Mr CASEY - 1 do not happen to have seen the report to which the honorable gentleman has referred, but it has the well-known ring of truth, because Soviet Russia, I think, neglects no opportunity to fish in troubled waters, and this is a clear and fairly obvious case in which, at least on the surface, Soviet Russia might be able to say something to create trouble where, at the present moment, no trouble exists. However, I do not myself believe that that would have any relevance in regard to the Suez matter. The two artificial waterways are so wholly different in their origins and in the undertakings by which they were established and conducted, that 1 do not think that even the most vigorous and original-minded propagandist could find anything in the Panama matter that could have any further destructive reference to Suez.
