It has been said that he who

' annol be said of our House ol
As lembly in their giving the

nnableand appreciable unit of
I British West Indies Regi
ni' nt: as to that the Bahamas
might well have contributed two
distinct units without ruining
the Colony as some seem to fear
one unit would.
Any one who heard the debate
on the Second reading ol the
I' ilution must have been pain-
ed by the attitude of some of the
members of our House which
betrayed selfishness, and dis-
played a lack of patriotism, an
indifference, a tardiness and a
niggardly policy which is by no
means in consonance with the
exigencies of the times, also a
failure to grasp the urgency of
the appeal for "-men and more
men" made by the War Depart
I ment, voiced by the King and
enacted by Parliament ill itg
compulsary service-bill, and still
more deplorable a realization of
our share and obligation in the
defence of the empire and our
0V. n heai tllS and homes.
In some instances this lamen-
table attitude would be different
weir more of the members of the
House r< presented bj sons at the
front instead of "Slackers" at
home; one only of the 11 .us.
being so repn sented
It is unthinkable that repre
' itiye Legislative body ,.f
patriotic citizei s i nsidering
the exi of the times
could or would allow twenty,
three days to cover their detenu
. ining the expenditure ol >
in the defeni e of the I mpire ! .'
'I his be it remembered not as
though it was to determine
whether we should send any
men at all, but simply to in"
crease the number already sent,

lam
Valuable time lias been
l"st, men are wanted now,
and yet in the Bahamas en-
listment lias prai ticall) i
cd, the enthusiasm of the men
has consequently grown cold,
'and it would l>" n" sur|
ii it be 11 iw found difficult to
'enlist sixty fi\c men.
The Second Contingent
embarked here on the 35th
November over I wo months
ago and it do s seem that
it does not need the zeal of a
"fire cater"' to have had the
3rd Contingent ready for em-
barkation n
Much valuable time lias
been lost and it is to be bop
ed thai the Recruiting Com-

the tardiness in other quar-
