Since that time we and our Allies have secured accessions of territory to the Hellenic Kingdom, and we should be fools indeed if we did not use our moral rights and our material forces to set Greece once more in tha right path.

Mr. Alfred J. Burnside was the third son of the late the Hon. J |. Burnside who was for more than a half a -century, Surveyor General and Civil Engineer of this Colony besides being a member of its vaiious Public Boards. Mr. Alfred J. Burnside entered the Civil Service in the \ear 1856 as Clerk to the Board of Public Works when it was es (ablished. He was also Assis(ant Secretary to Governor Sii Alexander bannerman, Kt, from 1854 to 1857. He became Clerk of the Nassau Public Bank upon the reiiu men I of the late James K. Armhris'er, and continued to hold that oflire until us failure in 1K85, when be re tired into private life. Mr. Burnside was know as an ardent lover of Sport—Yachting, Boat racing, Horse racing. Polo, Cricket, Shooting and fishing, and he was naturally an authority on all matteisconnected therewith. He took a great interest in practical Ag riculiure up to the lime of hie fatal illness,although until then his free open air life and vigor ous constitution, had rendered h m immune to "the ills that human flesh is heir to." When "I lobby Horse Hallrace course resounded annualh with llie hoof beats of trained racers, his well knit and ath let if figure, well mounted and with perfect seat, clearing the course of unwary and eager, through otherwise orderly ilrae glers, was an accustomed and expected feature, which lent an additional zest to the classic and time honoured sport, and never did he exorcise his autocratic rule to the annoyance to the crowds to whom the days of "The Races" were "Red Letter" days.

Surpass Prussian in Daring Feats
MR. Philip Gibbs, a corres-
pondent with tl.e British
armies in ilia field, tends lo tlie
Daily Chronicle an interesting
article dealing with the British
supremacy in tlie air and its vi
tal illation to the operations on
the Somiiie. He writes :
"All through the battle of
Picardy most ol us have kept
glancing up into the sky across
the enemy's lines fram day t<>

"Now ami again when our
flying men are not out because
the clouds are lying low and it
n ;i \in I day,' as they call it, a
hostile machine sneaks through
the miM and dro|X n few bombs
and goes full speed hack again;
and more often, but not ver)
often, a flight of Prussians
will in ne in a gang through
a clear sky and attack one or
more of our scouts if they can
be sure f having all the odds
in tin ii favor. Behind their own
lines ihey are more hold (nnd
there is nothing wrong with
iheir courage as individual
fighters), and lie in wait in the
crossroads of 'lie air like mod
em Black Knights (with the
Iron Croa as their badge) In

intruders""*! however, with
any greni successand so pro
vide exciting combats for our
own I'.ii-'Jjts errant. Bui across
our '1^,'''' 'v venttne rarely.
i ^p R first week of
the batlTe, which began on July
i, the hostile machines were
invisible, nnd yet during all this
time of fighting we cannot go
up to the lines withoul seeing
o i, own aeroplanes flying above I
the shell fire in Prussian terri-
tory.

but they circle round as aloof as

it seems, from all this earthly

"Si far from prow ling on our
side ol the lines, these pilots
and obsei \ is make a dailv ha-
bit of goiuiiig f"i far journeys
into the enemy's /one, often as
far as Bopaume, which is a
ilo/eu miles beyond our own
trenches, and to places like
Martinpuich and Courceletle
and Piers A few daysago they
set Martinpuich on fire, and it
was still burning when they
hew (> er it again next day
"On July 28 four of ouracro
planes paid a surprise call on
Mons, the scene or our earliest
fighting two years ago, and re-
minded the enemy of our 'con
lemptihli- little army'of those
days by fl\ in^' low and dropping
bombs on the rolling stock in
the railway station and upon
sheds full of munitions, They
were leasurely in theircirclings
and stayed until fire had ex-
ploded at four different points
and much ammunition had

came home to dinner.
"Every day and all day long
they are out and about, across
the Prussian lines, observing
for our artillery and directing
the fire of our guns upon the
enemj 's batteries and otht 1 targ

work', so audacil USly and skil-
fully done, has given us an un-
doubted mastery of observation

Zhe tribune
Tuesday, September 5.1916
News that comes through from
Greece is confused, and it is a
little di.licult to ascertain from
the Radiogram* just what is
happening. But it teemsclear
that the Allies are quietly see-
ing to it that the present poiiti
Cal welter there shall not turn
oui to the advantage of then
antagonists. We read of the
Entente taking over interned
German and Austrian liners in
the Piraeus and of our represen
tatives demanding the control
ofpoMs and telegraphs and the
expulsion of pro German agents.
I he Literary Digest would call'
that "dragooning Greece", be
cause of its very marked Ger
man sympathies, sympathies
that are perhaps explah ,d by
the fact that it is published bj
a firm wliich holds the verv
Germ in looking names of Funk
and Wagnalli. Rut what does
Greece owe to Prussia and its
satellites? N .thing! If modern
Germany had been existent in
the days of nur King George the
fourth, the French, Russian and
nulls!, fleets would have been
held bnck from fighting (he bat
lie of Navnrino, which shattered
Ihe lurco Egyptian fleet and led
t<> the Independence of Greece.
It is amusing to note that the
British Admiral Sir Edward

H. M. S. Berwick came in

we cannot vouch for it.

In the Obituary noticesof the
late A. J. Burnside, but little
mention is made of his official
connection with the 3ahamas,
and as he was the only remain
iug link in that chain of neaily
2ooOflicials who filled positions
of more or less importance dat-
ing back to the Fifties, a brief
reference to bis Official career
will not be out of place.
Mr. Alfred J. Burnside was the
third son of the late the Hon.
J |. Burnside who was for more
than a half a -century, Surveyor
General and Civil Engineer of
this Colony besides being a
member of its vaiious Public
Boards.
Mr. Alfred J. Burnside enter-
ed the Civil Service in the \ear
1856 as Clerk to the Board of
Public Works when it was es
(ablished. He was also Assis(-
ant Secretary to Governor Sii
Alexander bannerman, Kt,
from 1854 to 1857. He became
Clerk of the Nassau Public Bank
upon the reiiu men I of the late
James K. Armhris'er, and con-
tinued to hold that oflire until
us failure in 1K85, when be re
tired into private life.
Mr. Burnside was know as an
ardent lover of SportYacht-
ing, Boat racing, Horse racing.
Polo, Cricket, Shooting and
fishing, and he was naturally
an authority on all matteiscon-
nected therewith. He took a
great interest in practical Ag
riculiure up to the lime of hie
fatal illness,although until then
his free open air life and vigor
ous constitution, had rendered
h m immune to "the ills that
human flesh is heir to."
When "I lobby Horse Hall-
race course resounded annualh
with llie hoof beats of trained
racers, his well knit and ath
let if figure, well mounted and
with perfect seat, clearing the
course of unwary and eager,
through otherwise orderly ilrae
glers, was an accustomed and
expected feature, which lent an
additional zest to the classic and
time honoured sport, and never
did he exorcise his autocratic
rule to the annoyance to the
crowds to whom the days of
"The Races" were "Red Letter"
days. But hi'S^^Srice and
occasion have both disappears
from mortal ken, and rtmair
as a memory only, and as ws
"ling clown the curtain" on the
well rememheied scenes of our
youth with which he was con-
nected, we reverently add,
