Zhe tribune Thursday October 12, 1916 We are convinced that a very critical stage of the War is approaching. We say this because we see Germans being employed in great numbers on all fronts. The Russians are finding their task harder in Galicia and adjacent places because the proportion of Germans against them is higher than before. Evidently Von Mackensen has a large number of German troops under him in the Dobrudja while the French and ourselves are putting an awful strain on them in the West. Yes, the Allies are fore ing Germany to draw on her man power to a frightful extent and a break will have to come. She will have to pay later on for the mighty but exhausting effort she is mak ing now. —:o:— ALIVE NASSAUVIANSThe deeadenca of trade with us, does not quench the energy of some of our business men, on the contrary, there is an unprece.ited alertness which speaks well fur those men at the Iront, and though there a re predominating causes which prevent them from helping "the cause"' in a direct way, they are placing themselves in a position to furnish the means to attain the desired and inevitable end which will usher in the dawn of a universal peace. Three well known men fore most in the business section of this community, have embarked in a new enterprise Htid we heartily wish them every, and a large measure of success. The owners of three steamships have transferred their six ty four shares in each to the active combination who doubtless have been stirred into a greater activity than is usually evident among our tortoises, and we hail with unalloyed de light the cheering evidence that there is life in the old island yet. The ultimate object in view lias not been disclosed, nor is it desirable in any game to lay one's cards on the table, unless one is cock sure of one's hand, but from our knowledge of the new steamship owners, derived from an insight into their business career, we venture to pre diet that their well laid plans will not gang agley. — :o:— It will be noticed among our advertisements that tht Board of Agriculture is now prepared to spray citrus Orchards or Trees that may have been attacked by the Blue Gray fly.

Telegrams October nth 1916. Newport, Rhode Island, 9th: —The wholesale raid on foreign shipping south of Nantucktt Lightship Sunday was the work of one submarine according to reports from American Naval officers. Rear Admiral Gleaves commanding the torpedo-boat flotilla which did such remark ably speedy rescue work said tonight that reports of all his officers agree that to the best of their observations one raider only was concerned. This boat was presumably the U. 53, which called at Newport Saturday. Admiral Greaves said that he could easily understand tht positive statements of the captain of the Nantucket lightship and of sailors of the torpedoed ships that more than one sub marine was concerned. The U. boat, he said, was very fast and appeared to have been handled cleverly. It was easy, he pointed out, for her to disappear on one side of a ship and then show up unexpectly at another point. Doubtless she had submerged and re-apptared often enough to mislead any but a kten professional observer and to create the impression that more than one vessel was operating. Washington, 9:—So much depends upon President Wilson's decision regaiding thr^eiman submarine action in theWeslern Atlantic and there art so many possibilities for complications if the U. boat campaign continues that officials here decline to attempt any statement of the American governments attitude although state department officials are convinced that there has been no violation of international law in the attacks off Nantucket. They realize that prolongation of operations in wateis adjacent to the United H|ptes may lead up to situations out of which serious diplomatic issues might arise. Berlin, 9:—The French and British lost 130 aeroplanes last month on the western front as compared with 21 lost by the Germans. London, 9th: —The official communication from British Headquarters in France reads: In the neighbourhood of Le Transyloy a party of the enemy was caught in the open by our artillery and dispersed. As the result of a local operation we gained ground north of Stuff Redoubt inflicting serious loss on tht enemy and taking more than aoo prisoners including 8 officers. Early this morning we successfully entered the enemies trenches south of Arras. Southeast of Souchez a Strong enemy party rushed a crater fronting our lines but was immediately ejected with heavy casualties. London, 9th:On the battle fronts in Europe Transylvania and Macedonia continue forihe moment the centers of great interest. According to Berlin the Rou manians in Transylvania are re treating along the whole line. The Teutonic Allies have recaptured the town of Toerzburg southeast of Kronstadt which is within seven miles of the Roumanian border. Considerable hard fighting has taken place in the region west of Lutsk and further south in Ga licia but the results are some what beclouded by Reason of the contradictory reports of the Petrograd and Berlin war offi ces. Petrograd says the Russians at some points in Volhyniasuc ceeded in entering Austro Ger man positions east of Vladimir Volynski but Berlin reports that

Letters from the
Front.
Mid-day at Night-
An officer writing home from
France says:
We liveexciting in timesnow,
and all that I experienced be-
fore is as nothing as compared
with this. It is quite impossible
for you at home to get any con
ception of what is meant by the
newspaper phrase "Terrific
bombarment along the whole
front." The effect both to the
ear and eye is such that the
man is not born who could com-
mit to paper and adequate des
cription of it.
If you try to imagine all the
most terrific thunder that ever
rent tho air and try to concen-
trate it into one place and one
period of an hour or so, you do
not even then begin to get an
idea of the noise which begins
to shake both heaven and earth
while a mental picture of all
the most vivid lightening you
have ever seen, cmpled with
Brock's most magnificent dis-
play of fireworks will not t"ll
you the half of the effect of the
"strafes" to the eye. The other
night I was on duty at a cer-
tain point while a final half
hour's concentrated bombard-
ment raged, and I relized, as I
have neer done btfore what
modern waifare means.
In front of me were field guns
which cast forth their projectiles
in one continuous stream, while
from behind and at each side of

The noiie was stupendous, the
crack and boom of the guns in
front and the. terrific reports
from the guns behind, coupled
with the shriek of the shells as
they passed over our heads,
made one great pandemonium
of noise, and in the superlative
degree at that.
The sight of it all was just a
gigantic as the noi6e ; the whole
front was a blaze of light. The
bursting of our own shells and
those which the Germans were
putting over, together with the
glut of star shells which both
sides were sending tip, made up
a sight which w ill, to me at any

of a bombardment like this is
the way in which the country

An Officer's Exploit
Of the original captuie of the

many details such as an onlook-

could not see. Perhaps the most
striking story was that of one
of our officers, who practically
cleared out a stretch of the
trench by himself.
It seems that in our advance
there was a gap in the line
which left 50 yardi or so of the
enemy trench unassailed. Over
such shell-torn, ridge and fur-
row ground, and under such fire
as was going on, this might
well happen. So this stretch of
some 50 yards of trench was
still occupied by Germans
while all the rest on either side
was in our hands. The officer
in question, seeing what the

the whole stretch they surrend

It is always the other officers

Zhe tribune
Thursday October 12, 1916
We are convinced that a
very critical stage of the War
is approaching. We say this
because we see Germans be-
ing employed in great num-
bers on all fronts. The Rus-
sians are finding their task
harder in Galicia and adja-
cent places because the pro-
portion of Germans against
them is higher than before.
Evidently Von Mackensen
has a large number of Ger-
man troops under him in the
Dobrudja while the French
and ourselves are putting an
awful strain on them in the
West. Yes, the Allies are fore
ing Germany to draw on her
man power to a frightful ex-
tent and a break will have to
come. She will have to pay
later on for the mighty but
exhausting effort she is mak
ing now.
:o:
Alive Nassauvians-
The deeadenca of trade with
us, does not quench the energy
of some of our business men, on
the contrary, there is an unpre-
ce.ited alertness which speaks
well fur those men at the Iront,
and though there a re predomina-
ting causes which prevent them
from helping "the cause"' in a
direct way, they are placing
themselves in a position to furn-
ish the means to attain the
desired and inevitable end
which will usher in the dawn
of a universal peace.
Three well known men fore
most in the business section
of this community, have em-
barked in a new enterprise Htid
we heartily wish them every,
and a large measure of success.
The owners of three steam-
ships have transferred their six
ty four shares in each to the
active combination who doubt-
less have been stirred into a
greater activity than is usually
evident among our tortoises,
and we hail with unalloyed de
light the cheering evidence
that there is life in the old is-
land yet.
The ultimate object in view
lias not been disclosed, nor is it
desirable in any game to lay
one's cards on the table, unless
one is cock sure of one's hand,
but from our knowledge of the
new steamship owners, derived
from an insight into their busi-
ness career, we venture to pre
diet that their well laid plans
will not gang agley.
:o:
It will be noticed among our
advertisements that tht Board
of Agriculture is now prepared
to spray citrus Orchards or
Trees that may have been at-
tacked by the Blue Gray fly.
Many fruit growers will welcome
such an opportunity as this.
The Zion Sunday School
Festival came off in beauti-
ful weather on Tuesday. A
long programme was well
and rapidly rendered, after
which a happy adjournment
was made to the Barrack
Grounds, where the Police
Band was in much-appreciat-
ed attendance.
Owing to the lossbv fire
of the Ward Line S.S.-'Antilla"

ably speedy rescue work said
tonight that reports of all his
officers agree that to the best of
their observations one raider
only was concerned.
This boat was presumably the
U. 53, which called at Newport
Saturday.
Admiral Greaves said that he
could easily understand tht
positive statements of the cap-
tain of the Nantucket lightship
and of sailors of the torpedoed
ships that more than one sub
marine was concerned. The U.
boat, he said, was very fast and
appeared to have been handled
cleverly. It was easy, he point-
ed out, for her to disappear on
one side of a ship and then show
up unexpectly at another point.
Doubtless she had submerged
and re-apptared often enough
to mislead any but a kten pro-
fessional observer and to create
the impression that more than
one vessel was operating.
Washington, 9:So much de-
pends upon President Wilson's
decision regaiding thr^eiman
submarine action in theWeslern
Atlantic and there art so many
possibilities for complications
if the U. boat campaign contin-
ues that officials here decline to
attempt any statement of the
American governments attitude
although state department offi-
cials are convinced that there
has been no violation of inter-
national law in the attacks off
Nantucket.
They realize that prolonga-
tion of operations in wateis ad-
jacent to the United H|ptes may
lead up to situations out of
which serious diplomatic issues
might arise.
Berlin, 9:The French and
British lost 130 aeroplanes last
month on the western front as
compared with 21 lost by the
Germans.
London, 9th: The official
communication from British
Headquarters in France reads:
In the neighbourhood of Le
Transyloy a party of the enemy
was caught in the open by our
artillery and dispersed. As the
result of a local operation we
gained ground north of Stuff
Redoubt inflicting serious loss
on tht enemy and taking more
than aoo prisoners including 8
officers. Early this morning we
successfully entered the enemies
trenches south of Arras. South-
east of Souchez a Strong enemy
party rushed a crater fronting
our lines but was immediately
ejected with heavy casualties.
London, 9th:- On the battle
fronts in Europe Transylvania
and Macedonia continue forihe
moment the centers of great in-
terest.
According to Berlin the Rou
manians in Transylvania are re
treating along the whole line.
The Teutonic Allies have re-
captured the town of Toerz-
burg southeast of Kronstadt
which is within seven miles
of the Roumanian border.
Considerable hard fighting has
taken place in the region west
of Lutsk and further south in Ga
licia but the results are some
what beclouded by Reason of
the contradictory reports of the
Petrograd and Berlin war offi
ces.
Petrograd says the Russians
at some points in Volhyniasuc
ceeded in entering Austro Ger
man positions east of Vladimir
Volynski but Berlin reports that


ihtsra

thes?"attacks failed with san
guinary losses to the Russians.
Violent reciprocal bombard
ments are in progress in the
Somme region. Infantry attacks
also have taken place but no
important gains for either side
have been chronicled.

ing purpose", said Premier
Asquith addresiingCommont

" This war cannot be allowed
to end in some patchd-up,
precarious and dishonouring
compromise masquarading
under the name of peace. No
one desire? to prolong for a
single moment the tragic
spectacle of bloodshed and
destruction, but we owe it to
those who have given their
lives that their supreme sacri
fices shall not have been un
availing".

cyelone swept St. Thomas Monday
night and yesterday morning with
disastrous results. Almost every
building in the city whs damaged
and some destroyed. I he steam-

loss.
Athens.The Entente Allies
have again offered to assist
Greece in case she enters the
war but it is understood no new
concession has been made.
Berlin:A bill for a new war
credit of twelve billion marks
will shortly be submitted to the
Reichstag. The c.edit granted
to June, 1916, totals fifty two
billion marks.

Comparatively few of those who are using glasses have the
Kino their eyes require, the kind which gives the best vision, the
most comfort, and which preserve the sight and keep it normal

not had the careful and thorough examination bv a qualified
specialist which is most important and necessarv when the best
results ar desired. As the accomodative power of the eye grad
uaiiy weakens as one grows older it becomes necessary to make
a change of glasses every three or four years and many make a
efeat mistake in continuing the use of unsuitable glasses, it is
one of the principal causes of cataract and other serious eye
troubles. J
