CHICAGO, July d-The Tribune today
publishes a signed staement from Lyman
J. Gage, former wtary of the treas
ury, defining his relation to Tbeosophy
The statement is as follows:
Point Loma. Cal., via San Diego, Cal.
"I am trying life at Point Loma be
cause I have personal friends here; be'
cause the climate is most agreeable; be
cause it is just outside of the rush and
roar of the world; because here on can
lead the simple life.
"Beyond these reasons there are two
institutions established here which to
me lend much interest to the place. The
first if the United States military wer
ration with its fine system of harbor de
fenses, its companies of artillerymen.
"The second is the Raja Roga school
for children and youths of all ages.
inis school was established and is
being carried on by Katherine Tingley
as leader .and official head of the Uni
versal Brotherhood , and theosophical
society throughout the world. The school
excited my interest, and the magnificent
work it is doing in the development of
clean, healthy, well-educated and self
controlled young lives stimulates my
hope for the future of the society,
"I am not affiliated except in this
friendly way either with the military
station oi the theosophical, society. I
am too old to enlist in the army and I
have not yet been" invited to join the
theosophists. I would consider it honor
able to be related to- either of them.
"Xo, I am jat living with my own
life according to my best conception of
it and would much enjoy it if I could be
left to mind my own business.
"(Signed) LYMAN J. GAGE."
