little (rap, whieli they claim was laid for them
at Thursday night's meeting by the opponents
of the oiilinantc. It will be icmcmbercd tli.it
the ordinance was called up on second leading
by Hie opponents and parsed by a ote of thirteen
to seven, tbiee of Hie nirmhois who bavi! here
tcfote been iolcntly opposed to its pavage ot
iug in faior of it. When Hie cliatr had all
iionrrcd that the oidiiiamo bad passed second
leading, Mr. UcAndiow, one of its opponents,
moled tliat it pass third reading. Scleral per.
sons weic suipii-cd tlie next moment to lieir
Mr. rirnions, a friend of Hie measure, move lli.it
il tie postponed, 'this motion prevailed.
Surpilsp was e.xptesed thai .Mr. (lemons did
lint let Hie nicisiue go to the third anil linat
reading when Hie thirteen mrmhcis seemed to be
ready to vote for it. Mr. demons evidently knew
very well what he was about, as tin: story was
rurieiit yesterday that Hie thiee ineuiliirs who
tinned and oted for tlie measuie on second read,
big merely did so to lead the other side Into
agieeing lo let it come up on thiid leading.
It is slated that if tie; vote on third reading
was taken Hie-e membeis would have voted
against Hie ordinance and tliat it would have
failed of passage. Then under Hie inles of select
council it unild not b.nc been brought upon
agiin this j oar unless by a two-thirds ote tin
rules weie suspended.
The opening of Hie slnit waist .enenn calls lo
mind the fact that the genuine shitt waist for
men wiiiih was promised last season has not
been foi Incoming. Mr. White, of tlie Iheodnie
A. White Manufacturing company, stales Hut .the
shirt waists of our childhood, which were but.
toned to kniikeihr.ckeis, have been found want
ing, and tint none nf Hie leading manufacturers
would w-nturc In place them on the maiket.
Mr. White, however, shows beautiful designs in
negligee sliiits, whieli contain plaited bosoms
and aie cut with a lulliic.-s in the hack which
glics the shirt waist q'lfect and makes Hie gar

WHEBB NEGROES SPEAK FOUR
Many Arc Graduates of Foreign Uni
versitiesTransfer to tho United
States Will Bring In a Hnco Issue
nnd May Ruin., TradeTho, People
Do Not Want It. ,
Tho better informed of the Danish
West Indian Islanders (nntl that
means soven-tenths ot the popula
tion, for the St. Thcmns negro in
probably hotter Informed tl-'jin antf
other man of his color) arc wntchlng

resource of tho Islnnd Is the tradlnr
Interesls, the daily bread of nearly
all the. Inhabitants depends upon the
shipping In tho harbor. The drydock,
owned by a Hrltlsh syndicate, docs
a good business, and there are several
ship chandlers of good rating. '
The people look on It as inevitable
that the Islands must some day come
under American control, as Denmark
cariiiot afford to continue tho yearly
contribution of $lf,0,000 (approximate
estlmnte) to supply tho deficit. The
merchants do not seem pleased at
what they hear of American progress
In rnrto HIco, Kucli a thing ns n tar
iff Is unknown here, and such nn In
r.tltutloii Is considered an Impossibil
ity. With a closed port, tho opinion
seems to be that the Islands would be
worse off than now.
The Hamburg-American Steamship
line recently established a coaling sta
tion here, which It would have to give
i,p should tho port bo closed. Tho
French line nlso has a coal clock.
These steamship lines arc the heaviest
purchasers of supplies here, and It
would be a great loss to the Island to
lose their trade.
THE ItACB QUESTION'.
After the question of a free port, the
next objection Is the race question. It
Is an exception to meet a white man
here. The average American is sur
prised at the intelligence of the col
oreel people. Mauy of them have been
graduated from French, English or
Herman universities, and their general
knowledge of world affairs Is astonish
ing. It Is not rare to llnel a St. Tho
inian who speaks with apparent equal
fluency Kngllsh, French, Cicrman and

children to Europe to be educated, and
they will be received with the respeqt

Should the United Slates acquire

As a rule, however, the residents here
seem to expect annexation nnd are
prepared to meet the inevitable, but
they want to know at once the out
come of tho negotiations, which have
been under way for nearly two years.
It is generally believed that, should
the United States acquire the islands,
