A d in i r a I Sir Cyprian Bridge, in a repoi t on merch • iiit -hipping li sses, gives the following stal'Mi. in oi total 1 iss( 5 to shipping from t he beginning of the war to March 23: I he loss to British strain shipping, says the report, is 1 less than four per cent of the total number ot vessels under the British flag, and slightly over six per eptdf their t tal tonnage. In further comment, Admir al Bridge deta ils the amount of merchant shipping built in France and Great Britain since the beginning of the war, and shi iw S thai the war es have virtually been made goi id 1 lien by.' "In 1915," s ivs the re er mo: e than a year of the war, t he ste un shipping of Great Britain increased 88 vessels and 344,000 tons." Italy and Russia also show an increase, while France is short only 12,500 tons. "It is therefore clear," saysthereport, "that thepresent shortage of tonnage is due, not to the action of sub marines, but to the great re quirements of the military and naval forces The latest published statement of these show that they are demand ing 3.100 merchant vessels!" Presiding at the annual in eting of the Liverpool mid I .ondon War R isks Insurance Association at Liverpool list month Bruce Isrhav said thai through war pi 1 ils the association had lost 62 vessels of 357.8 ',85 tons gross, and though marine perils 21 vessels of 10 J.97Q tons dross; but 75 new vessels of 5 1 tons gross had entered in the period. Thus after 18 months of war there had been a decrease of only eight in the number 1 >f vessels afloat be longing to members of the associal ion, while the ton nage had increased by 76,231 tons gr< Journal of Commerce — :o: Hi 11-ay:• Nassau's public wireless station is again in ration I hen s 1 report current this moi n ing that the British I >re idm ught "hli/nb.-th" had en ged five iermans and su led m sinking two I crippling the remainder.

London:—Petrograd despatches indicate that the Russian efforts to capture Czernowitz are fast showing results. North of the city they have cut the railway and are now lighting on the outskirts of the town itself. The fall of the city is momentarily expi cted. I'ai is: —In the infantry fighting about Verdun the Germans on Monday used up an entire German division in twelve at tempts to storm one position. The offensive seems to have stopped due to the exhaustion of the German fortes. Violent bombardov nts continue at Vaux, and the French captured a small position near Soissons.

An Englishman's Experience
In Poland.
ANEW and unusual phrase
of war experience, with
many features of value, is pie-
denied in a book entitled "In
The Russian Ranks" by John
Morse, which gives an account
o| how an Englishman tra\ell-
ing in Germany escaped at the
beginning of the war into Rus-
sian Poland, and,"aroused by
the brutalities be witnessed, en-
tered the Russian Army and
fought with it for almost a year.
BusineM and tlie desire for a
holiday h id taken Mr. Morse to
Germany in July, ioi4, and the
last week of the month found
him in a small German town a
few miles from the Russian
frontier Everywhere as lie
went from city to city lie found
the towns crowded with soldiers
the country roadl lined with
cavalry and artillery, battalions
having their full complement
of men marching <>r entraining
or being moved in long lines of
cars. Being much interested in
matters martial and loving, he
Bays, the sight of armed men,
he watched all these proceed
ings with attention. When he
asked for the reason of all this
activity he was told that the
troops were being assembled for
the Autumn manoeuvres. No

whom he w i o lying, assured
him en Jub 1 I lil war u onlrl
be declared tlic follow
Sunday agnUisI Ihe Russians
and the French, ihnl ihe Ger-
mans would be joined by the
Austrian*, and that tire German
Army would be in I'aris in a
month. This officer and another
continued their friendly attitude
toward him and finally helped
him across the frontier in the
night of Aug. i, Mr. Morsede
clans ol his own knowll i
that the German Army was
mobilized, "so far as the Rus
sian frontier was concerned,"
more than a week before the
order for its mobilisation was
giv( n by th Kaiser.
In the Russian province of
Kalisz lie found German troops
burning, pillaging, murdering
the inhabitants, devastating the
land several days before war was
declared, and he wasable tosave
his own oeck only by the great
est care. He witnessed so many
fiendish atrocities that his in-
dignation waxed hot and in
stead of trying to make his way
to Riga and thence to England
he asked for a rille as soon as he
fell in with Russian troops,and
thereafter took part in the fight
mg in Russian Poland and East
Prussia through the first Fall
and Winter of the war. He was
taken prisoner by the Germans,
from whom, with some others,
be managed to escape, and, in
capacitated by reason of frozen
feet and other injuries, finally
made his way, through many
adventures, to England.
\i < ustnmed as the world has

Mr. Mm i bonk adds still more

r|( i (K of wanton cruelty, bar
barity, and bestial ruthlessness
upon inoffensive and helpless
men, women, and children as
turn one ill with loathing.
Whoever needs more proofs ns
to German methods of warfare
will find them in plenty in Mr.
Morse's account of bis observa
tions and experience s What he
saw turned him from a friendly
and admiring visitor of their
land to B stein and mercil- ss
judge whose heart is filled with
hate and contempt. There are
also many interesting accounts
of the operations and life of the
Russian troops, of their methods
of warfare, and their character
istics As he had spent eight
years in the English Army and
had been fill bis life a devoted
student of military matters, he
writes with expert knowledge.
Up to the time when he crossed
the frontier into Poland,lie says,
"I loved wai and all that per

with an ineradicable hate and
disgust, and hope never again

THE REAL CULPRIT.
The crown prince had been
so busy that he hadn't had
time to get together with his
father and have a confiden-
tial chat. But one evening
when there was a lull in the
808-centimeter guns, they
managed to get a few mo-
ments off. The crown prince
turned to his father and said :
"Dad, thete is something 1
have been wanting to ask
you for a long time. Is Uncle
George really responsible for
this scrap?"
"No, my son."
"Well, did Cousin Nick
have anything to do with it?"
"Not at all."
"Possibly you did ?"
"No, sir."
"Then, would you mind
telling me who it was?*'
The anointed one|

naval losses! We cannot

ates somewhat. We wiin
what HTS naval looses
lid have been if he had
his "Kiel Canal Fleet"
rol the sens as our Grand
Fleet has done. If he,or
wewant the actual figures
of our naval losses, we must
apply to the Admiraltyand
THEY wont tell. No, no
"Willie," you must guess
again. We publish the fol-

concerns our mercantile Ma-

MERCHANT SHIPPING LOSSES.
A d in i r a I Sir Cyprian
Bridge, in a repoi t on merch
iiit -hipping li sses, gives the
following stal'Mi. in oi total
1 iss( 5 to shipping from t he
beginning of the war to
March 23:
I he loss to British strain
shipping, says the report, is
1 less than four per cent of the
total number ot vessels under
the British flag, and slightly
over six per eptdf their t tal
tonnage.
In further comment, Admir
al Bridge deta ils the amount
of merchant shipping built in
France and Great Britain
since the beginning of the
war, and shi iw S thai the war
es have virtually been
made goi id 1 lien by.'
"In 1915," s ivs the re
er mo: e than a year of
the war, t he ste un shipping
of Great Britain increased 88
vessels and 344,000 tons."
Italy and Russia also show
an increase, while France is
short only 12,500 tons.
"It is therefore clear,"
saysthereport, "that thepres-
ent shortage of tonnage is
due, not to the action of sub
marines, but to the great re
quirements of the military
and naval forces The latest
published statement of these
show that they are demand
ing 3.100 merchant vessels!"
Presiding at the annual
in eting of the Liverpool mid
I .ondon War R isks Insurance
Association at Liverpool
list month Bruce Isrhav said
thai through war pi 1 ils the
association had lost 62 vessels
of 357.8 ',85 tons gross, and
though marine perils 21 ves-
sels of 10 J.97Q tons dross; but
75 new vessels of 5 1 tons
gross had entered in the pe-
riod. Thus after 18 months
of war there had been a de-
crease of only eight in the
number 1 >f vessels afloat be
longing to members of the
associal ion, while the ton
nage had increased by 76,231
tons gr<

F mid The whole programme
was ol a I'.itiiotic character,
with the exception of a
song "The Magpie said come
in"sung try Mr. Walter Beth-
el, which fairly brought the
House down. The Choruses
sung by a number of S. Ag
nes Children were capitally
rendered and the words could
be followed throughout. The
round-"Hot cross Buns"' was
skilfully interpreted, and the
Bahamian Recruiting Song
"Fall in, ve brave fall in",
was sung with much gusto.
The Police Band gave
their services and helped con-
siderably towards the suc-

-t the Russians probably in
an effort to divert the atten-

in the second week of their


drive against the Austro-
Hungarians and Germans
from the Pi ipet Marsh South*
ward to Bukovvina.
On all sectors of the North-
Urn line the Russians hive
successfully withstood the
German onslaughts and driv-
en the attacking forces back,
Thevhaveeven gained ground
against them North of the
Tirol Marsh Southwest of
Riga, says Petrogrnd.
In Southwest Russia in the
region of Lutsk fresh adv.in-
against the Austro-Hun-
garians are reported by the
Russian war offii e as likewise
is the case across the border
through East Galicia.
In the Southern part of this
regii ai the Russians are near
ing Czernowitz, capital of
the Austrian crownland of
bukowin i.
A1111 i'i';h the Austi ians
at numerous points are vigor
ously counter attacking, the
Russi ins have given ground
only near Bodulintze North
of Buczacz in Galicia where
the Austrians were reinforc-
ed by German troops.
The Russians captured here
by the Teutonic forces mini
ber 1300. The number of
prisoners t 1 ion by the Rus
sians since their offensive has
grown to more than 114 000.

June 15th, 1916.
London:Petrograd des-
patches indicate that the
Russian efforts to capture
Czernowitz are fast showing
results. North of the city they
have cut the railway and are
now lighting on the outskirts
of the town itself. The fall
of the city is momentarily
expi cted.
I'ai is: In the infantry
fighting about Verdun the
Germans on Monday used up
an entire German division in
twelve at tempts to storm one
position. The offensive seems
to have stopped due to the
exhaustion of the German
fortes.
Violent bombardov nts
continue at Vaux, and the
French captured a small
position near Soissons.
Bei lin: It is estimated
that the British naval losses
since the beginning of the
war have been 130 vessels
with gross tonnage of 600.-
000.
Washington:President
Wilson with the cabinet
inarched on foot at the head
of a great Preparedness pa-
rade of 75.000 persons in
celebration of I'Tag Day. The
president left the parade at
the reviewing stand, to re-
view the parade.
St. Louis: The Democra-
ts Convention opened at
noon The battle cry is
"Wilson, Marshall and vic-
tory." A speech was deliver-
ed by Martin Glynn, former
Governor of New York, ho

the Slav armies across the
Dniester River where they
have captured the towns of
Zalezczyky and Horodenka
and are pressing toward the
Pruth River and the Rukow
