any of the greottngs yet extended to the star

tenor's name, and attached to It was an envel

at tho opera house that the donor was a wom

reveal the Idontity of the giver. Tho cast was

Nevertheless Mn. Chnrch Die Blessing
the Name or the I-ord.
Mrs. Charles Churoh. the boltever In faith
cure, otherwise known as divine healing, who
died at her home in Passaic on Monday last of
a canoer. was buried yesterday from the Ht
George Methodist Church, in thai city. Tho
death of Mrs. Church Is regarded as a blow to
the divine healing theory, for it is confessed
that greater faith had no woman than Mrs.
Church, nnd sho had all her life combined hor
faith with works. No woman was better
known in PasBaio for hor charity, her gocd
works, and hor many other vlrtueo than Sirs.
Church. She was a woman of intelligence,
and. it Is agrood. ot sound common sense, until
she acquired faith In latter-day mlrlc'.os.
Mrs. Church was 48 years old. Sho was born
In Chennngo county. N. Y. Sixteen yoars ago
elm went to Tassalc with hor husband. Dr.
Charles A. Church, a homoeopathic physician,
and said to be somethinz of a religious on
thuslust, Sho became a member of the Meth
odist church, a teachor In tho Sunday schsol.
was Dromlncnt In tho Ladles' Aid and Ladies'
Missionary Societies, and in tho Woman's
Clirlstfaa Temperance Union, tho Union Be
nevolent Society, and the Monday Aftornoon
Club. Those are just a few of the church so
cieties to which sho belongod. Sho first came
to believe In divine healing six yoars ago. Her
husband had pneumonia. Tholr son. Dr.
Church. Jr.. tells this story:
"The disease kopt growing worse untii it de
veloped Into gnlloping consumption. He tried
all sorts of remedios, but nonoof thorn worked,
lie wont to six of the best homoeopaths in this
State, but thoy all agreod that there was no
hopo for him. Ills lungs were almost solid
and we alt gavo him up. Then fatbor and
mother becamo acquainted with dlvlno heal
ing. 1 imnit u was turougu iruirio ui mt. uut
I'mnotsuie. Thoy looked ltupln the Bllilo
and believed In it And from that day ho be
gan to heal rapidly until ho was ablo to take
up his practice again, aud now no as strong
and healthy u you or I. What, did tho other
physicians say? Oh. thuy dldn t say nnyth ng.
What could thoy say? Of course, fathor laid
bin recovery to divine healing, and ho bas be
hoved In it over slncu."
Mrs. Church was llrst tnkon sick three yoars
ngo. Sho hud n caucor In hor breast She
prayed with faith that It would bo healed, but
It was not, and sho turned to her Bible and
road: "Is any among you afflicted let him
pray, lsanyslckumongyou lethlm call for
tho elders of tho church; and let them pray
ovor him. anointing him with oil in thenamo
of tlio Urd: and tho prayer of faith shall savo
the sick, and tho Lord shall raise hm up."
So sho called In tho pastor nnd tho elders of
hor church. Their faith was not equal to tho
iniunotion. Thny told her that the days of
mlniclos had passed; that Christ hud per
formed miracles merely to show Ills power at
the time Ho was disbelieved. Mrs. Church dis
missed these mon. It Is, relnlod. with prayers
that their fnlth should bo strengthened and
tholr unbelief should bo driven away. And
then sho cunio to Nuvv Wk und visited tho
ltev. Mr. Simpson's college und dlvlno
hoallng institute in Eighth .avenue. Thoro
she was nnnolntod with oil in tho name
of tho Lord, and she thought sho was
cured, but hor dlsoajo continued. Mrs.
Church always assorted that this anointing
took away Irom her tho pain sho had suffered.
Whllushogrow worse sliu continually said sho
had no pain. Her faith did not wane, but she
was compolled to toko to her bod. nnd she
never rose from It strong in hor faith as she
was. It was her husband's custom to kneel
dally by her bedside and pray for berrecovery.
bho spent her time reading her Bible and pon
dering on what she road. Hho would not take
medicine, bho would not pormlt an oporatlon
to bo performed, and she pruvod for more fulth
for all those who told her sho was foolish to
llo thore and die without mnklng un offort to
save herself. She waschoerful In hor suffer
inc. LnH Saturday morning the Kev. John
Crnwford, tho pastor of her churoh. and tho
ltev. Mr. Von Harchwltz called on her. Thoy
pnw that her end was near und they told her
so. Sheanxwered: ..,,,. ,
" I have faith that tho Lord will keep nis
promise But tho Lord's will bo dono. Blessed
is the name of tlio Lord." , . ..
She became partially unconscious shortly
nfterward. She did not ereak again. Her
nurso noticed a troubled breathing on Mon
day. She oalled Dr. Church, but before ho
reuohod the bedside the sufferor v;os dead. .
From 30U to 5U) persons attended the funeral
yesterday aftornoon. All but a few wcro
women. The servlco was conducted by the

Mrs. Osborno was dressed in blapk. Bho
looked terribly wan and worn, and sobbed
convulsively. She was in a pondltlon of soml
collapse. She glanced at lior husband, who
held up his hands toward hor In abesoocblng

breathless sllonce. and Cleric Avery said:
" Prisoner at the bar. do you pload guilty or

Mr. Forrest Fulton then addrossod tho Court
In bohalf of tho Government . Tho. chnrgo of

Then Mrs. Hargreavos sat down, weeping
almost hysterically.
The Judge, in passing sentence said:, , ,
"Florence Ethel Osborne, you havo pleaded
cutlty to larceny and perjury. You stole your
frlond's jewels while stopping at her house,
and converted the proooeds of the theft to
your own uso. When tho llngor of suspicion
pointed toward you as the thief, you com
menced an nctlon to vindicate your character.
You were guilty of swearing folsoly and cor
ruptly In order to convince the jury that you
were not tho thief, and you sat still Instruct
ing eminent counsel to the effect that your
friends wore the thieves. It would nave been
impossible to forecast the result of the action
but for tho appearance of an unexpected wit
ness, and possibly the Hargroaveti might have
been forever stained with Ignominy.
His lordship then sentenced Mrs. Osborne
to nine months' hard labor, which was to be

Naval OMeers Here Isellaed to Think UmI,
Hetherlsfflea Waa Inttiae.
George Orover Robinson, whom Lieut 3. W.
Hetherlngton. U. B. N., klllod on Feb. 12 for
his attentions to Mrs. Hetherlngton, was a
business man ot excellent standing In Yoko
hama, and also one of tho leaders of the
foreign society, Holwent to Yokohama several
rears axo 'rom England, and becamo cashier
of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank. As
soon as he had made a sufflotent acquaintance
he reslgnod from the bank and opened an
office as an exohnnge broker,
i aVaM'K Jfj9vfm.
Mrs. snsrc nawis mnriERrNiTo-.
He paid a good deal ot attention to his busi
ness, but did not let It interfere with his very
exacting social duties. Ho had a handsome fig
ure, and his face was much admired by women
deoptto the fact that he waxed his moustache.
Ho know how to ride, and In tho llttlo racos
got up by tho foreign sot he always rode In a
tightly fitting jookoy eostume,and carried no
end of boxes of candy and pairs ot gloves upon
his skill. Thore were a good many men who
did not like him bocause the women liked
him so welL These men said ho smiled too
Yokohoma and Shanghai are the two ports
In tho China station which naval officers are
fond ot visiting. As Yokohama Is tho princi
pal port of Japan, thoro Is always at loast ono
war vessel from each of tho naval powors
anchored In Its doop and beautiful harbor. As
the climato of Yokohama Ib delightful, and as
living is ohean. tho wlvos of naval officer of
all oountties mako it tholr home when their
husbands are on vessels cruising In tho China
station. Tho presence of the naval officers
nnd their wives makes tho large foreign colony
very cay. and any officer in tho United States
Navy will toll how much he liked Yokohama. If
he has been there, or if he has not, how much
he would like to be ordored thore.
.Vi? . VUhi B)
It seems that Llout Hetherlngton. who Is an
Iowa appointee but n few years out of tho Naval
Academy, was ordered on hia present cruise in
May of last year. Ho had got his promotion
to a Lioutennnoy of tho junior grade in Sep
tember of 18)i). and had been married u short
time afterward, so it is said. Mrs. Hetherlng
ton cannot havo been In Yokahama much
longer than since last fall, and the flirtation
with Mr. ltoblnson is of very recent date.
From tho story in the despatches of Mrs. Ad
miral Belknap s rocognlzingnnd advising Mrs.
Hetherlngton since the shooting, and of Mrs.
Hotherlngton's being Invited to a dinner in
Yokahama. it may beiuforrod that Yokahamu
society puU upon Mr. ltoblnson alone tho
blnmo for tho tender lettors in his handwriting
which Lieut Hetherlngton found, and accuses
Mrs. Hetherlngton of nothing more than
youtntul folly.
None of the naval officers here ts acquainted
with the Hethorlngtons, and none of them was
willing to express an opinion of the affair for
publication with his name. But tho sentiment
was that If Lieut Hothorington acted upon the
advlco ot his brother officers, be must have
had good ground for summarily putting an
end to Robinson. It appears that Mrs. Hether
lngton was a very beautiful as well as a very
foolish person, and that she had llttlo sonse ot
where the line should be drawn by a married
woman In receiving attentions from a
bachelor. "Even It sho didn't havo tho
senso." said a naval officer yesterday, "tho
man ltoblnson must havo known. And when
he set down in his own handwriting his lovo
for a married woman and addressod it to her.
he took his life into his hands. I think that
Llout Hctliorlngton showed great forbear
ance. The man persisted In trying to compro
ralso Mrs. Hetherlngton. and Llout Ilethor
Ington. as hor protector, could not In honor
longer refrain from ondlng Itoblnson's
caroer. He was probably one ot that
type of bachelors found everywhere,
always poaching, and novor happy unloss en
dangering the good namo ot some marrlod
woman and the domestic happiness ot two per
sons. I think that a woll-dlrectod bullet or
sword-thrust is tho only cure for such a per
son. Llout. Hotherlngton did his plain and
simple duty ns an ofllcor ot tho United States
Navy. HIb was conduct most besoming an
officer and a gontloman."

On the following day tho report was mado

Mr. Charles W. Dayton, as the representa
tive of tho proporty ownors In Harlom. brlofly
presented tho elovatod causeway or viaduct
plan which Is supportod In Harlem. It pro
poses to do away with tho plan of the bill
which would closo cortaln streotB by continuing
tho presont system of partially sunken tracks
and to substitute a viaduct much llko an elova
tod railway structure, which shall begin at
tho mouth of the tunnel and run by
nn easy grado up to Harlom bridge
as It Is to bo olevatod. This will
tako tho present Central and Harlem
tracks out ot tho tunnels and outs
they now run In and eorry them over and
abovo the present surface lines, and thus
allow all stroots to pusb freely underneath.
According to Mr. Dayton, tlio plan
would open olght or nine streets now
blocked nnd close none. The bill passed
ns it was, ho said, would destroy property
values in and about I'ark avonue, and cause
tho abandonment of the 1 25th street station,
