THE French newspapers are puzzled over the reported stoppage of a French ship by a British cruiser on the West Coast ef Africa. They ask whether Delagoa Bay is blockaded; the answar to which question is that there is no right to blockadea neutral port. We (the Law Journal) suppose that the Admiralty have reconsidered the pedantic rule laid down in their Manual of Prize Law" that contra- band goods can only be goods going to a port of the enemy, and that they are act.ng on the sensible rule that goods of a contraband nature, intended for the use of tile enemy, can be seized on the high sea though their immediate destination be » neutral port. This was the rule followed by the American Prize Courts in the Civil War. The right to seize contraband goods carries with it the right to stop and search neutral vessels, and this is probably the explanation of the action of the British warship, which swms to us Quite justifiable.
