Decision of
the Tribunal,
8th August
1905.
568
not, in the case of a single one of the 26 boat-proprietors mentioned in
the revised list which accompanied their counter-Case, attempt to estab-
Iish by evidence a close connection with any French Colony. Arg-uments
were adduced on both sides which the Tribunal deemed to be irrelevant
fromthe judicial point of view; such we the British allegation that
the slave trade was carried on freely under cover of French fla^s
granted in the manner complained of, and the French assertion that the
Declaration of 1862 had been violated by Great Britain herself on
various occasions.
i he Tribunal found that the situation was governed in the main by the
Brussels Act of 1S90, after its ratification in January 1892 by the French
Government; and that the faculty of a European State to create proteges
m Oman must be determined by the analogous case of Muhammadan
principalities m the west which had agreements with Christian powers on
that subject. By the award of the Tribunal it was accordingly decided
with reference to the legitimacy of the French pretentions
That before the 2nd of January 1892 France was entitled to authorise
vessels belonging to subjects of His Highness the Sultan of
Masqat to fly the French flag, only bound by her own legislation
and administrative rules;
That owners of native vessels, who before 1892 had been authorised
by France to fly the French flag should retain this authorisation
as long as it was renewed by France to the grantee ; and
Ihat after the fed of January 1892 France was not entitled toauthor-
ise vessels belonging to subjects of His Highness the Sultan of
Masqat to fly the French flag, except on condition that their
owners or fltters-out had established or should establish that they
had been considered and treated by France as her proteges before
the year 1863:—
