The Hamburg-American to Establish

WASHINGTON. Much concern has
been caused the American stato de
partment as a result of tho action of
tho Hamburg-American Steamship
company In purchasing Water island,
a small key, which commands tho
Danish West Indies, for ubo as a coal
ing station. This commands tho ap
proach to the canal.
Tho anxiety of tho authorities arises
from tho fact that tho Hamburg-American
company is subsidized by tho
German govornmenL Its Bteamors aro
available) In time of war for uso as
auxiliary cruisers, and its coaling
stations may be utilized by tho Ger
mnn government in order to carry on
When tho Panama canal Is complet
ed St. Thomas, which has tho best
harbor In tho group, would make an
ideal base from which a hostile fleet
could operato and control tho canal.
Besides, tho canal commands Porto
Rico and Cuba, and these Islands aro
tho key to a descent upon tho east
ern coast of tho United States. Tho
Island which has been purchased Is
just off. tho mouth of the harbor of
St. Thomas, and that tho company
Intends to build a largo dock. Any
Gorman men of war might uso it. It
follows as a matter of course that tho
company will erect shops to mako
repairs and will maintain a largo coal
supply on tho Island, which will bo
avallablo for German battle ships or
cruisers. From what experts In tho
navy department say, It would bo
against tho intersts of the United
States to permit tho consumatlon of
tho project of tho Hamburg-American.
