As the Colonial has a large connection in Jamaica and the other British Wesl India islands, Mr Doble'i mission in the tropics was to look over the situation there with a view to better banking and commercial relations with the West Indies. The Colonial, he said, had been doing; business in Jamaica since 1836. Other branches beside those already in existence will be opened at an early date. Mr. Doble found the military situation in Jamaica satisfactory from a British standpoint, for while one contingent of a thousand men had left, another of equal strength is being re < railed All the men and many of the non commissioned officers colored All are linelooking men and will give a good account of them&elvcs when tliey get to the firing line. Although the trade relations between Jamaica and the United •stales arc close, there is no part of the Empire where the people are more loyal to the British Crown. The United Fruit Company does a large trade, and most of the revenue derived from their exports comes from the United States, hut this in no waj affects the feeling of the people, Recruiting is being carried On about as here, and many of the churches aie now active recruiting agencies. faltering the harbor of King, stoii, Mr. Doble said, his party were at once made to feel (hat the Empire is at war. The cruiser Leviathan and the \u stralian cruiser Sydney were both, lying there. Getting out of the Caribbean Sea and not far from San Salvador, where Christopher Col u m bus li r s t landed, the imposing bulk of the Melbourne was sighted.

An "Id adage liaa vei v apl -

can be claimed by most of
them that, "iheie is no smoke
without fire," and if reports
are COIto t, it comes home to
us with amazing force at the
present time.- and hits us in r
vital spot.
Notwithstanding "the mad
scramble about town" by
late>arrivals from Ihe United
States "to secure for them
selves auv soit of accomoda-
tion whatsoever;** reported
by the Guardian's Social
Notes, the faol remains that
there are numbers of private
houses devoid of lodg, is.
I Ins is a known fact. Re-

housing of visitors goes, the

I leserted Village. I know- of
Houses ui the City, Wast of
liasl Stieet, which haven't a
single lodger and which in
pn Vious years have done a
very good business. It seems
to me that here is w here the
I evi lopiiii nt I'maid mighj
gi t to work and do some
good work in addition to the
big things it is doing, and
the liig Hole's might also
assist, and the steamship of-
as well. It often < cms
ihat a customer on inquiring
for a certain commodity al
a shop is told Ihat. it i annot
be had there, but the oblig-
ing proprietor cheerfully
directs where it can be had.
This is the course thai should

policy is had, and ihe I lev.--
lopnient Hoard should adopt
some means ol getting n
touch with the iii.id scram-
blers. "Many a nun kle maki s
a mil kle," and it i- ti e small
sums gathered in by the pri-
vate lodging and boarding
lions, g which are circulati d
among the butchers, and
fishermen, and green gr< era
and growers and sellers of
nai ive produi e, wail resses
and chamber maid- which so
greatly assist iu the Develop-
ment of trade in sui h a strug-

Don't let the board extend
all its energies to gel visitors

keep them for cww a week.
Ii does not require much ar-
gument to show the large
benefits which would ai i rue
to a policy such a- I have

Jamaica Doing
Her Bit.
Mr. A. R, D hjlk, reprflsenta-
tive of the Colonial 3ank in
Canada, who recently returned
to Montreal from Kingston,
Jamaica, stated in an interview
that the bank would be opined
for business in the nonunion
next year, 8S had been contem-
plated by the head office for
some time past. As the Col-
onial has a large connection in
Jamaica and the other British
Wesl India islands, Mr Doble'i
mission in the tropics was to
look over the situation there
with a view to better banking
and commercial relations with
the West Indies. The Colonial,
he said, had been doing; business
in Jamaica since 1836. Other
branches beside those already
in existence will be opened at
an early date.
Mr. Doble found the military
situation in Jamaica satisfactory
from a British standpoint, for
while one contingent of a
thousand men had left, another
of equal strength is being re
< railed All the men and many
of the non commissioned officers
colored All are linelooking men
and will give a good account of
them&elvcs when tliey get to the
firing line.
Although the trade relations
between Jamaica and the United
stales arc close, there is no part
of the Empire where the people
are more loyal to the British
Crown. The United Fruit
Company does a large trade,
and most of the revenue derived
from their exports comes from
the United States, hut this in no
waj affects the feeling of the
people, Recruiting is being car-
ried On about as here, and many
of the churches aie now active
recruiting agencies.
faltering the harbor of King,
stoii, Mr. Doble said, his party
were at once made to feel (hat
the Empire is at war. The
cruiser Leviathan and the \u
stralian cruiser Sydney were
both, lying there. Getting out
of the Caribbean Sea and not
far from San Salvador, where
Christopher Col u m bus li r s t
landed, the imposing bulk of
the Melbourne was sighted.
As for the general conditions
in Jamaica Mr. Doble said
that the recuperative powers of I

NEARLY ALL KILLED.
"Our cars wen I down to the
first line of trenches, but there
were very lew wounded these.
Toey wen-' nearly all killed
The bouses were falling hue
packs of cards, and our me 11
crawled through the holes and
got the wounded <>ut. We had
big operations and amputations,
so I don't think any sight could
SCars me now. All the wards
were full, and the corridors were
full,too. By dp,m there were
very few panes of glass left in
the hospital, and the 11 lise was
almost indescribable
"At 10 pan we snatched a
little supper and then to w irk
again. At 13 lie fust shell
struck the hospital, half w reck
ing the kitchen and injuring
four of our people. One sifter
got a bad cut on the head and
a man orderly had a hig piece
>f shrapnel in his hand; one of
our best interpreters had five
bad Wounds. It was a miracle
they were not all killed. We
dressed lhem in the theatre and
then sent them to the wards \t

out of the theatre and went to

for notwithstanding the great
blow in August, and the earth
quakes, hurricanes, floods and
prolonged droughts which have
harried the island, its fertility
causes nature to reassert herself
much more rapidly than in any
other country. Ingoing to and
coming from the West Indies,
Mr. Doble passed through New
York and Boston, and he was
struck b\ the pro British and
anti German sentiment in these
large American communities
This sentiment is quite as in
tense in the Eastern States as
in Montreal.
