WEDNESDAY MARCH 1. 1S79
THE OTHER LIFE.
Hon. Tfcoma Fitch lectured at Pashaway
Hail. Saa Francisco, on " The Other Lite
nd in answer to Colonel Bob Insreraoll. Mr.
Fitch having, been introduced by President
E. T. Diitt'irs. after prolont;ed applause, said
he professed adhesion to no religious sect, and
expected no church to be responsible for hi8
utterances. The presumption was decidedly
against his beinir iu anv way in the Lord's
service, for he was a lawyer, and lawyers are
popularly credited with allegianco to a patron
:unt nameless in that hall on mat occasion.
He was not by profession, and he feared in
sufficiently by practice, a Christian, and if he
succeeded in striking a blow m detense or the
fortress of Christianity it would be the blow
of a volunteer. The churches which had
Btruok at that gifted rebel against Christianity
had been hampered by their theological rules.
Ha4elieved Ingersoll had not yet been replied
to Jbj one not professing to belong to any
church, as he himself did, although he devout
ly believed that it was not "all of life toflive
nor all of death to die. He left the Chris
tian flocks to the care of their shepherds. He
spoke to "those outside of the churches, those
who know little of technical theology, those
who worship at no stated times nor at any
designated temples, to those who patronize
no particular religion, to those who attend
dances and theaters and horse races ; to that
honest, earnest, progressive world which re
spects irenerally that splendid system of the
ology that for countless centuries has held
aloft, to a constantly perfecting civilization,
the radiant flambeau which has lit it on its
way." It is to that world, which thinks " if
I die I shall live aeam. that I give the sin
ner's reply to the infidel There is an old
book which says " Judge of the tree by its
fruits." The inspiration of the book may be
denied, but the accuracy of the conclusion
must be admitted. By any reasonable meas
ure of values there is not a religion that ever
was believed in but it was infinitely better for
the world than no religion at all, infinitely
preferable to the cold and pulseless nonbelief
of the materialists.
This much says Thomas and a good deal be
sides, mostly in his highly humorous vein.
For example, in discussing the materialistic
notion he draws the following caricature:
According to the theory of the materialists,
if a pound of flour is put into a Shakespeare
the result will be a tragedy, in a Napoleon, a
victory, in a Dick lurpm a ride on Black
Bess, and in an ingersoll a lecture on ghosts.
We are wax works, and a mutton chop is the
crank pin that winds us up. The lover says
to his Matilda. "I love you. If you will be
ay bride life will be one long dream of hap
piness." She immediately recognizes the cut
let of calf he had eaten for breakfast as the
food force of the sentiment, and immediately
making a draft on the SpriDg chicken which
he had eaten she coos the reply: " Claude,
me adored one, I am theeine. "
Now, Tom Fitch knows as much about the
tme inwardness of religious systems .w Henry
Ward Beecher knows about the merits of the
Chinese question. If he imagines that he
can impair the argument of Bob Ingersoll, or
rather the argument of really great intellects
such as Tom Paine, of whose works he does
nothing more than make a popular and bom
bastic paraphrase, he is greatly deceived. But
he is not deceived. He knows as well as
anybody that iu his lecture he did not even
touch upon the true premises of infidels,
deists, or atheists. He is an artist in gossamer
word work. He knows his sphere and you
never catch him outside of it. In so far he is
A NEW THEORY REGARDING MUM
The Journal of Chemistry haa the following:
TT - f . . l . ' . '
xiaving oosorvea taac Jigypt,iau mummies
could be divided into two classes, one embrac
ing those bodies which had been' embalmed
intact, and the other including those bodies
which had been eviserated, Dr. Gauselbach, a
Swedish chemist of repute and professor in
the University at Upsal, has formed the opin
ion that the mummies of the first class are
not really dead, but are only in a condition
of suspended animation ; though, unfortu
nately for historians, the secret of bring
ing them again to life has been lost. In sup
port of his theory he adduces the results of
his own researches and experiments, one of
which consists in' submitting a snake to a pro
cess, the details of which are of course kept
a secret, which petrihes it. In this condition
u has oeen laid aside tor a year or two at a
time, and is then restored to life by some
equally mysterious vivifying process. This
ba now been going on for abont fifteen years,
and the snake does not seem to dislike it. Dr.
Gauselbach is said to ha9o applied to the
Swedish Government for leave to experiment
on a condemned criminal, the understanding
being that if the experiment is succefsful the
criminal shall receive pardon because of the
service thus rendered to science and, possibly,
R. C. Emmons of Lovelock arrived here
yesterday. He informs us that an attempt
to assassinate him was made recently, and
that nis son narrowly escaped the bullet which
was evidently intended for him. The shot
was fired into the express office, which he had
left a few momenta before, and in which his
son wa standing at the time. The bullet was
fired from the door, which was partly opened,
and buried itself in the counter. A short
time before this attempt was made on his
life, Mr. Emmons' cellar was firod by an in-
oondiary, and burned, with its contents. Mr.
Emmons does not know his enemies, and can
assign no reason for these cowardly outrages,
except it is because he attends to his own
business and does all he can to attract settlers
to the locality in which he resides. Silver
State, 17th. .
Senator Jones of Nevada, and Blaine of
Maine, have been taking a trip to Richmond,
Va. , to look after some railroad property that
both a e interested in.
A RAY OF LIGHT.
The New York .Sun, in its Wall Street re
view ot the litn, says: the growing ani
mosity of the West toward the East has been
much talked about of late in connection with
the Chinese question. Aa a matter of course
a great deal of nonsense has been uttered on
the subject, both by pro-Chinese and anti-
Chiuese; but to judge from the opinions of
neutral and intelligent observers, the ques
tion is a much more momentous one than is
gonerally supposed at the East. Our old
friend Maurice Strakosh, for instance, a very
shrewd man, and one who knows California
well, said the other day on this subject : "I i
tell you, gentlemen, no amount of Presiden
tial vetoes will reconcile California to the
presence of the Chinese. The question, I
assure you, is one of much greater moment
than you can possibly imagine.
TOE AND HEEL MAN.
It is stated that Rowell, the Englishman
who won the late six days' walking match in
new York city, has decided to start at once
for the Pacific coast, and that he will be ac
companied by his brother ' pedestrian, Harri-
man. It is also announced that a match has
been arranged between Rowell and Valentine
Zahn, the doorkeeper at the Standard The
ater, San "Francisco, to take place within two or
three weeks from date, at Piatt's Hall, for a
purse of 25,000. The distance and terms of
the proposed contest have not yet been an
nounced. It is also reported that Weston
has telegraphed him a challenge from across
the Atlantic. It will keep the champion
busy to preserve his hard won belt.
From the Bodie Si-awiard we learn of the
following unfortunate accident to an old Car-
sonite: It is with deep regret that we learn
that while Uncle Bob Foulke was coming up
from Carson his hat box, containing a brand
new stove-pipe hat of the latest and nobbiest
style, fell off the stage and a wheel passed
over it, rendering it utterly unfit for the pur
pose for which it was intended. It has ever
been a matter of pride witn all true Bodie-
ites to see Uncle Bob promenade each Sunday
afternoon in a genteel plug tile a dispensa
tion having been granted him in that respect
and this melancholy news will strike each
heart with a pang of regret. We trust that
Uncle Bob may be so fortunate as to repair
the damage done to his. wardrobe at an early
A man whose name is supposed to have
been John McCahn, a native of Scotland, was
killed very suddenly yesterday afternoon,
aWout 2 o'clock, at R. M. P. Greeley's lumber
yard. He was engaged in unloading flat-car
loads of lumber and while cutting a side stake
tiie load suddealy fell over, catching him
under it and crushing his skull, killing him
instantly. The Coroner will hold an inquest
at 7 o clock this evening. lieiw Oazette of the

Gates, a pioneer of Waahoe County, died
this morning at seven o'clock from the kick of
a horse, which he received several days ago.
Mr. Gates was a pioneer in this county. In
company with Mr. Stone he built the bridge
across the Truckee at Glendale, which was the
first crossing in the county.
That even the very great may suffer the j
pangs of social slight is made manifest by the I
following dispatch of the 16th from London :
Gladstone was not invited to the Duke of
Con naught's wedding. This omission excited
much comment in political circles, as Lords
Granville and Hartington received invita-.

fever and diphtheria is r:igini among the lit
