to the lack tf demand and the consequent low prices. The production of
cereals and of cotton is ill all eoun-
trl. s dependent on weather conditions, but the supply of gold is neither affected by climatic changes nor
by booms or depressions in industry.
So long as )?old can be produced there
is an ever ready market for il at one
standard price; and except for such
convulsions as the recuit war in the
Transvaal, or some great strike or
lockout in one or other of the gold-

circumstances to bring about a reduction  in  the annual output of gold.
On the side of demand, money Is
also aff.tcted by condition! that do not
apply to other commodities. It is far
more sensitive in its movements, and
whilst other movements are In the
main controlled by the condition of industry, they are also specially subject
to politiacl uncertainties.
Industry and  Money.
The effect of industry on the money-
market can be broadly divided into,
firstly, the demand for money for circulation: and secondly, the money
used for bank reserves. These two
divisions interconnect, and their Influence on the money market is regulated by the same causes, As wages
throughout the world are paid in
cash, with any improvement in trade
and Industry the volue of money In
circulation advances by leeeps and
bounds. When production, manufacture and transport are In full swing
workmen secure both regular employment and increased wage' rates. Thus
at the end of the-' week each worker
finds more money in his pocket, as.
firstly, he has worked a creater number of days; and, secondly, the dally
rate of pay is higher. When this is
pplied to tens of millions of workers, it will be at one seen that the
Within the past year or two the farmers and fruit
growers of British Columbia have awakened to the necessity for organization to give them the maximum returns from their land. While the movement on this coast
is practically a new one and as yet has been but imperfectly acted upon, the need has been felt and the remedy has
been in course of application for some time across the
water in the old land where there are many object lessons
which might be drawn from for the education of the men
on the land in this province.
No man who is or has been a farmer and who has been
accustomed to supply his needs at retail prices and market
his produce at wholesale figures will deny the necessity
for a change and no farmer who has studied the question
can fail to arrive at the conclusion that thorough organization will prove the cure of the ilj.
Heretofore agriculture has been helpless in the hands
of the politician and the wholesaler alike because every
farmer has acted for himself as an isolated individual. He! a
has bought for himself at retail prices and he has sold K���ect .��� thi, wlthdrawal 0|* money
for himself at wholesale figures.   Now it has been proved j from the banking centres   is   very
in England that by organization the farmer can reverse i����� cal] on  i]u, ___t of the banks
the conditions and can buy at wholesale rates and dispose ami financial houses for money is controlled by exactly the same causes.
Hankers In sell parts of the world follow ti principle of retaining a cash
reserve bearing certain proportion to
their liabilities. These liabilities automatically rise or fall, in accordance
with trade conditions. When trade is
bad, new developments are at a minimum and prices are low. As trade
Improves the amount of money engaged advances noi only on the increased
volume of the commodities negotiated, but also from t'.ie rising prices
that invariably accompany improving
! trade,
The trade of the world is carried on
on credit, and as this credit advances
in total, bankers must either obtain
more gold or must gradually see the
proportion that their reserves bear to
the total amount of credit sink. x

When one realizes that this mineral
must be as old as the hills themselves

strange that it has eluded discovery

that the white* unstable metal was successfully Isolated In a pun* condition.
But ttie salts are sufficient tor all
practical  purposes.
The extraction from pitchblende is
tedious and costly, for the proportion
of radium is only one part In five million. The ore Is crushed, "roasted."

Then after a si ries of treatments,
there Is left a solution which contains
radium. Three processes of fractional

The rays are of three different
kinds, known as alpha, beta and gamma. Tbey are invisible to the eye,

Three   Rays.
Tiie alpha "ray" is the projection cf
small particles charged with positive
electricity and flung out nt a great
velocity. Their number has been estimated, and a grain oi radium bromide
Is said t" liberate ten ttioin-utiid million such particles per second. Thev

space the spectrum of helium, a completely different element slowly develops, lt is believed that this Ib an
instance of the transmutation of one
element into another���"the dream of
the alchemists fulfilled." In keeping
with this are the facts established by
spectroscopic analysis that every radio-active ore contains helium, and
the sun. where helium has long been
known to exist, also contains radium.
Ihe beta rays are composed of a
stream of electrons, or "units of negative electricity," traveling In every
direction at varying- rates up to 170,-
uOO miles per second���almost the velocity of light. Their power of penetration ia considerable, and some of
them will pass through a quarter of
an inch of lead. The gamma rays form
only one-hundredth part of the total
radiation, and are of the same nature
as X-rays, but their penetrating power
almost baffles belief. Thus they will
pass without preceptible. lessening of

and will affect a photographic plat.*

Inexhaustible Energy.
"Emanation Is a brightly luminous
gas given off from radium salts In solution, lt has been named Niton by
Sir \V. Ramsay, lt Is formed at a definite rate in the process of decay of
radium, and rapidly changes Into a
complex substance known as the "ac-

three types of rays. When reillum is
kept dry, the gas not not separate,
but these changes take place in and
around each minute particle at the
same unvarying rate. The escape of
an Infinitesimal amount of this gas
In a room will cause* everything In the
room to become radio-active for a considerable time. By keeping radium in
solution the emanation may be removed day after day, year after year,
without appreciable' loss, thus providing an Inexhaustible source of energy

The specific charge against the men
is that they violated the ordinance

decision  to a  Westminster  boy.
This was the bout between A. Wilcox of the 104th and Davison of the
V. A. C. Although to the rlngslders
Wilcox overcame the lead which Davison obtained in the first two rounds,
the judges failed to agree lo a decision and another round was ordered. This was also gained by Wilcox but. the bout was called a draw.
In the third round Wilcox hammered
his opponent around the ring and
but for the bell would have* bad liis

The feature bout of the evening
was the hist one when Cecil Mnvieis
Showed the local fans he ls there

the 104th, and O'Brien of the V. A.

tin' critics close In, tlle low stuff
was   plainly   visible.
Swales, V. A. Ci outclassed Sait of
the 104th In a fast three rounds, the
local boy holding his own until the
I'.iul Pedersen and A. McKlnnon
went through three rounds of shadow
boxlhg to a no decision, both boys
displawBR considerable ability of
foot  work.
The  same  can  be  said  of  the  bout
between Len Holllday and Dud
Soulee both <����� the C. A. C, although
Sullies with hia long roach outpointed his man.
Sid Woods of the V. A. C. and
Tommy Little, 104th, created a little
excitement. Woods winning the decision  on   points.
Little's side* awing caused no li'tle

The Straight Line
in Creating Demand
"A Straight Line is the
Shortest Distance between Tv^o Points"
Whatever troubles old Euclid gave us in our schooldays
his axioms were simple enough. In our business life
to-day we show a lively appreciation 6f the truth of this
axiom in cutting out superfluous efforts���in the saving of
time and  labor.
In making goods the straight line is "efficiency." It is
the shortest distance between raw material and finished
In Selling Goods, tiie straight line is
Newspaper Advertising.
It is the shortest distance between the seller and the buyer.
Some manufacturers are applying the straight line in the
making of their goods, but neglecting it in the selling of
them. Some have no line of communication with the consumer at all���many let their message meander along bypaths of "chance acquaintanceship" instead of telegraphing it along the straight line of Newspaper Advertising.
Newspaper Advertising is the Shortest Distance between
the two points of "Supply" and "Demand." ,

If you are doing a provincial or national butineu it would
be well for you lo have the couns.���! and assistance of a good advertising ngency. A list of these will be furnished, without cost or

Charles Hopkins, wanted for at least
j three murders, tha criminal career,
temporarily at least, of a desperado
in whom the local police have a more
than passing interest, has come to un
| ond. The chase* after Hopkins began
two days after he was deported from
Victoria, about February lf>. after
serving a  three  months' sentence  In
j the local provincial  jail on  a charge
' of having illegally entered Canada.
Immediately after that followed the
murder by him in the St. .lames hotel.
Seattle, of an Englishman, Robert
Hodges,   whom   he  killed   with  a   bed
badly worn and his hat was ragged.
Detective Inspector (Ieorge M. Perdue gave him a felt hat and Detective' Macdonald presented him with a
pair of tan buttoned boots which
were a size too small for the detective. Doubtless when Hopkins was
caught by the posse of Skatgit county
his hat bore the Initials of 0. M. P.
Tin* descriptions given out by police
officials across the line following his
escape from'Seattle, and also after
the murder at Kvere't last Saturday
night mention the tan boots.
Much has been said in the press
and police descriptions of Hopkins
as tho "tattooed bandit." He had a
number of tattoo marks and designs
on his person, but the description
stating that he had tattooed on the
fingers of both hands the words "True
Love" is incorrect. On the fingers of
the left hand the word "love" is
tattooed, a letter to each finger, commencing with the first finger just below the knuckle.
The past    history    of    Hopkins    is
The measures underlie a part of

western eta'(���:,. The' fact that the
forestry bureau put up such a hard
firilu for the retention of the ground
lends ee-Ior to the belief that the conservation movement was promulgated
largely in the interests of the anthracite cotil trust, which annually ships
thousands of tons of hard coal from
the eastern states to the Pacilic seaboard.
