"Gvic Rig-to Have Bea IafriBied
Before Concrete Violation,-"
Secretary of State Knox yesterday ft-
ernoon made public the note handed to
him Friday by James Bryce, the British
Ambassador, replying to the Knox note
of last month In regard to the Panama
Canal tolls dispute.
The British note rejects every sugges
tion, and all the main points of argu
ment made by Secretary Knox in his
note to Sir Edward Grey, of January 17
last, ard reiterates the request of the
British government that the entire con
troversy, as far as the Interpretation of
the Hay-Pauncefote treaty Is concerned,
be referred to arbitration, unless the
United States government sees fit to re
peal the sections of the Panama Canal
act to which Great Britain objects.
Ambassador Brsce contends. In answer
to Mr. Knox's argument, that the Brit
ish have not yet any discrimination at
the canal to complain of, that It is un
necessary for the government, which
holds that Its civic rights have been In
fringed, to wait for a concrete instance
for a violation of those rights before pro
testing. The Ambassador holds that
Great Britain is right in protesting be
fore tolls have actually been levied upon
British vessels from which American
vessels have been exempted by the canal
The British note also rejects the states.
ment of Mr. Knox that the British gov
ernment has no .ground for complaint
against the canal tolls. Inasmuch as the
President has fixed those tolls on a basis
arrived at by assuming that American
ships were to pay tolls. The case Is not
altered, the Ambassador contends, mere
ly because of the method b" which the
President exercised the right given him
by Congress to discriminate against
British ships in the fixing of the tolls.
I'll to New Administration.
Secretary Knox's suggestion that tf
the British government Insists upon arbi
tration, ratification of the arbitration
treaties which failed In the Urited States
be exchanged, or that a special conven
tion be signed so as to provide for a pre
liminary Investigation of the facts in
the case by a Joint commission, is re
jected bs" the British government. Am
bassador Brsce says In his note that the
Panama Canal dispute is held by toe
British government to come under the
existing arbitration treats of 190S. The
Ambassador also urges that the matter
be hastened to a settlement before th
canal opens, and asks that the provi
sions of the arbitration treaties of 1903
be put in force promptly so as to leave
no possibility of friction after the open
ing of the canaL
Secretary Knox, of course, will make
no attempt to reply to the Brsce note,
and it will be left for his successor un
der the Wilson administration to take
up the discussion with Great Britain.
