Tho wonderful pertlna HISTORY OF DRAFTS. Hon tho I'uioii Army Was Heerulteil Dur ing Urn (1,11 War. Tho flrt suggestion of a draft was mado In 1SG1 by Colonel P.. 11. Marcy, of New York, to General McClollan. The latter officer recommended that it bo carried out, as men wero neoded at once. No drafting, however, was authorizod during that vear. duly 1, lbli'J, tho Pres ident called for .",00,000 moro volunteers for tho war, and by tho terms of tho or der theso wero to be drafted if thoy did not olunteer promptly. August 0 fol lowing President Lincoln asked for an additional !!00,000 men for nlno months, with a liko proviso for compulsory en llstment If uecessarv. Several orders wero issued by the Secretary of War to prevent the evasion of military duty un der this call, but tolunteerlng was so generally stimulated by local prldo and local bounties at tho timo that there was very Httlo onforced enlistment nec essary. Probably up to February 1, 180,1, thero wero not 10,000 drafted men In tho army. In view of tho fact that a large part of tho volunteer forco would soon b disbanded because of tho expiration of their terms of service, early In 1S63 thero was brought forward In Congress an enrollment and conscription act, authorizing the Presi lent to recruit tho army, when necessary, by drafting from tho able-bodied male citizens of tho country between tho ages of SO and 45. This nieasuie met with considerable ob lection, butfiniiHy becamo a law March S. Under this law tho President ap pointed a Provost JIarshal General, whoso otllco should be in Washington, and tho entire country was divided Into districts, with a Provost Marshal over oach. Theso wero to inako an enroll ment of all tho ablo-bodied men of tho proper ago In each district. Juno 15 a call was mado for SCO, 000 mon under .tho conscription act. In tho major ity of Instances tho machinery of tho dratt was not put in lorce, as every ef fort was made to oncourago'volunteor Ing. It Is estimated that in tho twelve States in which itwasenforeodtho draft had resulted, by December I, 1883, in adding about 50,000 men to tho army. It also accumulated by that time a fund of 810,515,800, derived from "commuta tions," for any drafted man was allowed to buy oxemption from sorvico by pav ing $800. This fund was used for boun ties to tho volunteer soldiers. October 15, 1803, 300,000 moro voluntoors wero called for and it was ordered that It any btato failed to ralso tho quota assigned to It under this call, a draft would bo made to fill tho deficiency, beginning January 5, 1804. This call was gonorally filled by volunteers, but as the need of tho service for moro men continued Im perative, 200,000 moro wore called for Fobruary 1, 1804, and, March 14, an additional 200,000. April 15 was doslgnatod as tho time up to which tho number required from any district might bo raised by voluntary enlistment; after tbatdato tho draft was to bo put In forco. July 4, 1804, Congress amended tho conscription act by tho provision that hereafter when any call for troops was mado, tho ward, town or district which had no( filled Ha quota by COMMERCIAL CLIPPINGS.
