Admiral Wright, “Vet” Leader,
To Visit Capitols Of South
ern States
■ - ■-
RICHMOND*. VA. Jan. 23. —Armed
with a letter of indorsement from
Governor Trinkle, of Virginia, and
with a Joint resolution of sympathy in
his work from the General Assembly
of Virginia of 1922, Admiral A. O.
Wright, commander of the Confeder
ate Naval Veterans' Association, left
Richmond last week for Raleigh, N.
C., where lie will appear before the
North Carolina General Assembly.
Would Restore >ml Records
The object of thia visit on the part
of the veteran naval commander is to
enlist interest from North Carolina in
the efforts being nut forth by Admiral
Wright to save from oblivion such
records of the Confederate Navy as
may be still extant. Admiral Wright
purposes visiting tile Legislatures of
South Carolina, Alabama, Tennes'Vße,
Arkansas and Texas during: the next
few weeks, all of which bodies are
now in session. He will carry the
same message to the lawmakers of
these States, before whom he will ap
pear personally. ~j .{• (
•'f'My object, 1 ” said Admiral Wright
before leaving Richmond, "is to se
cure funds with which to rescue and
oeeure such records of veterans of the
Confederate Navy us may still exist.
Most official records of this nature
were destroyed at the burning of
Richmond. It is estimated that there
were 600.000 men In the field under
the Confederate colors, while there
were only 6,000 In the Confederate
.Rosters Lost At Full Of Richmond
"Rosters of field regiments were
kept as a part of each Southern
State's official records, but all official
data relating to men of the Confeder
ate Nuvy was lost at the fall of Rich
mond. It will he my effort to rescue
as much of this data as is possible
from oblivion, In which work I pro
pose to enlist the assistance of the
Southern States."
Admiral Wright Is a personal friend
pf Josephus Daniels, Secretary of the
Navy under the Wilson Administra
tion, and of Gen. Julian S. Carr. Com
mander-in-chief of the Confederate
Veterans. He wuis a classmate at An
napolis with "Fighting Bob'* Evans.

MANILA. Jan. 23. —• The establish
ment of English as the common lan
guage of the Philippine Islands and a
system of universal military training
in Philippine universities, colleges
and higher schools nre subjects of
great importance to the people of the
isluuds In the opinion of Governor-
General Leonard Wood. In a Thanks
giving Day statement Governor - Gen
eral Wood said the people of the
Philippine labor under two disadvant
ages. One is due to their residence
on many different islands, preventing
a quick assembly for purposes of de
fense, and the other, he declared, is
due to the fact that there is no great
common language.
“The people speak a number of dif
ferent dialects and those from one
portion of the Islands often cannot
understand the people from another,”
declared Governor - General Wood.
"This U a great source of weakness
but happily, one which wo can and
nre overcoming. The dialects will
live, just as the local dialects have
lived 'even in as highly developed a
country as England. Spanish will en
dure. We can develop English with
out lacking in appreciation of either
Spanish or the dialects., What we arc
striving for is to establish the best
possible language condition for the
people of the islands so there may be
a free transmission of ideas and a
medium through which all the people
can be reached. As it is now. in or
der to have a message reach the peo
ple of the islands it is necessary to
publish it in many different dialects.

I could not let her stand—

Why Druggists Recommend
■ For many years druggists have
watched with much interest the re
markable record maintained by Dr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kid
ney, liver and bladder medicine.

Swamp-Root is a strengthening
medicine. It helps the kidneys, liver
and bladder do the work nature in
tended they should do.
Swamp-Root has stooo the test cl |
years. It is sold by all druggists cu
its merit and it should help you.
No other kidney medicine has so
many friends.
Be sure to get Swamp-Root and
start treatment at once.
However, if you wish brst to test
this great prej>aration send ten cents
to Dr. Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N.
Y.; for a sample bottle. When writ
iug be sure and mention this paper.

Recent North Atlantic Storms
Took Heaviest Toll In Year

NEW’ YORK, Jan. 23.—The hur- Ji

I Now comes the worst month of the
year. January brings more vicious ;
pounding gales to Atlantic ships than j
any other. But the wgather bureau '
joins with maritime experts, this year, ’
in the belief that it cannot possibly !
,equal the late November to January 1 I
' That seven-week period which came !
to its end January 7 left a record hard •
for any like period to approach. The !
Atlantic claimed 12 ships; it took 2S *
men to their deaths; it made 23 giant
diners more than 12 hours late —most
|of them were from 2to 3 dayß behind
schedule —; and It left the unsolvable
■ mystery of what happened to-8 other
In addition there were accidents or
near Occidents on the Sea of Mamora,'
tj|e pacific, the Great Lakes, Bhl- j

(glossed the Atlantic were the worst.
jjiSocrotafy Hughes brought the first
fflfeat hurricane p’ith lyqi when he re
turnJ)*d ffoifa South America in Nov
ember. It swept out from behind Ber
muda with a force of more than 100
miles an hour. It tore across the At
lantic, hit the French coast and tore
right back again. And on November
28 there began to be reports of trou- j
ble at sea.
Five Canadian fishing schooners
failed to report that day. “Anxiety is j
felt for them,” said the dispatches.
Later four got in; the fifth is in the
list of missing ships.
On the same day. a bootlegger went
to pieces on Long Island, and resi- !
dents of the vicinity got most of the j
cargo, according to the prohibition ;
agents. Towards night a bottle was j
washed up on Long Island with the 1
story of six men who had fought death j
two weeks in an open boat.
Two days later the Italian liner i
Presidente Wilson crept into ’Quaran- j
tine here, and with her came the first,
reports of what actually was happen
ing out on the Atlantic.
“Storms?” said her officers,
“storms? We have never experienced
anything like it. The gale at times
was 120 miles an hour.”
For seven weeks since then incom
ing liners have told the same story.
