There is no need for us to say much about the personalities whose portraits figure on this double – page, as they have all been so much in the public eye of late. It may he noted however, that it was announced on August 4 that, with the approval of the King, Admiral Sir John R. Jellicoe had assumed supreme command of the Home Fleets, with the acting rank of Admiral, and that Rear-Admiral Charles E. Madden had been appointed to be his Chief of Staff. Sir John Jellicoe, who is known in the Service as “J. J.,” is fifty-five. In 90oo, as a Captain, he commanded the Naval Brigade and acted as chief staff officer in the Pekin Legation Relief Expedition. After a distinguished career he became Second Sea Lord ii Igrz. He is one of the greatest gunnery experts of the day. It may be added, too, that he is a survivor of the “Victoria,” which sank after being in collision with the “Camperdown ” 0i Tripoli in 1893. – With regard to the King of the Belgians. It need only be recalled that he made a personal and “supreme ” appeal to the King for the diplomatic intervention

of the British Government to safeguard the integrity of Belgium. On August 5 it was stated that he was starting for the front. Mr. John Redmond, it wilt be remembered, nmade the patriotic announcement in the House on August 3 that the British Government might withdraw every one of their troops from Ireland, whose coasts would be defeided by her armed sons, Catholic Nationalists and Protestant Ulstermen acting in union.– The Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, whose neutral State German troops enterei, was born on June 14, 1894, and succeeded in February gr1. – -At the earliest stage of the crisis, M. Jean Jaurbe, the famous Socialist leader and peace advocate, was shot dead after presiding at an internation:l peace conference in Paris. Many tributes have been paid to his memory, by the French Government amongst others.–Lord Morley recently resigned his office as Lord President of the Council, but it was said that he would contin.e the duties unt:l the appointment of a siccessor.
