I)i H. Lammasch, an Austrian senator and professor o£ international
law in the University of Vienna, was nominated to the post of umpire
by His Majesty the King of Italy. The court thus constituted finally
assembled at the Hague on the 25th of July 1905, and further sittings
were held on the 1st, 'Znd and 8th of August, at the last of which the
award was announced.

suffice it to say that the reserved attitude of France obliged Great
Britain to assume the role of plaintiff, which she desired to avoid, and to
deEne the French position, which the French case had been formulated
with judicious vagueness in order to disguise. The British contentions
were in substance, (1) that, without the consent of the Sultan Oman,
subjects could not legitimately become the recipients of French flags an
papers unless under some treaty between the Sultan and the I rene
Government, and that no such treaty existed ; (2) that under Aitic e
XXXII of the Brussels Act of 1890 France was debarred from grant
ing flags and papers to Arabs unless they were either («) French citizens
or({) French proteges in consequence of being subjects of States under
French protection, and that the 'Omanis in question were neither o
these; (3) that the withdrawal of 'Omani subjects from the Su tan s
jurisdiction by the conferment upon them, in 0 Pl' 0 f 0 % t ° f 6
wishes, of French flags and papers was a violation o c
independence and therefore contrary to the Declaration of 1862, (4) that
the grant of the flags and papers, even if permissible, could not confer on
the holders or on persons connected with them immunity - ^e tern-
