MAINTAIN RIGHT TO
FORTIFY BIG CANAL
British Attitude Is Surprise to
WASHINGTON. 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
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.
