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 movements In Porto HIco, mul, In fact, all legislation In tho United States which affects Porto HIco. The one 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 Danish. "If wo come under the American flag how will be looked upon by the Ameri can people'.'" asked a prominent mer chant, who Is a negro. "We are na turally anxious to know what our sta tus will be. Now, we can send our children to Europe to be educated, and they will be received with the respeqt duo them. We aro colored, hut we have the refinement and education of the white man, and we feel we are their equals. We can go to England or on the Continent without embar rassment. Now, can you mention a hotel in New York or any other Ameri can city where wc would dare to reg ister. "If wo come under American rule our trade must be with America. Could we go to the "United States to purchase our stock without being hu miliated V" Should the United Slates acquire these islands she will have a dlfllctilt problem lo solve In the race question. 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, the governor of Porto HIco will bo placed in charge with power to ap point subordinates. The government ofllces are now mostly held by llauish subjects. Ou account of their color the St. Thomlans do not expect to succeed the retiring Danes. NORTH SCRANTON NOTES.
