WASHINGTON. Jan. 21. -"The United
States should either submit the Panama
free toll question to Impartial arbitra
tion, or retire from the position we have
taken," was the declaration of Senator
Hoot In the senate today In a speech
favoring the repeal of the free toll pro
vision of the new Panama canal act.
Senator Root took the position that
congress should not have passed a law
last summer that discriminated against
foreign shipping and granted free tolls
to American coastwise shipping. That
sctlon, he declared, had been a source
of "great regret to multitudes of out
fellow citizens," and had ''created a pain
ful Impression throughout the world.
.Senator Root was an active opponent
of the free toll provision when the canal
Act passed last August, and his speech
today opened a fight to secure an amend
ment to the law 'before It goes Into ef
fect. Senator Root declared that con
gress had been tired out before the bill
was taken up last summer and that the
measure never received proper considera
tion. "We were weary and exhausted and our
minds were not working during that
period," he declared.
"A decent regard for the opinions nf
mankind was one of the motives set bv
the people of these colonies In the groat
declaration of their independence," said
Senator Root He outlined the returns
between the United States and Gre.it
Britain which had led up to the making
of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty of 1901, un
der which the canal was "constructed.
Position f United Stntc.
"The United States gave up nothing It
then had,' ,saldie senator, "Us obllgji
tl6nr"rn that treaty wore entirely loq"t-lng-to-
the tuture. But Great Britain gave'
up Its right to the protectorate over the
Mosquito coast, which, It was supposed,
would be the eastern terminus of"th.
canal."
From tht treaty with Great Britain,
Senator Root read the declaration that,
proposed the canal was to be open " n
equal terms to all."
"rhat declaration is the. conertttone of
the rights of the United States at me
Panama canal," he said
"Representations by the United -Status
r'hen the ItaPauncefote treaty was
made put the United States under specific
obligation to make the canal a gre.if
highway open on equal terms to tlis
world," he said. He read from the state
ments made at that time by the United
States representatives that "the United
States would not. If iu could, obtain any
exclusive lights over the canal.
Calls It Discrimination.
"On that representation Great Br.ltain
relinquished Its right to all controf over
the future of tho Panama canal," said
Senator Hoof, "and conrented to' thn
abandonment of -the Clayton-Hulwer
treaty."
Senator Root-declared the United States
had no right to give free, tolls to Ametl
can coastwise ships.
"Great Britain. Mexico, Germany and
other nations have their coastwise trade
in the same way that we have," he said.
You are not rtt liberty to discriminate In

Vera Cruz to Apulco. Such dlserlmlnu-
tlon violates the equality we have guer- '
anteed to the world."
"We are bound by our treaty of arbi
tration," raid Senator Root, "not to stand
with arrogant assertion upon our own
Kovernment's interpretation of our rights;
not to demand that Great Britain suffer
what she deems Injustice. If we insist
upon this position, we shall not only vlo
late our solemn obligations, but, we shall I
oa laise to an principles that we havo 1
asserted in saylmr,to the world tha we i
' were in favor of arbitration
"We have been the npostlc of arbltia

' Presidents, secretaries of state, nmbassu-
dors, congressmen; tho senate and tho
( house have committed the United States
I to the principles of arbitration unequi
Vocally and we have urged' in season and
out of season, the adoption of that prln
i dple.
"If we now accept those principles, we
ay to the world:
" 'We keep the faith of our treaties of
arbitration andwe will submit the ques-
tlon of what this treaty means to an Im
partial tribunal.'"
