Unauthorized advertising will not ho paid for. Ad. D. Ottawa, July 12.-After a few preliminaries! consideration of tho military sorvico act was resumed in com-mltleo by tho house of commons today. Hon. Arthur Melghen said that tho suggestion of the government In regard to tho choice of a hoard of selection, to bo chosen by the house and the senate to nominate one member ot each local hoard, Is that It should consist of four members from Ontario, four from Quebec and two from each of the other provinces. The board would includo momhors of tho house and senate and outsiders. Sir Wilfrid Laurler expressed a preference for both members of each local tribunals being appointed hy the Judiciary. Ho polntod out that in the event of vacancies occurring they could only ho filled by a joint resolution of tho two houses. Mr. Muighun submitted on amendment which provided that judges or others who refuse to act on hoards shall bo liable to imprisonment Tor a period of not more than,two years or less than thrco months, unless formal- ly released In writing. Replying to Mr. l'roulx, the solicitor-general wild-that members of parliament would bn liable to serve. Mr. I'roulx suggested thel>- disqualification in cam; of failure to act. Mr. Meighon replied that there was no penalty provided other than imprisonment. Mr. Mnrci! wanted to know if an Ontario man could he appointed on h Quebec tribunal. Mr. Meighon replied that from a legal standpoint so far as the bill is concerned this could he done, but tho practice would be to appoint local men well known to tho community. Sir Wilfrid Laurler insisted that tho local tribunals should consist of judges. Mr. Meighon said he agreed that tho judges would bo tho be;;t qualified to do the work, hut they are not numerous enough to do Die work in a reasonable lime. , Sir Wilfrid said that wherever available judges should be appointed. Hon. C. J. Doherty explained that all tho work of the local tribunals would be reviewed by judges. RECEPTION OF THE directory of auto livery and draying If Yon Are Going to Watcrton Lakes See BOULTON'S AUTO LIVERY FOR RATES We are trying to arrange parties and may be able to make a reasonable rate for the trip. Phone 1206 Carmangay, Alta., July 12, 191". Tho Editor Tho Lethbridge Herald, Lethbridge, Alberta. Doar Sir,-As secretary of the Carmangay Auto Club 1 have been Instructed to write to you to acknowledge publicly tho thanks of our club for the reception accorded to us on our trip to Lethbridgo yesterday. Tho Lethbridge Auto Club greeted us in a way in which I am sure no visitors have been met beforo At tho foot of tho hill we were greeted hy tho sight of a big rod car, that of tho chief of tho fire department. This was distinctly encouraging. The fact that this car was empty lent a variation to the welcome that Is quite unusual. Tho Lethbridge Auto Club have an unequated manner of welcome that Is entirely their own. They are quite without ostentation or vnlgar display. When a neighboring club visits Lethbridge the members retire to their homes nnd hope for tho best. The only recognizable acUnowledgo-ment of our existence came from a portly policeman, who, with a surprising amount of ponderous dignity instructed us to move along, when our hoys' band presumed to render a couple of items hy way of demonstrating our existence. It by any chance the Lethbridge Auto Club are responsible for this policeman and his antics we are grateful. Any form of acknowledgement, however oblique Is perhaps better than completo neglect. Our duo appreciation of the welcome given us is here acknowledged to all who may be concerned. Comparisons are perhaps a trifle invidious, hut one is struck hy the different reception given the eighteen cars from Calgary, a city which does no business with Lethbridge, and that given tho sixty or bo from Carmangay, a town which does all Its business with no point other than Lethbridge. Tho Lethbridge Club is assured that in spite of everything, on their return visit to Carmangay, if they think it worth while to come, they will bo greeted and entertainod with tho hospitality for which we try to lceop Carmangay famous, and our Invitation Is here extended to tho Loth-bridge Club to come at their pleasure, giving us notice of no more thaij a day or so in which to prepare for their coming. It is here appropriate to tender our thanks to the Bijou Motor Parlors for their kind offer of their facilities to us on our trip. These thanks are given. Their courtesy is tho more appreciated by us in as much as it was unique. I am, Yours verv truly, P. II. RUSSELL.

In exporting iron ore to Germany, Sweden, it is shown, has supplanted shipments with imports from tho United Stales. What this government will do to end this trade through operation of the export control act has not been announced, hut some of the allies, Jt is known are urging the United States to license no food exports to Sweden until a definite understanding has been readied with the Swedish government concerning her exports to Germany. Another charge against Sweden made in tho report is that she has' discriminated against the allies In the �use of her railroads. Overland trade through Sweden between Norway and Germany has been encouraged, It is declared, while the allies have boon subjected to every inconvenience and ! have been charged exorbitant rail ' rates.
