The Ambassador in Chile (Collier) to the Secretary of State

118. Supplementing my 115, August 30, 3 p.m. Proposed law omitted paragraph 2 of commission’s recommendations because section [Page 530] 17 of nitrate law already gives President power to pay bounty to producers who ship on Chilean ships. Much anxiety amongst diplomats of shipping countries, all cabling their Governments for instructions.
