Mrst Primer���������Una  Hutton,   Her  bert Dompier, Jessie  Ross,   Clarence  Fowler,    Edmund   Eureby,    Gordon  Victoria, Nov. 8.���������Owing to the  large number of requests of a per  sonal nature for the return to Canada of soldiers serving overseas in  the C.E F., received by tbe military  authurities, the following informa  ation is published in order to ex  plain the methods, which in the in  terests of fair and equitable treatment^ all soldiers, are followed in  each case:  1. In the homes of- soldiers who"  are absent, there occur what might  be termed tbe inevitable tragedies of  life, in the serious or fatal illness of  members of their families. In these  circumstances the-quite natural de  sire arises on the part of the re'la '  tives to have the soldiers return  home, and numerous requests are  made to this effect. Such cases form  the major portion of those coming  under this heading.  2. While these cases are very dis  tressing, they are, unfortunately, the  unavoidable incidents of war, and it  is obviously impossible, where so  many thousands of men are concerned, to accede to any of these requests except in cases of the most  extreme urgency.  3. Further, owing to the critical  stage which.the.wa.r.has now reached and under present conditions, it  has been foun*d impossible to grant  furlough to a soldier to return to  Canada for tbe reason only that one  of his, relatives is seriously ill or has  died. Only in extreme urgent cases'  can     applications   be     considered  where, for inatance, business complications' in connection with an eseate  or the arrangemants for' the care  and maintenance of the remaining  members of a family require a  soldier's personal attention.  4. In such cases application  should be submitted toNthe"assistant  adjutant- general, military district  No. XI, Victoria, B.C., who. will  cause the same to be investigated  and forwarded with the recommen-  ations of the general officer commanding, district, to militia headquarters at Ottawtf. The application should be accompanied in each  instance by definite information and  satisfactory evidence of'"the facts  stated, endorsed by one or more  responsible persons,- besides the  relatives,' who can vouch for the  facts.     / ...      "  5. The fact ot a'"soldier-being  wounded or sick in hospital in  either England or France, is not a  sufficient reason for-making a request for his return to Canada. The  -man in every case is   receiving   the  best and" most efficient medical attention and nursing, and not until  he is fully recovered and rested will  he be^i-eturned to duty.' On the  other hand, should his case be such  as to permanently incapacitate him*  from active service, be will, in the  ordinary way, be returned to Canada at the earliest possible nioment  for disposal.  6. Relatives and friends .of' men  at the front are therefore requested  to carefully consider each individual  case in view of these requirements,  and only to submit applications in  urgent cases of absolute necessity,  such as above outlined.  coop��������� - -  in petrograd  Maximalists Take Possession  of the Russian Capital.

SIR WILFRID LAURIER  ISSUES MANIFESTO  Sir Wilfrid Laurier this week  issued hi3 manifesto. Ir^a document  addressed to theXanadian people,  the opposition leader declares hie  policy .and outlines his aims. On  the all-important question of participation in the war, Sir Wilfrid  says that '.'a fundamental objection  to the government's policy of conscription is that it ennscripts human  life only and that it does not attempt to^conscript wealth, resources  or the services of any persons other  than those who come within the age  limit prescribed by the military  service act." The first duty of a  Laurier administration would be "to  find the men, money and resources  necessary to ensure the fullest measure of support to our heroic soldiers  at the front and to enable Canad  to continue to .the very end to do  her part to win the war."  37  31  40  41  32  32  Inches  The $3,000,000,000 Liberty loan  in the United States was over-subscribed by 54 per cent, over four  and one-half billion dollars having  been pledged. ���������  Information that a shell fired   by  an American naval gunner  sank   a  llaiufaii !.>'  0.46 German submarine in the   Mediter-    ranean is contained in   a report that  British forces still push on toward   has been made   to   the Washington  I-Iobbin, Euphemia   McCallum,   AV������M Jerusalem.

With the  exception of a few boxes from  Streetsville, Ont., all the apples of  the T..Eaton Co."are from British  Columbia. They have none from  Nova Scotia.

Tfiey annually  use far more than 100 boxes in  Muirhead's cafeteria, but that special order .was. for the purposes of  window dressing.

BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY, LTD.  Voluntary    System���������*-. .Gave  , Place to  Conscription   .  Under Lincoln  ��������� It is a matter of record in 'United  . States history that President - Lin*.  x- c "In, after attempting to prosecute,  toe civil war_wilh volunteer troops,  at last,.iti 1S63, turned to conscrip  tionsin order to secure the necessary  forces.  Since Lincoln is regarded as one  of the greatest statesmen this con  tinent has produced, it-is instructive  at the present stage of Canadian  history to see how he dealt with  the problems that arose  The president was warned that  grave disordeis might follow the  enforcement of the conscription law,  which it was argued, was in opposi-  ti >n to the constitutional privileges  and liberties of the citizen.  Lincoln took the ground that  democracy means an equal share in  tbe burdens as well as in the blessings of a republic, and decided on  the firm enforcement of the law. All  opposition was firmly repressed.  On entering the  present  war, the  United States profited by   past   ex  perience and promptly adopted compulsory service.  Now that Canada has adopted a  similar course, she is in-a better po  sition to do her full share, and  . though opposition is unlooked for,  repressive measures are provided in  the act.

CORRUPTION  Ottawa, Nov. 8.���������In setting up  the machinery for the operation of  the military service act, special care  has been taken to select only offi  cials of the most trustworthy character. -In the operation of'the act,  attempts at bribery are always possible in Canada no less than in  other countries.  Attempt to bribe any member of  an exemption tribunals or medical  board, or a military 'representative,,  means a term of imprisonment of  riot less than one year and not more  than five years. It will be very difficult for anyone so inclined to set  aside the regulations of the military  service act by corruption. v"  Not "all of the preparations made  to guard against venality and unfairness in the,operation of the act.  can he made public, but it may be  announced that attempts to bribe  officials in view of the checks*-* and  supervisions to-be imposed, will be  an exceedingly hazardous .business.

There has just been  issued a map' of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaehes since the Canadian forces  first landed in -France. It has been  matte especially for the great Canadian weekly, the' Family Herald and'  Weekly Star of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to Candian enterprise.  It. is a marvel of detail and yet not  crowded. ' It is in four colors and  about 2|[-x3J"feet and folded into a  very neat cover, about 5x10 inches.  The map is surrounded by *a .border of  the regimental badges and coat of  arms of. nearly every battalion that  left Canada, from Halifax to -Vancouver. . Every'important point can  be recognized at once. That portion  of the map covering France is in a  soft color with names of towns and  battle scenes in black, easily recognizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will use,-at less than two dollars a  'copy, yet it can be had absolutely,  free with The Family Herald.  The publishers, of .The Family Herald and Weekly Star for several  months back hare been fighting hard  against the .necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventually had to come to iflike most' other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate $1.25���������and  with the-year'ssubscription'they will  include a copy of this great war map  free'of charge. Thi3 is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will 'appreciate. Many expected a  much larger increase in the subscription price of The Family Herald\ and  are surprised at the small extra  amount charged.-" ,     <  The   enormous   circulation of The  Family   Herald   and    Weekly   Star  should he still greater when this offer '  becomes known.

You simply apply a few dropa of  freezone on a tender, aching corn and  soreness is instantly relieved. Shortly the entire corn can be lifted out,  root and all, without pain.
