Mrs Woodbury nays that Mrs Eddy's words in her address, ''Tho doom o' the Babylon ah woman refened to in Uetelatlon is being tuiniled," referred to her. "meaning that B the plaintiff was and Is the wicked, By unclean, woman refened tn In the Book j n' lievelntlon nnd that sho had com- mitted the crime of adultery and the crime B ot fornication, and meaning that the plaintiff for her said alleged sinful nature and netlous had suffered a great misfortune and j bHrenenieul ami punishment, to nit. the loss y il- alh untorenid of her hiisliand, who had tee us tlm defendant well knew, plaintiff's H com Ton and Kiippnit, lier devoted friend nnd onstant proteeior for twenty-five years" I lie nords "This viomnn. drunken with the Hood of tho s.iinli nud with the blood of flfll .a- 'he martyrs ot .lesus." also In Mrs. flflT, .bBHHbW.

''ri" Hr. complainant says K.flflflBSBm "9 ( ed to Mrs. vi09dl)ury and meant that Mrs. Woodbury "possessed the aid alleged mental power, to cause eiek ncss and death which enabled her to take life, by the oxerciseof mental notion, that she bad exerolsed said power and had thereby killed a friend, or follower of or believer In the defend ant: end that tald successful exerolse of said alleged power had rendered plaintiff unreason ing ana reckless and aggressive as it a man whole drunken with wine. ' The next uuotatlon from Mrs. Eddy's nil dress It nt follows. In tho complaint: Drunk with the wine of hor fornication, would enter even the church, and retaining the heart ol the hntlot and ths purpose of tho destroying angel pour wormwood Into tho watsrs-the disturbed human mlnd-to drown the strons: swimmer, struggling for the shore .liming for truth nnd If possible to poison such nnd drink of the IMiig water." Theso words, the complaint says, meant that Mrs. Wood bin 7 had com mil ted the crime of fornication and that plaintiff, who was known to the defendant to have been a married woman nt the time nu sought ndmlsslon to saldchnrch. na aforesaid, had repeatedly committed thecrilne of adul tery and by the said adulteries and fornication had been rendered unreasoning and reckless and aggressive as Is n man who Is drunken with wine, and that plaintiff wished to enter and become a member of said The First Church of Christ Helen 1 1st, ns aforetald. with out repenting of her said alleged adultery, and purposing to excite therein discord and dis turbance, nnd to turn the members of said churah from complete loynlty to the defendant and from ndheronoe totae defendant's teach ings which she. th defendant, denominates Truth, as aforesaid." The complaint proceeds to quote again from Mrs. Eddy these words: "But the recording angel standing with right foot on the sea and his Isft foot on the earth, has In his hand a bonk open that uncovers and kills this mystery of iniquity and Interprets the mystery of god linesshow the first Is finished and the ssoond Is no longer a mystery or a miracle but a manel. casting out evil and healing the sick.'" And these mean, the complaint says, that the defendant's book "having been miraculously given to thewoild discloses and successfully opposes the said alleged mental power of the plaintiff to cause sloknett and suffering and death and makes known the said alleged power of tho said alleged ditcoy erlesof the defendant at tet forth In her said book to heal and to save through divine power through God: that the plaintiffs said alleged mental power for er 1 Is ended by and by reason ot the things wrltton In and tho Inherent power of, defendant's said book," Mrs. Eddy is quoted as saying: "And a voice was heard saying, come out of her, my people, that ye receive, not of her plsgues, for her sins have rsachsd unto heaven nnd Ood hath remembered her Iniquities." The oomplalnt says that this meant that "n voles from tome mysterious region, as out of heaven, and mora than human, the voice of Ood, was heard by defendant warning the fol lowers of defsndaat to abandon and leave plaintiff entirely alone and warning de fendant's follouer nnd all so-called Christian Scientist against the alleged lies ot plaintiff; riit.t Is to say, aealnst the reprettntatlont of the plaintiff carefully and consoltntleutly and publicly made to disclose the false nnd fraudulent character of the de fendant's olals-is. and the barmtul character of the defendant's ttanhlngs, and mesnlngthat the suld loss and beteavoment of the plaintiff were the punishment of Ood visited upon the plaintiff for her opposition to the defend ant, and for the plslntlfl'n efforts to extend tho knowledge of the false nnd utterly fraudulent character ol defendant's claims and that similar punishment would be visited upon othert who might sympathlrewith plain tiff's efforts, and Intending to frighten de fendant's fol!owe,-s from any support or any countenance of tho plaintiff, or her endeavors." And again the complaint quotes: "DouDlo unto her douhle aocording to her works: In the oup which she huth filled, fill to her double. This. It nys. mesne that so-called Christian Scientists were directed by the de fendant to umploy ttvlr alleged mental power to cause sloknett. suffering and dsath to pun ish the plaintiff, nnd cause her to suffer for her nlleged sins and her opposition to the defend ant, and that the plalutlfTs punishment should be twice as great as hnr alleged offence. Ones more quoting the mother ot Christian Rslenoe tho complaint repeats these words: "Forehesalth In her bsart I am no widow." which mean as Mrs. Eddy used them, the plaintiff avert. " that the plaintiff know In her heart that ftie death of her husband, as afore said, did not make her a widow. In that shs centlnusd to live In criminal relatione." The complaint says thnt divers good and worthy citizens, believing the slanders so pro mulgated, relate to have transactions or ac quaintance with her and that her reputatloa hat been darat ged to the extent of SlfXl.OOO. Mr. Peabody tays that he will be able to prove that bis client Uas the subject ot the extraor dinary passagat complained ot and that the libel, embraclnft the whole ot Christian Hcience. cannot be made Intelligible to a jury without bringing Into ot'urt the most extravagant ot Urs.

A guett of th Hotel NotJiarlacd reported on last Friday to Arthur 11. Conway, the private detective there, that n pearl soarfpln of con siderable valuo had dlsappeired from his room. On tho following day another guest ot the name of Heaton told ot the loss ot a scarfplu set with diamonds and rubles and valued at $100. Many oUitr guests had previously re ported the lost ot Jewelry from their looms. A majority of those who had been robbed had rooms on the floor which was In charge ot Kate (Julnlln, a chambermaid. Conway aays that he had mistrusted ths woman for some time, but that tho managers otthe hotel vyould listen to nothing against her. She had a splendid reputation for honesty and efficiency which had followed her from the old Metropolitan Hotel, the Park Avenue Hotel and the Fifth Avenuo Hotel. Hhe had served for fourteen years In those three hotels and had nevor had a shadow of suspicion thrown on her, nltheugh many mysterious thefts were committed in those hotels while she was eiaployed there. Tho last two complaints decided Conway, however, and he called In Dettotive Sergeant Gargan of the central ofdoe. The Quinlln woman was arrested on Monday afternoon nad her room wae searched. A trunk was found there which was so fall of olothlng and jewelry that it could be locked only with diflloulty. The misting pins were there; also hundreds of other pleoes of jewelry. Five hundred lace handkerchiefs, some of them ot great value, formed past ot the contents ot the trunk, which also Included ICO collar and cuff but tons ot gold, many ot them set with precious stones, nnd two lace shawls that are said to be worth from $1,000 to $2,000. The total value of the contents of that trunk was said to fall verr little short ot $10,000. The woman said that she had found tho ar ticles on the floors after their owners had left the hotels. She declared that in most cases sho had not kuown who tho owners were, nnd she had disliked the Idea of letting some one else get possession ot that to whloh she had equal right. Among the articles found In the trunk were many that had belonged to tho late John Gra ham, the famous orlminal lawyer, who lived nt the old Metropolitan Hotel while the Quinlln wo man was employed there. It was subsequently discovered that she was ths wife of John Quin lln, who was Graham's private secretary. The woman said that her husband had not worked for a long time and that the hnd been support ing him.

When the delivery wagon comes along, the driver finds thnt the street he has been looking up has been wiped off the map. Here are a few of the chances: Franklin avenue is now Croton avenue; Jack son avenue le changed to Beaumont avenue; Monroe avenue will be Cambrelllng avenue: Colomblne avenue Is tho new name for IB'Jd street: Fulton avenue has changed into Bel mont avenue : Jefferson and St. John's avenues have been consolidated Into Hughes avenue, Adams street gives way to Aaams place and Lorillard street will be known hereafter as Lorlllard p'aeo. The annoyance arising from the change ot names Is further added to by the fact that nearly all the streets are torn up for sewtor construction; that dirt and rock are E lied up In small mountains; that grades are eing raised, and that at least a dozen streets are closed to traffic. rHiziPPiirBs iroma HArixa.

CAKSOX, AND XEir METHODS SEEDED. Jllnuiet l'nlplt Talk on tho Higher Criticism and the Kniphaslzlng of the Saclal Side of Church Work Churches Gat 0,300 Members out of 80.000 New Brooklynltes. The ttatementtot the Rev, John F, Carson ot the Central Presbyterian Church. Brooklyn, at the fall meeting ot the Brooklyn Presbytery on Monday, that thero were In that borough some (100.000 people absolutely untouched by the church, either Protestant or Roman, wns quite n shock to his fellow members of the Presby tery and was a matter of much discussion nmnng clergymen of other denominations yes terday. The first Impression gained was thnt Dr. Carson had exaggerated the matter, which was precisely what that clorgyman ex pected. Ho admits himself that when he finished figuring on the matter some days ago ho was amazed at the results and realized that It would bo hard tn make anyone bellevo that there was so much religious apathy In a com munity so long and widely known as ths City of Churches. The large amount ot work be fore ths Pretbytery on Monday mado it Impos sible for Dr. Carson to go Into the subject as lengthily ns he would have liked. When he wns seen by a Bun reportor yettorday he talked freely on the matter. "I don't wish to be understood ns taking a pessimistic view ot this question," he said, "because the action of the Presbytery yester day In appointing committees to make plans for tho widening of tho Church's Influsncs In Brooklyn shows that we are waking up to conditions, and preparing to coco with them. Nothing Is more enconraglng than this waking up on the part of the constituted authorities of the Church, tor I am convinced thnt ths con ditions I referred to yesterday areas much a result of apathy on the part ot ministers and church people as anything cite. I look Into the future with great hope, fornow that we are going tottiroureelvet I haven't n doubt that wa will reach the watt majority ottho enor mous non-church going population In a very short time. "Despite my optimistic vlewotthefutureldo not hesitate to say that the present conditions are absolutely appalling. I think that many ministers realized ns I did that there were too many non-ohurcbgolng people in Brooklyn and that the class was growing, but thero wasn't a suspicion ia my mind or any one else's mind that it had reached such an enor mous figure. When I flnlsbsd my calculations, battd on published ttatlatics, and found that there are neatly 000.000 people In our borough who do not go to church nud are not under church Influence in any degree. I was so tboiked that I thought I mutt be mistaken, "Butwhon I went over It tnoor three timet I taw that It wat all straight and I felt the tooner my fellow clergymen knew of It ths more chanco for n change there would bs. It it no wonder they were thocked and skeptical. It was to bo expected, but it there are any who doubt the accuracy ot my reckoning. I think I can convince them that it Is all right "Thero are 130.000 persons in the member ship of the Protestant and Jewish ahurches In Brooklyn and there are 281.000 In the Roman Catholic churches. These figures do not Indi cate the relative strength of the Roman and Protestant Churches, because in ths formsr trs Included all who nra baptized, as well as children, while in tho Protestant Church we only Include adults. These figures show a total of about 411,000 church members In our borough, ' A careful study of ths Sunday School statis tics shows that there are Ifitl.OOO Protestant children who are In the Sunday sohools. In addition, there are about 70.000 persons In directly connected with the churches, Sunday schools and mission stations, which leaves 004.000 people out ot a population of l.'AlO.OOO who are absolutely untouched by any Church or its work. Just think of that, one-half ot the people ot Brooklyn not reached by any Catho lic or Protestant Church. Am I not right to say it is appalling? "I want tn say that I have all my calculations nn the published reports of the Protestant and Cathollo churches and Sunday aoheols ot Brooklyn, up to Jan, 1. 1800. I have looked In vain for some Improvement since then. There has been none. The Church of Brooklyn slneo the beginning ot tbeyesrhaa just been hold ing Its own. I mean by that that It is as well oft now as It was at the time ot Issue of the last annunl reports. As a matter of fact, however, it is not holding its own In proportion to the in create nf population and has not slnee the be ginning of 181)8. "Ths tncrenso In population last year was between SO.OOOand 100.000. The actual In crease In the membership ot the Roman Cath ollo Church was 3,100; In the Protestant Churoh it was '2.'2tiH. Bo with an Increase ot popula tion ofoverSO.OOOthe Increase Inchurch mem bership. Including all denominations, was only a little over 5,000. There ought to be an In crease in chureh membership In Brooklyn of at least one-half of the lncreao tn population. It Is reasonable to expect it, and the Church Is not holding It's own so long as It doesn't get it. "The neighborhood In whloh my church Is located Is what might be called a church-going neighborhood. A short time ago my assistant went on a little tour around here and found seventy families In n radius of a few blocks that had moved in here within a year, and the members of which were church members in the places from which they came, but had not allied themselves with any church since coming to Brooklyn. Nothing could he more appalling to my mind than actual church members giving up thn practice of going rsgularlv to a house of worship on Sunday. "I am of thu opinion that church methods need revision. A more earnest evangelistic spirit la what wo wnnt. The Chureh should pot wait for the people to come to It. when it Is apparent that it waits lu vain. It should go out snd reach the people. Uereto'ore evan gelistic movements have almost all been out side of the church, and so not as fruitful as they might be. But when the Church is Itself awakened to the religious destitu tion of the community, and to a full realization ot facts as they really are, she has the means to supply vthat Is needed, and It Is her duty to see that the peo ple are reached 1 urn delighted to say that 1 have never seen a more earnest spirit manlfosted by ministers than has been shown this fall. With the awakening to the condi tions has oome u determination to Improvs them, and at oner. The greatest enthusiasm wat thown at yesterday's meeting of the Presbytery, and already committees made up nf ministers nnd churoh members are nt work devising ways und meant to end, the growing indifference to the Church und itt work. "I have no hesitation in mentioning two or three thlncs which in my oninlon have Injured the Chureh In tho eyet ot outsiders. Theological oputroversy in the past It one thing and another is the dlbcnstlon nf the hlgherctltlclsm. which la. perhaps. Well and right In the class room of a theological semi nary, but out of place in the pulpit. Then again there Is the emphasis placed on the social side of church work tlie soup kitchen, the gymnasium and such devices, which have been used to reach the people, but which have iiilmlmled tlie force of the Church I believe In all ot theso things In their place, but the Ceoplecan get them outside of the Church, The uslness of the Church is to omphasire the spiritual and to bring man Into harmony with his God. "For the first tune In Its hlstoiy the Brook lyn Pi eshvtery spent thtee hours yesterday dis cussing the 'unchurched masses.'

Judgment with cottt was rendered against the Brooklyn Heights Railroad Company by Justice Van Wart In ths Second District Munic ipal Court, Williamsburg, yesterday in a suit of ths city of New York to recover the amount of a penalty for a violation of an ordinance ot tho former city of Brooklyn, which required care operated by electricity to be brought to a full stop at certain crossings. It was alleged that on May 21 car 800 ot the Nassau line failed to come to a atop at First street as the ordinance required. The railroad company did not dispute this but contended that the requirements of such an ordinance are unreasonable und there fore void. Jostles Van Wart, in his decision, says: "While it Is ths duty or the Court to determine the reasonableness of ihsordmance.lt is ap parent that tks Court should not determine an ordinance to be unreasonable on alight evidence, as such a course would be to take tho lawmaking power from the city legislature and place It in the hands nf the Court. It is necessary for the defendant to satisfy tho Court that no reason whatever exists for the fiassage of the ordinance In question. This It I ias failed to do. It may be that the proximity ofaehnols. churches, asylums or Institutions for old or feeble people afforded an ample reason for the adoption ot the oidlnance and sufficient to sustain Its validity " DUND MAN IDENTIFIES CORPSE.
