Sir WILFRID LAURIER:

I am seeking information as to who will be included under the word " clergy." There are certain religious denominations in which the word " clergy " is well understood. The Presbyterians and Methodists, I think, have regularly ordained clergy, and that is well understood. I do not know whether the Quakers have clergy or not, or any regularly ordained ministers. I do not know whether the Baptists have regularly ordained clergy, although they have clergy, and upon this point I should like some information.
