Vlass Meeting Held Yesterday Afternoon to Aid the Red Cross Campaign. Εtj/ Special Correspondent. SOUTH AMBOY, Dec. 17:—Not withstanding the inclement weather conditions a largo number of people attended the Red Cross mass meeting held at the Empire theatre yesterday afternoon. Company F Band, under the direction of their able director, H. B. Pateman, rendered several appro priate pdeces before the start of the meeting. City Solicitor Leo J. Coakley, who Ls campaign manago<r of this big drive to be conducted during this week, was chairman of the meeting. The first speaker of the afternoon was Hon. J. D. Nolan, who had come from a long distance to prosent the subject of Hod Cross work to tho people of this city. He came from Reading, Ρα. He declared that the present time is about the darkest crisis in the history of the world. He stated that former ly all people would speak of the effi ciency of the German people and their systems, but he said that the time has now come for every on ο to speak of tho efficiency of the Ameri can people. He stated that Providence can not do it all, but that we must all put our shoulders to the wheel in order tx> be successful. He said that the spirit of Rod Cross is the spirit that should be foremost in everyone's heart at this time. Those noble work ers who îlta erivine· t.hftir thr»ir i fortunes, yes, and even thoir lives if need be, doing the noblo work for therfr country, should not bo forgotten at this Christmas time. Ho declared that the reason for much of tho Germans success was that they all stood together for their country and after the declaration of war in that country nome of the places In Hamburg were seen to bo the scene of hustle and bustle even into the late hours of the night so that they may promote the every in terest that might win tho war for them. He declared tho next two months will mark the most critical time in this period of war, and in or der to do our part wo must sacrifice a few things or lose our national in dependence. He received much ap plause at tho conclusion of his re marks. The band then played In grand stylo another selection. Chairman Coakley thanked Mr. Nolan for his patriotic spirit. He Introduced as the next speaker Senator Ixiring Black of New York. Ho voiced as his first remark that everyone should be proud of their President Woodrow Wilson, the Army, the Navy, the men and the women, and especially the bravo lads, that have crossed tho seas, to make this nation a safe place for democracy. They are doing their part to write tho death warrant for the Imperial gov ernment in Germany. "W'c can best show our fidelity by service," he said, and "we can all do our part, of com posing of the Book of Mankind." The Red Cross, that Is covered with blood, is a light and warning, that there Is need for our help in this Avar. It is a light, without help acting as batteries to help furnish the light "Help make the Red Cross, at this Christmas time, the Trench Cross of Bethlehem," he said. He said that some of this coun try are letting their feet drag, in this important matter. He laid particular stress on the Socialist and Pacifists of this country who are doing much to wards injuring their national inda pendence. He made particular men tion of Senator LaFollette, who in the house of congress, denounced this country and its government rulings. He stated that on a meeting that he addressed some time ago, he was tell ing of the needs of the country and afterwards some one asked, how about your Senator LaFollette in Washington. He said the slogan of the Pacifists Is "Thou shalt not kill," but he said they never took into consid eration the collateral statement in the Holy Bible, which states that "Thou shall not permit thyself to be killed." Ho declared that it is human ity moulded with Christianity that sends the boys of this country across the waters to fight for us and our sur roundings." Mr. Black received a tremendous applause for liis wonderful talk and while he was serious at times, there were times when he would tell a few interesting legends aind stories that would cause laughter to como forth from everyone present. Director Pateman, of the band, then called up on his men to render another piece which was, as before, much appre ciated. Adrian Ijyon Speaks The chairman, after thanking Sen ator Black for his kind help in mak ing the meeting a succee, then intro duced one of this county's most popu lar residenit®, Hon. Adrian Lyon, of Perth Amboy. He first stated that he was Just admiring the spirit of patri nf t.h« neoOle of South Ambov In coming to the meeting on an after noon with such weaitiher conditions prevailing. He said that at every meeiting that he addresses he always tells them a faot which they should and do know, but that Impression is "wo are at war." That the Ameri cans do not realize this fart is shown by the fact that when he last visited the stores in New York and other large oitiee ho found people going about doing their Christmas shopping and spending their money foolishly, and instead of doing that they should sometimes lot their minds wander to far beyond the seas, where men are dying for the cause of freedom. He said "when the casualty list comes back from across the water it will show that some of our best friends and nation's youth have been killed, and we will then realize what it Is when we are forced to drape our homes in mourning. Wo will then know what war is." A,t this time the people of the audience were begin ning to realize the conditions as never before and some were deeply moved. "The colleges all over the country," the speaker said, "are at this time de pleted and the ranks of the army and navy are now flllod with the nation's ' best brains and college youths." A little illustration that found a place in the hearts of most of the people attending was remarked as follows: Mr. Lyon stated that ho had recently purchased a record for the victrola, known as "Little Boy Blue," and was pjaying it for the first time. The story of till θ little Boy Blue seems to be where tlhe boys in blue have been killed In battle and their small things at home were only serving as memo ries of the time when they were once with tfhem. He stated as the victrola stopped ploying the sounds of a wom an weeping was heard, and it was then that he remembered that elie was packing away the tilings that his I son had sent home after enlisting in the services of the country, lie stated that had it not been for the Belgluins at Lel«o and the ΙΎοηeh at Verdun, "God only knowe where this country ot oure and this city would be to night." He dec!aired for every hour this oovnutry spends one mJUlion dol kuft Tlhe add test <xf men is not GENERAL WEIGEL Massachusetts Commander Who Is Now on Duty in France. Brig. Gen. William* Weigei is com mander or tne Maseacnusetts troops now in France. He has had long ex perience in military affairs. Aiiat they would sacrifice to save .heir own homo but what would they sacrifice to save the homes of their neighbors and their country. This concluded the most successful meeting· of its kind with the Company V* Band playing as the throng rose to ζο out. Y.I jU NEWS There will be a meeting of the Y. M. H. A.
