The receivers of the Union Pacific only
want $1,500 a month for their services.
There are five of these kid-gloved gentry
and it would require only the trifling
bagatelle of $90,000 per month to them
out of the poor house. Uncle Sam had
better make them a deed in fee simple of
his costly right, title, interest and claim
in the road, and be done with it.
By the death of Professor Tyndall the
religious world has lost an old antagon
ist, the scientific world an eminent spec
ialist. Religiously he might be termed
an old-fashioned infidel; that is one who
in these late days ot nineteenth century
thought would be considered a firm be
lsever, because a seeker after truth. And
this latter Professor Tyndall certainly
was. His light shone brightest about 20
years ago, when unfortunately for his
reputation among churchmen, and more
unfortunately for the church, religion
and science were not merely on bad terms
with one another, but were decidedly
antagonistic. His great work was in the
realm of physical science, but unlike
many of his contemporaries, he saw in
the workings of material forces some
thing other than cold naked materialism.
“It is,” he says, “the inner works of the
universe which science reverently uncov
ers; it is the study of these that she
recognizes as a discipline worthy of all
acceptation.” In reading his works you
often feel yourself in the presence of one
who is earnestly seeking the truth for
himself and sincerely seeking to give it
to others. Professor Tyndall was more
than a physicist; he believed in the im
ag'nation, in emotion, in conscience. He
was a man of faith, one who looked on
the invisible and eternal, not a material
ist, for in his philosophy lay the doctrine
of divine immanence and divine omni
presence. A prominent religious journal
has lately commented: “If every modern
theologian could receive, by a sudden
inspiration, Professor Tyndall’s openness
of mind to all disclosures of truth, his
earnestness of purpose in quest of truth,
and his candor of statement in teaching
truth, there would be an end to heresy
trials; and the church universal would
enjoy an illumination like that which
used to make St. Peter's dome on Easter
night a blaze of glory.” Two events in
his life are remarkable for their unique
ness. The first is an inspiration espec
ially to youth. Born of a comparatively
poor and unknown family, he attained a
scientific peerage with the degrees of F.
R. S., L. L. D., D. C. L., married into
the nobility, and was made superintend
ent of the Royal institute of Great Brit
ain. The second event is no less uncom
mon. Some thirty or forty thousand
dollars, the result of an American lecture
course, he distributed among American
universities for the founding of scholar
ships. Surely here was one of those great
men of whom the poet said,“their doings
are sublime.” Heaven cannot give us
too many such “infidels.” F. D.
