Minister of Foreign Affairs Andrade Is
Father of Idea Placed Before Pan
American Union's Commission Ap
pointed Recently by All American
Republics Excepting Mexico.
The government of Venezuela has
formally proposed a great internation
al conference in Washington to con
sider and revise the rules of interna
tional law regarding the rights of neu
tral nations in time of war. The Vene
zuelan proposal is one of the biggest
and broadest that has come out of the
feeling among neutral nations gener
ally that the war in Europe points the
need for a definite determination of
neutral rights as affected by the oper
ation of belligerent nations and their
cruisers in a struggle like that now
being fought in Europe.
This proposal was submitted by Ven
ezuela, through its minister in Wash
ington, Dr. Santos A. Dominici, to the
governing board of the Pan-American
union. The governing board will refer
the proposal to the special commission
recently created upon motion of Dr.
Romulo S. Kaon, the ambassador from
Argentina, who acted on Instructions
from his government.
What makes the Venezuelan project
exceedingly important and farreaching
Is the fact that it does not limit the
suggestion for such an international
conference to the twenty-one nations
of North, South and Central America
which have membership in the Pan
American union. The Venezuelan idea
contemplates that the Washington con
ference shall embrace representatives
from every one of the neutral nations,
that all the neutral nations be invited
to participate in the deliberations and
that the work of the Washington con
ference be submitted to a congress of
all the nations. Including not only
those which are neutral, but also those
which are belligerents.
General Andrade Author of Idea.
The author of the suggestion for this
great conference of neutrals is General
Ignacio Andrade, who is now the min
ister of foreign affairs of Venezuela,
who submitted the proposal on behalf
of his government a'fter conferring at
Caracas with the leading statesmen of
that country.
General Andrade was president of
Venezuela twelve years ago and Is a
brother of Don Jose Andrade, who for
some years was minister plenipoten
tiary and envoy extraordinary from
Venezuela in Washington.
The written proposal of the Venezue
lan government is not to be made pub
lic until after It has been submitted to
the special commission of the Pan
American union, which was appointed
several weeks ago by unanimous vote
of every American republic except
Mexico with instructions to consider
problems growing out of the war as
affecting neutrals and to report recom
mendations to the governing board of
the Pan-American union.
Define Neutral Rights.
The proposal points out that neutral
nations appear to be anxious to have
their rights, as well as the new prob
lems affecting those rights, revised and
definitely defined.
Dr. Dominici. the Venezuelan minis
ter here, has been informally consult
ing with the members of the diplomatic
corps from all neutral nations repre
sented In Washington and with those
of neutral European and Asiatic na-
, tions and acquainting them with the
1 details of the Andrade idea for the pro
J posed conference. As a result of these
informal conversations, diplomats rep
I resenting the different European and
other neutral nations have been con
sulting their governments and inform
ing them of the plan.
Although diplomats representing neu-
L trals have only been discussing the mat
ter informally and can take no steps
to bind their governments without in
structions from their foreign offices, the
Venezuelan idea appears to have been
received favorably.
It is not the purpose of the Venezue
lan government to seek to lay down
new rules of international law or a neu
tral made code that would be binding
upon belligerents who were not repre
sented in the conference. The Idea is
that the neutrals shall first bofd their
great conference In Washington 4ind
consider all the problems growing out
of the war that affect them. The idea
then Is to reach an agreement along
definite lines as to what should be dorir
to clearly define the rights of neutrals.
After this has been done and after the
war in Europe Is over, the work of the
Washington conference would b
placed before a congress of nations,
and in this second congress the neutral

the 'digested thought and combined
wisdom of all the neutrals, would be
submitted to the judgment of all na
tionsneutral as well as belligerent.
