A trenU' for the sale of these Mantis to the t'liitefl
States for $5,000,000 was signed in 1002, but was rejected
by the Danish landsthing. A revions treaty for their
sale in 1807 was rejected by the United .States senate.
Negotiations were again reported pending when the Euro
pean war broke. (Ternianv was then seeking their pur
chase to secure coaling stations and naval bases' in the Car
ibbean and their acquisition is sought by the Tinted States
to prevent future complications.
The Danish West Indies lie -10 miles east of Porto Rieo
and consist of three small islands St. Thomas, St. (Vuix
or Santa Cruz and St. John with a total area of 1H8
square miles. Their population is 80,000. Tho foreign
trade of the islands is about $1110,000, with imports
slightly exceeding exports.
St. Thomas is 111 miles long and varies in width from
1 to '1 miles, with an area of Ull square miles. It consists
of a single mountain ridge, the peaks of a submerged
range, culminating in West mountain, 1555 feet elevation.
The climate is tropical, modified by sea breezes. Hurri
canes and earthquakes are frequent. The only town is
Charlotte Amalie, with a population of 85-10. Tt boasts
of the finest harbor in the West Jndies, n land-locked
basin, three-quarters of a mile across, entered by a narrow
channel only 1)00 yards wide. The depth' of water in the
harbor is from 27 to 36 feet.
This island was once the great distributing center of
iiiu n rai iiiuic.i. uiiiie sugar is grown, me products
being aloes, fibrous plants and fruit, its chief importance
now is as a coaling station. The population of the island
is J i.uuu, mostly negroes. It was discovered by Columbus
in 1'IOU, first colonized by the Dutch in 1057, then bv the
British in .1(507, nnd in 1(571 paused under Danish control.
During European wars of the eighteenth eenturv the neu

St. John lies four miles east of St. Thomas, is ten miles
long mid two mid one-halt miles wide, with an area of
twent3'-one square miles. Jt is a mass of ruirired moun
tains. It is well watered and most fertile, but has little
commerce. In Coral bay it possesses the best harbor of
reiuge in ino amines.
St. Croix is the largest island of the three and lies
sixty-five miles southeast of Porto Rieo. ft is twenty-two
miles long and from one to six miles in width, with a doii-
ulation ol 18,500, mostly negroes. It is mountainous, but
