This view, which has been held by many experts lor. some time, has been strengthened by the German retreat to the Hund-ing line, >yhlch in considered one of the most successful retreats of the war from the enemy viewpoint.

Of Supreme Necessity Every soldier's kit must contain certain things if he is to present that smart appearance �which is so necessary in our Aniiy. Of these probably the moot important is his razor - it must "stand-up" under all condilions - it must be ready at all time so that he can get a clean, velvety, comfortable sbavo in the shortest time. This it only possible with the AutoStrop Safety Razor because it is the only one that sharpens its own blades automatically. i Include an AutoStrop in your neit Overseas pacli-age.

MARK M. BRIMHALL, Proprietor J. A. SMITH, AuetionMrf Before the beginning of a meeting hold at Iteglna Hon. Mr. Calder had been handed a list of questions compiled by the Great War Veterans, the X.,oyai Orange Lodge and the Sous of England of Reglna. Tlieso were discussed by Mr. Calder and the questions and his answers wore as follows: fl) Why iias tho Govei'nmont conferred upon the Mennouite clergy the power to determine who ai'O entitled to tiie privileges of the Mennonlte Treaty of 187.'?, instead of requiring all Mennonites. otherwise subject to military service, to appear before properly constituted tribunals? Rep,!y. I do not know. I never knew it was done until I landed here and I will ask those in authority why it was done. I did not do it and do not know why it was done. 1 will have to raalfc enquiries. (2) What proof do you consider necessary to establish the validity of the claim of a Mennouite to secure the privileges of tho Treaty of 187^? Reply. This is not an easy question to decide. In my opinion there should be atneans provided to prove whether a man comes under the treaty of 1873. (3) What steps have been takei^by the Government to ensure that none but those entitled to the benefits of the Treaty of 1873 secure the same? Reply. I do not know. I am a busy man with my own work and have not spent many idle minutes. The Military Service Act does not come under my supervision, we have a department dealing with it. 1 am going to take this document back to Ottav/a, and if steps liave not been taken along this line it is about time tliey should be lakoii. (4) What steps are contemplated by the Government to remedy the present abuses ot the privileges extended to the Mennonites under the Treaties of 1S73 and 1898? Specific in.stances attached herewith. Reply. It will be one of my dudes to create a little stir when I get back to Ottawa. It steps have not been taken they should be taken. It is the duty of those in authority to see that the law is enforced. (5) In a recent interview, you stated that the responsibility of examining the probity of the "prima facie" evidence accH-pted in the instance of Mennonites, entitling them to exemption from military service, devolves upon the officials in charge of the administration of the Military Service Act, whereas ordinary applicants for exemption are required to fully establish tlieir respective claims to tlie satisfaction of the proper officials. AVhy is this preferential cousideratioti given the Mennonites? Reply. Conditions existed of which I knew nothing about. I have little to do with the Military Service Act and its operation. The matter will be gone into very fully again and if the card | system is working an injustice to anybody it will have to be righted. The law was never intended that any man should secure an exemption fradul-ently, and I will never countenance any plan whereby a man can claim exemption fraudulentl.v. I intend to tell the authorities what I think of it. It will be ray business to speak to the authorities plainly regarding the mat-tar. (C) What explanation do you offer as to the letter addressed by Mr. AV. D. Scott, Superintendent of Immigration, to the Mennonites in Kansas, U. S.A., copy of which is attached which it is claimed conveys an implied invitation and promise of immunity from military service? Reply. The letter only conveys information as to the slate ot our-law. There is nothing in it to indicate that any special privileges are accorded. If they come hero they will be subject to the provisions of our laws. Other people may read a different meaning into tho letter but I do not. 1 do not ntend to grant them any special privileges and a law should be enacted to the effect 'that no man should be allowed to come to this country unless he is prepared to carry his full share ot the military burden. (71 Why is the immigration per-mited at this time of thoso American Mennonites, who are not prepared to accept the full responsibilities of Can^ adian citizenship, in view ot the fact) that under Section 11, Ignited States Military Service Convention Regulations, such people may secure exemption from combatant service? Reply. This is not an easy matter for any government to say, for it is hard for any government to say who shall and who shall not come into the country. (8) Is the report correct that you have expressed the opinion that the Mennonites are p.nun.lly as dr-Tlrnble settlers as immlBrflnts from the United Kingdom? Reply. Mr. Calfler asked the audience whether they really wanted htm to reply to this question, as there were lots of rumors going around to which they should clo.ne their ears. The audience indicated by applause that there was no need for him to answer these questions and he passed it over. (9) Why are American Mennonites admitted to this country, who are not reasonably conversant with the English language? Reply. It is my firm belief that Canada should, be a British country. If we can hold the country and fill iLK RIVER MAN AlONGWOUNOE ......._____ _ _ _ ________ Ottawa, Oct. 1S.--Casualty lists i.s- nobody slmil come rmo'caiiiula who!

(11). What is your prvsona] iitti-tude toward the immigration into Ihia counti-y of the citlzons of enemy nations at the conclusion of the war? Reply. It will be uufortunmo if they come here. They will never i onie and they should not be permitted to come. (12). Are the press reports eorrcci that you are personally in favoi' of tlie revocation of the War Time Klecl.ion Act, as proposed by the l'l;raiiiian bishops and priests? Against Enemy Immigration Reply. These people itie nnl. the only ones who proposei] liie revoea-tioii of tlie War Tinie.s I'.'lect.iori act. That little rider had been put on tho end for political purpo-ne.'!. fn this matter the people of Canada had made one of the greatest mistuki's in their history. 'I'hn treatment of those people who came here fifteen or twenty years ago has been radically wrong and Canada wlil sucer'it for a long time to come.
