Perth Amboy Is today being can vassed by 600 workers In an effort to secure 8,500 new memberships to the local chapter of the American Red Cross. Although the abovo number has been sot as Perth Amboy's ap portionment, It Is the general belief that the number can be passed by 10,000 and It Is with the larger num ber as their goal that the teams are working. The campaign was appropriately opened Saturday afternoon with a parade an<l big mass meeting. Al though the streets were snow covered and the weather below freezing, a large turnout responded and formed In line at 2:30 o'clock In High street. The members of the Red Cross turn ed out in largo numbers In spite of adverse weather conditions and were the subjects of congratulatory re marks all along· the Una of march be- I cause of their patriotism shown In I this evemt. The parade headed by' Mayor John F. TenBroeck, General Chairman of the Executive Commit tee Albert Leon and Marshal Glen worth Sturgls, passed north on High street, out Smith street to the Central railroad, where It countermarched as far as State street and went to the high school. In the parada were the members of the Red Cross chapter here, the various divisions of the home defense league, a police escort, members of the executive committee of the Red Cross campaign, captains and work ers, the Rarltan Copper Works am bulance and stretcher units, the St. Mary's, St. Peter's, Westminster and High School Drums and Bugle Corps.

Fol lowing the singing of "America" Cap tain Arthur Rudd, former assistant to the American ambassador in Petrograd was introduced. Captain Rudd spoke In behalf of tho Russian people. He stated that he was a firm believer In the Rus sian people and was certain that they do not wish peace. The trouble In Russia, he declared, Is being caused by such men as Trotsky and I.enine who havo gone to Russia from Amer ica and told the Russians that the American form of government le-a failure, all wrong and that they should not follow In America's foot steps. Tho Russians, Captain Rudd declared, are being accused of laying down. When they entered the war, be continued, Russia placed fourteen million men in the Hold. Now they have lost seven million In dead, wounded and prisoners. Even If they should stop at this point they would have done their bit, the speak er declared, but he expressed his con fidence In the Russian people, that they will find themselves and con tinue the fight.

AMBOY SOLDIER, I REPORTED AS MISSING III GERMANY Luke A. Lovely, eon of Thomas jovely, of 101 Stevens avenue, South Arniboy, has been reported missing Λ-ith Pershing's armies in France. A telephone message received by the 'ather of the missing youth yesterday stated: "We regret to report that rour eon, Private Luke A. Lovely, o£ ,he Engineers division, is among the missing in aotlon." The message was originally Eigned by the adjutant gen eral and sent by telegraph to New ïork. Owing to the wires being down it was telephoned to Mr. Lovely a1 1:40 o'clock yesterday afternoon. A letter containing the message from Washington Is expected. Lovely was twenty-five years ol< on November 26 and tt is believed he was one of the heroic American engi neers who, cut off from the BritlsJi lines, fouglit so valiantly in tlu G-ouzeacourt fighting on November 30 Reports otf the wonderful fight put ui by the American engineers have beer In both English and American news· papers ever ein.ee the attack, all speaking highly of the "Sammies' bravery. The South Amboy youth enlistei through the Perth Amboy recruitinf station on May 21, in the first reserv< corps of the engineers. He was sen to Fort Totten, where he was assigned to Company E, Eleventh Enginears After receiving training at that for for about a month and a half he !ef for the other side. A letter was re celved by hie father on July 14th, stating that by tho time the letter was received he would be on hie way across the Atlantic. Six weeks later word was received that Lovely had arrived safely In Eng land and later a letter came from France. Mr. Lovely stated this morn ing that his son had been writing home at two week Intervals ever since. Tha last letter received was on November 21, and with it was a box containing Christmas gifts for those at home from their loved one who was doing his duty "over there." The next word received was the tel ephone message yesterday from New York telling of the telegram received there from Washington announcinc young Lovely as being "missing." Whether tho popular South Amboj resident Is dead, wounded or a pris oner, Is not known. It Is tho beliel that he le a prisoner, as reports re garding the raid declare the German! took some of the American engineers General Halg, a few days after th« clash between the engineers and th< Germans, congratulated General Per shing on the excellent showing mad< by the American engineers. Thej were armed only with shovels ani hammers when the Germans surpris ed them. Some of the engineers wer« on a locomotive which they wer< using. They dropped Into shell hole! and as soon as they could make theii way back to the British lines secured arms from the Tommies and started | back to fight the Boche. Reports have been received by the score from | ι the British of how these American I engineers fought hand to hand with I the Germans In thle skirmish. The j railways upon which the engineers were working, was blown up by the ! Germans. Several of the American engineers were reported captured. Later reports stated that several of | these had escaped. This small continent of engineers | was among the first Americans to clash with the Germans. The "pio neers," as the French call the engi neers, were some distance In advance of the British trenches laying a rail road track, when they were surprised by the enemy and cut off from the British. A French newspaper had the fol lowing account of the encounter: "The courageous conduct of a num ber of American soldiers attracted much attention. They were pioneers and specialists engaged in construc tion and working on field railroads. When the enemy appeared Friday morning, (November SO), they ex I changed their shovels for rifles and ! cartridges and fought along side the I Tommies. Several fell gloriously, with arms In their hands, facing the foe. "No man who saw them at work but pralees glowingly the coolness, discipline and courage of these Impro vised fighters." TRUE COAL SITUATION AS EXPLAINED BÏ OFFICIALS AT THREE BIG DOCKS That the recent ihoim had a bad c-ffect on coal shipments from the three coal shipping terminals center ing in this city, but that the coal is now going out to the Metropolitan district in good shape and order, and that more coal could be handled if received, was the gist of reports received this morning from the local docks of the Lehigh Valley Railroad Company, the South Amboy docks of the Susquehanna Coal Company and the Port Reading docks of the Philadelphia and Port Reading. In speaking of the situation, upon which much attention has been focused through the shortage in New York city, the superintendents of the three docks spoke optimistically today, and said that they look forward to better conditions within a short time, and that they do not think there will be any appreciable shortage when traffic is cleared after the effect of last week's storm, which erippied many of the traction Unes. The following is tlio situation as potnted out by officers of tlio three lines: LEHIGH VALLEY DOCKS. Superintendent Dorsey. Superintendent Charles H. Dorsey of the Lehigh Valley Docks In tills city said this morning: "We have things in pretty good shape here to day. U'e worked yesterday all day, and all night and will continue with double shifts till we clean up the ac cumulation in the yards. There are about 6S0 cars of coal in our yards at present, which we want to get out as soon as we can clear them up from the docks. "All our coal is going to New York harbor at the present time as fast a;! we can unload it here, onto the boats. The coal has come through from the mines in good shape, with a slight halting due to the storm last week, but things are working smoothly now, and we are handling the coal as fast as we can. "We are not hampered with labor shortage, but are in good shape, and have sufficient men, 110 men working on Dock A alone. We have men from other divisions aiding in the present work of clearing up, 'but do not need any more help." SERVICE FLAG, 60 STARS, - RAISED BY Y. M. H. A. A service flag containing sixty stars representing· the members of that or ganization now in the service of their country was unfurled at the local Y. M. H. A. building last night. The meeting was attended by about 200 members of the Υ. Μ. Η. Α., the Y \V\ Η. Α., and their many friends. In connection -with the unfurling of the flag speeches were made in honor of the boys who have gone from that as sociation to tight by Rev. E. Friedman, Mayor John P. TenBroeck and Harold E. Pickersgill. Albert Leon, chair man of the Red Cross executive com mittee niado an urgent appeal for memberships and this subject was also included in the speeches of the other men. Eighty-six memberships were se cured for the Retl Cross from those present. An interesting program was carried out, following the speeches by members of the Y. W. H. A. and Y. M. H. A.

Yardmaster Sullivan of the Port Reading docks of the P. & R. company said this morning:: "All the yards hereabouts were down as low as they can get. We are handling business right up to date. There was an Inter ference owing to last week's storm but little at the port. We can't get the coal from tile line fast enough to sup ply it to the docks. We have about 750 cars of coal at the terminal at the present time, which is far below the normal amount of 3,500 cars which we could handle, if the yard were filled. There is no labor shortage. "The real difficulty comes from the fact that the coal is being held up on the line due to the storm. The coa comes from far distant points, and the snow and storm halted operation. In some of these shipping points much coal Is being held up, but with normal weather conditions, wo should be abl< to increase our shipments materially, "We are running below normal ship, ments now, but we have been doing so for some time. If transportation could be bettered we would be able to do more work in tho yards and on the docks." GAR UtnslLtl), Uflubto rlnt AT RAILROAD BUILDING As a result of η peculiar accident at 3:20 o'clock this morning, the tower shanty on the Lehigh \'alley railroad at the New Brunswick ave nue crossing was totally destroyed by Are, after having been overturned by a coal car which capsized while being drawn over the tracks at the storage grounds of the railroad, above the avenue. A stove in the shanty set the ruins afire after it had been turn ed over, and the fire department was called out to extinguish the blase. The derailed car was dragged for soma distance along the track before tho train was stopped. A wrecking crew righted It this morning. Dennis Dolan, flagman at the cross ing, was uninjured when the shanty, which was two stories high, was knocked over by the coal car. He rushed to a nearby telephone and called up polico headquarters and an alarm of (lie was sounded from box 63. When the firemen responded they found the shanty a mass of flames ana the earth at the side of the track ripped up by the overturned car. The flames were soon extinguished. The car was one of a train which w:is being drilled In the yard, and turned over on the slippers rails. As It passed the shanty, which was built on stilts, the supports wero knocked away and the building crashed to tho ground. The lighted stove was upset and the ruins immediately broke out Into flames. Dolan was not In the shanty at the time of the accident.

From the South Amboy docks, an official mado a somewhat more opti mistic statement than the officials of the other docks, saying that there was neither a shortage of coal nor of labor at the yard, or on the docks. He said, in part, "The shipment of coal from this port is going on normally. There is no shortage of coal to speak of, and we are working steadily with our shipments to the New York and other districts. "There Is no coal stored here other ' than what we need for absolute ship ment at the docks." He also denied I that there was a labor shortage, say ' ing that the labor situation did not 1 bother the South Amboy docks so much, owing to the fact that they op I erated with the huge machinery there, I which did away with considerable I man power.

Satisfied iiutt Ills order to close all saloons one week ago yesterday made the city drier and more law abiding than ever, and that the effect on the city was the best. Mayor TenBroc-ck on Saturday repeated his order to the I effect that all saloons In the city were to remain tight over Sunday, and this morning was equally satisfied that his more recont order had been obeyed. So was Chief Burke whose men were on the lookout for violations of the excise laws yeeterday, and reported no trouble In the city. The repetition of the mayor's order, which he Intends to stand for all time, again set the police to a close w*utch over places In the city which have been under suspicion for some time. These places apparently gave up the ghost when they discovered tho cloea wai-ch being observed, and business was at a standstill. Λ1! pa trolmen reported that the laws were being observed. Mayor TenBroeck said today that his order Is to stand, and that he In tends to keep at the matter until it is thoroughly understood that Perth Amboy is dry on Sundays and stays that way, for good and all. He sum med up the situation, saying, "If It ι can work for two Sundays, there Is I no reason why it cannot work for all j time." The police were suspicious of cer itain places and certain that if they 1 were not closely watched they would ! open up. These places were kept un 1 der a careful surveillance, but appar ently realizing the seriousness of the order, they gave up gracefully and closed up tight. In speaking of the situation last week one of the liquor dealers said that with the triple alliance of the mayor, the police and the board of 1 ercise commissioners all working to ! observe the law there was little chance for a man to break it, and he would certainly be riding- in the face of fortune if he dared to brave their edicts. He said that certain elements of the liquor trade welcomed the or der, as it mco-nt that they could close when they wanted to on Sundays and take a day off, whereas under the old order of things they were forced to keep open, clandestinely, by the fact that others did and thi> did not care to lose their trade.

'Orlovsky was equally reticent. 'From other sources, however, it was ; reported thai Scheidemann has been cloth* d with full powers by the Ger ! man government which had directed the peace angling at Stockholm, rather than at Brest. Litovsk, because proceedings at the latter place were subject to full publicity by the Bol sheviki The Brest-Litovsk confer ence of commissioners, representing the army of Germany and Russia will presumably continue irrespective of negotiations at Stockholm.
