With Some Mention of Haeckel, Buddhism and Religious Tolerance. To the Kilitor of The Tribune. Bin The ridiculous arguments of your correspondent. Mr. James F. Roll ly, might easily be left unanswered, since they only repeat what has been said and refuted a hundred times be? fore. But I strongly object to the abuse which this gentleman makes of such wordg a? Science. Truth a' on. and therefore I shall take the pains here to refute his statements. He begins by asking whether the doctrines of hell and heaven, etc.. lead to ignorant prac: 'he gentle? man ever heard of the thousands who, on ?he basis of these doctrines, have been burned at the stake and subjected to torments unspeakable by his Church at the time of the Inquisition'.' He asks: "Are the several hundred million Christians all benighted indi? viduals?" 1 ?vi<h to ask in turn: Are those thousands of millions who jiever heard of Christianity, as. ?"or example. the Japanese, with their wonderfully reiined civilisation, the Buddhist?, with their conception of life a thou? sand times higher 'lian Christianity ever understood it. benighted iad nais? in his ignorance, probably they are. Furthermore, he says that Haeckel "forged the photographic plates of the anthropoid ape in order to bolster ud this ,,p; theory" ind "loot his position in a Cern?an University." Will the gentleman kindly inform me where he n formation and when Mr. Haeckel lost his position at a German university? I surely would be much obliged to him, as I heard HaecV "i? lectures at. the University of Jena about ten years ago, having at h? ? ?.st intelligi rat and earnest stu? dents of all pari s of the world. "Dogmas are nothing more nor less than fixed religious truths." To begin ?v ?'ii. i ,,'?.?,..-' i-, the !> rn truth." A thing is either true or it is not true, bu' it is not politically true, or economically true, or iously true: and, besides, if his ment that dogmas are : id religious truths '. reallv admissible, do mean the dogma . one of, the religion? that are running loose in this world, or does he want to say that only he ha-' the truth? Of course, such an absolutely un foundod statement as that "th" no morality without dogma" can only anpeal to the utter! The ation of Rome and Gi*eeea never knew what a dogma was, and there was no question of religious tol? erance in the ?? . era. If I bar? read history right, the moral standard of an old Athenian or a Ro? ma'? Wa? a* least as high as that of our noble contemporaries. "1 he nrinciples of conduct, if decent, have th -ir origin in roenled truth" is of course plain rubbish, bud such an Ofl can only be made by a man who disregards anything '.hat has hap bei'ore ?! -vented the inonotheiatic idea. ??|>oe? scientific knowledge nac ?,ke n man honest, merciful. clean-minded? I think not." Poe* the fact that he is educated in ?he an religion make a man honest, ful, clean-nun led? 1 am ? ure il dm i not. SIEG1 RIED JAI 0B880HN. New York, June IV!. 1914. BAND OR ORCHESTRA?

SOCIALISTIC PROPAGANDA It Meets with One Reader s Scornful Criticism. To the Editor of The Tribune. Those who publich express opinions on socialism, pro or con, and particularly those protagonists that seek to be regarded as highly total lectual. not to say engaging, pessimist am!, therefore, especially fitted for making conclusive statements in re!s tion to it. would be serving their queer half-baked doctrines much more | bly by first learnin?? to distinguish the different brands of socialism, . evidently, they do not compre hend.
