T Zhe tribune Saturday. August 22. 1914 • It appears that some of our citizens are apprehensive of our safety from danger of German assault. They fear that on the war principle of "'harassing the enemy" some German ship, knowing that we are absolutely defenceless and unprotected might be led to drop in here, occupy the town, clean out the banks and perpetrate any other acts of destruction they might think of; with just as much justification as they have in capturing a British ship on the high seas; or a British colony in sending a force and capturing a German settlement on the West Coast of Affi Ca; or an ally of Britain (Japan) demanding the evacuation ol Chau Tian. These gentlemen have no faith in the protection (if the terms of International Law as they question whether these are observed. They think that a Man-of.\Var should be stationed here, or at least call in here occasionally as an assurance that help is nigh; and they are dis posed to wait upon His Excel lency the Governor to acquaint him with their fear*. For ourselves we feel not the slightest apprehension of danger from German interference, we think our insignificance largely, protective. Furl her we think the German navy has too much else to occupy its attention, to think about Nassau or the Bahamas, not the least being looking after its own safety. On the other hand it would be impossible for an English ship to be stationed at every u-iforti /led or otherwise unprotected British port; yet it might not be amiss if some of the British ships! patrolling the lower Atlantic and the Carribean would just "look in" when they are in the neighbourhood as an act of assurance. But should, which is most unlikely, a German ship land a force and occupy Nassau, there would he but one thing to do, fold your arms in meek submis sion, and let him do as it pleaseth h in, for be it remembered that the German shoots without compunction", any person not in uniform who uses weapons against him or in any way at tempts to impede him This leads us to another aspect of the situation; of all the British Colonies on the Western side of the Atlantic, the Bahamas are singular as being with out a Local Defence Force Why is it? Well \\v. will tell you We have too many supermen amongst us. We are too near Florida and we are too far away from Bobbie Burn's "A man's a man for a' that, and for a' that," and foi these reasons we are un able to make a success of even a "Boys' Brigade." Perhaps the good we may pet out of this war will be the con• viction that we are out of step] with the other colonies and that j we need to recover by inimedi | atetyorganizinga Loral Defence. Force, and placing it at the dis i posal of the P.mnire, in the shape i of a strong corps (if .Coast I >efence) Artillery the only fn re thai is of any use to US, so said' the Secretary of Slate for the] Colonies years ago, ,'nid so say we now. We have thrown away lots of the peoples money f r other things we ma) just, as well throw away gome more in tins way. If we had begun years ago dfunc so and had today a well established corps as that we suggest, the minds of our anxious friends would be much easier. To successfully ope raw such a corps we must take a leaf out of tiebook of the West India Col on i S and draw its membership as indiscriminately as we draw our jury. Latest War News Special i<> The Sanaa Guardian The Battle between the (ler mans and Allies still continues, with unabated fury but little in telligence is received as to the progress of either side.

This policy is illustrated fully in the recent appointment of an "Emergency Committee, a Committee on which, if on any, disinterested persons should be appointed. The probable result is that the Governor's intentions will be thwarted and the public not benelitted. On the committee of six what do we find, three shopkeepers, two Members of Assembly and one official or looked at in another way; four Members of As sembly, one shopkeeper and one official. Human nature is human nat ire and every shopkeeper on that committee in his heart looks upon this move-of the Governor's as rivaling his busi •IPSS and interfering with his chance of making a good thing out of the war upheaval I have in my mind six men of probitv and good repute who might have been employed with satisfaction on this committee, and another six if neccessary We shall see how this business has been worked, and what bene tit it has been to the community. Yours. A CITIZEN. Fresh Creek Andros Island • August 20th 1914 Tlif Editor of The Tribune, Sir, I don't know whether the writer of the letter signed "A Prole lariat" in your paper of August 8th is trying to make sin and stir up strife or not but I want to stop people getting a false idea about what lie says about Fresh Creek. All the people on Fresh Creek are Chinch people except two and these and the minister are good friends. Many people at Fresh Creek are quite happy that the priest is J. P. and there are hundreds of people on Andros, Church, Baptist and Me thodist who know the good nature and kind heart of Father Webb in sickness and trouble who are perhaps the best judges as to his trying to copy the lowly man of Nazareth who he so earnestlv wants his people to know and follow. I see that in your paper of July 28th "One Present' says the "Peacemaker" began the fight here. The minister has told me tint he has never reported any one for taking any one sponging without signing him, and I believe him. From so much Latin in his letter I guess "One Present" is one of those young men who have just enough learning to make j fools of themselves and not • enough to put to good use, because he seems ti justify people for making a row if any one is reported for breaking the laws of their country. I am, Sir. % Yours &c, AN INHABITANT OF FRESH CREEK FOR OVKR 25 YEARS. NO INTERRUPTION IN BERMUDA SERVICE Representatives of the Royal Mail Steam Packet Company and the Quebec Steamship Companv, which operate steamships between New York and Bermuda says that, while martial law has been declared in Bermuda, there is no interruption in the service between here and the little island in the Atlantic The establishment of martial law means that the dockyards in Bermuda are closed, and that access to the barracks and forts has been forbidden; but traffic goes just as in normal times. Leaflets are issued winch act at temporary passports. The cost of provisioning and coaling ves s"ls naturally increased as a re suit of the war. but the steam ship companies have not raised the rates and the vessels steam without interruption, W ILLIAMS THE SHOEMAN hasjust received a larger assortment of LADIES.

'I berefore, the mad Kmperor's fierce threats fall on deaf ears. "Mow gnns, not billingsgate, will decide the war which his cruel ambition forced upon peaceful millions." A despatch from Brussels to the Exchange Telegraph Company says the death of General von Emmich commanding the German Tenth Army Corps at Liege, is confirmed. He is to be succeeded by General von der Marwitz. General von Emmich was sixtysix years old. He joined the army as a volunteer in 1866 and was promoted two years later to a lieutenancy. H<* took part in the Franco-Prussian war in 1870.71. Afterward lie was promoted through all the grades until he hecame major general in 1901. When he was appointed to the command of the Tenth Army Corps he was made a general. A great trial has been the heat of the last few days. Sunstroke has been an additional enemy. The positions are all exposed, and the Belgian service headgear is one of the least practical. According to the latest advices, barely 500 German soldiers escaped unhurt out of the 4,000 or 5,000 engaged in the battle of Haelen. Many of the field guns of the German artillery were lost in the swamps, Tbefoldieit who remain. ed of the German attacking column retired to Tongres. A special trim has neen sent out from Brussels to collect the wounded on the battlefield. Among them are reported to be two German princes.

GERMANS
BEGIN ADVANCE
ALONG HUGE
BATTLE LINE
Brussels, Saturday.It is reported
here that the Germane are
endeavoring to advance all along
the huge battle line. Captured
( ierman officer* say the General
Staff i* prepared to Iom One Hun-
dred riiousand Men in an attempt
to roll back the allied armies.
Report! front Luxemburg indi-
cate that the Fighting between the
Belgian and German cavalrj is
Contifl......f in the rear of that town
w hit h now ii heavily garrisoned
and Strongly fortified
The Gerirans have been repute-
ed again at Longwy and Longlu"
jon.
The heroism of Belgian priests
w ho matched with the Hoops to
the firing line*, is the theme of
every tongue. The wounded who
have arrived here tell how the priest
ministered to the wounded and
lie.nd the confes-ioas of the dying
while the German guns roared and
the German cavalry charged the
Belgian lines. The example of the
I.....sis inspired the soldiery In
grenlei deeds ol daring and height-
ened the courage which led to the
surprising Belgian victories.
Liege still holds out ami the fire of
tli- German gun*, many of them
put out of commission by the Bel-
gian artillery, is slackening.
Belgian air scouts report the
enemy returning from the front
owing to the Belgian position, but
the Franco-Belgian General Staff
regards this as unimportant and
merely indicates that the enemy's
outp >sts are falling back-on the
m nn holy.
Belgian army's splendid morale
is Stimulated by its continued sue
cess. King Albert today sent his
congratulations to the defenders of
the Liege forts, saying their gal-
lantry will be an inelfacable record
in the hearts of all Belgians for all
time.
the King and his Ministers are
amazed and amused by the rfceipt
through a neutral power of an ex-
traordinaiy note from Germany,
which ruthlessly invaded Belgium
in violation of its solemn treaties
and without a declaration of war
that because Belgian farmers in
homespun and tradesmen in
smocks rallied to the colors to re-
pel the biutal foe, Germany will
make the war even more brutal
in character by shooting on sight
any French or Belgian private
citizen who interferes or appirent-
lv is even suspected of interfering,
with the progress of the German
army. The strange note says re-
ports received from the German
army leave no doubt that Prance
and Belgium have organized a
pipnlar wir against Germany, in
which private citizens, not war-
ing a uniform are firing upon Ger-
man troops.
Therefore Germany gives notice
to Belgium today that every Bel-
gian or French private citizen who,
not wearing a uniform, fires upon
the German troops or tries to inter-
fere in any way with the advance
of the German army will be im-
mediately shot. The note ends:
"If the war thus assumes a brutal
character it will lie the fault of
France and Belgium, not of Ger-
mrny."
One of King Albert's trusted
counsellors is quoted as saying :
"As the note says, the war is po-
pular As for shooting French and
Belgians the Germans have been
trying to do that for weeks. It is
true some of the Belgian troops

A despatch from Brussels to the
Exchange Telegraph Company says
the death of General von Emmich
commanding the German Tenth
Army Corps at Liege, is confirmed.
He is to be succeeded by General
von der Marwitz.
General von Emmich was sixty-
six years old. He joined the army
as a volunteer in 1866 and was
promoted two years later to a
lieutenancy. H<* took part in the
Franco-Prussian war in 1870.71.
Afterward lie was promoted
through all the grades until he he-
came major general in 1901. When
he was appointed to the command
of the Tenth Army Corps he was
made a general.
A great trial has been the heat
of the last few days. Sunstroke has
been an additional enemy. The
positions are all exposed, and the
Belgian service headgear is one of
the least practical.
According to the latest advices,
barely 500 German soldiers escaped

Saturday. August 22. 1914
'
It appears that some of our
citizens are apprehensive of our
safety from danger of German
assault.
They fear that on the war
principle of "'harassing the ene-
my" some German ship, know-
ing that we are absolutely de-
fenceless and unprotected might
be led to drop in here, occupy
the town, clean out the banks
and perpetrate any other acts of
destruction they might think of;
with just as much justification
as they have in capturing a Bri-
tish ship on the high seas; or a
British colony in sending a force
and capturing a German settle-
ment on the West Coast of Affi
Ca; or an ally of Britain (Japan)
demanding the evacuation ol
Chau Tian.
These gentlemen have no
faith in the protection (if the
terms of International Law as
they question whether these are
observed. They think that a
Man-of.\Var should be stationed
here, or at least call in here oc-
casionally as an assurance that
help is nigh; and they are dis
posed to wait upon His Excel
lency the Governor to acquaint
him with their fear*.
For ourselves we feel not the
slightest apprehension of danger
from German interference, we
think our insignificance largely,
protective.
Furl her we think the German
navy has too much else to occu-
py its attention, to think about
Nassau or the Bahamas, not the
least being looking after its own
safety.
On the other hand it would be
impossible for an English ship
to be stationed at every u-iforti
/led or otherwise unprotected
British port; yet it might not be
amiss if some of the British ships!
patrolling the lower Atlantic
and the Carribean would just
"look in" when they are in the
neighbourhood as an act of as-
surance.
But should, which is most un-
likely, a German ship land a
force and occupy Nassau, there
would he but one thing to do,
fold your arms in meek submis
sion, and let him do as it pleas-
eth h in, for be it remembered
that the German shoots without
compunction", any person not in
uniform who uses weapons
against him or in any way at
tempts to impede him
This leads us to another as-
pect of the situation; of all the
British Colonies on the Western
side of the Atlantic, the Baha-
mas are singular as being with
out a Local Defence Force Why
is it? Well \\v. will tell you
We have too many supermen
amongst us. We are too near
Florida and we are too far away
from Bobbie Burn's "A man's a
man for a' that, and for a' that,"
and foi these reasons we are un
able to make a success of even
a "Boys' Brigade."
Perhaps the good we may pet
out of this war will be the con-
viction that we are out of step]
with the other colonies and that j
we need to recover by inimedi |

Force, and placing it at the dis i
posal of the P.mnire, in the shape i
of a strong corps (if .Coast I >e-
fence) Artillery the only fn re
thai is of any use to US, so said'
the Secretary of Slate for the]
Colonies years ago, ,'nid so say
we now.
We have thrown away lots of
the peoples money f r other
things we ma) just, as well
throw away gome more in tins
way. If we had begun years ago
dfunc so and had today a well
established corps as that we sug-
gest, the minds of our anxious
friends would be much easier. To
successfully ope raw such a corps
we must take a leaf out of tie-
book of the West India Col on i S
and draw its membership as in-
discriminately as we draw our
jury.

The Kditor, The Tribune
Sir,
It appears, that in the estima
tion of llic Bahamas Govern
meat no citizen has any know
ledge or can be of any use un
less lie lie an official, a member
of tin- Legislature or an ex
Legislator.
This policy is illustrated fully
in the recent appointment of an
"Emergency Committee, a
Committee on which, if on any,
disinterested persons should be
appointed.
The probable result is that
the Governor's intentions will
be thwarted and the public not
benelitted.
On the committee of six what
do we find, three shopkeepers,
two Members of Assembly and
one official or looked at in ano-
ther way; four Members of As
sembly, one shopkeeper and one
official.
Human nature is human na-
t ire and every shopkeeper on
that committee in his heart
looks upon this move-of the
Governor's as rivaling his busi
ipss and interfering with his
chance of making a good thing
out of the war upheaval
I have in my mind six men of
probitv and good repute who
might have been employed with
satisfaction on this committee,
and another six if neccessary
We shall see how this business
has been worked, and what bene
tit it has been to the community.
Yours.
A CITIZEN.
Fresh Creek
Andros Island
August 20th 1914
Tlif Editor of The Tribune,
Sir,
I don't know whether the writer
of the letter signed "A Prole
lariat" in your paper of August
8th is trying to make sin and
stir up strife or not but I want
to stop people getting a false
idea about what lie says about
Fresh Creek.
All the people on Fresh Creek
are Chinch people except two
and these and the minister are
good friends. Many people at
Fresh Creek are quite happy
that the priest is J. P. and there
are hundreds of people on An-
dros, Church, Baptist and Me
thodist who know the good
nature and kind heart of Father
Webb in sickness and trouble
who are perhaps the best judges
as to his trying to copy the lowly
man of Nazareth who he so ear-
nestlv wants his people to know
and follow. I see that in your
paper of July 28th "One Present'
says the "Peacemaker" began
the fight here. The minister has
told me tint he has never report-
ed any one for taking any one
sponging without signing him,
and I believe him.
From so much Latin in his let-
ter I guess "One Present" is one
of those young men who have
just enough learning to make
j fools of themselves and not
enough to put to good use, be-
cause he seems ti justify people
for making a row if any one is
reported for breaking the laws of
their country.
I am, Sir. % ,
Yours &c,
An Inhabitant of Fresh
Creek for ovkr 25 years.
