(MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS, WORSHIP AND COLONIZATION.) 
 Herman Riesco, President of the Republic of Chile, inasmuch as a treaty
of peace and friendship, with a supplementary protocol thereto, was negotiated,
concluded, and signed on October 20,1904, between the Republic of Chile andthe
Republic of Bolivia, through their duly authorized plenipotentiaries, the
treaty reading as follows: 
 In pursuance of the purpose expressed in article 8 of the truce agreement
of April 4, 1884, the Republic of Chile and the Republic of Bolivia have
agreed to celebrate a treaty of peace and friendship, and to that end have
named and constituted as their plenipotentiaries, respectively: His Excellency
the President of the Republic of Chile, Don Emilio Bello Codecido, minister
of foreign affairs, and His Excellency the President of the Republic of Bolivia,
Don Alberto Gutierrez, envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary of
Bolivia in Chile, who, having exchanged their full powers and having found
them in good and due form, have agreed on the following: 
 ARTICLE 1. The relations of peace and friendship between the Republic of
Chile and the Republic of Bolivia are reestablished, the status established
by the truce agreement being thereby terminated. 
 ART. 2. By the present treaty the territory occupied by Chile by virtue
of article 2 of the truce agreement of April 4, 1884, is recognized as belonging
absolutely and in perpetuo to Chile. 
 The north and south boundary between Chile and Bolivia shall be that here
indicated: 
 From the highest point of Zapaleri Hill (1) in a straight line to the highest
point of the ridge jutting out toward the south from Guayaques Hill, in latitude
(approximate) 22° 54'; hence a straight line to the pass of the Cajon
(3); next, the watershed of the ridge which runs north, including the summits
of Juriques Hill (4), Licancabur Volcano (5), Sairecabur Hill (6), Curiquinca
Hill (7), and Putana or Jorjencal Volcano (8). From this point it will follow
one of the ridges to Pajonal Hill (9) and in a straight line to the south
peak of the Tocorpuri Hills (10), whence it will follow the watershed of
the Panizo Ridge (11) and the Tatio Range (12). It will keep on toward the
north by the watershed of the Linzor Ridge (13) and the Silaguala Hill (14);
from their northern peak (Volcan Apagado) (15) it shall go by a ridge to
the little hill called Silala (16) and thence in a straight line to Inacaliri
or Cajon Hill (17). 
 From this point it shall go in a straight line to the peak which appears
in the middle of the group of the Inca or Barrancane Hills (18), and, again
taking the watershed, shall keep on northward by the ridge of Ascotan or
Jardin I-Till (19); from the summit of this hill it shall go in a straight
line to the summit of Araral 11111 (20) and by straight line again to the
summit of Ollague Volcano (21).
