Excerpt: ...the situation created at Muscat by the Declaration of.1S62, and the present controversy has arisen out of the action of France in a manner inconsistent with the obligations with regard to Muscat imposed upon her by that Declaration. It quite true that disputes have arisen with.respect to the rights of France in Zanzibar, CONCLUSION. rerewh Case, p. 49. Frewh Case, p. 50. British Case, p. 6. somewhat similar to those submitted to the Tribunal in respect to Muscat, and that France has made claims there with regard to the protection of Zanzibari and other Arabs and their vessels, which were rejected as inadmissible by Great Britain; but these disputes have been settled by an arrangement made the 13th May, 190 t, which limits French persons who are originaires of countries under French protection or are bond fide in French service. If France were prepared to make a similar arrangement as to Oman, she would then be limiting her protection within the terms of the Treaty of the 17th November,, and abandoning her present ill-founded claim to protect 01.iginai1 es of Oman who are not bond jide in French service. In conclusion, His Majesty's Government submit with confidence to the Tribunal that nothing in the French Case displaces the statements or contentions contained in the British Case, and that upon consideration of the statements and contentions of both Parties to the arbitration it is clearly proved that the French practice of franeisation of Omani dhows exists, that its effect is seriously to impair the authority of the Sultan over his own subjects in his own dominions, and that his well-founded protests have been disregarded and his independence threatened by persistence in a practice which has no warrant either more
