"In view of the fact that the sugar
plantations are paying large
dividends, the demands of the laborers
that they be paid $22.50 per
month seems reasonable. I believe
that labor should have a just proportion
of the wealth it creates."

"We have lots of children growing
up in these Islands who should
furnish a source of labor for the
industries, and I think we should
give them special attention," said
Mr. Damon this morning, in speaking
of the plans he has in mind.
"What are these children to do?
They are the future citizens of the
country. There are not white-shirt

to keep the children of the schools
interested in agriculture. We
must look out for our own. We
want the children to grow up industrious
and ready to do the work
that is right here at hand in the
country. It will help everybody
and strengthen the character of our
citizenship more than we can now
"I think that the sugar plantation

"7. Sixteen flights of stairs extend
from the coping to the floor.
This number is liberal in order
that the workmen may enter and
leave the dry-dock with expedition.
An idea of the depth of the dock
is gained from the fact that it will
take sixty-five steps to go from the
floor to the coping. The stairways
have been so designed that the
altars are not interrupted, but pass
around the stairs with slightly reduced
width. The total amount of
concrete to be used in the dock
is approximately 120,000 cubic
"If I were to give this apple,"
said the Hon. Joseph Choate to a
little miss of whom he was very
fond, "I should simply say, 'I give
you this apple'; but should the
transaction be intrusted to a lawyer
to put in writing he would"say :
'I hereby give, grant and convey to
you all my interest, right, title and
advantage of and in said apple, together
with its rind, skin, juice,
pulp and pits and all rights and advantages
therein, with full power to
bite, suck or otherwise cat the

the rind, juice, pulp or pits, anything
hereinbefore, or in any other
deed or deeds, instruments of any
nature or kind whatsoever, to the
contrary in anywise notwithstanding."
