NEW YOKK, Jan. 2. Interest has been
arouFed by the announcement contained
in the cable message from Copenhagen,
Denmark, that negotiations for the sale
of the Dutch West Indies to the United
States may soon be completed. Captain
Christmas, of the Danish toyal navy, hav
ing obtained the support of several ciblnet
officers in the undertaking.
Carl Fischer Hatifcen, a Danish l.nvjer.
who lives in t West Foity-scventh Street,
this citj, and Is a frienrt 01 capiain
Christmas,, is taking part in the arrange
ments. He fraid in an Interview
"As is generally known, the first ncgo
tiationb tor the sale of the islands to the
United States began in 1SC7. They were
not consummated, and nothing more w.s
done in- that direction until the last jcar
of President Cleveland's Administration. I
saw the Prewdent and Senator Lodge upon
the biibjeU at that time at the direction
of interested persons in Denmark, but the
Venezuelan trouble intervened.
"bout a jear and a half aftei President
McKinlev assumed office I called upon him
and Secretary Sherman It was bMlsved
that the United States would at that time
have paia SS.C0O.000 Tor the islands, and
this ivas the price lived. The war with
Spain intervened, and again eoii-ideration
of the subject ceased.
" t the ccnclu&ion of the war the United
States had gamed Poito Hico. There was,
therefore, lei-s need than before for this
eountrv to acquire the Danish West Indies.
Denmark, however, had 1.0 desire to retain
the islands, as the annual expense of the
colonv to the home government amounts to
about S115.OU0. while there is no torre
sp, nding levonue. owing to the fact that
there is no longer as much impoitation tf
sugar from St Croiv as es.uted before beet
sugar was manufactured in Kurope.
'Capt. V von Chustmas Dirdinck-Holm-feld
(this is Captain Christmas full name)
was oidcied to visit the islands to ascer
tain the views of the Danish residents up
on the subject of a sale foi they have no
right to vote upon the question He made
three vifits during the jivi just passed and
found complete willingiuss that the isl
ands bhould pass under the merican flag
"Then Captain Christmas went to Wash
ington for the purpose or tvplaimng to
President McKinley the course taken by
the Danish Government and informing him
that the islands could 1) aonilirod for
?..0tm.(K,0. explaining that Denmark could
1101 for various reasons, take the initiative
111 oftenng the islands to this country ofli
fiallv at this time.
Captain Chiifatmns was requested by
Seentary Hay to return to Copenhagen and
obtain from his government more definite
instructions. He was asked to stop in
London and call upon Secretary White, of
the United States Legation, who would be
directed to accompany him to Copenhagen
for the purpose of conferring with officials
of the DanMi Government Owing to ill
ness in Mr Whiie'b family however, the
Seorntarv was unable to go
"Captain Christmas proceeded alone to
Copenhagen and reported to his govern
ment the result of his visit Last week he
was ordered to return to Washington, and
expects to sail fiom Hamburg for New

them is startlingly good, all proved suffi

bits in Will Cressv's "Adam the Second,"

their vehicle, "Dollars and Dogs," what
they gain in histi Ionic ability "Mrs. Wil

as a farce, becomes a musical melange,
and ends as a sidewalk conversation. Mr.

which brought laughter from the assem

to the story of his lovemaking, but pre
faces that portion of his monologue with
ome bright jokes and an excellent parody
on "I'd Leave My Happv Home for You."
