  The Charge in Colombia (Washington) to the Secretary of State
                                BOGOTA, December 26, 1934-8 p.m.
                                             [Received 9: 47 p.m.]
  112. Department's 72, December 26, 4 p.m. Holidays and the pre-
occupation of the remaining official with the Rio de Janeiro Pact
have apparently caused postponement of serious study of the pro-
posals. The Secretary of the Foreign Office tells me that he is con-
cerned over the changes regarding municipal and state taxes and
over article X of the revised proposals. Regarding the latter he asks
whether the United States might not apply control measures to the
export of implements of war to Colombia which would not be applied
to exports destined to an enemy of Colombia.
  The Secretary also informs me that President Lopez had stated
that he foresaw no difficulty in presenting the commercial treaty to
Congress in the near future thereby indicating that he contemplated
calling another extra session in the new year.

  74. Your 112, December 26, 1934. For your confidential informa-
tion trade agreement negotiations with Brazil are nearing completion
and it is desired to conclude the Colombian negotiations without delay
in order that the two agreements may be brought into force simul-
taneously. Accordingly, you are requested to urge discreetly that the
proposals be acted upon promptly.
  It is especially desired that Colombia agree to the proposed changes
relating to state and municipal taxes. Since the Secretary of the
Foreign Office has expressed an interest therein it is suggested that
