Tho premier replied that it was. Can't Promise Exemption. In reply to a question by Mr. Lem-loux. Sir Robert said no person In the "country liad tho allghlost authority to promise exemption from niiWtary �service. It was utterly out of the question. Tho Htand taken by tho jnembors of the govornmont throughout was that such niullers must be iietormlnod by Iho exemption tribunals according to their best judgment. Civil Service Act. The house then resumed nonsidora-tlon In committee ot the bill to amend the civil service act. Mr. Turriff suggested that provisions be made whore-by civil ."iorvants ,^ppolnted in tho future would not bo pornilttod to vte at Dominion elections. Mr. Jacques Bureau Introduced an amondinont to section 30 which had to do with the dismissal of employees. Tho section as it now stands provides that eraijloyees shall bo dlamlRsod by the governor in councli. Mr. IJureau's araondihoat iilaclis this power in tho hands of tiio civil service commission. U provides that in the case of deputy ministers tiio roconiinendatlon for dismissal or removel shall come from the minister; in the case of other employees from the deputy minlHter.

MacLcan said the power ot dIsmlaslnB employees should he thought, rem�ln with the Kovernor In counril. He asked Mr. Hureau to let hia amendment stand for further con-ulderatlou. Mr. Dureau stated that he would have .some copies of the amendment made for distribution. Mr. Monken aubmitted an amendment requiring the civil service commission to publish' a list of appointments made during tho year, and showing the relationship by "blood or marriage" of tho appointees with any persons now In the civil ervice. Mr. McQuarrle, New Westminster, thought the question was one of the efficiency of an official rather than or his relationship with any other public servant. Mr, MacLean observed that the purpose of tho amendment was to destroy nepotism by publicity. He did not think, that generally speaking, there had been wide abuses ot this kind 1^ tho inside'service. Afternoon Session When consideration of tho , civil service bill was resumed In tho house in committee thii afternoon, Mr. Hocken with tho consent ot the com-mltteb withdrew his amendment ro-qulrlns the publication of names of relatives In the civil service. Ho then Hubniitted another amendment extending its scope. The new amendment prov.'rted for the publication of a report showing names "ot any relatives by blood or marriage in the government service, in tho senate, in the house ot commons, or in the civil service," of any appointee to a civil po.-itlon.' Mr. Nicholson remarked that the posilion taken in the amendment waB adopted by certain large ".orporatlons Komn years ago, but they found it in-a^Miuate and, unworthy. In Mr. Nicholson's opinion, the amendment would simply bring an efficient civil servant Into contumely simply because he happened to have Home relatives in the iiouse ot commons. Mr. Henders said that the civil service commission had been appointed to eliniiuate such evil as those to which the amendment was directed. Colonel Currle thought It was ad-viBable to have some check on deputy ministers so that they could be pre-vonted from putting In their own relatives. H. n. Morphy, Perth, said that many families in Ottawa enjoyed great advantages because member after member liad secured positions in the civil i'crvlce. Tho family next door might bo unable, through lack of influence, to got any of Its members placed. He declared that favoritism should be abolished. Not Careful of Feelines R .L. niclmrdson thought that the amendment might prove a deterrent to deputy ministers who wished to secure appointments for their relatives. The house, he said, need' not bo too careful about hurting the feelings ot civil servants by- publishing the names of all relatives employed In the service. Ho saw no reason why the amendment should not carry. Donald Sutherland was ot the opinion that it .would bo a, good thing to turn the light ot publicity on the service.
