week from a trip to the Sibola
country; where he examined a
number of properties in that region.

about the showings of the Emerald
group (Sweeney property) on
Sweeney mountain, declaring that
he saw there some of the finest
silver-lead ore it had been his lot
to experience (and Henry is an
old-timer from the Boundary country.) Transportation was the
main problem of the region, he
stated. On his way in, Henry inspected a few of the properties in
the Telkwa district and went over
the Debenture group, of which he
was one of the two original locators, and which is under development on bond by T. H. Rea and
associates. High-grade ore has
been struck on this promising silver-lead property, though the main
vein has not been reached yet. It
is planned to build a wagon road
from the property to the railroad
at Doughty or Moricetown.���

Military Service Act, 1917
Explanatory Announcement by the
Minister of Justice
THE MILITARY SERVICE ACT has received the assent of the
Governor-General and Is now part of the law of the land. It will be
enforced accordingly, and the patriotism and good sense of the
people can be relied upon to support it. Resistance to its enforcement,
however, by word or act must and will be repressed, as resistance to any
other law in force must be.
Reinforcements under the Military Service Act
immediately required
It is the intention of the Government immediately to exercise the
power which the Act confers and to call out men for military service in
order to provide reinforcements for the Canadian forces. This is necessary since the military authorities report that the reserves available or
in sight for reinforcement will shortly be exhausted unleSs this step be
taken.
First call limited to men between 20 and 34 who were
unmarried or widowers without children on
July 6, 1917
The present call will be limited to men not in the schedule of exceptions who were unmarried or widowers without children on6th July,! 917,
are at least twenty years of age, and were born on or since January 1st,
1883. Of this Class all those will be entitled to conditional exemption
whose services in their present occupations, agricultural, industrial or
other, are essential in the national interest, and whose business or domestic reponsibilities are such that serious hardship would ensue if their
services be required. Conscientious scruples baaed upon a prohibition
of combatant service by the articles of faith of the religious denomination
to which men belong will also be respected. The men first required to
serve will consequently be those who can be called upon with the least
disturbance of the economic and social life of the country.
Civil Tribunals to deal with exemptions
Questions of exemption will be determined, not by the military
authorities or by the Government, but by civil tribunals composed of
representative men who are familiar with local conditions in the communities in which they serve, who will generally have personal knowledge
of the economic and family reasons which those whose cases come before
them have had for not volunteering their services and who will [be able
sympathetically to estimate the weight and importance of such reasons.
Provincial Appellate Tribunals constituted from the existing judiciary of
the respective provinces will be provided to correct mistakes made by
Local Tribunals, and a Central Appeal Tribunal for the whole of Canada,
selected from amon g the present Judges of the Supreme Court of Canada,
will be constituted in order that identical principles may be applied
throughout the country. In this way every man may rest assured of the
fair and full consideration of his ckcumstances and the national require*. :

Ottawa. September 11,1917--
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 made by the wide 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 cases.
A Registrar will be appointed in each 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 appli-.
cations for exemption which have been submitted in advance of the sittings, and men who have sent these in will not be required to attend the
tribunals until notified to do so. Other applicants should attend per*
sonally on the 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.
Early report advantageous
No man who 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 applications 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 hot intend to apply for exemption.
Facilities for immediate medical examination
Immediately upon the issue of the proclamation, medical boards will
sit at every mobilization centre for the examination of men who report
for service or who, subject to their right within the time limited to apply
for exemption, 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 cf the prescribed grounds,
including even their physical condition if dissatisfied with the Medical
Board's conclusion.
.Nqtice-Jtojoiii^
^���Asranibraiiiai-- are required, notice to report to the nearest mobilization 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 report for
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 notwithstanding any civil punishment which may be imposed and will be liable
; to military punishment in cases in which civil proceedings axe not taken.
Watch for the Proclamation y
:C;;;Notice of theday apr_ointed 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 soreported themselves or claimed exemption, men possibly concerned are'..warned to inform themselves with regard to the day.fixed,
since neglect may involve the loss by them of important privileges and
