Mr. Winston Churchill's
Resignation.
THE resignation of Mr
Winston Churchill was
not altogether unexpected, but
the cauM and manner of it came
as a surprise. For some time
past lie has been manifest) out
of sympathy with Ins former
political associates, ami hll "
cent public utterances have not
improved his position in the
popular esteem. It was fIt. in
fact, that in any reconstruction
of the Government he would
probablj be left out. Perhaps
it was the consciousness of this
wr/fcli led him to take the ini
tiative into his own hands and
to resign a position of "sell
paid inactivity."
With much'of Mr. Asquith's
generous tribute to his col
league's genius, courage, and
loyalty there will be general
agreement. The nation will
regret also at such a crisis to
lose the services of a man of
such fertility of ideas and such
resourceful loess and energy in
action. For our own part,
however, we must confess that
* wo cannot agree with the eulo
gy pronounced by the Press
generally on the manner of Mr.
Churchill's resignation The
first impression left on our
minds by his letter to Mr. As
quitll was that it breathed
pique and wounded vanity and
that impression was deepened
by his statement in the House
of Commons. He alleged as
the reason for his resignation
that he had not been given n
seat on the new War Council,
and that he could not "accept
a position of general responsi
billtv for war policy without
any effective share in its guid-
ance and control." On the
same ground the other fifteen
members of the Cabinet Who
are not on the War Council
might with equal reason resign
their portfolios. Several of
them, indeed, hold far more im i
portant offices than the w II '
paid sinecure of the Chancellor-
ship ol the Duchy of Lam astir.
But the worst feature of both |
the letter and the statement is
their tx.partt character. Mr. |
Churchill, with a lamentable 1
lack of delicacy, claimed all
the credit for the really brilliant
ideas winch led to the attempts
to relieve Antwerp and force
the Dardanelles, while he threw
the blame for failure on others,
and, worst of all, on men who
are unable to defend themselves.
i He hinted at this not obscurely
in his letter when he said,
"Even when decisions of prin-
ciple are rightly taken, the
speed and method of their exe
rution are factors which deter
mine the result." This was
virtually the text <>f his speech,
the object of winch was to show
that I-onl Kitchener was really
iesponsible for the failure at
Vntwerp and the Dardanelles
because he refused to send ex-
I editionar) forces at the time
and in the manner desired by
mmself. The last word has
still to be saiil on these and
other matteis raised by Mr.
CSjurclull, aud in til we hen I
the othei side we cannot with-
nit great rcseive accept hisver-
sic n.
Apart fiom these blemishes
the spirit of optimism and un
faltering resolution which
breathed through Mr. Church-
ill s speech was admirable. li
contained also hints of that in-
sight and breadth of conception
which are the hall-mark of ge-
nius and which we can ill af-
ford to lose at a time like this.
We are convinced, for example,
that Mr. Churchill gauges the
military situation rightly when
he urges that the true policy of
the Allies is to act on the defen-
sive in the West for the present
and to force our wny to Con
Stantisople at once and at all
costs. In hints like this we see
the real Winston Churchill
the man of clear view, of incis
ive intellect, and of resolute
action, and we are reminded of
the almost immeasurable debt
we owe him for the readiness of
our Navy when war wasdeclar
ed. He has made mistakes, of
course, but when the war is
over and victory finally declares
itself on our side, wo believe
that history will recognise that
it was in no small measure due
to the fact that Mr. Winston

Among our early visitors

who are here for a change
from the rigours of a North-
ern winter, and incidently to
make the charms of Nassau
better known to their friends
"up North," They have the
blessing of the Development
Heard, and we understand
that Mr. Howard will devote
some of his time to making
pictures of local beauty spots,
and supplj ihg articles about
the Bahamas to the New

Sail For The Bahamas
Artists Will WorK and Play
Around Nassau.
While New Yorkers are
shivering tlii winter and turn
ing up the collars of their heav-
iest overcoats against the frost)
breaths from the sea, Oscar
Frederick Howard, illustratoi
and his wife, l.ila Wheelock
Howard, sculptor, will he ex
ploring romantic isles in the
West Indies for fun and gather
ing artistic material, for a In ing
in the future.
Mr. Howard and his wife, who
I have both made names for them-
selves, have planned a winter
vacation ofadventuring. Thev
are now aboard the Ward line
steamship \Iorro Castle hound
for Nassau, Bahama Islands
Also aboard the ship is a 19.
foot open power boat which
they used during their summer
vacation at Cos Cob,Conn. It's'
just a "converted eat" Oscsays,
but he trusts it like Columbus
did his caravel.
In tliis diminutive vehicle of
daring they will set forth into
a land of enchantment. Using
Nassau as their base of supplies,
they will wanderarouud fishing,
I oh ting and inviting their souls 1
If some picturesque little island
beckons them they will stop, ex !
plore it and camp for the night i
That's the programme, says Osc,
and adds "Now we'll see."
Mrs. Howard has taken along
a supply of plaster and clay and
will "do" whatevei is interest ing
in the native life around her.
She also expects to cut decora
live reliefs in plaster of tropical
"hey
vvi 1 "lazy along" and do not
axpeol to be within sight of the
Goddess of Liberty before next
spring. Fhen they hope to sur
prise the lady with lots of beauti
ful things they've made.

Dear Sir,
Please allow me a space in
one of your valuable papers
where I may mention some-
thing about a piece that
against them, with which
they have been struggling, the
British t roops ha ve little pros
pect of continuing t heir
march to Bagdad, which a
few days ago appeared to be
almost within their grasp.
Having advanced during

through the Desert of Irak to
the very environs of Bagdad,
the British force is now re

When it comes to this it ought
