Pnnt,nrfl quito n lot of small iilnnds
that belong to tho United Hlntoi.
Most of them nro from 1000 to
'2000 miles to tho south and south
west of Hawaii. Sotno of thorn
aro near tho Gilbort archipelago,
nndthoro is a cousldorablo cIub
tor just about tho lesser distanco
mentioned aud directly south of
the Hawaiian group, including
Amorica, Christmas, Pal my roe,
and other islands of largo sizo.
ChristmitB Island is about thirty
iivo miles long. It got its naino
originally from tho fact that tho
famous Captain Cook stopped
thero on Christmas day for the
purpose of observing an pclipn.
It is au atoll or ring,of coral foru.i
tiou, enclosing n lagoon of water
that has become so salty thiou'h
evaporation as to bo a veritable
briuo. Fishes thrown over tho
reef by storms nro pickled in it,
aud remain perfectly preserved
and good to eat for mouths.
These isles of the Pacific be
longing to Uncle Sam number
sixty in all. They have all been
annexed to tho United States
under an Act of Congress, which
became a law August 18, 185G.
This law, whioh remains in force
today, declares that whenever any
citizen of the United States pliall
discover a deposit of guauo on
any island, rock or key, not with
in tho lawful jurisdiction of any
other government, ho shall be at
liberty fo takH peaceable puhs
siou thereof, and such island, rock
or key may, at the discretion of
tho President, bo considered as
appertaining to tho United States.
Tho discovorer is required to givo
due notice to the Department of
State, with affidavits, describing
the islaud aud showing that pos
session of the same has been
taken in tho name of this country.
Ho is obliged at tho same timo to
give a bond, which is filed in tho
Tin. discoverer, nt Ihu p'.oasuro
of Congress, enjoys tho exclusive
right to occupy his island for the
purposo of obtaining fiinno, and
for this product he is allowed to
charge only a certain fixed prico
namoly, $8 a ton for guano de
livered nt the ship's side, or $4 a
ton for tho privilege of digging it
where it lies. Furthermore, he
jives a guarantee by his bond to
deliver tho guauo only to citizens
of the United Statep, nnd to bo
used in the United States. The
Inw provides, curiously enough,
that all offenses and crimes ou
such islands by persons who may
land theioon, or in waters ndja
cent, shall bo deemed as commit
ted on the high seas, ou board a
merchant ship of the United
States, and shall be punished ac
cordingly. The President is au
thorized to use tho laud and naval
forces of tlio United States to pro
tect tho rights of the discovorer or
Hut Unolo Sam's ocean empire
includes n great many islands of
far greater importance than the
guano isles referred to. Iu Ber
ing Sea there are several very
largo islands, benides the little
Prihylov group to whioh tho fur
Beals resort. This couutry owns
the entire chain of Aleutian isl
ands, which separate tho Bering
Sea from tho North Pacific. Tho
inhabitants of these islands,called
Aleuts, aro particularly intelli
gent, muoh more civilized than
the Eskimo, and bear a close re
semblance ohysically to tho Jap
anese. Off the coast of southern
Alaska is a group of islands of
great size, on some of which livo
tho Thlinkot Indians. These are
the most artistic savages in tho
world, being skilled wood carvers.
Off the coast of southern Califor
nia is the Santa Barbara group,
comprising a number of large
