THE DANISH \vi:sr inuiks
it Thomas. D. W. 1., October 30.
The rr.'.utii of October lias bsen an eventful one
in the hlsto-y of these Elands. On October 29.
IW7. Just four days after Ills majesty King Chrto
tian issued his proclamation to the people ■•' this
town Informing th»-m af the BSSSBSSJ of St. Thomaa
Bssl Ft. John to the United States •' America a
lerrlflf hurrlran- took Bla •. in which three limi
dred liven were lost, mid about seventy-seven ves
sels wen: stranded or wrecked. On October Ri
3571, another frightful harrleajM took place, which
destroyed half the town and killr-d many persons.
On October 2. >■-. an insurrection t>r.>k'- out iwom
the laborers at St. Oats, la arbtca the country
was Ui.J waste, Urn aauMcera* hoataaa were burned
and ttio laara of FrederUtsted or West End was
reduced to ashes. And now in October has come
the news that the Landsthtas has rejected, by a
tie vote oi tiiirty-two to thirty-two, the treaty for
the sale of these Islands to the United Btatoa,
•Anoth»-i October calamity." say the people, who.
■when th" nr.-t ttlegram arrived, on October --■
received it with Incredulity. It was not until later
telegrams brought n* oaaArajatfoa and ■ few
further particulars that they realized that all their
hopes of a brighter future under the Stars and
■Maaa were, utterly qpaubat. And this by the
votes of an octogenarian and a nonagenarian,
whose fossilized brains could not aoaafbly have
prasped what it meant f..r the future of thirty
ihoiisuiid j>eople. One autat move among them, be
laoatttafl with theai to understand how k"< ti Is
their disappointment. To ail classes the transfer
meant the Infusion af new blood, fresh energy,
capital, aear ai.i progressive ideas.
Already mnny saw improvements in every di
rection, •■■! water supply, sanitary arrangements,
Boboal system and especially a high achool for the
BjaMai eaaajaa. But with this unexpected turn of
affairs there is not mui-h more than what *c have
t.i be looked for. We hear that a Liiißiiilaahwi is
to be appointed to investigate tha bmhum of giving
aaaaata aaaiataace to theaa islands. We all know
what BBCa rwmwilMiwnt amount io. and how
Jong they tike t.. «1o anything— so long that many
«if us will have left these Islands or paaaad away.
Viefore anything la aceoaipUabed. We remember
one that came out here Bhortty after the insur
rection hi St. Croix. It* members were enter
tained, and they interviewed all except the right
persons, and they went bobm again. A few com
manders and knights of Dannebrog were made,
and that was the last we heard of the commis

anti-bale party, no one belie them. The fact
Is, such is the ignorance of the majority In Den
mark of our actual condition and wants thut even
with the U-st af intentions they will not he able
to accomplish anything for our benefit.
■a the outlook io very gloomy la Bt. Thaa St.

question as this— one which so greatly ooncerna

SURPRISE OF DOCTORS OVER LONG
BUHEP AND DEATH OF OOBOORAS
The autopsy held yesterday at St. Vincent's
Hospital to determine the cause of the long
trance and death of Nellie Corcoran, who had
been in a coma from October 18 to early yes
terday, failed to give any clew to the causes
that ha.l operated to hold the girl unconseiou*
for so long. No cause for the sleep or death
was found after the most complete examination.
When, after the autopsy. Dr. Theodore Jane
way, the visiting pathologist of St. Vincent's
Hospital, who held the knife, was asked what
tli.» r< suits had been, he said:
"The autopsy glvee us no data from which to
form a oottdttahm as to the cause of the condi
tion that existed during life. A microscopic
examination of the nervous system will be made
He said h»- had no further statement to make,
but a/hen some one said. A remarkable case.
Isn't it?" he replied. "That goea without say
Dr. Haldwin. the house surgeon of St. Vin
cent's Hospital, said:
"The autopsy has shown us nothing. Sec
tions were made of the brain, spinal cord,
heart, stomach and kidneys, and to all appear
ances the girl was In a perfectly healthy con
dition. The microscope may yet show some
cause of her death, but that will take six or
hevea days yet to determine. There were cer
tainly no gross bvtoaa that could have caused
The autopsy. Dr. Baldwin explained, could
tell nothing of the possibility of hypnotism, as
it has no effect on the physical condition of the
brain. That possibility is still left, though the
failure of the attempt made by Dr. Bradshaw,
an hypnoti ■ expert, to arouse her would seem
to have eliminated even that possibility.

AMi GAVE S7O,OOO TO CAMPAIGN.
Bird S. Coler and his father. W. N. Coler. ac
cording to a dispatch from Buffalo In "The Brook
lyn Eagle" last night, failed to keep a pledge made
prior to election to contribute |300,0u0 to the Demo
cratic State Committee, In consideration of Mr.
Coler's nomination. The same authority asserts
that the. Colera together contributed $70,000, and
that the failure to receive the gross amount so serl
ouely crippled the State Committee that It could
not get out the vote In the country districts. It is
said that less than $7;»,000 was received for all pur-
PSSas during the entire campaign at the Hoffman
House headquarters. Democratic county organisa
tions were penniless on Election Day, It is declared,
not having enough money to man the polls. Coun
ties like Krii and Monroe, which expected to re
i.lve liberal allowances from the State Committee,
•lid not get anything. Much of the opposition to
Coler's nomination at the Saratoga convenUoa
was* allayed hy the statement on the part of the
Hill men that the Colers and their friends would
contribute $300,000 to the StutH Committee, and that
this would enable the country Democrats to re
build their shattered machines. "The Eagle's"
■ ••: r. apondent says:
Another candidate for nomtnatioa offered at the

estimated at $15,000. The balance of the fund was

Committee and Chairman John N. c r!l!>le of the
executh •■ committee.
When Mr. Coler was asked yesterday about his
alleged pledge to contribute 5300.0U0 to the Btat«
Committee, he said It whs all nonsense.
The Tribune the week before election told of the
strenuous efforts of the Hill men to raise enough
money to send $5" to every election district up th*.

ferred charges have for several years been dis
criminating against the Chicago market in favor
of South St. Paul. South Omaha. St. Joseph and

in a widening of the May premium. New-York to
day reported l!o luad.i of wheat for export and said
the Continental demand was better. The flour
news was not so strong. The advance to-day was
apparently on the export situation. This explains
why Minneapolis and St. Louis were lower, and
Chicago. Duluth and Kew-Tork higher. Duluth
