SENATE DOCUMENT NO. 357
COMPILED BY GARFIELD CHARLES
PART 1-CONVENTIONS IN FORCE
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES,
February 5, 1913. Resolved, That five hundred copies additional of the supplement to the compilation entitled “ Treaties, Conventions, International Acts, and Protocols Between the United States and Other Powers, seventeen hundred and seventy-six to nineteen hundred and nine, including treaties, conventions, important protocols, and international acts to which the United States may have been a party from January first, nineteen hundred and ten, to March fourth, nineteen hundred and thirteen, inclusive, be printed as a Senate document. Attest:
CHARLES G. BENNETT,
This compilation was prepared under the direction of the Com. mittee on Foreign Relations, United States Senate, pursuant to tho resolution of the Senate of August 16, 1912, and embraces the treaties, conventions, international acts, protocols, and agreements to which the United States has been a party since January 1, 1910, down to and including the session of Congress ending March 4, 1913.
There are also inserted in Part II such treaties, conventions, international acts, protocols, and agreements, ratifications of which have been advised by the Senate of the United States, but have failed of ratification by other signatory powers or by the President. These treaties, conventions, etc., therefore, are of no binding effect, but are included in this volume because they may become operative in the future. Although the ratification of the treaties with Panama and Colombia was advised by the Senate prior to January 1, 1910, they are inserted in this volume. These treaties, being of a tripartite nature, each depending on the other, have not become operative by reason of the failure of Colombia to accept them.
GARFIELD CHARLES. COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN RELATIONS,
United States Senate.
