Officials of both the state department and the army express surprise that any question should be raised as to the risftl of the United States to erect fortifica tions along the Panama Canal. They regard the unfavorable comment In the English press on Colonel Roose velt's remarks about thenecessUy for fortifying the canal as lack of appre ciation both of the action of the Amer ican government and of the attitude of the British foreign office Itself. By implication, It is declared by American officials, the American and British agreement of 1901, knows as the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, gave the United States the right to fortify the canal. . Treaty Contains Rules. The Implication Is drawn from sev eral clauses. This treaty sets forth that the United States adopted as the basis of the neutralization of the ca nal the rules governing the Suez Ca nal with certain modifications. In contrast with the Suez rules, the Pa nama Canal rules, 1: Is contended contain no specific authorization foi an enemy of the United States to use the canal to the detriment of the lat ter's Interest. It is, therefore, the claim of the United States that her guarantee to neutralize the canal only refers to belligerents, not to enemies of the United States. Furthermore, it Is added, no expre9s provision was incorporated in the rules forbidding the United State's to fortify the canal as was done with Turkey in the case of the Suez Canal.
