this relation it is interest. case of besieged places," which raises the question of blockade. ing to note that boats engaged in coast fishing, even when owned by Powerful neutrals, dissatisfied with the decision of a captor's prize, might belligerents, were exempted from seizure. In establishing this rule issue letters of reprisal. This was done by England when a cargo of France was mainly instrumental for its introduction, though the principle tobacco bound for Holland was condemned in Spaid, on the ground that was recognized and acted upon by the United States of America by its use 'the consumption of victuals might bé prolonged.” It is in the Mexican War. Hostile vessels which, at the outbreak apprehend that means other than reprisals would be resorted to by modern of war,

In the nineteenth century fourteen treaties without having issued from an enemy's or other foreign port, have (all with one exception contracted with the United States) mention commenced loading at that time, are occasionally exempted from capture munitions of war and horses, and treat provisions, money, metals, ships, during a specific period. At the beginning of the Crimean War an Order and articles of naval construction as innocent. The doctrine of the in Council" directed that “any Russian merchant vessel which, prior to English Courts at the commencement of the present century with respect the date of this order, shall have sailed from any foreign port bound for to provisions was that generally they were not contraband, but might any port or place in her Majesty's dominions, shall be permitted to enter become so in circumstances arising out of the particular situation of the such port or place and to discharge her cargo and to depart forthwith war or the conditions of the parties engaged in it. This would appear, without molestation, and any such vessel if met at sea by any of her speaking generally, to be the rule with reference to all articles under the Majesty's ships shall be permitted to continue her voyage to any port not second head, for it is obvious that no rule or list of articles entitled to blockaded.” France, in 1870, gave a like indulgence, and German immunity can be compiled which will operate equably under all vessels, which had begun to leave upon the date of the declaration of war, circumstances and conditions, and it is idle to ask nations to accept rules were permitted to enter French ports without limit of time and to reissue - which may not coincide with belligerent exigencies. The United States in with a safe conduct to a German port. In 1877, also, Turkish vessels the Civil War went so far as to regard cotton as contraband, upon the were allowed to remain in Russian ports until they had taken in cargo, specious argument that "cotton was useful as collateral security for loans and to issue freely afterwards. It is worthy of attention that somewhat negotiated by the Confederate States for cash to meet current expenses or inconsistently this privilege does not extend to ships of belligerents bound to purchase arms or munitions of war.” It need hardly be said to neutral ports. Shipwrecked vessels, vessels driven to take refuge ia tbat, per sequitur, money was invariably regarded as contraband. any enemy'& port by stress of weather or want of provisions, are stated Among Continental jurists two currents of opinion are visible. Some to be exempt from seizure, but the law is doubtful. In 1799 a Prussian writers endeavour to reduce the list of contraband within the narrowest vessel called The Diana, which had taken refuge in Dunkirk, was dimensions, notwithstanding the increased variety of material which is restored by the French Courts, but a French Ordonnance, in the applicable more or less immediately to the purposes of war. Others, year 1800, prescribed a contrary rule, and in the same year the recognizing the difficulty of making a fixed and restricted list of articles precedent established by the case of The Diana was reversed, and and the improbability that assent to any such list would be generally a vessel entering a French port under similar circumstances was given, or, if given, would be adhered to in circumstances of temptation, condemned. It is of interest to note as evidence of the extent retain the principle of variability, while in most cases giving evidence of to which privateering prevailed, that between the months of July, a healthy wish to confine its effect within reasonable limits.
