Washington, April io.-Such n
marked improvement in conditions
ulong the Mexican border has lieon
reported by den. Fullarton that til io
War Department now is considering
drawing upon some of (he troops sta
tioned in Texas to strengthen tho
ever-lengthening line of communica
tion of the expedition seeking Villa.
Many alarming rumors have been dis
posed of and the border situation
generally ts said to be quieter than
heretofore, but tho plan is not to dis
turb the garrisons or patrol hi New
Mexico or Arizona for the present.
Army olllcials stated to-night that
from now on infantry will be used to
reinforce the communication lines,
tihe cavalry being kept at the front
for the actual work of running down

authorities after one of the soldiers
had been killed by a Ranger attempt

Smith, of this State.
Newberry, April 10.-MTB. Kate
Kinar'd Smith, widow of Bishop A.
Coke Smith, received a telegram Sat
urday frqm Norfolk, Va., bringing the
news of the drowning of her son, Ki
nard Smith, In Honduras, March 26.
The Intelligence had been cabled to
Norfolk, 'Mrs. Smith's home. The de
lay in the news was due, it is thought
to tho fact that the deajt/h occurred tn
try, far rr?m towns- or cities. He was
advil engineer, just 21 years old, and
wa? in Central America with a party
of engineers laying out tho line for a
railroad to be constructed through

ter, Miss Ki'tty Smith, and her son,
Jack Smith, has been at her old
home in Newberry for a year or more,
carltig for her aged mother, Mrs.
Kin a rd, Hie widow of the late Cen.
H. H. Klnard, after whom the young
man was named.
Tho telegram to Mrs. Smith say?
the body of her son was recovered
and was buried in Honduras. Much |
sympathy ls felt for Mrs. Smith in j
this city of her birth, where she spent
the early years of her life and has so
many relatives and friends. This is
the second son lost to her hy violent
death, one son having been acciden
tally killed while hunting near Vir
ginia Beach, Va., about 20 years ago.
German Reply Will Disavow.

note in response to tho inquiries of
the American government regarding
the chnnnel steamer Sussex and the
steamers Englishman, Manchester
Engineer, Eagle Point and Berwind
vale will be transmitted to the Amer
ican embassy to-night or Tuesday
The nole declares, ns previously
cabled, that thc reports of thc com
manders of submarines which might
possibly have been involved in an at
tack on the Sussex make it abso
lutely certain that the Sussex was not
destroyed by a Gorman torpedo.
Likewise Germany denies respon
sibility for the sinking of the other
steamers, evidence having been nd
duc.ed at the Investigation to show
that no blame attached to Germany.

ment of shoes, hats, uniforms, sweat
ers, and other wearing apparel, val
ued at $100,000, was forwarded
south along the American line of

clothing went a shipment of approx
imately a quarter of a million dollars
in Mexican gold and silver coln to be
used in paying tho wages of the sol
