TLbc tribune THURSDAY. January 7. 1915. -' %  •PUBLISHED AT f> P.M. Public opinion is very slow in taking at their own value those young men o{ a suitable extent be relieving tl ei a umous pressure which while not urgent at this moment is destined to be insistent in the near future. 'I her.are some who are not • ted by the indications lich are obvious to others of experience, to those who not Onlj Pep their i n but I ihem int< ll< gi ntly and |whos. m o Is act in concert. I'll' 1 British Navy is in want I I the Bi can I Id eo forward and Jtake their part of ; i. y done in furF i ol war, but \\-c must not Forget that the n I is not all sini w, it j onderful composite strucI >rmed and fashioned with ifinite skill, each part adjustII and correlated with precision This fact has been argued into ro ninence by ;i lawyer of considerable force and eloquence Who became a distinguished Missionary, by a line of argument which has never been dis puted. And as is the human bodj MI all its pans so is the stupen I i inization whii h know as tl i British Empire, and as we also know is kept together by the brain, and sinew and muscle of each of its units, and it should be a proud thought that as is the unit, thus is the Empire. There are some of us who might very well serve on our War vessels stationed in the West Indies belonging to the North American Squadron. I )f course they could not be ex pected to render ver) efficient service at first, but as they an uyt altogethei "greenhorns" >2he\ would very soon acquire that knowledge which would Form them into A. R's. The |H>inl is this, that they would relieve men whose servici • would lie of far greater value to their King and country than in dawdling around a ship's deck or polishing brats, or scrubbing hammocks, or doing many things of no real Val which almost any one else could do as well. The ships which are employed in West Indian waters arc not very apt to be empl where they would be subject 1 to those naval mishaps such as the Hermes and the Bulwark experienced. We l lieve that the "reliefs" would not have to serve for much more than a year, during which time the training which they would necessarily have would very much improve their morale, they would acquire habits of industrial methods and order which could not fail to be beneficial, in a word they would become men in the true sense of the word, with improved physique devel iped by an admirable system of physical daily drill. mm mi WmmWimm:. 7&tmmmw\W1 #,;#... %  IB i flfll -"T^B *EtfafffMMflr v Weawait with much interest the result of the uwctin^ of the %  ."in volunteers called for This Afternoon and we hope that their numbers will be doubled, for the Navy needs nun to a greater extent than the army. The loss of men occasioned by the destruction of the Formidable must be severely felt, and since it is to 'he Navy that we must look for our safety on this fringe of Empire it is not too much to expect that a weighty Sense of their responsibility will appeal to our people and that they will not turn a dcef ear to the call. We want to see and feel that they mean business, that they meant it when they volunteered and they mean it now, and do not fear to put their fate to the touch. \\ e earnestly b< liei e that Bahamians who are drafted into the British Navy will not be willing to quit it at the expiration of one year's service but will be eager to remain and serve for the usual period. We know of one Bahamian Samuel Davis, who served with i lit and distinction for 20 years reaching the highest possible grade, and retired decorated with Meda The "Half tone' here introduced shows him with another Bahamian, Rear Admiral For syth, who served with equal distinction in .1 Si %  : %  r h which is the only regrettable uent in connection with that service, as we should rather have seen his nnnie adorning ''Our Navy L\ Shouting I iperrary" won't help the cau Take pattei n by "Tommie" and "cut it out." I le has "turned it down," he bored by '" I iperrary," it is "Taboo" in the ranks and he will smg anything else in preference "Tommie" is not sentimental, uid at long intervals he in whistle the "Marseillaise" oui of politeness to his chum of the Kepi ; There is one' thing that "Tommie" believes n "keeping his pecker up* — and let us imitate him.

Italy's Lack ol Ctar. "Gear it is that SI n-.U ,„ n, 0 Way of Italy seising he. crowning opportunity of complete national reunion. If in the final settlement of tins war Italy finds herself in possession of neither Trieste, Pols riumeoor Vallona, it will be due not so much to the lamentable ill-, health and indecision of the Mari quis di San Giuliano, as to the fact', that she is short of boots ar.d guns —terribly short. For that reason it is chiefly that we see no Italian uniforms fighting side bv side .with the French, and that the dream <.f Latin brotherhood, 'hat blood brotherhood (Ins war; might cement beyond all undoing, still remains a dream." A HANDEL TIGOF-WAH I he German Emperor, in a rts The Musical News : London, in an niticle written P' mbly before the war started, that CM many will never consent claim to Handel. Be. tore nil else, he says, Handel was a German musician. This latter Motion gives rise to the question: \V hat is a German musician ? thu article continues. It is a man who, thoijKhborn in Germany, turned his back upon his native land in early manhood, and lived in the and ,,f hi-, adoption (and of which lie became a naturalized citizen) for nearly half century ? Is it a man who derived Ins melodic expression from Italy, the land of long, and not from his native Germain} j s it a man who composed music to Kriglish oratorios and obtained all his success and recog mtion in England? If a German musician be all these, then Han. del was a German without doubt. Apart from the accident of birth, Handel w.,s for the greater part of his life practically an linglishnian, and no doubt he thought and felt like one, just as thousands of German now in the United States think and feel like Americans. All hi? important work was written for England, his early music being of slight importance ; he was undoubtedly influenced by English composers, and it was the Enlish nation that g*ve his remains a rioWe f*'ing place in their national Will, ,||, Westminster Abbey I hn ugh long .. an the English have maintained their appreciation of ||,i ulel's music, and how ••ver glad they may be to see that his fame has increased on ihe Continent, they are not disposed 10 yield him up to the first claimant, be he ever so eminent. Germany may, if it likes, cling to the skirt of Handel's coat, but F.ngland claims his soul as well as his hod v. mtt THE REINDEER is an inhabitant of the Arctic Region, and it is possibly the most usehil of all the animals which dwell in this part of the world. Unlike the Reindeer SUNLIGHT SOAP is to be found in all parts of the civilised world, and its great utility is vouched for by millions of contented housewives who would not be without it.

\\-c must not Forget that the
n I is not all sini w, it
j onderful composite struc-
I >rmed and fashioned with
ifinite skill, each part adjust-
II and correlated with precision
This fact has been argued into
ro ninence by ;i lawyer of con-
siderable force and eloquence
Who became a distinguished
Missionary, by a line of argu-
ment which has never been dis
puted. And as is the human
bodj mi all its pans so is the
stupen I i inization whii h
know as tl i British Empire,
and as we also know is kept
together by the brain, and sinew
and muscle of each of its units,
and it should be a proud
thought that as is the unit, thus
is the Empire.
There are some of us who
might very well serve on our
War vessels stationed in the
West Indies belonging to the
North American Squadron. I )f
course they could not be ex
pected to render ver) efficient
service at first, but as they an
uyt altogethei "greenhorns"
>2he\ would very soon acquire
that knowledge which would
Form them into A. R's. The
|H>inl is this, that they would
relieve men whose servici
would lie of far greater value
to their King and country than
in dawdling around a ship's
deck or polishing brats, or
scrubbing hammocks, or doing
many things of no real Val
which almost any one else
could do as well.
The ships which are employ-
ed in West Indian waters arc
not very apt to be empl
where they would be subject 1
to those naval mishaps such as
the Hermes and the Bulwark ex-
perienced. We l lieve that
the "reliefs" would not have to
serve for much more than a year,
during which time the training
which they would necessarily
have would very much improve
their morale, they would ac-
quire habits of industrial
methods and order which could
not fail to be beneficial, in a
word they would become men
in the true sense of the word,
with improved physique de-
vel iped by an admirable system
of physical daily drill.

Weawait with much interest
the result of the uwctin^ of the
."in volunteers called for This
Afternoon and we hope that
their numbers will be doubled,
for the Navy needs nun to a
greater extent than the army.
The loss of men occasioned by
the destruction of the Formid-
able must be severely felt, and
since it is to 'he Navy that we
must look for our safety on this
fringe of Empire it is not too
much to expect that a weighty
Sense of their responsibility will
appeal to our people and that
they will not turn a dcef ear to
the call. We want to see and
feel that they mean business,
that they meant it when they
volunteered and they mean it
now, and do not fear to put
their fate to the touch.

Bahamians who are drafted in-
to the British Navy will not be
willing to quit it at the expira-

will be eager to remain and

know of one Bahamian -
Samuel Davis, who served with
i lit and distinction for 20
years reaching the highest pos-
sible grade, and retired decorat-
ed with Meda
The "Half tone' here intro-
duced shows him with another
Bahamian, Rear Admiral For

tradicting the allegation that m

Scarborough is fortified and
that at Whitbv the Germans

Answering the taunt that the
Germans saved themselves only
by superior speed, the statement
says that the German cruisers

Way of Italy seising he. crowning
opportunity of complete national
reunion. If in the final settlement
of tins war Italy finds herself in
possession of neither Trieste, Pols

not so much to the lamentable ill-,
health and indecision of the Mar- i
quis di San Giuliano, as to the fact',
that she is short of boots ar.d guns
terribly short. For that reason it
is chiefly that we see no Italian

A HANDEL TIGOF-WAH

rts The Musical News
": London, in an niticle written
P' mbly before the war started,
that Cm many will never consent
claim to Handel. Be.
tore nil else, he says, Handel was
a German musician. This latter
Motion gives rise to the question:
\V hat is a German musician ? thu
article continues. It is a man who,
thoijKhborn in Germany, turned
his back upon his native land in
early manhood, and lived in the
and ,,f hi-, adoption (and of which
lie became a naturalized citizen)
for nearly half century ? Is it a
man who derived Ins melodic ex-
pression from Italy, the land of
long, and not from his native Ger-
main- } js it a man who composed
music to Kriglish oratorios and
obtained all his success and recog
mtion in England? If a German
musician be all these, then Han.
del was a German without doubt.
Apart from the accident of birth,
Handel w.,s for the greater part
of his life practically an linglish-
nian, and no doubt he thought and
felt like one, just as thousands of
German now in the United States
think and feel like Americans. All
hi? important work was written
for England, his early music be-
ing of slight importance ; he was
undoubtedly influenced by English
composers, and it was the Enlish
