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
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
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
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

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,
