General Villa was elated beyond
measure, and when he took posses

no time in calling up the office of tho '
Federal commander, General Refugio
Velnsco. An officer of the latter's staff
answered the call.

WaahlnRton. March 21.-The bat
tle of Torreon will be the turning I
point in the Mexicali revolution, in thc |
opinion of high administration offi
cials. Little official information to
day as to the prollihlrtary skirmishes
was at hand, but it li believed that
within a few days a battle will have ?
been fought which wilMn?jcate clearly
the relative strength of tho, constitu
tionalist cause.

spectively, in official clrcl?s here is
taken to mean that the British gov
ernment Is cooperating with the Uni
ted States in efforts to find , a peace- .
ful settlement.
Discussions among Constitutional
ists here of the possibility that Gen
eral Huerta would rottre th favor of ? '
Senor Portillo developed probability,
that he would be acceptable to. the ,
constitutionalists becausce of his af
filiation with the clerical party. .
Mr. O'Shaughnessy expects to re- \
tum to Mexico City in a few days, ac- ?
cording to his dispatches to the state
department. His telegrams make:
mention of his 111 health, but'them
is no suggestion, according to' Mr. j(
Bryan ot, any contemplated resigna- ,
tlon. Retirement of Mr. O.Sbaugh-l
ncssuy at this time would oe diplomat
ically embarrassing, because to send J
another charge d'affaira to Mexico in-'
his place might involve a recognition
of the Huerta government |
The trip of Rear Ar-'ral Fletcher

the officials here but geaerally lt is,

Denton was stabbed but does not very
clearly establish, lt is believed, whff
actually killed Benton.
That Major Fierro will be charged
with the crime and punished is the
exp .'elation of many Mexicans here.

tenant Von La Valette Saint George,
of the 988 German Infantry regiment,
today was sentenced to thirty months
imprisonment in a fortress for klll
ps Lieut. Haage in a duel February
26. Hs was also dismissed from tho
army.
. The court found that the prisoner,
by his conduct had provoked the duel
and had gravely wronged the honor
of Lieutenant Haaere.
Thc severe ?5utGi.ce imposod on
lieutenant Von La Valette Saint
George is the first really severe blow
delivered against duelling among ar
my officers. The court, by its judg
ment, has virtually given notice that
officers who wrong the family honor
of fellow officers are not to be treated
as gentlemen, and tho fact that they
vanquish their opponents will not re
habilitate their honor.

The following statement ifts given
out by the chairman or the U?rd^Mr.
HL H. Watkins: ,... ,J?: .
"At a Bpccial meeting o?jms^$DCal
members of the executive ,CQiaqtibf&
of Anderson college this i ?t?ternoon,
tho petition of Prof. W. H^Hand lo
be released from his co,ttl^^HffiMH?
president of Anderson corwfec was
unanimously granted. Wb4^HPHfJfe.?
Heatly" all of the other members of
the Board were in hand and recorded
as favoring the rel?ase.
It will be recalled that some days
ago n committee of educators came to
Anderson to request the release, stat
ing at the time that they were acting
entirely on their own initiative and
not as a suggestion to Prof. Hand.
After a discussion with the committee
tho local representatives .of the .An
derson Board felt that ihey had con
vinced their visitors that ??itrr request
ought to be grunted, both because of j
tho supe-ior claims nf Anderson col
lege and bacausc of the importance of
the work.
"Later on. Prof. IJand himself, ask
ed for an interview with tho loca',
members of the executive committee,
and at this interview, on Thursday
night of last week, he stated that he
had decided to ask for the release,
and stated fully his reasons for so
doing. However, after going over thc
matter with the committee, he decided
to withhould his application, for fur
ther consideration, but on last Mon
day morning the chairman of the board !
received the 'formal written request
tor a release. #
"A letter was pr?par?e ano sont to
the out-of-town members of the board
which fully explained thc situation, ;
nnd they were asked to record their
votes by telegram. Thc replies were \\
prcsentod to the meeting this after-j

For Wot
(By Special Correspondence.) j
Columbia, March 21.-Despite the
fact that tho bill giving women the
right to vote was laughed to death
when It was i?iio?uceu in the house
of representatives this year. South
Carolina suffragists, not "suffragettes"!
if you please, have not lost heart.
In Columbin a league has been form-1
ed for the study of the question of]
giving women the ballot and sever
al meetings have been held.
The suffrage gathering has been at
tended by old women ana young wo-!
men. They have been more or lese
pink tea affairs io date, but those who
got to them are expected to spread the j
propaganda.
At one of tbe suffrage meetings, an !
ardent suffragette, a malden lady,
asked the married woman on her right
whether or not she favored votes for)
women and was going to join the lea
gue.
"I don't know," said the married]
woman. "I'll have fe go home and|
pray for lt." %
"Thank goodness" laughed the mal-1
den lady, "I haven't got a husband to j
n*k If I ca? Join."

"Among the reasons assigned by
Prof. Hand for ?'esirhi?; his relense
were the following: at thc timo o?
his acceptance of his election to the
presidency of the college, it had been
announced that the funds ror contin
uing tho present work would be with
drawn at the end df the present ses
sion. Since then he has been assttr
letters from uuraerouis educators with
in and without the state, arguing that
it would bo very detrimental to the
progress of constructive work In
whtcli he had been engaged for him
to lay down at that time. The writ
ers of these letters were of the opin
ion thal his present work was tho
most important single piece of con
structive work for education that is
now being done in the state.
..The pressure '.vas So Herat mat
Prof. Hand became convinced that Ito
ought to ask for his release In order
io further conduct th? work. He slat
ed t?i thc board that !;c felt that the
work be ls now engaged in was so
important io all tim colleges of the
state, as \v ll an high schools, tiiat
Anderson college would greatly suffer
along wit li other colleges if hq should

In addition to Ibis Prof. Hand urged
that the lack of experience lu col

d Appeal
nan Suffrage
Mrs. II. n. Velentine, president of the
Kauai suffrage league of Richmond,
Va., spoke to on audience of 300 wo
men and about a score of men. The
attendance at the meeting exceeded
the expectations of those who had
arranged for it, consequently there
were no seats for about half the au
dience.
Lewis Parke Chamberlyne, a profes
sor of the University of South Caro
lina, introduced Mrs. Valentine. The
Virgina suffrage leader pointed out
conditions in South Carolina which
she said, could be remedied by giving
women the ballot.
"Equal suffrage" is just a slogan, de
clared Mrs. Valentine. "What women
are asking for iii freedom to band to
gether into a great sisterhood for the
development of her Godgivcn capac
ity of helping thc unfortunate."
Mrs. Valentine decried tbe objec
tion advanced by opponents of equal
nuffrage that it would divorce the
women from their home interest*.
When Mrs. Valentine flnisehd her
iddress the audience, on thc motion
afRev. Kirkman G. Finley, rector of
the largest Episcopal church in Co
lumbia, gave her a rising vole of
thanks. Scores of women passed
ferotfnd her to shake hands. Several
