A meeting on the "Volunteer Movement" was held in St. Agnes schoolroom on Thursday evening and was largely attended. His Lordship, The Bishop of Nassau occupied the chair, he stated the object of the'meeting and justified his advocacy of the movement as a priest by "the justness and Tightness of Fnglaiid in entering into the war. The Rev. W. II. YVeigAtl, Chaplain to the Bishop made a strong appeal to the Patriotism of the men, he said he did not think that any of them would shrink from the call of duty and hore testimony to the bravery of our seamen as observed by himself in his many years of travel in Bahamian waters. Mr. George M. Cole gave an eloquent and informatory speech in which he recited the cause, and the progiess of the war, he showed how England tried to avoid war until honour and jus tice compelled her to draw tin sword. He gave a glowing des cription of the deeds of valour and heroism performed by our troops at the front, and told how they had maintained the tradi tions of the past and exceeded the expectations of the present. Mr. Stephen A. Dillet took as his theme the ever memorable signal from the famous "Viet > ry," of the immortal Nelson, "England expects that every man this day will do his duty" lie denounced unsparingly a pernicious sentiment that was growing with regard to this movement, that was calculated to promote dissension and to in tenupt that unanimity which should exist at this lime. His Lordship made some brief remarks an I called upon the meeting to close with singing that*"dld hymn and prayer" God save the King. Commandant "r:wford re ceived the names .if sj Volun teers. The last meeting of the serieson the Volunteer Movement, held in the schoolroom of Sandi"^ lands Village last night was largely attended and was the nly one which included men and women. The Rev. Crofts, Rector of the Parish occupied the chair and briefly stated the object of the meeting. Mr. L. Walton Young, M. L. A. addressed the meeting earnestly and forcibly and said that in this war there was the opportunity of their lives to prove their loyalty to the nation of which they were citizens, an opportunity which would not be theirs again. I le was confident he said that Sandilands would not be a whit behind any other section of the community. Mr. George M. Cole, M. L. A. gave another of his enthusias tically patriotic and instructive speeches for which he is notable in the movement. He succeeded perfectly in giving his hearers a good comprehension of the war, in arousing their enthusiasm and in vivifying their loyalty We are very sure that after this meeting and Mr. Cole's speech particularly, Sandilands Village is better informed as to the War. Mr. S \, Dillet s iid that this was the first meeting on The Volunteer Movement at which he had the pleasure of saying Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen. He said that this was a testing time, it tested men's hearts and women's hearts too. He asked would the women of Sandilands keep their husbands back, to ^ iieh their was a hearty response 'No. Pel '.hem go." \fter a few brief remarks by the Chairman the meeting was closed with a vcrv hearty render ing of the National Anthem.

The BritisrTrfrTicers present vouch for the fact that German officers were observed firing at their own men in fie water with pistols ami that several were shot before their eyes under these peculiar circumstances. The destroyer Defender was actually picking up wounded with her boats when she was driven off by the approach of another German cruiser and had to leave two of her boats, containing an officer and nine men behind. It was feared that these h.ul been made prisoners but happily submarine E4 arrived and brought the British party home. As it was not possible to accommodate the 30 Germans in the submarine they were allowed to leturn to Germany in the boat under the charge of an ober-lieutenant who was unwounded.

OUR CONQUERING HEROES.
How The British Naval
Victory waa Secured.
Trapped Germane' Heavy Loae.
Hack from the North Sea hive
Come battered British warships
bearing dead and wounded heroes
of the fight off Heligoland, in
which a smashing blow whs
struck at the Germans.
The British victory appears to
have been of much greater impor-
tance than was at fust reported
In the eailiest official report it
was stated that three Gernan
cruisers had been sunk and two
destroyers but our men are confi-
dent thai thi numbei was greatly
exceeded, and that ten destroyers
received their death-blow.
A communication now issued by
the Press Hiiieau states that ac-
cording to iiifmmation derived
from a trustwmthy source seven
German destmyers and torpedo
boats have a 1 rived at Kiel in a
damaged condition, and it i un-
^^rsiood that others have sunk in
{Hpr vicinity of the Canal.
T Tin' ill-.-.il have been buned with
.naval honouis, and the wounded,
are in hospital receiving
every care, and longing like
theiej, brothers in the sister
civ ice for a speedy recovery in ol-
der that they may the sooner get
back Into action.
From the wounded a more
graphic account of the fight has
been learned than was contained
in the official reports.
As one bluejacket put it, our
leading ships were the live bait
which drew the Germans into the
trap that had been laid for them,
and inflicted upon them heavy
losses.
In typically British fashion every
effort was made to save the men
whom we had decisively beaten,
and in acknowledging this the
Germans say "it must be admitted
that the British, without stopping
to consider their own danger, sent
out lifeboats to save our men."

NEW SHIP'S FINE FIGHT
Brilliant Work Of The
Arethusa.
German Officera Shoot Their
Own Wounded.
The following supplementary
account of the battle was issued
by the Admiralty :
In the action of the 28th ult. off
Heligoland, the light armoured
cruiser Aiethusa, and not the
Amethyst, as previously stated,
played the principal part.
This vessel, which is the first of
the 20 built under the present
Board of Admiralty carried the
board pennant of Commodore
lyrwhiti, commanding the flotillas
of the First Fleet.
The piinciple of the operation
was a scooping movement by a
strong force of destroyeis heaoed
by the Arethusa, to cut the Ger-
man light craft from home and en-
gage them at leisure in the open
sea.
The Arethusa, leading the line
of destroyers, was first attacked by
two German cruisers, and was
lb*.rply engaged for 35 minutes at
a range of about 3.000 yards, with
the result that s'ie Ru> damage and casudlies, but drove
off 1 he two Geiman ciuisers one
of win. li she seriously injined with
her 0 in. gun.
Later in the morning she engag-
ed at intervals two other German
vessels who were encountered in
the confused fighting which fol-
lowed and in company with the
Fearless and the Light Cruiser
Squadron, contributed to.
The Sinking of The Cruiser
Mlanz.
In these encounters the Arethusas'
speed was reduced to ten knots,
and many of her guns were dis.
abled, and at one.o'clock she was
about to be attacked by two other
cruisers of- the German "town"
class when the Battle Cruiser
Squadron most opportunely arrived
and pursued and sank these new
antagonists.
The armoured protection, speed,
and fighting qualities of the Are-
thusa class have now been vindi-
cated, and this is satisfactory in
view of the fact that a large num-
ber of these valuable and unique
vessels will join the fleet in the
next few months.
It must be remembered that the
Arethusa had only been commis-
sioned a few days before as an
emergency ship, and that the ofli.
cers and crew were new to each
other and to her. In these circum-
stances the series of actions which
they fought during the morning is
extremely creditable, and adds
another page to the annals of a
famous ship.
Although only two of the enemy's
destroyeis were actually observed
to sink, most of the 18 or 20 boats
rounded up and attacked weie well
punished and only saved them
selves by scattered fight.
The superior gun power and
strength of the British destroyers
ship for ships was conclusively de-
monstrated. The destroyers them-
selves did not hesitate to engage
the enemy's cruisers both with guns
and torpedoes, with hardihood,
and two of them, the Laurel and
Liberty, got.

and other information from Ger-
man sources confirm the report of

A meeting on the "Volunteer
Movement" was held in St. Ag-
nes schoolroom on Thursday
evening and was largely attend-
ed.
His Lordship, The Bishop of
Nassau occupied the chair, he
stated the object of the'meeting
and justified his advocacy of the
movement as a priest by "the
justness and Tightness of Fnglaiid
in entering into the war.
The Rev. W. II. YVeigAtl,
Chaplain to the Bishop made a
strong appeal to the Patriotism
of the men, he said he did not
think that any of them would
shrink from the call of duty and
hore testimony to the bravery
of our seamen as observed by
himself in his many years of
travel in Bahamian waters.
Mr. George M. Cole gave an
eloquent and informatory speech
in which he recited the cause,
and the progiess of the war, he
showed how England tried to
avoid war until honour and jus
tice compelled her to draw tin
sword. He gave a glowing des
cription of the deeds of valour
and heroism performed by our
troops at the front, and told how
they had maintained the tradi
tions of the past and exceeded
the expectations of the present.
Mr. Stephen A. Dillet took as
his theme the ever memorable
signal from the famous "Viet >
ry," of the immortal Nelson,
"England expects that every
man this day will do his duty"
lie denounced unsparingly a
pernicious sentiment that was
growing with regard to this
movement, that was calculated
to promote dissension and to in
tenupt that unanimity which
should exist at this lime.
His Lordship made some brief
remarks an I called upon the
meeting to close with singing
that*"dld hymn and prayer"
God save the King.
Commandant "r:wford re
ceived the names .if sj Volun
teers.
The last meeting of the series-
on the Volunteer Movement,
held in the schoolroom of Sandi-
"^
lands Village last night was
largely attended and was the
nly one which included men
and women.
The Rev. Crofts, Rector of the
Parish occupied the chair and
briefly stated the object of the
meeting.
Mr. L. Walton Young, M. L.
A. addressed the meeting earn-
estly and forcibly and said that
in this war there was the
opportunity of their lives to
prove their loyalty to the nation
of which they were citizens, an
opportunity which would not be
theirs again.
I le was confident he said that
Sandilands would not be a whit
behind any other section of the
community.
Mr. George M. Cole, M. L. A.
gave another of his enthusias
tically patriotic and instructive
speeches for which he is notable
in the movement. He succeeded
perfectly in giving his hearers a
good comprehension of the war,
in arousing their enthusiasm
and in vivifying their loyalty
We are very sure that after
this meeting and Mr. Cole's
speech particularly, Sandilands
Village is better informed as to
the War.
Mr. S \, Dillet s iid that this
was the first meeting on The
Volunteer Movement at which
he had the pleasure of saying
Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gen-
tlemen. He said that this was a
testing time, it tested men's
hearts and women's hearts too.
He asked would the women
of Sandilands keep their hus-
bands back, to ^ iieh their was
a hearty response 'No. Pel
'.hem go."
\fter a few brief remarks by
the Chairman the meeting was
closed with a vcrv hearty render
ing of the National Anthem. .
()n the Commandant amiounc
ing I am ready to take names, it
looked as though the entire au-

IRISH HOME RULE LAW
SUSPENDED FOR A YEAR.
Vide Evening News. Sept. 16
1914.
London Sept. 16
The Home Rule Bill will go on
the statute book this week, but
its operation will be suspended
for a year. The same applies to
the Welsh,disestablishment Bill.
In the meantime both the Gov-
ernment and the Irish party
pledge themselves to introduce
an amending bill to satisfy de-
mands of Lister on Home Rule.
This was the net result yesterday,
when the Prime Minister intro-
duced a special bilfgiving effect
to these arrangements.
Mr Boiar Law the leader of
the opposition was the only one
who replied on behalf of the op
position. There were no un-
seemly scents He charged the
Govt. with a breach of faith in
insisting 011 proceeding with the
bill and taking advantage of the
loyal desire >f the Unionists at
this crisis to force the measure
through. He pledgedhM party,
without conditions, to support
Ulster bv every means to resist
the Home Rule bill if it was at
tempted to impose the bill upon
Ulster by coercion.
Mr. John Redmond the leader
of the Irish Party then proceed
ed to show liiat the National-
ista and not the Unionists hid
reason, if any, to complain of
tin postponement of the bill,
which but for the war would
have now have become law. At
the same tune he hoped, with

settlement possible.
