DOUKHOBORS DENY  VISIDNOFSECT  Petition "Parliament Contrail  ������������������ dieting Alleged Statement  ' of Peter.Veregin  Ottawa,   Oct.   25.���������The   prospect  opened.for-Canada^bv- the  military  service act-is one  of  prosperity in  sured and safeguarded.    The object  of the act is to reinforoe our men  at  the-front wbile~keeping  in   Canada  those   whose presence  here  is  "re  quired in order fhat necessary   business may be carried on   as   well as  those whosegoinjgoverseas would lay  a heavy   burden   on   the   country  through tbe^eeds of dependents.  No heavy tax on the manpower  of the country will be made. The act  calls for but 100,000 men, and authorities estimate that there are in  the country 400,000 of thefirs| class  alone, unmarried men and widowers  without children between the ages  of 20 and 34, This class may well  supply most of those needed.  Men in the first class called will  be withdrawn for military service  only as they are required by the  militory situation. The process will  be gradual, thus leaving a portion of  the men to follow their regular vo  cations until such a time as they are  required.   . ���������  The cost- of the war must be reduced to the minimum by the system which sends out of tbe country  only those who can best be spared,  from the standpoint of the nation as  a whole. General prosperity must  also be encouraged by the'safeguard-  ing of essential industries and the  retention at their work of men whom  the highest interests of the country  require at home.   '  MINISTER OF-MINES  ARRIVES IN CITY  Hon Martin Burrell, minister of  mines in the union government and  member for Yale-Cariboo, arrived in  the city today from Ottawa. According to the Ottawa dispatches during  the past week, Mr. Burrell has been  sworn in for so many portfolios in the  union government that we have  In   a   letter which  has been forwarded to C. J_. Doherty; minister of  justice at Ottawa,  the   Doukhobors  of  tbe   district   near   Tbrums- and  Tarrys petition  parliament   against  the recent statements alleged to have  been   made, by   Peter Veregin, in  which it is said thafhe claims there  are tvyo sects of   Doukhobors.    Apparently the point  of   the   petition  to  the   minister  of  justice  is that  there are not, according  to the   interpretation of tbe  local   party, two  sects, but one sect partially divided  into   three   pa'rties���������one under the  leadership oi Peter Veregin,a second  who reeeive their livelihood by honest toil, and a third who .are   in  the  following petition   termed "radical"  and   who  are  known  as "Svobod-  niki."  The petition as sent to the minister justice follows:  :We, tbe   undersigned   Doukho  e  hors, are informing you of th'-i false  statement of Peter Veregin which  has just appeared in the Canadian  press. Peter Veregin, in his peti  tion to yon, says there are two sects  of Doukhobors, and we do not wonder that what he says is not true,  for you can just expect that from  him.  .  "He, with bis con plaining  tone,  tries   to   bribe   the government of  Canada to perpetrate a great crime  to   Doukhobors; that is, to violate  its promise   given  to .^Doukhobors  that they shall'never be conscripted.  When Doukobors came   to  Canada  the government gave   them a  written promise that they should never  be conscripted, even if they  became  British subjects; that is, if they   accepted   homesteads   given    by  the  government.  "Peter   Veregin   says that there  are two sects of Doukhobors.    This  is not true. There is only one sect,  but   there -are   three parties.    One  party Jives in.the compahy of which  Peter   Veregiu   is   president-    The  second party.lives on the farms and  cultivates   the   land   and  earns its  living by honest labor.   This  is not  against    the   Doukhobor   rpligiou.  The third and most radical party is'  the 'Svoboduiui.'    Their principles  are   not  to   kill or ill-use, not only  people but also animals, and not  to  eat   any   meat   or   to wear leather  boots.  "Once as Peter Veregin   was   riding   in   a  carriage   persons of this  party stopped him, and accused him  of being harsh to the animals. Upon  I this Peter Veregin commanded his  Veregin wears the boots made from  the skin of the animals. But not less  percentage of his  company secretly  eat meat and smoke  and  chew  to  baoco. ���������   '  "It-would be better if Peter Veregin smoked and chewed tobacco  than to say anything untrue.  .  '  " 'Not that which  entereth   into'  the   mouth   defileth   the man; but  that which-procee'deth ' out  of  the  mouth   defileth   the man,'said the  Christ.  ^'Peter Veregin not long ago' sent  a; man from his company to tbe  other two parties to invite them to  come'into his company, but neither  went, so he began evil for them. It  is not advantageous to Peter Veregin  that there are .three parties of Doukhobors-and he knows that his  power is coming to an end: When  he.loses his power all Doukhobors  will live, together again, as they  lived before Peter Veregin rose to be  their leader.  "Peter Veregin calls himself a  Christian',' but beats the people himself and commands others to- do it.  He often sues people and ruins them  That is against the principles of the  teachings of Christ and the priori  pies of the Doukhobors  "We give you our honest word  that all said is the precise truth. It  is a shame for Peter Veregin, being  a millionaire, to send other people  to fight and-refusing to go himself.  We kindly request you bring this  petition before the parliament of  Canada.

The principal task.before the Canadian people today is to do every  thing in their power to make the Victory bond issue a success. This is an  instance where a man can show his  patriotism by investing his money and  make a good profit on his investment.  A man who visited Spokane the other  day says that every other man you  meet on the streets there attempts to  sell you a Liberty bond. If Canadians ...will pursue the same method in  disposing of the Victory bonds, there  will be no question regarding the' outcome of the issue.  In these days of lightning political  changes, he is a wise politician who  knows his own party.  The Doukhobors' petition to the  minister of justice is a queer document. If its publication serves no  other purpose, it will at be valuable as  an object lesson to Candians in showing them the class of people the men  in authority in Russia ha������e "to deal  with. '        >...._���������'  The bureau of fisheries is urging  the use of whale and porpoise meat as  human food. It tries to overcome  popular prejudices by showing that  whales and porpoises are mammals  like cattle and sheep; that their flesh  is therefore "meat," that is devoid of  all fishy taste, and that it is palatable  and wholesome, whether fresh, corned  or canned. Experiments at Pacific  coast eities show that whale meat  finds purchsers. Perhaps "Please pass  the whale" may yet become a familiar  table request.  Wh'ile no definite date has yet been  set for the federal elections.^ is eerier-  ally believed that it will be somewhere  around December 17. This will give  defeated candidates ample time to recover for their Christmas dinner.  It is too early in the campaign for  a man to stake bis reputation as a  prophet by predicting a victory for  either party in the coming election  The issues have not yet been sufficiently clearly defined.  During the next six weeks a great  many political meetings will be held  under the name of patriotic gatherings.  If Laurier comes out' of Quebec  with fifty-five or sixty seats, the balance of tho country, in order to give  Borden a victory, will have to go  pretty solidly for the union government.  A pretty good story comes from  Eholt. A Grand Forks man in a  little Ford knocked a man down  with his car and ran one wheel over  one of his shoulder before he could  stop. Then, horrified at what be  had done, he backed the car up and  ran over it again. The victim took  the incident as a good joke. If a  thing is worth doing at all, it is  worth doing well.  Political Situation  The politicians irrespective of  former party affiliations are beginning to figure bow the new arrangement between Borden and his handful of Liberal associates will work  out. In the opinion of many it  looked at first as if the ground bad  been completely cut from under  Laurier's feet, but now there appears to be an inclination to revise!  that opiuion.   It is  admitted that'  Sir Wilfrid Laurier "will  practically  make a clean sweep'of ��������� Quebec, and  that gives ,the~Liberal  party' aJ substantial start in tbe race/   Now, .tbe  Liberals in the other provinces; are  willing to boost  the union   govern  ment,  providing  the  Conservatives  will agree to an arrangement  whereby alternate seats will- be" allotted to  Liberals- and   Conservatives,. share  and share alike. This, they, suggest,  would eliminate all   the recriminations of an eleclionon   party   lines.  Indeed, it would do more, if carried  out in every province in the. Domin  ion with the exception of Quebec,  it would ,, give .the Liberals a' ma  jbrity of fifty-five to sixty in the  next parliament. Another phase that  might be taken into consideration at  ,the present time is the high-percentage of men applying for ex  emption under the military service  act. It looks as if exemption applications would amount to 80 per  cent of the 300,000 or more men  who will . pass the medical boards.  How many of those who are applying for exemptions'will vote for tbe  union government? That question is  an interesting one and, in the words  ;of the scientific lecturer, opens' up a  new line of thought.���������Ladysrhit'h  Chronicle.   ���������    ,."'      "-  "   ''?  Punishment, to Fit the Case  During the recent maneuvers,  says tbe Bristol Times', a captain  called one of his sergeants one day  and said, "Sergeant, note down Private Bates, one day on * bread and  water for slovenly turnout on pn-  rade."  -"Beg pardon, captain,".responded  the sergeant,'.'but that won't make  any   difference   to. Bates. , He's' a  vegetarian." ,'  -"Then," said   the,'captain, "give.  him one day on meat and soup."  ���������j   .  , . #���������:���������  She Finally Got Attention  Little Lydia had been given a  ring as a Christmas present, but,  mucb to her disappointment, no one  of the guests at tbe Christmas din-  nerhad' noticed it.' Finally, unable  to withstand their obtuseness or indifference, she exclaimed:  "O dear, I'm so warm in my new  ring!"  I  J  1-  <  r  JJP 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 f or jour Allies that 'she  must buy on credit from Canada, arid 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 her  trade, are quite as willing to give her credit  as we are in Canada.  Canada wants to help Great Britain  not only because Canada wants Britain's  trade but because we are Canada and she is  Great Britain���������both members of the same  great Umpire, 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. Also it is in Canada's self-interest  to supply those needs and thus keep open  a market for our products.  v ��������� * *  Now, Britain needs our wheat, our  cheese, cattle, hogs, and many manufactured articles.  Canada also needs many of these things  ���������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 to 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 their  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 producer could not fell to Great Britain, and  without these'Canadian products the war  would be prolonged.  So it is necessary for Canada to give  to Qreat 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 how 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.  "Canada must keep her shoulder to the  wheel even though it be a chariot of fire,"  and the way for Canada to keep her  shoulder to the wheel is by buying  Vara  Canada's Victory Bonds  Next week this space will tell why Canada raises money  by selling Canada's Victory Bonds  Iwued by Canada's Victory Ifiaa Committee  in co-operation with the Minister of Finance  of the Dominion of Canada.  ,*���������������  &>  r  5  ���������i  IV  "8  i-  I  Jt  j  ��������� I ������  61  ���������a  tarn, THE   SUN,.

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 toappreciate  such reasons for exemption as are put before them by men called up.  Exemption will be granted to those who can establish that it is in the 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 Bimilar to the grounds recognized in  Great Britain and the United States) are as follows:���������  (������)   That it is expedient in the national interest that the man should, instead of being employed in Military Service.be  engaged in other work in which he is habitually engaged.  (6) That it is expedient ini������he national interest that the man should, instead of being employed fn Military Service, be  engaged in other work in which he wishes to be engaged and for which he has special qualifications.  (������) That it is expedient in the national interest that, instead of being employed in Military Service, he should continue  to be educated or trained for any work for which he is then being educated and trained.  (d) That serious hardship would ensue if the man were placed on active service, owing to his exceptional financial or  business obligations or domestic position.  (������)" III health or infirmity.  (f) That he conscientiously objects to the undertaking of combatant service and is prohibited from doing to by tenets  and articles of faith, in effect on the sixth day of July, 1017, of any o'rennized religious denomination existing and  well recognized in Canada at such date, and to which he in good faith belongs.  fa)   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.
