IY BEHHIXGTS SEA.
The full text of President Harrison's
proclamation, as published in TnE
Mormko Astoriak of March 23th, re
garding American claims in Bearing's
sea, recalls the matter and begs the
question. The matter of dominion in
northwestern Pacific waters should be
settled, and nothing is ever settled un
til it is settled right.
If the sea is incapable of dominion,
it matters not that Kussia was the first
civilized power to hold the shores of
Behring sea. Eights incapable of be
ing acquired can not be transferred. If
Behring sea had been what it was not,
a gulf entirely inclosed by Itussiau ter
ritory, with an entrance which could
have been defended from the shores, its
status as a closed sea could possibly
have been transferred to the United
States, although its shores after
such transfer would be held
by different nations. Butt on the
north, Behring sea is connected
with the Arctic ocean by Behring
strait, which is thirty-six miles wide,
and through which commerce has been
carried on by the United States for
half a century. On the south there
art flip inTTnTriprfllVlfl nrmsns llirniirrlt

width to Behring steait. Between
these islands and the Commander
group, on the shores of Asia, there is a
gap of water where half the navies of
the world might ride abreast, and be
out of sight of land and of each other.
That the seal fisheries are in danger
of destruction by numerous maraud
ers, reckless of the future, is no justi
fication for the revival of the claim of
mare clausum. That it is the duty
of the government to do all in its
power to prevent the indiscriminate
destruction of the fur seals is ad
mitted; but this should be done by
in ternational arrangement The prop
osition seems to have met with the
general approval of the nations most
interested, and it is to be hoped that
it will be persisted in until Behring
sea is patroled by a police of the
In order to justify the seizure of the
Black Diamond, the United States
government must advocate rules of in
ternational law inconsistent with those
urged in connection with the north
eastern fishery dispute, and opposed to
the position assumed by it in every
case which has arisen in the last hun
dred years. On the east shore it is
justly and honestly urging a liberal
and enlightened policy in consonance
with the spirit of the asre. It can not
afford to support an illiberal policy of
restriction on the northwest shore.
Our difficulties with Canada should
be treated as a whole, and in a liberal
and enlightened spirit. The com
mercial and personal relations between
the two countries are too intimate,
their present and future interests are
too closely entwined, to admit of a
narrow and intolerant policy. Ques
tions of commercial policy and inter
est should not be permitted to blind a
people to those principles of univer
sal right and justice which are acqui
esced in by all civilized nations, sim
ply because they are right Commer
cial relations, tariffs, and re
ciprocity treaties are for states
mem, to be disposed of as
the present interests of the whole
country dictate. Questions of interna
tional law should be for jurists and
courts, and selfish interests should not
enter into their decision. The failure
to appreciate this distinction is one of
the causes of these dangerous conten
tions growing out of the conflicting
views of fishery rights. If these ques
tions of law were once solved, negotia
tions could proceed with some pros
pect of a reasonably satisfactory issue.
But so long as the negotiators start
with directly contrary views of the
aw of the case, there is no chance
of an issue which one party will
not consider an absolute surrender.
It would be an easy matter for the
United States and Great Britain to
agree upon a case in which the issues
otlaw involved in the northeastern
and northwestern fishery disputes
could be stated. It is reasonable to
suppose that the nations which could
submit to arbitration such burning
questions as the Alabama claims and
the fishery trouble in 1871 could agree
to submit these purely legal questions
to an international tribunal, composed
of three or five of the great judges of
the world; for instance, the chief
justice of the United States, the lord
chief justice of England, and a third,
equally eminent and learned. The
decision of such a tribunal, pro
nounced after a full hearing, would be
received with respect and acqui
escence. "With these questions settled,
there would be something tangible,
some point of departure for negoti
ations. It is not to the credit of the
two great English-speaking nations
of the world, that these irritating dis
putes have extended over almost the
entire history of the United States.
Many questions of greater or less im
portence have been disposed of, but
these fishery disputes still remain as
fruitful sources of irritation nnd bitterness.
