Nov. 25 By the Aasoeiat a nra. Pir.ba.rd Washburn Child. ru ; chief American spokesman at the Near fVuBtpm conference, amazed the other delegations to-day by reiterating the Insistence of the United States upon the open door policy ' in ' Turkey, lie . read the aide-memoire delivered on Out. 3(f to Great Britain, Trance and Italy, and said that the American gov- yrnmcnt awl puimc suppuucu w.o icy. ' The conference adjourned Its morn ing fwssion immediately after the com pletion of Ambassador Child's state- ment, ana van resume w ." of boundaries this afternoon. Mr. Child spoke as follows: 'It i not and will not be the con cern of the representatives of the Unit-" cd States to express at mi ranram views which have not for their bases "the legitimate national interests of the ! United States or those of humanita rian consideration, which I assume are shared by every delegation present. We will, however, and I trust ac ceptably, state . when the occasion Rrises the position of the United states. We believe that a convenient and appropriate occasion has now arisen. , "It is not unknown to those who fiave observed the history of cotifer . ences and negotiation that few sub- iects may be considered by themselves. )l note, referring to the specific sub ject under discussion, that all the vari pus poiuts of negotiation must in the end be considered as a unit, and it is often true" that not one detail of ne gotiation can be considered as isolated from the others." x- '- "The-representatives of the United States are unable, therefore, to hear concluded! the discussion of any terri torial settlement which in its turn may affect other settlements without drawing the attention of the confer ence to certain traditional principles of the foreign policy of America., "Reference to this policy was mads In an aide-memoire delivered to the ministers of foreign affaire of the three Inviting powers on Oct. 30, less than pne month ago." Here Mr. Child read the clauses from the American communication relating to the opposition of the United States to secret treaties and agreements, espe dally to those providing for sones of special economic and commercial influ ence in Turkey, as follows: "As the object in view in submit ting this suggestion (that is, to send observers to Lausanne), is the elimi nation of any possible cause of mis understanding, it is considered appro priate to call attention to the attitude of the United States in respect to se fret treaties and agreements. "It is not felt that arrangements , previously made with respects to Turk ish territory, which provide for the b- , tablishment of cones of special com -Tnercial and economic influence such for example, as the tri partite agree ment of 1920 are consonant with the people or the equality of economic op portunity. It is assumed that the al lied powers will not now desire and do not now intend, to carry into effect previous arrangements of thi nature. "The United States has no desire to take any action which might embar rass the allied powers in the proper ef fort to secure peace. It desires nothing which need conflict with the interests rf other countries, if the principle of commercial opportunity for all nation i recognixed at the outset. "The United States has no intention of seeking for itself or its nationals a position of special privilege, but it de sires to protect its rights and to as sure the open door." BURTON MAT BE SENATOR.
