In 1850, by the Clayton- Bulwer treaty, the United States and Great Britain had agreed upon the construction of a canal by a private corporation, under the supervision of the two countries and other states, which might join the combination, on a basis of neutralization.- "Contemporary American History, 1877-1913", Charles A. Beard.
The United States agreed to adopt certain rules as the basis of the neutralization of the canal, and expressly declared that " the canal shall be free and open to the vessels of commerce and of war of all nations, observing these Rules, on terms of entire equality, so that there shall be no discrimination against any such nation, or its citizens or subjects, in respect of the conditions or charges of traffic or otherwise."- "Contemporary American History, 1877-1913", Charles A. Beard.
