Zhe tribune SATURDAY. November 18th. ----%  — %  English papers just to band show that Germany's mighty effort to crush Koumania was viewed with great apprehension in Great LJritain. As Von Mackensen and Falkenhayn advanced, the hopes of Britishers sank. We trust that now the British journalists are plucking up heart ag;iin. Constantine in Athens had received news from his Imperial brother-in-law which caused him to foretell the early crushing of Roumania We hope he likes to witness the present evidence of Roumania's powers of resistance and recoyery. Russia has to be reckoned with in this matter. She cannot allow her enemies to overrun her little neighbour, as thai would expose the left Hank of hei armies 10 great danger. She is geographically as well as morally at the hack of Koumania and is able, we firmly believe, to doj a good deal more than save her from being even for a time over whelmed. Until the Saloni ka forces can make their power fully felt Russia should he able to see to it that Ron mania shall confidently bid defiance lo her foes, Theo. P.

I do not think I have mistaken in usine the term "her" to the Bahamas: for, as a daughter is to her moth er, so is the Bahamas to that Great Empire; as she is proud of helping her mother, so are we (Bahamians) proud of helping our mother country. Think of the departure of our War Contingents ; has not tinincident added a new page in our histoij ? It is the time when many persons feel melancholy ; but it is not a time for sadness; still I must conclude that some amiable beings, having the thoughts that they shall never more behold each other, must be sad. The statement that the departure of the War Contingent has added a new page to our history is not an exaggeration. The facts it records lead or may lead to much wider final events than may appear at first. The fact that the Bahamas lias sent hundreds of her sons, drawn from all classes, to light for the Flag. shoulder to shoulder with men from all parts of the Empire is an important and striking event. \. We must not allow ourselvi to think of this incident as ing a "signboard" to invite for eigners to the "Paradise of the winter Such a view is selfish anderroneous.This new fact has a Spiritual and moral signifJC Hi ce that we should never forget. This is the first time the B hamas has sent ler sons to take their places in the struggles of the Empire. Is this not a step showing her equality with the other parts ? This is the time for the ambitious young men of good edu(ation who are physically In, to go for a comnuss 1 'His MajeStj s Army." and to help let fall William of Germany and iiikingdom, Let us hope that when the war shall come to its finale and the Allies are victorious w. Shall all be joyful. Not only that the war is over, but also because our boys have helped to Tight it. 1 Down with the German**'carvings, Don't let them rule the world; Keep freedom's banner waving, And be it e'er unfurled.

The Tribune. Nassau, Saturday November 18,1916 N O T I C E This is to inform the public that in future B. V. D. UNDERWEAR will be sold in the Bahamas by the undersigned ONLY Wm. HILTON, 260 Bay Street. tec T. S. HILTON, The Park Store. Nov. 18, 1916 (Continued from ist page ) story is a very fine one. The New Zealanders held a most advanced position, with an exposed left flank. The enemy threw all the strength he could muster against them, only to find the line immoveable and to recoil from every attack with very heavy losses. Before one point of their front the New Zealanders counted 350 German dead. FINE CONTRIBUTION TO VICTORY While these things are going on the Germans also attacked again and again the English troops just to the left. Before the weight of the first attack our men gave way temporarily and were forced back to the next line in their rear. Coming again, they recaptured their S ositions splendidly. By this the few Zealanders, on their right, had made those gains of which I spoke as being of value to the general situation, especially by the capture of a very strong position where two trenches cut at right angels across the German third line, halfway towards the village of Eaucourt l'Abbaye. The obliteration of this position was great assistan ce to our troops on the left, who then came on and made the gain of which the communique speaks on the front of a mile, pushing forward so as to wipe out the interspace, or bay, between Flers and Martinpuich, which had left those points as exposed salients, and giving us an almost even front from a point on th north of the latter village to a line some 500 yards to the north of Flers. The whol thing—the opera tion of the two forces together — was a movement of no small magnitude, and it solidifies our positions along that part of our new line. Meanwhile there was another bay between our forward posts between Martinpuich andCour cellette. The cleaning out of this is the final operation spoken of in communique The Ger mans were entrenched—besides holding numerous lines of ordinary trenches and minor positions—in a formidable stronghold a* a junction of two trench lines a little to the east of the Bapaume road. The clearing of it seems to have been a gallant and dashing operation, and on that side of Martinpuich our line is now as consecutive to Courcelette as it is the other way to Flers. The ground won by Zealanders, while not one of the crucial positions on the ridge, included the last edge of the plateau in that direction, and the Germans showed by the desperation with which they tried to force us back how much importance they attached to it. I am sorry to have to report that, in their desperation, there is no doubt that they made use of their old discreditable trick of hoisting a white flag, as if to surrender, and then firing on our men. Such incidents I never report unless they are well established, and then only with reluctance ; but the case is too well authenticated to be ignored. A more cheering detail must have been the spec tacle of one New Zealand ser geant bringing in four German officers, captives to his own bow and spear. — "The Times. Surgery In War. SIR AKEOGH ON OUR ORGANIZATION(FROM OUR MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT.) Sir Alfred Keogh hnsaccomp lished so much in regard to the health of our Armies that any expression of opinion by him is bound to command attention. When that expression deals with surgical organization in war it carries the highest au thority, for the British people have yet to learn how much they owe to his inspiration, en tiuuiasm, and courage. Surgical organization in war, according to Sir Alfred Keogh, who has contributed an aiticle on the subject to the British Journal of Surgery, a reprint of which has been forwarded to us, falls into two great divisions— prevention of disease and col lection, removal, and care of the sick and wounded. Under the latter head a high tribute ispaid to our surgeons. The tendency to specializa tion which is so marked a f ea ture of this war, is emphasized. Sir Alfred says of it that it is inevitable and is suggestive of changes in the future:— Tint system has not been, in the first place, designed nor es tabhshed of set purpose ; it has evolved, and the advantages have been so apparent that it has been encouraged. It has reached its highest development, perhaps at Aldershot. The importance of orthopae dies is next dealt with. Orthopae dies is that branch of surgery which deals with the stiff and disabled man and returns him supple and capable. It is a sub ject of which medical men were woefully ignorant until lately. At this hour its impoitance is evident to all. Sir Alfred concludes a sugges tive article with the following statement, to which the atten tion of all those interested in medical education may be drawn: — If the logic of events has obliged us to display atendenc \ to specialization of work it can only be because the necessity of some such process has been for ced upo.i us. The truth is that without it full efficiency cannot be attained, and I am myself convinced that the more the or gani/ation of hospitals into special departments is pursued the greater will be the degree of efficiency reached. It would appear to be the case that in seeking to avoid a narrow specialism in hospital organization we have failed in our profession to establish sufficient differentiation of functions, and that we demand from the gene ral surgeon a morezextensive knowledge than he can nowadays possess. Experience has shown and continues to show that in such departments* re search is encouraged and know ledge acquired and diffused more readily than could otherwise have been the case. One cannot avoid an uncomfortable feeling that if hospitals in civil life had been organized on such a plan a higher efficiency would have been manifest at the outset. Finally, the all important question is put—Will the medical profession in the future "de vote more consideration than ii has hitherto given to its relation to the public and to public departments ? For everything depends upon this". ^a These words are vital ; they concern the public no less than the doctors. It has been found possible to prevent disease in a mighty Army— hitherto the impossible—the^ime is come when we must demand equal efficiency in our civil lite.—The Times. J. C.

Already the ground has

While there is no such dazz-
ling news as there was at this
time a week ago, none the less
we have made gains which in
the agnrefjate are of consider-
able importance, and the opera-
tions involved have been alto
nether creditable to our troops.
The official communique has al-
ready mentioned(1) that the
New Zealanders have repulsed
several heavy counter-attiicks;
(2) that we have pushed forwaid
between flers and Martinpuich
on a front <>f about a mile ; and
(3^ that we have made another
advance to the east of Cource-
lette. If you look at the map
you will see how these various
I more meats are related.
After every large advance we
are inevitably left with an un-
even front, and a period follow>

This week's consignment per "Kotonia" sums up
210 cases containing 6656 pairs of boots and shoes all,

harmony. In the grand attack
of a week ago we seized the three
great objectives of Flers, Cour-
celette, and Martinpuich. We
fought through each of these
villages, and established our
dried new position in all cases well on
the further side of them. Each
of them formed more or less of a
salient in our line, the front
sagging back-between them
where in the open ground be-
tween, the enemy still clung to
larger or smaller areas of the
maze of trench and shell hole
defences with which the whole
region is covered. It has been
necessary to clear out these in
terspaces and bring the whole
line up to a sufficiently level
front. This is what has now
been achieved.
The enemy has striven despe-
rately to prevent us from attain-
ing our end. While, as In-sup-
posed, our advanced positions
must be still weak, he has
thrown counterattack after
counter-attack against them. 1
have spoken of these in occa-
sional sentences, and especially
of the attacks which he has
made against the New Zealand-
ers who held the front before and
to the north west of flers, which
was undoubtedly the most ex
posed point of our new line.
Nothing that he could do, how
ever, could make the New Zea-
landers let go ot what they had
won. They not only hold the
farthest point which they gained
but have materially helped the
general situation by gaining
new ground on the left.
METHODICAL ADVANCE.
In former dispatches I have
told of their original advance,
how they swept up to the vil-
lage of Flers, over successive
lines of lunches, and tlien.leav
ing the English troops on their
right to take care of the village
itself, passed on along the west
side of it, clearing out some
strong German positions to the
west and north of the place and
then settling down in the most
advanced line which had been
apj anted them to take. So

was the main German third line
before and to the left of the vil
lage -another 500 yards, was
carried by the Rifles before 11,
and they were in their advanced
positions beyond the village,8oo
yards farther on, by a few mi-
nutes after noon.
The first, and a very formid,
able, counter attack was deliver

when four German
were thrown against them from
the line of a sunken road and a
trench running approximately
parallel to their left front. The
attack was beaten off with very-
heavy loss to the enemy. Not
only was no ground lost, but on
the next day the Wellingtons
pushed forward and Hung the
enemy out of the 'rench from
which he had attacked on the

from the evening of the 151I1 to

English papers just to band
show that Germany's mighty
effort to crush Koumania was
viewed with great apprehen-
sion in Great LJritain. As Von
Mackensen and Falkenhayn
advanced, the hopes of Bri-
tishers sank. We trust that
now the British journalists
are plucking up heart ag;iin.
Constantine in Athens had
received news from his Im-
perial brother-in-law which
caused him to foretell the
early crushing of Roumania
We hope he likes to witness
the present evidence of Rou-
mania's powers of resistance
and recoyery. Russia has to
be reckoned with in this mat-
ter. She cannot allow her
enemies to overrun her little
neighbour, as thai would ex-
pose the left Hank of hei arm-
ies 10 great danger. She is
geographically as well as
morally at the hack of Kou-
mania and is able, we firmly
believe, to doj a good deal
more than save her from be-
ing even for a time over

ka forces can make their pow-
er fully felt Russia should he

THE BAHAMAS
AND THE
WAR-
The Bahamas, as a part o
British Empire is willingly try*
ingtodoor doing her part in
the present Struggle. I do not
think I have mistaken in usine
the term "her" to the Bahamas:
for, as a daughter is to her moth
er, so is the Bahamas to that
Great Empire; as she is proud
of helping her mother, so are we
(Bahamians) proud of helping
our mother country.
Think of the departure of our
War Contingents ; has not tin-
incident added a new page in
our histoij ? It is the time when
many persons feel melancholy ;
but it is not a time for sadness;
still I must conclude that some
amiable beings, having the
thoughts that they shall never
more behold each other, must be
sad.
The statement that the depar-
ture of the War Contingent has
added a new page to our history
is not an exaggeration. The
facts it records lead or may lead
to much wider final events than
may appear at first. The fact
that the Bahamas lias sent hun-
dreds of her sons, drawn from
all classes, to light for the Flag.
shoulder to shoulder with men
from all parts of the Empire is
an important and striking event.
\. We must not allow ourselvi
to think of this incident as
ing a "signboard" to invite for
eigners to the "Paradise of the
winter Such a view is selfish
anderroneous.This new fact has
a Spiritual and moral signifJC Hi
ce that we should never forget.
This is the first time the B
hamas has sent ler sons to take
their places in the struggles of
the Empire. Is this not a step
showing her equality with the
other parts ?
This is the time for the am-
bitious young men of good edu-
(ation who are physically In,
to go for a comnuss.......1 'His
MajeStj s Army." and to help
let fall William of Germany and
iii- kingdom,
Let us hope that when the
war shall come to its finale and
the Allies are victorious w.
Shall all be joyful. Not only
that the war is over, but also
because our boys have helped to
Tight it. 1
Down with the German**'carv-
ings,
Don't let them rule the world;
Keep freedom's banner waving,
And be it e'er unfurled.

The Enemies of the
Cross
A Sermon for the twenty-third
Sunday after Trinity.
Philippians III. 18. f r many
.. cur, 0) whom J havt t id you
ojttn, VOttping, that they art the ene-
mies l the Cross of Christ.
The Cross was the instrument
of public execution used by the
ancient Romans. To be cruci
iii-cl was not only to suffer a
painful death but i" endure the
^reati -1 ; our. 1 ien as now
puhhc execution by banging on
a gallows is regarded as a
sli.uncli.il death. Vet Si. Paul
s;o s 1 iai |ie glories in the cross
of Clu is;, and it lias become to
Chris'ians the symbol of tri
iiinpli.
I. What docs tin- Apostle
mean by the encnu j the Cross
of Christ ?
The enemies of the Cross arc
of four kinds.
1. Those who d< spise Christ
and wh 1 di-u\ that I hs death
on the ( miss was ol am value.
Such peopli existi (I in Si Paul's
day. 1'hey opposed the preach
in^; of tic crucified and nsen
Jesus by sneers at the Christian
religion. In every city they
hindered the woik of the Apos
ties.
2. Those who actively perse
cuted the Christians, and by
threats 01 persuasions induced
them to abandon the Faith,
We have such persecutors to-
day.
j. Those who offered substi
tutes (or the religion ol the
Gospel, men full of what St.
Paul calls "worldly wisdom"
just as todaj all kinds of newly
invented religions are offered in
the place of the ancient Faith
of Christ's Holy Church,
4. Those who professed to
follow the teaching of the
Church but all the lime lived
careless, or even wicked lives,
indulging in sins of the lle-i,',^
such aidrunkeuoes and immor-^
ality, of which the Vpostle sayi
such shall not inherit the king-
dom of C
II. What was St. Paul's atti-
tude iowar I-- these en miei of *
the Cross ?
First, he constantly warned
his c inverts against them. /
have I .' 1 ;,. j. j-|ie
faithful succesi......I the Apos-
tle in the ministry ..1 ffcn
must do the same. Whether
I ,:'' 'ike it or ii'.t he mi,st
ith all au-
thority, as St Paul told timo
tin to do.
Secondly, the teaching and
conduct ol these nieunV; of the

so that he writes / turn tell you
weeping.
St. Paul wept over them even
as his Divine Mas), u, ,,, ()Vef
tm- sinful leiusalem winch had
rejected Him. Backsliding
Christians do not realise the
SOI low whiCfl they cause lo
those who watch for tin irsouls.
III. In the wise Followingtba
text St. Paul gOCS on to say
what shall be the punishment
of those who (,p,,Se Jesus
Christ and hinder His truth
\v hose end is destruction, he says
J' "'"' fin is death
And he'expla.rs that while thev
are ashamed to confess Christ
and while they revile this relV
gion ol the Cross, thev all the
time glory in thrir shame, for
their love is centered on earthly
things, thus they plunge into
vice, such as gluttony and in-
temperate living, which are de-
structive both of body and soul-
or they put their trust in out!

have no true spiritual religion

(Continued from ist page )
story is a very fine one. The
New Zealanders held a most ad-
vanced position, with an expos-
ed left flank. The enemy threw
all the strength he could muster
against them, only to find the
line immoveable and to recoil
from every attack with very
heavy losses. Before one point of
their front the New Zealanders
counted 350 German dead.
Fine Contribution
to Victory
While these things are going
on the Germans also attacked
again and again the English
troops just to the left. Before
the weight of the first attack
our men gave way temporarily
and were forced back to the
next line in their rear. Coming
again, they recaptured their
Sositions splendidly. By this the
few Zealanders, on their right,
had made those gains of which
I spoke as being of value to the
general situation, especially by
the capture of a very strong
position where two trenches cut
at right angels across the Ger-
man third line, halfway to-
wards the village of Eaucourt
l'Abbaye. The obliteration of
this position was great assistan
ce to our troops on the left, who
then came on and made the gain
of which the communique speaks
on the front of a mile, pushing
forward so as to wipe out the
interspace, or bay, between Flers
and Martinpuich, which had
left those points as exposed sal-
ients, and giving us an almost
even front from a point on th
north of the latter village to a
line some 500 yards to the north
of Flers.
The whol thingthe opera
tion of the two forces together
was a movement of no small
magnitude, and it solidifies our
positions along that part of our
new line.
Meanwhile there was another
bay between our forward posts
between Martinpuich andCour
cellette. The cleaning out of
this is the final operation spok-
en of in communique The Ger
mans were entrenchedbesides
holding numerous lines of or-
dinary trenches and minor posi-
tionsin a formidable strong-
hold a* a junction of two tren-
ch lines a little to the east of the
Bapaume road. The clearing of
it seems to have been a gallant
and dashing operation, and on
that side of Martinpuich our
line is now as consecutive to
Courcelette as it is the other
way to Flers.
The ground won by Zealand-
ers, while not one of the crucial
positions on the ridge, included
the last edge of the plateau in
that direction, and the Germans
showed by the desperation with
which they tried to force us back
how much importance they at-
tached to it. I am sorry to have
to report that, in their despera-
tion, there is no doubt that they
made use of their old discredit-
able trick of hoisting a white
flag, as if to surrender, and then
firing on our men. Such inci-
dents I never report unless they
are well established, and then
only with reluctance ; but the
case is too well authenticated
to be ignored. A more cheering
detail must have been the spec
tacle of one New Zealand ser
geant bringing in four German
officers, captives to his own bow
and spear.
"The Times.
Surgery In War.
Sir A- Keogh on our
Organization-
(from our medical corres-
pondent.)
Sir Alfred Keogh hnsaccomp
lished so much in regard to the
health of our Armies that any
expression of opinion by him is
bound to command attention.
When that expression deals
with surgical organization in
war it carries the highest au
thority, for the British people
have yet to learn how much
they owe to his inspiration, en
tiuuiasm, and courage.
Surgical organization in war,
according to Sir Alfred Keogh,
who has contributed an aiticle
on the subject to the British
Journal of Surgery, a reprint of
which has been forwarded to us,
falls into two great divisions
prevention of disease and col
lection, removal, and care of the
sick and wounded. Under the
latter head a high tribute ispaid
to our surgeons.
The tendency to specializa
tion which is so marked a fea
ture of this war, is emphasized.
Sir Alfred says of it that it is
inevitable and is suggestive of
changes in the future:
Tint system has not been, in
the first place, designed nor es
tabhshed of set purpose ; it has
evolved, and the advantages
have been so apparent that it has
been encouraged. It has reached
its highest development, perhaps
at Aldershot.
The importance of orthopae
dies is next dealt with. Orthopae
dies is that branch of surgery
which deals with the stiff and
disabled man and returns him
supple and capable. It is a sub
ject of which medical men were
woefully ignorant until lately.
At this hour its impoitance is
evident to all.
Sir Alfred concludes a sugges
tive article with the following
statement, to which the atten
tion of all those interested in
medical education may be
drawn:
If the logic of events has
obliged us to display atendenc \
to specialization of work it can
only be because the necessity of
some such process has been for
ced upo.i us. The truth is that
without it full efficiency cannot
be attained, and I am myself
convinced that the more the or
gani/ation of hospitals into
special departments is pursued
the greater will be the degree of
efficiency reached.
It would appear to be the case
that in seeking to avoid a nar-
row specialism in hospital or-
ganization we have failed in our
profession to establish sufficient
differentiation of functions, and
that we demand from the gene
ral
surgeon a morezextensive
knowledge than he can nowa-
days possess. Experience has
shown and continues to show
that in such departments* re
search is encouraged and know
ledge acquired and diffused more
readily than could otherwise
have been the case. One cannot
avoid an uncomfortable feeling
that if hospitals in civil life had
been organized on such a plan a
higher efficiency would have
been manifest at the outset.
Finally, the all important
question is putWill the medi-
cal profession in the future "de
vote more consideration than ii
has hitherto given to its relation
to the public and to public de-
partments ? For everything de-
pends upon this".
^a
These words are vital ; they
concern the public no less than
the doctors. It has been found
possible to prevent disease in a
mighty Armyhitherto the im-
possiblethe^ime is come when
we must demand equal efficien-
cy in our civil lite.The Times.
