Ube tribune I nc-.il.vv January II. 1916. We were in duty bound in our issue of the 4th. inst to j ;ii:imadvert upon the indifference and carelessness of the' mail steamship agents withj ard to expediting our mails We are paying £5000 per annum subsidy to the P. & O. | unship Co. for the trans-' portation of our mails from' Miami to Nassau; their ship ] the "M i a m i" has been ; aground in Biscayne Hay for; a week now with our mails 1 board, although the Motor' 1 ranees E,"a vessi 1 that has; l for long regularly bring-1 ing our mails, left Miami on I' riday. We do not think it required any great amount of inst or that there could be insuperable difficulties in the way of transferring our mails to tin; latter vessel so as f %  facilitate their delivery. I lie question arises, if the "Miami 1 remains aground other week, will our mails n there, or will they be back to New York, or at? Is.it all likely that they v, 11! be sent here as one op1 ; .unity has been allowed to j^s, it is just as likely that another will be allowed to p.'is-y perhaps it was forgotten that they had a mail on boa The attention of the Hoard ol \gririilture is called to a Misfit that lias recently apI %  a red on our citrus fruit trees and which appears to be very Iructive. It is in a form of a black %  leinsect (?) or bark louse (?) which thickly infests the underside of the leaves, giving the trees, at a short dis' nee, the appearance of bcingcovered with soot. I'lease do not wait until them-ages of this pest have utterly destroyed our Grape •' nit, Oranges, Lemons and I iraes, before attention is I'-!ven to the matter. DO IT NOW.

It is true we have done well, but have we done our whole duty? We might say so if tlie war was at an end. but the war is still rag ing at its greatest extent, money is still wanting and ''men and more men"are still wanting (England has to resort 'o conscription) are we tost' 'p here, self satisfied that "we have done our part" ? Alas! no the war may continue for a year or two more and the demand for money and men will continue likewise. We have not yet reached tinstage of sacrifice my countrymen, we have got to do more if weresolve to prosecute this war to a victorious conclusion. I have heard men say that they will be willing to fight in defense of their own homes and land, the only defenceol our homes in this war that we can make is being made on the battle fields of Europe, our men who are on the ii way to the fionl are'di fend ing theirs, and our homes, all honour to them, and any wdio are willing to defend their homes and land must go foi ward. At any rate let us send forward the willing men to de fend our homes, at the only pomt where they can lie de fended, and let the "slack" wait until theVnemyattacks our shores.

Ube tribune
I nc-.il.vv January II. 1916.
We were in duty bound in
our issue of the 4th. inst to j
;ii:imadvert upon the indif-
ference and carelessness of the'
mail steamship agents withj
ard to expediting our mails
We are paying 5000 per
annum subsidy to the P. & O. |
unship Co. for the trans-'
portation of our mails from'
Miami to Nassau; their ship ]
the "M i a m i" has been ;
aground in Biscayne Hay for;
a week now with our mails1
board, although the Motor'
' 1 ranees E,"a vessi 1 that has;
l for long regularly bring-1
ing our mails, left Miami on
I' riday.
We do not think it requir-
ed any great amount of in-
st or that there could be
insuperable difficulties in
the way of transferring our
mails to tin; latter vessel so as
f facilitate their delivery.
I lie question arises, if the
"Miami1 remains aground
other week, will our mails
n there, or will they be
' back to New York, or
at?
Is.it all likely that they
v, 11! be sent here as one op-
1 ;'.unity has been allowed
to j^s, it is just as likely that
another will be allowed to
p.'is-y perhaps it was forgotten
that they had a mail on
boa
The attention of the Hoard
ol \gririilture is called to a
Misfit that lias recently ap-
I a red on our citrus fruit trees
and which appears to be very
Iructive.
It is in a form of a black
leinsect (?) or bark louse
(?) which thickly infests the
underside of the leaves, giv-
ing the trees, at a short dis-
' nee, the appearance of bc-
ingcovered with soot.
I'lease do not wait until
them-ages of this pest have
utterly destroyed our Grape
' nit, Oranges, Lemons and
I iraes, before attention is
I'-!ven to the matter.
DO IT NOW.

In the I louse of Assembly last
night the Select Committee pre
sented an Interim Report recom
mending the enlistment of an.
other contingent bringing our
number up to 200 men and to
make provision for keeping
that foice in the held. I hey
also reported a Resolution ic-
commending a Vote of Indemni
ty of 2000 for the purpose.
Up to the present we have
sent forward 135 men so that 65
more are required to make up
the 200. We presume that 100
aien will be enlisted and put in
training at once to meet our
needs.
Mr. Cole intimated that when
the matter came before the

would move that the Bahamas
Contingent be brought up to the

D 11 Sir,
Your editorial, in
your issue ol Saturday last,
referring to a 3rd Bahamas
Contingent is both timely
and apposite (or the apparent
indiff stew e is simply amaz-
ing-
Having mi la/taken to send
men in response to the app< a I
of the King, we should do so
with a whole hearted will
and energy, can tiny Bahami-
an imagine I hilt we hav<
(I in-' our part with 1 jj men,
any such has ihx conception
of tw riftwfffTsity t>f Ihe con-
jjrflicl in which the E^npire is
involved nor .if the obliga
tiou which rests uoton us in
consideration of the protec-
tion and safely we have so
long enjoyed und< rlhestrong
arm of England, and p 11 tiou
larlv in lliis wart but for
Engl mil's navy to ft'lrch we
have never contributed one
f irthing we might lopay have
known what the honors and
i' alities of war arc, instead
of the case and securit) which
we eojoy equal to that of
linns .if profound peaie.
The nation is still j^ipeal-
ing for "men and uioreiiicii",
we have men, willing] men,
ready to go, kept hackly the
tardy legislation of legifators
who do not represent the
spirit of those thev repitscnt.
We have heard it saiithat
we have done our part.
Docs that idea bclrav I'no-
ranee of the existing cAidi*
tions or a mis n. eptidj of
the value of our few tnou-
sands of pounds and 135 men,
or both ? It is true we have
done well, but have we done
our whole duty? We might
say so if tlie war was at an
end. but the war is still rag
ing at its greatest extent,
money is still wanting and
''men and more men"are still
wanting (England has to re-
sort 'o conscription) are we
tost' 'p here, self satisfied that
"we have done our part" ?
Alas! no the war may con-
tinue for a year or two more
and the demand for money
and men will continue like-
wise.
We have not yet reached
tin- stage of sacrifice my
countrymen, we have got to
do more if weresolve to pro-
secute this war to a victori-
ous conclusion.
I have heard men say that
they will be willing to fight
in defense of their own homes
and land, the only defenceol
our homes in this war that
we can make is being made
on the battle fields of Europe,
our men who are on the ii
way to the fionl are'di fend
ing theirs, and our homes, all
honour to them, and any wdio
are willing to defend their
homes and land must go foi
ward.
At any rate let us send for-
ward the willing men to de
fend our homes, at the only
pomt where they can lie de
fended, and let the "slack"
wait until theVnemyattacks
our shores.
Yours truly
READY AND WILLING.
Long Cay F. I.
December 91I1 1915.
Dear Mr. Editor,
On the morning of the 6th
Mr. J ness of over a month passed
away. Mr Maura was65years
uf age and for many years
was the Agent of the Ham-
burg American and other
Lines of "steamships calling
hei e for Stevedores.
He will be missed by all
for never in the history of
this District has there been a
man more loved-and respect-
ed than our departed friend
His heart was always open
to the needy and his hand
1 vei ready to help those in
distress and we feel sure that
his place can never be filled,
many times has be distressed
himself to help his fellow
men and there are hundreds
in this District who must say
that the best friend they ever
had has gone.
Mi Maura could not be
termed a Church Follower
yet his daily life in some ways
was Christlike, his forgiving
spirit, generosity, honesty and
geniality will .always keep bis
memory green and who will
say that in the "Great Be-
yund" our friend will not
hear those words of the mas
ter "In as much as ye did it
to the least one of these ye
did it unto me."
He is sleeping quietly un-
der the Whispering trees in a
corper of the Church yard.
Wars nor rumours of Wars
will ever affect him more but
in God's own time we will
see him again.
We tender our sincerest
sympathy to Mis. Maura and
t he relatives of the "Old
Agent" as lie was generally
.died.
Sorrowfullv Yours,
A FRIEND.
