tn the death of Francis Schlatter, solf-slyled
"the Healer," there Is lost the central flguro of
a remarkable latter day phenomenon. This
phenomenon was the pllgrlmago for It vras
nothing else of thousands of people of all de
fy Krocs of position and Intelligence to b cured bjr
an Ignorant Herman cobbler, of whom probably
not ono of the thousands had eror hoard six
months provlous to tho beginning of his "mis
sion." That tho man hail n wonderful power of
Influencing and controlling his followmen there
c;in t)) no doubt, and It Is to this faculty
tint smb. of his cures as were nuthen
tlc.tted can bo traced. Had ho willed
It lio might havo had a crusado like
l'etor tlio Hermit, or bulldod a religion as Mo
hiinined did, or n Stnlo as lirlgham Young did,
k' or a fortuno as well, as more than one preacher
hat done. Hut ho had neither Uio ambition of
the crusader, tho prophet, tho autocrat, or tho
tuoncr getter, and his doath by starvation tn a
desert Is a characteristic as his life of what the
man was, n fanatic, pure and simple, a mono
maniac whose faith lu himself and his mission
wasovcm helming.
i l'crtnpi ho would have achieved nothing mora
( )han local famo as a peculiar religious maniac
J bad not his faco homo a strong rcsemblanco to
the claslo pictures of Christ. Ills first appear
ance was among the inteuscly religious and
superstitious Moxlcans of New Mexico in July,
Isl'5. Inspiration Itself could hare hit upon no
zuoro fitting place for tho outset of the career to
which he had been "called by Fathor." To him
the Pclty was "Father." A Mexican girl In
one of the Tillages, crippled, deformed, sickly,
hud been nut aside by her family to die.
To the mother of tho girl camo a strange
man with a spreading beard, long hair,
D and kindly eyes; n man of so benign and
ttntle an aspect that tho woman thought the
picture of tho Christ In the village church
had been Tlvlflcd and had stepped forth. There
fore w hen tho stranger offered to cure her little
rlrl she fell upon her knees and worshipped
Elia. not for a moment doubting that he had the
power. For a few moments the man held the
bands of tho crippled child in his, closing his
Den In prayer. The next dar tho child was
Hulking upright, cured of her affliction.
I At least such was tho story that flow from
house to house among tbe Mexicans. Incredulity
and scorn answered It, but the hopeless saw in
it a ray of hope. Others came to Schlatter, and
many who cams were made converts to sproad
abroad the famo of tho Healer. Dlsenio which
tad baffled the doctors appeared to depart un
der tho exorcism of this strange person. People
from other places began coming to him. Phy
sician admitted the apparent alleviation in
cases of illness submitted to tho simple prayer
and touch of tho man.
Tl hen Schlatter went to Albuquerque his fame
had preceded him. Up to this time most of his
patients had been Mexicans, but now Americana
txcan to come socking his aid. among them Ed
ward Fox, a business man of Denver, who was
r offering from a steadily Increasing deafness.
Jndcr Schlatter's treatment be improved, and,
after returning home, secured a promise from
is the lleulor that he would visit tho Vox home in
j iJcnver. Schlatter fasted for forty days, a fact
a sumclentlr well authenticated, and went on to
M Denver, wnero. after two weeks' rest, he began
his remarkablo scries of cures.
By this time tho telegraph wires had spread
the famo of the Ucnlcr over tho length and
breadth of tho country, and over the length and
breadth of tho country travelled those who,
finding no hope elsewhere, staked their last
chance on a mlraclo. These gathered, at
first by scores, then by hundreds, then
br thousands, as the stories of the mirac
ulous achievements grew, and from 9 A. M.
until 4 P. M. the lino passed by Schlatter on a
narrow sidewalk built for that purpose, and he,
landing behind tho f onoe, leaned over and took
the hands of the patients while he prayed with
each one. He also blessed handkerchiefs, caps,
and other articles, to be used as) instruments of
healing.
"It Is as tho Father wills," was his unvarying
reply to the appeals. " Have faith."
To all expressions of thanks he said simply :
I "It Is not mo that does It. Thank Father.
In the same spirit he refused to take money.
When it was sent to him he sent it back. The
only gift ho Is known to have accepted was the
corduroy suit which he wore while receiving his
-patients, the suit which he wore on hli arrival
being worn out. It was this absolute Indiffer
ence to money that settled any doubts as to the
genuineness of the man's belief In his mission.
No man ever had a moro certain faith In him
self. That is the almost unanimous opin
ion of all with whom bo camo in con
tact. Crazy or sane, he was absolutely honest.
From Sept. 10 to Nov. 13, 1803. ho held audi
ences at Denver every day, Sundays excepted,
standing in the rain for hours without com
plaint or apparent weariness. At first in urgent
cotes he would leave his place and make his wav
through the crowd to a carriage, where aome
person unable to come to him was eagerly wait
ing, but later be refused to leave his place on
any. account People took their places before
J sunrise and stood in line for hours waiting for
nlm to appear, and these not strong people well
I able to endure tho exposure and fatigue, but
I cripples, neurotics, consumptives, and sufferer
from all varieties of ills.
How many cures were really effected by the
man it Is Impossible to say. Impartial investi
gators tried to trace out cases, and found them
selves mazed In a labyrinth of Indefinite rumors.
Often skeptics went directly, as a role, to the
scene of Schlatter's audiences, and, as a rule,
came away cither skeptical of tbelr own skep
ticism or convinced of the Healer's power.
Thousands of coses that were told of could
apt be traced, hut there were many, on
the other hnnd, whero the sufferers them
selves testified to tho relief afforded by
the Healer. In almost every case, however.
It wan relief and not cure. Ono of tho
most remarkable of the well-authenticated
caes was that of a woman who for years had
suffered from an affection of tbo heart, which
rendered her unable to take solid food and
rained extreme weakness. For two years sho
Bad been unable to walk any distance, and very
light exertion brought on fainting spells; also
she was almost blind. A few days after Schlat
ter s arrhal she was taken out driving, and
when near the Fox resirlonre bad a se ere at
tack of heart failure. Her friends drove up as
near to tho Healer as possible and begged him
toj-ome out to tho suffering woman, which be
did. Her description or her sensations under
LIS treilment 1b kh fM Intra
AH looked black to me and I saw no hope,
"lien he took my bands I felt that something
strange was happening. Suddenly I felt a very
V, sharp pain In mr right side, in a place whero I
ttj ptver before had experienced pain. It eeeiuod

ft that point. As tho pain went the Healer said.

nads. That was tbe last trouble I havo experi

la-day I read the newspapers foran hour. Yes
temo) I walked a mile with case. 1 eat with
Jtllsh, and I know I nin on tho road to health
andstrcngth."
Score r of cases of relief from suffering through
Schlatter could bo cited, but thoro is no proof of
nr cures of absolute blindness or deafness or
similar ailments. Nearly tho entire popula
tion of Denvor were his adherents, however, and
t-.oovvhodidnotbellevo in his power had this
argument lu his favor, that ho had done good to
rasny men and harm to none. Ministers hold
, mm up ob an example of pure and solf-sacriflclng
manhood, and whero ho was not loved and
worshipped he was at least respected.

MInnto Dohn had an action on trial beforo
Justice lloach ot the Supremo Court yesterday
for a separation from Policeman Louis Bonn.
Sho testified that after fourteon years ot mar
ried lite they had separated In 1800, and she
returned to bor mother. Dohn called at hor
mother's homo.
"He took oft his shield," said she, "and threw
it on tho floor, saying that ho would never gtvo
mo a cent, nnd this although my mother lent him
tho money to buy his placo on the poltco force."
Q. Did ho over mako more money than hie
salary! A, Ob, yes; he would come homo and
show tuo $23, 913, $10, or ?3, which he would
say ho had mado on tho outside, and ho often
brought homo n new hat or a new suit of
clothes which wore not purchased out ot his
salary.
Objection was mndo to this evidence, as It woa
said to bo nn attompt to reflect on tho defendant,
but It was allowed by Justlco Donch.
I)r, Leo Hlbbc, who has boon connected with
Hellovuo Hospital, Is medical director ot the
German Polycllnlo and has been tho physician
ot Mrs. Ilohn, was asked It Mr. Dohn had not ob
jected to his visits, and replied:
" Yes; llohn both spoke to mo nnd wrote to
moon tho subject. If 1 hud evor hoard ray name
was to bo mentioned ln this way In connection
with Mrs. Holm's I would never havo gone to see
her."
Q. If she had feelings ot affection toward yon
you could not help that, of courso t A. No, nor
have I over heard sho hail. I ne er saw It cither.
Dohn said sho was Infatuated with me. but there
was no foundation for such a statoment.
Policeman llohn, called ln his own behalf, said
his wife was extravagant. His examination
proceeded:
Q. You objected to Dr. Hlbbe's visits at your
house I A. Well, yes. She spoko to me about
htm, and said her head was turned by him and
that she did not caro for me any more. I said to
her, "You aro a very foolish woman," Tho mat
ter ended there. We never enmo to blows,
Q. Did sho say anything olso about tho doc
tor I A, Sho said she was sorry sho loved him.
On Mrs. Dohn Iwlng recalled sue said;
"Why, I was old enough to havo better sense
than to tall In lot o with Dr. Hlbbc"
O. Did you ever tell your husband that Dr.
Hlbbe had hypnotized you I A. Never. I said
ho had hypnottxod patients ln the hospital, but
he never cast any spell ovor me. I never heart
Dr. Hlbbe say I was the only woman in the
world for him. My husband has often told mo
about all the women ho loved, and especially

James C. Keating, an octogenarian, who was
arrested on Sunday night as o vagrant on tho
pier at the toot of Rector street, when arraigned
in Centre Street Court yesterday produced from
a hiding place In his clothes a bag containing
twenty-two sovereigns. Ho said ho had Just
returned from Ireland, and showed Magistrate
Flammer a draft for A 1.700 ln his namo from
tho Hank of Ireland on the Hank of Kngland.
" That makes o er $9,600." bo Bald. " I come
from Cincinnati, and Senator George H. Pendle
ton wna my friend whllo he was alive. I won't
say where I am going or v, ho aro my friends,
for that's nobody's business but my own. I have
a railroad ticket to Mount Vernon and I may go
there, but again 1 may not."
Magistrate Flammer, believing that Keating
was partly deranged, instructed Policeman
Jones ot the Church street station to take
Keating to the Kmlgrant Industrial Bank on
Chambers street to see If he were known Ihcro.
" If ho Is not recognized there." continued tho
Magistrate, "take him to tho Commissioner of
Charities at CO Third avenuo. Tho people there
will find out If he has any friends. Ho Is too old
and feeble to be trusted on tho street with so
much money."
Keating refused to leave the court for over
half an hour. He talked loudly and prevented
tho court cases from proceeding. Finally two
officers of the court squad assisted Jones in es
corting Keating from tho room.
Keating was haled to Uellevuc Hospital, where
he was prevailed upon, very much against his
will, to take a bath. After tho bath a bowl of
tea was given him. After drinking it he ex
claimed, " Thank God!" Ho was then put to bed.
fltZVOJS TTVBB1DE LOSES BIS CASE.
Trie Ce.rt r Appeals Holds Tbat tbe. Ktttrez
Itaa Clufc Ilad a tUgbt Expel Him.
WAgiitscmw, June 7. Tho Court of Appeals
to-day decided the caso of Prince Augustine de
Yturblde against the Metropolitan Club of this
city in favor of tbo club. About one year ago
the Prince was expelled from the club for con
duct unbecoming a gentleman in having said
that a daughter of a member of the club had
sent anonymous letters to society leaders here.
Yturblde applied to the District Supreme Court
for a writ of mandamus to compel the club to
reinstate him. Issues wero Joined and tbo caso
was tried before a Jury, tho club winning the
suit, Yturblde's counsel took exceptions to the
rulings of the Court and appealed to the Court
of Appeals, with tbe result just noted.
Tbe Court holds that the law authorizing the
incorporation of the club also gives It the power
to make laws for Its gov rnment nnd for the en
forcement of them, and It was not shown that the
club exceeded its rights in expelling the Prince.
Tbe main contention of Yturblde upon tho trial
was that he offered to substantiate his stato
mentsund prove what hesaid about tho member's
daughter, but upon his admission that ho mado
the statement as charged tho Hoard of Governors
of the club expelled him. Yturblde denies that
tbe right of defense was given him, but the
Court of Appeals, ln passing upon the case, says
it was not shown to tbe Court or Jury to what
extent the defence he sought to make would
Justlry the board ln changing Its determination
to expel him, and therefore no ground exists
either in the courts ruling or upon the evidence
adduced for a reversal of the Judgement of the
lower court.

" Sacred n Concerts on Iho Ileacb.
Abbcrt Park, N. J., Juno 7. Tho Sunday
evening concerts on " Founder " Bradley's beach
pavilions are meeting with opposition from min
isters and church peoplo. Tho band Is em
ployed by the city authorities at nn expense of
4,500 for the summer. Prof. Bartow of Brook
lyn commenced a season's engagement on Sat
urday night and the first concert was given last
night.
At tho meeting of tho Common Council to
night the opposition took the form of a petition,
and tho Rev. Dr. W. E. Jones of Philadelphia,
who owns a cottage hero, said that the better
element of the peoplo are opposed to tho so
called sacred concerts. Last year, ho said, the
pastors ot all tho churches in the city entered a
remonstrance against secular airs being played
by the band on the Sabbath. " It Is a sorious
matter," hu said, "for Asbury Park, and if con
tinued will eventually hurt tbe city, morally
Mill I11IUII,
Mrs. Wellington Whlto, who represents tbe
Women's National Sabbath Alliance, said she
heard the band play last night nnd was aston
ished that such airs woro allowed to be played
in Asbury Park. "If those pieces wero sacred,"
she continued, "then I don't know what sacred
music is. it Is Just such innslo that brings an
undesirable class of people to your city. At At
lantloClty, where our Alliance mado a protest,
the band nan been Instructed not toplnyon Sun
days. Six days' music Is enough for any place."
Tbe Rev. Israel U Istar Hathaway. I). D., Gen
eral Secrotary of tho American Sabbath Union
at 203 Broadway, New York, said it was not
fanaticism that prompted him tomakoan appeal
for the prohibition of Sunday night concerts, but
tho good of tho city and the observance ot tho
Fourtli Commandment,
"What has been termed tho American Sab
bath," said he, "has beon lost. There is an old
adage that 'a atltch In time saves nine.' 'You
let the nose of the camel ln and ho will squocze
his body through.' All church bodies aro aroused.
Tbe Sabbath Is tho corner atone of civilization.
Let us lie careful about tlio entering nodgos."
"Founder" Bradley, who Is a membor of the
Council, offered a resolution that tho Muslo
Committee preparo such Sunday night pro

remlnlnltj The Last Meeting or the So
elslj Until Meat Autumn Held leaterday.
Borosls held its last meeting ot the season at
the Waldorf yestorday, and a largo number of
mimbflrs and guests woro present. After the
usual luncheon all repaired to tho ballroom of
tho hotel. Tho programmo, consisting of muslo
and rocltntlous, was unusually elaborate, and
most of tho papers read had Bhakcspoaro for
their subject. Mrs. Mary Lyon Datno Hall,
President of tho society, was in tho chair. She
announced that tho themo for tho day was "A
Midsummer Day's Dream," nnd introduced
Sirs. Jonnlo do la M. Lozlcr. Dr. Lozler's pnpor
was entltlod "A Day Spent with Shakespeare."
" I will ask you to spend a dny with our prince
of poets In a fairyland of his oivn creation," she
began. "Ho shall bo our guldo and our Inter
preter, for ho speaks tn all langungcs and knows
nil lands, and, as much ns possible tn his match
less words, wc shall tell our littlo story of a day
in tho country.
" We havo often asked oursolvcs, hlcu do wo
most lovo In tho poet, his thoughts or his lan
guage! His words aro undeniably great, bub
thoy aro shared by poets, philosophers, and
seers, and nro Indeed common to humanity.
But Shakcspoaro's thoughts are so melted Into
passion, so sparkling with wit, bo Iridescent
with tho piny of fancy, and so mobile lienoath
their veil ot language that wo scarca know
whero ono begins or tho other ends, and, there
fore, vi 0 call tho dollclous wholo poetry, and tin
dor that magio spell vo transplant ourselves
Into tho Bhakcspoaro country."
Tho spcakor then quotod innnyot tho master's
host tributes to nature, and so wovo them to
gether that even thoso with tho least Imagina
tion who listened to her forgot their luxuriant
surroundings and for a few minutes found
themselves very near to natUro's heart.
"Tho Beo ln Song nnd Story " was tho Bubjoc't
of Mrs. Isabella S. Lovcland s paper. Sho was
followed by Miss Mary L. Bockcr. Beforo the
latter camo to tho platform Mrs. Margaret
Ravonhlll said that Bho felt that tho members
present would llko to know that tho lasttlmo
Miss Becker appeared before tbem sho had to bo
placed uiKin tho President's tablo in order to be
seen. A gencrnl laugh follow ed when a tall, dashing-looking
soung woman camo forward. Sho
read a pleasing paper on tho "Songs of bhakca
pcaro," saying that a study of them proved that
tho peasantry in Shakespenro's timo wore fond of
music nnd that tho poet himself was familiar
with tho folk songs of tho day.
"Tho England of Shakespeare" was Mrs.
Miriam Mason Greeley's subject. She Raid:
"The French Cynics say, v, hen ever anything
startling occurs. 'Find the woman.' In tho
glorious pageant of history. In tbo sixteenth
century, on the singe on which Shukospcaro
actud his own brilliant port, wv find, indeed, tho
w oman. a grand and gallant Queen, who fostered
the hold Imaginative spirit of tho England of
Shakespeare. Tho ago of Elizabeth Is tlio true
dramatic epoch of tho Anglo-Suxon raco. With
a herolo (Jucon born to rule natures an
intrepid na her own, tho mad wish
of adventuro tilled tho nlr. stirring men's
brains to frenzy. The prosaic details of doily
life. houacH without chimneys or glass, strcota
without pavements, nnd tno-tinnl forks,
seemed a atrango contrast to tho poetic mag
nificence of fabulous new-world tnles of a land
to bo wooed and v on ni ross the sen. Tho dar
ing of our Viking forefathers rovived in Iho
dashing buccaneers, braving woatorly gales to
bring homo glistening ingots from tbo far sea
lonn.
"Tho England of Shakespeare had gathered ln
tbo treasures of tho world to aid her own swift
growth. Caxton's printing press, copied from
Germany, became hor sla c. und Galileo's tclo
Bconoswept tho starryskles. Tho glory of tho
Italian Itenalssani ecamo to adorn tbo court with
Titian's resplendent palette. The spiritual con
flict of Luther irystalllzed, making her tbu llrst
of Protestant nations. The cthcrcaligenius of
Spenser, oxllcd In Ireland, sent forth tho Fuerio
Qucene. Bacon wroto philosophy for her guid
ance, Sidney dtod a hero flgntlng in her defence.
Drako took wing around the mighty globe to win
her fresh glory. Leicester planned courtly rovols
which made life fairyland; but more than all.
the subtle genius of rare Ben Jonson, Mnrlowo
nnd Shakespeare wrought England's laughter
love, history, and tears into the most wonderful
maaterplcces of drama that ever hlcssod an age.
"This was tho England of Shakespeare tho
environment in which his mighty brain found
an earthly home. That acute critic of our liter
ature, M, Talnu, said: Shakeapcaro's Is the
moat creative mind that ever engaged in tho
exact copy of tho details of actual exlstenco. In
the dnzrlliig caprice of fancy, in the profound
complications of superhuman passions. This
great ago nlune could have coddled such a child.
This soul. Infinitely complex, becomes, hy case
less metamorphosis, a sort ot abstract ot tbe
universe." "
Mrs. Agnes W. Mastlrk followcdMrs.Orrels ,
taking "The Times of Shnkcspoaro" for hor sub
ject. Sho said that she hated to cross swords
with Mrs. Greeley, but that cold facts compolled
her. She dwolt ut length on tho wild life led by
Sbakespcaro's associates, and the low state of
c tllzatlon existing nt that time. In conclusion,
sho admitted that she was sorry not to be ablo
to present Shakespeare In more attractttc sur
roundings, adding that It was all the more won
derful that bis plays should be so freo from
taint whon written ln such a debuuihod and
licentious nge.

DUXRABDS AT TUB WHITE HOUSE.
Tbey Came rrom Their Conrertme In Maryland,
to Shake Hands with the "High Chief."
Washington, June 7. "Well, hero's Just
what 1'vo beon looking for," facetiously re
marked a Kentucky ofllco seokcr to a BUN re
porter nt tho White House this afternoon.
In tho dlstanco the Kentucklan saw what ha
conceived to bo a bunch of Western farmers,
with long, flowing whiskers, antiquated hats
and garni on ta, high-water trousers, tnnnod
faces, and big hands. Most ot thorn wero chow
Ing tobacco and spitting on tho Whlto Hotiso
portico. Thoy woro homespun garments, nnd
were stoop-shouldorcd from having followed tho
furrow. As Ihoy drow nearer thoy woro recog
nized as a body of Dunkords who arrived ln
Washington this morning. Tholr annual con
ference Is being held In Fredorlck, Md and In
order to permit thorn to seo the sights ot Wash
ington an oxcurslon was arranged at bed-rock
rates.
" It I had a gold brick or a littlo poa and throe
sholls, or If I woro n short chnngo man, I'd sot
up htiBlncss right on tho Whlto Houso portico,"
snld tho Kentucklan. "These nro tho grccnost
looking peoplo I've seen sinco lsst fall on a
county fnli grounds."
'Iho most striking feature of their mako-up
Is tho long blnek coat, buttoned tightly around
tho throat. Most of them carried big cotton
umbrellas with crooked handles. Tho women
wore black dresses nnd black bonnets, something
llko those worn by Cathollo BIstorB or nuns.
All day theso queer-looking peoplo visited tho
Whltn Houso. Word was passed along that tbo
President would receive tho public nt 3. nnd
this announcement served to collect all tho
DunkardH ln tow 11, and lltcy w ore on hnnd long
beforo tho appointed hour watting to shako
hands with tlio "high chief," as Ihey called
him. Thoy wore scattered through tho East
Room, nnd when tho President entered they
lined up in twos. Tho President had a Rood
word for each. Mr. McKlnloy has good reasons
for remembering tho Dunknrcls, as It wns duo to
part to their influenco thot hu was defeated for
Congress in 180U. Soveral Democratic politicians
Passed around through Holmes county, iuMr,
McKinlny's old district, where there is a big
Diinknrd colony, nnd offered tin dippers for Bnlo
nt Ifl apiece. 0( course this was nn extraordi
nary nrlco. but the Dunkards were told that tho
McKlnley hill had ralsod tho duty on tin, nnd
consequently tho prlco for tin dippers was put
up. They then turned In to defeat Mr. McKln
loy, nnd how well thoy succoodod history shows.
After the President had shaken hands with
tho Dunknrds. they collected out on the portico
nnd talked over religious matters. Just ns thoy
were about to loave. ono big. swarthy fellow,
ovidcntlj spokesman for tho party, yelled out to
several of tho Whlto House omplovecs: "God
bless you In jour work, brother.'' Then they all
fllod down the stops and out into Pennsylvania
