But when one conflidera, that in the past 12 montiss oontrACtsTiaTe been awarded Canadian shipyard9 for 89 ships totaling 339,333 tons and valued at $64,- 500,000, it may he readily seen that shipbuilding has become in industry of the greatest Importance to Can-ada. The question arises: Will this industry continue after the war, and " how will it affect Western Canada? It is hard to say definitely that Can--ada, will'continue to build ships after - the war, hut there is no good argument why she -should not. War's ne- - # demanded the oonstruc- cessity has tion of new m - sion of old .yards have ! cial and business nature.

He would spurn an offer ot ; $30,000 for his farm and outfit today. Mr. Ironquill's case is not an Isolated one at File Hills. There*are � other Indians who are equally prosperous, and there are a number who are following close, bui he likes to learn as well as to work. He is likewise proud to be one of those who have proven that an Indian can do things as well as a white man if he is given a chance. It might be of interest also to state that Mrs. Ironciuill does not always enjoy the best of health, so Mr. Ironquill has engaged for her a white housekeeper, whose husband la also an employee of the Irontjuill estate. What hai been done at File Hills ought to be practicable at other re-j serves. Some of the finest agricultural land in the west is possessed by the Indians but very little of it is used for agriculture for the simple reason, in most cases, that the Indians do not know anything about agriculture. That they will acquire the knowledge and become good farmers la proven by the File Hills success. The efforts that are to be made this year to increase production by cultivating more land on Indian reserves will be followed with sympathetic interest. If we can get our younger Indians to take up fanning seriously, many of the problems o* the Indian in Western Canada will be solved. More than that much idle land will be brought under cultivation and new wealth will be created. Every reserve should possess as the representative of the government an agent with high ambitions for Lome Learn, a young Port Bur-well man, who eloped with another man's wife, spending his honeymoon in Niagara Falls, was arrested on his return, charged with the non-support oi his wife find child.

In the first place, it is. at present impossible to force a merchant into Voluntary liquidation, even when it is well known that he is bankrupt. He may be sued by many creditors but this process is costly and slow. In j the second place there, is no method at present whereby an honest debtor who lias surrendered all his property to ,meet his liabilities can secure a clear release and quittance. In the third place, the costs of liquidation have been excessive and the process has been slow. Letter No, VIII.-The Military Service Act Ottawa.-Up to tho middle of February, "according tn the figures made public by the Military Council, of tho twenty. .IhohHand draftees who were actually Id uniform, as tho result tvf the. Military Service act, only 2,000 wore from the province of QuebeJV and of these 1,000 were French-speak-'; ing. U mightthus be argued tlvat o-ne i of the objects aimed at by the Military. Service act -- the partial equality-tion of contributions to the expeditionary force by. the various sec-, tiohs of the Domintou--has not been reached. The proportion of French i enlistments under the voluntary sys*! tern was about one in twenty (instead of one lu fourl; i\od this Is tire T>rq* portion which, to date, is being mahi^ talncd under compulsory enlistment. But, of course, the end is not yet. The Canadian system of compulsory recruiting followed the British and not the Vnitod States example. In our sister country to the south the draft was made by lottery following compulsory registration, with exemptions, under certain conditions, for those thus drawn. The British system is that of selection. The whole military class Is put through the mill and those most eligible to servo are chosen-. There has been at least a temporary breakdown of our system in Quebec; but it is by no means certain that the IL S. method would have worked better. In the U.S. exemptions were also determined upon by neighborhood tribunals; and it has been tribunals of this character which have blocked the effective working of the Canadian act. In Quebec there has been almost universal conspiracy to make the operation of the draft 'difficult. Everybody has been in it: members of the tribunals, lawyers, dueivrs, judges; if in some cases the military representatives were not themselves parties, they contributed powerfully! by their indifference and incompet-1 ence. It is, beyond question that-wholly inadequate machinery was i provided by tho late government for j the application of the selective draft1 to the province of Quebec. The law itself presumes the co-operation of the community; and can only be partially effective where it encounters concerted, or even passive, resistance by the people. Cut in Quebec there, was not even reasonable provision for the enforcement of the act. The government showed poor judgment in the selection of those members of "the tribunals who were, indirectly, its choice; and was even more unfortunate in" its choice of military representatives. The whole business was badly bungled. One result is the 32,000 appeals from the exemptions granted by the local tribunals made by the military \ authorities, which are now clogging j the courts of t^ie province of Quebec. Whore the court upholds *fue doclHlou of the tribunal, and in tho majority of cases this. Is. the desire of tho judge if he can find a colorable excuse for such a decision, a further appeal is necessary to tho central appeal judKe at Ollnwa. At tho present rate of progress-it would take until next August to dispone of these eases. 'I'hc passive rostsfern are, of course, playing for delay. Hut powers are operating to counteract this elaborate machinery to block the' operations of the law. The necessity of speeding up tho hearing of the cases is being impressed upon the judges; and tho appointment. �f a largo number of special judges to hear these appeals is also being considered. What is more likely to happen, howovur. Is that parliament will cut the Gordian knot by drastic legislation, which will facilitate the re-opening of the whole question of tho liability or members of class I to service. There will probably bo special machinery for reconsidering exemption and expediting dtscislons -while the law will bo of Dominion-wide application, of course, it will he most invoked where thcro is most need of it. A minimum recruitment of 20,000 from class A from the province ot Quebec under the. Military Service act within tho next, few months Is confidently predicted by a high official of tho militia department. Making allowance for tho unusually high percentage of young married men (due to the settled policy of the church in insisting upon early marriageai and the legitimate grounds Tor exemption which are to be found In agricultural communities, this would not be a disproportionate contribution. It is indlsfr putablo that Quebec will never have to assume anything like her duo share of the burden of this war in the contribution of man t>o\ver until a levy is made on class two. The percentage of available men for service In this (dass is far higher in Quebec than In any other section of Canada. The object of the Military Service act was to make It certain that sufficient reinforcements could *he oh- j tained to keep our divisions at the � front-four in number-at. full fight- j ing strength. To do this it was esti-j mated that it would be necessary to | have power to recruit 100,000 men. | The Military Service act-though It i no such volume of re-; early stages of its  had been expected by s will fill the bill. For' lias, replaced apprehension on the part of the military authorities overseas over the possibility ot a cessation of recruits by a certainty that the people Of Canada will sec that the men are forthcoming if it .is necessary to call up the whole five classes to supply them. Because of this confidence they are sending men forward more freely: from the reserves in England. Mean-; while there is a steady stream of I recruits going over the sea- thef public hears nothing of this because! they proceed steadily from tho depot i battalions without any of the cere-; has produced emits in the operations as most people-one thing, it mouial leavo-lakingB which In tho old days marked the departure of the volunteer battalions. This stream will grow in volume with.ovary week that passes. During tha first five months of the operation of the Military Servico act. -August to January inclusive - th** Canadian army, fronr all sources, was increased by nearly 60,000 men. Of these 15,000 were voluntary recruits; and of these, ageln, BO per ceut. were from the United States. A considerable proportion of these rocrults can (bo Justly credited to the imminence of compulsion in both countries. Over 30,000 imen are in sight from class one, of whom 21,000 were actually in uniform by tho middle of February. The others will eonio into the array as called. To bring the number oi recruit* up to the required quota, another 60,00l> men will be needed; where can they 1?e got? First, thera are over BO.OOi) appeals pending, of which over 3o,000 are in the province of Quebec. The appeal mill* will grind out; a steady supply of recruit* - there ought to be 20,000 men, at least, from this source alone. Then it Is quite certain that the whole of class ono will be combed out again, with a view to ^gathering in men wbj� secured exemptions in the first placa by misrepresentation. Than thcro are tho defaulters who did not register. Men of this cla&a are beung picked up by the military police in all parts of Canada-seven*afl thousand men will be secured by these means. Men who have entered their 20th year since July 7, 1017 - exempt under the Military sWvice act - will bo called up and provision will be made that men will automatically be called to the colors upon reaching their 20th birthday. It is estimated that about 4,500 young men pass this boundary line every month; so thcro will bo hero a class of some 35,000 or 40,000 men from which, after making allowance for exemptions, a largo number of recruits can be secured. Thus, from one source wind another, recruits are in prospect for the required quota. Behind all this, of course, stands class two, which is a great reservoir of man power. By a. judicious selective process, 20,000 men could be taken^ out of this class without any noticeable dislocation of industry. The hundred thousand men called for by the Military Service bo got. They will come Steadily -as needed. This will meet the requirements army for 1918 and for the months of MU9. If the war beyond the summer of 1910, we have, of necessity, to set about ing another hundred thousand men: and there will be no alternative to calMng the higher classes. act can forward number of the first lasts shall raia- MTf YOU DON'T NEED A � I REVOLVING HEAD TO PLOW WITH A MO LINE UNIVERSAL TR AC TOR______ � shipyards and the exten- established -one3.
