rfMlE DRAFT IN GEORGETOWN, D. C._
Mayor's O?ee. Geortetwn. D. C , Aug. 27,1>U.4.
Those citizen? of the town who are subject to
the approaching0raft to furnish soldier? for our
army, end who desire to avoid that service, are in
vited to join in the following seif insuring
Every citizen who is liable to be drafted can de
posit the sum of One Hundred Dollars in the B?nk
of Commerce. The whole som so deposited will
constitute a fund for the etc! isive benefit of those
of thedepositors wbn may he drafted
The scheme will work thus : Should there be one
hundred depositors, for instance, and only twenty
of them be drafted, eighty wool?' be protected
from service by paying one hundred dollars each,
while the whole ten thousand dollars would be
distributed in sumsoffive hundred dollars each to
the twenty who were dra'ted. With that they
could obtain substitutes or keep the mouey and go
into service, at their own option.
Of course the real result will be so varied from
the one here given as an illustration as to make it
more or less beneficial te the drafted parties ; but
there is this absolute certainty about it: that
every drafted man will g?? ? whole of his money
back, with the almost equal certainty of more
than deuble that sum, and a probability of his re
ceiving a suns of notb ss than five hundred do'Jars.
In this achem?; there can be no juggling, no pre
cedence of favorite individuals, or truks played
off upon the unsuspecting. There will te* but two
well ascertained parties: those who escapo the
draft and lose their hundred dollars, an! these
who are drafted and get all t?e money deposited
by the whole association. _

work any particular hardship to one of the de
