To the Editor of "The "Tribune' Sir, We feet I hat we must make known to the public and also to the proper authorities the intolerable unfairness that is practiced towards us by certain public officials who "seem to have control of the public warehouse yard On several occasions, indeed on every occasion, when we as Licensed Draymen have attempted to enter the Government Warehouse yard for the purpose of obtaining a job by loading up our drays with passenger's baggage arriving from foreign potts, we have been prevented from entering by public officials while the employes of the Hotel Colonial are not prevented or restricted in any way. We are licensed Dra\ men and pay the taxes imposed by law, and in being thus restricted from earning our living we are at a manifest disadvantage, and we cannot but feel that we are the victims of indignity and unwarranted outrage We are law abiding citizens and conluct ourselves accordingly, but ?ve cannot be expected to continue passively to submit to such scandalous treatment. Why the wagon; of the Hotel Colonial and their employes should be permitted to enjoy as privileges what we are debarred from as our rights is more than we can understand. If we are not allowed to enter the yard, neither should the Hotel •Colonial wagons and their employes be allowed. \\ e do not ask for partiality, but we ask for fairness, and we urgently protest J

London: —No incidents, so far as are known, have marked the opening of Germany's submarine blockade of the British Isles al though it has been in lorce 24 hours, nor has the British government thus far announced its proposed retaliatory measures. Precautions however are be ing taken on this side of the North Sea although the German government has warned the Gerpcd. What a sorry spectacle we must make in the eyes of the Empire of giving and grumbling. The I lome government, or to be more specific the Colonial office must look upon us with any tiling but admiration, and if the British Government could feel as an individual, and as I feel, your £10,00.1 would be returned, marked "Declined with thanks."

God save our gracious King, I.ong live our noble King, God save the King : Send him victorious, happy and glorious. Long to rtign over us —God save the King. ATROCITIES. I T is easy to sympathize with the feeling back of the protest made by German women against the widespread scory that their husbands and brothers have become cruel and brutal in the lands they have invaded. An American doctor, Percy II. Williams, reinforces their pro test with the assertion that in all his experience on the firing line he can find no evidence of ''atrocities." Let us acquit, and gladly ac quit, the German private of the charge that he has reverted to primitive and barbarous modes of war. Let us make the ac quittal as broad and sweeping as it can be made. Nevertheless there have been atrocities—not the atrocities, perhaps, of the individual soldier, but atro.ities committed by the German Government. The German Government sowed the North Sea with mines and blew up harmless trawlers coming from the Scandinavian countries and Holland. The German Government sent There is an active German propananAa in this country. Its agents are tireless. But there is an agency far more powerful at work In behalf of the cause for which England and Russia are fighting. It is the wireless telegraph station at Sayville, which receives & gives out the official reports and declarations of the German Gov eminent. BERLIN LIMITS BREAD SALES airships over Antwerp, Paris. Warsaw, and many undefended and unfortified towns and villages ill France, Belgium, and Poland, and scattered death and destruction im p a r t i a 11 y on home, shop, and farm. The German Government dispatched warships to the coast of England and killed women and children in Whit by, llartlepool, Scar borough, and Yarmouth, The German Government revived the mediaeval custom of holding hostages and killing them if the population from which they came committed any infraction of the rules of war. The Ger man Government held cities for raiiscm. The German Government has now completed its record of atrocities by declaring a war sane around England and putting the ships of every neutral nation on notice that if they venture into that zone they may be sunk with all on board These are the real atrocities What difference does it make that exuberant liars in the early days of the war may have as cribed to the German private a ferocity that was not his ? Probably he did not cut off the hands of Belgian women ; probably he did not spear French babies on his bayonet. But his superior officers had given him a lesson in ruthless brutality, in reversion to a barbarity to seek a parallel for which we should have to go to the Indian raids on the colonies, and if he omitt ed to follow that suggestion it is vastly to his credit. The atrocities, if by that word we mean individual cruelty, may be dismissed ; but how is the German Government going to make its defense at the bar of the civilized world when it is arraigned on the charge of ordering atrocities on a vaster scale than would ever enter into the mind of a private soldier, however depraved lie might be, to conceive ? 4.2 MUNICIPALITY ALLOWS POUNDS PER WEEK PER INDIVIDUAL. launch a boat.

It says that a German Major who wa> shot in the fighting near Serapeum was lound to be carrying a white flag in a specially designed wallet. I have just seen this amazing part of the dead officer's equipment The flag is about 2J feet square and is made to fit on to a sword or rifle for use. On one side it has a strong small pouch of canvas, into which the end of the sword or rifle fits. Half way down the side is a ring, and at the lower corner is a length of string to keep the flag fast to whatever is used for the flagstaff.

They say. this has been established definitely by the testimony of a large number of officers and men who took part in the fight.

ATROCITIES.
IT is easy to sympathize with
the feeling back of the pro-
test made by German women
against the widespread scory
that their husbands and brothers
have become cruel and brutal
in the lands they have invaded.
An American doctor, Percy II.
Williams, reinforces their pro
test with the assertion that in
all his experience on the firing
line he can find no evidence of
''atrocities."
Let us acquit, and gladly ac
quit, the German private of the
charge that he has reverted to
primitive and barbarous modes
of war. Let us make the ac
quittal as broad and sweeping
as it can be made. Nevertheless
there have been atrocitiesnot
the atrocities, perhaps, of the
individual soldier, but atro.ities
committed by the German Gov-
ernment. The German Govern-
ment sowed the North Sea with
mines and blew up harmless
trawlers coming from the Scan-
dinavian countries and Holland.
The German Government sent
There is an active German
propananAa in this country. Its
agents are tireless. But there is
an agency far more powerful at
work In behalf of the cause for
which England and
Russia are fighting. It is the
wireless telegraph station at
Sayville, which receives & gives
out the official reports and de-
clarations of the German Gov
eminent.

airships over Antwerp, Paris.
Warsaw, and many undefended
and unfortified towns and villa-
ges ill France, Belgium, and Po-
land, and scattered death and
destruction im p a r t i a 11 y on
home, shop, and farm. The
German Government dispatched
warships to the coast of England
and killed women and children
in Whit by, llartlepool, Scar
borough, and Yarmouth, The
German Government revived
the mediaeval custom of hold-
ing hostages and killing them if
the population from which they
came committed any infraction
of the rules of war. The Ger
man Government held cities for
raiiscm. The German Govern-
ment has now completed its re-
cord of atrocities by declaring
a war sane around England and
putting the ships of every
neutral nation on notice that if
they venture into that zone they
may be sunk with all on board !
These are the real atrocities
What difference does it make
that exuberant liars in the early
days of the war may have as
cribed to the German private a
ferocity that was not his ? Pro-
bably he did not cut off the
hands of Belgian women ; pro-
bably he did not spear French
babies on his bayonet. But his
superior officers had given him
a lesson in ruthless brutality, in
reversion to a barbarity to seek
a parallel for which we should
have to go to the Indian raids
on the colonies, and if he omitt
ed to follow that suggestion it
is vastly to his credit. The
atrocities, if by that word we
mean individual cruelty, may be
dismissed ; but how is the Ger-
man Government going to make
its defense at the bar of the ci-
vilized world when it is arraign-
ed on the charge of ordering
atrocities on a vaster scale than
would ever enter into the mind
of a private soldier, however
depraved lie might be, to con-
ceive ?

One of the most extraordinary
finds ever made on a battlefield
is referred to in an official com-

It says that a German Major
who wa> shot in the fighting
near Serapeum was lound to be
carrying a white flag in a speci-
ally designed wallet.
I have just seen this amazing
part of the dead officer's equip-
ment The flag is about 2J feet
square and is made to fit on to
a sword or rifle for use. On one
side it has a strong small pouch
of canvas, into which the end
of the sword or rifle fits. Half
way down the side is a ring, and
at the lower corner is a length
of string to keep the flag fast to
whatever is used for the flagstaff.
A German'' Lieutenant who

With your permission Sir I

and they got under command,
they simply drifted or drove

To the Editor of "The "Tribune'
Sir,
We feet I hat we must make
known to the public and also to
the proper authorities the in-
tolerable unfairness that is
practiced towards us by certain
public officials who "seem to
have control of the public ware-
house yard
On several occasions, indeed
on every occasion, when we as
Licensed Draymen have at-
tempted to enter the Govern-
ment Warehouse yard for the
purpose of obtaining a job by
loading up our drays with pas-
senger's baggage arriving from
foreign potts, we have been pre-
vented from entering by public
officials while the employes of
the Hotel Colonial are not pre-
vented or restricted in any way.
We are licensed Dra\ men and
pay the taxes imposed by law,
and in being thus restricted
from earning our living we are
at a manifest disadvantage, and
we cannot but feel that we are
the victims of indignity and un-
warranted outrage We are
law abiding citizens and con-
luct ourselves accordingly, but
?ve cannot be expected to con-
tinue passively to submit to
such scandalous treatment.
Why the wagon; of the Hotel
Colonial and their employes
should be permitted to enjoy as
privileges what we are debarred
from as our rights is more than
we can understand. If we are
not allowed to enter the yard,
neither should the Hotel Colo-
nial wagons and their employes
be allowed. \\ e do not ask for
partiality, but we ask for fair-
ness, and we urgently protest

London: No incidents, so far
as are known, have marked the
opening of Germany's submarine
blockade of the British Isles al
though it has been in lorce 24
hours, nor has the British govern-
ment thus far announced its
proposed retaliatory measures.
Precautions however are be
ing taken on this side of the
North Sea although the German
government has warned the Ger-
pcd.
What a sorry spectacle we
must make in the eyes of the
Empire of giving and grum-
bling.
The I lome government, or to be
more specific the Colonial office
must look upon us with any
tiling but admiration, and if
the British Government could
feel as an individual, and as I
feel, your 10,00.1 would be re-
turned, marked "Declined with
thanks."
I think that f..r the credit of the
Colony the I'less should con-
sider the incident closed, anil
cease to publish any .criticisms
or objections thereto,

Dear Sirs:
I am (lad to be able to Inform you that
the "truss" (T) I tot from you In September
le a complete surr.se. It has supported my
rupture perfectly since I first wore It. I
have been ruptured since I can remember
and tried at different Intervals several makee
of trues without success. I wsa beginning
to think I should have to undergo an opera-
tion, as the rupture was gTa.lu.iiiy getilnf
worse. Now. however, I consider myself
practically cured. To my mind one of the
great points about your Invention la that
one doea^not feel Its pressure anywhere, si-
xes.
.. Its
preeeure any more tbsn I do my trouser
suspenders. Tou are quite welcome to make
any use you like ot this letter.
Tours truly.
