The changes which are now being
effected at the waterworks station
grounds by the city under the direc?
tion of Councilman C. G Rowland
will, when completed, convert that
place Into a modern park, which will
afford many of the children of Sum?

providing a beauty apot for the city.
The grounds owned by the citj cov?
er an area of nearly thirty acres. A
line of trees haa been planted all the
way around these grounds and trees
are being planted throughout the
grounds. A driveway is being laid off
through the grounds and the whole
will be a park of which Sumter may
well be proud. Of course, it will tuke
some years for the trees to grow,
bat the first steps are being taken
now, and this goes a long ways to?
wards having the work done. The
main entrance to the park driveway is
from Corbett street, slthough en?
trances will be set out from Pine and
Church streets. The entire drive?
way will be about a mile, or a little
over in length, and of this distance
itqly a space of S3 feet Is straight. The

of trees. ..ees will be planted at a
distance of twelve feet on each side
of the driveway for its entire length.

[>act of Doubtful Validity and Not
Considered by Tliis Country in De?
Washington, Feb. 8.?A formal
statement giving assurances that the
government has no intention of sev
ing hank deposits or other property
belonging to any foreign subject even
in the event of war was issuedi by the
state department today with the ap?
proval of President Wilson.
The stiitcment was prompted by the
anxiety of German subjects in some
^ections regarding savings depo^i^
und by the many reports in circuhi
tion regarding the intention of the
government concerning war bound
vessels in American ports. It maV.cs
no specific reference to the Prussuin
American treaty of 1828, which pro?
vides for the immunity of such pro:>
erty, which has been regarded as of
doubtful validity, saying merely that
j tho government "will in no circum?
stances take advantage of a state of
war to take possession of property to
which international understand inl?
and tho recognized law of the land
give it no just claim."
The decision is understood to be In
furtherance of President Wilson's de?
termination that there shall be not h
mg in the conduct of the United Staus
to warrant criticism, rather than in?
dicative of any specific inclination to
acknowledge the validity of disputed
provisions of the old treaty.
J Officials did not comment on a press

tain a ^ratification of the treaty but

I get into port that vessels were being

At that rate it would take Just
four years to destroy the tonnage of
the entire world, 48,000,000 tony, if
all the world's ships ventured into the
j war zone.
Lloyd's report puts the tonnage
j sunk February ~>, G and 7 at about
j 85,000 tons.
I The world turned out in 1910 les~
j than 2,000,000 tonnnge of merchant
vessels. During the year the Germans
sank a trifle more than that, making

There are no figures to show the
amount of tonnage constantly on the

British isles. United States customs
I reports show that about 1,190,000
' tons clear from American ports
every month but as some vessels clear
twice the figures are misleading.
About the same amount of tonnage
arrives monthly from Kuropean ports.
Of the 4 8,000,000 tons of merchant

about 20,000,000 tons. The United
