Zhe tribune Tuttdav. June 23. 1914 We desire to thank the many friends of The Tribune and our Editor for kind enquiries as to his condition. We are pleased to be able to say that, today there is evident improvement. j* The Prorogation of the Legislature is a function that docs not arouse such public interest as is manifested when the session is opened. Curiosity as to what measures are contemplated, together with the presence of American visitors would go far to account for the keener attention displayed when the Session opens. Hut the closing of the session is an interesting function. His Hxcellency arrayed in his attractive uniform, with certain high officials oo his right, and the Legislative Council before him and the House of Assemblv Members standing to (lie North West of the Chamber make up an interesting scene. The Governor signing the Bills and signifying verbally after he has done so in each case his assent to the Mill is both businesjlike and picturesque. The trouble is that the tumult and the shouting of the political struggles over these Bills have died down. For good or ill the legislative work is over and therefore not many come to gaze on the scene The Members of the House looked happy at the prospect of imminent release from labour,! and the Legislative Council seemed to be trying in a deprecatory manner to make it appear thai asinii!„r release might possibly be acceptable to them.; I lie President did not have a I !>->red look. || ( looked grave and, well we understood his looks more when the Governor' plumped out in cordial tones the news that Mr. Joseph Brown had j become Sir Joseph Brown The prorogation was made all the, more interesting by the heartvj cheers which greeted the an n"i,ncemeni of this well earned honour %  he Governor x Speech was not lengths' nor 'did it indulge i" oratorical flourishesHe evidentl\ wished that certain measures which the Legislature could not sir hi way to pass bad been among thoswhic.i he assented to that day. but he said so in a manly way and with an appreciation of the difficulties under which legislators labour when the funds at their disposal are limited, and the claims on those funds are varied and sometimes conflicting. We await with great interest the outcome of some of the new legislation. Real possibilities for good lie therein if only these new laws are handled wisely, Theamend ed Mail Contract Act has given the Executive large powers. We quite believe that this bold action will work out well. The Governor appreciated the compliment and intends so to act as to justify it. Among those present in the Council Chamber yesterday at the closing of the Legislature were His I louour the Chief Jus tice, Mrs Haddon Smith, Miss Hart-Bennett, Mrs II. G. Mai colm, Mrs Joseph Brown now Lady Brown, Very Revd. Chrysostom Schreiner, Revd. D. Wilshere, Rev. Charles V i tann, Mr. W. T. Doty, United States Consul. ()n the Governors staff were the Colonial Secretary, the At torney General, the Acting Re ceiver General, Capt. Haddon Smith, Private Secretary, Lieut. Haddon Smith, A. P. D.

The Editor Tribune Dear Sir, In Saturdays issue of the "Guardian" the question of moving the Band Stand to Rawson Sq. is resumed with a persistency callculated to turn what was intended for the pleasure of the public a cause of unpleasantness. "Publicus" in the "Guardian" complains thai the Band Stand where 11 is gives a "lopsided" appearance to the Library Green; so itjdoes, but who is res ponsible for it. the "Guaidians" opposition, (whose [psicJixit all ind sundry must accept for the take of two or three paltry trees (?) or more likely the desire to (ill the role of (you shall not put it there —you must put it here! dictator; and the objection of the Board of Works, notwithstanding the fact, that scale plans was submitted to them from which they should have been able to judge of its appear .11.co in the position they permitted it to be placed. When the Band Stand was in contemplation we heard nothing from the ''Guardian" in support of it nor from 'Publi cus" judging from his letter; now, "Publicus" would bribe the promoter* with a subseffp tion if they bow to his and the "Guardians" will. Those who subscribed for the Band Stand did so with the clear understanding that it was for one to lie erected on the Library Green ami this has been done; now, if In deference to the "Guardian" who opposed us, and "Publicus" who would bribe us, those responsible for it should in >ve it to Rawson Sq. and so break faith with us. 1 shall ask 1 for the return of my subscription I and I hope others also. It is not the Band Stand per se 1 that the "Guardian" and "Pub lictIS," are after, no. their object I is a rostrum for public functions' at the cost of a limited number i of private individuals. I would suggest to the "Guar-1 dian" and its correspondent "Publicus"-a more dignified procedure, and that is to get up a subscription lor a Rostrum for Kawfon Sq. for public purposes which no doubt the Board of Works will permit, erect something liner thin the Band St in 1 in the corner of the Library Green, which may be lighted up nightly, in the winter months as an attraction.

Zhe tribune
Tuttdav. June 23. 1914
We desire to thank the many
friends of The Tribune and our
Editor for kind enquiries as to
his condition.
We are pleased to be able to
say that, today there is evident
improvement.
j*
The Prorogation of the Legis-
lature is a function that docs
not arouse such public interest
as is manifested when the ses-
sion is opened. Curiosity as to
what measures are contemplat-
ed, together with the presence of
American visitors would go far
to account for the keener atten-
tion displayed when the Session
opens.
Hut the closing of the session
is an interesting function. His
Hxcellency arrayed in his attrac-
tive uniform, with certain high
officials oo his right, and the
Legislative Council before him
and the House of Assemblv
Members standing to (lie North
West of the Chamber make up
an interesting scene. The Gov-
ernor signing the Bills and
signifying verbally after he has
done so in each case his assent
to the Mill is both businesjlike
and picturesque. The trouble
is that the tumult and the shout-
ing of the political struggles
over these Bills have died down.
For good or ill the legislative
work is over and therefore not
many come to gaze on the scene
The Members of the House
looked happy at the prospect of
imminent release from labour,!
and the Legislative Council
seemed to be trying in a depre-
catory manner to make it ap-
pear thai asinii!r release might
possibly be acceptable to them.;
I lie President did not have a I
!>->red look. ||(. looked grave
and, well we understood his
looks more when the Governor'
plumped out in cordial tones the
news that Mr. Joseph Brown had j
become Sir Joseph Brown The
prorogation was made all the,
more interesting by the heartvj
cheers which greeted the an '
n"i,ncemeni of this well earned
honour
he Governor x Speech was
not lengths' nor 'did it indulge
i" oratorical flourishes- He
evidentl\ wished that certain
measures which the Legislature
could not sir hi way to pass
bad been among thos- whic.i he
assented to that day. but he said
so in a manly way and with an
appreciation of the difficulties
under which legislators labour
when the funds at their disposal
are limited, and the claims on
those funds are varied and some-
times conflicting. We await
with great interest the outcome
of some of the new legislation.
Real possibilities for good lie
therein if only these new laws
are handled wisely, Theamend
ed Mail Contract Act has given
the Executive large powers. We
quite believe that this bold ac-
tion will work out well. The
Governor appreciated the com-
pliment and intends so to act
as to justify it.
Among those present in the
Council Chamber yesterday at
the closing of the Legislature
were His I louour the Chief Jus
tice, Mrs Haddon Smith, Miss
Hart-Bennett, Mrs II. G. Mai
colm, Mrs Joseph Brown now
Lady Brown, Very Revd.

The Editor Tribune
Dear Sir,
In Saturdays issue of the
"Guardian" the question of
moving the Band Stand to Raw-
son Sq. is resumed with a per-
sistency callculated to turn what
was intended for the pleasure of
the public a cause of unpleasant-
ness.
"Publicus" in the "Guardian"
complains thai the Band Stand
where 11 is gives a "lopsided"
appearance to the Library
Green; so itjdoes, but who is res
ponsible for it. the "Guaidians"
opposition, (whose [psicJixit all
ind sundry must accept for the
take of two or three paltry trees
(?) or more likely the desire to
(ill the role of (you shall not put
it there you must put it here!
dictator; and the objection of
the Board of Works, notwith-
standing the fact, that scale
plans was submitted to them
from which they should have
been able to judge of its appear
.11.co in the position they per-
mitted it to be placed.
When the Band Stand was in
contemplation we heard noth-
ing from the ''Guardian" in
support of it nor from 'Publi
cus" judging from his letter;
now, "Publicus" would bribe
the promoter* with a subseffp
tion if they bow to his and the
"Guardians" will.
Those who subscribed for the
Band Stand did so with the clear
understanding that it was for
one to lie erected on the Library
Green ami this has been done;
now, if In deference to the
"Guardian" who opposed us,
and "Publicus" who would bribe
us, those responsible for it should
in >ve it to Rawson Sq. and so
break faith with us. 1 shall ask 1
for the return of my subscription I
and I hope others also.
It is not the Band Stand per se 1
that the "Guardian" and "Pub
lictIS," are after, no. their object I
is a rostrum for public functions'
at the cost of a limited number i
of private individuals.
I would suggest to the "Guar-1
dian" and its correspondent
"Publicus"-a more dignified
procedure, and that is to get up
a subscription lor a Rostrum for
Kawfon Sq. for public purposes
which no doubt the Board of
Works will permit, erect some-
thing liner thin the Band St in 1
in the corner of the Library
Green, which may be lighted
up nightly, in the winter months
as an attraction.
Yours,
A SUBSCRIBER.
