When   Doukhobor communities' established ,ji the  Northwest  the t <   newcomers were extended two .privileges;  not  accorded   to  other   immigrants.'  Instead of being .required to live   on  their respective homesteads  and  " do  so much work per year, these people  were     permitted to live in villa^es-  'and gradually  improve the lands   in  common.  The Doukbobors made homestead  cntres long ago, but cannot claim  p������tents for the land until they havtf  stood that they have not dene enough"  yet to entitle them  to patents.   But  another *   difllculty; arises.from * < the  fact that'the Doiilchobofs;-oh'the advice  of, their leader,   Peter. Vereginr  refuse to take out lia'turalizatioh papers, fearing-it would  make them lia-  hle to military service, .in which their  lcligious belief forbids" them  fa-take  part. "   The Minister. 6* tbe Interior  has made ,up- his mind  that the Dou-  ohobors have had favors enough already, so if they want  to become recognized  owners  of  the  lands      on  which  they_ are settled,  thpy     must'  become Canadian citizens.

'        . -     .   *  Local opinion generally ascribes  tbe,change to a combination of causes, The first is the rumor of a. mo-  ���������posed amalgamation of (he oompanys  interests in Kootenay.' That report,  it. is conceded, may have had an important effect.  But, apart from the possibility of  a change in the Company's relations,  which would, undoubtedly, lead ' to  an incicase of business for the 'Hall  Mines smelter, there are other reasons for a more favorable view cf  the ussets of the  Company. ,  The British Columbia Copper Corn-  Dan}'.
