b-t WEEKLY ESTABLISHED 1881. DAILY E3TABLISHE t 1878. RICHMOND DAILY PALLADIUM, WEDNE SD AY, FEBRUARY 3, 1904 ONE CENT A COPY. 4) PROF. HOIK- . AID IDEALISM THE GREAT HARVARD SCHOL AR WHO IS TO LEC TURE. AT EARLHAM TOMORROW Evening at 8 O' Clock President Kel ly Considers Him Emerson's Superior. Prof. Royce, of Harvard Univer sity Avill lecture tomorrow night at S lock at Lindley hall, Earlham. o e There will be a large attendance to hear the distinguished scholar. President Kelly states that large delegations besides the various clubs in this city Avill come from neighbor ing towns Dr. Royce says that many people say that they are idealists, but probably they would not "say so, if they understood just for what an idealist stands. To the idealist the world is through . and through an ideal, a spiritual mystery. This great 'order is once" f or all divine. Idealism has taught us, namely, (1) by showing us that, except for the world of ideas, except for the phe nomena that appear as outer to be ings with minds, or that have their place in the inner life of such beings, there is no reality at all; (2) by showing us. as Kant has shown, that there can be no rational order in na ture unless the thought of some ra tional being introduces such order, and (3) by leading us to postulate, as all the post-Kantian constructive idealists have postulated, that be neath the nature of our conscious self, which finds itself forced to rec ognize this or that as outer, there must lie a complete, an infinite self, which somehow, whether by a divine caprice or by a divine rationality, or by both combined, is actually and of its own nature not outwardly forced, but inwardly minded to express it self in this whole vast world of ours. Prof. Royce says: "That until the nineteenth century, or through the en tire romantic period of philosophy, idealism lived and thought, is a world of itself. All science and historical research had been excluded from this spiritual world of ideals. But if Ave as idealists return to the outer order, it is because Ave desire our idealism to remain no longer barren, abstract, afraid of experience, capricious, way ward, sentimental, or fantastic. We want our idealism to do a manly worlc. We want it to enter upon its true tasks, not of dreaming of a possible perfection, but of trans forming, or eidi veiling, of spiritualiz ing the concrete life of humanity. In its most fantastic moments idealism, unless it were perchance the roman tic irony of some young Friedrich Schlegel, has been sincerely anxious to embody, experience and get at the truth of life. "Science, on the other hand, in the person and work of any earnest and sensible investigator, however, narrow his specialty, however nnspiritual seemed his facts, has been through and through spiritual in its inmost conception of reality. Divorced from speculation, as it has usually chosen to be, it still has never lost sight of its task, namely, to elaborate the facts of experience in such wise as to find and to make apparent in them the laws, the essential truths, the ideas of things. "The return to the outer order in our century has therefore in its pre supposition not been a return to the old outer order of the seventeenth century. It has been a return to a world pervaded, as it were, with the spirit of idealism. Those who have believed that the spirit of the age of evolution removed ideals, removed teleology from the world, have, then, failed to see that the presupposition of our historical age, ever since Rous seau and the romantic period, has been that history is worth stduying for its own sake, and that, therefore, .ideals are responsible for nature's mechanism:" . . "But just herein lies the deepest problem of recent philosophy. It used to be said, there are -rigid and necessary laws of nature's median ism; and, as all is necessary, there fore the historical is insignificant. But our age, returning to a seemingly rigid outer order, returns with ideal ism in its reflective thought, with spiritual passion as its deepest pre supposition, and insists that, what ever nature's mechanism, there is still no knowledge so profound as the knowledge of the history of things. Yet how can this existence be defend ed? The doctrine of evolution, I as sert, is in heart and essence the child of the romantic movement itself. Can the child, inheriting its mother's depth and longing for wisdom, de fend this inheritance in this vast outer universe of rigid order and ab solute law? "That is the true problem of the philosophy of evolution. For my part there lies in all this discovery of our day the deeply important presup position that the transition from ani mal to man is in fact really an evo lution, that is, a real history, a pro cess having significance. If this is in truth the real interpretation of na ture, then the romantie philosophy has not dreamed in vain, and the out er order of nature will ernbody once more the life of a divine self. "Reflection is not a man's whole business. Our modern word is indeer vast. Many of us are better men without philosophy. Let such as arc so cling to experience. I object to this way of looking at the modern situation of human thought only when those who assume it declare that the history of thought teaches this sort of resignation, or that the problems and results of modern science demand it of us in any novel or peculiar sense. Our own age demands an in dustry in philosophy. The won drous suggestiveness of Kant, the marvelous analysis of self-conscious ness, and or its relation to truth i ns new problem suggested by the trine of evolution all are a d oc ean I- lenge to our time. Shall reflection, frightened by the diversity of opin ions, refuse to attempt their synthe sis? It is for us to see how well, meehanism and teleology, nature and evolution, experience and reason, be long together. Mr. Royce is no dreamy i.lealisr, but believes that idealism ?n return ing to the outer order does not havo to forsake philosophic theory f 5r ex perience; but both should work to gether harmoniously in order to solve the truths of which we a-e ignorant. NEW FUEL THIS TIME THE PRODUCT OF A RICHMOND MAN J. M. DENNIS' PATENT On Exhibition Yesterday at the Office Of Jessup and Jessup. Mr. James M.

The Richmond bedstead factory is one of our best institutions and is doing a big business. Yesterday, what some of the help term a trick, was played on one of the girls, but it turned out to be a serious trick. A few of the girl employes put some muriatic acid in a dipper of water and gave it to a Miss White to drink, which she did and became deathly sick. A doctor was called and administered emetics, getting the poison removed with difficulty. It is a very peculiar sort of a trick to play, and there is little excuse for such foolishness.
