West and South last night indicat- ed a strong sentiment in favor of the league in all sections of the country. As the referendum being conducted in many cities in'the country continues, the people are arousirj themselves to a keener interest. Letters Ex-plain Ballots. This was demonstrated by more than a score of letters received I tbe Standard Telegram from acl- J vocatcs of a league yesterday, m which the writers outlined their reasons for believing that such a I league in tne only feasible solution to curb wars in the future. To quote from ore letter received: j "It was the kaiser through his representathes, who, with all sub- tle arguments and subterfuge, ren- dered The Hague tribunal Germany was preparing for na.1 and world conquest years ago. The Hague tribunal, with all its nesses, was a forward for i tfeace. Tt is all' that" the present constitution of the League pf'Xations needs amending. But even as it is it constitutes a great step toward world peace." Many who attended Poll's yes- terday were inclined to be reserved in their opinion on the question, j chiefly because, many explained, they have formed no definite con- elusion yet. Those who voted did so with, an enthusiasm which showed clearly that they have studied ihe subject with a. view to aiding. In an expression of their opinion, those who must .'n the end upon the broad question. There was an apparent anxictj on the part of those who vot'-'i in the affirmative to make cei tain that their ballots were no; overlooked by collecting ihem. The Standard Telegram has ar- ranged with tbe management 01' the Plaza theater for a similar vote to be taken Friday. The vo on 'that -occasion will be facilitated somewhat by the emoloyment ol two ballots, one a the a. answer. Patrons will be given one of each. The one thej retain will be placed fn the ballo; boxes.
