October 28, 1916

THE Governments of the United States of America and of Brazil

being desirous of giving another manifestation of the old friendship

that binds the two countries together, and being united in the purpose

of promoting the progress of civilization through peace, have resolved

to enter into a special treaty for the amicable settlement of any future

difficulties which may arise between the two countries, and for that

purpose have appointed as their plenipotentiaries:

The President of the United States of America, Mr. William

Jennings Bryan, Secretary of State; and

The President of the United States of Brazil, Mr. Domicio da

Gama, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary;

Who, duly authorized, have agreed upon the following articles:

ARTICLE I. The two high contracting parties agree to submit to

a Permanent International Commission, for investigation and report,

all disputes that may arise between them concerning questions of an

international character which cannot be solved by direct diplomatic

negotiation, and which are not embraced by the terms of any treaty

of arbitration in force between them; and they agree not to declare

war or to begin hostilities pending the investigation and report of

said commission.

ARTICLE II. The commission mentioned in the preceding article

shall be composed of five members each appointed for five years, as

follows: Each government shall designate two members, only one of

whom shall be of its own nationality. The fifth member shall be

chosen by common agreement between the two Governments, it being

understood that he shall not belong to any of the nationalities already

represented in the commission.

The fifth member shall perform the duties of president.
