THE CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTOR, mmimtttmttniniiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiuiiiiiiiiiiiitnn Mrs. Kauffman Is special cor respondent of The Vigilantes in Eng. land. Her skill as a newspaper wom an has recently been signally recog nized by the British government which has "borrowed" her from The Vigilantes for a period of some weeks In connection with publicity work for the Woman's Auxiliary Army Corps.) There is a new kind of martyr in England; the martyr that is painfully and conscientiously letting other peo ple die for him. In the military service w con scription act of December. 1015, Mr. Asqulth inserted a clause, exempting from service anyone that would prove "conscientious objections" to fighting This was done to protect such relig ious bodies as- the Quakers. While many of William Penn's disciples were enlisting not only to care for the sick and the wounded, but even for active service, "conscientious . objectors" from other quarters, as well as from the Quakers, suddenly sprang up like mushrooms. Tribunals were appointed to sift all claims of exemption. To their amaze ment, the flood of objectors came fortified with a mass of religious. moral and" ethical argument as to why they should not be In the fight- inr line lor tne protection oi tneir oeuntry.: i It was remarkable how many applicants, who were not Quak ers and who had been famous in their communities for high sense of duty, cultivated the tender plant of con science between August 1814 and De cember 1818. Tribunals varied in their treatment of such claims; mostly, like Gallio, they cared for none of these things and "drove them from the Judgment seat. Scarcely five per cent of the applicants made good their claims to total exemption." The alternative to military service for the conscien tious objectors is . work of national importance. An official return for the week ending July 14, 1817, shows ,461 conscientious objector not handed over to military service. Of these 1,282 are in prison. Conscientious objectors, one comes to believe, are born, not made. In many large centers, classes of instruc tion were formed at which the would- be delinquents were coached in pad-I conscientious objector.- A party of them was recently introduced into a village for labor purposes. The vil lage pelted them with ,sods, ducked some of them in the pond and finally chased the . lot . out. - .: Such scenes are . not Infrequent Wherever they are sent, people, will not work side by side with them in the same place or occupation. 'Their only satisfaction in a country that is seriously at war is the satisfaction that every person in the wrong huff to himself as his persecution. The London county council have had to remove from . their school conscien tious objectors who were exempted because their fellow teachers refused to work with them. It was confidently hoped by the majority of the English that under the new electoral reform bill the con scientious objector would be deprived of his parliamentary -vote, ' but the matter is still unsettled. ' - It must be remembered that the present British parliament is but a Vrump parlia ment," whose life has been unduly prolonged because many of its mem bers are absent on service. Why the prime minister should be so tender to ward the "conscientious objector" puzzles a good many of hi friends. Psrhaps he miscalculates the feeling of the men that will come home at the end of the war. If in the future tuis qiresttofi could' again be submitted to a parliament representative alike at th soldiers who have fought and the women (now enfranchised) ' who have lost their husbands and brothers. short work would be made of the con scientious objector's - franchise. In any case, the conscientious objector has earned an opprobrium among the bulk of British people that will last to the grave: and not infrequently sober-minded citizens say they would prefer business and social relationship with a burglar or a forger than with "conscientious objector." The Quaker conscientious objectors, when tried in tribunal, have generally lived up to their , rules of non-resist ance and at least acoepted medical aid service. Their non-resistance, in deed, seems to have .' been tampered with only in the case of certain wealthy exceptions, who are reputed belligerently to be financing the pact- SPECIAL THIS WEEK August 20th to 26th 1 MASON FRUIT JARS t quart, per doz. . . .66c Yl gallon, per doz. . . 88c Ask to see our $1,00 canning rack for use in an ordinary wash boiler.
