But although they cut off all telegraphic nmunication l>e t ween Dublin and the outside World, they were not able to find and sever the telephone wire leading to the Cnrragh Camp.

Nulllua ddiclus (urarc In vcili* m&M'alrl Using bound to MHf to lha Doim&i of no Master. VOL. XIII. Nmu, N.P.. B&hmM, TUESDAY May. 9 1916 No. 146 I Norfolk Islanders To Fight For England (Descendants of Mutineers of the Bounty Volunteer.) Five swarthy young men, whose last names are, respectively, Christian, Quintal, Evans Buffet, and Snell, are now in the Liverpool camp, near Syd ney, in training with thousands of Australians for active service —and thereby hangs a tale. They are Norfolk islanders, and are direct descendants of the mutineers of the Bounty. Fletcher Christian, the first, was the leader of the party w hich in 1788, offTahiti, broke into Lieutenant Bligh's cabin, and with the aid of the boatswain, Quintal, and others set that officer adrift with several companions in an open boat; after which the conspirators navigat ed the Bounty back to Tahiti took on a number of Tahitian women, and a few Tahitian men, and eventually settled on Pitcairn Island. And here are their offspring, a few generations removed, recruits in the British ranks. Norfolk Island is five days by steam from Sydney. It is a veritable garden, five miles long and three milts wide. The people are a distinct type; most of them have lived nowhere else. Pitcairn Island, i.aoo miles from Tahiti, is where the mutineers destroyed tht Bounty, and formed themselves into a colony. Although within five years all of the mutineers save one had either died or been murdred by the Tahitian men, their half caste children surviv ed, and tht^settlement prosper ed. MeaJ^.ie, U pan Bligh's reaching T.ngland, and giving an account of the mutiny, a British frigate was dispatched to the South Seas to find Christ ian and his associates. She failed in this punitive mission, and it was not until twenty years afterward, when the mutineer's families had reached manhood and womanhood, that an American whaler—this was in an era when the Stars and Stripes were a commoner sight on the Pacific,comparatively speaking, than they are in the year of grace 1916— chanced to discover Pitcairn Island. It was thus that the world first learned of the fate of the Bounty and her crew. Norfolk Island, between the years 1826 and 1855, wflS vef itable hell because of England's lack of knowledge of penology, but in 1856 a brighter day dawned for the charming spot. Having been abandoned as a convict station, it was made a home for Pitcairn Islanders, whose place of habitation had grown too cramped for them. It is worthy of note, however, that some of the Pitcairners could not reconcile themselves to the change of environment, and at their own request they were returned to their old home. It should also be explained that the children of the mutineers had some time before this been pardoned by Queen Victoria for their fathers' crime, and that Pitcairn Island had been given over to their use under Governmental sanction. It was by this transfer of settlers from Pitcairn to Norfolk Island that the Christian, Quintal, Evans, Snell, and Buffett families became residents of the latter, and now their scions are recruits in the Australian army. The war spirit runs high on Norfolk Island. There is not a newspaper on the island, not a politician to make speeches, and no way of hearing contin ously of the war save thiough the station of the "All Red" cable running between Sydney and Auckland and Vancouver — Norfolk Island being a relay point on that line; yet of the few hundred males of military age almost fifty are now British soldiers, and one lies in a grave on the Gallipoii Peninsula; money has been raised for patriotic funds to the extent of several thousand dollars; ab undant gifts of fruit preserves have been made for Commonwealth troops; there is a flour ishing Red Cross Society and the women of the island have sent to Sydney a considerable quantity of garments and "com forts" for soldiers Aside from the newspapers which ronie by (he Sydney Norfolk Island steamer service, meagre tidings of the war are derived from the cable office and these are post ed up on a tree at across roads. A PUBLIC SEND-OFF Messrs. Christian, Quintal, Buffet, Snell, and Evans had a public send-off the middle of January at the Longridge teonis ground. Tennis, by the way, is perhaps the most popular of the island diversions and there are many good players. Almost every islander was there; snowy afternoon tea cloths, spread with eatables, lay upon the thick grass, when the five youths were marched to the front of the assemblage. The enthusiasm which ran through the little crowd and manifested itself in prolonged appalause had barely passed when Cornish Quintal, one of the island patriarchs st< pped forward. With his head bared he made a short speech to the young m

She failed in this punitive mission, and it was not until twenty years afterward, when the mutineer's families had reached manhood and womanhood, that an American whaler—this was in an era when the Stars and Stripes were a commoner sight on the Pacific, comparatively speaking, than they are in the year of grace 1916— chanced to discover Pitcairn Island. It was thus that the world first learned of the fate of the Bounty and her crew.

Norfolk Islanders To Fight
For England
(Descendants of Mutineers of the Bounty Volunteer.)
Five swarthy young men,
whose last names are, respect,
ively, Christian,Quintal, Evans
Buffet, and Snell, are now in
the Liverpool camp, neac.Syd
ney, in training with thousands
of Australians for active service
and thereby hangs a tale.
They are Norfolk islanders, and
are direct descendants of the
mutineers of the Bounty. Fle-
tcher Christian, the first, was
the leader oftjie patty which
In11788, off%hiti, broke into
Lieutenant Bligh's cabin, and
with the aid of the boatswain,
Quintal, and others set that of-
ficer adrift with several com-
panions in an open boat; after
which the conspirators navigat
ed the Bounty back to Tahiti,
took on a number of Tahitian
women, and a few Tahitian
men, and eventually settled on
Pitcairn Island. And here are
their offspring, a few genera-
tions removed, recruits in the
British ranks.
Norfolk Island is five days
by steam from Sydney. It is a
veritable garden, five miles
long and three milts wide. The
people are a distinct type; most
of them have lived nowhere
else. Pitcairn Island, 1,200
miles from Tahiti, is where the
mutineers destroyed the Bounty,
and formed themselves into a
colony. Although within five
year? all "of the mutineers save
one had either died or been
murdtred by the Tahitian men,
their half caste children surviv
ed, and th^settltment prosper
ed. Mea^.ne, Upen Bligh's
reaching T.ngland, and giving
an account of the mutiny, a
British frigate was dispatched
to the South Seas to find Christ-
ian and his associates. She fail-
ed in this punitive mission, and
it was not until twenty years
afterward, when the mutineer's
families had reached manhood
and womanhood, that an Am-
erican whalerthis was in an
era when the Stars and Stripes
were a commoner sight on the
Pacific, comparatively speaking,
than they are in the year of
grace 1916chanced to discov-
er Pitcairn Island. It was thus
that the world first learned of
the fate of the Bounty and her
crew.
Norfolk Island, between the
years 1826 and 1855, was a ver
liable hell because of England's
lack of knowledge of penology,
but in 1856 a brighter day
dawned for the charming spot.
Having been abandoned as a
convict station, it was made a
home for Pitcairn Islanders,
whose place of habitation had
grown too cramped for them.
It is worthy of note, however,
that sunn of the Pitcairners
could not reconcile themselves
to the change of environment,
and at their own request they
were returned to their old home.
It should also be explained that
the children of the mutineers
had some time before this been
pardoned by Queen Victoria
for their fathers' crime, and
that Pitcairn Island had been
given over to their use under
Governmental sanction. It was
by this transfer of settlers from
Pitcairn to Norfolk Island that
the Christian, Quintal, Evans,
Snell, and Buffett families be-
came residents of the latter,
and now their scions are re-
cruits in the Australian army.
The war spirit runs high on
Norfolk Island. There is not a
newspaper on the island, not a
politician to make speeches,
and bo way of hearing contin
ously of the war save tlnough
the station of the "All Red"
cable running between Sydney
and Auckland and Vancouver-
Norfolk Island being a relay
point on that line; yet of the
few hundred males of military
age almost fifty are now British
soldiers, and one lies in a grave
on the Gallipoli Peninsula;
money has been raised for pat-
riotic funds to the extent of
several thousand dollars; ab
undant gifts of fruit preserves
have been made for Common-
wealth troops; there is a flour
ishing Red Cross Society and
the women of the island have
sent to Sydney a considerable
quantity of garments and "com-
forts" for soldiers Aside from
the newspapers which come by
the Sydney Norfolk Island
steamer service, meagre tidings
of the war are derived from the
cable office and these are post
ed up on a tree at across roads.
A PUBLIC SEND-OFF
Messrs. Christian, Quintal,
Buffet, Snell, and Evans had a
public send-off the middle of
January at the Longridge ten-
nis ground. Tennis, by the way.
is perhaps the most popular of
the island diversions and there
are many good players. Almost
every islander was there; snow y
afternoon tea cloths, spread
with eatables, lay upon the
thick grass, when the five youths
were marched to the front of
the assemblage.
The enthusiasm which ran
through the little crowd and
manifested itself in prolonged
appalause had barely passed
when Cornish Quintal, one of
the island patriarchs stepi ed
forward. With his head bared

One cablegram announces:
"In many places besides
Dublin the Nationalist vot

initiative mobilized in sup
port of the troops."
The Viceroy of Ireland,
Lord Wimb irne, says that
the rebels gained their first
advantages through a sur
prise attack. Hut although
they cut off all telegraphic
communication between
Dublin and the outside
world, they were not able to
find and sever the telephone
wire leading to the Curragh
Camp. Thus soldiers wi re
quickly brought to the spot
and it was not long before
the revolution was under
control.

Norfolk Islanders To Fight
For England
(Descendants of Mutineers of the Bounty Volunteer.)
Five swarthy young men,
whose last names are, respect-
ively, Christian, Quintal, Evans
Buffet, and Snell, are now in
the Liverpool camp, near Syd
ney, in training with thousands
of Australians for active service
and thereby hangs a tale.
They are Norfolk islanders, and
are direct descendants of the
mutineers of the Bounty. Fle-
tcher Christian, the first, was
the leader of the party which
in 1788, offTahiti, broke into
Lieutenant Bligh's cabin, and
with the aid of the boatswain,
Quintal, and others set that of-
ficer adrift with several com-
panions in an open boat; after
which the conspirators navigat
ed the Bounty back to Tahiti
took on a number of Tahitian
women, and a few Tahitian
men, and eventually settled on
Pitcairn Island. And here are
their offspring, a few genera-
tions removed, recruits in the
British ranks.
Norfolk Island is five days
by steam from Sydney. It is a
veritable garden, five miles
long and three milts wide. The
people are a distinct type; most
of them have lived nowhere
else. Pitcairn Island, i.aoo
miles from Tahiti, is where the
mutineers destroyed tht Bounty,
and formed themselves into a
colony. Although within five
years all of the mutineers save
one had either died or been
murdred by the Tahitian men,
their half caste children surviv
ed, and tht^settlement prosper
ed. MeaJ^.ie, Upan Bligh's
reaching T.ngland, and giving
an account of the mutiny, a
British frigate was dispatched
to the South Seas to find Christ
ian and his associates. She fail-
ed in this punitive mission, and
it was not until twenty years
afterward, when the mutineer's
families had reached manhood
and womanhood, that an Am-
erican whalerthis was in an
era when the Stars and Stripes
were a commoner sight on the
Pacific,comparatively speaking,
than they are in the year of
grace 1916chanced to discov-
er Pitcairn Island. It was thus
that the world first learned of
the fate of the Bounty and her
crew.
Norfolk Island, between the
years 1826 and 1855, wflS vef-
itable hell because of England's
lack of knowledge of penology,
but in 1856 a brighter day
dawned for the charming spot.
Having been abandoned as a
convict station, it was made a
home for Pitcairn Islanders,
whose place of habitation had
grown too cramped for them.
It is worthy of note, however,
that some of the Pitcairners
could not reconcile themselves
to the change of environment,
and at their own request they
were returned to their old home.
It should also be explained that
the children of the mutineers
had some time before this been
pardoned by Queen Victoria
for their fathers' crime, and
that Pitcairn Island had been
given over to their use under
Governmental sanction. It was
by this transfer of settlers from
Pitcairn to Norfolk Island that
the Christian, Quintal, Evans,
Snell, and Buffett families be-
came residents of the latter,
and now their scions are re-
cruits in the Australian army.
The war spirit runs high on
Norfolk Island. There is not a
newspaper on the island, not a
politician to make speeches,
and no way of hearing contin
ously of the war save thiough
the station of the "All Red"
cable running between Sydney
and Auckland and Vancouver
Norfolk Island being a relay
point on that line; yet of the
few hundred males of military
age almost fifty are now British
soldiers, and one lies in a grave
on the Gallipoii Peninsula;
money has been raised for pat-
riotic funds to the extent of
several thousand dollars; ab
undant gifts of fruit preserves
have been made for Common-
wealth troops; there is a flour
ishing Red Cross Society and
the women of the island have
sent to Sydney a considerable
quantity of garments and "com
forts" for soldiers Aside from
the newspapers which ronie by
(he Sydney Norfolk Island
steamer service, meagre tidings
of the war are derived from the
cable office and these are post
ed up on a tree at across roads.
A PUBLIC SEND-OFF
Messrs. Christian, Quintal,
Buffet, Snell, and Evans had a
public send-off the middle of
January at the Longridge teo-
nis ground. Tennis, by the way,
is perhaps the most popular of
the island diversions and there
are many good players. Almost
every islander was there; snowy
afternoon tea cloths, spread
with eatables, lay upon the
thick grass, when the five youths
were marched to the front of
the assemblage.
The enthusiasm which ran
through the little crowd and
manifested itself in prolonged
appalause had barely passed
when Cornish Quintal, one of
the island patriarchs st< pped
forward. With his head bared
he made a short speech to the
young m words of which were:
"Be brave, for you are 'e-
scended from tht brav< si men
that ever lived. Youi fon fath-
ers were the onlj men who ever
look a British battleship Who
should fight for England as ui
children? How would th < ier-
mans have dealt with yeur
forefathers? England !' r|

them tin- ful island. F ight

From fuller news lately re
ceived, we are able to get a
better idea of the Irish rebel
lion than our meagre wireless
news has given us.
It appears th it Mr. John
Redmond ihe Irish Nation
alist leade. gave udvice to
the Home Rulers to cooper
ate with the Government in
suppressing the rebellion.
Mr. Redmond has placed him
self absolutely at the dispbS
al of the authorities and is in
constant touch with them.
< toe cablegram annoum s :
"In many places besides
I iblin Hie Nationalist vot
havi abead> m theirown
initiative mobilizi d in sup
port of the troops."
l'lie Viceroy of Ireland,
Lord Wimborne, says thai
the rebels gained their first
advantages through a sur
prise attack. But although
they cut off all telegraphic
communication between
Dublin and the outside
world, they were not able to
find and sever the telephone
wire hading to the Cnrragh
Camp. Thus soldiers were
qui< kly brought to the spot
and it was not long before
the revolution was under
control.

The New York Times of
April 30th gives a picture of
Russian troops drieling in
Paris. They have been in
France s.ince the beginning

landed at Toulon in civilian
