Bears under Such (ircnmsUncw became more aggressive as tL- day wore along, and the market became more active and the weakness more pronounced. The pressure was specially severe against Southwestern stocks, grangers, and a few ethers, such as Louisville and Nashville and <-oiton Oil, the latter being a marked feature of the market Vanderbilts and Lake Shore in particular were the strong features of the day, although they were fractionally lower at the close.

NEW TEMPLE TO BUDDHA. Headquarters Established at Last by the Tbeosophical Eoclety in New York City. New York, Dec. I.- From timo to time, since the founders of tbo Tbeosophi cal Society sailed to India to heathen ize the natives there, news of their doings have interested (more or le s) the curious in such mattors, and has been published widely in the newspapers of Eu rope and America. It is not so well known, however, that there is an active band of their followers iri New York, who continue to hold meetings and issue different papers and tracts de signed to convince tbo skeptical of the great truths of theosophy. 1 hev are not rich, and the notorious project of building a Buddhist temple in the ciyr has never gone further than to form a dream in the minds of the promoters. They have, how ever, obtained means enough to fit up a place, which serves for a temple, and the place, singularly enough, is in an office building in one of the very busiest streets in Now York. They have hired a ball for their regular meetings, Mott Memorial hall, it is, and there, on certain specified Tues day nights, strange people, suen as wander ing Hindoos, Oriontal Hebrews, and unre constructed Greeks bold forth on tbe rnan nerK and queer religions of their races and birth places. They (tbe Tbeosophists of Now York) also publish a monthly ’maga zine called the Path. Nobody understands THE MORNING NEWS: SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1888. it excepting themselves, but enough of them have subscribed, I am told, to pay the printer, and tbe editors and contributors work for the good of the cause. The most remarkable development, how ever, is unquestionably tbe little toy tem ple at 117 Nassau street. Here, if the stor ies of the initiates are to be believed, cer tain marvels are to be witnessed. Unhap pily for the interests of the newspaper readers these marvels are not performed to order, and I was unable to persuade the mild-eyed heathen priest who was in charge, to do any miracles for me, though he was willing enough to let me inspect tho place and its fittings. It is a little room. Fortunately, tbe Theosophists, like Mr. Dick, care nothing for the swinging of cats, and are not ob liged to rent superfluous space. You get into the rooms by the prosaic means of going up the slowest elevator in town, enter ing a business office, r,nd getting permis sior there (if you can), to go through a side door into the sanctuary. It is tergiversa tion. but it pays. After opening the door, the priest pulls a curtain aside, and if you look closely you will find tho curtains is a Persian fabric of great beauty. Being lifted, it discloses a curious scene. Opposite tbo doorway sits Buddna. The god is small, and as ugly as conventionality demands, and he hits cross legged in a little niche, pondering tbe inex plicable secrets of nature, as imperturbably as be would if stationed in a Mahatma’s cave. In front of him a pot of incense is kept continually burning, and the smoke arises in wavy w reaths that load the air with a stifling perfume. On tho floor in front of tho image lies a Ceylonese grass mat, brought to New York by William Q J udge. Buddha, although apparently the presid ing deity of the place, does not seem to have full sway, fer on the wall at one end of tbe room, the blazing seal of the society oc cupies the place of honor. Over it is pic tured in illuminated letters, the motto: “No religion higher than truth.” Around the other walls are displayed some twenty-five shields, one for each of tho branches >f the society that have been established all over the United States. “All over” is not quite ac curate, but there are branchsocieties in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, lowa, Missouri aud California. These brauchos have each a distinctive name borrowed from the eas tern religions, among them, Ishwara, Ved anta, Isis, Dharrua and Nirwana. This last is located in Nebraska, and may be sup posed by the irreverent, to stand for tfie principal desire or longing of the citizens of that state. A heavy Turkish rug covers the flor.r, and plain, ordinary, everyday furniture store chairs and a table stand around for furniture, but on the table well as on the walls are various objects of interest. Anioug them are representations of the 1 heosopluc&l convent ion in India, and of the s ciety buildings in Bombay. Another s ene is the picture of an Egyptian initia tion painted in magic colors, the pigm-nts for which wero dug by Mme. Blavatskv’s fair fingers out of an ancient stone wall in Teheran. Those who doubt this statement, are at liberty to go to Teheran and see the wall, which is still there. Mr. Judge has carried this picture nearly all over the world, and it is accordingly prized highly by tbe faithful. Underneath the picture is a bracket on wbich are certain occult things whose use the priest would not ex plain. They are a square and a pyramid of crystal, and a sphere of polished steel. If they aro of any service beyond being orna mental, the initiates only are allowed to know it. Half a dozen emblems of religions other than Buddhaismi are displayed on the walls. Among them is a drawing, said to be a re presentation of an ancient Indian statue of a virgin and a child guarded by Celes tial shadowy beings. Tne priest also des cribed a bronze, which is shortly to be added to the queer collection, and which is a copy of an obelisk standing in the rock cut cities of India, deserted some 3,000 or 4,000 y ears ago. This obelisk, he says, also bears tbe sculptured images of a virgin and child. How tbe virginal charac.er of the.-e undoubtedlv ancient representations is es tablished, I could not learn. The priest said it would be necessary forme to study many volumes of unimpeachable history before being convinced. 011 the table lies a huge album contain ing photographs of famous theosophists, and some not famous, from all over the world. It also contains a pictuie of some Ma hatma, which (tho picture) is said to wink its eyes at long intervals. It did not wink while I was looking, but I saw tho picture. Copies in English and .‘Sanscrit of the Bhagavad-Gita lie also on tbe table; the latter eight times as large as tho former, to say nothing of its being really harder to understand. There is, moreover, a visitors’ book, in which I found alleged names in what is said to be Hebrew aud Sanscrit, They wero certainly not written in Italian script or Roman letters, but looked very much like a lot of parentheses aud excla mation (joints. Other names were J. Rals ton Skinner, of Cincinnati, O.; Prof. Piazzi Smytbe, ?>arah Fisher Ames, H. B. Foulke, of Philadelphia, and many equally known to fame. The most remarkable thing in the room is a huge misshapen mass of rock crystal, with what looks like a largo natural fau<-et. This side is blazingly brilliant, or was when I saw it. It is said to vary in brilliancy at, times, and to be a veritable magic crystal in wbich the spiritual sighted can see vis ions. mostly relating to theosophical mat ters. Tho officers consult it at cer tain times of the mouth to learn the condition of the branches of the society, and they claim that when the members of the inner circle only are present, queer sights are seen, and invisible hells are heard to ring. The rooms are open to visitors daily, though the Hindoo priest is not alv ass there. He was very reserved when I quei tioned him about himself, though he was willing enough to talk fluently about tbe temple and the aims of the society. His ap pearance was sufficiently striking to attract attention even in this cosmopolitan city if he had been met anywhere else except in this toy temple. He was rather taller than the average Hindoo, and immeasurably more emaciated than anyother human being outside of a dime museum has a right to be. Ho had the strongly marked feat ures and full black beard that belong by rigut to the religious recluse of the eas , nnd was garbed in a compromise between his native costume and the clothing best adapted to tho American climate. Over what looked like a ready made suit from a Broadway clothier’s establishment he wore a long blue coat of no particular pattern— just a coat, nnd on his head was perched one of those mnrvelous triumnhs of human ingenuity known as a Poona turban. This is alleged to be wonderfully twisted up out thirty-four or thirty-five yards of Lowy cotton cloth, and the most expert native* are said to take two hours to do tho twist ing. When it is done it is a wrapper for the head that defie* boat and cold alike, and looks as if it would keep off a stroke of lightning. His name, however, is more remarkable than his turban, being no lees tha t Ba la ma Naarayana Pelt. It is noticeable that a strange odor, like, and very unlike san dalwood. floats in the air around him. Ho speaks English perfectly, and uses it skill fully to conceal his thoughts. It is said by some of the theosophists that he is here on some mission from the Mahatmas, and will disappear when that is accomplished. Meantime ho is frequently at the temple, and when there he assumes charge of things. Tbe number of bona fide Buddhists in tho United States who are interested in the now movi ment is considerable, though so far as known William Q. Judge, tho Presi of the New York Theosophists, is the only American who has been admitted to tbe Buddhist church by tho Rt. Rev H. Bum- ! angala, the high cockoioruin who rules that institution, and who dwells on Adams Peak, in Ceylon. David A. Curtis.
