lie took his post there 'last July
immediately after he married Aliss
Marie Bennewitz here. He was a
first lieutenant in the 18th infantry
ana was one of the first American
officers to reach France. He was
wounded several times. -'
As government attorney, Mr. Kcy
ser is laying the foundation of Amer
ican law in the primitive country,
where he is stationed. Here are
excerpts from his letter.
"I was appointed to prosecute two
men for inurder in St.- Thomas and
tried them under the Danish law,
ii e., in St. Thomas, and got one of
them sentenced to tleath. Under the
law, such a case must be appealed,
so now we have to take the case to
the Third circuit at Philadelphia.
There, has ..been no case up there
yet .from here and I am anxious to
steow they will handle it when it
Conies before them.
, "i "Then at St. Croix we are endeav
oring to establish the American
courts to replace the old system. Now
believe me. there is certainly a lot
of . detail work in connection with
that breaking in clerk, sheriff, bail
(jjtfj court reporter and all that. We
..are all new people to the work and
the first man we had as judge was
such a complete failure that all the
work was on me, and I had to ad
vise the clerk what to put in the
journal, dockets, etc., and what
hooks to get and how to keep them,
so that I feel as though I am learn
ing something. Just stop andjhink
how.- you would go about starting
an office like-Bob Smith's and what
you know of the detail work of the
place. . One does not realize when
atJ those things are going along all
rryrht, what work there is in start
ing them elsewhere.
The islands are certainly beauti
fafc St. Thomas, where the capital
JSJsjtuated has only one. town and
irs "-chief interest is its wonderful
lia&or. The island is too hilly for
rfjuch cultivation, but there are one
mMwo Bood-sized estates on it. St. i
John is just an island with only
3,000 population with about 25 whites.
St.' Thomas has about 10,00a with
about 500 whites. - Sw Croix -is 4he
largest of the f-group .and has no
