At the close ot the time lor registra- tion, last Saturday, there Sad been registered at the government ofilce, -112 names, and out ol those 195 had been passed by the medical eiamlners us Class A men, the remainder being classed in the lower classes. The ex- emption board Is now at work on claims for exemption which are num eroua, but many are being refused. i Four men were rounded up this. morning who had failed to report, and j these four men are being sent to the1 coast tomorrow, under military escort, and their cases will be dealt Kith by the military authorities. This action has taken -many people by snrprlse. bul the regulations were specific and particular pains have been taken lo notify all who are subject, under the regulations to call lo service, and It looki as though-they have made the mistake of forfeiting any claim for eiemptlon they say havs had, by their neglect to obey the summons to regis- ter uuSer the act. There are many throughout this big district who have reported but are liv- ing a long ivay from Fernle, and the examanlng board .will probably vhiit Crtnbrook and other places in order to save these.men transportation char- ges and other expenses.
