Very favorably impressed by the project
of Professor Morton , bettor known by
his pseudonym of "Sivartha , " to restore
Palestine to its ancient greatness and
rebuild Jerusalem. Every ono who has
liny claims to bo considered a well-
informed Christian knows that it is p.irt
of tlio orthodox Jewish faith that the
exiled Hebrews , scattered to the four
quarters of the globe , will bo dually
gathered up by the omnipotent hand of
Providence and placed , in all the glory
of their pristine power in arms and art ,
in full possession of Jerusalem. The
word of the prophet hath so declared
and it has stood in the scriptures
through ages , a prediction which Hebrews -
brows have revered and Christians re
A belief in the words of the ancient
prophecy is most natural in the Jewish
people who in an almost miraculous man
ner have preserved , through centuries
of vicissitudes , the characteristics and
traditions of their Oriental ance try.
Kvon the wonderful tenacity of the Ir
ish race in battling through centuries
for national recognition is but a mere
modern instance compared with the
protracted struggle of tlio Jews for an
independent existence. Almost a thous
and years before the Irish people were
placed under the ban of expatriation the
children of Abraham had been driven
from tlio valleys of Palestine and wore
Buffering the hardships of ovilo in var
ious lands. Wherever this Oriental
people went they carried with them the
traditions of their land of promise.
They had been in exile and in bondage
before and fate had favored them.
Their prophets had foretold that the
Uabyloninn captivity would bo followed
by an era of great national power and
prosperity , and the words had come to
pass. The temple had been restored
and the glory of the epochs ccHp-od.
When , therefore , the seer of a later ago
of adversity predicted the reconstruc
tion of a now Jerusalem after the Ro
man conquest , and the politi
cal ascendancy of his race once
nioro , the prophecy left an impression
which thousands of years have not en
tirely effaced. Tlio attention given to
the utterance of "Sivartha , " and the
fact that the orthodox rabbis pray daily
for the restoration of Jerusalem to their
race , provo how slowly the faith in the

the reformed as well as the orthodox

According1 to the press dispatches ,
"Sivartlm" has itnbueu u great number
of .Tows with his religious fervor , mid
will at once transplant his impressiona
ble co-roligionists to Palestine. He has
laid put extensive and careful plans , it
is said , for the rebuilding of Jerusalem
and its temples in harmony with the
prophetic descriptions in the Bible.
According to "SivarthaV views , the
New Jerusalem is to bo the religious
and political center of the world , and
1 lie valley of the Euphrates the homo
of 100,000.000 of people.
Tt was hinted some time ago in press
dispatches that "Sivarlha' ' was only
another alias of a mini who , some years
ago , appeared in San Krancisco under
the title of Ilabbi Edward Joseph , to
advocate the scheme of rehabilitating
Jerusalem , "Rabbi" Edward Joseph
collected funds which , it is said , wore
not applied to the coloni/ation of 1'ales-
tine , so tiiat if ho and ' 'Sivartha. " wore
the same personage , the much-talked-ot
fulfillment of the prophecy would not
have a propitious beginning. The ed
itor of the World's Advance Thought
writes to the Chronicle , however , to
contradict the report that "Sivarlhn' '
over masqueraded as a rabbi in Califor
nia. None of the rabbis in this city
have ever been the enthusiastic ! col-
oni/.er , and all that is known of him by
them lias boon acquired through a pe
rusal of his writings published in spir-
ituul and other journals.
"stVAUTJIA" AND Hit. TKACIIIXO.
"Sivartha" is a spiritualist who be
longs , according to the classification ot
what are called soul-sciontists , to "tho
intellectual plane between the creative
soul state and the instructive animal
blato. Thib condition will ho hotter un-
doratood by a perusal of Sivartha's biog
raphy , as published under his own di
rection. In this sketch it ia slated that
Sivartha , on coining into the world in
INI ! , A. 1' . , found the religious atmos
phere full of excitement in both wcit-
orn Kuropo and America. In 1S38 ,
when ho was yet only four years old , ho
formed n complete plan for the whole
course of his life. lie learned arithmo-
tie us taught in the schools in the marvelously -
velously brief space of three weeks.
Two weeks sutHccd to make him an au
thority on grammar , and his other
studios wore conducted with equal cel
erity. All this astounding precocity
needed an explanation , and Sivarthu
informed his parents nnd preceptors
that though ho was iv youth
in outward nnd visible form , he
was inU'lleotually a man of mature
judgment , for he had lived a great
many years before , nnd now had re
turned to do u work that was to reach
through the whole world , and ho the
crowning auhiovoment of the spirit
which had passed through other bodies
until it reached his.
Tills philosophy of "Sivarlha , " while
it may bcem rather unique , is not as
now us it looks. There are unques
tioned proofs that it was taught 12,400
years ago , .mid perhaps ninv then have
been not much more of a novelty thnn
now. Pythagoras , the Greek philoso
pher , who was born 680 B. C. , men
tioned that the souls of men are movintr
numbers , capable of combining with
anybody and. destined to pass success
ively through several. The contribu
tions of Slvnrthu to spiritual journals
uro equally suggestive ol impassions
gained by u study of the isms of the an
cient Greek philosophers.
T1IK TIIKE OF LIFE.
In a letter to the World's Advance
Thought , headed , "Tho Tree of Life a
Keality , " Sivartha goes on to show that
everything in life is constructed on
mathematical principles and the tree
form is the arrangement of organic
cells that can sustain life. .Man is
built , ho declares , on the organic prin
ciple of a tree. Sivartha puts it in this
A few examples will Illustrate the uni
versality of this law. Thus wo see- that In
the lungs the grout nlr tube or trachea
branches into tlio bronchial tubes , and these
subdivide until they terminate in clusters of
air cells , liy these air cells the blood is
purified , the vital work of the lungs is done.
Dissect any gland of the body and the same
tree plan is seen. For example , the liver
shows us the .hepatic duct nnd brunches , in
cells in which the bile is secreted. The pai o-
tid gland has Steno's duct , witli branches
und clustering cells which pour forth the
saliva to moisten our food ns we cat. The
arteries und veins , starting fiom the heart ,
brunch out over the body and terminate in
the cells of its various tissues , whore the
blood does the vital work of giowth , motion
And , tinnlly , the great law of tree-forms ,
finds its highest exemplification in the brain
and spinal cord of man.
The brain is the radiant and graceful foil-
ago on the tree of life. This tree beuis
twelve kinds of fruit , for the mental facul
ties are classified into twelve groups by the
most recent scientific analysis.
Till ; I'yTIIACIOKKAX PHILOSOPHY.
Pythagoras mid his disciples , who
lived over -,400 years ago , went further
than Sivartlia and held that the essence
of all thtngi rested upon numerical re
lations. They reduced abstract ideas
to numbers. Justice , for example , was
called a square number , and hence
doubtless 11 just man is in the vernacu
lar of to-day denominated a 'Square
man. " The actual world was built up
of numbers laid one upon another.
Sivartlia's "treo of life" is a looicly
arranged plan compared with the celes
tial chart of the Pythagoreans , which
placed the planets at distances proportioned
tioned to the length of strings capable
of producing harmonious tones. The
universe , according to the Pythago
reans , moved to the music uf these
spheres and moral and mental qualities
wore regulated with mathematical ex
actness. In 11111118 * brain , the "foliage"
of which , Sivartha writes , were located
the understanding and reason. The
heart held the passions , and so on
through all the virtues and vices.
Sivartha is somewhat diflerent from
other persons who have attempted the
fulfillment of the prophecy about the
New Jerusalem. Ho does not claim to
bo personal Messiah , hut a composite
embodiment. The soul which animates
him is not the original Pythagorean
spark from the deity , but a spirit which
has passed through successive bodies
till it has reached that stage where its
alloted task is to be finished.

A chronicle reporter who had mas
tered the philosophy of Sivartha sought
BO vc nil . ( distinguished rabbis of
Francisco in conversation on the sub
ject. The reverend gentlemen of the
llobrowfaith almost unanimously smiled
at the reference to the Slvnrthian
scheme. They took a largely practical
view of the matter and considered that
the scheme was , to say the least , im
practicable at present and certainly can
not bo made successful in the manner in
dicated in the press dispatches about

'Let us look nt the question from the
political standpoint , " said the rabbi.
"Palestine is under the rule of the
Turks and the sultan is opposed to col
onisation. How can Sivartha rebuild
the Temple and restore Jerusalem ,
oven though he had the means. Be
fore ho could take the lirst stop ho
should obtain a , lirmin from the sultan ,
and how is ho to obtain it from that unprogressive -
progressive ruler ? Some time ago
there was a report that the Roths
childs intended to buy Palestine , but
there was not a word of truth in it , Pal
estine cannot be bought.
Till ] COI.OMX.ATIOX SCHKMi : .
"Another barrier to the scheme of
colonization as outlined by Sivartha. ' '
continued the rabbi , "is the fact that
the Jews of Kurope nnd America have
become in ideas and tastes a western
people and uro not an oriental race any
more. Their ideas have been changed
and modified , and they have prospered
so well in the new clvili/ation that it is
not likely that they would want to ex
change the certainties of life in this
land of freedom for the uncertainties ot
existence in Palestine. There uro
7,000,000 of .lows , too , and Palestine ,
under the most favorable conditions , is
only capable of supporting about ! ! ,000-
000. Notwithstanding the uilnculty of
colonizing Palestine , an attempt'has
been madeand numbor&of Uomanianand
Russian Jews have been sent there.
The movement , however , has been only
one to allord relief. There are several
colonies also in America , notably
one in Oregon , wncro attention
lias been turned to agriculture.
Looking from a purely practical
standpoint at the project advocated by
Sivartha , it does not seem rational to
start an emigration of Jews to Jerusa
lem , when uo consider that in some of
the states of this great republic there
are counties as largo as Palestine pro
per. I , for my part , think wo should
thank God for the blessings bestowed on
u- ) and besatislicd with our condition.
No , I do not think the Sivarthian pro
ject will receive any encouragement
from thinking people , for.asl remarked ,
the coloni/ation of Palestine , while
not impossible , appears at present a re
mote probability. This is not the time
nor is Sivartha the man who has the
mission , and all Jews whether of the
reform or orthodox faith , will doubtless
tell you much the same. "

"Tho Reformed church , " ' said one
scholarly Hebrew , "does n.ot maintain
the doctrine that the prophecy of the
rehabilitation of Jerusalem shall bo
literally fulfilled. Kvon if it did , no
one would hope to find in Sivnrtha the
agent of a divine power or the humble
mortal able to overcome the now insur
mountable ditliculties , both political
nnd financial. With the orthodox Jews
the ultimate restoration of Jerusalem is
a matter of faith , nnd prayers are de
voutly olTored rogulurly for the fulfill
ment of the promise. The orthodox
faith contemplates the advent of a Mes

OLE SONY'S CRIME.
San Francisco Argonaut : A crime
had been committed in Mississippi.
One lovely evening in May as a rosy
twilight was stealing on , a little girl
dragged herself to her mother's door.
She had been gathering wild violets
and yellow jasmine along the brook and
intended to decorate her mother's hum-
bio mantel-shelf , but she had been
gone a long time. Her largo blue
eyes were bloodshot , and a dark shadow
appeared beneath them , her flaxen
hair was disheveled and the marks of
brutal lingers stood out with inflamed
prominence on her tender throat. She
could not climb tlio stops , and called
out , faintly and piteously : "Mother. "
QTho woman rose from her chair ,
dropped her scissors and spools , throw
her work on the floor and ga/ed at her
child stupefied and horror stricken.
She caughthor up and pressed her to
her heart , moaning :
"My poor baby ! my poor baby ! Omv
Oed ! my ( Jed ! "
That night the child died. Mounted
men and men on foot wore sent scour
ing the forests , and towards morning
thoyjmnight in a negro. Ho wa * , the

The prisoner wanhold until the freight
train pulled up at the station. AVlion
Bob Angel descended from the fire-cab
ho was followed by his negro fireman.
The latter had evidently just finished
his supper , for ho was wiping tlio grease
from his shining lips and chin with
the back of his hand. Ho procured the
oil can and torch and was "oiling up , "
as a long run between stations was
ahead. The negro had a neck like a
bull's ; ho was somewhat knock-kneed
and had splay feet of enormous size ; ho
was largo and strong , ajul could crack
hickorv nuts between his tooth like a
hog. lie was called "Olc Bony , " be
cause ho disdained to eat the moat onlv
of chickens. Ho ate bones and all.
' I'll turn him over to Bony , " said
Angel ; "not that I mind doing it my
self , but Bony will enjoy it so muoh. "
Bony was called aside and the
flllJIK UKVL'AIJ'.I ) TO HIM.
"An * that's the nigger dar what done
it ? " "Ves. "
Bony wont to one side and "studied
the situation , " pondering deeply. An
gel eyed him closely , endeavoring to
decipher every expression as an index
of the thoughts that gathered under
the wooly pr.te of the negro. Bony was
sitting on the end of a cross tie , his
elbows resting on his knees , and his
grimy lingers interlocked. Ho was
bareheaded , and ho softly tapped the
ground with his long feel , slowly and
alternately. His head was boni and
his eyes wore half cloned. After sit
ting a few minutes ho ro o and shook
himself like a dog that has been asleep.
After this he went to a telegraph polo
and rubbed his back against it.
"Hynrs me ! " ho said.
The prisoner was placed in the tender -
dor in a sitting posturehis back against
the pile of woo 1 , and his face turned to
wards the locomotive. His hands wore
tied behind him and his logs were
bound together at the knccsand ankles.
A gaer was in his mouth. Bob Angel
pulled open the throttle valve and I ho
train slowly dragged its length into the
night : and all that could bo soon by
those loft behind were two eyes that
stared back at them from the last car.
One of these o.yes was red , the other
green. Thov were the real .signal
"I b'liovo 1's do boss furor whileain't
I , cnp'nr"
"Yes , I believe ? o , " replied Angel.
Without another word Ole Bony went
to the wood-pile aiidi'iimiiicncod to pitch
the fuel to the front of tlio louder. Hav
ing done this ho begun to p.ilo it up on
the fool-board in two separate heaps.
One contained the
IMC u , iii ixors
nine , and the other the oak and the
hickory. Ho then opened the furnace
fire door and tluwyin the pine rapidly.
The prisoner sat and watched it all !
When ho had filled the fire box lie
rested and amused himself by singing
snatches of old plantation songs.
Ho again opened the lire door and
found the pine being rapidly consumed ,
the llames seething and roaring. He
threw in the onU and hii-Knrj , the nine
having sunk to yivo it room , ami re
marked : "Hot * nnugh d'ruclly. "
The train reached Chiclm-awhay
swamp. Bony said :
" 1 species she's a-gittin' dry forrcd

The helpless prisoner was ' ocurc-d 10
the board as Bony dirucU'd , and Angel
crawled through the window , neglect
ing , however , to take the oil-can but
that was no matter. Old Bony had
thrown in more pine , and the locomo
tive was belching for ! h a cloud of black
smoke which trailed out ever the train
like the tail of an
INKY GOMIT. :
The glaring , staring , c.yeloponn eye
of the engine was tunneling the dark
ness , plowing a p.isago through the
night for the head and body to which it
belonged. Looking back ward , Hob Angel
saw a vision that nmd < s his heart stand
still. This is what ho saw : The lire
door had been thrown open , and in
tense light therefrom streamed upon
the black clouds of smoke and upon the
dense foliage by the wayside as upon a
screen on which would bo projected the
shadows of inlurposlng bouitis. And ho
did see strange shadows magnitlod into
gigantic proportions frightful shadows
they wore that surged through the for
est or wore Hiispened in the smoke. It
seemed to Angel that the gate of hell
was open , and that the shadows he saw
were made by demons dancing before

made a bravo sOiow in the funural pro-
eebsion. Itvas carried on itelvut
eiiHhion by a general o' the army , and
as the Hiinlight played upon it it was in
Hpnetiieuliirl.y brilliant as the most rabid
worshippiir of royalty could dnsiro. It
was of rod velvet , except for the gold
band that went around the head , and
four other hands that mot at the top ,
where a diamond that looked ni largo
ah alien' * egg joined the four arms.
Those bands of gold were broad and
btuddod with jowulH of enormous ni/.u ,
and the olfoot which they produced ,
partieularly against the background of
erinibon velvut , was gorgeous.
