Red Flag Losing

Tiflis. Soviet Republic of OeorRla.
Oct. 21. (By a Staff Correspondentt of
the Associated Press.) The Soviet
government here Is much more active
than that ot Moscow. It is a case of
the new broom that sweeps clean. It
has been supposed that, since the or
ganization of Jhe democratic Ceor
trlan Republic by the Eleventh Red
'Army, last February, the government
here was of the kind Jocularly called
ersatz" in Germany, that Is, a sort of
harmless substitute for the real hinff.
While in Soilet Russi, the Red flag
and the bayoneted Red soldier are
Koing out of style, these two attributes
of new freedom are much in evidence

Out of the Race
When a person wakes up with a
stiff back, has, pains in muscles,
aches in his joints, or has rheuma
tic twinges, he lacks ambition and
energy and cannot do his best. If
you feel out of the race, tired and
lanouid, or have other symptoms of
kidney trouble, you should act
promptly. Foley Kidney Pills help
the kidneys do their work and get
ut of the system the poisonous
waste matter that causes so much
trouble. They give relief from sleep
disturbing bladder disturbances.

Never bfore has a governor of
Porto Rico adopted the policy of
Governor Reily in visiting each town
and speaking directly to the people
In every speech he has emphasized
the loyalty of the vast majority of
the people of the island to the United
States and he has been severe in his
criticism of the leaders of the ma
pority party, the Unionists, who
have opposed his campaign against
the one-star flag and advocate of in
dependence In his official visit to Fajardo, the
home of Antonio R Barcelo, presi
dent of the Unionist party, the city
was decorated with American flags
only, and it was the first city visited
that day in which no one-star flags
were to be seen
Republicans and Socialists, both in
favor of Statehood, have greeted the
governor in large crowds in all the
towns he has visited Unionists, ex

Ends Official Tour
Cairo, Egypt, Nov 17 A delega
tion of labor members of the British
Parliament has just completed an
unofficial tour of investigation in
Egypt It was headed by J E Swan,
member of the House of Commons
and a mining leader of Durham The
local press devoted columns daily to
the activities of the mission but it
caused little excitement and there
was no unfortunate ncidents such as
occurred in previous instances
It is regarded as unfortunate in
business circles here that the visit
of the Swann Mission was personally
conducted by the Nationalist Party
Ie came at the invitation of Saad
Pasha Zagloul, president of the Na
tionalists Business men feel that
under such conditions the mission did
not have the best opportunty to ob
tain a comprehensive view of condi
tions in Egypt They also question
whether the mission devoted suffi
cient attention to the study of the
commercial and financial conditions
in this country
The extravagant hosptality of the
Orientals is likely to make a visitor
forget that the East, like the West,
depends for its prosperity upon its
commercial and 'inanical machinery
So far as known the Swan Mission
did not consult with the large for
eign colonies here which handle the
financial anil commercial business of
the country which is so essential to
its prosperity With the exception of j
the growing and picking of the cot
ton crop which constitutes Egypt's
greatest contribution to the world's
raw products, all the other opera
tions of ginning, pressing, financing,
insuring, exporting and, shppng of
cotton are done by foregners
These men feel that their views
should be considered by any group
which hopes to make an impartial
.study of the Egyptian question
In view of the foregoing facts,
foreigners in business in Egypt
doubt whether the Swan Mission will
have much influence upon the nego
tiations now resumed in London be
tween the representatives of the
British and 'Egyptian governments

In the Near East
(Br Assoclnted Press)
Constantinople, Oct. IB. Americans
should continue thcr rhumanitarlan
work in the Near East, said Prank A.
Vanderslip, New York financier, when
he visited this city in the course of an
econlmic survey of Europe.
He Will Tell Anybody
"I had a severe cold," writes For
est Thomas, R R 3, Box 29, O'Fal
lon, Mo., "I thought I was taking
pneumonia or consumption. Noth
ing seemed to do me any good. I
was recommended to try Foley's
Honey and Tar. I took two bottles
and I feel perfectly well now. I'll
tell anybody Foley's Honey and Tar
can't be beat for colds and coughs
and ought to be kept in the house all
the time. It pays to do so." Be
sure to get the genuine Foley's. Con

"We may be charged wth shrinking
our )oliti;oaJl f csponsfbilltfes in (the
Near East and with desertion of our
associates la the late war , when they
came here to administer an exceed

he continued. "Hut there is nothing
but praise for America for her wonder
ful relief work here."
Mr. Vanderslip said Americans had
signally distinguished themselves in
their work in behalf of the 500,000
Russan, Armenian and Turkish refu

"The American lied Cross has fur
ulshcd these unfortunate refugees
with $10,000,000 in supplies and trans

instrument in moving refugees to
where they could have an economic
life. Their work has just ceased.
There are still tens of thousands of
refugees. There are 15,000 utterly
without means of support.
"Kvery iAmerican here feels the
Red Cross work should be continued
for a short time until these remaining
refugees are able to secure subsist
ence for themselves."
The American banker closed the in

the activities of the other American
relief organizations and educational
bodies in Constantinople and a plea
that the people at home would con-
