The meeting will be held In the city hall at 8 o'clock. Before the meeting the Sacred Heart Fife and Drum Corps will parade and a street meeting will be held on Broadway about 7:45. On account of the limited supply of uniforms, rifles and other equipment, the local boys are striving very hard to reach their allotment and be quick ly mustered in service so that the out fitting of the company will not be de layed. Promisee have come from the Quartermaster's Department at Trenton that equipment will be imme diately forthcoming if the company does not delay too long in organizing. Most of the members have been ex amined by local physicians and meas ured for their uniforms. As it is expected that the seventy five quota will be reached tonight the company will be mustered in by an officer from the governor's staff with in the next few days. The publication In Saturday's issue of the EVENING NEWS that the Houth Amboy company would be a machine gun company and be known as Company P. Third Battalion, New Jersey Militia, was read with much interest in this city.

It is believed that this announcement will prove a big stimulus toward filling u > the Quota at once. The organization committee are also especkUly pleased with the assignment to the Third Bataillon, as that is considered the best berth in the state organization. It consists of Company A from Lake wood, Β and <J from Ked Bank, D from Asbury Park, Ε from New Brunswick, and Company F from this city. No election of company officers has been held as yet as it was declared that full membership be secured first so that every one would have equal opportunity. The officers who will receive commissions from the state are the captain, first and second lieu tenants. The non-commissioned of ficers are first sergeant, supply serge ant, three duty sergeants, and nine corporals. Both officers and privates will be paid full military pay for the actual time they may be called out for emergency duty. The members also will receive an allowance for weekly drills. In the old National Guard this amounted to ninety-three cents and upward, according to rank. This organization affords an oppor tunity for war service to the man who cannot leave his family and enlist els it does not affect his prenent employ ment. It is also a chance for the young man under twent one, or the man of draft age, who ha not yet be^ CaÏÏe<T" This class will gai military ^xperienca in the State Mill·; ι that wj] greatly benefit them when <lraft#f iater on In the second or thlrj^-GVafts.
