of Bath and Durham hare Insisted upon
their right to support the crown on the
king's head after coronation, an assistance

Party Influenced the
COPENHAGEN, March 29 in an Inter
view with a representative of the Associated
Press on the subject of Congressman
Richardson's resolution for the appoint
ment of a committee to investigate a charge
made by Captain Christmas, in connection
with the sale of the Danish West Indies, a
high Danish official says:
Neither Christmas nor Gron were ever
given authority to negotiate tor the sale
of the West Indies. They never negotiated
with Washington and have In no way In
fluenced the negotiations. The negotiations
were conducted through Ijiurlie ri. Swen
son, the I'nlted States minister here, and
Constantlne Urun, the Danish minister at
Washington. The Danish government is
under no obligation to any private persons
in connection with the sale. Hence no
commission Is due or will be paid.
The alleged scandal Is the result of a
quarrel between Christmas and Oron. Tre
latter claimed he effected the sale and
that, hence, he wanted a commission.
Christmas made a similar claim, accom-
Banled by a confidential report to the
lanlsh government, containing statements
regarding bribery, etc., as recently pub
lished In Washington.
Gron Becomes Desperate.
Most of the report was printed by the
Danish press some time ago. Gron, seeing
It was hopeless to expect a commission,
started for Washington with Christmas'
report In his pocket, boasting to the anti
sale advocates here that he would be re
venged by influencing congress to decline
to pass the appropriation for the purchase
of the islands.
Before the commencement of the negotia
tions, Christmas and Gron actually tried
to become connected with the matter, as
agents. The then premier. Dr. Horrlng,
gave them some encouragement and private
parties favoring the sale furnished small
amounts for their traveling expenses. Dr.
Horrlng waa indiscreet. He discussed a
commission, but bribery was not suggested.
He and the other parties speedily disco -ered
that tbev hikd heen tmnosed udoii and broke
off their connection with Christmas and
Gron, considering them to be without In
fluence. Christmas haa now been forced to
declare that his report ot bribery waa raise.

day a declaration under oath that no mem

Miss Stone I staying at a frlend'a house,

a amall army ot reportera who had been
acourlng London In search of her. While
ah talked, Misa Stone constantly played
with her umbrella and started nervously at
any noise. Th lines in ber face show the
anxiety she ba gone through.
Ray Stannard Baker, who brought Misa
Stone from Sslonlra to London, said to th
representative of the Associated Press:
The interest Miss Stone created was ex

the crowda waiting at the station pressed
around the car in the hope of seeing Mis
Stone. Some of the newspaper men came

Until we got to Servla the most stringent
precautions were taken by the officials to
prevent a repetition of the kidnaping.
One of the most Interesting parting
scenes was the baptism of the Tsllka baby
last Sunday. The ceremony took place In
Mr. Houses' little Bulgarian chapel at Sa

the baby was named the Belgian equiva
