Cumberland was shelled on
Wednesday night by the Liberal
guns for the first time since the
announcement that there was a
possibility of a provincial election
during the year 1915, The fire
from the Liberal guns, which are
the largest they have In their
possession, was very tame, the
range not being very accurate.
It did not seem to have very much
effect upon the large audience
that visited the Ilo-Ilo Theatre

CORRESPONDENCE.
" As a Christian Nation.",
To the Editor of Jfcljr Salmii-cr.
Dear Mr. Editor,—The sentiments expressed below, by Dr
Lyttleton, headmaster of Eton
College, in an address delivered
by him in London, on March 26th
last, are, in my judgment, most
timely, and deserve most careful
-consideration. Kindly give them
space in the Islander.
Sincerely yours,
Wm. Elliott.
"If Britain is going to act as a
Christian nation after the war,
she is bound to apply the principle
of Christian charity on a scale to
which she has never risen yet. It
is necessary so to act as to give a
reasonable chance of 60.000,000
Germans being saved from their
own vindictiveness.   There is no
other question in war comparable
with that for greatness.     The
obligation   is so to act that the
German hatred for England shall
Li* removed.    Unless this is done
the war will have been fought in
vain, and all the noble lives will
have lieen squandered.   If it was
felt that someone must act on the
principle   of trust in order that
others should understand what
was meant, there was  certainly
no nation that was called on to
do so much as England.     It has
been proposed by men of weight
that when England said the Kiel
Canal should be internationalized
she should have coupled it  with
the promise that she would internationalize Gibraltar.   I have put
that   proposal   before   men    of
weight   and   learning,  and   the
answer is lhat it cannot be expected that the people of England
would weaken the position of the
empire.   Is that to be sufficient?
\i we intend to hold fast to everything we have gained in the past,
some of them possessions gained
by very questionable means, and
to say we aie not going to pa.t
with a single inch of territory orl
a single privilege, all 1 can say is
that we are abandoning the prin-
< iple of Christianity and taking
onee more em* stand on the pi in-.
ciple of competition."

Trench Weapon.
The catapult, hurling missiles by means of a spring, much on the principle of a
boy's sling shot, is a modern weapon of war. The device was the
artillery of the ancients and was used with effect even up to the
middle ages. The French find that in close trench work the catapult of the kind shown in this picture beats field artillery. When
the picture from which this drawing was made was taken the German trenches were only thirty yards away, and the machine hurled
small bombs and hand grenades down upon the foe. With the two
lines so close, field guns behind the French lines would cause
almost as much damage to them as to the Germans.
