He wished he cnuid say the same about Canada. H"e realized the advantage whlcb wonli* accrae through keeping the men In Canada, during their training period but the object at present was to gel men overseas. Uee the Camps Sir Wilfrid I^urfer aaked the minister whether it was not his policy to utillte the various camps throughout the Dominion.  He thought that In view of the food situation in Enr land anil various clrcumstancea whlcb had arisen thai such a question might be In order. He was answered that It possible and enough men were recruited under-the Military Service Act, these camps would be i]tlUzed but that there was no use opening them for a few men. The committee rose and reported progress. Rc-establlshment The bouse then went into committee on a bill respecting aoldlers' civil re-establishment. Sir Robert Borden pointed cut that men undergoing treatment in hospitals would, If necessary receive vocational training and re-education under the acv.' dcparfment of soldiers' civil re-establthhment. In respect of men who do not require hospital treatment, he Katd that the new department would have the dilty of looking aftir the training of these men for suitable civil occupations. Blr Wilfrid Laurier interposed to say that the bill as presented did not contain any concrete plan aa to the Intentions of the department. He maintained that men coming back crippled or Incapacitated would of necessity become a public charge and he expressed the opinion that those who returned maimed, might prefer to suit themselves in re-entering civil occupation. The premior pointed out that even If a uuaiber of men did return aound in body and in possessing of all their faculties many of them would need aid In making the change from military to civil life. "Is It not a desirable thing that wo should assist these men In raturning," he asked, "suppose wo told them to shift for themselves ?" "That Is happening already," interjected 8ir Sam Hughes. Sir Robert Borden replied that if such a thing was taking place he was not actually tvware of it, and It w*� not the Intention of the government that men niedlng assistance be discharged In this way. Continuing, he said, th�( no concrete proposals were cantered in the bill bocause the minister bM not had tiina fully to stuily the question, the main idea being to secure the necea-sary authority. Open Up Weat Heee Sir Sam Hughes urged the opening up of the northweit for possible soldier settlers after the war. He pointed out timt a great deal of prteparatioit should be done in the way of surveying with tkia object in view. Hemarklng that (he bill did not go far enough. W. K.
