CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CRIS'S

In i letter which she wrote to one of
he- students on December IS. and made
public last night. Mrs. Augusta K. Stet
fon. the one time leader at the Christian
Scientists i off this city, announced her
firm belief in the resurrection in the flesh
of Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy.
Two days ago Mrs. Stetson would not

tion. Last night she said that when she
had been interrogated concerning it be
fore, she believed that "the hour had not
come for the world to see and hear." She
believe? now that that hour has come.
"I know Mrs. Eddy will make her
demonstration over death. I know that
she will come in the flesh." said Mrs.
Stetson last night. "It may be to-day,
it may be n*xt -week, or it may even be

Mrs. Stetson believes that the Board of
l>irectors of the Mother Church in Bos
ion have forsaken the teachings of Mrs.
Eddy since the moment when they an
nounced to the world that Mr?. Eddy
•was a.l. Her argument, reduced to its
simplest form, is that Mrs. Eddy taught
and wrote that Christian Science could
triumph over "•sin, sickness and death."

TO FORCE BALFOUR OUT
Unionists Blame Him for All De

[By Cable to The Tribune.]
London, Dec. 29.— Strenuous efforts
are being made by the more active sec
tion of the Unionist party to force Mr.
Balfour to resign the leadership of the
Opposition. ; He is roundly blamed for
all the defeats which in the last five
years ' have fallen, to the lot of the
Unionists. Under Mr. Balfour the party
has had to stand the cost of three gen
eral elections hand running.
Influential Unionist organs like "The
World" and "The National Review"
frankly admit that bo long as Mr. Bal
fcur retains the leadership there is little
hope of the party regaining its influ
ence in stat<* or national affairs.
'The Review" says Mr. Balfour has
the fatal defect in a democratic leader
of talking language which the people
cannot understand and of being as com
pletely out of touch with "the man in
the street" as "the man in the street"
i-_; out of touch with him.
"The World" feels bound to acknowl
edge that in the last election campaign
Mr. Balfour went from weakness to

tion to another until his most faithful
followers were left in confusion and

Commuters Ride on Train Hav

Another woe was added to the life of
the commuters on the New York Cen
tral last night, when the 4:37 o'clock
train was sent out from tKe Grand Cen
tral Station without any gas in the cars.
The only illumination was a lantern
hung in the centre of each car. Old
time commuters recalled the days of oil
lamps and candles, but the more recent
commuters did not welcome the latest
innovation of the Central.
Newspapers had to go unread, and the
general topic of conversation was the
woes of the commuter. One advantage
that the new system did have for trav
ellers was that no passenger above
Yonk'jrs had to pay any carfare. All
looked alike to the conductor in the dark.

CANDIDACY FOR SENATE
Petition from Buffalo Democrats
to Run Draws Forth
GIVES HIS VIEWS ON ISSUES
Report Has It Murphy Has No
Objection — Call Out for a
Meeting Said To Be in
Interest of Shepard.
In a letter addressed to Mayor Louis
P. Fuhrmann of Buffalo William F.
Shrehan formally placed himself before
the public yesterday as a candidate for
election to the Inited States Senate.
The letter .vas sent in reply to one
signed by Mayor Fuhrmann and other
Buffalo Democrats asking Mr. Sheehan
to stand for the Senate.
Mr. Sheehan may have had in mind
certain criticisms of his record that have
appeared recently when he said it was a
serious responsibility to speak or write
unjust criticisms of a candidate.
Mr. Sheehan declared that he believed
in the letter and the spirit of the Roches
ter platform, that he was in favor of the
downward revision of the tariff, that he
would approach any necessary change in
the Sherman anti-trus«. law with no pur
pose to serve except the welfare of the
common country, that government reg
ulation of railroads should be accepted
as a settled policy, but that care should
be taken not to infringe on the rights of
Applauding the efforts that are being
made for international p«»ace. Mr. Shee
han said he believed in the further
strengthening of the navy in order to
maintain peace. He declared he had no
patience with members of Congress who
repeatedly submitted to executive dicta
tion, and that he believed in the parcels
post and in conservation.
Setting forth his belief that the federal
government should have the power to
impose an income tax. Mr. Sheehan
added that it should not be made a cloak
for further governmental extravagances.
Sinks Own View for that of Party.
Personally not in favor of the election
of I'nited States Senators by popular
vote, Mr. Sheehan said he accepted the
declaration of his party in favor of it.
The letter of Mr. Sheehan in full was
It is with satisfaction, and I trust with
pardonable pride, that I embrace the op-,
portunity which you. and other old neigh
bors and friends in the city of Buffalo have
given me of saying that I consent to the
consideration of my name for the United
States Senatorship. A serious and candid
discussion of all worthy and available men
(and there are many of them) is desirable,
and if conducted along: correct and. legiti
mate lines will result in good to the party
and the state. No one should object to a
fair and calm presentation of the "reasons
that exist fbr or against fnf> selection of
any man whose -name is under considera
tion. We' are fortunate that the time has
not yet come when loyalty to and belief in
efficient political organization and unosten
tatious labor, -even more assiduous in days
i of darkness than In time of sunshine, shall
of themselves necessarily create disqualifi
cation for exalted trust:
In considering fitness and qualification
for this high public station it should be
borne in mind by those who speak and
write that unjust or partisan criticism of
! a candidate may so so far as to weaken
or impair the usefulness of an official for
real public service. If a candidate be
honest, if he be capable of disinterested
and intelligent public service, if his char
acter, is at constant war with injustice and
wrong, if his aspirations are nurtured by
the love of humanity and vitalized by the
spirit of true Americanism, it is a serious
responsibility to attempt to lead, the pub
lic to think otherwise. The wrong to the
individual is personal, but the injury to
the state and nation may be of conse
quence-. Within our party are many men
who easily reach this standard. Pre
sumably, and I believe certainly, some
such person will be chosen; therefore, let
us say and do nothing now that win with
out justifiable cause weaken or injure the
| capacity for public service of the man
Into whoso hands our honor and our in
terests will be placed on March 4 next.
Adheres to Party Principles.
To me the principles of. our party are
real, moving, living things; to those prin
ciples, as 1 conceive them, I have never
been faithless, and neither the desire for
office, the promise of office, nor the pea
session of office will alter that faith.
It is not possible to state my attitude on
public Questions more clearly than to say
that, as one of those who had directly to
do with it. I believe in the letter and spirit
of the party platform adopted at Rochester.
; 1 am in favor of a Luna fide downward re
' vision of the tariff, so framed that the
multitude who suffer shall be first relieved.
T would approach the solution of this prob
lem without heat or passion, and with a
desire to cause the least possible disturb
ance to tlio industries of the country. The
interest of the man who labors and the
rights of capital should he and will be
safe in the hands of our party's representa
tives. Hut it is Quite inconceivable to me
that "wrong cannot be righted and uncon
scionable privilege removed without hurt
to legitimate trade and commerce. T do not
share in the fear of those who think that
Democratic representatives cannot be trust
ed to enact tariff laws under which the na
lional. commercial and industrial develop
ment of our country shall continue. ■ • •
Trusts and combinations that control tho
necessaries of life and increase the cost of
living arc largely the result of excessive
protective duties. These, combined with an
extravagance in governmental expenditure
v;hi lly 'disconnected with necessary and
patriotic outlay, have brought serious in
jury to the people. Before long we shall
have judicial interpretation by our highest
court as to the extent to which combina
tions Of capital may go. For the immediate
present that momentous question has been
removed from the domain of politics. If
when the decision comes it is necessary
that Congress shall further legislate I
shall, if a member of that body, approach
tho solution or the question In the spirit of
the broadest patriotism, with no master to
direct ami no purpose to serve- except the
welfare of our common country.
Favors Regulation of Railroads.
The governmental regulation of interstate
railroads Is and should tie accepted as part
of our settled policy, -and It is to be hoped
that the recent enactments of Congress,
made irrespective of parly lines, will prove
efficient and satisfactory. We must, how
ever. b» very careful lest under the guise
of federal regulation, encroachments, in-
Bidicus or otherwise, be attempted against
the constitutional rights of the sovereign
states. Every such effort, as well as every
atten.pt to make thrift and legitimate en
terprise the pliant or subservient tool of
rertrallsed federal political authority, will
meet my earnest and wholehearted opposf-
In common with our people. I rejoice in
the world-wide efforts to bring about uni
versal peace by the. prevention of wars,
and the work of individuals and associa
tions and the efforts of our own govern
ment In that direction are most com
mendable, Out of it all In good time there
will I believe, come an international court
that will settle the controversies between
nations as our own Supreme Court dis
poses of disputes between states. Until
this' time conies, and in the spirit of true
patriotism and with no thought of jingo
ism. I. for one, would heed the old Baying.
••Put your trust in God and keep your
powder dry." It .is the boy, the man and
the. nation that are beyond all question
strong enough to resist attack who find it

the management refused to keep a

a manner as to make it practically im
possible to audit them. By this method
of accounting, the bank, without de

the interest added to the note at the
time of renewal. This interest on worth

ROBIN HEADS TO
If Unable To Be in Court Judge
Will Go to Sister's House,
Where He Is Prisoner.
FRAUD OF $80,000 ALLEGED
j Confidential Man Testifies Con
cerning Methods Said to '
Have Been Employed
The turbulent affairs of Joseph O.
Robin, erstwhile endless chain financier,
; reached a crisis yesterday when he was
j Indicted by the grand jury for the lar- .
ceny of ?SO,OOO from the Washington
Savings Bank, at st)th street and Colum
bus Circle, of which he -was president.
Previous to his indictment the State*
j Banking Department took possession of
the savings bank and closed it 3 doors
to business pending a further investiga
tion into its condition.
The testimony adduced by witnesses
before the grand Jury and -at the prior
investigation conducted by Chief Ex
aminer Hughe?, of the State Insurance,
Department, upon which the Robin in
dictment was based, disclosed a. star
tling series of irregular transactions in
which the witnesses said that Robin and
I the savings bank officials were involved,
and indicated, as far as it went, that
Robin's alleged peculations from tho
bank amount to about 5150,000. •
District Attorney Whitman said las*
night that he expected other indictments
would soon be filed against Robin and
others implicated In the matter.
Robin was a prisoner last night at th«
home of his sister. Dr. Louise Robins

from the District Attorney's office. With
the consent of the District Attorney. h»
was produced there by Ills counsel,
former District Attorney Jerome, yester
day afternoon, and formally placed under
arrest. If he is able to go to court to
day he will plead to the indictment be
fore Judge Craln, in Part I of GeneraJ
Sessions, where the indictment was filed
when the December grand jury dis
banded at 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Physicians Take a Look at Him.
Dr. William Mabon, superintendent of
the Manhattan . State Hospital, on
Ward's Island, acting- for the District
Attorney, examined Robin a3 to Mi
mental and physical condition late yes
terday afternoon. Dr. Austin Flint, who
had been called on behalf of th*> pris
"oner, and Mr. Jerome were present dur
ing the examination.
Whether Robin will be compelled to
plead in court to-day -will depend on
Dr. Mabon's report to the District At
torney- Should it be found that his
condition is too serious to warrant his
being taken to court at present, Judge
Cram probably will go to the Kobino
witch home and attend to the formali
ties •of pleading and bail, which was
tentatively fixed yesterday. at ?25,000.
As former District Attorney Jerom*
left the Robinowitch house late last
night he said that he was surprised that ,
Mr. Whitman intended to compel him to
produce his client in court to-day. He
said he understood that the District At
torney would give him a week in which
to arrange for bail and prepare for
'Long Island Traction is responsible
for Robin's present predicament." h»
said. "They are jealous that he has in
vaded the traction field there. There '"«
not a dollar shortage for which Robin
will not be able to account."
Mr. Jerome added that he believed
his client was mentally unsound.
Robin's whereabouts since ■« "as
turned out of Dr. Carlos Ma. dor..-, |
sanatorium, at Central Valley, on Tues
day and supposedly returned to tht'
city with his sister, was known only to
his counsel and relatives. District At
torney Whitman was satisfied with Mr.
Jerome's assurance that he would pro
duce his client when he was wanted.
Mr. Whitman said last night that he .
did not know where Robin had been kept
in hiding since Tuesday. Mr. J rorn*
declined to say where Robin bad been,
and the latter** reappearance yesterday
was as sensational as Mi flitting away.
Pursuant to Mr. Jerome's promise in
court Robin was taken to his sister
home In an automobile shortly after ♦
o'clock. Robin sat in the tonneau be
tween his sister and another woman,
and a negro was on the seat with th
chauffeur. Robin wore a cap. which was
pulled down over his eyes, and a lei
overcoat. The two women emerged from
the car and helped Robin to get out.
They supported him as he walked into
the house. The negro followed them »
with two large suitcases.
Robin Placed Under Arrest.

District Attorney's office, were on hand

Judge Grain on Robin. formally placin.se
him under arrest. Robin was put t
bed, and the detective?, reinforced by
Detective Thomas, arranged to take up

the defendant's room.
District Attorney Whitman decided to
make a quick move In the case, instead
of letting it go over for the considera
