That committee in a .report said: "The bill now includes those par? ticular farm products which have been hardest hit. To add other products might destroy to some extent the emergency character of the bill, which is the theory upon which tho bill is being pressed for quick action by Congress and in advance of tariff hearings, VVe believe it will be the best plan, considering the position of the consumers and manufacturers, to make the bill not only emergency in name but emergency ?n fact." Minority Report Assails Hill Representative Rainey, in a minority report, from the Ways and Means Com? mittee, sharply opposed the hill. Ho maintained the agricultural interests of this country would not be benefited by it, hut that it would react against them. He said about all the wheat had come from Canada this season that would come in, and if a tar iff were imposed it would he used by the mu? lera as an excuso to raise the cost of flour to consumers. Such a tariff hill, he held, could not benefit the consumer and had in it danger of retaliatory tariffs. He in sisted.that the best way to help condi? tions Tiere was to" promote trade with F.urope and givo Europe a chance to pay off the enormous sums it owes this country by sending in goods, since it has no money to pay.

Senator Hitchcock, of Nebraska, de? clared he was opposed to putting bar? riers in the way of trade.

ADVERTISEMENT To the Editor of The New York Tribune : The fu et s: in reparu to the relations as Teacher and student, which have existed for many years between Mary Raker Eddy, the. Discoverer of Christ .Jesus' spiritual power to overcome sin and death 1 repeat, the relations which have existed between Mary Raker Eddv and her student, Augusta E, Stetson, which were published in your columns on Sunday, Decem? ber 19th, including many facsimile letters of Mrs. Eddy, have been p source of enlightenment and relief tc thousands who were ignorant of th< facts concerning Mrs, Stetson's exeoni munication from the Roston Church bj th? board of directors, which occurret eleven years aro. The reason for the excommunicatioi of a woman whose Christian life, dur ?ng a residence of move than thirt; years ir, New- York City, has bee known to all, was a mystery ?o lh people.

There is no reality in ' phenomena of sin. sickness, death, s row or discord of any name or natu They are the result of the carnal m and not the Mind of Christ. These discordant conditions Christian Scientists claim ?re the suit of sin, and to them sin is a he) of life and intelligence in matter. we understand it, they ?nterp Christ's words "whosoever liveth ? believeth in me shall never die" mean, he that com ni it:s sin must m the penalty in suffering and finally death.

Now. this teaching pea's to those who are anxious to c their health an?! harmonious eonditi In homes and in business theref ?so many adh?rents to the theory Christian ?Science, and they aflirm ' ?t is demonstrable. No Christian would deny that J? possessed a certain mental po? which destroyed sin and suffering nt last made Him victor over d< and the grave. Mrs. Eddy's theorj the Science of demonstrable Ti should engage the attention of hun ity. It appeals to us as emancipa from mental ?lavery, the ca thoughts to which Paul referred w he wrote, "to he carnally minder death; hut to he spiritually minde 1 ? f o and peace." The contention apparent in Stetson's case comes from the fact she declares that she is ?ramo which is the basic theory of Chrif Science. On this foundation-rock seems to have stood for more thirty year-, immovable in her wnt against "in, sickness and death, First Church of Christ, Scientist, New York Citv Built by Augusto /?,'.

Il is evident from the facs?mil?' el ters of Mrs. Eddy to her pupil, Mrs. Stetson, that Mr-. Eddy believed she r-oua] make of Mrs. Stetson, whose ?piritual -ens?, was highly developed, a demonstrator of Christ's teachings, which Mrs. Eddy discovered and found? ed on the rock. Christ. Mrs. Eddy's confidence in Mrs. Stetson's Christian character and ability to comprehend and demonstrated the sinrituol fuel of her i.Mi-.. Eddy's i teachings, ?s attested, according to report, !>.-. over four hun? dred lett? is. a f< w of which I quutc fi un? ? !i?- i-olum ns uf your paper, They a i.al '. u m? . and m usl con? vince all who are unprejudiced, that Mrs. Stetson understands, teaches and demonsl rates 11 ue Chri *tian Science as * night In Mary Raker Eddy. I quote a few letters in confirmai 01 my convictions regarding Mrs. Eddy's guidance of Mrs. Stetson out of tin mental materia! world of sin, sickness and death, into the spiritual thoughts or world which will enable a Christian Scientist to demonstrate immortality or an endless life, according tn the proof which Jesus gave to the world in His triumph over death. Mrs. Eddy wrote: "Your dear letter assuring me ?if your compliance with the "strict demand, 'Come oui ?"rom the world ami lie ye separate' in the sense of science comforts me;" and Mrs. Stetson's reply that she was ready, speaks for itself. At another time Mrs. Eddy wrote Mrs. Stetson: "Do not ullou the evil one in your midst to turn you away from me in this hour of cruci? fixion, or history will repeal itself, and Christian Science will once mon- In lost as aforetime." Evidently Mrs Stetson regards this as a sacred charg? entrusted to her. and she is defending the teachings of Christ Jesus and Mar;. Baker Eddy, that man is spiritual, im mortal, and that death is therefore ar illusion, the effect of carnal thoughts. Mrs. Stetson's crue lixion for her de fense of spiritual thinking must b? near its end, for it is evident to a! that material foundations are crumb ling, and mortals who have not th? Christ min?l are fighting themselvei out of existence. I am willing to pre diet that Christian Science will neve again be lost, but will be the life-line which, ;f grasped by humanity, wi! draw them to th>- infinite Source o Being, eternal life and love, ? : ;| Christ moved in ]l?* triumph over th carnally minded who placed Han in : tomb. Again let me quote Mrs. Eddy to Mrs Stetson: "By adhering to His lonelj present highest idea of love you wil hold tn its Principle and be safe." Mi Eddy in that h'iiir was the highest vis'i ble idea of Principie I.ove. Again she wrote: "I have a fe\ moments to myself and my heart turn to you, with such gratitude for you in carryir.g out measures so important to the cause, that I must :?".'! ? how much I .'..??? you and that all of earth ami had?'? could never blind ai" t.? this fact. Xo sin.lent, no heine? ...a earth can change my true son-e of a n individual. No matter what i? sai?! ?o me i: cannot move me." ?? Anotiu*! affirmation of Mrs. K?l?ly to Mrs. Stetson i-: "We always unite on ?.ii- point, viz.. ?

Christian Science fol? lows: "Again, darling, I say mother love? you and appreciates your '? ??? ? tifie demonstration over my other stu? dents and the 'enter thou' that God Is speaking to you." Again, in these facsimile lettei-, Mrs. Eddy expresses her approbation: ' Have your students done as much for our I cause as ?/nil hnvr rlnnr? Well, you were my student, and what is best no eithi r nur ever I aught you." Another evidence of Mrs, Eddy's far ieein?2 wisdom is in her words, which follow, "How much you have ?lone and will yet do for our cause none know?; but me." Refore Mrs. Eddy left this plane ?f existence she wrote to Mrs. Stetson tlie following: "Darling rise each hour: now is the resurrection morn, and I want Augusta to be my Mary." It very evident that when Mrs. Eddy had finished her earth mission in what the materialists called death, Mrs. Stetson proved lo be her "Mary," for she declared throughout the press ut that time, and has declared ever since, thai Mrs. Eddy ha - not died, that she ros.- beyond the :?.,';li* ;. of ?nj of ::??. ' id? nis !.. \ - tiali ??? her, and I hat ? iiev must rise ? ,i spiritual sight ..r ? Ision which ? ill reveal Mrs, Edd> in the ?mage and likeness <,f her ('reato:?. ! ?fe and Love. Mrs. Stetson do iT>tless w II be the !???.<? to recognize Mrs. Eddy at her re? appearance, and will go, like Mary of ?hi, and "tell the brethren." May not Mrs. Eddy's students at some time rec? ognize their Leader. Mrs. Eddy, us did Jesus' disciples recognize their Teacher i n i lie walk to Em maus ? Let me quote again an extract from Mrs. Eddy's letters, which appeared in your columns: "i entrust you with mi? other momentous move, namely Our memori of Christian Science, that ??..? .??..< will look upon and be lifted up." May not that memorial he the spiritualised man. the type and sym? bol of which is the obelisk and its cap? stone, a pyramid on Mrs. Stetson's church at 9<itll Str.?.M and Central Park West, which Mis. Stetson am! her stu dents built ami inscribed aa "a tribute of l?>ve and gratitude" lo Mrs. Eddy, their Lender and Teacher? If Mrs, Eddy's letters to Augusta E, Stetson arc inspired by Truth and every true Christian Scientist believes that Mrs. Eddy's words are inspired then Mrs. Stetson must be a true fol? lower of Christ Jesus and Mary Raker Eddy and ?i demonstrator ?>f Christian Science, or immortality. 1' none are able to overcome sin, the result of which is sickness and death, the? Christian Science is no*, workable. Mrs. Stetson has for years asserted, and continues ;., assert, thai she and every one is immortal, thai Rod s 11 ? Source of if,., and that - sin, which she repudiates, can separate any one from the Source of th? ir being, Life and I.ova . Mrs. Eddy I iugh1 -si' her Muden? s to teach the world that there is no death and thai so lony as humanity sinned ?1 would pay its penalty in death.
