Answers to" questions that may a-  riso in minds of prospective bond  in i re I lasers. Knots of great campaign  to raise money to finance Canada's  share in aohiovoing success over  Gwrinan arms.  Q.    What is a Victory Loan?  A.    It is a loan of money by the  people of Canada to the Government  .('.).    By whom is the loan authorized?  A. The loan is authorized under  Act of Parliament of Canada.  Q. Why does the government borrow money.  A. To pay all extraordinary military expenditures. To create a credit in Canada by which England can  purchase food and munitions. Unless this credit were established,  England would be compelled ,to buy  in the United States, where credit  would be established. ,  Q. Are not the ordinary receipts'  of our Government from taxes sufficient to do this?  A. The ��������� administration of the  country's affairs is being ca!rried on  as before the war and at the same  expense. Increased taxation meets a  portion only of the cost of the war.  Extraordinary conditions require extraordinary expenditures and necessi  tate borrowings to cover same.  Q.    How is the Government going  to raiset his large amount of money?  A.    By borrowing from the people  Q.    What is a Government Bond?  A.    It is the direct and unconditional promise.of the    Dominion    of  Canada to pay upon a certain date a  specific sum of money together with  interest at a specified rate,  payable  at specific dates until the bond matures,  or is called  for redemption.  Q. What are the requisites of a  bond?  A.     1st, its safety; 2nd, its marketability;   3rd,  its interest yield.  Q.     Has our    country    sold    war  | bonds before, and if so how much and  when?  A.     $100,000,000.00 in December,  1915; $100,000,000 in October 191 G;  $150,000,000 in March, 1017.  Security, the lies-t  Q.     Can I change nonds of old issues  for new?  A. Yes, at the price of issue of  the old bonds. But you cannot tohc  up less of the new issue than the  amount of the old issue surrendered,  each class of bond taken at its issue  price. For instance���������if you have  $1,000 face value of old.bonds purchased at issue price of $96. these  are worth for exchange into the new-  issue $9GO. You must therefore.buy  $1,000 of the new issue and pay the  difference.  Q. Has Canada issued bonds before and if so has ;i. ever failed to  pay all its bonds when they became  due?  A. Canada has borrowed money  on bond issues ever since Confederation was affected, and has always  promptly paid the bonds when due.  .Q Could anything happen that  would make it impossible to pay the  bond?  A. Nothing could happen unless  Germany wins the war. Their victory would cause you to lose your  bond and probably all your other belongings. But this is a Victory Loan  to prevent the Germans having any  say in the matter.  Q. Can the Government make me  buy a bond?  A. No, but in a Victory Loan  everybody should be only too willing  As a patriotic citizen you will no  doubt do your duty.  Q. 1 have bought bonds and  stocks before from people I did not  know and the results have not been  satisfactory. How do I know everything is all right in this intsance?  A. The salesman does not', ask.  you to give him money. Any cheque  made out in payment is to be made  in favor of (Credit Minister of Finance). The cheque cannot be cashed save at the order of the Department of Finance at Ottawa.  Q. If these bonds are so good,  why don't the banks and big people  take them all?  A. The banks and big people are  buying them and still want them.  Q. Why should not the insurance  and mortgage companies be made to  lend money to the Government?  A. They are voluntary subscribing all they can spare out of the ord  inary channels of their business and  still maintain their usefulness in the  community. To call in loans already  ma do to municipalities, business men'  and farmers for the purpose of buying- Government bonds would seriously einbarass the, whole country and  would not add to the total supply  of money.  Terms Easy  Q.    Will 1  have the right to exchange these bonds, if ones at a better rate are issued?  A.    Yes.  Q. Are Victory Bonds exempt  from taxes?  A. They are exempt from all taxes imposed by the Dominion Government.  Q.    Can I buy a bond on the instalment plan?  A.    Yes.  Q. If 1 desire to pay for the bond  at the time of subscription, may I  do so'? ^  A.  ' Yes.  Q. If I pay in full do I, receive  the bond?  A.    Your   own   bank   will   receive ���������  the money, give you an acknowledgement, and undertake to procure the  bond  from the Government and deliver it to you.  Q. If 1 lose my bond can I get  another?  A. Yes, if a bond is registered. No  if it is the ordinary coupon bond  pa,yable to the bearer. The latter is  like the case of a dollar bill; if you  lose it, it is gone.  Q. What is my security for payment of .principal? .  A... The whole of the resources of  Canada' including all public property  and all the property of all the people.  Q. Who is going to guarantee  that my interest will be promptly  paid?  A. The Dominion of Canada's entire rcedit responsibility.  Q. Will all the banks take a bond  as security?  A. Yes, and it will be guilt-edged  security. Every chartered bank in  Canada will accept these bonds as excellent security.  , Interest Paid Regularly  Q.    What percentage will the bank  lend me?  A. From '80 per cent to 90 per  cent of their par value, or $80 or $90  on each $100 bonds.  Q. When will the interest be paid  and  how?  A. Interest will be paid every six  months and you can have it paid in  coupons or cheque���������just as you prefer.  Q.    Will  it  cost me anything  to  collect my interest?  A.    No.  Q. How do I collect?  A. ��������� There are two methods. With  the coupon bond, you .merely cut off  the coupon every six months. These  coupons' are payable to bearer and  will be cashed at any chartered bank.  If bonds are "registered" your interest is sent at the expiration of every  six months from Ottawa. Remember  that a bond grows a coupon every  six months and when this coupon is  cut off and spent, yutir bond is just  cut off and spent, your bond is just  as  valuable as  it  was  before.  Q. Should a married woman use  hc-r own name or her husband's?  A Her own. Mrs. Mary Sr.>wn:  not Mrs. John Brown.  Q. Do I have to keep the bend  until maturity?  A. They can be sold any business  day on the financial market.  Q. Can the Government keep my  money any longer than the   term?  A. The Government has no moral  or legal right to keep your money  longer than the term of-the bond.  Q. Suposing I want to sell my  bond?  A. Any bank, trust company, reliable bond dealer or broker will be  glad to sell your bond for you at  any time.  Q. What would a broker charge  me for selling my bond?  A. One-quarter of 1 per cent par  value, or 25������ on each $100 bond.  Q. I cannot afford to tie my money up. I may n������ed it any time?  A. Any bank in Canada will loan  on these bonds up to practically the  face value, or the value as then  quoted on the market. There is no  security  issued   anywhere  on which  (Continued THE ABBOirSFOTtlhPOST, ABBOTSFORD.

It is hoped now thai Westminster  has done the right and proper thing  that New Westminster city and district' will get down to business, and  support their .Unionist, candidate and  all  will  be serene.  Might we mention, without creating a storm of' indignation.' liiat the  convention today could very well have  done without the 'yolf-iniposod' advice of a legal- l'������"liL from New Wcsf-  , minster. As a political peace-maker  ho might be doing good work in 'his  own city, where perhaps his remarks  would  have been  better appreciated.  The out great outstanding feature  of public life in Canada -during the  past week has boon the groat. Victory  Loan which Dominion, Government  has placed before the people of Canada. Tho Government, aro asking  the peoplo of Canada to subscribe to  a loan- for $ 1 50,000,000 "in order to.  create a credit for England so that  trade-may be carried on with this fair  Dominion of ours and the great heart  of   the Empire.  Should this loan be a success it  will be the means of preventing England getting war supplies in the United States where the credit is good  for any amount desired. It is a patriotic matter with us all in'two ways  It is a loan to ourselves to' help us  carry on the business of war. It is  a patriotic loan in the' fact that it  will help to win tho war, probably  sooner. It is patriotic also in the  fact that it shows the feeling of the  Canadian people towards tho successful upholding the rights of the Allies.  The'".man who subscribes to the loan  ���������even if only a small amount���������has  a personal interest in tho winning of  the war.'  The terms of the loan are made so  that- almost every person can invest.  Ten per cent down and the balance  spread over until May, ��������� .1.913, and  further, money can be borrowed from  the banks at the rate of fi M> % the  tame as the intercut on the bonds.  This helps in this, way, that if a person subscribes and something turns  turns up that he is disappointed in  not having the money when the time  comes, ho can borrow from the bank  ��������� to make tho payment, thus uot losing  what he has already paid in.  Liko the other' loans of the government'the amount could be oasily borrowed from the capitalists of the  country, but this is not the idea of  the government���������they want the money from the common people. It will  show to the Government the popularity of the winning of the war is in  Canada.  S TIE WORLD'S, BEST CHEW  It is' manufactured  tobacco in its purest  form.  ..  It has a pleasing  flavor..

WM,MM>glWilflWWIinwiflB^^  It eeeniB painful that tluvre is s,o  much difference of opinion these days  about the advisability of supporting  Canada's Union government. The  return of the Union Government to  power at Ottawa at the coining election is of the" utmost importance to  Canada. It means for a' certainly  that Canada will continue in the war,  uninterruptedly, and that soldier  wlil be on their way to France at an  early date. The return of tho baur-  icr party to power at Ottawa may L>e  in the end all right but the boys now  in the trenches will have to wait a  great doal longer, according to our  reading of the manifesto, to be relieved. We read of our boys being  "killod" "gassed" "wounded aiu  missing" yet we talk of supporting a  'government that will not take quick  action in sending men. to their relief.  The lines are clear cut. The duty in  the mattor of voting are also clear  cut. There was never such a clear  cut issue placed before the people cf  Canada as there is today. We are  given the outlined path which the one  party will carry out, and the other is  a dim issue, with great possibilities  of the main issue, the war, being lost  sight of altogether owing to loca  jealousies and selfish aims.
