Vancouver, Feb. 17. A company is
now in course of promotion to supply
coal to the Prince Rupert murkit.
The name of lhe company is ihe Ctn-
adian North Pacific Corri any. Lid.,
with an authorised capital of *1,000.CU0,
with head office at 85 Hastings street
west. The company controls nine
square miles of coal  land on  Graham
Island,   Immediately   "i podU   Prince
Rupert City, und will be but 60 n.iles
distant by bont or ferry-
It is the intention nf the management of the company to open up the
six-foot warn of coal which outcrops nt
the upper end of the property and sea
front. The fact that the property has
four miles fronting on deep sea removes
any hindrance to development work
through absence of a railroad, since it
is possible to dump roal direct from
this coal seam into the boats.
There is an abundance of thi* finest
timber on the property, which will
prove most useful in the development
of the property within lhe mine itself
and in building piers, wharves and

Prof. R. G. Aitken of Tick University, Says There May Be Vegetation, But No Intelligent Life���Some Interesting Facts  About Planet
"There  ma.   be some of  the lower I
forms of life and vegetation on Mars,'
but ut present there is pretty certainly i
no  astronomical  evidence  in  favor of
intelligent life in the solar system outside of the earth.   This is the conclusion
Of Prof. R. 0. Aitkin of Lick Observa-
io.*y, om, of thi> most eminent of present
day   astronomers,  in  a  recent  lecture
before ih" Astronomical Society.
Prof. Aitkin points out that the* con-;
elusion is not necessarily ihat there isi
no other life in the universe.   If asked
were there life nowhere else in the uni-!
verse,  the    could  only  resort  to  the,
mathematical   theory   of   probabilities.
If 1,000,000 grains of corn were gathered i
in a head, wiih one red grain among
tin in. and a blind man tried to chooso|
a grain on pain of death if he took the
lion to one. If the 1,500 millions of lhe
eanh stepped up one by one, choosing
a grain nnd dropped it again, 1,500 out
of ihe millions would get the red grain.
In the 200 or 2,00(1 millio s of stars
there were just 200 or 2,000 chancer of
uny pr. Minting any viabh conditions.
"Hut the production and maintenance
of life is one of nature's chief ends and]
aims.    Life appeared on thu earth all
soon  us co ditions were nndy for it,:
and. all hough we may never b. able io
tax- it    r prove it, we have no re..s n
for saying or thinking that  ihere are.
not Othtf suns surrounde    by planets
peopled by intelligent beings."
Turnin to the terrestrial planets,.
Prof. Ail ken said that H ihi one side |
of Mercury was seven i'mes as ho^ as
thc nrth and t e other side immeasurably cold, this "world" w- ��� certainly
nol habitable.
"The time which it takes Venus to
rotate is as yel an open question," said
he speaker;    'and upon that problem
depends the possibility of this planet's
sustaining life, if Venus rotates once
within 23 hours and 50 minutes, us sonk-
authorities claim, it i* probably r.uit-
ablo fo ihe sustenance of life. Bui as
I have said, this question is still unsettled."
Ther upon   Prof.   Aitkin   turned   to
what  he called  "ihe  Planet  of  Mys-1
ury"    Mars.   The* question of the pos-]
sibiliiy of sustaining life on Mais was j
noi a que'uio   of axial rotation.   In its
time of rotation, succession of seasons
and axial inclination,    Mars was very
similar to ihe earth.   The crucial ques-j
tiona were:   Dois Mars show signs of j
waier?   And are wa io regard its 'canals I
as   artificially   constructed���lho   work I
of intelligent beings?   The markings on I
Mars pn-s. nted very much the appear-1
anct that one might expect to ski on j
the earth if it were possible to go up in
B balloon and observe it from a sufficient
distance.     The   impression   given   by
teles opic   photographs   of   Mars   was
not of a Outwork of artificial canals, but
0      series of irregular markings.   The |
marking   on Mar   undoubtedly altered I
with   sea oncd   changes,   which   might
indicate,   the   pre* net   of   vegetation.
Vegetation   could   not   exist,   however,
without   water-vapor.     From   ������*   series
of observations mddc last y'-ar (mm
the highest point in lhe United States,
Mount    Whitr.i-y,    14,000   feet    above
thc sea level, Dr. Campbell had conu
to  thc  conclusion  thut   astronomically
Mars showed no more definite sign of
ihe* existence of wanr-vapor lhan did
the moon."

last night.
Just in From Stewart, Where Weather Is Still Severe
The C. P. R. steamer Princess Ena
is in from Stewart to discharge two
hundred tons of coul here for Messrs.
Rogers & Black. The Ena has come
from Stewart where she landed a hundred
tons of coal for the same firm's branch
there, and also 10,000 ties which she
loaded at Swanson Bay on her way
north for the Pacific & North Western
Railway. Weather conditions at Stewart are reported still severe. Hard
frost prevailed during the Ena's stay
there. Her decks were sheathed three
inches thick in ice while at the wharf,
und she had to force her way out of
the harbor through two and a half
inches of ice on the surface of the water.
These conditions are, however, considered most unusual. About four feet
of snow still remains crisp and hard
upon the townsite, and there was little
sign of thawing when thc Princess Ena

Five Questions for Aid. Smith
Certain members of the City Council are very much in tbe public eye at
present owing to to the era of patronage the Council has inaugurated. A defence is now being offered. Last night the Conservative organ came out with
a defence of the incident where Aid. Smith voted to pay Aid. Newton's printing account, in the face of legal advice that the city was not liable for the bill,
and which was followed by Aid. Newton moving to reduce the license fee of
Aid. Smith's playhouse from $200 to SCO.
[f tbe Journal's defence la an attempt to make the matter one of party
politics it is a reprehensible move. If the Council ure paying bills to some of
their number which are not legal, or contemplating rebates to companies in
which some of them are interested, it is with the public money. Conservative
ratepayers money ns well as Liberal ratepayers money. There is no place for
party politics in municipal affairs; certainly there should be none in a question
of safeguarding the public money. The public will probably be in no way deceived by Hi * Journal's attempt. It is an indication of where that organ's
loyalty lies, when the interests of the public and the party clash.
J'ut the theatre license question  is  not  the  only  one  people  are  talking
ahout.   There is the question of the electric light plant appointments.     People
are wondering why Aid. Smith as chairman of the  Electric  Light Committee
took away from the City Engineer the authority vested  in  him   by   last  years
Council to appoint his own staff.    Perhaps to clear  up a lot  of  questioning  in
the minds of many citizen's, Conservative as  well as  Liberal,   Aid.   Smith as
chairman of the Electric Light Committee will answer the following questions:
(1) ���Whether it is true that the man Allison whom he recommended for
appoinment  as  assistant  enginer  is  a  cousin  or  other relation of
the alderman?
(2)���Whether it is true that Mr. Allison has only been a resident of  the
city for a few weeks, and has no vote?
(3)-Whether it is true in recommending  the  appointment  to  the  committee he urged that Allison be given the job "because he  is  worth
$20,000,   and  would  therefore  be  a  desirable citizen," or words to
that effect?
(4)-Whether it is true that on the night of the  13th  of  February,   this
same man Allison was sent to pump water from Hays Creek into the
city's mains, and knew so little about the machinery that he did not
close the release valve, with the result that he  merely  pumped  the
water out of the creek and back into the creek again?
(5)-Whether the appointment of Mr. Allison will result in the discharge
of any of the other city employes at the electric light plant,   especially some man who may happen to be  a qualified  and  experienced
engineer, with a home, a vote and  a  permanent interest  in   Prince
Which One is Wrong?
The Journal has evidently had its head turned by that $225,000 appropriation to Skeena. It assured the public last night that the McBride government
had "provided liberal means for developing the resources of this part of the
country" and that Skeena is "coming into its own."
We have already pointed out that the amount for the whole of Skeena district
is only one-eighth of the amount the Federal Government is spending on a dry
dock for Prince Kupert. Now Mr. Wm. Manson comes forward to confute the
Journal. In his speech on the Budget, as reported in the Empire, the report
reads'. "Touching on public works appropriations, Mr. Manson said while there
was |825,000 for the Skeena district, this was insufficient ... he hoped much
larger appropriations would be provided next year . . . Skeena district was one
the largest contributors to the revenue of the province, and its area was the
largest of any district in thu province."
This Is Record for Province and Over
Quarter of Whole Dominion Production���Copper Shows Decrease
but Improvement Is Looked For.
A bulletin just issued by the Provincial
Bureau of Mines, which includes a preliminary estimate of the mineral production of British Columbia for the
year 1!)10, shows thc output of mines
to have exceeded that of any year in
the history of the province.
The approximate production for the
year was $20,183,505, the best previous
record having been that of 1907, when
the total was $25,882,560.
The  total  estimate  for  all   Canada
last year is $95,000,000.
The following table shows thc value
of the various minerals produced during
the year:
Gold, placer     $482,000
Gold, lode '.     5,198,505
Total gold $5,680,505
Silver     1,282,500
Lead     1,480,000
Copper    4,972,500
Zinc       184,000
Total metalliferous  13,599,509
Coal  9,800,000
Coke  1,284,000
Building materials, etc  1,500,000
Total production  26,183,505
The production of gold shows an
increase of $280,000 over that of 1909.
There was a decrease in production of
silver, lead, and copper, largely accounted for, in the case of the two first-
mentioned minerals, by the disastrous
effects of the forest fires in the Slocan
district.    Various causes were respon-

THE G. T. P.
Will Give Them a Sum of Money
and New Reserve Deal is approved
by Governments at Ottawa nd
Vancouver, Feb. 18.���After negotiation* extending over two years, the
Grand Trunk Piicitie has at last been
successful in securing the Indian reserve
at North Fort Gcorce for townsite
Difficulty was experienced in gcttinK
the Indians to abandon their reserve,
as they held out for terms which the
railway company regarded ns excessive,
but wh'ch, it is understood, have been
acceded to. The Indians, in addition to
the payment of a money consideration
for every member of the tribe, will be
placed on a new 750 acre reserve on the
Fraser river, fifteen miles east of Fort
George. They will be transferred there
during the coming spring.
The deal between the railway company
and the Indians has been approvetl by
the Indian department at Ottawa, and it
is said the provincial government has
consented to the arrangement.
The Grand Trunk Pacific will undertake the work of subdividing the town-
site this summer. It is situated on the
south bank of the Nechaco river, near
its conlluenee with the Fraser. The railway company also owns an addition in
the same vicinity, and the two parcels
will be embraced in one townsite.

Says Tariff Wall is Illogical and Useless. Some Straight Talk to the
Legislature of Illinois Upon Question of the Hour
j    Sprint-field,  111.,  Feb.   16.-President
Tail defended the proposed reciprocity
, agreement  with Canada in an address
I before   the    Illinois    Legislature   here
; today,  as  the  "logical  conclusion"  of
' thc  protection  plank  in  the  last  Republican   national   platform.     He   de-
lined   the   protection   theory   as   one
that   should   impose  a   tariff   not   exceeding the difference in cost of production  in   this  country  and   abroad,
[ antl  allowing  a  fair  margin  of  profit
for  the   home  producer.    He  argued,
i therefore,  that  inasmuch  as  the  con-
j ditions   of   production   in   the   United
! States and Canada "were substantially
the same, the widest latitude was given
Secretary Knox antl the commissioners
i who   represented   the    United   States
in ottering Canada a reduction of duties
in   goods   and   products   coming   into
this country from ('a nail a in consideration of thp same duty or freedom from
duty, on similar goods going to Canada."
Theories ot Protection
The President explained that it was
thought   wiser  on  behalf of the  governments not to make a formal treaty,
"but  to  make an  agreement  between
the executives by  which each  should
] submit  the  agreement  in  the  form  of
a statute to be enacted, and lo go into
force on condition that a similar statute
; was proposed by the legislature of the
I other country."   He said in part:
"This  form  of  agreement  makes  it
] one   from   which   each   country   can
withdraw   at   will  by simply changing
ithe statute  by  new  legislation.    The
President  said  he was  a  protectionist,
i and  there   were  certain   industries   in
| the  United  States  which   needed   the
encouraging   effect   of   a   tariff   upon
imports from foreign countries to enable the payment of good wages, and
give a reasonable profit to those who
engage in such industries.
"Hut there was always a temptation to combine, and by that the price
could be controlled, and thus the excessive tariff was taken advantage of.
This led to a modification of the protection theory, and to a declaration
that the protection of any industry
ought not to exceed more than the
difference between the cost of the
production abroad and the cost of
production at home. This would give
u fair profit to the domestic producer.
Wages in Canada
"This limitation necessarily took away
any grounds for a tariff between thia
country and uny country in which thc
conditions of production were substantially the same. The conditions of
production of manufacture in the United
Slates and in Canada are substantially
the same.
"Wages may differ in one part of
Canada from another part just us
wages differ in different stutes in this
country, but the price paid per unit
of work is not substantially less in
Canada than in (his country.
"In many cases where the agreement has been criticized for not milking better reductions, wc could not
secure them becuuse in the judgment
of our Cnnudinn friends the trade or
industry which they desired to foster
would suffer by a grenter reduction.
Thus, with respect to meats, we would
huve been glad to put them on the
free list. Canada objected und we
obtuined the best figures wc could.
The President said the criticism
that reductions hud been avoided purposely on manufactured articles wus
wholly unfounded ond thot a reciprocity agreement between the United
States und Canada must of necessity
relate more to agricultural products
than to manufactures.
Unnecessary Tariff Will
'lhe Presidenl furtl.c-r imtuAtA
in removing th,. artificial barrier, ll
tween the northwestern pan J ��1
United States and Canadian m��|
the agreement would bring Uveal
to feed on the corn ol th. *.���, * I
farmer.    The Presidenl sii;, ��*f
���tap could be taken more in thc intol
of a reasonable policy of protectiS
than the approval of the treaty andtS
insistence would arouse an opprjwl
in the country that will knou no mod*
at ion.
He said that thnt wan hia raJ
for favoring the creation nf "u, -J
pert tariff commission.
"We   have   taken   up  these ihij-l
that  are involved in a ( ansdittil
procity treaty because opportunity^
fered." declartd Presidenl Tad into,.
elusion.    Now   is  ilu- accepter] .ju,.
Canada is at the parting ol the ��m
Shall  she   be  an   isolated eotinrty B
much separated from us as if -hewn
across  the  ocean,  or shall her teoopie
and our people profit hy the proximhy i
that our geography furnishes and ������__.
ulate the trade Bcross the border tut
nothing but a useless, illogical and ta* I
necessary tariff wall now hinders."

I their journey.    They  bought  or were
' presented with a small supply of food
' from   every  camp  or  fellow  traveller
! they passed    If the day drew a blank,
well  they  went  without,  unless they
succeeded in landing a fish, satisfying
the demands of little Mary with berries.
"Where have you come from?" we
"Wolf Creek."
"What's the game'.'"
"Hiking to I'rince Rupert."
Phew This was something like a
walk. They had already covered about
180 miles and had something like
another thousand and odd miles in
front of them.
They observed our looks with incredulity.
"It's a fact," they went on. "We've
heard so much about the place that we
are going there to get a job."
"But how are you going to get down
the Fraser?"
"That's just what's puzzling us.
We're told there's no trail along the
river to Fort George. But we guess
by the time we reach Tete Jaune Cache
that we'll find some means of getting
down, and once we get to Fort George
why the rest's dead easy."
That is a graphic instance of the
wonderful faith which I'rince Rupert
has inspired in the breasts of many a
young man who had little or no actual
knowledge of the place that was filling
his mind with hallowed opportunities
It is related by Frederick A. Talbot
in the Worlds Wor magazine in an
entrancing article of his experiences
while on the trail through the Rockies.
He closes the incident with these pregnant words: "And away they went
buoyed up with red hot enthusiasm."
That simple paragraph of human interest put reams of real estate advertising to shame. It expresses the
appealing spirit of the west and particularly of this northern burg in terse
and impressive tones. It draws a picture
for the mind to gloat and wonder over.
It breathes the sentiment of the soulful
that neither the fires can consume nor
tl I waters quench.
Another rather amusing incident n
related by Mr. Talbot in connection
with Mount Robson. It reads as
follows: "From our camp the sides of
Mount Robson appeared to drop precipitously into apparent nothingness.
Though the Rev. It. Kinney (who had
just previously astounded the camp by
declaring lhat he hud compiered thc
peak) has waxed enthusiastic in his
description of the beauties around its
feet we set oil to investigate these
scenic attractions. But the going was
heavy. The country was piled eight
and ten feet high with deud trees which
hud fallen crosswise in an impenetrable
maze. It was a case of climb, hack and
chop the way foor by foot. Then we
tumbled into an extensive bog through
which progress was painfully slow and
difficult. A cedar grove then opened
before us and many of these mammoth trees, more than six feet in diameter proved formidable barriers. These
had to be climbed by dint of great
effort and with a sharp eye for "shags"���
sharp pointed deud branches���which
have greater ripping and tearing power
than a bayonet.
Not the sign of a (rail was to be
seci through this dense broken mass
of  tangled   frost  and  loose  rock  and
temerity to wander into the iso ate
inaccessible corner the raft was poled
into the bank and there was revealed
the startling announcement: "SITE
FOR MACKENZIE'S HOTEL." Another instance of the irrespressible
Scot. Traces of his enterprise in a most
out of the way nook He hud taken
time by the forelock with u vengeance;
had got in on the ground floor before
the structure was' even thought of, and
his claim wus carefully staked out and
every necessary compliance with the law
faithfully observed

"Look here, old man, I want your
advice. I've been thinking seriously
of marrying lately, and���I may as well
make a clean breast of it; there are
two girls simply chucking themselves
at my head, and I can't make up my
mind. The one I prefer, really, hasn't
a penny of her own; the other is simply rolling in money, but I don't seem
to care a button for her somehow.
What would you do in the circumstances?"
"Good heavens, man Do you mean
to say you hesitate for a moment?
What is life without love? It embellishes one's whole existence. It���it���
why, I could go on for hi.urs about it."
"You mean you'd give the shekels
thc go-by?"
"Give them the go-by I should
just think I would unless you want to
be miserable for the rest of your life."
(After a pause.) "I say, though, you
might give me thc name and address
of that girl you tlon't care about."

"In the matter ol the demand of the
Prince Rupert Industrial Association
for a wage arte of 45 cents per hour, the
committee report that it will recommend
to the council at next council meeting,
that a plebiscite be taken at us early a
date as possible."
This is the result of the session yesterday  afternoon,  of thc (committee  appointed by the city council to look into
the matter of the wage rate*.    When
the committee met yesterduy at three
p.m. a  number of the representatives
of the P.  R. I. A. were present, and
Alderman   Hilditch   mentioned  that   if
they  desired  to add  anything  to  the
evidence they had already given an opportunity  would  he Riven them  then.
The workers had nothing further to add.
On their behalf, however, Mr. Fraser
! said  that   they  were anxious to  have
i a decision one way or the other as soon
; as possible and  did  not  care to wait
until information sent for by Alderman
, Hilditch from Vancouver, arrived.
It was accordingly agreed that thc
I council's committee should sit at once.
| Alderman Hilditch promised that the
| result of the deliberation should be
1 posted on the City Rail Notice Hoard
as soon as the committee roue, and this
I was done.
An impression existed among the
I workers that it was the intention of
the committee to turn their demand
right down, and had this been done
it was planned that a meeting of workers
should at once be called to consider
the advisability of a resort to stronger
measures, in any case the decision of
the committee will be the subject of
discussion at next meeting of the P. R.
