A couple of returned soldiers were
making a very successful appeal to
Hie sympathies of Cranbrook citizens
on Saturday afternoon, when Chief of
Police Horsey put a stop to their
operation.". Their system is as simple
as it was successful. Armed with a
supply of envelopes containing a half
dozen post cards on which are printed

The appellants all appeared iu
court and were given every opportunity of giving evidence in support of
their claims. Most of the cases were
disposed of in a short time, hut a
considerable period was ti-tlcii u<p
with the hearing of the claim of a
conscientious objector. Oliver Crosby,
of Wycliffe.
Notwithstanding tbo fuct that, he
has two brothers at the front, the
appellant refused to claim exemption on the ground tiiat other members of his family hnd enlisted and

on conscientious grounds, even though

own words, he is "a member of thej

ed faith in the efficacy of persuasive
powers. Questioned as to whether!
he would use force to protect his:

ll is unfortunate that the puhlic,
wlilch Is always so ready to give to
any cause that is helping onr soldiers
who are overseas and who have returned, should be victimized in this
way. ami credit must bc given to Chief
Hersey for stopping the proceedings
of those men as promptly as he did.
for they had not been in town two
hours before they were arrested.
Nnt only were these men abusing
the generosity of the public, but by

These men appeared before Magistrate Arnold on Monday charged with
an offence under the Vagrancy Act
and were each fined $10.00 with an
alternative of _"1  days  Imprisonment.

which government he would find fault
with were not forthcoming.
So far does Crosby carry his ideas

In view of the fact that the majority of those who have been granted

Tt was almost Impossible to secure
a direct answer to any question, but
finally tlie Military Representative obtained tt negative answer to the question whether Crosby would reply with
force to any attack on himself by
force. Before giving Ills answer,
Crosby urgently requested the Military Representative ttt attack him. so
that hc could demonstrate his manner
of response. His method of answering
question with question finally brought
from the Judge a severe reprimand
for the manner ln which he wns behaving in Court.
Final questions elicited the informa
tion that Crosby not only objects to I Bnckstrom
taking life, hut objects to non-tOmbat-      lowed

the  destruction  of  life   rather  than

No une will fiohdimo the unfortunate
Incident on Monday night when a
number of citizens invaded the Laur-
ler-Ltbernl Committee rooms and created a disturbance, it was to say the
least, regretable. and we are sure that
none regret the incident as much as
the perpetrators, when In the calmer
moments of tlle following day, they
realized iheir unchlvnIrons conduct,
and we are sure tliat in tendering a
.sincere apology to the offended, we
are expressing the wishes uf every one
concerned, just as wo : re sure that
the apology will be accepted in a spirit
of magnanimity and of a generous acceptance of the ununiiul conditions
which caused the pent Up feelings of
the victors to be displayed in bo un-
gallant a manner. It was a spontan
eons outburst, a regretable Impulse of
the moment, and far from the line Of
generous treatment usually accorded
the vanquished by the victors iu Cranbrook and wc sincerely trust that with
these words the incident may be regarded as closed.
nda's nt tit title on the war; and piOud
oT Hi,* overwhelming majority of the
nation who lmvo demonstrated iu -so
emphatic a manner their grim determination i" stand by the Military Service Ad anil all that it entails.
The Sou! of the Nation has spoken,
the real heart of its people has been
exposed   and   tlte  exposure  sends  nl
message ot" courage to the brave lads
In FlRnders.
The message has gone forth to nll i
quarters of the earth that Canada will i
back Its boys up with tlie last man
and tho last dollar if necessary. Can
ada will be "in" to the end of the wor
and that triumphant end is thereby
appreciably nearer because the final
decision is as much a matter of morale
as mi' men.
The morale of our troops has repeatedly carried them to victory
against the superior massed formation
of the enemy,
Tho wonderful spirit of the Hritish
ami Canadian troops is proverbial and
this same spirit Bprond itself amongst
the l-'rem ji armies ui a crucial per.*id
In the earlier stagey of the war when
faced by overwhelming forces and Buffering coustnnl reverses the morale
of tiie I'reui h troops was seriously
llueaieiie,! aiul that spirit of clieerfnl-
ness, del er initial ion and resourcefulness in tho uildsl of untold sufferings
nud hnril-.hjps has never since been
effaced and us long as it exists, the I
Allied troops will maintain their fight-
lug superior It) uver the enemy.
Monday|a verdict is therefore of Inestimable value in sustaining the morale dI' nur splendid men by ihe knowledge tiiat Canada stands united ill her
determination te* utilize every available resourse and also to send the
much needed rc-iiiforcements as
speedily us possible.

Now that the Klcction is over and
the Union Government has received
its mandate from the majority of the
ptOple, wo sincerely trust that whatever bitterness of feeling may have
beeu engendered between the opposing
factions will be burled and tluit all
parties will join hands and work with
one unite t effort ta achieve the great
end we all have III View—The destruction of the Military Power of (iermany,
which, -we are all agreed.is the only
road to an enduring peace.
There never was u time (and never
.vill lie) when all men thought alike,
I it Is but human nature that opposing
views should be held as t'j best methods whereby this great object may be
achieved; anti there is only one democratic way tu decide the question—by
the voice of the majority.
Let us hope, therefore, that we will
\ succeed In attaining that unity of effort which Is so necessary to ensure
| the greatest results and with a high
l resolve and lofty patriotism w<> will
* all join hands and stand shoulder tu

Final Appeal Jwd^e
Gives Ruling on
Exemption of Farmers
Mr. Justice Duff (the Final Court of Appeal) Declares it is Essential that there shall be No
Dimimitiiin in Agricultural Production.
(Published by authority of Director of Public Information,
Ottawa.)
Hon. Mr. Justice Duff gave judgment on December
(iili, in the first test case brought before him, »r. Central
Appeal Judge .(the final court of appeal), for the exemption of a farmer, The appeal was made ley W. 11. itnwa-
tree in respect of his son, VV. J. Rowntree, from the
decision of Local Tribunal, Ontario, No. 421, which
refused a claim for exemption. The son was stated to
be an experienced farm hand, who bad been working
on the farm continuously for the past seven years, and
ever since leaving school. He lives ind works with his
father, who owns a farin of ISO acres near Weston,
Ontario. With the exception of a younger brother, he
is the only male help of the father on thc farm. The
father is a man of advanced years.
In granting the man exemption "until he ceases to
be employed in agricultural labor," Mr. Justice Dm.
said:
"The Military Service Act does not deal with the
subj'.'ci. of the exemption of persons engaged in the agri-
culti.e'il industry; and the question which it is my duty
to deciders whether the applicant being and having
been, as above mentioned, habitually and effectively engage! in agriculture and in labor essential to the carrying on of agricultural production, ought to bc exempted
undcr-the provisions of the Military Service Act.
"These two propositions are indisputable :
"(1) In order that the military power of the allies
may !*e adequately sustained, it is essentia! that in this
country and under the present conditions, there
should he no diminution in agricultural production.
"(2) The supp'ly of competent labor available for
the purpose of agricultural production is not abundant,
but actually is deficient.
The proper conclusion appears to be lhat the applicant, a competent person, who bad been habitually
ami . .leclively engaged in labor essential to such pro-
ducti in, ou-jht not to be withdrawn from it.
"It i's perhaps unnecessary to say that such exemptions are not granted as concessions on account of personal hardship, still le.s as a favor to a class. The sole
ground of them is that the national interest is the better
served by keeping these men at home. The supreme
'necessity-(VipO-i the existence of which, as its preamble
shows, this policy of the Military Service Act is I'ound-
:■•!) ti al leads the State to take men by compulsion and
put ll em in the fighting line require s lhal men shall be
kept rt hoitie who are engaged in work essential to enable 'he State to maintain the full efficiency of the com-
bet.-.ri forces, and whose places cannot be taken by
ol'   *    not within the class called out."

The   Editor,   t'ranbrook   Herald:
I should be extremely sorry to shake
the faith of the diciples. »jf any Holy

attachment to righteous principles of
patriotism uu)re especially so iE,,he
deserves the respect he ought to enjoy.
Whilst I sluiU avoid using the strong
adjective^ employed, by tlie RflY, 'Mr.
Keyworth in his strictures'on what I
repotted, I must in fairness to myself ask the public and the admirers of
the Ileverend gentleman ,*to suspend
judgment until ihey see and understand tlie evidence that, will prove I
was correel in every minute particular. ■
I ihercforo ehallenge tin* Rev. Mr.

duci' iwltnoBBeg' mid Incontrovcrtlb'e
evldonco to prove what I wrote or said
to he ah'dutely correct ami thai  his
written siatenicnt is n divergence from
the truth. Maybe tho serious error is
attributable tn bis falling memory or
perhaps from Ids Inability to grasp or
i ompre'hend true living facts.
However, the great.flUflsUon at issue
between the ileverend gentleman and
myself has now been settled by tbe

will reverberate throughout tiie world
