It was nego

The negotiations were recently conv-

behind a proJiTt to revive the old
i g.i.i Canal plans; and construct
an Interoceanlc highway to compete
with the Panama Canal built by the
I'nlted States.
The convention with NIcarugua, If It
lecelves the ratification of the Senate,
will forever close the door to any other
nation or prlvute Interest contemplating
canal ity me .ic:aragonn inuie.
This
Is the chief purpose which the new

, effect the sharjtest kind of notice to the.
lest of the world that the United States
intend to maintain a monopoly on In
teroceanlc canals in the Western Hemi
sphere. While reports that foreign Interests
were actually contemplating the con
struction of a canal via the Nicaragua
route are. never taken very seriously
by Americans they were not without
effect in Central America.
These reports received consid
erable credence In the Central American
republics and served as the basis for
many schemes by which It was thought
to advance th interests of some Cen
tral American State. They tended to
creai- the Instability of Central Amer
lean political situations nnd altogether
were regarded as having a harmful
effect.
It was thought advisable from n prac

for the construction of a canal by the
Nicaragua!! route to the exclusive en
joyment of the Cnlted States. The tie

time it will lie found advisable und

, a canal for light draught vessels only
The old plans for the canal by way of
Nicaragua called for the utilization of
Lake Nicaragua and several rivers lying
on either side of that lake. Compara
tively little excavation would be neces
sary tn build by this route a canal for
light draught vessels. The task, If the
canal were to he a shallow one. would
be very simple as compared to the con
struction on the Panama Canal. It is
calculated that the saving of distance
over the Panama route would be well
worth while, especially If the commerce
of Central America Increases as rapidly
as It should with the growing develop
ments of those countries.
The Cnlted States Is already bound
by treaty with Nicaragua to follow a
specified route In case It evrr builds a
canal across Nicaragua. In the protocol
of 1500 the Cnlted States agreed with
Nicaragua that the Atlantic terminal
should be near San Juan del Norte,
