A sense of victory Is In tn cards that havo most recently como over In .thy soldiers' mall; It Is not put Into ' open writing, for In .that case It prob ably would 'bo dejeted by the. censor, but It Is there, all tho same, though Inter polated with care. The soldiers feet that tho spirit of the German army has been broken beyond patching and It Is on this they base their absolute confi dence that the "Hun Is done." At the same, time although tho daes of these cards are recent, comlnjr down to the time, when the' Interchange of let ters for peace first began, tho soldiers do not say this time a word about their return. A few weeks befoio they were declaring that they would be taking oft their caps to Liberty ions beforo New Tear'n "Hoboken and home by Christroas"i was their slogan In the early days of September. In October this Is all cut out and no predictions are made, It Is s If their officers had told them to try to appreciate the difficulties In the way of a quick demobilization and tho ob stacles In Uio way of embarcatlon and transport. It has not made any of the boys de spondent; they are as gay and as eager s' at Hrst. They went over to do a cer tain thing and they are willing to stay until It Is done. But In tho meanwhile thoy wantthelr tobacco. The boys do not hesitate to say that "Send it along," they say, "until we advise you when to stop. Send it along for the holidays turet" , The American soldiers havo no hesi tation In saying what they want, for they know the mass of the people here want to give them what they want, and the first word that comes to the lips of a soldier In answer to the ques tion "What do you want us to send you for Christmas?" Is "Tobacco." If It were necessary for -The Bun Tobacco Fund to make a real propa ganda about soldiers' holiday smokes there would bo one best one way to begin it, toocontlnue It and to end It. That wsyits by publishing tho cards Hnd letters sent over by the men them reives. They vary so, tbey are so In dividual, that nobody can truthfully feel bored by reading them ; nobody at least whojdnres for human beings, and par ticularly fori tho soldier Und, A few of these cards, all about to bacco, and- tho soldiers' hopes for a big holiday supply follow: "Let me havo the pleasure of ex pressing the thanks of myself and twenty .comrades hero In the hospital who havo all enjoyed the smokes sent over.- Ve havo only a limited way of thanking you, nothing in fact except to say that we are all .fighting and fight ing on for you and your kind of people back home after we are practically at the end of our endurance.

And that's tobacco." Sergeant .1. A. Parrott of Company V. 14Ttli Infantry, sends a card tn Lloyd .lui'ksoii: "Many thanks for the Durham tobacco which we are smoking now, I went to a town about two miles from where my company Is stationed and In a pouring rain to buy somo smokes for my platoon, as wo had been hitting the trail hard. "Then a box was handed roe and In the box 1 found this card, I thank you for sending the tobacco." Vinson Scptt of the Ninety-fourth Aero Sqiiadion sendH his gratitude to Loulso Morgan In these words: "Thanks very much fur your donation to The Si-n Tobacco Fund, which made It posslhlo for me to receive from you a token In real tobacco. I ran assure you that I was very nrnicli delighted with this gift, us v?c find our share of tobacco very short at times ' It Is certainly nice for you people back home to remember us In this way, mid I for one wish to express my Blncere appreciation." rienrg C Wagner on October 17 wrote to the E.

"Your ciga rettes were received at the front to-day by the medical detachment: the gift was tcry apprnprlnto and acceptable and wo wlsh to extend our most heartfelt appre ciation." 1iuls Mann, one of the stars In Kirn "Friendly Enemies," heart I' I IM'' n.- Moyer, who ays "It r from Jlalph sure neips to keep up a fellow's spirits to get some tobacco from the good old V.

In, nearly every case where a name unfa miliar iu win sinuse iiiiiu Hiipeari. on lei- ter nnd check the formula used Is : "We want the boys to have a good I holiday and wc know tills means plenty of smokes." Do they really know what "plenty of smokes" means when' It comes la sup plying our vast army over In France? The soldiers have told how .they hus band the tobacco and how glad they are when after "Investigating their pockets for the remains of a bag of. tobacco or the crumbling of a few cigarettes Tim Sun Fund distribution comes along and puts' them on Easy street again." To keep them there "en .Easy street" is beyond the power of this most gener ous of all funds for their comfort: that is easy to appreciate it one will but re call how many soldletjs aro In Europe, but of course the fund has never yet ad mitted It was Impossible. Mut Ibis mak ing a tremendous efTort to eend over enough tobacco rufthat alt1 the American soldiers,' shall feel free to smoke on Christmas and New Year's as much to bacco as he cares to. That can be done with the prompt and generous response of donors. Send along your glfls now, don't wait until you have a bigger sum; what you send wilt go, Into the Christmas fund and you can supplement your gift later. One enemy Tub Sun Tobacco Fund Is fearful of, that is time. If we do not get the money promptly the aim of everybody Interested will be defeated. That aim Is to get plenty of emokes over eo that the soldiers can treat themselves to tobacco on tho coming holidays with out stint. It Is pleasant to say that the fund has heard from Tut Sun tobacco boxes placed for the reception of coupons and certincates in tho Schulte and United cigar' stores. A great number were taken yesterday to be counted, and these will be soon transformed Int6 money that will buttress up tho holiday smoke fund.

SUFF LEADERS HAPPY Liveliest Fight Centres in Con test Mndo by Mrs. Lilly for Assembly. The lady .tiger was first at the polls In tho Babcock Studios, In the Tenth Election district of the Fifteenth As sembly district, yesterday morning. She was Mrs. Veronica Tammany of 30 West Fifty-fourth street, and 'though living In a strong Republican district she proved true to her name by voting a stralgrlt Democratic ticket. This polling place, by the way, is a shining tnonuinent to the refining in fluence' of woman in politics. Cltlxens In that election district havo always been content to cast their ballots in a shop that was much too -.small and not very clean. 'When the ladles came In the Republican captain, Theodoslus Stevens, and tho Democratic captain YienU to Mlssj Mary Garrett Hay, big boss of the New York City Woman Suf frage party, and said to her, as man to man, that that place was no fit place for Mrs. New Voter. Together the three moved upon the Board of Elections, to tho end that yesterday there was a grand and commodious polling place on the street floor of the Babcock Studios at 19 East Forty-ninth street. Cap Stevens1 bought a dollar's worth of heavy pink paper to protect the parquetry floor, and Introduced tho fur ther Innovation of having a young woman fetand at the door to give In coming voters numbered tickets, so they needn't stnnd In line, but could sit comfortably nnd wait till their number wus called out. Haft Leader Wins Praise. John Rockefeller, Jr., and Mrs. Rocke feller dropped In at 19 East iForty nlnth street to cast their ballots, while Miss Hay was there on her tour or In spection, and Mr. Rockefeller shook bands nnd congratulated the suff leader. Several well known Democrats voted there about that time, including Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Untermyer. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Nixon, Mgr. Iavelle of .it. Patrick's and George McAneny. Mrs. I.I I las Rebarcr, who worked on the Al fred E. Smith citizens' committee, was also one of the voters there. Miss Charlotte. Delnfleld Is suffrage leader In this Assembly district, but as sho Is In France Mrs, Laurens Carroll acted in her place. The Surfs had watchers outside -the polls everywhere. Miss Hay estimated that 1,000 women were acting In this capacity throughout the greater city. Their function was to Instruct bewildered women who didn't know how to vote, but there were few of those. Some were slightly flabbergasted Dr ln rma ana canal amendments pre- eciiieu uii t. nciiumiQ uaiiui, raying iney hadn.t ejtpecte But , the nev voters whelhcr actlnB ,. spectors (and there were two women Inspectors at least In every polling place) or as watchers or Just plain voters acted as matter of fact as they would cooking dinner In their own kitchens. Soma much more so, perhaps. And the women, came.out At polling place aftir polling- Pisco along in the middle of the afternoon when the ques- tlon was asHed : "What s th Dronortlon or women to men7 tho answer was: "Fifty-fifty. They spilt even, as many women as men." Later when shops and ofllces closed more men came. The reg. lstratlon for this election In Nw York city was 600.029 men and 414,760 women, but Miss Hay was strong in the , .. . . , - "-omen were more serious about following up their registration by voUng than men and that there would be "ttlo discrepancy between the sexes . "t the polls to-day. But of course that w'll never be known exactly, for the 'Suffs don't care to undertake the task of going over all the books to weed out the women voters, ' Women Lead at rolls. In some districts uptown women far outnumbered tho males. At 80 .Morning. elation, and Miss Hay of the Cltv Partv voted at ten minutes to nine at 507 Co lumbus Avenue, going there on their way to market. "It took mn Just two minutes to vote." Mrs. Catt said after she left the booth. "I labored thirty years and went thous andsof dollars to get that vote, and I cast It In two minutes. There might bo a difference of opinion as to whether I voted widely, but I can testify that It was worth all my work to be able at last to express my opinion like a frco citizen In a free country." Both loaders on their way to the polls said they would vote for Gov. Whitman. He a stood behind ua In the suffrage fight and we'll stand behind him," they said. And Miss Hay was going to vote for 1'red Tanner for Congress because tie and sho used to play In the sam back yard. Miss Hay Indeed declared that she voted tho straight Republican ticket, -but Mrs. Catt said after voting that she had changed her mind suddenly whllo In the booth. Tho liveliest district In all New York was tho Seventh Assembly, where Mrs. Mary M. Lilly, woman lawjer, leader In the City Federation of Women's Clubs, &-c ran for tho State Assembly on tho Democratic ticket. Mrs. Lilly voted for herself and the other "Dems" on the ticket about S A.

The lifting of the official bah and the granting of all night licenses to nineteen restaurants and cabarets, most of them In the heart of the theatre district, gave New Yorkers an' opportunity last 'night to celebrate the election as In days of old. Thousands, tbVonged tho various establishments eating, drinking, singing, cheering and making merry In as up roarious a fashion as the city has seen for years; Prior to Mayor Gaynors administra tion election night doings knew little restraint. Mnyor Oaynor Issued many licenses which required the holders to shut up shop at 2:30 A. M. After Mayor Mltchel assumed office a deputation of restaurant proprietors called upon him, and at the 1917 election he agrped to extend the closing hour to 3 :30 A. M. The extra hour was obtained by the ar gument that when Oaynor was Mayor the "dance erase was in its Infancy and that even the giddiest of pleasure seek ers wero willing to call it a night and quit around 2 :30. t News that the lid was off In the caba rets spread along Broadway with 're markable rapidity last night. As early ns 10 o'clock the cabarets were Jammed with flushed and noisy crowds. The list of establishments granted all night licenses by tho Police Commis sioner follows: Tho Palais Royal, 1190 Broadway; George Rector's, 1592 Broad way, the.

Ap parently the election counted little In their young lives.

One soldier was induced by some one to sit in it. Tho crowd, paying little uttmtlou to the election figures on tho hcreen, be. gan cheering the veteran. Ho stood it, looking the embodiment of embarrass ment for a few minutes, and then left his place. At most of the bulletin board places the Intervals between arriving figures wero enlivened by pictures of flags, sol dlers and President Wilson thrown upon the screen. These always evoked the wljdest cheering, particularly the flag nf Italy. And outside of the newspaper of flees the war maps and bulletins of the world news claimed thick crowds of peoplo In every case. MRS, STOKES FREED ON REDUCED BAIL Warned Against Voting After Case Over Regis! ration Is Adjourned. Magistrate McGeehan granted yester day a continuance until Friday of the case against MPs. Rose, Pastor Stokes, who was arrested Monday night at her home at 88 Grove street dn a charge of Il legally registering for tho election. Her bajl was reduced from 13,000 to J1.500, but both tho court and her attorney ad vised her not to vote and told her that It she did so It would be at her own risk. Immediately after Mrs "stokes was ar rested she was taken to the Night court, where Magistrate Marsh admitted her to ball for hearing. When she whs brought before Magistrate MrGeehan In the Jrr ferson Market court Alfred L. Becker. Deputy State Attorney-General, quoted Section 11. "i of tlm Penal Code In support of his contention that a person who had been convicted of a felony forfeited the right of ballot. Ho also declared that Section 752 mado It a felony for such persons to register or vote. He asked for a forty-eight hour adjournment to give the people time to prepare their case, but this motion was denied, George M. Oilman, who appeared for Mrs. Stokes, said he could provo that court decisions had been rendered which gave an adverse Interpretation of tho law to that expressed by Mr. Becker. Ho argued that conviction In a Federal court uf nn offense not recognized as a felony under the New York law did not bar one from otlng here. "The people should bo prepared." said th court in granting an hour's iiiljouni- "I think It wa.s absolutely wrong to arrest this woman on the eve of elec tion when the crlnm sho Is alleged to have commlttedr took place on October 12." When tho heurlng was resumed the prosecution was rcenforred by W. J. Drlscoll and Robert M. Johnson of tho District Attorney's office and Dr. Fred erick L. Marshall, State Superintendent of Elections. After a consultation Mag iMrato McGeehan announced a contln uanco until 10 o'clock. Friday to give tho lawyers on both sides an oppor tunity to prepare nnd present briefs. "Why. this postponement practically forbids Mrs. Stokes to vote, ns I wouldn't liif enarge ne nismisen. "If you don't wnnt tho postponement we may an well thrash out tho whole matter here and now," returned the court. Hut the attortie.is for the people ob jected to this uud tho cmitinuunre was finally iigreed upon. Magistrate Mc Geehan nnd the lawyers on both sides warned Mrs. Stokes what a serious thhig it might be If sho tried to vote. BATZ?NJiJ. R. T.

City Hall heard yesterday that Mayor Hylau was preparing a reply to the at tacks of Travis It. Whltnei'. Public .Ser vice Commissioner, but word finally came from his offlco that there would be no statement. Whitney's Undented Charge, Mr. Whitney has charged the Mayor with itrcvenllng, by opposition or Inac tion, tho carrying out of plans that would Mayo compelle'd the B. 71. T. to use steel Instead of wooden cars; with having sought and obtained favors from the company when ho was a County Judge; with having had advance notice of tho motormen's strike nnd failing to use his influence toward averting It ; and with being disqualified to sit as Magis trate In the wreck Investigation because ho himself was discharged by the B. B. T. for the same offenco attributed to Motorman Iewis running a train around a curvo too fast. In the John Doo hearing before the Mayor Monday It was made known that the complaint not only says that the train crew was Incompetent and Inex perienced but that the road bed and track at the place where the wreck oc curred wero improperly constructed. In this relation It developed yesterday that experts employed by District At- Morncy Lewis and the Tubllc Service Commission have been studying the curve where the train Jumped tho track to see If It was properly laid out and the outer rail adequately elevated. Bor ough President Illegclmann raised this question on Saturday. Safe for HO Miles nn Hour. Chairman Hubbcll of the Public Ser vice Commission said the commission's engineers deemed tho curve safe for thirty miles an hour, the maximum speed of subway trains. Itobert Rldgway, tho commission's chief tunnel engineer, said tho construction at the Malbone street tunnel was entirely B. R T. work, both In planning and construction, and that the curve was laid according to the best modern engineering practice. "The radius was about 240 feet," he said, "and the angle less than 41 degrees The outer rail was a super elevation. There wero slowdown signs before the curve was reached, there were lights at night, and, -as I am Informed, there wero Inner guard rails." When the Mayor's hearing Is resumed at 11 A.

ASK MAYOR FOR HEARING Changes Will Result in Profit to City nn,d Will Not Incrcaso Taxes. The plan .put forward for Improved pier facilities and general port terminals Improvement by Murray Hulbert, Com missioner of Docks, has enlisted the ac tive support of A. It. Smith, Regional Director. Eastern ncglon, In th United States rtallroad Administration: C. H. Markham, Regional Director, Allegheny Ueglon, and II. B. Walker, Federal man ager for the Railroad Administration of the coastwise steamship lines. These Federal officials have been so thoroughly Impressed with the practical side of Commissioner Hulbert's pro gramme that they have asked Mayor Hylan and the Sinking Fund Commis sion to hold a meeting as soon as pos sible for the consideration of the Com missioner's Ideas. Their I.ettrr to Hylan. In a letter addressed to the Mayor and the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund Regional Directors Smith and Markham and Federal Manager Walker made the following statement and request : 'The undersigned held an Informal conference upon the Invitation of the Commissioner of Docks for the purpose of considering several matters affecting tho transportation, Including steamship facilities, iu the port of New Tork. Its Importance to the port and to the city is so great that we believe a general policy must be laid down, and suggest that progress to this end can best be made by arranging a meeting with your board at an early. date for that purpose." Heretofore Commissioner Hulbert has had they backing of the United States Shipping Board, of Franklin D. Roose velt and of Major-Gen. George W. Goe thals, but now Jie .goes before tho ruling powers of the city with the direct sup port of he Federal agencies most Inter ested In transportation Improvement. With this support the Commissioner, as was pointed out yesterday, will be able to refute statements that his Improve ment plan Is merely a "dream." The former president of the New York Cen tral Railroad, A. H. Smltln ndw the head of the United States Railroad Adminis tration In the East, and his colleague of the Allegheny district and of the steam ship management are exceedingly prac tical men, When they appear before the Mayor and the Sinking Fund to ad vocate Hulbert's Ideas the accusation of Impracticability Is pretty sure to be dropped. Little by little forces of public opinion are rallying to the Hulbert plan, par ticularly since tho Commissioner made It clear that" his plan is a self-supporting programme which would not Increase the city debt but which, on the rontrary, would Increase revenue. All that Is re quired to put the plan in operation Is the consent of the Sinking Fund Commis sion, Including the approval of the Mayor and the Comptroller and tho approval of thi Board .of Estimate. Thereafter the Commissioner would be free to put Into effect tho results of many years study of port needs and the results of actual experience as the head of the dock sys tem. Trio Ortataolca He Faced. He has had two main obstacles to con tend agaln't. Tho first objection raised was that the United States Government was Inimical to large programmes of local Improvement at this time. Com missioner Hulbert met this objection with letters of approval for his plan from the Shipping Board and the Rail, road Administration. He has also. It was said yesterday, the support of Will iam G. McAdoo, Secretary of tho Treas ury and DlreVtor-General of Railroads. He can go to the Mayor and the Sinking Fund with the definite statement that the United States Government, urgently favors the Improvements he suggests. The second objection was on the score of expense. He was told at the outset that the city was In no position to ap propriate $20,000,000 or so no matter how badly Improvements wore needed ; that the debt limit would not stand such encroachments. To this tho Commis sioner replied by proving he need not touch the dbt limit at all, since he could make his Improvements self-supporting and nctualy profitable. This evidence has brought about a change of attitude at the City Hall, it was said yesterday, and both Mayor Hylan and Comptroller Craig are understood to havo relaxed their antagonism. t One of the big features of the Hul bert plan Is to transfer from North River deep water piers lines of New England steamships that could be com fortably accommodated at a system of East River shallow water piers running from Seventeenth street to Twenty-sixth street. The saving In this Improvement ,would ben'efU both tho city nnd the steamship lines affected. The latter would save $100,000 a year U rentals and the city would gain sovrral deep water piers suitable for overseas trans portation which could be rented profit ably. Moreover, by the Hulbert plan the wide marginal way along the East River piers Is Ideal as a base for a. great New England steamship terminal which would be far more accessible to travel lers than Is the present North River terminal. In addition to these benefits thero would be a relief of congestion caused by the New England boats going out of their way to use a North River base, steaming 18,000 unnecessary miles a year, and therefore wasting time, fuel and labor. t'rge Htnten Ialnnd Piers. Another big feature which appeals to the Federal authorities Is the utilization of a waterfront section of Staten Isl and almost directly across the harbor from the Bush Terminal. C'.mnilsslonet Hulbert will argue that waterfront prop erty suitable for this pier system can be purchased reasonably and that piers con nesting the Baltimore and Ohio Rail road's tratlle from iho South could be put up at rcasoncble cost. He has pros pective tenants for these piers, and the city, ho states, would realize handsomely upon the Investment from the. first. Still another link In the Hulbert plan l the taking over of three Pennsylvania Railroad piers, 3, 4 and 5, North River, tearing them down and constructing n their wtead two big modern piers, which would be exceedingly productive as well ss useful In commerce. Commissioner Hulbert Is negotiating nt present with the Pennsylvania Railroad Company for tho purchase of these piers, which the Pennsylvania does not need, and the negotiation' have proceeded favorably from the outset. At the same time the Commissioner would take from the 1. high Valley Railroad a pier whlcli Is not being Intensively emplo'ed.
