Times has supported Moore.
Miller had the supiHirt of th-
lJost-IntelIlgencer.
Tlie latest bulletins received
showed that. Miller was leading

press associations into one national
body or to form a new organization
that will extend over the whole Dominion.

ASTRONOMER  SAYS MARS
HAS NO  WATER   VAPOR
New York. Mar. 2���Dr. S. A. Mitchell, professor of astronomy at Columbia University, states that Professor Percival Lowell's repored discovery of water vapor existing on
Mars is not credible. He said the
discovery which Professor Lowell is
reported to have made at Flagstaff,
Ariz., would be impossible with a telescope of the small size reponed to
have   een used.   Dr. Mitchell says:
''Dr. I.owel]'_ object in establishing
the l.resenceof water vapors on Mars!
Is this;    He believes that the planet
is    iriha.ited.    It   is   now    generally
conceded   that   ihe    temperature    ofi
.Mars  is twenty   degrees   below zero. 1
Canals and waterways are Impossible
under such conditions.    To provide a
mild, climate  for the   Martians, Dr.!
Lowell   has    long been In search   ofl
this  vapor,   which,  if   i't    succeeded, 1
would act as a blanket, absorbing the!
sun's heat.    He says he has found it.
How does 'ie reconcile this discovery j
with   bis   previous  theory  thai   Mars I
is ;i barren desert, irrigated by an intricate series of canals ?   It seems to I
me   his    theory    contradicts    itself. |
Either a   desert   with  canals  and  no
'water  vapor or else an    atmosphere
teemin gwith   water  vapor    and    noi
ean. 1; and   no  desert    Surely.  Mars,
can't  have all  these things."

over it the loyal Conservatives of British Columbia are asked by a Conservative newspaper to "succeed or secede."

PROSPECTUS.
This company is formed for the purpose of supplying the City of Vancouver with absolutelj clei     ���)
pure milk of the highest quality, free from drugs and deleterious germs.   The need of such a mil
so well known that there is no need  to dilute on this question, the plans of the Company ,
earnest support of the Medical Society, t'.ie Provincial and City  Health  Officers, and  ever;   d ictor      (hi
City.
An option has been secured at a very favorable price on the well known Cruickshank Farm .. \i, q.,:
close to the C. P. R., and on the route of the Chilliwack train line. This property comprise 61 ... 0*
which 400 acres are in a high state of cultivation, and the balance is rich pasture. It is pn posi - ��� , erect
thoroughly modern barns with cnnient floors throughout, well ventilated and lighted, and a modern ;.j
bottling plant, shipping by special refrigerator car to Vancouver every day.
The price to be given for the farm is $75,000, or about $117 per acre,  a  very  low  figure i ;,.
the quality of the land, the improvements ami the situation.    It would  be hard  to find    a farm     ettei
adapted for the   purpose of a large modern dairy,    The terms of purchase are $25,000 cash, and thi
ance in fully-paid shares of the Company.
From the sum of $100,000 to be realized  from the sale of 10,000 shares now offered, there Will ��� m In
$73,000 after  paying the cash  portion of the price of the farm propertv.   It is believed that th sai
will be sufficient for the erection of the necessary buildings and equipment and the purchase of a ioui 50I
cows, especially selected after careful examination.
. THE NEED OF A PURE MILK SUPPLY.
The City has no authority at the present time to inspect any dairies outside t'ae City. The I oi wj
proposes to give it this authority, so far as its own tbarns and premises are concerned, and will i om<
such inspection at all times. It also proposes to ask the Medical Association to appoint a committei .; d
spection.
The City records of 1907 show 14s. deaths of babies under twelve months' old, and  medical n      .   .
stated their opinion that at least 90 per cent., or say 133, of these deaths are directly    traceable   to   mill;,
either drugged or contaminated al time of consumption.   It is needless to say that lis does not   by   anj
means cover the tola] number of deaths of children, as it'is the number of those under- twelve tui
age only.
Out of thirty samples of milk collected in Vancouver during 1907 and analyzed by the Domlnio
eminent authorities, only two samples reach 3% per cent., which ls the average Canadian percen
butter fat), and fourteen of them were officially described as eltfner watered or skimmed, and wi ���
:', per cent., which is the Vancouver City standard.
THE   PRESENT  DIFFICULTIES.
The average farmer and milk vendor is perhaps unaware of the need of the most scrupulous clea     ��� ���
in every detail in the handling and deliver} of milk, and lacks the    necessary capital  for the en i
cement floored bams, properly lighted and ventilated, the equipment of refrigerating and bottling i     ��� ������
ery, and the employment of men technically  trained In what is now'recognized  as  a  business    requiring
scientific care and management. ;
Withoiii a supply of natural ice, or the means of artificial refrigeration, milk cannot be kept diuiiig thi
period of twenty-four to forty-eight hours which elapses between milking and delivery, without the ol
powerful preservatives, such as formaldehyde, etc. Tills drug prevents milk turning sour, even if exposed
to the sun, but this and other preservatives are very dangerous.
WHAT THE   HYGIENIC   MILK   COMPANY WILL DO.
This Company will supply milk only of the highest standard, both as to quality and purity. It dor nol
propose to pasteurize milk, which at test is a makeshift.
It should be clearly understood that pasteurized milk is not pure milk; it is only impure milk which
has been renovated, and the impurities to a greater or less extent removed.
Tae very fact that milk needs pasteurizing is in itself a suspicious circumstance. This Company sever
intends having milk on any of its premises in need Of renovation, as it will keep only healthy cows, which
will he under constant veterinary supervision; the milk, when produced, will be pure and absolute:;, i lean,
and will be kept in that conditiou until delivered to the consumer.
immediately after milking, the milk will be aerated and cooled to a temperature of 38 degrees, put in sealed bottles and delivered at the doors of customers' exactly as it left the farm, and at the same temperature; this will prevent the need of drugs In summer to keep it sweet, and will also prevent the propagation of injurious bacteria in the milk, to which is attributable the enormous infantile mortality iu the
City and district.
MANAGEMENT.
Arrangements have been completed to secure the services of a well known dairy expert as general niau-
ager. This gentleman has successfully operated one of the largest creameries in Canada, and has made ti
special study of all matters connected with the handling and feeding of cattle.
Paper estimate, of profits are some times delusive, so the directors content themselves with pointing cut
the well known fact that all the dairy farmers in the district have been for many years doing very well is"
deed, and the milk distributors have been doing even better, one firm being credited with making a pro"'
of $100 per day all last summer.
It is well known that in no part of Canada can cow feed be produced cheaper than in the Lower
Eraser Valley, and as similar companies in the United States, which sell their milk at lower prices thau
,are current here, pay good dividends, there is no reason why this Company should not do the same, M
the use of milking machines and labor saving devices in handling the feed, manure, etc., etc., should (lffs,'t
the higher wages of this Coast. _
IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The Company aim to keep BOO cows, but lt w.ll bo obviously impossible to get tills number In a >'""'���'
and while every effort w!H be made to deliver milk by June, before l..e hot weather begins, it Is doubtful if
more than 100 cows can f. e obtained by then and the necs.sary barns and buildings completed. In selllni
the milk, preference will naturally have to bo given to the shareholders of the Company, and It Is -ol
likely there will be any surplus for sale to the general public for at least the first year of operation, and
���as tl.ure will be probably many people of small means in urgent need of thla milk, the shares have been
put at a-price, and ou terms, within the reach of all.

Seattle. March 2���After facing innumerable dangers for more than four
years, seeing two companions kilted
in cold blood by a mo. in Morocco,
traversing many of the countries of
Europe. Africa and Asia at 61 years
of age, braving hunger and cold in
perilous mountain passes and across j
deserts, and always afoot, H. J. M.
Nikoloff, a Bulgarian, has arrived in
Seattle as his intermediate stop on
what is considered by many one of
the longest tramping trips the world
has ever seen. He reached the United
States on the Japanese liner Tonga
Maru.
Nlkoloff does not expect to return
to his native country before 1915, but
when he does return he will be the
only man ln Bulgaria who will hold
the record for knowing the habits and
customs of all the peoples of the
earth, for there will be few countries,
civilized or otherwise, that Xikoloff
will not have passed through In the
course of his tremendous journey.
Crowned heads, and many of them.
have writen their autographs in a big
book earired by Mr. Nlkoloff for that
purpose, and the great seals of many
countries appear In the    volume   to
certify that the wanderer has in fact I
visited those places that he claims to
have visited.    The Bulgarian will   re-1
main in Seattle for a couple of weeks i
and  then  start  eastward.    When  he |
arrives  in  Washington the  signature
of President Roosevelt will be asked
I for the .big book    of the    traveller.
After  exhausting the  possibilities of!
the United States he will go to South j
America.   While in this city Mr. Ni- j
koloff is living at the Ivory hotel, 530 j
First Avenue South.
Nlkoloff is not only a student of
human  nature and  of manners  and
customs, but he is also an enthusiastic seeker after new and rare forms I
of plant life.    His  scientific attain* j
