CONTINUING TREATIES. CONVENTIONS, INTERNATIONAL ACTS.
OF AMERICA AND OTHER POWERS. 1776-1909
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES,
March 2, 1923. Resolved, That the revised supplement to the compilation entitled " Treaties and Conventions Between the United States and Other Powers,” prepared and revised up to March 4, 1923, under authority of the Senate resolution of August 19, 1921, be printed as a Senate document, and that 500 additional copies be printed for the use of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. Attest:
GEORGE A. SANDERSON, Secretary. II
This compilation is published pursuant to Senate Resolution 130, Sixty-seventh Congress, first session, agreed to on August 19, 1921, which is as follows:
Resolved, that there be prepared, under the direction of the Committee on Foreign Relations, a revised supplement to the compilation entitled “ Treaties, conventions, international acts, and protocols, between the United States and other powers, 1776–1909," to include treaties, conventions, important protocols, and international acts to which the United States may have been a party since January 1, 1910.
The present work, therefore, contains the instruments of treaty character which have come into force since the publication of Senate Document No. 357, Sixty-first Congress, second session. Changes in the status of treaties included in that work have been indicated in the proper place in this volume, which supersedes Senate Document No. 1003, Sixty-second Congress, third session. The main text of this publication embraces only such treaties and agreements as establish permanent relations between the United States and the respective signatory powers. Postal conventions, which are negotiated by the Postmaster General by and with the advice and consent of the President, have never been included in any compilation made by the Department of State or under the auspices of the Senate. They are printed in the Statutes at Large and in separate pamphlet form by the Post Office Department.
For purposes of reference footnotes have been added in this volume, as well as references to the Treaty Series, published by the Department of State, and to the Statutes at Large. In the Treaty Series each treaty is printed in all official languages and in separate pamphlet form.
A number of bipartite instruments, chiefly exchanges of notes, have been concluded between the United States and other governments with respect to their rights or privileges in States not parties to the agreements. These are set forth under the party of the second part. Multipartite instruments respecting a third State have been treated in this volume as international agreements. Both types are recorded, in chronological sequence, if the instrument in question is or has been in force.
Attention is called to the manner of printing the treaties establishing friendly relations with Austria, Germany, and Hungary. Those treaties are novel in form, being based upon the substance of a congressional joint resolution by which “there are expressly reserved to the United States and its nationals any and all rights, privileges, indemnities, reparations, or advantages, together with the right to enforce the same, to which it or they have become entitled " under the terms of the armistices and the treaties of peace
