Assembling at This Point En-abled Rapid Transfer of Goods Abroad. 

Out on the Plank Road at Kearny, between Jersey City and Newark, just east of the Newark bridge, lies a tremendous mass of material that would have made the architect of Joseph's corn barns on the Nile sit up and take notice. Inside a barbed wire fence that runs along the plank road--that is no longer a plank road but a very modern city roadway--are piled great heaps of tank cars and boxed equip-ment, steel flat cars, under frames, crates of locomotive tenders with steel trucks and so on. 
On these meadows at Kearney, where the green marsh grass flows away in a sea to the north, and be-yond the old canal to the south, rise great factories and shipyards. Where the marshmallows bloom pink across acres of low lying meadow that once was considered of small value, was collected the engineering materials that, shipped to France, made it possible for the American expeditionary force to reconstruct the railways of that land and win the war.
These vast piles of materials con-stitute the present supply of the En-gineers' Depot of the Port of Em-barkation. It was established in July, 1917, to handle shipments of engineers' supplies shipped through this port to the expeditionary force in France. The goods, ordered by Washington from factories all over the country, were collected here and stored for shipment from New York or New Jersey piers.
Up to Jan. 1, 1919, there were 673,700 tons shipped from this yard overseas, and there are probably 200,000 tons there now. Some of these good are [[?]]

JAPANESE DIPLOMACY WINS OVER THAT OF THE BIG FOUR
By Gilbert Reid,
Director of International Institute of Shanghai, China.
Japanese diplomacy is great be-cause Japanese militarism is strong. Were it not that Japan has a well-trained army, an expanding navy and a controlling merchant shipping, Baron Makino would have been no[[?]] friend, ally and associate in the treaty of peace, secretly arrived at behind closed doors in the palaces of Paris and Versailles. Japan's military prowess was essential, but it was more than equalled by Japan's diplomatic finesse. 
When Japan in 1915 presented to President Yuan Shih Kai twenty-one demands, after overrunning the neu-tral territory of Shantung and forci-bly seizing and then claimng, and [[?]] of good form, he so overpowered Mr. Secretary Lansing that an exchange of notes passed between them in which neighbor China was to be as-sured again of her national auton-omy, integrity and existence, which incidentally, was to recognize for the first time in official documents that Japan has "special interests" and "prior position," not in Japan but in China. This was a sly hit at the Chinese that henceforth they were to have second place in China! Any-way, Ishii proved to the world that he was No. 1 diplomat, unsurpassed by American, European or even Chinese. 
The usual feature of Chinese diplo-macy through long centuries has al-ways been that of compromise. "You yield a food and I yield a foot," is a [[?]] been ranked among the Big Five, but afterward was not invited to the se-cret conclave of the Council, substi-tuting the Big Four for the Big Five. At the particular moment that Japan demanded for herself--not for China--all German rights in Shantung, there was no Big For but only the Big Three, for the Italian delegates had retired. 

Coerced the Big Four.
By hinting that Japan might also retire, and thus leave the League of Nations in danger of extinction, Japan got all that she wanted. No "reservation" on the part of the Chinese signature can alter what the treaty has determined. Japan can again say: "We have never been known to make a treaty 'a scrap of paper'"
