Long before the advertised time for commencing, the building was packed to overflowing, and large numbersfailed tosecure admission. Upwards of a thousand people managed to squeeze in, and there was a large and appreciative audience in addition, congregated Ion the steps and porch of the Church. The Choral and Instrumental items were exqusitely rendered, and the congregational singing, led by the combined Zion and Wesley Choirs, augmented by both organ and instrumjental accompaniment, was grand and impressive. So excellent was the whole perfor mance, that only the most exacting musical critic would have been able to find any 'flaw. Weareinclined to think however, that in a few instances there was a tendency to exaggerate slightly the expression marks, pauses, and other 1 i tie adjuncts to effect. This was particularly noticeable in the Choral rendering of "Hallelujah what a Saviour," in our opinion i it would have been a great! improvement if the last sylI lable of "Hallelujah" had not hern chopped of so short, and the long silent pAuse immediately following had been omitted. However, the faults were so slight that it would take'a microscopic criticism to reveal them. The Rev. C. A. Dann, with the aid of the Rev. H. F. Dann, conducted the service, and preached a brief impressive sermon. Mr. Walter Weir presided at the organ, and Mr. Roxborough, Choirmaster of Wesley.conducted; Mr. Simpson Romer having trained the Zion Chior. We regret that space does not permit a more detailed report of the proceedings. Su ffice it to say that t h e whole performance was excellent, and reflects great credit on the organisers.

The Editor The Tribune, Dear Sir, As every one is writing letters about one thing or ano ther, I thought you might let me write one too. I belong to a squad and it discusses things which are occurring in the world. We are not alwavs either idling nt playing. We talk about the war and what we would do, and I expect there is as much sense in it as there is in what grownups talk about it. For instance the United States of America have been talking a long time about tie way that Germans are killing Americans and they are bluffing Germans, but they can't play at that game because they don't hold the cards vhi h a're the Army and Navy. The iqutd thinks that in time to come when the history of the present time comes to be written, the United States will look like one of our prickly fish that swell up, and ain't worth a cent Some' one comes along and gives it a kick and it shrinks up in a min ute It is laughable to hear some Americans talk. Thev think that when thev had the war with Spain that' thev did the world and all. I heard one ss;—"If we had gone to war with Germany it would have been over in three months." I think it would have been so for I am sure that thty would not have had one vessel left to call their own. Instead of sneering at England, they ought to thank God every minuSjr in the day that there is such a country as England to keep the road clear for then ships to Jo and come over the sea, because they couldn't do it, and the sensible men among them know it. The squad can see what a great and splendid wink England is doing for the world, and espe cially for her child that has grown up with a swelled head. Anyway, we, the squad feel proud that we can claim to be English, and we would love to help England and her Allies, but much water must flow un der the bridge between us and the requisite age when we might sled our heart's blood for England. Home and Duty. Now Mr Editor, please don't refuse to publish tins letter, be cause if you do refuse, you will smait for it, for we shall not read your paper any more —and you know that twelve deter mined boys can do either a great deal of harm, or a great deal of good.

Jamaica will help to fight the

Governor decided that over ten
thousand men shall within the

Germans or Turks or whotver

purposes, but now the private

tions of Jamaica have resolved
to assist the Mitt her Country
with the Silver Bullet also, and
some are already doing this.
Private individuals in the col

branch, lias invested in the Bri

is spreading. And it may as.
sume more considerable pro
portions than is estimated in
the liberable estimate of fl,-
000,000 given above.
VARIOUS COMPANIES WILL
SUBSCRIBE TO LOAN.
The Gleaner announced yes-
terday that the Victoria Mutual
Building Society had at a re
cent meeting decided to invest
2,000 of the Society's profits
in British wai loans. We are
in a position to nan ounce this
morning that the Jamaica Co
operative Fire Insurance Com-
pany has determined to invest
between 5,000 and ",000 in
British war loans. VVe have
also learnt that the question of
subscribing to the British loan

MORE MONEY COMINO IN
THAN GOING OUT.
We have spoken of individu
a Is as distinct from companies.
I here are several men in Jama-
ica with large agricultural and
other interests. Since the out-
break of war, and especially
during the last twelve months,
many of these have been blessed
by a swift and sudden access of
prosperity. The prices for log-
wood, sugar, rum and cocoa
have soared. On the other
hand, the difficulties experienc
ed in obtaining goods from Eng-
land, and even from the United
States, have brought about a
certain deciease in the general
consumption Therefore, more
money is HOW coming into Jama
ica than is going out of it. It is
felt by men who arc making
some ol this money that not
only should a part of their war
profits go towards paying the
expenses of our Contingent, but
that some poition of it should
be placed at the disposal of the
British Government for the car
rying on of this war.
SIR JOHN PRINOLE IS ALSO
INVESTING.
We will call the name of one
man out of many who are in
vesting in the British war loans.
Sir John Pringle. He is known
to have strongly approved of the
War Profits tax imposed the

heavily upon him asa very large

Me also approved of the propos

which the Legislative Council

helping to forge the Silver Bui

JRABLE EASTER SERVICE
Musical Service which
lield in Zion Baptist
rh on Sunday night was
Inglv successful both as
to attendance and excel-
lence of rendering. Long be-
fore the advertised time for
commencing, the building was
packed to overflowing, and
large numbersfailed tosecure
admission. Upwards of a
thousand people managed to
squeeze in, and there was a
large and appreciative audi-
ence in addition, congregated
Ion the steps and porch of the
Church. The Choral and In-
strumental items were ex-
qusitely rendered, and the
congregational singing, led
by the combined Zion and
Wesley Choirs, augmented
by both organ and instrum-
jental accompaniment, was
grand and impressive. So ex-
cellent was the whole perfor
mance, that only the most ex-
acting musical critic would
have been able to find any
'flaw. Weareinclined to think
however, that in a few in-
stances there was a tenden-
cy to exaggerate slightly the
expression marks, pauses,
and other 1 i tie adjuncts to
effect. This was particularly
noticeable in the Choral ren-
dering of "Hallelujah what
, a Saviour," in our opinion
i it would have been a great!
improvement if the last syl- I
lable of "Hallelujah" had not
hern chopped of so short, and
the long silent pAuse imme-
diately following had been
omitted. However, the faults
were so slight that it would
take'a microscopic criticism
to reveal them.
The Rev. C. A. Dann, with
the aid of the Rev. H. F.
Dann, conducted the service,
and preached a brief impres-
sive sermon. Mr. Walter Weir
presided at the organ, and
Mr. Roxborough, Choirmas-
ter of Wesley.conducted; Mr.
Simpson Romer having train-
ed the Zion Chior.
We regret that space does
not permit a more detailed
report of the proceedings.
Su ffice it to say that t h e
whole performance was ex-
cellent, and reflects great
credit on the organisers.

Dear Sir,
As every one is writing let-
ters about one thing or ano
ther, I thought you might let
me write one too. I belong to
a squad and it discusses things
which are occurring in the
world. We are not alwavs ei-
ther idling nt playing. We
talk about the war and what
we would do, and I expect there
is as much sense in it as there
is in what grownups talk about
it. For instance the United
States of America have been
talking a long time about tie
way that Germans are killing
Americans and they are bluffing
Germans, but they can't play
at that game because they don't
hold the cards vhi h a're the
Army and Navy. The iqutd
thinks that in time to come
when the history of the present
time comes to be written, the
United States will look like one
of our prickly fish that swell up,
and ain't worth a cent Some'
one comes along and gives it a
kick and it shrinks up in a min
ute It is laughable to hear
some Americans talk. Thev
think that when thev had the
war with Spain that' thev did
the world and all. I heard one
ss;"If we had gone to war
with Germany it would have
been over in three months." I
think it would have been so
for I am sure that thty would
not have had one vessel left to
call their own. Instead of
sneering at England, they ought
to thank God every minuSjr in
the day that there is such a
country as England to keep the
road clear for then ships to Jo
and come over the sea, because
they couldn't do it, and the sen-
sible men among them know it.
The squad can see what a great
and splendid wink England is
doing for the world, and espe
cially for her child that has
grown up with a swelled head.
Anyway, we, the squad feel
proud that we can claim to be
English, and we would love to
help England and her Allies,
but much water must flow un
der the bridge between us and
the requisite age when we
might sled our heart's blood
for England. Home and Duty.
Now Mr Editor, please don't
refuse to publish tins letter, be
cause if you do refuse, you will
smait for it, for we shall not
read your paper any more and
you know that twelve deter
mined boys can do either a
great deal of harm, or a great
deal of good.
I am, Yours truly
THE RAT.

The Editor of The Tribune
Dear Sir,
Is it true that the members
of the Development Board
have resigned ?
Is it also true that 'heir
resignation is the result of a
certain question ashed b) Mr.
Chas. E. Alburyin theH-mse
of Assembly on 17th inst ?
Is there any reason for one
10 suppose that that question
trod heavily on the corns
o* the Board ?
Is it true that the Board
has kept no regular accounts
that the Chairman is the
only person who really
knows how all the money is
spent ?
If these things are true,
what a sad and vexing state
of affairs. What makes mat
teis doubly worse, win n Mr.
Albury asked|lhose questions
in the House, the answer
which the government gave
was the most evasive possi
ble. 1 hope that the govern
*
___


ment understands that again
tin people are not fooled
Mr. Albury asked a plain
question "Up to what date
^nad a complete audit been
made of the books and ac
counts of the various depart
ments.
The government gave an
answer which was neither
direct or satisfactory.
I sincerely ho.>e sir that
some member will move for
the appointment of a Select
Committee to consider the
question and its answer.
I nm
Mr
Yours respectfully
T. J KIRKLAND MYERS.

"Did you ever read my 'Life

ninded of the case of Consul
Charleston during the civil

foreign Office bag which he
as sending to England. The
lited States insisted '.hat the

the purpose of sreing if it
ntained such letters. As a
attcrof fact it did not, but I
