GUNS IN t HE DISTANCE Saturday The Editor of the Tribune. Dear Sir, In your issue of yesterday (Friday) you state that ths sound of two guns in the distance was heard between 11.30 and 13 o'clock on Thursday night.

NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS
Subscribers to "The Tribune"
Monthly and upwards are re-
quested not to pay subscriptions
to the carriers but only at the
Office, or to a Collector from
the office, also to report to the
Office any neglect on the part
of the carriers to deliver their
paper.
:o:
The Tribune has from the out
Wl given the War relief Fund
its unqualified and unreserved
support and endorsement, and
very proud to see how gene-
ready our citizens have come
forward with their voluntary
contributions and the amount
realized; m this every man has
the right to go to any extent ho
pleases, he is the best judge as
to whether he can afford it on
not the greater the sacrifice he
makes the more is he to be ap-
plauded, an I we, hate to say
on word that might tend to
dampen the enthusiasm with
which this movemenl has been
carried forward. But when we
frn that al aninformal meet-
|g of the House of Assembly
hat the majority ol the mem-
bers, ,ledge 1 themselves to vote
0.000 from the public fund*
"> ^e VVar Relief Fund it be
comes our duty to record our
dissent.
The loyalty, patriotism, and
enthusiasm of our representa-
Jives have taken them off their
wet, and obscured their
prudence and good judgement.
We cannot see how in view
o the economic conditions that
ootam at present that ourrenre
SRntatives can shut their eves to
Jl'e fact that dark davs are be
tore us.
With our Sponge industry,
practirallv the back bone of the I
country suspended, our Sisal in
durtry the next Jn importance
down to unprofitable prpduc
ti Customs receipts falling far be
low the average, owing to de-
cease m importation ; with the
Uovernment finding it nectes
sary in stop government work;
the Consequent lack of employ-'
rnent.reduction of money in circu
Jation, and diminished spending
power of the people it seems
madness to vote away so much
which we are more than likely
to need for our increasing army
of unemployed and dependents.
It must be borne in mind that
the difficulties set forth above
will be augmented by the large
and continuous emigration to
Florida.
We have it from good authori
ty on the subject that the aver
age transactions on the Sponge
Exchange for the three months
ending 31st December is about
40,000 and that the high
est estimate for the like period
this year connot exceed "4,000
what then will be the result of
this difference ? Want.
From whom will relief be
asked?
How long will these deplor-
able conditions last? Who can
tell?
Let our representatives ask
themselves these questions, and
whether though they have acted
well, they have acted wisely.
It is very well to emulate the
West India Islands, but it must
be borne in mind that with them
economic conditions will be im-
proved by the war; German Beet
root sugar will be driven out of
the markets and West Indian
Cane sugar will boom, but with
us the war has closed the mar
kets of our staple product.sponge.
If the House of Assembly had
pledged itself to supplement the
voluntary subscriptions of our
citizens by an equal amount or
the amount required to make the
total from the Bahamas 5000
or 6000 we would have been
within the bounds of moderation,
of prudence, and of reason.
Remember that these .10,000
Will came from the people who
have already voluntarily genero
usly subscribed, and will not be
given with their consent but
nolens volens.
As we have before said .we are
m hearty accord with the VVar
Relief Fund, and we believe tiiat
I the demands upon it will be
I t^eat, but we are confident that
from the many and varied
I sources contributarv to this fund
that the supply wi'll far exceed
t le demand and there is no reason
(why any Colony in the spirit of
(rivalry should strain its resources
If as time goes on this fund
should fall short of its need>. an
appeal would be made, then
would be the time for strenuous
effort,'when it would be more in
reason to increase our public
contribution to "10000even, if
then necessary.

Dear Sir,
In your issue of yesterday

The Editor of The Tribune
Dear Sir:
Woe unto him that putteth bot
tie to his neighbour's lips. The
if the war was an excuse I
would still be of the same opin-
ion. However there is no excuse
and the practice is not only un-
fair to competitors but demor-
alizing to customers.
Who incurs the judgement of
the Scripture for the sake of
making trade?
Not law-makers I hope.
But hope disappoints us some-
times.
More of this when more of
that is done.
