The death of Sir George Chetwynd Saturday at Monte Carlo recalls the most famous love story of the Victorian era, which has a special American interest from the fact that the baronet's heir, George Guy Chetwynd, marled In 1002 the beautiful American girl, Rosa mund Holt Secor, daughter of a rich New York lawVer. who. however. divorced him. 'This story of love and the. turf Is recalled by a dally as fol lows: "Chetwynd, once a conspicuous figure on the turf and In the pbl5 set, appeareiln a cause celebre of the turf whtn he brought a libel action against' Lord, Durham for a speech at a club in which the peer criticised the running of Sir George's horse Ful lerton In the racing season of 1887.

"The case. was btoueht before three arhltratnrs. Jumna T.nwt!ir M 1 the Earl of March, and Prince Solty koff. Though the graver charges were found by the arbitrators un founded, there were such unsatisfac tory conditions about the running of the baronet's horses that they award ed him only a farthing damages and ordered each side to pay its own costs. "Sir George took this as a slur upon him and resigned from the Jockey club. His jockeys was subsequently warned off the turf. "Sir George's turf career had a ro mance. He married In 1870 the Mar chioness of Hastings, who died In J007.

Cubkn Rebels Surround Ameri can Colony Intervention Plot Feared. Commander Belknap, in charge of the American marines landed at San tiago, Cuba, cabled the Navy De partment today. "All quiet." Press dispatches from Havana to day say L. A. Ward, a member.of the American colony at La Gloria. Cama guey Province, has reached Havana and reports the colony in a desper ate condition as a Result of he dep redations of bands of rebels in the Cubltaa Valley. A Ward bought his way through the rebel lines wjth two bottles of rum and promptly on his arrival went to William Gonzales, the American minister, bearing the colony's prayer for relief. Gonzales at once cailea on President Menocal and "the latter has telegraphed Colonel Pujol In Camaguey Province to make an ef" fort to relieve the colonir. , Only" rro visions. "There are a thousand to fifteen hunderd rebels around La Gloria." said Ward, "and they are concentrat ing In the Cubltas Valley, which was a stronghold of the Cuban rebels In the early uprising- against Spain. The only provisions obtainable by this unorganized mob, four-fifths of whom are- negroes, are in the vari ous American colonies in the Nge vi tas district, of which La Gloria is one. The . rebels are gradually getting bolder and more desperate as they grow hungrier, and while at "first they only robbed outlying farms and homes of Americans, they are gradu ally completing tne circle and are now at the very door of the town' of La Gloria. Their officers are frank In saying thai their original orders were only to take horses, arms and am. I munition, but now they seem to have ci.i;i.cu uiuoii lu .blk .nil DUm U1Q even kill In an effort td, force Amer ican intervention. The situation Is very serious, because If some Amer ican loses control of himself and shoots one of the rebel raiders. It will be a spark that will start a wave of fire, rape and assassina tion." Takes Blatter Up. Minister Gonzales 'took, the matter un wUh Captain Sprlngle, of the transport DlxleTwho Is In touch. with the American warship elf - the Nuevltaa coast, and confidence was expressed that American marines could reach La Gloria inslde.of twenty-four hours. The worst of It Is that the town Is short of supplies and the rebels do not believe the. Ameri can statements that all the canned goods have. been consumed. ' Among. the Americana whose homes already have been raided are Messrs. Franydln. Carr, Hutcbens, Duckworth, Taylor. Mayo, Corliss, and Glbbs, far mers and members of American colo nies at Columbia, Canasl, Palm City and Garden City. All these, Ward says, have been warned that next week their homes will be burned and they themselves killed.
