The following interesting letter

ARE EXPECTED TO
CLOSE BUSINESS SOON
From Saturday's Dallv.
A bulletin was received yester
day by the local board, in which il
is made known to that body, that
the business of the board is to be
closed up by December ninth, and
all the business sealed. In some
ways this will make the local
boards go some, as there are some
technical cases which it is difficult
to work in the short time.
The work as a general thing
which is voluminous, is being push
ed ahead by the local board here,
and with the force which they have
on the job, all adepts to rapid and
precise work, the work is being
passed into history very rapidly.

the camps, and saying they are pro
viding entertainment and ' many
comforts for the boys which they
would sadly miss if it was not for

not know how long they would stay
at camp, but did not expect long,
as it was rumored that the soldiers
would be demobilized, and the
Camp abandoned, in the near fu
ture. Mrs. Captain It. II. Hastain and

FORCES OF AMERICA BEGIN
MOVEMENT TOWARD HOME
Headquarters of the American
First Army, Nov. 22. While as an
effective military force the Ameri

Construction of all kinds has been
stopped and contracts and deliveries
canceled where possible and the men
whose services have been in these
and other lines of activity ar either
en route to ports or plans for their
embarkation are under way.
The sick and convalescent wound
ed will be sent home with the great
est possible expedition. Certain di
visions, exhausted by replacement
drafts until only the skeletons re
main, are also going home.
With the coming winter the
French need almost the entire ca
pacity of their railroads to distri

throughout the country. This will
delay the transportation of Amer

KAISER AND SON
HATED AT HOKE
London, Nov. 22. From a special
investigation in western Germany,
the correspondent of the Daily Mail
at the Hague has ascertained here
is considerable hostility against the
former emperor and his eldest son.
The correspondent says after Wil
liam llohenzol'ern entered Hol
land a thousand German soldiers
arrived at the frontier and demand
ed they be allowed to pursue and
kill him. They were turned back
by Dutch frontier guards.
The correspondent 2oes not be
lieve the former emperor could
reach Berlin in safety no matter
what guarantees might be given.
The former crown prince is uni
versally hated also. His life in Ger
many, the correspondent declares,
would not be worth an hour's pur
chase. He is undi-r close guard in
Holland for fear of attack. Much
publicity is being given to Eitel
Friedrich and August VTilhelm, re
spectively, the second and fourth
sons of the former emperor, and the
correspondent's impress-on is tliat
