Watch For Red Cross Barrels
Manager Duncan is being assisted
by Capt. E. H. Talker. At present
they are busy collecting barrels bar
rels by the dozen which they are
painting in red, while and blue. In
the center of the white band on each
barrel is being painted a red cross
and the words "Salvage Depar'ment,
American Ued Cross."
These barrels are to be placed in
stores, railroad stations, schools, and
at other places where they will be
easily accessible to everybody, and
1 no public is invited to place in them
miscellaneous articles or materials
which they are willing to give for
the cause. The barrels will be col
lected at regular intervals. Arrange
ment has already been made by which
the Kahului Railroad will carry with
out charge all materials for the de
partment, and a large number of
merchants and other truck owners
hi'V? also offered to transport Ued
Cross articles fre to the warehouse.
The salvage department is being
worked most successfully in many
sections of the mainland, and last
week was starled in Honolulu already
with most encouraging results. The
I entire proceeds of the business is to
go into the Ued Cross fund.

AMERICAN POUT, Western France,
Sept. 2 (Correspondence of The As
sociated Press). The spirit which
animates all Americans here is the
same as thai of tie front line trenches
is the words of the General command
ing. It is an inspiration of intense
eagerness. This is shown by the
fact that under the stress of haste to
send American soldiers to the fight
ing front, the time required to unload
the greatest of American transports
bringing 12,iuo troops, coal her and
start iter back to America, has been
reduced from four days to forly hours.
This is the best deep-water port of
western continental Europe with a
harnor capable of receiving the navies
of the world, and yet up to the time
the Americans came here six months
ago it was practically undeveloped
and unused. It was estimated then
that the facilities might possibly
permit the landing of 20,(100 men a
m out h.
Hut with snoinn men a month com
ing from America, something had to
be done on a gigantic scale and done
quickly. Fortunately the emergency
produced the menlll and an American
brigadier general who has planned
and executed some of the great en
gineering projects of the west, and an
American Admiral who has the repu
tat ion of accomplishing large things
in a quiet way. Around them were
grouped men of the same talents.
Out of it has arisen this man-clous
receiving port of today, where one
dav's landing of 45,000 men has been
followed the next day by la.000 60
000 in two days or at t lie unneara
rate of !hii,immp a month. And the
tr-tnL-e thing has been that the port
has nol felt or even known of the
huge migration pi ssing through its
itos. so quietlv and smoothly the or
ganisation has functioned
11 is the same rit the handling ot
the immense stocks of war supplies
iis it is with the handling of troops
Six months ago it was estimated that
G.000 tons a month could be handled.
Actually more than that is handled
rlailv, and this is not the main port for
uniilics. as it is for men
A l?.i ge measure of credit for the
hiirh record in debarking troops is
given bv the General to the ofllcer in
cha.-ge of the several thousand negro
stevedores. This officer has had a
remarkable career which exactly eq
uips him for the present huge under
taking. He was ! Liverpool docker,
who went to the United States with
the Cunard company, and worked up
to the position of terminal uporin-
tendenf at Boston. As an expert and
master of docking he was appointed
a major in, the army. But he forgel3
all about being a major when ho takes
command of those 2,000 black steve
dores and a great ocean steamer
heaves into sight with thousands of
men abroad who must be landed on
record time. All the old spirit of the
Liverpool docker comes back again
he becomes a human dynamo, and the
armv of black stevedores follow him
with the same eagerness that men fol
low their leader "over the top". Here
are some examples showing just what
When the greatest of American
transports first came over it took 52
davs to unload h"- tit Liverpool. The
next trip was better 2S days. Then
on the third trip it was decided to
send her to this French port where
the Americans had began to take
things over. II was a risky experi
ment, they thought. Hut they failed
to reckon on the major and his black
stevedores, for th:. is the remarkable
record of how the great vessel has
been handled at the port:
Fir; t arm al 10, 11:111 men and supplies
unloaded and I lie ship coaled and sent
back in Kll'l! days.
Second arrival, unloaded, coaled
and sent hack in THREE days.
Third arrival, unloaded, coaled and
sen: back in FORTY-EIGHT HOURS.
F until arrival, unloaded, coaled
t,i back in FORTY HOCUS.
The magnitude of such an accom
plishment, may be judged by the fact
hat ,1,(100 Ions of coal has to be put
m the huge transport to send her
hack, and all (f this must be loaded
Tom lighters as her 41 feet or draught
keeps her far 'out in the harbor. And
ill this in forly hours besides debark
ing li),000 troops on lighters and sev
eral thousand tons of steel and em
ergency war cargo.
Americans seem to have discovered
for the first time that this port is
nearer New York than any of the
great commercial highroad from the
west to continental Europe. This
holds out a brilliant future for the
port in the after the war commercial
renaissance. One of the foremost
American, engineers recently said he
would like to undertake to make this
the great commercial port of Europe,
and he believed this would certainly
result from the American develop
ment incident to the war. So that,
besides landing soldiers and supplies
here, America is paving the way to
makin.g this the first port of Europe
