A Prosperous Religious Body.
Ono of the most vigorous and rap
idly growing religious bodies in
America is the "Christian Church,"
or Disciples of Christ. In about one
hundred years this communion has
come to number a rrjillion and a
quarter in this country alone, and
there are tens of thousands in other
lands like England, Scotland, Scan
dinavia. Australia, Japan, China, In
dia Philippine Islands and Africa.
The United States census reports
show that this people ranks among
the first in percentage of growth.
They have a large number of colleg
es, and these institutions are grow
ing andprosperous. Their ministry
numbers'no less than six thousand,
and some of the ablest preachers in
America are to be found in their
This religious body has placed be
fore itself a great task. Its stand
ards are high. The seek to restore
the New Testament church in unity
and ordinances, and teaching, and
life and spirit. They have made a
valuable contribution to the grow
ing sentiment for Christian union,
which is rapidly spreading every
where. They stand for civic ideals
and place important emphasis upon
leal remperance reform. The late
Rev. Sam P. Jones, the well-known
evangelist, said he never saw a peo
ple that did not ring clear on the
temperance question. Their mem
bership includes a number of men in
public life like Speaker Champ Clark,
of Missouri; United States Senator
Oliver, of Pennsylvania, and other?.
It will Jbe remembered that Presi
dent , Garfield was a leading and
active member in this body.
The Disciples of Christ are a strong
and an aggressive missionary body,
both home and foreign. Their
strongest organization is probably
the Foreign Christian Missionary So
ciety, with headquarters in Cincin
nati. This Society conducts missions
in foreign lands, Japan, China, India,
Africa, etc. The membership in the
foreign fields has about doubled in
the past decade. The Society sup
p)rts99 schools and colleges inth
foreign fields, with 5,400 students.
And, besides, it sustains 25 hospitals
and as many medical missionaries,
last year 157,000 patients were treat
el. The income of this organization
last year was over $409,000, and the
amount aimed at this year is $500,
000. The first Sunday in Match is
the day appointed for all the Chris
tian churches to contribute to this
world-wide enterprise. Every
church is invited to give. No doubt
the churches in this community will
contribute with their characteristic
liberality. The rally of all these
churches the first Sunday in March
is an important event among the
Di-ciples. A large number of new
missionaries will probably be sent
out to the fields this year.
The next International Convention
will be held in Toronto, Ontario, Oc
tober, 1913. A lurge attendance is
expected. The last convention was
held in Louisville. Kv.. Octobor,

Wft8hlngton.-I?l8h, kolng one of
tho most Important .foods, 1ms been
tho subject of consideration since tho
achiovomcnt of our national Independ
ence. But whtlo several states had
flgh commissions, and tho American
Fl8k Culturo association, now the
American Fisheries society, was in ex
istonco prior to 1871, no branch of
tho government was charged 'with this
quostlon until that year, Dut mat
tors of Importance arising of both a
foreign and domestic nature, congross
was Influenced to pass an act creating
tho ofllco of commissioner of fish
and fisheries In 1871, its duties being
to prosecuto "Investigations and In
quiries on the subject, with a view of
ascertaining whothor any and what
diminution In tho number of food flsh
of tho coast and tho lakes of tho Unit
ed States had taken placo; and
if so, to what causes tho samo
is due; and also whether any and
what potectivo, prohibitory or precau
tionary measures should bo adopted
in tho premises."
Although nothing was attached to
tho position of commissioner of flsh
and fisheries but "honor and glory,"
a man, regarded as pro-emln'ently qual
ified fof the now position was found,
and Spencer Fullerton- Balrd, then as
sistant secretary of tho Smithsonian
Institution, was given, tho appoint
ment Commissioner Dalrd enterod
upon his duties at once, and continued
as tho head of tho commission until
his death in 1877. Succeeding him
came Dr. George Brown GoodO, emi
nent ns an ichthyologist and fishery
expert, who had been . Prof. Balrd's
assistant After less than a year's
tlmo, however, Dr. Goodo voluntarily
gnvo up tho commlssionership to de
vote his entire time to the National
museum, of which he was director.
Next came Commissioner Marshall
McDonald, practical fish culturlst and
inventor of important mechanical ap
pliances now used in the hatching of
fish all over the world, who, like Com
missioner Baird, served until his death,
in 1895. Commissioner McDonald was
tho first salaried head of tho commis
sion. Following him camo Capt. John
J.' Brlco, a retired naval officer, who
held the office for two years, and was
succeeded in 1898 by Georgo Meado
Bowers, the present commissioner.
Until 1903 the bureau was known
as the "United States commission of
fish and fisheries," and was an inde
pendent institution of the government?,
responsible directly to congress. In
that year It was included in the new
department of commerco and labor,
becoming the United Statps;:bureau of
From tho outset tho work of the
bureau naturally fell under tho threo
general heads of scientific investiga
tion, fishery inquiry and flsh culture.
This samo classification, extended and
perfected, enters into tho organiza
tion at the present tlmo. Approxi
mately 350 persons form the present
personnel of tho bureau, of whom all
but about 90 aro at outside stations,
laboratories or on vessels. Tho land
owned and occupied by tho bureau at
its flsh cultural and biological sta
tions covers an aggregate area of 12,.
000 acres, with a value of $240,000. Im
provements and equipments at theso
stations represent more than $1,000,
000, while other property of the bu
reau Includes four seagoing steam and
sail vessels, 20 steam launches and 150
small sail, power and row boats, which,
with equipment, aro valued at about
$300,000. Six flsh transportation cars
aro worth $45,000. Tho aggregate In
vestment of the national government
in property devoted to tho fishery serv
ice, is thus about $1,585,000. And

bureau artificial propagation of fishes

aftor its establishment Tho fishes
to which attention was first given
woro tho shad, Atlantic salmon and
whltoflsh. Tho work proved so popu
lar that It was extonded annually, and
soon overshadowed all other branches.
Tho policy followed by the buroau, as
enunciated by Dr. Goodo, has been
that it is bettor to expend a small
amount of public money in making
fish so abundant that thoy can be
caught without restriction and servo
as cheap food for the people at large
than to expend a much larger sum in
proventlng tho people from catching

The reason why the Hudson Bay
project k advocated vso warmly is
that the bay itself, described by
some as "the Mediterranean, of the
North," is tho third largest "sea"
in the world and gives access to a
region that promises to rival in the
future the group of Northwestern
States of the American Union. The
arc a of the Mediterranean is 977,000
square miles; of the Baltic 680,000;
of Hudson Bay 355,000. Its length
is 800 miles and breath 500, and,
compared with the Great Lakes, it
is a vertiable ocean, for Lake Su
perior's area is only 31,000 square
miles; Lake Huron's but 23,000;
Lake Michigan's a scant 22,500; Lake
Erie's merely 9,960; arid Lake Ont
ario's barely 7,240. The outlet of
Hudson Bay to the Atlantic is Hud
son Strait, nearly 500 miles long,
with an average bereath of 100
miles, its narrowest width being 60
miles, so that this whole marine
waste is a great land-locked sea,
susceptible of development into a
magnificent commercial waterway.
The far-stretching expanse of conti
nent which- drains into it, formerly
known as Rupert's Land, after
Prince Rupert, the famous cavalry
general and' first governor of the
Hudson Bay Company, has become
the seat of what may far outstrip
the empires old and become the
homes of peaceful and prosperous
millions. From "The Hudson Bay
