BUSINESS AND THE DRAFT LAW  Employers of Labor Express Pleasure  At Early Chance to Know Wluit  'Employees Are Liable for Service-  Ottawa, Oct. 1.���������Business men  throughout the country are expressing their satisfaction with the system  of Medical Boards for selecting men  for military service early, of which  notice has been given by the Military  Service Council in the press of Canada. The system will enable employers to tell in a comparatively short  time how many of those in their  employ are liable to be drafted and  what men are not concerned in the  call. The physical test is, of course,  the most important.  Meanwhile, the economist "sharps''  are busy speculating as to whether  introduction of method and order  into the system of removing men  from industries of national importance, or rather the advent of a sys-  Mr. T.

WAt-  THE MILITARY SERVICE ACT  Exemption from service under the  Military Service Act, may be claimed  on eight separate grounds. The forms  oi; application which will be available at post offices throughout the  Dominion in the course of the next  "few weeks, make this clear. The  grounds are:  First���������Importance of continuation  c: employment in habitual occupat-  io    n.  Second���������Importance of continuing  employment as ��������� ��������� for which he  is specially qualified. ���������  Third���������Importance of continuing  education or training.  Fourth���������Serious hardship.owing to  exceptional financial obligations...  Fifth���������Serious hardship} owing to  exceptional business obligations..  ������������������   Sixth���������Serious hardship  owing to  exceptional domestic position.  Seventh���������111 health or infirmity.  Eighth���������Adherence to religious denomination, of which the articles of  P.iith forbid combatant service.  The form is. drafted much after,  the style of a ballot paper. The applicant for exemption is required to  place a cross opposite the grounds on  which the claim is, made. His case  will then go to the local tribunal to  - ���������   ���������       -        .',-.< ill..'  which proof in support will be submitted.  Application for exemption.may be  made not only by the man himself  but by his employer or a near relative  In Great Britain claims for exemption on the ground of a man being  indespensible in his civil occupation  are generally made by the employer,  who appeals to the tribunal on behalf,  oi his men. It is felt that such ,a  clalmcan best be made by the employer. In any event a man claiming essential occupation would need  to have the support of his employer,  to his claim.  The forms of military report are  equally simple. These will be used  1-y men who do not wish to claim  exemption..  "I hereby report myself for military service.

FARMING; .-WEST.>NOT  Ko Fear Expressed    of  Tlntensiflei I  'irROUBLEi  Shortage of Labor,After the Draft  Is In Operation.  Ottawa, September 2 9.���������Reports,  reaching here from the agricultural  districts in Western Canada indicate  that no trouble is-anticipated, from  Intensified:labor problems as a result  of the operation of the-Military Service Act. . Experience at the time.of  the harvest this year, \;-hen,..sumcr  lent labor was supplied through the  co-operation of the many patriotic  forces in adifion to the regular supply., has. caused the farmers to view  the prospect with complacence^  in the first years. of the war, a/  large number of farmers, left-the land  to join the armies. The exodus was  led by the large number of men  from the Old Country who had taken  up farms in the west. The operation of the Exemption Boards,-under  the Military.Service Act. wall tend to  prevent,any;serious withdrawal of  farmers or their assistants.in future,  as agriculture is one.of the industries  which will be given.particular care.  Since Western Canada is intensely i  democratic, in-its political views,, the  sharing of military burdens tinder the  Military. Service- Act -meets, with wide  approval there. The scope permitted  Exemption Boards ,i.n their dealings  with individual cases is nevertheless  admitted-to. be necessary ..in the highest interests of, the country.  Exemption Tribunals in all parts of Canada  The local exemption tribunals will be constituted with the least delay  possible, consistent with the selection of representative individuals to  compose them, and the instruction of the members in their duties. There  will be more than one thousand of such tribunals throughout Canada, each  consisting of two members, one of'whom will be nominated, by a Joint  Committee of Parliament, and the other by one of the Judges of the  existing Courts. Every effort will be mnde by the wtoc distribution of  tribunals, and by provision where necessary for their sitting in more than  one place, to minimise the inconvenience to which men will be put in  obtaining the disposition of their cnsc3.  A Registrar will be appointed in euch Province, who will be named  in the proclamation and to whom enquiries may be addressed.    Each.  Provincial Registrar will transmit to the appropriate tribunal the applications for exemption-which have, been submitted-in advance.of the sit--  tings, and men.who have,sent these in will not be required to attend the  tribunals until^notincd-to do so. ..Other.applicants should attend per- -  sonally on tlie tribunal without notice.  How to report for service  Men who do not desire to claim exemption will report to the military  authorities for service either by mail or in person at any time after the  issue of the proclamation. Forms of report by mail will be found in all  post offices, and, like applications for exemption, will be transmitted free  of postage.   . o   '  Early report advantageous  No man ,w,hp.reports for service will, although he may be medically  examined and passed as fit,' be required to go into camp or join a battalion ���������  until after a day fixed by the proclamation sufficiently late to permit of  the disposition by the local tribunals of most, if not all, of the applica- ���������,  tions for exemption which may come before them. Thus no advantage  will be gained by delaying or disadvantage incurred by prompt report for  service on the part of those who do not intend to apply for exemption.  Facilities for immediate medical examination  Immediately upon the issue of the proclamation, medical boards will ;  sit at eyery-.-mobilization centre for the examination of men who report  for service or who, subject to their right within the time limited to apply-,  for exemptiqn, desire to have their physical fitness determined in order to  allay any doubt as to their physical condition, or to know.definitely and  in advance whether there is a possibility of their services being required-  Certificates of physical unfitness issued by these Medical Boards will be,  accepted without any further investigation by exemption tribunals when  they sit.    Men.found.physically fit who have not reported for service  may nevertheless apply for exemption on any of the prescribed grounds; -  including even their physical condition if dissatisfied with the Medical  Board's conclusion.  Notice jtp join the colors  As reinforcements are required, notice to report to the nearest mobiW-o  ization centre..will be given from time to time to the men found liable and  passed as fit for service.    Disobedience of such notice will render the .  offender liable to punishment, but punishment for failure���������to reportfor  military?service, or to report subsequently,for duty when called upon;  will be.imposed ordinarily by the civil magistrates; offenders, however; ���������.  will remain liable for the performance of their military duties notwith-  standing.any civil punishment which may be imposed^ and will be liable  to military punishment in cases in which civil proceedings are nottaken. .  \yatch for the. Proclamation  Notice;pf the. day appointed for the making of a claim-for exemption -.  or for report for military service-will be published as widely as possible;  but, as no.personal;.notice can be. given., until .the individuals .called out .  have; so reported themselves or claimed exemption, men possibly concerned are warned to inform.them9elves:with regard to1 the day-fixed;���������  since negieot may involve .the loss by them of important privileges and .-  rights,; %, -  CHAS.
