Though the bicycle school has nearly driven Its
rival, the riding academy, to the wall, the circus
going public still head? Its thirty-nine articles with
?bo truism "The horse is a noble animal." The
beauty and grace of horse? and hors??manehip. which
includes horsewomanshlp. Is never shown to hetter
advantage than In high-school riding, or "Haute
K'-ole Equestrianism." as that genteel linguist, the
circus programme, puts it. This year th': three
rings at Madison Square Carden all have their ex- j
emplars of this art. John O'Hrler. and Miss Pauline
Newsome occupy the attention of the crowds at
either end of the Garden during the high-echool act, ?
but the star position of the centre ring Is i;iven to I

though she do?'s not brag about It. she Is never;he- I

with one of noble lineage. Still her prouder title is
"Premier Horsewoman of the World." and she takes
mere pride in her eejueatrtns teats In the. arena of
Bftrnum * Bailey than ?he does In her titled spoitae.
The Countess was not born a woman of rank, al?
though her Xu'.her was a man of some promlncne?;

tastes, which h?-r parent? permitted her to gratify In

"SPIRITI A L ???????ERS."
Claude Falls Wright lectured on "Spiritual Mes?
sengers" yesterday in Chlckerlng Hall. Flfth-ave.
and Elghteenth-st. He told of the work, mission
end methods of the messengers. He said the mean?
ing of the word Mahatma was greatly misunder?
stood and generally used In a wrong ?en?e. In In?
dia where the proper meaning was applied to the
word, It meant great ?oui?a soul that had passed
through an ordeal of worldly suffering and had
not come back to earth.
In the case of spiritual messengers they were souls
that had undergone the Buffering experiences of
worldly life and having the choice of passing on to
a higher plane to reap the pleasant fruits of past
travail or returning to the suffering of the world,
chose the latter for the love of humanity. There
were a? many as fortv-eight such messengers, or
Christ?. He belleV'-d that Mme. Blavatsky and the
late William Q. Judge wer?; of that character.
Kvery Nation has had such a spiritual messenger;
every ?and and every little island wa? visited by
such messengers. They brought truth and spread it
among mankind. Of such had been Zoroaster,
Buddha and Christ.

A BELT UNE IN XLW-JEIiSEY
PROPOSED C 'iNNKCTluN WITH
vurarg or ssusTOs mai aw- a way to save
THE COST OS UOHTklHAUE.
Erastus Wlman, in the course of a speech at the
recent hearing before Mayor Strong on the question
of the Greater New-York bill, made an Interesting
suggestion. He declared that an outer belt line rail?
road through New-Jersey. Intersecting nil trunk
linen terminating In Jersey City, would greatly
lessen ltghteraev and reduce the cost of transfer
.11 the harbor, with the consequence that New-York
would be able more successfully to compete with
other ports which thrive at the expense of this city.
THF ARTHUR KILL BRIDGE.
Speaking of his plan yesterday le a Tribune re?
porter. Mr. Wlmar. said: "The Idea of an outer
belt Kno was the principal motive that prompted
the proposal, now fulfilled, of the great railroad
bridge across the stream known as the Arthur Kill.
That bridge, how? ver, up to this time, has n.-ver
fulfilled Ita complete purpose, having been exclu?
sively occupied by the traffic of the Htltlmore ?nd
Ohio Railroad, which acquired from me Its contro:.
Because it belonged to one trunk line, and beesuSi
there was no leal effort to Induce the diversion of
the freight from other linee, there ha? up to this
time been no general use made of this area! artery
of commerce. Cader the provisions of the law. how?
ever, all the roads can use It. and the proposal now
is to bring its services Into general use. This bridge
will permit, accese, by the ten great railway lines
?rest of the Hudson, to Staten island, and these
additional terminals wmiII prove of Immense ad
vantas" to N-w-York ln point of receiving and
THI PROJECTED RAIUROAD.
"My proposal provides for the construction of a
br-lt line, or switching road, from the Weal Shore
road, say at Little Kerry ?tatlon, right aerosa New
Jersey to the Stateti Island Sound, and, thence, by a
new electric road to deep water In the harbor. This
outer belt line In Jersey City would Intersect the
West Shore. Susquehanna ard Western, Ontario and
Western. Erie, Pennsylvania, Lehlgh Valley, Haiti
more and Ohio, Jersey Central, and Reading road?.
It would be difficult to Imagine a group of Instru
mentalltife in c immeroe saving a wider ?weep than
these great systems of Intercommunication. Yer.
under existing conditions, they all terminate in a
confined space In Jersey City, s.i confined. In fa-'t.
that it can contain only one or two days' receipts
from these lines, and In order to be relieved a trib?
ute must be exacted, ln the ehape of lighterage
VALUE OP STATEN ISLAND TERMINALS.
"It in to reduce this lighterage, if not entirely to
elim'nate It. that Ihe outer belt line has been pro?
jected, and fo relieve the eongeatlofl a: the crowded
term.naU of Jersey City that the plan Is now pro?
posed to deflect loaded car?, and even whol? trains,
to the Staten Island shore, where, within the har?
bor, with deep water and .the gr<atest e onomy,
th? three gr?-at parpasen of a terminal can be simul?
taneously aorvod, namely, receipt, storage an 1 ship?
ment. The separation of these three .-?sentisi? to
the che-ap handling of freight Is the disability which
pia? ?-s New-York at a dieadvantage ?o great ??
against other poru?. where, as In Boston, Baltimore,
Newport New?. Norfolk. New-Orleans and Oalvee
ton, all these are done at one and the same time,
ln New-York llarl?or we receive in Jersey City, are
store in Brooklyn and we ?hip in New-York It
would he impossible to con-rive of an arrangement
more e istly. more inconvenient and less likely U
be succeeeful as against other ports.
'Commerce In competition with other piares can?
not be maintained where a tributo equal to JlO.On?/ieo
annually Is exacted for the cost of transfer, which
,s not noreeaary in other places. Shipper?, miller?.
farmers an?! distributers will not pay tliLa money
every year, when by going to Newport Newe and
other pla'-e? this expon.?" can b.? saved. Tho cost
of lighterage to th? pointe of receipt in Jersey City
and upper New-York to tho point of storage in
Brooklyn, ani from the point of euch storage to the
point of shlpmem is a ? 11 ! deal n...r?? than ??,???,?
000, and I arn of opini? ? that a \ ? ry large propor?
tion of thle sum would be saved If receipt.??,, ?toras?
and shipments were mad< ? eslbls on Staten Island.
"In order that New?York may retain her commer?
cial supremacy, two thine? aro necessary. The first
is the development ?>f ? -ana! traffic, so an h form a
cheap all-water route for I ??> ?stuff.-, and, second, a
rail freight ti rea-h ? portion of the harbor wh??.?
economy In the cost ?>' trans.', r la pisside. The
Ststen Island shore has thw advantage, and by
means of the out'T belt Un?-, now projected, all the
railroad? west of the Hudson would have neceas t?
this shore. Upon th!.? western shore of th?? harbor,
now that the pier ar.d bulkhead line establish? d by
Congres? ani the Legislature affords ampie water
an') wl le ?paces, it Is int?nded to build ;h<? beol
leai of terminals, J'iere- 1,000 f^et ? uig by B0 wide
Will invite shipping of the largest ?las?; fire-proof
wareh luses, equipped with ?-lei trie traction and
hoisting apparatua, and grain elevators, after th??
latest pattern, costing 20 cents p.t bushel, Bl
against 11 per bushel now, all built on land costing
C'/i pr,r running foot, as against fdiVi? per foot In
Inaccessible Brooklyn, and t"n times an much In
crowded New-York or Jersey City, are some of the
advantage? that will wei^h with the people who pay
the freight and who won't pay lighterage If they
can help it."

"The significance of Lincoln's picture here," ?aid

IX THE 80LDIER3' HOMES.
HOW THE GOVERNMENT PROVIDES POR
INSrrCTOn-aENERAL BRECKINRIDOE REPORTS ON
THE CONDITION AND NEEDS OF
[BT TELEORAPH TO THB TRIBUNS. 1
Washington, April 11.?The annual report of the In?
spector-General of the Army relating to the Na?
tional Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, which
has been printed, contains information of Interest
In relation to the condition and needs of the home?.
Oeneral Brecklnrldge says that the amount appro?
priated for the support of the homes was ?2.324.473
during the la?t fiscal year. Of this sum $87.600 was
for special construction, and 12.236.873 for the current
maintenance of the homes. To this latter sum was
added by transfer from Ite late posthumous funi
J123.05S 74, ami from sales ?.nd other sources till.?
526 41. making a total of 12,171,45815 available for
maintenance, exclusive of the amount appropriate!
for special construction. From thla general appropri?
ation there was expanded to September 30. 1893. the
sum of $2,209.118 01. and from the special appropria?
tions 178.820 39, leaving a balance unexpended In the
gen<nl fund of $202.34014, and in the special fund
$8,779 61, a total of $271.119 75. To this balance may be
added $29.173 89, the amount of the late poathumou?
fund transferred to the general fund by the act of
August IX, 1891, In excess of the sum designated by
that act as available for disbursement. Of this un?
expended baiane??, three months aft.-r the close of
the fiscal year. $59,148 09 BIBSlBSd In the Treasmy
undrawn. $70,733 23 was In proc?s? of being covered
into the Treasury, and $170.412 32 was In the hands of
disbursing officers. Since that ilate $81.4/5 83 has
been covered Into the Treasury, leaving $86.006 49 yet
to be accounted for.
For the fiscal year UM no special appropriation?
were made, and the amount appropriate 1 for sup?
port of the homes was $'.',378.563 89. The net dlsburss
ment from this appropriation was $2.206.206 87. The
SVeragS number present during that year w.-.s re?
port?-1 as G..Oil, making the ost per capka on the
net disbursement $14141. For the fiscal year 1835
the amount appropriated, l??s special construction,
not Including the amounts received from the po?
tBtteseas fund, was $J..'36,S73. and the net dlsbur?e
ment? therefrom for maintenance were $_'.!22,4?'3. or
? per capita c ist of $128 73 on a reported ?vera?
piantai of 16.480. This is a reduction, of 112 63 per
espita from last y?ar. and on the basts of the aver?
age number present show? a saving of $2'* 141 40. If
th? sapeadlteres fer th?? post rmd were r.msiw?i.
these figures would be chancel, but whatever the
meiho.l of calculation the Interest woull probably
prove cumulative through a COUrsS of years, an.l
furth?r on In this report the figure? are given sc
c>r ling to the local calculation.
The exhibit for the year Is gratifying. Oeneral
BreeklnrtdgS says, as it ?hows that notwithstand?
ing the deer? iStd appropriations from those of the
pr?trises year for maintenance and the large in?
crease In populStloa, S caasMsrSBl? surplus re?
mains, probably over $111.000. exclusive of th* ?ntlr??
amount transferred] from the posthumous fund of
Mil. mUSO, and a surales from poathumou?
sources for th's yar of $24,Ml 42. and a balance of
$>,77!> 61 from sp? il construction appropri??
In all about J :???.??".?. This mav he reduced by the
settlement of some f ? w outstanding accounts.
TH.: NUMBER CARED y>n.
The report shows that the average number car?d
fot during the last year wa? 16.477, which nearly
eguale the combined ?trength of the infantry and
artillery of the Army. Adding to thl? the av?ra*?
number of members constantly absent for longer
or shorter period?, the total average number pre?
? Bl and absent reaches BgJU The maximum pres?
ent durili?; the >?ar was 17.425. ?nd the minimum
14.057. There ?? a constant Increase in the number
of needy, disabled and worthy old ?old:ers cared
for During the last six y?ars It has avera?ed 702
annuali?, and last year this average was exceeded
bv e'shty-slx The Increase 1? limited only by the
capacity of th? Institutions for sheltering and the
