In some Northern States, said the

t "My State has every desire to fur

s seen that exempting aliens will place
the whole burden of protecting the

s A tremendous wrong has been done

Pomerene said in Cleveland the es

e 1.12,000 people there, while as a mat
' ter of fact there were not more than
S40.000. Akron was credited with 38,

Northern cities had been padded.
."It is in order to make their draft

estimates have been reduced by the

clared. "We are accustomed to being
- heavily taxed in the North. But it
is going a bit too far when we are
asked to give more than our propor

Senator McCumber wished to nego

country. Senator Reed said he had
tried to get the alien exemption law
amended, but was unsuccessful.
Orders Lists Pested.
Because the registration lists, with
a the new serial numbers, have been
a posted in the offces of the local
s boards, thus causing inconvenience to
the press and in some cases prevent
e ing publication of lists. Provost Mar
shal Gen. Crowder yesterday ordered
- State governors to have the lists of
d all the local boards posted in a cen

i, Secretary of War Raker announced
yesterday that the appellate boards
f for exemption cases have all been se

n the White House awaiting routine ap

24 or 48 hours, by the committee on

n In all there are 154 of these hoards.
. They will be practically the flnl court
