Most of the'  supplies are imported from the  United States and the citizens  believe that if the islands are  sold to that country the.se neces-,  sities would be imported free of  'duty. They also argue that it  would be of great advantage to  land their fish in the American  market free. ,       ,    ���  The* annexation sentiment,  however, is by ho means unaini-'  mous, and the campaign has  been very heated,, several duels  having been fought on account  of it. - ���      '  WAR CANNOT BE AVERTED.
