What Alberta Judges Think of Order-Council Cancelling Exemption The Ruiiremo court of the province, approved of the motion of fl. U. Dennett granting release from military service of Normi'.n iOarl Lewis by writ of habeas corpus. The -tollowilrg are some of the points In tlio judgments of,the judges: 'ft parliament had intended to grant power to override aiud re-Deal ll.s own acts. I think it would have said so specifically, and would liave inserted the words 'notwithstanding anything contained in any act of parliament,' though 1 do not think l)arliament would have passed the act wlih such'words in It even if it had boon asked to do so. At any rate, the words arc not there, although we are asked now to Interpret the act as it tlioy were there."-Mr. Justice Htiiurt. "Men holding exemption certificates �grAntod by lawfully constituted tribunals are. by statute, exempt from service.

"It is a general rule of construction tliat recourse mav be had to some acts of tho legislature to determine the intent and meaning of a parliamentary statute because, of course, it is for | tho legislature to say what it means. It seems to mo that the resolution passcil bv the two houses is a perfectly good declaration by pavliameut that the order-in-council Is within the terms oC the powers conferred on the govornorln-council l)y tho war measures a ? * > > SIIPEOE WILL BE FASIEST AFFAIR OFKINDINWESI Alagistnilt' Irwin iinnosed liislieav-iost sentence since his appointment as a magistrate this afternoon wiien he sentenced Hertio A.
