V Publical % Publication began at 3.13 p.m. Zbe tribune Thursday. November 19, 1914. The shuffling of the cards by I urkey in this European struggle is at one with the game which a sick man usually plays. Over a year ago, it was predicted by those who were looking on, that there was an "ace up the sleeve" in the shape of a Christian Masacre; we think it was in June of last year. We do not think that Turkey will count tor much, but she is annoying. A gnat or a wasp cannot kill you, but it can cause you much inconvenience. The Review of Reviews, an authority by the way, in speak mg of Turkey says : "How long it can continue to tK P ? r u tS burde "* depends on the forbearance of its neighbours and creditors, and the ability of its friends, (who are thev ?) to sw it through its* troubles. Should they fail, and dissensions break out as threatened among the 1 urks themselves, the day of its partition, as in thecase of i^ersia, will not be far off, and the City of Constantinople will attord but a temporary soioin to the S u it an of Turkey and the Calif of Islam." Turkey has been helped by nr friends more than twice, but they will not continue, one gets tired of that sort of thing in the ordinary things of life. As an American lndy once said to us: 1 here are some people whom you cannot help anyhow you fix it. You pity them individually, you pity their poverty, but give them $500 to-day they'll not have any of it left by next week. One had better let them drift until they goto bwttom." Just so is it witli Turkey. "In case of victoryfin the present war) the Russians will certainly demand Constantinople, which means that the Turks will be shoved out of Europe." The Bear has his eye on the Turkey roost; just watch a bit and you'll see some feathers fly. Those of us who are privileged to be on this side "forever" will before not very long, see that Ancient bird "getting a move on to Jerusale/n. :o: - MAILS Mails per Frances E. further extended to 8 a.m. Friday Nov. 20.

All are welcome BRICE AND JACKSONVILLE We are glad to learn that the visit of Mr. L. G. Brice, M H. A" to Jacksonville is very likely to be followed by success. We see by Jacksonville Press Clippings and also from private sources that, Jacksonville has "let itself go" on the scheme to establish a steamship line fyetween that place and Nassau. We should have it. We want it, because we need it. This is one to the credit of the "D. B." and another to L. G. B STELLA PHENOMENA Public School Roker's Point, Exuma 13th Nov, 1914. Mr. Editor, Sir, On Wednesdav morning the 4th inst,at ten o'clock, I was just about to give the order for the pupils to march in school, when suddenly every child's attention was riv.ted upwards. Hie disorder was so great that our teacher came out to find out the cause, when lie run was lost in wonder RMZing Upwards There were two objectresem bling bright stars, high up in the heavens, over the s< a They were some distance opart, and moving slowing in a southwesterly direction. They moved on over the western end of <.nr is land and when they had n,, : .,ed over the land, one of the objects changed its coarse and travell ed more to the southeast. These objects were plainly visible Jor about 7 minutes and were Having all the while until they were lost to sight. Our teacher admitted having seen stars before in the daytime, but said that he had never before sejjn them moving in this ma^ja'. We would like for soin^ of your learned astronomers 60 explain to us whether these bright objects werj really stars or not. Yours truly H.S.THOMPSON, Assistant Teacher. The Ferry, Nov. lath 1^14 To the Editor, The Tribune Dear Sir, In looking over your Tribunes I came across a letter signed by one, Imray Fowler in which he either seems to doubt the veracity of my statements about my seeing the star in the day time or is poking fun at me. I wish tosa\ thai I ,nn not such a silly boob to make a statement like that and send it to a prominent newspaper for publication for thousands to read unless I was sure of my grounds and also that my head is always clear and never full of bug juice. I consider it a rare phenomenon and have substantial witnesses to prove it was seen,^sjL4cially my brother Mr. Cl rm : Kitz %  Gerald who viewed it through a fairly powerful pair of Dollands binoculars before he call ed my attention to it. Any one that has the brains of a buckrabbit ought to know the stars are always shining but it is very rarely that one is given the opportunity of seeing them in the da> time I am not inviting any controversy and shall take no notice of any future letters. Yours respectfully GERALD FITZGERALD.

New York 18th —Weather from New York for Thursday, fair with rising temperature. The fighting in Flanders was more violent today according to official advices but the Germans were repulsed whenever they attacked, from Lys to the North Sea. The Allies front was subjected to bombardment near Bix schoote. The Zouaves charged with the bayonet and took a forest which the Allies have been fighting for three days. South of Ypres the Germans were driven back. The Allies artillery had advantage of the enemv in Craonne region. The bombardment of Rheims continues. There have been violent attacks in the Sainte Marie district of Alsace. The Germans have taken out their Landweht troops for the reason that they have lost one half of their active strength. Fetrograd says that a terrific battle of unexampled violence has been proceeding around Soldau. Cannonading goes on night and day and the Russians are trying to avenge their former check at that place. They threw themselves on theGermans with indescribable fury carrying position after position by assault. The Germans are offering a most obstinate resistance and their fighting is alternately offensive and defensive and defensive. In spite of torrents of rain the Russians are advancing towards the interior of Germany. A numbe r of cannon have been taken, all undamaged. A ferocious battle is said to be taking place at Cracow where the Russians are bombarding the city. Reports from Germany tell of Russian repulses and prophesy that they are stopping the Rus sians. Announcement is made by Austria of further gains in Servia as well as against the Rus sians outside of Cracow. Although Turkeys formal declaration of war against the Triple Fntente mentions only England, France and Russia it has been decided by Japan to withdraw her diplomatic representatives from Turkey.

The shuffling of the cards by
I urkey in this European struggle
is at one with the game which
a sick man usually plays. Over
a year ago, it was predicted by
those who were looking on, that
there was an "ace up the sleeve"
in the shape of a Christian
Masacre; we think it was in
June of last year. We do not
think that Turkey will count
tor much, but she is annoying.
A gnat or a wasp cannot kill
you, but it can cause you much
inconvenience.
The Review of Reviews, an
authority by the way, in speak
mg of Turkey says :
"How long it can continue to
tKP?ru 'tS burde"* depends on
the forbearance of its neighbours
and creditors, and the ability of
its friends, (who are thev ?) to
sw it through its* troubles.
Should they fail, and dissensions
break out as threatened among
the 1 urks themselves, the day
of its partition, as in thecase of
i^ersia, will not be far off, and
the City of Constantinople will
attord but a temporary soioin to
the Suitan of Turkey and the
Calif of Islam."
Turkey has been helped by
nr friends more than twice, but
they will not continue, one gets
tired of that sort of thing in the
ordinary things of life. As an
American lndy once said to us:
1 here are some people whom
you cannot help anyhow you
fix it. You pity them individu-
ally, you pity their poverty, but
give them $500 to-day they'll
not have any of it left by next
week. One had better let them
drift until they goto bwttom."
Just so is it witli Turkey.
"In case of victoryfin the pre-
sent war) the Russians will cer-
tainly demand Constantinople,
which means that the Turks
will be shoved out of Europe."
The Bear has his eye on the
Turkey roost; just watch a bit
and you'll see some feathers fly.
Those of us who are privileged
to be on this side "forever" will
before not very long, see that
Ancient bird "getting a move
on to Jerusale/n.

IN THE SUPREME COURT
Civil Side
The Case of Eady vs. Johnson
was concluded o n Tuesday
evening on, the 17th inst, and
had lasted for fivedays. The de-
fendant obtained a verdict for
the greatest part of his claim viz;
175, being the amount of four
teen instalments on a contract
to pay 150 a year, as also 500
the amount of a counter claim
made by the defendant on the
ground of fraud practised
by the plaintiff, and which the
defendant failed to prove.
The summing up, and charge
to the Jury, reminded us of the
dark ages. We trust that in fu-
ture, the functions of His honor
will be performed under more
light.

13th Nov, 1914.
Mr. Editor,
Sir,
On Wednesdav morning the
4th inst,at ten o'clock, I was
just about to give the order for
the pupils to march in school,
when suddenly every child's at-
tention was riv.ted upwards.
Hie disorder was so great that
our teacher came out to find out
the cause, when lie run was
lost in wonder RMZing Upwards
There were two object- resem
bling bright stars, high up in the
heavens, over the s< a They
were some distance opart, and
moving slowing in a southwes-
terly direction. They moved on
over the western end of <.nr is
land and when they had n,,:.,ed
over the land, one of the objects
changed its coarse and travell
ed more to the southeast. These
objects were plainly visible Jor
about 7 minutes and were Hav-
ing all the while until they
were lost to sight. Our teacher
admitted having seen stars be-
fore in the daytime, but said that
he had never before sejjn them
moving in this ma^ja'. We
would like for soin^ of your
learned astronomers 60 explain
to us whether these bright ob-
jects werj really stars or not.
Yours truly
H.S.THOMPSON,
Assistant Teacher.

To the Editor, The Tribune
Dear Sir,
In looking over your Tribunes
I came across a letter signed by
one, Imray Fowler in which
he either seems to doubt the
veracity of my statements about
my seeing the star in the day
time or is poking fun at me. I
wish tosa\ thai I ,nn not such a
silly boob to make a statement
like that and send it to a promi-
nent newspaper for publication
for thousands to read unless I
was sure of my grounds and also
that my head is always clear
and never full of bug juice. I
consider it a rare phenomenon
and have substantial witnesses
to prove it was seen,^sjL4cially
my brother Mr. Cl rm: Kitz
Gerald who viewed it through
a fairly powerful pair of Dol-
lands binoculars before he call
ed my attention to it. Any one
that has the brains of a buck-
rabbit ought to know the stars
are always shining but it is
very rarely that one is given
the opportunity of seeing them
in the da> time I am not invit-
ing any controversy and shall
take no notice of any future let-
ters.
Yours respectfully
GERALD FITZGERALD.
