Islanders Looking Forward 'With
: Great Hopes to Future Develop
ments in St. Thomas Harbor.
' ST. THOMAS, Virgin Islands. July 5.
t (Correspondence of the Associated
Press.) These islands have been ma
terially developed in some ways since
they were purchased by the United
States from Denmark less than two
years ago. Now that peace has come
the islanders are looking forward with
great hopes of further developments
In the future especially with regard
to the harbor of St. Thomas.
The islands are under the control of
the navy department and the adminis
tration of the naval officers and their
relations with the local legislature,
called the colonial council, have won
the friendship of the inhabitants. The
revenues of the islands are not suf
ficient to meet their requirements and
the navy department has appropriated
annually $00,000 for public works and
the general upkeep of affairs. Coupled
with the frequent visits of American
money by the forces stationed on the
Jslands, the naval authorities have en
deavored to give aid in every way.

girls are being trained as nurses. A
Btart has been made in teaching useful
-professions to pupils of the public
schools. Better sanitary conditions and
h. proper water supply are being furn

Oman, has held receptions to which all
classes have attended. The people
have American soda fountains and
restaurants and the national game of
.baseball has supplanted the English
game of cricket. There are three bands
composed solely of natives. War-time
prohibition is in force.
l.ivelv Interest Is Shown.
Generally the islanders are showing
s. lively interest in American Ideas and
customs. ISvidence of this is the en
thusiastic celebration of such national
.holidays as Decoration day and Inde
pendence day when the people join
with the authorities in patriotic ex
ercises such as saluting the flag, pa
rades and other celebrations unknown
here before.
The same laws and methods of gov
Verning the islands as under the Dan
ish regime still exist. Lack of change
-In this respect is attributed to the
war. There is some dissatisfaction and
agitation among local political as
pirants who want American laws and
customs to be extended to the islands.
More conservative men do not share
"in this agitation but trust that the
riecessary changes will be made in

HONOLULU, T. H., July 14. (Spe

long-standing grievance of local stock

poor service of the present cable. A
few days ago the cable company an

business, commercial messages would
be delivered a day late. This limit in
creased to 30 hours, then to 36 hours,
and recently the messages have been
two and three days late.

Attorney-General Sees Little Hope
for Change in Islands.
HONOLULU, T. H.. July 18. (Spe
cial.) The possibility of Hawaii becoming-
"wet" again that is, legally
"wet" is remote, indeed, according to
Harry Irwin, attorney-general for the
territory. A clause in the Sbeppard bill
under "which the islands became "bone
dry" provides that two years subse
quent to the signing of the treaty of
peace 20 per cent of the voters may pe
tition for a repeal of the measure.
Attorney-General Irwin believes that
the two-year clause became null and
void when three-fourths 'of the states
of the Union ratified the constitu
tional amendment for national prohibi
tion after the first of the year. There
is a possibility that Hawaii may become
wet to the extent or beer and lisrht
wine until the constitutional amend
ment goes into effect.
It has been reported that Prince J. K.
Kalantaniole, delegate Jo congress for
Hawaii, may ask congress to let down
the bars here from the time that the
wartime prohibition statue is discarded
until January 1 of next year.
Standing Timber Escapes Damage
by Forest Fires.

(Special.) With its some ::0,000. 000.000
feet of timber in tributary territory.
Cottage Grove has been peculiarly for
tunate thus far this year In regard to
forest fires. While destructive confla
grations have been raging elsewhere,
very little of the vast body of standing
timber in this section has been threat
ened. The only bad fire has been in the
Bohemia district, where every year
lightning sets the woods afire. Only
in the past day or two have the flames
reached the tops of the trees, which is
necessary before damage results. For

Forestry officials, both government
and state, report that high winds the
last two days have fanned the forest

Is directed to the war department and
asks that sufficient troops be sent to
cope with the situation.

Sky Rocket Cost of Living Regarded
as Most Pressing Problem.
Breaking Point ared.
NEW YORK. July 28. Price-fixing
commissions by the government ars the
only remedy for profiteering in the ne
cessities of life, in the opinion of Will-
lam Harmon Black, formerly vice
chairman of the war labor board, who
sailed today for England and France.
He declared that even men who in
tended to be fair had been forced into
exactions not warranted by the situa
"The pressing problem." he said, "is
the skyrocket cost of living. It is all
paid by the ultimate consumer. The
country believes that nearly everybody
who can Is profiteering. Nearly every
man is raising the price of everything
he sells. If nothing is dona to check
this abnormal Inflation in prices, the
stage will finally be reached where
there will be a breaking point to re
lieve the tension."
Suggesting the remedy of price-fix
ing commissions, Mr. Black said as far
as the power of the government to cre
ate such commission was concerned,
I'the supreme court which read 'the
rule of reason' Into the Sherman act
could read fair prices Into a decision
which would validate an act creating
a price-fixing commission."
He pointed out that the war labor
board had fgixed the prices of labor
and that the price of wheat had been
fixed and maintained that there was
no difference In principle in his plan.
If the federal government was found
not to have jurisdiction over prices of
production within the states, Mr. Black
propose dthat each commonwealth ap
point a commission to regulate prices
within its borders.
As to the composition of such com
missions. Mr. Btack held that the unor
ganized consumer should be represent
ed, "especially that part of the con
sumers who do not produce and who
have most bitterly felt the pinch." He
suggested that each commission should
be composed of a laborer, a capitalist.
a railroad man. a steamship avian, a
farmer or miner, a manufacturer and
a consumer and should Include one
woman member.
Mr. Black did not say whether he
had submitted his plan to the presl

Marriages to Be Prohibited by Army
Order Even After Treaty Is
Ratified, Is Report.
COBLENZ, July 26. (By tne Asso
ciated Press.) Reports of marriages
between American soldiers and CJerman
girls have been received at headquar
ters from various parts of the occupied
area durlna- the past few days, but as
yet no charges have been filed against
any of the men. It Is believed most
of the marriages were due to misunder
standings regarding the anti-f raternl
satlon regulations.
A week before the treaty waa signed,
several of the chaplains through a mis
understanding, informed the soldiers
that marrlaices were permissible as
soon as the Uermans accepted the peace
terms. Officers say that a number of
marriages took place before this belief
was corrected by a special order from
headquarters calling attention of of
ficers and men to the fact that until
the United States ratified the treaty
Germany and America technically were
at war and the regulation prohibiting
fraternisation was still In force.
At headquarters It Is said that even
nffr the l"nlted Stale, rxtlfirs the
treaty marriages with German girls
will ba prohibited by an army order.
