I havo never examined the gencologlcal tree of 06vi Swanson, hut his name Indicates that among tin' cavaliers who came in the old Dominion in the seventeenth century there were residents of Scandinavia long beforn. The name Bwunson would indicate it. and no doubt tin anCO Irin; of Ihe Covernor were resl dents of Scandinavia long before lb. Rernndottos were evci* known.

NRW YORK, Sept. X?Tin? Socio tnry of the Navy, with the approval lit President ItOOBQVOlt, Is preparing the most stupendous nliakotip In the history of I ho Department, it I? an nutlticod today. Duly four of the present captains of the battleship that will go from the Atlantic to llio Pnolflc, It is Maid, win make the trip; The vessels will he enininanded by youiigor men, while the elders aro relegated to shore duty according to the plan a? reached, thus carrying out the loop, desired change of ad? vancing young men t<> the fighting line. i he rumor bus It thai tho tour cap talus who will hohl their ships are: Potter, of the Vermont; Vreehind, n| Hie Kansas; Ostorhnus, of the Con ncctlcut, und Wnlnwrlght, of the ijouiaiaua. Captain McCroa, of the Georgia, may be retained In com maud, but It is dOllhthll. Ills Unto <d retirement Is only six years hence, The captains who may be sent ashore tool be supplanted by the younger offlcbra are: Bchroedor, or the Virginia: William W. Klinliall. of Hut New Jersey; w. R, Murdoch, bj the Rhode Island; Samuel p. cmnly. or the Alabama j Gottfried Dlbekllng er, or the Illinois; Herbert Wlllslow. or the Kcaraarge; Bdward n.

Berry and Theodore Porter, or the armored cruisers Tennessee null Washington. It in said the Hist Intimation or the Incorporation or tin- new plan came as a delicately phrased order lo one ol the captains to prepare ror shore duty, and that a rollet from sea dut tit this time was In no way a criticism on his ability as a commander. The reported change la all that Is 1 now being talked of among navnl j men. The plan, according lo a high officer. Is to place all captains on shore duly who could not expect to he advanced to rear admiral; and then serve two years before retire mcnt, and to put younger men In command of the big ships, advance them to the grade ()r rear admiral, and have them In uervlce a longer lime at that, grade.
