DECIDE AGAINST CLAIMANTS
Spanish Treaty Claims Commissioners
Settle Maine Yiotimi' Cases.
SPAIN NOT RESPONSIBLE TO INDIVIDUALS
Oaa Member Dissents, Holding; that
Sailors Retain Geaeral Rlahte
aad Powers af
WASHINGTON, March 3. Th Spanish
treaty clalma commission today handed
dowa a decision against the claimants for
death and injuries received by officers aad
seamen ta the wreck of the battleship
Maine la Havana harbor.
The commission holds that "Individual
claima of cltl.ena of one nation may arise
against another nation for redress ot In
juries to, person, or property which auch
cktlsene may have sustained from such gov
ernment or any of Its agent. But such
Individual clalma do not rise In favor of
tha officer, or men ot a ship of war who
receive. In the line of duty, Injuries to
their persons for which a . foreign govern
ment la responsible. The claim against ths
foreign government is wholly national and
all Injuries to auch officers and seamen are
merged In the national Injury, and they
can look only to their own government for
such remuneration a It may chooe to give
No Claim Against Spain.
"A seaman injured by the explosion which
destroyed the battleship Maine In the har
bor of Havana. Cuba, on February 16, 1893,
had ao Individual claim against Spain, even
if that government wa responsible to th
United Statea for the explosion, and there
fore auch a seaman la not entitled to an
award In hla favor from the Spanish treaty
clalma commission organized by ths act ot
congress, March 1, 1901, to adjudicate all
Individual clalma of citizens of th United
Statea against Spain, which th United
State released to 6paln and agreed to pay
by treaty of peace of December, 1898."
The clalma o far filed with th commj- 1
slon affected by this decision amount to
about $2,500,000, which probably would be
Increased to $5,000,000 had th decision been
favorable to the claimants.
Commissioner Chamber filed a dissenting
opinion. The commissioner lsld down the
A sailor neither forfeits nor wslves sny
