In  other words,   the  United  States government, so  far as  Canada is concerned,     is in the same  position as that occupied  by the man  who   makes counterfeit  dollars    wilh  good   silver and then 'exchanges them  for merchandise���������for every fifty cents'  worth of silver he  puts lUito his dollars  he would   be  able ��������� to got a dollar's  worth  of merchandise  in       exchange.

She has put into print what  without    doubt  the   majority of her  sex think of boxing contests as they  are carried    out at the present, time.  Gwen's  article is as follows:  Which is lhc-. worst; cruelty to animals, or cruelty to human beings?  Oneday we read of a local teamster  kicking his horses almost to death;  and we feel that nothing short of  ''as'good as he gave" in the form of  a sound thrashing,', would serve to  make this 'brute: of a man treat his  poor dumb animahj with  humanity.  Thc iic.\t day We read of one man  dclilK'rat&h' killing another man in  cold-blooded .premeditated fashion in  the prize ring���������anu ,somc' people call  this sport���������this hideous, fiendish, bru  taL butchery, as real *ml wilful a  murder as ever committed:' Talk of  bull hgl.#, a prize fight is'-a-fight'o-f  two brutes applauded bv hundreds of  other brutes, and termed-sport in a  Christian country! '    -  Will Neil be tried and habgc-d as a  murderer, and will: Tenny's seconds^  ���������Ik* arrested' as accessories to the  crime? Most likely not..���������' And next  year we will hear of;Neil milling- or  maiming another .victim to the thunderous applause of a delighted audience.

And yet these are men in Vancouver thait uphold such 'godless sports  But the won.cn, thank God T have  yet to find the .woman whose very  soul does not shrink at t'he mere  thought of the battered limbs, bruised flesh and bleeding bodies of'the.
