German Trade In West Africa.
\
THE announcement that a
very large number of Ger-
man properties in Nigeria are to
be sold by auction in London at
the end of this month furnishes
a surprising revelation of the
degree to which German traders
had penetrated one of tlie young
est of West African possessions.
The properties to be offered for
sale include extensive ware
houses, factories, and wharves,
many of which are situated on
the rivers and railways far in
the interior. There had, of
course, been German traders on
the Nigerian coast long before
the British (lag was carried up
to '.he borders of the Sahara.
The biggest German firm in the
Protectorate began business at
Lagos in the middle of last cen
tury, and several other enemy
firms had existed for more than
twenty five years. A few facts
will show how largely Germans
were participating in Nigerian
trade before the outbreak of
war. It has been estimated that
they had absorbed more than
25 per cent, of the total trade of
the Protectorate, and the cap!
tal they employed is supposed
to represent a sum of 1,500,
000. In addition In these land
properties there were fifty one
(ierman steamers engaged in the
West African trade, includ-
ing Nigera, their total
tonnage being 133,000 tons.
Nigerian trade has developed
very rapidly since, the opening
of the northern territories The

By 1913 the volume had increns

In that year the value of the ex

Food Supplies.
THE two main subjects beinp
discussed by the man in the
street at the present moment are
food supplies anil recruiting.
Food prices continue t<> ris".
Potatoes, which were about j
a ton 111 1914, are now about 1 2

Zbe tribune
THURSDAY. November 2 Vd.
It was with the greatest
satisfaction that we publish
ed the welcome news in our
yesterday's issue that there is
every probability that Nas-
sau is to have a Southern Ser
vice this season.
The value of such a service
cannot be estimated in terms
of the actual results, whether
in the number of passengers
carried, or the quantity of
freight handled. What real-
ly matters is the fact that a
Southern Service will assure
a regular mail service, pro-
vide an alternative route for
passengers whether coming
to, or leaving Nassau, and,
last, but not least, will ensure
a certain means of getting
our tomatoes and other fruits
on the American market.
Exporters of tomatoes suf-
fered great loss and inconve-
nience last season because
North bound steamers could
not, or would not wait to
take their shipments. The
"Miami" handled a good deal
of this class of freight, and in
this way helped to a certain
extent. This season, no doubt
will see a great improvement
in this respect, as the Ward
Line will be handling both
of the routes, and will be
able better to arrange ship-
ments so that our produce
may reach the market irj
good condition. 1 his season,
however, we shall miss the
familiar sight of the "Miami"
lying at the wharf, as the
steamers visiting the port
will not be able tocomeover
the liar. That is a great
drawback, and one that will
only be re.nedied when we see
our way clear to accomplish
ing the Herculean task of
making our harbour capable
of accomodating vessels of
greater draught. When will
that be ? Not just yet.

We are asked to announce
that (here will he a meeting of
the Secretaries of the Red Cross
Guild at Government House on
Monday next at 4.30 pm. It is

Via K War Summary, 21st:The
Uisiro German forces pushing
eastward through Southwest
Roumania have captured the
town of Drojova and the Rou-
manians who are retreating
down tlie Jiul Valley and at
other points from the Transyl
vauian Alps region apparently
are in danger of being cut off.
Troops of King Ferdinand in
the Jiul Valley have reached
FilHash but here they are out
Hanked by the Teutons at Cra
jova and without the aid of a
railway to convey them east-
ward seemingly must be caught
on the Plains of Wallachia by
the enemy forces which are
closing in on them from the
North and tin- South.
A IdVd peril to the Roumani
am in this region is noted 111 the
Continued advance of the Teu
tnis on the Alt Valley, south of
Rotbentluun Pass where Petro
grad admits the Roumanians
are retiring slowly.
An advance eastward along
the railway 35 miles to Slatina
would give the Austro-Germans
this important railroad town
and compel the retreating Rou
maniana in the Alt Valley also
to take to the roads in an en
deavour to escape in the direc
tion of Bucharest.
Little fighting is reported from
any of the other fronts. In the
Soinnie region a heavy fog bung
over the entire battle front
Tuesday and nothing but artil
lery duels took place.
Bombardments and minor in
fan fry actions have occurred 0
the Italian front.
In Macedonia according to
Paris the Allies troops to the
north of Monastir still are press
ins the German Bulgarian.
West of Monastir the Italians
have repulsed counter attacks
delivered by the Teutonic Allies.
An Unofficial despatch from
Saloniki says that the Serbians
have captured seven villa- es
west and north of Monastir,
taken many prisoners and field
guns, machine guns and war
material.
Berlin reports the sinking by
h German submarine in the
English Channel of a French
guardship and seven merchant
men. The French Ministry den
ies that any French war vessel
brtS been sunk there.

ces in Southwestern Roumania
