"Of the three small islands on the
northeastern edge of the Carribean
sea. for which the United States ex
pects to pay Denmark ?r,oon.0()0. St.
Thomas and Sa. Jo, both smaller and
less densely populated than St. Croix,
have been the scenes of many thrill
in. ir episodes. Here white colonists of
four nations followed each orther with
bewildering perplexity during the sev
enteenth and eighteenth centuries.
"More than a hundred years after
the discovery of St. Thomas by Co
lumbus in 1 193, the island was unin
habited, although its excellent harbor
had been a port of refuse for Dutch
navigators during rcanv decades.
When a handful of French colonists,
survivors of a massacre on Crab Is
land, perpetrated by a band of Span
iards from Porto Rico, reached its
shores in a dugout in 1(47, they found
evidences of an earlier settlement, but
no clews as to the nationality of their
predecessors or of their fate. These
French wanderers were not disposed
to brave a similar mysterious end, so
they sailed on.
"At about the time that Peter Stuy
vesant was established a representa
tive form of government on Manhat
tan Island, some of his fellow coun
trymen were establishing the first re
corded settlement on St. Thomas.
These hardy colonists met the same
fate which overtook their brother Hol
landers of 'New Amsterdam,' for three
years after the town on the Hudson
became New York the St. Thomas
ice every Sunday in Christian's fort
when the drum beats, and on failure
of doing so is to pay a fine of 25
pounds of tobacco. Persons of all
other nations are bound to attend
service every Sunday afternoon at the
same place, under the same penalty.'
"As to armament the order was:
'For the defense and good of the coun
try every householder shall keep in
his house for himself and every man
the English also. - The latter soon de- j jn hjs service, a sword with belt, and
serted the island and turned to the
more fertile lands of St. Martin's and
pioneers were foi'ced to surrender to
St. Eustatias, so .thtit in 1671, when
the Danes, wishing to shore in the
colonial prosperity of other European
nations, chartered the West Indes and
Guinea company, St. Thomas, unin
habitated again, was awaiting the ad
vent of settlers who were to establish
Denmark's right in the island. With
has been maintained from that day
up to the present time.
"The legend that St. Thomas was at
dme time the headquarters of the ruth
less buccaneers who terrorized the
Spanish Main for so many years, is
perpetuated in the names given to
two towers still standing on the
heights back of the seaport of Char
lotte Amalie. On one hill is 'Blue
beard's Castle,' while on an adjacent
height rises 'Blackbeard's Castle.'
j History does not substantiate the ro
mantic tradition, and it is extremely
doubtful if the buccaneers were ever
in possession here.
"When the Danes arrived they were
under very strict orders as to religious
observances and with respect to a
'preparedness' program against rival
colonists. The first order issued by
the governor was: 'Every person who
speaks Danish is bound to attend serv-

a gun with sufficient powder and ball;
and also each householder shall have
two pounds of powder, or more if he
pleases. Every person neglecting this
duty shall pay 100 pounds of tobacco.
"The order for the citi.en army ran
thus: 'Every Saturday afternoon the
drum beats, all persons who can use
a gun shall meet at the parade ground
fully armed. Any person absent, in
favorable weather, shall forfeit every
time twenty-five pounds of tobacco,
which is to be paid at the end of the
year for the benefit of thote who meet,
'The shortage of labor during te
first year er two of Danish occupa
tion w:is overcome by the importation
of many slaves from the Cold Co:u t
of Atric :. The laws governing thso
human chattels were extremely severe.
'Drum dances' and feasts were for
bidden and all slaves were required to
be at home by sunset on Sundays. A
slave transgressing such regulations
was for the first offense whipped, for
the second his ears were cut off and
for a third he was hanged and his
head placed on a stake.
"In the neighboring island of St.
John the slave laws were even more
drastic. Here are some of the penal
ties which brought about a bloody in
surrection in 1733, costing the lives
of many white planters-, their wives
and children: 'The leader of runaway
slaves shall be pinched three times
with red-hot iron, and then hung. .
" 'Each other runaway slave shall
lose or.e leg, or it ins owner snvii
pardon him shall lose one ear and re
ceive 1-30 stripes.
" 'A slave who runs away for eight
days fhail have 150 stripes;, twelve
weeks, shall lose one leg, and six
months, shall forfeit his life, un
less the owner pardons him with the
loss of one leg.
"A slave who lifts his hand to
strike a white person or threaten
him with violence shall be pinched
and hung, should the white person de
mand it, if not to lose his right hand.'
"In the terrible insurrection one of
the victime was a Judge Soctman,
who was murdered and decapitated in
the presence of his beautiful 12-year
old daughter, and while a council was
being held to determine what should
be done with her the ' child, ' over
whelmed with grief, .entreated, them
to take her life also, to which plea
they gleefully acceded, laying her
mangled body across that of her

New l oi k, Nov. 7. Elections mis
fall will cost $o0.000,000. Such is the
concensus of conservative estimates
by political leaders here. Some place
the figures twice as- high.
Only a small part of this expense
goes toward electing a president and a
vice president. About 75,000 state,
county, city and other offices will be
filled or, in the case of a few states,
have been filled this fall.
Two hundred thousand men and
women are running for office.
Of the fifty millions, about half
will be spent by the candidates and
their supporters and the other half
by the state .and municipal govern
ments in preparing for and holding
the elections and counting the ballot.
In New York state alone the cost
of registering voters and conducting
the elections will be about $2,500,000.
25.000,000 spent in furthering the
campaigns will be divided among post
age, telegraph and telephone service,
advertising, press agent publicity,
speakers' pay and expenses, bands,
rent of halls and theatres, clearical
help, campaign buttons, badges and
banners, rallies and conventions,
printing and engraving, and sums
larce in the aggregate given to the
hundreds of thousands of minor work
ers." It is estimated here the republican
national committee will spend over
$2,000,000 and the democratic national
committee over $1,500,000.
In liiOS the republican national com
mittee s;nt $70,000 for printing.
,.0,(i00 for advertising, over $i0,()00
for campaign lithographs and $10,000
for buttons. This year these items
will be much larger. For one reason,
the cost of almost everything to be
bought has doubled or tripled.
In I'JuS William J. Bryan had his
national treasurer try a plan of solic
iting dollar contributions. This plan
was a failure, because it was found
the cost of getting the dollar ate up
all but a few of the hundred cents.
Cornelius N. Bliss, jr., republican
national treasurer, has been success
ful this year with a campaign for $10
contributions however. This scheme
has increased largely the number of
Wilbur W. Maish, the democratic
national treasurer, has used the
"every member canvass" idea, said to
have been invented originally as a
scheme to ' raise church mortgages.
He has built up a wonderful country
wide organization to carry out the
plan, with local committees every
where. The local committees send
out teams of two men each. A team
outnumbers the democrat attack and
heu?ually capitulates for some sum,
according to his means.

A GOOD HALLOWE'EN
" STORY FROM GULLGM
From Tuesday's Dally.
A mighty good Hallowe'cTi story
comes from the vicinity of Cullom
and the victim of the joke, W. II. Sey
bcrt, takes pleasure in acknowledging
that it was put over on him in good
shape. It seems that W. II. arose as
usual on the morning after Hal
lowe'en, with his hired man, hastened
out to the barn to harness up the
horses for the day's work. As they
enteredr the barn they found it filled
with a fine array of the farming tools
of all description, that required some
time to clear away, and then it was
found that the harness was missing
from its accustomed place. The farm
was searched in the neighborhood of
the barn for the missing harness and
not a trace was to be seen of the long
looked for article. It was finally de
cided that the search was useless and
Mr. Seybert resignedly took up the.
milk pail and started out to do the
milking, and his surprise may be im
agined when, on entering the cow
barn, he discovered one of the placid
eyed bovines all harnessed up and
ready to go. Bill, seeing the joke of
the affair, enjoyed it as much as any
one, and while suspicious of who did
the plotting of the affair appreciates
that it was cleverly carried out. John
McXurlin, who is staying at the Sey
bert home gives the story to the public.
