Abbot makes no assertion that tho mysterious wireless signals do come from another II planet, but says If they do Mara Is 'J eliminated as a possibility 'becnusa 'i known conditions on that planet probably i would not permit tho existence of any form of living creature. '; \In the first place,'; snys Dr. Abbot. \on account of the greater distance 'J'nenrly two and a half times leaa radla- - tlon from the sun reaches Mars than i reaches the earth. It Is probably nearly ! 100 degrees colder on the average on that distant planet than on tho earth. ?, Knowing what low temperatures occur on this earth In tho course ot the winter season, It will readily bo realised what 100 degrees colder would mean. Xo .Water Vnlior In Air. \In tho second place, even If any ft form ot life could wlthatand that degree S of coldlt Is definitely known by the In-- I! vesications of DIreMor Oampbell ot Wck Observatory that thero Is prac- - tlcally no water vapor In the atmosphere \ surrounding Mars, which fact crosses out the possibility of that planet's support-- ! lug any veietatlon-o- r other form of food \ for living creatures. !! \The polar caps which are seen on i, Mara may bo either hoar frost from the mlnuto traces of water vapor In the m Martian atmosphere or. what Is quite Mirobable, frosen carbonic acid gas. \rne IJno-calle- d 'canals' ot Mara are except as Indefinite markings, ac-- U cording to such telescopic observers as II Barnard, Halo and others who have ob J served with great telescopes under well 'Inlgh perfect condition. \But. It Is objected, there may be \other strange forms of beings which V, need no water or vegetation or \heat. This also Is reduced to Impossibility by V. the fact that all living things are made iup largely of different compounds of !!raibon. While tho stellar spectrum hows that there Is carbon on all hea- venly bodies, the chemical combinations J J of this element such as are required for i life mostly require temperatures above 1'. fretalng to prevent rigidity. So the ex-- m tremely low temperatures on Mars, prob. 'J ably never higher than rero. would not Hallow the carbon compounds to exist In JJ a condition suitable for originating life. If Venns Much Ulce Enrth. Jl \The planet Venus, on the other hand, shows even; condition necessary for ;jmalntalnlng life. It isnearly the same isle ns the earth and Is even nearer tho JJun than the carlh Is. This apparently , would make the climate considerably 'hotter on Venus, except for the fact that \the atmosphere surrounding Venus Is continually, cloudy. This universal cloud-JJines- s, by reflecting the radiation from the sun, reduces the temperature to 'about the same range as that expert-fence- d here on the earth, This cloudl- - -- Vness also shows a sufflcent amount of JJwater vapor to support vegetation and i.VtUj tnm F 1 An 111 nl.n.t Vmta ' \As regards the ppssibllty of recelv- -' ojng wireless messages irom anotner JJplanet, Venus at Us nearest approach to 4the earth Is 28,000,000 miles away, '\whereas Mars Is at least 50,000,000. ! '\From these considerations It may be concluded that If any planet Is trying JJto signal our earth it Is Venus and not \Mara. It can be proved definitely that JjMars Is unsulted for maintaining any conceivable form of life, while from the 'conditions prevailing on Venus there Is every reason to belleve.that that planet \may be populated by beings fairly si- milar to ourselves.\ , i.

GOULD IN CONFERENCES Military Candidates Managers Meots Metropolitan Dis- trict Politicians. Friends ot Major-Ge- Leonard Wood, whose business It Is to make a dally ap- praisal of tho condition of his boom for the Republican nomination for the Pres- idency, are doing not a little worrying pver the attitude of certain well known men In the party. They would like to have them nil with Wood, but It that cannot be, they ire anxious to flndout Just where the, sym- pathies of those men are. Among thosi whose position la puxsling the Wood leaders are W: Murray Crane of Massa- chusetts, Senator Boles Penrose of Pennsylvania. A. T. Hert of Kentucky, Ellhu Root of New York, George W. Pel kins of New York and Frank II. Hitchcock, who was chairman of the Na tlonal Committee in 1908. There havo been many surmises as to who was favored by former Senator Crunn. but there are few who pretend to know. The Wood leaders are rather reconciled to believe that he will not de Lclare for Wood, at least unless he shoul.l discover that the nomination ot tno uen-er- al was Inevitable. But they would like to know what other candidate hli Influence will be exerted for. Before he retired from the Wood movement John T, King had been try ing to swim; Senator Penrose Into ma: camp. He had not succeeded, anil ro far as ,tnoin none of the present Wood leaders has been near the S'nator who has been seriously 111 at his home In Phlladelpnln. It was stated that former Senator Root's position In the campaign had not been fixed and that Vr. Perkins could not be Bald to be any nearer the Wood candidacy than he was two weeks ago. \I confess I do not know whether the General will resign or not,\ said Repre- sentative Norman J, Gould, Eastern manager, last night. \I know that 1 am seeking opinions on the. advisability of It from every one to whom I talk.\ Mr. Gould said he did not know Just what significance, If any, there might be In the sudden withdrawal of several of the \favorlto sons,\ but he did feel that naturally It would help the chances of Gen. Wood tn such States. Representative Gould also was In touch with New Jersey, New York and Connecticut leaders. He goes Sunday to Chicago, where he will be In con- ference with Gtn.. Wood, Fred Stanley of Kansas, and Jimts J. McGraw of Okla homa on Monday. The latter has not been able to devote as much tlmo to puihtng tho Wood movement In the Southern central States, as he hail hoped, because. It Is said, his enemies are trying to undermine him In his own State. . . Formes Govrnor K. l Stokes of New Jersey sent th following despatch to Gen. Wood yesterday : \At a Joint tonference of the mem- bers of the Republican State Committee and the county chairmen of New Jer- sey, held yesterday at Trenton, yolir name was received with great applause and was practically the only one men- tioned for President. It was the only namo for which any Individual declared, and the applause showed a large ma- jority of the conference was for you.\ William P. Verdon of Hoboken. one of the Johnson leaders, (sserted that tho Wood movement there was part of a to land Senator Walter E.

B. Thompson Attacks . Great Propaganda Payroll. \This next campalg.i Is not going to be won with check 'books, at least not by the Republicans,\ declared Col. Will- iam Boyce Thompson, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee of the Republican National Committee, yes- terday. He wis speaking at a meeting of the New York State division of tho committee, of which former Senator William J. Tully Is head, held In the Union League-Club- . The ways and means committee has Veen organized to furnish the sus- tenance for the national campaign and the Colonel, therefore, la nn expert on campaign expenses. The Colonel referred to the elaborate organization for gathering money thit the Democrats havo established !n Washington. \Is it as it should be that the monthly payroll In that office Is already 560,000? I know your answer and l sk this. Is that political organization or Is it propjganoa? Is it democracy or Is it a bold attempt to throw back tho waters ot disaster with a dike of dol- lars? \Whatever It Is, what does it mean? It means this, that from a dollar and cents standpoint certain men feel that they have got to win the next elec- tion. They don't care what It Is going to cost them twenty million, twenty-fiv-e million, thirty million, any sum at all. They have got to win.\ The Republicans wanted contributions from the rich and from the poor, the speaker said, but no man would be al- lowed to contribute more than J 1.000. Referring to Chairman Hays of the national committee, Col. Thompson ' : I can think of no better worK for any man to do these dayB than to up- hold. tl)o hands of that vjrlle. energetic, tireless and resourcetul fighting man from Indiana.\ TO ORGANIZE JOHNSON CLUB.

To the Repub lican party Is left the task of repairing the entire machinery of tho Government, Nicholas Murray Butlor of 'Columbia University, the principal speaker at the annual celebration ot the unnt-versa- of the birth of William McKln-le- y, told members of tho Tippecanoe Club of Cleveland. In his address he picked apart the Administration and hold the pieces un for ridicule nnd criticism. He ended with a ringing ap- peal to the youth of America to \come over Into a camp whose army of occu- pation Is dedicated to liberty, to order, to law, to Justice nnd to freedom.\ It Is left for the Republican party to show genuine progress In dealing with the problems that confront the country, Dr. Butler declared. He expressed his confidence that tho organization Is ca- pable of doing Just this. Taking up the International situation, first he said: \By frank and fair deal- ing and by maintaining our traditional policy of urging the substitution ofjaw for force In the settlement of Interna- tional differences, we must repair the damage that has been done by the gravn blunders and the purely rhetorical diplomacy of the .present Administra- tion. We must regain the confidence ot other nations In our common sense and In our regard for the real facts of and International lite. We must come down from the clouds and walk on the earth. No Adventure lu Socialism. \Whatever form the society of nations may take, America's part In it must ba that ot an Independent, self controlled and cooperating equal.

Tho American people are ready to act with broad mlndedness, with sympathy and with generosity in helping their sister nations and In maintaining tho peace ot tho world.

Their solution In volves a large Increase lu productive In dustry under Jut and humane condi tions, greater economy nnd thrift, a steady contraction of our overexpanded credit system, a drastic reform in our methods of taxation, the development of a policy of cooperation rather than of antagonism between Government nnd business and a quick reduction In the amount ot public expenditures.
