In the city of Sucre, on August 6, 1874, Mr. Don Mariano Baptista Minister of the Industry, and the Sr; Don CA, met in the room of the Foreign Office of Bolivia. Charge d' Affaires de Chile. Mr President of the Commission, Mr President of the European Parliament, Mr President of the Commission, Mr President of the Commission, Mr President, ladies and gentlemen, Mr President-in-Office of the Council.-(FR) Mr President, ladies and gentlemen, I would like to thank the rapporteur for his excellent report. Governments of the Republic mobs.
Mr. Baptista replied that this was, in fact, the desire of his government with which he interpreted the public sentiment of Bolivia. I thought that, as was the conviction of the Bolivian Government, it would also be the conviction of all those who wanted to give an account of what certain definitions of the treaty were important, so far from serious and inevitable conflicts. how much depends on the very nature of the pact itself: and congratulations on finding in Mr. Walker Marta-nez the present as in past the same loyalty and good spirit that they had guided him in the first conferences. He was willing to resume them with such a return to entering them with equal dignity among the contracting of the contracting of the contracting of the same: that which would be obtained-the declaration of the Excmo being withdrawn. Mr. IbÃ ¡ Ã ± ez, of December 30, 1873, against which the Government of Bolivia had claimed.
Mr. Walker MartA-nez: The government of Bolivia was alarmed by that statement because it was supposed to be a sense of the intentions of his Government. It is not intended to alter in the smallest or the 66th treaty, nor does it mean anything other than the natural and remote protection of Chilean rights recognized by that Treaty. The words "territory of common participation" have been wrongly interpreted: they are only the abbreviated pressure of the partition of the customs duties of common participation that Chile corresponds; and in this sense it is done a duty in declare it on behalf of your Government.
Baptista: Already Mr. Walker MartA-nez has given to ntes in official notes the same plication, which reduced to his object was quite enough, and as such was estimated by the Bolivian Government. But, in its opinion, the declaratory could have two effects: taken in the apparent breadth of its text as offensive to the sovereign, there would have been the rupture of relations and spare a situation sought out of the treaty; maintained in His Jenuino felt as it was now, it always mattered pressure; and even though the Chilean Government denied this carA, it was a matter of the nature of the act itself. From this fate, all of his freedom, a disadvantageous and offensive condition of the Bolivian national feeling, was taken away from the negotiations, and he also imposed his own to have the opinion of the peoples of the country after the acceptance of the conventions.
Mr. Walker MartA-nez: Siente overdoes Mr. Baptista dÃ© such scope to the declaratory. None of his statements reveals such pressure; all of them, on the contrary, are reduced to the protection of the rights of Chile, due to the laws of the last Bolivian Assembly that will not know them. Those laws, which were dictated with preterition and against art. 5 At the end of the 66 treaty, sanctioned by the Executive and regulated afterwards, they naturally imposed on the Chilean Government the obligation to protest and safeguard their right so authentitically unknown. It does not even more than the text or the meaning of the declaratory.
Baptista: Whatever the difficulties of its interior policy, the Bolivian Government is competent-to look for the opportunity to be directed, in charge only to make known its purpose on time and without the other partthe
contractor. This had been done with the negotiator of Chile, reiterating the exact fulfillment of the article 5.Aº, and preventing the execution of the lei serA-to be suspended at the point that indicated the prudence. The regulation imposed and given would stop those occasions; and the very course of things brings us-to necessarily the need for a postponement. In doing so, the government was sure not to miss the lei of its paA-s, and it endured, reserving its plications, the impatiences of opinion. The declaratory did not know these only authoritative sources of report: it dispensed with these antecedents, by means of private ones, which are the only ones conducive to their Cancellera-a. But the offices of the Bolivian Government on 4 and 5 February came out of the way, which destroyed-yet at its base-all the wrong interpretation and revel-an the lack of official acts. For them it was part of the Chilean Government that the article 5.A ° would not be altered in its execution; that the laws that contradicted him-they were found and de facto were not executed. At such a point, and that was in which we found, the declaratory did not have-to object and there was no reason for its maintenance: what was true, even giving the only carA-cter that the SeA ± or Walker Marta-nez intends. It is, therefore, essential to withdraw the declaration to resume negotiations.
The discussion by the two negotiators in the same direction for some time will be followed. Asltimely the SeA ± or Walker MartA-nez to cut the difficulty formulated the following proposition:
? As a sincere proof of my personal good desire to interpret the fraternal feeling of my government and to believe in this fate to leave the sensitivities of the Cancerla-as, I propose that the initiation and conclusion of our negotiations on the Subrogatory Treaty and the suspension of the declaratory of 30 December, are acts of the same protocol and considered as a single acto.â€ • Not much importance to the issue; and to-I think devious the difficulty without suffering the dignity of any of the contractors.
The SeA ± or Baptista: This is a I do not dare to accept it, nor to reject it, until consulting the President and the Cabinet.
The conference was suspended and the consultation was made, the SeA ± or Minister of Foreign Affairs who accepted the The proposed formula, seen in the great and permanent advantages that Bolivia and Chile would bring to the new pact, and persuaded that the bases in which from the time of the talks were held in accord with the negotiating methods were those benefits.
In The European Council, the European Parliament, the European Parliament, the Council and the European Parliament These results in the approval of the following Treaty:
