While it l_ nnojueetlonahl) true
that rcmisslon of tolls to tho .-i.astwlse

Summing up the protest. it may be

opinlon of hls HiaJaatjPa government. in

wlse ahlpplng from paym.it ..t t.
passlng through tlie Panan.a Canal wtth
the statement that the President does BOt
fully appreclate the Brltlsh point of view
and has mleunderitood even the note oi
July 8.
The purpose of the T'uited Btatl
negotiating the Hey-Fouaeefete treaty
was to recover their freedom of rt.tlon
aad ohtain the rinht wh* h tbey bad flur*
t?ndered ln the Cltiyton-Bulwer tt-aty to
onstruct the canal themselvrs But this
complete liberty of action waa to bfl Unl- !
ited by the maintename of the oompleta -
principie of equal treatment far both
English and Unlted States ship'. The
word '?neu,.^alt_?tton?? m ibe preamble of
the Hay fbaineaiete treaty la aoi eoa*
flned to beiiiaerent operatlona bul mferfl

Article . piovidea.
Jolnt protection and eq.al treatment
are the only mattera alluded to. to whi h
that neutrallzatlon must refer. "lt tt'
talnly was not the intentlon el lh?
l'nlted Statea government.'' says SIr Bd?
ward Grey. "that any responsiMlity lor
the protection of the canal flbould attaeb
to them m the fufire. Neutralizau.n.
therefore, muat refer to the ayatem of
equal rlahta."
The note then gflClBTei that the altUB
tlon created by Ihfl eubetHut-00 ol lhe
Gay-Pauncfote treaty for tlie ClaytOB*
JBulwer treaty was identieal with that re
sultlng from the boundary flratefb treaty
of 1109 between Great Britain and the
Unlted States. whlch m brtet provided
that the boundary waters abould bfl fre<
and open to commerce, "applying equally
and without dlserimination to the in?
habitants, ships, vessels aud hoats of both
etuatriea . . ? hut aii such rulefl -nd
regulstions and all tolls charged shall
apply alike to the subjc Ifl or citlzens ef
the hlRh c.ontractSng parties. and they
ehall be plsced on terms of equallty In the
uae thereof."
American Prbteat Recalled.
lt Is al?o Baaflrfed that a similar. thoriRh
more restrlc.ti'd. provision appeared in the
treaty of Washington. and it ls recalled
"how strenuoualy the I'nited Htates p'o
IfitK), as a violation Ot flgual i
ac&inst Ihfl system which Canada had in?
troduced of a rebate of a large portion of
rhe tolls on certaln fralghtfl Ofl tl.e W< 1
lend Canal. and how ln the face of that
protest the system was abandoned."
Referrlng lo the thlrd artlel? of the
Hay-Pauncefote treaty, the note points
out that the flTBl of the guez ?'anal rules,
whleh the treaty adonts for the Panama
Caaal, is thv the watenray rrtiaU i>e rre<
and open to tiie vessels of <oinmer.< and
war of all nations, observlng the rule? on
terms of entlre equallty. k. thnt there
shall be no dlacrlmlnation against any
such nation.
It la said that the Presldent's statement
of the caae la wholly at variance with the
real provlsiona when he treate the words
"all nations" as excluding the mit-.j
Btatee becauae lt had pflflurtrafltfld the
canal on its own territory and tbflrebg B* ?
cj'ilred nn absolute right of ownershlp, In?

INCREASE
since March 1, 1912, in the
number of direct branch
offices of the Remington
Typewriter Company in the
United States.
The importance of this fact to
the typewriter user lies in the expansion and
development of Remington Service EtHciency.
The two factors of Remington Typewriter
Supremacy are Quality and Service. The one goes
with the sale; the other follows the sale. The one
is in the machine; the other is backoi the machine.
And both are essential to the permanent satisfaction
of the typewriter user.
The great expansion oi thr. Remington Sales Organization lus
edvanced our tervice facilities beyond any standard aftained or attain
ablr. ia the past. Remington Service was always supreme; it is now
incomparably supreme. It goes everywhere and it covers evtrything.
Whatever your need in the typewriter service line, whether nbbons,
carbons, inspectiom. ?djusfmrtiis, rentals or oprrators, the means to
supply that need are bound to be close at hand if your machine is
a monarch, a smith premier or. remington.
