Registration Day In
liet-At 3 o'clock 97 Names In
From outward appearances there was
little to distinguish Registration Day
fr. m any other day in Carson, except
that business in the capitol was wholly
suspended. Other lines of business,
however, excluding the bank, which was
open only to receive subscriptions to
the Liberty Loan, went along as usual,
though there seemed to be but little
trading. The saloons were all closed.
The registration 1ooths opened early
in the day, with all the officers on hand.
Registration began at once and there
was little fuss and absolutely no dis
order in carrying on the work. So far
as known Carson will produce no shirk
ers or quitters, all seemed willing to
comply with the government's require
ments and those claiming to be exempt
were few and far between.
At noon over seventy-five had regis
tered, about three-fifths of the whole
number that Ormsby county is expected
to furnish. Of this number twenty
who registered in the First ward, came
from the Indian school.
At 2:30 o'clock there had been
registrations recorded, in the
wards of the city, as follows:.
ernor Sleeper of Michigan ordered
troops to Xcgaunec, a mining town near
Marquette, where I. W. W. anti-drafters
mohilized and riots are feared. Thur
mond, one of the oldest mcmhers of the
Oklahoma legislature, was arrested for
making anti-conscription orations at
Oklahoma City. Two anti-rcgistration-ists
were arrested in Milwaukee. The
morning registration passed quietly in
N'ew York. The provost marshal gen-
launched three torpedoes at the vessel,
but missed. A British destroyer came
up while a bugler stood on the bridge
of the destroyer playing the "Star
Spangled Banner," while 200 Red Cross
nurses and doctors cheered from the
Mongolia. The destroyers chased, but
failed to catch the divers.
