Adelaide Turgeon, speaker of the legislat've council:" "I read the article hastily, but I question its practicability, in view of the fact that the commission would requite the sanction of the different provinces to make its flnd'ngs legal.

The applicant and one of his brothers live at home with the father, one brother lives on a farm IV* miles south, and another lives on a farm one mile, east, and is married.

Further Investigation "It may be observed that if a further investigation of the facts during the spring of 1918 indicate the desirability of it, the exemptions already granted to the unmarried brothers may be reviewed." Another appeal allowed is that of a farm laborer, Donald Mathieson. of Beulab. Man. Application was made for exemption b^* the man's employer. The' employer cwns a section of land, "277 acres of which were under cultivation and 250 acres in crop during 1917.
