Bolivia Wants Free Access to the Sea
\X7 ASHINOTON.—The request of
vv the Bolivian government for
representation in the treaty of Ancon
conferences in Washington between
l'eru and Chile was refused with re-
gret by President Harding.
In Ills reply, which was made ptihilc
by thi State department, Mr. Harding
®ays that the mutter of Bolivia’s par-
ticipation In the conference is a matter
for the "exclusive consideration of the
two governments concerned” and that.
In the circumstances, he was preclud-
ed from taking the initiative suggested
by tlie Bolivian government.
In his message to President Har-
ding, the Bolivian president declared
Bolivia had been unable to gain the
ear of Peru and Chile, In the matter
of its aspirations for a route to the
sen. and added, among other tilings:
“My country’s Insistent protests
have been answered by Chile Invoking
tin* text of the treaty of October 20.
1904, by which Bolivlu transferred to
it the sovereignty over her whole
coast. But the treaty of 1904 was not
a free, spontaneous act.
“But that treaty is not only un-
just because It cuts a whole people
from free connection with the ocean,
which they have had from the day
they were born to autonomous exist-
ence hut as un enforced decision, it
will forever be a source of utieusiness
and unrest to the peace of South
America, for s<> long as Bolivia Is not
reinstated in the territory of which
she was despoiled, it will keep stirring

Something New in International Law
OOMETHING new and possibly em-
^ barrnssing in tlie way of a point of
international law relating to tlie con-
fiscation of church property In war-
time has arisen In the British prize
court. Claims aggregating many him- 1
dreds of thousands of dollars have (
been entered by the owners of such
articles as regalias, surplices, altar
cloths, memorial glass windows, statu
ary, gold communion cups, crucifixes [
and rosaries, nil of enemy origin,
which were shipped by German and
Austrian agents or manufacturers to
American merchants, churches and col-
leges while the World war was in
The ships conveying the goods were
seized by British warships and the
goods were sold by public auction as
Owners in tlie United States, under
the leadership of Goetzes & Co. of
Chicago and of Treffel in Germany,
represented by former United States
Senator J. Hamilton Lewis of Illinois,
claim the amount realized from the
prize sale and losses and damages.
Claimants argue that under the laws
of war of all nations, all church prop-
erty Is sacred aud exempt from war
The British government, however,
contends that the money paid to the
shippers of the sacred goods went to
German firms to be used by Germany
in the prosecution of the campaign.
The British procurator general’s
court has just decided that the ques-
tion is so delicate and so involved
with old and new regulations and war
practices that it must go in its whole
nspect before the full prize court, be-
cause there Is doubt whether the Ger-
man firms in Germany did not have
an Interest in the American firms, and
also whether the prize court ought not
to submit the case to the new world
court nt Geneva or the Washington
conference to he settled under the new
international laws of war.
Uncle Sam to Own the Cape Cod Cana!
TTNCLE SAM is to have another
^ canal beside the big ditch at Pa-
nama. It is the Cape Cod canal, the
purchase of which for $11,500,000 Is
now before congress on recommenda-
tions by Secretaries Weeks. Hoover
and Denby. The project was conceived
two centuries ago, says the New York
Tribune, and at different times was the
subject of various proposals, all of
which failed of fruition. It was not
until seven years ago tlie canal was
completed, cutting the long arm of
Cape Cod off from the rest of Massa-
Tlie canal runs through the towns of
Sandwich and Bourne. It connects
ening the distunce between New York
and New England ports by some 05
miles, and so avoiding the graveyard
of ships on the ocean side of Cape Cod.
It is 13 miles in length, with a width
varying from 100 to 300 feet, and a
depth of 25 feet at mean low water.
The charter was granted by Massa-
chusetts June 1. 1899; excavation was
begun June 22, 1900, and the canal was
opened July 29, 1914. The cost of con-
struction has been estimated by en-
gineers at approximately $1,000,000 a
As a war measure the canal was
placed under the jurisdiction of tlie
railroad administration July 25. 191(5.
by order of President Wilson, and the
railroad administration operated it un-
til February 29. 1920.
The federal government instituted
eminent domain proceedings. After a
jury trial in the Federul District court
tlie canal company was awarded $10.-
801,201 ns the price to lie paid by tlie
government. Tills verdict was set
aside by the Court of Appeals. Confer-
ences subsequently led to a tentative
offer by government officials of $11,-
Cape Cod buy and Buzzards bay. short- I 500.(KH). which was accepted.
