Since placing the above in type an order has been issued making it optional with the local boards as to whether or not they will take the credits due them by enlistment on this or the draft that is to soon be made. As we have been bombarded with questions from all over the county regarding what is to be done in the matter in Carroll county, inquiry from the board brings out the decision from a majority of that body that the credits due this county will be taken on the next call, which means that the men in the above list will necessarily have to go next Tuesday. Many of the counties of the state are taking advantage of the order and accepting the credits on this call. Had the loal board made this decision it would not have been necessary to send but one or two men on this increment, as we understand that the county has some 83 or 84 enlistments to her credit.

Just as we go to press we learn that the local board has telegraphed Adjutant General Logan for definite instructions whether or not to accept credits on this call or send the last increment of this quota, and that the matter rests with his decision. Therefore we are unable to say whether the men listed above will leave next Tuesday or the county will accept its credits.
