This abrogates the Clayton-Buiwer Treaty, but provides for the neutrality of the Canal in war as well as peace. This last feature has evoked a somewhat noisy opposition to the treaty, but the spokesmen for the administration claim to be confident of a safe majority for it.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
