Vs. One of the principal Vaturea of the discussions at this congress has been an effort to create among the delegates from Latin America a widespread ap proval of closer union and friendship.

In this connec tion he said : "Within recent years the United States has found no occasion with the excep tion of the Venezuelan boundary Inci dent to remind Europe that the Monroe Doctrine continues unaltered a na- tlonal policy ln this republic. The re publics of America are no longer chil dren ln the great family of nations.

"Recent events, or rather the realisa tion of the truth which comes from a great war ln Europe, compels us to consider the great shortcomings of whst we think of aa International law, to consider how narrow the field which it covers, how vague and uncertain it Is within Its own field and how difficult Is to compel In any way a recognition of Its gules of right conduct. "There Is but one way In which that weakness of International law can be cured, and that Is by the process of codification, a process which must be extended through long periods, which has been going on very gradually for many years. The Declaration of Paris was a little bit of codification. The three rules of the treaty of Washington constituted a little Mt of codification as between the I'nlted States and Great Britain and they have been In substance accepted and adopted by the nations of Europe and The Hague. "The Oeneva convention covered a cer tain field by codification and the Hague conventions a much wider field.

"I think It Is not generally understood that the first conference at The Hague would have been a complete failure If It had not been for the accomplished work of the Instltut des Kiats Internationale.
