REPORT AND COMMENTARY BY JAMES BROWN SCOTT
Secretary of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Technical Delegate of the United States to the Second Hague Conference, 1907 Technical Delegate of the United States to the conference at Paris, 1919
The usual remedies between nations, war and diplomacy precluded by the federal union [of the United States], it is necessary that a judicial remedy should supply their place. The Supreme Court of the Federation dispenses international law, and is the first great example of what is now one of the most prominent wants of civilized society, a real International Tribunal. -- John Stuart Mill, Considerations on Representative Government ( 1861), pages 305-6.
