T Colonel C. W, Belton, chief medical officer of the board, gave evidence regarding the manner in which a man's disability is determihed. "Suppose a man without suppressing the truth as to his condition, is paps-ed as fit although suffering from trouble of some kind at the time of enlist-mentj should the state assume that the man was fit?" asked W. P. Nickle, Kingston. Colonel Belton admitted that such a princijile was a good one but the procedure was not followed , by. the pension commissioners. lie stated that it had been the custom for men to be taken in the army on a period of probation. During that time it trouble is found, the man is discharged without a pension.
