Fanatics Who Are Trjlng to
Live Without Sin.
la its issue of Sunday last, the 18th
inst., the Cincinnati Enquirer says
that during the past year numerous
meetings of a mysterious character
havt been held at the residence of
Mrs. Martin and Mrs. J. F. Brooke, a
sister ol Mrs. Maitin, on Walnut
lillle. All torte ol qseer stories were
circulated by the gossips, who in
sisted that the services were of a de
cidedly sacrilegious nature. The num
ber of attendants on the meetings
reached Ihir.y, among the group
being many heretofore prominent in
church work. Thiough the efforts of
an Enquire reror er, Hided by others,
the troth hag been bronght to light,
and the ng'y minora sent broadcast
have been confirmed. '
MM MARTIN IH WOlWHII'ltl) AH JEHUS
and Mrs Frookn, her sitter, is vener
ated as the Holy Ghost, by a little
band cf inipgiilded people. A day or
two ap.o, John O ok, employed at the
auditor's ollice of the Adams Ksprecs
Company, rdportrd for duty after sev
eral days' absence. He was an exem
plary voting man, and no tlioiiK'it that
tie bad been on a spree entered the.
mind of his employer. "'
"Where have you been CaokT was
kindly asked. '
"I had a call of d,ufy."
"(iod had work for mo ti perform,
and Ltliouldn't neglect it."
Iiow do you expect to get a liv
'Ing?" ' It will be provided just as tho
spiritual food from Uneven."
Cook declsied that he lived ia an
other sphere from the rest of tho world.
There was nothing here good enough
for him, and he felt perfectly happy.
The deluded young man received his
wage) and departed. His brother, who
works for the same cotnpAny, is very
much troubled about the matter. He
told the Enquirer that both his brother
and sister had become
rOLLOWKR OK MRS. MARTIN,
and that it was impossible to convince
them of the folly ol their conduct.
Their parents are at a loss what to do,
and have almost given up in despair.
Cook is a nice looking fellow about U5
?eara of ago, and until carried away by
his fanaticism was a faithful employe.
Another case of similar character is
that of EdwardS. Jerome, head book
keeper of the branch house of I).
Appleton A Co., on Klin street. He
abandoned his placo some time since,
at the dictation, it is claimed by his
friends, of Mrs. Mai tin, w ho has a
marvelous and absolute power over
her subjects. Jerome was receiving a
salary oi flrtOO per annum, and was
entirely coriect in IiIh accounts. The
man ia about 2X years of age, intelli
gent and of pleasing address.
Last night, as has been the
case every night for several
weeks, a mooting of the faithful
was held at the residence of Mrs. J.
K. Brooke, on Park avenue, Walnut
Hills. The beautiful residence is
situated on an eminence, and is ap
proached by a niu'ions lawn. Soated
on the front porch, which was lighted
ouly by the pile moon, were a num
ber of ladles and gentlemen engagod
in quiet conversation. Within the
from loams were dark, but in the rear
two rooms were brilliantly lighted
ou opposite sides of tho hall, l'eople
moved constant'' from one room to
nnother, and thete was an air of mys

and atvomplishtd daughter of Mr.

She was one of Mis. Martin's first con
vers, and Lai become entirely ab
sorbed in the fanaticism. Her mother
is almot overwhelmed with sotrow at
ber daughter's conduct. She has
used every ait to turn her from
htr purpose, Mrs. Andrees has,
in ber anxiety, often be on on the point
of hiring a detective to investigate
the doiiiua in the mysterious meetings,
but the law will not permit a private

crime has been committed, and no
a ich chatgo has ever been laid at the
door of the Martinitts.

subject. Said Mrj. A ml res i : "1 am

"Something. They believe that the
millennium is coming through Mrs.
Martin, who is God manifested In the

have to believe in her after awhile,
and that Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Brooke
are the only perfect women in the
world. They get around the qneitlon,
'Christie a man and Mis. Martin a
woman, how can she be Him,' by say
ing, 'There are no sexes in Heaven.'"
Miss Andresi and. in fact, all the
disciples of the new Christ, go about
muniDiing Hymns and doing other pe
culiar things. They cover take their

for the worldly man or woman. Ju'y
4th the Perfect had a picnic at Eden
Park, for which Miss Andrees baked
sixty-two cakes. The others contrib
uted their share of the eatablee. Every
one of the converts has covered his or
her connection with church. A ma
jority of this sect were formerly Meth
odists, but few, notably the Carpen

antipUhy of the Martinites to the
o'ber rtlgoin denominations bm
doubtbsi provoked niunv of the un
pleasant suiiies told abut them.
MR AND MU8. J. F. DBOOKK
The exct lelatlon which Mis. B.
sustains to the strange religion tan
not be exictly determined. It is cer
tain that the noldsa place second only
to her sister, Mrs. Martin. From in
formation gleaned it is reasonable to
suppose that ane is little abort of a
deity. Outsiders declare that the
Holy Ghost is made manifest through
Mrs. Brooke, but this statement lacks
confirmation. Mrs. Andreea and
others, huwever, declare that she ia a
perfect woman, aanctitied and beyond
possibility of sin. Mr. Brooke follows
his wife ia the enterprise. He is a
man of intelligence and influence, and
was claea leader and trustee in the
Walnut Hills Methodist Episcopal
Church. A member of that congrega
tion, who ought to know, staled that
Mr. Brooke was deprived of his ollice
because of bis failure to attend church,
prejumab'y on account of his infatua
tion with the tenets of the ''Per
fect" and elect under tho leadership
of his sister in-law and wife Mrs. John
B. Martin, who is deecribed ss a me
dium sized woman, of an active, ner
vous tomperament. Mie is fervent to
such an extent that hr religious views
are carried into the most ordinary af
fairs of life. Her personal appearance
is rather prepossessing, and bhe is i&
devoted wife and mother.
11 Bit lll'HIIASJsf'
it is reported, lakes U(f stock in the to
called delfica'ioti of his wife. He is a
strict -Motritilitt and well known ad
herent of the Prohibition party,
having been a candidate for Congress
in tho Flint District two years ago. It
was customary in the early days of the
movement to hold the services at the
different homes of the faithful, but
principally at Mrs. Martin's residence.
The little band grew to such fropor
tions that it became necessary to lind
larger rooms, and Mrs. Brooke ten
dered her hou'e. which for several
weeks bss bten the regular meeting
place. J t is not aseserled that Mrs. Mar
tin proclaims heiself to be Christ in the
spirit, but that her followers are
grounded firmly in that belief is a
fixed fact. The neighbors of the Mar
tins relate strange tales about them.
One of these is that when ono of the
children was very sick Mr. Martin
wanted to send for a doctor, but bis
wife remonstrated. The little one v, as
inOod's hands and he would take
care of it. She predicted tbat if a phy
sician came in the hoiuo the child
wonld dio, but Mr. Martin, uncon
vinced, sent for a doctor, and tho
prophecy of Mrs. Martin cauio to pass,
for the Infant died. This incident was
used by the elect as conclusive proof
of her divine character. Whataver
the world outside of tho coterie of fa
natics may think of Mrs. Martin, she
surely exercises an irresistible power
over her disciples, who would obey
her every wish without a murmur. If
Bhe directs them, Christ's Spirit acting
through her, they joyfully do the
bidding. $mdl ,m7i
MBS. MARTIN A SANCTIKICATIONIST.
The so called spiritual Christ is well
known on Walnut Hills. She was he
fore her tnarrisga Miss Hannah Sup
ple, of Philadelphia, Pa. She came
west with her father and mother, who
reside on Walnut Hills with their
other daughter, Mis. John F. Brooke.
It was ascertained yesterday that the
father and mother are also devotees at
the shrine of their tiod like daughter.
11. M. Supple, a brother, is a citizen of
Cummlnsville. Mra. Martin was mar
ried to John B. Martin about ton years
ago. Sho is now between it I and 35
years of age. A prominent gentleman,
who was lornierly a beau otMra. Mar
tin's, says that she is a woman of only
ordinary intelligence, but a glib talker
and'woudorftilly well posted on the
Bible, being able to quote pnssagos
of Scripture on nearly every
question. She is tmlijoct to vio
lent nervous excitement, and has
ou several occasions been nlniobt
frantic in revivals. Mra. Martin is a
woman of isms. She was several years
ago a firm believer in sanctiflcation, a
peculiar tenet held by some members
of the Molhodist church, and latterly
she was a zalot in the faith euro
mania. The lady 1h eccentric to a
notable degree, and her present wild
fancies, which have so deeply per
meated' ot lmr, seem to be the logical
outcome of her previous strange no
tions. THIS IllHTOKY OF TUB I'RKSBNT KBLIOIOI'S
which is, in the minds of its disciples,
bound to redeem the world, is closely
intwined with the religious career of
ils leader. All the perfect were "sane
tiflcationists," and many of thorn were
carried away by the faith euro. It Is
qui'o dillicult to clearly detloo the
faith of the Mattinites, except to the
extent that they regard Mrs. Martfn as
their divine teacher, through whom
God is reveal 6il, and that her sister,
Mrs. Brooke, the only other perfect
woman that has ever lived 'as that part
of the Trinity which theologians des
ignate as the Holy Ghost. Yesterday
afternoon the faithful met at the
II ook e residence. The entire band,
with one or two exceptions, were pres
ent. Several ladles and gentlemen,
among them Mrs. Flora Miller. Miss
Maygie Andrews, Mr. Brooke and MIrs
Nellie DevenhofI, whoso name was
omitted yesterday, were seatod on the
shady portico which runs across the
front of the house. They were found
In parties of two and three, and were
evidently engaged in conversation.
Till I'KHKECTIONIST UOCTRINK,
"What." said an Enquirer repoiter
13 Mis. Miller, who is recognized as
one of the most intelligent and enthu
s'as:ic of the peculiar sect, "is the
foundation doctrine of your hew be
lief.'" "I'll ten you in a nutshell," replied
Mrs. Miller, and thereupon she pro
ceeded with a confused statement
which a Philadelphia lawyer could not
make intelligible. She claimed that
people can live without sin for if they
cannot, Hod's moral universe is a fail
ure. He holds us responsible for that
which we are unable to avoid. The
preachers and churches declare that
sin must exist in every one, and on
this point the "Perfect severed their
connection with all denominations
which promulgate such a pernicious
doctrine. Mrs. Miller and her core
ligionists claim to live perfect lives.
The lady said : "Death is the result of
sin; where there Is no sin there can
be to death, and we shall not die."
"How about Mra. Martin, is she di
vine?" Mrs. Milter rather hesitated and was
confused, for thia is dangerous ground.
Finally she responded to the question :
"We think Mrs. Martin has lived a
life of holiness longer than any of the
rest of us and is best fitted to be our
teacher. She U the most perfect in
fact, the only perfect woman that ever
' Do yon believe that she is Christ?"
"N o, but she is possessed of His
spirit, and He speaks through her."
"And Mrs. Brooke"
Just at this interesting juncture
Mrs. Miller wis called in the bouse to
paiticipate in the mysterious services
which were held at frequent intervals
during the dy and until early morn
ing. Mr. Miller admitted during her
far from lucid explanation of her faith
that none but the perfect con'd enter
their fs'emblies, and she avoided fay
ing anything as to their tature and
UNFA VOKADLI RIM ARKS AND SUSPICIONS
Much unfavorable remark has bean
caused by the secrecy with which the
coterie carry on their proceedings.
For all the uninitiated know, the wild
est fetishes and incantations prevail,
but the splendid social standing of
Mrs. Martin's thirty worshipers pre
cludes the possibility of anything of
that character. Yet, there are those
who have serious doubts that every
thing is cquare. If the devotees of
the two women would bnt lift the veil
to allow skeptics to peer behind the
curtains nnjust suspicions would per
haps vanish. The Martinltes profess
to be guided by the light ol the truta,
bnt no Matonlc Lodge on earth is
more exacting in its requirements for
admission than the coteries of Perfect
or Sanctified Saints on Walnut Hills.
Several believers whose names were
not obtainable yesterday are here

Not the least Impressive featura
among the fanatics is the close bond
of friendship or infatuation which
binds them to each other as well as
their oracle, Mrs. Martin. They will
not associate with any one out3ide the
society, and they never visit their old
friends as was customary before the
frenzy seized them. It is a practice
among them to exchange photographs,
which are usually preserved in an
album and hidden awav from the mo t
intimate members of the deluded
enthusiasts' family. It is stated by the
mother of one of the young ladies in
volved in the superstitious folly, that
during the past week her daughter has
only been home once, and then Bhe
remained only long enough to partake
of a hasty breakfast before returning
to her devotions. This girl, and the
same statement will apply to all, is
perfectly bewitched by the supposed
Godly character of Mrs" Martin. They
boldly proclaim that their Christ will

The disciples asjtiu.bl9 in the front
room of the houso, on the second floor.
The apartment is but dimly lighted,
and the occupants have difficulty in
distinguishing each other's faces. Mrs.
Martin, the divinity, occupies a seat in
the center or at the end of the room,
with an open Bible in her hand. She
is surrounded by tho perfect, who
begin singing in a low tone, full of
emotion and tenderness. As tho sing
dies away, another is taken up and
Btill another, until the participants
seem suit lied. The deity is silent
until the music is ended, and then ehe
chants a passage from the Bible in
strange weird cadences, which causes
the listeners to feel a sott of uncon
trollable ecstasy. Sometimes Mis.
Martin quotes porsagcB of Scripture
in ber natural voice, Riid again the
clcses the precious Book with the re
mark: "I have nothing for you to

worshipers frequently fall upon their
knees and kiss her hands and face in
a paroxysm of joy. A service probably
of this description was going on in that
spcond-story front room Itst night.
Two men stood close under the south

premises. There appeared to be noout

lich in soulfulness, and of inexpressi
ble sweet neeB. The voices blended in
almost divine harmony, and the vo
calists sang with the must intense but
suppressed fervor. After four or five
songs had been rendered a hymn was
sung to the tune of Home, Surft Home.
It reverberated upon the stilly night,
and pedestrians on their way home
paused to listen, chained to the spot
spell bound while the delicious music
lasted. A shadowy form of a woman
kept vigil at a window, as if fearful of
eavesdroppers, while two of the elect
were in the portico, presumably de
tailed to prevent interruption from
that quarter. Presently a low noise,
as of a person in distress, was heard,
and this was followed by a regular
sound, produced in all probability by
some one reading in measured, solemn
cadences. The silence reigned for a
few moments, and the dark nouse was
to all intents deserted. The singing
was resumed, followed at a short in
terval by peculiar incantations from
the central figure of the group. These
weird manifestations led the two men
to the conclusion, naturally enough,
that an' element of spiritualism en
tered into the worship of
these people. The darkened room, the
periods of absolute silence, the oc
casional strange sounds suggested the
idea that the claim mado by Mr,
Jerome to the Enquirer man was
actually taking place the Martinltes
were seeing God face to free. The
services, or whatever the unknown
proceedings may be termed, were con
tinued until near midnight, being at
their bight about 10:30 o'clock.
8EVKRAI. FORMS FLITTED ACROSS THS

behind as guests of the Brookes, and
the Sunday night communion with the
Almighty through His earthly repre
sentative was over. One of the di
votees remarked yesterday that this
was the jubilee time of the society,
and that hereafter, she intimated, the
gatherings would be less frequent.
"The opinion of substantial Christian
people," said the Rev. F. H. Monfort,
pastor of the First Presbyterian
Church, "is that these misguided folks
are practicing the veriest folly. In
