VOLUME XXXVII. No. 344. ____ PERTH AMBOY, N. J., WEDNESDAY, MAY 23, 1917 TEN PAGES—TWO CENTS LIBERTY LOAN" GIVEN IMPETUS Ormsby McHarg, Financial Ex pert, Addresses Committee of 100 at City Hall. DOLLARS TO FIGHT KAISER Adrian Lyon is Made Perma nent Chairman of Commit tee at Meeting. "Any man who at this critical time Is able to purchase a Liberty Loan bond and doee not, Is untrue, not only to the government of the United States, but also to the thousands of sons who are being sent to carry on the war on the battlefield'. We have sent our sons to the front to risk their lives there and It Is our duty as fathers to support and supply these boys with everything necessary in order that this country may win. This is our fight and we have got to flnanco it." With this declaration Ormsby Mc Harg, banker and financial expert of New York, roused members of the Liberty Loan Committee, composed of 100 citizens of tills city, at a well attended meeting held In the City Hall council chamber last night. Mr. McHarg stated that at this time five billion dollars could be raised with Just one-twentieth of the effort needed to raise three billions during the Civil War. "If it became necessary," he stated, "seventy-five billion dollars could be easily raised In thie country today, the great ma chines which are now in operation In the many great industries which we did not have In the Civil War being a source of income. No word would be received so Joyfully by Germany than that the United States citizens are reluctant to buy government bonds. The United States has enter ld tills war and it can't quit now. It must see the thing through to the end. Any man who at this time holds back does his country an Injury." The speaker stated that in his opinion the government has been liberal in the way In which It has issued these bonds, which will pay three and a half per cent. Interest. "Although In case of necessity the government can take all of the money it needs," Mr. McHarg declared, "the United States has placed on the mar ket bonds which pay as much and even more Interest than some banks and no better security can be gotten anywhere than these government bonds. The only way to encourage not only the United States soldiers but also the fighters of Great Britain and Franco, Is to back them up financially." Mr. McHarg In closing emphasized the need of purchasing these bonds from the government. As he brought hU discourse to a close the speaker said, "Six months from now when λ we harre a half million men In Europe ) pèàce will be nearer." Mr. McHarg brought with him Colonel Duncan M. Stewart, also a banker who had been in the early part of the war with the Canadian army. Colonel Stewart also brought out the fact that the citizens of thW country should over-subscribe for this loan In order that the whole world will be impressed by the willingness of the people to support the govern ment in Its undertaking. He pointed out that α lack of sufficient subscrip tions would be a comfort to the en ' The speaker told what the govern ment was doing In order that all banks might have an equal share in the dis tributing of bonds. Ordinarily, |lie stated, such actions of taking money out of the banks and investing them In "onde would be disastrous, but not In this case as the government is see ing tlhat no one bank will be drawn upon more than another. Colonel Stewart stated that some people were holding off before buying in hopes that the other bonds will come at a high rate of Interest. "This," he declar ed, "is not possible, but if such a thing should occur, the rate of the present bonds would also be raised, making It just as safe to buy now as at a fu ture date." Following the close of the speech making Acting Chairman Adrian Lyon called for nominations for the position of permanent chairman of this committee of one hundred. It was moved and seconded that a nom inating committee be named by the chair. This was done, it being com posed of A. C. Clark, Hamilton F. Kean and D. P. Olmstead.

Mr. Bald win stated that a similar plan had been put Into effect at the Standard Underground Cable Work». A report was also received that the American Smelting &.
