ed by tho oonstant petitions and
resolutions of largo meetings held
in all parts of America siuce the
conference has been sitting, said:
"I noliove avast majority of our

Third, between two American
powers, neither boing tho United

powor other than tho Unitod
States and a foreign power.
In ovory instanco, said Mr
