HADDON-SIMTH The above telegram has been transmitted from His Excellency the Governor. Great excitement prevailed in town this morning when it became known that a Man-of War was in the offing; people began to get up the hills, on housetops, and up mast heads of vessels at the docks to get a glimpse of the approaching stranger ; when the ship came nearer and it was discovered that her funnels were white, or appeared to be white then it spread around that the ship was a German, a good many timid people were really alarmed. When the ship came near enough to distinguish her flag and it was discovered that she flew the Union Jack and White Ensign of England, and was a Inend and not an enemy alarm and fear gave way to joy and welcome. When the ship came to an anchor in the roadstead of Hog island and her boat was seen en Wrfog the harbour, hundreds thronged the water front and discovered the friendlv visitor to e His Majesty's Ship "Essex* nersteampinnacelandedat !!aw son Sq. the Captain and aim ther officer who accompanied by the Port Officer proceeded to Government Hcuse in His Excellency's Auto-Car; also the Sky-Pilot" and the Pavmaster who walked around town, and some stewards who were looking after the needs of the innerman. The boat lay alongside the Sch. "Julia Elizabeth" and the crowd on the port side of her deck listed her to the danger point, a force of police was neccessary to clear her decks. The "Essex" is 9,800 Tons ship witlfa crew of 700 men; her stay here will be a few hours only. —:o:— The Motor "Frances E." arrived at Miami at 6. 30 this morning.

M Oct., 1914 To the Editor of The Tribune Sir, A report was at large quite early this morning to the effect that, the "Karlshrue" had been captured off the Island of 1'orf.o Rico. Also, that the Allies had driven back the entire German Line comprising the left wing centre and right wing. The report continue! that, the Governor had received a "Wireless" to the above effert late last night. This information was told to a citizen by a policeman : and the aforesaid citizen interviewed Mr. Bums the Superintendent of Telegraphs respecting it, who %  aid that ht knew nothing of it; and had not received such or any other telegram. There is a pernicious practice current of raising and circulating reports of stupendous falsity which are accepted at their real worthlessness by sensible men and women, but there are among us a great many belonging to the faint heart family upon whom such reports have a decidedly demoralizing effect resolving into nervous prostrati< 11. At this time of storm and stress when our pulses are beating and our hearts throbbing at evet)' sound that comes from the seat of war, 1 regard it as criminully eruel to start reports calculated to unnerve us, Or, to unduly elevate our hopes. The very least, and mildest judgment that can be passed upon him who is guilty of such things, is that he is an incorrigible ass. One need only read the Con tribution List of the Bahamas Relief fund to be convinced that, the sympathy and anxiety which is expressed in every penny of it, is of too sacred a character to permit the feeling of the participants to be played with by every ass that brays. I tell you what I would dearly like to see—The erection of publie slocks on the Park, at an elevation of six feet, and the originators of these false reports, placed in them for twelve hours from 6 a.m., to 6 p.m., anil the linger of scorn and ridicule pointed at them by the populace. This I feel would be a terrible, but none too terrible a punishment to those tafio are of a class that should know better than to promulgate lies. I guarantee thai "the Stocks" would stop the craze. And the like punishment should applj to others ciiincs as well. Yours, P ANXIOUS.

Ilisprcsenceat Nancy nerved the French to a superb and successful defence. When Inwent to East Piussia the Russians routed General von Hindenburg's great army, and General von IlinJenliurg, disgraced, has given place to General von Mogen". Various other generals have been reduced or retired because of their ill success, and it is reported here that the German Genera! Staff is dissatisfied because the war loid his replaced Field Marshal von Moltke as head of the General Staff and upset all the plan of campaign. There is a report, too, that Gene MI Mir' Kluck has been notified that he inu-t do or die, and tii't this cxpl nns the tremendous effort* of the German right wing, efforts which will cost many thousands of German lives without gaining compensation or advantage, In (act. it is the opinion of military experts here that the mo. rale of the German army-has been destroyed and that the desperate fighting on its riglit wing is its last despairing effort before beginnitig a general retreat. Prom Paris at the usual midafternoon hour yesterday was issued the usual communication, interpreting the situation along the battle line. Above all stood out the presence of the German cavalry near Lille, as the crow flies hardly ten minutes from the lielgian frontier, and behind them German forces moving on a line between Tourcoing and Armentieres almost on the Belgian frontier. From Belgium comes nothing to indicate any change in the situation before Ant werp, except a brief line tucked af the bottom of the Paris official statement asserting that the German attacks along the line of the river Rupel and the river Nethe have failed. The British press this morning takes occasion to emphasize, that while the battle of the Aisne holds first claim in the matter of sentim ntal interest, the gigantic operations of the Russian, German and Austrian armies in the east may first bring die solution of the war. Petrograd official statements continue to repeat in a general way what h f> been accepted here as fact for two days that—the German army along the Fast Prussian frontier has been more or less routed and cut to pieces, but as this is only a small portion of the front it is exceedingly hard to get anything like a clear-nit perspective of the Conflict.

interpreting the situation along

the presence of the German cavalry
near Lille, as the crow flies hardly
ten minutes from the lielgian fron-
tier, and behind them German
forces moving on a line between
Tourcoing and Armentieres almost
on the Belgian frontier.
From Belgium comes nothing to
indicate any change in the situa-

line tucked af the bottom of the
Paris official statement asserting
that the German attacks along the
line of the river Rupel and the river
Nethe have failed.
The British press this morning
takes occasion to emphasize, that
while the battle of the Aisne holds
first claim in the matter of senti-
m ntal interest, the gigantic opera-

Austrian armies in the east may
first bring die solution of the war.
Petrograd official statements
continue to repeat in a general way
what h f> been accepted here as fact
for two days thatthe German
army along the Fast Prussian fron-

only a small portion of the front it
is exceedingly hard to get anything

HADDON-SIMTH
The above telegram has been
transmitted from His Excellency
the Governor.
Great excitement prevailed in
town this morning when it be-
came known that a Man-of
War was in the offing; peo-
ple began to get up the hills, on
housetops, and up mast heads of
vessels at the docks to get a
glimpse of the approaching
stranger ; when the ship came
nearer and it was discovered
that her funnels were white, or
appeared to be white then it
spread around that the ship was
a German, a good many timid
people were really alarmed.
When the ship came near
enough to distinguish her flag
and it was discovered that she
flew the Union Jack and White
Ensign of England, and was a
Inend and not an enemy alarm
and fear gave way to joy and
welcome.
When the ship came to an
anchor in the roadstead of Hog
island and her boat was seen en
Wrfog the harbour, hundreds
thronged the water front and
discovered the friendlv visitor to
e His Majesty's Ship "Essex*

who walked around town, and
some stewards who were look-
ing after the needs of the inner-
man.
The boat lay alongside the
Sch. "Julia Elizabeth" and the
crowd on the port side of her
deck listed her to the danger
point, a force of police was nec-
cessary to clear her decks.
The "Essex" is 9,800 Tons

M Oct., 1914
To the Editor of The Tribune
Sir,
A report was at large quite
early this morning to the effect
that, the "Karlshrue" had been
captured off the Island of 1'orf.o
Rico. Also, that the Allies had
driven back the entire German
Line comprising the left wing
centre and right wing.
The report continue! that,
the Governor had received a
"Wireless" to the above effert
late last night.
This information was told to
a citizen by a policeman : and
the aforesaid citizen interviewed
Mr. Bums the Superintendent of
Telegraphs respecting it, who
aid that ht knew nothing of it;
and had not received such
or any other telegram.
There is a pernicious practice
current of raising and circula-
ting reports of stupendous falsi-
ty which are accepted at their
real worthlessness by sensible
men and women, but there are
among us a great many belong-
ing to the faint heart family up-
on whom such reports have a
decidedly demoralizing effect
resolving into nervous prostra-
ti< 11.
At this time of storm and
stress when our pulses are beat-
ing and our hearts throbbing at
evet)' sound that comes from the
seat of war, 1 regard it as crim-
inully eruel to start reports cal-
culated to unnerve us, Or, to un-
duly elevate our hopes. The very
least, and mildest judgment
that can be passed upon him
who is guilty of such things, is
that he is an incorrigible ass.
One need only read the Con
tribution List of the Bahamas
Relief fund to be convinced
that, the sympathy and anxiety
which is expressed in every pen-
ny of it, is of too sacred a
character to permit the feeling
of the participants to be played
with by every ass that brays.
I tell you what I would dearly
like to seeThe erection of pub-
lie slocks on the Park, at an
elevation of six feet, and the
originators of these false reports,
placed in them for twelve hours
from 6 a.m., to 6 p.m., anil the
linger of scorn and ridicule
pointed at them by the popu-
lace. This I feel would be a
terrible, but none too terrible a
punishment to those tafio are of
a class that should know better
than to promulgate lies.
