In the lecture e"ferday mornlns Mr. Leidbcater cald. In Dirt "Theosophical teaching on the subject of the un"cen world Is very much mort. precipe ana aenmie than that which we usually receive from current religious teaching In England and America. We hold that there is an unseen world, and that it is around us here and now, and not far away from us. and that it remains un seen slmrlj because most of us have not jet developed the senso by which It can be perceived, that for those who have de veloped these senses the world Is not un seen and not unknown, but Is entirely within reach, and can be explored and investigated as may be desired, precisely as any country here on earth might be If oniy me posiD:mies or human conscious ness were more fully develoDed. "Now. if a man can learn to uso this liner matter within himself, and to ob tain vibrations through it Instead of only through the denser matter, then he r.in respond to impacts -omlng from the worm oi nner rcauer w:"-out him, and so become conscious of much that la at pres ent hidden from his ejes. The power to do this Is latent in every man. but only a few as let have developed it." Last night the subject "Life After jjeam was taicen up, on wnich Mr. Lead beater said. In part: "Wo usually give far too much thought to death, but the teaching of Theoxphy enables us to v'lew It In Its true propor tions, simply as a passage from one stage of life to another stage. The old classical saying. 'Mors janua vitae' ('death is the gate of life'). Is literally true, for that Is exactly what It is a gate Into a fuller and higher life. We must realize that on the other side of the grave, as well ai on this, the same great eternal law of divine Justice still prevails, and that we can trust as Implicitly there as here to the ac tion of that law with regard both to our selves and to those whom we love. "If we believe at all In a God who Is a loving Father (and no one who has tho sight of the higher planes of nature can for an Instant doubt this), wo must realize that a fate which, like death, comes to all alike, cannot have In It aught of evil for an), and that whether we are In this world or the next we must be equally safe in his hands " Unlike Any Other!

Purchase of 85.00(1 Shares of Wn bash Preferred Stock by JJLv sotiri Pacific Co. Occasions Considerable Speculation. The statement made by George Gould to the stockholders of the Missouri Pa cific in regard to t lie Missouri Pacific Company having depmed It advisable to purcha&e a large amount of Wabash se curities has occasioned considerable com ment both in railway and financial circles. In the statement of the investment in scuritics held bv the Missouri Pacific Hallway Compan) It is shown that the company owns 53,XX) share" of Wabash preferred stock and 5,CJ of Us debenture bonds. Of the preferred stock, 20.009 shares are held bv the Missouri Pacific, while the remaining 65.000 shares have been pur chased by the Iron Mountain The bonds. It is stated, are owned by the Iron Moun tain and deposited as security for issue of unlfjing or refunding bonds. The Wabash has authorized a preferred stock issue of 140 Oj0 shares, which in a, measure proves Mr Goulds statement that v hile the purchase has rot been sinhcltnt for the Mis-wjuri 1 jc IK to itintrol the railroad it will be enabled in future to have protection. In Mr Gould s statement he naturallv does not speak of the holdings of the Gould familv in the Wabash securities wnich it in uelicvej witn itii nuidiii-:- i the Mi"ourI Pacific, will give him abso lute control hlio ll ha" lwen knnun for some lim that the MNsourl Pacific was making extensive purchd'-.'-, of .iba-h pref-r ed the ex.ict limensions of the purchase have been a trifle vague V statement wnicii nas been received with considerable credence U 'hat Ooul'J contemplates forming a holding company for all of his lines and K slowly inifr wt.ivinj the financ'al interests of In? lines in such a manner as to make them mutual dependent. In proof of this manj point to the ac knowledged effort being made to consol idate all of the Gould lints east of J-Mtts-burg under one management both Jlnan cial and operative Counsel for the Gould lircs have been vorking upon this proposition for many months and it is believed that within a lew months an announcement will be made of the consolidation after which the lines between Pittsburg and the Missis sippi River, to be followed, upon the con summation of this with an attempt to consolidate all the lints west of the Mis sissippi Man) believe that much depends upon the decision in the Northern S-uriiics case as to how- far Mr Gould will at tempt to carrj out his plan of consolida tion, as in man) sections of the country he has lines which the consolidation w u!d conflict with the law if the Supreme Couit decides against the Northern Securities Companj Oil the other hand. It Is argued, that the consolidation or merger of the Wabash and the Missouri Pacific would not conflict with a law forbidding mergers of parallel lines save to a limited extent in the Kan sas City and St Louis traffic. Expert railway officials are. as a rule, ridiculing the merger proposition of the Missouri Pacific and S abash, and confi dently assert that there are only two rea sons why the Missouri Pacific and Iron Mountain purchased the Wabash stock in such large quantities. One of these is as Mr. Gould stated, to protect the Gould interests from the dan ger of an Eastern line securing the con trol, and the other is the practical adop tion of Traffic Director A. C. gird's plan of harmonv of Interest. Before Mr. Bird took charge of the Gould lines it was well known that har monv of Interest was somewhat lacking, and all of the officials did not work to gether for a common purpose the success of the Gould sv stems but since he has been In his present position, a little more than a ear, many changes have been made, and it Is generallj believed that he Induced the purchase of the Wabaih stock not onlv as a protective measure, but also ns a means b vv hlch the success of the Wabash cculd be of benefit to the. Missouri Pacific a step further than furthering traffic relations, which he has been pushing vigorously. unTTnn railrod methods. Remarkable Result Achieved la Limt Four Years. The railroads of the United States did the greatest business In their history last 5 ear, and probably a larger etos busi ness than they will do for some period at least. The gros earnings on the lines which have so far reported, a little more than three-quarters of the mileage of the country, increased over 1S02 li02 per cent. J1S6.021.63S. the expenditures were aug mented 13 15 per cent, J137.321.US5, and toe net earnings Increased 9 07 per cent, J1S, 703,553. The full figures will show some what better than this. Their significance can only bo understood by a comparison with the lean period of seven or eight 3 ears ago. The railroads of the country did not re cuperate immediately after the presiden tial election of 1SSS, which gave the coun ty's trade and Industries an immediate and remarkable Impetus. Both gross and net earnings increased In 1S7 and liS8 moderately, but the railroads were not In a position at that time to obtain the great est advantages from the largely Increased traffic and from the turn of the nation from the depths of trade depression to prosperity. The railroad situation as It was at that time was succinctly stated by President A. J. Cassatt, who had recently assumed the presidency of the Pennsylvania Railroid Company. He announced his policy, which resulted In the communlty-of-inter-est plan, and the adoption of other har monious methods by the leading railroad systems of the country. The reduction in freight rates had reached the danger point. Mr. Cassatt said in his annual report "The only alternative Is to arrest the re rlnetlnn in revenue, which has been larzclv brought about by apparently uncontrollable conflicts Detween ine railway companies and between rival communities. It must be admitted that the situation is compli cated The problems Involved In dealing with traffic questions covering so vast a territory and affecting so many diversi fied Interests are troublesome and intri cate, but they are not Incapable of solu tion, and It Is believed that by earnest and united effort the difficulties may be met and overcome witn. mis ena in view, and to establish closer relations between the managers of the trunk lines It has seemed wise to your board to acquire an Interest in some of the railways reaching the seaboard, and to unite with the other shareholders who control those properties In supporting a conservative policy" follow lnc the bold and accresslve lead of the Pennsylvania management tbe old methods of running railroad corporations was abandoned, and buniness methods were Introduced in their stead Of course, all the results which have been accom plished were not due to Mr Cassatt's" courageous Initiative, but it is significant that cross, earnings) which had Increased but $75 000.000 In 197 and JSO.CmOOlO in 1S&S Jumped to J153 OKXOO In UOO. and the in crease of last vear, when It Is fullv com piled, will easily go over J200 000.0f0 In five vears the nilroads of the country have increased their gross earnings no les than $720 000000. and their net Increase will be found to be at least $210,000,000 In that period Tn all commercial.
