WASHINGTON. Dec. 21. Tha National
Monetary commission today decided the
general outline of the fifteen districts
Into which the United State would be

In the sectional arrsngenient of, districts
It 1 declared apeclal consideration j was

banks. In order to gratify the popular
demand agalnat'any possibility of th,e
big.' Influential bank getting control ot
the propoaed National Keaerv associa
tion, thirty ot whose forty-five director
would be elected by the districts.
Under tha division agreed upon New
Kngland would constitute one district;
the eastern state, two; the aouth. four;
the middle weel, four, and the Pacific
coast state, four.
One-fifth of the banking power of the
nation la concentrated In New York, but
It I pointed OUt that all tha eastern
states will form only two districts. Th
I regarded a advantageous to the
mailer bank and out of proportion to
the Invested capital of the east. '

To those shoppers who have not already
finished their Christmas shopping for this year,
we want to say that shopping during the early
hours of the day has many advantages. There is
less crowding on both the street cars and in the
stores, and both you and the sales people are
not as tired as later in the day. And when
shopping in the afternoon, we urge you to
start for home before 5 o'clock, if possible,
making it possible for those compelled to re
main down town later to" find room in the cars.
