european Nations Generally Take
Same View as Great
(By Assoctsted Press.)
Washington, March 5.-President
Wilson went to congress today and
pleaded for repeal of the provision of
the Panama canal act which exempts
American coastwise shipping from
tolls. ?He tersely asserted that his
resson for asking the repeat was be
cause everywhere except in the United
States the tolls'exemption -iras re
garded as a violation of tho Hay
Pauncefote treaty, and he further
asked it in support of tho adminis
tration's general foreign policy.
That the president's request-will be
granted there seemed little doubt to
night, despite the fact that there will
be vigorous opposition both in thc
sonate and the house. Initiative ac
tion will be taken tomorrow when the
house interstate and . foreign ? com
merce committee witt m not to consid
er the message. It was said tonight
that this committee would report a'
bill to flatly repeal the exemption 1
provision. In thc senate-today Sena-'
tor Chilton, a democrat member of
?ha Interoceanic canals committee, in
troduced an amendment to the canal
act to give the president authority, to
make or suspend tolls by proclama
tion and to prescribo tolls In cases
exempted. This would put it up di
rectly to the president to eliminate'
the exemption. Aside from the bear
lng of today's message on the Pan
ama tolls question, some of the phases
u?ud hy the president attracted wide
spread comment lo congressional
quarters au bearing on foreign re?a
liona,... ,-.., '*
>? Ht't An Ei?E?p?r.
V Later In thc day the president
ttilkol with caller? and explained that
thes? phrases had no significance be
yond their bearing on the need ot
rigorous good faith in the Panama
tolls question, as an evidence of un
wavering faith on all other questions,
and that nothing critical was pending
:.. varulgn relations. But the lan
guage of the message continued to be
commented opon as having an appli
cation considerably broader than the
Panam* question...
Tllfee points in particular ? were
noted: s
1. The v president's statement that
no communication he had addressed to
congress carried "graver o?* moro far
reaching Implications to the interest
of- the country."
2. That everywhere .outside thc
United States the language of tho
Hay-Pauncefote treaty waa given but
one Interpretation.
S. The concluding stdtement as to
"other matters of even greater dell
cacy and nearer consequence."
"Close to Wind as Possible.**
Tho president further told bis call
ers that while he never had received
any formal communications on the
subject, he had understood that Euro
pe-ti nations generally took the same
view as did Great Britain, that the
llay-Pauncefote treaty was violated
bj* tho Panama canal act. He pointed
out that in dealing with foreign af
fairs : nations which believed the
United States did not keep its promise
on so important a treaty ap the Hay
Psuncsfote couvenUoa would not be
likely to expect sincerity on other del
icate questions.
Word had coma to the pr?sident of
a fccneral impression in Europe that
tho United States was "sailing aa
elbas, to the wind aa possible" in In
terpreting promises made In Us treat
ies. No pressure had been brought to
bear by any nation, but the president
felt confident that foreign govern
ments had this feeling on the subject.
In this connection Mr. Wilson re
vealed the fact that since'his talk , a
yegr ago with former Ambassador
Bryce, in which he, gave assurances
that thc tolls question would be taken
up at the regular session of congress.
No communications, formal or other
wise, had passed between Great Brit
ain and tho United States,
