Excerpt from International Waterways: I, the Evolution of the Principle of International Waterways; II, a Reference-Manual to the Treaties, Conventions, Laws, and Other Fundamental Acts Governing the International Use of Inland Waterways

One hundred and four years ago, when the representatives of the diverse nations of Europe, assembled at the Congress of Vienna, were, in conformity with the stipulations of the Treaty of Paris, instituting the principle of the universal navigation of inland waterways, even those entertaining the most sanguine expectations could not have foreseen the decisive part which this innovation was destined to play in the development of transportation during the ensuing century on the waterways even of distant continents. In 1815 the mechanical propulsion of vessels, which constitutes a most vital element in the utilization of the highways of inland waters, had not been sufficiently perfected to disclose its limitless possibilities in the improvement of international communication and the development of the world-wide commercial and industrial activities of the Nineteenth Century.

In fulfillment of the aspiration "to facilitate the communication between nations, and continually to render them less strangers to each other," as proclaimed by the Peace of Paris in 1814, the nations of the world, through the adoption of the principle of free navigation, have facilitated international commerce and have demonstrated what may be attained through effective international cooperation.

By providing for the international navigation of certain European waterways, in the treaties with Austria, Germany and. Poland, the Allied and Associated Powers at the Peace Conference at Paris have lately evinced an enlightened appreciation of the benefit to be derived by all nations from securing the most ample facilities of intercommunication.
