It is with pleasure we laorn
that yesterdav the 2nd C n-

full strength, ioo, and thai 1 .
mustered al the firs) drill y<
lerday afli 1 n< 1 hi and 1 was
absent on \en\
We '' msidei t his a ini sl
1 ledilablc show ing 1 onsidei
ing that recruiting was do-
.1 to "give the tit 1 I in

I'he men when inu-

g.....1 lot, and by those 1 om-
, il to judge, t'i msidered
to be 1 n the whole ;i liner
body of men pin dcallj than
the 1st Contingent.
These men have upheld the '
credit and honoui of the
Colony, and the readiness
with which they have come
forward is in< >sl praisew 1111 hy,
i:i*I corisidei ing that only ten
h ive I "en the time ex-
I licit d (the U< s ilutiou hav
in." passed tin I .egislativeon
the 41 h nist ) it is evident
that the patriot ism of the
masses in t Ins c< ilonv is mi
"lep service," and we are
proud of them.
Five we< ks, including a
delay of i 3 days for Legisla
live authority after the em
barkation of the ist Contin
gent of thirty men the 2nd
Contingent of one hundred
nun are enlisted; these are
facts of which the colon) may
be proud and reflects no little
credit on the energy of theI
Recruiting Committee; and
we do not doubt that in an |
other month a ud Contin ;
gent of one hundred could be ,
raised; there must also be ;
taken in consideration the
fact that a large numher of
the men who have volunteei
ed have failed to pass the ri
gid Medical examination con .
dinted bv the Medical board. ,
We are confident that these

To the Editor iribiine"
Sir,
Permit me through the me-
dium of your valued journal
to snv .1 few things on the
Inn ning qui st ii in of the pre-
sent day. We have on this
Island two hotels: Namely
"Hotel Colonial" "Hotel
Ros al Victoria" the doors of
last named has In cm closed for
,it hast 14 years as it was the
idea of that great corporation
the Florida East Coast Hotel
Co." lii.it should they keep
her going fr<>m seasiin to sea-
son would re in id the s a son
of thi'larger, a well koosvn
fact to every cii izejn <>f this
ancient and loyal colony.
The Victoria standing in such
a beautiful central location
with h'sser rates and more an
accommodation house, with
all the conveniences of a
quiet home, had as her guests
some of the best American
families during the seas* n aniT^y
people who stayed with us
from the opening to closing
of her doors, and whose names
A


1 need hard I) menl ii m as tins
would-^ui into columns, but
Some (I^^Bi II" 111'' Holies still
live wnWh and will never
I)-' obliterated, t hen this Co-
lony was materially benefitt-
ed. Carriage drivers, owners
of yachts, fruit sellers, bakers,
dressmakers, tailors, florists
and hist but n< >t least native
help chambermaids, bellboys,
and Others, all this went to
help the people and t he din I
circulation of money eai ned
dming th'>-' seasons made
business much better lhan
it is today. Now Sir
owing to tins dreadful Euro
pean war the officials of this
gigantic coi poratii >n the F.
I. C. II. Co thought it vei \
advisable to awaken the
sleeper. rheVictoi ia Hotel"
knowing that hei su ess is
assured, siie having every
thing in her favour, the tour-
ist seeking a inter home, Ins
steering his course to Florida
and the Bahamas&the Baha-
mas mu h preferred in< rese-
quence of In insistent tern
perature during the whole of
the winter se ison, and so
mu h better .is a health re-
storer a fact that is undeni-
able. Now according to a
paragraph appearing in Sa-
turday's issue of both journals
published in this Island this
beautiful "Hotel Victoria"
will be opened lor business on
December 1.5th 1915 this date
also starts tile harvest foi for-
eign employe, s 1 l< rk , house-
keepers, porters, chamber*
maids, bellboys and others
too numerous to mention the
southern and northern ele-
ment will be on parade in
this city, and have in then
minds the freedom and the
keys thereof. They are made
to understated by these offi-
cials of the F. F..C II. Co. in
charge here that they are su-
perior to the native help, and
I guess more honest a terrible
piece of fabrication which
they ;il me can endorse. Now
Sir, turning to the other CO
lonies th.it have great specu
la live corporations individual
' 'intakes, investors, what do
w 1 f nil.

Mr. Editor I am very sorry
to intrude on your space but
this is a living evil and would
seem as if it has come to stay,
and as .1 member of this an-
cient and loyal colony which
lodavis not' only showing
her loyalty by singing and
talking but is sending her
sons in defem e of this gnat
Empire on which thesun never
sets, and doing all it can in
defence of foreign terrorism
and brutality for the spread
of civilization and a lasting
peace which we hope will

which they enjoy to their
