' SENATE VOTES; TO
- BUY DANE INDIES
U. . S. . Upper House Ratifies
- f Treaty Providing; for pur
chase of Islands,
NOREIS AMENDMltfTT LOST
; J Washington, Sept 8. The treaty
providing for the purchase from Den
mark of the Danish West Indies for
$25,000,000 was ratified by the sen-
, ate last night There was no roll call
and less than half-a dozen senators,
including, Senators Norris, Jones and
' Clapp. voted against it,
' The amendment Ify Senator, Norris
to reduce the purchase price trora
$25,000,!p0 to $10,000,000 was defeated
. by an overwhelming vote, and the
I treaty was approved -just as it was
'' signed by Secretary Lansing and Min
HsterBruh in August. ' , ''
Deal on Long Time,
Negotiations for the purchase of-
tne islands nave been in progress m-
termittently for halfa century. Be
cause of their strategic value, particu
larly since the construction of the
' Panama canal, the American govern
vment being anxious to acquire them
- not only with a view to establishing
a- naval base there, but to prevent
' the islands from falling into the
. hands of any foreign power. Ger
man interference was credited with
' blocking; negotiations on the subieot
in 1902, after the. United States sen
ate had ratified a treaty. , .
, In Denmark the treaty has de
"veloped'a political crisis that may re
sult in a new general election pf
me'mbeYs of Parliament After a bit
ter fight the upper house adopted
" a resolution notifying the cabinet-that
it was willing Parliament should be
'dissolved and a general election held
unless sale of the islands iould be
postponed until after the European
war. V i
St. Thomas and St. Johnsare'a part
of the virgin.Jslands; so named by
Christopher Columbus. St. Thomas
lies about thirty-six miles east of
' Porto Rico," with St John immediately
'to the eastward. Si Croix,, the largest
of the three, is situated about forty
miles south of St. Thomas, in the
Caribbean ! Sea. St. Thomas, an im-
"Tportant caalingstation and depot gf
.. trade, with,, ah excellent harbor, is
twelve miles long east ami west and
- from one to three miles broati. The
'only article of export is bay rum.
; v vvCycione Refuge. '
St John is eight miles long, east
andwest, and of irregular breadth.
Its area is about forty square miles.
It" occupiesran excellent position near
", St. Thomas and its port or coral
on the east side -is said to be the
best harbor, of refuge from cyclones
in tfie Antilles during cyclones. r
- St. Croix, also named by, Columbus,
.is nineteen miles, long, of irregular
' breadth and contains 51,890 acres,, of
which over 16,000 acres are devoted
to the cultivation of sugar. Christian
'Sted,' commonly called the-basin, is
' the capital "city of the Danish West
Indies and' is situated at the head
ofan inlet on the north side of St.
, Croix.' These are harbors at the,
capital and at Frederickstead, is the I
; ' The islands are inhabited mostly by
free negroes,, engaged in the cultiva
tion of sugar cane. - ,
