The Forking Of Turkey.
From the Now York I nn s.

from command "I the Czar* de-
fense and sent to the Caucasus,
tiie assumption w ,is tlmt In- had
been sacrificed to royal displea
sure. Some military expi its
thought Ins stiategy had bei i
brilliant in retreat, and yet it
was easy to understand thai in
Russian eyes failuie to stop i lie
invader might have outweigh* d
the intrinsic merits of his per-
formance. He had l>;iill<-<1 the
Germans, lie had saved the Kits-
i \iniv From capture or J.e
struction, but he had lost Po
l*#' and tin- ^renter part of
^li l.itlni mia. The CnuCBSUI
was Far a way ind sei med then
an unimportant theatre. Devel
opments have changed the as
pect of affairs. The Germans
went bardly any further into
Russia, The "eastern front is
almost (lie same as when the
Grand Duke, left it. The fight
ing has diminished to a mini
mum. Bui in Asia Minor large
events are taking place.
From his Caucasian bases the
Grand Duke is driving a prong
ed fork into Turkey. One prong,
sliding along the edge of the
Black Sea, is aimed atConstan
tinople; another is penetrating
a very mountainous country in a
central southerly direction and
is intended to cut Turkey's
transverse communications, and
another pointed straight at
Magdad from the northeast, has
already pierced the Turco Per
sian mountain barrier almost to
Khanikin, 110 miles from the
Holy City, on the plains of
Mesopotamia. The operation
is somewhat like driving a fork
mi., n mole hill The Tutk maj
euhi i i e impal d or trapped
bctwei n two | Dugs, In the
ise of being trapped he might

desert, but that would mean to

Mesopi>taniia. It wi uld esti b
lish rontl Cl at once bftw. i
he Russians and the Knglish
coming u|) the Euphrati s Ri\er
from the Persian Gulf.
The charai tei of the Grand
Duke's operations is determined
by the extreme difficulties of the
( ounin wiiich is u r\ moun
lainous in all approm lies to
Me opotamia, uli few and
\\ reu hoi roads and si auty -us
tenauce. I lie invading forces
have to go i,i thin columns and
rely entirely upon their distant

I ties of transportation must be
enormous. There are military
experts who think that when
the history of the war is written
in perspective, this Caucasian
campaign will be one of its
most interesting and important
chapters, provided it succeeds.
It is now possible to believe
that when the Grand Duke
NICHOLAS was relieved from
command on the eastern front
it was done with a view to the
importance! of Asia Minor as
theatre of war and his special
ability to peiform there a task
of prodigious proportions. If
that is true, then Russian fore
sight and strategy deserve to be
v. ry highly thought of, for un
doubtedly the Germans wen
unprepared in Asia Minor and)
taken off their guard.

ThurjJiy. Juno I, 1916
We welcome Ibe Act whi< h
is at present before the legis-
lature, for the formation of
L VOLUNTEER corpsiu the
Bahamas.
We have to recognize our
duties and liabilities to the
Lmpire of which we form a
part, and are convinced that
tins new move on the part of
the government will awaken
ech ies of loyalty in every
hear! All the other parts of
the Empire have passed or
are passing simi lai enact-
ments and we are convinced
that our little colony will
not be found wanting. I he
bill will compel nobody
t 1 serve; But those who will,
m ly. fraining, wo presume,
will only occupy al the most,
a few lionrs per week, and
will not interfere with the
ordinary duties of life. This
will I),- a splendid opportu
ni ty for our young men to
It "ii Physical culture, and
we hope that our Voluntei i
is m ly beime i pei mm
nit institution, instead of a
merelj temporary oneasat
present proposed.
:o:
We shall be glad if Out-
Island correspondents will
b nr in mind (he fart thai at
this time there are so manv
calls oil our sp ice that we
find ii impossible to publish
lengthy reports of Concerts
and other functions, especial
ly when the programme is ad
ded to the report. We shall,
of course do our best to in-
clude all items of interest
that our correspondent may
be able from time to time to
send to us, but we respectful
ly beg them to recollect that
nowadays, when then' is so
much to publish of Imperial
and international importance
local items must be repo ted
as briefly as possible.

I regret to have to inform
you that I received a ( able

Intolerant Ecclesiasticism
in the Bahamas Episcopal
Church
30th May, 1916.
I (ear Tribune,
Why is it that there is no
unity among professing
Christians in Nassau ? V
ly 2000 years have elapsed
since the Apostle ol the (Jen
tiles emphasizi d and exhoi t-
ed the Corinthian Chun h to
unity, and he reproved theii
dissensions sarcasth ally, de-
siring to know if there had
been a division of the bod}
of Christ. All the Chinches
of the period fell under the
same error, so thai five years
latei he had Again to add
the Church at Ephesus to the
same effect, declaring "One
Lord, one faith, one bapl ism,
one God and Father of all."
Xow a tracbiion merely.
The Christian Chin, h to
day needs the same exhorta
tion. We may eliminate all
but the Churches of the Re-
formation, for those winch
preceded them were intoler-
able. In view of t he bigotry
and intolerance prncl ised b\
Olie branch of the Christ i in
Church todav may we no|
say that iri these twnch irac-
teristics that church is a lm.
ial descendant of the Coiin-
thian and Ephesian Church-
es ?
Witness the attitude of
that Church on Empire Sun-
day, and say if you can with
any pretext of candour and
honesty if t lie foi bidding the
Girl Guidi s who wi re Epis-
copalians f 1 on: atti ndii g I he
Services at Tiillit) Wesleyan
Church was in accord-with
the spirit of Chi ist, the spirit
of Unity. And yet it prays
for the coming of Christ's
Kingdom. We are compel
led to ask in all rev rence,
Wlin h Chi 1st ? Tin- Christ
of th.' Episcopalians, or the
Presbj t< 1 '.ns. 01 the Wesley
ans, or the Baptists, or tlie
Roman Catholics? If the
Kingdom of Christ be the
intolerant eofecclesiasticism,
then away with it, for SO
long as it is bound by the
iris of ecclesiasticism, it
will remain the kingdom of
Satan.
rhink of it- Empire Sun-
day of all days, the day chos
en by a church to give fi
and effect to the slavish edict,
the chaining i f nonscien
the stirring up of strife, delu
sions, hen sies
Will it h ive the approval
of the Monarch i ( the 131 itish
Empire ?
I )id it have God's apprOV
al?
Yours sorrowfully,
NEUTRAL.

My Deai boys and girls:
It gives me much pleasure
to respond to your addrfl -
handed to me by you on the
eve of my departure from

Though in sorrow, it made
me feel gl id to set; that the
seed sown by me has not
die I eotirely, and my labour
is not in vain,
One does not know who is
bis friend until he gets in
trouble or is going away. So
also, I did not know of the
love you entertained*for me
until 1 was on the eve of
leaving you.
With regard to kindness
and care Tor you, it is my
lvut' !: '.] tv to be kind to
; 1 vCpT ireful v itli mv pupils
and to gi\ c them good ad
vire.
braving your shores has
caused me much sorrow, and
I hope your wish for me to
return infutuiemav be grant
ed. I shall always inquire
about you, as to your suc-
cess. Thanking you very
much for vour kind address
and wishes.

Sir,
