Ottawa, July. 19.-Consideration ot the military service bill was resumed In committee of the homo of commons this afternoon, shortly after the house met. Replying to a question by Hon. Charles Marcll, Solicitor-General Meighen said that there is a provision in the bill allowing professional men of military age, when called out, time to wind up their business. Hon. Rodolpho Lcmieux repeated his Inquiry as to the payment of tho insurance premiums on policies hold by men called to tho colors. He said the question was a sorious one for many people and tho government should either assume the oxcoss premiums or to protect conscripts by amending tho insurance act. Hon. George V. Graham said that the Bmaller Insurance companies are not able to take war risks. If a maximum premium were fixed theso companies might hm put out of business. Tho government, however, might assume the liability hwolTed in tho higher premiums. Hon. William Pugsloy said he had heon informed that the I'nited States government had assumed liability for the insurance up to |4,000. Sir Robert Borden said there is much force in what Mr. Graham had said. The finance minister, he added, had just returned from Washington and he would take the question up with him. The question was one which could not be dealt with in connection with this bill. Sir Robert Borden moved that the clause exempting clergy and divinity students be reconsidered. On further consideration, he said it had been decided that the words "divinity students" Included a wider body of persons than was at first ^thought. Moreover, It covered a class a large number of whom do not desire exemption. It was suggested that these students, should be left to take advantage of such exemptions "or exemption might be granted by tribunal. Sir Wilfrid Laurler questioned the meaning of the word clergy. The two great denominations, Anglican and Roman Catholic had ordained priests whom they called the clergy. Did the words in the act also apply to the ministers of the Presbyterian, Baptist and other religious bodies? Sir Robert replied that the ministers of all recognized denominations were included. Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux suggested I that all divinity students who have commenced thflf courses before tho bill Is fonaaily �esjtyoaed, should bo exempt Sir Sam Hughes opposed the exemption of the oJenjry as a class. Sir Wilfrid Laurler said that if tho clause were restored to Its .original form a largo number of young men who ought to be exempt would be affected-men not yet a part of tho clergy. Ho disagreed with the views of Sir Sam Hughes. That had been tho law rn Franco but it was strongly objected to. Franco would have done hotter to have followed tho law of Great Britain, where the clergy arc exempt from military service. He hoped the prime minister would not persist In his proposal. 81r Robert Borden repllod that If tho government had proceeded tinder the mllltla act, and selected men by ballots there would bo no possible ex-omptlon of divinity stmlonts. Under this bill thoy can claim exemption from tho tribunals. EXPECT ANOTHER BRITISH DRIVE (By Charles H. Grastyl General Headquarters in France, July 16.-(Dolaywdv-Tho British front has been particularly interesting for the last few days, both because of tho presence hero of the king and queen and ot the general expectation of nnother offensive. The contrast between present con-ditons and those prevailing when I visited the front last February is striking. The British were thou fighting In the worst conditions imaginable whereas now the wcathor is favorable and all jfher conditions make for optimism. The effect of big movements, such as America's rounding into form, the failure of the submarine warfare to accomplish its much-Reraidad objects, the Internal eruption in Germany, and Russia's return to hostilities, are felt In every trench and dugout, but the soldiers' deepest sensibilities are touched by what is concrete and nearest him. The walloping of Frlti at Messines was not militarily important, , but humanly it was most encouraging and must be rated above larger things in Its effect on the morale of the army. Officers and men are beginning to feel suro of themselves as a fighting body.
