Washington Now that the United States is about to complete the Pana ma canal, many nations are Interest ing themselves in the question ot its fortification and have succeeded in raising discussion of the proposirlca. The United States, however, Is going ahead calmly with the plans for de fending the canal, which are before President Taft, and the question, if any serious opposition develops, must be settled in congress this winttr. The two problems, therefore, which are agitating the officials of the Unit ed States and of other countries, are whether the United States has the right to fortify the canal, and waether it can do it successfully if it has the right. Question of Right to Fortify. There is little doubt of the ability of the United States to forti'y the canal effectively. Whether or tot il has the right to. do so according tc be agreement with Great Brita'n is t nore involved question. Apart Icom treaty consideration, the igut of the United States cannot bf questioned. The United Sate3 con 3-ols the 10-mile strip through fSiet 'he canal runs, as much as it control :he Philippine Islands. This country spent hundreds cf millions of flp"ar o dig the waterway. The right of tbi United States to erect what fortiTica dons it pleases within its own t-rrl ory and to defend its own possesjioB: cannot be questioned. SULTAN OF SULU.
