PREFACE.

The conference of officers at the Naval War College during the past summer having been largely occupied with the consideration of special subjects referred to it by the Navy Department, much less time than usual was available for the work in international law, with the result that the situations considered were fewer in number, and the time devoted to their discussion less, than usual.

The situations considered presented cases demanding a close study of the conventions of the Second Hague Peace Conference for their proper solution. The conventions mentioned will be found in the appendix.

Prof. George Grafton Wilson, of Brown University, the War College lecturer on international law, rendered valued assistance in framing the situations, and in their subsequent discussion.

The president of the college invites suggestions from officers of the service as to cases under the recent Hague conventions.

JNO. P. MERRELL,
Rear-Admiral, U. S. Navy,

President. U.S. NAVAL WAR COLLEGE,

Newport, R. I., November 19, 1908.
