WORK OF THE SECOND PAN-AMERICAN CONGRESS.



The socond Pan-American congress, which
opened In the City of Mexico Oct. 23,
1901, came to a close Jan. 30, 1902. Some
twenty projects were approved by the dele-
Kates. Among them wore the following;
The establishment of a Pan-American bank;
the building of an international railroad;
the holding of a custom-house congress for
unifying and simplifying rules and methods
of procedure; appointment of a commission
of jurists to codify an international law.
the adoption of treaties for international
copyright and patent laws and for protec-
tion against anarchy; establishment of an
international sanitary office to provide for



uniform quarantine regulations and sani-
tary policing; appointment of an interna-
tional archaeological commission to meet
once a year and to conduct explorations;
reorganization of the Bureau of American
Republics, and provision for the arbitra-
tion of international disputes.

The last-mentioned project occasioned a
great deal of discussion, Chile being the
principal objector. However, all the dele-
gates voted to accept, on the part of the
congress, the Hague convention.

It was also agreed that a third Pan-
American conference should be hpld within
five years, probably In Buenos Ayres.
