Zhe Vtibune TUESDAY. Je.nu*ry 5. 1915. *~ PUBLISHED AT 5 P.M. How long will the War last ? was the question asked when k became known that the probability of War. so long talked of had become a fact, and it is in every man's mouth to-day. and it is safe to say that it can be no moic easily answered now, than then. The question is as rife in Nassau as it it any where. No day passes after the' receipt of the telegraphic War News without exciting a greater degree of interest, even those who are disqualified bv the age limit are wrought up with a military etprtt and can hardly be restrained from laying down the shovel and the hoe and taking up the rifle and the sabre. Flashed all their sabres bare, while the world wondered" That.is the spirit which the War has evoked. 200 stalwart men of the Bahamas have volunteered for the British Navy and now it seoms as if they weft destined to take the places of those brave hearts that sleep beneath the wave for • England Home and Duty.*' But how long will the war last? Will these sons of Britain check the tide of battle, and perpetuate the legend fondly cherished from the davs of our boyhood—"Britannia rules the waves."? Hear an official of a neutral nation today saying; "The War will end in" a draw.'"' Another who says "(he army airmen have seen behind the German lines the scars on the land which tell of preparations for retirement"—Winter trench ing. The Times military critic in replying to the Frankjruter Zci tung that "Great Britain was unable to raise more than 600, • 000 troops" says : — "We have at the present moment exactly double that number, 1,200,000 men, and the number grows almost faster than we cope with it. This is only the beginning. It is our way to begin to raise our armies after war breaks out, and to go on raising them until our ultimate isreaclicd. With 1,300,000 men at home, the army in the field, and thousands of thousands forming in India, Ca.iada, Australia and elsewhere, arc merely the nucleus upon which our armies will eventually be built. It is only a question of time. It stands to reason that an Empire of 400,000,000 can never lack men. This war for us has hardly begun. We have sent merely an advance guard into France. In the Spring the remainder of the advance guard will follow, and somewhere to wards the end of 1915, the main body will begin to come within view. We are sorry for the Allies that we are even slower than Russia in making our weight felt, but a year hence; when the Allies need a rest we shall be in a position to make good war. Nothing can arrest the steady ascending figures of our army. Their cost is of little account, since Germany will ultimately have to pay in territory as well as money. Imagine things at their worst. Imagine the last Cossack on the Urals, and the last French doorkeeper evicted from BordeauxThen we would begin a maritime war against Germany, and still be no worse oil than w hen we began war against Napole< 'ii." Assumption that the German people must pay the tremendous damages being done by the war is based on strong belief, which in turn is founded on the onlv common sense reasoning that applies to the situation in Europe with reference to its final outcome, that Germany is proceeding without a solitary chance of victory. Candid analysis can bring no other conclusion. In preparedness and initiative Germany is very strong. In reserve power she is very weakFrom a military Standpoint her stroke at Paris was an admir able effort. But it failed Her stroke at London was lik< u ise brilliant. But it failed. Being limited in her resources of all kinds, she must win victory quickly il she is to win at all. The reverses before Paris must have been very disheartening to Kaiser Wilhelm Hand his war party. As Germany's position grows weaker with regard to the strength of her troops England's position grows stronger. Likewise the Russian military position, which has been hampered by inadequate transportation, grows move satisfactory Germany's position may be likened to that of a bully lighter of great strength who enters the ring against a man of generalship and staying qualities. Her rushing tactics must win during the first few rounds, or she is beaten. And until she is beaten, just so long will the war last. "War" said Mirabeaua century and a half ago "is Prussia's national industry,'and it has been glorified into a national religion and a national god. England lias danced to her piping. Chins shaved by German barbers. Bread made by German bakers, and pianos made by Germans. And probably "honourable men" among them, but Germany's world-wide system of espionage has taught us that we dare not trust any German. Remember that flood is thicker than an oath. Ask Liege, Louvr.in, Antwerp Mauberge, what came to them of trusting Germans ; stock brokers engineers, piano dealers taking command of invading troops and leading them for murder and loot. Oh my England when will you ll am ? It may be that the war will be long drawn out, or, that it will end much more quickly than can now be forseeu. But one thing is certain, that it cannot continue for Icng at the present terrific pace. Fiuances will not permit. Germany cannot frequently call upon the nation for a billion dollars as she did recently and be accommodated. This war loan was practically raised by conscription, rhere was, of course, tome subscription, but the allotment of the bonds to the banks, was practically a demand for gold. — :o: — S.

The weather has been the worst Kurope has known in several years. The German* have captured one important Russian position but have made no other headway. The Turks have crossed the Russian frontier into the Caucasus. The Russians have gained another entry into I lungary. Greece and Roumania, it is believed, are preparing to enter the war. The Trench have gained and lost sonic positions. Washington: —England will pi\ for naval stores seized before absolute contraband became effective.

The most important development in todays war news Was the capture of Sticnbach and the surrounding height in Up per Alsace which the official statement admits, but claims some of the position! on the heights near the village were re taken by the German after violent fighting. The struggle is still in progress. The Paris war office declares that the French are advancing slowly but steadily in Alsace. Torrential rains have Stopped many operations between the North Sea and the Aisnes, but heavy artillery actions were kept up. Several German positions were taken mar Perthes between Argonne and the Meuse. Berlin war office reports (juiet on the Western front ex. cept for artillery actions; and I a '* %  mentions French gains around Stienbach. It slates that fight* ing continues on Rawka River, but that the situation in Poland is unchanged.

They captured Bolt mow and attempted an advance towards Warsaw. The Russian statement says reported spreadsi where provision! are nearly exhausted. Russians say that the AusIrians have been routed in Galicia and that entire regiments are laying down their arms rather than suffer annihilation, there is nothing new from Cracowregion where reports last night told of a large German force rushing Southward to aid the hard pressed Austrians.

kle. The bursting of those shells was the most terrible thing on ones nerves you can imagine. I don't for one moment pretend that was heroic and didn't care. One did. They (the shells} acted so on one's nerves, but I don't mind telling my family I am rather pleased with myself, for although was terrified and unnerved I %  tuck to it and drove backwards and forwards through' that town amongst all those shells till the last moment. Piccadilly 'Buimen "I Was in the last car to leave the town, when everyone else had gone. Someone remembered two motorbuses that had been left at the other end of the town, and my captain, I, and two Piccadilly 'busmen had a joy lide mice more through the city and got them. It was then dark, except for the glow 01 the burning houses. All the stieets had holes in them 2ft. deep from the shells. The tramway wires were all hanging down, but we got those 'buses and got I safe. I never went to bid for three days, and bad nothing toe.it all thai time. Then I collapsed and fell out of -ny car dead done. I have h -,t every bit of my liit and clothing except what I've got on, There \ is no way out of that town except over one narrow pontoon bridge." The writer adds that they were pursued by the Germans and a bomb dropped close to them, 1 le concludes: "Cheer up, be happy, i because I'm happy myself,so happy and thankful that I "feel I could cry with joy. I'm proud of what I've been through, and I would not have missed it for ^"40,000,000 ••War in its Nuked Reality" Mr. II. B. Lees Smith, one of the members I Parliament lor Northampton, who has gone to France on important work for the Government, tells the other story: "The awlulness of the wounds winch can be inflicted by modern explosives was brought home to me by a young boy with a fresh, innocent face, u In mi we brought home, and whom I have just seen for what is, I am sure, the last time. His right leg was shattered, and has since been amputated at the hip ; theie was a fearful wound on his right shoulder ; be had a compound fracture of his left kr.ee ; his body was rotting with gangrine. As he looked at me with his patient, wondering eyes, soon to be closed for the last time, I realised what war is in its naked reality."

How long will the War last ?
was the question asked when k
became known that the proba-
bility of War. so long talked of
had become a fact, and it is in
every man's mouth to-day. and
it is safe to say that it can be
no moic easily answered now,
than then. The question is as
rife in Nassau as it it any where.
No day passes after the' receipt
of the telegraphic War News
without exciting a greater de-
gree of interest, even those who

Flashed all their sabres bare,

That.is the spirit which the
War has evoked. 200 stalwart
men of the Bahamas have volun-
teered for the British Navy and
now it seoms as if they weft
destined to take the places of
those brave hearts that sleep
beneath the wave for England
Home and Duty.*'
But how long will the war
last? Will these sons of Britain
check the tide of battle, and
perpetuate the legend fondly
cherished from the davs of our
boyhood"Britannia rules the
waves."? Hear an official of a
neutral nation today saying;
"The War will end in" a draw.'"'
Another who says "(he army
airmen have seen behind the
German lines the scars on the
land which tell of preparations
for retirement"Winter trench
ing.
The Times military critic in
replying to the Frankjruter Zci
tung that "Great Britain was
unable to raise more than 600,
000 troops" says :
"We have at the present mo-
ment exactly double that num-
ber, 1,200,000 men, and the
number grows almost faster
than we cope with it. This is
only the beginning. It is our
way to begin to raise our armies
after war breaks out, and to go
on raising them until our ulti-
mate isreaclicd. With 1,300,000
men at home, the army in the
field, and thousands of thous-
ands forming in India, Ca.iada,
Australia and elsewhere, arc
merely the nucleus upon which
our armies will eventually be
built. It is only a question of
time. It stands to reason that
an Empire of 400,000,000 can
never lack men. This war for
us has hardly begun. We have
sent merely an advance guard
into France. In the Spring the
remainder of the advance guard
will follow, and somewhere to
wards the end of 1915, the main
body will begin to come within
view. We are sorry for the
Allies that we are even slower
than Russia in making our
weight felt, but a year hence;
when the Allies need a rest we
shall be in a position to make
good war. Nothing can arrest
the steady ascending figures of
our army. Their cost is of lit-
tle account, since Germany will
ultimately have to pay in terri-
tory as well as money. Ima-
gine things at their worst. Ima-
gine the last Cossack on the
Urals, and the last French door-
keeper evicted from Bordeaux-
Then we would begin a mari-
time war against Germany, and
still be no worse oil than w hen
we began war against Napo-
le< 'ii."
Assumption that the German
people must pay the tremendous
damages being done by the war
is based on strong belief, which
in turn is founded on the onlv
common sense reasoning that
applies to the situation in Eu-
rope with reference to its final
outcome, that Germany is pro-
ceeding without a solitary
chance of victory. Candid an-
alysis can bring no other con-
clusion.
In preparedness and initiative
Germany is very strong. In re-
serve power she is very weak-
From a military Standpoint her
stroke at Paris was an admir
able effort. But it failed Her
stroke at London was lik< u ise
brilliant. But it failed. Being
limited in her resources of all
kinds, she must win victory
quickly il she is to win at all.
The reverses before Paris must
have been very disheartening to
Kaiser Wilhelm Hand his war
party. As Germany's position
grows weaker with regard to
the strength of her troops En-
gland's position grows stronger.
Likewise the Russian military
position, which has been ham-
pered by inadequate transpor-
tation, grows move satisfactory
Germany's position may be
likened to that of a bully lighter
of great strength who enters the
ring against a man of general-
ship and staying qualities. Her
rushing tactics must win during
the first few rounds, or she is
beaten. And until she is beaten,
just so long will the war last.
"War" said Mirabeaua century
and a half ago "is Prussia's na-
tional industry,'and it has been
glorified into a national religi-
on and a national god. Eng-
land lias danced to her piping.
Chins shaved by German bar-
bers. Bread made by German
bakers, and pianos made by
Germans. And probably "hon-
ourable men" among them, but
Germany's world-wide system
of espionage has taught us that
we dare not trust any German.
Remember that flood is thicker
than an oath. Ask Liege, Lou-
vr.in, Antwerp Mauberge, what
came to them of trusting Ger-
mans ; stock brokers engineers,
piano dealers taking command
of invading troops and leading
them for murder and loot. Oh
my England when will you
ll am ?
It may be that the war will
be long drawn out, or, that it
will end much more quickly
than can now be forseeu.
But one thing is certain, that
it cannot continue for Icng at
the present terrific pace. Fiuan-
ces will not permit. Germany
cannot frequently call upon the
nation for a billion dollars as
she did recently and be accom-
modated. This war loan was
practically raised by conscrip-
tion, rhere was, of course, tome
subscription, but the allotment
of the bonds to the banks, was
practically a demand for gold.

kle. The bursting of those shells
was the most terrible thing on
ones nerves you can imagine. I
don't for one moment pretend that
' was heroic and didn't care. One
did. They (the shells} acted so
on one's nerves, but I don't mind
telling my family I am rather
pleased with myself, for although
was terrified and unnerved I
tuck to it and drove backwards
and forwards through' that town
amongst all those shells till the
last moment.
Piccadilly 'Buimen
"I Was in the last car to leave
the town, when everyone else had
gone. Someone remembered two
motorbuses that had been left at
the other end of the town, and my
captain, I, and two Piccadilly
'busmen had a joy lide mice more
through the city and got them. It
was then dark, except for the glow
01 the burning houses. All the
stieets had holes in them 2ft. deep
from the shells. The tramway
wires were all hanging down, but
we got those 'buses and got I
safe. I never went to bid for
three days, and bad nothing toe.it
all thai time. Then I collapsed
and fell out of -ny car dead done.
I have h -,t every bit of my liit and
clothing except what I've got on,
There \ is no way out of that
town except over one narrow pon-
toon bridge."
The writer adds that they were
pursued by the Germans and a
bomb dropped close to them, 1 le
concludes: "Cheer up, be happy,
i because I'm happy myself,so happy
and thankful that I "feel I could
cry with joy. I'm proud of what

War in its Nuked Reality"
Mr. II. B. Lees Smith, one of
the members I Parliament lor
Northampton, who has gone to
France on important work for the
Government, tells the other story:
"The awlulness of the wounds
winch can be inflicted by modern
explosives was brought home to
me by a young boy with a fresh,
innocent face, u In mi we brought
home, and whom I have just seen
for what is, I am sure, the last
time. His right leg was shattered,
and has since been amputated at
the hip ; theie was a fearful
wound on his right shoulder ; be
had a compound fracture of his
left kr.ee ; his body was rotting
with gangrine. As he looked at
me with his patient, wondering
eyes, soon to be closed for the last
time, I realised what war is in its
naked reality."
