CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MEANT
Episcopalians Divide on Recog

Prayer and Anointing.
Cincinnati. Oct. n— Oiving the sanction
of the Protestant Episcopal Church to the
healing of the si- k DJ prayer was pro
posed to the convention here to-day in a
report of a commission, of which Bishop
William Crane Gray "f Southern Florida.
The proposal set in motion a debate in
which all the deputies displayed the most
intense Interest. It «■«■" brought out In
the discussion that the belief in the su
pernatural power of healing is widespread
in the Chaveh.
"A Jewel which the Church cast away
end a woman picked up," was the way In
which the Rev. Dr. H. M. S. Taylor, of
Atlanta, referred to Christian Science.
The report of the committee dealt with

earnest longing for some recognition of
the possibility of a bealtng of the sick

In view of the very general seeking after
divine healing by faith cure people, Chris

"Your committee would, therefore, recom

two presbyters and two laymen he ap
pointed to prepare and report for an office

the Scriptural and '"atholic usapre. avoiding
any appearance of a sacramental rite im
medlately preceding death."
That ■ majority of the House of Depu
ties was in favor of the report was ahown
clearly when the clerical branch adopted
it by a vote of U to 17. with nine dioceses
not voting or divided. The laymen ot tne
house, awawr, killed the report by a

It required a majority in both orders ot
the house to carry the report. While the
question will come up before the House or

that the upper house Of the convention will
