Farmers Urged to Give More Atten- t.ion to Dairying as Cotton Fails. Winona.The continued rains in this section for the past month have done considerable damage to all crops, and particularly the cotton crop. The weevil damage has been great and many of those bolls whioh got by the weevils are rotting on ac- count of the excessive rains, unuer the direction of County Agent G. C. Mingee, an organized effort has been started to save every bit of hay po sible. He is urging the farmers to cut every plot of meadow land, and even to go into old fields that have been laying out and to cut the grasses and lespedeza growing in such places. Smallest Cotton Yield. Ceenville.--The first week of SeP- tember closed after a week of clouds and rain with resultant hbavy dam- age to the cotton crop already di tressingly light. A trip over a con siderable area of the section adjacent to Greenville convinces that the cob ton yield here this year will be the smallest per acre of any year in his close observation of more than 30 years. Most of the cotton was stri ped of leaves by the army worm and the half-grown bolls were apparent. ly rotting, leaving only a short bot- tom crop. Inproving Lee Roads. Tupelo.--VVork is progressing rap idly on the roads leading north and south through the county. Tits roads are being widened to 24 feet and new rock is being put down. These roads are being taken over by the Stats Kighway Department under the new law that was voted last year, allow ing the state department to take over seven per cent of the roads of the county. Attack Writ of Errors. Jackson.--W&apos;hen the Uhited States supreme court convenes in October, an effort will be made to get the big anti-trust fire insurance cases up for an early hearing. The case will come up on a motion to dismiss the writ of error granted by the Mississippi su- preme court to the defendant com- panies. This motion will be filed by-the attorneys for the state revenue agent and will set up that there are no federal questions involved in the case and that the court is without jur. isdiction. Monroe Building Schools. Aberdeen.--Work on the grounds for the new $125,000 high school bdtding here is about finished, and the erection of the building will be- gin immediately. The new ureen, wood Springs consolldated school building, costing $11,000, and the new $15,000 Hamilton Consolidated School building will be completed this week. Build Fair Auditorium.

It will be 100x160 feet. and may be used between falvs as an auditor- ium. A number of automobile dealers favor an automobile style show and parade as a feature of the" fair this year, and it will probably be er- raJlged. "Big Bof' Captured. Clarksdale.--Jame Goodman, alias "Big Boy," the negro for whom the police of this city and Memphis have been searching for several weeks and who is wanted for his connec- tion with the assault here several weeks ago on the 70-year-old aunt of Mrs. Ferd Rodgers, Miss Orlle For- bes of Shreveport, La., has, accord- ing to advices received by the Coa- homa county sheriff's office been ap- ,prehended in Chicago.

MISS. SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 22 1923 BEFUBEES IA00WAIT OUTI;OME SOUT00 LOSES0000 REACH AMERII;00! NAVAL INQUIBY REPUBLII]AN 150 ARRIVE AT VICTORIA WITH STORY OF DISASTER. DESTITUTE, WITHOUT MONEY Little Band of Sufferers Was First to Leave Scene of Horror, Many Declaring Toll Was Fear- .. fully Underestimated. Victoria, B. C.--First refugees from the devastated regions of Japan to reach the North American continent axrived on board the Admiral Ori- ental line steamer President Jeffer- son. The big liner, carrying more than 150 persons, who made their way to "the water front in Yoko- hama, after a series of the most hair- breadth escapes imaginable, hove to at William Head, be Canadian gov- ernment's quarantine station, about 12 miles from here, to pass inspec- tion before proceeding to her berth at the outer dock here. She docked about 8 o'clock and was to discharge nove than .0 of her refugee passen- ger Destitute, stripped of all their b longings in the catastrophe that swept the capital of the Japanese em- pire, many of them suffering from shock and persona injuries, the little band of sur'ivors who wer first to Inave the scene of horror wrought by the earthquake and fire, lined the rall of the steamer and cheered the tug bearing quarantine and customs officers that put out to meet the Jef- ferson os she steamed into the har- bor at William Head. Although there were several per- sons on the ship who were in need of some medical attention, doctors from the quarantine station, who cme off gas Jefferson when she wa cleared for Victoria. said that for the most part the refugees were in no extreme need. Many of the men who lined the rail as the ship entered the harbor were wearing a strange a.0rtment of clothing, donate<i by members o the ship's crew and persons who were on the Jefferson when she reached the scene of devastation of Yoke- hma. The women  folk seemed to have fared better, physicians assert- ed, hough many of them were clad in garments that will be exchanged for other apparel as soon as possible. Mental anguish was apparent among many of the women passenger on the vessel who had been forced to leave their husbands behind when the ship sailed. Among tese was Mrs. Don Tingling, wife of the man- ager of the Yokohama office, Ad- miral Oriental Line, who was on board with their Infant daughter. Mr. ingling elected o stay by his Post in the devastated city in the inter- es of the company. Mrs. Tingling and her daughter were placed on the ship wbie the city was still in flames. Mrs. Junius B. Wood, wife of he Chicago News correspondent, was another who wax forced to leave her hUsband behind in her hurried es- cape from the burning city. That the estimates of the loss of life in the earthquake and fire have been without doubt underestimated was bhe assertion of he officers and crew of the stearns'ip President Jef- ferson, H. B. Clark, second officer of the ship Seattle, said that in his estimation at least a quarter of a mil- lion persons perished in the disaster. Other of leers said they were of the same opinion. Second Officer Crk's story ot the lsaster goes': "Tile earthquake occurred almost exactly at noon. Times varied from between 11:57 and 12:02 o'clock. The steRmeiip Etmpress of Australia was due to depart at noon and was cast- ing off her lines when the earthquake occurred. "Wiin five minutes after the quake started Yokohama was in ruins. Everything in the city was leveled to the ground. Immediately the fire started in hundreds of places, pre- venting the rescue of tbose trapped and buried in the debris. ''Vee learned this from refugees wno boarded our ship when we ar- rived in Yokohama 36 hours after the quake. "Before we left Shimidlzu, which is between Kobe and Yokohama, we knew there had been an earthquake in Yokohama, but we did not sspect what had really tppened. "About 60 miles from Yokohama we saw the reflection of the burning clti of Tokyo, Yokohama and S- hozo. The flames virtually turned the night into day. Navigatio4t was difficult beeam all  to naviga- tion were destroyed." DEATH DISCL08ES 8EX. Posed As Man, But Dtm,overed To Be Woman.

MAY CHANGE COMMANDERS NORTH AND BORDER STATES GAIN UNDER REALIGNMENT. 75 MORE ADDED TO NORTH Some Officer Has Been Trying to "Cover Up" Extent of Damage to Naval Yes.silk is View of Washington, Washington.--A shake-up of the entire organization of the battle (Pa- cific) fleet may follow  findings of the ,board of invesigation nw on the scene of the disaster to the ten destroyers and the court of inquiry which Admiral R. E. Coontz, com- mander-in-chief of the entire fleet, has recommended. Secretary of the Navy Denby, Ad- mirsd Eberle, chief of operations and other officials of the navy department. were still awaiting impatiently de- tailed reports of the causes of the disaster w,hich wrecked seven de- stroyers, and essentially to record the damage mffered by three additional vecls. While always aiming to mete out even-handed justice, Secretary Denby is known to be greatly aroused, es- pecially over the failure of the naval authorities on the Pacific to tell the conplete stow at the outset. It has been necessary to extract one detail after another, and the reaction in the navy department has been one o Keen resentment. Secretary Denby's order that the meetings of the board of investiga- tion be thrown open to the public and publicity given to every develop- ment was construed as indicating that he Is determined to adopt dras- tic meares if the facts, when all in, disclose dereliction on the part of higher officers of the battle fleet, and to shake up the entire organization if he considers such a course necessary in order to get results. Whether this would involve a change in the c.ief command of the tattle feet is op,. to question, since  Admiral S. S. Rolison has been c.m- mander-imchmf only a short time and has hardly had an opportunity to fanillarize himself with all details. The destroyer disaster was the first of its kind in the history of the navy and by far ,he worst suffered by our naval establishment in peace time. Secretary Denby is determined it sha be the last and will take tmtever action he may deem neces- sary to insure against a repetition. Officials of the department and na- val officeds in geheral therefore are awaiting with concern the outcome of the investigation now being made by the board headed by Rear Ad- miral W. V. Pratt. They are disposed to withhold Judgment until all the facts are known, but not a moment longer. Until a routine report of rbe three stightly damaged destroyers reached Secretary Denby, giving him the first intimation that more than seven ,had been in the smashup, he was personally inclined to believe that some unusual natural force con- trilmted materially to the disaster. This routine report apparently con- vinced him that same responsible of- ricer of the battle fleet has been try- ing to "cover up" and the navy sec- retary is utterly opposed to such tac- tics as shown by his order throing tJae meetings of the investigators open to the public. Admiral Dberle came to Wasbing- ington from the chief command of the battle fleet. He Wad taken great pride In developing the fleet organi- zation to a high point of efficiency. As chief of operations and ranking officer of the navy, he naturally Is concerned to see that efficiency main- tained on the same high level. TO THIS LOW LEVEL. Chicago Licker Makes Man Fight Dog in the Gutter. Chieago.--Men who guzzle the l- puric acid, gasoline, embalming tnid and other stuff labelled booze, do queer things, from climbing telephone poles backwards, to arson and mur- der.
