Although thinking is considered
to be nu essential characteristic of
the human species, men who really
think arc rare. They constitute
but n small quantity of U16 mass of
people. Anyhow, thinking men
arc not so numerous nor so fre

grees, etc. l lie rest 01 numamty
I leave their thinking to others, fol
I lowing like a herd ol sheep. They
I stick to any established fnith, the
ory or dogma duly set lortli and
promulgated, provided it frees them
from the necessity of any indepen
dent mental exertion. And, strange
to say, the more incredible the the
ory the easier it finds followers.
You may easily convince the peo
ple that a locomotive, ground into
powder and scattered to the four
winds, is still capable of pulling a
railroad train, but you will meet a

If the masses, including the titled,
decorated, jich and professional men
do not think what do they do? Like
our quadruped ancestors they look
for grass, for prey, for food. Their
attention is so intensely absorbed
with questions of fodder and wealth
and "success" that there is no time
left for thinking. Like those dis
tant ancestors, theycontinually keep
their heads turned down to the
mother ground the resource of all
food till their necks get stiff and
fixed forever. A man may wallow
in wealth aud the question of food
may be settled already for the whole
of his posterity, but the stiff neck,
directed to what they call "busi
ness," prevents him from glancing
at the heavens, from seeing the dis
tant horizons the real world of
man. They still look for grass for
more gras. Like strayed cattle,
they have no definite aim in life, no
beacon, no principles. They turn
to the right or left, forward or back
ward, ignoring the compass needle
altogether, and are governed exclu
sively by the sight of a green tuft
of grass or of an attractive bush
sticking from behind the rock. They
call it "business," aud theirmethods
"business methods." They con
temptuously look upon men whose
aspirations go beyond the search of
fodder, and call them cranks, im
practical dreamers, utopists. Rely
ing upon wealth and power, accum
ulated by themselves aud their an
cestors, taking advantage of the fix
edness and narrowness of their pur
poses, lining them as a diamond
drill, they claim to rule aud govern
communities, states, nations, to
guide the world from behind shop
counters "on business principles,"
as if the whole universe were based
on the system of double-entry book
keeping. The idea that other things
besides fodder may be necessary to
run the world never strikes the
minds of unthinking men for the
simple reason that they have no
conception of anything else. Poor
human-looking things, indeed!
But let us turn to the thinking
minority. It may be divided into
two types, according to the diver
gent habits of mind. The first, a
very predominant one, never looks
into the future; does not take any
stock in it. Tue future appears to
them as n sort of a blank, on which,
when the time comes, the past will
write its decrees. Their eyes are
turned backward to this very past,

They most consistently condemn
the thing that is only seeking to
establish itself. Such is the mind
of a trained lawyer.
The second, which is a more
modern nnd much less abundant
type, thinks constantly and by
preference concerning things to
come. It is constructive in habit;
it interprets the things of the pres
ent and gives value to this or that,
entirely in relation to things de
signed or foreseen. This is a mas
terly type, because it perpetually
attacks nnd alters the existing, es
tablished order of things, and is
perpetually falling away from the
respect of traditions and established
institutions of the past. For him
the past is dead, aud he lets the
dead bury their dead. It sees the
world as n great workshop, and the
present ns merely material for the
future for the thing that is yet
destined to be, which, by the way,
is the only one worthy of interest.
This type is in the active mood of
thought, while the former is in the
passive. It is the mind of the in
ventor, the architect, the mind of
youth the mind especially manl
iest among western nations; while
the former is the mind of age, the
mind of the Oriental. Prometheus
confronted with Confucius !
It is not sufficiently recognized
how different in consequences these
two methods are. The time we live
in is the time of an extraordinary
uncertainty and of indecision upon
endless questions moral, economi
cal, political and religious. A very
large amount of this uncertainty,
which makes all of us feel miserable.
is due to the fact that with most of
us, these insufficiently distinguished
ways of looking at things are not
only present together; but in actual
conflict, in our minds.
It is not difficult to perceive
where the essential difference be
tween these two methods of think
ing originates. In the unbroken
ciain of events, evolving from each
other as cause and effect, in strict
conformity with the supreme nat
ural law of causality a new revolt
ing link arises, i. e., human con
sciousness, human thought, human
will and purpose. As soon as born,
it refuses to take things as they are
or would be, if left to themselves.
It finds them uncomfortable and in
consistent with human welfare and
human interests. It gives the pro
cess of causality a twist and to the
events a new direction more in ac
cordance with human purposes. Is
that right or wrong?
The question is: Shall man re
duce his part in nature and history
to the condition of a billiard ball,
obeying blindly natural forces act
ing upon him, as did his ancestors,
following the process of natural
evolution together with the rest of
the animal world; or shall he assert
his rights aud powers over nature,
the rights of a thinking being to
liberty, to self-determination. Shall
he master these forces, these laws
and that of evolution, taking his
destinies into his own hands and
shaping his future as suits him best?
Kvents that now take place in
Russia are of greater magnitude
than the most of us suspect. They
represent but the starting, initial
point wherefrom the flood will over
run the world, as in 1793. It is
like the eruption of Krakatoa, that
caused the tidal wave to encircle
the globe, that filled the atmosphere
with volcanic dust and enabled us
to witness those marvelous purple
sunsets all over the earth. It simply
signifies that the human race has
broken camp and has started on the
Hut where? Backwards or for
wards? What will be the new
moorings? Who is right and who
is wrong? Who will win and who
will lose in the above dispute, Con
fucius or Prometheus?
This is the fundamental question
now before the Russian people and
before the whole world.
I will analyze this question in the
next issue, so far as Russia is con
cerned, from both points of view,
from that of past traditions and of
Heginning with this issue the
Tkiiiunh will print n scries of ar
ticles from the pen of Dr. Nicholas
Russel, hearing on the Russian
question from the aspect of a Rus
sian. Dr. Russel was born at Mo
hiless, Russia, but being more or
less a philosopher and a free thinker,
he was banished from the country
aud came to the United States, No
man in Hawaii is better prepared
to speak intelligently on the condi
tion of the Russian people and the
trend of national politics. Kd.

What has become of the flower of
the Russian commanding officers?
Of twenty-eight men of the rank
of general, with whose name
the war has made us familiar, more
than half are now out of action. Of
fifteen admirals, three have been
killed, four are recalled in disgrace,
and four are prisoners of the Japan
ese. The remaining four are al
most of as little account. One,
Admiral Jassen, commands the
sole remnant of the Russian Pacific
fleet at Vladivostok, and the other
three arc loitering about at sea
with the various sections of the dis
credited Hnltic fleet. The follow
ing list shows what hai happened
to twenty-eight generals and fout
teen adihirals since the beginning
of the war:
Stoessel Prisoner on parole.
Oripenberg Recalled in disgrace.
Orloff Recalled in disgrace.
Trusoff Recalled in disgrace.

So far as can be ascertained, the
Japanese have lost but one officer of
the rank of general, killed in the
action at Port Arthur, and two of
the rank of admiral, both of whom
were drowned in the sinking of the
battleship Hatsuse. Not one has
been captured by the Russians,
and none have been recalled.
