THE LATE COLONEL A. B. ANDREWS.
New York.-The board of directors
of Southern Railway Company
paid a high tribute to the memory of
the late Col. A. B. Andrews, first
vice-president and for many years a
member of the board, who died at his
home in Raleigh, N. C., on April 17,
1915, in the following resolutions:
"In Memoriam, Alexander Boyd
"Alexander Boyd Andrews was born
in Franklin county, North Carolina,
on the 23d day of July. 1S41. He
tendered his services to the Confed
eracy in April, 1861, and in June

of age? was made a second lieutenant

of North Carolina cavalry, Confed
erate States Army. He served with
distinguished gallantry until, in Sep
tember, 1863, he was shot through
the chest and lung by the fragment of
a shell at Jack's Shop, near Gordons
vllle, Va. After recovering from this
serious wound he found, when peace
was re-established, the whole indus
trial life of the South prostrate as

whom he lived confronted with the
task of rebuilding their social, and
of creating an industrial, system on
new lines. He became a factor of

coming years will be, enjoying the
conveniences, the opportunities and
the blessings made possible by this
great piece of constructive work. The
Western North Carolina Railroad will
remain a monument to the useful and
honorable achievement of Colonel
Andrews, who was its builder.
"His life was not an easy one, for
It was his lot to encounter and over
come great difficulties. His activity,
his positive and purposeful character
and his touch with great things
brought him into sharp conflicts with
important forces. In the midst of
them all he bore himself with a cour
age and virility which commanded
universal respect and enabled him to
crown his efforts with notable suc

lation of life he was loyal and faith
ful and true.
On the Personal Side.
"On his personal side he was a man
of compelling and attractive person

beloved. He married in 1869 Miss
