At 8 a. m. to day, with a rough sea r j tuirig and a moderate soiithvest breeze blowing, her bew had swung 150 feet sho-t— -waid. Hithe-to the had been lying broadside to the teach. The weath er conditions at 8 o'clock were not ' considered .amiable to the transfer i of ln< troops. Vice-Admiral Gleaves to-day issued I the following statement: "The Northern Pacific is in no im- ' mediate danger, and until there is a change of wind from the westward iio attempt will be made to trans fer those on the ship. Such trans fer, if it is made to-day, will prob ably be to other ships standing by." A icvised list of troops on board was issu'-d /• sterday afternoci. shoving taal in the Armv and Navy personnel wore 2,480 officers and men and nurses, the latter numbe-- ii.g seventeen hlie officers and crew of the Norths*p Pacific number ab*vi r.3'.

After an unsuccessful attempt had been made to-day to drag the Amer ican transport Northern Pacific from the sandbar on which she grounded , off Fire Island early Wednesday I morning. Navy officials here an nounced plans for removing the 2,480 | troops to vessels standing by at 2 t o'clock this afternoon, if weather ! conditions were favorable. Announcement that both the wounded and well soldiers.aboard the stranded transport 'Northern Pacific were being transferred both to res cuing vessels and the shore in small j beats was made at 12.30 o'clock to day by Brigadier General McManus, 1 of the port of emberkation at Ho- Voken. Four more lifeboats tilled with sol diers arrived from the Northern Pa cific soon after, while four other ! boats, all belonging to the transport, j filled with members of the crew, left I the ship for the outlying rescue ves- ! sels. j State Man on Boat One of the first four ashore was I Lieutenant Joseph Logan Wilton, I whose home is in Pennsylvania. As | soon as they were landed, the soldiers | wer e taken immediately across the I narrow islund to the flotilla of small i boats waiting to carry them across j Great South bay to Bay Shore, seven | miles away. Meantime the lifeboats and the coastguard boat returned I for more troops. In Best of Spirits Tile first men to land declared the \ stranded troops were in the best of j spirits. One said that when lit- i transport grounded early yesterday i morning the men thought thev reached Hoboken and went on deck to j look at the harbor. Some of the | troops did not know, lie said, that the Northern Pacific had gone ashore un til after breakfast, several hours later. While the troops were being loaded into the lifeboats alongside, the | Northern Pacific's band was playing j lively airs.

Gilpin, a nephew of State Librarian Thomas Lynch Montgomery, to his father. He says the army had a "July Fourth celebration every night" and liis part in the eounter-oftensive of July 18 is as full of thrills as one Friday, Nov. 29, 1918. Dear Dad: This coming Sunday is to be "Dad's Day" in the A. E. F. when all the boys are supposed to write to their fathers describing their ex periences. As the censorship regula tions have not permitted us to say anything of interest heretofore, I am going to take advantage of the lift ing of the ban and shoot you an earful so you can tell what has been happening to your young hopeful since he left the shores of God's country. We landed at Liverpool on the Hth of May. 1 think it was. We were in Liverpool for about thirty six hours and were then packed on trains and went across Englund to Folkestone, which was quite a sea side resort on the Channel before the war. The trip was made across England during daytime and also the most beautiful time of year. We stayed all night at Folkestone and from there went to Dover where wo embarked and landed at Calais a couple of hours later. We then went to what the British call a rest camp why, heaven only knows, and that night, our first in France, we were treated fo our first experience of air raids. We stayed in Calais three days and were then treated to our first experience of riding in box cars labeled "Homines 4 0 Cheraux 8." Wo traveled all day and night and landed at place called Henne veux which is about 15 kilos from Boulogne. It was there that I went to a British machine gun school. We were there two weeks and then hiked three days to Hesdin where we entrained and rode two days and nights to Xantouillet, which is about 30 ki os outside of Paris and on the outskirts of Meaux. We were there about ten days and always had a July 4th celebration every night, as it was the time when the Boche planes bombed Paris and they flew directly over us, both coming and going. From there we went in Camions, known in the states as auto trucks and in England as lor ries to Artonges, which was directly behind the line in the Campagne front. In this particular sector the Boche line was on one side of the river and the Allies on the other. We then started taking our regular turn in the line by relieving the French. Everything was pretty quiet at that time as everyone was waiting the coming of the Boche offensive. Trench warfare of that kind is not so bad. As long as you are careful and don't expose yourself you are all right. On July 14, however, tilings took a different turn. The Boche laid down his hurrage at midnight and came over at 4.30 a. m. You know of course, what the result was and it really was that scrap, officially known as the second battle of the Marne. which turned the tide in INTREPID GAIDAr AND MEN DESTROY BOLSHEVIK ARMYj Czecho-Slovak General Takes ; 111,000 Prisoners; Lenine Escapes From Train By Associated Press Vladivostok, Jan. 2.—ln capturing Perm, in the Ural mountains. Gen- ; ' eral Gaida, at the head of Czecho- I Slovak and Siberian forces, virtu ally destroyed the Bolshevik third j army from which he took 31,000 j prisoners. General Gaida's troopsi I captured an armored train from 1 I ' which Nikolai Lenine, the Bolshevik | i Premier, was directing operations !in the region of Perm. Lenine him self escaped, hut several members! i i of his party were taken prisoners, j The exploit of General Gaida in! ' capturing Perm parallels his success j 'in the campaign of last summer, i His superiors opposed his plan of at tack against Perm and lie carried out' ' the operation at the risk of removal j j from his command. The bulk of his J j force was made up of Siberian ] ! troops, but he had two regiments of I j Czechs in his army. in addition to the 31,000 prisoners j reported, General Gaida captured 5,- j | 000 railway cars, 120 field guns, 1,-j I 000 machine guns, thirty automo- \ j biles, an entire wagon transport, sev- ; eral trains and several thou ; sand horses. His maneuver was a ! complete surprise to the Bolshevik, j i as proved by the fact that the cap | tured several prominent Soviet lead- | ! ers at the headquarters of the Third Bolshevik army. Ten Bolsheviki reg- j intents are declared to have been an nihilated and the rest of the enemy army was driven across the Kama, river. Troops of General Semenoff, the anti-Bolshevik leader in the Chita | district, have occupied Verkhni I L'dinsk, on the Siberian railway, east of laike Baikal. Two hundred thousand Russian soldiers released from German pris ons are expected to pass through; Omsk within a fortnight. The Rus sians are destitute and in a serioys condition from exposure and lack of ' fcod. ' ' favor of "the Allies. Wo were in the thick of the tight for those three days and then took part in the coun ter-offensive of July 18tb. We went forward through Chateau Thierry to Courmont where the Boche stood and it took four days to dlrve Hint out. From there on to Sergy and Seringes, where one of the bloodiest scraps took place that American troops participated. Sergy was taken and retaken nine times before it finally remained in our hands. 1 had probably the most thrilling time in that pluce 1 ever had. Every time our infantry attacked I took up two machine guns and placed them in a cellar, the window of which was flush %vith the ground and command a tine view of the main street up which the Boche had to come. Each time the Boche drove us out we had to cart our guns out too. The last time the Boche attacked he came in from three sides and we had no way to get out. All )ve could do was to lay low and pray. Fortunately he did not have time to search ttie houses or else he would have had us but he had all he could do to strengthen his defenses. In about two hours our Infantry attacked again and flnal'y drove the Boche out entirely, much to my relief. From there we went forward ; through Coban, Dravegny, meeting j little resistance until we hit the j Vesle Hlver in front of Fismes. it I was twenty-one days before wo could I get across that stream and we lost a lot of good men during that time. This brings us up to the first week in September. We finally were able to cross the river and it was on the outskirts of a little town called Bas lieux that a Boche sniper put a bul let through the calf of my leg. It was just a slight scratch and just necessitated a first aid dressing. I don't believe I mentioned this be fore. On about the Bth of Septem ber the division was relieved and it was on that day before that I got | my dose of mustard gas. We left the line and hiked for two days back to I Chatillon-sur-Marne where we were ! loaded into trucks and came through to Vassincourt ,a little village north of Bar-le-Duc, which is about fifty ] kilos directly south of Verdun. We i were there for four days and we f thought we were going to get a fine j rest when we got orders to move j again. My leg was stiff by this time I and I couldn't bend it and the gas ! burns were bothering me, so at the j end of the first night's hike which took us to Vabeoourt I knew it was • only a question of time before I was ! carried back, so I decided to go to j the hospital While 1 could still walk, j I was sent to Evacuation Hospital ; No. 9, at Vaubecourt where 1 met (Chaplain Booth and from there down t to the base at Beaune. That covers, I think, as well as I ' know the history of my tour of • France. There is a whole lot of it j that I want to see before I go back |to the states. 1 hope to get leave , when I am relieved here to get down jon the Mediterranean and see what j it is like. The address of this place i is slightly changed, as you see below. ' Take care of yourself and give my ] love to everyone. Affectionately, EDMUND. I Convalescent Camp No. (!, Hospita' Center, A. P.

Five hundred persons implicated in the plundering, which is said to have been going on for the past six | weeks, have been apprehended and ' much of the stolen property recov i | ered. The former Emperor's warden succeeded in bringing the bulk of j the imperial art treasures to a place i of safety after the flight of the Em | pcror. The wardrobes of the former i Emperor and his wife were almost 1' entirely denuded of their contents. In one of the former imperial dress ingrooms the old uniform of a sol ! d'er was found. Its owner had ex j changed his uniform for Imperial | raiment and disappeared. ' The damage 10 the palace as a re su't of the bombardment was com- I paratively slight. The marines now | have vacated the castle and taken up their quarters in the former roy j al stables. | The ambition of five American sol ; diets to be the first of the American j Expeditionary Forces to reach Ber lin is likely to have serious results ] for theni. j The men, wjio arrived here Sun day, were attached to the One Hun ! dred and Twenty-fifth Infantry Reg- I iment, now at Cobienz. They were | absent without leave and unexpect ! edly ran into members of the Amer i ican military commission now nere | in connection with the repatriation of | prisoners. One of the men has been j captured and is being detained, while the Berlin police are seeking the oth er tour.

HAKRISBURG TELEGRAPH TAKES WALK ON BERLIN STRASSE Harrisburg Soldier Writes of Life in Interesting Old Town Samuel Phillips, writing to his j father. Dr. C. E. Phillips, of this: city, tells of conditions following the 1 war in Prance and says the "Huns' had ererything in the world to tight the war for a hundred years," ex cept men. His letter follows: Montme'dy. le 10 Dec., 191S, •No. 11, Kronprlncen Strusse, (Boulevard de le Montme'dy.) Dearest Polks: Class, eh? I should say so. At last I have come into my own. A real live city, stores and every thing. Yesterday I saw civilians and inhabited towns for the first time since September 13. Can you imugine that? Been at the front for that long. But. early yester day, morning, before daybreak, we broke camp and started. We cov ever about eighteen miles by dark when we arrived here. We live in an immense old house, four stories in height and must contain nearly one hundred rooms. Everything is made line. Marble window sills, glass door knockers, marble fire places, line paper on the walls, great, full length mirrors with gild edges, and a million and one other things that denote "cluss." This town was held by the Ger mans for four years, the last of them leaving the 17th of last month. All the civilians stayed here during the occupation and were forced to cater to the Huns. Everything in the stores is Dutch. Small German sol diers for the children, post cards with pictures of the Germans, etc. The streets, as you see, were re named for the Huns. At the back of the city is the tremendous Fort of Montme'dy. It played an important role in the early days of the war. I want to go through it and will tell you more about it then. Just at the foot of the great mountain on which the fort is placed is a German prison camp, now being used as barracks for our men. 1 sure would have hated to have been held by the bar barians. It is strange, but the more I see of the Huns' strategy, the luckier I think ourselves for their early de feat. Except for men, they had everything in the wold needed to tight this war forever. Their ma chine gun and artillery emplace ments were absolutely impregnable if they would have had the men to hold them. The French think that the battles of Verdun licked the Ger mans. It was there that the flower of the German army, as well as the French, was lost. Will close for this morning and go next door to the lady barber for my shave, then to the "Cafe'de le American" (mess hall) for lunch, after which I will add more. To continue my story 1 want to say to tiie men folks that it sure is a good thing the war didn't hit us hard enough to make the wo men become barbers, i don't be lieve the French men will ever get their trade back. I get shaved every morning now instead of three times a week. Aho, before I forget, just before leaving the front I received on last Friday the first box of candy from Wanamaker's in London. On Sun day I received the second box, a pound of nuts, from London and on Tuesday 1 received my Christinas j box. So you see it was some big I week. it sure tastes good when all you have to eat is corn beef and hard tack. I am going to take time ! out now and get a chocolate cookie. They sure are the great stuff. Had a card from Margy the other day. 1 sure do appreciate all the little remembrances, including the handkerchiefs. They are the first 1 change I have had since I came over. Almost as soon as I got to France 1 lost all but the one hand kerchief I had in my pocket and that one I have ifbed About time for a change. Most of the people in the city speak German, so with u little German mixed with the little Eng lish they know. 1 speak as fluently as though 1 was home. It is a ter rible sounding language, but they understand it. As you know, or don't know, my German is fairly good and so when 1 meet a person who speaks high German I get along very well. 1 took a walk this morning out Berlin Strasse. to Kronprinz Boule vard and then over to Kaiser Platz. This is in the great residential sec tion. The people dress very well, you would almost think yourself at home except for the number of sol diers, most of them French, who may be seen in the streets. Am hunting some appropriate Christmas gifts, that don't cost a fortune und am having trouble to find them, but if I do you will get them sometime between Easter and Fourth of July. You can realize how shortly the Germans left here when 1 tell you that when I bo't this papier 1 askeu • Cambien?" the girl said "Wie vlel." I said "Yah." She said "Une Sou." Then I gave her a franc and she gave me 5 pfennig in change. Half Dutch, half French. Well, remember me to all. SAMUEL. Am still well, happy and fat.
