that the repeal of the tolla exeunt lon
in the Panama' canal Act "cannot be
constnido to be a construction ' ?the
H?y-Pauccefote treaty" but la "ahnp
ly a r?fusal on the part ot. tho United
States to raise that question tarbat
Mr. Bryan discusses various features
of the subject-tat, limiting ??.debate
in tiie House of Representatives, -thc

Claiming that the opponents of the
repeal bad seized upon the charge ?bat
thc President was "surrende{tt|H^o
England," Mr. Bryan declared ihatdhe
opposition to the repeal nad'd9HMff*d
to appeal "to prejudice rafngr wan

"What has Great Britain done? ho
asked, "to Justify the accusation ?at

Great m .tain claims, k is ? surrend
er to Gr?at Britain for cur nation to
repeal the law that raised the ques
tion. The repeal of the law cannot be
construed to be, a construction of th?
treaty. It Is simply a rsfuaal on the
part of the-United States io r?Iso vas
question In that way. In the contro
versy ever the Welland canal, Cana
da withdrew a discrimination which she
had made In favor of Canadian ships,
in order that, no cause for friction
with the United SUtes authorities in
regard to the matter should exist." '
"WJhy cannot the United Staten
withdraw a discrimination for the
same reason?. When the /treaty Invol
ved was before the senate for ratifi
cation an attempt was made, to so
amend it as to permit a discrimina
tion In favor of the coastwise vessels,
but lt wss voted down by a decided
majority. With this record to sup

nations question our right to make an
exception in favor of American ves
sels?" ;

Discussing the President's right to
expect th? support of Congress, when
he deals with International questions.
Secretary Bryan adds:
"Tb? chief executive speaks for. th?
nation in international affairs, and it
is only fair to assume that he speaks
advisedly when he declares that in
tercourse with other nations -is se
riously embarrassed by the frae-to)ls
law which he seeks td repeal.
"We occupy, today a proud position
among tbs nations ; we are the fore
moat advocate of peace ead arbitra
tion; we are becoming moro and more
a moral factor throughout the world.
Can we afford to surrender this posi
tion? Can we afford to belittle the
great enterprise that has reached ita
consummation at the Isthmus? If
o?r nstlop desires to be measured' by
intellectual ?nd ethical standards, now
unworthy to brag of our strength and
lo threaten to use that strsng'h. 'We
are ready to fight' does not arouse the
enthusiasm now that lt did a few cen
turies ago. Brute force ts not tbs lovel
upon which this nation settles ita
controversies today. The question ls
not what we can do,, but what we
ought to do. The path of history is
strewn with the wreck of nation* that
boasted that they were all powerful.
This question must be decided oh mor
al pneciptes and not by the coant'ng
of our regiments and battleships What
shall lt profit a nation If it conquers
the ?bole world and loses Ita -/aith
in the doctrine that righteousness .-.re
