Of :ourse we have to make the usual deductions for the opusra of the victors, but after all discounts have been made it i obvious that a great drive is in progress. If the Russians only have the equipment and ammunition, they will go far.

Dont forget that you can spend a very pleasant evening at the PATRIOTIC CONCERT to be given in S.Agnes schoolroom tonight in aid of the Bahamas Red Cross Fund The Schooner "/Cellars" arrived from Jamaica yesterday, and as we saw her com ing in we thought that Captains Dillet and Cole would be sure to be on board. So we rushed down to the wharf to give them welcome. But alas! what a disappointment—they were not on board. They are coming in the "Kate Slurrup" which left Jamaica at about the same time as the "/Cellars". The"Zellars" came via Cuba, so has evidently out-footed the "Katie". We hope to see the brave Captains, and the rest of them at any time now. There won't be anv rum in the cargo, will there? 14th May, 191G.

Tuesday. June 15.1916
! he Russians seem to be
fairly on the warpath and
are. doing great work. Of
:ourse we have to make the
usual deductions for the op-
usra of the victors, but
after all discounts have been
made it i obvious that a
great drive is in progress. If
the Russians only have the
equipment and ammunition,
they will go far. The "aw-
ful Cossacks" are doing their
ire of the work, and thev
will keep the enemy on the
move Russia has certainly
put up most of the fighting,
and despite her retreat of
last year seems to be as fresh
a^ ever.

The meeting on Thursday
should be well attended and
a hearty response made in the
way of financial and other
assistance.
Dont forget that you can
spend a very pleasant evening
at the PATRIOTIC CON-
CERT to be given in S.Agnes
schoolroom tonight in aid of
the Bahamas Red Cross Fund
The Schooner "/Cellars"
arrived from Jamaica yester-
day, and as we saw her com
ing in we thought that Cap-
tains Dillet and Cole would
be sure to be on board. So
we rushed down to the wharf
to give them welcome. But
alas! what a disappoint-
mentthey were not on
board. They are coming in
the "Kate Slurrup" which
left Jamaica at about the
same time as the "/Cellars".
The"Zellars" came via Cuba,
so has evidently out-footed
the "Katie". We hope to
see the brave Captains, and
the rest of them at any time
now. There won't be anv
rum in the cargo, will there?

Dear Sir,
It is very gratifying to
Iknow that there are some
.persons among us who have
a thought beyond their own
petty sphere and are interest-
ed in the world beyond the
Bar of Nassau.
Perhaps you will not ob
ject to supplement the infor-
mation given by you last
evening, with the following
from The New York limes
of June 4th.
Yours

A cording In I he lni
Fedei nl census 11910) t lie
population of New York Ci-
ty was 4,766,883, which gives
to the City of New York a
population of 245,525 in ex-
cess of London's city proper,
or County of London. The
November census here last
Fall set down the New York
City population as 5,253,885.
The metropolitan area of
London, however, has a pop-
ulation of 7,253,963. And
all this is counted as "Lon-
don". Over against these
figures are set the population
Of New York City "with
Westchester and New Jersey
suburbs," which is about
7,500,000. But theie is no
definite standard ofcompari
son. The In ief article in
"The Times" last Winter, to
which you refer in your ques-
tion, sums the matter up :
In considering the actual
relative size of the metropolis
called London and the me
tropolis called New York we
must always bear in mind
that London spreads out in
every direction, and that al-
though the Metropolitan
Parliamentary Boroughs
combined do not comprise at
present more than 117 square
miles of territory against the
326 of Greater New York,
what is called the metropoli-
tan district of London com-
prises nearly 700 square miles
of territory. The metropoli-
tan district of New York in-
cludes all of nearby New
Jersey and much of West-
chester County, and its pop
illation is now probably lar
ger than the similar district
of London. But London is
London. The resident of
Tooting and Shenherd's Bush
gets his letters as a London
er, marked S. W. or \V., as
the case may be. Yonkers
and Hastings and Mount
Vernon and Newark and Eli-
zabeth are not New York,
Comparisons of the popula-
tion of London, with that of
\i w York are. however, vcrv
difficult. I ondon lias not
been standing still while New
Yoik has been growing li i^
likely, however* that the po
pnlalion of t! e two ritie*.
counting New York's outly
.ing district, politically but
- i --JJJJ
not socially or industrially
separated from it, is now
about equal, and perhaps
Greater New York captains
a few more inhabitants than
the Metripolitan Farliamen
tary Boroughs of London.

The 24th of May broke
hiight and char at this set -
(lenient, and at quite an 1 arly
hour the display of bunting
from the staff at the school
Room reminded the inhabi-
tants hn many miles around,
that the day v ould be cele-
brated.
At about 9.30 am. the
children assembled ill the
school yard, w here they went
through their drills and thm
man bed in prOCI ssion down
the street.
There was an entei lain
ment which started at 10.30,
which was so vei v largt Iv
attended that I he room was
filled to overflow ing /1 I
teacher. Mr.Thompson, gave
the opening address in w hi< h
he pointed out, verv forcibly
our duty to King and Em-
pire. He also explain* d wby
Em 1 re I >a\ 1- kept, and \^|At
lessons o| loyalty it shoif^l
teach us, 1 sp< cially .-it this
important crisis in our Na-
tion's History. There were
several other addresses from
the parents.
Among the patriotic songs
which the children sang were,
"The British Square, I h<
Soldiers Farewell" and
"What a dear old land is
England."
The occasion was further
enlivened by the playing of
of a number of lively pieces
by the School Fifeand Drum
Band. Pefieslum nts were
served to all present, and af-
ter (beers had been given for
the King, His Excellency the
Governor, and our brave
Soldiers at the front, the
singing of the National An-
th< m brought the entertain-
menl to a successful < lose.
