A rtrtiNMMsti under eight lines 4-. i __, Zbc tribune Thursday. May 10. 1916 S?^^ 'Hie 3rd Contingent had a fine send-off yesterday. About -in hour before the time for their departure a slight shower of rain fell and we wondered whether we were to have a wet afternoon. Bui the clouds cleared away and rain did not appear till all was well over. The men marched clown to martial music and were ranged on the Eastern and Western sides of the green at Rawson Square. The girl guides and the boyscoutsset off the scene beautifully along with the police uniforms of the band and other members of the force, and the celebrities on the platform and the other occupants of chairs around the platform gave another dash of variety while the varied colours in whi< h those surrounding the green were clothed formed a beautiful Retting to the animated scene in the centre. Hi-. Excellency the Gover nor made a short pithy speech which was greatly apprecia ted, No time was then lost in getting the men on to the "Zellers" and "Kate Sturrup". So,.n the tug "Colonia" had the two vessels in tow. A loving picture apparatus hotogiaphed the scene from various points, and on the "Zellers" four Contingent men stood amidships and tried to raise their voices above the din in efforis to make speeches. But, sad to relate, their eloquent words were not heard. The boys perched themselves in all sorts of picturesque positions while a crowd ..hid) partly laughed and partly cried waved ferv nt good-byes to them. It was a well-behaved crowd and the various sail and motor boats that were darting about while the two schooners were getting away lent much life to the scene. The Police Band dis coursed a variety of music in fine style from the deck of the "Colonia" while she was towing the "Zellers" and the "Kate Sturrup", and when a rag time item was on, many people, both on the boats and on the land,sway ed themselves to the time thereof in rylhmic fashion. I hose who witnessed the scene will not easily forget it, and many who would scorn to weep loudly found a strange choking sensation at the throat as this new body of soldiers left our shore. Those of the contingent who sailed on the "Zellers" were under the care of Capt. Cole while Capt. Dillet had the control of those who em barked on the "Kate Sturrup." — :o: — Governor's Address at the Departure of 3rd Con tingent.— We are assembled here this afternoon to say 'Good bye' and to wish 'God speed' to our Third Contingent, and I may mention incidentally that the Island of Eleuthera, and more particularly the Settlement of Savannah Sound, has contributed more men to this Contingent than an) other place. Our other two Contingents are at the front. Much has occurred in the war areas since our First Contingent left our shores, and new and unexpected phases have developed. Our enemies have devised fresh forms of 'frightfulness' improved types of aircraft, more powerfully destructive bombs, more fiendish liquid fire, and have done their utmost to accentuate their barbaric methods of submarine warfare, but these together have only helped to stiffen the determination of our Empire and our noble Allies conjointly to see the war through to a successful finish, cost what it may in lives and in money, for it is more and more apparent that we must either win or go under permanently. Here in this Colony we are almost if not quite as prosperous as we have been for many years past, and the question may reasonably be asked, 'Have we risen to the height either of our duty or our responsibilities?' It has occurred to me occasionally that instead of concentrating our thoughts U| nri the life and death struggle in which we are engaged, using our utmost iffoits to encourage more m< n to join the Colours, and doing our maximum for th^ Umpire in other ways, we have at times allowed our everyday p 'rsuils and minor considerations to preoccupy our minds. This stale of things may be due in a measure to a lack of imagination on our pait, and to I he fact, that, thanks to the British Navy, we have neither had shells fired into Nassau nor been subjected to an enemy raid, but have been able to follow and are following without hindianceor interruption our ordinary avocations. In the old Country the critical nature of the situation and the need for 'Men and still more Men' is apparent from the military compulsion Bill which was introduced into the House of Commons last week. It is a seriously debatable question as to whether a Britisher has aright to live at this crisis of our national existence if, presuming he is physically capable of bearing arms and is not required by the State in some other capacity he is unwilling to don Mis Majesty's "Uniform and fightand die if needful— fOAthe 'Great Cause'. What is tlie "Great Cause'? It is fiSe Cause of Civilization and Humanity against the Devil. 'Better that all our ship? an' all our crews 'Should sink to roj in ocean's dreamless ooze, 'Each torn flag wavin' challenge as it went, 'An' each dum gun a brave man's monument. 'Than seek seen peace ez only cowards crave; 'Give me the peace of dead men or of brave.' In France, where, I regret to say, every third woman is in mourning, the seriousness of the struggle has long since been realized as also the mighty issue's nt stake. Our gallant French Allies have an indomitable coinage, patriotism, and fighting 1 apa city, which is the admiration of the civilized world. With them on the out break of hostilities the spirit of self-sacrifice at once permeated all classes of the nation, and has now reached H point which may well serve as airfnmple to many of us. I wTil Exemplify what I mean. On the M < KKICII ( asing of a .in nibproof in a first line trench within pistol shot of the enemy, thn e lines in Erench which were not wrilti n to be seen, still less to be repeated, were found lately by one of our correspondents. They ran as follows:— 'My body to the earth, 'My Soul to God, 'My hcai t to France.' Men of the Third Bahamas Contingent take these three beautiful and pathetic lines with you wherever you are sent and think over them; you cannot fail to find them helpful. It now only remains for me on behalf of myself and the Colon' to say that we are proud of you, that you will be much in our thoughts white absent, that we have every confidence thai you will be a terror to \ •off enemies, and to wish you one

'Hie 3rd Contingent had a
fine send-off yesterday.
About -in hour before the
time for their departure a
slight shower of rain fell and
we wondered whether we
were to have a wet afternoon.
Bui the clouds cleared away
and rain did not appear till
all was well over.
The men marched clown to
martial music and were rang-
ed on the Eastern and Wes-
tern sides of the green at
Rawson Square. The girl
guides and the boyscoutsset
off the scene beautifully
along with the police uni-
forms of the band and other
members of the force, and the
celebrities on the platform
and the other occupants of
chairs around the platform
gave another dash of variety
while the varied colours in
whi< h those surrounding the
green were clothed formed a
beautiful Retting to the ani-
mated scene in the centre.
Hi-. Excellency the Gover
nor made a short pithy speech
which was greatly apprecia
ted, No time was then lost
in getting the men on to the
"Zellers" and "Kate Sturrup".
So,.n the tug "Colonia" had
the two vessels in tow. A
loving picture apparatus
hotogiaphed the scene from
various points, and on the
"Zellers" four Contingent
men stood amidships and
tried to raise their voices
above the din in efforis to
make speeches. But, sad to
relate, their eloquent words
were not heard. The boys
perched themselves in all
sorts of picturesque positions
while a crowd ..hid) partly
laughed and partly cried
waved ferv nt good-byes to
them. It was a well-behav-
ed crowd and the various
sail and motor boats that
were darting about while the
two schooners were getting
away lent much life to the
scene. The Police Band dis
coursed a variety of music in
fine style from the deck of
the "Colonia" while she
was towing the "Zellers" and
the "Kate Sturrup", and
when a rag time item was
on, many people, both on the
boats and on the land,sway
ed themselves to the time
thereof in rylhmic fashion.
I hose who witnessed the
scene will not easily forget
it, and many who would
scorn to weep loudly found a
strange choking sensation at
the throat as this new body
of soldiers left our shore.
Those of the contingent
who sailed on the "Zellers"
were under the care of Capt.
Cole while Capt. Dillet had
the control of those who em
barked on the "Kate Stur-
rup."
:o:
Governor's Address at the
Departure of 3rd Con
tingent.
We are assembled here this
afternoon to say 'Good bye'
and to wish 'God speed' to
our Third Contingent, and I
may mention incidentally
that the Island of Eleuthera,
and more particularly the
Settlement of Savannah
Sound, has contributed more
men to this Contingent than
an) other place. Our other
two Contingents are at the
front.
Much has occurred in the
war areas since our First
Contingent left our shores,
and new and unexpected
phases have developed. Our
enemies have devised fresh
forms of 'frightfulness' im-
proved types of aircraft, more
powerfully destructive bombs,
more fiendish liquid fire,
and have done their utmost
to accentuate their barbaric
methods of submarine war-
fare, but these together have
only helped to stiffen the
determination of our Empire
and our noble Allies con-
jointly to see the war through
to a successful finish, cost
what it may in lives and in
money, for it is more and
more apparent that we must
either win or go under per-
manently.
Here in this Colony we are
almost if not quite as pros-
perous as we have been for
many years past, and the
question may reasonably be
asked, 'Have we risen to the
height either of our duty or
our responsibilities?' It has
occurred to me occasionally
that instead of concentrating
our thoughts U| nri the life
and death struggle in which
we are engaged, using our
utmost iffoits to encourage
more m< n to join the Colours,
and doing our maximum for
th^ Umpire in other ways,
we have at times allowed our
everyday p 'rsuils and minor
considerations to preoccupy
our minds.
This stale of things may
be due in a measure to a lack
of imagination on our pait,
and to I he fact, that, thanks
to the British Navy, we have
neither had shells fired into
Nassau nor been subjected to
an enemy raid, but have been
able to follow and are fol-
lowing without hindianceor
interruption our ordinary
avocations. In the old Coun-
try the critical nature of the
situation and the need for
'Men and still more Men' is
apparent from the military
compulsion Bill which was
introduced into the House of
Commons last week. It is a
seriously debatable question
as to whether a Britisher has
aright to live at this crisis
of our national existence if,
presuming he is physically
capable of bearing arms and
is not required by the State
in some other capacity he is
unwilling to don Mis Majes-
ty's "Uniform and fight- and
die if needful fOAthe 'Great
Cause'. What is tlie "Great
Cause'? It is fiSe Cause of
Civilization and Humanity
against the Devil.
'Better that all our ship? an' all
our crews
'Should sink to roj in ocean's
dreamless ooze,
'Each torn flag wavin' challenge
as it went,
'An' each dum gun a brave
man's monument.
'Than seek seen peace ez only
cowards crave;
'Give me the peace of dead men
or of brave.'
In France, where, I regret
to say, every third woman is
in mourning, the seriousness
of the struggle has long since
been realized as also the
mighty issue's nt stake. Our
gallant French Allies have
an indomitable coinage, pat-
riotism, and fighting 1 apa
city, which is the admiration
of the civilized world. With
them on the out break of hos-
tilities the spirit of self-sacri-
fice at once permeated all
classes of the nation, and has
now reached h point which
may well serve as airfnmp-
le to many of us. I wTil Ex-
emplify what I mean. On the
M < kkIcii ( asing of a .in nib-
proof in a first line trench
within pistol shot of the
enemy, thn e lines in Erench
which were not wrilti n to
be seen, still less to be repeat-
ed, were found lately by one
of our correspondents. They
ran as follows:
'My body to the earth,
'My Soul to God,
'My hcai t to France.'
Men of the Third Bahamas
Contingent take these three
beautiful and pathetic lines
with you wherever you are
sent and think over them;
you cannot fail to find them
helpful.
It now only remains for
me on behalf of myself and
the Colon' to say that we
are proud of you, that you
will be much in our thoughts
white absent, that we have
every confidence thai you
will be a terror to \off ene-
mies, and to wish you one


<
and all 'Goodbye' & 'God-
speed'.
'In the beauty of the lilies Chrit
wag born across tlie sea,
'With a elory in his bosom that
transfigures yoif&nd me,
'As he died to make men holy,
let us die to make me.i free,
'While God is marching on.'
:o:
We have been requested to
state that the following tele-
gram was received by the

tingent yesterday:

tion of Virginia presented

to the Third Bahamas Con-
tingent through Lady Wil-
liams-Taylor and His Excel-
lency the Governor.

JJnes on the F.ase of Column
* Writing.
Webster has the words, and I
Pick them up from where thev
lie,
Twist and turn them one by one
And pive them places in The
Sun.
Here a word, and there a word
It's so easy 'tis absurd !
I merely range them in a row,
Webster's done the worlf, you
know !
Word follows word, till, inch
by inch,
I have a column What a
cinch !
I take the words that Webster
penned
And merely lay them end to
end !
