THE CASE OF THE FARMER IN BRITAIN AND CANADA. The following neire item appeare in the liondon papers of June 7th: A proclamation rwsis made on Tuesday by the King under the Military Sorvico (ICo. 2) Act, 1918, withdrawing, with some exemptions, oil certificates of exemption held by men born ' In 1900. It -ivUl be recalled that the "cleaa cut" -vras apTllled to men bom la the yeaxs 1S95 to 1S99 inoluslvo by the-proclamation of April 20. The present proclamatloiD. alter reciting that "a national emergency has arisen," directs that, "as from June 8, Jhe certificates of exemption from iVilIItary service specified In the First �Schedule of this proclamation shall ; cease to have effect." Applications for certificates of exemption, it la pro- � Tided, may be made in the special cases and subject to the provisions apeclfied in the Second Schedule. In Canada, the exemption certificates of men ot twenty, twenty-one und twenty-two have been cancelled. Tho result hae been all kinds ot wild talk about these certificates being pcraps ot paper, the government breaking faith tvlth tho farmers, etc., 'to. 1 The above, comments the Bdmon-� ton Journal, shows that In Britain ; not only have the exemption certlti-oatea of men of th^eso ages been cancelled, but those ot men of eighteen, 'nineteen and twenty-three aa woU. , But one searohea in vain In Bngllah : papers for any denunciation of the goremment on the lines ot that which iwo hear in Canada. �' Not only hn� a "clean-out" ot all egcemptlona of men of these ages been mad^, but large eddltlonal drains have been made upOQ those engaged In farming up to the age ot forty-two. B*om other ocoupatfons men are being ttken up to fttty-one years of age. Tho London papers of June 18 coe-^n the official warning to those bora in the years 1867, 1868 and 1869.  .What a shocking offence It is for �Oamadlan papers, In the Hgbt of these facts resardtag the situation in the Old ttiand, bo devote column after icolumn ot Its apace to telling the 'Ganadlaii fanner how much worse he has been treated than the British far-ipsr. Nowhere in the Dominion is the riffence so glaring as in the case of thp Edmonton paper, whicih went so far M to say that "the English far-aa^r Is exempt, while the Canadian farmer Is conscripted." tho army, considering tho noods ot tho I army at that time. Wo beliovo most ' ot tho tribunals did tholr work con-solcntlously and that their declslohs | wore fair and Just. I But it does not necessarily follow . that tliolr decisions at that time' should hold good now. Tho comparative value of n man now in his regular occupation as ag.iihet active service has undorgono a considerable clinngo for the reason that !o.sso.s on tho field have been enormously greater than the losses In man power in tho field ot Industr}- at homo, aud while the industrial and procUictlon field may still have a groat need ot his services, tho array neod.s hjo services to a vastly greater extent. Wo had an illustration ot the reverse position in Britain oarly In tho war. There was such a rush to recruit that Britain was stripped ot mechanics ,and when tho munitions department was thoroughly organized it was found that there was a great scarcity ot mechanics to man tlie munitions factories. The result was that Lloyd George was able to show tho army officials that the mechanics were more needed at home than in tho army, and they were taken from the trenches and put t'o work at the lathe. There is no reason why this precedent should not work in the opposite direction. If tho men of Canada are more needed in tho trenches than in the fields there is no reaeon why they should no/ be transferred. It is quite possible that tho machinery set up for the transfer may have been faulty but that is no good cause for tho impasse which has arisen between the military and the courts ot this province. It looks to The Herald as if we were losing our perspective. We are concentrating our minds on the incidfent rather than tho whole war situation. It really doesn't make verj-much difference whether five, ten, or a hundred men in Alberta are taken or-left at home. But if tho process of removing, them from the . army and placing them back in their civil occupations, or vice vers.!., is to bring our military and our courts into conflict, we are doing just so much to destroy confidence in our institutions and the morale of our people at home is being destroyed to just that extent. We cannot see why there should be this, conflict. The matter of tlie machinery to be uSed in securing'men for the -army was settled by the people ot Canada last December. It was settled wlthDut the question ot a doubt. It would be iOetter for all concerned" It there .were a little more effort conciliate the differences between the courts and the military along the lines denoted by tho peoj)le of Canada at the general election. Talking about the constitutionality of this order or that here in Canada, three thousand miles from the battle zone, �Isn't going to win the war. -^PICKED UP IN PA SSIJVG wi? r�g wsr MM> ,1^0StNQ SIGHT OF THE MAIN ISSUE.

His house and furniture have been purchased by the trustees of the Barons and Whitelake Methodist Churches. The house -will hepooforth be used as a parsonage.' ' iir.' and Mrs. D. E.:Kennedy, who have been visiting friends at'Olds and Blackie, returned home yesterday. The:lips and downs of the Barons Baseball Olub are terrible to relate. The old-timers and the regulars met again last week to decide finally the basebairsupremacy ot. the town. The game developed into a cricket match and resulted in a tie, each side scoring no less than 16 runs. Pretty rotten! On Friday evening the regulars travelled to Granum. and lost to the best nine of that town by a score of 9 to 7. Not so bad. On Tuesday evening tho team visited Champion and got walloped so badly (26 runs to 7) that all hope of tholr ever being ballplayers was given up. Yesterday evening, however, Claresholm paid us a visit and the homo team surpriseil the populace by playing a nice snappy ganio and winning by a scon} of 9 runs to 3. The question is. What are we to expect next? A McLaughlin touring car (License No. 22139 drived by a foreigner called Meet, was seized yesterday under a sheriff's warrant, at tho instanco of James Beguin, a Foremost automobile dealer. It 'appears that the car \vas sold -by Mr. Beguin to a man named Smith on the Instalment plan, the deailer holding a lion against it for the'unpaid 'balance, ot the price. Smith skipped across t!ho border to escape the draft and Meet got possession of tho car. He claims to have .paid 1600 for It and has placed his case In the hands of Mr. J. Donovan, .barrlstor, ot this town. Last night the "Londonlan Belles", a travelling- company of entertainers, igave a performance In tlio Barons Opera House. .
