' But  the new war loan is a straight way business proposition: safe, profiatble and convenient.

Clarkson, formerly constable  in Mission City, but nowa returned  soldior, waB a visitor to Mission City  on Tuesday. He has been invalided  home on account of rheumatism. All  were pleased  to see him again.  /���������/���������  T TP to date the war has cost Canada about $700,000,000.  Canada has. spent, in Canada over $400,000,000 on her own account  ' Canada has spent in Canada on behalf of Great Britain over $300,000,000,  -What Canada spends for Great Britain is really loaned to Great Britain  and will be repaid -or credited to Canada later on.  \  Great Britain needs so much ready  cash- to finance her own expenditures at  home for herself and for our Allies that she  must-buy on credit .from Canada, .and from  every other country where she can get  credit.  Of course Great Britain's credit, is so  good that other countries,in order to get Jier  trade, ;are -quite as willing to give nercredit  as we are in -Canada.  Canada wants to help-Great Britain  not only because 'Canada wants Britain's  trade but because we lare Canada and she is  Great B ri tain���������-bo th. .members - of the same  great Empire, kin of our. kin, our. motherland.  For 'Canada it is -both. a. 'filial and  patriotic duty to supply Great-" Britain's  war needs and remember., her-needs are our  needs. Abo it is. in Canada's, self-interest  . to supply those needs and- thus -keep .-open  a market for-ourjproducts.  * * *  Now, Britain needs our wheat, our  cheese, cattle, hogs, and many manufactured articles.  .  Canada, also needs many of these tilings  ���������between the two it amounts ;to more  than a million dollars-.a.day in cash.  ���������And the producers- must, be paid in  cash.  Neither Canada -nor" Great- Britain  could go lo a "Canadian.-farmer and. buy  his wheat or his cattle on credit.  The farmer -and all other .producers  might be ever so willing to .give then-  country credit but they could not do it  because they have to pay cash "for wages,  for rent, materials, etc. They must be paid  in cash, or its equivalent.  So Canada says to Great Britain:���������"I  will lend you the money so that you can  pay cash to Canada's producers for what  you want.  "I will borrow this money from our  own people just as you borrow money from  your people.  "I will also borrow from the. people of  Canada money to pay cash for-all. the products that Canada, as well as Great Britain,  .needs in Canada."  That is Canada's practical, -patriotic  part in helping, to win.the .war.  Without 'this credit the Canadian pro^  ducer could not sell to Great Britain, and  without these. Canadian .products the war  would be prolonged.  So it is necessary for- Canada to give  to Great Britain the credit in order that  Canada's'own producers, who need a market,  will have one,; and in order that Great  Britain which needs the products to win ���������the  war, will get them.  *  ���������  *  Now hovv does Canada .get the money  by which both Canada and Britain can pay  cash-for Canada's products?  -By borrowing it from the people of  Canada through .the sale of -Canada's  Victory Bonds to >be -.offered.'in November.  That is why Canada's-Victory-Bonds  are-offered to the people���������to raise money  to help to .finish the war.

Proportional representation is a system of  election of representatives in legislative bodies  which, without making it compulsory on the  voter to name one candidate,, permits him to  insert a second name under the -first,-a third  under the second, and so on, at his discretion.  A vote is to ibe given to the candidate,"placed'  second oh the.paper if the first has -not enough  votes without it. If 658,000 :p:eople voted, and  there were 658 members, 1,000 wauld-be-enough  for each member; and if any candidate had  more than 1,000, the excess beyond that .number would be transferred to the successive candidates named in the.voting papers. The voting is general not local. Every elector may  vote for whom he pleases in any constituency.  The method enables the.elector to,p.utlhis vote  ���������in.'writing, and makes it possible that .the vote  although without effect in 'his own constituency, may in some other place, aid in the.el-  ection of. the candidate .for whom at is given.  This system has. been employed in Switzerland and parts of the British.Empirei ;It/has  been proposed in several states of the United  States, but it has failed of popular support. $1  TTT71 ABBOTSFORD  POST.

Finest quality.  Abbotsford  A . TOMfflll  Exemption Boards have been chosen in such a way as to make them absolutely independent and  removed from all influence. There are over 1,250 boards throughout the country, each composed of two  men, one appointed by the county judge in the district concerned and one selected by a joint committee of  Parliament. Being familiar with local conditions where they sit, the members are well-fitted to appreciate  ������uch reasons for exemption as are put before them by men called up.  Exemption will be granted to those who can establish that itisinthe national interest that they remain  in civilian life.   This is for the Exemption Board to decide after having received full information in each case.  The grounds on which exemption may be claimed (which are similar to the grounds recognized in  Great Britain and the United States) are as follows:���������  (a)   That it is expedient in the natknnl interest that the man ������hould, instead of being employed in Military Service, bo  engaged in other work in which, he ic habitually engaged.  (6)   That it is expedient in *he natio'itl in'erest. that the mnn should, instead of being employed in Military Service, be  engaged in other v/ork in wlti-li he wishes to be engaged and for which he has speci:.l qualifications.  (������) That it is expedient in the national interest th.it, instead of beiiia employed in Military Service, he should continue  to be educated or trained for any worlc for which he is then bcintf educated and trained.  Id) That serious hardship would ensue if (he man wero placed on active service, owing to his exceptional financial or  business obligations or domestic position.  (���������)   111 health or infirmity.  (/) That he conscientiously objects! to the undertaking of combatant service and is prohibited from doinff so by tenets  ���������nd articles of faith, in effect on Ihe sixth day of July, 1017, of any organized religious denomination existing and  well recognized in Canada at such date, and to which he in good faith belongs.  07)   That he should be exempt because disfranchised under the War Time Election Act.  No Claim for Exemption should be put forward unless one or other of these grounds in fact exists,  and no loyal citizen should assist in, or allow himself to be made a party to, any Claim for Exemption unless  thoroughly satisfied that it is made in good faith.  Exemption may be applied for by the men selected themselves or by their parents, near relatives or  employers. Application for exemption must be made on printed forms to be found at every post office,  which are to be filled in and left with the postmaster if exemption is desired. The postmaster will forward  the form to a Registrar, who will send it to the appropriate Exemption Board. In due time, then, the  Applicant will get notice as to when he must present his case before the Board.
