Quo., Jun. 12.—A de-. tailed description of a naval battle off Granada, Rritisli West Indies, is given in u letter received here to day from an eye witness, who asserts . that in his opinion the German cruis er Karlsruhe took part and wa? sunk. The letter was dated Granada, De cember 2, and the writer asserts that after tlie battle u life buoy came ashore marked "S. M. S. Karlsruhe", 1 together with wreckage and barrels of foodstuffs, lie further writes that, fishermen had brought the news that they Ifad seen dead bodies float- I ing in the vicinity of the battle, nuiu- • | hors of candles marked "Kaiser Light," boots witli feet in then), helmets, aud other wreckage. The letter .was made public by the 1 Montreal Gazette und was received by a member of the Gazette staff 1 from one or his friends at Grciiada. The letter says: "While at my house on a ridge overlooking the sea north of Gren ada I witnessed a naval engagement, which was undoubtedly carried on between more tliau two warships. The action lasted, as far as 1 ob served, from 7 o'clock p. .m to 11 p. m. As the darkuess increased U was ’ quite apparent when broadsides o. 1 irojectlles exploded within seconds of each other on either side, within a range of four to six miles. I did not 1 hear the explosion of the shells, as the fight was too far away. Nobody in Rt. Patrick's appeared to have no ticed what had happened. Whether the government knew of the engage ment or not, they certainly censored all news as regards it "Six days afterward I was con firmed iu my opinion by the fact that Sauteur fishermen, fishing in the C’arriclon channel, brought in news that they bad found dead bodies floating in the water, together with numberless candles, marked "Kuiser liglU" (a sample of which I send you us a Christmas card): also boots with feet iu them, helmets, pieces of wreckage, etc. "On my portion of an island called Isle of Rhnmlrfe a life buoy eanu ashore marked "S. M. S?. Karlsruhe", and besides wreckage and burrcls of foodstuffs. I am the lucky possessor of un officer's sword, which came 'ashore wrapped up carefully in oil- ’ cloth. "All this confirms my conclusion that not only did an engagement oc cur but that the derailed Karlshure has been sank." The Karlsruhe last was deiinitcly beard from on October 26, when she captured the Igimport and Holt liner Vandyke. The Vandyke was the sev enteenth vessel that bad been caught by the German cruiser. No vessels also, so far as known, have been cap tured by the Karlsruhe since October 26. The British admiralty has made no announcement concerning the re ported sinking of the Karlsruhe. Heretofore the admiralty lius been prompt to annouuee any disaster to German warships. • ADDITIONAL RULES FOR DEBATE ARE PROMULGATED Principal Kealey of the local high school is in receipt of a letter from Principal McCliutock, regard ing the matter of a fluul decision iu tilt* coining debate contest, gome school should be definitely decided us a winner in order that tills school should have the privilege of entering the state debating contest.

He pointed out the fact that by nature Jacob wus endowed with splendid ability as a mau of the world. He possessed a wonderful in tellect and proceed to use it for Ills ; own enrichment. He gained great ( advuntage by deceiving his old blind father. He drove a sharp bargain with his only brother, which put him in a position of honor and power as the line leader of his family, lie outwitted ills shrewd old father-in law und was fast robbing him of lit* ; cattle and his wealth. He always | hud succeeded by reason of liis su perior intellectual powers und thru his craftiness as a chemer.

So confident was lie that 1 when he would go up to possess the promised laud he still relied upon that ability alone to bring him into the heritage. God could not give tiie inheritance to such a man until lie had in some vfay changed his viewpoint and there is no better way to change tiie view point of a selfish mau than to eh itige . his nature. lie could not change the |character excepl through tiie will aud choice of the man.

Jan. 12. —Ju hlsjj farewell message today to the ( South Carolina legislature. Governor j Blouse commented upon wnat lie scribed as the "eneroucluuent by federal government upon state's . J rights,' man'yof which he asserted. "had been stolen." , "Can it be possible," iv said, "tliut under the lead of a man sometimes j called a southern the Democratic \ party is to become the party that is \ 'stealing the power from the states’/ and giving it to the federal govern- / ment. and that the Republican parly r to hum bit 1 Jacob God must undertake lu his behalf. h'oiiic contend that Jacob was a I •Christian man since childhood, but > his conversion dales from that Unit; i , Wight of struggle on the banks of 1 , the Jabok. That conflict represents ! I .human wisdom at its best arrayed'* in selfishness against God and bis i plan. Human wisdom and skill are ’ . Gad given and God honored but only I* 1 wlion used in harmony with God's* , plun. God's plan is not arbitrary. but is revealed as the only best >vny . for man as well as for God. Just us j jthe Biblo is true not simply because It is God's message, but God said ( ■ these tilings because they are true. So the plan which God reveals is best | for man because God selects that plan , for ills children which is the very 1 best possible plan of all the world for them. God could not welcome un insin cere man as Jiis own. to a rich herit age anil as the head of a great religi ous liuc. When at last Jaeob surren dered and began to plead for a bless ' ing. God insisted tHut Jaeob should ' make confession of his sins so lio.■ ; asked IGui “What is thy name?” Most of you know that a name designated I a character in the times when this i record was made, and the name Jacob | denoted treachery, cheating, sup-! 1 planting and scheming. Jaeob at ' last acknowledged bis name aud In • so doing lie made confession of all i his wicked nature and selk seeking. ( i We have the assuruuce that when j we confess our sins aud forsake them, j i turning to God in the name of Jesus , i our savior. God is faithful and just 1 I to forgive us aud .to cleanse us from j l nil unrighteousness. So when Jacob • I surrendered to God and pleaded for , I a blessing aud acknowledged bis sins j ■ and put Ills confidence wlioly in his j God, the Lord gave him u new name. Me was called a prince. He had won j .ip the conflict with God, but lie won j ■ by humility' and prayer. He bad great power with God, but it was the i power of a true fa.th in God. Another remarkable tiling was that ! • as soon as Jacob got right with God ! lie was reconciled to hjs brother. Jacob was blessed and turned from : Ills wicked way, but at a fearful cost. TTe went limping through life. Some; . men refuse to hear the word of God j until he speaks while they stand amid the wreck of earthly fortunes j or beside the little white casket. T)o not take chances against God. Get right with your God an«l you will love him and your fellowmen as well. ; under the lead of a Hughes or Whit man ir to become the state rights and stop this stealing of power?” In closing his message lie declared: 1 ”f have bowed my knee to no man or set of men: if 1 create a favorable impression, all well and good: if 1 create an unfavorable impression. 1 and I alone am responsible. My life's work so far as my personal interest is concerned has been eom t pleted. ! Tlie governor recommended sinall icr appropriations for state institu tions of higher learning, and the abolishment of all free scholarships. , Urging the legislature to provide for immigration. Governor Ulensc de | clared lie did “not agree with the ; "policy that men should be highly j educated in order to be immigrants. \ We want a laboring citizen,” be i said.
