DAILY ESTABLISHEu 1878. RICHMOND DAILY PALLADIUM, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1S04. ONE CENT A COPY. Y "PRAGMATISM J? WAS THE THEME OF PROF. EOYCE AT EARLHAM COL LEGE LAST NIGHT. A SPLENDID LECTURE A Clear and Logical Explanation of the New School of Philosophy. Prof. Josiah Royce, who is at the head of the history of philosophy de partment of Harvard University, de livered liis lecture on "Pragmatism and Truth" before a large audience last night. Mr. Royce speaks slowly and very distinctly, his voice carrying well. His exposition Avas logical, ami his fine, sympathet ie a rgum en t ..embodying very appropriate illustrations, was with out fault. Mr. Roye, in the iirst part of his lecture, explained Pragmatism, the name by Avhich the new school of philosopohy of the Chicago Univers ity, under Prof. Dewey, is known. Pragmatism is judgment, founded upon practical thought. Man thinks because he needs to think, and ought to think and judge because he needs to have his need satisfied. A person user, argument and persuasion in or der to impress upon his fellowmen his opinions and judgments, which he thinks it necessary that they should know. Man desires companions and their opinions merely -because he feels that he needs their, companion ship and their judgments. Prof. Royce stated that the new school of philosophy was doing a good work, and would be productive of much good; but that the thinking as set forth in the principal argu ments of this school was not original.' This feeling of the conscious need or duty, which is productive of good, was taught by the Epicureans and Stoics. He said that Pragmatism does not go far enough. Then, ex plaining modern idealism, which holds in its grasp all scientific thought and unites reason and experience, he re plied to Pragmatism, saying1 that there is an eternal truth in life, and that it is necessary that in our thinking we seek the divine, the un known, the eternal.. We must search for eternal. Prof. Royce, after lecturing this morning in the college chapel at S:30 on the subject, "George Fox, the Mystic," left for Indianapolis to lec ture before the Brownie club. All philosophical readers will have the opportunity to read the lecture which Mt. Royce delivered last night, since it will bo published in the American Philosophical Review, with the publishing of which Cornell Uni versity is connected. Richmond people were certainly favored in being allowed to hear Mr. Royce, since it is very seldom that one is privileged to hear a man of such broad views and ability for orig inal thinking as Mr. Royce possesses.

CARRIE L. LEHMAN IN THE INTEREST OF EX CONVICTS AND OTHERS She is in the City and Will Lecture at Fifth Street M. E. Church Sunday. Mrs. Carrie A. Lehman is in the city. This simple announcement gives no idea of who Mrs. Lehman is. She is a lady who is devoting her life to finding employment for paroled or discharged prisoners. She represents the Howard Society, the object of which is to keep men who have once been behind the bars from, again fall ing into temptation. It is an unen dowed society, but it is the ardent be lief of its officers that some philan thropist will soon see the result of the good work being done and donate a large sum of money to lighten the labors of the men and women who are doing so much for the unfortunates who get behind the prison bars. Mrs.' Lehman has charge of the work in Kentucky and Southern In diana and to her efforts and influ ence hundreds of ex-convicts owe their present standing in the world. For the past eight years she has been untiring in her work of placing these unfortunate men in positions of trust and honor, and she said the percent age of those who turned out bad wTas so small as to not be worthy of no tice. Mrs. Lehman is waging a campaign of education, and brotherly love. When she reaches a city she at first endeavors fo create an interest in the cause of reform by public talks at churches and halls. After she has succeeded in doing this shegoes to the business men and manufacturers and asks if they would be willing to take into their employ a man who had worn the prison stripes. "It is surprising," she said last nh-rht to a Palladium reporter, "how many of the people I see are more than willing- to give these unfortun ate men a chance. When I find a man who tells me he would have nothing to do with a man or boy who had been to prison I simply ask him what he would do if it was his own son. This question usually causes them to look at the matter in a dif ferent light and they usually take a more charitable view of the situation. Mrs. Lehman will iry an-d secure some place in which to -speak and make known her cause. v Total number, of applicants helped by this association, 25G.
