United 1'rcs.s Staff ('orrc.s|x indent. Washington, June I.—Part of congress is aiding the anti-registration plots. While the department of justice is hewing at the roots of the nationwide conspiracy, some members ol congress are franking out anti-conscription speeches, including that of Speaker Champ Clark, it became known today. Many supposedly arc using their franking privileges to explain their votes on the selective service bill, but the effect of their act —be it intended to block registra tion or not is manifestly to encour age the plotters wherever the liter attire reaches, The anti-registration conspiracy It taking on broader aspects than even the, most pessimistic had feared. Ar-| rests show that the preachment ol the plotters are spreading to every corner of the nation. So extensive is! the propaganda that tear of repetition of the civil war anti-draft riots is expressed secretly here. As ar- arrests do not appear wholly to curb the propaganda officials are at a loss to know just what to do to halt the trouble before registration day. Unofficial suggestions are that as most ol the eases show treason un- mistakeably it might be advisable to make an example of a few of the plotters by inflicting severe penalty. Treason h<)8 been charged In the ><Jhio case-,, and it may be laid 'gainst other alleged plotters already netted in various sections of the country. A new brand of anti- registration plotting was uncovered today In the south where negroes are being incited to resist registration and military service. Eight men are known to be working in three states, suggesting to the negroes that the) hide out" from the authorities and claiming that the, whites are planning to exempt them- st-ivis b) filling up the quota from the colored population. Arrests within a day of two are anticipated. The action of congressmen in sending out the anti-conscription speeches is proving more than an embarrassment to the authorities. Members cannot be molested while congress sits, but it is possible that the postal authorities may find It "inconvenient" to give quick dispatch to the bundles of free mail containing the anti-registration suggestions. The hand of Germany is becoming more easily distinguished in much of the present propaganda, though some of the plotters evidently are actuated by conscientious or Intellectual objections to military service. In either case authorities here hold that the plotters are aiding and comforting the enemy as prospectively at least they rob the new army of men who ought to serve therein. MARKET CHASGHM.
