TUCKERTON PLANT DISABLED Communications With; Germany Hin dered When Wireless Machinery Fails Communications between this country and Germany received a serious setback today when the wireless plant at Tucker- ton, N. J., was forced to shut down owing to an accident to tho machinery. While the naval officers in charge of tho station would not divulge exactly what tho nature of the breakdown was, It Is understood that tho soncrators had burned out because of the high pressure at which tho plant has been forced to run night and day. In an endeavor to dispatch all the messages accoptcd for transmis sion. As tho Tuckerton station Is ono of two in the United States furnishing direct communication with Germany, it has been practically swamped with work since the cables ceased operation. The generators affected by the breslc down are the most vital part of tho send ing machinery. As all the machinery In use at Tuckerton Is of Gorman manu facture. there may be much difficulty In replacing tho destroyed parts so that the plant may be kept out of commission for some time.

Tho peasants go to the front with great enthusiasm, nnd radical nnd conservative alike chocr them on. Newspapers of all parties are one, and Liberal organs aro as loyal as those of Kxtrome Right, There Is tho same unanimity among Pole,' and Jows, and oven Jewish volunteer regiments have been formed. The only sympathy with Germany n. In Uie breasts of iho Finns. The only Instinct to fall Into brlgandago and re bellion Is among the Mohammedan tubes men of Caucasus. All Is well, nnd if success crowns the Russian arms, tht empire will become bound In a happy allegiance, to the Czar as never before. On the other hand, if the Germans gain tho upper hand, and Inflict vaBt slaughter, the presence of millions of armed liui. slans In western Russia U prcgnnnt with danger for all who havo property and culture and position there, This war Ii. a matter of llfo nnd death for Russlnn civilization, as It 13 for all tho other States onsagod. Tho air Is full of hope. All vodka shops havo been cloned for a month, nnd Russia has taken on tho nppenrance of sobriety. It has been Impossible to obtain alcoholic liquors of any kind, and ns a consequence drunlcennoafl has disappeared from tlia streets, nnd with It tho great army of beggars, who only be that they may gather a few kopeks for a bottle. The absence of vodka has made a great blank In tho peasants' lives, but that blank has been filled up by war nnd (lit Intorest of war. Ordinarily the peasants feel they have nothing to do but drink, but now It Is otherwise. It is aa If In war they found a real reason for exist once as If In death they found the ob ject of living. My ears ache with tho sound of wom en's sobs. All the way from the peacotul und happy villages of tho Altai the sounds of wailing and crying broko upon my ears. Here, however, In Moscow It Is different; some ono has wiped away their tears, and the women, with sun shiny, If tear-stained, faces, aro fever ishly working- for the thousands ot wounded who havo come back for their care. Already there aro MOO wounded In Moscow, and they increase ut the rate of five tratuloads dally. The streets are thronged with Red Cross nurses. In every house women are thinking of what they can do personally for tho wounded; how many they can take to nurse. Alas! Wo nro only at the beginning of sorrow, and for tho thousands of wounded today there will be tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands a week or a month hence. Kvcn all the care and thought of thoso at home will bo too little to meet the suffering, nnd many poor soldiers will die without the touch of ono skilled or riontlo hand. Xiuve for tho soldlcis In hysterical. At tho railway stations whero the wounded nrrlvo await largo crowds of women w-l'li baskets of Klfl.S and when the huge cross, which marks tho ambulance train, comes In and stops, thrro Is a new and sweet Invasion, all the girls running along tho corridors with cigarettes, tea, sugar, cakes and newspapers. Kvcn the German wounded participate in the sen rrnl hnspltulily, nnd you frequently hear Russian women say of n wounded enemy before her: "Poor one: Is il his fault In la flKhtiiiff ur?" The Germans, for their pait, are veiy .suspicious, asking if tho tea Is not vit riol, refusing to take medicine, nnd ask Ing: "When nro we to be hanged?"
