Another German outrage against humanity, comparable in some respects with the shooting of Edith Cavell, is revealed in their official announcement of the execution, after Court-martial at Bruges, of Captain Charles Fryatt, of the captured Great Eastern Railway Company's steamer Brussels, on the ground that he "tried to ram U33" in March last.

The German official message is as follows --

On Thursday, at Bruges, before the court-martial of the Marine Corps, the trial took place of Captain Charles Fryatt, of the British steamer Brussels, which was brought in as a prize. The accused was condemned to death because, although he was not a member of a combatant force, he made an attempt, on the afternoon of March 28th, to ram the German submarine U33 near Maas Lightship. The accused, as well as the first officer and the chief engineer of the steamer, received at the time from the British Admiralty a gold watch as a reward for his brave conduct on that occasion, and his action was mentioned with praise in the House of Commons. On the occasion in question, disregarding the U boat's signal to stop and show his national flag, he turned at a critical moment at high speed on the submarine, which escaped the steamer by a few metres only by immediately diving. He confessed that in so doing he had acted in accordance with the instructions of the Admiralty. The sentence was confirmed yesterday r. Thursday) afternoon, and carried out by shooting. One of the many nefarious "franc-tireur" proceedings of the British merchant marine against our war vessels has thus found a belated, but merited, expiation.

Shot as a Franc-Tireur.

The official German reply to Viscount Grey says the German war tribunal sentenced Captain Fryatt to death because he had performed an act of war against German sea forces, although he did not belong to the armed forces of his country. He was not deliberately shot in cold blood without due consideration, as the British Government asserts, but he was shot as a franc-tireur after calm consideration and thorough investigation. As martial law on land protects the soldier against assassination by threatening the offender with the penalty of death, so it protects the members of the sea forces against assassination at sea. Germany will continue to use this law of warfare in order to save her submarine crews from becoming the victims of franc-tireurs at sea.

Pension for the Widow.

The Board of Trade have decided to grant to Mrs. Fryatt a pension of 100 per year in addition to the Government scheme pension. The Great Eastern Railway Company have granted her an annuity of 250 per annum.


Mr. Asquith's Declaration.

In answer to Sir Edward Carson, Mr. Asquith, in Parliament on Monday evening, said -- I deeply regret to say that it appears to be true that Captain Fryatt has been murdered by the Germans. His [--?--] Government have heard with [--?--] [--?--] indignation of this atrocious crime against the law of nations and the usages of war. (Cheers.) Coming, as it does, contemporaneously with the lawless cruelty towards the population of Lille and other occupied districts of France -- (cheers) -- it shows that the German High Command, under the stress of military defeat, have renewed their policy of terrorism. (Cheers.) It is impossible, of course, to conjecture to what further atrocities they may proceed. His Majesty's Government, therefore, desire to repeat emphatically their resolve that such crimes shall not, if they can help it, go unpunished. (Loud cheers.) When the time arrives they are determined to bring to justice the criminals, whoever they may be and whatever station they may hold. (Loud cheers,) In such cases as these the authors of the system under which such crimes are committed may well be the most guilty of all. (Cheers.) The question of what immediate action can be taken is engaging the earnest consideration of the Government, and I hope very soon to announce to the House of Commons what we will do. (Cheers.)

Sir E. Carson -- May I ask the Prime Minister whether, in considering the motion, he will consult his colleagues as to whether the time has not come when some Act should be passed by this House that will show that at the end of the war the German people will not be admitted within the comity of nations until these crimes have been expiated. (Cheers.)

Mr. Asquith said he would bear the suggestion in mind.

Parcels containing chocolates, cakes, fruit, cigarettes, tobacco, and other useful articles were handed in as the worshippers entered the church, and such was the generosity o the people that not only did each soldier receive a parcel, but a large consignment was sent direct to the Royal Hospital and to the Ulster Volunteer Hospital. The service was conducted by the Rev. J. W. Gibson who spoke in appropriate terms of the sacrifices of the soldiers in the cause of patriotism. The soldiers at the conclusion of the service were entertained to tea.

We regret to announce the death of Mr, William M'Loughlin, of Kilmacaran, Shercock, Co. Cavan, who passed away on 4th inst., at the advanced age of eighty-five years. The deceased, who was a successful farmer, will be much missed in the district in which he resided. He was respected and highly-esteemed by all who knew him. All through his long life he bore a fine Christian character. He was a life-long member of Shercock Presbyterian Church, of which he was an elder for over forty years. He was deeply interested in the affairs of the church. He was widely read, and always kept himself in touch with current events, in which he took a deep interest. His wife pre-deceased him a little over a year ago. He leaves a family of four sons and live daughters to mourn his loss, all of whom are in Australia except the youngest son and daughter.

The funeral, which took place on the 6th inst., was large and representative of all classes, being an expression of the regard and esteem in which the deceased was held. The chief mourners were Messrs. Henry M'Loughlin (son), Hubert William White (son-in-law), John Burns, John P. Eakin, George Forsythe, Joseph Wilson, James M'Loughlin, William M'Loughlin (relatives). Rev. F. Moore held a brief service at the house before the remains were removed to Shercock Presbyterian Church burying-ground, and again at the grave. In the course of his remarks he referred to, the useful life of the deceased, the high esteem in which he was held by all who knew him, and how much he would be missed by the congregation with which he had been so long connected.



News has been received by his parents in Bellaghy that Lance-Corporal Harold M'Crea, Australian Infantry, eldest son of Rev. Thos. M'Crea, Presbyterian minister, was severely wounded by a shell in the fighting of July 19. His right foot lias been amputated, but he has so far recovered as to be removed to Wilson War Hospital, Reading. He served in Gallipoli and Egypt before going to France.



At a meeting held yesterday in the City Hall -- the Lady Mayoress (Lady M'Cullagh) presiding -- it was announced that, after defraying expenses, a sum of 2,009 15s 6d bad been realised at the recent fete at Belfast Castle grounds in aid of the British Red Cross Society and the fund for providing comforts for Belgian soldiers.


Six Lives Lost.

It is officially reported that at 3-15 on Wednesday morning a series of Zeppelin raids occurred almost simultaneously at various points on the North-East Coast of England and the South-East Coast of Scotland. Antiaircraft guns were used, and the Zeppelins retired. They did no military damage, but killed six persons and injured seventeen. The damage to property was very slight.



At daybreak yesterday, under heavy fire, an attack was carried out by British naval aeroplanes upon an enemy airship shed at Evere, near Brussels. The objective was successfully bombarded from a height of 200 feet, and eight bombs were observed to hit the shed. Heavy columns of white smoke were seen to issue. Our machines returned safely.



During the past week the German submarines have been very busy in the North Sea, where a considerable number of trawlers were sunk, fortunately without any loss of life, while in the Mediterranean several steamers have been torpedoed, and in one case a number of passengers were drowned. Several vessels chased near the Spanish coast succeeded in escaping.



Mrs. Vance, Riverside, Antrim, daughter of the Moderator of the General Assembly (Right Rev. Dr. West), has received the following telegram from Mrs. C. C. Craig, wife of the member for South Antrim:-- "Captain Craig writes me to tell you he has been in the same hospital as Mr. Vance, who is wounded in the head, but doing well. I am so very glad of this wonderful news for you. Captain Craig and Mr. Vance are not now in the same hospital, but you will, of course, in time hear from your husband." Lieutenant Ezekiel Vance, who was previously reported killed in action, is a son of the late Mr. William Vance, merchant, Antrim. He was educated at the Royal Belfast Academical Institution, and before the war was in the estate agency business with Mr. H. D. M. Barton, of The Bush.



A party of thirteen officers and thirty-nine men from the Ulster Division -- one officer and three men from each battalion -- arrived in Belfast yesterday from the front to assist in a recruiting campaign over the North of Ireland, so as to enable the division to maintain its territorial character. The men, who looked in splendid condition, were accorded a hearty welcome on their arrival at the Great Northern Railway terminus.

Successful Provincial Meetings.

At a meeting held at Portrush under the presidency of Miss Hamilton, chairman of the Urban Council, in support of the Ulster Volunteer Force Patriotic Fund,

Sir Robert Liddell explained the origin and aims of the fund, and said the promoters now aimed at 100,000, and already 40,000 had been received. There were serving from Ulster 60,000 men, and he was not going to stop his work until he had at least 60,000 subscribers. (Applause.)

Captain Watt moved, and Mr. Jas. M'Farlane (vice-chairman of the Urban Council) seconded a resolution, which was passed, commending the fund to the support of every patriotic citizen, and declaring a subscription list open.

Rev. J. S. Pyper, B.A., moved that the following be appointed a local committee, with power to add to their number, to carry out the objects of the fund -- Miss Hamilton, Captain. F. H. Watt, Messrs. J. G. M. Morris, F. Audinwood, John Campbell, A. Graham, W. J. Farren, W. J. Morrow, F. M'Farlane, H. Hamilton, Robert Hart Maze, A. C. Scott, and H. A. G. Black. He said the fund should appeal to every right-thinking man and woman throughout the whole province of Ulster. Speaking as the representative of the Presbyterian community, he could assure the promoters that they would do all they could to help it.

Rev. R. Kirkpatrick, B.A. (curate of Holy Trinity Church), seconded the resolution, which was supported by the Hon. Malcolm Macnaghten, who said that he hoped the fund would become such as would enable them to provide for every Ulsterman who had gone out to serve King and country.

The resolution was passed.

A public meeting was held in the Dufferin Hall, Bangor, on Friday evening, to organise an effort for raising a contribution from the town to the U.V.F. Patriotic Fund. Mr. John M'Meekan, J.P., chairman of the Urban District Council, who presided, said they hoped to raise a contribution of 1,000 at the very least, but judging from the response already made he believed it would be nearer 2,000. (Applause.)

Colonel R. G. Sharman-Crawford, D.L., M.P., in proposing a resolution advancing the claims of the fund to the generous support of the townspeople, said they did not look on this as a charitable scheme, but rather as a tribute to the men. (Applause.)

Rev. W. J. Currie, B.A., First Bangor Presbyterian Church, seconded the resolution Heaven forbid, he said, that they should use the word "charity" in connection with the men who had helped to deliver them and to preserve their possessions from the vile hands of the Huns. It was part of the ransom of their freedom and their brotherhood; part of the debt they had incurred in sending their men to be bruised and broken for them. That debt they must in honour discharge in a fitting way. (Applause.)

The resolution was carried unanimously

Rev. J. A. Carey, M.A., rector of the parish, moved a resolution setting out the method by which the money should be raised, and emphasised the necessity for the fund and the need for generous support.

Rev. John Linahan seconded, and the resolution was adopted.

The Town Clerk, Mr. Jas. Milliken, wa appointed honorary secretary for the local fund, and Mr. Robert Logan, of the Belfast Bank, honorary treasurer.

A committee was appointed to make a house-to-house collection, and the list was opened for subscriptions. Nearly 300 was promised by those present, in addition to an initial contribution by Miss Connor of 50.

Two German seaplanes paid a visit to Dover on Saturday about noon, and in a stay of five minutes or so dropped four bombs before being driven off by anti-aircraft fire and aeroplanes. A few windows were broken, and one officer and six men were slightly injured.



Sincere regret will be felt at the death of Mr. Robert Gibson, J.P., Grand Secretary of the Belfast County Grand Lodge, Loyal Orange Institution, which occurred after a brief illness on Wednesday night at his residence, 4, Devonshire Villas, North Parade. A native of Belfast, the deceased was the eldest son of the late Mr. George Gibson, of Ulsterville Avenue, founder of the firm of George Gibson, & Company, linen merchants, 4, Linenhall Street. He was well known in connection with the staple industry, and carried on the business established by his father with ability and success practically up till the time of his death. From his youth he had been prominently identified with the Loyal Orange Institution, and in course of time he was elected Grand Secretary of the County Grand Lodge of Belfast, discharging the duties of that important office with efficiency and zeal. He was associated with the late Colonel Saunderson, Dr. Kane, Mr. William Johnston of Ballykilbeg, Dr. Hanna, and the other great leaders who have now passed away, and who, fought so finely against the separatist methods. After the great convention of Ulster Unionists, held in "The Plains," he was one of those chosen to represent the Ulster party at Hatfield House, where they were received by the late Marquis of Salisbury. He was a member of the Ulster Unionist Council, and was also associated with the Independent Order of Rechabites. A devoted member of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, the late Mr. Gibson was an elder in the College Square Church for many years when the late Dr. Gray was the minister, but later, when he went to reside in the Ballynafeigh District, he worshipped at the Cooke Centenary Presbyterian Church, of which Rev. Dr. Macmillan is minister, and held the position of secretary of the congregation. The deceased married in 1889 a daughter of the late Mr. George MacClean, of Crunnaght, County Antrim, and is survived by that lady and three sons, two of whom are at present serving their King and country. One of his sons, Second Lieutenant Albert H. Gibson, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, was killed in action on 1st July The utmost sympathy will be extended to the widow and family in their great bereavement. The funeral will take place or Saturday afternoon at 2-30 to the old Borough Cemetery.



At an intercessory service held in Hydepark Presbyterian Church, the Rev. J. D. Craig Houston gave a short address, in the course of which he emphasised the duty of Christian people praying not only for those who are occupying posts of danger at the front, but also for those who are passing through a not less trying ordeal of keeping lonely and anxious vigil at home. By way of enforcing his point of view he read an extract from a letter which a widowed mother had received from one of the three sons which she has in the battle line. "I do not really know," the writer says, "when I may get a run home. The fact of the matter is we are all too busy trying to crush the Huns to have a leave. What do you think of our lads? They fought as none others ever did, and carried the day, and made a name for themselves and for Ulster that will never die. I will remember the 1st July as long as I live. The only regrettable thing about it is that so many of them lost their lives. But do you know, mother, they are all proud to die for their country, and the only thing that grieves them is that when they do get knocked out it makes sore hearts at home. We often say to one another put here that it is a far greater pity of those at home. When I say those at home, I do not mean those termed slackers, for they do not deserve the name of men, but fathers and mothers and wives and sisters, because they have an anxious time thinking about us, while, as a rule, we take life pretty easily, and don't let anything worry us. For the first thing one learns on active service is not to trouble till trouble comes. For, as a chap told me one night when he and I were going up to a dangerous part of the line, he never worried, for if your name is on it you will get it."

[Note: I believe this letter to have been from William Fullerton who served with the Royal Irish Rifles to his mother Isabella Fullerton of Craigarogan. Eddie.]



We deeply regret to have to record the death of Mies Mary MacKillip, one of the principals of Victoria High School, Derry. She had been in failing health for a considerable time, and passed away on Sabbath at the Crawford Square residence. To the building up of Victoria High School, now one of the finest and most advanced educational establishments of its kind in Ireland, Miss Mary MacKillip gave the best part of her life. One of the early graduates of the Royal University of Ireland, her principal work in the school was the teaching of the Latin language, a subject for which she maintained an unwavering devotion. Unassuming in disposition, she was perhaps not so well known in public life as other principals of the school, but the numerous girls, past and present, who have the privilege of her tuition will remember with admiration and gratitude her unfailing interest and earnestness in her work. And as they were witnesses to the success of the united work of the principals of this distinguished school, they will realise all the more the loss of one who bore a name honoured in the educational world and was held in affectionate regard by all who know the principals and their work. The most heartfelt sympathy of the community as well as of past and present pupils will go out to the sisters in their great sorrow.



On Sabbath evening a memorial service was held at Ballyrashane Church for Sapper Chas. W. Martin, killed in action at Thiepval on 1st July, and for Trooper James Wright, wounded at La Boiselle on 22nd July -- subsequently dying at St. John's Military Hospital at Etaples on the 28th ult. The service was conducted by the Rev. James Dewar, Belfast, and the Rev. C. W. Hunter, minister pf Ballyrashane. There was a congregation of about four hundred, and the collection taken was on behalf of the wounded. After the benediction the congregation stood whilst Mr. Brodie, organist, played the "Dead March."



A charming wedding took place at Fisherwick Presbyterian Church, Malone Road, on Wednesday, when Lieutenant George Kirkland, 4th Machine-Gun Section Australian Imperial Forces, son of Mr. James Kirkland, manager of Messrs. John Arnett & Co., Ltd., was married to Miss May Calderwood, eldest daughter of Mr. John A. Calderwood, 248, Newtownards Road. The bridegroom was wounded twice during the Gallipoli campaign, and took part in the evacuation of the peninsula, while his present leave is the result of being wounded on July 1 in the fighting round Pozieres. The bride was given away by her father. The bridesmaids were Miss Bertha Calderwood, sister of the bride and Miss Daisy Kirkland, sister of the bridegroom. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Wm. Witherow, assisted by Rev. D. Tynan and Rev. Thomas M'Ilrath, cousin of the bride. The bridegroom was supported by Mr. James Kelso as best man. After the ceremony a reception was given at the Grand Central Hotel at which many guests were present. Later the happy couple left for Portrush, where they will spend their honeymoon.



Recruiting Campaign.


There was a large gathering at the front of the City Hall on Wednesday when the new recruiting campaign in connection with the Ulster Division was formally inaugurated.

Lieut. Cordner, Royal Irish Rifles (formerly assistant to Rev. John Pollock at St. Enoch's Church), said the Ulster Division went into action something like 20,000 strong, but today it was very far short of that number. Some of their boys were prisoners of war through no fault of their own; others occupied unnamed graves behind the battle line, but they all lived in hearts that loved them well, and they had helped to make Britain's story. He appealed to the strong young men of military age of whom there were many still in the country, to come in and fill the gaps that had been made in the ranks of their brothers. Let them say, "Here am I. Here is my life. I am willing to give that life for the land of my birth and the land of my father's grave." Some might say that that was too much to ask them to give. If he knew anything about the temper of Belfast, any easier appeal would not come home to them. The men of Belfast liked a strong appeal -- something that called to the best and noblest in their nature. They had already got a number of recruits, but they wanted many more. A gentleman who was a patriot had said to him, "But the cream has all gone." His reply I was "that even if that were true they could beat the Germans with the skimmed milk left." (Laughter and cheers.) There were some men who withheld on the ground that they did not like to do so because they had not done so up to now. It just required as much courage to go to-day as it did two years ago. There was then a certain amount of glamour about joining the Army; there was very little about it now. Two years ago it might have seemed pleasure; now it was business. Do not let bright prospects at home, or the wishes of their nearest and dearest, keep them from ging to the recruiting station. It was their duty. A Belfast gentleman who had a son at the front told him the other day that he would rather have his son a dead hero in France than a living slacker at home. (Cheers.)

Lieut. T. M. Bennet, 10th Royal Irish Rifles, said the lads at the front were having to do three times the work they need to because of those who were slacking at home. The Ulster Division was a Volunteer Division, and they did not want it filled with conscripts; yet there would possibly be conscription before Christmas if recruits did not come forward in greater numbers.

Lieut. E. F. Lepper, Royal Irish Rifles (North Belfast) said there were practically no men in the Division at present who were not from Ulster, and he hoped they would be able to maintain that reputation till the end of the war.

Company Sergt.-Major Magookin, D.C.M., said that both the Ulster Division and the other Irish regiments had fought splendidly, and he wanted to keep them filled with their own men from the Old Country.


Captain E. S. B. Hamilton, R.A.M.C., who has been gassed, but has sufficiently recovered to be able to write home, is a son of the Rev. R. W. Hamilton, of Railway Street Presbyterian Church, Lisburn. Capt. Hamilton, who is an old Campbellian and a graduate of Edinburgh University, was in practice in Manchester before the war. On joining the service for the war he was posted to the 45th. Field Ambulance, and was taken prisoner at Mons. After a somewhat prolonged detention in Germany he was released with a number of other medical officers.

Lieutenant Thomas D. Kingan, Royal Irish Rifles (County Down Volunteers), wounded, is the younger son of the late Mr. Samuel Kingan, D.L., of Glenganagh, Bangor, and a grandson of the late Mr. John Sinclair, of The Grove, Belfast. Before obtaining a commission he was a barrister in the North East Circuit. His wound is not serious.

Second-Lieutenant J. W. Shannon, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers (Derry Volunteers) officially reported missing and unofficially reported a prisoner of war, has sent the following communication to his father, Mr. John Shannon, Adelaide Avenue, Coleraine -- "Just a line to say that I am in hospital, as indicated on front of this card (at Wahn, Germany). I was knocked out by a shell, a large fragment of which penetrated my right leg, smashing the bones on both sides. I was picked up, after lying two days in the German trench, by the German soldiers, who carried me to the casualty station. I may say I have received every care and consideration from the German medical authorities, and I trust they will be able to save my leg.

Second-Lieutenant S. W. Maxwell, Royal Irish Rifles (East Belfast Volunteers), recently reported missing, believed killed, has written to his mother, Mrs. Agnes Maxwell, 30, Cliftonville Avenue, Belfast, as follows -- "Just a line to let you know I have decided to live in Germany for the remainder of the war. Am quite well, with the exception of a broken leg, which is being looked after and is doing very well." Second-Lieut. Maxwell, whose father, the late Mr. Samuel Maxwell, was for many years in the Sullatober Print and Dye Works, Carrickfergus, is well known in the tea trade in the city. He was a member of the Fortwilliam Battalion of the North Belfast Regiment, Ulster Volunteer Force, and took an interest in the Boys' Brigade movement, being an officer in the 14th (Cherryville Street Mission) Company.

Second-Lieutenant H. H. Dunwoody, Royal Irish Fusiliers, killed, was educated at Campbell College, Belfast, and then entered Queen's University as a student at civil engineering in which he had almost completed his course. For two years he was assistant master in Larne Grammar School. He joined the cadet corps in Queen's University, from which he received his commission in the Royal Irish Fusiliers (Ulster Division). In less than four months he was sent to the front. He was in the great push of the 1st July, 1916, and came out of it unscathed. After being engaged on patrol duty he was killed by a rifle bullet at a listening post in the front trench on the 31st July, 1916. His father, Mr. Robert Dunwoody, 92, Holywood Road, has received a letter of sympathy from the commanding officer, in which he says -- "Your son had only joined the battalion a short time. He was showing great keenness in his work, and had already been out on patrol under instructions, and done well, and he gave promise of becoming a good officer. My sympathy goes out to you in your sorrow. We laid him to rest in the little cemetery here, and his grave will be marked with a plain cross, with name and date and 'Killed in action.'"


At the August meeting of the Governing Body of the Central Presbyterian Association -- the president, Mr. John Sinclair, in the chair -- the general secretary, Mr. A. T. M'Clelland, reported that since the previous meeting news had been received of the deaths in action of four members of the association. The C.P.A. men who have recently fallen fighting for King and country are Second-Lieutenant H. H. Dunwoody, of the R.I.F., youngest son of Mr. Robert Dunwoody, Connsbrook Terrace, who is also an esteemed member of the association; Second-Lieutenant H. Corry Osborne, of the West Yorks, eldest son of Mr. Joseph Osborne, C.A., one of the honorary auditors of the association; Second-Lieutenant John Lecky, of the R.I.R., only child of the Rev. A. G. Lecky, B.A., Ballylennon; and Private T. G. M'Kinney, one of the Royal Fusiliers, only son of Mr. John T. M'Kinney, Sentry Hill, Carnmoney. The news of the death of Sergeant Alfred Owens, of the Machine Gun Corps, previously reported, had been officially confirmed. Thirteen of the 200 odd members of the association with the colours have made the supreme sacrifice. The President expressed the sympathy of the Governing Body and the entire membership of the association with the bereaved relatives, and the meeting approved of the secretary's action in sending letters of sympathy in the name of the association to the mourners.


Corporal J. H. A. Byrne, of the Royal Flying Corps, who early in the present year was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal, has now been decorated with the "Croix de Guerre" by the French Government in recognition of his heroic deed.

Corporal Byrne, who is to be heartily congratulated on this further decoration, is a native of Belfast, and is a brother of Mr. J. Edwards Byrne, of Royal Avenue, and Chichester Park.

A Week's Campaign.


During the past week a recruiting campaign was conducted by a detachment of officers and men of the Ulster Division throughout the province, and a large number of young men responded to the appeal to fill up the depleted ranks of the Division. The following letter from General Nugent, Commander of the Division, has been received by Brigadier-General Backet Pain, Commanding the Northern District -- "Would you kindly inform the recruiting authorities in Ulster that any men joining for a particular unit will he sent to that unit as soon as they are sufficiently trained. Owing to a mistake during the operations at the early part of last month, men of the Ulster Division were inadvertently sent to divisions other than their own. This is now being rectified, and instructions have been issued that men of the Ulster Division are to be sent to units of the division, and are on no account to be sent elsewhere. I hope that if this fact is known at home it may have the desired effect and induce many to offer their services who up to the present have held back.


The Belfast contingent were entertained at luncheon in the Carlton Restaurant on Monday by the members of the Rotary Club. Mr. J. M. Colton, president of the Rotary Club, presided, and after the loyal toast had been honoured the audience rose and drank in silence to the memory of "Our Fallen Heroes," submitted by Mr. H. H.

Major Gunning, in responding, said they were grateful to the members of the Rotary Club for giving them that opportunity of stating their views in regard to recruiting in Belfast. The speaker urged that more women should be employed in occupations for which they were suited, in order that a corresponding number of men might be released for military service. If these men were released on the understanding that their jobs would be kept open for them on their return from the war, he believed they would secure all the recruits they wanted for the Ulster Division. (Applause.)

Captain J. D. Nicholl, who also responded, said he was happy to say that their efforts to obtain recruits had so far been successful. (Applause.) They had also succeeded in arousing the citizens to a sense of their duty, although he was sorry to say that he had come across business men who did not encourage their employees to enlist. It was absolutely necessary that they should get more men: they must get them voluntarily, if possible, but if this method did not succeed they would have to resort to compulsion.

The toast was also responded to by other officers of the recruiting party.

The recruiting campaign conducted by the special party of seventy officers and men of the Ulster Division throughout the province concluded on Wednesday evening. Yesterday afternoon the party paraded in Victoria Barracks Square, and were inspected by Brigadier-General Hacket Pain, C.B., and headed by the band of the Rifles, they subsequently proceeded to the Great Northern Railway terminus, en route for the front. Their departure was witnessed by a large concourse of citizens, and they had an enthusiastic send-off.


There was a crowded congregation in Great Victoria Street Presbyterian Church, Belfast, on Sabbath evening, when Second-Lieutenant James Cordner, Royal Irish Rifles, delivered a rousing address on the interests of the recruiting campaign being carried on in the city. Speaking from the text -- "Who knowest whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this" (Esther iv. 14), the speaker said this message with its ring of destiny was meant for the men of our own time as truly as for that ancient queen. Who knows but that every fit man among us was born at such a time as to be designed to take his place in the tragedies across the sea? This was not merely a war among nations -- it was a war of civilisations, and the question for every capable man was, What am I doing in deciding as to which shall win? Formerly we were said to be fighting for Belgium and France and scraps of paper. Now we have come to see that we are fighting for Britain and Belfast and the homes of County Down. We are contending for great principles -- for honour, justice, liberty, and on behalf of victory for all those nobler sentiments, without which we would be ashamed to live. In winning that victory a man might lose rosy prospects, but he would gain his self-respect and stand well in his own esteem. He might lose a position, but he would gain the gratitude of all true men; aye, he might lose his life, but in doing so he would keep it unto life eternal. He appealed to them to "come on" and help us to see this thing through.

Second-Lieutenant Cordner was formerly minister of the United Free Presbyterian Church, Dublin Road, Lisburn, relinquishing that position last year to become a combatant officer.


We understand that in a recent interview with the Lord Mayor (Sir Crawford M'Cullagh) Brigadier-General Hacket Pain informed his Lordship that he was afraid the progress of recruiting in the city was rather retarded by the fact that some men of military age who have not yet joined the ranks were, in case they enlisted, rather doubtful about being reinstated in their present positions after returning from the war. The Lord Mayor, we learn, assured the General that generally speaking it was the intention of employers when their men came back again as far as possible to reinstate in their former positions any employees who had left their service to join the Navy or Army.


Rev. A. J. Gillespie, minister of Waringstown Presbyterian Church, left on Monday to undertake three months work amongst the troops in France under the auspices of the Y.M.C.A.



Intimation has been received from the War Office that the death took place in action on the 16th inst. of Lieutenant Wm. Urquhart, M.A., B.D., of the Black Watch. Lieutenant Urquhart, who was parish minister of Kinloch Rannoch, enlisted as a private in the Royal Scots early in 1915, and afterwards received his commission in the Black Watch. He had been at the front for about a year, and was married while on furlough in May. He was a native of Aberdeenshire, and was educated at Aberdeen University. He held two assistantships in the South before being ordained to Kinloch Rannoch in 1910.
