Excerpt from Essays on Some Disputed Questions in Modern: International Law Expedition of 1882, refers in eulogistic terms to the ably planned and well executed operations whereby our fleet seized the Suez Canal.

NO doubt the gallant Commander is right, so far as physical force is concerned; but, with regard to the legal aspect Of the case, I have contended that all the states interested in the canal must concur in its neutralization, before the status of neutrality can be conferred upon it. Here again my view receives con firmation from current authority; for I see in the news papers that the International Peace and Arbitration Conference, assembled at Berne early in the present month, resolved that a guarantee Of all the maritime powers was necessary in order to effect the neutralization of interoceanic canals.
