V Zbc tribune Thursday. August 27. 1914 Be of Good Cheer While wo await news that will make future history, let us remember proudly, but without vainglory. England's record on Five Continents and on the Seven Seas. In the months of August and September. AUGUST Aug. 27. Algiers bombarded, 1816. "Owing to non-arrival of pa pers at the Marconi Station, Miami, we are without news up to the present." This is the announcement made yesterday by our Tele graph Department. Do we need anything more to convince us that we need some other more desirable, connection with the outside world, and a more reliable source, of our news supply than the receipt of newspapers by the operator at Miami; if we do, then we have only to see the quantity and quality of news re ceived by the papers of Kings ton, Jamaica daily; we have re peatedly in the past complained of this very lame arrangement and we do so now most empha tically. What does it mean, at this juncture when the public is an xious, most keenly anxious to know what is transpiring in Europe and at home ? It means that, as we have complained be fore, we get news altogether from the American point of view, and in that view just now Germany looms largely, and news from the American press carries a strong German taint. 1 he Emperor of Germany has not appealed in vain for the sympathy of the United States, Germany has it, not withstanding professions of racial identitv with Britain.. This is a matter that must be considered in a scheme of exten. sion of Wireless, or renewed Cable communication. News has been received this morning, and there is no indica-, tion in it of "Marching through i Georgia"(e.\cept by the Russians) every inch of the way seems to be stubbornly contested, and at no little loss to*-the Germans. Distant as we are from the "Storm Centre" we are repre sen ted there, and no one knows, just how many families here have contributed'their quota to the representation, both in the Navy and the Army. —:o:— "The Proclamation" of the Governor of Jamaica which we produce on our first page is interesting reading just now, and whether it will be necessary for the Executive here to take such strong measures may be seen later. It is to be noted that bv news front Jamaica "The British Government has prohibited the shipment of rice from England." We are thinking that good crops of Indian corn and Guinea corn would not be amiss in a month or two. Would they? A good Supply of house flag poles on hand bye and bye by some carpenter, and some two and three yard Union Jacks in stock by dealers would not turn out a bad investment. Latest War News e RADIOGRAMS. August 26th 1914. A great battle is still raging on the' French Frontier. The French war of fice states that French troops have been compelled to fall back in some places, while in others they have assumed the offensive. Over 3,000 German cavalrymen who had entered French country and were spreadingdes tructiou were met by an English and French force and were virtually annihilated before reinforcements could come to their aid. The French Cabinet has resigned in order to give President Poincaire opportunity for form ing a non political cabinet. Mr. Asquith in the Mouse of Commons stated that Earl Kit chener needs every man that it is possible to recruit. Russian advance into Ger many is continuing. The Hus sian troops have entirely cleared out German forces from East Prussia and in a fortnight ex pact to have 3.000.000 of fight tog men in Germany, and 2000 000 in Austria. The Japanese have landed at Kiao Chau under protection of fire from British warships. The Japanese have been reinforced by 3.000 Russians. I Special to The Nassau Guardian New York, 27. Heavy fighting continues along the Franco-German frontier. In some places the French are sue cessful in the field and in others they are manning their fortresses where they will make a firm stand. The situation is regard ed as hopeful. It is reported that the Germans put their full strength into the field, while the Allies still have enormous reserves. The French have attacked the Germans at Luneville and the French and English attacked thorn at Maubeuge. No definite result has been announced ye'. King Albert's Belgian Army defeated the Germans at Yil vorde between Brussels and Ant werp. The Russians are making amazing progress towards Ber lin. Japan is pressing her attack on Kiao Chau. Under rover of the guns of the combined fleets of France, England and Japan she has landed a large force lo carry out the assault of the Port. The Allied fleets are bombard ing Kiao Chau and are inflicting terriffic damage. Many build nigs are on fire. The Germans are stubbornly resisting the at tack, but the rapid move of the Allies immediately after the de deration of war took them by surprise. The hostile forces outnumber the Germans enormously and the fall of Kiao Chau is expected at any time. • — :o:— Miami Florida,37th. — A craeet* ship of ihe local wireless station li.is lieen established by Ibe government, Lieutenant Heiberg.

(28) War Notes — LONDON, SUNDAY Ostend yesterday was still Belgian, though the German riders to the North Sea had only to enter it to take it. But London is buzzing tonight with reports of the terrific battle being waged ona line extending lioin beyond Charier great fortresses ol Na ed under a heavy artil on two sides by the Ger So the French army gium at last is in deadly conflict with the Kaiser's legions. Another great army is w ithin striking distance and this perhaps explains what now is call* ed a mere inarch through Brussels and the non-occupation so far of Ghent, Bruges and Ostend. England kn^ws that Franca has SO many men in the field that thousands of ber Sons who had joined the colors hive been ordered to return here until notified they are needed in the light ing line, and that Germany and Austria have ordered up their last reserve B. What England is vitally interested in is the outcome of the big battle in Belgium, which despatches from Oudenarde, Malplaquet and even Waterloo, all names recalling the memory of Napoleon, have described as being waged along a front extending 250 to 300 miles. Walei loo was only ;|g^nigg1o between what would Ijjpncre wings of the gigantic opposing armies of to day. Therefore the English government and the English press are issuing solemn warnings to not regard the encounters between the Belgians and Germans as big battles or great victories. They realize that Mo the invest attack ana. in Bel

While deprecating the unreasoning enthusiasm over the minor actions of the campaigns, the Official press bureau significantly adds: — "In the western theatre of war, that in which England is most immediately interested, one really noteworthy success has been gained,although it should, perhaps, be called a German failure rather than an allied sue cess. At the end of three weeks the enemy lias not attempted to deliver an attack which, had it taken place and proved even partly succesful a week ago, might have interfered with the concentration of the French U armies and proved prejudicial to llieir subsequent operations. "It was apprehended that the enemy was ready first and would take full advantage of this circumstance. i'his sup position p^jped to be incorrect and the situation at this mo ment, in a military sense, is satisfactory." England with hundreds of the famous seats of its nobility trans formed ir.to auxil arv hospital-, is ready for the arrival of the men who will be stricken while fighting for their King and their country, but to quote the words of Mr. Winston Spencer Churchill, the Pint Lord of the Admiralty :—"England will not I"' beaten while there is an Eng lishman left to light." As she waits stolidly for the shock, undisturbed. Great Britain is stirred once more by the tragic news that the French are fighting like demons in three war sones; the Servians continue after a three day's battle in which the enemy lost 25,000 and choke their riversDrina and Save with Austrian dead; that France has accounted again for another Austrian vessel, the battle ship Zrinvi, of 14,800 tons, this time, and that the immense army of Russia,

Be of Good Cheer
While wo await news that will
make future history, let us remem-
ber proudly, but without vain-
glory. England's record on Five
Continents and on the Seven Seas.
In the months of August and Sep-
tember.
AUGUST

"Owing to non-arrival of pa
pers at the Marconi Station,
Miami, we are without news up
to the present."
This is the announcement
made yesterday by our Tele
graph Department. Do we need
anything more to convince us
that we need some other more
desirable, connection with the
outside world, and a more reli-
able source, of our news supply
than the receipt of newspapers
by the operator at Miami; if we
do, then we have only to see the
quantity and quality of news re
ceived by the papers of Kings
ton, Jamaica daily; we have re
peatedly in the past complained
of this very lame arrangement
and we do so now most empha
tically.
What does it mean, at this
juncture when the public is an
xious, most keenly anxious to
know what is transpiring in
Europe and at home ? It means
that, as we have complained be
fore, we get news altogether
from the American point of
view, and in that view just now
Germany looms largely, and
news from the American press
carries a strong German taint.
1 he Emperor of Germany has
not appealed in vain for the
sympathy of the United States,
Germany has it, not withstanding
professions of racial identitv with
Britain..
This is a matter that must be
considered in a scheme of exten.
sion of Wireless, or renewed
Cable communication.
News has been received this
morning, and there is no indica-,
tion in it of "Marching through i
Georgia"(e.\cept by the Russians)
every inch of the way seems to be
stubbornly contested, and at no
little loss to*-the Germans.
Distant as we are from the
"Storm Centre" we are repre
sen ted there, and no one knows,
just how many families here
have contributed'their quota to
the representation, both in the
Navy and the Army.
:o:
"The Proclamation" of the
Governor of Jamaica which we
produce on our first page is in-
teresting reading just now, and
whether it will be necessary for
the Executive here to take such
strong measures may be seen
later.
It is to be noted that bv news
front Jamaica "The British
Government has prohibited the
shipment of rice from England."
We are thinking that good crops
of Indian corn and Guinea
corn would not be amiss in a
month or two. Would they?
A good Supply of house flag
poles on hand bye and bye by
some carpenter, and some two
and three yard Union Jacks in
stock by dealers would not turn
out a bad investment.

A great battle is still
raging on the' French
Frontier. The French war of
fice states that French troops
have been compelled to fall

others they have assumed the
offensive.
Over 3,000 German cavalry-

tually annihilated before rein-
forcements could come to their
aid.
The French Cabinet has re-
signed in order to give President
Poincaire opportunity for form

Mr. Asquith in the Mouse of
Commons stated that Earl Kit

possible to recruit.
Russian advance into Ger

Heavy fighting continues along
the Franco-German frontier. In
some places the French are sue
cessful in the field and in others
they are manning their fortresses
where they will make a firm
stand. The situation is regard
ed as hopeful.
It is reported that the Germans
put their full strength into the
field, while the Allies still have
enormous reserves.
The French have attacked the
Germans at Luneville and the
French and English attacked
thorn at Maubeuge. No definite
result has been announced ye'.
King Albert's Belgian Army
defeated the Germans at Yil
vorde between Brussels and Ant
werp.
The Russians are making
amazing progress towards Ber
lin.
Japan is pressing her attack
on Kiao Chau. Under rover of
the guns of the combined fleets
of France, England and Japan
she has landed a large force lo
carry out the assault of the Port.
The Allied fleets are bombard
ing Kiao Chau and are inflicting
terriffic damage. Many build
nigs are on fire. The Germans
are stubbornly resisting the at
tack, but the rapid move of the
Allies immediately after the de
deration of war took them by
surprise.
The hostile forces outnumber
the Germans enormously and the
fall of Kiao Chau is expected at
any time.

War Notes

Ostend yesterday was still

with reports of the terrific battle
being waged ona line extending

So the French army
gium at last is in deadly conflict
with the Kaiser's legions.
Another great army is w ithin
striking distance and this per-
haps explains what now is call*
ed a mere inarch through Brus-
sels and the non-occupation so
far of Ghent, Bruges and Ostend.
England kn^ws that Franca
has SO many men in the field
that thousands of ber Sons who
had joined the colors hive been
ordered to return here until no-
tified they are needed in the light
ing line, and that Germany and
Austria have ordered up their
last reserve B.
What England is vitally in-
terested in is the outcome of the
big battle in Belgium, which
despatches from Oudenarde,
Malplaquet and even Waterloo,
all names recalling the memory
of Napoleon, have described as
being waged along a front ex-
tending 250 to 300 miles.
Walei loo was only ;|g^nigg1o

armies of to day. Therefore the

and Germans as big battles or

: are prepaujpg England for days
of woe ana mourning, to be fol-
lowedand this is an unalter-
able convictionby the destruc
tion of the man who forced this
mad war upon Europe.
While deprecating the unrea-
soning enthusiasm over the
minor actions of the campaigns,
the Official press bureau signi-
ficantly adds:
"In the western theatre of war,
that in which England is most
immediately interested, one
really noteworthy success has
been gained,although it should,
perhaps, be called a German
failure rather than an allied sue
cess. At the end of three weeks
the enemy lias not attempted to
deliver an attack which, had it
taken place and proved even
partly succesful a week ago,
might have interfered with the
concentration of the French
Uarmies and proved prejudicial to
llieir subsequent operations.
"It was apprehended that the
enemy was ready first and
would take full advantage of
this circumstance. i'his sup
position p^jped to be incorrect
and the situation at this mo
ment, in a military sense, is
satisfactory."
England with hundreds of the
famous seats of its nobility trans
formed ir.to auxil arv hospital-,
is ready for the arrival of the
men who will be stricken while
fighting for their King and
their country, but to quote the
words of Mr. Winston Spencer
Churchill, the Pint Lord of the
Admiralty :"England will not
I"' beaten while there is an Eng
lishman left to light."
As she waits stolidly for the
shock, undisturbed. Great Bri-
tain is stirred once more by the
tragic news that the French are
fighting like demons in three
war sones; the Servians continue
after a three day's battle in
which the enemy lost 25,000 and
choke their riversDrina and Save
with Austrian dead; that France
has accounted again for another
Austrian vessel, the battle ship
Zrinvi, of 14,800 tons, this time,
and that the immense army of

ADMIRAL JELLICOF.
Sir John Jellicoe, who is in com
mand of the Home Fleet, is on Is
55 years of age, and has long
bei n recognised as "the" man of
the Navy. He has been vari-
ously described as the Roberts01
the Kitchener of the Senior Ser-
vice. I || career started auspi
ciously when he .saw active ser-
vice in the Egyptian war as a
lieutenant in tbeAgincOUrt. The
next year lie received the Ho
prize of the Royal Naval Col-
lege. Three years later be re-
ceived, while lieutenant of the
Monarch, the Board of Trade
silver medal for gallantry in sav-
ing life at sea. Shortly after he
had his first experience of the
Admiralty, being appointed As
sistant to the Director of Naval
Ordinance.
His next experience was not
so pleasant, as lie was com -
mander of the ill-fated Victoria
when she was sunk off Tripoli
by the Camperdown. Seven
years later he again saw active
service in the expedition for the
relief of Legations where he act
ed as chief stall officer to Admir-
al Sir E.H.Seymour. Then here-
turned to the Admiralty as
Naval Assistant to the Control
|er. only to take up at the ex-
piration of his tenure of that
office the post of Director of
Naval Ordianance and Torpe-
does.
In Feburary, 1907, he attained
flag rank, and became in rapid
succession Rear-Admiral of the
Atlantic Fleet, a Sea Lord of the
Admiralty and Controller of the
Navy, Vice-Admiral Command-
ing the Atlantic Fleet, Vice-Ad-
miral Commanding Second Di
vision of the Home Fleet, and
finally Second Sea Lord of the
Admiralty. While occupying
that position he was especially
selected to hoist his flag in the

Paris. August 24.The French
war office tonight issued the fol
lowing announcement:
"The French and English plan
of attack having failed, owing

"West of the Meuse the Eng
lish army, on the French left
was attacked by Tjcrmans, but
behaved admirably, holding its
ground with traditional stead
fastness.
"The French assumed the
offensive with two army corps,
an African, Algerian Arabs, bri
gade in front line, and carried
away by their eagerness, they
were received by a murderous
fire. They stood their ground
and by a counter attack, inflict
ed severe loss on the Germans.
"East of the Meuse, the French
advanced across difficult country
and made a vigorous attack-
when they emerged from the
wood, but were obliged to fall
back after a stiff fight south of
the Seinois river. Under orders of
General Joffrie, the Preach and
English troops withdrew to
ci ivering positional
"Our troops are intact. Our
Cavalry in no way suffered Our
artillery has affirmed itssuperio
rity.
"Our losses are heavy, but it
would be premature to enume
rate tlipm. It would be equally
so to enumerate those of the
Germans, who suffered so heavily
that thev were obliged to aban
don their counter attack and
establish themselves in fresh
positions in Lorraine.
"It is to be regretted that
offensive operations planned fail
to achieve their purpose, as the
'resultof difficulties impossible
to foresee. It would have had im
portant bearing on the .war, but
our defences remain intact in the
presence of an already weakened
enemy.
"Every Frenchman will de
plore the temporary abandon
ment of portions of Alsace and
Lorraine, which we had occu
pied, and certain parts of the na
tional territory will suffer from
events of which they will be the
theater.
"The ordeal is inevitable, but
temporary. Thus, detachments
of cavalry belonging to an unat
tached division operating on the
extreme right, have penetrated
to Roubaix, six miles north o
Lille, and are scouring the dis
trict, which is defended only by
territorial reservists.
"Our valiant people will know
how to find courage to support,
this trial, with unfaltering faith
in the final success, which is not
to be doubted.
"In telling to the country the
whole truth, the government
and military authorities give it
the strongest proof of their con
lidence in victory, which depends
only on our perseverance and te
nacity."
