IN HERALD CANYASS
Proportion 7 to 2 in Votes with Advo

The District of Columbia favors con

to the ballots cast in the Herald's poll
Thd ballots In favor of conscription
came from persons not only in the Dis
trict, but in parts of Virginia; but it was
noticeable that the proponents of uni
versal service In nearly all cases failed to
outline their reasons, merely relying on
the general public knowledge of the sub
ject to suffiee.
Andrew Law, of Haymarket. Va.. a
concsrlption advocate. said: "England
gave her best blood and then had to con
script her slackers. The United States
ought to have universal service."
Said George W. Stone, of 1234 Seventh
street northwest: "Count me in for con
scription. I have given two of my boys.
One is In the army and the other is in
the navy. They will help the cause
along. It *111 be a long time until I can
ill their places in my busgess."
"I have e, son somewhere in France,"
wrote another conscriptionist, 'with the
British expeditionary foree. He's been
there two years."

ballot: 'Absolutely NO NO NO o:"
Another wrote. "Until volunteers prove

"I am not in favor of conscription. I
will tell you why. I am a widow and

gardener, cook and anything that had
to be done on a small place. He has been
trying to go to school at the same time.
When the time comes when these boys

they will not have to be conscripted."
A man wrote: "I am oppobed to con
scription because it is contrary to the
freedom which is the essence of demo
cratic America. A country which goes
to war to crush Prussianism abroad
should not begin by establishing Prus
sianism at home."

FREIGIIT RATE INCREASE
FOUGHT BY SHIPPERS
Washington Chamber of Commerce
Files Protest at I. C. C. Hearing.
American shippers yesterday launched
a vigorous protest against an approxi
mate increase of 15 per cent in railroad
freight rates at a hearing before the In
terstate Commerce Commission.
A. i. Fisher. of the Washington Chan
ber of Commerce, spoke for the local
shippers, and while his arguiment.. were
not intended to show that the railroads
did not need the increase, he maintained
a speclfie increase would he fairer for
both road and shipper.
He contended his plan would increase
the revenues from $200,000 to possibly
5.-,000.000 annually, whereas the 15 per
Lcent plan would increase the revenues
from g800,000.00 to $00,0.0,000 annually.
