Such cases, therefore, if thev occur, show no abandonment of the duty of neutrality. The Government of the United States has pot considered it as sufficient to confine the duties of neutrality nnd non-interference to the case of Governments whose territories lie adjacent to each other. The application of the principle may he more necessary in rich case, but the principle itself they re gard a being the same, it those territories be divided by half the globe.
