THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR There is still very little ground for optimism over the submarine situa- lice in some proportion equal to the sacrifice to be made by" the men called up under conscription, they will do much to make the whole plan of conscription more popular. The conscription bill brqught down by Premier Hrden is by no means perfect. It .is called selective conscription, but outside the/net that the bill provides for the catling up of men in classes commencing with the younper and unmarried men. it does not contain machinery for making it truly selective as'is the case in the I'nited States where registration was a part of the selective conscription plan. The government In the bill announced at Ottawa, does not take the initiative in selecting those men who may be considered least needed for production at home. This is left to the individuals who, if they believe they are more needed for production than on the firing line, mil?* apply for exemption. It is n question whether this will There are many men. who. when their classes arc called, will go. on the assumption that they are more needed in the trenches than they are at home no matter what vocation they may be following here. They will feel that they have no moral right to apply for exemption when friends similarly placed are going. These men will report with the rest of the class. The ^PICKED UP INJ3M>me amended form of the bill which 'Jj-was introduced the other day by (^Premier Borden. Their amendments, among other I,'. ^changes, will call upon wealth.,t:p pay li'xfiBjijpreater sharp in the. prope^^m of '''^ tho war. If liio Liberals can Suggest ; (omo plan whore by wealth will Bacri- Tho Herald is in favor of conscription but we want to see it accompanied by the best plan of securing the men without wrecking the industries of the country and we want to see wealth pay in proportion to the, sacrifices being made by the men who are fighting in the trenches and giving up their lives for King and.,coun-try. Premier Borden has shown himself strong enough to introduce con scription of men. Let him now assert himself and make wealth pay. !f he conscripts one without an effort to make tho other shoulder 11v share he will be bowing to the monled interests at.the expense of Uio man-power of the nation.
