By Leased Wire to Tho Tribune.
NICW YORK,' Feb. IS. Indicating that
a criminal Investigation will solve the
mystery of Dorothy Arnold's disappear
unce, Jior aj;ed father today laid bare
tho story of tho girl's Ufa before District
Attorney Whitman. .
Mr. Arnold collapsed before be reached
Uif climax of the statement, but he as
sured tho district attorney he would sub
mit convincing evidence thatvjils daugh
ter Is dead. uiuJi.tliaUilea.th wnh not due
to natural caviscis.
"I havo believed from the first that
Dorothy was dead," said Francis R. Ar
nold. "I told Mr. "Whitman all 1 knew.
Th'-ro have been recent developments,
uml I gave him all tho clews I posscsn."
Coupled with a statement given out to
day by the superintendent of the Samari
tan hospital In Philadelphia that a. young
woman bearing a oloso resemblance- to
the missing irl had been a patient there
for a week beginning December 13, the
visit of Mr. Arnold to tho home of the
district attorney was taken to mean
that there bad been an Important devel
opment in tho case.
After tho conference It was admitted
by both Mr. Arnold and the district at
tornev that the county officials may bo
called" on to take charge or the investiga
tion Into the girl's disappearance. In
his talk Mr. Arnold made no effort to
conceal anything which he believed
would throw light on tho mystery. Things
he told so affected Mr. Arnold that lie
was unable to go on with his story.
"Dorolhv Is dead. It Is cruel the way
this case has been misinterpreted." said
Mr. Arnold when ho left the district at
torney. . , ,
"Wc are Ignorant of the manner of her
tlnath but hope that recent developments
and new Information that have been
bronchi lo us may clear up the mystery."

Cardinal Gibbons Snms Up the
Philosophy of the Great
NOTES THE DOGMAS,
BUT SEES NO PROOFS
Nothing to Back Up Assertion
of Existence of Intelligence
By Leased Wire lo The Tribune.
XEW YOKK. Feb. 18. "T cannot
place "Edison. He is not a materialist.
Neither is ho an idealist, a monostic,
agnostic or pantheist, T do not know
what school claims him. He dogma
tizes on his own account."
That was the best Cardinal Gibbous
said ho could do in an interview
printed here totlaj-, in summhif; up the
philosophy of Thomas A. Edison, the
inventor, in the latter !s denial of im
mortality. Tho cardinal said he had read the
celebrated interview that had stirrod
up the religious world "carefully, very
carefully," and tho cardinal added that
ho regretted that the inventor had
given such views to tho public. Thou
hc started in to dissect, those views
of tho inventor in his usual straight
"In tho first place," the cardinal
aid, "I admire Mr. Edison's genius.
Some belittle him as a mere mechanic.
I havo no patience with such a view,
for no man could achieve what Mr.
Edison has without extraordinary men
tal powers. He is the representative
of American inventive genius and. 1ms
brought glory upon our country. Eo
is in truth' "a marvel, and as woll a
great benefactor of the race. Ho haH
been intensely devoted to his own pur
suits and he lias paid the ponalty, just
as Darwin did, just as so man- of our
jirc.at meu do."
Tho cardinal did not find Edison
"Not in the least, ho is shiningly
dogmatic." said the carcHnnl.'- Asser-1
tion, assertion everywhere. The proofs?
Ho does not offer any. Such a .pro
cedure is not expected of an eminont
scientist. It is expected, indeed, of a
pope, for it Is a pope's office to decide
and define, while he lcavos it lo theo
logians to discuss and prove. Even the
pope does not dogmatize until tho ques
tion had been discussed for centuries
and settled by the voice of experts.
But here is a scientist who preclaiius
dogmas to tho public; and he seems to
ask us to believe them becauso ho
believes them. Tf he spoke at the
head of a school he might refor us
to their arguments; but I do uot kuow
for whom he speaks. Not for tho ma
terialists, because ho believes matter
cannot explain all; not for the idealists,
because he believes in matter; not for
the monoists evidently; not for the ag
nostics, for ho acknowledges a supreme
intelligence; not for tho pantheists, so
far at least as he reveals his mind. In
fact. 7 cannot placo Mr. Edison. T do
not know any school that would claim
him. All I enn bo sure of is, that ho
dogmatizes on his own account.
"Mr. Edison's real view seems to
be that a man's intelligence is com
posed of tho combined intelligence of
his brain cells- But how does Mr.
Edison know that a man's intelligence
is mado up of the combined intelligence
of brain cells? Ife claims, to have
reached his conclusions through tho
study of hard facts; we wish, in scien
tific fashion, he had given his facts
to the world before his conclusion.
"The facts arc these at least until
Mr. Edison produces now facts, as yet
unknown to the sciontilic world; no one
knows anything about the existence of
an intelligence cell. No proof, not the
slightest, ever has boon advanced to
show intelligence in a brain-coll. So
far as science knows, there is no more
proof of the existence of intelligence
in a brain coll than there is. in tho cells
of a potato or in tho molecules of tho
matter that mako up this paper. Wo
do not know there is a connection be
tween the brain and tho mind, that
the mind thinks through tho acts of
tho brain, as it sees through aid of tho
nerves of lho eye; but that does not
prove the brain 'thinks any more than
it provos tho nerves of the eye pee.
No more than ever it would prove that
the strings of a violin enjoy their own
music. ' . .
"Mr. Edison speaks of hip, 'investi
gations' into the soul; he seems to havo
looked for it with a microscope. St.
Paul was a true philosopher: for what
kuoweth the things of a man, save tho
spirit of man that is in him? It is
only searching into our .conscious
ness that the spirit of mind or soul can
In conclusion Cardinal Gibbons said
ho is clad of one thing, and that is
that Mr. Edison recognizes the exist
ence of a supreme intelligence.
"To mo," ho said, "the whole world
teatifios this, and I cannot understand
how any mnn today enn conceive of
this world as the result of blind forces.
Mr, Edison sees supreme inlclligonco
directing tho formation of tho human
Ca" Mechanism alone, ho says, cannot
explain this world; only supreme intel
ligence could produce it, rulo it. and
bring it to its perfection. There is ono
point I can hardly understand. Mr.
Edison ad in its a supreme intelligence
with the will and power to direct the
forces of nature. Philosophers, T be
lieve, would call such a being a person,

NEW YOItlC. Feb. IS. In the opinion
of many well-informed railroad men. the
passage of control of tho Missouri Pa

be followed by the establishment of a

New York lo San Francisco, with
branches grldlronlng the middle and

believed. Is likely lo find Its eastern out

such a transcontinental route as has
been discussed by leading railroad Inter
ests off and on for years past may at

In other words, control of the Missouri
Pnclflc curries, with II directly or In
directly potential eonliol of four other
Gould lines, and all that is required to
make a complete ocean-to-ocean route
would be the Erie railroad. There Is.
Indeed, considerable doubt as to whether

tho Erie, and It Is thought more prob
able that Instead of absolute merger

WASHINGTON", Feb. IS. Tho de
bate on the omnibus bill, after a two
days' filibuster, was in progress in the
house at 2 o'clock this morning'.
Speeches were being made on both
sides. Many members wero dozing in
tho cloak rooms and lobbies. About
a hundred spectators lingered iu Hie

motion of Mr. Manu to strike out all
after tho enacting clause" in that bill
which had provided for the French
spoliation claims. Adoption of this
motion had the effect of eliminating
the measure as a senate bill.
It left it as the house, bill without,

speeches in which a warning finger was
pointed to t ho next national election,

Teachings of several members of the j i j

of the chair of psychology of the B. J

of the department of biology of the I 'j
B. Y. U. Other members of tho fac- 2
ullv arc said to have taken a similar (
stand to that of these three professors, f ;i
and it is possible that others may be a jj

Object to Darwinian Theory. ;
Dr. Chamberlain received his doc- ;
tor's degree at Cornell. He taught bi- J
ologv for four yours at the University ; 3
of Utah and or three years at the : g
Brigham Young university. Ho teaches 2
the Darwinian theory ol evolution in a
his Instructions in biology, aud ever
since he has boon a member of tho ' S
faculty of the church school his posi- 1 j
tion as an evolutionist has been the J !
object of attack for many of the prom- s
inent Mormons, although until recently .V J
no marked opposition to his. teachings
has become evident. k i
Ju addition to tho other branches V
taught by them, the Professors Peter- : a
son, who are brothers, also havo coursos j '
in theology at the Brigham Young uni- ' j
versity. In these courses, it is charged, j
the brothers injected higher criticism, I
and thoir instructions have been con- jj
strued by some as a direct attack .on ?
tho doctrines of tho Mormon church. ij i,
Dr. Henry Peterson studied at tho
University 6f Chicago and took a post- j j
graduato course and received a doctor's '; 9
degree at. Harvard. Prof, .loscph Peter- ?
son received a master's degree at the ; f.
University- of Chicago. All three of , ij
the professors under indictment, bv rho js
church were originally membors of tho j H
Mormon church and,' it is understood, 1 f
are still considered as members pro- j ij
grossivc members of the church. J i
Although there has been dissension 1 jj
in tho air for several months as tho re- .1
suit of the instruction at tho B.. Y. U. Jj
declared to bo at variance with the m,
teachings of the Mormon church, the fl
matter was not brought to n head until

Apostle C. W. Penrose wero the prin- i
