county. Advertisements have been inserted
in the county papers, calling
attention to the examinations for these
scholarships. I have thought that it
might be helpful to some of the young
men and young women, who are contemplating
making application for
these scholarships, to get and print
a statement of the requirements and
worth of the scholarships, which are j
to be offered in this county this year.

ships at Clemson, Winthrop and the
College of Charleston, a scholarship i

of trustees, and also the president
of the university, requesting a brief
statement of the requirements and
worth of the scholarship in the university,
but have not heard from them, j
.As the law was heretofore, this was a j
(scholarship in the school of pedagogy
and was worth $100, but the laws havej
changed so frequently that I do not
? know whether it is the same this year
or not, and the acts have not been
printed yet for 1912.
I have requested a statement from
the presidents of the various State in
" stitutions as to the requirements and j
worth of the scholarships, and as 10
which ones were open for this county
this year. I have heard from Presi*
dent Riggs, of Clemson, and President
Johnson, of Winthrop, giving the desired
information. As stated, I have
not been able to get the information
from the university. The examinations
for the various scholarships will be
held on July 5 for Winthrop and on
July 12 for Clemson and for the Col- j
lege of Charleston on July 15.
Commandant O. J. Bond, of the j
Citadel academy, writes that there will j
be no vacancy in that institution for j
Newberry county for this year.
Any young women or young gentlemen,
who have any idea of applying I
for any of these scholarships and de>
sire any information, if they will call
on me, or write me, I will be pleased
to aid them in any way in my power.
I will be pleased if the county pape* s
will carry this statement, and also
tho following- in reeard to the scholar- ;
The College of Charleston is not a i
State institution, but offers this one I
scholarship to some young man, who
may desire to take advantage of it,
for each county.

U. S. MARINES ARE
RUSHED INTO CUBA
GOMEZ ADMITS INABILITY TO
Four Battleships Leave Key West for
Washington, June 5.?Frank confession
of President Gomez that he was
unable to meet the demands of the
large plantation owners in Eastern
Cuba for adequate guards against the
marauders and insurrectos, was the
factor that today prompted Capt. Kline,;1
commanding- the United States naval
station at Guantanamo, to dispatch;
nearly half of his available force of;
marines into the interior of Cuba. His
action gave the signal for the departure
from Key West to Guantanamo
of half of the second squadron of the
Atlantic fleet, which had been lying
at anchor at Key West for the last
The facts, as disclosed at the State
department, are that several of the
large American, British, French and
Spanish companies operating plantations
and mines in Eastern Cuba, telegraphed
the Cuban government, i
throus:M the Alcade. of Guantanamo, a
demand for 100 regular -troops for
each of their mills and fifty for each
of their cane fields. In reply President
Gomez pointed out that a com-,
pliance would require the use of 1,250
of his best troops and he could not,
spare them. j
Meanwhile, complaints multiplied,
the situation in Guantanamo was becoming
more alarming and the Guantanamo
Sugar company had definite
information tnat tne reDeis intenaea
to destory one or more of the foreign
Capt. Kline, judging that the gravity
of the situation demanded the use of
American guards, this morning sent
450 of his marines from the naval sta- j
tion by boat up Guantanamo Bay to
a landing place near Caimanera, the
terminus of the railway running up to!
the city of Guantanamo, fifteen miles!
The gur.boat Paducah, about the
same time, reported the situation at!
Santiago as critical, which determined i
Capt Kline to call upon the navy department
for more marines. Accord- i
ingly, Admiral Osterhaus promptly j
dispatched from Key West to Guan-: (
tanamo the fourth division of the At-:
lantic fleet, comprising the battleships
Ohio. Missouri, Mississippi and Min
nesota. They are under comand of
Rear Admiral Usher, who, by virtue j
of his superior rank, will assume com- I
mand at Guantanamo, when he arrives ;1
there Friday morning.
Admiral Usher can easily land 1,200 :
marines and blue jackets, which force,
with the marines and sailors available
for landing parties, would make a for-1
midable little army of about 3,000 men.! 1
If this force is not sufficient, Admiral1
Osterhaus's remaining four vessels |!
mav be called uDon for further levies.!
For the present it is the policy of the j
State department to maintain the third i
division of the fleet at Key West to !
guard against any uprising in Havana.!
Free to Pursue Rebels.
In one way the distribution of- the j
American marines as plantation
guards will serve to test the rtal pur-;
pose of the Cuban government. It is
calculated that Gen. Monteagudo's
troops, being relieved in large part
from the onerous duty of guarding
plantations, will no longer have excuse
for failing to move immediately
and relentlessly upon the insurgent
There is grave intimation in recent
tragedies that this may bcome an international
duty if the Cuban governmnt
longer delays action. Minister
Beaupre today reported a case of horrible
atrocity which occurred yesterday
near Saviga, in Oriente, which is
believed to be only one of many similar
His information, derived directly
from the Cuban secretary of state, was
to the effect that a band of negroes
entered the house of a formr white
official of prominence, tied him and
his son and outraged his wfe and two
young daughters before his eyes. The
son was Kinea in coia Diooa wmie endeavoring
to break his bonds and rescue
his mother and sisters.
The army continues to rather hun- .
grilv watch the unfolding of events in .
Cuba. Lying on Gen. Wood's desk are .
the messages which, if released, would .
send an army division into Cuba within
a week or ten days. But that sit- i
uation has existed for three months ;
and is only illustrative of careful pre- ;
paration that has been made by the
general staff. <
