XTbe Grfbune Thur.dav. August 20.1914 However much we all may deplore this stupendous war now raging in Europe and the carnage, misery and suffering cone; quent thereupon; now that the war is on, we cannot but feel tliat it is one that should be fought to a finish, and also must we hope for the thorough defeat of Germany, and that, that defeat may the means of once and for all putting an end to the ambitions and pretentions of the German Emperor and the aggressive arrogance of the Ger man nation. We are authorized by His Excellency the Governor to sa> that a contract has been entered into with the Ward Line foi a Mail, Freight and Passenger service for a period of two years with an annual subsidy of £5000, and for practically a weekly service all the year round, with the privilege of alternating a freight boat with a passenger boat, except from January to April when it will be obligatory that the service shall be performed by the larger passenger ships of the line. The contract begins tomorrow with the departure of the S. S. "Guantanamo" from New York. The freight and passenger rates will be the some as by old i contract. ^SSAJK. beaten, the powers} The Bahamas Government should define her bounder.esand ; Line is discontinued, limit her navy; in1 this way only We are glad that this imporcan the peace of Europe be pre-I tant matter has been settled; served, to which she has been a menace during the last twenty five or more years, and especially to England. A recurrence of such a war as this bids fair to be, should not be left possible to Germany or any other power. The news of the war received by wireless and by American papers also is meagre, and from which it is difficult to correctly determine which way the fortune of water is going, but one thing seems certain that the German forces have been well held in check by the valourous Belgians, and there is no reason to doubt that when the allied forces of France, Russia and England effect a Junction; then in that dayhas Germany's humiliation come. The many lives that will be sacrificed and the colossal ex penditure of money will be all in vain, unless the result be the suppression and repression of Germany. England has good reason to fight, and to fight to a finish if she would live in peace; Fiance has on old score to settle and Russia has the incentive of racial preservation. Just now there is great tension of the public mind, not far from Inflammability. While we are profound believers in free speech, we think that some though we cannot say that we are pleased to have the Ward Line again as some of its policies do not commend themselves to us • It is a pity that the recent landing of the freight from ship to dock should be discontinued and return to the old system of lightering, in which breakage and broaching were very annoy ing items. However we know that the goverement dij what it could, and two years is not a very long time to wait by that time the harbour may be deepened.

What does citizenship in the British Empire involve? It in volves respect for the flag and a willingness to die for it. But what does it effect? It effects only benefits for the Caucasian race. The daily oceurencessuch as the treatment of Hindoos in South Africa and Canada com pels us to write as we do. Coming down to local politics we stand aghast at the shameless spirit of favouritism that has evercharcterized the admlnistra I tion in its govermental appoint ments. Not even a German whose race is now slaughtering our com Ppatriots on Belgium soil is de barred from enjoying the emolu ments of offiice and we are compelled to ask, as we are liber al why not import a few more Germans to fill such harmless positions as Commandant of Police and censors for wireless messages?

Thur.dav. August 20.1914
However much we all may de-
plore this stupendous war now
raging in Europe and the car-
nage, misery and suffering cone;
quent thereupon; now that the
war is on, we cannot but feel
tliat it is one that should be
fought to a finish, and also must
we hope for the thorough defeat
of Germany, and that, that de-
feat may the means of once and
for all putting an end to the am-
bitions and pretentions of the
German Emperor and the ag-
gressive arrogance of the Ger
man nation.
We are authorized by His
Excellency the Governor to sa>
that a contract has been entered
into with the Ward Line foi a
Mail, Freight and Passenger
service for a period of two years
with an annual subsidy of
5000, and for practically a
weekly service all the year
round, with the privilege of al-
ternating a freight boat with a
passenger boat, except from
January to April when it will be
obligatory that the service shall
be performed by the larger pas-
senger ships of the line.
The contract begins tomorrow
with the departure of the S. S.
"Guantanamo" from New York.
The freight and passenger
_ rates will be the some as by old
i contract.
^SSajK. beaten, the powers} The Bahamas Government
should define her bounder.esand ; Line is discontinued,
limit her navy; in1 this way only We are glad that this impor-
can the peace of Europe be pre-I tant matter has been settled;
served, to which she has been a
menace during the last twenty
five or more years, and especial-
ly to England.
A recurrence of such a war as
this bids fair to be, should not be
left possible to Germany or any
other power.
The news of the war received
by wireless and by American
papers also is meagre, and from
which it is difficult to correctly
determine which way the fortune
of water is going, but one thing
seems certain that the German
forces have been well held in
check by the valourous Belgians,
and there is no reason to doubt
that when the allied forces of
France, Russia and England ef-
fect a Junction; then in that day-
has Germany's humiliation
come.
The many lives that will be
sacrificed and the colossal ex
penditure of money will be all
in vain, unless the result be the
suppression and repression of
Germany.
England has good reason to
fight, and to fight to a finish if
she would live in peace; Fiance
has on old score to settle and
Russia has the incentive of
racial preservation.
Just now there is great ten-
sion of the public mind, not far
from Inflammability. While we
are profound believers in free
speech, we think that some
though we cannot say that we
are pleased to have the Ward
Line again as some of its poli-
cies do not commend themselves
to us
It is a pity that the recent
landing of the freight from ship
to dock should be discontinued
and return to the old system of
lightering, in which breakage
and broaching were very annoy
ing items.
However we know that the
goverement dij what it could,
and two years is not a very long
time to wait by that time the
harbour may be deepened.
The large number of latest
New York Herald and Miami
Harold brought by the 'Frances
E" is not only a bit of tmterpritt
on the p irt of Mr C. C. Sauti
ders hut R boon to the public;
at this juncture when news of

Mr. Editor.
Sir, We are afraid that our
much vaunted boast of Imperial
unity, equality and fraternity is
not only lip service but mere
clap trap.
What does citizenship in the
British Empire involve? It in
volves respect for the flag and a
willingness to die for it. But
what does it effect? It effects
only benefits for the Caucasian
race.
The daily oceurencessuch as
the treatment of Hindoos in
South Africa and Canada com
pels us to write as we do.
Coming down to local politics
we stand aghast at the shameless
spirit of favouritism that has
evercharcterized the admlnistra
I tion in its govermental appoint
ments.
Not even a German whose
race is now slaughtering our com
P- patriots on Belgium soil is de
barred from enjoying the emolu
ments of offiice and we are
compelled to ask, as we are liber
al why not import a few more
Germans to fill such harmless
positions as Commandant of
Police and censors for wireless
messages?
Mr. Editor why stick ;it sui'h
trifles? Do we never intend to
learn by experience? How many
of those foreigners who became
naturalized British Subjects
merely to get -a piece of bread
have retained A-lr adopted na
tionality"? It vrVild be a very
good and1 pO/fV.dblc tiling for
the well being most of tie figureheads in the
House v<*?^ exiled for life on
one of these deserted Cays in
the Atlantic and a new body of
modem and thinking men were

PARIS WILDLY GREETS
BRITAIN'S ARMY CHIEF.
Field Marshal Sir John French
Passes Day in Conference
and Calls.
Paris, Saturday.Field Mar-
shal Sir John French, Comman
der- in-chief of the British Army,
was greeted by a vast crowd
when he arrived at the railway
station in Paris today. The
people cheered, and sang the
British anthem when the field
marshal came out of the station
in his khaki uniform. He was
attended by the British Ambas-
sador and the French Minister
of Interio and was followed by
a numerous staff.
Sir John passed the day in
conference with Adolphe Mes-
simy, minister for War, and is
pay ing formal calls on President
Poincare and the Premier, Mr.
Rene Viviani.
The French Minister of For-
eign Affairs states that the posi
tion in Upper Alsace and at
Leige are unchanged and con
eludes;
"In consequnce of the univer
sal outcry the German govern
ment has decided to remit to
the erstwhile French Ambassa
dor at Berlin the $900 he had
been compellod to pay for his
journey back to France."
The first sentence of death by
a French court martial in the
present war was announced to
day. It was pronounced on a
French tradesman, whose name
has not been disclosed. It was
proved that he sent reports on
aviation, on the defences of the
country and on the wireless tele
graph stations on Eiffel Tower,
to a French secret service agent,
believing him to be a Germna
spy.
The French military authori
ties and the Prefect of Police
Mr. Calestin Honnion are exer-
cising generous discretion
with respect to the Germans and
Austrians now in Paris. Many
of those who have resided for a
long time in the city will be al-
lowed to remain with their fami-
lies, instead of being sequestered '
in Western and Southern France.
The Puhlic Prosecutor, Mr. A.
Monnet, today requested the
Criminal Court to acquit a Ger
man named Vogt, who had been
arrested on suspicion of being a
spy. The charge was not prov
ed.
"Justice in France must be
applied," said Mr. Monnet,
"even towards ouj implacable
enemies."Ibid.

ate and suppress the German race
by Russian Pan Slavism.
. "We expect that the sense of
justice of the American people will
enable I hem lo comprehend our
situation. We invite their opinio-
as to the one sided English repre-
sentations nnd ask them to exam-
ine our point of view in an unpre-
judiced way.
"The sympathy of the American
nation then will lie with German
culture and civilization, which is
fighting against a half Asiatic and
slightly cultured barbarism.
The answer of the British offici-
alto this appeal was as follows. -
Great Br'tain is absolutely con
fident that the American public,
who have shown such wonderful \
sympathy with our people of the
same race and tongue and with
gallant France, will discount ami'
take at its proper value this Ger-
man atten.pt to falsify the position
of Great Britain and Franc; oolh
of which were forced into the war
by the Germans, ruthless dis.e.
gard of solemn treaties the viola-
tion of the soil of friendly and
peaceful countries and in defe
of human liberty and the
rights of nations.
