Not illustrated. 1913 edition. Excerpt: ...been so provided. Examining other portions of the final act, we find that when a reference is made to all the powers participating in the Conference the expression "powers who were invited to the second peace Conference" is used. It is fair to assume that had it been the intention to require the agreement of all the powers invited to the Conference the same expression would have been used in this instance. Examining the conventions formally adopted by the Conference we find that even in such cases no unanimous agreement is necessary. They bind in each instance only the "contracting powers," i.e., the powers who sign them, not necessarily all those who were represented at the Conference. With substantial unanimity they provide as in article 93 of the "Convention for the Pacific Settlement of International Disputes," that "the nonsignatory powers who were invited to the second Peace Conference can adhere to the present convention." This clearly shows that it was not expected that all the nations represented at the Conference would sign the convention. But even all the signatory powers need not ratify before the conventions become operative. Substantially all of them provide, as in article 95, of the same convention: "The present convention shall go into effect, as regards the powers that have taken part in the first deposit of ratification, sixty days after the date of the proces-verbal of deposit." It should also not be overlooked that provision is made in the conventions that powers desiring to withdraw from them may do so upon giving a specified notice--this shows not only that less than all may concur in establishing a convention but that some one of that number may withdraw and leave more
