SAFE ARRIVAL OF THE 3RO BAHAMAS CONTINGENT We are glad to give PuM'C'tylotheaccompaning ^'reless message and to learn ll; 'I'e boys have reached Jamaica Barely. "The 3rd Bahamas Continent arrived in Jamaica yesterday All's well." — o: — The five masted schooner '•Margaret Haskill/ 1 1870 tons, has been washed ashore at Arthurs Town, Cat Island. She sailed from Pensacola on February 18th with a cargo of lumber for Genoa. She "'is abandoned on M irch and mlat. 29 5 o" N. f, 9 45 W.She came ashore bottom Upwards and badly holed in the stem, with the lumber floating out through the hole. She should be worth salving and repair nig as tonnage is so scarce now, and freight rates correspondingly high. The Ward Line Steamer "Monterey" arrived off the port yesterday and after transferring mails and passengers to the tender "Colonia' steamed for Havana. Arrivals per S. S.

Messrs: Thomas Greene, Philip Honywood Mr. James Henderson. — :o: — 22 May, 1916 The Editor of The Tribune Sir, 1 thank you very much for your elucidation of the Editor muddle. It is so very educational, don't you know I never knew so much about the multiplicity of editors required on a newspaper, and 1 shall have no more to say on the subject, but you know. I am like a woman, that is, a society lady. Of course we AcklinsIslanders don't know anything about the usages of good society, but I have been told that when about to take leave of the one they have been visiting, it is the custom to say, "well I must be going," shake hands, mid re main talking for ten or fifteen minutes longer: so I'll ask your leave to follow suit. Place Aux Dames. 1 want to get this thing straight as one of average in telligence may. You say there are three editors viz: t, The Principle, Yourself, 2, The Genial, Some other person, 3, The Frivolous, Some per son other than the imme diately proceeding. I tup pose you see that ihe others "toe the line" and that is as it should be, for it would never do to let them do as they liked. I wonder what is the multiplicity of the edi tors of the London Times, and the New York 11.-raid. Do you think thev have a Frivolous editor too ? Yei' I expect so, perhaps two or three Keep your eve on the "Frivolous. Now when I go home and the Mail brings me the Tribune, I can take it down to Darrell's shop and read it to the boys, and you'll hear them say, ''who wrote that"? And those fellows are just wild to know. And I'll be able to tell them: "Dupuch wrote that" "Dillet, the Genial wrote that" "Dann 'the Frivolous, wrote that" and the boys will like it more than ever they did. Once again thanking you for admitting me to the secrets of the sanctum sanctorum. With this last word, I am You is gratefully ACKLINS SUFFERER. We thank our correspon dent for the above excellent communication, nnd are glad to see that he took our re marks in the light spirit and and hnsacceptedtheexplana tion of our frivolous editor,who by the way, was evident ly trying to be funny-Tin rest of the editorial staff have severely censured the frivolous one and as he has pro mised to behave himself in future we have decided totol lerate him tell the "Genial" one returns. En. No. 7. — :o: — Sunday, 21st May 1916 Editoi Tribune Sir, I was more than surprised to see Oil 'Tuesday last a petition addressed to the Hon. House of Assembly from members of the constituency of the Southern district, pretesting against the erection of a fai and ict plant in the said district I can ns sure you and the general public that we are aliens to the said petition, nor do we know aught of such an industry to be placed in our midst I think sir, those responsible should be brought to justice and punished for for gery, as they are infringing up on the lights and privileges of the good people of the south. Should Judas and his colleagues be successful in obtaining sig natures to the said petition, that the Hon. members 0/ As' sembly would ignore itspresen '.ation and endeavour to punish •mch offendeis. ns offenders against right, truth, and hones tv they are. I do not see why or how a gas plant will be dan' gerous to life and property. I am sure property in and around the Hotel Colonial can't be of much consequence, the gas plant cannot depreciate the value of property as does the Hotel, and further such an industry if started would be a God send for the labouring iSJn. Why is it Mr. Editor, when ever an enterprise that will ben efil the poor man seeks a hold IIIR in this place some radical is always ready to oppose Are we to be contented with a cer tain faction having their own way all our days ? I say No j I am sorry to say, but I fear it is only too true, that Graft is behind it all and not until a spirit of manliness is achieved can we look foiward to future success. As I have already suggested, should that petition reach the Hon. House of Assembly, that the member presenting it and the attached signatures be test ed, as it is a grave matter and has aroused the people's ange. Tor the information of all conr C( 1 ">•<] I may state that Mr. John Matthews is in possession of the petition to which I refer. The F. E C. Co. have things going their own way ai.d give but little employment to Haha mian labour, why then can't some other foreign enterprise which is bound to employ la hour, not be established. Mr. Editor 'twas foreign capital that kept our people hi^Mflast summer, I mean the "MWies* and it is only foreign capita 1 that's helping hundreds of our people to day. What do we gain from home, from this gov eminent down? nothing. I hope sir, by all means that the new industry may bo started here, aye, even in the Southern district If the towns folk are satisfied with the Hotel Colo nial, we can and will be satis Red with a Gas and Ice plant. Thanks for space and time. Yours respectfully ONT. FROM THE SOUTH. (COMMUNICATED) N0TE8 FROM BIMINI. 1916. We are glad to see the "Petrel" on the line again.

The War Situation.
NT
IOWIIEUE is the war fol
lowed so closely as uitli
the leaileis of finance in both
sides of the Atlantic They
best Understand that this ig a
contest of endurance in which
reserves of money, men and
food are of equal importance.
These leseives for many rea
sons cannot be discussed in
the popular press, for their news
gathering sourcesare not allow
ed to pass the facts by the cen
s nship either by telegraph, mail
or travel.
Finance, however, has lines
of its own; and understanding
the fundamentals in this war,
needs only a figure now and then
^Aiew the situation in clear
A canvass of the situation by
news channels, which are not
public, leatis cleaily to the con-
clusion that there is no peace in
sight for iyi6.
'"Jermany has accomplished
nothing since the battle of the
Marat except southeast and to-
ward Constantinople, but here
the reaction has set in. Russia
and England are moving slowly
up toward Constantinople from
the south. More than 700,000
Allies and Serbians will soon be
working up from Salonika to
ward Bulgaria. Roumania
stands firm, armed and equipped
to strike the blow upon the
southern line of Austria so soon
as Russia and her Allies are in
position to protect her southern
boundary against Bulgaria.
The Roumania position is
exactly the same as it was a

to come in with the Allies, but
demanded that Russia be able
first to hold Bulgaria. Events
have shown that the Roumani
angrjnderstood the diplomatic

and that their distust of 1'ul
14,11 ia was merited.
The outlook is that 1916 will
be very bad for Austria on the
southern line of defences. Tur
Ley may not hold out this year,
and, foreseeing the blow that
will be delivered from the south
against Austria, Germany is
driving with her reserves (.1) the
western front in effort to break
the great Stronghold of the
French at Verdun. Hcie 45days
of battle have passed, and thus
far Germany has paid for every
foot of French soil n price in
men which she can ill affoid.
Private advices report that
all the French wounded from
Verdun are being passed tohos
pitals in Ihe south of France,
that the Central and northern
cities may be k' pi clear for the
great drive the Allies plan
against Germany when French
and English reserves are at the

tion of being fully equipped

weakened, the drive will begin
on all side*, and there will be

The finance minister of Ger-
many has declared that after
raising the first -$6,000,000,000.
Germany could not repent. She
has now raised f 9,000,000,000
andin finance cannot go through
1917.
She is likewise exhausting
hei ic serves of men, anil unless
she shortens her line of defences
she cannot hold out in men
through next year.
Now the third vital factor,
and it has never before been
presented in this country, is that
! the lookout in Germany is for
'another poor crop. Last yeai
I the crop was only two thuds,

I crop might feed Germany until
I into 1917.
The most significant despatch
es of the day, however, relate to
the exhaustion of food in the
neighboring neutral countries,
In the latter part ol 1916 the
scorn mic battle w ill be over
the exhaustion of Germany's
gold to buy outside her food
supplies Steadily the Alias
are locking in all the little m u
tral countries and regulating
their food supplies.
Another matter which has
not before been publicly told in
this country, is the reason for
the fithss dajs in Germany.
There is more complaint over
lack of fat than over the bread
and me.it regulatioi 1
Almost everywhere in Ger
many one sees the sign "It is'
forbidden," nod at the railway
Stations and all points of public
gathering are the placards "Sol.

aiy authorities of 11 e Allies
know full well the meaning 1 f
the fat less days in Germany

department may get its give

It is true that infant mortali

Private advices also report
that it was Japanese gunners

The Editor of The Tribune
Sir,
1 thank you very much for
your elucidation of the
Editor muddle. It is so very
educational, don't you know
I never knew so much about
the multiplicity of editors re-
quired on a newspaper, and
1 shall have no more to say
on the subject, but you know.
I am like a woman, that is, a
society lady. Of course we
AcklinsIslanders don't know
anything about the usages of
good society, but I have been
told that when about to take
leave of the one they have
been visiting, it is the custom
to say, "well I must be go-
ing," shake hands, mid re
main talking for ten or fifteen
minutes longer: so I'll ask
your leave to follow suit.
Place Aux Dames.
1 want to get this thing
straight as one of average in
telligence may. You say there
are three editors viz:
t, The Principle, Yourself,
2, The Genial, Some other
person,
3, The Frivolous, Some per
son other than the imme
diately proceeding. I tup
pose you see that ihe others
"toe the line" and that is as
it should be, for it would
never do to let them do as
they liked. I wonder what
is the multiplicity of the edi
tors of the London Times,
and the New York 11.-raid.
Do you think thev have a
Frivolous editor too ? Yei' I
expect so, perhaps two or
three Keep your eve on the
"Frivolous. '
Now when I go home and
the Mail brings me the Tri-
bune, I can take it down to
Darrell's shop and read it to
the boys, and you'll hear them
say, ''who wrote that"? And
those fellows are just wild to
know. And I'll be able to
tell them: "Dupuch wrote
that" "Dillet, the Genial
wrote that" "Dann 'the Fri-
volous, wrote that" and the
boys will like it more than
ever they did.
Once again thanking you
for admitting me to the se-
crets of the sanctum sancto-
rum. With this last word,
I am You is gratefully
ACKLINS SUFFERER.
We thank our correspon
dent for the above excellent
communication, nnd are glad
to see that he took our re
marks in the light spirit and
and hnsacceptedtheexplana
tion of our frivolous editor,- -
who by the way, was evident
ly trying to be funny- -Tin
rest of the editorial staff have
severely censured the frivo-
lous one and as he has pro
mised to behave himself in
future we have decided totol
lerate him tell the "Genial"
one returns. En. No. 7.

Editoi Tribune
Sir,
I was more than surprised to
see Oil 'Tuesday last a petition
addressed to the Hon. House of
Assembly from members of the
constituency of the Southern
district, pretesting against the
erection of a fai and ict plant
in the said district I can ns
sure you and the general public
that we are aliens to the said
petition, nor do we know aught
of such an industry to be placed
in our midst I think sir, those
responsible should be brought
to justice and punished for for
gery, as they are infringing up
on the lights and privileges of
the good people of the south.
Should Judas and his colleagues
be successful in obtaining sig
natures to the said petition,
that the Hon. members 0/ As'
sembly would ignore itspresen
'.ation and endeavour to punish
mch offendeis. ns offenders
against right, truth, and hones
tv they are. I do not see why
or how a gas plant will be dan'
gerous to life and property. I
am sure property in and around
the Hotel Colonial can't be of
much consequence, the gas plant
cannot depreciate the value of
property as does the Hotel, and
further such an industry if
started would be a God send
for the labouring iSJn.
Why is it Mr. Editor, when
ever an enterprise that will ben
efil the poor man seeks a hold
iiir in this place some radical
is always ready to oppose Are
we to be contented with a cer
tain faction having their own
way all our days ? I say No j
I am sorry to say, but I fear
it is only too true, that Graft is
behind it all and not until a
spirit of manliness is achieved
can we look foiward to future
success.
As I have already suggested,
should that petition reach the
Hon. House of Assembly, that
the member presenting it and
the attached signatures be test
ed, as it is a grave matter and
has aroused the people's ange.
Tor the information of all conr
C( 1 "><] I may state that Mr.
John Matthews is in possession
of the petition to which I refer.
The F. E C. Co. have things
going their own way ai.d give
but little employment to Haha
mian labour, why then can't
some other foreign enterprise
which is bound to employ la
hour, not be established. Mr.
Editor 'twas foreign capital
that kept our people hi^Mflast
summer, I mean the "MWies*
and it is only foreign capita 1
that's helping hundreds of our
people to day. What do we
gain from home, from this gov
eminent down? nothing. I
hope sir, by all means that the
new industry may bo started
here, aye, even in the Southern
district If the towns folk are
satisfied with the Hotel Colo
nial, we can and will be satis
Red with a Gas and Ice plant.
Thanks for space and time.
Yours respectfully
ONT. FROM THE SOUTH.
