WORK FOR EX-SOLDIERS. The new scheme for the improvement of the facilities to enable Army Reserve men and dis- charged soldiers to obtain employment, which is the outcome of the deliberations of Sir Ed- ward Ward's committee, has been issued in the form of an Army order. Agencies have been formed all over the country, at which regis- ters of men needing employment will be kept. It is. pointed out that the object aimed at is, if possible, to give every ex-soldier of good cha- racter a fair start in civil life, and every effort will be made to obtain a suitable situation for him. "The necessity for re-entering civil employ- nient as early as possible is earnestly impressed Upon all ex-soldiers," says the order, "and they are urged to accept employment, even though at a smaller wage than they had wished, rather than waste their time in idleness. They can later, on continue, their search for more re- munerative situations. They should husband their resources and maintain their respectable appearance and self-respect, as they will thus be more likely to be successful in obtaining suitable situations. The necessity of strict so- briety should, moreover, be borne in mind by all candidates for employment." Each agency will be directly under the super- vision of the officer commanding each regi- Qental district, and efforts will be made by of tlle register to obtain ymerit for the men whose names are entered. The success of the scheme, it is pointed out, must, in a great measure, depend upon the manner in which the character of men on their discharge is estimated and recorded. "If men recommended as of 'good' charac- ter are found to be untrustworthy or unsteady, the confidence of employers of labour will not be gained, and the scheme must prove a failure. On the other hand, if, on account of compara- tively trifling irregularities of a purely military nature, men are refused a good character, their subsequent career in civil life is injuriously affected, to the detriment of the popularity of the service and of the success of recruiting. The responsibility, therefore, of commanding officers in this respect is very great, and their special attention is directed to the subject."
