To say that the new house erected by Mr Walton Young on the ashes of the old, is, the architectural feature of that portion of Shirley Street from Culmer to Saint Matlh ews Church may sound like satire; but to "say that it will be the architectural feature of that locality for the next decade at hast, is praise that we readily give. Attractive from the point of view of the passerby, tinnew house demands mote admiration when carefully inspected. The fust advantage that impresses the critic is the convenience and economy in arrangement There is nothing disorderly or incon* venn nt, yet there is no waste of space. Very noticeable is the par lour, running the whole' 1 i oe length of the house, it is made light and airy by suites of Windows; in fact, one can say truthfully that the exposure # of the parlour is of glass so many are the openings for the admission of light and when these windows are raised the room is so well ventilated that it must always be cool.

Sir Edward Grey repli< s: "With regard lo that portion of ihe petition which asks that special? precuations be taken to prevent dangei to the lives of the Golconda passengers by sub marina attacks I feel bound to express my astonishment that the Aus-tro I lungarian go' em ment themselves one of the au tliors of the dangei should have thought it seemly lo have 1 n dorse the request "f those certain Austro Hungarian subjects. Nol content however withdoingthis the AustrO'Hungarinn govern ment further states that thej will hold his Majestys govern ment responsible for the lives and well being of these passen gers, a majority of whom are better class people. I am at a loss to know why better class people should be thought moo entitled to protection from sub marine attack than other 11011 batants but however that may be the only danger which threat ens any passenger on the Golcori d 1 is one for which the Austro Hungarian and German govern ments alone are responsible. Hv asking for special precaution to protect one of their subjects on board a British merchant vessel the Austro Hungarian govern ment recognizes what is the inevitable consequences of their submarine policy and admits the outrages whereby the Lusi tania, the Persia and numbers of other ships have been sunk without warning were not the result of casual brutality of the ers of the enemy submarines but part of a settled premedita ted policy of the governments they serve. It is needless to add that His Majestys government do not propose to take any precaution on behalf of Austro Hungarian subjects which they do not take on behalf of their own. The proper and sufficient pro tection from the danger is that Austro Hungarian and Germans should observe the ordinary rules of humanity in their methods of warfare. 1 Jth Jauary, 1016.

Bahamas Government
Iterance of its economic
tshas to enter into
contracts and we are
ivare of any instance
it lias failed to perform
t of any contract that
entered into.
ng its many contracts
re two highly impor-
les, namely that with
Y. and C. M. Steam-
ship Co and that with the
P.I). ."v: Steamship Co, the one
for the carrying of mails and
I ngers between Nassau
and N'ew York U. S. A. and
the other for the carrying of
mails and passengers between
Nassau and Miami U. S A.,
and the way that these con-
tracts have been breached i
simply amazing.
Our present grievance is
with the P. and O. Steam-
ship Co.
This company has contract-
ed with tins government to
run at a specified time a
steamer between this port
and Miami, according to a
schedule, widely published,
beginning the 4th January
and continuing to the 1st
April or thereabout. Trusting
in the good faith contractors the government
by a Development Board and
other means have drawn the
attention of the travelling
public of America to this
route to the Bahamas.
What happens?
At the beginning of the sei
vice for this year, the steamer
is, unfortunately stranded,
by this occurrence four trips
have been lost, mails have
been delayed for ten d.>\ S and
numbers of acl ual and pi i is
pective tourists by that route
have had their plans disar-
rangi d and probably have
decided to give up the inten
tion to come to Nassau ; and
yet there is no effort made by
the Co. to get the mails to
destination, nor any intima
tion of ail intention to put
on another vessel to carry
out their contract, in fact w e
fail to learn that the P. &C
Co. have given any apology
for the existing conditions.
What is a contract made
for?
To secure the performance
of certain acts contracted for.
Exactly.
In view of the above! we
see no alternative tothegov
eminent at once calling on
the P. & (). S S. Co. to carry
out their contract, and toen
force any penalties thai may
be preivided by the contract.
We protest in the strong
est terms against this indif-
ference, amounting to con-
tempt on the part of the P.
and O. S S. Co.

To say that the new house
erected by Mr Walton Young
on the ashes of the old, is, the
architectural feature of that
portion of Shirley Street
from Culmer to Saint Matlh

satire; but to "say that it will
be the architectural feature
of that locality for the next
decade at hast, is praise that
we readily give.
Attractive from the point
of view of the passerby, tin-
new house demands mote ad-
miration when carefully in-
spected. The fust advantage
that impresses the critic is
the convenience and economy

nothing disorderly or incon*

Windows; in fact, one can say
truthfully that the exposure
#of the parlour is of glass so
many are the openings for
the admission of light and
when these windows are rais-
ed the room is so well venti-
lated that it must always be
cool. The advantage of such
an apartment for social func-
tions in our torrid clime is
too obvious to in ed continent.

Though separated from the

effectually one room from the

rhe most remarkable fact

_ London. 10th: Sir Edward
Grey finds opportunity for some
plain speaking regarding the
Ausiro Hungarian and German
submarine warfare in a letter to
Am bass idor Page replying to a
request from the Austro.Hunga-
rian government that special
pains be taken to insure the
safely of certain AuStro llunga
rinn subjects thai are being
repatriated from India on the
Steamer Golconda. Sir Edward
Grey repli< s:
"With regard lo that portion
of ihe petition which asks that
special? precuations be taken to
prevent dangei to the lives of
the Golconda passengers by sub
marina attacks I feel bound to
express my astonishment that
the Aus-tro I lungarian go' em
ment themselves one of the au
tliors of the dangei should have
thought it seemly lo have 1 n
dorse the request "f those certain
Austro Hungarian subjects. Nol
content however withdoingthis
the AustrO'Hungarinn govern
ment further states that thej
will hold his Majestys govern
ment responsible for the lives
and well being of these passen
gers, a majority of whom are
better class people. I am at a
loss to know why better class
people should be thought moo
entitled to protection from sub
marine attack than other 11011
batants but however that may
be the only danger which threat
ens any passenger on the Golcori
d 1 is one for which the Austro
Hungarian and German govern
ments alone are responsible. Hv
asking for special precaution to
protect one of their subjects on
board a British merchant vessel
the Austro Hungarian govern
ment recognizes what is the
inevitable consequences of their
submarine policy and admits
the outrages whereby the Lusi
tania, the Persia and numbers
of other ships have been sunk
without warning were not the
result of casual brutality of the
ers of the enemy submarines
but part of a settled premedita
ted policy of the governments
they serve.
It is needless to add that His
Majestys government do not
propose to take any precaution
on behalf of Austro Hungarian
subjects which they do not
take on behalf of their own.
The proper and sufficient pro
tection from the danger is that
Austro Hungarian and Germans
should observe the ordinary rules
of humanity in their methods
of warfare.
