Ube tribune Thursday, Nov. 2nd, igi6 Some American papers have a way of criticising all the belligerent Powers because they all say that peace cannot be until one side is beaten. In this connection Mr. Lloyd George's emphatic warning to neutrals to let us alone as we mean to fight till Germany is overcome is as much condemned as recent warlike utterances by the German Chancellor. But we and our Allies know that for the sake of future peace we must crush the Teuton military power now. The Russian, French and British Governments have known of this military menace for years and have tried, by concessions and by Hague Conferences, to eliminate the dan ger. When war was immine t, Sir Edward Grey, backed heartily by France and Russia, worked with marvellous and unsleeping energy and skill to avert it.

The money that was granted for public works at Clarence Town for 1916,that was the grants of lo -'5 iT'o of it being for (leaning and repairing Canals. The Canals are connected to the ponds where we clean Sisal and should be looked after. However, very little has been done so far. If they were more properly attended to, theponflfwould have more water which would enable the planters tp clean their sisal much In tW. A lot ol stuff is cleaned offt of the si^al which remains in the ponds if the Canals were dean the ebb tides would do the rest. A lot is.said about the badly cleaned Sisal which cannot be helped under existing conditions. The planters should really be considered. The money has been spent and no one seems to be able to see what it has been spent for. I have been trying for a long time to protejCt and encourage this industry but I am getting dispondenl now as the planters don't seem to receive sufficient attention and encouragemi nt.

with a covering skirt, but without one. There seems to he a very general revolt against skirts that encumber their wearer. Whether or not the movement will extend far enough to do away with the use of skirts alto gether is a matter of doubt. Most people with gord taste would regard the passing of the skirt with regret, for by no, stretch of imagination can trous ers be regarded as graceful garments. It seems possible, how-! ever, that hereafter women will feel free to discard skirts when they see fit, while retaining them as a distinctly feminine garment obligatory on certain occasions.! Alreadv many working girls in Great nritain, who wear trousers during the day, decline to put on skirts after their work is done. What the Letters Shew (Hoston News Bureau.) A nation at war can divide her people into four parts — those who are always ready to fight, those who can be stimulated to fight, those who will not fight, and those who will run away or surrender. Germany, with casualties approaching 4,000,000, has lost the stronger part of her fighting material and the numbers at the bottom do not count except in the census. In the Verdun fighting this year, the French have gathered thousands of letters from the German dead. A volume of them have been photograped and pub lished, and every letter is one of despair. Is it possible that Germany has awakened to this situation ? It is not conceivable that Germany can today corsider a sur render. This i? what the out side world demands of Germany —surrender of militarism, pos sibly of the Hohenzollerns, and certainly of the territory which she has invaded under no right of either God or man FOR SALE A fine American Mare.

Some American papers
have a way of criticising all
the belligerent Powers be-
cause they all say that peace
cannot be until one side is
beaten. In this connection
Mr. Lloyd George's emphatic
warning to neutrals to let us
alone as we mean to fight till
Germany is overcome is as
much condemned as recent
warlike utterances by the
German Chancellor. But we
and our Allies know that for
the sake of future peace we
must crush the Teuton mili-
tary power now. The Rus-
sian, French and British
Governments have known of
this military menace for years
and have tried, by conces-
sions and by Hague Confer-
ences, to eliminate the dan
ger. When war was immi-
ne t, Sir Edward Grey, back-
ed heartily by France and
Russia, worked with marvel-
lous and unsleeping en-
ergy and skill to avert it. Is
it any wonder thai now the
enemy has chosen war we
i>y.

NOTES FROM GRAND BAHAMA.
Dr. Knight visited this Is-
land in September. His visit
was much Hppreciatedaslots
of the people at that time
needed Medical aid. If a Doc-
tor'would call at least twice
a year, much good could be
done.
The Act ng Inspector of
Schools visited Eight Mile
Rocks on loth October. The
school was inspected the
same day.
"Our Boys"at the front are
not forgotten. Mr. A. L.
Hepburn has sent off to two
of his friends, e.g. Corporals
Harold Bosi oinbeand Origin
Mason, each a Silver Cigar-
ette Cave with their names
engraved on the back of it.

The I'dit r of The Tribune"
Dear Sir:
I noted what you
said about time and space, so
I will make my story short:
I just want to give the
public an idea of the state of
things up here. The money
that was granted for public
works at Clarence Town for
1916,that was the grants of
lo-'5 iT'o of it being for
(leaning and repairing Can-
als. The Canals are connect-
ed to the ponds where we
clean Sisal and should be
looked after. However, very
little has been done so far.
If they were more properly
attended to, theponflfwould
have more water which would
enable the planters tp clean
their sisal much In tW. A lot
ol stuff is cleaned offt of the
si^al which remains in the
ponds if the Canals were
dean the ebb tides would do
the rest. A lot is.said about
the badly cleaned Sisal which
cannot be helped under exist-
ing conditions. The planters
should really be considered.
The money has been spent
and no one seems to be able
to see what it has been spent
for. I have been trying for a
long time to protejCt and en-
courage this industry but I
am getting dispondenl now
as the planters don't seem to
receive sufficient attention
and encouragemi nt.
Thanking you for space,
I remain,
Yours truly,
B. W. TURNQUF.SI

with a covering skirt, but with-
out one. There seems to he a
very general revolt against skirts
that encumber their wearer.
Whether or not the movement
will extend far enough to do
away with the use of skirts alto
gether is a matter of doubt.
Most people with gord taste
would regard the passing of the
skirt with regret, for by no,
stretch of imagination can trous
ers be regarded as graceful gar-
ments. It seems possible, how-!
ever, that hereafter women will
feel free to discard skirts when
they see fit, while retaining them
as a distinctly feminine garment
obligatory on certain occasions.!
Alreadv many working girls in
Great nritain, who wear trous-
ers during the day, decline to
put on skirts after their work is
done.
What the Letters
Shew
(Hoston News Bureau.)
A nation at war can divide
her people into four parts those
who are always ready to fight,
those who can be stimulated to
fight, those who will not fight,
and those who will run away or
surrender.
Germany, with casualties ap-
proaching 4,000,000, has lost
the stronger part of her fighting
material and the numbers at the
bottom do not count except in
the census.
In the Verdun fighting this
year, the French have gathered
thousands of letters from the
German dead. A volume of them
have been photograped and pub
lished, and every letter is one of
despair.
Is it possible that Germany
has awakened to this situation ?
It is not conceivable that Ger-
many can today corsider a sur
render. This i? what the out
side world demands of Germany
surrender of militarism, pos
sibly of the Hohenzollerns, and
certainly of the territory which
she has invaded under no right
of either God or man
