unanimous Buchanan replied as follows May Dear am in receipt of a re solution passed at a meeting in War ner on the 4th of I note the arguments you advance against the cancellation of I want to be quite candid with and to say at once that there Is no possibil ity of the action laken by Ihe Gov ernment being The deci sion was reached after the most ser ious consideration of conditions at the Reinforcements were ur gently and they had to be secured and it was decided to cancel all exemptions existing at present tn Class One and to call up from that class all men of the ages of 21 and and in these ages Imy and clover is reported as winter compared with 9 per last The condition in percentage of tho standard representing a full crop I is 84 for all Canada as compared with I 86 last For

to have called men from other and there would have been no much de lay In following the procedure under the Military Service that It would have been impossible to suffi cient meft overseas to rolnftfreo our gallant AdvlMd of members of we were advised of the critical situation that on the Western Tho danger of tha annihilation of the Canadian divisions existed at still and when we were informed of all the clrcuin Ihere was only the one thing to and that was to assume our responsibility and meet the sit uation Conditions have onllre ly changed on the Western front since last fall and early The enemy has made wonderful und Ihe only way lo slop them Is by supplying all tho man power pos Those of us who arc chosoit to sit in Parliament and act on war measures at this time have a very great and wo cculd not afford to think of individual cases of hardship when Ihe danger of de feat was facing the The Military Service never for the exemption of any It is true that tribunals largely exempted farmers on ground that Ihey were required at home to pro luce during the last couple of the demand for men is more important than the de and that demand has to be I imagine that the farmers in your district are concerned about labor for taking off the I think I am safe In Buying that the men for this work will be obtained at that and the crop will be taken The Government is fully alive to the need in this I might point out that men like Henders of as well as who are in Inti mate touch with the needs of agri culture in Weatern would have never supported Ihe cancella tion of exemptions if they had not thought that this action was abso lutely necessary to assist In winning the These men are also alive to the farm labor and are sallsfled lhat measures will be taken to provide the necessary labor nt bar vest Need of the I noticeyou demand that the Mili tary Service Act as originally passed and sanctioned by the people be In times of war condi tions change In a day or a and they must be mot not necessarily by existing but by measures lhat will properly maintain the honor of our our country arid our The present jfovernment was returned with the authority of the people of Canada to proaecfUe the war effectively and That is all that it Is doing at the present War have chang nnd thegovernment has changed the law to meet those You will remember that Wilson was reelected in 1U16 largely because ho had the support of a liost of peo pie who approved of his course in Keeping the Untied States put of war There was no thought that lie wanted to bring the United States into the war if he were again elected Presi Yet he had only been in office a few weeks when he twas responsible for n declaration Why Con ditions had and to upholc tiie honor of the United States anc meet those changed he was compelled to adopt a course thai was entirely contrary to the views ol thousands of people who supported him In the election only a few months Woodrow Wilson simply accepled the responsibility of his high office and met the changed condl tions boldly and The government of Ottawa is in very much the same Compared with other countries of the world Canada and its people have not yet realized what tho war When wo think of the sacrifices made by the people of Britain and our sacrifices have been very very This government may havo to adopt many drastic measures be fore the waria and surely the people should have confidence that the government would not adopt these measures unless tha situation abso lutely warranted I desire It to be distinctly under stood that the cancellation of exemp tions only applies to Class and at tha present time only three ages in that class are being called It may not be necessary to call up any more though I am not giving that such will be the soon as the exemptions were cancelled thousands men came forward In ami we arj getting men from that province In greater proportion than any other at the present With tho exemp tion system as it existed the process of appeals prevented men being secured as rapidly as they were and the exigencies of the sit demanded consequently it was decided to cant eel exemptions V I fully realize the demands forpro duction but 1 think farmers of Western Canada are prepared to make sacrifices ordertu not only provide but more for the winning of the In conclusion Idesire to reiterate that there isno possibility whatever of the cancellation order being res It was endorsed by every member supporting tho as well as certain members supporting the The members of par liament were supplied with all the facts about the war and acted as those facts Their course may be unpopular with many people but the war cannot bo won by consideration of IndivldQi al We must think of the wel fare of tho country a a whole act we consider in the beat intertit of the country now and in the 1 might also repeat that I am latiifled Ihe government is prepared to meet the demands or the provisionof la bor at harvest I have placed the situation before you as candidly as I fully appreciate your vlewi but 1 am confident that tho course taken in cancelling exemp tions was fully warranted
