New York, April 25.--Approximate
ly 123,000 men have applied thus far
and been found to hueet the iecessary
requirements for membersilp in Col.
Th'nodore Rloosevelt's proposed army
divi.Ion. It was announeed here to
night at enrollment headluarters
which were opened some Ilimc ago
with the former President's approval.
Sixty per cent of the volunteers are
from Virginia, North Carolina and
,South (arrolina and other southern
states. Only fift yapplieants., it. was
said, were under 25 years old. None
below this age are now heing accepted.
Of the total, 10,000 are negroes.
Prof. C. B. Martin to Leave Furman.
Prof. C. B. Martin, of Furmam uni
versity, has been elected superintend
ent of Chick Springs Military Academy
to succeed Capt. W. D. Workman who
resigned to enter the volunteer army.
We understand that Prof. Martin has
nccepte(i or has deeided to accept and
that at the end of this session will
sever his ofilelal relations with Pt ur
nan. We say 'olIlcial relation.;' for
there are relations of love and loyalty
that will not he severed until death t
itself severs them. Professor .llartin
has been with Furman a good while
and some of us had beglln to look on
him as a fixture. 1le graduated from
the institution in the '96's; and after
that was over the old Pittling School.
Tiesigning this he went. to Cornell for
his M. A. and returned to take charige
of the .Department of Latin. Tils ser
vlces to Furman have by no means
been confined to work in his depart
inent an( it would be diffilctlt to re
count all the ways in whleh he has
linked his life and talents to the o1(1 d
school, but suffice it to say, lie will be 1
greatly missed. We do not hesitate
to say that he will he a success In
his new work. Ile is a capable busi
ness man and has first class adminis
trative abilities. We rejoice that he
