text is and I only wade into the wave at the beach and take two AVe all have favorite words expressive of delight or ab words that easily find their way from brain to words that have in them mornings and mid laughter and thunder bolts and In all the lexi cons and vocabularies there are few words that have for me the attrac tions of the last word of my text There have in the course of our life been many angels of God that have looked over our met us oil the or chanted the darkness or lifted the curtains the great or pulled us back from the precipices or rolled down upon us the rapturous music of

government to sign the new treaty drawn up by Secretary Hay ami him self in relation to the isthmian This brings the matter to a satisfac tory On what is deemed excellent author the fill I owing are the provisions which give the United Slates exclusive military us well as civil control The United States is invested the sole right U protect the canal from damage by an The United States has the right to nn enemys ships from IhJ use of the The United Stales alone of all na tions has the right to defend itself in the waters adjacent to the The principles above noted are im portant because they were forced from Great Britain and neutralize the so called neutralization of the In time of war it is from the text of the that the United States will have privileges not to be enjoyed by other More important than the above agreement between the United States and Great Britain is the following ex tract from the treaty The canal shall be free and open to vessels of commerce and of all nations observing rfcese on terms of entire so that there Shall be no discrimination against any such There was more discussion on the verbage of this proposition than any other between Lord Am bassador Choate and Lord Lord Lansdowne insisted that the phraseology should be that the na tions should agree to observe the The American how insisted that if the nations where in the treaty to agree to certain things word would imply a con tract with foreign and the ob ject of the new treaty was to give exclusive American Lord Lansdowne and Lord Pauncefote v An extremely important provision of the new treaty is article the point of which is that no change of sovereignty or of international rela tions of the country or countries trav ersed by said ship shall affect the general principle of neutralization hereby or the obligations of the parties under this By this article no changes in the governments of Nicaragua or Costa or their relations to any other nations than the United States shall impair the rights of the United States in the if Costa Rica or Nicaragua should ever become a part of the United or by the fortunes of war dependencies on any other the right of the United States would still be The preamble of the new treaty has been changed The change consists of the insertion of the words by whatever route may be considered expedient after the words a ship canal to connect the Atlantic and the Pacific The other points in the new treaty which have heretofore been conjectur are that Great Britain agrees to omit the clause prohibiting the fortifi cation of the That the United Stateshas the by this very to close a canal against a and to defend it by whatever means are deemed nec This gives the United States the right to heretofore The fact that Great Britain has agreed to the treaty as prepared here has already been The isthmian canal which Rear Ad miral Walker is has com pleted its The commission is unanimous in its It favors the adoption of the Nicaraguun route as the most feasible and most practi cable for nn isthmian canal to be un der the management and own ership of the United The commission estimates the cost of the proposed canal at about This is
