Ottawh, July 12.-The Import-ant^question of the validity of the order-in-councll of April 20, cancelling exemptions granted under the Military Service Act, reached the supreme court of Canada this morning in the form of an appll-c.itlon of a writ of habeas corpus for Pte. George Edwin Grey, of Mlplssing, who Is under arrest bp-cause ho refused to don a military uniform at Niagara Camp, and also declined to be inocufat-\ ed. After hearing the application ins chambers. Judge Anglln consented to "the issuance of an order referring the matter to the full supreme court which will sit on* Thursday, July 18. This was done at the request of E. L. Newcombe, deputy minister of Justice and no objection was raised by R. H. Chrysler, K.C, Ottawa, of C. C. Robinson, who made the application on behalf of Grey. As a re-suit this application will be the basis for tho settlement by the courts of the highly Important matter of the validity of the order-in-councll of April 20. There will be no' apppal from the Judgment of the^ supreme court of Alberta, danger of tho possibility of an'^ob-Jectlon to such an ap.peal being taken thereby being avoided. ' In the course of the. proceedings before 'Hon. Justice Anglln, Mr. Chrysler explained that Grey, the applicant for the writ of habeas corpus, Is a farmer who ^ad been refused exemption by the local tribunal. He went before the appeal tribunal' at Haileybury and secured exemption so long as he rema;ined on the farm. From this decision tho military authopltles appealed to the central appeal Judge and the application was before Justice Duff on April, 20, when the ordcNrvlcouncll vvvis issued. Like.similar appeals relating to the classes affected by the order-in-councll, it was not proceeded vWlth. Justice , Anglln referred to the fact that tho ordsr-ln-councll had been passed when parliament was In aession. That was an objection to It whilch he said he would like to hear discussed. He also expressed a desire to see the Judg-. ment of tho Alberta i.nd Quebec courts Justice Anglln asked if It would be neoeesary to summons parlla- . ment in special session should the Buprcme court declare the orders-in-council Invalid and ffir. Newcombe replied -that It would. ' LIMIT REACHED. Apart from the habeas corpus proceedings which come before ' the full supreme court bench next week, a difficulty has.arisen ovep- the point raised In other court proceedings that the one hundred thousand limit to reinforcements, under the Military Service Act, . . already has bean reached. What Is the exact number of reinforcements secured, is now a matter of investigation. A total of between SO.OOO and 90,000 Is cited, but it is asserted that this is inclusive ofmen who should not properly be classed as military service act reinforcements. In any event some modification of the existing clause is likely to be a matter of early consideration. Anntfijncement already has been 'made that the provision will be amended only with the consent of parliament. ARRANGE A SESSION. Ottawa, July 12.-An early session of parliament Is again discussed here as a likelihood. While no apprehension Is felt in official circles that the supreme court vvlll uphold the validity of the April prder-in-council, cancelling certain exemptions, it Is understood that the parliamentary ar-rangements for an early session have been made should the supreme court take the view of the Alberta court of appeals. m mm DIS Dr. Robertson Says Situation in Great Britain is Much Better Now CANADA AND U.

Roherlson, "England's cereal crops are In excellenj^ condition. Farmers report uncommonly largo yields per acre. "The situation -in regard to the supply ot food Is still domlnantly Important, although sate tor the present, and reserve stocks must be accurau-latefl against a possibility ot partial c.rop;faIlures next year or gouib new war contingency. The need tor saving and buying war securities Is better understood and acted upon here than in Canada, those deriving revenues from farm products, whieii are financed by tho government, recognize the duty of Investing part ot their receipts in war bonds to enable the government to continue paying cash tor commodities."
