Capt. Alex. A Lowande is Captain of
the 43rd. Precinct Police Dept. of New

ils what we cail etficient handiing of mail,
and we veniure io say that in all proba
bility Frederiksted had its mail as early
as it the boat had docked there. Yester
day’s experience also atforded us tne op
portunity of noting that the Frederik
sted mail whici is always Dboasted
as b:yng such a lot was but forty
two bags, Christlansied thus having
over 50% more. We take a lively inter
est in the mails and the mail service
because we feel that for some reason
or ather we never get it early enough
via ['rederiksted which we do not be
lieve to be zpy fault or the postmasier
there, and this is why we took pains
to see how it would work here yester
terday. Unfortunately the publie, most
ly children, behaved so abominably that
general de iverv had to be suspended
here yesterday afterrcon. The post
master asks to mention that in view
of the faet that through ~their con
duct nunerous pa rons are obstructed
and work held vp, mail will be delivered
to children 2t the discretion of the
Postmaster only upon written order
from the parties for whom they call.

Correspondence
Editor St. Croix Avis.
Dear Sir.—
Kindly allow me some of your pre
cious space to comment a little on Mr.
Kitehen’s '‘jocular dishes’’, for really,
with but few items which may be worth
commnient; the greater part can heartily
be laughed at.
We are now in the hands of the ‘‘Re
publican party’’, and from mv sound ex
perience they are impetuous and sharp
in action and not wanting in means for
the great outlay whenever the right
*‘idea’’ has been advanced.
The $25,000.000 which was paid for the
isilands by the Democratic party, under
brave ex President Wilson, has been a
big annuyance to many of the party, such
as the Kitchen type; but to those Ameri
cans of the republican party whose great
“‘desire’’ it always was to own the Dan
ish islands, and whose “‘desirel’ is now
actually fulfilled; it will be a great plea
sure to do all they can during the running
years tor tne betterment of the islands
and the fulfillmenrt ot a “promise’’ made
by them many years ago, which 1 will
repreduce later, :
And is the noble little Denmark hus
banding ali this money ? No. Would.
that some one who is better able than
me, cculd come forward andsgive a close
figure of the thousands of dollars out of
those millions, which are gladiy and free
ly given out monthly to those worthy
of it in the islands by Denmark.
And is this all that Denmark is doing
