Zhc tribune Thursday Nov. i6th 1916. The Balkan situation is reassuring. Roumania is taking good care of herself and at the same time helping to deplete the man power of the enemy. But how much better oil we would hnve been with Jjteece heartily on our side It is said that one reason why we are not making a more sweeping and rapid advance from Salonika is that at pre sent Salonika is being pre prepared for it by an enormous extension of facilities for shipping. To maintain a b:g army during an offensive needs a base with capacity enough for all purposes of advance. But if Greece were fighting on our side we would have all her means of transport at ouj free disposal. Verily that pro-German Con• BTantiae has been worth much to our enemies! And when we think of hisabandonment of Serbia, we feel that the loss of his throne would be but a small punishment for him. But the act ion of Greece will only delay the crushing of Bulgaria and the overthrew of Austria and Turkey. Meanwhile the Allies can steadily depress the morale of the German army by keeping up persistent pressure on her lines at all points. —:o.— The Police Band will not give a Concert this evening.

Over Seas Club in the Bahamas. Nassau, N. P. The Editor of "The Tribune" Sir: Will you please publish the following correction to the Over-Seas Tobacco and Nassau, November 15th, 1916. The Editor "The Tribune" Sir: In our community there are numbers of admirers of the lamented Lord Kitchener who, doubtless, would be glad to con tribute to a memorial to the great soldier, 1 therefore enclose the following extracts from The Clarion of Belize, Honduras, and I am wondering how is it that, so far as I know, this proposition has been submitted to us by the Lord Mayor of London ; are we so insignificant that we have been ignored, or is it considered that we have done all thai may be expected of us, or has it been suppressed in the interest of other appeals. Yours truly SYMPATHISER KITCHENER NATIONAL MEMORIALThe Editor CLARION: — I shall be oblidged if you will publish the attached copies of letters in next issue, (1) copy of the Lord Mayor's letter and (2) copy of the Explanatory Statement. I have been honoured with a request from his Excellency the Governor to undertake the duties of Hony. heasurer and Secretary to the above Fund and to collect subscriptions. It is a Fund that should ap peal to all peoples of the Bri tisli Empire and I feel sure the people of British Honduras will gladly come forward and help the Fund in the same generous way they have subscribed to the other Funds, for the relief of the stricken in the War which, as every right minded person knows, has been forced on the Empire and is being waged to defend and secure the principals of Freedom and Justice. Subscriptions, however small, will be thankfully received and may either be sent to me direct or paid into the Royal Bank of Canada for credit to the^P&d Kitchener's National Memorial Fund. Yours faithfully, G. E. GRABIM^T. (Continued on first page) Telegrams November 15th, iqi6. By Associated Press, 13th. Once again the German line in France has been hard hit. Starting an offensive uinning from the south ern bank of the Ancrc River north ward over a front of about five miles from St. Pierie to the north of Serre the British have captured the towns of Beaumont llamel and St. I'ierre and first and second line trenches at vai ious points. Between three and five thousand men were made prisoners. The Germans apparently offered but slight resistance although their positions were extremely heavily fortified. A maximun gain to a depth of one mile over the five mile front was made by the British ami hard fight ing continues, to the north of Serre. The new drive apparently has as its objective the straightening out of the British line northward from the region of San across the Ancre and pushing forward the Bdtish left wing toward Schit le Petit the junction poii 1 >f the Arras Bapaurne and Air. is Miiaumont railroads. Kxcepting in Roumanian and Macedonian theatres then lias been Unit fighting of great importance 011 any of the fronts. In the Transylvanian Alps region Bucharest admits that the Roumanian* in the Alt River section have been compelled to yield giound to o.p \uitro Hungarians, hut asseit Hi.it King Ferdinands men have held their own against attacks in the Campalung district. Both Vienns tnd Berlin record further advances all along this front, having taken the towns of Diotr and Asufiler to the north of the Cyergyo Mountains, and Candesti, northwest of L'ampalung. In Dobiudjn, according to Petrograd advices, Von Mackensens troops are still in redeat though Berlin asserts 1 li • t the Teutonic Allies have deleated tli^s/ii-so Roumanians who HCC coming down the west Lank of (be Danube Ottawa.

B The break between General Hushes and Premier Borden and other members of the government resulted from differences over questions of policy and details of administration. Since the beginning of the war there have been many sucli differences on questions of military management but until recently it is said they have been adjusted generally by allowing General Hughes to carry out his plans. Lately the friction has increased. It is understood there has been a growing disposition on the part of the premier and cabinet to insist upon their own plan as against those of General Hughes. One of the points over which a difference arose was the supplying of the Canadian forces with British army rifles. General Hughes, It is report ed, advocated instead the use of a Canadian weapon. Some time ago General Hughes returned fiom a three months visit to England with a plan to have a Canadian war council organized in England with a deputy minister of militia at its head. The Canadian government however held that with more than 2 >o.ooo Canadian troops in the trenches in France, or in training in England there should be an oveiseas minister of militia which would gieately depiive General Hughes of his authority. —:o: — 16th November, 1916.

Among tlie disabled officers in the Annies raised by Lord Kitchener arc many men of slender means, while those who may be regarded as fairly well of] may peed help in cases where expensive measures of treatment are involved. The Council of the Fund rea lise that the proper place for the disabled officer or man is his own home. To get home is nisi THE London Directory Published Annually E NABLES ti.i.lers throughout the World to communicate direct with English MANUFACTUKKRS & DEALERS in each class of goods.

In many cases of disablement, or however persistent med ical or surgical treatment, special nursing, is needed to re lieve suffering, to prolong life, or to make life more endurable and to confer some lasting bene fit on the invalid. This often involves a far greater outlay than the disabled man of limited means can afford. It will therefore be the first pur pose of the Fund to help officers: ana men alike, and to provide not only medical aid but to sup ply apparatus, appliances, ex pensive nursing requisites, such as water beds, and to help gene rally in making the life of the disabled man as free from worry and discomfort as is possible. There will be many cases which could not with advantage be treated in the homes of the patients, such as the case of a man totally paralysed, who can not receive adequate care in any but a well to do home. He needs a special bedstead if he is to be moved daily into the fresh air, and he needs also cost ly appliances and a constant service of both male and female nurses. Me needs electrical and other measures of treatment, massage, etc., which can only be adequately supplied in a home or institution which will form the basis of the Fund's ef forts. To such a home will be at tached an efficient residential and visiting staff. The disabled man will be assured of the best possible treatment that the country can provide, and if there is any hope o f recoveiy, that hope is more likely to be realised in such a special estab Jishment as is contemplated. — The "Clarion"'.

Zhc tribune
Thursday Nov. i6th 1916.
The Balkan situation is re-
assuring. Roumania is tak-
ing good care of herself and
at the same time helping to
deplete the man power of the
enemy. But how much better
oil we would hnve been with
Jjteece heartily on our side !
It is said that one reason why
we are not making a more
sweeping and rapid advance
from Salonika is that at pre
sent Salonika is being pre
prepared for it by an enor-
mous extension of facilities
for shipping. To maintain a
b:g army during an offensive
needs a base with capacity
enough for all purposes of
advance. But if Greece were
fighting on our side we
would have all her means of
transport at ouj free disposal.
Verily that pro-German Con-
BTantiae has been worth much
to our enemies! And when
we think of hisabandonment
of Serbia, we feel that the
loss of his throne would be
but a small punishment for
him. But the act ion of Greece
will only delay the crushing
of Bulgaria and the over-
threw of Austria and Turkey.
Meanwhile the Allies can
steadily depress the morale of
the German army by keeping
up persistent pressure on her
lines at all points.

The Editor of
"The Tribune"
Sir:
Will you please publish
the following correction to
the Over-Seas Tobacco and
Nassau,
November 15th, 1916.
The Editor "The Tribune"
Sir:
In our community there are
numbers of admirers of the la-
mented Lord Kitchener who,
doubtless, would be glad to con
tribute to a memorial to the
great soldier, 1 therefore enclose
the following extracts from The
Clarion of Belize, Honduras, and
I am wondering how is it that,
so far as I know, this proposition
has been submitted to us by the
Lord Mayor of London ; are we
so insignificant that we have
been ignored, or is it considered
that we have done all thai may
be expected of us, or has it been
suppressed in the interest of
other appeals.
Yours truly
SYMPATHISER
Kitchener National
Memorial-
The Editor Clarion: I shall
be oblidged if you will publish
the attached copies of letters in
next issue, (1) copy of the Lord
Mayor's letter and (2) copy of
the Explanatory Statement.
I have been honoured with a
request from his Excellency the
Governor to undertake the du-
ties of Hony. heasurer and
Secretary to the above Fund
and to collect subscriptions.
It is a Fund that should ap
peal to all peoples of the Bri
tisli Empire and I feel sure the
people of British Honduras will
gladly come forward and help
the Fund in the same generous
way they have subscribed to the
other Funds, for the relief of the
stricken in the War which, as
every right minded person
knows, has been forced on the
Empire and is being waged to
defend and secure the principals
of Freedom and Justice.
Subscriptions, however small,
will be thankfully received and
may either be sent to me direct
or paid into the Royal Bank of
Canada for credit to the^P&d
Kitchener's National Memorial
Fund.
Yours faithfully,
G. E. Grabim^t.

Once again the German line in
France has been hard hit. Starting
an offensive uinning from the south
ern bank of the Ancrc River north
ward over a front of about five
miles from St. Pierie to the north
of Serre the British have captured
the towns of Beaumont llamel and
St. I'ierre and first and second line
trenches at vai ious points. Between
three and five thousand men were
made prisoners.
The Germans apparently offered
but slight resistance although their
positions were extremely heavily
fortified.
A maximun gain to a depth of one
mile over the five mile front was
made by the British ami hard fight
ing continues, to the north of Serre.
The new drive apparently has as
its objective the straightening out
of the British line northward from
the region of San across the Ancre
and pushing forward the Bdtish
left wing toward Schit le Petit the
junction poii 1 >f the Arras Bap-
aurne and Air.is Miiaumont rail-
roads.

The break between General Hush-
es and Premier Borden and other
members of the government result-
ed from differences over questions
of policy and details of adminis-
tration. Since the beginning of the
war there have been many sucli
differences on questions of military
management but until recently it
is said they have been adjusted
generally by allowing General
Hughes to carry out his plans.
Lately the friction has increased.
It is understood there has been a
growing disposition on the part of
the premier and cabinet to insist
upon their own plan as against
those of General Hughes. One of
the points over which a difference
arose was the supplying of the
Canadian forces with British army
rifles. General Hughes, It is report
ed, advocated instead the use of a
Canadian weapon.
Some time ago General Hughes
returned fiom a three months visit
to England with a plan to have a
Canadian war council organized in
England with a deputy minister of
militia at its head. The Canadian
government however held that
with more than 2 >o.ooo Canadian
troops in the trenches in France,
or in training in England there
should be an oveiseas minister of
militia which would gieately de-
piive General Hughes of his au-
thority.

Among tlie disabled officers

may be regarded as fairly well

the disabled officer or man is his

first Wish, and tO help him in with the goods they ship, and the Colo-
this direction will be a promt
nent object of the Fund. In
many cases of disablement,
or however persistent med
ical or surgical treatment,
special nursing, is needed to re
lieve suffering, to prolong life,
or to make life more endurable
and to confer some lasting bene
fit on the invalid.
This often involves a far
greater outlay than the disabled
man of limited means can afford.
It will therefore be the first pur
pose of the Fund to help officers:
ana men alike, and to provide
not only medical aid but to sup
ply apparatus, appliances, ex
pensive nursing requisites, such
as water beds, and to help gene
rally in making the life of the
disabled man as free from worry
and discomfort as is possible.
There will be many cases
which could not with advantage
be treated in the homes of the
patients, such as the case of a
man totally paralysed, who can
not receive adequate care in any
but a well to do home.
He needs a special bedstead if
he is to be moved daily into the
fresh air, and he needs also cost
ly appliances and a constant
service of both male and female
nurses. Me needs electrical and
other measures of treatment,
massage, etc., which can only
be adequately supplied in a
home or institution which will
form the basis of the Fund's ef
forts.
To such a home will be at
tached an efficient residential
and visiting staff. The disabled
man will be assured of the best
possible treatment that the
country can provide, and if
there is any hope of recoveiy,
that hope is more likely to be
realised in such a special estab
Jishment as is contemplated.
