Simple
Vancouver 8oard of Trade F.nd Americans  Are Taking  Advantage  of
Canadian  Halibut Fisheries.
Vancouver, Dec. 24.���Thi fisheries
committee of the board of trade is preparing a strong memorial asking the
Dominion government to define the
sovereign rights of Canada in the
North Pacific owing to the alleged
poaching of American halibut-fishing
boats in Canadian waters. It expresses the opinion that the waters between Queen Charlotte islands and the
mainland, ranging from Dixon entrance in the north to Hecate Strait are
wholly within the jurisdiction of the
Dominion. If this view is taken by
the Ottawa gov.-rnment and recognized by tho United States government
.\nierican rushing boats will be driven
out of the industry, and Vancouver
a-ind Princo Rupert will become great
fishing ports.

of their recommendations respecting
the operation of the fisheries along
the thousands of miles of border line
between the two countries and each
official found that his report In many
important phases was widely al variance with thai of th. other. Under

been realized that a conference at this

"PEACE ON  EARTH.
GOODWILL TOWARD MEN."
The joy of Christmas morn should
dispel th-- shadows of earth. As the
day with its fullest meaning takes
possession of our being we should
breathe the very air ��� of goodfellow-
ship. This does not mean that w*;
should seek to control the life and action of another, and make him conform to what we conceive to be correct. Our conception may be narrow
and while we crave the liberty which
the event of the Unit Christmas morn
was supposed to ...ring us, we may
deny to others the very liberty wo demand ourselves. Our aim ln extending
goodwill to onr fellows should be a
glad appreciation of the pleasure they
enjoy, and whether in the child or
the grown up we should realize that
their choice cannot be made to conform  to ours.
In our giving at this season, there
Bhould be an utter absence of tiie
patronizing air. Our gifts should go
out with a right royal gladness to
ma],., the recipient happy, or thiey
.should never pass from us. Our gifts
should not be made as a matter of
duty, because they cease then to be
gifts and only take the payment of a
just debt.
In our greetings today do not let
us forget the aged. The remembrance
of them will bring back fond memories
of long ago, memories of childhood's
days, .and for a time their hearts will
feel young again as the scones of
early day* cross the mind's vision.
Do not forg.-t the sick and the ceaseless watchers caring for them. Do not
forget the poor mortals who have erred, not .because they were not blest
with home envlronmi nt such as we
hav- had. If only for the selfish rea-
son of the good aame of the city, allow no ont' to want today.
Above all as the sun goes down and
'ii. shadows deepen tonight let there
be in the heart of every citizen the
assurance of having made some one
els. happy. Peace on Earth, Cood-
-.\ii: Toward   Men.

Money Orders
Money Orders of the Canadian Bankers' Association are safer
than any other method of transmitting money; more convenient
to obtain or negotiate, and as cheap as any other method and
usually cheaper. They are payable wherever there is a branch
of any chartered bank in the Dominion of Canada; and can also
be used to advantage  in the United States and  Europe.

The latest in society functions is a

something thai she could not find any

held in the interior, we learn, would
b.i\������ been a great success but for an

The fdiii.;- bacteriologist, Pro
.feasor Robert Koch, who last n-iring
went to Africa to study the Bomno-
Lency disease, has established that
t!i" plague, raging principally in
British Uganda, on the northern
shore of thc Victoria Xvanza, carried away more than 200,000 people. Not only the natives, as first
a*-v*inied, hut also Europeans fnl!
victims to thc disease. The ^crn*
of thc disease is transmitted by a
���tinging fly. Prevention of the disease is, according to Dr. Koch, onl)
possible through extermination of
tho flics.
Our Cotton.
Only 44 per cent of thc southern
farms now derive their principal income from cfTt*ton, Still cotton pro-
diH't.ion has steadily increased from
7,000,000 bales, worth $300,000,000,
twentv years ago, to 13,000,000
bales last year, worth $628,000,000,
Tho home grown cotton demand of
Ihfl mills of the United States is
qow about 4,000,000 bales a 3 en r.
Thc census of 1000 shows that in
twenty years the improved acreage
of twelve southern states increased
from 78,082,484 acres to 107.573,*

Trading   In   tha   Days   Before   M>nay
Was In Circulation.
Assyria, with her Immense hosts and
her spacious and magnificent cities,
bad no money; Egypt-opulent, popu-
lens and abundant Egypt���had no money; ancient Persia, before the age of
tbe first Darius, had no money; the
early Hebrews, and even during tbe
���most prosperous period of the age of
Solomon and down to the time of Jn
4fl& Moeeabaeus, were without money:
Etmrla from first to last was without
money; Rome was without money to
lhe time of Servlus Tulllus, and the
Greeks of the heroic ages were equally
destitute of money. Among all those
nations pold and silver, when used iu
barter, were weighed out by the scales,
sr when Abraham purchased the cav#
of Macpelah "be weighed to Ephron
the sliver which he had named in the
andlence of the sons of Heth."
Anciently there was no me__*y In
Arabia, or the riches of the patriarch
Job would not have been estimated
by bis eamels, oxen and she asses.
India, Persia. Assyria, Judaea, Egypt,
Greece. Ktruria, Rome, the nations of
Asia Minor, including Tyre and its dependencies, all arrived at civilization
snd comfort without the current uso
of cash and carried on their extensive
mercantile and manufacturing transactions merely by bartering commodities
in kind, bullion being reckoned among
those commodities. These nations were
populous almost beyond credibility and
transported their produce, manufactures and other merchandise In ships
of Tyre and Tarshlsh from Ophlr and
the utmost Indian Isle (Ceylon) to Gaul
ami the "tin Islands" of Scllly or Vigo,

The Unattached Woman.
Nowhere else in the world ie the
wrmun who has chosen the single
life bo thoroughly her own mistress,
so wholly the arbiter of her own
destiny, so completely at liberty to
crrate the atmosphere that shall
make for her happiness as in New
"^ ork. In Paris slip is declasse���an
object of social suspicion, because
fhe has not openly annexed a bread
winner. In London Bhe becomes the
mother by proxv of her sister's children or some distant relative's children. Jn the lesser cities of the
Vniied States, a writer in T^oman
believes, some of the old prejudice
remains against tbe woman who has
missed or declined matrimony. She
is to a degree the superfluous woman and as snch ie tolerated or pitied,
but never approved. ��� New York
