Mtwnin^,; Tdrcirijfo._^^j,^ MAY LEND are endangering their lives ~-on the battlefields, feel outraged when they find enemy aliens enjoying all the prosperity^ of the war and not making a single sacrifice. Premier Borden has declared that it is impossible to conscript alien labor. If it is, then all aliens who are subjects of Canada should be called up for military service and treated on the same basis as all other Canadians. The United States is calling its foreign born citizens to servic6 and-why not Canada? In another respect also the government ia subjected to warranted criticism. It is passing some valuable regulations that it is not effectively enforcing. The loafer's ordinance is one. There should be no loafihg permitted in Canada. Every man ought to be made to fight or work. The man who finds, fault, with union government is usually an individual, who nfever had any sympathy with the government and is only too eager to criticize it. The citizen, who realizes the great problems the government has to deal with, cannot but conclude if he is an impartial observer, that the government hifs done well since it was formed. Most of the faults that have been found with the government originate through ignorance of the purpose .of the government's action. When conditions are explained to a fair minded critic, the reason for tho criticism offered, Is in most instances, removed. The government needs to relieve the great restleasnea� ot the public about the Mennonites without delay. Explanations that there is no law to keep these people out of Canada and no law to make them accept military seivice, are not satisfying. If there are no ;>uch law.s, the people demand that such laws should be , passed. There is an almost unanimous opinion .tiiat no clap of people ^should be allowed to enter Canada, who are not prepared .^to "^accept Military Service, and bear 'all^UiB responsibilities of citizenship.
