London, Sept 7th. Governor, Bahamas. The following lias just been issued by the British war office: General Joffres plans are being steadily carried out. The allied forces are acting on the offensive and have been successful in checking and forcing hack in a North Eeasterly direction the German forces opposed to them (Signed) Harcourt. — :o:— Special to the Nassau Guardian There has been a great battle from Mantenil to Verdun in which four million men were engaged. The battle frontage was 1 20 miles Ion;;. The French Army under Gen eral Jaffa turned the German left wing and the British troops turned the right wing. The Germans have retreated from Lille. Over two Hundred went down with the Pathfindir when thai ship was blown up by a mine in the North Sea. LATER It is reported that the Allies have won a great victory at Precy sur Oise. 1'fie German Imperial Guard commanded by the Crown Prince is reported to have been annihilated. PIOKRD IIP September 8th 1914. I The greatest battle of the present war is now being waged. It began On Sunday and the front extends from Nanteuil 1 Haoudauin through Meaux to Verdun a distance of ion mil) I, one part being within 2^ miles of Paris. There appears to be the dan ger that the Germans intend a -real st rage tic movement which would cut oil the Allies centre, and forcing them either lo be destroyed or flee into Swit/.er land as was done in 1870. The Russians report enntinnus victories and apparently have the last strong Austrian foil in a nearly s urrounded. If 'Russians take it, the way to lerlin is then open to them. The Kaiser is at Nancy direct ing the movements of the Ger man troops. The Captain was the only o*ficer saved when the cruiser Pathfinder was blown up by a mine. The Allies have won a great battle at Crecy sur Oise. The Imperial Guard under crown Prince Wilhelm is reported to have been annihilated. The Russians have entered Czarnowitz, 140 miles Southeast of Lemburg. Australian Dreadnought is chasing the German cruiser Nur enburg in Hawaiiian waters. The Austrian army is retreating from the Vistula and Bug Rivers after enormous los ses. There is evidence of a possi ble famine in Austria. Germany has rejected Austria's request for a loan, and German bankers have taken similar ac tion. The British cruiser Warrior is reported stranded after an en gagement with the cruiser Goe ben. The Germans have attacked the Allies on the Meuse east of Paris and the fighting is fierce A German aeroplane was brought to earth by Belgians at Lottaghem and the two occupants captured. 25,000 people have been re moved from the suburbs of Paris in order that their houses may bo destroyed, thus giving a clear range for the French guns. Belgian volunteers am! Germans light near Ghent and the Belgians retired ii go I order The Allies have advanced their left wing in the region of Paris without serious opposi Hon. Four men were killed, 13 wounded and 2^5 missing from the cruiser Pathfinder, which struck a mine. Germans are reported preparing for military action in South Afiica. Two battered English vessels are the cruisers Lancaster and Hampshire which had been in a battle with the German cruisers Genisenau and ScbanhartL It is reported that Germans have destroyed Dinant. The Russians continue serious engagements north west of Lemberg. AN OUT ISLAND IN WAR TIME. Mlrbour Island^ Sept. 5. 1914. To the lay-mind, the prevailing ignorance of the population of our Capital City •CJpjpceming the out islands, seems as accountable, at the assumption, of a kind of ultra-superiority upon its part which seems somewhat childish and ridiculous, duly considering the fact that mostro the prominent citizens, are either actually out islanders, or of out island descent. It may not there fore be unseemly to give a brief account of how this terrible Fu ropean catastrophe is affecting out island life. The particular out island with which we have to do viz. Harbour Island may roughly be said to be divided into two distinct bodies, those who feel this war imperially and those: who feel it personally. The form er eagerly await the scanty news —scanty alas owing to the lack of fore-sight of some of our "City" Legislators in refusing an "all red" news service—and such news is passed around the town in a wonderful rapidity, and re-read, and discussed until the arirvsl of the next cables. The latter— comprising unfor tunately a proportiflp of *our population who never manifest ed the slightest interest not even that which they would have given t->a local squabble until food stuffs began to be dearer, and then, their interest, became somewhat considerable The dearness of food stuffs is ofco'irsea fact, and if it contin ues the lot of the poorer and less thrifty members of the commu nity will not be exactly a happy one. The same tendencies have been seen as have been noted in the columns of "The Tribune"viz the buving in of somewhat undue quantities of provisions by the wealthier people, and, in cer tain cases, the somewhat unfair use in the prices of conunodi ties. One of course, clearly understands that prices must rise in future, and as prices rise abroad. But, the attempt to realize extra profit upon stock now in hand, strikes one as being to say the east, neither Imperial nor Brotherly; for after all it is as usual the poorer person*--who "have been unable to |Jry in a st ck, who bear the brunt. We are glad to say however, that cer tain storekeepers have been pat4

i riots enough to hold somewhat higher jdeals. We are glad of (me thing and that is scffar as wexan gather, 'at neither of the Places of Worship has there been any talk of the semi blasphemous type which malj^i the Almighty a I ttirt and parcel of the British Empire; but th Devotions have simplv been that God would bliss tlie right, and would bring a speedy and lasting peace. At the Anglican Cliurch tlie Rect< >r has preached sermons ask ing his people to be united and loyal, not only in prayer but as citizens. He lias expressed himself very strongly against those, to use his own words who would be mean spirited enough to make apital out <>f n world wide tastrophe A special Mass is bepsaid every Wednesday mom (or guidance and peace which Is been very well attended. It i^ the opinion for loyal out anders thai tiny should be ked to join in any scheme, of d &c. to tli; Motherland, and hat In this case at any rate icy he treated upon an eqalitv with the city of Nassau. Hie dial conclusion of nearly every utislander wlm is not directly ^interested in business, is that if 1110 waY continues, the sooner His ^KxcellencyBjie tio\ ''ruorcan see Si'-' wav to-J^Til'nv the excellent W'xinoleof the Governor of M imaica in regard to food stuffs jBthe better. S. L. N. C. 1 VILLA COULD TAKE LESSONS Perhaps it will be rememAberedrd that European nations I looked on the methods of Gen' i il Villa, who li.is been fighting flrt ||r battles of i lie constitutional ^ ists in Mexico, with considerable Idisfavour, as they thought them i extiemelv barb irons. That doughty warrior now thas an opportunity to judge fiirly well what the cultured •-nations of Europe considercivi b/.ed warfare, i He was accused of murdering ) men, outraging women, and des troying property, From all ac. counts the Germans who have overrun Belgium have not bi.cn at all behind Villa in his %  methods and could probably ygive that rather warm lighter I many pointers on how to secure j the maximum of suffering in military operations. Villa was never accused of sending airships over a sleeping town and Killing women and children while they Wy in beds. He was never accused of killing off, by wholesale, noncombatants and neutrals. He was never accused ot wantonly shooting women, fleeing from his invasion. It mayin|erest him to know that there are means of cruelty that never ocenre I to him of which he may learn by closely observing the operations of the armies in effete Europe. Villa should have waited if he wanted to learn all the refinements of war as practiced by those who would not recognize him be cause his war methods were said to he barbarous. The Miami Herald. September 1st 1914 — :o. — DONT ROCK THE BOAT. By \V. H. Williams. Not long ago two trust magnates, a German and an Austrian, when giving evidence before the commissioners engaged in probing for the real causes contributary to the sudden and unreasonable increase of ihe cost of Living in the l/hited States since the breaking out of the great war in Europe made a statement which has attracted attention all over this Country They said that if the United States would put an embargo on foodstuffs this country could put a stop to the great war. On the strength of this not a few hysterical persons have jumped at the conclusion that the United States should at once act upon the suggestion offered. It is hardly worth while to point out that the statement comes from men who were try. ing to free themselves from the onus attaching to the perpetra tion of one of the meanest swin dies ever practiced upon the American people, or to take the time to call attention to the fact that the statement is inac curate and vhollj untrustworthy on the face of it; but it may be worth while to say that the action Suggested by the German and Austrian would constitute a flagrant violation of the dec laration of neutrality on the part of the United States Under existing conditions, with the commerce of Germany, and Austria swept from the si as, neither of those countries could hope to import one p cnul of frfUlstuffs from the United States or from any other country on this side of the Atlantic, while England and Era nee can do so suggest; discrimina 1 and France time shut th out of a pro his products. — Miami Her Sept. i, 1914.

one part being within 2^ miles

AN OUT ISLAND
IN WAR TIME.
Mlrbour Island^
Sept. 5. 1914.
To the lay-mind, the prevail-
ing ignorance of the population
of our Capital City CJpjpceming
the out islands, seems as account-
able, at the assumption, of a
kind of ultra-superiority upon its
part which seems somewhat
childish and ridiculous, duly
considering the fact that mostro
the prominent citizens, are either
actually out islanders, or of out
island descent. It may not there
fore be unseemly to give a brief
account of how this terrible Fu
ropean catastrophe is affecting
out island life.
The particular out island with
which we have to do viz.
Harbour Island may roughly
be said to be divided into two
distinct bodies, those who feel
this war imperially and those:
who feel it personally. The form
er eagerly await the scanty news
scanty alas owing to the lack
of fore-sight of some of our
"City" Legislators in refusing
an "all red" news serviceand
such news is passed around the
town in a wonderful rapidity,
and re-read, and discussed until
the arirvsl of the next cables.
The lattercomprising unfor
tunately a proportiflp of *our
population who never manifest
ed the slightest interest not even
that which they would have
given t->a local squabble until
food stuffs began to be dearer,
and then, their interest, became
somewhat considerable
The dearness of food stuffs is
ofco'irsea fact, and if it contin
ues the lot of the poorer and less
thrifty members of the commu
nity will not be exactly a happy
one. The same tendencies have
been seen as have been noted in
the columns of "The Tribune"viz
the buving in of somewhat undue
quantities of provisions by the
wealthier people, and, in cer
tain cases, the somewhat unfair
use in the prices of conunodi
ties.
One of course, clearly under-
stands that prices must rise in
future, and as prices rise abroad.
But, the attempt to realize extra
profit upon stock now in hand,
strikes one as being to say the
east, neither Imperial nor
Brotherly; for after all it is as
usual the poorer person*--who
"have been unable to |Jry in a
st ck, who bear the brunt. We
are glad to say however, that cer
tain storekeepers have been pat-
4


i
riots enough to hold somewhat
higher jdeals.
We are glad of (me thing and
that is scffar as wexan gather,
'at neither of the Places of Wor-
ship has there been any talk of
the semi blasphemous type
which malj^i the Almighty a
I ttirt and parcel of the British
Empire; but th Devotions have
simplv been that God would
bliss tlie right, and would bring
a speedy and lasting peace.
At the Anglican Cliurch tlie
Rect< >r has preached sermons ask
ing his people to be united and
loyal, not only in prayer but as
citizens. He lias expressed him-
self very strongly against those,
to use his own words who would
be mean spirited enough to make
apital out <>f n world wide
tastrophe A special Mass is be-
psaid every Wednesday mom
(or guidance and peace which
Is been very well attended.
It i^ the opinion for loyal out
anders thai tiny should be
ked to join in any scheme, of
d &c. to tli; Motherland, and
hat In this case at any rate
icy he treated upon an eqalitv
with the city of Nassau. Hie
dial conclusion of nearly every
utislander wlm is not directly

1 VILLA
COULD TAKE LESSONS
Perhaps it will be remem-
Aberedrd that European nations
I looked on the methods of Gen-
' i.il Villa, who li.is been fighting
flrt||r battles of i lie constitutional
^ ists in Mexico, with considerable
Idisfavour, as they thought them
i extiemelv barb irons.
That doughty warrior now
thas an opportunity to judge
fiirly well what the cultured
-nations of Europe considercivi
b/.ed warfare,
i He was accused of murdering
) men, outraging women, and des
troying property, From all ac-
. counts the Germans who have
' overrun Belgium have not bi.cn
at all behind Villa in his
.methods and could probably
ygive that rather warm lighter
I many pointers on how to secure
j the maximum of suffering in
military operations.
Villa was never accused of
sending airships over a sleeping
town and Killing women and
children while they Wy in
beds. He was never accused of
killing off, by wholesale, non-
combatants and neutrals. He
was never accused ot wantonly
shooting women, fleeing from
his invasion.
It mayin|erest him to know
that there are means of cruelty
that never ocenre I to him of
which he may learn by closely
observing the operations of the
armies in effete Europe. Villa
should have waited if he wanted
to learn all the refinements of
war as practiced by those who
would not recognize him be
cause his war methods were
said to he barbarous.

DONT ROCK THE BOAT.
By \V. H. Williams.
Not long ago two trust mag-
nates, a German and an Aus-
trian, when giving evidence be-
fore the commissioners engaged
in probing for the real causes
contributary to the sudden and
unreasonable increase of ihe cost
of Living in the l/hited States
since the breaking out of the
great war in Europe made a
statement which has attracted
attention all over this Country
They said that if the United
States would put an embargo
on foodstuffs this country could
put a stop to the great war.
On the strength of this not a
few hysterical persons have
jumped at the conclusion that
the United States should at once
act upon the suggestion offered.
It is hardly worth while to
point out that the statement
comes from men who were try.
ing to free themselves from the
onus attaching to the perpetra
tion of one of the meanest swin
dies ever practiced upon the
American people, or to take the
time to call attention to the
fact that the statement is inac
curate and vhollj untrustworthy
on the face of it; but it may be
worth while to say that the
action Suggested by the German
and Austrian would constitute
a flagrant violation of the dec
laration of neutrality on the part
of the United States
Under existing conditions,
with the commerce of Germany,
and Austria swept from the si as,
neither of those countries could
hope to import one p cnul of
frfUlstuffs from the United States
or from any other country on
this side of the Atlantic, while
England and Era nee can do so
suggest;

and France
