Italy Day waa fittingly celebrated1 last night at Camp Rari.taa at Bon-, hamtown when 2,000 of ihe men em ployed at the coaatructioa camp lined; up behind a band of music and, with] liags flying·, marched to the strains or the national airs of the allied na-j tions to the arena, which waa recently; erected, where fitting· services and en tertainment to mark the occasion ofj the third anniversary of Italy's en trance into the war took place. In accordance with the President's proclamation, the Italian flag3 were ilown around the grounds of the camp throughout the day, and the spirit of the day impressed Itself on those who· ao*e employed at the camp and en thusiasm ran high by the time the ce!- ; ei>ration opened. Addresses were! made by the Rev. Wilbert Westeott, pastor of the Simpson M. E. church, and by the Rev. Colunibino Galassi, \ pastor at the Church of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, of this city.' Assistant Superintendent John T. Pryor acted as the m'arshal of the pa- ! rade, and Major Canard as master οι* ceremonies. Throughout the evening entertain-: ment was furnished by a tour piece; orchestra, songs by soldiers and selec tions from grand opera by Miaolla, an Italian tenor of New York. Among those present from this city were Ax-j bert Leon, John Pfaiffer and R. I. Vail. Great enthusiasm waa shown by Uie audience during the address of Mr. ; Westeott and throughout the address' they sprang to their feet and shouted hurrahs whenever the speaker touched upon points of a patriotic nature. Ih ! opening his address Rev. Westeott re-j ferred to the fact that we were cela- I brating rhe entrance of Italy into the' war and stated that her entrance Into ; the war was greater than any other nation, and that she cjiose the side or: right and just rather than that of ma- ] terial gain. He told how today ig the) darkest day in the history of the world j and that it was brought to pass by the : war made possible by the kaiser and, his war lords in order that they might be master?» of the land and sea. After speaking at length on the darkest day. he then pointed out that it; was also the brightest day in the history of the world, as it waa teach ing the practice of giving and unself ishness. It will mean a new union for Ymerica, one flag, one country and one language. "It means the dawn ing of victory, we are coming forth conquerors in this war." Ho brought forth the fact that the sooner the ! hyphen is dropped from the Ameri- ' can the better In the course of his remarks ; Father Gaiassi said: "It is a great! day for Italy. Three years ago Italy, I by her declaration of war, took a great step toward securing her own freedom and by breaking loose from the triple alliance threw ο it the yoke of Germany which was mounted on Italy's shoulders. By her declaration our native country showed great courage. We sho wed thiit this war is being waged not by the government but by the people, whose finer Italian feelings wère hurt by the deeds of tho Teutonic hordes. "We are fighting with justice and civilization and our sacrifices have ! not yet been duly appreciated. But. j President Wilson in his proclamation j has admitted the importance of Italy's participation in the war and Italy is goinr to stay and fight with the Allies for the final victory which is being assured by the United States through this country's participation. In concluding Father Gaiassi call ed particular attention to the Italian debt, to the Red Cross for their won derful work in Italy, and also spoke I on the effect the Red Cross had had I on the army of that country during ( the retreat from tin* Alpft when the) organization practically rejuvenated j and remade the Italian forces. He ' appealed to the men to support the! Red Cross and to contribute liberally ' I t<» the c.i iis«*. ' RESOLUTIONS FOU UPHOLDING PRIEST CContinued from page 1) and with the members of the society which is administrated by him, mak ing· an offer te the government to give 1 their convent Cor the use of wounded ! men coming from the battlefield of Europe, bearing all the expense which : is connected with the carc and board j of these wounded, going even so far as to employ an expert nurse, Sister of the Order. This offer has been ac cepted by the proper party. FIFTH: We declare that our pas tor purchased many tickets for the benetlt of the Red Cross, at the exlli- j bition given by the people of the Rar- ι itan Copper Works, in tlie Majestic | theatre, participating personally with | some of the members of his church. ! SIXTH: We dcclare now that the sermon of May 5tli, objected to by his criticisers. and enemies, and by the Perth Amboy EVENING NEWS, was really word for word the following "My dear people, I have been urged, connected with threats, to induce yo/ to join the so-called LOYALTY j LEAGUE. In this regard I very clear- | Iy will tell you my standpoint. In these days you have been asked to help the LIB EUT Y LOAN, and as th* | war costs money tho expectation that* you. should do your duty ia reasonable ! because the war costs money and ex penses must bo shared, and I am sure that in this line you have done your duty to every possible means, likewise, you will bo asked» in twe weeks, to contribute to your utmost possibility for helping the RED CROSS DRIVE And as the war brings wounded men by the hunt!red thousands they must be taken care of, therefore, I espect you, and am sure you will do your ut most, but, when you have done your duty regarding the LIBERTY LOAN and will do your duty regarding the RED €R< >83 Fund, I cannot be in (Uixsed, even by threats, to urge you to join tho LOYALTY LEAGUE as. long as it is organized so that the hun dreds and hundreds of dollars, con tributed by hundreds of my peopLe, should be used as wages for one or two men that would pose as leaders in Pa triotism, paid by your money; especi ally do I object to the payment of one hundred and fifty dollars ($150.00) monthly wages, to a man bft-ng out of work and used as secre tary for the LOYALTY LEAGUE; the same man is employed as agent for selling lots of the president of the LOYALTY LEAGUE. Patriotism de mands that we works unselfishly and not make money out of this Patriot ism. Also, I object because tilt: pres ident of the LOYALTY LEAGUE, himself, called it a humbug and a bluff. When he called on me, he told mc, "Father, now is the time of bluffs and humbugs we must also make some bluff and humbug." I refused to be connected with any one making such statements." These are the words of Father Gross' sermon and although it was given that way Cor the reporter for the EVENING NEWS, in the presence of witnesses,, as well as to Mr. Oievenger, Editor, Father Gross has been misquoted in tho paper. Possibly the EVENING NEWS had in mind an incident of a few years ago when a brutal attack on the Catholic, church was published in the EVEN- ! ING NEWS and when Father Gross ι demanded and received an apology for the same. We wish to have this statement of ι ours printed in a prominent place in I tho Perth Amboy EVENING NEWS ; as a refutation of the series of attacks j upon our pastor. We trust that the Perth Amboy ' EVENING NEWS will do us the jus- j tice of publishing this statement in · full; otherwise, we will be driven to ι mother expedient to la?- the case of I our pastor before the peopie of Perth Aim boy. We believe that Father Gross' case1 may be trusted to the integrity and I justice of the proper Federal Author ities and we deprecate the editorials of the NlfiwS which but serve to ex cite prejudice against our pastor and expose him to the insults of a few ig norant men. If Father Gross heard with a broken heart that his adopted country came into war condition» with his Mother Country he never fail ed to do his duty as an American 1 citizen. We do> not blame our pastor ι if he does not see it necessary to Join ! the LOYALTY LEAGUE, as he has! 11 ready shown his loyalty by becom- j ing a citizen as quickly as bo could, but, should there be a general law for every citizen to Join the Loyalty League he would do this aa well as any one, but. as lone as It is only intend ed for some way to escape suspicion of being "ΤΤΙί-ΑΜΈΚΤΟΑΓΓ* ho re gards It as an insult to his American Citizenship to bo criticised for not doing something that millions of citi zens do not do smd are not criticised for. We also want to have one copy of this RESOLUTION sent to the FED ERAL authorities as well as a copy to the head of the Dioeewe of Trenton, and hope by stating the case of our pastor, Rev. Francis Gross, in a pub lic light he will not fail to have the re spect of the City of Perth Amboy. but through his unselfish way of working will have the rcopect of his church as well as the Civic Authorities of Perth Amboy, he enjoyed so happily for many years. The above statement is our true sen timents and for which we give our signatures, as well as our willingness to stand for in any place. Perth Amboy, N. J., May 22, 1913.
