C. Bnddaky, Prop.
J. C. SERRAO,
First, that "neither the Colombian
Executive nor an ord nary Congress
can constitutionally ratify a treaty
that involves n cession of territory
to a foreign Power;" second, that
"the canal will not be of as much
benefit to Colombia as those who
arc unfamiliar with th: situation
nsstime;" and third, that "Colom
bians firmly Believe that there are
other solutions to the problem,
which, besides being fair and legal,
would permanently satisfy both the
United States and Colombia."
In regard to the ratification of
the treaty, Mr. Perez informs us
that under the Colombian laws the
Panama Canal Company is consid
ered simply as a "juridical person,"
and has no further rights than those
granted to any Colombian citizen
It the United States Government
were in the place of the Panama
Canal Company and the transfer
euce of rights carried out, "would
the United States submit to be con
sidered merely a 'juridical person,'
with no more.rights than any other
Colombian citizen carrying on bus
iness in Colombian territory?" The
"Article 21, of the Salgar-Wy.se
contract (Colombian law 28 of the
year 1878), in full force today,
reads as follows: 'The concession
aires, or those who in the future
may succeed them in their rights,
may transfer those rights to any
other capitalists or financial corpor
ations: but they are expressly for
bidden to transfer them or mort
gage them, under any considera
tion, to any foreign nation or gov
ernment.' Nothine: could be more
explicit, and this legal disposition
in itself is enough to invalidate the
"In fixinc the status of the
builders of the canal, it may be
true that there are some difficulties,
but none of these are insuperable.
It is evident that for a powerful
Government to be placed in the
postion of a mere 'juridical person,'
tinder the laws of a week and un
stable so-called republic, is rather
awkward, and has no precedent.
On the other hand, neither the
Colombian Executive nor even the
Colombian Congress has the power
to make a cession of territory be
longing to the Colombian Nation.
"Only a constitutional conven
tion, whose members should be ex
pressly elected by the people for
that purpose, would be empowered
to cede territory to another country;
but it may be safely stated that in
no nation of the world would it be
possible to find a set of men to as
sume such responsibility. The
proof of this is that, after the Colom
bian dictator has himself chosen his
own unconditional supporters as
trans-Isthmian railroad. All such
patronage is very valuable to the
Isthmus; and, being terminals, both
ports have naturally considerable
importance. Such will not be the
case wlien tlie canal is opcueu.
Steamers will go through as rapidly
as possible, the passengers dreading
the unhealthy climate. There will
be 110 loading and unloading of car
goes; the ports will no longer be
terminals nor perhaps even coaling
stations, and they will not have,
anything else to place on board b'tit
the scanty products of their own
"The only gain with regard to
trade and even that is problemat
ical might be for a strip of land
some three hundred miles long and
fifty miles wide, situated on the
Pacific coast. The productidns of
that region, entirely tropical and
chiefly consisting of chocolate, have
already good markets in Chile and
on the western coast of the United
States, and it remains to be demon
strated that the freight iatcs through
the canal would be low enough to
enable the chocolate planters of the
Colombian Pacific coast to compete
with the Vevezuelan product on the
Atlantic side. In any case, that
narrow Pacific region is the only
portion of Colombian territory that
could derive advantage from the
canal. Kvery country in the world
would be a gainer rather than Colombia."
In conclusion, Mr. Perez tells us
how the Colombians would like to
have the question settled. He says:
"What the Colombians would
like to do about the canal would be
to have their country hold a perma
nent interest in the enterprise as a
partner of the United States, deriv
ing an income that would benefit
not a few officials and one political
party, but'all the people for genera
tions to come. There is no reason
why a partnership of that nature
could not be successfully carried
out, iu the same way as apartner
ship between individuals. All de
tails could be deliberately and safely
settled between the two countries
to the entire satisfaction of both,
bearing in mind that a century in
the life of a nation counts 110 more
than one year in the life of a man,
and that the canal must be of vast
consequence for ages. The desire
to cut the canal open as rapidly as
possible is praiseworthy, but it is
more important to lay first the solid
foundations of the transaction and
establish the exact limitations of
the rights of those concerned, so as
to avoid all possible friction in the
future. ' '
It is of interest to note at this
time that, on July 2, Iuis Carlos
Rico, the Colombian Minister of
Foreign Affairs, presented the
canal treaty to the Senate with a
special message for the considera
tion of Congress. The House of
Representatives has appointed a
committee of nine to consider the
