Short Sketch of UIeIngonl's New president
rNows and Cour*e
Jo P. Thomas, who was superin
dent of the Citadel Academy
hilo Mr. H. S. Hartzog, the uoNyly
Slected president of Clemson Col
lege, was a cadet there, gives the
following interesting-sketch of him:
"Hartzog has done much as an ed
ucator, with promise of much more.
He is a member of the brilliant Cit
aiel class of 1880, first to gradu4te
after the reopening of the Academy.
Of the 180 cadets who entered the
Citadel in 1882, fifty-three survived
to graduate. Of this number was
Hartzog. That class, by the way,
has a remarkable record, especially
in the hae of educators. Harriso
formely of Clemson, now of Da -
son; Bond and Coleman at the it
adel; Kinard at Winthrop; Spgn, of
the Georgia School.,of Technology,
Floyd and Jaw, -both instructors in
-----+W i; Rhobertson teaching in
Georgia, and McCants, president of
the Stuart Normal College, of Vir
ginia, are all members of this class
of '80, and now comes to supplement
the roll Hartzog, president of Clem
son. The characteristics of each one
of that class I recall perfectly.
"Hartzog was a high toned cadet
and an excellent scholar in the de
partment of history, belles lettres
and ethics. He delighted in E n
glish literature, in the analysis of
Shakespeare, in moral and mental
philosophy, in essay writing and in
oratory. He was a good soldier, but
his passion was for letters.
"I have confidence in him now as
I had confidence in him then. Hart
zog's principles are sound and ideals
lofty. He will do all that his youth
Vill allow, and I believe he will earn
estly seek the wisdon of age. I ex
pect him to hold high the standard of
Clemson as a moulder of character;
and as a wise and good manager I
expect. him to excel, while at the
same time he will intelligently look
after the agricultural, mechanica 1
and scientific departments of the
affairs of his principality he will put
Clemson College on a prosperous
career. But let me say in conclu
sion that no president of a college or
head of a military school can accom
plish' results or do his duty to the
State unless he enjoys the confidence
and has the loyal support of the
board of management of the institu
tion. No :_ &I.tho _ate more sin
oeoeIy de,afres Hartzog's success than
lisa friend and former preceptor. He
deservesjthe confidence of the State."'

Hazloton, Pa., September 17.-Th<
strike situation to-night may be sun

men are still out, with no apparon
prospect of settlement; sporadIc out
breaks of violence are occurring nea
the outlying collories and the with
drawal of troops is not only withoul
consideration, but the guard lines of
several of the camps are being con
stantly strengthened, and the wis
dom of bringing more cavalry is be
ing discussed. It was said today
that if the soldiers are kept her(

The brigade coniniander himsell
admitted that the action of the raid
ing women was giving him much
perplexity. He does not care to use
force against them, and has in
structed the soldiers in case of no
cessity to use only the flats of their
sabres upon the Amazons. The
story reached the Gonoral that many
men were in the attacking crowds of
yesterday and today, disguised as
women. This morning's violent
scene at Andenriod was almost an
exact repetition of yesterday's at the
same place. It arose from another
attempt to start the Monarch and
Star washories of the Lehigh and
Wilkesbarre Company. About one
hundred men reported for work at
the former, when the wild band of
women swooped down upon then
with .n armament of sticks and
stones. Others were stationed od
top of an adjacent culin bank, whence
they showered missiles upon the
would-be workers, and a large body
of men and boys waited in reserve
behind the bank. The men prompt
ly quit work before any injury could
be inflicted. At the Star waihery,
where 100 or 135 men wanted to
work, a like assault stopped tiemn.
Late last night another territory
was turbulent. A body of strikers
at Lattimer, No 2, quarrolled among
themselves and bloodshed was
threatened, whPn Company E, -of
the 13th regiment, which is camped
at Lattimer, restored quiet.

I.President D. C. Gilnan, Johns
Hopkins University, in Atlantic.]
When (eorge Peabody 30 years
ago put in trust $2,000,000 to be
spent in furthering education in the
United States, he mado undoubtedly
the wisest provision fo- the public
good that any similar benefactor
ovor mado. President Gilman,
chairman of the board, sots forth the
history and results of this groat fund
in the Atlantic. In the first place
he used uncommon wisdom in solect
ing the board of trustees. Although
the war bad but rucently ended and
mon woro violently divided in their
opinions, lie was broad enough to so
lect alike men from the north and
men from the south. lie was wiso
enough not to. restrict their action,
but to allow them to apply the
money to education as they pleased,
oxpressing simply his conviction that
it would serve the best purpose by
stimulating educational work that
was already begun instead of found
ing new institutions.
Thi-oo presidents of the United
States, two chief justictis of the a
prome court and a number of other
most eminent men have felt it an
honor to servo on this board. It has
been proved, therefore, that the
highest possible service can be so
cured for a public end without pe
cuniary consideration if the ai) be
largo and high.
The income from this $2,000,000
was to be devoted as the trustees
saw lit for 30 years, and at the end
of 30 years they were themselves to
decide whether they should continue
longer to distribute this income or
whether the principal also should be
applied to edtucation and the trust
wound up. The trustees have ro
contly unanimously concluded to
continue the payment of the in
During these 30 years $2,400,
000 has been spent in furthering od
ucation, chielly in the Southern
States, and it is a modest estimate
of the results to say that a complete
revolution has boon brought about.
Less than 30 years ago 25 per cent.
of the whites in 12 Southern States
were illiterate, and now only 16 por
cent. Thirty years ago 87 per cent.
of the blacks were illiterate, and now
only 62 per cent. in Virginia in
1870 there were only 51,000 pupils
in the public schools; now there aire
436,000. These are specimens of
the results that have been brought
about more by reason of this great
donation than from any other single

foir the p)ublic good. They have be
